Thick, luscious locks are something every girl desires.  When it comes to hair, you can pretty much determine its color, style, etc., but one thing you can’t change is how thick or thin it is!  Although you can’t actually “change” it, there are certain things you can do to make it appear thick and beautiful! 

  • Switch your part to the opposite side.  Chelsea Crockett - Pancake BraidShifting your part can give the hair around your roots a little lift.  Since its not used to it, your hair will look thicker at the top!
  • Condition your hair before you shampoo it.  This is said to give your hair a more textured look.  Try it out!
  • “Pancake” your braid.  Pancaking your braid is a new technique that makes your braid look fuller like the picture on the right.  You basically tug and pull on your hair to loosen your braid after you’ve finished. 
  • Use mousse.  Mousse isn’t only a guy’s products ladies!  It works beautifully when trying to give your hair a little extra lift and texture.
  • Use dry shampoo even when your hair is clean.  As I’ve said before, texture can completely change the appearance of your hair.  Dry shampoo will give your roots an extra lift!

What tips would you add to the list?  Let me know and I’ll try them myself!

Reverse Hair Washing: What it is and Why It’s Good for You

There is a new beauty trend that is peaking my interest. It is called “reverse hair washing,” and it is exactly what it sounds like! The new trend is to wash your hair in the backwards order of what you usually do. Why in the world would you want to do that? Read on.

  1. Why: So the science behind reverse hair washing is to decrease the residue that is left on your hair from using conditioner.23225aacb011cce118adad8b82409c54 When we shampoo first and then condition, we usually don’t get all of the conditioner out, and when this happens it weighs your hair down. This can cause your hair to be limp and heavy and not hold a curl or volume.
  2. How you do it: Wet your hair completely. Then work conditioner throughout your hair and let it sit for a few minutes. Next, apply shampoo with the conditioner still in your hair. After lathering up, rinse it out like you normally would.

I have found that this method helps detangle my hair before I am even out of the shower. I wish I would have known about this when I had long hair!

XOXO, Chels

Are you Over Using Products?

Products are a girl’s best friend.  Whether its perfume to make us smell good, hairspray to keep our hair in check, sunscreen to protect our skin, or foundation to cover those pesky pimples, products keep us feeling and looking beautiful; but did you know that overusing products happens too often?  Most girls don’t know the proper amount of what they’re using.  I’ll break it down into an easy guide of how much to use for each of my favorite beauty essentials.Chelsea Crockett- quarter size of conditioner

  • Overdoing it on conditioner is easy, especially if your hair is really tangled; but using too much can cause your hair to be greasy! Next time, try using an amount the size of a quarter!
  • Spraying your hair too close can leave it looking stiff or clumped together. Spray your hairspray approx. 4-6 inches from your hair.
  • Never have your flat iron or curling iron above 350 degrees! No one wants burnt hair!
  • Sunscreen can be oily and clog pores. Don’t use more than the size of a nickel to cover your face.
  • Using too much liquid foundation can make you look “fake” or “cakey”. You only need about the size of a dime to cover your entire face. You’re pretty just the way you are!
  • If you use a foam styling product to make your hair curly or to give it volume, use an amount the size of an egg!
  • Never swipe your mascara more than 10 times or it’ll look clumped!

Using the proper amount of product is key to getting the most use out of your beauty essentials!

Keratin Hair Treatment: Is It Worth It?

Hello Ladies,

            Have you ever wished you had straight, shiny hair instead of your dull, curly, frizzy hair?  Many girls have been turning to keratin treatments at the salon in order to get this “perfect” hair.  This treatment has generated a lot of buzz, since it uses unhealthy chemicals such as formaldehyde.  You must weigh your options if you really want this treatment.  Is it worth it?Chelsea Crockett- keratin treatment

            Although the risks of getting a keratin treatment will not kill you, the potential of it harming you are definitely present.  This treatment can only be done a couple times a year…MAX.  You are exposing yourself to strong chemicals, which can irritate your scalp, skin, and eyes.  It can also cause lung damage from breathing in the chemicals.  If you think this treatment is right for you, find a salon with a formaldehyde-free solution.  Also, try wearing a mask so you don’t inhale the chemicals.

