Save Or Spend?

When it comes down to fashion, it’s obvious that there are thousands brands some expensive and some inexpensive. While spending more money may limit the entertainment that week or require a little saving up, some items are worth the money, if you feel you will wear them.
      In this post, we will go over the basic necessities of fashion and whether it is better to save or spend on items within that category.
        1. Denim- Jeans and other denim items are extremely popular in society today. Here is a category I would suggest spending a little bit more money to ensure quality or simply finding the pair of jeans which fits you best.

How to Achieve Texture and Hold in Silky Soft Hair

Hello everyone and welcome back to the blog. Today's post is going to be all about getting Texture in silky soft hair. Aside from requiring limited care, silky hair can be a humongous pain for those who want curls,waves and definition in braids. If you have straight hair or hair which can be easily tamed I would recommend rocking your natural texture, however for special events or a dressier day, you can achieve the texture which is needed.

       1 Apply Hold Prior to Curling or styling- I have super soft hair which usually requires very tight managed braiding and usually has no point in curling it. I have found that applying a brushable or flexible hairspray such as Aussie Mega Hairspray. This smells amazing and barely feels like hairspray. If you are styling wet hair or if you prefer styling gel over hairspray, feel free to use that, or you can use both for extra Hold.
        2. Use Texturing Products- if you enjoy voluminous braids or dry textured curls texturizing …

If you shower at night run a smoothing oil or serum through the ends, brush it straight, and braid it while it is still damp. Sleep on that, by morning your hair should be dry if it is not blow dry on a cool setting and straighten/curl, or if you are happy with the way it looks, leave it natural. If you shower in the morning, after the shower decide how you …
