💙What I got my bf for Valentines Day💙
Happy Valentines Day everyone! Time for some self-love & self-care! I’m not super big into Valentines Day, & my bfs birthday is in a month, but since this came in the mail I really wanted to gift it to him today. He puts most of his skin/hair/body care in my hands... So unless I’m pushing it on him, he’s stubborn & not that big into self care💔 ❤️Sooo, I had been secretly researching things for hair loss & came across red light therapy. Red light therapy is a safe & natural treatment option for (mainly hereditary types of) hair loss. It’s been gaining popularity with professionals & the public. Backed by a strong base of peer-reviewed clinical research, red light treatments have increased hair count, hair density & hair thickness for all genders. HAIRMAX - LaserComb Ultima 9 Device$199 Though this device is a bit pricey, there’s another comb from Hairmax with only 3 more lasers (12) & that one is $399 🤷🏻♀️ There’s even a helmet/headband like device that’s $799! So compared to their other models, & other brands, this was an affordable option & had really great reviews... I’m really curious & will be so excited & happy for him if he sees results. I figure it can’t hurt. Though he was like, ugh I have to do this for 30 minutes a week?! I said I’ll do it for him lol. That’s love right? How it works/The Claims: 🌱This device works through a process known as Photo-Biostimulation, similar to Photosynthesis (which causes growth in plants) 🚨It also utilizes Laser Phototherapy. This “laser comb” delivers visible light in the red spectrum to your scalp. This therapeutic, nourishing light energy stimulates growth factors, extends the growth phase of hair & helps to restore a healthy hair growth cycle, which results in new hair growth with increased density & fullness. There’s a lot of research & so many people seem to find it effective. So I’m really excited, even though my hair is so thick I wish I could just transfer some to him. 🧬Future science I’m sure... That being said, I have read that this is mainly effective for those with hereditary types of hair loss & unfortunately those suffering from Alopecia may not see results... 🤞🏼I’ll definitely be taking photos & giving this device a complete review & updates as we go along. 💙These we’re actually 2 minis from my Sephora bday present, but last time we ran out of Moroccanoil Treatment Oil he asked if I would buy more! It’s so cute to me when he actually likes a product... I’m still trying to get him a real skincare routine that he’ll stick with, but that’s a long post for another day🙃 MOROCCANOIL - Moroccanoil Treatment
Birthday Gifts From Sephora 🎈
Since I am a Beauty Insider member & my birthday is in a week, Sephora sent me this awesome package! •MOROCCANOIL - Moroccanoil Treatment •MOROCCANOIL - Night Body Serum •MOROCCANOIL - Hydrating Styling Cream •FIRST AID BEAUTY - Pure Skin Face Cleanser •FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream I have actually used all of these products before except the Moroccan Oil Body Serum! I am excited to give it a try because I have loved all of the other products from Moroccan Oil! Their treatment serum & styling cream are amazing! You only need a little bit of each & they make your hair look & smell amazing! I already use 100% Argan Oil in my hair daily so adding this into the picture is going to make my hair even better! I’m actually going to be dying my hair (either ombré or balayage) next weekend so I can use all the hydration possible!!! First Aid Beauty is also one of my favorite brands. I use their cleanser daily already so this one is going to get used up when I’m done with the tube I already have! The repair cream I don’t use in my face because I think it’s a bit too thick but I do use it everywhere else! I use it on my hands, arms, legs & feet! It really is an “everything” cream! I even use it on my 1 year old son! His cheeks have been getting pretty dry lately because it’s been so cold where we live & this is the only cream that I have found that helps him instantly! & we have tried every single “baby” cream before trying this! & none have held up to the ultra repair cream. What’s great about the FAB Cream is it is completely safe for babies, & their whole “ultra” line is also safe for sensitive skin. Lately I have been using the FAB ultra lip repair lip balm & I absolutely love it! Have you guys tried any of these products before?? If so, what’d you think? 💖 @cherie@CheriePick@Cheriebeauty
