Glamour Puss- How to Create the Perfect Curls

If there is one look that screams Hollywood glamour it has to be gorgeous tumbling curls. From Madonna to Sarah Jessica Parker, curls have been very popular with celebs on the red carpet and what’s more the look is easy to achieve at home.

You don’t need loads of fancy styling tools; instead you can use you ghds to create gorgeous curls. The beautiful thing about ghd hair stylers is because they have a rounded barrel they can be used to create curls as well as straight hair.

In order to curl your hair you need to section it – the easiest way to do this is to use your finger to section of a line of hair and clip that out of the way. Then if you need to, further separate out your hair; the number of sections will depend on how thick your hair is.

Once you have separated your hair into sections you can need to spritz those sections with styling spray. Then place your ghd stylers at the roots of each section and simply rotate it 180 degrees, gliding it slowly through the hair. Once this has been done catch the curl and in order to increase the curl you can twist it round your finger. For a really natural look you can alternate the way you rotate the styler – either towards the head or away from it. If you only want to curl the bottom half of the hair simply smooth the GHDs through the top half of the hair and start the curling process wherever you want to.

If you want separated and dishevelled curls you can run your fingers through the curls once they have been styled. This will define the curls and make them loose and separated, and most of all natural.

Once you have your finished curls spray them with a finishing and fixing spray in order to hold them in place for gorgeous bouncy curls. What’s more, you will need only one easy hair styler; you don’t need to get a curling tong or another hair styling device but instead can create sexy curls with a ghd styler.

You can find more hairstyle tips online at the ghd website. They have a dedicated guide here where there are expert tips and tutorials on how to create the best looks.

Review: HANair Professional Hair Dryer

I’ve had the pleasure and displeasure of trying a few blow dryers in my life. I’ve been an air dryer most of my life, but there are times when time is of the essence and I just can’t wait for the air to swoop in and handle business. So, I need a blow dryer in my arsenal of hair tools and I might have possibly been introduced to the best hair dryer, yet.

Awhile back, Missiko.com sent me this HANA hair blow dryer to test and it was probably awe and love at first strong blow. I’ve used it so many times on my thick, curly, and frequently sometimes unruly hair. I’ve used it for blowouts that have made my hair super straight, soft, and shiny. However, the  moment I knew that I was in the presence of a keeper is when I needed to diffuse my natural curls. First of all, my diffuser fits it (Yay!), but I when I turned on the dryer, it blowed my diffuser straight across the bathroom and into the tub. Yeah, it really blows; in a good way.  After getting my diffuser to stay on McGuyver style, it was like being introduced to someone or in this case something that you know will forever be a part of you life.

The HANA dryer is a bit on the pricey side, but it’s so worth it! It’s lightweight and dries like dream. Definitely an beauty investment piece.

Review: Conair Infiniti Pro Blowdryer

Recently, Conair sent me their Infinite Pro Salon Performance AC Styling Tool to test and review. After using it a few times by now, I’m ready to give my HONEST review. So keep reading to see what I thought about this blow dryer.

Keep Reading.

When it comes to washing my thick, long, and super curly hair, I tend to let it air dry before I break out the flatiron. The less heat on my hair, the better. However, in the winter, I tend to semi dry my hair with a blow dryer and then flatiron. I’m not a fan of this method nor am I fan of catching a cold because I’m walking around with wet hair in cold air.

So, this was the perfect time for me to try a out this blow dryer. The Infiniti Pro Styling tool boasts 1875 watt AC motor which is the same motor typically designed and used in salons, while being 15% lighter than most AC motor blow dryers.

Basically, if you are looking for a salon quality blow dryer at an affordable price, then I suggest you get this one. It features 3 heat/ 2 speed switches for you to control the heat and airflow. It also comes with 2 attachments that are perfect for control the airflow when trying to blow dry your hair straight. The attachments, by the way, are super durable and pop right in. However, the one thing that I wish this blowdryer came with was a diffuser attachment for curly hair. Luckily, my diffuser slides right on, but it would be nice to have one that pops for extra stability like the attachments included.

All in all, I’m so happy to have this new and awesome blowdryer! FYI, my favorite curling iron is a Conair Infiniti ceramic curler(that I bought a couple of years ago) and I love it hardcore. So, I should have known that I would have a fancy for this blowdryer.

Load Up…Profectiv Healthy Ends

Whenever I run across this pink little jar, I always try and stock up on as many I can. Unfortunately, I can only seem to find this at the beauty supply store next to the Kroger that I rarely shop despite it being the closest one to my home.

I’ve looked for this at too many beauty supply and drugstores throughout Memphis, but to no avail.

The reason I love this heavy pink creamy concoction is because all I have to do when my ends are looking dry and downright pitiful is slather some on my ends and put my hair in a bun before heading to bed. The next morning, I wake up to smooth and soft ends. It’s the only creamy crack I love.

FYI, I don’t know why it still says “New” considering the first time I fell in love with it was well over 5 years ago! *Kanye shrug* Also, this was the star of one of the  very first posts I ever did. Google it when you’re bored.

Collecting Creme of Nature?!

I’ve never been one to fancy just one brand, especially when it comes to shampoo and conditioner. However, over the past couple of month, Creme of Nature has been my go-to shampoos and conditioners. Since Creme of Nature offers gaggles of products in multiple lines, I  don’t have all the counterparts to the products I’ve been mixing and matching.

I wish I could give you all an indept review of each of the items, but to be honest, they all work awesome on my hair, because they all strengthen, moisturize, and overall make my hair soft and manageable. I plan to try other lines from Creme of Nature, because I’m loving them hardcore right now!
