Loose waves hack
I have thin, naturally straight hair, and normally I just pass through my hair with a straightener just to straighten the kinks and baby hairs, but sometimes I like to switch up my daily hairstyle and give my hair a little body. I’m not that great at curling my own hair, and it takes a pong time, and sometimes I have the luxury of spending thirty minutes on my hair. I found this hair hack on pinterest and tried it a few times when I want to change it up- straightening braids 🤯 The end result is cute beachy loose waves and I accomplish a little change in my hair look ☺️ Notable products here are the UV/heat protectinf spray by Bumble&Bumble, which is a must before blow drying hair or straightening. This keeps my hair from drying and protects the ends longer so I dont get split ends for a while. The Dyson hair dryer is literally amazing- expensive, but you wont understand the worth until you try it. Its *chefs kiss* amazing. My hair straightener is Croc, really good straightener, doesnt pull out your hairs and gives you smooth, straight hair SO quickly. Finally, id you have greys like I do, Loreal magic root touch up is a lifesaver 🙌🏼

MY 2020 TOP 5 ✨
I love this prompt from @cherieand was excited to start thinking about some of my favourites from 2020. It was a nice chance to really reflect on the past year, and celebrate my personal self care journey. So here are my favourites! Product - After lots of consideration I decided to choose one of my favourite products for each category of: face, lips and hair! So many great products this year it’s so hard to choose, but I would say for face: BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream was my all time favourite discovery, so effective for my specific concerns (sun damage/milia)! The SUMMER FRIDAYS - Lip Butter Balm was my favourite lip product - I was addicted to the smell + really kept my lips hydrated. Plus for the price, you know I wasn’t gunna misplace this bad boy. And lastly, I would almost consider it a full on addiction how much I loved the OLAPLEX - No. 7 Bonding Oil , seriously this stuff changed my life! Trend - Sustainable packaging, and gorgeous reusable jars were one of my favourite trends. I love this shift towards mindfulness, especially because I often feel like it’s a domino effect where it can start with mindfulness to the environment, than mindfulness of people and surroundings and I believe this is a very important/healthy shift for consumers. My best look - Dark lips, always. Favourite Creators - I couldn’t possibly choose just one, there are so many creators here that are amazing, unique, lovely, smart, creative and genuine - I’m so grateful for this platform! But a few accounts I think you should definitely check out - @heynoonoofor some of the most beautiful makeup looks I’ve ever seen, just absolute works of art! @D.Bennettthis gorgeous human has an amazing page. All encompassing, wonderfully informative and super relatable. @annkrishaAnn’s page is awesome, from Halloween looks to gift guides ... she’s ON it. Not to mention her results posts are super helpful and informative. @Mallory- I love her content, her posts are very relatable and she is just genuinely such a good person! Something I learned - SPF if so important! APPLY - than REAPPLY even in the winter. I really like THANK YOU FARMER - Sun Project Water Sun Cream Hope you enjoyed my top 5 ✨💛

