I love talking about beauty. Makeup, skincare, and haircare is some of my favorite things. Note, I am transitioning into being cruelty-free so all beauty products marked with a * means that they test on animals, + means that companies’ cruelty-free status isn’t clear, and all non-tagged items are not tested on animals. Their parent company’s cruelty-free status information is not listed here but easily findable through a Google search if you are curious.
When my conditioner bottles misbehave, I stab them.
Try it! It feels great and it actually gives you more product. Be careful though, stabbing is generally dangerous…
After seeing a Pinterest post on how to stop suction with trash bags and trash cans it sparked an idea. Could this work for other products? Sure, suction isn’t the exact problem I was having but I gave it a shot anyway because I like trying new DIY projects.
Whenever my Organix conditioners (my favorites: Biotin and Collagen, Vanilla Silk, and Keratin Therapy) start to run out of product I’ll take off the cap and tap it into my hand so I can get the product from the side of the bottle. This process generally works but often I hurt my hand because of how hard I have to hit the bottle to get the extra product out.
So, I took a scissor and stabbed the bottle. Just one tiny hole. That’s it! When I tapped the bottle into my hand afterward there was much less pressure in the bottle so I got a ton of product out with a little tap. Problem solved! Now I can save some money and get a lot more uses out of my products by getting all the left over conditioner from the sides of my bottles (without hurting my hands).
I hope you give this a try, let me know if it works out for you.
I notice I did not see your hand go up. That means you’ll probably like this DIY.
For a long time I’ve seen people talk about using a t-shirt to dry their hair. I was curious about the hubbub so I decided to try it out for myself. Whoa! The difference was apparent after my first use. My hair was a lot less frizzy and my natural waves were a little more defined. It was so easy to-do I thought I’d show you as well.
One cotton t-shirt (a long sleeve might be better)
Wet hair (apply styling products before you do this)
It is that simple to reduce frizz! If you want to see how it has helped my hair then just watch my past few videos.
Perfect face makeup? I’m not a fan. There is just something about high coverage makeup that I just don’t like. I only really try to get that more perfect look when I’m going to a formal event. Am I the only one? I just feel weirdly about high coverage.
Here is the makeup look that I’ve been really loving this Spring. It’s very fresh and easy to recreate (even if you don’t have exactly the same products).
