I have a little of everything for you today. I know I haven't shared home decor pics in awhile, so I thought I'd share a few, just to make me feel like I still have a "home decor" blog. :)
I mentioned my bee skep on IG recently and got a lot of DM's asking what that was, so I shared this pic...
I still can't believe I got it on clearance at Hob Lob for less than $2! One of my favorite clearance finds ever.
I put my new $5 "dollar spot" cake stand to good use on my kitchen buffet...
A different view of my living room...
Here's a tip for you, especially if you have frizzy hair like me. My hair is naturally curly, but not "pretty curly." It's more like "frizzy curly." Like it can't decide if it wants to be curly or not, so it just settles on frizz. I've talked about my favorite frizz fighters before and these remain my all time favorites...
Suave avocado and olive oil shampoo and conditioner.
Suave sleek anti frizz smooth and shine cream.
Okay, before I give you my tip, let me back up and tell you how I figured this out. I color my hair at home (for $6, thank you very much) and the color kit comes with a tube of deep conditioner that you're supposed to use immediately after coloring, and then once a week to keep your hair protected and soft.
We all know that a major contributor to frizz is dry hair. The only thing about this deep conditioner is that it doesn't work as well as my Suave avocado and olive oil conditioner for controlling frizz. I hated how my hair looked the day after I used the deep conditioner because of its lack of frizz control. In fact, I pretty much only used the deep conditioner the day I colored my hair and skipped out on using it once a week, like they recommend.
Then it finally dawned on me that I could still use my favorite Suave conditioner AFTER I used the one that comes with my hair color. That way, I would still get the "deep conditioning" from the one, and the frizz control from the other. I tried it recently the day I colored my hair. I colored my hair, then washed it (with a tiny bit of shampoo because I know you're not really supposed to wash it immediately, but I can't stand the thought of not washing my hair) and then I used the deep conditioner tube that came with my coloring kit. I left that on for a few minutes, then rinsed it out and then applied my Suave conditioner and left it on for a few minutes before rinsing it out.
Y'all...that did the trick! My hair was so soft and practically FRIZZ FREE!!! Conditioning it twice in a row really worked! I still use the deep conditioner once a week, followed by my regular conditioner, but on all the other days, I just condition twice with my Suave conditioner. Then after towel drying, I use my Suave Frizz control cream, then blow dry.
Let's do a little comparison, shall we? First up is a recent pic I posted of my new necklace and earrings, but look at my hair. See the frizz? How can you not, huh? Lol! This was on a particularly bad frizz day and I had been outside where it was very windy. I should have fixed my hair a little before taking a pic, but I was counting on y'all focusing on my jewelry, not my hair. Ha!
And below is after double conditioning...
Apparently "double conditioning" is a real "thing." Have y'all heard of doing this? I've never heard the term double conditioning and thought I was so smart to come up with it. It wasn't until I googled it that I found out I wasn't the first to try this. Ha ha!
One person said the best hair advice they ever got came from the movie "The Blind Side." It was when the mom told the daughter not to double condition her hair when she was in the shower because they were in a hurry. Who knew? I've seen that movie, but totally missed that little gem. :)
With all that conditioning, I also use this clarifying shampoo every 1-2 weeks to avoid product build up...
And y'all know the little trick of spraying a little hair spray into the palm of your hand and then patting down any stray hair frizzies, right? That works wonders as well and doesn't leave your hair all sticky like an all over hair spray job would do.
So tell me, do you double condition?
