Damaged hair is a problem for so many of us – and the cause can be anything from using too many heated appliances or an overload of bleach to living in a place with a dry climate. But whatever’s behind your broken strands, don’t worry! Luckily, there are hundreds of hair care products out there formulated especially to repair them as quickly as possible. Some brands have really gone the extra mile, with a few in particular coming out on top.
OLAPLEX
OLAPLEX is a hair care brand that used to only be available in salons, but, thankfully for us, it’s now available online. It’s a line dedicated to creating formulas that seek out broken bonds in the hair and repair them – sounds ideal, right? Even better, all OLAPLEX products contain a patented ingredient that works on a molecular level – and hair stylists and celebrities around the world swear by it. The company’s best-selling product is the OLAPLEX No 3 Hair Perfector, which is used as a pre-shampoo treatment (or a leave-in, overnight treatment for more severe cases) once a week. It repairs, restores, and renews your hair without coating it in a greasy film, as well as strengthening and protecting it from further damage. Another product, the No. 7 Bonding Oil, is ideal for use with the Hair Perfector for maximum damage-control.
SheaMoisture
SheaMoisture prides itself on using the best natural ingredients selected carefully from around the world, as well as organic production processes to produce a line of sustainable hair care products. All the formulas are inspired by the founders’ grandmother, who first began selling shea butter-based products in 1912 at a market in Sierra Leone. Luckily, the company has a number of products specifically formulated to treat damaged hair, with one of the bestsellers being the Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque. Enriched with raw shea butter, olive oil, castor seed oil, and other natural botanicals, this all-over hair conditioner helps to repair broken strands of hair as well as protecting them from additional damage in future. The Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Styling Lotion is another best-selling product that combines shea butter with black castor oil to protect hair strands and follicles while restoring moisture to damaged hair.
Bumble and Bumble
Bumble and Bumble was founded in New York City back in the 1970s but has since become a huge international brand with a cult-like following – and guess what? They have a whole product line dedicated to repairing damaged hair! The Mending Range has some fantastic products in it, but there are a couple of bestsellers that particularly stand out. The rich but lightweight Save the Day Daytime Protective Repair Fluid is a concentrate that’s infused with nourishing oils such as camelia oil, as well as UV filters, to help repair past damage and protect against future damage. If your hair’s really in need of some TLC, you can pair it with the While You Sleep Damaging Repair Masque, which is a heavier blend of similar ingredients that should be left in overnight once or twice a week.
Pureology
Pureology started California in 2001 with a simple but powerful idea: to create the very best 100% vegan products for color-treated hair. Now, as you probably know all too well by now, color-treated hair is often damaged hair, as it doesn’t take too long for all the harsh chemicals to have a negative effect on your locks – so Pureology offer multiple products to help repair, restore, and rejuvenate. The Strength Cure Shampoo is one of Pureology’s bestsellers, and it’s not hard to see why. With a blend of key ingredients such as astaxanthin and keravis, as well as raspberry, water flowers, and peach, it helps to fortify and repair damaged hair. Team this with the conditioner, and you should notice a difference fairly quickly. For extra TLC, try the Strength Cure Miracle Filler, which is daily blow-dry reparative lotion containing key ingredients such as coriander oil, xylose, and camomile that help to strengthen, repair and protect hair strands and cuticles.

Thank you guys!
Thank you guys!
