Fall Favorites 2014- Hair

Its double does Tuesday!! Lol!! This is the last post in my Fall Favorites series. So let's get into Fall Hair Care!!

Moisturize from the Inside Out

Not only do you have to take care of the outside of your body, you should also take care of what's inside. I did stress the importance of drinking plenty of water with the last post and it is still as important. This is my favorite cup that I take with me everyday to work and just drink water all day. I try to refill this about 4 times during the day. I've noticed a difference in my skin and hair since I've cut out the juice and soda consummation.

Leave-In Conditioners

When it starts to get colder outside, you want to protect your hair from the harsh winds and cold air. It helps to really keep your hair moisturized. I do switch up the products I use on my hair but using a leave-in doesn't change. It really helps with keeping my hair moisturized and retaining the moisture in my hair. I still love my Hello Curlies Leave in and started using the Garnier Fructis Leave in when I straighten my hair. There will be a review on this soon.

Retaining The Moisture

I tend to reach for heavier hair creams and oils during the colder weather. I'm searching for a Shea Butter based hair cream to try out but I have been using this sample of Bee Mine Cream Moisturizer and have been loving it. A more detailed review will be coming with my Brown Box Hair Product Review series. Another moisturizer I still love is my Hello Curlies Buttermilk Moisturizer. Its one of the best ones I've used on my hair. I still use my staple Coconut Oil which works so well with my hair. Also using water before applying any product helps with retaining moisture.

Deep Conditioning

It doesn't matter if you wear your hair straight, wavy or curly, deep conditioning your hair is so important. Your hair needs that extra conditioning if you use a lot of heat or have your ends exposed. Every time I wash my hair, I always deep condition it. It helps so much with giving some life back to your hair and preventing damage. These are a few of my favorites that I use very often. When I don't have time to sit for a while, I'll reach for Aussie 3 Minute Miracle which is amazing!! The times I do have some time to really deep condition, I'll use my Shea Moisture or Curl Max.

Heat Protectants

I decided to give straightening my own hair a try. I don't think I'll be doing it for long, I have so much hair and it hurts my hands lol. I did so much research on products to use to protect my hair. It became overwhelming because there are so many products out there. I decided to give Garnier Fruticis Blow Dry Cream and TRESemme Thermal Creations Heat Spray a try. So far, they have been working well for me. I haven't noticed any heat damage and my hair hasn't been dry at all. I'm working on reviews for these products and my routine for straightening my hair. It's so important to protect your hair from heat and try not to use high amounts of it. 

So that is it for my Fall Favorites for 2014. What are some of your favorite hair products? Have you tried any of the ones mentioned? Comment below and let me know. Stay warm and see you guys Friday!!

Book Review: Dreams Are Built Overnight

Can't believe my birthday is next week, next Monday to be exact! I just want to have a nice, relaxing day. Today I am bringing you another book review (I know, two in one week lol)!

I have to say, I really proud of this guy and everything that he is doing now. I actually went to elementary school with David and he was a pretty cool person(and still is lol). Before this book, he started a company called Sleep Is 4 Suckers which sells apparel with a message behind it. David also expanded into motivational speaking and is a pretty dynamic speaker. I really wanted to support him and read this book because I was really drawn to the title of it.

I honestly did not want to put this book down when I started reading it. I read this book every free moment I had because I really wanted this information to sink in. You can really visualize what David is saying in this book and really picture the message he sharing. He really does drop a lot of amazing knowledge, tips and advice in this book.

Happily Ever Johnson: Registries, Rings and Things

It is crazy how fast this wedding is approaching! I can't believe it is almost February and June will be here before we know it! We have done so much with wedding planning and trying to make sure we have everything covered. First we started with finishing our registries. We started them but it just didn't feel complete. Earlier this month we attended a Sip and Scan event at Macy's. They had representatives from different brands such as Mikasa, Kitchen Aid and All Clad to answer any questions about products and to help you pick out the things you would like to put on your registry. They had a DJ there, passed hors o'derves and mocktails.

Here we are with the scanner having registry fun lol

We didn't have our formal or everyday dinnerware on the registry and finally picked those out. It was hard trying to decide what to go with. For everyday, I was looking for something that was durable since we have a 5 year old and dishware that was going to last. For our formal di…
