Online Bra Shopping: Harper Wilde Review

Have you ever had that morning where you reached for your favorite bra but found it was in the laundry? You then had to change your entire outfit to accommodate that purple, lacy bralette you had sitting in the back of your lingerie drawer. Ugh! This was me every couple of days. It went on for months until I placed my first order with Harper Wilde. I don’t know why I waited so long to go bra shopping. Oh yes, I do! Who enjoys shopping for bras? The activity involves grabbing every style, color and size I can find and then spending way too much time in a poorly lit dressing room listening to the teen using Snapchat in the room beside me. *insert eye roll here* When I finally came to my senses, I sat down at my computer and looked for online bra shops. I had given this…

Updated: Best Travel Hair Dryer For Curly Hair

Are you a curly haired girl traveling for the holidays? Are you ripping out your curls trying to figure out how to pack your hair products and tools? I totally get it. I have two trips coming up for Thanksgiving and Christmas. A flight to Indiana and New Hampshire. Each one is an extended stay and will require a wash day. That means I’m going to need a travel hair dryer and diffuser. In the past I’ve traded in space and weight to bring my trusted BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Portofino full size dryer. However, it weighs almost 2 pounds and makes packing awkward. I also worry about it breaking during transportation. With a $100+ price tag, I’m done with taking that risk! We like to travel. Whether it’s a road trip around the states or internationally. My goal was to find a mini hair dryer and diffuser that would give…

My First ACV Rinse Results

Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) has been used for health purposes since about 400 B.C. It’s one of those natural home remedies that entire books are dedicated to. However, today I am focusing only on hair health. I’ve been seeing the curly girl community posting about ACV rinses and their results. We always have apple cider vinegar around the house. I’ve just been waiting for a morning with a little extra time to try it out. Apple cider vinegar can be used as a natural conditioning rinse. The acidity found in ACV balances the pH levels on your scalp and hair. This helps with dandruff, itchy scalp, hair loss and more.

How To Deep Condition Curly Hair With A Heat Cap

Are you struggling with dry, frizzy curls or lifeless, weighed down waves? I have experienced both in my curly girl journey. This past week, I discovered that I have low porosity hair. In short, this means that moisture does not easily penetrate the hair strand. Heat is your friend in this situation. It aids in the moisturizing affects of your curly hair products. Specifically, deep conditioners. This week, I decided to try using a microwavable heat cap to deep condition my hair. FYI: This post may include affiliate links, but all thoughts are my own!
