Someone recently told me that I always looked so polished (thank you!) and asked if I did my own hair and makeup for the morning show segments I’ve been on. Yes, I do. While I’m not big-time enough to have a personal hair and makeup artist to follow me around, I’ve learned quite a bit from the hair and makeup artists I work with and now have the tools to do it myself.
Not to get all infomercial on you, but you can too.
Believe it or not, this little handy tool from John Frieda by Conair has changed the way I style my hair. It’s actually made my getting ready time so much quicker. I now don’t have to blow dry my hair as often and no matter what it looks like dry, this curling wand smooths it out and gives it some life.
Before you tell me you easier said than done or oh, but I’ll burn myself (which is exactly what this newscaster said to me off air), try it.
Take sections of hair and wrap around the wand, away from your face. The trick is to not curl too close to your head and make sure to leave a bit of hair free at the bottom for a more modern look.
This is my other great hair day secret. Coconut oil isn’t only great for smoothies to help you digest, but I keep a bit of it in a jar in my shower for a once a week hair mask.
Use only a nickel size of oil and you may have to heat up the jar to get it less solid. Keep this in your hair for at least 10 minutes and up to even a day if your hair is extremely damaged and dry.
The first time I tried this, I actually went out to dinner with it in my hair pulled back and it looked like I hadn’t showered in days, so I don’t recommend doing it for that long unless you really need it or are not going out in public! You may have to shampoo a couple of times to get it out, but guarantee that it will be the best hair mask you’ve ever tried—and eaten. Have a great hair day every day now!
