Hair straightening brush

How many of you have seen this device floating around the internet over the past couple of years? Well I finally decided to bite the bullet and try it out. Surprisingly I actually liked it, minus the off putting chemical smell that comes from this particular version that I bought from Amazon. If you want perfectly straight, frizz free hair, then this is not the device for you, I would suggest getting a flat iron. My favorite is the CHI, I have been using mine since high school. This straightening brush is for more natural looking straight hair with a little more volume than a flat iron would give. I find that it takes about the same time to do my hair if I use this device or if I use a flat iron. I have curly, wavy, frizzy mixed hair so this device is perfect for me when I want my hair to look more put together.

One of the things I like the most about this device is that you can control the temperature. Some people find the automatic heat settings on devices too hot, and with this you can us a higher or lower temperature setting based off your personal preference. The one negative about this is that you can’t get close enough to straighten out your baby hairs, and mine are curly so I have to use the flat iron as well, which to see seems a little redundant.

Overall I don’t think that this is a device that you need to run out and go purchase, especially if you already own a flat iron, but if you are looking for something new or if you had wanted to try this then I don’t think you would be disappointed with your purchase.

Note: This device is not going to give you that super sleek, straight hair look that a flat iron would give. This gives you more of a natural straight softness to your hair.

Here is the link to the one I bought but there are so many versions out there. I advise you to look at review on amazon before you pick one to buy! hair straightening brush

Happy New Year!

I know! I Know..it has been a million years, but I am back. I hope you all had an amazing 2017 and start to the new year so far. One of my major resolutions for 2018 is to start blogging again. Life got the best of me last year, and between moving and facing new challenges in my life I just lacked the inspiration and time to blog. One of the things I like to do at the end of each year is to reflect on what I can do better or be better at in the next year. For me one of the things that I really missed doing was blogging, because it was a way for me to create and share as well as show my creative side, and a fun way to write and interact with the world.

So hears to all of us doing our best to fulfill all of our resolutions for the years as best as we can. I know that life happens and sometimes it can be hard but if we push through we can achieve all of our goals! Cheers to the new year and I hope you all have a great 2018!

DIY Tumeric Brightening mask

Tumeric, the golden spice of life, is a natural ingredient that is used for more than just cooking. It can be used as an all-natural skincare ingredient that can be applied topically to brighten your face for glowing skin. Tumeric has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-aging properties, and it can also reduce the visibility of acne scars. This makes it a great ingredient to use as a face mask.

My mom and grandma have been using tumeric for as long as I can remember, not just for cooking, but as a face mask. Many people have their own versions of this diy mask, but this is the way that I have always learned to use it.

 

Products Used:
Tumeric
Milk
Fresh Lemon Juice
Chickpea Flower
Honey (optional)

Directions:

  • mix all the ingredients together until you get a paste. The mixture should have a texture similar to pancake batter.
  • with a brush apply all over face and let sit till it hardens. I usally leave it for about thirty minutes.
  • rinse off with a warm, wet wash cloth
  • moisturize face

– Make sure you are wearing an old shirt that you don’t really care about because tumeric can stain your clothing.
