Although Spring isn’t officially over yet, and Lincoln weather has been akin to monsoon season the past few days, my mind is on sunshine. I’ve always had a special place in my soul for summer. Ice cream and pools, the smell of charcoal and sunscreen, I just can’t get enough. So it is no surprise that I have already begun my search of warm weather beauty staples.
Planning for this season is already proving to be easier than anticipated. While my decision to grow out my naturally curly hair means I could probably get away with wash & go’s, I’m still beholden to my straight hair. But with curly roots showing their wild ways, I wasn’t sure I could get away with my sleek office hair bun with the increased heat & humidity.
Enter Nubian Heritage Indian Hemp & Tamanu Grow & Strengthen Edge Taming Taffy. Not only is it chock full of nourishing & strengthening ingredients for my hair, this stuff also STAYS PUT! I don’t remember the last time I made it a whole day without fly always or my edges rebelling with any other edge tamer. Add in the fact that all the ingredients are natural and you have one happy Ashley.
Another product sure to keep me smiling for the new few months is Revlon’s new(ish) Colorburst Laquer Balm. If I didn’t put it on myself, I’d think I was wearing lipstick. Thankfully this balm is super light, goes on smooth like a lipstick, yet lasts for hours like a lip stain. Finally the trifecta I’ve been looking for.
I can’t decide if the best part about these two products are the products themselves, the fact that they are so affordable, or that I can buy them both at CVS and not have to wait days for a product I ordered online.
I’m excited to continue searching for more go to products as the weather keeps getting better, as well as testing these products out more as the heat rises.
