My Hair

Happy Thursday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you all what my newish hair cut. It’s something I had been thinking about doing for a while and I finally just took the plunge and chopped my hair. Often times I get people asking how can you just be so sure about cutting that many inches off. The answer is I needed change and hair WILL GROW back. I suggest you make sure you absolutely love the haircut style you choose and the regret will be minimal. If you are curious what I asked for it’s a angled bob with my longer layers in the front. This gives my hair a bit more dimensions.

Also, the best part about this haircut is that I can still curl it for a fancier style. Which is a win in my book.

When was the last time you cut your haircut? & How drastic was it?

Have a great day! See you all tomorrow!

Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Moisture Renewal Deep Conditioner

Happy Monday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you a review on this relatively new hair product that I have been trying out for over a month. I wanted to try and use up most of the product before I reviewed it. As you all know I absolutely love a good hair mask. I try and be economically savvy when it comes to how much money I spend on hair products. I’m not in a place in my life where I can fork over 20+ dollars on shampoo or conditioner. I like to keep things relatively at a low cost and that means I use deep conditioner to keep my hair healthy, and soft.

Product Detail:

-Perfect for extra dry hair.

– It delivers healthy hydration to transform every strand into pure silk.

This product smells really pleasant and clean. It has a consistency kind of like yogurt and a palm size amount is sufficient to cover medium length hair. This deep conditioner is designed to sit on your hair for only 3 minutes and it rinses out without much trouble from your hair.

I will be complete honest and say that this product doesn’t feel as hydrating as the Aussie 3 minute miracle deep conditioner which I have used for years now. It’s also not as thick as the Aussie one. I think if you aren’t looking for a super hydrating deep conditioner this maybe a good one to check out. I alternate between this Pantene and the Aussie deep conditioner.

Have you tried this Pantene 3 minute miracle deep conditioner? What are your thoughts?

Any other affordable deep conditioners you would recommend? 

Have a great day!

My Favorite Hair Products

IMG_0515

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today I am sharing my top hair products I cannot live without! This list of hair products has been in the making for a few years. I have tried so many products and have found a few that I love and many that just didn’t work out for me.

I am excited to have this list  of products since I feel like my hair isn’t too difficult to deal with, but a little help from a product when it comes to styling is a must for me. My hair is straight and a bit oily after I have second day hair. I air dry my hair and sometimes I do blow dry it when I am in a hurry. I have never colored my hair so it’s always been au natural.

The first product is my all time favorite dry shampoo. Batiste has knocked all other off the grid. Occasionally I will use a different one and I always seem to come back to this one, because it’s simply amazing.

The next product is my all time favorite deep conditioner. I use this Aussie 3 minute miracle conditioner every other day (or when I wash my hair). This keeps my hair feeling soft and it helps it remain healthy without breaking my bank.

For the day that I want to heat style my hair I use either one of these heat protectants. I have a drugstore option which is the TRESemme Thermal Creations Heat Tamer. If I have an extra couple of bucks I will splurge on the Blow Pro heat is on protective daily primer. Both are amazing at protecting  my hair from heat damage.

This product is definitely not a necessity, but when I want my hair to look extra shiny I spray this Oro Fluido Shine Spray. This is the perfect way to finish a hair style not only does it make your hair look incredibly healthy it adds a healthy shine that people will notice.

I feel like oils have been super popular these past couple of years. I use this coconut oil after I get out of the shower and it makes my hair super soft and it works as a conditioner to have soft manageable hair. This product smells amazing and it’s a nice little treat for your hair.

IMG_0526

I hope you all enjoyed my favorite hair products. I know this is a very personal topic because everyone’s hair is very unique and different. These are the products that work for me and I just wanted to share them with you.

What is your favorite hair product?  

Have a great weekend! I will see you on Monday!

This is going to be a quick post. I had an allergic reaction last night, but I didn’t want to go without posting today! I want to say a huge Thanks you to everyone who has followed my blog I reached 150 followers! To some that may be a small number, but to me that is more than I could have dreamed of.

I also got a hair cut, nothing big just 5 inches chopped off. I will talk more about what I like and dislike about my short hair. Hope you have a great Monday!

Happy Friday Everyone!
The start of March has been treating me well and I’ve decided to embark in a project called use & toss. Basically this is just a way to motive myself to use up a selected fee products in the next 90 days (3 months). I’ve been wanting to declutter my vanity and have more room, but I can’t throw away a product. If I paid money for it trust me it will be used!

New Hair

Every once in a while I decide I am ready for a change. Most likely I will decide to go and get a hair cut. Hey I am not talking about a major change now ;). This time I decided I would go back to my roots, ugh I mean bangs. This may not be for everyone but I like them and they will do for now!

And here are some sillier ones. I couldn’t resist posting these 🙂

What do you do when you need a change? Have you ever had bangs? Did you love them or hate them?
