I started using this BB cream when BB creams first started rolling out into the market. I think Maybelline was one of the first brands to have their own BB cream, but of course these types of tinted moisturizers can now be found anywhere. This one in particular I really like. It stays put all day, it gives me just enough coverage (I actually don’t like too much coverage), and it has SPF. This BB is perfect for everyday use. I apply it with my fingers or sometimes with a damp sponge.
Sebastian Potion 9 Travel Size
I first found out about this product on Pinterest claiming it works wonders on curly hair. Then singer Lorde confessed in a magazine interview her love for the product. I decided to try it out, but settled for the travel size version to test it out first. This product is a styling cream that is suppose to restore lost moisture. After using it on my damp curly hair I immediately saw a difference. There was less frizz than before and my curls became more defined. I ended up liking this product but don’t think I’ll pay for a full size bottle. To read a full review of this product go here.

Now that the summer is winding down it is the perfect time to take care of your hair after beach-bumming these past few months. Hot temps and hot tools can make your hair dry, unruly, and just plain frizzy. Get your hair in tip-top shape with this super easy hair mask. The best part? The two ingredients might already be in your kitchen.
What You’ll Need
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 tablespoon of coconut oil
Olive Oil: Its antioxidant and vitamins A and E benefits will hydrate the driest hair.
Coconut Oil: Its rich fatty-acids will help moisturize hair and scalp.
Like any hair mask this works best when your hair is tangle-free so that it is easy to run your fingers through. This is definitely important if your hair is super curly and thick like mine. Applying the mask on wet hair also works best.
Mix one tablespoon of both olive oil and coconut oil. Section your hair into four parts and gently scoop some of the mixture onto your hands. Rubbing the oils on your hands apply it to each section scooping up more when needed. Focus application on the ends of your hair working your way up to your roots.
After you’re done, gather your hair into a high bun and leave the mask on for 45 minutes. If you want serious moisture you can also leave it on overnight — just make sure to protect your pillows with a towel. After time is up, shampoo, condition, and style your hair like you normally would. That’s it! See, so easy! Now say hello to frizz-free hair.
