10 Beauty Tips:
  1. Prevent frizz and speed up your drying time by using paper towel to wring water from your hair after shower. The paper won’t create as much friction as a towel, so you end up less frizzy. Also a paper towel absorbs more water than a cloth towel, speeding up your drying time.
  2.  When tweezing, make sure you soften your skin before you start by dabbing a cotton ball soaked in warm water or cream. When tweezing, do so in the direction of your hair’s growth.
  3. To stretch your hair color you can use DIY home glaze. Glazes fill holes and rough spots in your hair shafts, helping smooth your mane and putting moisture back into your hair. This  will keep your color shiny, bright and  lasting longer.
  4. Get moisture back into your skin in half the time by using hair conditioner to moisturize your hair and body. Just massage it in head to toe in the shower, rinse and dry. The conditioner will moisturize just as well as body lotion.
  5. If you run out of makeup remover, use body lotion or Olive oil with a cotton ball  to remove makeup. It also works well on tough mascara.
  6. Get more for your money, by applying styling products 10 minutes before you style. Whether you are curling, straightening, or doing an updo, applying product 10 minutes in advance helps it fully absorb into your hair.
  7. Refreshen makeup in a snap. Lightly mist your face with toner, then pat with a tissue. Finish up with a dusting of loose powder to seal everything back into place.
  8. A quick way to hide new growth or grey hair if you dont have time to get a color retouch. Simple use mascara if you have dark hair. For blondes or redheads try dusting your roots with eye shadow or bronzing powder then seal with hair spray.
  9. To get smoother result when shaving legs, wait until after your shower to shave. The steam softens hairs for closer shave and smoother results.
  10. Two tricks to stop flyaway hair. Spray Static Guard on your comb or brush.  Or you can yous a dryer sheet on your hair.

Today I would like to just say I find that going natural is okay but they fail to warn you about the process.  I have been natural and I will be honest when  I say its not for everyone. If you have very coarse(means thick strands) and tightly coiled hair, its not a pleasant feeling. No one tells you that bugs

HAIR: Indique Partner Stylist

Sleek straight hair without the damaging chemicals of the relaxers. Yes at firsts its like omg my hair is straight and can still go back to curls when wet. However,  after a few months of the process of flat irons and blow frying your hair, it starts to break and tangle. I was natural and decided to use the keratin products,  regular and even tried organic, both helped ruin my hair.

Some hair dressers say there is a easy and healthy way to using Keratin treatments, but just like safe sex.. its best to not do it at all.

I had to cut my hair off to let it grow back healthy.  In my opinion it would have been smarter to just get a relaxer. With relaxers you don’t have to flat iron your hair all the time. People who have naturally curly hair, after enough flat ironing will eventually loose their curl patterns.

Take it from me, Keratin is damaging!
