CURLY HAIR MASTERPOST

I’m starting this list because as a born and bred Curly Top, I know first hand what a struggle it can be to figure out how to manage/become comfortable with your hair (and do so on a budget). So, please feel free to add, reblog, and share with the curly heads you love (Please don’t delete the source.) 

1- Kiss sulfates goodbye.

I didn’t even know sulfates were a thing until it was brought to my attention. Basically, they are chemicals inside many of the shampoos and hair products that you know and love, ie; Aussie, Suave, Garnier, etc. 

A couple of the biggest problem-causing sulfates are called Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and Sodium Laureth Sulfate, they promote bacteria, reduce proteins, and basically leave your hair covered in a thick layer of wax that sucks all of the natural oils out of your hair. I have been sulfate free for about a year now, and anytime I am forced to use a shampoo with sulfates in it, I can immediately tell the difference in the texture of my hair. As someone who will never spend a dime over the necessary price for beauty products, I’ve compiled a small list of my favorite Sulfate free or low sulfate products that you can find just about anywhere and that will not break the bank:

  • -L’Oreal Paris EverCurl
    This was the first product I tried after making the switch and I love it. It averages about $10 at places like Walmart and it lasts a while. They have a bunch of different options in this line like gel, style milk, etc. It’s cheap and it smells REALLY GOOD!
  • -Shea Moisture
    My favorite is their Coconut Hibiscus line, where they also offer several different types of products. This is probably my favorite out of everything that I’ve used (I’m partial to the Curl and Style Milk and the Hold and Shine Moisture Mist.) They also have a wonderful set of Shampoo and Conditioner, each product also averaging about $10.
  • -Miss Jessie’s
    This one is a little more expensive, each bottle averaging around $22, but it’s definitely worth the money. I love the Pillow Soft Curls product, but right now I’m working my way through a bottle of Multi Cultural Curls and it’s great, though not my favorite. 
  • -Suave Professionals
    Now, I know that I mentioned Suave earlier in the ‘bad list’, however, they have a line of Keratin Infused shampoos that are really low in sulfates AND in price! I usually never buy the shampoos and conditioners from the lines listed above, because it’s a lot of money for a little bit of product, and, let’s face it, in a Curly Haired’s world, there’s no such thing as ‘Family Size’! I can usually hit up Walmart or CVS and get a giant bottle of both this shampoo and conditioner and pay around $9 TOTAL! THAT, my friends, is a deal!

2- Find a good oil.

I’m partial to a salon quality Argan oil, but you can use whatever suits you best depending on your type of curl. You’re probably going to pay a little more for the oil than you would some of your other products, but at a couple of pumps a few times a week, one bottle can last months. 

3- Develop a solid after-shower routine.

This was a hard one for me to figure out, but once I got the hang of it, what used to be an hour long process now only takes about 15 minutes. Each routine will vary from person to person depending on your curls/resources/etc., but here is mine:

  • -First of all, I never wash out all of my conditioner. I don’t walk out of the shower with my hair still sudsy, but I leave just enough in that it makes the next 15-20 minutes a smoother process. 
  • -I start by squeezing all of the excess water out of my hair, (honestly, I’ve learned that my life post-shower is so much easier if I just stand on a towel) making sure that it’s still pretty damp, but not dripping down your shoulders. It’s a fine line. 
  • -Then, I rub a little bit of whatever curl milk I’m planning on using later into my hair (I only just learned this about a month ago and it has SAVED MY LIFE!) this seriously makes the whole brushing your hair out thing eight billion times easier. I know that people say you’re not supposed to brush your hair when it’s wet, but most of those people have board-straight hair and no actual valid opinions. You can brush curly hair when wet, or not at all. There is no in-between. 
  • -Brush it out. I start from the ends and work your way up to avoid as much breakage as possible.
  • -Now I add my oil. A few pumps of Argan into my palm, and I make sure to rub it all over my hands so no matter how I touch my hair, the oil is making contact. Try to avoid the roots, just because you have your own natural oils living there and they get kind of angry (greasy) when you invite other people in. I’ve found the easiest method in doing this is to start at the highest point you plan on putting the oil, and then twisting your hair into sort of a faux-pony tail, it spreads evenly and you don’t have to worry about your hair tangling again.
  • -Flip and scrunch! Put however much curl milk you feel necessary into your palms, flip your hair and get to work! I like to start in my biggest problem area, which is the base of my neck. I put a little more product there than I do anywhere else because it dries out so quickly. Once I’m done, I flip my hair back and scrunch up the curls on the crown of my head a little more, just because I have an issue getting a lot of volume up there.

