Healthy Hair Journey

Hello, guys! well today I want to talk a little about HAIR! everybody wants healthy, shiny hair RIGHT? I have always been blessed with healthy hair and in my younger years failed to even attempt to APPRECIATE or take care of it. I hadn’t even realized up until recently that my hair was screaming for attention after a massive amount of neglect and over dying and processing it.

I have noticed a big difference in my hair since doing these things and hope they will help you too.

1.Wash your hair less (One of the hardest for me) your natural oils protect your hair. Over washing your hair strips your hair from those natural oils. I go 2 to three days if possible before I wash my hair. Also NO hot water on your hair, this also damages hair. Use cool or warm water to wash. Before putting shampoo and conditioner be sure to ring out excess water before applying.

2. No HARSH towel drying, softly use your towel to absorb the moisture from your hair.

3.Using too many heat tools (curling, crimping, drying) I limit my hot rollers to 2 times a week and YOU MUST use a heat protectant. Also I recommend letting your hair AIR DRY, and no combing your hair when it’s wet. Brushing youf hair when its wet creates more BREAKAGE. If you must comb hair then use a big tooth comb which will help with less breakage.

4. Over DYING and processing your hair. Not saying you can’t dye your hair just be mindful to not over process.

5. Vitamin E, Prenatel vitamins and Biotin are for aiding and promote healthy skin, hair and nails.

6. Last but not least be sure to get a trim and cut off the dead ends. I know this is also very hard especially if you are trying to grow out your hair, but it is necessary if you want to prevent further breakage. A good trim can do wonders for the look and appearance of your hair.

Products I LOVE and recommend, these products BY FAR have helped my hair on its recovery more then any other product I have tried. This product is new and the sister product of It’s a 10. I have tried both and honestly can say I don’t prefer it’s a 10 over this one. This is also more affordable compared to it’s a 10. Each bottle retails at $13.99 a piece

Ice Cream Parlor top & Look alike Jessica Simpson Dany platforms

1.Red flowy shorts (click on pic for similar look)

1.Topshop Cropped top (similar here look)

These shoes are called Lucy and I found them on ebay,  I have been wanting some t-strap sandals like these ever since I fell in love with Jessica Simpsons Dany platform. The Dany platform was sold out forever, and still hard if not impossible to find in the black and brown. When I came across these on ebay I was super psyched!

The difference in the shoes are that the Dany platform is real leather and  the LUCY is pu leather, neither of the Dany or ebay version are actually real wood. I don’t mind that they aren’t real leather or real wood, the price is the only thing I don’t love. They are around 45 plus tax (they ship from the uk, downside :/) so you end up paying 60 ish for these when the real ones run around 100.00. The UPSIDE is the body of the Lucy shoe is in my opinion is better and more of what I like in the shape, and they also offer more colors then Jessica simpson collection.

All in all I give the Lucy platforms a thumbs up:)

I waited for a good while, hoping somebody would do a post on these high waisted kristen jeans from Topshop. I love Topshop however since we don’t have them here in the US, it is a lengthy process to wait for your package and if you don’t like it or it doesn’t fit, you have to start all over (URGG:/). So long story short, I got these in a size 26 waist, length 30 inch, I normally wear a 27 inch but they don’t carry that size? (strange). I love the jeans and glad I purchased them, there isn’t a lot of stretch in these jeans but they are made well and a good quality that will last for a long time.

This look is pretty basic, I could wear denim all day long! It’s pretty basic look that you can easily dress down with flats if you don’t like heels, however if you follow my blog you probably know I don’t really wear flats unless they are tennis shoes:) Hope you enjoy this look.

Until next time xoxo Sophia

Creating Summer Layers

Creating layers is a easy way to break up proportions, its a trick used to create a smooth silhouette and also can add movement and shape to any look. If your adding layers in the summer this can be tricky, so opt for lighter and airy type fabrics. Also choose pieces that can be removed easily without ruining the look, such as a light weight jacket or sweater. You can also wear a dress with a blouse over it, that you can easily remove.
