Frizzy, undefined waves! The damage here...
While I'm working on improving my natural waves (stay tuned for that journey!) I wanted easy fixes to frizz-free waves; namely, I want to spend minimal time and damage on my hair, but I want it to look GORGEOUS. No compromises! So I put three techniques to the test...1) Sock Curls, As Seen On Tik Tok

If you've seen these sock curls on Tik Tok and have yet to try it, consider this your sign to give it a shot! This is so incredibly easy to acheive; you essentially wrap two strands of hair around a long pair of socks. Prep your slightly damp hair with your favorite leave in conditioner, wrap them around the socks, and once they are dry enough, release them. It took my hair about 5 hours to dry fully, so I strongly I suggest this technique to be done overnight. It also yields a super casual look, more suited for daytime. Pros: - So easy to do - No heat curls Cons: - Not a lot of volume - If you have long hair like me, you'll have waves rather than curls - Socks droop and misplace throughout the day HOW TO:2) Two-Strand Milkmaid Braid

This simplified take on a French braid gives you soft, bouncy waves with no heat! Now, even if you don't know how to French braid, this two-strand version of it is SO easy—the only thing is, the braid doesn't stay so you'll have to secure it in the little bun, as you can see above. Pros: - EASY EASY EASY EASY - No heat - Comfortable to sleep in Cons: - Not a lot of volume (but way better than the socks) - Hard to secure braidHOW TO:3) A Hot Waver

Now, I wanted to impart the most minimal damage to my hair when trying these wave techniques, so trying out an actual heated tool left me a bit skeptical. Luckily, Insert Name Here's new hair waver is coated in a tourmaline ceramic glaze which means it keeps damage to a minimum and is gentle on your hair. Using a waver is great for instant styling, and also yields much more cohesive look. You can easily rock these waves day or night. Pros: - Instant waves; no need to wait hours or overnight - Super easy to do Cons: - Arm gets TIRED - Heat damage, though minimal - Smell of "hot" hair (personally not a fan)HOW TO:

And the superior method is.....Two strand milkmaid braid! To be honest, a lot of my results were pretty much the same! I just like how easy the milkmaid braid is; it took the least time and gave me my favorite results. It's definitely something I can do every time I wash my hair to wake up with tamed tresses.

are pore bubbling masks worth it? 🧼🛁💬
are pore bubbling masks worth it? 🧼🛁💬
since COVID has started, I know many people are on new (or refining old) skincare journeys and I’ve recently been experiencing some dryness/dehydrating as the winter rolls around, which also aggravates my already oily skin. I’ve worked in the beauty industry for a while and also was formerly an esthetician, so I can get picky with skincare and ingredients. ‼️for reference, my skin type is: combo (oily/dehydrated), formerly acneic, hyperpigmentation prone, and sensitive 🔬I’ve used Dr. Jart in the past and love that it’s a Korean, science-backed brand so I was stoked to try this Porecting Solution Mask! this mask promises fresh, clear glowing skin that deeply cleanses and purifies pores. the mask contains charcoal and saponine, which creates the bubbling effect you see in the above photo. this product does not contain sulfates, paragons, are phthalates. 🛁when I first took it out of its package, I thought there were *two* masks per package instead of one, but if you read the instructions, there’s actually a “mask film” on the actual mask itself that you’re supposed to remove, so make sure to do that! the actual mask is thick and full of product while the mask film is thinner and lighter in color. the directions also give you a tip to massage the mask to release the bubbling/foaming effect - I did this mask with my mom at the same time in separate rooms and she totally didn’t read the instructions so her mask didn’t bubble at all, so I would suggest to definitely massage the mask. 💬I left it on for 20 minutes and it continued to bubble about 5-10 minutes in, then stopped bubbling. you can hear the bubbles pop as the mask sits on your face, which is kinda weird but cool. the mask didn’t slip off AT ALL which is also a huge, even when I put a sweatshirt on over my head. after taking it off, the serum took about another 10 minutes to soak into my skin and my face felt super smooth and my pores looked tighter and more clean. I have a few sebaceous filaments on my nose that I sometimes pick at and as I was rubbing the serum into my skin, I saw that some of the sebaceous filaments on my nose were sloughing off (which is gross, but speaks to how well the product worked)! overall, I would definitely recommend and use this again! if you have oily skin or otherwise clogged pores, sebaceous filaments, blackheads, etc. I would suggest this for you. even if you have dry/normal skin, this would be a good option since my skin didn’t feel dried out at all afterward, even in my dry spell now, and felt rather hydrated and plump. five stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Press on nails just got a huge upgrade. If you fawn over Instagram nail accounts but for a variety of reasons don’t know how you could achieve the designs of your wildest dreams, you need to check our Chill House! I went with their three pack because I couldn’t decide on just one design. A single set of nails cost $16 and there’s more than enough to share with a friend too. Plus, these babies are reusable. The designs are trendy and cute and you can rest assured in the glue being non-toxic and vegan. Which design should I try next? #Chill House - Chill Tips - Checked Out[products]#[FiveStars]

Y’all… Let me tell you how dry my skin gets. My skin gets so dry that it looks like my skin is actually flaking. I have struggled with dry skin my entire life and I hardly find any products that truly help my skin. I reached out to a friend who gave me a skin care routine and she suggested this sunscreen PURITO - Centella Green Level Unscented Sun SPF50+ it is honestly the best! Not only is it scent free but it hydrates my skin without burning it. I have high sensitivity to a lot of products and this is one that doesn’t make my skin irritated or break out. If you struggle with dry skin, try out this sunscreen! Not only does it help with the dryness but also you should always be protecting your face with sunscreen!!!