4- Satin pillow cases are expensive.

It’s true. I know everyone says that the way to keep moisture locked into your hair is to sleep on satin pillow cases, but they’re expensive and my head slides around. No bueno. So, I’ve found a loophole! The messy bun! It’s a life saver, really. I usually wash my hair before bed, so when I’m done putting the products in, I flip my hair over again, collect it all into a bun at the very top of my head and tie it off (I use scrunchies. They don’t leave those annoying hair-tie lines in your hair). Make sure you’re not tying it too tight though, or else it could ruin the curls and you’ll wake up with a frizzy head. This locks in the moisture and protects your curls from those pesky cotton pillow cases.

5- Stop hurting your hair!!

It’s okay. We’ve all done it. Spent hours in the bathroom with a fan and a flat iron trying to look like Megan Fox. (and proceeded to sweat out all of that hard work in a matter of hours). Stop it. Throw out the flat iron, the curling rod you use after the flat iron to get those pretty beach waves, and the hair dryer- YES! I said the hair dryer. Even with a diffuser, you’re causing unnecessary damage to those beautiful curls of yours! Be nice to your hair!

6- Vitamins.

Biotin. I’m not kidding. It keeps your hair long, curly and most of all- Healthy! It’s cheap at any Walmart or drug store and as a bonus, it helps out your hair and skin too!


That’s all I’ve got for now. If I think of some others, I’ll come back and add them, but if you have any opinions or tips that I didn’t mention here, PLEASE add them! Let’s have a discussion, learn and GROW together! (See what I did there?)

KittenEnchantment Review!

This is LONG over due but I just remembered I didn’t do a review on it so here it is! @kittenenchantment

——-

INFO:

I purchased their “Luxury Brown & White Tipped Faux Fur 25″ Tail” on the 30th of January, and it was shipped out on the 2nd of February, didn’t get here til about a week or so later.

I’m not really going to mention shipping here because they use Royal Mail like TiggersCollars does and so you already know my take on them from my TC review.

QUALITY: 100000000/10

YES, absolutely the BEST tail I have ever received. It is lightly stuffed, with no wiring making it super swishy. The attachments were a long red ribbon and a pin that was just your average safety pin, that were tucked in a black webbing loop. I thought that was great because if you’re like me who needs a more heavy duty pin because you love to wag your tail, then it is easy to slip the pin it comes with out and replace it- like I did shown. You could also replace the ribbon with a different colour if you had another tail from them or just extra ribbon lying around. The fur is really soft, and looks real. You can’t see any stitching which is always a good thing. 

ADDITIONS:

I wore this tail out once with my master and I received so many compliments on it. Compared to when I wore my KPP set, I didn’t get as much compliments on the tail, more on the ears. Also this tail matches PERFECTLY to my Woodland Creature Shop ears, which is exactly why I bought it.

LASTLY:

The only thing I wish I would of done was bought the tail that is opposite of this one (white with the same brown fur as a tip), the red/black collar and leash set, and the cute Halloween collar! I missed out on all of them. D; 3

I definitely will buy all my tails from them, I absolutely love this tail. I 100% recommend checking out KittenEnchantment!

anonymous asked:

What would be the best way to make a faux fur tail curl like an Akita tail? Sewing it? Adding wire? Glue? Praying to the petplay gods?

Anon, 

Haha! Good question!

My instinct would say that you would want strong wiring and firm stuffing. I would say the best resource for this would be furry community information / furry shops actually. They make tails in all kinds of shapes and sizes and they always seem to stay upright. 

Speaking from personal experience these sorts of tails only really stand up when you have them on a belt or pinned down with like 2 or 3 pins. Ribbon moves too much, and the weight of the curl tends to make a plug “rotate” so the heaviest part is down instead of up, if that makes sense. 

Perhaps this video could be of help?

Good luck!

Savor (Ladybug Fanfiction)

(Okay, so this is my little contribution to the Ladybug community. Please let me know what you think and if you guys have any critiques on what I did well or how I could improve my writing I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you for taking the time to read this!)

Fandom: Miraculous Tales of Ladybug and Chat Noir

Pairing: Ladynoir

Rating: General Audience

Disclaimer: I do not own “Miraculous” or any of the characters.

Summary: Ladybug allows Chat to learn insignificant details about her. Chat Noir savors every bit.

Finally. After a whole year of fighting side by side and strengthening their bond of trust, Chat Noir, the bearer of cat-astrophic bad luck, was finally able to proclaim his greatest wish to his lady. Finally.

