If I'd known sooner...
All my life I have had shinny, straight hair. After I got pregnant, it got very dry and still straight, but frizzy. Frizzy was always something I thought was a curly haired thing, so I kind of thought it was just going to be my lot. I learned a little bit about keratin, so I was looking for the tresemme keratin shampoo (I did purchase it too), and spotted this product. I'm kind of in love. I wake up with a little frizz, and it's handled. and a little goes a long way. one pump is all I ever use
Drugstore Price w/ High End Quality FOR DRY HAIR
I have color-treated hair that is on the drier side. I tend to look for products that are hydrating and will tone my highlights. These products are my favorite drugstore products that are just as good as my high end ones. 🤍 TRESEmme Keratin Smooth Shine Serum I use this right after I get out of the shower and use this after applying heat to my hair. This helps with hydrating my hair throughout the day and tones down frizz. This is just as good as my high end Davines Oi Oil. After shower, this prevents my hair drying down frizzy and is a great product to use pre blow drying. This product does not leave hair oily either. The smell is amazing and makes my hair shiny! What more can you ask for? This product can be bought at any drugstore for less than $6. The lowest price that I found is at Target for $4.99. TRESemmé - Keratin Smooth Keratin Infusing Smoothing Serum 🤍TRESEmme Keratin Smoothing Spray I’ve been using this as a heat protectant since high school. It makes my hair smell good and smooth while preventing heat damage to my hair. Not to mention that it is only $5.99 at Target. TRESemmé - Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Shine Spray 🤍JOHN FRIEDA BLONDE HIGHLIGHT ACTIVATING SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER I used this duo on the daily when I’m not using my purple shampoo. This prevents my highlights from becoming dull and keeps them bright. I use the ones for darker blondes. This lathers and does not cause my hair to tangle. This makes my hair soft as well and I love the smell! It smells like a floral chamomile. I highly recommend this product especially if you have highlights. It will save you a trip to the salon because my highlights last long without ever becoming brassy.

SUMMER WAVES I’VE BEEN LOVING FOR PARTIES✨
My hair is straight and lays flat on my head so for nights out I love to add some texture to it with waves/curls. A new curling wand I have been loving is the CONAIR - Double Ceramic Triple Barrel Waver It creates effortless waves in as little as 15 minutes. How to: To start, I prep my hair with MOROCCANOIL - Moroccanoil Treatment to add some shine and tame down fly-always, and CHI - 44 Iron Guard Thermal Protection Spray to protect from heat damage. Next, I work in 1-2 inch sections starting from the back to the front until all the hair is complete. As you can see, I start from the top of the hair piece and work my way down the hair. I hold the wand for about 5 seconds over each section. Lastly, I add drybar - Triple Sec 3-in-1 Finishing Spray Blanc Scent for some extra texture and volume. Have you tried a 3-barrel curling wand yet? I would love to try a wand with larger barrels.

My Go-To Hairstyle = California Beach Waves
✨ABOUT MY HAIR I have bleached hair so it is pretty frizzy and dry. It is naturally wavy, but it looks like a nightmare if I don’t style it. I mentioned on my “How to Keep Bleached Hair Shiny and Healthy” post that my HG product is the IGK Good Behavior Anti- Frizz spray. I use this right after I get out of the shower and use this as a pre- styler before any heat. This really does kill the frizz away and makes my hair look manageable. I also find that this repairs my hair...even more sore than Olalex No. 3. This is as absolute staple to my hair. IGK - Good Behavior Spirulina Protein Anti-Frizz Smoothing Spray ✨NANO TITANIUM BABY BLISS PRO CURLING IRON - 1 INCH My hair stylist uses this on me whenever I get my roots touched up. This curling iron “has Sol Gel technology with titanium/ceramic barrel to transfer and deliver smoothing negative ions”. I am faithful to this curling iron because it does not add to the frizzy ness. My precious curling iron left my hair so dry and I had fly always. You can purchase this on Ulta or online. BaByliss PRO - Nano Titanium Spring Curling Iron ✨ DAVINES OI OIL So after I curl my hair, I let it cool for a bit and use this oil to add shine and remove fly always. I also use this oil along my fingers to soften my curls and make it look more “beachy”. This is also another staple to my hair care routine. davines - Oi Oil I believe having the right materials for your hair is crucial. I have damaged my hair in the past by using the wrong tools and I swear by these 3 hair tools. What is your go-to hair style? Francesca #CherieCreator

