Summer Hair Routine

Lately I've started getting a lot of questions about my hair. 
I don't know about all of you, but you can easily find me sitting in front of the computer, bag of tortilla chips in hand, watching and reading other bloggers hair routines for an embarrassing amount of time. It's just  that addicting to me... For that same reason I am constantly updating my hair products. However there are a few name-stays that always find their way back into my bathroom drawers. Not only that but I do have a very specific washing & styling routine that rarely changes. 

So per your request I've decided to finally let you in on all my little secrets when it comes to taming my, as I like to call it, Lions Mane

First thing you should all know is that I wash my hair every 3 days. This allows my dry frizzy hair enough time to recuperate from the damage I cause it with my straighter. Secondly I usually wash my hair at night, so I can air dry it and cut down on a lot of blow drying the next morning. 

On my hair washing nights I've been using my Joico Color Endure Sulfate - Free Shampoo followed by either my Paul Mitchell Forever Blonde Conditioner or my AG Cosmetics Sterling Silver Conditioner. All products are designed for color treated hair & the two conditioners are also designed to help remove brassy tones in blonde hair. The Paul Mitchell is very moisturizing and amazing for damaged hair, due to it's ingredients of  rich macadamia nut oils & KerActive proteins. The AG Cosmetics is a toning conditioner that I always make sure to apply once a week if not more. I also make sure to keep both conditioners on for at least 3-5 minutes to make sure my thick hair is fully absorbing the product.

Once I'm out of the shower I then spray in my Healthy Sexy hair Soy Tri - Wheat Leave in Conditioner and get to brushing! Then I apply a nickle size amount of my Agave Healing Oil to the ends of the hair and massage what small amount is left on my palm into the roots. Then I allow it to air dry while I drift off into dream land.

The next morning I lightly mist my TRESemme Thermal Creations heat protectant all over and get to styling. Make sure to watch my Hair Care Routine video for a tutorial on how a get my "natural" slight waves for summer. 

For second day hair I usually leave it alone, but sometimes I will opt in for curling a few strands or trying a new braid. 

Third day hair is when it starts getting a bit oily and lacking in volume . To counteract, I apply a small amount of  Baby Powder to the roots. Some use Dry Shampoo, but to me there's no difference between the two - not to mention the baby powder is a whole lot cheaper. 

Then my little trick is to spray in my Herbal Essence Naked Sheer Shine Mist. This stuff smells amazing and gives your hair that "I just hoped out of the shower" smell. Not only that but it adds a nice shine to the hair as well. 

Then the whole process repeats itself again!

What's you favorite hair care product of all time?! Comment below as I am looking for some new ones. 

Don't forget to watch my latest YouTube video showing you this whole process along with a quick tutorial on how I get my 'everyday slightly waved at the ends hairstyle'? There has to be a better name for that haha

Iridescent and Holographic accessories seem to be popping up everywhere lately. I for one am all for it! This new light reflecting material not only brings this 90's kid back to my early school days with Lisa Frank notebooks and Limited Too skirts - it gives my summer outfits a fresh new perspective. You guys can bet that I will be owning my iridescent frames on the beach along side my holographic clutch, I've thrown in my beach bag for drinks later that night. 

What do you think? Do you own anything in this new trend? Share your light reflecting favorites in the comments with us all!

The New Summer Staple Short

Dressy Shorts

images from

Last summer seamed to be a sea of high wasted destroyed cut-offs in faded blacks and sun-soaked denim. Although it was fun dressing up like modern day hippie meets early 90's grunge girl, this new staple short is more my kind of party. From edgy metallics and satin finishes to frilly laced & printed, this is a short I can have more fun with - not to mention how much they scream Kaylee. 

Which short do you prefer and what would you pair it with?!

Watch my Trend Report on this new Summer Staple in the video below for more about the dressy short!