Yesterday I received my leaderboard prize for being in the top 3 and I got to use it tonight!!!! First I just want to say I am just so thankful 🤗 to all of my followers and supporters for cheering me on. I am crazy overwhelmed (in a good way) with all the love ❤️ I have received since being a part of this community. Not to mention I am so close to 6k Followers and I just can believe it!! I have been such a hermit for a while, I was not even an avid social media user. I decided to start doing little things for my self with skincare and makeup, then one day I stumbled across Cherie and things just changed. I went from just cheering and saving posts that interested me, to my first post, to a large following and actual friends. This was all so unexpected and a such a blessing. I found myself again aside from being a mother and wife. I found self love and began a much needed journey of self care. Also thank you Cherie!! This app has given me a lot of joy. The support you guys give is amazing! Just being on the leaderboard was such an honor and now there are gifts! You guys rock! Thank you again! This oils is so lush! HERBIVORE - Emerald CBD + Adaptogens Deep Moisture Glow Oil I just love the packaging, I don’t know if I will throw the box away!❤️ The glass bottle and beautiful green/blue oil are gorgeous. It has a very Earthy scent to it, but it is not over powering and fades quickly. Also a little goes a long way, I only used like 3 drops before my moisturizer. The feel on my skin reminds my of my Sunday Riley night oil, but not as heavy. My skin felt nice and moisturized with a nice glow. Contains hemp-derived Cannabis sativa seed + adaptogenic herbs to soothe, hydrate, and gives a nice glow. This product is high in moisture making it Perfect for the coming dry months. Contains mushrooms and turmeric to defend skin against the environment and reduce wrinkles. At $48 this could possibly replace my Sunday Riley oil....because that stuff is super expensive!!! I love it but my wallet doesn’t! However this Emerald oil it a great replacement honestly and it’s not as heavy an oil. There is not a huge difference in the heaviness but it is noticeable to me. I also like how the scent fades, the Luna oil does not. Really a wonderful prize! Thank you !🙏🥰 ❤️Cherie Creator
Create A Subtle Cat Eye Using Lash Extensions💕
Create A Subtle Cat Eye Using Lash Extensions💕
This post is dedicated to those of you who don’t want or can’t use a lash strip! If you have a subtle eyeshadow look, a great way to enhance your natural eyeshape is to use individual lash extensions! It’ll give you that your lash but better look and create a charming “atmosphere” around the eye. You don’t have to be a lash artist to do it. All you need is some classic lash glue and individual lashes from a place like LASHIFY - AMPLIFY GOSSAMER LASHES For this eyelook, I created a Demi lash towards the outer corner. A Demi lash is essentially a lash that is about 1/3rd long of a normal strip lash. Starting for the end of the outer corner I used three individual lashes beginning with a 14mm size at the outermost corner. Next would be a 12mm and a finally a 10mm. You can see the difference it makes in the first photo vs the second. In the second photo, I just have mascara, whereas the first photo I have the 3 individual lashes! Tips: 1. Curl and put on your mascara BEFORE you put on the individual lashes. The mascara will provide a sturdy base for the individual lashes to attach to. 2. Use a tweezer to assist with your application and attach the lash to your lash line. DO NOT put it directly on the waterline because this will cause irritation. You do want to be close to it though! 3. I use the lash glue from house of lashes. It’s comfortable and not clumpy. Place the glue on the individual lash like you would normally would on a strip lash. You only need A LITTLE bit of glue. Placing too much will cause difficulty in sticking and it’ll get all over your lashes. Another glue you could use or try is the DUO - DUO Brush-on Adhesive Enjoy your flirty “natural” lashes 💕😄
NEW 🚨 Anti-Irritation CBD Lip Balm 🍃
NEW 🚨 Anti-Irritation CBD Lip Balm 🍃