Of course, there is a positive side to keratin treatments.  Keratin is like an extremely strong conditioner.  It will make your hair silky smooth and extremely straight.  If you decide to get the treatment, you won’t be able to get your hair wet or style your hair in any way for 1-3 days.  If you put your hair in a ponytail it could create a crease that won’t go away.  Now THAT would be bad!

If you decide to do the keratin treatment on your hair, make sure you do your research.  Enjoy your new hair, but take proper care of it!

Love,

Chelsea

Hair conditioner is an everyday part of life.  You get in the shower, shampoo your hair, and then apply conditioner, right?  Conditioner is so important for silky smooth hair, but did you know it has a multitude of other benefits?  Surprisingly, there are multiple ways to use your conditioner not only for your hair, but for different beauty purposes as well!  Check out the new and unique ways to use your hair conditioner.

  • If you have a dry scalp, try a head massage with conditioner.  Get your hair wet with hot water (this can be done inside or outside of the shower), apply a generous amount of conditioner to your roots, and start massaging away!  Applying pressure will cause the natural oils in your hair to circulate and the conditioner to get deep down into your skin.  Goodbye dry scalp!
  • Fluff up your makeup brushes!  After washing your makeup brushes, rub in conditioner to the bristles and rinse out thoroughly.  This will make each brush much softer.
  • Defeat frizzy hair!  If your hair is frizzy on a particular day or it happens to be humid out, rub a small amount of conditioner into your hands as if it was lotion and pat down the frizzy parts of your hair.  The conditioner will help to tame pesky hair.
  • Use it as eye makeup remover!Chelsea Crockett- removing eye makeup
  • Add it to your next bubble bath!  Conditioner can act as a sort of moisturizing oil for the skin.  When you add the bubble bath to your next bath, add a small amount of conditioner as well.  This will make your skin extra soft.
  • Have you ever gotten a ring stuck on your finger?  With a dab of conditioner the ring will slide right off!
  • Conditioner can act as grease to unzip a jammed zipper.  Add a little to the zipper using a cotton swab and the zipper will come undone just like that!

Crazy how much conditioner can help you out in situations other than tangled hair!  Next time you need a quick beauty fix, see if conditioner can help you do the trick.  You may be surprised!

XOXO,

Hi Girls,

            Getting your haircut can be a nerve-racking process.  Whether you’re getting a trim or cutting it all off, it’s still a change.  Here are a few helpful tips for a worry free salon trip!Chelsea Crockett- hair lengths

  • Bring a picture!  There’s no better inspiration for a hair dresser than to see the vision herself!  This way you’ll be sure to get the cut, color, and style you want!
  • Ask about your shampoo and conditioner options.  Some salons just use the basics, but if you ask, they should be able to use a color treatment shampoo or sulfate free shampoo. 
  • Don’t be afraid to speak up if you don’t like what you see.  Many people feel like they will offend their stylist if they ask him/her to change or stop something.  It’s your hair and you want to like the end product.
  • When you’re finished with your cut and color, ask for style tips!  It never hurts to get a few cute and new ideas for your hair.  You can never have too many hair styles!
  • Make sure you keep up with your hair and get trims.  Dead ends make your hair look lifeless, dull, and dry.  Who wants that?!

Good luck with your next hair cut!

            Hey girlies!  L’Oreal is one of my favorite hair and makeup brands with its great quality and awesome products.  They’ve been in business for years, but I’ve just recently heard about their “Total Repair 5” hair treatment. 

            For full effect, it includes a shampoo, conditioner, and damage-erasing balm.  Even just the shampoo itself gives you already noticeable soft hair.  Each product in the treatment contains ceramide which is a type of lipid that benefits your hair.  Whenever you use a certain product that contains ceramide, it restores the natural properties of your hair, making it smoother and softer.  Without ceramide, your hair would be damaged and dry.

            Both the shampoo and conditioner worChelsea Crockett - Damage Erasing Balmk amazing, but the damage-erasing balm is where most of the magic happens.  It instantly repairs the five signs of damage: 1.Split Ends 2.Weak 3.Rough 4.Full 5.Dehydrated.  While you’re in the shower, all you have to do is message it through your hair and let it sit for 3-5 minutes.  It’s as simple as that!

            Another product of the series is the Multi-Restorative Dry Oil.  This is a daily leave-in treatment that works continuously throughout the day.  Apply this oil to damp hair and style your hair as you usually would.  This will make your hair shine and tame those unwanted flyaways!

            Good luck with those luscious locks!Wink
