Now that we are approaching the warm weather season, one thing is clear: we have to start shaving our legs again. It is so nice to take a few days (okay weeks) off of shaving during the winter months. I am always looking for ways to cut down my shaving time/frequency, and here are the tricks that have served me well!

  1. Go against the grain: A easy trick to shave less is to shave
    against the grain of your hair. This ensures that you are getting the closest shave possible and saves you time by not having to go over the same spot twice!
  2. Exfoliate: To get a close shave every time you should exfoliate your skin often. This gets rid of the dead skin and also exposes any hairs that you may have missed.
  3. Condition: Use conditioner instead of shaving cream! Not only will it save you money, it also keeps your skin soft and healthy.
  4. Cut the carbs: The foods you eat can actually promote excess hair growth! Carbs do this. Cut back on the carbs to keep you hair from growing so you can shave less often.

Now you can have silky smooth legs all summer long!

How to Keep Your Hair from Looking Greasy

Some people’s hair is more oily than others. For those of us with oily hair, we know what a nuisance it can be and how insecure it can make us feel. Your hair type and the habits you keep can really impact how quickly it gets oily, so here are a few tips on how to keep the oil at bay as long as possible.

  1. Wash your hair less: I know it sounds crazy, but it is true. Your scalp is stripped of it’s natural oils when you wash it so it has to work overtime to produce more oils to keep your scalp healthy, causing them to overproduce. Washing every other day or k2-_58f0fc6c-3aae-4f3b-bc0f-8b25b94f9ae3.v1every few days can really help reduce your scalp’s oil production.
  2. Concentrate conditioner on the ends: Putting conditioner all over your hair can totally weight it down and cause oily roots, so concentrate conditioner from the middle to the end of your hair shaft.
  3. Invest in dry shampoo: I love dry shampoo. Like I LOVE it. It sucks the oil from your roots and leaves you with fresh smelling locks.
  4. Avoid touching your hair: Because your fingertips and face both produce oil that can easily be transferred to your hair, so avoid touching your hair. Also avoid hair styles where your hair is touching your face.
  5. Don’t straighten your hair too much: When you straighten your hair it lies close to your head, and the closer to your head it lies the closer it is to coming in contact with oil.

Hopefully these tips help you keep your hair grease free for longer!

Tricks and Tips to Avoid Split Ends and Breakage!

Split ends are such a drag!  They happen out of nowhere and leave your hair looking dull and flat.  There are so many products out there that claim to “fix” your split ends, but in the end it doesn’t do much.  Taking good care of your hair is the first step to preventing and banishing split ends for good.  By following these simple tricks and tips, your hair will be looking fabulous in no time!

  1. Be gentle when you brush your hair.  Start at the roots and work your way up to the scalp.  If you start at the scalp, you are more likely to rip hair out and cause breakage.
  2. Always condition your ends!
  3. Do not scrub and rub a towel through your hair to dry it.  When you rub the ends of your hair together it causes your hair to knot.  Instead, squeezeChelsea Crockett- drying hair with towel the ends to soak up the water.
  4. When straightening your hair use a comb to comb through each strand before going over it with the straightener.  Sometimes your hair can clump together and the heat will make it break.
  5. Start at the roots and wrap your hair around the curling iron when curling your hair.  When you start at the ends of your hair, the heat sits there the longest.  Try exposing the ends of your hair to the least amount of heat as possible.
  6. Blow dry your hair when necessary.  Let it air dry as much as possible!
  7. Don’t forget to get regular trims to keep your hair healthy!

Taking proper care of your hair is so important!  Although it might be a lot of work, the results are worth it.  Love your hair!

Love,

Chelsea

            Hey insiders!  Every girl wants to know how to get their hair soft, shiny, and most importantly, healthy.  With endless treatments of various shampoos and gels, it gets frustrating trying to find successful ways to treat your hair.  What girls don’t look for are the things you can do at home without expensive products.  Here are a few secrets to getting those healthy locks.Chelsea Crockett - Hair

            First, condition your ends each time your hair is damp or wet even if you don’t shampoo it each time you’re in the shower.  This helps with tangles and also keeps your hair moisturized.  I hate when my hair feels dried out, so this tip definitely solves the problem.

            Second, let your hair flow every once and a while.  Pulling back your hair on a daily basis creates damage and causes your strands to break.  If you’re the kind of person who relies on up-dos, try pinning your hair up with clips or pins.  Avoiding elastic bands will decrease the breakage in your hair.

            Lastly, monitor the amount of heat applied on your hair.  Too much of anything can be bad so avoid straightening or curling your hair every day.  Try putting it into a simple braid or, if you can, leave it natural.

            Along with these, there are many more secrets to discover in order to receive healthy, beautiful hair.  I hoped this helped and good luck!
