Now that my hair is starting to grow out, I have been looking for different ways to style my hair. Most days I wear a ‘fro or I will pull it up into a puff. I have gotten a little bored with those two styles and want to try something different. Being that my hair is at a bit of an awkward length, it is hard to find styles suitable for my hair.
Deep conditioners are a regular part of my natural hair regimen. Now that we are approaching the fall/winter season deep conditioning is especially important because the cooler temperatures can wreak havoc on our hair. Deep conditioners restore moisture to hair, help maintain elasticity, strengthens hair strands, restores your hairs natural sheen, and helps to prevent and/or reverse damage.
The type of deep conditioner you use on your hair will depend on your hair’s needs.
Dryness tends to be a common problem among those of us with natural hair. I have type 4C hair, and my hair can get very dry at times. Because of my hair texture, it can tend to look dull as well. When your hair is kinky, it is harder for the natural oils in your scalp to travel to your hair strands. This will cause your hair to look dull and less shiny.
If your hair is prone to dryness, with proper care and treatment, you can revitalize your mane.
When it comes to wearing makeup, I like to keep things simple. Most days I only wear lip gloss and a little blush. There are times when I do like to get a little fancy tho’, and that means that my full face, including highlighter, must be on point.
Here are 5 of my favorite beauty hacks:
1. Exfoliate Your Lips
No one wants to deal with dry, flaky, chapped lips. To exfoliate your lips, add a dab of vaseline or chapstick to your lips, take a wet toothbrush and use circular motions to gently remove dead skin.
Afterwards, use a tissue or damp washcloth to wipe away the flakes. You’ll have perfectly smooth lips in no time.
We all know that daily skin care is important, right? Our skin is the largest barrier that we have to protect us from infections. Healthy skin also helps us to age gracefully.
Some of us are under the misconception that you need the most expensive cleansers, moisturizers, and latest tools in order to properly achieve healthy skin. That, however, is not true. Your daily regimen does not have to include a ten or twelve step process
Let’s face it, beards have become all the rave now. Whether you are a man who loves to wear them or a woman who loves men who love to wear them, one thing is for certain – beards have definitely become a sex symbol.
This rugged fashion statement has gained a huge amount of traction over the past few years, and honey, I am definitely here for it!
