Having two babies and coloring your hair will wreak havoc on your strands. Every morning when I get ready, I literally pray for the tumbleweeds of hair that I see rolling around on my floor. Breastfeeding makes all my hair fall out, thankfully, I have quite a bit of it. I finally decided that it was time to give my long hair the big CHOP. I’ve been looking at long bobs (or “lobs”) for awhile now and didn’t think I could pull it off. But you know what? It’s HAIR. It grows back, so I pulled the trigger. My hair was in such terrible shape. Split ends everywhere, ends that felt like hay… so it was time. R.I.P. 9 inches!
I teamed up with Garnier to tell you a little bit about their Whole Blends line. Here is my first post (5 minute wavy hair tutorial) , in case you missed it! I am focusing on telling you about their Honey Treasures products today because they strengthen and heal damaged hair (HELLO! just what the doctor called for!) with the naturally inspired ingredients of honey, royal jelly & propolis. It’s no surprise to me that these ingredients are what my hair has been needing for the past few months. Honey, a product we so frequently use (especially when we have colds) has so many great qualities. I just knew these products were going to knock it right out of the park! After the long winter, your hair could use a little lift me up too! You should totally try this line out. I promise you’ll love it!
My first hairstyle is the Vintage Glam look.
It’s super simple. First, I parted my hair all the way to one side. Then, I used a straightener (you can use a curling iron too!) to put a few curls here & there. < I washed my hair the night before so this was quick and easy! >Then, I combed the side with the least amount of hair and pinned it back with two bobby pins! I love this hairstyle for a date night out with my hubs!
2nd hairstyle is the boho side braid
This one takes just a bit of practice, but once you have it down, it’s quick and easy as well! These curls were left over from the look above (vintage hairstyle) and I just added in a few fresh ones. Then I parted my hair to the side and used a comb to mark the area of the braid. I pinned the rest of my hair back so that I could easily french braid it down the side!
3rd hairstyle is the straight arrow side lift (yep, totally made that up)
This requires 2 minutes of your time. No excuses! My hair was straight for this (just flat ironed it for 30 seconds on each side). Then I took a little chunk of hair from the front and twisted it along the side of my head into a bobby pin! I also like to do this when putting my hair into a low bun. It gives the side some dimension!
The products that will damage your rough, beat up ends! Especially in my case of post pregnancy damaged strands! Garnier Whole Blends not only smells delicious, it is wholesome loving care blended for naturally beautiful hair!
