1. COCONUT OIL.

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

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)

20 Small Tattoos With Big Meanings

It's tough to find perfect tattoos with meaning.

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 you can't go wrong with. Each tattoo has its own unique meaning, but don't blame me if you still have to deal with questions that everyone with a tattoo is tired of hearing!

SEE RELATED: "Please Stop Asking What My Tattoos Mean"

1. A semicolon indicates a pause in a sentence but does not end. Sometimes it seems like you may have stopped, but you choose to continue on.


2. "A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor."


3. Top symbol: unclosed delta symbol which represents open to change. Bottom symbol: strategy.


4. "There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls."


5. Viking symbol meaning "create your own reality."


6. Greek symbol of Inguz: Where there's a will, there's a way.

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 into whatever you do.


11. Malin (Skövde, Sweden) – you have to face setbacks to be able to go forward.

12. Symbol meaning "thief" from "The Hobbit." It was the rune Gandalf etched into Bilbo's door so the dwarves could find his house.


13. “Lux in tenebris" means “light in darkness."

14. Anchor Tattoo: symbolizing strength and stability, something (or someone) who holds you in place, and provides you the strength to hold on no matter how rough things get.

15."Ad Maiora" is translated literally as “Towards greater things." It is a formula of greeting used to wish more success in life, career or love.


16. A glyph means “explore." It was meant as a reminder for me to never stop exploring.

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 and the strength we all have inside of us.

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

10 Problems Girls With THICK Hair Always Get Tangled Up In

"Wow, you have so much hair!"

63
views

When you have thick hair, you're very well aware of all the problems that come with it. For those of you who do not have thick hair, here are just 10 things people with thick hair have to go through.

1. You always feel hot because your hair is just SO thick 

On the plus side, our hair can be used as ear muffs when it's cold. On the down side, summer (and "spring" and "fall" if you live in the south).

2. Shedding 

How'd that hair get there?! No one knows.

3. You go through ponytail holders like nobody's business 

Have you ever broken a ponytail holder the FIRST time you tried to use it? Well, thick-haired people have.

4. Don't even bother brushing 

If you have thick AND curly hair like moi, brushing is NOT an option unless your hair is wet.

5. Speaking of wet hair...

Oh, you want your hair DRY? Good luck with having dry hair after you shower. It'll be a while.

6. Want to dye your hair?

Be prepared to spend all day at the hair salon. You have to go through ROUNDS of bleach before you can even start to color your hair. And also be prepared to shell out at least $100.

7. You have to style you hair in LAYERS 

You'd be better off just putting it in a ponytail and calling it a say. Ain't nobody got time for that!

8. Short hair? Good luck!

Having short thick hair, while taking less time to wash, is even EXTRA thick because the curls have nowhere to go.

9. Long hair? In summer?

If you've ever had long thick hair, you'll know that summertime is the. Absolute. Worst. You're sweating not even five seconds of being outside and the frizz. Oh my goodness, the frizz.

10. Headaches 

With you hair being on top of your head all the time, headaches are a natural occurrence.

On the plus side, my hairdresser always says "wow your hair is so thick!"
