Hot rollers are perfect for hair types, especially the ones who just don’t want to curl! They give your hair body and bounce galore!!

To make that sexy hair last all night put hot rollers throughout your whole head. Once in your hair, let them fully cool. Just before you take out the rollers spray your hair with your favorite hairspray, then take out the rollers.

Run your fingers through your hair to make the look appear more natural and head out on the town!

shampoo hair upside-down…

August 17, 2009

This is super great for girls with thick hair, like me. Sometimes I have a hard time really shampooing my hair without tangling it all up. Shampooing it upside-down cleans all your roots really well and doesn’t tangle up your hair into a mess!

styling tools every girl should own…

August 14, 2009

Here is a basic list of styling tools every girls should have and some recommends of different brands to use:

Round Brush – Using about a 3-inch diameter round brush while blow drying will give your hair endless volume and bounce. I prefer a the non-bristle round brush. I always seem to tangling my hair up in the bristle brushes. 

How to use: Before blow drying, separate your into three horizontal sections. Begin with the bottom layer {secure the top two with a clip} by taking medium sections and wrapping them around the large round brush. Blast the area with your blow dryer heat, keeping the blow dryer over 5 inches away from the hair for about 10 second. Remove the heat and leave the hair around the brush for about another 10 seconds. Repeat until the section is dry and continue the same technique through your entire head of hair.

Straightener – This handy styling tool can be used to either straighten or curl your hair. A ceramic hair straightener is a must!!!! They sound expensive, but you can find some great straighteners for under $30!

Recommendation: I use Andis 1-inch Ceramic Multi Heat Straightener and I love it!! I bought mine at Wal-Mart.

1-1/4″ Curling Iron – This size curling iron is perfect for all hair lengths and thicknesses. I use this curling iron every time I curl my hair. I gives a nice soft, effortless curl to your locks like Kim Kardashian’s hair.

Recommendation: Sometimes a 1-1/4″ Curling Iron can be a little tricky to find, but believe me they are out there. I use the Satin Finish Ceramic Instant Heat 1-1/4″ Curling Iron (another one under $30!!).

Ionic Blow Dryer with Diffuser Option – The Ionic style blow dryers are great because they give your hair shine. The diffuser option is an essential part of your blow dryer. A diffuser can be used in so many different ways: you can enhance your natural curl, set pin curls, add lots of volume to your roots or just add overall body to your style. 

Recommendation: ConAir has really affordable and the next best thing to professional grade hair styling tools. I have hooked my whole family on the ConAir Ion Shine 1875 Styler. I love this blow dryer with a passion…kind of weird, I know. I have had the same style hair dryer for the 5 years and will never buy a different blow dryer. It’s quiet and lightweight, which is perfect when you have roommates and easy for traveling.

condition the {right} way

Wide Tooth Comb

Wide Tooth Comb Conditioner's Best Friend!

As I have said, I have really dry hair so conditioning is a very important part of my hair routine.

After shampooing my hair in the shower, I rub about a quarter size amount of conditioner through my hair. I focus on rubbing it into my ends and I avoid conditioning right up to the scalp (it makes hair greasy).

Once I have applied the conditioner, I comb through my hair using a wide tooth comb. Combing your hair helps the conditioner coat every strand evenly added moisture and super smooth, detangled hair.

It is very important to use a wide tooth comb because a comb with small teeth can pull at your hair, leaving it tangled and could even break off the ends of your hair.

What’s your secret to keeping your hair moisturized?