           “My Lady?” The alley cat began, toying with his leather faux tail. He winced at how shy he sounded compared to his usual displays of confidence and exuberance. But who could blame him? This wasn’t easy to bring up. Especially when it’s so near and dear to his heart.

           Ladybug, the luminous object of his heart, perks her head at the sound of his uncharacteristically timid voice. This was definitely weird. Even on Chat’s scale.

           He took in a deep breath and shut his eyes tight, bracing for yet another rejection.

           “You don’t have to tell me your identity! Just please let me know you!” The black cat, face ablaze, was ready to spring away from his perch on the Eiffel Tower and leap back home and hide.

           “Why?” Ladybug asks, quirking a perfect eyebrow and wearing a shaky smile. Cleary she was still weary of Chat trying to unmask her. If she accidentally revealed something significant, then it would be goodbye secrets and security. Not only that, but if an enemy was listening in, they might use that information against the duo. It wasn’t like Ladybug didn’t trust Chat. She just didn’t trust herself.

           But how many more rejections can he take? His heart is so full of love and admiration for his lady. All he wants is a chance to bring her closer to him even though she tries to pull away from him. Is that too much for this cat to ask for?

           “I…” Chat begins, tugging the end of his “tail” harder and clenching his teeth. “I just want to understand you Ladybug.” He keeps his head down so that he couldn’t see her expression and continued. “Like I said. You don’t have to tell me who you are. But…” He gulps and shudders. “I want to know the things that you like, don’t like, and even what you think about when there aren’t any akumas around.”

           Chat dared to bring his head back up and stare at the enchanting lights of Paris. Perhaps focusing on the city of love will give him courage to try and make his love understand.

           “For a long time, we’ve been at a distance from each other even though we fight side by side.” He went on when Ladybug didn’t speak. “I don’t really care too much about being Paris’s favorite hero. All I really want is someone to understand me and care about me as a person. And that’s what you’ve done for me.”

           The alley cat finally turns to look at his partner, noting the wide-eyed look that she gave him.

           “Now I want to do the same for you. Even if it’s just a little bit.” Chat finished with a little smile. “I want to know you. Not just as an image or idea. But as a person. A friend.”

           The two of them were silent for a few minutes. Chat turned back to Paris’s lights and waited patiently for Ladybug to think about his proposal. As he waited, he braced his heart for what he felt like was an inevitable rejection.

           In all honesty, whether or not Ladybug agreed to his idea, he would still love her and be by her side. They’ve gone through too much together for them to just split up because of something like this. Not only that, but they really do need each other in this battle.

           Chat Noir needed his lady to help him clean up the mess that he made with his bad luck. He also needed someone to remind him how having bad luck can be good luck in and of itself. It was almost like he was a walking example of hope. No matter how many times his luck may work against him, Chat still gets up and faces the day. He still gets up and tries.

           Ladybug, with all of her good luck, needed Chat’s bad luck to help her grow and learn as a person and as a hero. If she never made a mistake, then what was the point of her even trying anymore? In anything? And who else would be there to remind her that she wasn’t alone and that she didn’t have to shoulder the safety of Paris on her small shoulders?

           The spotted heroine mulls on this idea and sighs. That cat was probably her best friend, aside from Alya of course. Who else is there who could understand the stress and responsibilities of protecting your home and loved ones? And it wasn’t like Chat was ordering her to detransform and reveal herself. After all this time, Chat never forced her to do anything that she wasn’t uncomfortable with and he hardly (or actually never) asked for anything from her in return.

           It was the least that she could do for her friend.

           “I really like the color pink.” Ladybug began, grinning when her partner’s head shot back towards her with wide attentive eyes. “I also like deep royal blues, reds, as well.”

           Ladybug continued to grin as she stood up and readied her yoyo. The sun was beginning to rise and it was time for her to go home. Thank goodness it wasn’t a school night.

           “I also like the color green.” She said with a gentle smile, remembering her dear Adrien’s verdant eyes. Flicking her yoyo out with an expert hand, Ladybug began her race back home.

           Chat Noir was never happier. He felt blessed to finally make a small breakthrough with the love of his heart. And never had he felt luckier to have green eyes.

*****

           Over the next month, Adrien learned that Ladybug liked sugar cookies, the smell of mint (remembered to have at least one mint a day), and that she didn’t like fish (they agreed to disagree). He also learned that she liked to sit by the Seine and sort out her thoughts. He noted to stop by there every now and then so that he could feel closer to his lady and imagine meeting her there when they weren’t wearing their masks. Adrien also liked to imagine that he would be able to pick her out in the crowd that gathered around there.

