The universe surely has one heck of a sense of humor. How else to explain all those times we took it upon ourselves to achieve greatness and ended up looking like something you would find in a meme. Yes, our lack of skill may have something to do with it, but how is it that things look so good when we see them on someone else, and then when we try them, it’s a wretched mess? It has to be the universe standing in our way, it simply has to. Among numerous life fails, we have handpicked the ones that are the most relatable, and once you see one of them you can’t help but laugh along thinking ‘well, at least I’m not alone’.

It can grow out and still look pretty much the same. Unfortunately, committing to this hairstyle meant bleaching my hair more than once. Bleach is extremely damaging to the hair as it strips it of its color instead of directly dyeing over it like regular hair dye.
Although the ombré style is great and requires very little in-house upkeep, I do have to put an extra amount of care into my at-home hair routine. I worked hard this past year to keep my hair moisturized, as I wasn’t about to give up my hair health for a single trend. Through that maintenance, I’ve discovered these 5 techniques that, despite all the bleaching, have helped to keep my hair as healthy as possible: Continue reading

Lately, there seems to be a growing trend in celebrity endorsed hair chews, guaranteeing your hair will grow so many inches per month, and somehow charging $30 per bottle. For a while, I was on the bandwagon but couldn’t actually afford to spend that much money on something I wasn’t sure would even work. Continue reading
One of my favorite things about health and skincare is that I can find a lot of natural remedies with things that I find in my house, which is especially nice because I’d rather have a few multipurpose products than many single purpose ones. One of my absolute favorite products is olive oil because it has a million different uses both health and beauty related – and it’s super easy to find.

I have thick hair. Not even regular thick hair. But like, “I shaved half of my entire head and I still have a full head of hair” hair.

Hairdressers love to pull a big fistful of my hair in their hands and tell me how much I have. Continue reading
