Silicone is bad for hair？NO! Try it if you wanna keep curly hair straight!
As it is summer now, many people often ask how to keep very curly hair straight and smooth during this season. I have black curly hair, and my answer is just one word—silicone. You can find this ingredient in many haircare products. It acts like a raincoat and leave your hair and skin feeling slick and smooth. Its main function is minimizing frizz because it's water-resistant, so it prevents humidity from entering the hair shaft and swelling it. You may ask: Is silicone safe in haircare? Well, I suggest you can occassionlly use it. Using a shampoo, conditioner, and styling serum all containing silicone will not only control frizz but also help with detangling and shine. I learn a 12-step program for fighting frizz recently and it really works. Step1 Shampoo and rinse. Step 2 Massage in conditioner. Leave on for 5 minutes, then rinse. Step 3 Gently squeeze excess water from hair with a towel. (Do not rub.) Step 4 Detangle with a wide-toothed comb. Step 5 Apply leave-in serum with fingers, working from ends to scalp. Step 6 Section wet hair in two halves, top and bottom of head. Fasten top section with clips. Step 7 Starting with the bottom section, use a paddle brush to stretch curls straight while blowing dry from scalp to ends. Step 8 Do the same with the top section. Step 9 Section hair again, top and bottom, fastening top with clip. Step 10 Use flatiron on bottom section. Step 11 Use flatiron on top section. Step 12 Apply serum with fingers, working upward toward scalp. If you have questions, just leave a comment below😘
Three Easy Braided Hairstyles for Curly Hair
This easy dutch braid is my go to for a quick, fun look! Plus it's super versatile - I use it as the base for the three looks in this video. I have thick, curly hair. This style works the best for me on my day 2 or 3 hair - this way it requires very little styling! Here's a quick how to: 1. Part your hair into two rows on the top of your head, this is where your braids will go! 2. Dutch braid (or French braid) these two rows. Both of these braids are easy! Simply start a normal three strand braid, as you braid add small pieces of hair into each strand. 3. From here have fun with it! You can leave these two braids out, add them into a ponytail, go with one top-knot style bun at the top of your head, or go with my favorite style which is the two fun buns! Products Used: IGK - Rich Kid Coconut Oil Gel this medium hold gel works well for my second day hair. It isn't strong enough for me to use on my wash and go days, but works really well when I want to restyle or change up my style.

Easy Hacks to Make Your Curly Hair Healthy And Gorgeous
Hi, friends. I shared some tips on washing curly hair in my last post As I have mentioned before, I have curly hair and curly hair is naturally very dry and today I gonna share more about how to reduce the dryness drastically. 1. Don’t brush your curls DRY if you have wavy or curly hair, you don’t need to comb your hair everyday, especially when it’s dry. When you wash your hair, twice or thrice a week, after applying a conditioner, use a wide-toothed comb. This distributes the conditioner properly throughout your hair, keeps the curl clumps together and reduces frizz. The only other times you can comb your curls is after applying a leave in conditioner (explained later in this post) outside the shower and sometimes with oil applied to your hair before you shower. Since hair is at it’s weakest when it’s wet, to reduce the tension on them when you comb after conditioner, you can prepare in advance by detangling a little with oil. This removes all the big knots, making your time in the shower easier and faster! 2. Protect your Curls at Night You toss & turn at night and wake up next morning to find it’s made your curls messy, frizzy & they’ve lost definition. You’ve put in so much effort to get beautiful curls after washing and styling them. If you want to keep it that way, you need to protect your curls at night – Make a ‘pineapple’ or a loose bun and cover it with a satin cap. 3. Protect your Dry Ends with Oil & Prevent Split ends The hair at the end of your length is the weakest and driest. Besides deep conditioning them and trimming it yourself every few months, start coating them with a few drops of oil. This will ‘seal’ the moisture you added in with the leave in conditioner & styling products. This is essential if you are trying to grow your hair longer and faster! 4. AVOID HEAT as Much as Possible- (Straightener, Blow Dryer) I can’t stress this hard enough! Heat isn’t great for hair to begin with but for curly hair it can be disastrous. As heat damages our hair, it is better to keep it to a minimum. The more you avoid, the better it is for your curl’s health. 5. Drink Lot’s of Water Whats your opinion? Share your ideas with me!
Easy & Quick🔥 Get Rihanna's gorgeous curls with black-owned hair products at home!
I am a big fan of Rihanna, not only for her chill songs but also for her gorgeous look! I mean, although all of her looks are quite amazing, I love her natural black hairstyle, which is bold and beautiful! What's more, it only takes a few steps to get this look! Step 1: Gently washing The most important thing for natural girls is keeping your hair healthy and hydrated. I like to use MIELLE - Babassu Conditioning Shampoo and their MIELLE - Moisture RX Hawaiian Ginger Moisturizing & Anti-Breakage Conditioner. Mielle Organics is a black-owned beauty brand, and all of their products are organic and sulfate-free with nourishing ingredients to help fight breakages. Washing my hair with those shampoo and conditioner helps me to add more volumes to my natural hair! Step 2: Applying curl-defining cream It's better to apply a curl-defining cream when your hair is still wet because frizz will start to appear as soon as the hair begins to dry. Scrunch some cream through the lengths for a deep moisturization. I use MIELLE - Brazilian Curly Cocktail Curl Cream containing Brazilian organic oils to keep my curls defined and healthy. Step 3: Air Drying My advice for natural hair is avoiding bowing out your hair as this can dehydrate the ends and stimulate more frizzes! Therefore, I always leave my hair air-dried and put on a sheet mask during that time. Step 4: Refreshing The last step is to refresh my hair with MIELLE - Pomegranate & Honey Curl Refreshing Spray, which has a fruity scent and helps me hold my curls for the whole day! However, before you jump into the tutorials, I'd like to kindly remind you that this is a long curly black hairstyle with layered bangs, so you need to trim your layers on both sides at least every 6 weeks. Hope this tutorial can help you! Love you guys xxx!

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.4 DAYS AGO
