Put Your Hair Up!

Wed, 04/17/2019 - 10:39 -- evenvision

Many of us have such a complicated relationship with our curls. I love my curls but hate how difficult it can be to take care of them while living an active lifestyle. There are so many options for putting my hair back or tying it up but many of them pretty much destroy my chances at second and third day hair. 

 

I’m always on the search for new and better alternatives to scrunchies, spiral hair ties, clips and hair pins. While these products work decently to hold my hair up and out of my face, they don’t really add anything to my over style. Plus, they pretty much destroy my curl pattern making refresh so annoying. Sometimes a regular hair tie does the trick but honestly can be not so fashionable.

 

I don’t even want to remember all the times that I ripped a chunk of hair out trying to get a scrunchie out of my hair after the gym! So when Saya Designs contacted me asked us to try their hair slide, the Moon Flower (https://sayadesigns.com/moonflower-hair-slide), we jumped at the chance.

 

Saya Designs sent me one of their Recycled Teak Root hair slides. First of all, the story behind their products is a cool one – they use reclaimed and sustainable tree roots from Bali. But the most important thing is that the hair slide is amazing. This is not an advertisement by any means. This Moon Flower is a game changer.  No hair breakage and my curls were left almost completely intact.

Dew Point?

Wed, 04/11/2018 - 10:46 -- evenvision

Hi Curlies!

It's been a minute, huh? Or "eh" as Jess would say :)

Hope your curls are poppin' and your day is beautiful! Today we're going to talk a bit about dew point. Now some of you are saying "Yes! Finally some information on dew point". And some of you are saying "What?!?!? Another thing to worry about on this Curly Hair Journey of ours!".

As we get better and better at dialing in healthy hair, we discover more and more factors that can play a role in getting good hair days more often than not. Now, what in the world is the dew point and how do we navigate this new territory? To put it simply, the dew point is the temperature at which water droplets (dew) start to form from the moisture in the air. But wait - there's more! Atmospheric pressure and humidity also play a role in this, and it can get a little complicated. But we got this far in the Curly Goal Method by being hair scientists, why stop now?

Why should we care about the dew point, you ask?

Well, many of us use products that contain humectants, like glycerin, that absorb or retain moisture. Sometimes this is a great thing, and sometimes it can lead to the frizz of a lifetime. Many times, we use the exact same products and techniques but get wildy different results from day to day. We blame it on the humidity but dew point is often the culprit. In ideal conditions, glycerin helps keep bouncy, moisturized curls but in the wrong conditions breakage and frizz can occur. The "ideal" conditions have a lot to do with the dew point.

My Hair Routine

Fri, 09/29/2017 - 18:15 -- Jess

Hi Curlies!

A few people asked me recently on Instagram what products I use on my hair. I gave them the exact products in my answer, but of course the whole routine is a little long to reply in an IG comment. :) The routine is posted on my website in the Curly Care section, but I thought it might be a good idea to post it on the blog too to make it easier to find. :) 

Jess' Curly Hair Routine

I'll take this opportunity to say this - the whole routine from start to finish only takes about 45 minutes including shower time, it just LOOKS long all typed out. :)

I color my hair with Ion Color Brilliance color every 6-8 weeks. I've used many brands over the years and I prefer this one to get a nice, vibrant red that doesn't fade.  I use2 parts Light Copper Blonde and 1 part Intense Red.  (My natural color was a strawberry blonde so this just takes it all the way to red.)  A few times a week I put in a dime sized puddle of Oil Blend For Softer Hair and leave it in overnight and once a week I use my Deep Conditioning Treatment to provide extra moisture. I get little trims every 3-4 months to take care of any dead ends and re-shape it. If I don’t, my hair turns triangular pretty fast.  :)
