Hair Care Routine

L'oreal Ever Pure Sulfate-Free Shampoo and Conditioner

Tresemme Nourishing Rituals Rejuvenating Mud Masque and ArganMagic Nourishing Hair Cream
 Not too long ago I noticed my hair was looking pretty dull and fried. I kept trying to control my hair using product after product and my hair did not take kindly to that. I learned my lesson. Hair that's unhealthy is more likely to frizz. Piling on product after product only managed to dry my hair out even more so I decided to change my routine: 

  • L'oreal Sulfate Free Shampoo and Conditioner- I decided to switch to sulfate-free because these are gentler on hair. I really like this combination. The shampoo has a floral scent while the conditioner has a peppermint scent and when they mix together they smell amazing. I specially the fact that the shampoo is very creamy, because I haven't actually tried one with that kind of consistency. I haven't noticed anything outstanding, but they do a good job keeping my hair moisturized. 
  • Tresemme Nourishing Rituals Rejuvenating Mud Masque- I started using this every week. What I do is I wash my hair and replace my conditioner for this masque. After using it for almost a month, I think it really has helped to hydrate my hair, smooth it, and give it a nice amount of shine.
  • ArganMagic Nourishing Hair Cream- There's been a lot of rave lately about the wonders of Argan oil and I was very curious to try it. I must say that this product takes the cake! Every time I use it my hair looks healthy and shiny. It has a very nice citrus fragrance and a nice consistency. It's a very thick cream that you apply to all of your hair and comb through (combing it is a necessity, if not you end up with patches of this stuff over your hair). When I wear this I don't have to worry about frizz, it keeps my hair in place and it remains soft and manageable. 
What are your tips and tricks for healthy hair?

D.I.Y: Galaxy Print T-shirt

I've been looking at some galaxy print stuff on the internet for a while now. Even though I've been oddly transfixed by the stuff, I haven't been able to commit to buying a piece. I find that most things are ridiculously overpriced (last item I checked was a pair of leggings that went for a whopping 80 pounds!). Knowing this I set out on a mission to find a good tutorial. I couldn't help but noticed that most tutorials use bleach to create the effect. I didn't really like this technique because I think that handling the bleach is pretty complicated, one wrong move and your clothes disintegrate.  After experimenting for a while, I realized that you can create a very similar effect just using fabric paint, a sponge, and some very clever blending.

Review: Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush

Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Candy Coral

I got this little blush as an impulse buy. I feel in love with the bright coral shade and just had to try it. However, my experience with this product was very disappointing. The packaging looked really adorable. At first you get this really smooth looking product, but after a while it deflates and looks pretty messy. I did find that the texture of the product was very interesting, it felt very soft and airy. Maybelline suggests that you apply the blush with your fingertips and I must agree. The only way to really blend the blush is to use your fingers and well I didn't really find it too easy to blend. Another thing that disappointed me about the product was the pigmentation. I feel like it barely shows up on my skin tone, and for it to be noticeable I need to pile on the product.
