Hair Tutorial + Favorite Products

Finally, a hair blog post! I get asked pretty much everyday about my hair so hopefully this will help answer all your questions.

1. MONAT

Oh Monat, so many opinions on this product both GREAT and TERRIBLE. I had to give it a try so I could voice an opinion - I paid for my products {even on sale is was $$$}, but even if someone gifted me them my opinion is honest. I fall somewhere on the fence about this product, my hair was NOT super damaged going into use. Yes my hair felt the cleanest ever and it did stay cleaner for about 4-5 days vs 3-4 with my regular shampoo. 

I had a LOT of people send me the horror stories - I'm pretty sure there is even a FB group for people who claim this product destroyed their hair, I haven't actually looked it up, but it sure did put some fear in me. 

After about 3 months of use I decided not to buy another set, I just don't think the benefit [for me] was worth the dollar bills.

2. MY FAVORITE PRODUCTS.
**Amazon store on the upper tabs no longer works - you can find a link in my IG profile or by clicking here.

My hair is super fine and very very straight  - so I love anything that gives me volume BUT doesn't make it gross so I can go more days in-between washing.

Bumble and Bumble Pret A Powder Shampoo I can't live without this product, I put it in on day one after blow drying. It gives just enough texture to give your hair some umph, but unlike the PuffMe it doesn't leave my hair sticky! Worth all my pennies.


Aquage Uplifting Foam is great for washing days, it's powerful but not too sticky or stiff in my fine hair.

I rarely use hairspray - I find it doesn't do much in the Texas humidity and tends to make my hair feel dirty faster. If I do braids or some type of updo I will use Kenra Volume Spray.

And I can't forget this purple shampoo - it's BOMB for keeping the yellow to a minimum!!! AG Hair Colour Care Sterling Silver Toning Shampoo I use it once a week, it can be drying so don't overdo it!




3. TOOLS

I have several wands, but I use different barrels a lot depending on my mood. The sassier I feel the tighter my curl.

Nume is more expensive, but usually you can google and find a discount code.


This is a $40 set I got off Amazon and it works really well too if you don't want to invest a ton, ELEHOT Curling Wand Iron Set


I also have  The Beachwaver  which has a tiny clip to hold the end of your hair while you press the button and the barrel turns automatically for you. I find this easier on LONGER hair, it's a bit tricky to get those shorter parts when it's above your shoulders.

These are not the cheapest, but I only will put my hair in a pony with one! There are serval brands, I've found the cheapie ones are not as good. I've found them at Ulta + Target also - Invisibobble Traceless Hair Ring  I use them at the gym and I also always put my hair up at bedtime so it doesn't get all flat on the sides, this bobble helps to decrease the dent in my hair.


Here's a tutorial on how I curl my hair, you can also click here to watch on YouTube. I am using the Nume wand 25MM barrel.



While I'm quite enjoying my blonde hair for now, let's take a little trip down memory lane in honor of #TBT

when I put my bra on top of my shirt to mess with madison. 

also, where are these booties?? I forgot about them!
