brittle. And you want to wear cute hair styles but when you do your hair turns into a disaster after words. So how can you look cute and have healthy hair? You make a slick backed ponytail.

The ponytail is extra good for your hair because you slick it back with conditioner. Just like the heat makes your hair dry, if you add conditioner it makes your hair healthy. The heat bakes in the conditioner, so when you leave it in you hair in the hot sun, it ‘bakes’ it into your hair.

To make it put a little bit of deep, heavy conditioner in your hair and then make a tight ponytail. Now, put a little conditioner in your hands and rub your hands together. Now, run your hands over your hair to slick it back a little more. Top it off with a fabulous headband and (bam!) you have a cute and good-for-your-hair hairstyle.

Winter is finally over, and you know what that means? Girls with perfect beach waves looking perfect while you sit with your messy bun looking not so perfect. And on the very (very) rare occasions when you do get gorgeous hair, it takes the whole rest of your day. But there is hope yet, it is possible to have the perfect beach waves without spending your whole day getting that ‘it’ look. And it’s called . . .  keep reading and you’ll find out.

(for real now) It’s called, ‘the messy bun and spray’

Now I now that sounds weird and surprisingly like your normal messy bun and go routine, and it is, except in this routine, you take the bun out. Here’s how it goes.

(shower version)

Take a shower, towel dry you hair until it’s damp, now make a bun.  But, because there are many kinds of buns out there I’m going to describe how to make this certain one. Any other and you won’t get waves.

And these . . .

Take your hair and start to make a pony tail. Once you have wrapped your hairband around the base of it one time, take your hair (keeping the half pony in) and twist. Twist your hair until it starts to wrap around the base of the pony and then wrap the twist into a ball. Then take the hair band and wrap it around the ball until you get to the middle of the ball and leave it there.  Tada, you have your bun.

Wait until you are about to go to the beach, undue your bun, and spray with hair spray. You should now have the perfect beach waves. When you go swimming put your hair up again and wait till your hairs almost dry. You know have perfect beach waves, again!

And these!

This will make your skin soft and incredable smooth.

My treatment will leave your skin soft and incredibly smooth.

Facial are an essential part of keeping your face clean and glowing, but they are costly (what isn’t these days?) and some can hurt like face peels. So I have discovered the perfect DIY (do it yourself) facial.

First, take a shower, feeling clean and beautiful makes the whole experience nicer. Also the steam in the shower helps open up your pores so they can release dirt and grime that can cause pimples.

After getting out of the shower run a wash cloth under hot water and rub the wash cloth on your face, this also helps to open up pores.

After applying the washcloth use a facial scrub. You can easily make one by putting honey (if you can, use Manuka honey, it has special healing properties) and sugar into a bowl and mixing, easy as pie, right? Then put the scrub on your face and move your hands in slow circular movements, this opens the pores and takes out all the dirt and washes it away.

Wash the scrub off with warm water. After the scrub completely washes off, take a handful of honey (once again, preferable Manuca honey) and put it evenly on to your face. This soothes skin that might have been irritated by the scrub and also moisturizes. Leave the honey on for at least 30 minutes. My favorite pastime during this is to paint my nails, that way when  your completely finished with your facial, you’ll have beautiful nails too.

Only paint your toenails, because if you paint your nails you might rub off the polish when removing  the honey. I find that after this whole experience my skin is left soft and surprisingly smooth, and that I am also calm and relaxed. This treatment is perfect for a night in with friends  or a mother/daughter bonding experience.
