Sep. 15, 2020
Cherry Lola Treatment! This is one of my favorite natural hair hydration secrets. This method was created by popular YouTube hair blogger ~Cherry Lola~ hehe and it has changed my hair for the best. *Disclaimer* It’s a little stinky and messy so make sure to do it on a day you aren’t rushing to get anywhere. All you need is: 1-2 Cups depending on hair length- Greek Yogurt(Or Mayonnaise) for protein base 2 Tbs Braggs Amino Acids (the secret sauce) 2Tbs Raw Honey- Natural humectant that will help draw in some moisture 2 Tbs Baking Soda- This is opening up the hair’s shaft to allow for better product penetration. Make sure you hair is fully saturated, leave on for about 30 mins and rise with cool water! This treatment is amazing for any hair texture to help with hydration and defrizzing. But for naturals? WHEW! Concentrate this on your roots, and banish the puffiness, and get seriously defined curls. This is a super affordable way to get amazing results and keep up your hair health. I would recommend 1x a month.For a healthy scalp (and healthy curls)
Want your hair to grow faster? And your scalp to be healthy? Who doesn’t? It’s not just about the hair product, but the actual tools we use for our hair. Good evening 🌃hope you all had a beautiful day This is the Groove by Vanity Planet and it’s saved me! This is an electronic water resistant scalp massager. It has 2 vibration settings, which help promote hair growth and cleaning. Choose whatever setting is most comfy on your head :) Also if you have dandruff! UGH dandruff is so annoying and those of you that struggle with it I know you know it’s so annoying. Especially when you’ve tried everything! And nothing works. Well, I’m happy to tell you that THIS WORKS.👏🏼 (It also includes a little screw driver to change the battery when it’s time. I have had mine for 7 months and still have not had to change the batteries 😹but again I only wash once or twice a week because I’m a curly girl) Thanks for reading 💙T-shirt trick to protect your tresses
The Curly Girl Method isn’t new. My mom has been using this method for so long. I had never done it before because I have naturally curly hair and didn’t think it would make a difference...well.... I was wrong. My curls are dry and thick and nothing seems to make them bouncy and full except a good haircut with layers. But, you know, quarantine and all...so I haven’t had a haircut since February! This is my take on the curly girl method: 1. Start with wet hair! This is me about 10 minutes after I got out of the shower. 2. Use a curl defining cream or gel and scrunch it through your hair. Yep, from bottom to scalp. I used my current favorite which smells great and is such a good amount for the price. 3. Grab an oversized t-shirt. The softer the better, but as long as it’s cotton. 4. Turn your head upside-down. Take the bottom two corners of the shirt and tie them around your forehead to your neck like a headband. 5. Grab your hair and “plop” or stuff your hair into the shirt while pulling up the rest of it. 6. Trap your hair in the shirt and wrap the sleeves up around your head like a headband again. 7. Tie the sleeves together in the front! 8. Leave it on for 20-60 minutes. My hair usually takes about 8-10 hours to fully air dry so I let mine sit for an hour. 9. Take your hair out of the shirt and let it air dry the rest of the way. If it gets too crunchy, re-wet it with water to further disperse the curl cream or gel. ...VOILA! My hair looks super voluminous and full. My curls are also really defined and beautiful, I also love how my strands aren’t clumped together so it looks lighter and thinner. I really love how it turned out. Have you used the curly girl method? What’s your favorite curl cream or gel to use with it? #CheriePartnerA nutrient-packed scalp rinse
Hey guys! As a curly girl, I am more than aware of Shea Moisture’s various lines and collections. I, personally, love their Jamaican Black Castor Oil collection. Specifically, the and . I’ll do a review on these soon! Today, I was in my local CVS, and picked up . I have been eyeing a lot of rinses for a while and I was excited to make this my first try. My next venture is for a rice water rinse! Fast Facts 1. Moringa Great for hair and skin, beneficial for your bodily health overall Packed with Amino Acids, the building blocks of cells, essential for hair growth 2. Avocado 🥑 Fantastic source of biotin which is great for stimulating hair growth Filled with omega-3 fatty acids and essential amino acids which coat the hair shaft so that the strands can retain moisture 3. Tea Rinses Rich in nutrients which help to add moisture to the hair and prevent frizz and flyways Promote hair growth, can balance pH levels, and can even enhance your curl definition. This product was only around 10 bucks and I think for what it claims to do, it was worth it. It is supposed to lightly cleanse the hair while leaving the hair soft and manageable. I rinsed my hair thoroughly with warm water and then applied the rinse. The reason for the four stars was because of my confusion. The directions say not to rinse this product...even though it is a gentle cleanser and a rinse. After putting the product in my hair, massaging it in and seeing the low lather that resulted, I decided to rinse it from my hair. You can kind of see the little suds on my hairline in the picture. Going past my confusion, I truly loved using this product. It did EXACTLY what it said it’s purpose was. A gentle clean while still keeping my hair soft. For individuals looking for a deeper clean, I would not recommend this product. For individuals that love a big lather when cleansing their hair I, also, would not recommend this product. After rinsing the product I applied my , let sit for an hour, then rinsed. I did my usual moisture method(take a look at my older posts to see) and just let my hair air dry. It honestly felt so great afterwards and CLEAN! I don’t know if I’ll repurchase but I’ll definitely up my tea rinse search! Have you guys ever tried a tea rinse? If so, how did you like it and what brand or was it DIY? Let me know!To define and plump your curls
