Hair and Beauty week: Day#4


This box hold my hair coloring magic. No, I dont have highlights/lowlights.... Nope, I dont use multiple colors... all I do is pop open like 5 of these boxes and get to work. Now, what sucks is that one store normally doesn't have 5 boxes of the same color at one time, SOOOOO that means that I am always collecting them.. but its worth it! Shout out to Dark and Lovely, love you guys and thank you for making such a fabulous hair color.

Dont laugh... this is the only "shower cap" that fits all this curly hair.

Ladies and Gentlemen, this is why you MUST MUST MUST press and cut your curly hair. I suggest that you do this every 3 months though I HAVEN'T done it in over a year. Slapping myself on the hand!!!

FRONT (Bangs?)
Trim, trim trim... the key to healthy looking hair... rather you wear it curly or straight is to keep your ends from looking raddy-taddy.

The Straightening precess:

If your an occasional or daily presser the idea to use as little heat as possible. Direct heat is harsh on hair.
  • When you are blow drying your hair, only blow dry is half way. Allow your hair to air dry until completely dry. This, believe it or not adds shine and body to your hair, it also cuts down on the amount of heat directly on your head.
  • Once hair is dry, section into 4 parts and work each part separately. Make sure your hair is clean. I use a drop of heat protector, my favorite is Chi Silk Infusion.
  • Now, if you have a real strong curl pattern like mine you are going to want to press your roots with the back on a pressing comb to insure that every section of hair is getting Linkpressed. I do not suggest using your kitchen stove for pressing because you can not truly control the temp of the comb. Its best to use an oven for even heating.
  • Once you go through each section with the pressing comb (if needed) then go back through with a flat iron so that you can make your hair smooth.
  • After using your pressing comb clean it in a solution of Apple cider vinegar and water and allow it to air dry. The comb gets clumps for yuk on it and needs to be cleaned after every use.
What your favorite hair coloring product?

I use the same hair color but my hair is so dark it never turns out the blonde on the box. Love your color! And yes, trims are so important.

I can't use permanant dye because no matter what, it takes my hair out. (insert pout)...

But I've found some great semi-permanant. I like Natural Instincts and Adore by Creative Images. I don't know if it's because I have a ton of gray or what but my hair always looks like it's been dyed.
