5 Best Styling Products for Curly Hair

Growing up I hated my thick, curly hair. I wore it long for years just to weigh it down. I didn’t know how to take care of it, let alone style it. I dreaded my mom running the comb through my hair at night to get out all the tangles. After spending my teenage years fighting with a flat iron and a multitude of straightening products, I finally gave up and decided to embrace my curly hair.

Styling curly or wavy hair isn’t difficult as long as you have the right products. In fact, it’s much easier and takes less time than working against what nature gave you. Here are the five best styling products for curly hair that will help you embrace the hair you were born with.

Living Proof Curl Defining Style Cream

This is the most recent styling cream that I’ve tried and I have to say I’m pretty impressed with the results. Usually I have to use a pomade to tame the frizz after diffusing my hair, but I don’t need to when I use this stuff. It enhances my curls and helps me achieve the overall shape that I want–no triangle head for me.

Here are the five best styling products for curly hair that will help you embrace the hair you were born with. 5 Best Styling Products for Curly Hair - Tipsaholic.com #hair #hairproducts #curly #curlyhair #beauty #hairstyling #curlyhairstyle #curlyhairstyling

Bed Head On the Rebound Curl Re-Call Cream

If you want to make your curls or waves bounce, this styling cream will do the trick. Use anywhere from a nickel to a quarter size amount depending on your hair length. Then, twist your hair into sections all the way around your head. Finally, blow dry with a diffuser. You’ll have ringlets that last all day!

Biolage Styling Gelée

Thick, curly hair runs in my family and this gel is my mom’s favorite. It’s great for every length of hair and smells like walking into a fresh garden. Stronger than your average styling cream, this gel is great to use if you want more structure and a firmer hold. I like to use it if I’m going to let my hair air dry because it tends to keep my hair from poofing out and losing its shape.

Aveda Be Curly Curly Enhancer

I love Aveda products for their natural ingredients and commitment to the environment. Their Be Curly line does a great job enhancing natural curls while moisturizing your thirsty hair. The Curly Enhancer is a styling cream that can be used alone or combined with the Be Curly Style Prep, which helps infuse moisturizer and define your curls even more. For optimum results, blow dry your hair with a diffuser.

Aveda Brilliant Anti-Humectant Pomade

If I could only have one hair product in my arsenal, this pomade would be it. I’ve used it on wet and dry hair to achieve both curly and straight styles. It’s lightweight and tames frizz like nobody’s business without being greasy or sticky. Thick or thin, curly or straight, this product is one no lady (or gentleman for that matter) should be without.

5 Questions to Ask Yourself Before Getting a Pixie Cut

Deciding to get a pixie cut is a big decision. Celebrities like Michelle Williams, Anne Hathaway, and Jennifer Lawrence—just to name a few–are all famous for chopping off their precious locks. There seems to be a certain sense of power and freedom that comes from making such a bold style move.

I’ve had varying hair lengths throughout my life, but last spring I decided to go shorter than I ever had before. That’s right ladies, I’m talking about the alluring yet frightening choice to get a pixie cut. Before my pixie cut (shown below on the left), I had kept my hair somewhere between shoulder and chin length for several years—I’d never cut it above my ears.

To help you decide if now is the right time, here are five questions to ask yourself before you get a pixie cut. 5 Questions to Ask Yourself Before Getting a Pixie Cut - Tipsaholic.com #pixie #pixiecut #haircut #shorthair

Ultimately, I decided that the pixie cut wasn’t my best look and have since started to grow my hair out (current photo above on right). But, I don’t regret my decision at all. In fact, it’s my personal opinion that every woman should be bold and try the pixie cut at least once. To help you decide if now is the right time, here are five questions to ask yourself before you get a pixie cut.

How drastic of a change am I ready to make?

This is the key question to ask yourself before yielding to your stylist’s scissors. A pixie cut will be unlike any other cut you’ve gotten in the past, especially if you’ve been a long-haired girl for years. If there are already a lot of changes happening in your life, it might be best to hold off until things have settled down.

Why do I want a pixie cut?

For me, it was all about the need for a change and being ready to try something completely out of my comfort zone. I’d wanted to take the plunge for a couple years but didn’t have the guts to do it until last spring. I started talking with my stylist about how my hair would look in pixie cut a few haircuts prior to actually doing it. That helped us both determine when I was ready.

What new products and tools will I need to invest in?

This is an important topic to discuss with your stylist. He or she knows your hair best and will help you pick out the right products and tools. For example, if you currently have shoulder length or longer hair and routinely use a 1-inch curling iron to achieve effortless beach waves, chances are that curling iron won’t do your pixie cut much good. With my cut, adding a pomade was the most important investment for me.

