How to Restyle Wavy Hair for Everyday

My hair has a habit of looking drab and sad after the first day it’s washed. I don’t have to wash it every day since it’s incredibly dry, but it becomes so flat and shapeless without a little effort put into it. I typically wash and air dry–and that’s it. But, I’ve resolved to take better care of my hair in 2018, continuing on from 2017 and take little extra effort to make it more defined, healthy and voluminous. You may recall the years I was a bleach and tone, bleaching every strand of my hair and after a while, I started to loose chunks of hair and the damage is still in the process of growing out. So now I’m enjoying my natural roots, air drying my hair and taking extra steps and products to ensure it’s health.

Moving on to styling this kind of wavy mop! This second day styling takes about 15 minutes, a few great products, large barrel curling iron and/or a straightening iron.

I was known for out of control, voluminous curls and people could spot me a mile away. It’s been part of my “brand” but with age, comes changes and my hair started losing some of that volume and curl on its own, oddly enough. Read More »

Curly Hair Woes

It took me a long time to accept my curly mop..and naturally right when I start to come around to it, it evolves from over-the-top big and springy curls to looser, less dense curl, with the same amount of frizzies. My friend and hair stylist who owns the Standard has been singing the Brazilian Blowout praises as she’s managed her own curly hair with the hair treatment. And I was finally ready to try it.

Because I finally learned how to work with my curly/wavy hair (and out of pure laziness), I now embrace the natural texture. No heating products or tools here. I’m sharing my wash and style process over at Meijer Style along with a few of my tried and true products.
