Face of the Day & How I Curl my Hair!

Hi everyone! Hope you're all enjoying your Tuesday. I typically have Tuesdays off which Is why I'm blogging during the day rather than at night! I had the time today to really spend on my makeup so which is why I'm posting a face of the day :) I've never done one of these before so I hope you all enjoy. I'm also including how I curl my hair, my ideal curls are soft and loose, very summertime and effortless.

When I curl my hair, I want it to be quick and simple. I don't curl every last piece, because luckily I have wavy hair and it is easy to blend loose curls with the waves. I use a one inch Hot Tools Helix curling iron that I picked up at Marshalls a few months back for $29.99.

When I curl my hair, I never use the clip on the iron. I wrap sections of hair around it instead, going away from my face. Curling Iron clips always leave nasty dents in the bottom of the curl that won't smooth out until you wash your hair. Even better, when you don't use the clip it is easier to achieve loose beachy curls/waves that last longer.

These are the three hair products I use when I curl my hair, they give it a nice healthy shiny look.

-Garnier Fructis Flexible Hold Anti Humidity Hairspray
-TREsemme Heat Tamer Spray
-CHI Shine Infusion

Before I apply any heat to my hair, I use the TREsemme Heat Tamer Spray to be sure I'm not damaging my hair too much. Applying heat directly to the hair can cause breakage, dryness, and split ends. I then curl my hair with the iron as I described above and spray my Garnier Fructis Flexible Hold Anti Humidity Hairspray which keeps the curls soft but in place all day. Best of all, its super affordable and you can get it at most drugstores and retailers for around $4.00. After I've sprayed my hair with the hairspray, I spritz the CHI Shine Infusion on my hands and run my hands through the ends of my hair for that nice, healthy, put together look. This product is a bit pricey, but its worth it. It gives great shine without a greasy look.

And that's all there is to it! I really hope you all enjoyed my face of the day and mini hair curling tutorial/products I used. Please leave a comment to give me your opinion, I always reply :)