Am I prepared to go through the awkward grow out phase?

Most women I know, including myself, look to celebrities for their hair inspiration. What we often fail to remember is that celebrities have endless funds and staff to help them achieve amazing hair results. They can transition from a pixie cut to a long, thick ponytail in no time thanks to expensive hair extensions. for us ladies in the real world, growing your hair out takes time and the in-between stages can be frustrating (headbands and bobby pins are your best friend).

If I hate my new cut, how will I cope with it?

This is another very important question to ask yourself before you make that hair appointment. If you’ve never made a drastic hair change, I wouldn’t recommend cutting it all off at once. Make the transition over a period of a few months so it’s not such a shock to your system. But if this isn’t your first rodeo and you find changing your look empowering, go for it and don’t look back.

If you can answer all of these questions and your resolve is still firm, you’re ready to join the pixie ranks. Now go make that hair appointment with your stylist ASAP!

5 Reasons to Go Short

Still undecided about whether or not to cut your luscious locks? Here are 5 excellent reasons you may want to give a short haircut a try. 5 Reasons to Go Short - Tipsaholic. #shorthair, #haircut, #hairstyle, #hair

Chopping off your hair can be a monumental decision.  Long hair is seen as a feminine trait – one that is often considered sexy and alluring.  It can also be a woman’s security blanket, how she identifies as beautiful, or simply something that feels as necessary as any appendage.  Taking scissors to your mane may require courage, but there are some definite advantages to having short locks.  If you’ve been toying with the idea of transitioning to a bob or going all out with a face framing pixie, here are 6 reasons to try a short haircut.

 

1. Your face.  That’s right.  It’s time to show it off!  Short styles are the easiest, most assured way of displaying your facial features for all to see!  If you do a search of short hair styles online, you’ll quickly realize that nearly all face shapes are flattered by some sort of short style – whether it’s a super textured, asymmetrical crop for those with fine, delicate features or a cute pixie that slims your apple cheeks and draws attention to your eyes.  Nearly all short cuts are slimming, and with your hair literally framing your face you’ll put your best features on display.

 

2. Money Saver.  It’s true.  There’s no denying that a short style goes through way less shampoo, conditioner, gel, hairspray or any other hair product.  It takes a lot less upkeep and you won’t need to spend as much to make it look awesome.

 

3. Time Saver.  Honestly, this might be the top reason for any busy woman juggling multiple responsibilities!  You can spend an hour each morning washing and styling your long locks, and even longer for special occasions.  Short hair has a sort of carefree ease – some styles don’t even require daily styling!  If you’re looking for something that’s easy to do, different than the normal ponytail, and will take literally minutes each morning a short cut may be the way to go.

 

4. Changing it up.  Perhaps you’ve had the same style for 15 years.  Perhaps you’ve just encountered a major life-changing event.  Perhaps you’re just tired of of the maintenance (see above!).  Whatever the case, everyone needs a change once in a while.  Obviously, chopping your hair off might not meet that need for every individual, nor is it the only way to inject change into your lifestyle.  But it can be an amazingly freeing change that gives you a needed boost.

 

5. Fresh start.  Let’s face it.  Hair gets damaged.  Especially long hair.  Heat styling, curling, drying, washing, sticky products, not to mention dyeing or highlighting – it all takes its toll.  I’m not implying that you need to chop your magnificent mane to rid yourself of a few split ends, but if your hair is overly dry and damaged, a chic, sophisticated cut can give you a fresh start – much like a blank canvas.

 

If you chop off your hair why do you do it?

5 Braid Hairstyles

If you have medium to long hair there are so many ways to wear your hair. An easy and intricate way to do your hair is with braids. Here are 5 Braids to try. 5 Braids Hairystyles via tipsaholic.com #braids #hair #hairstyles

5 Braid Hairstyles

The braided hairstyle is making a comeback. The best part is it keeps long hair from turning into fly away hair, while adding sophistication to any hairstyle. So channel your inner Katniss Everdeen and check out these 5 braid hairstyles.

 

Multi-Braided Bun

Section hair and create four braids, two braids using hair from the sides, starting at the top, and two braids from the bottom middle portion of the hair. Simply wrap one of the middle section braids into a bun, and then twist the other middle braid around the bun. Take the two side braids and add them to the bun, leaving a portion of the two braids visible along the sides of the head. Secure the bun with bobby pins.

 

Braid Integrated into a Bun

Divide hair into a front and back section. Gather the back section into a ponytail and secure with an elastic band. Take one section of the front portion of hair and two sections of hair from the ponytail and braid it together. Continue braiding and added in more sections of hair from the ponytail and the front portion as the hair curves around the head into a large bun. Finish braiding any hair left and tuck into the bun. Add a pin to keep the ends in place.

