1. COCONUT OIL.

Giphy

This is my go-to every time I have to wash my hair. It works like magic. All you have to do is heat up some oil and massage into your hair. Leave it in for at least an hour and wash like normal. This is perfect for adding some much needed moisture into this hot summer heat.

2. Stop touching your hair

Giphy

I am guilty of this so much. I'm always playing with my hair because how can you not. It's super easy to twirl it subconsciously. Unfortunately, that's just drying your hair out and causing more frizz to happen. It's ruining those luscious locks of hair and the bounce your curls once had. It's not helping anyone especially yourself

3. Invest in frizz free hair products

Giphy

Curly hair products are expensive. Why that is, I have no idea but sometimes that investment goes a long way. Products such as It's 10 really do help keep the frizz away. Sulfate-free products are the most important especially in the summer. The usual chemicals found in other shampoos tend to dry out curly hair. Try OGX Quenching Coconut Curls Shampoo and Conditioner followed by leave-in conditioner of your choice. What helps the most to fight the frizz is by applying the leave-in in really wet hair so it is able to hold on more and work better.

4. Pineapple it

Giphy

No not the fruit. This technique helps keep your curls smooth when you sleep at night. In order to do this you have to create a loose ponytail on the top of your head but DO NOT MAKE IT TIGHT. The whole point is to have no tension so you don't wake up with a dent in your hair in the morning. This method has proven to work in the past and is a great addition to your nighttime routine.

5. Condition daily

Giphy

Washing curly hair is a pain but the end result is so worth it. By conditioning daily you're keeping your hair more hydrated which causes less frizz. It cuts down your washing time by half and you don't have to worry about your curls falling flat because you're going to be providing so much moisture to them. Twice a week use conditioner instead of shampoo.

6. DIY hair masks

Giphy

Hair masks are the way to go this summer. They are super easy to make and work wonders. For frizz free hair try a hydrating mask once a week. Try avocado, coconut milk, and olive oil. Puree the three and massage into your scalp. Wait 15 minutes and rinse the mask out followed by shampoo and conditioner (which should be sulfate-free)

You probably want something permanent on your body to mean something deeply, but how do you choose a tattoo that will still be significant in 5, 10, 15, or 50 years? Over time, tattoos have lost much of their stigma and many people consider them a form of art, but it's still possible to get a tattoo you regret. So here are 20 tattoos where you can't go wrong. Here are 20 small tattoos with big meanings. (But don't blame me if you still have to deal with questions that everyone with a tattoo is tired of hearing!).

7. Psalm 18:33 "He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights."



8. 'Ohm' tattoo that represents 4 different states of consciousness and a world of illusion: waking (jagrat), dreaming (swapna), deep sleep (sushupti), transcendental state (turiya) and world of illusion (maya)



9. Alchemy: symbolizes copper, means love, balance, feminine beauty and artistic creativity.



10. The Greek word “Meraki” means to do something with soul, passion, love and creativity or to put yourself in to whatever you do.

17. "Aut inveniam viam aut faciam," meaning roughly, "Either I shall find a way, or I will make one."



18. Lotus Flower. It grows in muddy water, and it is this environment that gives forth the flower’s first and most literal meaning: rising and blooming above the murk to achieve enlightenment.

19. The zen (or ensō) circle to me represents enlightenment, the universe & the strength we all have inside of us.

20. Two meanings. The moon affirms life. It looks as if it is constantly changing. Can reminds us of the inconsistency of life. It is also symbolizes the continuous circular nature of time and even karma.

If you're like me, you love changing your hair on a monthly basis. I love wearing wigs and box braids. I love cutting and dying my hair as well.

It's a way of expressing one's self and provides creativity in a fun way. When changing your hair often is a way of expressing yourself, it can be pretty difficult when others judge you for it, especially if it's your significant other.

Here are some things that have been said to me that you shouldn't say to your girlfriend or loved one if she decides to cut her hair.

1. "I liked it better when it was longer."

Giphy

No. Just, no. There is no way to magically grow it back in one second so don't try to make her regret it.

2. "You kind of look like a guy."

Giphy

REALLY? If your girlfriend identifies as a girl, chances are she wouldn't like being called a boy. Don't do this, please.

3. "Why don't you wear a wig or extensions?"

Asia Richardson

I love wearing wigs but if you tell me to cover up a haircut that I paid for because you don't like it, then I probably will have to go back to being single.

4. "How long do you think it'll take to grow back?"

Giphy

Probably longer than you're relationship will last if you keep asking dumb questions.

5. "Don't cut it again."

Giphy

Having a girlfriend doesn't mean having a piece of property so don't even attempt to tell her what to do. It's the same with loved ones as well.

6. "You must be insecure with yourself."

Asia Richardson

This hurts coming from anyone. Contrary to popular belief, you don't have to be in a bad place in your life to want to randomly cut your hair down short.

7. "You look gay."

Giphy

It's 2018 people. Girls can have short hair, guys can have long hair, and "gay" IS NOT an insult.

8. "I don't like short hair on a girl."

Giphy

Everyone is allowed to have a preference but if you've already made her your girlfriend and you care more about her hair than her, then you shouldn't be dating her.

9. "If you don't stay consistent, people will think you don't know yourself."

Asia Richardson

All in all, it IS just hair. It will grow back. Why can't I change my hair often and also know exactly who I am?
