Best Frizz Fighters

I make no apologies for how much I love my hair and that I take pride in maintaining its appearance. I mean, I have bins and bins of products taking over my linen closet. Though frizz is the bane of my hair’s existence. Having coarse, super thick, crazy wavy hair means it sucks up any moisture it can find, so when I wake up and can taste the humidity in the air, it’s game on.

I don’t remember ever having to deal with frizz as a kid, but at some point everything changed, and I spent my 20s experimenting with different cocktails of products. So over the years, I have tried every frizz control product I could get my hands on to combat those awful little hairs from popping up, and I’m sharing my holy grail items below.

Makeup Wars – Favorite Mascaras

I was not blessed with long, luscious lashes, so when it comes to mascara I need all the help I can get. They’re also stick-straight, lucky me, which means I need a mascara that not only lengthens and defines but also holds a curl. That’s a pretty tall task for one product, but I’ve found four go-to’s that are up for the job. If you’re looking for a clump free mascara that you can swipe on and jam, I’ve got you covered.

Deborah Lippmann Leopard Nail Art

In general, I don’t wear prints. I’m basic in that way. Solids, especially black, make up my wardrobe. However, I make an exception for leopard print. It’s essentially a neutral. So, when I spotted these Superga slip-ons, I couldn’t resist. Then, my Deborah Lippmann Painted Desert samples arrived, and I couldn’t help but notice how well Terra Nova and Desert Moon matched my new sneaks. And so today’s Leopard Nail Art design was born.
