✨ Quick 5 Min Curls ✨
I’m usually in a rush in the mornings and skip doing my hair lol. I’ve seen this easy hack everywhere and have been loving it!!! I feel so put together and like a boss whenever I do my hair lol makes me feel like I can accomplish anything! It literally is the quickest way to get curls in your hair! . 1) Put your hair in a ponytail in the middle of your head. invisibobble - The Traceless Hair Ring Original Crystal Clear has the perfect grip and never gets caught in my hair or pulls any hair out! It is so painless and if I’ve styled my hair and use this to put it up in a ponytail, it doesn’t make a crease! They do get loose after a little bit, so I have a few that I switch around and use one a day, then use another one another day, and so on so that each one can go back to its original shape. I’ve also tried heating up water in the microwave in a coffee mug and then drop these in there and they go back to their original shape! 2) Take a small section of the ponytail and wrap it around the curling wand. Repeat until you’ve done your entire ponytail. CONAIR - InfinitiPro by Tourmaline Ceramic Curling Wand is a great curling wand! Picked this up at Walgreens on sale whenever I was in high school years ago and it still works amazing! It’s really easy to use, heats up in ~30 seconds, the curls last for a couple days, and has lasted a long time! It’s normally only like $30 so it’s rather budget friendly for a heating tool and works so well! 3) Take the ponytail out (this is what mine looked like immediately after removing the ponytail). Some pieces in the front or underside might need a separate curl, I curled the two front pieces. 4) Use a leave-in conditioner or styling cream to make sure the style lasts all day and doesn’t fall. You might want to use hairspray if you really want it to last! I make sure to really work the product through my hair and it gives me some volume. ALTERNA - CAVIAR Anti-Aging Replenishing Moisture CC Cream is a good leave in cream, but it’s just the one I have open currently. It isn’t something I’d go out and purchase because it’s rather expensive. There are other cheaper alternatives that are just as good, if not better performing than this. But it does work well on wet and dry hair, prevents frizz, smells nice, and locks in the style. . #CheriePartner

The Leave In that rescued my damaged hair
My hair issues: Although I like my thick hair, my dry scalp and seborrhaic dermatitis constantly frustrates me especially I have dark hair. I also had my hair bleached and color treated for highlights 6 months ago, making it thoroughly frizzy and overall lifeless. About the product: ALTERNA - CAVIAR Anti-Aging Replenishing Moisture CC Cream is A leave in hair treatment and styling cream that provides 10 benefits in just one single step. It claims to provide moisture, shine, keep hair soft, strong and smooth, and protect from heat and UV damage It has a light cream consistency with a subtle scent (couldn’t pinpoint it but I like it) and it doesn’t linger after it my hair dries out. It doesn’t feel sticky on my hair but it feels that my hair was weighted down after styling my hair using this. How I use it: I massage it on my damp hair (washed or not), then blow dry it to style. Easy peasy! My experience: I ❤️ ❤️ how my hair feels after using this product. I have reaped all the benefits this product claims to provide. But like I said, I feel like my hair was weighted down after using this. I had to use other products to achieve the style that I am going for. Still a solid product on its own! 😊

👩🏼Blonde hair YAYS N NAYS👩🏼‍🦳
My hair is naturally black and straight, but I’ve had it processed over the years to be a silvery-blonde color that I maintain with blonde hair care products. As my hair is damaged, dry, and needs color toning products, I am very picky about what I use. Here are some YAYS and NAYS that I’ve picked up from Sephora. YAYS IGK - Mixed Feelings Blonde Essentials Set ($21.50 and worth $44) Okay fam, if you can, get this set! It’s got a full sized IGK - Mixed Feelings Purple Leave-In Blonde Toning Drops ($29) that you can add to any product to help tone the brassiness out of your hair and I absolutely adore it. I mix it with my post shower hair oil and with IGK - Mistress Hydrating Hair Balm ($15) to create leave-in products that are blonde friendly. Such a good price for effective products YAY KÉRASTASE - Blond Absolu Anti-Brass Purple Shampoo KÉRASTASE - Blond Absolu Strengthening Conditioner This violet pigmented shampoo and conditioner are a perfect pair for keeping brassiness out of my hair. I liked the sample set I got so much that I’m going to splurge and buy the full size ($35 for 250 mL shampoo, $40 for 250 mL conditioner). I leave the shampoo on my hair for about five minutes to let it sink in, and no, I don’t leave the water on. The shampoo tones and hydrates and conditioner makes my hair smooooth and shiny. My only issue with it is the mega price tag, especially when Matrix and Joico make a similar and less expensive product. NAY ALTERNA - CAVIAR Anti-Aging Replenishing Moisture Conditioner ALTERNA - CAVIAR Anti-Aging Replenishing Moisture Shampoo ($34 for 250 mL each) So, I thought this was a blonde friendly product because of the purple packaging… my mistake.I have SO many issues with this product, and the ingredients are the biggest issue. It uses CAVIAR EXTRACT Like the fish eggs. I wish I had read that before trying this out, because I try to only use vegan products and this IS NOT IT. It also contains seasilk which is supposed to protect your hair from heat damage. This shampoo and conditioner is also supposed to be anti-aging for hair, which is not a good way to sell it, as hair is already dead cells. Damage prevention is a better tagline, but my hair didn’t feel any lighter or nicer after these products.