BEST OF SEPHORA: HAIR PRODUCTS 💆🏾♀️
Sephora introduced me to these products years ago and they are still some of my favorites to this day! I love Moroccan Oil products because they are super versatile. I naturally have very dry coily hair and most of their products give my hair a beautiful shine and plenty of moisture to help my hair from breaking. I also wear wigs and no matter what texture I wear these products bring life back into my hair giving my shine, bounce and volume! MOROCCANOIL - Moroccanoil Treatment is made with argan oil. It is thicker than olive oil but thinner than castor oil. This product is full of fatty acids that promote hair growth and strengthen hair. When I use this product on my natural dry, coily hair I apply liberally making sure to saturate my hair from roots to end. When I wear wigs with looser textures I apply a dime sized amount to my hands and rub it in to my hair. This allows me to add shine back into my hair when it looks dull without weighing it down. It also acts as a great heat protectant for when I am straightening my hair. I ran out of my MOROCCANOIL - Moisture Repair Conditioner so it is not pictured here but love the moisture repair shampoo and conditioner set. The MOROCCANOIL - Moisture Repair Shampoo and conditioner are creamy and rich in argan oil, keratin and fatty acids that strengthen, condition and moisturize hair! This is hands down the best shampoo and conditioner I’ve ever used. It’s great for all hair types. It leaves my hair feeling silky. Worth every penny! (OGX Coconut Miracle oil combo gives me similar results and I’ve been using them more lately because they are sold at my local pharmacy. They are also cheaper in price). MOROCCANOIL - Hydrating Styling Cream this works great for my wigs. For straight hair I apply a small amount to my hair before styling . It helps with frizz and adds shine. For wavy to curly textures I apply more liberally and it defines my curls and adds a bit of hold as well as shine and moisture. Although this product works wonders for my wigs it’s not the best for my natural 4C hair. I find that the moisture from hair creams doesn’t absorb well into my hair and often leave white flakes all over once it dries. Oils work better to moisturize my coily hair. #CheriePartner
Hair Care 👩🏻🦰
I have always tried to take good care of my hair so I have experimented with so many products. These are all my currently favorites: •☀️ Nature Lab. - Shine Clarifying Scalp Scrub - I use this after shampooing & being using conditioner. This stuff foams up sooo much so you really only need a pea sized amount! It makes my roots so soft & shiny! Love it!! •☀️ RAW SUGAR - Healing Power Hair Masque - I put this in my hair after washing out conditioner & leave it in for about 5-10 minutes in the shower while I shave & wash my body. I can’t believe how soft this makes my hair! I can’t live without this stuff!! •☀️ Apothecary BLVD Thickening Biotin Leave-In ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ - I actually use this extra brand of shampoo & conditioner & I love them so I figured why not try the leave-in too! I’m so glad I did because it has helped my hair growth so much & helped me get rid of so much breakage that I have always dealt with! •☀️MOROCCANOIL - Moroccanoil Treatment - I have used this stuff for YEARS! It is so amazing & you only need a little bit! It makes your hair so soft & shiny but it doesn’t weigh it down like other oil products tend to. It literally gives your hair this beautiful glow! Such a must have!! •☀️ JOHN FRIEDA - Secret Weapon Touch-Up Crème - This stuff is my holy grail!! I have always had some breakage on top of my head, leaving these annoying little hairs that always stick up! Well this stuff holds them all down without making my hair hard or even looking like I have product in! I wish I had found this stuff sooner!!! Have you ever used any of these products? What are you absolutely favorite hair products?? 💖 @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
