From updating your hair care arsenal with products, to keep your hair tamed, to replacing scissors with thinning shears, check out these tips to learn how to make thick hair thinner in no time. But before you get scissor happy on your mane read below our 5 tips to ensure you achieve the best results.
It may not look how you imagine
Depending on your hair type, you may think that thinning out your hair is the best option to achieve that perfect style. For example, if you have curly hair, you may always fantasize about what it’d be like to have straight hair. And if you have thick hair, you may be wishing you had thin hair instead. You know what it’s like, we always want what we can’t have. But thick hair has its own benefits too—you never have to worry about volume, and that’s something your thin-haired friends are likely totally envious of. That being said, sometimes thick hair can have the tendency to look a little too poufy, which may have you wishing for thinned out hair. But beware thinning out too much may make your hair damaged or misshaped.
It may become dirtier quicker
Thinner hair will also seem greasy/dirty quicker than thick hair. If you’re used to washing your hair often then this shouldnt be a problem for you but if and when you get your hair thinned out be prepared to wash your hair almost every other day. Thinner hair tends to be smoother and less porous than coarser hair types, so the oils sit visibly on top of the hair.
Styling will be different
Your current thick hair style may have natural volume and sit in a certain natural wave. You will probably be taking this for granted at the moment and will have to consider that if and when you get your hair thinned out you will have to rethink how you style every day. A thinner cut will result in a completely different style, even if you put your hair up in a bun - there will be much less of it. But this may not be the case for everyone, if your hair is incredibly thick and unruly, a little thinning out may make it easier to style. Hair that has been thinned dries quicker, and it is easier to style. Less product is used, and hair is quickly put into place with little effort.
It may alter your natural pattern
If you do have a natural wave pattern or certain volume then by thinning out your style will obviously alter this but thinning the ends of hair adds texture, which is ideal for most of today's popular styles. Textured hair is easier to style and lies better than hair that has been blunt cut.
Choose the best method
Thinning shears would be the best way to ensure you avoid damage, but razoring can cause your ends to look dry and frizzy. If your hair is over thinned, your hair can look thin on the ends and more bulky at the roots looking like you have thinned split ends. When done correctly, thinning creates volume when it is done close to the scalp. Short hairs close to the scalp tend to stand up, pushing the longer hairs up and away from the scalp. You can also ask for layers to help your hair look thinner and make it more manageable to style.
DIY PUMPKIN ENZYME MASK- EXFOLIATE & GLOW 🎃
You can make so many masks with pumpkin purée that are completely customizable to your skin care needs. I chose this specific mask for its exfoliating and nourishing properties. When done with the mask your skin will be hydrated and glowing. With continued use, dark spots will improve. Benefits: Pumpkin- “rich in enzymes, beta-carotene, amino acids, and antioxidants to fight the visible signs of aging” Honey- nourishes and improves blemished skin Glycolic acid- improves skins exfoliation rate providing an even skin tone and texture What you’ll need: 2 tbs pure pumpkin purée 1 tbs honey Few drops of a glycolic acid ( I used which has glycolic in it) To make: Put all ingredients in a dish and mix. Apply with a mask brush or clean hands. I wait until the mask dries up a bit (around 30 minutes) then wash off. 🎃This mask has a solid consistency. If you work quick it will not slide around the face. It smells just like pumpkin and if you want you could even add in some essential oils. 🎃I have combination, sensitive skin and have not noticed any sensitivities with this mask. I would recommend to those who are looking to lightly exfoliate and improve their skins texture. Or if you love pumpkin, you will love this mask! #CheriePartner

It's a lightweight gel eye eye cream made with: ✨Mulberry Root: helps improve the appearance of dark circles by brightening and evening out skin tone. ✨Ginseng: helps fight the appearance of wrinkles and helps give skin a more radiant and youthful appearance.

I used this on one of my dark spots to see if it really helps getting rid of hyperpigmentation and it truly does!! I have a whole post made for Ginseng and how it helps with many skin concerns.

