What are natural hair make-up brushes ?

Brushes that are made of natural hair contain many tiny spaces in them when seen microscopically . Hence when you use them they pick up a lot more pigments.

Tips for maintaining these must have brushes —-

– do not blow into the brush bristles and distort its shape to remove excess makeup.Instead, tap the brush against your hand or on a tissue .
This keeps the brush in shape for longer .

While cleaning the brush never rub the bristles instead rinse with running water in the direction of the bristles .

Never soak the entire brush because the wood and the adhesive that holds the bristles and the shaft together can dissolve.

After cleaning also remember to sculpt the bristles into the original shape before it dries.

Don’t burn your hair with the Blow dryer,Flat iron & or Curling iron…

FrizzyHair

An important tip worth passing on. Your blow dryer, flat iron, and curling iron can make your hair look great.

But if you misuse those tools or have the wrong ones, your hair may look like it’s ready for a lengthy stint in hair rehab.
1. Buy Good Tools
Hair styling tools don’t have to cost a fortune. But they do need basic features,
Look for tools that offer different heat settings. “The cheaper ones have just one setting,”
Check to see if your tool displays heat temperatures. For instance, some hair irons can be dialed to a variety of heat settings, from 175 or so to nearly 400. (The 400-degree setting is “definitely too high” )
2.Don’t touch your hair with the nozzle. That’s right, get close to the hair, but don’t ever let the nozzle touch your hair. You will torch the poor cuticle.
That’s all there is to it. Rough drying, round brushing, whatever it is. Keep a little space between the nozzle and the hair.

3. Protect your Hair from the Heat

There are hair products made to protect your hair from the heat of dryers, curling irons, or flat irons. Many of them use silicone as a protective coating for your hair.

4. Study Styling Technique

A little professional advice never hurts. Ask your hair stylist to go over how to style your hair, even if you’ve done it yourself for years.The stylist may be able to show you shortcuts, or newer techniques. Set up a separate appointment, or ask in advance for some extra time at your next visit. That will give your stylist time to work with you.

Easy Breezy Hair Styles- Get Ready for Summer

Folawn’s #3 Get Ready for Summer Idea

1. Tousled style is sexy year-round, and now you have the warm, humid air to help enhance your natural texture. To get the look, divide damp hair into three sections and loosely braid each. Unravel your locks when they’re dry, then set your waves with a texturizing spray.

2. Not only does a braid look chic for summer it also keeps your hair contained tightly from harsh rays from the sun. Shampoo & condition and add a leave-in conditioner with sunscreen to protect the hair from the sun’s harsh rays. Fasten with a snag free elastic band. An extra bonus: your hair will look fabulous for the party after the sun goes down. Take the braid out and shake your hair. Beautiful, instant waves without the fuss.

3.Everybody loves—and loves to wear—ponytails (unless you’ve got a cute pixie cut, of course). But we bet you didn’t realize how many different versions of this classic style are out there. Here is a sweet and laid-back rocking this low pony with natural texture.

At-Home Tip: You don’t want your part to be too perfect. Let you hair fall somewhat along the center and then pull it back.
