After nearly 17 years of detangling my 3A curls, I finally have a list of products that actually work! While different hair types may gravitate towards more hydrating or more holding products, here are a few products that I have repurchased multiple times simply because of their dependability and assurance that I will get glossy defined curls with every use!

MY STATS:

Curl type: 3A / 3B
Hair porosity: High
Length: Little below shoulder
Number of times I wash my hair: Twice a week

1. OGX Argan Oil of Morocco Conditioner — $7.99

This product is the OG! Traditionally a conditioner, I prefer to use this as a leave in, and it conditions my curls for days! Not only does this leave your hair feeling hydrated, it is also not too pricey at $7.99 for 13.0 ounces. You can start your hydration routine by buying this product here.

2. Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Hair Masque — $13.99

This is a great masque to use after shampoo and conditioner. I apply a hair mask every time I wash my hair, but if your hair does not need as much moisture, you can even use it every two weeks or once a month. This makes your hair super soft and leaves it amazingly nourished. You can purchase this softening masque here.

3. Miss Jessie's Pillow Soft Curls — $22

I'm kind of afraid of putting this product on here, because I know that once you try it out, you'll never go back. Guess I'm going to have to get used to this being out of stock... This is the MOST EPIC styler there is out there and has helped me achieve Instagram level curls in terms of shine and hold. People also constantly come up to me and tell me how much my hair smells like deep sleep, and I am here for it!

You can find this product here, but do me a favor and not order too much of it cause this girl needs her curls to pop too, okay?

4. Moroccanoil Treatment — $34

If your hair is really craving that extra moisture and protection from heat, you can use this product as a styler or a generic hair oil for blowdrying etc. I use this product to tame flyaways and add luminosity to my curls! You can purchase this oil here.

5. Shea Moisture Mongongo And Hemp Seed Oils High Porosity Moisture — Seal Co-Wash — $11.89

If you have high porosity hair like me, this product is a life saver! I use it to refresh my curls about three to four days into my wash week. This product does not completely strip your hair of oils, but takes away dirt and adds shine back into your hair. If you're looking for a co-wash, you can get yours here.

6. Shea Moisture Mongongo and Hemp Seed Oils High Porosity Moisture-Seal Styling Gel — $11.99

My favorite gel ever! Another product from Shea Moisture's High Porosity range, this gel goes hand in hand with the cowash above. Not crunchy or sticky, this gel had the best hold and definition without any flaking! This gel can be found here.

7. Garnier Fructis Smoothing Treat 1 Minute Avocado Mask — $4

If you're not about to spend $30 on a hair mask, this is a curl-friendly option you can find at your local Walmart or Target for only $4! These masks are extremely softening and nourishing on the hair, even if you only leave it on for a minute. Now, even your hair can join in on the avocado trend. Purchase this mask here.

8. Carol's Daughter Almond Milk Sulfate Free Shampoo — $10

Have you been straightener-happy the past few months (or years)? If you have extremely heat damaged hair or have had many treatments in the past, this shampoo is for you. Tender and gentle on near fried hair, it helps restore your hair to its original happy, curly state. Best part? It's only $10, and can be found here.

9. Briogeo Rosarco Milk Leave In Conditioning Spray — $20

Is your hair looking frizzy and dry but you have five minutes to get out the door? This spray has your back. Just lightly mist it all over the frizzy sections and gently run the product through your hair with your fingers. Voila! Back to perfect curls. You can buy this product here.

How Happiness In A Relationship Is So Important

What is the happiness and love that we as individuals deserve when it comes to our relationship?

545

It's different for each of us. Some prefer being showered in gifts, being showed off on social media, bragged about to family and friends. But, what is the one thing that all of those have in common?

That would be the unmistakable amount of love your significant other has for you, that they will do anything to show you that they love you unconditionally. We all show our love for one another in various ways. I for one love being shown the love someone else has for me in small things they do.

It could be a simple 'good morning love' text message or even just a hug out of the blue. Knowing that someone cares so deeply about you is one of life's greatest gifts. Knowing that another human being loves you and wants to be with you, it makes us drunk off of love and our heads float up to the stars.

However, when we don't feel that love, that connection, that reassurance from our significant other that they love and care for us back, it can be an extremely overwhelming and a lonely feeling.

We start looking for those feelings and connections elsewhere. In our friends for reassurance if we look good or blowing up their phones for attention.

We start caring about if other people find us attractive or not, we relish in compliments that other people give us. We start looking for that happiness elsewhere. It's not because you stop loving your significant other or stop caring about them, but we as humans need to feel important and like we are needed by another person.

When you stop letting your significant other know how much you care about them or showcasing your love for them, even if it's a simple gesture like holding their hand or holding the door open for them, they will begin to look elsewhere.

Now I am in no way saying that they will cheat on you, but your relationship and their attitude and feelings towards you will never be the same until you start showing them how much they mean to you just as much as they do for you. I don't condone cheaters or staying in a relationship that you are not happy in.

