HOW TO: AT-HOME BLOWOUT
At-home blowouts are the future of hair styling! Ever since I went to Dry Bar a year ago to get a blowout for $80 (which is just ridiculous in my opinion), I’ve been mastering my at-home blowout. I purchased the Revlon One-Step Volumizer Hair Dryer at Ulta which completely changed the game for my hair after shower hair routine! REVLON - One-Step Volumizer Hair Dryer
Ifyou’re looking for two staples in your hair styling routine, these two products by Ouai are great. The memory mist is a great heat protector- I use it before blow drying and/or straightening to protect my hair from the heat of the devices. This keeps my hair actually very nice and strong and I’ve experienced less split ends from doing this- although that may be in part also due to my recent haircut- but maintaining the split-end free hair sure is working with this product. My split ends are also being well maintained by the rose hair and body oil- I’m using that on damp hair just on the ends to coat my hair in a light protective serum. Its a dry oil, so it doesnt make my hair look or feel oily.
My favorite two products from theouai - Memory Mist is a girl’s best friend. Especially the type of girl who hates having to do their hair every day (like me). Memory Mist gives me up to three good hair days after styling, which makes my mornings so much easier. Ouai’s Matte Pomade is the perfect texturizing product, creating gorgeous separation minus the gritty feeling of other products. My hair still feels soft and looks perfectly undone when I use it.

Don’t pay 400$ to buy a dryer any more!!
If you are in any way debating the purchase of this magical hair wand, PLEASE debate NO LONGER! REVLON - One-Step Volumizer Hair Dryer My hair is so long and although it is naturally on the thin side .. it has always been a multi-step task to get it looking nice, shiny and smooth (all at once) and forget volume - as it has always been an impossible achievement (except when I would go to the hair salon of course, but that’s totally obvi.).Even gave up my Dyson Dryer because it’s a little messy to use everyday.And one of my fellow alumni sorority sisters posted on our alumni chat how great this product is and how it hasn’t changed her life... and I must admit even after reading all the amazing reviews (well mostly amazing) I still hesitated a bit before pressing the order button; but the fact that very little time on my hands gave me the final push .. and boy am I glad I did! I HATE having to blow dry and flat iron my hair everyday! It not only takes forever, it's incredibly damaging. I didn't have high hopes, and when I took it out of the box and couldn't find any instructions I resigned myself to thinking that this would be thrown into the large pile of hair tools that I would never use again. Miraculously, when I turned on the dryer (I only used the low setting), I realized right away that it was incredibly easy to use. To my disbelief, when I was finished with my hair, it looked as if I had just left the salon! It was completely straight, smooth and silky without a flyaway in sight. My drying time has been cut in half.. what before took 2 hair tools (I would first use my hair dryer and then my hair iron so, results were also pinned straight ALWAYS) now is done with only 1 hair tool which not only leaves my hair shiny, frizz free and super smooth but also with some volume!! It works exactly like Dyson but with a much lower price ladies!!! Please do yourself a favor and buy it... you can thank me later..
$60 VS. $550 who’s the winner?
I’ve never been able to master a great at-home blowout, despite having the best hair dryer and smoothing hair products known to man. Moments into the process, a) my super curly hair frizzes in protest, b) I give up when my biceps and delts can no longer handle the burn. That’s why, when I want to go sleek, I am a devotee to hair dryer brushes, which combine the work of round brushing and blow drying hair into one foolproof step, perfect for people like me who "can't dry their own hair." And that's why I love the Dyson AirWrap, which transforms my mop of thick, curly hair in a silky smooth sheet in 15 minutes flat — but it comes with a whopping $550 price tag. Way too expensive. I went to Amazon to find a dupe of Dyson Airwrap — when I stumbled upon the Revlon One-Step. I've seen it on Instagram, Youtube A LOT. And heard some of the hype and was instantly sold by the more than 20,000 reviewers claiming it changed their lives. If it was good enough for them, it was certainly good enough for my low-maintenance (read: lazy) hair care routine. So I decided to give it a try. REVLON - One-Step Volumizer Hair Dryer Is the No.1 Best Seller On Amazon In Beauty Care. The smart design of the brush is what makes this tool unique. The oval shape allows for two different types of brushes to work together simultaneously: The longer, flatter side acts as a hair-straightening paddle brush, while its rounded corners lift the hair from its roots and create volume like a round brush does. I was surprised at how big the One-Step was in person. It was retro-looking in comparison to some of the other hair tools I’ve seen. I washed my hair, towel-dried it and let it air-dry for about 15 minutes while I got ready. Twisting the handle to the high setting, I ran the brush under large sections of my damp hair, then pulled the brush to the ends in curling motion. It was awkward at first because of how big the brush was, but eventually I got the hang of it. It was easier than the times I tried to use a regular blow-dryer and round brush in tandem, and my arms never got tired. My hair looks like I went to the hair salon, had a noticeable amount of volume and shine — a pretty good hair day in my book. I wish it had a smaller barrel size so I could create more volume from the base of my roots, but I know I shouldn’t expect the same results of a traditional blow-dryer blowout. This is a great option for someone who wants a quick and easy way to dry their hair and do simple styling.
