All-Natural Drugstore 💇🏻‍♀️Brand You Must Know
All-Natural Drugstore 💇🏻‍♀️Brand You Must Know
Shea Moisture Lets started by introducing my favorite drugstore Brand Shea Moisture. This is the product of my transitioning to all-natural hair products. This a very popular brand. I’ve seen so many reviews on each lines and finally decided to try myself. I am impressed by this line, Shea Moisture uses certified organic ingredients with no sulfates, no Parabens, no Phthalates, no Paraffin, No mineral oil and no Petrolatum. Shea Moisture got tons of lines targeting each hair type. The 2 lines I want to talk about today s #1. Manuka Honey and Mafura oil. SheaMoisture - Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Shampoo SheaMoisture - Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Conditioner This line is specifically made for intensive hydration and replenish your hair. It claims to solve the objective to be super moisturizing hair especially for type 4 hair which is super hard to keep moisture in. It also helps to fight frizz and reduce breakage. Based on my feeling, it helps to strengthen and smoothes my hair since it contains all these nourishing ingredients like shea butter, Manuka honey and Matura oil. The product itself feels very creamy on the hands #2 Another my favorite line from Shea Moisture is this Manuka Honey & Yogurt which is made for hydrate and repair damaged hair. I’ve seen a lot of YouTube trying it. it is designed for type hair 3 and 2. Basically this line gives a super packed protein treatment to your hair to moisturize and nourish dry hair. It works best for curly hair. It holds the curls and gives it a lot more definition. SheaMoisture - Manuka Honey & Yogurt Hydrate + Repair Conditioner SheaMoisture - Manuka Honey & Yogurt Hydrate + Repair Multi-Action Leave-In For me this serie is a little heavy and I normally do not use it too often. But I really like the consistency and textures. I used it when I hair was terribly damaged and nothing worked to now it is soft and shine. My roommate has curly hair and she LOVES LOVES it. This stuff is thick. It melt fast into the hair, I use their conditioner more of a hair mask. Although its thick, it doesn’t feel drying or sticky. When I rinse it off, omg every time I was surprised by how soft, nourishing and moisturizing my hair is becoming.

Oh my hair...
Oh my hair...
My hair was a hot mess before. One of the reasons i noticed is not using good hair products. I just grab what is on sale in walmart. Common chemicals used in regular shampoos include sodium lauryl sulfate, ammonium lauryl sulfate, and others, which are harmful for your scalp and hair follicles. Chemicals including sodium lauryl sulfate, which are commonly found in commercial shampoos, lead to dry and damaged hair. If you accidentally got the foam into the eyes, you all have that experience and you know how those chemicals burns your eyes. Then I came to notice these products using only natural ingredients. Using all natural ingredient in hair treatment helps in preventing problems such as dry scalp detox, dandruff and problems such as excessive hair loss. This is also why organic products are so popular these days. Another thing to notice is that  ingredients in this shampoos such as aloe vera and coconut oil stimulate healthy hair growth by nourishing cells and follicles. MIXED CHICKS - Deep Conditioner This is one of my recent favorite organic hair mask contains only natural and organic ingredients, and don’t contain synthetic chemicals that are harmful for your hair. It is called deep conditioner, the texture is very thick and I just use it as a hair mask. The anti-oxidant properties of natural oils in this mask formulated with organic and natural ingredients contributes in reserving hair damage and nourishes your scalp. It is also free of all animal ingredients and animal derivatives, which makes this brand super cool. Another thing I used after shower is this leave in conditioner. JOHN FRIEDA - John Frieda Daily Nourishment Leave-in Conditioner This leave-in conditioner works for every hair types including straight, wavy and curly. I like to use it on my damp hair before blow dry, it does everything for you: detangles, protects, and conditions dry, coarse, or brittle hair. It makes my hair soft and tame my flyaways.

