How to be confident in your new haircut or style

Hair is so personal and it is who we are. I know we're bored as hell and want to do crazy things... like cut or perm your hair. What? ONLY ME? I got tips from a stylist named Lisa (former My Spiced Life contributor) a while back and now would be the perfect time to share it- since we are now entering stage 3 of COVID.

Are you ready to be confident?

Hair talk: Textures & Extensions

I am so surprised how popular my hair posts are. I was very iffy about talking about weaves/extensions it at first. Now that I have stated my concerns, I'm willing to share more. I have been getting a lot of emails & blog comments for more topics to be covered such as textures & over all general care.

In this post I am going to address texture. Texture is one of the most important things to think about when picking out extensions. I haven't "permed" my hair in two years and my current texture is curly. It wouldn't make sense for me to go out and  buy bone straight extensions to blend with my hair because the textures would be completely off.I could straighten my hair to blend but I do not want heat damage.

Regardless of length, I try to make ALL my extensions/weaves look natural. I decided to ask Constance from Bella Dream Hair some tips on picking the perfect extensions for first-time wearers.
 I think the biggest mistake women make is looking at an image and saying that THAT is what I want without taking into consideration their hair texture. If you see a woman with silky straight curls and you want that style but your hair is not silky in the least...then you ma'am should not pick that hair texture. Find a texture that matches your hair rather it's natural, relaxed or permed. Work with what you got so that your weaves will be flawless. 

As basic as that information is, I still see styles which totally perplex me! I know I'm not alone with that feeling...haha.

Overall, the versatility of extension can change up your looks in seconds. 
Monica is my favorite example of that because she can rock short and long styles naturally.

I hope you all enjoyed this post.

John Frieda frizz-ease & full REPAIR

Summer is coming fast! 
I don't know where you are but in Canada we have been experiencing REALLY good weather.
Two of the most popular summer styles I will be rocking are straight & curly hair.

Thankfully I have been introduced to amazing products from John Frieda for my summer hairstyles.

Sheer Solution™ Lightweight Frizz Control

This product is not greasy and has a light scent.
I don't have time to curl my hair every morning.
So I use a few drops on my dry curls to eliminate frizzies and make my curls survive another day.

How to use:
Shake the DUAL FORMULA until mixed. Then shake 10 drops into palm, rub hands together and smooth through damp hair. Use more or less product depending on the length and texture of hair. DO NOT RINSE OUT. Style as usual. 
Full Repair™ Style Revival™ Heat-Activated Styling Spray
This spray is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! 
I try not to use a lot of heat on my hair because I don't want any breakage. 
It makes my hair shiny and not heavy.

How to use:
This breakthrough, heat-activated styling spray, with Inca Inchi Oil, adds manageability, body and flexible hold to any style. Works with heat tools and helps protect against breakage and damage, creating shiny, versatile styles that last all day.