Good hair day!
FABLE&MANE - HoliRoots Pre-wash Hair Treatment Oil used this overnight to help my scalp and thirsty ends. Love this! Smells good unlike some Ayurvedic hair oils. Plus when I rinsed it out the next morning my hair felt soft and was easier to detangle. ￼FABLE&MANE - HoliRoots Cleansing Shampoo I have been searching for a good shampoo and conditioner for awhile. I have even tried some of those online quizzes where they make a custom shampoo and conditioner. But none of them have really passed the test until I tried this shampoo. It has enough moisture and slip to easily detangle my fine wavy hair but it’s not too heavy either. ￼FABLE&MANE - HoliRoots Nourishing Conditioner Love this conditioner! Holy Grail product! My hair is really damaged when I bleached it to try to go purple. 😓 I have really dry ends and no conditioners I have tried have had the moisture and slip I was looking for. Until this one! Not only can I detangling my hair in the shower a lot easier my hair detangler even after I rinsed it out and it’s almost dry. I did mix it with THE inkey LIST - Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Hair Treatment for the first time and I like it even more. ￼FABLE&MANE - HoliRoots Repairing Hair Mask Used it after the conditioner to moisturize my dry, damaged hair. There’s nothing I don’t love about this product. Love the smell love how it feels on my hair and love how my hair feels after. Rinsed out and had mega wavy definition ￼after squishing some of the THE inkey LIST - Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Hair Treatment in my hair I went in with the THE inkey LIST - Vitamin C Brightening Hair Treatment to protect and help with my damaged hair. Both of these products helped so I had no frizz and was getting a lot of wave definition so I decided not to go in with any gel. ￼Put it up in an AQUIS - Lisse Luxe Desert Rose Hair Wrap for twenty minutes ￼dyson - Supersonic Hair Dryer defuse my hair and ended up with really good looking waves. At least for me because this is the first time in four months I have like my hair enough to not to braid it to help give it more wave.
✨DAMAGE FREE BLOWOUT W ONE PRODUCT✨
Do you always blow out your curly or wavy hair? I do 🙋🏼♀️. I like to describe my hair as wavy. Not cute wavy but frizzy, cotton ball-texture wavy. Here is my quick fire way to blow dry your hair smooth and get it to last using ONLY ONE PRODUCT! Woo hoo! ✨THE PRODUCT✨ Aveda’s Smooth Infusion glossing straightener! You can get away with using only this because it helps straighten the hair, adds shine and protects the hair from heat damage/humidity using organic aloe, maize and guar bean. The consistency is somewhere between a gel and cream. It has an earthy, natural signature Aveda scent (think citrusy, floral) and retails for $26. ✨HOW I USE IT✨ I start with towel dried hair and put a *dime* size amount of the glossing straightener in my hand and work through my mids and ends. Make sure to evenly disperse this product throughout hair with your fingers, it is a little bit thicker. Also a little bit goes a long way, you can use too much so be careful and stick to the dime size! Rough dry your hair using fingers until hair is 60-70% dry making sure the airflow from your blow dryer is going down the hair shaft. No need for a brush yet! Section your hair using duck bill clips into 3 sections. Crown area, middle, and nape area. Use medium size round brush to smooth out hair section by section. Make sure you have tension while using the round brush, the tension will be what really helps to smooth out the hair. Make sure hair is 100% dry in each section before moving to the next Use a flat iron to touch anything up and you are done!
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.

My go to hair tutorial- beachy waves look
My absolute favorite go - to beachy waves look for the perfect night out.. I have think and naturally straight-ish hair it can be a little wavy and straight ( I know strange right ? Haha ) My hair tutorial on how I do my hair when I go out or have a date night with my husband! I love beach waves it’s such a natural and classy look and it’s so fun to do and I love the volume it adds to my hair.. I love using my hair care products before I put heat on my hair I like to use TRESemmé - Keratin Smooth Keratin Infusing Smoothing Serum because it helps with frizzy hair and my hair can get pretty frizzy after drying and my baby hairs love to stick up so it’s great for the perfect slick to pull down my hair ..... it’s not a heat protectant oil it’s more for a sleek shine and helps with frizz and fly ways it’s great for a flawless and sleek finish to your hair, great for styling it has Marula oil and smells amazing ... you can apply it to wet or dry hair of your choice :) but for heat protectant spay I love to use the TRESemmé - Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Leave In Spray helps to protect heat for damaging your hair and I used it while my hair is damp

Sleek+Straight; Best Styles for Oval Face Shape
My face shape has always been a cross between oval & round; I have found that one of the most flattering styles for my shape is sleek and straight. Here’s the steps I take to achieve shiny, sleek, healthy looking hair that frames my face and helps to slim down the roundness👇🏻 My hair is naturally straight and is fine in texture. While my natural colour is blonde, it is also colour-treated (bleached) throughout. 1️⃣ I started with day-old, air-dried hair; first I sprayed in the eva·nyc - Mane Magic 10-in-1 Primer to protect my strands from the heat of my flat iron and prime it for styling. This spray is a very fine mist and works great to prep the hair for heat styling (my only con is that it’s very strongly perfume scented). 2️⃣ Next I ran my eva·nyc - Spectrum Far-Infrared Styling Iron through my hair, concentrating on the hair around my face to make sure it was evenly sleek and not frizzy. Personally, I only flat iron my hair from just above my ears down because I find if I flat iron the roots it leaves my hair too flat and without any volume. 3️⃣ Last, I misted on some of my KEVIN.MURPHY - Shimmer Me Blonde which is a shine-enhancing spray made for blondes, with violet-hued reflects to tone out brassiness (they have one for brunettes/redheads too!). I love this stuff, it feels nourishing but light and makes my hair shiny without being greasy. Honestly, it’s a super simple look but I always feel a little bit glam when I go for sleek + straight locks - it feels so timeless. Hope you enjoyed!!💁🏼♀️🤍

