It’s not easy to blow dry your hair perfectly, especially when you have to do it yourself. Not only the process itself is rather time-consuming and tiring but also varies depending upon hair type and length. In this piece, we will be covering some tips to get that perfect blow-dried look on your hair. Moreover, we will be covering several hair types so each one feels get to benefit from this article. So let’s begin:
Blow-Drying Straight Hair:
Straight hair blow-dries rather straight and flat, so here is how to do it professionally without having to make it look flat and lifeless:
  • Start with applying a heat-protecting product on half-dried hair. Wait for your hair to be almost 80% dry before you start with the dryer.
  • Next, start clipping your hair so you can work on each individual section.
  • Start from the lower layers and work your way to the crown step by step.
  • Use a volume maximizing roll brush.
  • Roll each section on the brush and roll away from your face towards the ends of the hair.
  •  Apply the blow drier at medium heat and full throw in the direction of the brush. 
  • Keep rerolling and brushing down until the section is dried.
  • Tie back the section done so you can work on the other section. Repeat for all other sections one by one.
  • For the crown, use the brush horizontally and blow-dry backward to give the hair at top volume.
  • Use your fingers to part your hair and you are done.
  • BlowDrying Wavy Hair:
    Blow drying wavy hair is rather sensitive as there is a high chance to mess up the curls. Here’s how you do it simple and easy.
  • Cut down the frizz by drying off freshly washed hair with a microfiber towel.
  • Apply heat-protecting products through the waves and let hair dry to almost 80%.
  • Use a hairdryer brush instead of a simple hair drier. But if not possible, try to use a diffuser instead.
  • Use the brush on a three-inch-wide patch and start rolling from roots all the way to the end. 
  • Keep going for a few times until it is completely dried, the roll it over your finger until it cools down to give it a perfect wavy texture.
  • After you are done, apply a little bit of hair oil along the length of the hair to eliminate any frizz and to tousle-up the waves.
  • BlowDrying Curly Hair:
    Curly hair takes a whole lot of time in order to get them properly blow-dried. It is easy to ruin the curl pattern of the hair with even a single mistake. This one is all about experimenting and trial and error. Workout what works best for you. But here’s a small guide to smooth things along.
  • Start by applying styling milk or cream using your finger along the length of your hair on wet hairs.
  • Dry out the excess water by flipping your hair upside down and crumpling it in a microfiber towel.
  • Apply a gel-cream for styling and scrunch along to distribute it evenly throughout the length.
  • In the same upside-down manner start using the blower with a distributor as a nozzle.
  • Cup section of your hair in the distributer and hold each section for 15-20 seconds.
  • Repeat for all the sections and avoid touching the hair with your hand.
  • When done, flip your hair from side to side without parting them with your hand and let them take from on their own.
  • To hold your curls up and give them a definition, you can use styling gel for curls. You must do it while your hair is still damp.
  • Finally, use regular blow drier at low speed to dry the roots and add volume to them.
  • So, whether you have straight, wavy, or curly hair; now you can style them at home on your own without having to go to a salon.

    How I Keep my Skin Clear // Daytime Routine ✨
    Hey Cherie Fam! I wanted to make a video on how I keep my skin clear (ish). My skin isn’t perfect. I still have some acne scars and hyper pigmentation, but using these products have helped my face look less dull and faded some of my acne scars. I think what really helped my skin concerns are the Drunk Elephant serums such as the C-Firma and the TLC Franboos. The rest helped with my dryness and helps prevent break outs. Vitamin C helps lighten hyperpigmentation, brown spots and help even out skin tone. Glycolic acid is an exfoliant which unclogs dead skin cells. DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum My sunscreen has hyaluronic acid which alleviates dry skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also speeds up wound healing which can help with break outs. elta md SKINCARE - UV Daily Broad-Spectrum SPF 40 For reference, I have very dry skin and eczema prone. If you have oily or combination skin my skin care routine may not work for you so please do your skin care research first. I hope you find this helpful and may the skin Goss bless your skin. Xoxo, Francesca 💋

    How long it takes for your products to work
    How long it takes for your products to work
    Expecting results overnight from your skincare products is a recipe for disappointment. Unless it’s a cleanser or a toner/essence in which you should see results almost immediately, but these results are temporary and superficial. The timeline to see results is entirely dependent on what type of product you are using. On average 28 days is a good rule of thumb and the time it takes your skin to complete a full cell turnover cycle. A full cycle accounts for the time it takes for a fresh skin cell to appear, mature, die and shed. Deeper and long-term changes like acne, hyperpigmentation, etc. take longer because products like retinoids work at a genetic level. Use this guide to stick to your skincare products and be patient. A skincare tip would be to start one new product at a time.
