Steps to Thicker Healthier Hair
Who doesn't want healthier, thicker, and stronger hair? From dousing our hair with every hair mask we’ve ever owned to popping multiple hair supplements, most of us are willing to do (or buy!) anything that will help us achieve celebrity worthy voluminous locks. We have outlined 5 simple steps to follow to achieve thick, full hair once and for all.
Achieving thicker and healthier hair isn't just about what you apply to it. It’s what you consume daily too so go ahead, eat that Avocado! A diet full of healthy fats is essential for thick and healthy hair. Our diet plays a role in how genes can get expressed so ensure you get plenty of good-quality protein and good fats like olive oil and Omega 3. We recommend foods such as salmon, avocados, nuts, vegetables, and fruit to get all the key nutrients needed for growing stronger hair.
Use the right products
Different hair types require specific products that cater to their exact needs. Those with fine hair should look for volume-building shampoo and conditioners to boost the appearance of thickness and add shine and for those with coarse hair, choose products that tame frizz and moisture. Shampoos and conditioners labeled volumizing or thickening usually contain fewer conditioning ingredients, so they don’t weigh hair down. Be aware of over washing your hair and wearing super tight hairstyles too!
Taking a multivitamin along with a hair supplement can make a big difference. Certain vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids are necessary for healthy hair follicle function and growth. Choose a supplement which is high in anti-inflammatory Omega 3 and horsetail and pumpkin seed extract or at least contains powerhouse ingredients such as a bioavailable variety of keratin to improve hair growth. Be patient: results can take three to six months—and you’ll need to keep taking it along with a healthy diet to maintain your new hair growth.
We know it can be hard to break up with your styling tools but if you truly want healthier hair, needs must!. Keeping hot tools at a minimum will lessen hair damage. If you can’t stay away from your favorite hot tools, it’s crucial to use a heat protectant spray and choose a styling tool that regulates heat and temperature evenly. If you are using heat then instead of blowing downward on your roots with your hair dryer, make sure you're getting the brush under your roots and lifting upward as you blow dry.
You’ve heard the saying, Fake it til’ you make it! When creating the illusion of thicker hair, use something lightweight that will plump the hair at the root without weighing hair down. To finish off a look use a thickening texture spray for even more added volume. Hair flat to the head always looks more thinner than hair that is lifted at the root. Dry shampoo is one of the beauty world's modern miracles, but it does more than just make your dirty mane appear clean. Simply spray a small amount along your roots and it will give you an instant boost of volume.
How to choose tinted moisturizer for your skin? ULTIMATE Guide!
Surely you have heard of tinted moisturizers, as they have been a revolution in the cosmetics market in recent years and have been popularized by many celebrities by the hand of great stylists and makeup artists. Color moisturizers arise from the need to combine in a single product the ability to moisturize and protect of a cream and the aesthetic possibility of giving a touch of color and correcting that makeup provides. Since its inception, there have been many different types of tinted moisturizers that have appeared on the market, but they all have a common purpose: the protection of the skin and bring beauty to the face. That said, when choosing a tinted moisturizer we must focus our attention mainly on the benefits it will bring to our skin. Hydration capacity Generally speaking, facial moisturizers are created with formulas that integrate different active ingredients that serve mainly three purposes: moisturize, nourish, and protect the dermis. In addition, depending on specific uses, they may be enriched with other ingredients or elements that provide them with additional properties that vary depending on the type of skin on which it is to be applied. This is going to be a determining factor when selecting one product or another, because depending on whether we have dry, sensitive skin or oily skin, the type of color moisturizer we will choose will have to meet the needs of that type of skin. Protection factor According to numerous dermatologists, the best antiaging is photoprotective, especially if it is for daily use. This is because one of the main factors of skin aging is ultraviolet rays (UV), as they are able to damage the elastin and collagen of the dermis, which favors the appearance of wrinkles, in addition to being able to cause the appearance of spots and other lesions. Color and luminosity If we are talking about the benefits of a tinted moisturizer, precisely color is an important part, one of the reasons for being of the moisturizer with color, was to adopt at the same time the characteristics of a moisturizer and provide the color and corrective capacity of makeup. Skin tone is a point to keep in mind when choosing our cream. Ideally, the cream tone is identical to the tone of our skin, so it is advisable to do tests to check it. The cheek area is the most appropriate area to do this type of test. Within the different types of color moisturizer that exist, we can meet BB Cream or CC Cream depending on their corrective capacity and other properties. The second photo is the difference between a bb cream and a foundation: As you can see, the bb cream, which is a sort of tinted moisturizer is far more natural than the foundation. I personally use the NYX bb cream. “bare with me”. I have dry skin and this is perfect for me. With this tinted moisturizer, this is the finished result that I get: a very lightweight yet radiant look that covers my imperfections.