Alterna Fall Rituals package with Replenishing Moisture Shampoo, Conditioner, Restructuring Bond Repair Leave-In Overnight Serum and Restructuring Bond Repair Masque and I could not be more excited, because I truly love their products (used them few years ago). They moisturize and replenish hair, make it shiny and straight. And I love concept of overnight serum, when you apply it in the evening for a whole night and then wash your hair as usual in the morning. It always saves me time, especially when I am in harry:) I will update with long-term results, but as for now I am in love with all of these products.

✨ Wavy Hair Care ✨
I have wavy hair that I color, so my typical concerns are repair and frizz! Here are some products I use to take care of my hair! . I typically wash my hair every 2-4 days, depending what type of activities I’ve done (exercised or went out to the grocery store or just sat at home and worked on schoolwork). I haven’t found a good dry shampoo yet that works with my hair. Once a week, I use a scalp scrub to make sure I get all the products out I’ve used for the week and give it a fresh start. I also use a hair mask once or twice a week to further nourish my hair and help it stay healthy. I typically only put some frizz cream or spray into my hair after I wash it and then let it air dry and wear it down or in a ponytail or bun most days. . Zion Health - Deep Cleansing Scalp & Hair Scrub Pear Blossom With Sea Salt Key Ingredients: Sea salt (exfoliates and cleanses), argan oil (protects against damage), and aloe (soothes). Scent: Pear, with a hint of floral Consistency/Texture: Gritty scrub-like texture Price: $19.99 for 4 oz / 113 g Experience: The perfect amount of grittiness to scrub the scalp, but isn’t too harsh. The scent is nice, but doesn’t last long on the hair. I use this after I shampoo once a week and notice that my hair doesn’t get as oily anymore and has more shine because there isn’t as much product buildup. I was sent this by the company. . JOICO - K-Pak Color Therapy Luster Lock Instant Shine and Repair Treatment Key Ingredients: African Manketti Oil (protects color from fading), keratin (repairs damage), and argal oil (deeply hydrated and nourishes hair). Scent: Floral Consistency/Texture: Cream Price: $21.99 for 4.7 fl oz / 140 mL Experience: I bought the full size of this last fall when it was half off at Ulta during their hair event. It helps keep my color from fading as quickly and definitely has helped keep my hair nourished. I use this a few times a week and it keeps my hair sleek, soft, and it doesn’t break as often. It doesn’t weigh my hair down or leave my hair feeling or looking greasy. . ALTERNA - Caviar Anti-Aging Smoothing Anti-Frizz Blowout Butter Key Ingredients: Pure Caviar extract (helps with manageability, breakage, dryness, and dullness), and a blend of Abyssinian, Camellia, and Avocado Oils (condition and smooth the hair, restoring its strength and luster). Scent: Floral Consistency/Texture: Cream Price: $34 for 5.1 oz / 150 mL Experience: I don’t blow dry my hair often (make a couple times a year), which this is used for to help reduce dry time, but as a frizz cream. It really helps my hair air dry and not be as frizzy! I just apply it from the mid-length of my hair to the ends. It can make your hair look and feel greasy if you apply it too close to the roots. It works great even in the humid Texas heat! Whenever I have used it before blow drying my hair, it definitely reduced the amount of time it took to blow dry it. You only need the smallest amount, so worth the price.

Best Hair Product Ever
Best Hair Product Ever
I absolutely love this heat protectant! It does a great job protecting your hair from heat damaging it. I use a flat iron or curling iron daily, and my hair looks incredible when using it. It’s not a heavy product, and it makes my hair very soft and look great. I love the smell too. It’s pricey, but I think it’s worth it.

Loving the silkiness this gives my hair
Loving the silkiness this gives my hair
This has become one of my absolute favorite leave in conditioners. My hair can be unruly at times and this is just the product I needed to tame my hair and give volume. The smell ~ Amazing. I will soon need a second bottle of this as I do not want to run out. I especially love to use this when I wear my hair in a high pony tail or messy bun. Ladies, treat yourself to this wonderful leave in conditioner. Also great for those beautiful beach waves.ALTERNA - Caviar Anti-Aging Replenishing Leave-in Conditioning Milk

Love the smell of this shampoo and conditioner
This stuff smells so good and it’s super lightweight. The conditioner actually feels like it’s conditioning my hair and allows me to run my fingers through it while in the shower. The scent doesn’t overpower your hair long after your shower so you can style it with whatever scented products you normally use.