Vegan & Organic 🌱 New Hair Products
I do have very fine hair. Since hair and products are significant components of our daily routine. Because of that, I do find a lot of products that are very conditioning or very oily weight my hair down very easily. After trying a bunch of products high end to drugstore, commercial ones to organic, I do find these all-natural or vegan products works best for me personally. I also did a bit research on that, and hopefully these information is helpful for you as well. Now lets get deep into it! Organic and vegan haircare products are a growing trend among consumers that want to use only natural ingredients for their hair care routine. Since I do my hair all the time, blow-drying and styling, I am looking into hair treatment that has less harmful chemicals. Now its not only limit to shampoo and conditioning products, I am also dig into hair styling products that are vegan and organic. Here is what I found in Shoppers Drug Mart. Inebrya - Black Pepper Iron Shampoo The anti-oxidant properties of natural oils in vegan shampoos reverses hair damage. It has a really nice scent and it really does the job. I would really recommend checking out your local drug mart or superstore for this series if you have not already find your favourite hair styling products. They are really awesome option. Inebrya - Black Pepper Iron Shampoo It kind of protect my thin hair from heating damage and thickens it too. If you are looking at something lightly conditioning for fine or thin hair, I recommend you try this product. It works incredibly. To use it I just put my hair up in my microfiber towel, once I got most of the moisture out, I just apply this on the ends and use a wide-tooth brush to comb it through. Somethings I prefer to use my finger to run through. The texture is very light and when you actually apply it, it is not sticky at all and leaves your hands and hair with a soft touch. It absorbs by the hair so fast, and feels more of a moisturizer. After it is dry, my hair feel so silky soft. And it also adds a little bit of volume.

Rapunzel?Detangle!
Rapunzel?Detangle!
Having long silky Rapunzel hair is so Disney. Fact is the longer the hair is the more headache there will be. Maintaining long hair is not as easy as it looks, problems such as knotted or poorly divided hair, and withered yellow and dull hair at the ends, which annoys girls who have long hair. If you struggle with extra tangled hair, you might want to just give up on brushing all together. There are a few ways to gradually get rid of knots and tangles and have the soft silky hair back. First thing first, use a good detangling product. You need a product that will keep your hair silky after shower, something stays in even when the hair is dry. Always detangle curly hair while it's wet, never dry. I normally apply this on my damp hair, Coat hair with this leave-in conditioner MIXED CHICKS - Leave-In Conditioner This is an all-natural leave-in conditioner I found in Walmart. This is a vegan product with great hydrating ingredients like and vitamins A, C, and E. These formula with plenty of slip would help the brushing process easier without pulling or damaging your hair. Secondly, you need a nice brush that works through the knots and tangles gently without breaking. I found this item randomly as I was shopping for a conditioner in Shoppers Drug Mart, and it caught my attention for its unique shape. TYME - Detangler Hair Brush I have long thin and fine hair and it usually tangles after a shower. After moving to Toronto, my hair started knotting up like crazy. Then I found this as my favorite detangling brush so far. It does a great job at detangling my long hair. One thing I really like is the bristles are really easy to bend and quite long enough to reach the root of my hair. Not only for myself, this brush works great on my 8 year old sister long hair because it gently takes apart the knots. The bristles are pointy but are comfortable on your scalp. One thing you should be careful when detangling your hair is that always go bottoms up. As the ends of your hair split, all of those little pieces intertwine with each other and can cause extra tangles.

Easy Eye Makeup Under 🤓
Easy Eye Makeup Under 🤓
Glasses girls should all face the same problem, that is, wearing makeup under glasses. A glasses blocks everything. Sometimes if you are tired of contact lens, but still want to wear makeup, what should you do? I feel like sometimes when I am wearing glasses, it is really covering my eye makeup and will really make their eyes small. The most difficult thing when wearing glasses is the eye shadow, because no matter how heavy the eye shadow is, wearing the glasses will immediately block your eye makeup and makes it seamless. And you do not want to take off the glasses looking like a rock star with big smoky eyes. So for girls who wear glasses, like me, here are some tricks for eye makeup to increase the focus of eye makeup by exaggerate the eyes. There are a few tips that we can use when doing makeup under glasses. 1. Define your eyeliner according to the frame of your glasses. (don't stretch your eyeliner too long at this time, at least not beyond the edge of the lens when you look at yourself in the mirror from the front) 2. Another point is that the thicker the frame of the glasses, the thicker eyeliner should be match with each other; on the other way, the thinner the frame of the glasses, the thinner eyeliner should follow. 3. Do not skip mascara. Curl your lashes in L shape to avoid touching the lens. 4. Avoid to much shimmery eye shadow, go with matte ones. 5. Use glitters in the center of your eyelids to pop up your eye look. Overall, to have a good and natural makeup with glasses, we have to make adjustments in the usual makeup according to the characteristics of the frame glasses. One of the principles that must be focuses is to make the makeup feel more attractive especially on eye makeup after wearing glasses.

