Curly Hair Daily Routine
Finally I found a topic that many thin hair girl or curly hair girl might be interested in, that is how to treat my curly hair. I was straight hair for years. I’ve always wanted to go curly because of the volume and big hair that I was always dream of. I personally hesitated a long time before go curly just because of the concern of washing and taking care of curly hair. And here comes my personal hacks! Curly hair gives you the volume and easy to get a style. It is even easier to create a beautiful bun comparing with straight hair. My hair care routine is a little bit different when I went curly. No worries it is not gonna make it harder, it’s just some tips to be noticed. You know when to wash your curls when they start to get way down when they really tingly and a lot more dryer than regular hair. It is important to wash it less often than you would with regular hair. Tip #1. Condition hair first. I did the same way before getting my curls. But with curly it even more important to detangling with conditioner. I also put it on my root cus I do have tangles there. And I would put 2 coins amount all over my curls Tip #2. Be extra gentle when washing it. And let hair mask to stay longer (at least over 15 min) Tip #3. Use a cotton towel to soak your wet hair, DO NOT RUB. ! You don’t want to create extra frizz to your hair. We want the healthy and bouncy hair. Tip #4. Put treatment on damp hair.

Favorite hair products
I have bought and tried many hair care products but these are the products that i keep buying and still loving it. My hair condition: ￼sensitive dry scalp ￼hair fall and dry 1. KÉRASTASE - Bain Vital Dermo-Calm i’ve been using this for years (6-7 years) and still loving it. Its quite pricy for a shampoo but my hair loves it. I used to have dry itchy scalp with big dandruff. I tried other shampoo but always come back to this. 2. Christophe Robin - Purifying Scalp Scrub with Sea Salt i use this once every 2 weeks because i like the idea of scalp scrub. I’m not sure if it really works but I like my scalp is squicky clean after using this. Maybe this more suitable in summer :) 3. frank body - Non-Stop Hair Duo so I didn't buy the shampoo. Just the caffeinated hair mask. I think it's okay, smells good and it's affordable. For the price, it does the job. :) 4.OLAPLEX - Limited Edition No. 3 Hair Perfector wanted to hate this because it's expensive but I love it. My hair feels great after (I think the reason I bought frank body hair mask was so because I don't use this so often lol). 5. Sephora hair mask This is actually better than the frank body hair mask. My hair was so dry because I dyed my hair with a boxed hair color and this helped so much. 6. OLAPLEX - No. 7 Bonding Oil mixed this with the kerastase hair serum (no particular reason) I just like to have a moisturized hair ends. 7. The Ordinary - Multi-Peptide Serum for Hair Density this helps my hair fall so much. I use this once every 2 days on my scalp after washing my hair. For conditioner, I keep changing it. I don't think conditioner is such a big deal but I always look something cheap because I use a lot of conditioner.

