little changes to improve you hair health
Happy New Year 2021! 2020 was a wild rollercoaster and I think many of us will say that we are happy it is over! Something I’ve recently been getting very into is hair health. I have always had very thick hair and a lot of it too. It wasn’t until it started getting unnecessarily tangly, that I decided to give my hair a little more attention. For reference, I do not color my hair regularly- I have gotten highlights twice in my life. Here are some little changes you can make to give your hair the extra love it deserves. 1. Wash your hair less! I wash my hair twice a week now (in comparison to nearly every day when I was a swimmer). It will take your hair a little bit of adjusting, so the extra oil production will go down within a few weeks. Fewer washes also saves you time. If you need a little bit of a pick-up, try some dry shampoo instead. Batiste - Blush Dry Shampoo Floral & Flirty 2. If you must use heat on your hair (blowdryer, flat iron, curling iron), then make sure to use a heat protectant beforehand! This will help prevent more breakage and damage you get as a result of heat tools. MOROCCANOIL - Perfect Defense Heat Protectant 3. Try to avoid wearing tight hairstyles daily and sleeping with your hair in, for example, a pony tail. Tight hairstyles cause hair to break more easily! 4. Use a wet brush (or wide-toothed comb) in the shower. I gently comb through my hair when I have my conditioner in. Wet brush - Wet Original Brush 5. Nourish your hair when you’re out of the shower. Using hair masks or oils post-shower help add moisture to your hair and in turn prevent breakage. I use a pump of argan oil on my wet hair and it does wonders for me. Other oils that can be used are coconut, castor, and even olive. MOROCCANOIL - Moroccanoil Treatment 6. Dry your hair with a microfiber towel or an old t-shirt. Why? Regular towels have rough surfaces. The friction caused by drying can promote frizz and lead to more breakage. TURBIE TWIST - Microfiber Hair Towel 7. Try sulfate-free shampoo. Sulfates are safe and clean effectively. And I recommend them for anyone with very greasy hair that washes often because it simply gets the job done. However, if you have dyed, course, damaged, and/or frizz-prone hair, I recommend trying a sulfate-free shampoo. Sulfate-free shampoo is milder than those with sulfates. They are also less drying than sulfate shampoos (sulfates are so good at cleaning, they wash out all the oils that would be good for our scalp). LOVE beauty AND planet - Love Beauty & Planet Indian Lilac and Clove Leaf Positively Shine Sulfate Free Shampoo 8. Try some vitamins that promote hair growth. Anything with collagen, biotin, or omega-3 (found in fish oil) are said to be great promoters of hair growth and generally stronger hair. Of course if you choose not to take supplements, you may always find food sources to receive them from. OLLY - Undeniable Beauty Multivitamin Gummies Grapefruit Glam 9. Brush your hair before going to bed. It helps distribute your hair’s oils that have gathered at your scalp. It also helps stimulate your scalp. I personally sleep in a loose braid as well. There you have a few easy tips! I started making some of these changes about a month ago and I can honestly say that I see a difference. Let me know if you have any more tips or if any of these have helped you! Stay safe and healthy. -------------------------------------------- Thank you for giving my post a read! I am excited to share my thoughts on topics I am passionate about. :) LG, Louisa
The Best Kept Secret For Thin Hair
The problem with thin hair is that it can be just so difficult to style. Because it is thin, there often isn’t very much to work with - despite never ending backcombing to give it both body and texture. What makes it worse is the fact that thin hair often becomes lank hair due to how greasy it gets. My thin hair gets greasy even though I wash it every day or every other day. I had always believed that one of the best things you can do for thin hair is to wash and condition it with a good quality shampoo that doesn’t strip hair of its necessary oils with harsh chemicals. Instead, a gentle shampoo and conditioner is the way forward. However, I’ve recently been told of a fantastic hack for thin hair that has really slowed down the speed with which my hair gets greasy as well as giving it that much needed volume. I was told to try out a dry shampoo and spray that into my roots. Dry shampoo is no new thing, but I was told to spray it into my roots at night time - not in the morning when I get ready for my day. The results have been fantastic and it has meant I can go longer between actual washes and my hair is consequently a lot less greasy and actually has oomph at the roots. The dry shampoo that I’ve been using is Batiste Blush Dry Shampoo. The largest can, at 400ml lasts for a very long time and will cost around £5. It’s a great product for an impressively low price. There are other fragrances that you can try too if the Blush smell isn’t for you. Plus, the range has also brought out dry shampoos that are better for darker hair as the spray is not as icy white as the regular range. I’ve also used Wella Professionals Dry Me. It’s an ok product. The packaging is a lot sleeker so looks better on my dressing table, but actually in terms of efficacy of making my hair have more volume, I far prefer Batiste. Plus the price difference cannot be debated either. Wella’s Dry Me is far more expensive and no way near as good. It’s around £10 for a 180ml bottle. Finally, if you worry about drying out your hair this way, don’t be. I was a little nervous about how parched my hair could become when using this as I would not be using conditioner quite so much, but I’ve found that my ends are just as healthy as they were before.

