Velcro rollers for a long lasting blow out!
My hair is long so blowing out my hair is an arm workout!! When I’m in a rush, being lazy, or when I want to just make styling my hair that much easier, I use this method. I rough blow dry my hair and curl just the ends with a 2 inch curling iron. This gives me the look of a blow out without the effort. My hair doesn’t take to curls too easily, they usually end I’m falling. Especially when I do large curls. So I like to set the curls with #Kitsch - Velcro rollers[products]#[FiveStars] It helps the flip last all week and I achieve a blow out look with minimal effort!
Adorable hair care brand that I approve!
Overall, I’m pretty impressed with this line. It’s affordable with gentle and nourishing ingredients for your hair. They have products that tackle scalp care specifically. This all speaks to me!! The two products that have naturally been incorporated into my routine is the THE inkey LIST - Salicylic Acid Exfoliating Scalp Treatment salicylic acid exfoliating hair treatment. I use a lot of products in my scalp and use a clarifying shampoo every few weeks. In between, this has been a great treatment to help with excessive build up or flakey scalp. The #The Inkey List - Shea oil nourishing hair treatment[products]#[FiveStars] shea oil nourishing hair treatment is extremely lightweight but feels very hydrating. I use it almost daily for my ends. It helps to avoid breakage without making my hair feel greasy or heavy. The other two products I’ve used a few times and plan on continuing to use to really determine my thoughts.

My current favorite shampoo!
I knew I liked this shampoo immediately after I used it but I’m doing this review 2 months in. My first impression remains. I look forward to shampooing my hair because of this product! amika: - 3D Colume Duo Volume and Thickening Shampoo + Conditioner It’s a great lather, smells yummy, and leaves my hair feeling super clean, hydrated, shiny and bouncy. I have no frizz, the cuticles lay down nicely. I really am obsessed. I wash my hair once a week and I find that I can go the full week without my hair feeling too dirty. I find sulfate free shampoos or clean shampoos in general are (1) overly pricey (2) weigh down my hair. Although on the pricier side, it’s a price point I can comfortably swing especially because of the results. I am looking forward to trying more and more amika products!

Heatless waves make for healthy hair!
2021 means extra self care! All month I will be doing masks, skin, and hair treatments to get myself on track. This includes avoiding using any heat on my hair! A great way to avoid heat but also give my straight hair texture is by using silicone hair curlers! My hair is very long so the easier way for me to use is by putting my hair in a ponytail and wrapping the ends of my hair around the curlers. I added OUAI - OUAI Wave Spray before i curled for extra texture. I left these in my hair for about 20 minutes and was pretty happy with the results. Definitely not a perfect curl and yes I do prefer heat - but for a no damage solution, I’ll take it! I’ll be reaching for these more often this month! What are some self care things you are doing in the new year?

5 minute face lift!
In the previous post, I talked about the nuface and want to document my journey to see if microcurrent truly works. In this video, I am showing how I use it. - I start with a clean washed face - Then I use a mask like layer of the hydrating leave on gel primer on one section of my face - I turn on the nuface mini and wait for it to beep - Then I drag the mini in lifting motions across my face and wait for the beep until I repeat - I end up doing each section about three times - I run the nuface on either side of my cheeks, jaw, forehead and neck I personally feel like I see immediate lifting which is why it motivates me to continue to use it. It also feels like a facial massage. I’m going to use this consistently for 30 more days and then we can compare my results! NuFACE - Mini Mini Facial Toning Device

Come on my micro current journey!
Come on my nuface journey with me! During the Black Friday sale, I purchased the nuface mini. This tool is provides an at home microcurrent treatment to help with facial contouring, toning, and firming of aging skin. I’ve been using it pretty consistently for 3 weeks now and already notice a difference! But now I want to track to ensure this is actually working! So here is my face in the morning after I applied my skincare. I’ll post an update after using it for 30 days. I have my hair down so there is no tugging. I hope to have positive results that I can see through my pictures! NuFACE - Mini Mini Facial Toning Device

