Aug. 19
Wavy hair is a flattering and versatile style, but it’s harder to achieve than you might think. Once you’ve got your products and tools to hand (you’ll probably need hairspray and curling tongs to achieve waves if you’re not blessed with them naturally), it’s important to find a wavy style that suits your hair texture and length, and your personal style. Scroll down to find inspiration for your next wavy hairstyle and tips on how to achieve each one.
Groomed waves

IG@lukepluckrose

This classic, polished style requires wrapping hair around wide-barreled curling tongs. The goal is to achieve super tight curls which you can then comb through with a wide-tooth comb to loosen. Finish the look with hairspray to maintain volume and height.
Beachy waves

IG@torinicolebass

For summer, nothing beats a beachy wave – and they’re totally foolproof to achieve. Towel-dry hair then mist with salt spray and blow-dry roughly until hair is 80% dry. If your hair struggles to hold a wave, use curling tongs to twist random pieces in different directions to amplify the tousled effect.
Layered waves

IG@styledbydaniellerenee

This style requires separating hair into three sections – the crown of the head and then two sections below. Use curling tongs to add waves evenly to each section, alternating direction for each one. The result? Buoyant waves that will last all day.
Hollywood waves

IG@natalieannehair

This retro-glam style requires a deep side part for a swept effect. Apply a volume-boosting mousse to roots and blow-dry loosely then use a wide-barreled curling iron to add a soft, loose wave. You’ll need plenty of hairspray to keep the shape in place, but choose a light formula that will maintain bounce.
Crimped waves

IG@lukepluckrose

Remember crimpers? Well, it’s time to dig yours out again because the iconic 90s style is back. Crimp hair from the nape of the neck to tips, from the roots through the lengths, or just a few random strands to experiment with this textured style.
Sculpted waves

IG@maneaddicts

To achieve this groomed finish, you’ll need to start on clean, dry hair. Use a wide-barreled tong and curl wide 2-inch sections of hair, clipping each up for 20 minutes to set the curl. Once hair is cool, use a soft-bristles brush to gently brush out the curls.
Wavy ends

IG@addisonraee

If you’re in a rush but still want to add a little finesse to your hair, this style is quick and easy to achieve. Use wide-barrelled tongs to loosely curl the ends of your hair – no higher than the bottom of your ears. Let hair cool then run your fingers through the lengths to finish this tousled look.
Long waves

IG@boho.blonde.perth

If you don’t have a natural wave, use tongs to create one by wrapping random pieces of hair around the wand and lightly tousling with your fingers. This is also a great second-day hairstyle for hair that’s previously been in a more high-maintenance style.
Messy waves

IG@maneaddicts

To achieve a style like this one, add a wave-enhancing cream to hair while it’s still damp and air-dry or use a diffuser. If your hair struggles to hold a curl, use straighteners to add shape by twisting random pieces of hair.
Wavy ponytail

IG@maneaddicts

This low-maintenance style is effortless to achieve and will stay intact all day long. Just curl your hair from the nape of your neck and through the lengths to the tips, before tying into a loose ponytail and taming loose strands with a lightweight hair gel.
No matter what your hair length or style is, there’s plenty of choice when it comes to choosing a wavy hairstyle that works for you.

