    my curly hair routine 2020

    I recently revamped by curly hair routine to get the best curls all while keeping things simple and easy. This will be especially important with a newborn on the way as I imagine I won’t have much time for showering, let alone a full hair care routine. I shared my full curly hair routine on my YouTube channel, which you can checkout below.

    my curly hair essentials

These are products that are essential to my routine for perfect, frizz-free curls almost every time. Since my last post, I’ve added new products and techniques that have been game changers.

    Travel Makeup Bag & Essentials

    I’m going out of town this weekend in Duluth for Grandma’s Marathon. I’m not running in any of the events, but my good friends are and I’m tagging along for the ride. This is the first trip of the summer out of three planned so far, and I’ve been preparing for what I want to bring with for a bit. I’m testing out some products that are air travel friendly for the trip to San Francisco in just a few weeks. So excited! Makeup I definitely tend to over pack everything when I travel. I usually justify it by saying I’d rather have options than leave something behind that I needed. I…