How I deal with my thick, wavy, and frizzy hair
When I was little my hair used to be straight up curly. Over the years as I grew up (and as my emo phase raged on) I heat styled it to death so depending on how long I go without heat styling I have anywhere from curls to waves. Right now with my hair being so short it’s just simple waves. With it being so short in the back as well it makes it a lot easier for me to straighten it then deal with the waves. The first video is my natural waves I woke up with. I washed my hair the night prior and used the Amika Flash Instant Mask in the shower as well as the Chi Silk Infusion after I got out. The Chi Silk Infusion is something I use on my hair when I wash it regardless of length or curl phase it’s going through (it’s usually a lot curlier when it’s longer). It’s a gel/oil consistency that smooths the hair and makes it feel silky soft. Whenever I heat style my hair I always use the IGK - Good Behavior Spirulina Protein Anti-Frizz Smoothing Spray . I usually part my hair into sections, spray all over, and comb through (which you’ve seen me do in past videos). This smells amazing, acts as a heat protectant, and smooths down any excess frizz (which I get a lot of). Then I take my Paul Mitchell flat iron and iron my hair. I do this in three different sections so everything is straightened properly and I don’t have any waves or bumps. Then I take the OLAPLEX - No. 7 Bonding Oil which I just started using recently. I was surprised with how lightweight this oil was and how it didn’t make my strands feel greasy or weighed down no matter how much I used. It feels silky smooth and I’ve noticed a lot less frizz when I use this product in the ends. This is how I deal with my hair on a normal basis. When it was longer I would usually throw it up in a bun with a head band but with it being so short I can no longer do that. Being shorter with all the smoothing products and heat styling it makes it a lot easier for me to manage throughout the day.

HOLY GRAIL DEFINING CURL CREAM‼️
cake - The Curl Friend Defining Curl Cream For reference, I have type 3A curls and thin hair strands. So, I was going to wait for a couple of more uses with this product, but I just HAD to make this post after using it for the first time because WOW I’M SUPER IMPRESSED! I headed out to buy my usual aussie - Miracle Curls with Coconut Oil Paraben Free Detangling Milk Treatment , but they ran out of stock, and that’s when I stumbled upon this cake - The Curl Friend Defining Curl Cream . After long due diligence, I decided to buy it because it’s vegan (no harsh chemicals, parabens and/or sulfates) and it also won an allure’s best of beauty award in 2019. The packaging is beautiful, and, when I opened it after washing my hair, I couldn’t help but notice the lovely and amazing smell that was coming out of this. It’s definitely sweet, but not overwhelming at all. Once I tried it, I noticed that the cream felt so smooth, silky, & lightweight (great for thin hair strands). It has avocado oil, soybean oil, and shea butter in it! It seems like this is definitely the perfect combination (for now) for my hair. I’ve shied away from butter mostly because it can be too heavy for my thin strands, but I guess that having it in smaller quantities works great. My hair is so SHINY, DEFINED, and VOLUMINOUS, and smells like CAKE. I mean, look at it! I can definitely say that this is my NUMBER 1 defining cream. HIGHLY RECOMMEND, please let me know how it feels if you try it. I am definitely going to try more cake products in the near future after finding this holy grail.

My Secret Weapon!
Lots of my clients only use Bobby pins to hold their style because they’re unsure how to use a hair pin. Since hair pins are straight, often people are afraid that they will fall right out of their hair. If this is a concern, all you have to do is bend one leg and it will catch the hair and stay in place! Give hair pins a try- they are awesome for adding texture or just for a little bit of extra hold!

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