Night hair care & natural daytime result!
My hair is thin and straight! I have to make sure to care for my hair every night and do my best to protect it! I use the OLAPLEX - No. 7 Bonding Oil ever night to add some moisture back in, protect it, and treat at the same time. It is expensive but very little is needed. I’ve been using for about 6 weeks and so far I like it a lot. I also braid my hair in a very loose braid or French braid every night and use my slip - Medium Slipsilk Scrunchies scrucnhies to make sure no damage is done. The only downfall to these is that they are expensive and they do stretch out quickly. I am on my second pack because I truly do love these and they make a difference. (No creasing) The next day result is beachy waves and a heartless, natural result. Protect and care for your hair ladies 💖
MY HAIR ROUTINE *chemically-treated & damaged*✨
Shampoo: OLAPLEX - No. 4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo This is the shampoo I use the most- it really helps to keep my hair looking and feeling healthy. It keeps my hair color from fading, strengthens each strand and is great at cleansing my hair without stripping it of its natural oils! Briogeo - Scalp Revival Charcoal + Coconut Oil Micro-exfoliating Scalp Scrub Shampoo This helps remove any product build up in my hair and definitely leaves my hair feeling super clean. I use this probably just once a month as it’s super clarifying and can dry out my hair. Fanola - No Yellow Shampoo I use this one once every few washes to maintain my hair color. It’s the most potent purple shampoo (that’s also super inexpensive!) I’ve ever used and one bottle lasts around 8 months for me. I lather it into my hair, tie up my hair in a bun so it doesn’t drip purple water all over the shower while I exfoliate, shave, etc. and after 10 mins rinse it out. Conditioner: Briogeo - Don't Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Hair Mask I use this hair mask in lieu of conditioner because I already take several days to wash my hair so why not use every hair wash opportunity to treat my hair too? This hair mask is super lush- it smells amazing and also leaves my hair super soft. Treatment: OLAPLEX - No. 3 Hair Perfector This is such a popular hair treatment for people who have damaged or chemically treated hair! I love this so much because I can truly feel and see a difference in my hair. I apply this like I would a hair mask to my hair before showering and I’ll leave it in for 15-20 minutes before following with my usual shampoo and conditioner. Oils: OLAPLEX - No. 7 Bonding Oil Nature Lab. - Perfect Shine Oil Mist Honestly both these hair oils are super similae in what they do for my hair. They keep my strands super soft and shiny withgout looking greasy. They help to protect hair from heat (so I apply it throughout my hair before blowdrying or using any type of hot tool) and also help to add shine and tame frizz after I’ve styled my hair.
Tips and Tricks for enhancing your waves!!
As a hair stylist I come across many clients who struggle to style their wavy hair! Over the years I have picked up many tips and tricks to help my clients... Wavy hair tends to sit in a ‘S’ pattern, it bends and coils which can sometimes make it unmanageable, it can also appear fragile and dry. However, wavy hair is BEAUTIFUL! If your one of the lucky people to have this hair type, enjoy it! Trick 1: Use the correct products: The key with wavy hair is to use the correct products for your hair type. There are numerous shampoos and conditioners out there that are designed for your hair type. One of my favourites is Loreal Curl Contour Shampoo & Conditioner, it is perfect for moisturising and enhancing your curls. L'ORÉAL - Serie Expert Curl Contour Shampoo L'ORÉAL - Serie Expert Curl Contour Masque Another little trick I picked up is apply a curl enhancer to lightly towel dried hair, this will add moisture and give your curls a beautiful definition. My favourite is Kérastase Aura Botanica Crème de Boucles, it has a beautiful fragrance and it hydrates while giving beautiful curl definition. KÉRASTASE - Creme de Boucles - Curl Defining Cream To finish the hair simply apply some oil onto the hair to tame any frizz and add that last little bit of moisture to the hair. I always use Moroccan oil on my clients as it gives the hair a smoothness and shine without leaving it looking oil. MOROCCANOIL - Moroccanoil Treatment Trick 2: Rinse your hair in cold water. Once you have shampooed and conditioned your hair rinse your hair in cold water for a few minutes, this will close the hair cuticle, and lock in all the moisture and ingredients from the shampoo and conditioner. Trick 3: Choose the right comb: The best comb for wavy hair is a wide tooth comb, this will avoid unnecessary pulling on the hair which may result in breakage. When combing always start at the ends and work towards the root area. Trick 4: Applying curl cream: When applying your curl product ensure that all the hair is covered. Take section sizes dependant on how large you want your waves (small sections – small waves and large sections – large waves). Tousle your hair around your finger, repeat this on all of your hair and allow to air dry. Have a good hair day!!

Powder ‘s charming! Rescue thin and soft hair
My hair is thin and soft，natural straight. I have posted dry shampoo in my past post. However, like many spray bottles, they can not be taken to the flight. So when I leave home, bringing the spray dry shampoo is not a correct choice. But…don’t worry! Lazy girl has lazy ways. LMAO! Whatever powder you are using, it can become your oily hair’s savior! Here's a simple way to use it. To comb the hair, dip a small amount of powder with a puff, Apply to the greasier part of the hair. Use a comb to brush your hair in the opposite direction, adding some powder as you brush. In the process of comb, you can find the grease feeling is disappearing slowly, what replace is the fleeciness feeling. When it's over, shake your head and shake off the excess powder. Using method is the same as the professional dry shampoo, and as you can see, your hair is fluffy and no longer greasy. Powder contains talcum powder, which can effectively absorb excess oil on the face, reduce oily gloss, play a long-lasting makeup effect. Using it on the hair also has same absorption effect. It is a kind of emergency good method to people who need to remove the oil on hair. Attention! When applying powder, apply powder on the hair, not on the scalp or hair roots. This is the need for special attention and care. Powder belongs to cosmetics. if applied to the scalp or hair roots, will block the scalp hair follicles, will cause scalp itching, and even grow some small acne.
How To Add Volume To Straight Hair
Ladies, does your hair lack body? If it’s anything like mine, it will look great for an hour after I straighten it but then all of a sudden it will get flat. Adding more volume is a must for any girl with natural straight tresses, or for anyone who uses a hair straighter on the regular (like me). If you have fine hair, don’t be jealous of the sky-high hairstyles you see in magazines, you can achieve it too! My hair type: I have very dry, naturally curly/wavy hair. It’s a bit hard to manage and gets quite frizzy. I do straighten it often. When I straighten it, I notice that I lose a lot of my hair’s natural body. My #1 trick to combat flat hair is without a doubt dry shampoo! Plus, you can go longer between washes. The products I can’t live without: Dry shampoo - I’m obsessed with the Briogeo Scalp Revival dry shampoo. It’s made with charcoal + biotin and leaves my hair feeling clean! Hair oil - If you don’t have dry hair, you can skip this step, but for my thirsty locks it’s essential. I use the Don’t Despair, Repair strengthening treatment oil by Briogeo. How to get volume step-by-step: Step 1: Start with dry hair that’s freshly brushed. Step 2: Grab your dry shampoo and spray it at your roots. Step 3: Gently rub your hands through your hair to work in the dry shampoo. Step 4: Lightly brush your hair to remove any white residue. Step 5: Finish with a styling oil for an impeccable shine!