Yes, some relationships go through hard times like distance or a traumatic event. However, the way I see it is if you entered into the relationship, to begin with, you obviously cared about that person a lot and if they show you that they care and love you for the person you are and your past then they deserve the same in return from you.

Relationships are not always easy, they take time, determination, communication, compromise, and love to stay afloat. If one of you isn't willing to give your all and put forth the effort needed then it will never work. A relationship can't be successful if it is only one-sided.

Despite peoples life's being busy on a day to day basis, you need to always find time for your significant other. Because at the end of the day when things hit the fan, your significant other should be the one that will be there no matter what and always be by your side.

All in all, you need to treat each other the way in which you would want to be treated in a relationship and treat them the way they should be treated despite whatever chaos is going on in the world about you. Love is the conquer of all and should never be thrown around or not taken seriously.

Loving someone else is a gift we are given by God and never taken lightly.

9 Extremely Underrated Netflix Shows And Movies That Will Keep You Up Until 3:00 AM This Summer

This is NOT a generic list recommending "Riverdale" or "Grey's Anatomy".

Summer without Netflix is like winter without snow. This listicle contains some of the hidden gems of Netflix many have never heard of. Some of these shows/movies are often overlooked, but once you click on it, your life will forever be changed (at least for the month you watch it). Enjoy watching these when you get bored of the mainstream shows/movies.

1. "The Fosters"

https://media.giphy.com/media/mXrCbE8PQxamlLRvWP/giphy.gif

The Fosters is an excellent fast paced teen/family drama. The show revolves around a non-traditional family of two moms, a biological son, adopted twins and two foster kids; the characters seem to be on a rollercoaster of ups and downs. Character development and dialogue is on point, and the plot is well thought out. My all-time favorite show!

2. "Bates Motel"

https://media.giphy.com/media/GLpAmxAsC0AW4/giphy.gif

A woman and her son move into a foreclosed motel for a fresh start after her husband was murdered. Once they move into the motel, an unfortunate occurrence changes their lives forever. Can they get away with murder? Even though I started watching this show today, I am absolutely intrigued. From the very first scene, the show has kept me on the edge of my seat.

3. "Friend Request"

https://media.giphy.com/media/LdnljOZPgqyXu/giphy.gif

Laura, a popular and friendly girl in college, gets a friend request from a weird girl she met recently named Marina; Marina has no followers on Facebook, and her posts are odd. Maria becomes obsessed with Laura, leading to a fallout, and Marina commits suicide the same weekend.

Once students return to school, their professor informs them of Marina's death. Later that day, a video of Marina's suicide was uploaded on Laura's Facebook. Watch the movie to find out how Laura starts off with 800 followers on Facebook and ends up with zero, just like Marina.

4. "Quicksand"

https://www.instagram.com/p/ByBPxlsiYLF/

Whenever a friend asks for a Netflix recommendation, I always say "Quicksand" very enthusiastically, but I also warn them that this is a dark series with mature subjects. This series is originally Swedish, but the version on Netflix is dubbed in English. The series starts with Maria being arrested for first-degree murder; the events leading up to the shooting are revealed through suspenseful flashbacks.

It is a quick watch with only six fast paced episodes, and the ending will not disappoint you. Just a heads up that this series has nothing to do with quicksand; it is just a metaphor for how Maria got herself into situations which were hard for her to get out of.

5. "Love, Rosie"

https://media.giphy.com/media/Y28TYYLIaRiTK/giphy.gif

Best friends Rosie and Alex have grown up together, but the challenges they encounter distance them. Will they be able to make it back to each other before it is too late? You will not regret watching this pleasant yet slightly cheesy romantic comedy.

6. "American Vandal"

https://media.giphy.com/media/l4EoZ6JZ5uB4IT5FS/giphy.gif

27 faculty cars are vandalized the day of a staff meeting, and class clown Dylan Maxwell is accused and expelled for the crime. Peter and Sam investigate to fill in the holes of the story. Was Dylan really behind the crime? Was the eye-witness lying?

American Vandal is a mockumentary, more specifically a parody of the true crime show Serial. Even though it is a parody, every watcher wants to find out what really happened the day of the staff meeting.

7. "Criminal Minds"

https://media.giphy.com/media/Sn6CZ79Tz53RS/giphy.gif

A group of highly qualified FBI agents in Quantico investigate crimes all over the United States. From serial killers to homicides, the agents dig deep to get to the bottom of these perplexing cases.

8. "Atypical"

https://media.giphy.com/media/l1J9CiCufdrL0JRlu/giphy.gif

Sam, a high schooler on the autism spectrum, goes on a journey of love and self-discovery. With comedy, drama and romance everyone will find something they love about this show.

9. "Young and Hungry"

https://media.giphy.com/media/AEAiyAbh9LRBJofndV/giphy.gif

Young and Hungry revolves around the on-again-off-again relationship between Silicon Valley tech entrepreneur Josh and his chef Gaby. This hilarous sitcom is drama filled and will not fail to make you laugh.
