Okay ladies, let's chat hair! I have baby fine hair but a lot of it! It's been several inches past my shoulders for as long as I can remember. I'm a fan of medium to long length hair on me. It's what looks best and I don't think going very short would complement my look. If there's ever a look that you want to try I say go for it! It will always grow back and you might end up loving it. But here's a tip: make sure your stylist is patient and doesn't mind starting by cutting a little off and stopping to check with you before they continue chopping more. That way, if they do a little at a time, you can really see if you want to go as short as you thought! I don't plan on really writing about hair, but I wanted to have a place on my site for you to reference to see what my current favorite products are, or any tips that I have! If you have any hair-specific questions, let me know and I can answer them in a blog post for you!
HOW I STYLE MY HAIR
-I wash my hair with this shampoo + conditioner and while I really love them and how inexpensive they are, I am on the hunt for a cleaner option. I'm thinking of trying Beauty Counter's daily shampoo and conditioner.
-Every now and then I wash my hair with a apple cider vinegar + water mixture. Pour a little ACV (with the mother) in a bowl, add water, and it will help get rid of any build up. Be careful to not get it in your eyes if you try this. It really makes my hair feel clean.
-A wetbrush is a must-have. Great for tangles. Also, I've been really loving this leave-in conditioner and will spray a few spritzes on the ends of my hair and brush through.
-Argan oil - 1 to 2 drops is all I need for the ends of my hair to help keep the ends healthy. I don't do this every time, but it can help to prevent breakage. I like to pick mine up from Trader Joe's! I also use it on my cuticles or will add to my hand lotion at night for extra moisture.
-I try to take a few minutes to blow-dry the top part of my hair and use a round brush on my bangs and let the middle and ends of my hair just air dry. It just helps my hair look better to use a blowdryer for the top part..I don't know how to describe it.
-Now it's time for styling. I use either this curling iron or this one. I've used Hot Tools for as long as I can remember. This Revlon one is an awesome option and only less than $25. I've been LOVING it - it's also a little bit of a bigger barrel and even this subtle change makes me feel like I'm changing up my look. Also, I always curl away from my face.
-I don't ever use hairspray unless I'm in Florida (or somewhere really humid) or for a special occasion when I need my hair to last. This is not a clean option, but it's inexpensive and I hardly ever use it.
-DRY SHAMPOO - Finally, a CLEAN + EFFECTIVE + AFFORDABLE dry shampoo. Primally Pure, y'all. Just try it! I don't know what took me so long!
