MAINTAINING THICK, KNOTED HAIR AT THE BEACH✨
Hi everyone! Having thick hair is great because it comes with added volume and allows for endless updo possibilities. With that being said, there are obviously some cons. In the summers by the pool or at the beach I used to struggle with maintaining my hair. The straight strands would knot up when I got out of the water, frizz from the humid weather, and in general, overheat my body. If this sounds relatable, here is a product I always pack in my beach bag that has changed my beach-going experience. GARNIER - Fructis Triple Nutrition Curl Nourish Butter Cream leave-In Treatment is made with coconut oil which is designed to strengthen the hair. The cream also provides frizz control which is great for those extra humid days. This product is advertised for curly hair (which it works well on) but has also helped with my straight hair. I apply a decent amount from the ends of my hair working it up to the top. Next I brush out my hair with a wide-tooth comb (mine is from Target, but you can find one everywhere). This cream has left my thick hair softer, more manageable, and knot-free. At the end, I braid my hair out of the way so it can be maintained off of my body in the heat. What tips do you have for maintaining thick hair in the summer?⬇️⬇️

Not only does it keep my hair from getting oily, but it adds instant volume. My all time favorite is the Batiste line of dry shampoos. Second, I add subtle waves using a 1-inch curling iron.

The curls will add some body to my hair and prevent it from looking dull and flat. It may be super easy, but these are my go to tricks for thin hair ✨

Another way to deal with thin hair
First of all I want to say I almost was about to not post this because literally this is me completely unfiltered and I dunno, I just hate my barely-there eyebrows and grey roots, but this is Cherie- where we celebrate beauty without barriers so 🙌🏼 I thought I’d add a few of my tips to dealing with my thin hair and how to naturally add volume with next to no effort. First of all, after a shower I spray with a detangler. Having thin hair, we want to keep as much of it as we can, so spraying a detangler in will make your hair easier to brush and lead to less fall out. Second- and this is a tip I found out years ago, but not sure how common knowledge it is- but I brush from the root, upwards. This again, helps decrease fallout because if you start from the root, you are prone to more breakage and hair fallout from the tip. Brushing from the ends-up kind of decreases tension when you do finally reach the roots and brush from root to tip. I also only brush my hair after a shower, I never brush during the week, and again, this is all to prevent unnecessary hair loss and breakage because honestly I’m shocked at how much hair I find in my brush every time i brush my hair. Again these are all tips on how to thin hair, through managingAG hair - Moisture Conditioning Mist Detangling Spray breakage 👌🏼

My Choice of Blow Dryer For Thin Hair
The biggest concerns for people with thin hair are to prevent further hair loss and thinning, and to create volume in the hair. I like to blow dry my hair instead of letting it air dry because I feel like I could get more volume this way. However, constant heat to the hair could lead to damage and create further hair loss and thinning. Therefore, today I will be introducing an affordable blow dryer that I have been using for years and is suitable for thin hair. Like I mentioned before, I have relatively thin hair, mostly due to constant bleaching and colour dying, but also genetics. I have oily hair roots, and that makes my hair look even flatter. On the other hand, I have lots of split ends because the bottom of my hair is thinner, dryer and more prone to breakage. Often my hair feels like grass because it is so dry and rough with many knots that cannot be easily brushed through. I have been trying to repair my hair through applying lots of hair products but I also noticed that it is important to use the right tools to protect the hair as well. Blow dryer is a staple in my hair care routine, as I almost shower everyday, which means that I use a blow dryer almost everyday. Hence, choosing the right product is very important to me. Currently, I’ve been loving to use the Remington model D3190 ($20) because it has multiple settings that can be tailored to suit different hair’s needs. It has three heat settings, from low to high, and three wind settings, from weak to strong. Lastly, it also has an instant cool temperature setting. Remington is a famous brand for affordable hair tools, at least here in Australia. The price is super affordable yet it has multiple functions and the product can last for years, I’d say it’s definitely a good bargain. How I use this product is that I turn on the strongest wind setting, while using medium heat. I would start drying from the hair root, which would create more volume and dry the hair quicker overall. Then I would cool my hair with the lowest temperature setting or the instant cool one so my hair does not overheat and get damaged. After years of using this tool, my hair loss problem has been reduced and it can help me get silky straight hair with volume on the top. I would recommend this to my friends and family. The design is also simple and easy to use.

Let's Do a Hair Mask!
One of my favorite ways to keep my curly hair happy is a weekly hair mask! I do it every Sunday and there's a few different ways I like to apply it. This Sunday I did it a little different - but it's still just as effective! Here's how I masked this Sunday: 1. I started by detangling, I didn't have any product in my hair so this step was pretty easy. I use a wet brush when detangling my dry hair because it's more gentle. 2. I applied my Camille Rose - Oud Rich Infusion Moisture Treatment it's super rich and creamy. It's great for detangling and redefining curl pattern. As I apply I brush the product through with my wet brush. I focus also am sure to apply to the ends of my hair which tend to be more dry! 3. Once I've finished applying my deep conditioner I then go in with an oil on my scalp and throughout the lengths of my hair. I used the Camille Rose - Nangai & Tsubaki Strength Restore Hair Oil on my scalp and the Camille Rose - Oud Rich Infusion Hair Oil through the lengths. Both of these are thick oils that really seal the hair mask into the hair. 4. Apply either cling wrap or a plastic shower cap - this will keep the heat from out head trapped inside, which allows the hair mask to penetrate into the hair shaft. 5. Apply your Hot Head Thermal Hair Care - Chic Hot Head this is a microwavable heat cap that will also helps the deep conditioner to penetrate further into the hair shaft. 6. Leave on the mask for at least 20 minutes, I like to leave it on for an hour or more! 7. Rinse out your mask and then you can either shampoo and condition like you normally would, or I like to use just a cleansing conditioner to add even more moisture! I used the Camille Rose - Rose Cleansing Milk it's smells amazing and helps the lengthen my curls.
