Caring For Curly Hair, Tips and Tricks To Help Your Curl Look It’s Best!
(above photo courtesy of Liz Rowley Photography)

Curly hair can be hard.  It is so pretty when it is healthy, well cared for and cut right.  When it isn’t, it is a mess and can really make you hate it!  I grew up with curly hair, and it was a disaster.  I knew nothing about taking care of it, and had bad hair cut after bad hair cut.  It wasn’t until I graduated from high school and had someone suggest a diffuser that I tried wearing it curly and I loved it! I didn’t realize how curly it really was because I had been abusing it with blow drying, brushing, curling irons and terrible haircuts.  I still can’t believe that not one of those hair dressers thought to try to bring out the curl at some point!

Fast forward a long time now, and I have finally figured out some key points to take care of my specific type of curl.  And then God blessed me with this beautiful little girl.  And guess what? She has curly hair!  But, her curls are totally different then mine,so then the guessing game began again to figure out what would work for her hair. She loves it long, and it is a huge learning curve. When we start to cut corners on how it is being cared for,it starts to look unhealthy and frizzy (like the photo above).

While curly hair is so different and varies person to person, here are some hair tips that are universal for ALL curly hair types!

1. Never ever use a brush.  Don’t do it. No matter how much you are tempted.  It breaks your hair and is awful to it.  To get tangles out of your hair, take a wide tooth comb or a hair pick in the shower with you and comb it AFTER you add conditioner, but before you rinse it out. This works like a dream. Even for my daughter loves to wear her hair long and it tangles just looking at it wrong! Even more important, you never, ever, ever brush or comb hair when it is dry.  This makes it a frizzy nightmare.  I wish I had learned this sooner.

2. Blow dry with a diffuser.  This is simply an attachment that goes on the end of your blow dryer. While air drying is nice and is best for keeping your hair healthy, using a diffuser helps give your curl definition.  Each individual curl sort of has a mind of its own.  Diffusing it helps the curls to sort of “group” together so that you have a more smooth style as opposed to each individual hair going its own way.

3. Don’t rub your head with a towel when your hair is wet. To dry your curly hair you will want to either blot the ends (if you have long hair) with your towel. Or even better, skip the towel for your hair completely and use an old t shirt. Really! It is amazing the difference it will make on your hair!

4. Try not to wash it everyday.  Curly hair is usually more dry then straight hair.  Washing it daily just dries it out. If your curl is like mine, it doesn’t stay curly the next day.  It turns into waves and frizz.  I sometimes just pull it in a ponytail to avoid washing it.  However, just wetting it down while in the shower will work to diffuse and gain the bouncy curl back.

5. Find the products that work for you! Don’t just use exactly what someone on the internet uses because everyone is different and has different needs. The products I use don’t work for my daughter and vice versa.  Playing with different combinations and products designed for curls, you will eventually come up with what works best for you.  To help you, go to this website it has a quiz to help you figure out what type of curl you have and offers recommendations for products, cuts and hairdos for your type of curl.

6. Love your hair! Curly hair is so versatile and can do so many different things.  It is unique and beautiful if you wear it right.  Stop straightening,and spending so much time trying to make it like everyone else’s and just love your hair for what it is!

replace a worn out trampoline safety pad with pool noodles ~ Easy DIY, #diy, #trampoline, #poolnoodles, #homeimprovement

Here is a quick and easy safety tip that can be done on a budget…. Replace A Worn Out Trampoline Safety Pad With Pool Noodles .  Plus it looks really cool, I love how the bright colors POP and make the trampoli look bright and cheerful.

We have had a trampoline for a few years now and I think we take pretty good care of it.  We take it down for the winter, and try to avoid the kids “abusing” it.  Unfortunately, I can’t say the same thing for the weather!  All it took was a few bad wind storms last year and the poor net and safety pad were trash!  I am sure I am not the only one who got pinched by a trampoline spring or two as a kid. It doesn’t feel good!  I was hoping to avoid that with my kids. Since I am thrifty, I didn’t want to spend a lot on a replacement.  These pool noodles were from the dollar store.  I bought 10 but only ended up needing 9.  Can’t beat $9!  Not to mention, I think it looks fun and brightens up the back yard!

You will need:

Pool noodles

box cutter

A tool to remove the springs (we got one with our trampoline that we saved. but I found a replacement here for super inexpensive if you need one!)

Begin by measuring your spring and deciding what length you would like your sections to be.  Then measure and cut your pool noodles into as many sections as it will provide.  You will probably end up with little pieces off the ends, save them, they will work for summertime crafts for the kids!

Once you have them all cut, it is time to put them over the springs. Using your nifty tool, remove one spring at a time, sliding the pool noodle onto the spring before replacing it.

This isn’t hard, just monotonous.  Thankfully I had my husband do it for me and it took him just a few minutes.

There you have it!  A bright, cheerful trampoline makeover that will be fun all summer long!

graduation pops It is that time of year again… Graduation time!  Lots of parties and memories to be made!  If you are looking for a festive fun little treat to bring the party, take a peek at these Graduation Hat Pops. They are quick and easy and lets face it CUTE as can be.  Plus you can make them in lots of colors to make them fit your school colors.

graduation pops

To make these you will need:

  • Mini M&Ms
  • Mini Reeses (come in a bag in the candy bar section of the store)
  • Mini Hershey’s plain chocolate bars (came in an 8 pack in the candy section)
  • Air Head Extremes
  • Sucker sticks

graduation pops2

Start by  unwrapping you mini chocolate bars and cutting them into 2 squares.  You will have one skinny piece left over save that to melt for putting them together.  You do not need them all so if you need a chocolate fix go ahead and eat one :)

1

 Take the skinny piece of chocolate left over and melt it so you can use it as “glue” to put your caps together.  I put mine in a glass bowl for 3o seconds, they do not look melted but once you touch it, it is soft and melted.  Gently twist the sticking into the wide end of the reeses mini.  Then dip the skinny end in chocolate and “glue” it to the bottom of the square piece of chocolate.  You will want to make sure you stick it to the side with words, so the smooth side will be the top of your cap.

graduation pops

If you are in a hurry put them in the freezer to harden the chocolate, I just let them set a few hours then came back to finish after the chocolate had set.

graduation pops1

Use scissors to cut the air heads into thin sections, attach them with melted chocolate to the top of the cap.  Top it off with a mini M&M.  I made a stand to hold mine out of scrapbook paper and a styrofoam block.
