Coffee Talk: Keeping It Real (Vlog)

It’s been quite some time since I posted a video.

I know this afternoon’s post is coming later than usual, but that’s how it usually goes when I am trying to upload anything to YouTube. I never know if or when it is going to work!

For whatever reason, I was in a mood for vlogging today and invite you to join me over a cup of coffee (or whatever) to chat.

For anyone who reads blogs, stalks the lives of celebrities, or thinks their friends’ lives on social media is perfect, this talk is for YOU! Enjoy. <3

How To Get More Wear Out of Your Hair (Tutorial)

Hello, hello! This afternoon I am continuing HWG Beauty Week with a video I promised you weeks ago. (Are you getting sick of these yet?)

Back in November, I debuted a How I Curl My Hair tutorial, and the positive feedback encouraged me to then film How I Scrunch + Tight Curl My Hair.

In those videos, I demonstrated my around the barrel and away from the face curling technique using a curling wand, along with how I create the look of tight curls vs. loose curls.

Today, I am sharing how to make that hairstyle last for days… i.e.:

How To Get More Wear Out of Your Hair (Tutorial)

Because who really washes their hair every single day anymore?

Before I get going, let me just throw this out there…

This is a judgement-free zone, people.

On average, I only wash my hair two to three times a week. Really. For those of you who don’t know already, my hair has a very weird frizzy, thin, but looks thick natural wavy/curly texture to it. Without blow drying and styling it, it isn’t pretty, and I wouldn’t wish the same hair upon my worst enemy.

Dealing with it pre-straightener days was a real treat.

I guarantee that the majority of pictures I post of myself, I am rocking at least day-old hair in them. A lot even have two-day-old styling, but you would probably never know!

To be one hundred percent real with you, I have been known to go three to four days without washing my hair, depending on what my activities look like. I started getting into that habit when I added a dark red tint to my hair, since it tends to wash out so easily.

If you’re thinking that’s gross or that you had no idea, that just means I am doing a good job at getting the most wear out of my hair and this is why I am sharing my ways! (Stop judging me.)

Per usual, I guess my techniques are best described in person, or in this case, via YouTube. I hope you enjoy it!