Trending Skincare Super Ingredients
I’ll start out by telling you a bit about my skin; it’s sensitive and normal-dry depending on the season. I also have rosacea on my cheeks. I am always looking for skincare that hydrates, soothes, and doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin. I am 31 years old and have just recently started adding some anti-aging products into my routine, though I can thankfully say I don’t have many signs of aging yet🤞🏻 Today I’m going to tell you about some skincare “super ingredients” that you might have been hearing about because they have become very popular in the skincare world. Ashwaganda - ashwaganda is an ancient medicinal herb that is classified as an adaptogen, which means it can help your body manage stress. In skincare, and this YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream with Ashwagandha + Reishi in particular, it is said to help reduce visible signs of fatigue. This moisturizer is targeted for people with dry, sensitive, and reactive skin. ￼the texture of this is lovely, it’s not too heavy but feels incredibly hydrating on the skin. ￼it has very little to no smell, which I really appreciate ￼it definitely helps me with redness and dryness ￼I would for sure repurchase this Niacinamide - niacinimide is an essential nutrient that can help build proteins in the skin and lock in moisture to prevent environmental damage. The CAUDALIE - Vinoperfect Brightening Radiance Serum and CAUDALIE - Vinoperfect Brightening Moisturizer with Niacinamide both contain niacinimide and claim to even the skin tone and give the skin a glowing appearance. ￼the texture of both of these products is lightweight; the serum is a milky consistency and the moisturizer is a gel-cream. ￼I wish that the moisturizer was a little more hydrating; I can’t really use it once the weather gets cold because it’s just not hydrating enough for me ￼both of these products are quite strongly scented, some may find it overpowering ￼I feel like they both make a difference in the overall appearance of my skin. They definitely help to brighten and even out my skin. ￼I’m unsure if I would repurchase the moisturizer, but would repurchase the serum Retinol - retinol supports natural collagen production in the skin, nurtures the skin, and diminishes the look of fine lines and wrinkles. This FIRST AID BEAUTY - FAB Skin Lab Retinol Serum is said to be for beginner retinol users and for those with sensitive skin. There are different strengths of retinol and it is advised that you work your way up to a higher concentration as your skin adjusts. Retinol has a bit of a bad reputation in some ways because it is a very aggressive ingredient but when used properly, it can be extremely beneficial and effective. ￼the texture isn’t overly thick and it sinks into the skin quickly ￼unscented ￼too new to my routine to say if I’d repurchase yet #CheriePartner
Non-Texturizing Primer for Acne & Sensitive Skin
YAS! Finally! A primer I can actually use on my face without worrying about major breakouts, dryness, or added texture! Those who have larger pores this ones for you too! 😃😃 I didn’t want to rave or get happy about a product without using it for awhile and this is especially true of primers. Many primers on the market add to the creation of major breakouts, feel too heavy/sticky, enhance my skin texture, smell, or pill. I have been officially using this product for about a month EVERY time I use foundation and I can definitely say this is a winner! In the first photo you’ll see the texture of the PEACH & LILY - Skin Shield Blurring Primer and the after photo is with both foundation and primer on. I used IPSA’s Retexturizing Foundation for this photo. Since trying for a month, I have not experienced any major breakouts. Maybe one pimple here or there. It’s a definite upgrade from having your ENTIRE chin/jawline area breakout all at once every time I use a different primer with foundation. The consistency of the primer is very light and watery. According to Peach and Lily, it is made to protect against pollution, blue light, toxins, makeup, etc. This formula has ZERO silicones! Some silicones can clog your skin, causing breakouts. I’ve noticed that as it dries, it doesn’t feel like your skin gets forcefully tightened and dry. The formula is hydrating and dries like a mist- undetected and in a subtle manner. It adds a natural, second-skin glow to your foundation that you can see in the after photo. If your foundation is matte and you want it to stay that way, this formula shouldn’t drastically alter your foundation’s finish. Regardless it will help promote the longevity of your makeup. Tips for applying: You only need a small amount per facial part(forehead, cheeks, chin, nose). The amount I placed in the photo is literally the same amount I place on these areas of the face. Rub it in with clean hands after applying your skincare routine! For those of you who have slightly large pores, good news! I was happy to see this product not further increase my pore size! It actually minimized them. During the times where my acne is healing and there are dry patches, it actually helped moisturize the areas and didn’t increase texture(no extra bumps/creases showed). My foundation did last me over 8 hours when using this primer! I highly recommend this product, especially for those of you who have dry, acne-prone, and sensitive skin. If you have oily skin, try using this product with a bit of powder before applying your foundation to promote longevity. Happy Priming!

Over-Exfoliated Skin: What To Do NextOver-exfoliation has a plethora of symptoms, ranging from redness and inflammation, tightness of the skin, dryness and flakiness, irritation bumps, rashes, breakouts, and a stinging sensation. With the rise in popularity of at-home chemical exfoliation, it’s easier than ever before to take it a step too far. Everyone is trying out TikTok-famous products like The Ordinary’s AHA 30% and BHA 2% Peeling Solution without an understanding of how strong it really is. Chemical exfoliation is all the rage now, due to its ability to clear up acne, even out the skin tone, and give you a glowy look. But none of these things will happen if you don't exfoliate properly!Sep. 29