 

Wrap Around Braid

Braid the sides of hair on both sides. Leave the rest of the hair down. Add a few soft curls for a romantic vibe. Cross the two braids around the back of the head, tuck the ends under and pin into place.

 

Fishtail Braid

Separate hair into two sections. Take a skinny piece of hair from the outside of one section of hair, and cross it over to the other section of hair. Merge the skinny piece with the hair; do not leave it separate. Next take another skinny piece of hair from the outside of the other section of hair, and move it together with the first section of hair. The skinny pieces should now look like an x in the hair. Repeat until the braid is complete.

 

Waterfall Braid

This creates a braid around the head with the rest of the hair remaining down. Starting near your hairline on one side begin with three piece of hair like you are going to do a French braid. Braid the hair for about a few inches then drop the middle piece to hang down with the rest of your hair, at about your part line grab another piece of hair to replace it. Repeat braiding a few inches, dropping a piece of hair to blend in with the rest of your hair, replacing it with another piece of hair, and continuing. When you get to your opposite ear, do a normal braid for about an inch, and then secure in place with a bobby pin.

And for those of you with longer hair, try out this hairstyle. Create a high ponytail and secure with an elastic band about an inch lower than normal. Part hair right above the elastic band, and flip the ponytail through. Fold the ponytail in half into a loop and secure the ends with pins against the head, underneath the top fold of hair. Make sure the hair stays sleek by adding some hairspray.

 

Long Ponytail

This hairstyle keeps the hair off your face, but still allows your hair to have a little flow. Create two ponytails one high on the head and one closer to the nape of the neck, one directly above the other. Make some soft curls in the hair to add volume and texture. From the back, this will make your hair seem much longer than it really is.

 

Side Braid

This one is fast and easy. Make a haphazard part in your hair. Braid hair to one side of your head, and secure with an elastic band at the bottom. Pull out a few face framing features to add to the style.

 

Long and Straight

Sometime simplest is best. Simply leaving hair down could be the best way to go. To keep it professional, avoid out of control curls, and keep the look polished and straight. The use of a flat iron could be a benefit for this style.

recipes you can personalize header

 

Young Living Essential Oils offer a myriad of benefits, including immune-boosting power, increased longevity and energy, and better mental health.  They’re a natural alternative to common medications and other first aid items and are safe for the whole family.  You can use therapeutic grade essential oils in everything from shampoo to sanitizing spray!  Wondering how?  Take a look at these 5 essential oil recipes, each with alternative oil ideas that can be used for different effects.  It’s easy to personalize your DIY essential oil products for you and your family!

 

1. Lip Balm

Basic recipe: 1 Tablespoon Beeswax, 1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil, 1 teaspoon Vitamin E Oil, 5-8 drops of essential oils.  Method: Melt the beeswax and coconut oil together in a double broiler and stir it well. Remove from heat and add the Vitamin E and essential oils.  Stir well.  Pour into a tube or container and seal.

EO’s (essential Oils) to Add:

Lemon Oil – for a light, citrus flavor and scent that is revitalizing and energizing and purifying and antioxidant qualities.

Peppermint – for a strong, fresh scent and a minty taste that can support liver and respiratory function and increase concentration and mental sharpness.

Lavender – for a sweet, soothing aroma that refreshes and can restore balance and aid in relaxation.  It can also help to soothe and heal chapped, irritated lips.

 

2. Sanitizing Spray

Basic recipe: about 4 oz Witch Hazel with aloe, 1 oz Water, 35-40 drops of essential oils.  Method: Use a glass spray bottle.  Place the essential oil drops in first, then the water, then fill the rest of the bottle with witch hazel to the top.  Place the lid on and shake vigorously to combine.  You may want to shake a bit before each use. (This sanitizing spray is ideal for hands, shopping carts, steering wheels, etc.)

EO’s to Add:

Purification – for a light, neutralizing aroma that can help to cleanse from impurities and soothe skin.

Thieves – for a spicy, musky smell that is well-known for anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and cleansing properties that helps to boost immune system health.

Melaleuca – for an earthy aroma that has all the cleansing properties of Tea Tree Oil and can help to purify and support skin health.

 

3. Deodorant

Basic recipe: 1 Cup Coconut Oil, 1/4 Cup Shea Butter, 1 Cup Aluminum-Free Baking Soda (or Arrowroot Powder), 30-40 Drops of essential oils, deodorant tubes.  Method: Melt the coconut oil and shea butter, stirring until combined.  Remove from heat and add the baking soda (or arrowroot powder).  Mix well.  Add the essential oils.  Use a glass bowl with a spout or a small funnel to pour the mixture into the deodorant tubes and allow it to solidify before using.

