Tips to Tame Frizzy Winter Hair

If you asked me what annoys me the most in the world, frizzy hair would definitely make the top 10 on my list. All I want is silky, shiny, flowey hair like you see in those Pantene commercials. Is that too much to ask? Part of it is my fault. When your hair is dry or damaged, it becomes frizzier and frizzier. I want to break up with my frizzy hair, and this is how I plan to do it.

  1. Turn down my hot tools: Using high heat on your hair can cause your hair cuticles to swell (= frizz) so turn the temp down for minimal frizz.fullsizerender-75
  2. Wash my hair less frequently: Washing your hair too often strips your hair if its natural oils and can make it dry out. Dry = frizz. Use dry shampoo to help your hair stay manageable between washes.
  3. Deep condition: Deep conditioners seal your hair cuticles and prevent humidity from getting to your hair. More moisture= less frizz.
  4. Use sulfate/alcohol free products: Sulfates dry the heck out of your hair, which causes it to soak up the humidity, and that = frizz. Alcohol swells the hair cuticle which = frizz, so look for products that are alcohol and sulfate free.
  5. Avoid touching my hair: Every time you touch your hair you are breaking up its natural pattern which can cause frizz. Running your fingers through it to detangle it is fine, but try and keep the finger combing to a minimum to prevent frizz.

Kiss your frizzy hair goodbye!

In Illinois, summers are so hot they will melt your face off. Or, should I say, melt your foundation off. High temps are beauty products’ worst nightmare. Luckily there are products out there that actually help you stay cool! Don’t go splashing water on your face to cool yourself down, ruining your makeup in the process. Here are just a few life-saving products that will help refresh you so you don’t feel suffocated by your makeup in the heat!

  1. Cucumber mist: Ever heard the phrase “cool as a cucumber”? Try a cooling cucumber mist when you are feeling toasty to help you feel fresh.s1782085-main-zoom
  2. Cooling rollerball: There is a product called “Milk Makeup Cooling Water” from Sephora that will help soothe hot skin. Roll it on the warmer parts of your body like your underarms or neck before stepping outside to help you feel cool.
  3. Use cooling sunscreen: Neutrogena has a product called “Fresh Cooling Mist Sunscreen” that protects you from the sun while also cooling your skin. Sunscreen that keeps you cool AND protected is a double win!
  4. Cool lips: Using minty lip products will keep your lips feeling cool and hydrated! I don’t know about you, but when my lips feel cool and refreshed, the rest of my body does too.

Stay cool, cuties!

I cannot tell you how many times dry shampoo has saved me. There is nothing better than a douse of dry shampoo when your hair is feeling yucky and you are in a pinch for time. There are 3 different types of dry shampoo that you can use to rescue your roots, and today we are going to talk about them all and how they differ so you can chose the one that works best for you!

  1. The usual, powdery spray: This is the type I typically use. It has a powdery feel and absorbs the oils in my hair. It is crazy easy to use and comes either odorless or with refreshing scents (which is my personal fav). The only downside to this kind is the white powdery residue that happens when you spray this stuff. If you have dark hair, the spray can stick out! There are many brands that work with dark haired beauties to eliminate this problem.Dove-dry
  2. Loose powder: This stuff is surprisingly easy to work with! All you do is shake a little bit onto your roots and work it into your hair until it is completely absorbed. Some people like this kind better than the spray because you have more control over how much product goes where.
  3. Paste: Dry shampoo in paste form not only works its oil absorbing magic, it also serves as a styling product! Double the awesome.

What’s your favorite kind of dry shampoo and what works best with your hair? I am glad there are so many different kinds, everyone’s hair is different so it is nice to have a choice!

Pore Filler: What it Is and What it Does

What is pore filler? What does it do? Well, to be honest, it does exactly what the name says, it fills your pores! I’ll explain what it is and why you need to give it a try.

What it is: Pore filler helps to erase the look of large pores. You smooth it on your face like you would a makeup primer before applying your face cosmetics.2503344

Why to use it: If you have large pores or just want to cover up your pores, this is for you. Using this can help smooth inconsistencies and large pores to help your makeup go on smoother. It also helps combat oily skin, because the larger your pores are the more oily your skin is!

The best products: NYX and Benefit Cosmetics both have great pore fillers. Baby Skin also has one called “Instant Pore Eraser” that I have used and definitely recommend. Pore fillers can actually be pretty pricey, so my recommendation is to either ask for a sample or buy the smallest bottle you can so that if it doesn’t work for you, you aren’t stuck with a whole bottle of it!

Try it out and see what you think! Comment below if you have ever used pore fillers and what you thought of them.

You can literally wash your face while chilling in bed watching Gilmore Girls.
  3. Sea salt spray: Sea salt spray doesn’t need to be expensive! Cheap ones do the trick just fine. If you are looking for texturized beachy hair, grab one of these from the drugstore! It is a must for any beauty arsenal.
  4. Charcoal bar: These bars are magic! If you are dealing with breakouts, charcoal soap is just what you need. It de-gunks your pores to help keep your face black head free!

Happy drugstore hunting!
