3 Simple Ways to Up your Ponytail Game

I’ve been there… Your warm bed sucks you in and the last thing you want to do is get up. You have snoozed all 6 of your alarms and nothing will get you out of your bed. After 30 minutes you now have no choice, it’s time to get up. In a panic, you try to figure out what to wear and how you’re going to look like you DIDN’T just wake up! Girl, here are 3 simple ways you can up your ponytail game.

Wash your hair

I know what you’re thinking, this girl knows I don’t have time and I still have to wash my hair?! Yes, that’s right, but we’re washing our hair with dry shampoo today!

This is an essential first step for the perfect ponytail. The dry shampoo soaks up the oils in dirty hair while giving volume! This volume gives the illusion that we tried really hard, even though we didn’t! 😉 Apply your dry shampoo only to the roots because when you apply it to the ends of your hair they can begin to look dull and lifeless.

When you use your dry shampoo try flipping your head upside down. This will ensure a quick and easy application and you will receive the most volume.

Try this Sulfate and Paraben Free Dry shampoo!

Keep your chin up

Have you ever heard of a power pose? Posing like a superhero with your chin up and chest out for a few minutes a day will actually boost your confidence level and decreases stress! So how does this relate to your hair?

A huge struggle of mine is the saggy ponytail! Who else has been there? Lol. As the day goes on, all of your hair falls out at the base of your neck and you look like a hot mess by 12 pm. This pose will help you feel confident and your hair will stay in place all day.

When grabbing your hair for your ponytail LOOK UP! Keep your chin up and tell yourself you love yourself and secure your ponytail without ever dropping your chin. You will never have a saggy ponytail ever again and all that hair at the base of your neck will stay nice and tight all day!

Brush your teeth… I mean Hair?

Grab your toothbrush! Random I know. How many times have you gone into battle with your flyways around your hairline and part line?! Everyday, huh? This is the easiest way to get rid of these guys without having super crunchy hair from hairspray! Without flyaways holding you back, you will look put together and ready to take on the world.

Get a new toothbrush you have never used on your actual teeth before and spray hairspray directly onto the bristles! Gently brush stray hairs back with the toothbrush before the hairspray dries and Ta-da! NO MORE STRAY HAIRS!

Protect our world and go biodegradable with these amazing toothbrushes!

These 3 products will change your life…

I see that face of horror you hold when you finally gain awareness of the number of beauty products you own. Filled with empty promises you now guard your heart against the brutality you feel when brands sell you pretty products but you never feel the true power you desire. Yes, we’re still talking about beauty products! I have been in search for years for products that actually do their job they promise you so here is a list of favorite products of mine that ACTUALLY do their job!

Natural Deodorant

Until recently I have always used the same deodorant and never had an issue with it. Lately, I started to get these really bad reactions under my arms. I began to venture out and try new things. Everything from crystals to putties and pastes and even tried making my own! Honestly, every time I walked into the drugstore I was in search of a better solution. After months of searching, I found my holy grail.

Schmidt’s Bergamont + Lime Natural Deodorant has changed my world. All-natural and free of harsh fragrances, aluminum, and parabens, I now smell amazing AND it last ALL DAY! With ingredients like baking soda, coconut oil, shea butter, and more this Deodorant is Certified vegan and cruelty-free. To all my gluten-free peeps… yes its gluten-free too!!

To use: Gently hold the stick up to your skin to warm and soften the product. In addition, begin to kindly apply and wave your arms in the air like you just don’t care!

Oil-free makeup remover

How many times have you battled the wonderful raccoon eyes that come with mascara? Every day huh! What if you’re on the opposite end of the spectrum and have beautiful lash extensions? Did you know that oil actually breaks down the lash adhesive! As a lash artist, I have searched for quality oil-free makeup removers since I have started lashing and this is hands down my favorite.

Mary Kay’s oil-free eye makeup remover is a must-have for any makeup lover. Designed for those with sensitive skin and eyes, you will never have to wonder if this product will cause irritation or discomfort. I myself have such a hard time finding something that doesn’t irritate them. For instance, with my contacts especially my eyes would always itch like crazy with other removers and I have never had an issue with this guy! Because Mary Kay cares about the quality of their products enough that they actually had it ophthalmologist tested! This go-to has even earned the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval and is a consistent best seller.

To use: Lightly soak a cotton pad and press lightly onto eye area for about 15-30 seconds while it does its magic. Makeup will disappear right before your eyes WITHOUT any harsh rubbing!
