Even though fall in Phoenix isn't exactly like other parts of the country, the subtle shifts in the temperature and the leaves inspire changes in our beauty routines. Cheryl Kramer Kaye, beauty director for NextTribe.com, a website for women aging boldly, talks about the products that will make us look and feel fabulous for fall.
The most common beauty change people make is with their hair color. Fall seems to demand richer colors that reflect the colors of those changing leaves-red, gold, orange, pink. And now you can get those shades at home, right in your own shower with Aloxxi Instaboost Color Conditioning Masques, which deposit gorgeous color while giving your hair loads of softness and shine, as well. You can do just a few strands or all over color. You'll see a dramatic difference on light hair, a subtle change on dark hair, and the colors wash out in 10-15 washes. They're $20 each at aloxxi.com or at any of the 16 salons in the Valley that carry Aloxxi products.
