MUST-HAVE Curly Hair Tools Every Curl Girl Needs
Diffuser : I mainly use the diffuser to help with my curl definition and volume after styling on wash day.. If I don’t diffuse, my hair still gets definition but stays a little flat and I don’t like that. My favorite diffuser (and the one shown) is the Xtava Diffuser . Since it's big, it dries my hair faster than other smaller diffusers. I prefer to diffuse 1 hour after air drying, and diffuse for about 15 minutes.
Detangling brush : I usually finger-detangle but there are times where I do need the extra help. The Behairful Brush is a must-have! Honestly it melts my tangles away like butter. It saves me from using too much conditioner/product to detangle when I only use my fingers. Not all detangling brushes are the same. I've tried others where I feel it's too rough on my hair and actually causes more breakage. But this one works so smooth and instantly! This detanling brush also works as a styling brush (give you amazing clumps!)
PuffCuffs: The Puff Cuffs are clips you can use in place of hair scruchies or ties. I LOVE the puffcuff because it never leaves a dent in my hair like hair ties sometimes do. I use the puffcuff mainly to sleep and when I workout! (I use it with bobby pins when I workout to secure my hair better) My curls stay intact throughout the whole time!
Shower caps: Saves my hair from getting too wet in the shower when I’m not planning on washing it just yet. I also use it along with my Deep Conditioning Heat Cap 😁
Thermal Heat Cap: The is a MUST-HAVE deep conditioning tool. Heat is important when deep conditioning since it opens the hair cuticle and allows the product to absorb better into your hair. There are other tools that offer the same functionality such as sitting under a hooded dryer but doesn't offer the same freedom as when using a heat cap! (Do you really want to sit there for 30+ mins? Didn't think so!)
Scalp massager: I mainly use the scalp massager as a volumizing tool. There are times where I feel my fingers are too big and can ruin my curls that are stuck at the scalp if I start massaging it, causing frizz. The scalp massager is gentle enough to lift and loosen my roots which brings out the rest of my curls and makes my hair look bigger.
Satin pillowcase, bonnet, hair scruchies: ALL are must-haves for sleeping! If you have curly hair, just switch to satin pillowcases completely. Satin is gentler on the hair compared to cotton since helps prevent breakage and TANGLES, minimizes frizz, and preserves curls better overnight. The bonnet helps to lock in moisture so it prevents me from waking up with really dry curls. I also wake up with most of my curls still intact with minimal frizz! If you’re going to get any of these items, you HAVE to get them from NPTressTreats! (Super cute and customizable options! All hand-made!)
Spray bottle: I use this for my refresh days. Just wets my hair without the risk of over-soaking my hair lol. Or turning on the shower head.. You can get the mist bottles at Amazon.
Microfiber towel: A microfiber towel (A t-shirt also works too) absorbs the excess water out of my hair when I finish styling. I find that my hair clumps better after scrunching the water out with the towel. It also prevents my hair from getting too weighed down with all the extra water.
Kylie x Grinch - Worth the Hype?
Review time!!! I just received the entire Kylie Cosmetics Grinch Collection in the mail this week & I want to break down each product and tell you what I loved and didn’t love. Palette: I’m not one that reaches for tons of colour usually but all the greens in this palette are gorgeous! There’s a mix of matte and shimmer shades, and as usual, the shadows blend like a dream! The good thing about this palette is that there are still some neutral shades rather than just greens. I definitely appreciate the mixture of shades. Shadow Sticks: The Kylie shadow sticks are probably one of my favourite products they have ever released. They are so extremely pigmented, and so easy to apply. They’re basically fool proof, and they set as a shadow. If you haven’t tried them out, I highly suggest you do! In this collection we have a super pretty light shimmery green, light gold, and two rosy toned shadow sticks. Shimmer Eye Glazes: This product is insane. They are a super intensely pigmented eyeshadow that leaves the lids looking wet & dripping in glitter! One swipe of these on the lid is literally all you need for that intense shimmer. If you’re someone who loves super shimmery eyeshadow, I recommend giving the Kylie Cosmetics Shimmer Eye Glazes a try. This collection came with 2 shades: a minty turquoise green and a gold - & I’m obsessed and so happy to be adding these to my collection!! Olive Kyliner: My go to liquid liner is the black Kyliner, so i wasn’t surprised when i loved the easy application and long wearing quality of this olive Kyliner! The liner applies a lighter olive green and dries down to a deeper olive shade. It’s definitely not something I’d reach for everyday, although it’s definitely cute for the holidays or even for a pop of colour to a neutral eye! Blush: I am a huge fan of the Kylie Cosmetics Blushes as opposed to the other blushes I’ve tried from the brand this one had some shimmer in it! It’s quite similar to the NARS “orgasm” blush but with a stronger pink hue. I love the shimmer in it, it adds a pretty glow to the cheeks, perfect for the holidays.. or any day really :P Highlight: Def on theme, but probably my least favourite product in of the collection :( Don’t get me wrong, it’s super blinding and glowy. Although, once I applied to my face it showed off as very green. Personally I don’t want a green glow on my face! But hey, if that’s your vibe that’s cool! Definitely not a highlight I’d reach for everyday. Lip Kit: Obsessed. This red is EVERYTHING! This Lip Kit is one of the best reds I have ever tried. It has a matte finish and is extremely long wearing. I know it’s sold out but a similar shade would be “BOSS” by Kylie. Lipsticks: These shades are gorg for the holidays and I love the shade range! Long wearing & comfortable on the lips. High Glosses: Kylies high glosses are high shine, but very sticky! So if you’re not a fan of sticky glosses you won’t love these. These shades are perf for the holidays and everyday!

My AM routine while rocking cherie merch!
@cheriethanks for the cute sweatshirt! I am obsessed. Here is my am routine! sisley - FLORAL TONING LOTION First I tone and prep my skin with this toner. I love this toner so much because it is so hydrating and doesn’t strip the skin. It also moisturizes while helping to clean and prep it to absorb other products. NATURIUM - Hyaluronic Acid Essence 2% Then I use this essence. I love this brand so much and this essence is so hydrating and light. It helps plump and prepares it for the serum. NATURIUM - Niacinamide Serum 12% Plus Zinc 2% Next I use this serum which I have been enjoying. It is super gentle that I can even use it during the day. So far my skin has been tolerating it very well. I also notice my dark spots decreasing much quicker. LORD JONES - Acid Mantle Repair CBD Moisturizer Then I use this moisturizer that I am obsessed with. It so far has been my favorite product of the year. It’s so hydrating and calming. It feels amazing on the skin as well. Last I finish off with a sunscreen. I previously reviewed this before! It’s from Korean brand Corthe. ^^ what do you like to do in your morning routine?
