December Wish List


This week my computer decided to break so there wasn't a lot I could do. My sleep was still a little messed up too, I woke up at 4 AM for the last few days. I ended up watching a lot of Eddie Murphy movies and The Great Gatsby. My computer was finally fixed today so I'm ready to start working hard again :)

KISS InstaWave Tutorial & Review


Sorry for the late post, I kept forgetting! My sleep schedule this week has been crazy. I've been trying to work when I can, but I also have been spamming Futurama and I started playing Hearthstone. I've been having a lot of fun.

KISS InstaWave Tutorial & Review


This is my tutorial and review for the KISS InstaWave hair curler, sent to me courtesy of KISS Hair Appliances. Thank you!



The KISS Instawave is a fully automatic tangle-free hair curler. It features a dial that curls your hair for you. It has a low and high setting, which reaches a maximum temperature of 420 degrees. It also has a automatic shut off after 90 minutes.

Here's my quick guide on how it works!


Before!


Ready to go! The first thing you notice when you plug it in is a high pitched noise, but it's completely safe.


Hold the curler vertically, and place a small section of hair across it.


Hold the dial either left or right, and the curler automatically catches and curls the hair. It really won't tangle it, at all, I swear.

Hold for 5-10 seconds, holding longer for tighter curls and less for beachy waves, then pull the InstaWave down vertically, letting the hair out. Switch between curling right and curling left to create more natural looking curls.


First one done!


My hair is pretty long, so sometimes the ends wouldn't curl, like this. So I would either recurl just the end, or I while curling it the first time, I would pull the curler down slightly as I held the dial.


Almost there :)


And DONE! Remember to finish it with a little hair spray.

Here's what I thought of it! While the KISS InstaWave is easy to use, practice makes perfect! I recommend trying it out at least once before your special day. The first time I used it, it didn't look too nice, but it looked great the second time as you can tell from these pictures.

PROS:
Easy to use
Safe
Doesn't tangle hair

CONS:
Doesn't curl full length of hair if you have really long hair like me

Overall, I liked this product and plan to use it again.

You can purchase the KISS InstaWave for $59.99. In the US, it's available at Target, Ulta & Amazon.com. In Canada, it's available at Walmart.

Hair Care


This week I worked quite a bit and did a photo shoot for an upcoming post. I watched a few movies and started working out again. It was a pretty fun and relaxing week, considering. Exercising keeps me so zen.

Hair Care

This weeks post was going to be a review on a hair product, but I completely underestimated how much time it would take, so here's a few quick tips on how to keep your hair healthy instead!

I've been growing my hair out for a few years, and I'd like to think I've kept it pretty healthy. I had a lot of short hair styles throughout high school, which wasn't a great idea, but it really made me appreciate having long hair again. I vowed to keep it healthy this time around, since when I had long hair when I was a kid, I completely thrashed it.

1. Don't dye it!

A pretty obvious one, but dying your hair damages it a lot. There are ways to keep your hair healthy even if you dye it, but I don't know enough about that. I haven't dyed my hair at all since I decided to grow it out. Wigs are a better way for me to go when I feel like changing up my hair.

2. Don't heat it up!

This includes things like hair straighteners and blow dryers, but also hot water. If you need to use a straightener or a curling iron, you can use a little heat resistant spray. When washing it, try to go for luke warm water instead of scolding hot.

3. Conditioner and leave-in conditioner

Condition your hair thoroughly and use a leave-in conditioner daily.

4. Brush your hair before you wash it, not while it's wet!

Brushing your hair while it's wet can damage it, so opt to brush it before you hop into the shower, not after. Bonus points, your hair won't end up in the drain!

5. Avoid tying it up

Pony-tail holders can sometimes rip your hair, so avoid pony tails if you can. Go for something like a low braid, or a bun and tie it with some cloth instead.

6. Just be careful

Be patient when brushing your hair, and try not to snag it on anything in general.

That's all the ways I know to keep my hair healthy! Do you have any more tips? Share them below!