Empty Bottle! 7 weeks after using The Ordinary ✨
The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% I started The Ordinary’s Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% serum with the goal of brightening dark circles and reducing hyperpigmentation, reducing redness and blotchiness, and reducing sebaceous cysts. I can say with confidence that I have met all these skincare goals whilst using this product for the past 7 weeks and I am thrilled that it worked for me as well as it did! I also noticed a bonus of having skin that is a lot more smooth on top of everything else (as seen in my before live picture). This is the only serum that I have used along with the rest of my skincare routine. My method of using this serum is to drop 3 droplets of serum onto my fingertips and apply all over my face after washing my face with toner, and then apply moisturizer afterwards. I have also gotten into a habit of applying extra product onto my neck as well and have noticed brightening and wrinkle reductions where I have creases on my neck! Make sure not to touch the dropper onto your skin, as the dirt and oils from your skin may contaminate the product that is already in the bottle. In an earlier post, I had mentioned that I did experience some purging during the beginning of using this product. I did break out a little and experienced redness and sensitivity all over my skin during the first week of using this product, but stuck it out despite my skepticisms. However, I’d suggest that if the redness and break outs are significantly worse than what you are normally used to, you may be having an allergic reaction to this product. I also did not notice any minimization or pore reduction, but I anticipate this for most products I use since genetically speaking, I have big pores and I don’t think any skincare product can help me with this. I do have to say that the sebum control around my nose has improved significantly and I don’t get as many whiteheads as I used to! I can not recommend this product enough to people who want to try this miracle HG product 🥰🥰. It is so worth it especially for the price it’s sold for!!! I’ve already bought a second bottle of 60ml and it will continue to be in my skincare routine from now on!

SuperStay foundation - Is it really?
MAYBELLINE - SuperStay 24H Full Coverage Liquid Foundation I have to say this is my first drugstore foundation. Not that I am a fan of luxury brand. I found most drugstore foundations dont have many shades that fits me well. I am really caus First thing first, I want to give this foundation a big thumb up. A drugstore foundation with a pump. I like the glass bottle as well. I used to be a big fan of Double Wear from Estee Lauder. It is a good foundation especially for combination whether dry or oily. However, I really have the design where is just a plain glass bottle. It is getting everywhere. This is also said to be a full-coverage foundation. The reason I try this brand is what it is stated “superstar”. I am a combination dry. I found many foundations oxidizes fast on me. Many foundations look good in the first few hours after application. And in the afternoon, my face look dull and cloudy which I really hate. I am always looking for a foundation that stays long till the end of the day. A lot of foundations cake on me especially around my nose. This foundations nails it! I normally wear make up 8 hours during work days and it keeps my face glow till the end of the day. It looks good with just one layer. My face looks very natural and I don’t feel like it emphasizes my pores as much. If I want more coverage for darks circles I would go with a second layer. I’ve read a lot of reviews online as well. Personally, I would give it a 5 star. As a drugstore foundation, it really fulfills all my needs. It spreads out easily and blends out nice whether with bare hand or sponge. Be aware that if you are using a brush and working with matte finish foundations like this, you gonna blend super fast before it dries. This foundation is not super matte, it is more of a soft matte finish. When it dries down, it is not as liquid as before. It feels more like a mousse texture. It covers the pores around my T-area completely and my skin looks smooth and healthy. And the coverage is really good for that fact I can rarely see my freckles where I have most pigmentation on my skin. A little touch of this goes a long way. As a soft matte, full coverage foundation, it is not caky at all. It looks so smooth and natural. This foundation to be honest has totally changed my mind of drugstore foundations ( or maybe it just Maybelline is doing a fantastic job). Big thumb up and highly recommended you girls to give it a try!
