Hello Long Hair

I’ve made it to one of my goal lengths which is the top of my bra band length. This photo is all my bio hair no hair extensions what’s so ever.

When it’s curled its of course shorter as seen with this photo

It’s taken me surprisingly not that long to grow it to my length,  approximately three years or so.

And even though there has been times I’ve wanted to cut it I’m happy I haven’t. For the most part I’m pretty low maintenance with my hair. I don’t usually use heat on it unless I’m curling it and I always use heat protectant. I’ve maybe blow dried it possibly five times in the years it’s been growing.

I would definitely say scalp massages have really helped, and tho I do use coconut oil on my hair and scalp I’d say it has helped but the scalp massages with my head down with the blood rushing to my head has done wonders lol. Because the blood goes to the roots and your hair grows from there. Plus it feels good to get or give yourself a scalp massage.

My next goal length is Mid-back length as seen in this chart.

That’s the chart I’ve followed since growing my hair out. It’s just a cute guide to follow and I’ve held on to it in my phone. I think it’s also important to take photos of your hair growth as you grow it out. I do think it’s important to get dustings or micro trims as they are called. I usually will give my self a micro trim every 3 months or so just to remove the dead ends and I know some people who are hair stylists would probably prefer people go in to get it done but honestly why am I going to go and fork over more than $20 bucks when I can do it my self and it costs nothing.

Its easy too do and takes me less than 20 minutes. I’m excited to see my hair length next summer and I will likely go to a stylist next year to get it done like cut into a long style with maybe some long layers but right now I’m good with how it is.

One of my hair goals sorta is to have hair like YouTuber Carli bybel not as long as her hair cause it’s like down to her butt but I’d love hair middle of my back like the bottom of my bra band at the back so yeah mid back lol 😂.

And yes I’m obsessed with long hair if you haven’t figured that out lol. PS I still take biotin just not as much as I had been taking before.

Hello Suzy Shier

It’s been about a minute since I’ve gotten new clothing well today was the day. Before I go on I should mention that I used to shop at this store like 8 years ago. Also deep down I love business casual attire. Pieces you can mix and match as well use for going out for drinks or date night or work.

So the last time I went to this store I noticed this gorgeous plaid skirt. It’s soft but heavy enough that you could rock hose or tights under it. Perfect for fall or even winter.

Also I love tops with bell sleeves. I found this gorgeous royal blue blouse with a tie detail in the back.

The skirt is so freaking cute and so comfy. I had to get another one but in a different pattern which they had.

The top I didn’t buy but did like it lol. I think I’ll get a lot of uses out of the two skirts. I don’t own many skirts as far as business casual types go. I find clothes shopping to be a pain unless I’m in the mood. Id like to find another pair of dress pants and another pair of shoes then I believe my business casual attire will be good to go.

Over & Out

4RP Vibrant Dark Auburn | Casting Cream Gloss By L’Oreal

So there are zero reviews of this colour online as far as YouTube reviews go. I was speaking to my God mother earlier this morning, yup we talk even though she’s passed. I asked what her thoughts were on me going a reddish colour. She liked the idea so I went ahead and bought two boxes. Lucky for me they were on sale.

Anyways ive been loving these L’Oreal Casting Cream Glosses since I started using them. I’ve gone from super dark brown to using the golden tones. And I thought I would look good with more red in my hair. Ever since I posted the photo of me with a red wig on my Instagram

people seem to really like it and I love how I look. So I took the plunge and I’m totally in love wth the colour my hair turned out. For the full review watch the video.

L’Oréal Casting Cream Gloss 503 Golden Chocolate 🍫

So nothing is more pleasing than a hair pick me up. And though my natural colour is quite pretty the grey isn’t. And let’s keep it real a colour refresh is pleasing. It makes you feel good. Everyone knows I’ve been on a brown hair colour kick for awhile and the last time I used L’Oréal Casting Cream Gloss was back in April the 25th to be exact. I had used the colour 4G Dark Golden Brown and it was a beautiful colour but very dark.

Well I wanted to try something different this time around and went for this colour. Once again I did what the pro tip was and dampened my hair before colouring it. I think it really helps with applying the colour.

The top photo is before & the bottom after.

It’s really not a huge difference just more richness to my color and shiny. I’m absolutely in love with it. I know in the sun light it will have lots of dimensions and the red will shine. One of my favourite things about the Casting Cream Gloss by L’Oréal is that because it’s not permanent there is no demarcation line when it wears out. And it blends your grey away but doesn’t completely cover them. And so they blend seamlessly with the rest of your hair.

OGX Coconut 🌴 Oil Hair Mist

Since I’ve accepted my wavy / curly hair type I’ve also  succumbed to product collecting lol. Well I think I found my holy grail hair product. This stuff is amazing!!. It leaves your hair soft, touchable, and natural looking and it smells amazing it has coconut oil and bamboo extract in it.

Got2B Beach Trippin Spray

IMG_6782

I think I finally have the hang of this damn spray. So what it is is a salt infused spray to get your hair to wave up for mermaid hair.

Okay so silly me I’ve been using it all wrong. Or maybe it’s so humid out that it’s helped but I’m gonna go with the way I sprayed it into my hair.

It says to use it on damp or dry hair and to scrunch. Also to either blow dry or let the wind do the rest.

In the past I would spray quite close to my hair and it would leave my hair feeling crunchy and not overly pleasant but the trick to using this spray is it do it further away and sprints and scrunch.

Also I rarely ever use my blow dryer. And prefer to air dry my hair. Less damage and it never gets how I want it unless a stylist does it at a salon. But today I’ve finally mastered this spray. My hair still feels soft. It’s got beautiful waves in it and it’s full and healthy feeling and looking. Now that I know how to use it I’m thrilled.

I had been using Marc Anthony’s Beach Spray but it s a bit more than Got2Bs and I’ve had this bottle for a while now and I thought I did a review for it but I guess I didn’t. You can also use this spray if you have straight hair as well.

Walmart Sells it as well Amazon.

I think wavy hair is so pretty and effortless I’m just super thrilled that I now know how to use this spray. I think also to if your hair is to wet it wouldn’t work as well. Which I think has also been my problem in the past. I used about five sprays misting and scrunching. The further away from your hair the more of the spray spreads out. The better the results you will have.

When it comes to my hair personally on a day to day bases I really don’t do much with it. Usually I put 1 Velcro roller in my bangs and let the rest do whatever. But now using this spray the right way at least for me it will look put together like “Oh I just woke up like this” even though really I put some effort into it lol.

What’s your favourite beach spray ?

Using Clip-in Extensions For Highlights

Remember that set of extensions I bought last year from that beauty supply store the Strawberry blonde set If not click here.

Anyways the other day I put a few pieces in my hair sure they don’t match my hair color at all but who says they have to if you use them as high lights or low lights for that matter.

Today I threw a few piece in my hair and then braided it. It looks pretty cool if I do say so my self. Has anyone tried this before and if not would you?. Why damage your hair with bleach and foil high lights when you can just use extensions.

And then when you get sick of having them all you do is un-clip and your good to go. Also the clips on this set are super strong and stay put. You could also get the same effect if you wear tape-ins put a different color in and your set.

What do you think?