FLAT HAIR? I got you✨☺️
Hi guys!! My hair is normally pretty straight and doesn’t have a lot of volume! I found this routine on tik tok and it’s a life savor😍 -this absorbs all the oil at the roots! Batiste - Original Dry Shampoo Clean & Classic (spray at roots) -this is great for adding volume/texture! AIIR - Texture Spray (spray throughout your hair as needed) I also wash my hair 2-3x a week! I feel as if this works a bit better if you hair is not freshly washed! I do this literally every single day! You can do this once in the morning or if you need the extra volume you can spray as needed throughout the day ☺️☺️
Tips for Hot Rolling Thin Hair!!!
Hey guys!!! So I know I clearly have Afro-Textured hair buttttt I’ve done a couple articles on various hair textures and wanted to share some insight! Ok, so for thin hair the bigger the better. This means volume and if possible height depending on face shape and style. You want to create fullness through curly volume!!! ￼Start on clean hair. If you haven’t already washed your hair perhaps a dry shampoo such as Batiste - Original Dry Shampoo Clean & Classic! Oily and unclean hair will weigh your hair down. ￼Use a texturizing product. Thin hair can be hard to style, in this case, particularly hard to physically manipulate. By using a product such as Kyn. - Texture Sprayit can greatly help you wrap the hair around the roller easier. ￼Hold the rollers horizontally. T3 - Volumizing Hot Rollers Luxe for Volume, Body, and Shineare fantastic rollers to use for thin hair and by placing them horizontally you can greatly increase the volume of your hair. The end result will be a tousled effect. ￼Use a strong hold spray. You don’t want your curls to fall and be having thin hair they are already susceptible to falling faster. Hair spray like KENRA PROFESSIONAL - Volume Spray 25 Non-Aerosol Super Hold Finishing Spraywill aid in keeping your curls curly and your style kept all day! Having thin hair does not mean you can’t style your hair the way you want to! It just means you’ll have to make some adjustments. Just like hair prone to dryness has to make adjustments regarding moisture. Learning to style your hair to your liking can be a challenge but it will soon come naturally. What have you found that helped your hair with thinness?

Finally got my match
Perfect and safe to use on kertain treated hairs This is one of the best dry shampoos I have used and is awesome quality compared to a lot of higher end ones I have used. Its at an amazing price point and I love the scents The best one is coconut one . After using so many dry shampoo . I can say it's perfect for me and safe for kertain treated hairs . It's free of talc . It smells great and leaves no residue . More over its cheapBatiste - Batiste Dry Shampoo and now my go to dry shampo always ❤️
This a dry shampoo trial size i received by @amika and recently finished. I use dry shampoo all the time as I do not wash my hair every day and have quite an oily scalp. Dry shampoos are a really good way to neutralize that oiliness and give my hair a clean look, however this one I felt like I had to spray on alot more than I normally would with my regular dry shampoo, so it ran out much quicker. It worked just as well to get rid of the oily hair look, but again, with use of more product as compared to my other dry shampoo, and so Id have to say I prefer the “less is more” product. Plus at 33$ versus my 12$ drugstore one- its a no brainer! My original dry shampoo is Batiste - Batiste Dry Shampoo which is much cheaper and allows me to use less product, and therefore would last me longer. #cheriepartner

Rate my hair care routine for my curly/wavy hair
So I have been trying to mess with my hair routine to better define my curls. I have curly/wavy hair, more like beach curls is what my fam said..I am new to hair care so would love some tips on how to better define my curls more. Here’s what I currently use. I was about 2-3 times per week depending if I swam or not. I live in a hot/dry climate and love to swim when I can for exercise REDKEN - Extreme Shampoothis is new to my mix and bought during ultas jumbo sale. So far I notice nothing different to what I used before but it doesn’t seem to make it worse so still deciding. I use a handheld hair scrub I found on amazon to wash my hair and love how it got rid of my dandruff just from using a new tool REDKEN - All Soft Conditioner I was using this with its shampoo but ran out of the shampoo..loved the two together because I felt my hair getting softer and silkier with each use. May end up going back to this set if I don’t find something better for my hair SheaMoisture - Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Masque Packette I use this once a week in the shower and it does make a difference but I think it weighs down my hair too much so looking for recommendations! DevaCurl - WAVE MAKER Touchable