Lazy girl must know! Get wavy hair in only 5 minutes!👏👏👏
Wanna nice wavy hair but unwilling to get up early to curl your hair with a curling iron, especially in weekdays? Here I want to share a simple and convenient DIY curling method. You definitely can save more time to sleep longer in the morning! This method only takes you 5 minutes before you go to bed, but brings you perfect naturally curly hair the next morning. In addition, you don’t need any curling iron! So you don’t need to worry about damaging your hair. What you should prepare are tissue and some small rubber bands. Follow the steps below, First, grab a small bunch of hair, basing on the hair volume and what kind of curling style you want, natural waves or crimps or even Afro. Second, tie a tissue to the bunch of hair, then curl your hair with the tissue, use the rubber band to tighten it. You can make freestyle waves. Just make use of your creativity! Third, repeat the above steps until all your hair is done. Then, it’s over. Is it very simple? Do this before sleep, take the tissue off the next morning. If you have enough time and want the curling hair to last for a longer time, you can use a hair dryer blowing at the wrapped hair for a while. Since the ordinary tissue may break easily, you can replace it with wet wipes or face towels. One more suggestion is that in order not to influence your sleep, you can make your hair balls on the top of your head, or divide it into left and right. This method can be an essential skill. You don’t need to carry curling iron any more when you go out or travel. The most surprising thing is that it curl your hair without damaging your hair. What a kind of convenient curling tip! Why not give it a try tonignt?! If you have any questions or suggestions, let me know!👇
Creating sleek and straight hair with the hair straightener
I find that one of the best ways to manage my wavy, thin, and dry hair is to straighten it before heading out of the door. Whilst it may look a little limp at times, I like how it allows me to look put together and sharper. When I was 17 years old, I also discovered this hair service call rebonding, and I have been sticking to stick-straight hair shape for the next decade. Rebonding is a semi-permanent chemical treatment that breaks down natural bonds in the hair and re-arranges them to form new bonds for straight hair. The effects last for a long time (at least 6 months) and it considerably tames down frizzy hair, ideal for those with frizzy and unmanageable hair to get a straight mane every single morning. However, in recent years, I have noticed that my hair is not as healthy as before – my natural hair is brittle at the ends and my scalp tends to flake and itch. I decided to give rebonding a break to focus on restoring my natural hair and scalp back to healthier conditions. On days when I crave sleek straight hair or when I need to look more presentable, I opt for the hair straightener. There are so many types in the market. Do your research according to which best suits your hair type and budget. The one that I have loved for a long time is the Lena LN-508 ion straighening iron. Reasonaly priced, the product has so many key features that I like -turbo ion technology to ensure that the hair is smooth, shiny and frizz-free, titanium tourmaline coating plates that reduce heat damage to hair, a one-touch control panel within easy reach for 5 different heat settings (140,160,180,200,220℃), a 360° swivel cable and a anti-scald design for ease of use, even for clumsy hands like mine. To use, first I wash and blow-dry my hair. Then I comb my hair and spray heat protectant while switching my flat iron on to 180 degrees which is suitable for most thickness of hair. I choose to divide my hair to 4 sections, left and right and then top and bottom. Place your flat iron 1–3 inches above your scalp and close the two heated sides together, with the hair between them. Straightening too close to your scalp may damage the roots or burn your scal and be sure not to clamp too firmly, as this will create a ridge at the top of your hair. Slowly run the iron down the length of your hair. Keep the same amount of pressure on the hair at all times.
Spend more time looking FAB!
I used to hate styling my hair or doing anything that required time and effort with my hair because of how unmanageable it was. I have thick and coarse hair that just doesn’t cooperate with me when I need to get ready, so more often that not, it is in a ponytail or a bun. Now this can be chic, cute, and stylish, but it does get a bit boring for me to just have these two variations. I used to look up tutorial videos of how to create “quick and easy” hairstyles, but they never were quick and easy for my hair texture. But I finally came across this one hairstyle that works really well for my hair, which is the half-up bun. This style is perfect for a number of reasons, first one being that it is so fast to create this look! Secondly, it takes away the thickness of my hair and gives it a lovely shape. And lastly, it works for all lengths of hair! I start by sectioning off the top half of my hair and I pin it away during the initial steps of creating this hairstyle. Because of my coarse hair, I prefer straightening it, and one of the benefits of this style is that only half of the hair requires straightening as the rest of it is in a bun! I use the LESASHA Hair Straightener which is a product I really love. Most other straighteners never work for my rough hair, but I find that my hair really cooperates with this tool and I can get a quick job done with this! Once the bottom part of my hair is completely straightened, I get back to the top half, and create a nice bun with it. Depending on the occasion, or even my mood, I either go for a messy bun with pieces framing my face, or a sleek and neat bun that keeps all the hair away from the front. And I can get this style ready in less than 15 minutes, which for me, is a HUGE win! Do try this style out if you have coarse hair problems like me!