No-Heat Style
No-Heat Style
Let’s learn a no heat style! Start by gathering your hair to one side Begin a rope braid in the front by twisting two pieces. Add hair to each section and twist again. Continue this pattern until you reach your ear. Split the remaining hair into two. While holding the section pop index finger and thumb through. Grab through the other section and repeat! Secure with an elastic. Xo
Why pH of skincare products is important?
Why pH of skincare products is important?
The pH is defined as the negative logarithm (base ten) of the concentration of free hydrogen ions in aqueous solution. The pH of skin surface ranges from 4.5 to 6 making it slightly acidic. The acidic nature of the whole skin surface was first claimed by Heuss in 1892; however, the first scientific study was carried out by Schade and Marchionini in 1928, who called it the acid mantle. The “acid mantle” protects the skin by inhibiting the growth of pathogenic organisms, regulating keratinization, desquamation and wound healing. Any disruption in the acid mantle disrupts the activity of enzymes involved in barrier function and anti-microbial protection. The skin pH and the buffering capacity of the skin surface are made up of the components of the stratum corneum as well as the secretions from sebaceous and sweat glands. Sweat is an important contributor towards skin acidity owing to its content of amino acid, lactic acid, and urea, which supplement skin NMF levels. The formation of stratum corneum barrier requires enzymes that are pH dependent. Two lipid-processing enzymes β-glucocerebrosidase and acidic sphingomyelinase require a pH of 5.6 and 4.5, respectively. An increased skin surface pH activates enzyme serine proteases, which causes degradation of corneodesmosomes and affects the skin barrier. pH also has a big impact on the skin microbiome. The bactericidal activity, because of dermicidin and nitrites in sweat, occurs optimally at pH 5.5. The resident bacterial flora changes as pH increases causing increase in population and activity of P. acnes and Staphylococcus aureus which are responsible for acne and eczema. All these result in contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, ichthyosis, acne vulgaris and Candida albicans infections. Products with high pH cause swelling of skin follicles affecting the permeability of the skin making it dry, sensitive, and susceptible. Most of the skincare products are formulated within the pH range of normal healthy skin except the exfoliating products that contain alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA’s), Vitamin C products and chemical peel which work at low pH. Facial oils, cleansing oils, balms are not pH dependent.

Curology vs The Ordinary! Which is better?!
Curology vs The Ordinary! Which is better?!
Curology - Curology formula This is the first photo! Did wonders for my skin it was the best it had ever been since I started getting acne in middle school. Curology literally saved my skin, it was clear and great! (Over a year later) The second photo:/ I decided to stop using curology around 2 months ago and start using ordinary products. I decided to do this because I wanted to see if the ordinary could do the same thing as curology and maybe make my skin even better. This wasn’t because curology was bad or anything It was just something I wanted to test. I was pretty confident in my skin so I didn’t think it would be bad. I saw on social media how great it was so I figured why not? ... After slowly introducing ordinary products into my skincare routine to ( i used both ordinary and curology products together) I could see that my skin was breaking out more when I introduced the ordinary products. I didn’t think much of it cause I knew that my skin was just purging from the new products. After about 2 months of using both curology and ordinary products I decided to just try ordinary products because my skin was breaking out a lot and I felt that the ordinary would help it. (I think should’ve stuck with curology but this was just my curiosity about the product). ... (Now) I am on week 6 of using all ordinary products and this is what my skin looks like (photo 2) and I’m not happy with the results:/The first couple weeks I knew I would be purging, my skin was at its worst a couple weeks ago (week 3). But I figured that by now or next week my skin would be clear( the only reason I felt that my skin would be pretty much clear by now or next week was because while using curology all my acne was gonna by week 7). So I’m still trying to figure out if I wanna continue to use the ordinary products for a couple more weeks before I give up because it’s not giving me the results I want. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% I don’t really know how to rate this because obviously it hasn’t worked for my skin very well but I’m not sure if it’s because my skin needs more time to adjust (it has been 6 weeks so...). I think that this product works great for some people but for me definitely not. Right from the start of using it, it broke me out and then once I only used this line of products it made my skin terrible. I also used The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution Which didn’t do much in the 6weeks I used it. I did feel like it helped my acne a little. Overall I really did wish this line of products would help my acne and make my skin clear like curology but that wasn’t the case. This product line is definitely not for my skin. I’ll write out my skin care routine comparisons in my next post!
Dry Shampoo white residue? Don’t worry I got you
Dry Shampoo white residue? Don’t worry I got you
I love a dry shampoo with a lot of powder because it is what is absorbing the oil to make your hair look less greasy. However, sometimes there is a little white powder residue that I can’t seem to rub into my dark hair. Simple solution 💡!! Shine spray! It makes it all blend away!