Texture Whip I love to use this product to help define my curls more but wish it wasn’t so expensive so I took out one star. I use about a quarter size in my hair when wet and doesn’t weigh it down ogx - Nourishing Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum I use this after my hair has dried and so far I really love this stuff! I notice the frizz decreasing and it doesn’t weigh my hair down. I was using Paul Mitchell’s skinny serum but that’s so expensive I found something else to help but at a better price and so far it’s great! Batiste - Bastie Dry Shampoo love this for days 2-3 on my roots. I can see a big difference and don’t see myself getting a different kind ever! It cleans up my roots and I never see any residue or white powder look after I rub the product in. PANTENE - Pro-V Curl Mousse to Tame Frizz for Soft and Touchable Curls I have had this mousse for years and a friend with curly hair said to use a mousse to help hold my curls better..once this is empty I need to find something better to hold my curls without the crunchy feeling. I am trying to find better ways to hold my curls and get the curls more near the roots. I didn’t realize till recently that my hair was so curly so I just brushed it before and threw it up till I figured out what my hair was really about. So I’m new to curly hair care and would love tips and affordable recommendations on products! Thanks!!
Batiste - Bastie Dry Shampoo I was very excited excited to try out this cult-classic dry shampoo that people RAVE about.... but boy am I disappointed. This dry shampoo supposedly adds texture, refuses oiliness on the hair and scalp, and DOESN’T LEAVE A WHITE CAST?!! This definitely left a white cast on my BLONDE hair even after massaging into my scalp. I really can’t imagine people with darker hair liking this! It didn’t add any good, wanted texture. And my hair was not much less oily after I used it. Keep in mind, my hair was one day hair so the fact that it looked oily after using this is not a great sign! I definitely didn’t like it, but I know everyone’s hair and skin is so different, who knows! Please comment your thoughts!!💛

Hidden your greasy hair😏
ABOUT ME: SOFT AND THIN HAIR. VERY EASY TO GET OIL. Actually, I have to wash my hair every day if I want to have a fresh and clean hair. However, I really don’t want to waste time on my hair every day! So I changed my way to wash it every two to three days. But always for the second day, my hair become greasy,and I am too lazy to wash it! What should I do? I have a hair style order. 😏 The first day is pretty shoulder stralight hair. The second day is ponytail for a little bit oil. And for the third day, ok…ponytail cannot save the greasy. I will make a buns style! First, using dry shampoo on scalp. Remember to spray the hair piece by piece to ensure that all oil is removed. Do not spray too much at one time. It’s hard to rub it over your head due too much white powder. Then finishing a buns style. Start with a pony tail then roll the poly tail up like the last photo I have posted. Using the other rubber band on it. For the last step, loose short hair is fixed with styling gel. I do not have some specific styling gel to recommend. I always use my boyfriend’s styling gel.So any of them is fine. No one can find your hidden greasy. 😛 Batiste - Cherry Dry Shampoo Fruity & Cheeky
Lazy girl hair hacks! Click Me👇
Do you ever see people who walk around with luscious healthy locks all the time and you wonder what their secret is? I mean, let’s be honest - who really has the time to go to the salon as often as they’d like? I’m in exactly the same boat. But over the past few years I’ve acquired a few tips and tricks for all my low maintenance lazy girls out there who want to look and feel good with minimal effort– who would’ve thought it’s that simple and maintainable to get amazing feeling hair? 1) Invest in a good leave in treatment You can never go wrong with a good leave in treatment. One to look out for is a product with multiple functions – that way you don’t have to fuss around with too many products, and you won’t need to feel guilty that you’re not doing enough (since you’re getting multiple benefits from just one product alone). One of my favourite leave in treatments is the “incredible milk 12 effects” by milkshake. I was recommended this one by my hairdresser - it smells amazing, is lightweight and leaves your hair looking fluffy and feeling nourished. It’s the perfect consistency too – it’s moisturising without feeling like it’s weighing your hair down. 2) Do not pick at your split ends! Ok I’m definitely guilty of this one – picking your split ends is somewhat addicting when you’re sitting around with nothing to do. But split ends are irreversible – you can’t repair them once they’re there. The good news is that getting rid of them is simple – just make sure to give yourself a trim every 4 – 6 weeks and hey presto! 