While surfing through youtube, I came across a video from Buzzfeed. Entitled ” We Gave Up Our Bad Spending Habits”, the video was definitely an eye opener. Especially when it comes to having bad spending habits and not budgeting our money. Read More
Curly hair for many or most people has it’s pros and cons. On one hand curly hair is fun and different, but on the other hand keeping it mositurized can be a battle. As someone who has curly hair, I know all to well about not keeping your hair moisturized. Because as we all know, dry curly hair will not curl up. Which is why it is essential to keep curly hair moisturized and in tip top shape. Yet despite it all, I would not want to have my hair any other way. The beautiful thing about curly hair is the fact that nobody has the same curl pattern or type. We are unique and beautiful in our own way and curls.
Yet with all the good and bad that comes with curly hair, their are some things you need to know. So below is a list of my top 10 do and don’ts that I have put together for curly hair. I hope you all enjoy and definitely let me know which do or don’t you can relate. Have a nice day everyone, and thanks again for stopping by!
1.) Keep your hair moisturized because dry hair does not like to curl up. Pay most attention to the ends since they are the oldest part of your hair.
2.) Try to deep condition your hair at least once a week. Especially in the winter when the air is colder outside.
3.) It is always best to let your hair air dry because it can sometimes lead to frizz when using a blow dryer.
4.) Always prep your hair before you go to sleep. Either retwist your hair at night or do the pineapple method. After doing the pineapple method, just put on your satin bonnet or sleep on a satin pillowcase.
5.) Keep your ends trimmed. Even if you have curly or textured hair, you still need to say goodbye to those split ends. If you don’t want to do the trim yourself, try to find a stylist that is not scissor happy.
1.) Do not over apply or over saturate your hair with products. Especially if you have finer strands because heavier products can weigh down your hair. For example: Shea Butter, Castor Oil, etc.
2.) Never comb or brush your hair especially when it’s dry and your curls are set. Because if you do, you will lose curl definition.
3.) Try to minimize the amount of heat that you put on your hair. Sometimes excessive use of blow dryers, flat irons, and curling irons can lead to heat damage. If the heat damage is too bad, it may result in irreversible damage.
4.) Never detangle on dry hair. Detangling on dry hair may lead to single strand knots and breakage.
5.) Last but not least, do not be unrealistic about your hair. Never be ashamed of your curls and embrace what God gave you. Because at the end of the day, no two people have the same curl type and pattern.
Hey everyone and welcome back to another cool post. As you guys can see from the title, I am writing a letter to my college self. I know that college is different for everyone, and things are not always easy. Some might leave with a student loan debt (here is a cool refinancing option ) or some might leave wtih life-long friendships. So whether you are in college or not, you are never too old to reflect and learn something new. College is a journey that may have many ups and downs, but throught it all you have to remain positive and not let things get out of control lol.
MY LETTER TO MY COLLEGE SELF
How are things going for you so far.? Hopefully you are taking college serious and making smart choices. By the way I know that the cafeteria food is not the best, but I guess this is what you get for going to a community college. On the bright side, at least you have some delicious food trucks near the school. Especially the one that makes those amazing breakfast sandwiches which are yum yum yum!
Besides eating delicious food from the trucks, make sure you are getting some help for your math class. I know that math is not your favorite subject, but don’t worry you are not alone. Their are millions of people who feel the same way too so don’t feel stressed out girl. Just make sure you get yourself a tutor and stop playing games little missy. You don’t want to repeat that same math class for another semester or do you.?
I know that making the decision to go to college was never easy for you. Debating back and forth in your mind did you make the right choice for yourself can definitely be overwhelming. You start to think “Did I make the right decision for myself or am I only doing this to make my mother happy?.” Look girl, I know you don’t want to disappoint your’e mother and it’s okay. We all go through phases in our life in which we struggle to find ourselves in this crazy world. So even if you came into this semester with a mindset of uncertainity, just try to stay positive and put your best foot forward.
So even if you feel after a semester or two that you are still confused about your life, you can always take a break. Or to get your mind off of things, try something different. Get involved with some extracurricular activities at the school like cheerleading or become part of a writing workshop since you enjoy writitng poetry so much. Meet new people and possibly gain new friendships. Most of all, don’t forget the importance of your education while you are busy being a social butterfly.
Well with that being said, I hope you enjoy your time at college and take the time to learn more about yourself. Embrace every exprience whether good or bad because life is not perfect. Remember to live life, be yourself, and always look forward to the future. Talk to you later and have an amazing semester girl. Rock on!!!
