How To Detangle Hair Without Damaging It
I have fine medium length wavy hair. I have been really focusing on trying to grow it longer. The key to growing it longer is keeping it from getting damaged. My hair tangles very easily after washing it and when I sleep on it. With trial and error with all types of products and tools, I discovered my go steps to less damage and detangling the right way. I purchased the Wet brush that is meant for detangling hair. I never realized that brushing my hair with the incorrect brush when my hair is wet or dry can really do damage over time. This brush was really life changing for my hair. I use it on my wet hair once I am out of the shower or even sometimes in the shower after conditioning. The bristles are really soft and when you use it, it doesn’t pull at your hair at all. I start from the bottom of my hair and work my way up. I have noticed I was losing a lot less hair when I started using this. It is worth trying to prevent further damage in the future. I will not go without it. There is also a product I will use while brushing my hair wet that helps with any knots. It is the Dry Bar Prep Rally, Prime and prep detangler. This product has definitely been a game changer with my hair. Not only does it help with any tangles, it also is heat protectant. So, when you use any hot tools, blow dryer, straightener, or curling iron it will help protect your hair from any damage. I will apply only when my hair is wet all over. This is something I will not go without after washing my hair. I lose less hair and after blowing drying it leaves it soft and smooth and smelling amazing.
The Best & The Blah - Hair Products @ Sephora
My hair is long, fine, and blonde naturally but has also been bleached and colour treated for years. So with it being fine, that means it’s extra delicate and I have to make a special effort to take good care of it in order to prevent breakage/damage. I do a lot of shopping at Sephora (more than I’d like to admit) and have tried my fair share of brands and products when it comes to hair care. While I will say that most of my hair care favourites are NOT from Sephora (they’re from the salon), I’m here to showcase some of my faves products and some that are just meh...here we go! 1. BLAHBriogeo - Apple Superfoods Shampoo & Conditioner Hair Pack ($35/bottle CAN) - I like the light scent and I feel it does a decent job overall, but it’s not my favourite and I don’t feel it’s worth the price because it’s very basic. 2. BESTOUAI - OUAI Leave-In Conditioner (Full Size $34 CAN, this is a deluxe sample) - I use a leave-in every single time I wash my hair because my hair is long and fine and gets tangled so easily, so leave-in helps to combat that. I will definitely be purchasing the full size of this! 3. BLAHOUAI - Detox Shampoo ($39 CAN) - I find that this does cleanse my hair decently well but definitely doesn’t deep cleanse the way some other detox/clarifying shampoos I’ve used have. I was hoping it would be a bit more clarifying than it is, but I’m also glad it’s not super harsh or stripping. 4. BLAHdrybar - Hot Toddy Heat Protectant Mist (Full Size $36 CAN, this is a sample) - this is a basic heat protectant and you can definitely find something just as good, if not better, for much cheaper. Overall, would not recommend this one and it’s very strongly scented. 5. BLAH drybar - Prep Rally Prime & Prep Detangler ($32 CAN) - this one is definitely meh...I’m not entirely sure it does anything at all. It’s very lightweight and doesn’t provide any hydration, it might be better suited for hair that gets greasy easily🤷🏼♀️ 6. BLAHVERB - Sea Texture Spray (Full Size $20 CAN, this was in a set) - honestly, I don’t really love very many aerosol texture sprays. I find that they don’t really do much for my hair, but I keep trying them because I really want to find a good one😆 7. BEST VERB - VERB Dry Shampoo ($20 CAN) - this stuff is BOMB! I got it in a set and have been loving it. I love that it’s not aerosol and it does an amazing job at absorbing oil and giving the hair volume and texture. Highly recommend! 8. BESTVERB - Ghost Oil ($20 CAN) - I cant believe I waited so long to try this! It’s lightweight but hydrating and is great at combating static and frizz - it doesn’t make my hair feel greasy or weighed down at all! #CheriePartner
Get Smooth and Voluminous Natural Curls
A good diffuser has leveled up my curly girl game. I got the drybar - Buttercup Blow Dryer on sale during Christmas. While it’s the nicest hair dryer i’ve owned and it works well, it’s extremely heavy and my arms get so tired diffusing on low/no heat. Because it takes me about an hour to diffuse my hair (I have a lot), something that is equally professional and lightweight is very important to me. I prefer a mix of hover and pixie diffusing, and the drybar - The Bouncer Diffuser works well for both of these. I love the wide mouth, it fits all my curls in very easily. However, a star has also been knocked off for the weight of the product as is makes the end of the blow drier even heavier. I start upside down after plopping, hovering all over my head in sections, taking extra time on the more porous areas that take longer to dry. After it’s about 30% dry, I switch to pixie diffusing, side to side and right side up until almost dry. Do this carefully so as not to encourage frizz!Flip upside down and fluff roots, and done! I finish with OLAPLEX - No. 6 Bond Smoother Reparative Styling Creme to tame any fly-aways and add shine. No cons to this product, it smells heavenly and works great— not heavy or greasy. Overall, these two products are durable and professional I will gladly continue to use them. However, I wish I would have gotten the travel size rather than full size blowdryer to make it easier and not so much of an arm workout diffusing my curls.
High end VS Drugstore Hairdryer
I have thin hair. For years I've been using a normal, ordinary standard hair dryer that I had picked up from Walmart in my freshman year. I didn't noticed a different until i met my roommate who have gorgeous voluminous shinny hair who used a $100+ dryer. My old cheap blow dryers were frying my hair. Thats when I started to do some researches about dryers. It's hard to believe a hair dryer could make a big difference but this one absolutely DOES.Thats when I decided to invest for a good hair dryer. Finding the right blow dryer can make styling your hair a lot easier and more manageable. drybar - Buttercup Blow Dryer This brand might not be familiar to most of you. It is a salon level high end blowdryer with ionic technology that seals the cuticle to reduce frizz while drying. My hair is long and it takes a long time to dry. This cut my drying time in half. My hair was also a lot less frizzy. This is by far my dream dryer. It is quiet, dries quickly, feels nice in the hand, long cord. Basically, everything you need in a dryer. I know there are tons of different brands that you have never heard of but strongly recommended by hair stylists and you are hesitant to try. All you want is a familiar brand name you can trust. Here is an option for you - Revlon's Perfect Heat blow dryer. REVLON - 1875W Perfect Heat Smooth Brilliance Ac Motor Dryer It is good for straightening your hair and w the wide fish eye applicator can be used to have freshly natural looking waves or curls. What more?” and it comes at a super reasonable price point These are my reviews of blowdryers. It is up to you to find your favorite hair dryer based on your budget. Let me know what’s your opinion.