3) Use a wide tooth wooden comb Before I’d switched to a wooden comb, I was using a plastic bristle brush which I thought was doing the job. Oh how wrong I was. My hair was constantly building up static and I was getting tonnes of split ends. Having used a wide toothed wooden comb for the past few months, it’s safe to say that I’m not going back! It’s a lot gentler, it doesn’t pull or yank on your hair unnecessarily and it doesn’t make your hair frizz from the static like a plastic brush does. Also combs are a lot easier to clean than brushes - you don’t need to waste time getting in between all the nooks and crannies of the bristles. 4) Use a microfibre towel Microfibre towels are great. They’re amazing for absorbing extra moisture and reducing the static on your hair – your hair will require a lot less heat to dry and you get much less frizz when using one. It’s great for cutting out the drying time and keeping your hair out your face at the same time. I’ve been using this microfibre hair towel by Aquis for over half a year now. What I like about this one is the button sewn onto the towel – it stops the towel from unravelling suddenly and keeps your hair up and in place. 5) Let your hair air dry! Ok I admit most people probably know this one already - but how many of us actually do it? A good habit to get into is washing your hair in the evenings and leaving enough time for it to air dry before you go to sleep. For people who live in a country with a warmer environment – you have no excuse! If you feel your hair needs an extra boost of freshness the next morning, try using a dry shampoo. One of my favourites is this cherry scented dry shampoo by Batiste. It’s easy to rub in and leaves your hair smelling fruity fresh! Batiste - Cherry Dry Shampoo Fruity & Cheeky
Batiste Dr Shampoo
My OG can’t live without beauty buy! I’ve easily bought 50 cans over the years. My hair is dark and colored so I try to wash it every other day at the most. After I color I go as long as I can. This dry shampoo keeps my hair looking fresh and doesn’t give a white cast. No residue and doesn’t feel heavy or sticky either. The Bare scent is my favorite. - light and fresh. Batiste - Bare Dry Shampoo Clean & Light
One of my favorite dry shampoos 💆🏼♀️
I always try to find other dry shampoo brands to try, but for someeee reason I always find myself repurchasing Batiste!! I think it’s because for the price, it’s really a great product. And they have so many different kinds, like dark for brunettes, scents if you want, and more. This is one of the only dry shampoos that I feel actually soaks up the oils in my hair and helps give it that volume on no wash days. I know there are other way better dry shampoos out there, but I haven’t yet decided to take the plunge and splurge on a high end one 😫 I want to! And I know I need to try them, but for now I’m glad I have my Batiste to fall back on lol 💕 I will say, I get a little frustrated with the residue / color it leaves on my hair thought. It does leave a bit of a white cast if you don’t brush it out enough. And I have tried their brunette hair dark colored one, but that one stains my fingers and my white bathroom 😅😅😅. That’s the only reason I won’t give it 5 stars 😉 If anyone has any recommendations for good dry shampoos that you can’t live without, especially ones for brunettes, please comment them for me under this post!!🙌🏼❤️ #dryshampoo #batiste #nowashdays #CherieCreator
I Use These Drugstore Products Every Day!
Batiste - Pink Pineapple Dry Shampoo Fruity & Carefree HASK - Argan Oil Repairing Shine Oil #Cheriepartner I can’t live without these two haircare products and they’re super affordable! My hair type is long and thick, sometimes gets frizzy in the humidity. I love to add volume to my roots and add shine and hydration to my hair! Hask Argan Oil: This is widely available at any drugstore and it’s only $7! They also have smaller bottles at $2.99. I love using this on damp hair to hydrate the ends of my hair. The oil also speeds up the hair drying process when it’s wet. I also enjoy using this on dry hair if my hair needs a little added shine. The second photo will show you the texure of this oil, not too thick and not too thin! This is a holy grail for me! Batiste Dry Shampoo: I’ve been using this for years! I’m sure a lot of you have tried this dry shampoo but this brand is seriously my favorite. It’s widely available online and in stores and it’s less than $7! I love using this so I don’t have to wash my hair everyday. It absorbs the oil in my roots and gives my hair volume at the same time! I love using this before bed by spraying it into my roots. Over night, the powder will rub into your hair and when you wake up, it’ll be super fresh and volumized. What’s your favorite dry shampoo? These are the two drugstore haircare products I cannot live without! I’m excited to try more!
