I do this by myself at home.As I have fine and fragile hair, colorings, highlights and babylights are extremely damaging to my hair which is naturally dark brown, so I must at all times be very careful with the products that I use for this I often try new products, shampoo masks condotionner oils creams 😱 ... in short with my hair I always need a magic wand 😅MOROCCANOIL - Care Meets Color Rose Gold MARC ANTHONY TRUE PROFESSIONAL - Damage Repair Mask
🙅🏻♀️Common Straightening Mistakes
Flat iron hair has been a routine for most girls. As a user for 5 + years, I want to share some of my experiences. There are some common mistakes I noticed many girls make including myself when straightening the hair. Hopefully you make none of these. I'm just gonna go and share my experiences and a few things I saw many girls did. Mistake # 1 Straighten wet hair This is the number 1 mistake in straightening. Straightening wet hair has to be damaging. It is not safe and can damage the hair dramatically. Wet hair applies heat directly to your hair and can quickly heat to scorching temperatures. By straightening wet hair, the wet hair will actually maximize the heat to dangerous levels. water would turn into vapor under high temperature and boil and even breaking your hair. So be sure to always blow-dry your hair prior to straightening. Mistake #2 Crancking up the heat Another common mistake many girls make is not using heat setting on the flat iron. I was that girl that used the highest heat setting on my hair and just went over multiple times over the same hair strands. It is not practical girl. I thought I was saving myself time and making things efficient. However, I didn’t noticed that my hair were burnt and would smell. There is no specific temperature setting. It mostly based on your hair type and the iron itself. I have thin hair but i have a lot. Normally I never go above 200℃ or 350℉. Again that also depends on the iron, if I can I would normally go lower. Mistake #3 Straightening all at once. A good practice here is to separate hair into sections - skinny up sections Reasons are simple - smaller sections make it faster. I notice many beginners including myself making section way too big, the heat from the plates of the flat iron is not even gonna get into the middle of the hair because the section is too wide. Sectioning is essentialif you are fighting with frizz or curls, you have to section your hair to get the best result. If you have thick hair or need to fight with curls, dividing your hair into more sections. I know it sounds like time consuming and too much extra work. Trust me, you are better off taking the time to do a really good thorough. You dont want to get a halfway job by saving a few minutes.
How to Survive Second Day Hair
Second day hair can sometimes feel and look the worst – but it doesn’t need to be if you manage it properly. It’s difficult making sure your hair washing days line up with your gym schedule or days you actually might have to look presentable. All you need is a good trusty dry shampoo and some hair styling tips to get away with it (I won’t tell if you don’t!).Make sure to brush out your hair! It sounds obvious but sometimes I skip this step in the mornings (and I bet some of you reading do too!). One of my favourite brushes is this wide toothed wooden comb I bought from Amazon. It’s super gentle on the hair and can detangle any knots perfectly without any tugging. I switched to a wooden comb because I noticed my hair was getting extremely static a few months ago from the previous brush I had been using which had plastic bristles. I haven’t looked back since! A good dry shampoo goes a long way. One of my favourites is this cherry dry shampoo by Batiste. It’s super easy to work into the hair, great for building volume and leaves the hair smelling fruity and fresh. It great for absorbing any grease and gives my hair that boost that it needs, leaving it feeling clean all day. Curl your hair – I’m not sure about you but I’ve realised that curls work best on second day hair (and look the best too). They just hold so much better and for longer (even without hair spray). It’s great for adding some volume back into your hair that you might have lost after sleeping on it throughout the night. Make sure to use a heat protective spray before curling with a wider barrel for looser curls. Follow up with a volumising hair spray to hold your curls in and give it an extra lift.
Party hairstyles: beachy waves 🌊🌞
I haven’t been to a party since having short hair (thanks rona), but this is how I would style my hair if I were to go to one! I start with air dryed hair (because I am LAZY), but I think blow drying your hair beforehand would give you beautiful volume with this style! I applied sexyhair - Healthy Tri-Wheat Leave In Conditioner on wet hair and let it air dry. Then I sectioned my hair with a clip and applied AVEDA - Smooth Infusion Style-Prep Smoother heat protectant to the first layer. I am using a 1 inch curling iron. I skip using the clip and just wrap my hair around the barrel! I have had this curling iron forever, and will probably invest in a nicer one soon but for now this one gets the job done! Then I just take small sections of hair and wrap them around the curling iron! I like to leave out the last 0.5-1 inch to give me a more natural curl. I also hold the curl in my hand and let it cool to help prolong the curl! After letting down and curling the rest of my hair, I let my whole head set for 10-15 minutes. I don’t like to use hair spray because I feel like it makes my hair crunchy and frizzy, so at this point I am done applying products! After 10-15 minutes I tip my head upside down and shake out the curls at my roots with my fingers. I love a hairstyle with a lot of volume for a night out, so this is going to be my go-to hairstyle whenever we are allowed out of the house again :)

