Organix Morroccan Curling Perfection Defining Cream

As you all should know by now, I love finding products that define my wavy hair. More importantly, I love when products define my curls without leaving them crunchy. I despise when hair products leave my hair stiff and crunchy. Anyways, moving on…I have found a gem with this defining cream.

I’ve only used one Organix product before and I was pleased with the results when I came across this little bottle at my local Walgreens, I was pretty excited to try it out.

Suave Captivating Curls Shampoo and Conditioner

I’ve been using Suave’s Captivating curls line for about two months now. 

I hate to say it but I haven’t noticed that much of an improvement in my hair. Surprisingly, it worked mostly on the lower half of my hair, not so much the top half. The top half of my hair needs the most help and protection, but the products did very little help that.  Continue reading

Powders to the rescue

With finals coming up a lot of us are starting to get a bit lazier when it comes to our hair routine. On the days that you wake up late or you simply didn’t feel like washing your hair for whatever reason….baking soda or baby powder is your solution.

Throughout the day, our hair collects dirt and oil. Keep in mind that our hair also produces it’s own oil and moisture. Too much oil can cause your scalp to itch and or course you end up looking like a grease ball. Continue reading

Tresemme Heat Tamer Spray

In my other post I reviewed Aussie’s Heat Protectant, but it was Tresemme’s product that I actually tried first.

From having no experience with heat protectants, I did not know what to expect. I applied this everyday before I used any type of heat product. Usually after I used heat products, my hair would just feel dry.

After using this heat protectant for a few months,  I hate to say it but it works just as it says it does. By that I mean, it does nothing special. It just makes my hair feel a bit less dry and prevents heat damage. I noticed that I could go a little longer between haircuts because my hair was better protected from split ends when using the products.

The “No Poo” Method

By Poo of course I mean SHAMPOO.

The no shampoo method has been around for quite sometime. I tried this myself and I failed. I went for about a month or so without using shampoo. When I told people this, they thought it was disgusting. Let me clarify this, I did wash my hair, I just did not use a shampoo. Instead I used a dry shampoo in the shape of a foam. The only reason that I failed at this is because I did not feel that my dry shampoo cleaned my hair enough. But I did notice a definite improvement in the health of my hair. Surprisingly, my hair got wavier.

Why try the no poo method? Continue reading

Aussie Heat Protectant and Shine Spray

Once upon a time, I was not a big believer in heat protectants. I never used them nor thought they would make any different in my hair routine. But one day I got curious and a I wanted to see what they big hype was about since many beauty blogs and youtube gurus were mentioning them. I was also tired of the split ends I would end from using a flat iron so often.

Before I get started, I’ll explain what a heat protectant is. Before using any heat tool (curling iron, flat iron, blow dryer etc.) it is important to use a heat protectant. A heat protectant coats your hair with a formula that prevents heat damage. Heat damage can be anything from split ends, breakage, and dryness. Many heat protectants also make your hair shinier and softer.

Even your hair deserves a drink after a long day

The next time you’re off to a BYOB function, consider leaving one beer at home in your fridge. Why? For your hair!

Surprisingly beer can help add body and shine to your hair. It also helps clean it and get rid of any excess junk/buildup.

I was a bit skeptical about this at first since it is beer after all. I was worried my hair would smell like a frat party throughout the day, but the smell does not last long.

Start off with just one can of beer, open it and let it sit there for a while. There are many different ways to incorporate beer into your hair care routine, so I’ll just start with the simplest.

After you shampoo your hair in the shower, poor the beer on your hair. Do not rinse it out right away! Massage it into your scalp as if it were any other shampoo and conditioner.  After a few minutes rinse it out with cold water, then condition your hair as normal.

A word of advice…

I’ve always been happy to have thick wavy hair. But as most of you may know, it takes quite a while to style. Months ago I was sick of how long it would take to straighten my hair because I had so much of it.

As some of may hair already guessed, I decided to chop off 7 inches of my hair. It’s just hair right? It grows back. But that’s not my issue here.

I also got my hair thinned out for the first and last time ever. It’s not that I was unhappy with having much less hair to style, it’s the after effects.
