Before & After Deep Conditioning! 😱 Deep conditioning 1x per week does WONDERS for your hair, especially those with wavy and curly textures. In my new YT video, we’re going back to the basics and discussing how to tell when you need to deep condition, step by step how to do it, and some of the best deep conditioners. I also briefly discuss how to tell if you need a protein-based deep conditioner or one just for moisture. Direct link in my bio! 🎥 Leave your favorite deep conditioners below! I need more drugstore recommendations! 👇🏼 Deep conditioned here using the @devacurl Melt Into Moisture, @thermalhaircare Heat Cap, rinsed with cold water, applied stylers, plopped for 20 min with my @hairrepear Towel, and diffused.

Hope your week is going well! Today in my IG stories I’m sharing different ways to use the @denmanbrush. I’ve been experimenting so much with it and have found quite a few ways I like to use it on wash day and to refresh! Should I do a full YouTube video on how to use it? Let me know! ➿

In my stories I share how I styled with the @nymbrands #CurlTalk Cream and Mousse, and these are my results! I’ve never tried a cream and a mousse together but loved the results. SO MUCH SHINE 🙌🏻 I got the cream and the new mousse from my local Ulta, but make sure you get the mousse that says silicone free. ✔️ I’ll put a link in my bio to the mousse, and all the tools I used including the brush are in my Amazon store (link in bio). Do y’all like seeing bits of my morning routine in stories like this? Let me know and I’ll be sure to record more! 🎥

My tanning bed ritual as a teenager came to halt when I had a scare with pre-cancerous sun damage that required 2 procedures to remove. (Get your yearly exam!) Back in high school, I tanned religiously in a tanning bed trying to get as dark as possible. Since then I’ve set out to find the best self tanner, that doesn’t streak, lasts long, fades evenly, and is dark and natural looking. There’s SO much that can go wrong with self-tanning at home, and I’m here to share all my secrets, hacks, and tips while using the @sungoddessinc Mousse.

I just posted a YT video on How to Apply Self Tanning Mousse, Simplified, where I break down step-by-step. No orangey, splotchy, dark hands/feet/wrists/elbows here 🙅🏻Direct link in my bio to watch! 🎥 ☀️Use code GlamMeUp8 for 10% off Sun Goddess!☀️ Have you tried self tanning at home? What do you struggle with when using it? Let me know!

Quick refresh routine using the new @nymbrands #CurlTalk Mousse is up on my IG stories! I show step-by-step I refreshed my day 3 hair, tips for creating volume, and how I use the @denmanbrush to re-define loose curls. ➿

I washed my hair on Sunday and styled using just the mousse. I was impressed with the hold I had from just 1 product, and my hair felt moisturized which is unusual for a mousse. And it’s total SILICONE and ALCOHOL free! It has a creamy texture and doesn’t dry out the hair. I also noticed TONS of shine. ✨

I bought mine from @Ulta, and I’ve put the link in my bio if you want to check it out. If you also go to the link for my Amazon store, you’ll see other items there that I used in my stories such as the brush, diffuser, and leave-in conditioner. 🛍

What do you think? Should I do a YouTube video on it? Lemme know! 👇🏼👇🏼 #notyourmothers #curlyhairroutine #refreshcurlyhair #refreshroutine #3bcurlyhair #3bcurls #finecurlyhair #shortcurlyhair #naturallycurly #curlynaturalhair #healthy_hair_journey #cgmethod #curlygirlmethod #curlyhaircommunity
