Third Thursday Threads: Beauty

Welcome to Third Thursday Threads! I'm so excited to see all of your beauty-related posts, even if it is just talking about your favorite hair product, lipstick color, or nail polish. The link up is below and will be live for a whole week - feel free to link up more than one post if you want! 

I've talked about it briefly before, but I wanted to highlight my hair-washing routine again. Day one you tend to see me with straight hair; it has been washed, conditioned, and blow dried. Sometimes I'll straighten a few pieces, but my hair dries pretty straight. 

Day two is typically worn curly. I use a 3/4" barrel curling iron and it takes me about 15 minutes, which isn't bad considering I get to skip washing my hair on these days. If there are a few greasy spots, I use this and it really helps. Pro tip: try to curl away from your face on both sides - this way, as the curls relax into waves, they look much more natural. 

Day three is my favorite. I brush out all of the curls, throw it into a bun, top it with a little bit of hairspray, and I'm good to go. Lately I've just been grabbing my hair up top, twisting it around in a full circle, and securing it with a single hair elastic. No fancy sock buns, teasing, or anything; I find that I like it to look a little smaller and wimpier now that I have the ombre thing going on.

Day three is always followed by a wash day, and the routine kind of repeats its way from there. Sometimes I skip a step, or repeat straight hair thrown into a ponytail on day two, or make some kind of change, but for the most part, this is my weekly routine.
