I have naturally wavy but not curly hair (2A-2C depending on humidity, product, and health) and there are almost NO shampoos for us wavy peeps! This shampoo and conditioner is so light and moisturizing and has brought some of my wave back to life that I’ve been losing due to chronic illness. It is also natural, cruelty free, vegan, and has no synthetic fragrances (huge eczema irritant for me). It also makes your hair smell like a tropical dream! Love it! #PACIfICA - Salty Waves Texturizing Shampoo #PACIfICA - Salty Waves Texturizing
Hello, sisters on Cherie! How are you? It's my first post on Cherie, I wanna introduce a weird hair tool looks like a starfish or a palm, but really deserve all curly or wavy girls rushing into the shopping mall and purchasing it without any hesitation! I started CGM on my wavy hair this month, so I know I have better avoid blow dry. My hair is too thick to dry it by using a towel, it takes me hours to air dry! That really made me crazy, I hate waiting! So I turned to my friend who has the same problem she told me I should try this holy grail tool, hair diffuser! As all curly, wavy girls know, there is a possibility that you damage your curls while diffusing, especially if you diffuse on high heat. This "starfish " diffuser can disperse the air for your blow-dry to reduce frizz and keep from disrupting the natural wave pattern. So the right tool (yes, I mean this Deva diffuser!) can dry your hair immediately like magic and give you salon-worthy curls. Why not?!? I recommend this set to all of my curly-haired friends!!! ⚠️ Make sure the blower is set to cool or medium temperature. Do not use maximum heat.
My hair type: fine, high-density 2a-c waves The Curly Girl method is an approach of washing and styling wavy and curly hair to achieve softer, more defined, and healthier curls and waves. It is useful for anyone with wavy and curly hair. I was determined to try CGM since last July after seeing lots of successful cases. I tried different lines, types of products, styling methods, and techniques, finally figured out what worked for my hair. Modified CGM for my wavy hair</bold> 1. Rinse or co-wash with a sulfate-free shampoo. 2. Use a silicone-free conditioner for conditioning, then use a leave-in conditioner. 3. Apply a silicone-free styling product to wet hair to promote curl formation. 4. Use a microfiber towel or cotton T-shirt to remove water from the hair. 5. Do not touch your hair, let it dry into a hard cast. 6. Scrunch out the cast, allow the curls to sit in their defined natural state. Basic rules of CGM No sulfates No drying alcohols No silicones No heat styling Share my CGM with you, but I definitely know different hair may have various concerns, so I hope it would be helpful for you.
Not too long ago, I really didn’t know that I had wavy hair. Like many people I had spent years brushing it and straightening it and not giving it a second thought. Finally, my laziness got the best of me and I decided to stop heat-styling my hair. I think the first step of caring for wavy hair is finding the right stylist. Around the time I decided to stop heat styling my hair I went to a new hair stylist who absolutely transformed my hair. He cut in long layers and took out a lot of the bulk in my hair, and I really think these two things were key to getting my waves to hold up. Having more layers definitely helps enhance the waves and keeps them from falling out. So here is my current styling routine! ￼￼￼Wash and condition hair: honestly I am not super picky at all about what shampoo or conditioner I use, but I try to get ones that have less sulfates and silicones in them. If anyone has any great recs for shampoo/conditioner for wavy hair, feel free to drop them below!! ￼￼￼Post-shower: I know the Curly Girl Method has you apply your products when your hair is still soaking wet, but I can’t stand standing there, freezing cold with my hair dripping everywhere. So I wrap my hair loosely in a t-shirt as soon as I get out of the shower while I dry off and apply my skincare. Then once I am dressed, I take my hair down and apply my products. Leave-in conditioner: I have talked about this before, but this is the most amazing leave-in conditioner I’ve ever used. #sexyhair - Healthy Tri-Wheat Leave In Conditioner[products]#[FiveStars] Smells amazing and leaves my waves so amazingly soft. I apply this all over my midshaft-ends and lightly rub it in. ￼￼￼Wave spray: Again, I’ve talked about this product before but it is seriously my holy grail hair product. #OUAI - Wave Spray I spray this all over my head, seriously you cannot use too much of this stuff. (Side note: I don’t recommend spraying this on dry hair because it can get sticky, but if your hair is wet you are 100% good to go.) Once I have applied this, I flip my head upside down and SCRUNCH. Depending on what I’m doing, sometimes I will plop my hair with the towel again just to keep the wet hair off my shoulders, otherwise I just let it air dry. And voila! I love being at a place where I really just love how my hair looks daily, and I never have to spend more than 10 minutes styling it!
💫 So one of my goals this year has been to embrace my natural wavy/curly hair and stop frying it into submission with a flat iron. The quarantine has really helped me on this mission but so have these these products! 💫 Amika Supernova Shine Cream Blonde- This stuff is phenomenal. I use this cream after I get out of the shower on wet hair. It weighs my hair down just enough that I don’t look like I’ve just gotten into a car accident, but still leaves a natural bouncy wave. This helps so much with minimizing my frizz and increasing shine and the purple tint keeps my blonde from looking brassy. 💫 Verb Ghost Oil- Hands down the best hair oil I’ve ever used. This makes my hair INCREDIBLY soft without weighing it down and helps a ton with defrizzing and adding shine. I’ll sometimes use this instead of the shine cream. 💫 Bumble and Bumble Hairdressers Invisible Oil Heat & UV Protective Primer- This was the first oil I ever fell in love with. It’s so light and easy to use...it almost feels more like a spray leave in conditioner than an oil. I prefer this one when my keratin is fresh and my hair is a little more on the oily/flat side because it’s so incredibly light. I love that in addition to smoothing frizz and adding shine it also protects against heat and UV. 💫 Verb Sea Texture Spray- This is only $16 and it’s my favorite texture spray of all time. I’ll use this on wet hair after an oil or shine cream and it really helps define my waves and lock them into place without being crunchy. I’ll also use this on like day 3 hair to refresh and touch up my waves.

My well-loved drugstore makeup essentials
These are the drugstore makeup picks I ACTUALLY use! Don’t get me wrong, I love a good Tarte Shapetape Concealer. Even the latest launches from Rare Beauty have me swooning. But drugstore makeup holds a special place in my heart. Walking through the aisles of Target or CVS gets me giddy. Quite honestly, I count those trips as my therapy sessions. Plus, these are the places were I started getting essentials to experiment with when I was younger! My favorite brands to score from are no doubt Pixi, NYX, Essence Cosmetics, Sonia Kashuk, Maybelline and Covergirl. They’re just my go-to’s! They’re the brands constantly putting out dupes for cult favorites. Everything in this picture, I use on a daily basis. I’ve been going through Maybelline Lifter Glosses like they’re going out of style. I actually was responsible for my local Target running out of stock once...oops. Another new essential that’s crawled its way into my everyday routine is the Covergirl Cooling Glow Stick. It’s part of their new Clean Fresh line and I use it on my WHOLE face. Top tip: try it under your eyes over your concealer 👀 I’m still in search for the perfect drugstore CC cream, does anyone have any good recommendations?
The best sunscreen for dry skin☀️
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!!!

Here is the easiest low bun ever! ✨put your hair into a bun but don’t pull all the way through ✨take the tail, wrap around the scrunchie and tuck in the bottom THATS IT! I said it was easy didn’t I?! Give this a try💗 Xo, Johanna
