Straight Hair in 25 Minutes after air dried

Easy way to make your hair stay straight for the whole week without retouching

 

These are the steps I take to maintain my hair straight the entire week:

  1. Wash hair
  2. Towel dry hair
  3. Apply leave in conditioner
  4. Apply macadamia healing oil spray
  5. Let hair air dry
  6. Once dry detangle
  7. Flat iron (this take me 25 minutes and I have long hair)
  8. Apply a bit more of Macadamia healing oil spray
  9. Hair should be soft, shiny and flat all week (that’s if you do not tie it up, to take a shower use a clip)

 

Note: Macadamia Healing Oil Spray is amazing it smells awesome and it feels very silky.

*Macadamia Healing Oil Spray is an ultra-fine mist that instantly absorbs into hair, weightlessly infusing moisture and shine

Wavy Hair without hot tool

I wanted my hair to be wavy without using a hot tool; I took the following steps and was very happy.

 

Instructions:

STEP 1: Wash hair and detangle

STEP2: Towel dry hair

STEP 3: Braid damp hair

STEP 4: Spray leave in conditioner and holding gel

STEP 5: Go to sleep

STEP 6: Remove the braid the next day and voila! You have wavy hair.

**If you want to achieve curls just twist your hair and use thin rubber bands, you will be impressed.

5 Cute Short Hairstyles

Thinking of a change but can’t figure out what? Why not just get a hair cut.

Almost everyone can get away with a short style, but some styles work better with certain face shapes. Which styles suits you better?

Pixie: works best on women with thick, natural wavy hair.

Bob: works best if you have a nice jaw line and neck, if you have a round face a longer bob looks best.

Long Bob: anyone can pull it off; it ranges from mid neck to the shoulders.