January Empties Review - [skin, hair, & makeup]
As sad as get to finish a product, I may be slightly more excited to start something new! But before I open those bottles, here are my reviews of January Empties!! epicuren DISCOVERY - Crystal Clear Eye Makeup Remover This eyemakeup remover takes everything off! Even magnetic lash liner! This is also a treatment, in that it has peptides to help lengthen lashes and vitamin k to help address dark circles. It has no scent and a soft velvety finish. I have a back-up bottle on hand at all times! #Osmosis - Refresh Revitalizing Eye Cream[products]#[ThreeStars] I love the line of Osmosis, but this eye cream wasnt my fave. It has more of a gel consistency, and the applicator is nice, but I didnt feel it did much for my eyes. I felt I needed more hydration. It didnt hurt my eyes, as I’m sensitive. But I much prefer my eyecream from Herbal Dynamics Beauty, which is 1/2 the price! Herbal Dynamics Beauty - Flawlessly Firm Toning Body Butter I LOVE this body butter. I have 2 other posts about this product on my Cherie page. #Blissoma - Pure Sensitive Care Complex[products]#[ThreeStars] Blissoma is a holistic line and uses all plant based ingredients. This felt nice on my skin and did not break me out, but I did not like the earthy smell. Again I have to enjoy the experiencing using my skincare, and this did not deliver Herbal Dynamics Beauty - Cucumber & Blue Lotus Micellar Cleansing Water This was my first time using Micellar water. I liked it as an am cleanser, or for a quick refresh after a run. This would not be my go-to for removing my full face makeup. It did burn my eyes if I used it to remove my mascara. For days I dont wear makeup, this works just fine. epicuren DISCOVERY - Bulgarian Rose Otto Hands down my favorite rose facial oil. Smells so good! And feels so luxurious on the skin. For normal to dry skin types. I always have this on-hand as well. butter LONDON - Power Up Mascara I liked it! It was water resistant, jet black, and lasted all day. Gave both length and lift. MOROCCANOIL - Moroccanoil Treatment I always love this hair oil, but i’m trying to stay away from artificial fragrance. That’s why it’s down 1 star. glo - Luminous Liquid Foundation SPF 18 Great coverage, non-pore clogging, and lasts all day. I LOVE this foundation

How I maintain my new pink hair?
For those of you who often bleach and dye your hair, what's the biggest problem? Is the quality of your hair getting worse and the color of your hair dying out? I am a frequent hair colorist and recently went to the barber's to have my hair bleached and dyed pink. However, it has been dyeing for two or three weeks and the color is almost out of color. Every time I lose color, It makes me wonder if I'm using the wrong dye product, or if I'm washing my hair too much and too often, which is what's causing the color to last so long. It is not actually, dye hair product again easy to use, also very difficult lasting, maintain at most one to two months, let alone pink this kind of light color, will soon fade into yellow hair state, very not good-looking, the hair looks very no vitality. PANTENE - Intense Rescue Shots Since I used this small egg hair mask of Pantene, there is no trouble that drops hair quickly again, new hair color can maintain 2 months easily. This hair mask is a single package, the package is really super cute. Products have the choice of warm colors and cold colors, I choose the cold colors. There are 8 in each box, and I usually use them once every 3-4 days, so a box can be used for about a month. Its flavour is very good smell, it is light flower fragrance, use on the hair very moist, can feel the hair absorbed a lot of nutrient, let dye hair pigment not to be taken away by redundant moisture and cleaner, can lock hair color while, repair the withered hair after dyeing hair. Kill two birds with one stone. Now my hair has been able to maintain a very smooth state every day, and dyeing hair once can keep the color of 2-3 months without losing color. If you are also like hair dye friends, recommend you try this hair mask oh, I really unlimited buyback!

Incredible texture shampoo! Bloody color!