Get Your Filthy Hairbrush Looking Like New In Under A Minute!
Have you ever cleaned your hairbrush? Honestly, you know how dirty it gets after using it for a while. You are more likely to get a shiny hair with a clean hairbrush than one clogged with hair strands and product residue. And cleaning your hairbrush is not as hard as you might think! Today, I will show you how to clean a hairbrush in 3-Easy steps. Step 1: Dig Out the Hair! The first and the most important thing is to take those hair out. You can use some tools to help you, like a stick or scissors. It's easy, right? Step 2: Wash out the Dirt! For different types of hairbrush, follow different procedures: Wooden brushes: Dip and shake. Don't submerge the wooden brush. Natural bristle brushes: Soaking it for a few minutes. If it has a wooden base and handle, clean it as how you clean a wooden brush. Plastic or metal/plastic brushes: Drop them in the soapy water and soak for 3 minutes. Brushes with fabric/soft padding at the base: Dip them in the soapy water without submerging the padding, and shake. After soaping, rinse the brush under warm water. If the brush looks good, go ahead and dry it. If you’re not comfortable with the results, use a toothbrush to clean it, and rinse again. Step 3: Dry It! Wooden brushes: Air-dry it at a place that has great airflow. Natural bristle brushes: Similar to wooden brushes. Hanging is best. Plastic or plastic/metal brushes: Place it face down on a clean and dry towel and air-dry it. Brushes with fabric/soft padding at the base: Same as above. Put it on a towel and air-dry it. I used AVEDA - Wooden Paddle Brushas an example, and you can see how clean it gets! I hope you find it helpful. You don't have to clean your hairbrush that often. I personally do it every month. I find it sufficient enough. If you want to learn more about how to clean hairbrushes, let me know.

Flat iron Do’s & Dont’s
"No heat protection " This is a common mistake that most people make when blow drying their hair. You can choose to apply a serum or a cream heat protector before drying on your damp hair or use an aerosol spray that you can spray on each section before you heat it with a flat iron or curl it. KÉRASTASE - Nutritive Nectar Thermique Conditioner This is my favorite heat protector cream this year. Kerastase has the best hair products for repair 👍 Since blow dryers have heat, and damp hair is more fragile than dry hair. If your hair is really fragile or breaking, it's the heat that brings the damage. Using heat protection will keep your hair in the best condition possible given the fact that you are using heat tools. This is also when most damage comes from. “Do not go up & down multiple times” When heating the hair with flat iron, try not go up and down. Correct way is to slowly moving from the scalp to the root. It makes all the follicles point the same direction. This also create the sleek finish and add extra shine if you do it correctly. Dos Comb your hair One thing you should notice is that the iron seals whatever goes into the hair. By this, it means that, if there are a lot of crinkles in a section of your hair and you go straight to straightening. What you did is to seal the whole section including all the crinkles into the hair. It is always recommended to avoid using a comb first. Section your hair I like to iron with small sections about 1 inch wide. Sectioning shift to diagonal section, keep portions nice and small, working on diagonal, easy to get the texture we want. give a light mist, once it gets dry, we can go ahead and apply the heat. One thing to notice here is that when we work on the diagonal, after the hair falls, it still has a little bit movement to it. So it doesnt get flat. What we did is that we keep the iron on the diagonal and this would leave with a much nicer result.

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!!💁🏼♀️🤍
