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!!

  2. Great favorites! I haven't tried any of these. I don't use a lot of "hair products" in general. Just hair spray, shampoo, conditioner, and hair masks.

    1. I don't use too many hair masks but I've heard about some great ones. Thanks for reading Tanya!!

  3. I totally forgot about deep conditioning my hair this Fall season no wonder my hair has been feeling brittle and dull. I love that Shea Moisture deep conditioner and will be using that tonight! I have been using a 16-18oz water bottles even at home to make sure I drink more hehehe! Great picks and thanks for sharing them!

Happily Ever Johnson:Tastings and Things

The countdown to this wedding is getting real. April is around the corner and the big day will be here soon! I have starting stressing about the small details and hoping we have everything. We got to do the fun stuff recently, food tasting! I know that was the thing we were both looking forward to. We first had our food tasting at the venue. You were able to bring family members to the tasting and you got to experience the full service during the reception and everything on the menu. I liked that everyone was given a paper with a description of all the menu items so you knew what you were eating and take notes about each dish. I found it helpful to have some other people with us so you got an idea of what the majority of guest would like and different opinions about each dish. We narrowed down what dishes we wanted on our menu and they were all so good!

Us after the tasting

My son was super exciting to do the cake tasting with us! He just wanted lemon cake and wanted us to have lemon…

Spring Fashion Trends

For many years I would say that I'm going to NYFW and then forget when it is lol! One day I'm going to make it there lol! Speaking of fashion, today I'm going to share a few Spring Fashion trends that I will most likely be wearing this season. (Images taken from the web)
Vibrant Stripes
I love wearing bright and bold colors when it gets warmer outside. This trend is super fun and such a statement. You can wear this in the office with a bold striped button up or out on the town with a maxi dress. 

One Shoulder
I really think this trend is super cute and flirty. I have seen many versions of the one should trend over the years and this one seems to be my favorite. I would probably wear this with a top or dress. 

Slogan T-Shirts
I know these have been around forever and this trend to me will never go out of style. There are so many slogans out there, it is hard to keep up with all of them. I do have a few myself and I love how you can dress them up or down.

This is anothe…

Happily Ever Johnson: 3 Months To Go!

*Que screaming and running around like a crazy person*  I can't believe we are three months away from the big day!! It seems like yesterday we just got engaged and started making plans and now it is almost here. I'm not freaking out yet (Lies, I am on the inside lol). I just want to make sure we don't forget anything lol. It seems like it is so easy to forget something when just about everything is going on. I'm getting into the swing of things in my new position and most of my focus seems to be there at the moment but I'm making sure to keep up with everything. I recently met with my coordinators (aka My mom,aunts and cousins) to preview the centerpieces. I'm so thankful for them stepping in and helping with the decor and planning. I'll give you guys a sneak peek at the centerpieces but you won't see the full effect of everything until after the big day.

Of course I drew my inspiration from Pinterest. I have spent so many hours on there and found so m…