Note: you may want to use a combination of essential oils to equal 30-40 drops in order to create the scent and get the desired benefits.  For instance, Thieves, Purification and Melaleuca oils all have purifying and antibacterial properties that would be perfect for deodorant, and you can combine with a number of your favorite oils for aroma.

EO’s to Add:

Lemongrass – for a light, citrusy aroma with earthy undertones that is refreshing and rejuvenating.  It also promotes balance and can improve mental clarity.

Blue Cypress – for a spicy, natural scent that can aid in regulated breathing.  It is known to support the bodies natural response to skin irritation and injury and can promote healing.

Geranium –  for a springlike, flowery scent that is both uplifting and calming.  It boosts skin health and supports the circulatory system, and can revitalize body tissues.

 

4. Foot Scrub

Basic recipe: 1 Cup Epsom Salt, 1/4 Cup Olive Oil, 1 Teaspoon Liquid Castile Soap, 15-20 Drops of essential oils.  Method: Mix all the ingredients together in a glass bowl.  Store in an airtight container.  Use for exfoliating feet, rinse thoroughly.

As with the deodorant above, you may want to combine other oils with either Thieves, Purification or Melaleuca oils due to their cleansing and antibacterial properties.

EO’s to Add:

Eucalyptus – for a gentle and refreshing aroma that can energize as it revitalizes.  It has cooling properties and is very nonirritating.  

Joy – for a luxurious and exotic aroma that energizes and uplifts.  It can inspire romance, togetherness and an overall feeling of well-being.

Angelica –  for a light and soothing scent that can restore happy memories and calm anxiety.  It also relaxes nerves and muscles and releases tension.

 

5. DIY Shampoo

Basic recipe: 1/2 Cup Liquid Castile Soap, 1/4 Cup Canned Coconut Milk, 1/4 Cup Honey, 2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil, 2 Tablespoons Vitamin E Oil, 40-50 Drops of essential oils.  Method: Mix all ingredients together in a bottle with a lid.  Shake well before each use – lather, rinse.

Again, use any combination of oils to achieve the scent and cleansing properties you desire.  Melaleuca, Purification, Rosemary and Lavender all promote skin and hair health and are known for cleansing and soothing properties.  Thieves is also a strong cleanser and boosts immune system health.  Use these in combination with other oils to get the results you want.

EO’s to Add:

Spearmint – for a soft minty, slightly fruity scent that is a rich antioxidant.  It supports nervous system health and has restorative properties that can lead to a sense of balance and well-being.

Clary Sage – for a mellow, warm, herbaceous scent that is uplifting and relaxing.  It supports healthy mental and emotional states.

Grapefruit – for a fresh, citrusy aroma that is energizing and has mood-enhancing properties.  It is a powerful antioxidant and is very nourishing to skin and hair.

5 Prom Hairstyles

Prom is coming up. Once you find the perfect dress, complete your look with the perfect prom hairstyle. Here are some ideas to get you started. 5 Ways to wear your hair to prom via @tipsaholic #hair #prom #promhair #hairstyles

5 Prom Hairstyles

Prom is often the big event for the school year. The dress is perfect and the shoes are just right. Now a great prom hairstyle is needed to complete the look. These 5 hairstyles will make any one feel like a queen on Prom night.

 

One Sided Look

This is the right prom look for a soft style that lets your hair down, while still keeping it in place after a night of dancing. Start with curled hair for a voluminous and textured style. Gather hair to one side and keep draped over the shoulder. Secure with pins along the back of the head.

 

Bun On Top Look

For a polished look that keeps your hair off your shoulders, try this hairstyle. Put hair in a large bun on the top of the head. Make sure hair is slicked down with no fly a ways. Add a thin headband to the front, to complete the look. Choose a headband with a material that color coordinates with your dress or something with rhinestones to add some sparkly to your style.

 

Half Up Half Down Look

This look gives you the best of both worlds. Start by teasing the roots at the crown to add texture and volume to your hair. Take the side pieces of hair, twist, and secure together at the back of the head with pins and some hairspray. Add curls to the rest of the hair with a large barrel curling iron. Let them lie loose, while trailing down your back.

 

Braided Look

This can add a sweet, romantic style to any prom look. Braid both side portions of hair. For the back section of hair gather into a ponytail and secure with an elastic band. Twist the ends of the braid around the elastic band to hide it. Add jeweled pins or hair accessories every few inches along the braids on both sides.

 

Let It Flow Look

As with most things, sometimes simplest is best. Just let your hair fall naturally down. It can either be worn straight or curly. Whatever you decide, because, after all prom, is your chance to look your best in whichever way you choose.
