#GameChanger

I call this my magic wand. Do want a salon perfect blowout ? Well this can get you there. Okay so I was at Bed Bath & Beyond when I saw this lovely tool. It was love at first sight. I’m a mixed chick so my hair is thick and curly. I’ve spent so many hours blow drying hen flat ironing my hair on top of all that. It’s was a long process and always such a hassle to straighten it but not anymore. This Magic wand dries and straightens my hair in less than 45 mins. I’m all about making beauty simple and easy. This has saved me so much time, I love it. Highly recommend.

Why Get a DryBar Blowout?

Because it feels so good to get your hair washed by someone else

Because a scalp massage is like AWESOME

Because you get to watch girly movies while drinking really good coffee

Because it makes your hair look shiny & bouncy

Because it always looks 10 times better than when you try to blow dry your own hair

Love these travel size bottles great for the gym bag! I use the triple sec as a dry shampoo 🙂 FullSizeRender-112

Tried the bay breeze treatment & loved it so much I bought the treatment for at home use.  The professional grade treatment penetrates into the hair fiber to instantly review dry, dull, thirsty hair, leaving your locks silky-soft, shiny, detangled and healthy-looking.IMG_4874mini me loves her new lemon drop brush

Silicone Free Haircare

I’ve noticed that when I use products that have silicones my curls go away. I’ve been trying to use products that don’t have silicones (it seems like every hair product has them). What works for one person may not work for you, but these  ingredients cause the same amount of damage to all hair types. A product with a lot of silicones that will coat your hair & you will need a clarifying shampoo to remove the build-up.

Water Soluble Silicones 

Dimethicone Copolyol

Lauryl Methicone Copolyol

Hydrolyzed wheat protein (Hydroxypropyl Polysiloxane)

Any Silicone with PEG as a prefix

Non Soluble (not water soluble)

Trimethylsilylamodimetheicone

Dimethicone

Phenyl Trimethicone

Cetearyl Methicone

Dimethiconol

Amodimethicon

Stearyl Dimethicone

Cyclomethicone

Cetyl Dimethicone

Cyclopentasiloxane

Behenoxy Dimethicone

Stearoxy Dimethicone

Fact: Soluble and non-soluble silicones coat the hair

Sulfates are also really damaging & most shampoos contain harsh, drying sulfates that are extremely damaging for curly hair (ammonium laureth sulfate, ammonium lauryl sulfate, sodium laureth sulfate, sodium lauryl sulfate, etc

Flat Irons 

So I recently purchased a new flat iron because I gave away my GHD flat iron to my sister in law. I got this new one at Cosmoprof & I am so pleased with it. Much better than the GHD & CHI ( I had a CHI flat iron before the GHD) This Paul Mitchell flat iron leaves my hair so much shinier & smoother. I’ve never tried Titanium anything on my hair but it seems like my hair loves it ! 
I always let my hair air dry & I use Tresemme heat tamer spray on my locks. The mini Babybliss flat iron is for my baby hairs & touch ups. I highly recommened these amazing flat irons they get the job done!! You know what I mean 😁           p

🌀Make It Last All Night Long 🌀

I love to style hair. Tonight I decided to do a simple look. All I did was curl my hair & pin it to the side 💕 

Super EZ Steps: 📝

Curl hair with 1 1/4 inch barrel 

Pin up the curls & spray with hairspray

 (let it set for 20 mins max)

After you take out all the pins flip your head over and shake it like a salt shaker

That’s it 🙂 Curly hair with volume that will last the whole night thru 😊
   

Because Who Doesn’t Want Healthy Hair?!

So I started a hair growth serum last night 🙂 (I’ll let you guys know how it goes as time passes). I’ve bleached my hair so much in the past & I really want to get it healthy again. I have vowed not bleach my hair in 2015 lol but I will color my roots, yes color damages the hair but oh well :/ (I have a few gray hairs & I refuse to let that show!)

 

What I love the most about this serum is that’s it’s not sticky or thick, it’s a very thin serum. The smell is light & I love the really cute bottle that the serum comes in. I chose this over Rogaine because well the ingredients in Rogaine seem extremely harsh & some serious side effects. FullSizeRender-98 IMG_0653
