Cool ponytail holders (or what ever you like to call them) + headbands

17 Jul

I’m back!  Sorry I was away for a while, I will try to post as often as I can now that I am back!

I recently found a great type of hair ties that can double as bracelets.  These ties are gentle on your hair, and are super cute!  Most companies  also make these in a headband size.  I found a sets of these at Anthropologie, and they had printed and glitter ones (see below)!  Many different companies make these, and they are available in a wide array of colors.

from Alex and Isabelle hair ties, $2 for 1

(other colors) from Anthropologie, $12 for 5

Hair and Chlorine

25 Apr

Summer is right around the corner, and I bet most of you are excited to go swimming.  The one thing I most dislike about swimming is the chlorine makes my hair so dry and unmanageable!  And, if you have blond or light hair your hair also probably starts to get a little green.  That is not from the chlorine, but from the copper in the pool.  Even though it isn’t actually the chlorine, you can still protect your hair when in chlorinated water.  Here are some tips:

*Wet your hair before going into the pool

*If your hair is already green, mix some baking soda into your shampoo

*Always use a swim shampoo after going in chlorinated water (my favorite is UltraSwim chlorine removal shampoo)

I hope you found these helpful!





P.S.  Make sure to look at the edit I made on my healthy tanning post (baby oil)!

Waterfall Braid

24 Mar

My favorite new hair trend is the waterfall braid!  Here is a picture of what it looks like:

I think this would look especially good with highlights. This is really easy to do once you figure it out, and it could work on all hair types, as long as your hair isn’t super short.  At the bottom of the post there is a link to the best video I could find.  Feel free to ask me any questions you have!

Hair Care Tip!

20 Feb

Hey!  FYI I am on school vacation this week, so I will try to post as offen as I can, but that might not always be possible.

This week my hair stylest told me that you were suppost to change your shampoo and conditioner every 8-12 months.  I have been using the same shampoo and conditioner for 4 years, so I need to change it up.  I have been using Neutrogena Triple Moisture Cream Lather Shampoo and Triple Moisture Daily Deep Conditioner ($5.99 each), and they work really well for my thick hair.  But, now I am on the search for a new brand of shampoo/conditioner.  PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE comment/email if you can recomend a brand!
