9 HAIR Crimes : R U Guilty?

9 Hair Crimes: Are you GUILTY?
Written By: Lindsay the Glamorous
Great hair is not that hard to come by. You can start by visiting your stylist for regular upkeep, but here are some mistakes we all probably make that we can change to benefit our hair inbetween salon visits.
1. SHAMPOOING DAILY
Everyone's hair look best when the natural oils from the scalp are allowed to reach the ends. Shampooing every other day or even every third day is healthier for your hair. If you need to refresh during those days, spray water on your roots and restyle with a blow dryer.
2. THE PONY TAIL
Always fastening your ponytail in the same spot is literally torture for your hair. The strands tend to get weak and broken after the constant pressure to hold it all up because of the bands. If you have to wear your hair up, be sure it is DRY, a pony tail on soaking wet hair is a huge NO NO, your hair is even weaker and you WILL have breakage. Move it up half an inch one day then down the next. I recommend using seamless rubberbands like Goody Ouchless, those will further minimize damage.
3. WET HAIR BRUSH
Brushing wet hair from the roots to the ends is no fun for your hair but if you must, use a comb. A comb is a lot more gentler then a brush but tugging it from the scalp to the tips can cause breakage. My alternative is to use a leave in conditioner, or a detangler when hair is wet then take your hair is sections and comb the ends working your way up in sections. I love to use It's a 10 leave in condtioner.
4. BRUSH STROKED
Brushing your hair over and over again for shine can lead to breakage as well, it's unnessary friction.
All you need is a few strokes to style your hair to get the natural oils from the roots to the ends. Be sure to change your brush on a regular basis. If you use a brush with plastic teeth and the little protective balls fall off, get a new brush, you are chopping your hair while brushing if you continue to use that. You can find many great affordable brushes at any local dollar general or dollar tree.
5. HOT WET HAIR
Blow drying your hair when it is dripping yet, yet again will damage and break your hair. Not only does it cause a ton of heat damage it will be difficult to style your hair. Before applying heat, wrap your hair in a towel for 5 minutes then air dry for another 5. Always apply a heat spray. I like to use Tresemme Heat Spray. A blow dryer should be used on DAMP (towel and air drying) hair for 20 minutes or less.
6. DRY SCALP
To grow healthy hair your scalp needs norishment! Massaging your head with your fingertips will stimulate blood flow giving norishment to your scalp. You can do this techinique to yourself or have someone do it for you, very relaxing!! If you want product care, try a leave in scalp treatment like Murad Professional Scalp Serum.
7. BAD BRUSH
Using the incorrect brush can not only ruin your style, in can get snagged in your hair. Generally the longer your looks the larger in diameter your brush should be. Bigger hair equals bigger brush. To create volume use a round brush, to smooth your hair, a paddle brush is best.
8. NO HAIRSPRAY
You avoid hairspray because of the bad talk it has gotten many and many times over the years. The truth is ALL hair spray contains a polymer that actually locks out humidity which means its not harmful its helpful! Some newer hair sprays are even enriched with vitamins now. It is the polymer, not alcohol, that dries on your hair. The alcohol actually evaporates before it hits your head but always just use just enough to hold your style. Overdoing it will mess up your style and weigh it down.
9. MASKING NOT TREATING
Trying to get rid of flakes with a moisturizer or pomade is only a temporary fix. Dandruff is actually an inflammatory scalp disease unrelated to dryness. The cure? A shampoo with salicylic acid, zinc, selenium sulfide or tar to eliminate flakes. Trying to get rid of overly oily hair by baby powder as another temporary fix to oily hair. Don't wash your hair everyday is very keyto controling the oils, try using a DRY shampoo, that will stop the itch and the oily look. Head and Shoulders works great for both of these problems.
I'll let you go this time with a warning, hahaha.