Kosas partnered with a brand called Flora + Bast, which sources pure, unprocessed CBD products for skincare and wellness. Together, they made this lip balm. It gives you a lot of ingredients for the cost, and is great for dry, acne-prone skin. I would recommend it the most for people who do sports, or in Fall/Winter weather. 🌿 INGREDIENT BREAKDOWN 🌿 MAIN : Full Spectrum Cannabis Extract 50 mg Full Spectrum cannabis is the unprocessed version of CBD. It keeps all it’s aspects and nutrients, including THC (but less than 0.03%, so it won’t make you high). Research shows that CBD reduces sebum production and soothes irritation- making it ideal to control acne and redness. Our bodies naturally produce a cannabinoid called anandamide- without it, you have dry, irritated skin. CBD naturally helps replenish that. 50mg is potent for a lip balm. Some balms have 10 mg, so this is definitely not cheating you on ingredients. For other parts of your skin, CBD recommendations can go as high as 350 mg to treat pain. So 50 mg is a good range for the thin, sensitive skin on your lips. Hyalauronic Acid A natural limp plumper that’s naturally derived from sugar- So it’s super unlikely to cause a reaction. We have HA naturally in our connective tissue. It keeps us lubricated, and it can bind ~1000 times its weight in water. What this means for your lips is that it’ll hold onto hydration, making them look plumper. Konjac Root This pairs perfectly with HA. It has glucomannan, which holds ~50 times its weight in water. It’s turns the balm texture into a gel, and is antimicrobial. Together with HA, they have a plumping, anti-wrinkling effect. Extra Ingredients Boy this little balm is packed! Here’s just a few more moisturizers it contains: castor seed oil, jojoba esters , grape seed oil, avocado oil, mango seed butter, rice bran extract, etc. 💕 APPLICATION 💕 My lips are prone to flaking because of harsh acne medication. They also get easily red and irritated. This balm is advertised as creamy and soothing. When I apply it, it goes on thick- but doesn’t look thick. It has a natural-ish finish that leans glossy. It feels perfect for winter because it’s so creamy. And it feels a little minty- Which I found really relaxing. The product didn’t just sit on my lips- After hours, it felt like it had absorbed its moisture. The texture reminds me of theNeutrogena - Lip Moisturizer with Sunscreen SPF 15 ($2.99 for 0.15 oz). But that product has a much shorter ingredient, with castor oil as its main moisturizer. Kosas product ($20 for 0.17) is priced higher, but it’s worth it for all the extra ingredients you get. If you have sensitive lip concerns, this product is worth checking out. Its slim packaging makes it easy to slip into your bag, and it’ll keep chapping under control.

I’ve been asked multiple times by my awesome TikTok community to do a makeup look inspired by the popular video game, Among Us. I wanted to create an avant-garde version of their intro screen and promo posters, where the lil astronauts were all in space. Then I added all the colors mixed into a rectangular block on my face to match how the characters look. Being inspired by something popular doesn’t mean you have to give up on your aesthetic ❤️ If you want to see how I applied everything, check out my tiktok tutorial @cindychendesigns!

Mermaid Polish🧜‍♀️ Same Brand Dupe?
Mermaid Polish🧜‍♀️ Same Brand Dupe?
Sally Hansen - Color Therapy Nail Polish Sally Hansen - Insta-Dri X Jelly Belly Nail Polish Similarities: - Both are from Sally Hansen which is famous for their polishes and nail products - Both have two-color tones - Both have blue base Differences - Sally Hansen Salon Manicure has 14.7ml (0.5 oz) comparing to Sally Hansen insta-dry Matte 9.17 ml (0.3 oz) - Salon Manicure is $15 CAD vs Insta-dry Matte $8 CAD (almost double the other) - The Salon Manicure does appear to be more hollow, when actually apply it, you can tell that this one is super jampacked with holo pigment - After two layers, the salon manicure series is perfect set and ready to finish ( actually one layer is good enough, if you do want extra hallow pigment, you can go with a second layer) but the insta-dry matte series, it is not as clear as the other, and you actually need a third layer to get the perfect finish. - The formula is thicker in Salon Manicure, but the consistency is very good and fluid. And it doesnt dragging the brush. It floats super nicely across the nail. - My opinion - I personally really love the Salon Manicure. Although both polish are from Sally Hansen, this one definitely wins over the other in every area. I love the fact that you can see the formula is a two-toned color, you can actually see the color shifting when turning it into different angles. And it appears the same on your nails. It has a perfect combination of blue and purple with purple pearl shimmer to keep the nail going strong.