The Plump Method is a styling technique for people with naturally curly hair to create big, bouncy and fluffy curls. My hair type is 2c/3a, but I’m sure these tips work for all kinds of curls, so keep reading! I’ve been so pleased to learn that I can utilize different methods and techniques and have different curls because of it. Rake & shake, rake & scrunch, and the plump method all give significantly different results. The Plump Hair Method Tutorial Step 1: Co-Wash/Shampoo and Condition as Usual With the co-wash, or conditioner, in your hair, flip your head over and gently finger-comb your hair so it is all going forward. Use a wide-tooth comb to distribute product evenly; this will also smooth your hair and prevent frizz. Step 2: Form Curl Clumps, Apply Product, Finger Curl With hair still flipped upside down, rinse the conditioner out of your hair. Let the water help your curls form into large clumps. Those large clumps will help you get big fluffy curls once it is dry. While still in the shower with hair still pushed forward, gently press excess water out of your curl clumps. Your curls should still be soaking wet. Now would be the time to apply leave-in, if you choose. Once your product is applied, finger curl each clump for more definition. Next, smoosh a small amount of gel into each curl clump. Step 3: Time to Plop Plopping your curls will help “set them” and will also help with volume. I use a soft T-shirt; the key here is to let the curl clumps coil as you set them in the plop. I let my curls sit plopped in the T-shirt for about 20 minutes. Step 4: Time to Dry I highly recommend diffusing, I find it gives me the best volume. Do NOT separate your curl clumps when they are still wet! The curl clumps should start to separate on their own as you diffuse. Step 5: Finishing Touches Once my curls are about 80% to 90% dry, I start to pull apart any curls still clumped together. Once clumps are separated, continue to diffuse until dry. Once your curls are 100% dry, use your fingers to gently shake your curls out at the roots. This will help with volume and also help lift curls from your scalp.

How to build your skincare routine
How to build your skincare routine VOL. I - for many people getting into skincare it can super confusing (even as a professional it is) 😳 • Therefore I’m coming out with a series to help anyone who needs some guidance on where to begin 😉 • 3 parts: Step 1 - addressing your skin concerns! Step 2 - doing some research on different brands, ingredients, products to use or even consulting a professional and Step 3 - buying the essentials and not splurging 🤷🏽♀️ • Many esthetician’s and dermatologists offer consultations to clients who need help or guidance so check the ones in your area to see if that’s an option for you 👏🏽 • Not splurging is KEY! The last thing you want to do is drop $500 on products, only to find out your skin doesn’t agree with them or you don’t like them 🥴 • Was this chart helpful? Are you excited about this new series? 💙 • What’s your beginner skincare advice for building a routine? ♥️ CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin PAULA'S CHOICE - Resist Advanced Replenshing Toner
DON’T try these at home!
With so many self- proclaimed beauty gurus in the world today, it’s very easy to get sucked into the DIY trend. Most experts and skincare specialists will tell you these homemade concoctions are not as good as they are made to be. Here are 5 ingredients you should not put on your face and why. 1. Essential Oils- The fragrant portion of plants is what makes essential oils. Modern science has revealed how fragrant oils cause problems for the skin. In the long run components in essential oils can significantly irritate and damage the skin. 2. Lemon Juice 🍋- Lemons are extremely acidic, which will irritate your skin. You can experience excessive redness, dryness, and skin peeling. Using lemons on your skin can cause more damage then benefit to your skin. 3. Coconut Oil- This ingredient causes a lot of debate amongst my followers, but fact is a fact, coconut oil is highly comedogenic. This means that the oil clogs pores on your face. When you apply coconut oil to your face it lays on the surface and is not able to be absorbed into the skin due to its large molecules. It can cause breakouts, blackheads, and whiteheads. 4. Witch Hazel- Here is another debate stirring ingredient. A lot of my patients and followers swear by witch hazel because of its immediate results on absorbing oil on the skin. What they fail to understand that it is not only absorbing the excess oils, but it is also stripping your skin of its natural oils. This can be very damaging to your skin and it’s natural protecting barrier, causing unnatural sensitized and dry skin. 5. Toothpaste- Such a popular trend and so harmful to your skin. Toothpaste contains high levels of baking soda which will mess with your skin’s ph level. This can lead to redness and burning of the skin. Toothpaste is a horrible option for your blemishes and instead I would recommend THE inkey LIST - Succinic Acid Acne Treatment As tempting as it is to try natural remedies at home, do your skin a favor and resort to stabilized and researched ingredients and products.

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!!!