Besides hair texture, everyone's hair structure is also different. The durability of the hair shape is closely related to the different hair stucture. Generally speaking, there are three types. They are fine, medium and coarse, or called thick. Here has an easy way to measure. if your hair is thinner than sewing thread, that is fine. Otherwise it's coarse. If they have similar size, it is medium. Although my hair belongs to medium width in structure, with the oil hair texture, If I don't wash my hair frequently, my hair looks greasier than other people. Blowing hairstyle only lasts for half an hour on my head. If the wind comes，an elaborate hairstyle will be gone. If you are a fan of changing your hairstyle, this hair structure may cause you some problems. I used to dye my hair red. So how to keep the red color for longer time becomes a concern. My friend recommended infuse my color ruby shampoo. This shampoo is for vibrant reds and candy pink, and it's 100% vegan, so it's a reassuring shampoo to use. This brand comes from England. It can slow down the speed of color fading result from the frequent shampooing. Fixing your hair to the color your dye. 😧The shampoo is red and it smells like tomatoes! Actually, I don’t like this smell. There also have two drawbacks. 😧First, it would dye it on my nails…it can make my blue nails into pink. Nothing but nail polish remover can get the red out of my nails. Maybe it can further proof that its color fixation is really good? 😧Second, I don’t like the texture! I have posted the photo. It really looks like nail polish. For medium Width hair, it is not as easy to modelling as thick hair. If your hair is oil, then you have no choice but to wash your hair frequently. Such hair structure with frequent shampoo, to the person that dyed new color, the new color lasts a month time at most. If you can accept the drawbacks from infuse shampoo, infuse my color shampoo is really useful. However, I recommend wearing gloves when you wash your hair. Otherwise it's really easy to dye your nails at the same time. My. - Infuse My. Colour - Ruby Shampoo

LONGER, SHINIER HAIR! 😍 WEEK OF MASKS DAY: 5✨
Show your hair some love with a hair mask! I usually DIY hair masks but this one was recommended to me by my stylist. It helps: nourish, lengthen and restore my bleached/ damaged hair. I apply this after conditioner in the shower. I let it sit for about 15 minutes than rinse off with cold water to retain moisture. Using this mask has definitely helped my hair grow to the length it is now 🥰 (The only down side to this product is the ingredients are not all clean 😢)
REDKEN-Extreme Mega Mask
Worth the money? For Kerastase Blond Absolu Conditioner, my answer is...🤫
I found a lot of bloggers recommend it and I finally decided to buy it! I dyed my hair three times within 3 months last winter and felt it was hurt very badly. At first I didn’t feel anything, but then my hair became like dry grass and I couldn't even comb it. Because I was always using Kerastase's hair oil, so I think this hair conditioner must be definitely good, and I believe there is a reason for such an expensive price. KÉRASTASE - Blond Absolu Strengthening Conditioner The scent of this conditioner is very good, and I heard that it is the fragrance of Hermes, but the first thing I smelled is the fresh, a little fresh orange pomelo like the river in the morning. It's a little thick and sticky when I apply it to my hair. There is a thick feeling that the hair is indeed being repaired. The first time I left the hair mask on my hair for about 5 minutes, it didn't feel good when I washed it out with water, and I could still feel the texture of my dry hair. At that time, I thought,the effect is not as good as they said! I want to take it back, but not reconciled, I wiped it again, kept in on my hair for another 3 minutes, and massaged it well. It was like the amazing moment! When I wipe my hair with a towel, there is no longer a situation where the hair can't be wiped away! (Sometimes my hair is extremely dry, and just like tangled hay.It made me even want to cut it off), After wiping to a semi-dry, I applied 3 pumps of Kashi hair oil to my hair. At this moment, my hair was so smooth that I could comb it by hand and it was very shiny! I went to dry it afterwards and my hair was soft and smooth, I couldn't help but touch it for a long time. I would definitely rebuy it. What's your fav conditioner?

Keep your new hair shade for longer👩🏻🎤
🤩ABOUT ME: SOFT AND THIN HAIR. DAMAGED DUE TO DYE. MEDIUM BROWN SHADE. I hardly dye my hair before, so my hair always in a shining condition. However, I blenched my hair a few months ago. It did damage my hair. I can feel my hair become dry. Fortunately, every time when I friend see my hair, they still think they are shining and my new hair shade is attractive. It must be related to my hair products! I have introduced Aussie hair mask before. This post is about my new hair product, OI conditioner, which has been used for over two weeks. I disliked this product when I first tried this. I did not know how to control the dosage from the circular container. And the texture is very dry. Moisturizing is not as well as Aussie. However! After cleaning my hair, they are really soft and hydrating. I wash my hair every two days. This product does not contain any benzoyl preservatives, so it is ideal for frequent daily use. Both Aussie and OI are effective in protecting damaged hair. But I prefer Aussie because it's more cost-effective. Every time you buy it, you can get a free travel suit : ) davines - OI Conditioner
