How to Get Big Hair When You Have Naturally Fine Tresses

October 7th, 2013

Some of us are just born with fine, flat hair. But this decade has been pretty kind to us, all things considered. We haven’t had to use hot irons to flatten out our tresses when everyone else was desperately trying to get the straight, sleek look.

Even so, we always want what we can’t have, and a little more body would do our flat hairstyle wonders. Let’s take a look at how to get flippingly fabulous locks:

Be Gentle To Your Hair

You probably know what we’re about to say: lay off washing your hair so frequently! Twice a week is ideal, but if you’re a daily rinser, try to limit yourself to once every other day. Showering strips all the natural oils out of your hair, leaving it unhealthy and parched. If you’re prone to oily locks, dry shampoo is your new best friend.

Chill Out On The Heat

Allow your hair to air dry. The only time we’ll allow you to indulge in a little hot treatment is when it’s freezing outside and your hair is still wet from the shower (you’re late for work etc). Only pick up your hairdryer sporadically. That goes for all hot tools too.

Fine hair is so much more vulnerable to thermal damage, so you’re doing yourself no favours by grabbing those curlers. If you want to create more body by ringletting your tresses, pin curl or use rollers, like Gran used to do in the old days.

Go Natural

The best thing you can do for your hair is let it stay natural. Dyes, bleaches, and chemical treatments all trash your tresses. All your hair needs is a regular trim and a little TLC.

Eat Well

Pump your diet full of omega-3s and lean protein. That means lots of avocados and walnuts, plus a morning routine of multivitamins. Generally, eat healthily and exercise and you’ll be well on your way to sleeker, fuller locks.

Find Your Inner Zen

Stress immediately takes a hella lot of oomph out of your hair. Try to gently remove the stress out of your life through regular meditation, exercise, yoga, massages (particularly head massages that stimulate hair growth), and a lot of sleep. When you feel stress mounting, try to breathe through the emotion and regain control of the situation.

Protect It From The Environment

The outside world can be unforgiving on your hair. In summer, wear a sunhat to protect your tresses from the bright rays that damage it just as much as it damages your skin. In the winter, fall in love with a beautiful, knitted hat that will keep your hair from suffering from scandalously low temperatures.

Although swimming is a great way to keep fit, be aware of how detrimental the chlorine is on your tresses. Always wear a swimming cap, and try to master breast stroke, to keep the majority of your locks out of the water. Be sure to wash the chlorine out of your hair, as soon as you leave the pool.

Haute New Hairstyle: Naya Rivera

August 12th, 2013

Naya Rivera stepped out in full effect last night at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards in Hollywood. She kept the paparazzi in a frenzy in her leather bra-top and matching leather pants. Her gorgeous waves caught everyone’s eyes as they were glamorous without being too stiff or overdone. Her celebrity stylist Clyde Haygood used her Alice + Olivia leather outfit as inspiration for her loose wavy style. To recreate her look, step by step, read below:

Step 1 – Prep

  • Clyde applied Frizz-Ease Hair Serum Original Formula ($9.99 at drugstores) to Naya’s wet hair before blow-drying. “We wanted sleek, defined waves. We knew this serum would help give us the sleek, controlled style we were aiming to achieve and keep her hair frizz-free all night long.”

 

Step 2 – Style

  • Next, Clyde used a curling iron with a 1 ½ inch barrel. After wrapping each section around the iron, he pinned each curl with a duckbill clip and sprayed Frizz-Ease Moisture Barrier Firm Hold Hairspray (5.99 at drugstores) to set.

 

Step 3 – Perfect

  • Once the curls cooled, Clyde carefully brushed hair out and spritzed Frizz-Ease 100% Shine ($5.99 at drugstores) throughout for definition and added shine. “To replicate the look and feel of the leather outfit, we saturated Naya’s hair with as much of the shine spray as possible for that silky and smooth finish.”

Rihanna’s Gone Grey!

July 18th, 2013

Grey is the new black! Well at least that’s what Rihanna wants you to think. She recently snapped a few pics of her new hair color and posted it on Instagram. The grey-haired diva worked her new silver shade in a stunning manner that makes me think grey will no longer be looked upon as a color you need to cover up. I love how daring and bold she is when it comes to her fashion and beauty choices. She lives to push the envelope and does it so well! Keep it up Rih Rih!

Product Review: Dark and Lovely Au Naturale 10-in-1 Styles Gelee

May 16th, 2013

As the humidity begins to make its evil attack on the city of Atlanta, I can already feel my curls beginning to plump and frizz. As I continue to grow out my naturally curly/wavy hair, I am always on the hunt for frizz-fighting products that will help showcase my curl pattern while limiting the fuzzies. I recently had the opportunity to attend the Dark and Lovely Au Naturale Curls Rocks event here in Atlanta. Hosted by CurlyNikki and Keisha Knight Pulliam. There were hundreds of curly girls in attendance who got the chance to sample the products while sipping on mango-tinis and learning all about Dark and Lovely’s amazing new product line Au Naturale.

Being that sampling is one of the best aspects of attending hair care events, I got the chance to try out the 10-in-1 Styles Gelee. The lightweight creamy consistency works great with my texture. With Mango Oil and Bamboo Milk, this crunchless gel will keep your curls in place while maximizing the shine and definition. Another great reason to love this product is that it has an Anti-Shrinkage formula which will help you get the most out of your curls and coils. I love this product especially for the spring and summer when we tend to spend more time outdoors.

I highly recommend this product for all my curly girls!
