HAIR SHOTS C/O | LULULEMON TANK (SOLD- SIMILAR HERE) | BOMBSHELL EXTENSIONS | TAUDREY “DESTINY” NECKLACE | LIPSTICK (ON SALE NOW!) 

I am a total product junkie & absolutely love to try out new products! I was delighted to be able to try out Hair Shots and guys, guess what?! I absolutely LOVED them! So I’m guessing you’re wondering.. “What are hair shots?!” Hair Shots were created by a woman named Amy Lance who was inspired to create something in which would keep hair smelling good & fresh! Hair Shots are perfume fragrances which are heat activated. This means that as you are active, the scent intensifies. Ummm, hello #GENIUS !!! I am always on the look out for products that keep my hair fresh and clean feeling AND smelling delightful. Not only am I very active, but I also live in Houston where it is hot and suuuuper humid. I’ve tested these out for two weeks now because I really wanted to give my honest opinion on them and see how they worked for me and they are now officially on my list of must-haves! 

Hair Shots come in 9 amazing scents. My personal favorites are cotton candy & coconut mango- they smell SO divine! I also love that I can choose a scent to match my mood. If I’m not feeling fruity or sweet, something like Bamboo or Asian Green are a nice change. After getting out of the shower, I spray in my normal leave in conditioners + three sprays of a Hair Shots scent and then let it air dry. I also spray a few times on my dry hair before the gym or going out. I was so impressed with how well these babies work! The scents are so yummy- not overwhelming, but strong enough to give your locks a fresh delightful scent. Hair Shots are now definitely a staple in my beauty cabinet/gym bag and I’m so extremely happy I was able to test it out and share the great news with you! This product is growing popularity fast and has been featured in many of my favorite magazines like: SHAPE, US WEEKLY, & FITNESS ! I highly recommend that you try this product out, so that you can have delicious smelling hair all the time too! Cheers to Head Shots and amazing smelling hair!! Xoxo

Let’s Talk Hair- With NUME

HAIR EXTENSIONS: BOMBSHELL EXTENSIONS | TOOL USED: NUME | TOP | JEANS | WATCH | LIPSTICK (WHIPPED CAVIAR)

One of the questions I get asked most about is how I curl my hair. I am loving the curls I have been getting with my NUME Lustrum Set, so I thought I would share about this awesome tool & how I use it!

1. After getting out of the shower, I usually let my hair air dry.

2. When it’s dry, I brush it out & clip in my extensions.

3. I section my hair (I do about 4 sections) and curl each section.

4. I always wrap my hair around the wand & away from my face, while leaving out about an inch at the end.

5. I also make sure to not curl close to my scalp to avoid super tight curls.

6. After that, I shake out my curls and apply the NUME Argan Oil to achieve shiny, loose curls.

This curling wand is so awesome and I notice that when I use it to curl my hair, my hair keeps the curl so well. This is so helpful because I only wash my hair a couple of times a week and want those gorgeous curls to look great, even on 4 day old hair! I also love the Lustrum Set because of all the different sizes of wands it comes with! The quality of this wand is great and it’s super easy to use. I am very picky when it comes to what tools I use on my hair because I know exactly what I like, but I honestly love this set!