It’s a no for me 🤷🏼♀️
When I saw this product I thought it could be a really good idea, but also I was skeptical because wouldn’t a foam make your hair wet and possibly sticky? Well turns out, I was right! Luckily I tried this when I was already going to hop into the shower that night because my hair would have been ruined. The instructions say to shake well, then spray foam out, then massage into dry hair toll absorbed but I found it to just make my hair wet and sticky. Before I toss it I may try to do it and then blow dry it in to see if I get better results but I’d recommend you go for a powder spray instead. Wanted to like it but sadly was a miss for me. Has anyone had any luck with dry shampoo foams?
- Dry Shampoo
I seriously love Batiste dry shampoo! I use it almost daily. Not only does it freshen your hair, eliminate oils, it’s an excellent all over spray that you can use right after you wash your hair for extra body and grip while styling. . The 2 scents that I’m featuring is the Cherry which has a nice fruity smell. I don’t smell much of a cherry scent but that’s ok. I also have the blush which has a scent of fresh flowers. . The trick to dry shampoo is that you have too spray it within 30cm away from your hair and brush it out right away. If you don’t do this you will be left with a white residue. Brushing it out and spraying all over in a fast motion will help eliminate this problem. Also wetting your hair a bit and brushing it out can also help.
Batiste-Bastie Dry Shampoo
Batiste - Bare Dry Shampoo Clean & Light This is my favourite beauty product hands down. It’s effective, feels light, smells not too intense but nice, and is relatively cheap compared to other dry shampoos. I use this almost daily! Definitely recommend!!!
Batiste-Bare Dry Shampoo Clean & Light
My favorite dry shampoo
There’s not much to say here: this is a dry shampoo, and it works, and I plan to keep buying it. Batiste keeps it simple: this product is formulated to absorb excess oil between washes, while adding a little bit of volume. It doesn’t make any grand claims; it’s just a simple dry shampoo. A few months ago I finally decided to stop washing my hair every day—not only is it not great for your hair, but it’s also expensive because you’re using shampoo and conditioner every single day. I picked this up at TJ Maxx to use on the days I don’t wash my hair, and it’s done exactly what I need it to. While I’m currently washing my hair every other day, I plan to transition to once every third day because I know this product can keep my hair looking fresh in between. At $8.99 for around 7oz, this product is priced well for how well it performs. I plan to repurchase, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a dry shampoo.
Batiste-Cherry Dry Shampoo Fruity & Cheeky
Empty Fav Dry Shampoo
What it is: It’s a dry shampoo that quickly refreshes hair in between washes by removing oil and adding volume and texture. Who it is for: All hair types What does it feel like: Sprays on hair like a fine powder mist. Has a light cherry scent. My thoughts: I have been using this for years and i have repurchased multiple times. It does not weigh down my hair and although it seems like it leaves a white cast when you first spray, i just rub in the product real good and brush thoroughly and voila! Hair is refreshed indeed. I also like that this does not dry my ends like some i have tried. Such a great value at around $9 for 6.73 oz. Would definitely recommend!Batiste - Cherry Dry Shampoo Fruity & Cheeky

Batiste Dry Shampoo ⭐️⭐️⭐️
Ehhhhh— My feelings for this dry shampoo. It does do the trick... HOWEVER!!! It shows up white in your hair. My biggest pet peeve. It almost makes it look more dirty. On the pro side, it smells amazing and it does soak up all the oils. I would recommend for light blondes because of the light almost white residue it leaves!! Definitely try a tester or travel size before purchasing. Batiste - Bastie Dry Shampoo
Batiste-Bastie Dry Shampoo
Low/High 💰 Dry Shampoo
The Batiste dry shampoo is one that works well, it smells pleasant (comes in various scents also), it is affordable, and at most drugstores. The one pitfall for me is it leaves a weird powdery film even after rubbing it in. Some may say “yOu’Re UsInG tOo MuCH,” but I (admittedly) wash my hair once a week. So I have to start using dry shampoo by day 3 atleast. The buildup from this dry shampoo is not my fave. O can feel it and it weighs down my hair. Price point is around $9. Holy. Grail. Dry Shampoo. Amika’s Perk Up* is honestly everythingggg. I love the way it smells (Amika’s signature scent is amazing), it DOES NOT weigh down my hair 👏🏻, it works extremely well, no white cast. Also, really cute packaging 😝 It is $25 and while some may say that is too expensive for a dry shampoo. I disagree because I am paying for something that works well and ticks off all my boxes. *Product was gifted but I have since repurchased a backup Batiste - Original Dry Shampoo Clean & Classic amika: - Perk Up Talc-Free Dry Shampoo