Nothing blends better
I got this in one of the sample kits I bought. I usually don’t like dry shampoo because no matter what I always see a white hue even though I brush it in like crazy. So when I tried this I was so shocked how easily it blended in 🙌🏼 it smells amazing. I found a full size at Nordstrom for 14.99. It more expensive at Ulta and online 😬 If your looking for a dry shampoo that smells great, is easy to brush through, and blends well, then your search is over :) KEY INGREDIENTS ￼￼Micro-fine Rice Powders -absorb excess oils and odors. As they absorb, they become translucent to naturally blend with all hair colors and expand to provide lift in the roots. ￼￼Golden Root Extract -increases moisture to prevent dryness and breakage. SCENT ￼￼Lush scent with notes of violet, sandalwood and musk HOW TO USE Shake extremely well. Spray into roots 4-6'' (10-15cm) away from the scalp. Allow to dry, gently rub in and brush through.
Dry Bar- Worth the hype? Pt. 2
drybar - Detox Dry Shampoo Lush Scent I had some rewards to spend at Ulta and wanted to try something new, I liked the smell of my other Dry Bar product. I had been to a dry bar “salon” with my sister and thought that the employees there did good work and I thought their products must be great, but I was wrong to think all of that. Pros: ￼This is a dry shampoo, it does take some the oil out of your hair ￼Works best if you allow it to sit overnight Cons: ￼This product is your classic dry shampoo, it leave a white powder in your hair ￼It stinks! I though lush would be their classic scent but it is just completely overpowering ￼I just would not recommend this product, it doesn’t not do enough for a $$ product. Conclusion: Dry Bar is not worth the hype. Better Alternatives: ￼R+Co - Death Valley Dry Shampoo ￼NOT YOUR MOTHER'S - Beach Babe Texturizing Dry Shampoo
Dry shampoo: prevent dandruff/dry scalp! ✨
drybar - Double Dose of Detox Dry Shampoo A sample I got and keep handy on me I usually buy the ouai dry shampoo but hate carrying my full size so I have this sample trial size in my purse or car I normally stay away from dry shampoo But for days I straightened my hair and want to keep the look another day I spritz a little and comb out with my purse comb TANGLE TEEZER - Compact Styler Hairbrush Is a great hygienic comb you can keep on hand or in your car I only comb my hair right after the shower or when I straighten it since my hair is on the frizzy side You must brush the dry shampoo through the hair or you will cause build up by the scalp Which can then lead to dandruff ,the true reason I stay away from dry shampoo I refuse to have a dry scalp now this does not mean don’t use dry shampoo just make sure to brush it out and not just with your fingers

Favorite Texturizing Spray!
This is the Drybar Triple Sec texturizing spray. This is one of my all time favorite hair products! I use this every time I have waves or curls in my hair. This doubles as a texturizing spray a hair spray and a dry shampoo all at the same time. If gives you super cute piecey waves as well as creating a strong hold in your hair for long lasting curls. And did I mention it smells amazing? I highly recommend this. It retails around $26 which is affordable for the size of the bottle! I highly recommend.

It’s not only safe for chemically treated/damaged hair...it actually strengthens it!

Hydrating SHOTZ SHOTZ SHOTZ SHOTZZZZ
When I read Cherie’s post for remedies of damaged hair, I got soooooo excited! I am lucky enough to have healthy hair, however there was a period of time where my hair was dry, itchy, and over all blehhhhh. This is one of the products that give my hair the burst of energy that it deserves! It moisturizes and deep conditions your hair. And it’s super easy to use! It comes with a spray nozzles and you spray it through your hair. A secret tip: keep running it through your hair and rinse in your hand then, put it back on your hair. And just keep doing that until your hair is 100% conditioned. The ONLY reason this doesn’t have a 5 star, is because the price is a tad steep for such a small bottle. BUT it comes with 4 bottles! 9 out of 10 drybar - Bay Breeze Hydrating Shots