           Adrien felt like he was finally making a silver lining in spite of his bad luck. He was making a connection to the one person he wanted to be closest to. At school, people would notice how gentle his smiles have become when he was alone and in his thoughts. The photographers have noted how an aura of calmness and sheet happiness made his modeling more sincere and lifelike compared to his previous stiffness.

           It was like Adrien was a new person. Someone who was becoming better with each little detail he found about his lady. Even patrol time, which was already wonderful due to the sheer fact that he could spend time with his love, became even more enjoyable.

           But…

           “Adrien. You’ve got to stop.” Plagg said with droopy ears. “You’re going to get hurt if this keeps up.”

           Adrien, tugging on his nightshirt (which was decorated with a little ladybug over his heart), frowns at his kwami. He shakes his head as he climbs into bed, Plagg gliding over to sit on his bedpost closest to Adrien’s head.

           “Why Plagg? I’m just getting closer to Ladybug.” He began, another gentle smile floating on his lips. “This is something I’ve always wanted. How can I get hurt?”

           Plagg shakes his head and bites his lip. This was unusual. Just like the time when Adrien asked Ladybug his question on the Eiffel Tower.

           “Listen. I’m only telling you this through experience.” His ears droop as his large green eyes close. “Every person who I have chosen to become a black cat, male and female, have always fallen victim to one thing: A broken heart.”

           That got Adrien’s attention.

           Plagg, sensing his companion’s gaze on him, continued.

           “It’s a constant cycle. Black cat finds his or her partner, becomes enraptured, then ensnared, and broken.” He shrugs. “I don’t know why. People I choose always fall in love with their respective partner. But the end is always the same.”

           Adrien bites his bottom lip and stares at his clenched fists in his lap.

           “So you’re saying that Ladybug is leading me to my doom or something? That the love I have for her is going to be my downfall?” He asks under his breath.

           “All I’m saying is that you need to stop before your heart gets broken like the rest of them have.” Plagg whispers as he floats up and lands on top of Adrien’s soft hair. “What if Ladybug is only allowing this because she wants to keep you as a friend? What if she’s already in love with someone else? What if an enemy uses your feelings for her against you?”

           What if. What if. What if.

           Those two words were spinning around in Adrien’s head and he began to feel sick.

           “The closer you hold her to your heart, the easier it will be for her to hurt you. Even if she doesn’t mean to.”  Plagg sighs. “This is my advice to you, as a friend: Stop trying to pursue a dream and look at what is right in front of you.”

           It would take a couple hours for Adrien to fall asleep. He didn’t want to surrender his love for his lady. She wasn’t a dream. She was, IS, real. Ladybug finally trusts him enough to divulge what she probably thought was insignificant. But to Adrien, her Chat Noir, they were everything. How can he “pursue” anyone or anything else when his heart has already been sealed away to HER?

           This is what he decided before he closed his eyes.

           Even if she broke his heart, fell in love with someone else, and even if the end result killed him or turned him into an akuma-ridden victim, Adrien knew that his heart would still be hers. He will savor every moment, every detail, until his dying day.

*****

           “It is only a matter of time.” A low voice echoes in the spacious room filled with white glowing butterflies. “Don’t think that I’m blind to your affections for your partner, Chat Noir. And don’t think that I don’t know how the course of history for your past kin affect your present and future.”

           Hawk Moth, a dark smirk and self-satisfied glow in his eyes, gazes out his window towards the Parisian skyline.

           “Whether it will be your broken heart or Ladybug’s guilt, one of you will come to me. And when that day comes, I will be ready. Waiting for you with open arms.”

           A dark butterfly flits through the window opening and lands in its master’s waiting hand, sending a report of its mission in tailing the lucky duo throughout their patrol. Hawk Moth’s smirk grew and his heart swelled with hope. His dream would soon be realized while theirs will be broken.

           “Yes. All in good time.”

           The room fades to black as the windows close and the butterflies disperse.

i remember this furry at my high school that everyone just kind of just hesitantly accepted? like one day this motherfucker rolled up with a hairband with wolf ears and a fucking faux fur tail clipped to the back of this hoodie he wore everyday and shit. he also barked (i believe he was wolfkin) and growled and made whimpering noises and ate doughnuts everyday and walked around with an open laptop in his hands in the hallways just to listen to music.

Summer Dreams

There was something niggling at the back of my mind when I pulled out this blouse and pinny from my closet but I simply couldn’t put my finger on it. It was only while editing the photos later that I realised that I had ended up wearing something very similar to this summer 2012 outfit by Calivintage! Erin has singularly been one of my biggest style inspirations since I discovered her blog in late 2009, so I see it as a sort of subconscious homage. I’ve been rediscovering pieces in my wardrobe which I haven’t worn in ages, but which somehow seem to translate perfectly to current trends, I guess. A corduroy pinafore? Nailed it. 