With This Hair Spray Even Typhoon Can’t Mess Up Your Hairstyle!
It has been claimed by celebrities in the past that hairstyle made by this hair spray can't even destroyed by a typhoon LOL. What I want to recommend to you today is this Kind of Schwarzkopf hair spray styling products!Schwarzkopf - Osis+ Session Hairspray Firstly of all let’s talk about my hair.My hair is soft and a little vulnerable. In the past,I always straighten my long hair, so it was okay. I can do some hair styles without any products. After a long time, if I did not straighten my hair, it would not work without hair spray. Sometimes the wind outside is particularly strong. Every time I made a beautiful hairstyle but the wind blows it all messed up, and there was no style at all. So I bought this hair spray on the net, it is said that these “star products” are quite popular. Not to mention whether it is popular, but it really works! Sisters with curly or short hair, just spray a small amount of hair gel on your palm, and then grab the outer and bottom of the hair together to make it look casual, and finally spray hair gel from a longer distance to fix hair, so you can look all good! Girls like me who often do hair, coil up your hair, spray it and then don't go to touch it any more, because there will be a natural messy beauty.The best part of this hairspray is, even if you carelessly use too much, it also won't make your oily and hard,but very natural, and hard to be messed up. If you have bangs, please remember to spray it on the root of the hair, so that it can last a long time but will not looks like “fly feet”. No. 3 sprinkler head is black, while No. 2 sprinkler head is red. Personally I prefer the black. Did you use it before? Is this your fav hair spray?

How to get big wavy hair in 10 minutes? I'll show you👉👉
In fact, it is very easy to get wavy hair at home! First of all, you need to prepare the following things: a comb, hair fluffy spray, curling iron, straight hair comb, and a hair dryer. The first step you need to do is to wash your hair, blow it to 70-80% dry with a hair dryer, and apply hair oil. The second step is to power on the curling iron. I use Lena and riwa from Germany. One is a 32mm large curl and the other is a 28mm curl. The third step is to determine whether you want large or small curls. Put a small amount of hair into the curling iron, and choose the style you want, such as: wavy, curly and so on. Step 4: If you have thick hair, you can tie up hair with bands and divide them into several equal parts. step 5: Done! Go on a date! I highly recommend lena-s7 straight roll dual-purpose splint. I used to try their curling iron. After dyeing my hair, I wanted to get a straight hair splint again. Then I saw this dual-purpose splint, and the I fell in love with it. It is equipped with anti scald roll cover, so you don't need to worry about heat damage at all. It also send me a bottle of hair oil. My friend also tried it and they felt that they could easily straighten up before applying a little gel or spray. I hope that everyone can make their own hairstyles in the shortest time at home.
Easy Hair Hacks to Look Great on Lazy Days
For days when you need to get in and out of the bathroom in record time, there’s not always the option to perfect curl your hair or do a fancy updo. If your straightener is already hot, don’t turn it off. Use it to add subtle ways to your hair before you head out the door. This trick gives freshly straightened hair a little more body and volume. My hair type: I have super dry, frizzy hair. It’s naturally pretty curly but I do use heat often. I like straightening my hair but I don’t like how it looks when it lays flat. This little trick saves me a ton of time in the morning when my iron is already on. Products I can’t live without: My ghd hair straightener is one of the best purchases I’ve made when it comes to my hair. It’s around $200 UDS but I use it all the time. Plus, it’s ceramic which is more gentle on people with finer hair like mine. The Living Proof Humidity Shield ($30) works wonders for me in the summer. Once I finish my hair, I spray a bit of this to my ends and help keep the frizz at bay. How to curl your hair with a flat iron: Step 1: Start with pre-straightened hair. If you have naturally straight stresses you can skip this step! Step 2: Grab a 1-inch section of hair and wrap it around one side of the barrel of your flat iron. Step 3: Twist the iron toward you while clamping - this is what makes the curl! Step 4: Spray hairspray or a finishing spray of choice to make sure the look lasts. Bonus if you can even rock these curls tomorrow too. That’s the lazy girl’s ultimate dream!
