I’m not sure baby powder is the best to remove shine from your face on a daily basis because it does contain talc and when I contacted Johnson & Johnson they said that it was not tested to be non-comedogenic (it might clog your pores) but I’ve read some reviews and for some people it works fine! The good thing about it is that it’s white so it will suit all skin tones, provided you dont cake it on. Also it smells so good and is rather cheap for the amount you get. If you notice my face above, particularily at the nose area is quite shiny after running around the whole day with makeup on. I poured some baby powder on my hand and I used a powder kabuki brush and powdered all over my face.
As you see below thats the shine away from my face focus on the nose area! Anyway I think its good if you’re out of powder and its around the house or something like that. Also it might just work for you as regular powder to put on top of your foundation on a daily basis but I guess you would have to try that out. Have any of you tried this?
You know the back of the box when you dye your hair that says ‘If you are trying to decide between two colors always choose the lighter color’ well I did not listen to that advice. I wanted my hair to even out the ends that were lighter and instead I ended up with almost black hair. As you can see above I was not happy also I’m not wearing any makeup so yeah not a good picture!
I decided to get rid of it but instead of just dying over it, I tried colourb4 which removes only darker shades that you’ve put on your hair. It was £11 at Boots and it worked. I left it on for 30 min and then washed it out. It was quite easy I just put it in my hair and waited. It came out quite cool a bit reddish since some of the color is lifted in your hair even when you dye it dark.
The final Results!
Hi Everyone! Hope youre well. I’ve just gotten new lights and paper for my camera so you will probably see loads of pictures with different sorts of lighting while I’m figuring it out. Anyway I really wanted a bangs but I’ve had them before and they just don’t do what I want them to do so I decided to buy 100% human hair fringe from here. You can get it in different styles or in long so you can take it to the hair stylist to cut it for you and dye it if needed. Luckily this was the same color as my hais so I didn’t have to do anything with it. I quite like it and I have tricked a few friends with it though I have to get better at putting it on!
Unclip the backs of the fringe.
Part your hair in the middle.
Clip the fringe to the sides of the hair.
Arrange your hair around the fringe.
When I was about 16, okay until about two years ago, I found sun-in and started damaging my hair by way of trying to lighten it. Sun-in gradually became bleached highlights and that was the begining of my hair damage. Not only did I want ‘sun-kissed’ hair but I also wanted it to be super long which meant I wouldn’t cut it for really long periods of time. I would have split ends running up a couple of inches. Right around that time was also when flat ironed hair was in, so yup, did that too! My aunts would tell me that my hair looked like a bird’s nest and naturally I thought they were just jealous of my hair.
Well I have come a long way since then, I have a natural color in my hair, virtually no split ends and long wavy hair that I occaisionally blow dry straight ( flat irons make my face look wider) . During the summer my hair does tend to get dryer because of the salt water, chlorine, and sun that it tends to come with holidays. Seeing as how the summer is over I have now cured my hair of the dryness it experienced during the summer I thought I would share some of the things that work for me and my hair to keep it conditioned and healthy. See below for a picture of me but please only look at the hair!!
1. Get your hair trimmed every few months this will keep the split ends off. Your hair stylist can usually advise you depending on your hair. I go every three months becasue I have curlyish hair.
2.Use the proper shampoo/conditioner. It doesn’t have to be expensive but just like your skin type you have a hair type (thick, normal, fine, straight, curly) You dont want a volumizing conditioner if you already have a lot of volume in your hair.
3. Use a hair mask or conditioning treatment at least once a week. You can either buy this or mix some olive or argan oil into your conditioner and leave on for 10 minutes.
4. Protect your hair. If you use a straightner, blow dryer, or curling iro, make sure you use some sort of heat protection spray or cream before you start.
5. Splurge on a special Hair treatment. Everyone should have their go-to treatment when their hair is dry from summer or simply too much styling. Sometimes this means spending some money. If your skin needs it, so does your hair. I have recently started using Label.m Therapy age-defying cream it is literally a serum used to reverse the signs of aging for your hair. I have seen a noticeable difference in the texture of my hair. Also the price is not bad (£17.95). I also really like the Kerastase range of hair care though that can be a bit pricier but good if you are looking to do an at home ‘hair rejuvination’ and literally use the products until they run out and you’ve got healty hair again!
Do you have any hair tips or at home treatments?