External image

Although I shampooed the night before these photos were taken (I’m temporarily back to ‘poo washes’ and olive oil deep conditioning while I switch from baking soda to reetha) this is what 'no-poo’ makes my hair look like with airdrying and no products. I guess I could tame the remaining frizziness with a few spritzes of coconut oil solution and heat styling, but honestly, I just LOVE the way my hair is finally falling into its natural waves. My ultimate goal is to have long, flowing, wavy, hippie hair ♥

okay so i’ve been thinking about a dragon age anime convention au

josephine: con staff member in charge of coordinating events and guests. favorite anime of all time is revolutionary girl utena. roses, ladies fighting for ladies, duels! it’s got everything! occasionally she and leliana will talk about what they’ve watched recently but generally they’re out of the loop on new anime seasons.

leliana: head of con security ops. josephine let her know about kuragehime and it’s become a guilty pleasure. probably really likes gunslinger girls and surprisingly, silver spoon. (the baby pig reminds her a lot of nugs) pushes for the con mascot to be a nug and josephine can’t say no.

cullen: he’s actually a basic entry-level casual but thinks he’s a nerd because all of his friends are super normies? stans really hard for attack on titan. (it’s like HIS FAVORITE ANIME OF ALL TIME you guys he listens to the OP on his morning runs to get pumped) watched sword art online at some point because it was on netflix. only watches dubs/shit that’s on adult swim.

cassandra: loves candy candy - probably wrote terry x reader fics when she was youngert. also really into the rose of versailles. buys all the shoujo merch while wearing a hoodie so no one will see her. she’ll watch any and all shoujo romance even if it’s utter trash. she likes ore monogatari and kimi ni todoke best out of recent animes.

iron bull: he’s watched like all the magical girl anime. all of it. sailor moon? cardcaptors? precure? saint tail? fucking obscure ass nurse angel ririka from the 90s? he’s watched it all. has a giant collection of magical girl wands because they’re pink and pretty. also loves berserk. dorian makes him watch  opm and he fucking loves it.

blackwall: lmao probably used to be a relatively famous RPer of some sort but got into nasty internet drama and had to drop his Rainier handle. grew a beard to avoid attention at cons. favorite anime/manga is naoki urasawa’s monster. feels 2 old to be at cons.

dorian: ur resident anime elitist (“EXCUSE ME, what do you MEAN dubs are better than subs???”), keeps a curated list of the “best anime”, has written essays about the overarching themes in his favorite animes (you can even look them up on scholarly databases), is actually surprised to learn that blackwall even knows what monster is and that iron bull watched all of saint tail. loves cowboy bebop and akira.

vivienne: cosplayer QUEEN in her youth. invited to cons now as a guest of honor/masquerade judge. you wish you could be her. she can be pretty harsh with her critiques but her craftsmanship skills are beyond compare. holds a lot of workshops/panels re: cosplay & vocal about the cosplay is not consent movement. really into cosplaying all the fanciest yoshitaka amano designs she can find.

solas: he’s a fucking furry. his fursona is “fen'harel” and he probably stands in a corner at the raves sulking mysteriously with a faux tail clipped to his pants. he also enters the art show with his paintings all the time but who knows if he actually sells them. (they’re probably of his fursona) talks about getting an artist alley table all the time. never does. watches wolf’s rain on repeat.

varric: won the tokyopop rising stars of manga contest with his original manga but tokyopop went out of business so he’s pretty much faded into obscurity. while he was working on other writign projects, hawke introduced him to voice acting so now he’s a b-list voice actor with bit parts who gets invited to all the cons because his schedule is so open all the time. great with fans, will record funny voice mail messages for you if you ask nicely.  

cole: you may be deceived because he enjoys collecting arpakasso plushies but all he ever reads is by junji ito. his favorite is the junji ito’s cat diary.

sera: watches anime every now and then but isn’t SUPER into any particular anime/manga fandom. (that’s more of her girlfriend dagna’s thing) actually a league of legends streamer who goes to cons to WRECK people in tournaments. lmao probably both a sore loser and a sore winner. unfortunately likes the american dub of shin chan much to the chagrin of dorian and dagna. dorian suggests she watch osomatsu and she seems to be enjoying it.

dagna: really fucking good at making props. makes complicated, to scale model props from LoL for sera. runs a youtube channel on cosplay tutorials, occasionally pops in sera’s stream to show off her new creations. favorite anime is fullmetal alchemist. she wants to cosplay scheska one day.
