Tutorial Tuesday – Use a Curling Wand

The use of curling wands can be tricky. Depending where you hold it, vertical or horizontal position or how tightly you wrap your hair around the barrel and so on can change the look and feel of your curls at the end. To end this battle with yourself, follow our tutorial to get easy curls perfect for any occasion!

You will need:

 

  1. Before you begin curling, make sure your hair is clean and dry.
  2. Prepare your hair by gently detangling it with a paddle brush or wide tooth comb.
  3. Horizontally part your hair starting at the temple and clip it out of place.
  4. Start with a vertical section of hair around an inch thick (the smaller the section the more curls you’ll have).
  5. Start wrapping your hair at the base of the barrel, and keeping a firm grip on your hair, wrap the entire section around the barrel without overlapping.
  6. Hold the tip of the section tightly around the barrel for a few seconds and release. The longer you keep your hair on the barrel the more defined your curls will be.

P.S. When you’re done with your whole head, don’t forget to run your fingers through your hair! This will give your curls a more natural look.

Spritz a shine mist to leave your hair smooth frizz-free.

Stay beautiful!

How To Choose The Right Hair Brush For You!

choosing-the-right-hair-brushThe right hair brush can dramatically affect the condition of your hair. Be sure to be working with the correct brush to get that marvelous hair you’re striving for because gorgeous hair is just a brush away.

Detangle

Hair is structurally weaker when wet, so rough brushing can cause snags and tears. Gently loosen your tangles with a brush that has widely spaced bristles designed to detangle wet hair.

Curl

If you want soft curls without using a curling iron, use a round brush with a ventilated metal, thermal, or ionic barrel. These barrels efficiently trap and circulate heat when you blow dry, plus you’ll cut drying time in half using the ventilated design. The Bio Ionic Round Wave Brush is great for creating curled or wavy hairstyles and looks.

Smooth

A flat, boar bristled paddle brush is perfect for smoothing hair after a blow dry. A flat paddle has a larger surface area designed to reach larger sections of your hair. The Macadamia Paddle Brush with Boar bristles is a quality hair brush that is gentle on the scalp. This brush will create a naturally smooth straight finish.

Straighten

You can blow dry all hair lengths and textures straight with a round brush. Choose metal, synthetic or natural bristles depending on your hair texture and condition. The longer your hair is, the larger the brushes diameter should be.

Style Long

A mixed bristle brush is best for long hair. The natural boar bristles polish the hair while the synthesize nylon ones gently grab and hold sections of your hair. Look for a brush with an air cushion, which allows the brush to glide over painful knots that could potentially break long locks.

Volumize

Vented brushes work wonders for volume! The open design evenly circulates air throughout your strands when you blow dry, resulting in a light, and bouncy finish with tons of movements.

Tease

Use a narrow brush with rows of densely packed bristles to backcomb your hair and smooth out the top layers.

Remember… “a hair on the head is worth two on the brush”

Quick Beauty Tip – Homemade Treatments for Damaged Hair

treatments-for-damaged-hairI’m obviously obsessed with beauty products and I’m not ashamed to say it – but I am also a fitness buff and fully understand and recognize the power of the natural ingredients we all have access to. So many of the delicious & nutritious things we include in our diet can also be used to make us more beautiful too! Here are a few of my favorite hair masks using all natural ingredients you can get at any grocery store!

1. Banana & Avocado: YES we are obsessed with avocados! Mash a ripe avocado and ripe banana and mix well. Apply an even layer to clean, dry hair and let sit for at least 15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly and condition as usual. Your locks will be moist & shiny when you’re done! Plus, this mixture smells delicious!

2. Honey & Olive Oil: Sounds like the beginning of a salad dressing recipe – but this combo does wonders for your tresses! Combine equal parts of the two and apply from roots to tips. Secure hair in a shower cap and let it sit for 45 minutes. Shampoo lightly and condition normally afterwards. Your hair will be silky & shiny when you’re done!

3. Thyme Treatment: If you suffer from dandruff, try this – boil 8 sprigs of fresh thyme in 2 cups of water. Once rapidly boiling remove from heat and let cool. Strain and massage the leaves into your scalp. Rinse and repeat with leftover mixture in a couple days. This is a natural way to fight flakes!

Tutorial Tuesday – How To Use Dry Shampoo

Dry Shampoo has quickly become the best friend of ladies everywhere! But, if you’re anything like me, you are nervous to try the stuff! The last thing you need when in a rush is to make your not-so-fresh hair even worse with clumpy, powdery dry shampoo. Below is a step by step tutorial. Be sure to follow the 10 inch away rule. Once you have sprayed it on, let it sit for 2 minutes without touching it. Then flip your head over to comb out any excess powder. My final tip is, resist the urge to touch it for the rest of the day. Although you have beautiful, fresh looking hair, you can’t run your fingers through it as usual. Trust me on this one!

Smooth Hair with Macadamia Natural Oil Hair Products

Taylor Swift's signature curls are smooth and frizz-free.   Do you straighten or blow dry hair more than 4 times a week? Do you use hair color? Do you put your hair though any chemical processing?

All of the above leads to dry hair.

Dry hair is easily damaged and the results are split ends, poofy ends and unhealthy looking hair that is weak and easily broken.

What to put on dry hair:

Today’s Flash Beauty Sale includes the Macadamia Natural Oil Rinse, Deep Repair Masque and Hair Oil Treatment. These are your go-to essentials for whenever you wash or style hair that needs some TLC.

The Macadamia Natural Oil Rinse is a super-hydrating deep conditioner. It will smooth out poofy ends after 5 minutes. You will notice the results once you comb your hair. It works for all hair types and is ideal if your hair needs moisture. Use it daily to soften, moisturize and detangle hair.

The Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque is a hair reconstructor ideal for twice a week. This will be your ally in preserving your hair color after last week’s salon visit! It also helps to keep your hair smoother in between hair straightening. Use it twice a week and enjoy your super-soft hair.

The Macadamia Natural Oil Healing Oil Treatment is oil for your hair. You apply this hair treatment on damp hair before straightening with a flat iron or before blow drying your locks. The hair oil is perfect for using with any styling tool because it creates a barrier that protects the hair cuticle from losing its moisture. If your hair loses moisture, it dehydrates and looks dry. This hair serum or oil can be used by itself after washing your hair. Apply a nickel-sized amount to palms before using any styling tool or after washing on damp hair. Comb through and style away.

Macadamia Natural Oil Hair Products is a hair care line infused with Macadamia and Argan oils. It is exactly what you need to achieve the shiny, luscious hair that you spot on the red carpet!
