Tip Of The Day #3: Diffuse Those Curls Ladies!

Diffusers are a pretty nifty tool for any curly-haired beauty. The air force from a regular dryer is much too strong to keep your curls bouncy and in tact. What a diffuser does is help take the air force and spread it though out a wider surface area so that it’s still as warm, but just not as strong as a hair dryer with no add-on attachment. When I’m in a hurry, I find that blow drying my curls on a medium setting helps keep them frizz-less and bouncy. Another alternative is of course air drying, but the problem I find with air drying is as soon as I walk outside, my hair turns into a frizzy mess! I try to air dry as much as I can but my diffuser has turned into one of my best friends.

TIP OF THE DAY #2: STAY AWAY FROM 2 IN 1’s FOR THE SAKE OF YOUR HAIR!

For hair textures like my own (kinky/curly), you really want to keep the amount of times you shampoo to minimum. Unfortunately, using 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioners won’t really allow that. Our hair needs moisture 24/7 and shampooing everyday strips our hair of the natural oils that we need. Conditioners help replenish and basically acts as food for our beautiful locks. By avoiding shampooing with 2 in 1’s, you’re pretty much depriving your hair of the nutrients that it  needs; but if you condition everyday, you’re still (in a way) starving your hair of its food by consistently stripping it of it natural oils . It’s best to just use a separate shampoo on a weekly basis and and follow or use a condition on a daily basis.

TIP OF THE DAY #1: SATIN PILLOW CASES LADIES! THE EXTRA COMFORT IS WORTH IT!!

Surprisingly, cotton pillowcases can be a little more damaging to your beautiful locks than truly expected. Because cotton absorbs moisture, sleeping on a cotton pillowcase all night long can leave your hair feeling dry and brittle come morning time. Switching to satin not only helps eliminates that problem but since the material is so sleek, it allows your hair to move freely with tangling and snagging, which in turn helps give your hairstyle a longer lifespan.