Dermatologist’s Top Hair Loss Tips
Hair loss is one of the most common conditions I see, and unfortunately many people have wasted time with supposed "miracle cures" before they even come to see me. Hair loss can be frustrating, worrisome and even down right depressing BUT there are many solutions that can help. Here are my top tips for hair loss! 1. Time is hair! I say this nearly every time I talk about hair loss. Time is hair! What do I mean by that? Every type of hair loss is better treated early rather than later. This is especially true of conditions like central centrifugal cicatricial alopecia (CCCA). This is a type of scarring hair loss, meaning that once the affect hair has fallen out, it will never grow back. However, when treated early, we can halt the progression and preserve as much hair as possible. That's why it's so important to see a dermatologist as soon as you notice hair loss. 2. Don’t put too much hope in supplements! While there are a whole host of supplements on the market for hair loss, many don't have convincing data supporting their use as a single agent to regrow hair. Even more important is the fact that some hair supplements may actually be dangerous. Case in point: biotin. It has been touted as a treatment for hair loss for years. However, there is no data supporting its efficacy for hair growth, and it might actually be dangerous in some cases. 3. Know that there are options! While the prospect of regrowing your hair might seem hopeless, there are plenty of options available like topical minoxidil for androgenic alopecia (male or female pattern hair loss), laser devices and prescription treatments. As I stated before, checking in with a dermatologist will be the first step to find what's right for you. Rogaine - 5% Minoxidil Foam for Hair Regrowth #cheriepartner #dermatologist #hairloss #hair

How me (& my partner) got such white teeth!! 😱
#ad #cheriepartner Hey everyone! I thought I’d do a post on how I got such white teeth as it’s a question I ALWAYS get asked!! My friends always compliment my partners teeth too saying how white they are. And who doesn’t want bright pearly whites?! A few people have asked about the first photo of us and if I have edited our teeth white, and I say nope!! 🙊 the red lipstick also makes teeth suuuuper white 😍 I know my confidence has gone up so much after having braces and then getting them whitened- I always smile with my teeth now when before I always smiles with my mouth closed. In the past I’ve tried other teeth whitening at home kits and they worked, but was a process to order and took a lot of time to whiten them and I ALWAYS got teeth sensitivity with these kits. We also have both been using the Colgate *4 shades whiter* toothpaste for many years now, but over the last year I’m onto a great natural alternative- blac charcoal & bentonate clay whitening toothpaste which helps with the up keep of having white teeth. About 2 months ago we went into lush smiles in papamoa (Bay of Plenty, NZ region) to get my teeth whitened professionally as the owner wanted to collab with me and I was super excited as my teeth were still white but had gotten quite yellow over the year of not whitening them. OMG! After 3 15 minute sessions in one sitting my teeth went 6 shades whiter!! I was so happy with the results and usually costs $199 for a whitening session if you take a friend- perfect for special occasions when you want your teeth sparkling white!! 😍 Then she introduced her at home Lush Smiles whitening kits and WOW is all I can say! Soo easy to use- literally spread the whitening pen over the teeth and bite down on the LED mouth guard, turn on the light for fast active whitening and keep in for 15minutes! You only need to do this for a week! Each time my teeth got a shade whiter. And the best thing is, it’s vegan and I got NO teeth sensitivity I couldn’t believe it! Not even a tingle that night or the next day! So I got Matthew onto trying the whitening pens aswell. The 3 whitening pens last a while as a little bit goes a long way, and every time my teeth get a tad stained or before an event, I use this kit! I am now shade 2 on the tooth chart that comes with the kit (last image) and I used to be sitting at shade 3-4 before using the whitening kit. And the before and after was before I got them professionally whitened with lush smiles. PS they ship worldwide and she also gave me a discount code to share with you all a few weeks ago! It’s ALYSHIA10 for 10% off at https://www.lushsmiles.net/ ❤️ If you do end up buying this kit let me know!! It’s so worth it especially if you have struggled with yellow teeth for a while or if you suffer from tooth sensitivity. This home kit is designed for sensitive teeth, and it’s SO easy to use!! 😍 I hope you guys liked this review and it was helpful in some way! ❤️ #Lush Smiles NZ - Wireless teeth whitening device[products]#[FiveStars]
