Eu que sou totalmente contra calor no cabelo, tenho horror a secador, chapinha e afins, adorei a dica e está super explicado. O resultado é um cabelo cacheado de aparência bem natural. Vale a pena conferir. Fica mesmo parecendo o cabelo da Gisele, e só precisa de uma meia comprida qualquer, sem uso de babyliss ou chapinha.
It's not always when we hear something new about how to take better care of our hair. This is why I was pleasantly surprised to read this post about innocent daily habits ruining our hair. I'm guilty of some, and always found some others not so innocent. It is truly worth a read on Refinary29.
On my first post about how to do your manicure at home, there were some videos and references in Portuguese. But today I found on Youtube, 2 very helpful videos in English, with actual new tips on different tools to do the same job explained in the Brazilian videos. I really enjoy them and will be trying those tools myself soon.
The first video is how to clean up your cuticles while applying nail polish.
The second video, is about all steps for a manicure at home that looks professionally done. Based on my own experience, it is more down to a steady hand than about techniques. I know what to do, I know how to do, but it never looks good when I do it, simply because my hand is not steady enough for anything that needs precision. Does it make sense? My manicure will look good enough, but not as perfect as I want them to look.
I enjoyed all videos I watched from aLoveTart, and highly recommend them to anyone interested in hand care.
How to detangle hair? My hair doesn't tangle. Seriously. It is not straight, or curly, just naturally wavy. It used to tangle really bad when I was a child, when I loved to wash it making a big mess all up my head, just like shown in shampoo advertisement: lots of foam, all rubbed against the scalp, on top of my head. The final product was a child invariablycrying, trying to detangle those long tresses with the help of loads of conditioner. Yes, my hair has always been long, much to my mother despair, as as a child I would never let anyone cut it anywhere near my shoulders. I believe my hair doesn't tangle anymore due to a complete change in the way I wash it. It's not down to any product or tool, it is a shift in the mechanic act itself. All I do is to wash it without making a mess on top of my head. My hair always down, bellow my shoulders. First, I shampoo the scalp massaging it, then with my fingers I slightly pull the product down the length, finger combing it while I go, gently massaging the length of my hair. And I rinse it all off repeating the same movement. For the conditioner, all the same procedure, but starting midshaft as I don't want it anywhere near my scalp. Once finished finger combing product through hair, I make a tight bun on top of my head and finish whatever is left to do: shaving, scrubbing. This way the conditioner has time to penetrate, while keeping hair still, untangled. This is how it doesn't get fuzzy anymore. Then it is time to rinse it all off, while finger combing again. I remove all products entirely, never leave any residue whatsoever, and most importantly, rinse water should be as cold as possible.
How To Detangle Hair
I don't even own a hair brush. For over 20 years I have been using a wide teeth wooden comb. Until I moved into the desert, 5 years ago, I had stopped using conditioner all together. Now I use some because of the extreme dryness, but if you live in a humid area, and has an oily scalp, you can skip conditioner too and still have beautiful hair, with less hassle, less expenditure, and less time and effort while washing it.