Thin Hair Styles👩🏻‍🦳👩🏻‍🦰👱🏻‍♀️
The basis of a perfect hair style is the volume of hair, for people with less hair like me, the main focus is to create volume first before you go with any hair style. Most of the times you may want to keep really long hair for options of hairstyles or cut your hair into layers. It's not just the shape of your face or your personal style that determines whether a hairstyle is ideal or not. Because for thin hair girls, no matter what you do to on the top of your head, it won't be long before it's flat again. In fact, as long as you spend a little time styling, there are multiple ways to make thin hair look fuller and bigger. These are four ways of stying thin hair. And there are some tips and take aways when you are styling your hair. First of all, long hair is not easy to create volume, especially if it's blond and straight. And if you always have long straight hair down with no styles, particularly close to the scalp, would make you look like you have less hair. So when it comes to the choice of hair style, try to have medium or shoulder hair which looks fuller even you are doing nothing with it. The overall fluffy hairstyle is a great option for thin hair girls, not only can it help to cover the scalp, but also create extra volume with falling hair. Two-strand braids are more dynamic and lively than three-strand braids. Even if the whole head is not rolled up, it can create a dimensional twisted ponytail. Add a twist to your braid where you want to create a more dimensional hairstyle, and you'll create a fluffy, airy look.

Easy Beachy Wave Tip🏖
Easy Beachy Wave Tip🏖
Today I want to share a few tips on how to make sexy bohemia wavy hair withs salon finish.parting your hair is something you do everyday. To start curling, begin with clean towel -dried hair. Apply a coin size of heat protection on the hair. Remember we discussed how important heat protection is. AVOID SCALP! It’s not just the chemicals that is not safe to touch the scalp. We are only applying on areas to prevent from heat damage. (Im assuming you won’t burn your scalp with iron hah) Then just use fingers to run product from root to end. You can use comb to apply it more evenly. Normally I like to start up with 180℃, I try not to go to maximum temperature to burn my hair. Then next step is to pull the hair half way up. Section is just gonna make your curling easier and a better finish look. Tip #1. Start with small portions. You want the hair get evenly heated and you don’t want to spend the whole day doing your hair. Normally a good practice is try to get the bottom half of the hair in maximum 8 portions Tip#2 Start off with the root with the iron, then twist it around the iron and slide it down (curl up) and works the way till the end slowly and smoothly. In this way you will get entire strand from the iron. remember to do it all the way to the end. No hooks girls. We want springy curls. Tip# 3 Let the curl set on your iron no more than 15 seconds and let it cool down. And don’t forget the root! Tip#4 Wait till you finish the whole curling process, pray with hair spray, and brush it out in the end. It might look too curly at the moment but no worries it will go back through out the day (just like when you curl your eyelashes) the final step is to keep the curl a little big longer and when you brush it out together, it kind of put everything together for a more natural finish.Schwarzkopf - Osis+ Freeze Pump Spray 200ml Curling iron is hard to use at first. Its not necessary to buy an expensive iron. You can even use flat iron if you already have one. It’s more about practice. Remind me to share some tips to create curls with flat iron. Eventually you will figure your own way of creating a beautiful waves in your individual style and you will learn how to curve your hair correctly and effective. Good Luck!

Bleached no more frizz🧝🏻‍♀️
Bleached no more frizz🧝🏻‍♀️
I only bleached my hair once (years ago at the salon) and my hair went to crap for the following 3 months before I dye it darker. And it took years to recover. This picture taken is actually my roommate’s hair. And she did a fantastic job at maintaining her bleaching hair in that healthy glory look, so I’m stealing her secret treatment with you girls.This is not an add and I also tried this product myself and absolutely love it. This No3 Hair Protector from Olaplex is the secrete treatment.OLAPLEX - No. 3 Hair Perfector This is an expensive product you guys. It is $28 USD for this small bottle. Only 100 ml. As far as application goes, you can choose to dump in your hair like a little bit or apply directly on dry hair. And in fact you kind of need more product to saturate your hair. And if you have long hair like my roommate, it will probably take one quarter of the bottle. And regarding the leave on time for this product, it is recommended at least 10 min. The best result after a few times of trying is for at least a couple of hours. You can put it up in a nice bun and continue about your day doing something work. And according to the reviews, many said its the longer the better and some may leave over night and have amazing result. I don’t think it’s necessary and it is to time consuming. After that you can just rinse, shampoo, condition your hair as usual. And towel drying your hair after this treatment and blow dry to 80%. It will give your the instant silky texture. And you would notice that you don’t even need straight iron to make it straight or serum. You can do this on a bi-weekly basis. And meanwhile there is less breakage because of the fact it is actually getting healthier. At the same time, less hair losses. This is a really great product and I strongly strongly recommend you girls give it a try!