Have a glamorous day and thanks for stopping by,
Lindsay The Glamorous

Pretty Addictions

I recently came across a new Facebook page called Pretty Addictions. I was attracted to a Marilyn Zombie contest that was being held, I entered and I placed in the competition. Yippee!! I came to find lots of active members and a fast following hitting this mineral makeup line.  I was asked by the owner if I would become a model for this company in a new  feature called Kas’s Addictions. I am honored to be a part of this beautiful talented team. This company has a beautiful assortment of eye shadow colors and is constantly moving forward and developing new products.  www.prettyaddictions.com
My package arrived safe and secure in a bubble wrap envelope.
The package inside so absolutly beautiful!

 I recieved a great variety of shades that Pretty Addictions has to offer. The eye shadows are stunning in person, each one is a wonderful mix. I like the packaging on the indidivual products as well, the clear top sticker making it easy to see what is inside. I also liked that the ingrediants are on the back with shade and contact information.
I swatched and was very impressed with the mix Pretty Addictions has. I love these colors!!


This is my first look using Pretty Addictions.

 I used the eye shadows:
darkness (dark blue, with purple and blue reflects)
obnoxious (teal, with purple and green reflects)
norma jean (light denim blue, with blue reflects)
pina colada (white with silver reflects)
The shadows are smooth and blendable.

 They lasted with the vivid color all day and night.
I love it <3
more looks and tutorials coming soon! <3



Stay Glamorous,

New Stuff at My Beauty Addiction

I've been a My Beauty Addiction chick for a minute now, this is one of my favorite shops and I have to share with you the wonderful new products My Beauty Addiction has to offer. I love this shop a lot because it is always updating and keeping up with the trends besides being exceptional in customer service and affordable with the huge selection of products with a little something for everyone.
www.etsy.com/shop/mybeautyaddiction
www.mybeautyaddiction.com
I LOVE all the new shadows from My Beauty Addiction, it never fails, amazing!
I swatched with NO base, they are so much prettier and some are more brighter like Emberglow, which is my favorite to try first. I already have look ideas spinning around in my head about these shadows, instant inspirations. I love every last one. ♥

Fall Collection
Pantone Inspired 2011
Honeysuckle, Phlox, Emberglow, Cedar, Bamboo,
Nougat, Coffee Liqueur, Teal
If you can't update your wardrobe or wear black and brown most of the fall and winter like I do, then the perfect way to easily update everything is fresh fall colors in your makeup, like these inspired by the Fall 2011 Pantone fashion runway colors. I love these shades and will look lovely with more dark attire these coming months.
Love it! ♥

Prismatic Shimmer Shadows
Aurora, Sphinx, and French Vanilla
These shadows are amazing for just that extra glowly hint to a dramatic look like on the inner corner of your eye or used very lightly for an everyday look. They have a beautiful heavenly glow. They are very shimmery, when using loose shadows a little bit goes a long way and with this I use even less to achieve the desired effect. ♥

 
My Beauty Addiction
Blush! ♥

I love me some fresh blush, thats one thing I can't live without. These are great pigmented blushes. Spiced Apricot, Ginger Spice, and Color Me Mauve

SIGMA BEAUTY "MAKE ME BLUSH " Brushes

I love my Sigma Beauty "Make Me Blush" Professional Brushes!!! These are so amazing and the carry case is so cute and great protection for the brushes. This is a great kit and I highly recommend them!!

The brushes are amazing compared to my usual ELF brushes that I tend to always use. My looks are now more precise and applying makeup is so much easier!! These are high quality brushes and I would compare them to any high end brushes out there. The price on these run at $99 for this kit, but this is worth it!
Sigma MAKE ME BLUSH Professional Brushes  Affliate link :)
http://www.sigmabeauty.com/?Click=95868

This packaging is just too cute!! There are 3 other colors to choose from, blue, purple, and black.

When you're ready to go, you place all your brushes on one side, attach the other end, and it snaps shut on each side. The brushes do move around in the container, so be sure not to have them upside down or it could alter your brushes shapes. I love the faux leather look of the case, the visible stitching, and the cute snaps. It'll definitely glam up your makeup table.


12 beautiful brushes, a makeup lovers dreams.
