5 ways Curly Heads Can stay frizz-free this summer

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)

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
