I present to you guys… THE BEST HAIR TIES EVER!!
Having long, heavy hair means needing strong, amazing quality hair ties.
Every hair tie I’ve tried in the past would NOT hold up my hair. They were too loose and would stretch out after one use.
I needed good quality black hair ties, and I didn’t want to spend $10 on them because I don’t really tie my hair that often.
Then one day I was walking around Forever 21 and I saw these bad guys. I picked them up and checked the price. $1.90. I stretched the hair tie. Still in shape. I wore it around my wrist. Still tight.
And that’s when I knew they were perfect.
I payed for them and tried them on as soon as I got home. And for once in my life, my long, heavy hair, was tied up in a high, painless ponytail.
And until this day I use these hair ties when I need one.
So girls with long hair or short, thin or thick, try out these hair ties. No doubt you will fall in love with them ❤
I just came back from Walmart & Shopper’s DM, so I thought I’d quickly show you what I got and my first impressions.
First is Essence Silky Touch Blush in “10 Adorable”. What the name says is true, these blushes are quite soft and not chalky. This blush is great to give a natural look, and is also buildable.
Next is NYC In a Minute nail polish in “Minted On Broadway”. I wouldn’t say the nail polish dries in a minute, but it still is quicker than other nail polishes. And with just two coats, you get beautiful nails with lots of shine!
Lastly is Pure Ice Matte Top Coat in “Frost Finish”. This top coat does truly do the job of making your nails matte! It also dries quick and only cost $1.97 for quite the amount of product.
I’ve always been curious about the Essence mascaras because they seem to be a big hit or miss. When I saw Shoppers Drug Mart had a BOGO sale for the Get BIG! Lashes mascaras, I decided to finally try them out. After reading loads and loads of reviews, I chose the Volume Curl and Volume Boost mascaras.
First, let’s talk about Volume Curl.
- Very light, unoticable scent (this is coming from a girl who is very sensitive to scents)
- Price ($3.99CAD)
- Curls lashes
- Couple of small clumps after 2 coats.
- Lots of product comes off onto the brush, causing lashes to clump together
- Doesn’t volumize
- Weighs down lashes
Next is Volume Boost.
- No clumps (even after 3 coats)
- Very light, unoticable scent
- Brush is good size
- Give short lashes some length
- Wet formula (causes spidery lashes)
- Heavy formula (weighs down lashes)
- Flakes on eyelids
- Kind of makes eyes burn
- Does not volumize
- Not buildable
Since the mascara was weighing down my eyelashes, I tried wiping off the access on a tissue before applying the mascara and after three coats it just gave a natural look. It didn’t work for my long lashes or my sisters short lashes. This mascara also made my eyes burn a little.
OVERALL RATING: 2/5
WOULD I REPURCHASE: No, I would not repurchase.
Coconut oil is the number one reason why my hair is as long and healthy as it is today. I’ve been using this one for 7 years now and have never found one better.
Massaging your scalp helps stimulate the blood circulation which promotes hair growth. Using coconut oil when doing so just means more benifits for your hair!
Coconut oil is the one oil that actually penetrates deep into your hair shaft.. That means soft and shiny hair for days!!
Using this method on my hair once a week helps my hair grow a whole inch per month! You can keep the oil in your hair for as little as 30 minutes, or upto 8 hours (overnight).
I prefer this over pure coconut oil because as weird as this may sound, pure coconut oil dries out my scalp and makes it itchy.
Another great thing about this hair oil is that it contains three extra ingredients that do wonders for your hair: henna, amla, and lemon. Here’s what they do…
Amla and lemon: when added with coconut oil, amla and lemon help make hair stronger and healthy looking.
Henna: along with other herbs, helps in maintaining its natural colour.
You can find this coconut oil at the Indian store for under $5.
A quick warning though that using this oil overtime will change your hair colour due to the henna. But if you don’t have a problem with that, then I’d definitely recommend you buy it because it’s great for making your hair look and feel more healthy.
