Alright y'all, with school season comin back, here are some prime hoe tips to get y'all ready to slay.
🌹1. Develop a skincare regimen at least once daily: wash, exfoliate*, mask*, toner, essential oils, moisturize.
*once weekly, to avoid overshocking your skin.
🌙2.Tea tree oil is bomb for acne and acne scars. Apply that shit.
🌹 Coconut oil and castor oil for brow/lash growth every night.
🌙Go through your closet, and toss clothes you don’t wear. Invest in more neutral colors and fits to configure a wider variety of cute ass outfits.
🌹 Don’t be afraid to thrift shop; places like TJ Maxx and The Goodwill have bomb ass brands for cheap.
🌙 Get your books/supplies ready a week before. Prepare yourself.
🌹 Have all of your test dates/assignment due dates in your phone before classes start. Make sure to request off days of work the nights before major assignments and exams if you can help it.
🌙 Things to keep in a bag in your locker: pads/tampons, an extra pair of panties, a spare change of clothes & shoes(in case of a wardrobe malfunction), hairbrush and hairtie, nail file & clippers, makeup remover wipes, concealer, masacara, gum, water bottle, extra pens, some spare cash, phone charger, and earbuds.
🌹 Keep a water bottle in ya bag at all times. A hoes gotta be hydrated.
🌙 Keep up with ya studies
🌹 A week before school starts, develop getting sleep schedule for school by going to bed half an hour earlier every night. This’ll make waking up earlier less of a hell, trust me.
🌙Have a go-to makeup look for school that takes 30 mins or less as a default, if you beat your face in the morning.
🌹 Replace coffee with tea for a more healthy caffeine fix before class.
🌙 Prepare yourself a decent breakfast before you go to bed, so you can easily grab and go in the morning. Breakfast kickstarts your metabolism and decreases cravings throughout the day, and generally boosts your mood and brain power.
🌹If you wear a uniform, make sure that shit is comfortable and actually fits you. Make sure nothing hangs off of you, cuts off circulation, itches, irritates, etc.
🌙Need a break from studying? Work out. Burn some calories, clear your mind, and stimulate your brain with some exercise. Swear to god this keeps my grades up and my body lookin fly.
🌹Invest in a hair mask (any pharmacy or makeup outlet will have them), or make one yourself. They make your hair super soft and shiny for flipping it when you walk past that group of girls who hate you lol
Thats all I can think of for now beauties, get good grades, I believe in all of y'all✨🌹
1: Wash your hair.. Yes wash your hair every 2 weeks. As, a natural black girl we use tons of products on our hair. Which can lead up to product build up and dirty hair. Be sure to use sulfate free shampoos and to condition your hair. Some good natural hair brands are creme of nature, cantu and kera care. Be sure to condition your hair and let it air dry. Stay away from heat! If you prefer to blow dry your hair instead be sure to use a blow dryer hair attachment comb with heat protection spray to detangle your hair.
2: De-tangle your hair once a week. Because, our hair is kinky it is easy for our hair strands to get tangled against one another which can cause hair to matt, dread and even break off.
3: Condition your hair 2-3 times a week. Make your hair stays moistured and healthy. Dry hair leads to brittle hair and than you will have to cut your hair overall.
4: Get trims every 3-4 months. It is very easy to forget to care for your ends…. this will cause slit ends and your hair will break off eventually and it will never grow if your ends arent healthy. Always get your ends checked out by your trusted hair stylist to etend growth and maintain healthy hair.
5: Be sure to sleep with a satin scarf/bonnet every night as well as satin pillow cover cases. Regular pillow cases can cause damange to your hair especially your ends and cause it to break off due to you move around at night and your hair being pulled.