Don’t Make These Mistakes When Straightening Your Hair
Even if you have frizzy, unruly hair as I do, you can still achieve sleek, shiny hair with a few great tools and products in your arsenal. Learn from my mistakes to ensure your next ‘do is perfect! I’m giving you some of the best tips and tricks I've learned through my own hair journey. My Hair Type I have very dry, curly/wavy hair. I love wearing it down and straight! If I keep it curly, I usually have quite a bit of frizz, especially during the summer. Mistakes I've Made Straightening hair before it’s completely dry. Don’t do it! It creates split ends and broken hair. Now, I make sure my hair is bone dry before I use any heat. Forgoing heat protectant. I used to think they were unnecessary, boy was I wrong! I have significantly less damage now that I started using one. Passing the iron over one section too many times. This creates more heat damage than necessary. Instead, I invested in a high-quality hair straightener that gets the job done in one pass. Tools & Products I Use To Fix My Mistakes: 1. Ghd ‘classic styler’ hair straightener - This tool is a little pricey ($200). I do love it though, it heats up in 30 seconds and I can straighten my hair in one pass. 2. Amika heat protectant - This is actually heat protecting serum, which is pretty cool. It’s $25 and protects and adds shine to my hair. Bonus, it smells awesome. 3. Oplalex No. 5 & 6 - I love Olaplex, I can’t say that enough. Numbers 5 & 6 are the hair cream ($28) and hair oil ($28). I mix the two together in my palms and rub in through my ends when I’m done straightening. (I also use their shampoo & conditioner and love them both!)

They Saved My Coarse Hair! 👍👏
Coarse hair seems to be a common problem among many people, yet, having smooth and luscious hair is desired by most. Nowadays, there are many products on the market that can help us treat coarse hair, and I’ll be introducing a hair essence and heat protectant that will achieve just that! My Hair Type: I have to admit that I brought this problem to myself. My hair used to be smooth and healthy, however, I was into dying my hair in various bright colors that involved many times of bleaching, which ultimately damaged my hair, almost beyond repair. For a while, my hair was coarse on the part that has been bleached and endless split ends followed. My hair became extremely weak and prone to breakage. On top of those problems, I have oily hair roots but dry ends. Product 1: Heat Protectant - Tresemme RP7 Pre-Styling Spray $3.59 / 300 ml This is such an affordable product that should be a staple item in everyone’s hair care collection. One cause for coarse hair could be too much heat on the hair. When we blow dry too closely to our hair or at a temperature that’s too high, or style our hair with a straightener or curler, our hair could be damaged and dry, thus, becoming coarse. This is where heat Protectant is important. I love the packaging because it is a spray-on product, which makes application very easy, you simply spray onto dry or wet hair before blow-drying or styling. The scent is very mild and makes the hair smell nice. The texture also feels lightweight and coats the hair nicely. I noticed that my hair became smooth and shiny right after application, and over months of usage, my hair felt stronger, and there are less split ends and less tangles. One thing I would note is to avoid applying onto the scalp because it can make the hair oily and flat. Product 2: Hair Essence - Pantene Ultimate 10 BB Creme for Hair $4.95 / 135 ml We’ve all heard of bb cream for the face, which is a product that is supposed to benefit the skin in multiple ways. In this case, this product is a bb cream for hair. It is a multi-tasking leave on treatment. It truly lives up to its name, because it really moisturized, detangled and defrizzed my hair. It can be applied onto dry or wet hair, at day or night. For me, I like to apply this before bedtime. I would dispense two pumps into my hair and apply it evenly on my hair, except for the scalp. I would notice a huge difference the next day, where my hair feels extremely smooth and silky, and all of the coarseness would be gone. The packaging is nice and convenient, the price is very affordable, and most of all, I love the scent. It smells like perfume for the hair. I absolutely adore this product and would highly recommend this to my friends and family. I have emptied at least three bottles of this, so I encourage you to give this a try too!
