Hair of the Day (HOTD)

Happy Monday Hair Friends. Last week/weekend was really busy for me. I traveled back to my hometown with my husband and that always seems to through me off of my hair game. The last two days, over the weekend, I basically kept my hair in a puff style. Additionally, I skipped moisturizing and de-tangling my hair two night in a row.  But overall, it was a really awesome weekend.  If you noticed my last post, it is not full of pictures like it normally is (I actually pulled the one photo I have from another blog post on my blogger).  Not to mention, the photo below was taken with my iPhone (like I use to take all of my photos lol...thank God for upgrades) because I left my Canon at home which was 3 hours away.  Alright, enough of that!!!! Thank you everyone who has been patient with my late posts as well. Check out my last post here.

To achieve this style, I sectioned my 1 day old twist-out hair from ear to ear with my fingers.  Then, I separated the top half into 3 sections. The two sections on the sides of my head, at the top, I twisted with my fingers and pinned it toward the top of my head.  As far as the top middle section, I just separated the curls with my fingers and pinned it to one side. Next, I took the remaining hair and finger combed it into a high puff and secured it with an elastic. Then I pinned the the twisted hair down with bobby pins.

Stay tuned for my Wash Day post on Friday.

Fine or Normal Hair . Green Zone 266°F . 338°F (130°C – 170°C)

My Thoughts: 

Packaging - I love the packaging of the FHI Runway. Like all FHI flat irons, it comes in a study magnetic closed box. Inside the box is a carrying case with a heat mat attached to it as well as the flat iron. Now, if you follow me then you know that I had a few concerns about the packaging initially. Check out that post HERE. 

Design - The plates of this flat iron are 100% ceramic unlike other flat irons and their pure white in color. The rest of the flat iron is matte black.

Performance - This flat iron straightens my hair really well. Also, in the past, I had an issue with FHI flat irons not straightening my roots. However, this flat iron straightens all the way to the roots and my strands straighten well.  On the other hand, I don't notice a difference as far as number of passes through my strands. I passed the flat iron through my hair about 3-4 times per strand. Sometimes more depending on how rough my sections were...I know scary right? But, I had no heat damage after wash day! NONE!!!! Also, I had no lingering burned hair smell after wash day as well. Also, the texture of my hair is softer with this flat iron versus the old flat irons I've used and my hair stays straight until I wash it again. 

Things to Consider:
- Plates can break
- Plates may discolor overtime
- Gets Roots extremely straight 
- No burned hair smell
- Sleek design
- Expensive

Keep or Toss: Hiding it on a high shelf the very avoid dropping it and chipping the ceramic plates.

I will post more pictures by Sunday. I'm out of town and this is why the post was late.

Fall Hair Deals At Ulta


Fall is in the air!!!! No more frizzy summer curls. No more sweaty scalp. No more UV damage...unless you live in the south like I do. However, the weather has been pleasant and my curls are actually cooperating with me and staying in place nowadays. *shouts and runs* Yes indeed! Moving right I want to share with you Ulta's Gorgeous Hair Event Sale that is going on RIGHT NOW.

This is not a sponsored post but these deals were too good to pass up or not share with you. Every month or so I receive an Ulta Catalog in the mail. I naturally browse through it as I leave the mailbox in route to my home only to find out that this month they have a major sale going on! AND ITS ALL HAIR RELATED!!!!!! *excited face* Not to mention that majority of the purchases comes with a free gift of some sort (travel sized).

I'm really eyeballing this kit with sample sizes products in it. There is a jar of Shea moisture in there and I love Shea moisture. If you know anything about them then you know about the price tag of their items. So anything that is $8.99 with a jar of Shea Moisture in it practically is worth buying right?

Also, I'm eyeballing these headbands that go on sale soon too. I need some new ones to pretty up my twist outs. Not to mention I want the Alterna Kit that is only $12.99 October 16th.
