Floral Bomber & Orange Bodycon

A bold fashion move for a bold season. I wanted to go bold for awhile and this dress mixed with my floral bomber was just the look I was going to. The reason why this look worked so well is because of my confidence in it. My jacket is one that I have loved and had for three years. I usually paired it with dark colors to keep my outfit from being too much. My orange bodycon is a new piece that I got recently during the summer. I love it because it’s bright and fun. Putting the two together was a spontaeous choice of standing out in the chilly season. My black and white flats were a way to match my bomber and still look cute. The pairing may be odd, but I really like this look.

My Fall Curly Hair Hacks

Fall is here and with fall comes frigid air. As a girl with curly and thick hair, it is important for me to keep my curls moisturized and protected. Dry hair in the cold is not something any girl wants to deal with. Above is a graphic created by hair color company, eSalon that inspired me to make this post about some of my favorite hair hacks.

Deep Condition

A good deep conditioner keeps the moisture in for just a little longer. For the ultimate soft hair, spend a minimum of 15 minutes deep conditioning your hair. The extra step will make your hair feel loved. I promise. 😉

Don’t Wash Your Hair Often

When it’s cold outside, it’s not best to wash your hair often. Shampoo strips hair of its moisture, wheter it’s sulfate-free or not. I recommend co-washing your hair. I co-wash my hair between using shampoo and my hair has never been healthier. For those who don’t knw, co-washing is using conditioner to cleanse your hair instead of shampoo. It’s another way cleaning your hair and keeping its moisture.

Protective Styles Are Key

For a black girl with curly hair, my hair is constantly in elaborate styles to keep the brutal wind away. Buns and moisturized twist outs are my go-to hairstyles, when my hair isn’t in faux locs or twists. When it’s cold out, keep your hair away from the dry atmosphere as best as possible. Don’t let your hair suffer from the cold and become dry.

I hope you guys enjoyed these hair hacks.

Daytime Curly Hair Routine

In the morning, I unbraid my hair and apply some Argan oil to each section.

If my hair is really dry, I dampen it with water and apply my Cantu Shea Butter Leave-In Conditioner Repair Cream to add moisture.

Then I style my hair as I please using the Olive Oil Eco Styler Gel as needed.

When I’m trying to achieve a slick back look, I wrap my hair in a bandana for 10-15 minutes to ensure that there are no flyaways.

My mornings are pretty simple regarding to hair care, it’s usually taming my hair that takes time.