Haven Balayage Refresh
Refresher Time The Photos say it all It was time for a refresh on this grown out balayage. Balayage means to freehand paint, so if you tell your hairstylist you want a balayage, they may ask you questions on how you want it! Here my client wanted some brighter money pieces in the front to frame her face, but she didn’t want everything at the scalp because it tends to grow out in a harsh line! Balayage helps get rid of the harsh regrowth lines which helps your hair color last MUCH longer! 6months to a year longer! Products used: Kevin Murphy Blonde.Angel purple shampoo and condish to brighten and tone her blonde and add shine! These products smell like fruit loops! The natural extracts such as bergamot and Lavender Amika’s The Wizard- I swear this product smells so good and the packaging is adorable, it practically sells itself! This is a detangling primer that’s oil based so it’s super hydrating as you comb out those tangles! OYA’s Suede- This is a weightless styling cream that adds shine and softness. It’s relaxing spa water scent really makes you enjoy blow dry time. I then styled my client with some bouncy beach waves with a Babyliss Curling iron size 1 ¼, sprayed with some Kevin Murphy Bedroom.Hair texture spray and combed out for the finished look!
Lazy to clean your hair every day? This is for you!😍
Lazy to clean your hair everyday? This is for you! My hair is a little bit oily but the end of hair is kind of dry, and I believe that most of people have the same problem with me. Honestly, I’m not a diligent girl, and I heard that we can’t wash hair everyday if we have long hair, cause it will take away the protected cover of our hair, and makes the hair dryer at the hair tip. In this case, my hair will not seem that fresh and airy the second day after washing hair. What do we do if we have to meet someone at once? This time, you need something quick and efficiency. I heard of dry shampoo many years ago, and have tried a lot of products, but my favorite is KLORANE - Dry Shampoo With Nettle Aerosol. This is a French hair care brand, and they also have many great shampoo and hair care products. How this product works? This hair dry shampoo also contains powder that likes other dry shampoo, and it use this dry powder to absorb the oil from the scalp. The spray is smooth and even, and it is not white powder but pink, so that the powder is not very obvious on the hair. How to use it? The method of using it is very easy. The only thing you have to do is press the top, and rub the powder in hair until it totally spreads evenly. I forget to say that there is a tip. When you spray the powder, remember to cover your face or nose and mouth, because I always think that this tiny powder will be inhaled in our body. Just in case. Is this product works well? After applying this powder on hair, my hair looks loose and fresh. It likes that I just finish a shower, and have used a really good treatment. This dry shampoo will not make the hair look dry, but with glowing effect. I feel that my hair looks smoother than it looks before. This is a not very popular brand, but I highly recommend this product if you are a lazy girl like me. You will be surprised!

How to maintain Healthy Glory Hair
KÉRASTASE - Elixir Ultime Oil Serum SIZE: 3.4 oz/ 100 mL $62.00 CAD This is basically one of my holy grail products. KÉRASTASE hair oil is perfect for all hair hair types: straight, wavy, curly and coily that can be used before, during, and post blow dry for hair that’s super-shiny, hydrated, and healthy-looking. I am impressed by the smell and feeling. One thing I really like about this is the smell; it does becomes less potent after time though. It leaves my hair so soft, tangle free and smells good. Leaves a bit of shine too. It is oil texture but very light weighted. Highlighted ingredients are Maize Oil: Procaxi Oil; Argan Oil and Camellia Oil which adds suppleness and softness to your hair. It not only smooths and shine the hair but also nourishes at the same time. It’s more light a hair serum. I se this on my ends before drying/styling and i use it to keep frizz down when i wear my hair naturally curly/air dried. my hair is shiny and less frizzy, more manageable. I will be buying this again. Briogeo - Farewell Frizz Blow Dry Perfection Heat Protectant Cream SIZE 4 oz/ 118 mL $30CAD I absolutely love this hair product! Leaves my hair feeling soft and moisturized and smells great! It is creamy texture with the lightweight finishing formula Infused with a Briogeo signature oil that smooths hair, enhances shine, tames frizz, and heat protects. The main formula is Rosehip Oil, Argan Oil and Coconut oil that protects hair from free-radical damages and extensive conditioning. I put it on my dry hair, especially after I use a flat iron. For about 10-15 minutes. Sometimes I applied this product and it blew out soft, smooth, and incredibly shiny. Now I used it on wet hair whether it is blown dry or dries naturally. I feel that it helps deter frizz and combat dryness against breakage, environmental impurities and excess heat. Overall this product gives my hair a great shine boost, and added moisture to my dry ends and does a fantastic job of protecting my hair from my blow dryer and curling iron. Recommend this to girls who uses irons frequently like me!
