Remington Pearl Ceramic Ultimate Flat Iron (2 inches)
I first encountered this flat iron when I saw my college junior year roommate using it nearly every morning. I borrowed it a few times and really liked the results so I requested the pearl ceramic version for a Christmas gift. First of all, I have naturally wavy and frizzy hair that’s fairly hard to straighten. That’s why I chose a 2-inch flat iron instead of an 1-inch one that most people have. Secondly, I like the pearl infused ceramic plates on this flat iron because ceramic improves heat distribution and allows hair to glide through with almost no snagging. One problem I’ve encountered with previous straighteners is frizz. With this straightener, as long as the weather isn’t super humid, the frizz is under control for most of the day. Additionally, I really like how you can control the temperature on this straightener (I use the lowest one, 300 degrees F). This flat iron also heats up really fast. I usually turn it on, set the temperature, and by the time I finish applying heat protectant, it’s already heated up (indicated by the beep sound). For maneuverability, this straightener contains a long swivel cord. Lastly, there’s a lock switch that allows you to press the plates against each other and roll up the cords when you are traveling or not using the flat iron. Overall, I’m very happy with this product and I strongly recommend it to those of you looking for a new flat iron.
You can purchase this flat iron on Amazon.

Anonymous asked: does washing your hair with shower gel make it dry? iv been washing it with shower gel for about 4 years now, i live with only guys and so i cant really buy shampoo or hair products. what could i do?
I would recommend not washing your hair every day, especially since shower gels are quite drying. There are products out there that are also multitasking and serve as a body wash/shampoo/conditioner at the same time (I know philosophy makes these). If getting a very basic and generic shampoo w/ conditioner included or a generic conditioner is not possible, then you can also use home ingredients to make a hair mask! You can separate out an egg white and spread the mixture in your hair, let it harden, and then rinse it out with lukewarm water. You can also use honey and banana, avocado, coconut oil, or olive oil as a hair mask and them rinse it out and wash as usual. Overall, if you eat a balanced diet and try to wash your hair every other day or every 2 days, your hair should be fine. However, if you’d like to add more moisture to your hair after washing it, you can take a small amount of olive or coconut oil and run that through your hair. If your hair is really fine, then that may make your hair a bit oily though. I hope this helps, but let me know if you have more questions!
Hi guys! Today I’ll be talking about my hair care routine. Managing frizzy and naturally wavy hair isn’t easy. When I was young, I wish I had the typical stick straight hair that most other Asian girls have. But in the past few years, I learned to love and care for my naturally wavy hair. The hair products that I use most often are displayed in the picture below.
Garnier Fructis Leave-In Conditioning Cream: I apply this product in the morning when my hair is frizzy and needs some help staying in place. After I straighten my hair with my Remington 2-inch hair straightener, I apply the leave-in conditioner to the ends of my hair.
Garnier Curl Shaping Spray Gel: I haven’t gotten the chance to use this product very much. So far, I don’t like it as much as I thought I would. It works better with semi-wet hair than dry hair. Basically, you spray the gel and twist your hair into curls. The gel is very sticky and gives the hair a hard texture if the product is not very evenly distributed.
Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum: This is my favorite hair product of all time. I prefer to wash my hair at night and use this product when my hair is damp. After I dry my hair with a towel, I apply a pump of the serum to the ends of the my hair and scrunch my hair to create more volume. When I wake up the next morning, the ends of my hair look hydrated and the soft curls stay all day long. This product also helps to dry your hair faster so you can apply this product before blow drying.
Aussie 3-Minute Deep Conditioner: Christine suggested me to try this product after I told her how frizzy my hair becomes. I use this product once a week. After shampoo and rinse, apply this conditioner and use a shower cap to facilitate the effect of this conditioner. After 3-5 minutes, rinse your hair twice (once with warm water and once with cold water). This conditioner has a strong pina colada smell so be aware of this fact if you are allergic to fragrance.
TRESemme Heat Tamer Spray: Before applying heat, it’s always important to use a heat protectant. I use this spray before I blow dry or straighten my hair.
L’Oreal Hair Expertise EverSleek Shampoo & Conditioner: Overall, I like this shampoo-conditioner combo. But sometimes the shampoo is a bit drying, especially in the winter. I chose this line for the frizz-control and the lack of sulfate and silicone.
