How To Take Care Of Hair Extensions | Luxury For Princess

lfpstoring

I consider myself a hair extension pro — especially clip-ons. I’ve been using these types of extensions for years and have tried a countless amount of brands. I’ve used different lengths, textures and whole lot of different hair shades. Today I know exactly what works for me and what kind of extensions people will love as well.

Whenever I’m asked about my favorite type of hair extensions the answer is simple — Luxury For Princess. They have the best hair extensions available, tons of options and amazing hair quality. Clip-on extensions are an investment and a type of accessory that you need to take care of so that you get your money’s worth. I made a video showing how I take care of my set of Luxuries and make them last a super long time.

Want a set of your own? When you use the code MELISSA5 you save some money on the hair extensions. And when you use the code MELISSA15 you get a discount off their 5-in-1 curling wand.

How To: Sleek Straight Hair

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Dove and Latina Bloggers Connect. However, all opinions expressed are my own.

My hair is my security blanket, it always has been. When my hair looks great, I feel great. When I’m having a bad hair day, the rest of my day is thrown off as well. For this reason I take my hair care routine pretty seriously. I want my hair to look and feel healthy. As a beauty blogger I’m constantly switching things up and trying different trends. In order to make sure my hair can keep up with the changes, I need to treat it extra special.

I remember the days where I didn’t use any products in my hair because I was afraid it would weigh my fine hair down. In return I had to deal with frizzy hair, especially throughout the warmer days. This issue made me feel self-conscious and fed-up with my hair. All I wanted to do was be able to wear my hair straight without worrying about the frizz. And now I can finally do that!

When I find new products that make my hair look amazing, I of course need to immediately share them with all of you. My recent hair obsession has been the new Dove Regenerative Nourishment products. I’ve been using both the Regenerative Nourishment shampoo and conditioner and they’ve been so good to my hair. The shampoo helps repair signs of damage on your hair (which I have a lot of from dying my hair one too many times). It also works to replenish your hair’s nutrients to make your once damaged hair now stronger. Say goodbye to breakage! The conditioner then nourishes your hair by repairing the internal structure. After using this duo you’re left with softer, healthier hair.

The product, which is crucial to achieving the sleek hairstyle below, is the Dove Regenerative Nourishment Serum-in-Oil. A lot of people have been asking me lately how I get my hair so shiny and the secret is in this bottle. With this product Dove brings together the nourishment power of an oil and the restorative qualities of a serum — making this a pretty powerful duo. Check out the pictorial below to see how I use this little guy multiple times when I’m styling my hair.

Here are the super easy steps to getting a sleek, straight hairstyle. Feel free to pin the pictorial and share with friends!

STEP 1: Start by washing your hair with a nourishing shampoo like the Dove Regenerative Nourishment Shampoo & Conditioner.

STEP 2: Grab your favorite hair oil. Mine is the Dove Regenerative Nourishment Serum-in-Oil because it gives me the benefits of a serum and an oil.

STEP 3: Squeeze a dime size or nickel size (depending on how much hair you have) of the oil onto the palm of your hand.

STEP 4: Rub your hands together and start distributing the oil onto your hair. Focus on the ends and apply the rest lightly to the top of your hair.

STEP 5: Start blow-drying your hair like your normally would.

STEP 6: Flat iron any stray hairs that need a little more straightening.

STEP 7: Here’s my little shiny hair trick. I apply a little bit more of that Dove oil & serum — just a little bit.

STEP 8: And you’re done! Enjoy your fabulous sleek, straight hair.

Even though my hair isn’t naturally sleek, straight with the help of Dove hair products I was able to achieve a look that I love and makes me feel confident. I love that Dove is constantly encouraging women to love every single part of themselves including their hair. Check out this inspiring video about women feeling pressured to have a certain hair type and embracing what they love instead.

darkcirclestn

Wether you stayed out too late the night before or don’t ever get enough sleep in general — those pesky dark circles will you away. But, I’ve got an instant solution for you.

I have tried an insane amount of concealers in hopes of finding the perfect one. One that covers up dark circles, doesn’t crease up or ends up feeling too heavy on the skin. To my surprise I found a total of 5 concealers that I’m loving (including a drugstore pick). Check them out in the video below and find out what makes each so special.

PS. I heard your requests and, yes, I will be doing a makeup tutorial on the look from this video 😉

The Best Smelling Body Washes

This post was created in connection with my appointment as an Influencer for Caress. Visit CaressForever.com.

Any brand or product that celebrates a woman’s beauty instantly wins me over. That’s one of the reasons I love Caress Body Wash so much, especially their Forever Collection.

The Forever Collection has Fragrance Touch Technology and Caress has recently expanded the collection with Mystique & Enchant Forever scents, which I’m so excited about! Caress developed the first body wash in the world  with this breakthrough technology. The way Fragrance Touch Technology works is that for up to 12 hours after shower with this body wash, you’re able to touch your skin and a burst of fragrance is released.

I love that the Caress Forever Collection body washes have this technology. Their body washes blend alluring ingredients to deliver unforgettable, long lasting fragrance. The main reason I purchase a specific body wash fragrance is so that I can smell it on my skin. The fact that I’m able to activate the scent by a simple touch is mind blowing.

From the Forever Collection I currently have the scents — Love Forever, Adore Forever, Mystique Forever and my absolute favorite Enchant Forever. Enchant Forever is one of those scents I could never get tired of with honeysuckle and satinwood fragrances. This body wash in particular has a pretty blue color to it. Caress Enchant Forever feels luxurious on my skin. After I shower with it I’m left feeling super moisturized and soft. I can’t stop touching my skin and activating the scent with fragrance touch technology all day long.

Actress Kat Graham has teamed up with Caress to show how amazing the fragrance touch technology works. Check out her video to see how she shows off her queen-like confidence with Caress at CaressForever.com. Want the chance to possibly get featured on the Caress website too? Create your own post on Instagram or Twitter, then tag @Caress and use the hashtag #ForeverQueen to show off your fragrance-activating move that gives you confidence!
