What I do before, while and after straightening my hair with a flat iron

As you know I have curly hair, but I like to wear it straight. Don’t get me wrong: I LOVE my curls, but wearing it straight is much easier to maintain for me. I’ve never chemically straightened my hair, but I do straighten it with a flat iron every other week. Here’s what I do before and while straightening my hair with a flat iron. Tips, tricks and what to avoid. Hope this is helpful. β€’ Before I start, I try not to crank up the heat all the way. I read somewhere that 410 works for every hair type,...

My new hair products: CLEAR SCALP & HAIRβ„’ Intense Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner

With my freshly cut hair comes a new hair routine! Ever since I cut my hair, I’ve been focusing on taking care of my scalp and hair with good products to make sure my hair stays healthy and full. Did you know that studies have shown that seasonality (so the changing of the seasons) can cause shedding, especially in Fall? Yup! Now that we’re almost transition to Fall, I think it’s good to put an emphasis on scalp care, so my scalp and hair are ready! The skin on your scalp is the same skin that we have on our...

Review: Zakia’s Morocco 100% pure, organic Argan Oil

Thanks everybody for your kind words about my new hairdo! I really appreciate it. For those who haven’t seen any new pictures yet: I cut my hair a couple of days before my birthday on August 9. I wasn’t sure about the whole thing and when I did decide to do it, I was nervous about it. The reason for this is because I hadn’t cut my hair since high school. Yes, I know…crazy! Of course I’ve had trims every year, but this was my first real haircut since I was about 12. My hair was very long, it practically...

Beauty is pain? Painful beauty procedures I regret doing

Beauty is pain, they say. What type of torture have you gone through for the sake of looking pretty? Back in the day, people would wear painful corsets and powder their face with lead. They used makeup made of malachite (a green ore of copper), galena (lead sulfide) and kohl, a paste made of soot, fatty matter and metal (usually lead, antimony, manganese or copper). The lead exposure would eventually lead to irritability, insomnia and mental decrease. Oops! The examples above might seem extreme, but nowadays things aren’t that different. A lot of these things have been replaced by beauty...

I’m back in the US with new hair: short and spicy!

I took a little break from the blog, but I’m back! There has been some changes. I’m a year older now (my birthday was on August 9), I’m back in the US after being in The Netherlands for a couple of months and there’s something else that’s new… I cut my hair! I was tired of having long hair and I wanted something new. No more Pocahontas! Here’s my before picture, in case you’ve forgotten how I looked like. πŸ˜€ Hair before Top: Summum // Jeroen Beekman I’ve had long hair for years (since high school), so this is a...

Tips for Bad Hair Days (courtesy of myself and the Aflac Duck)

This review and giveaway was made possible by iConnect Influencer Management and Aflac. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine. Bad hair days, who doesn’t have them? I’m the kind of person who loves doing my makeup, but when it comes to my hair…I rather skip it! Makeup is much more fun to do than hair, if you ask me. To make things worse: sometimes my hair just does not want to cooperate. Because I still want to look presentable, even on those bad hair days, I have come up with 3...

Ciao Bella! Check out my 2015 Bella Voxbox from Influenster

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. For the last couple of days I’ve been waking up at 6 AM. Six in the morning! Whyyyy would I wake up that early if I don’t have to? I so don’t like it, because it basically means that at the end of the afternoon I’ll be tired again. Ugh. Something I do like? Receiving a box full of goodies! I’m always excited when I get packages in the mail, but I was extra excited about this one, because I hadn’t received anything from Influenster in a while. I was...

7 Reasons to Love Irresistible Me Hair Accessories!

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have noticed that I’ve been having fun with some hair accessories! Yes, I know I’m almost 36 (shhh, don’t tell anyone!), but I do think you’re never too old for hair accessories. Especially cute ones! They are a must-have if you like to do something fun, but you don’t feel like changing your entire hair style or spending a lot of time on a hairdo. This definitely applies to me. I am known for walking around with a full face of makeup, but messy and undone hair, simply because I didn’t feel...

Hi there! Hope you had a great weekend! Have you heard of VOLOOM, a styling tool? Well, neither had I.

Review: Irresistible Me Diamond Flat Iron (+ before & after pics of my sister-in-law!)

I’m back from Hawaii! How do you get your hair so straight? That’s a question that I get A LOT during my trip. I have naturally curly hair, but I mostly wear it straight. It has become my signature hair style. For me, it’s just easier than having to keep my curls look good/frizz-free between washes. The way I get my hair straight is to blow dry it after every wash and then straighten it with a good flat iron. The flat iron I’ve been using lately is the Diamond flat iron by Irresistible Me. You might know Irresistible Me...
