Winter Hair

But life gets in the way, I forget to stay on top of it and before I know it, the corners of my lips are cracked and my chin is so dry and irritated that it even has little rash-like bumps on it! Then I spend the next month trying to turn it around, but the heavy emollient creams strong enough to tackle the chapped skin only inflame and irritate the rash, causing dermatitis and break outs, landing me in my dermatologist’s office, hoping my insurance will cover it!! It’s enough to drive a woman nuts. So this year, I am determined to stay on the offense and keep my skin balanced, moisturized and happy. I will try not to let my scarf or the collar of my coat rub against my chin and cause chaffing.I will try not to take scolding hot showers but warm ones instead. XO, Amy Nadine. Curls & Braid.

This will be the beginning of your braid. 3.Taking that section, separate it into two smaller sections. 4. Styling Hair. Perfect Mermaid Curls.

Although “perfect” is a relative term, this method for curling hair is pretty much perfect by my standards, mostly because it isn’t fussy. While I’m a sucker for both ringlets and Californian waves, I like my own curls somewhere in between: relaxed but bouncy. Mermaid-like. Supplies: 1″ curling iron, brush, and hair sprayTime: 45 minutes (for thick hair) All of the magic happens with Revlon’s “Helen of Troy” ceramic 1″ curling iron.

For those who have long, thick hair like me, you might find that larger curling barrels produce the most pathetic excuse for “waves” that fall out within the hour, regardless of the amount of hair spray. I’ve found that the 1″ barrel creates tight waves that look good for at least 5-6 hours (though they do relax over time). For hairspray, I’m a fan of Tigi’s Hard Head, which has a strong hold without the severe crunchiness. Half Up Half Down.
