hello everyone! today i am showing you some looks and giving you some tips on how to style and work with your straight hair! these hairstyles may work for curly hair, but the probably are easier to do with straight hair. so, i have extremely straight, fine, and thick hair. it does not hold curls whatsoever, and i dont like using heat on my hair. not to mention i have so much hair that it takes me three hours to curl my whole head! because of this, i opt for leaving my hair straight, but still keeping it stylish. straight doesnt have to mean boring! first of all, i care for my hair using various shampoos. i shower every other day, and have to brush my hair every few hours or its a rats nest. my hair is also very dry, and i found that the only conditioner that really works for it is GARNIER - Whole Blends Smoothing Conditioner With Coconut Oil & Cocoa Butter Extracts
its literally like $4 at walgreens and works great! other that that, the only other product i use in my hair is ARGAN MAGIC - 10 in 1 Treatment Leave in Spray
, which provides moisture and helps with tangles. its good to use a hair mist to help with any frizz or dryness! ive had a tough time finding hairstyles that suit me, so here are some of my favorites! dutch braids dutch braids are a classic! they keep hair from getting tangled and can be very casual or dressed up! they also can curl your hair overnight 🌙 its a little tricky to learn how to do, and if you cant do them i suggest you watch my french braid dupe tutorial here on cherie! the difference between french and dutch braids is that you braid over and in the middle for a french braid, but for a dutch braid you braid under and to the middle. its a little tricky to explain! if you cant do these, you can also just do two normal braids! half up half down half up half down works for everyone, but it looks very sleek with straight hair! it adds volume if you have thin hair as well. in this photo, i did a high pony on the top of my head with a scruncie. the scruncie adds style and class✨ other things you can do are half up half down bun, or a braid, or anything you can come up with! “covering” the band an easy way to add style to a straight head of hair is by putting your hair up in one or two ponytails, then using a smaller strand of hair to wrap around where you placed the band/scrunchie. this “hides” the band. you can hold it in place with a bobby pin. this is also very classy (if not as messy as mine) and can also be done with braids! so, lemme know what you think! how do you care for your straight hair? dont forget to follow and cheer❤️❤️

how to style and manage thick hair!
hello everyone! today i am going to help give some tips and pointers on how to style and manage thick and/or long hair! if you cant tell, i have extremely thick, long, and fine hair. this is typical of scandinavians, as i am mostly scandinavian and get this hair type from my father. so, if you’re scandinavian as well, you also want probably struggle with your hair. my hair actually used to be much longer, but i cut it because im moving away soon and wont have access to my affordable hair stylist (my best friends mom)😂 the problem with thick, fine hair is that its very hair so curl and style because it doesnt want to stay put, and it doesnt hold curls very long. not to mention, curling my entire head of hair takes me about three hours😭 also, heats bad for your hair anyways, so none of these hairstyles involve heat! instead, they involve braids! now, any of variation of these styles can be done without braids. but i find braids to be a simple yet elegant way to manage hair like mine. i get a LOT of tangles very quickly, so braids help prevent tingles. another thing i use for thick hair is ARGAN MAGIC - 10 in 1 Treatment Leave in Spray this is a hair mist that de-frizzes my hair, and helps to smooth it out. its a good idea to always wet down your hair with hair mist or water, as it helps you be able to seperate and work with your hair. now lets get into the styles! style one: hair pulled back from face this style is really simple and can be done with braids or just plain hair. it involves pulling a front chunk of hair from each side away from the face and tying it together in the back. this helps get hair away from your face that may cause sweat or acne, and it can help to make your hair look more tame. style two: half up half down there are many ways to style to top section of your hair! in this photo, i simply put the top of hair in a ponytail, braided it, then tied it at the end. some girls like to do a bun on top, others do a plain pony. you can also french or dutch braid just the top part of your hair and leave the rest down if you like. this can help get your hair out of your face! style three: one sided dutch braid this hair style is a little more difficult. basically, i started a dutch braid on the left side of my head, and incorporated all of my hair into it. youre left with a nice side braid! i cant braid down the middle of my head, so this is a better option. also, double dutch or french braids look great for thick hair, as they look really big and stylish. definitely wet your hair for this one! so, how do you style your thick hair? do you have any other tips? dont forget to cheer and follow if you enjoyed ❤️

This is Why You should Apply Cocoa Butter
Cocoa butter is a natural fats that has a list number of benefits including reducing the appearance of stretch marks as well as helping relieve congestions. More on that, it has lupoel cinnamate, a form of of anti-inflavmationary qualities to prevent from tumor growth. Studies have been shown that Cocoa butter is rich in fatty acids, plant sterols and a laundry list of vitamins. It has been used in so many skincare products like body lotions, body oils, that helps to improve skin health; and lip balms. Unlike petroleum-based lip balms that clogs the lips, cocoa butter can be absorbed by the skin and acting like a moisturizer. PALMER'S - Cocoa Butter Formula Body Lotion Actually this is the body lotion from my 6 month pregnant sister. She has been an ingredients freak after pregnancy and cocoa butter is one of the holly grail ingredient that I first heard from her. She started using it 2 months before and she said it feels great on the skin. Since cocoa butter has Vitamin E and other fatty acids benefit of reducing appearance of scars on skin, it is applied in many natural pregnancy products for postpartum recovery. PALMER'S - Cocoa Butter Formula Oil With Vitamin E This body lotion and body oil from Palmer’s are the star products that contains cocoa butter as main ingredients. It is inexpensive and does well as others have mentioned on preventing stretch marks. Works very well at soothing dryness almost immediately. Excellent overall. GARNIER - Whole Blends Coconut Oil & Cocoa Butter Extracts Smoothing Shampoo GARNIER - Whole Blends Smoothing Conditioner With Coconut Oil & Cocoa Butter Extracts Last but not least, cocoa butter is also commonly used in conditioners and shampoos for hair aids in reducing hair loses. It has the effect of preventing onset of male pattern baldness. This set from Garnier is recommended by my classmates in schools who studies engineering and suffered from terrible hair loss. Surprisingly it does reduces the loss of hair in a certain level. Since it also works well for me after 2 weeks of using it. Supper recommended!
