VIDEO: Thermal Hair Care - Hot Head Deep Conditioning Cap Review & Tutorial

Sunday, August 13, 2017

Having naturally curly hair means some serious dryness all year round, so I love doing deep conditioning treatments. If you've ever had a deep conditioning treatment done at the salon, they oftentimes will use a thermal hair cap to help the deep conditioner penetrate longer into the hair cuticle. With the Thermal Hair Care Hot Head, you can get a salon-like treatment right at home. Similar to a rice pack, it is heated in the microwave and stays warm for around 30 minutes.

Check out the video above to see how to use the Hot Head Hair Cap, and my results.

In this tutorial, I used the new DevaCurl Melt Into Moisture Matcha Butter Mask. Check out my full review here and enter to the giveaway to win a set of the new DevaCurl masks!

Thursday, August 10, 2017

BECCA Cosmetics never disappointing with their quality products! Aside from their stunning highlighters, I've been loving their recent lip product releases. The new Lush Lip Colour Balms recently came out so I thought I'd share my thoughts and swatch each one on my lips.
These creamy and lightweight balms contain castor oil, jojoba seed oil, and no parabens.

The collection has 8 shades, ranging from nude, pinks, coral, and deep reds, browns, and violet. There are 3 shades of brown, which is great for various skin tones to find the perfect nude. Not so much for me though since brown is not as flattering on me. Overall, I loved the nude, pink, and coral shades. I can also see myself loving the plum and burgundy shades this fall and winter.

Cafe Au Lait

Almond Fraise

Ginger Vanille

Chai Creme

Milk Chocolate

Toasted Hazelnut

Cherry Ganache

Black Violet

These are available only at ULTA stores, for $22 each. Which shade is your favorite?

DevaCurl's new curly hair masks, the Deep Sea Repair Seaweed Strengthening Mask and the Melt Into Moisture Matcha Butter Conditioning Mask, were released just in time for summer. They're designed to repair dry, damaged hair for moisturized defined curls.

DevaCurl invited me to NYC with tons of other gorgeous textured hair bloggers to test out the masks, share our thoughts, and celebrate natural hair. Check out this incredible video they put together for #CurlsUnmasked, where everyone shares their story transitioning their hair to its natural texture. DevaCurl was such a fun company to work for, and I was amazed at how they embrace natural hair and seem to care about providing quality products.

I met so many amazing bloggers with tons of different hair textures from wavy, curly, to coily. Cassy, who has gorgeous tight curls and I are teaming up to each giveaway a set of the new masks. Check out her YouTube channel here and Instagram! Giveaway details below.

Now for my thoughts and results from the masks!

Above is my incredible results from using the DevaCurl Deep Sea Repair Mask. The mask contains restorative seaweed, strengthening blend of rice, soy, and wheat proteins. Primarily a protein treatment, this mask is great to use every couple weeks to strengthen curls. If you have heat damage, color treated, or are transitioning to your natural curls this mask is perfect for you. In my before and after results above, you can see where my curls were more defined, less frizzy, and shiny.

The DevaCurl Melt Into Moisture Matcha Butter Conditioning Mask contains moisturizing matcha green tea butter, almond oil, and protective beet root extract. It's perfect when your hair needs a pick me and is looks dry and dull. It can be used for a quick 5 minute mask, or left on longer with a heat cap overnight.

Urban Decay's latest edition to the Naked collection is the Naked Heat eyeshadow palette, released this summer. It contains an array of firey, warm, shadows and a handful of neutrals. I have always been a fan of Urban Decay's shadows, and this palette is definitely a win. I also received some of the new limited edition shades of Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide-On Eyeliner Pencils, and a few lipsticks to match.

This warm makeup tutorial uses deep rose gold tones, burgundy, and purple hues. I paired it with a warm-neutral blush and deep nude lipstick.
