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…

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! The Tifara Beauty Heat Cap The Tifara Beauty heat cap has over 1,000 customer reviews with a 4 out of 5 star rating! The instructions are simple and easy. Wash and rinse hair. Ring water out of hair. Comb through deep conditioner. Heat deep conditioning cap for 90 seconds in microwave. Wear for 10 minutes. Rinse…

Decorating On A Budget: Breakfast Nook & Living Room

It’s our first southern snow day of 2018 in Charlotte, North Carolina. All the schools are closed and our neighbors are roaming the streets in their snow suits and sleds. I have been secretly hoping for snow since we stayed south for the holidays. I think we have close to 5 inches! That’s kind of a big deal for us. I enjoy fresh fallen snow because it acts as a diffuser. My home is beautifully lit and the sun isn’t even out. I had my camera gear out so I took the opportunity to snap a few photos of our home decor updates. Our story We purchased this house in the fall of 2016. It is located in a neighborhood of homes designed to look as if they were plucked right out of Charleston, South Carolina. Our goal is to be fiscally responsible with this investment. That means smart, long…

Sandals Resort LaSource Grenada: Gluten Free Review

Traveling with food allergies is a burden I would not wish on my worst enemy. Every trip involves hours of research and communication with airlines, restaurants, resorts and event coordinators. When the trip arrives, you leave armed with detailed information. However, there is still a nagging feeling of fear that you can’t get rid of. Most people get excited about eating at a new place. For me, having Celiac Disease, each time I start to eat at an unknown location I wait for the tell-tale signs that I have been glutened. My biggest fear is getting sick on vacation in a world far away from the comforts of home. The last time I was exposed to gluten, I was down for three days in severe pain and couldn’t eat anything. This is the last experience I want on vacation. If your travel planning story sounds anything like mine, I’d like…
