Curl Cap Review – Hat for Curly Hair!

Sometimes you just need to slap on a hat, put on some trap music and get ish done! However, thatโ€™s not an easy feat when you have hair like mine thatโ€™s thicker than a porpoise !๐Ÿ˜ฉ


Iโ€™ve been seeing the Curl Cap on social media and wanted to try it! At first, looking at the hat with pretty much the back missing admittedly looked kind of crazy. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Iโ€™m giving you a full review on the Curl Cap and sharing my thoughts!

Would you try a Curl Cap?

Mask Monday with Ole Henriksen

Mask Monday essentials compliments of Ole Henriksen. Iโ€™ve been using their Hygge HydraClay Detox Mask for over a year now and love the results. So, when I learned about the launch of their new Dark Spot Toner, I was anxious to give it a try!

Hyperpigmentation is one of the challenges I face with my skin.  This toner boasts to reduce the look of dark spots, smoothes & brightens skin texture while targeting fine lines and wrinkles in as little as 7 days! After cleansing, I applied the Dark Spot Toner followed by the Hygge HydraClay Detox Mask and let it sit while poppinโ€™ champagne! ๐Ÿฅ‚ for a in home spa treatment.

Babyyyyy I already love the results! Skin has a beautiful glow โœจ, smooth texture without being irritated I have been using it about 3 days now and going to try it the full 7 days to see the full results! Subscribe to my blog for my final review!

Beauty with Ruby Tip:

Use the toner at night to maximize the overnight benefits. Apply sunscreen the next morning (๐Ÿ—ฃYOU NEED TO WEAR SUNSCREEN DAILY!) but especially after using this toner due to the active ingredients.

Do you use a toner as a part of your beauty routine?

Dipped Manicures are better than No Chip!

Real nails! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ For yearssss, I wore full sets. I kind of went backwards in adventurousness because in college I legit only wore clear gel overlay. Like dats it. No bright colors to express my youth ๐Ÿ˜‚. No nothing …unless I was going on vacation then Iโ€™d get a bright color! ๐Ÿ‘™โ €
โ €
Then, I slowly but surely ventured into wearing colored polish but was still only pinks ๐Ÿ’•and pastels. Now look at me, wearing black nails with a glitter โœจ nail to put some stank on it! ๐Ÿ˜‚ โ €
โ €

When no chip manicures came out, I loved the idea of them being better for your nails than acrylics and lasting much longer than a traditional manicure ๐Ÿ’…๐Ÿพ I was hooked!โ €
โ €
Untilllll, I was introduced to dipped manicures by my cousin. Selena! Yโ€™all, Iโ€™m๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ never ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ going ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพback! โ €
โ €

Dipped Manicures:

  • Last 2-3 weeks
  • Application time is about the same amount of โฐ as a no chip
  • No harsh UV โ˜€๏ธlights
  • Super durable ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ like an overlay!
  • No tools โš’ to remove = better for nails
  • When you remove, nails are strong๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ ! โ €
    โ €

Have you tried dipped manicure?
