Spring and summer are characterized by warm temperatures, great times with friends, fun adventures with family, and again, warm temperatures. Rising temps can do a number on our beauty regimen, making our hair frizzy and our makeup drippy. Here are a few tips on how to warm-weather-proof your look this season!

  1. Avoid sweaty styling: There is nothing worse than blowdrying your hair in the spring and summer and being a sweaty mess after your hair is finished drying. I mean, you JUST got out of the shower and you are already a sweaty mess. One way to avoid this is to apply deodorant to the back of your neck a few minutes before you blow dry.
  2. Update your dry shampoo techniques: In the summer, it is actually better to apply your dry shampoo at night. Spray your roots at night so that it can absorb the oil and sweat throughout the night.
  3. Aloe vera to the rescue: It is inevitable. You are bound to get a sunburn at some point this summer! Even when you apply it meticulously, you are bound to miss a spot. In anticipation, fill up an ice cube tray with aloe vera gel and keep it in the freezer for those days when you burn crisp.
  4. Sweat stains be gone: It is embarrassing to admit, but sweat stains accompany the warm weather. Squeeze lemon juice onto the sweat stains before tossing the clothes in the laundry. The acidity in the juice will take the stains right out.

Follow these tips and your look will be totally heat-proof!

Graduation Day Beauty Tips

When it comes to styling your graduation hair and makeup there are a few things you need to keep in mind: humidity, confidence, and the cap! The day is alllll about the cap. And that super stylish graduation gown ;). But mostly the cap. So, when you are styling your hair and makeup for the big day, you need to be aware of how the humidity will affect your handiwork and how best to accentuate that hat. Here are a few tips to help you along.

  1. Hair: When it comes to hair, you have to work around the hat. Usually styling your hair down is your best bet for hat-wearing activities. And, like I said earlier, humidity needs to be kept in mind. You will be in a hot, stuffy auditorium or gym for quite a while waiting for your turn to walk across the stage and get your diploma, and in that time your hair can go from sleek and chic to frizzy. Before styling your hair, use a shine serum to help tame frizz. Then after styling run a lightweight dry oil through your locks to prevent flyaways.its-graduation-day-kt47vg
  2. Makeup: Your grad cap will draw attention to your face, so be sure to use powder to prevent your skin from getting shiny and primer to prevent your makeup from running. Humidity can do not-so-great things to makeup. Also, accentuate your eyes! Use a dash of pearl shadow at the corners of your eyes to brighten them. Use a lip color that you are comfortable with, not something too crazy, and keep it simple. You want to be comfortable and confident in your graduation look! You will be taking tons of pictures and pictures last a lifetime, so you want to feel and look your best. 🙂

Good luck, grads!

Why to Sleep with Your Hair in a Bun

I have always been told to NEVERRR sleep with my hair up because it can cause breakage and for the hair to be brittle. I sleep in braids sometimes to wake up with wavy hair, and sometimes I go to bed with damp hair and wake up with awkward waves and flat spots. Contrary to popular belief, sleeping with your hair in a bun is actually pretty beneficial. dsc_0171Here is why!

Sleeping in a loose bun will prevent your hair from getting those awkward waves and flat spots mentioned above. It also helps prevent your locks from getting all tangled and frizzy while you sleep because it isn’t rubbing against your pillowcase. Also, sleeping with your hair in a bun can add a bit of extra volume and curl if you add texture cream to your damp locks before tossing them in a topknot and going to sleep. When you wake up you will have loose waves and volumized hair. It’s easier than sleeping in braids because it takes less time!

I may have to start sleeping in a bun! Will you be trying this out?

If you asked me what annoys me the most in the world, frizzy hair would definitely make the top 5 on my list. All I want is silky, shiny, flowy 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.frizzy-blonde-hair-400x400
  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, which = 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.

 

Kiss your frizzy hair goodbye!

Creative Ways to Use Hair Conditioner

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,

Chelsea
