If we are talking normal products, this tea tree shampoo/conditioner is the bomb! To style it, a light styling cream and a little hairspray is all I use. Since my hair is longer now and very straight, it doesn’t need much.
But people always ask me how my hair looks so healthy and shiny and I have one word for them. OILS! I use a variety of essential oils on my hair everyday. Each one with its own purpose, such as cedarwood for healthy hair growth, lemon and rosemary to prevent dry/flaky scalp, frankincense to prevent hair loss, and so on (small brown bottle is thyme). I mix them with a little fractionated coconut oil and apply every night/ morning before I go to bed, then wash out when I wake up. I’ve only been doing this for a few months and my hair has never looked better!
Prompt: hello :D I was wondering if I could
request a Jackson Whittemore imagine, please? Maybe he’s in detention and
during it, he meets a flustered reader - although she isn’t in detention, she’s
running errands for the teacher. I would really appreciate it. x
Note: This is my first Jackson prompt and I changed it up just a little bit. I actually work at a library so this was so much fun to write. Anyways, I hope y’all enjoy it as much as I loved writing it.
I walked into the library with my last errand
for the day. I’m an office aide so my last period is usually running errands
around school for the secretary and principal. It involves going to classes to
have teachers sign some last minute forms, passing down messages or memos, and
flyers that needed to be passed out to the students before the final bell rang.
I didn’t mind it one bit. I like helping others. Plus, this was an easy A and
would look great for my college applications.
As I made my way to the front desk where Mr.
Harris was talking to the students that had dentition, I took off my backpack
and tucked it in a bottom cabinet behind the front desk with my purse as I
volunteer at the library everyday after school. I grabbed the form Mr. Harris
needed to sign and return back to the main office before he left for the day.
“Oh and one last thing,” Mr. Harris said as I
walked towards him. “You’ll help Y/N put all of these books back on the shelf
in their proper places,” Mr. Harris motioned towards the overloaded carts
filled with books. “The carts must be empty before you leave.”
I look at the students sitting down at the
tables and noticed they were all in my grade. I noticed Scott and Stiles
sitting together with Allison. Erica was by herself, and Matt, Danny, and
Jackson were on another table. My eyes landed on Jackson as I saw him in a deep
conversation with Danny and Matt. I’ve always thought he was gorgeous. His brown
hair was short and clean cut. I’ve always wanted to run my fingers through his
hair because it always looked so soft and shiny. He had a cute little nose with
barely visible freckles spreading across his nose and high cheekbones. He had
an impressive jawline with a killer smile. Lastly, his crystal blue irises were
my favorite. They were absolutely breathtaking. If I could, I would look into
his eyes and get lost for hours.
To say I had a crush on him is an
understatement. I’ve known him my entire life, but guys like him didn’t notice
or talk to girls like me. Beautiful people herd together as I once overheard
Stiles say. I wasn’t considered popular, nor was I a cheerleader, and judging
by the fact I’ve never been asked out on a date had me thinking I wasn’t as
pretty or beautiful as most girls. Besides, pretty boys like Jackson are always
taken and wouldn’t give girls like me the time of day.
The macadamia oil hair line OH MY GOOOOOOD okay so like, you know how different people have different MVPS? Like really ridiculously on point eyebrows, or the perfectly lined lip, or amazing winged eyeliner? My hair is my mvp. Its out there, doing its thing, looking killer, and I respect it because it respects ME. And this macadamia line is like spa therapy for your hair, it makes it feel SO GOOD ALL THE TIME. It legit does all the work for you, it makes anything you want to do look better, even just doing NOTHING your hair will still look good. I use the deep repair masque as a conditioner (you need hardly any, leave it in for the exact length of Beyonce’s ‘XO’), and then spray the oil through my hair before towel drying. IM NOT EVEN USING THE WHOLE LINE AND IT MAKES MY HAIR LOOK SO HEALTHY AND SHINY miracle worker for real
GARNIER MICELLAR WATER. This shit is like liquid GOLD. This is what Nicholas Flamel discovered 500 years ago that’s kept him alive for so long. This is hands down the best make up remover I have EVER used, including fancy ones like clinique and a sample I got from a lady hawking napoleon perdis one time. Its like GPS for makeup, its like those pigs they use in the south of France to find truffles, waterproof mascara truffles, long wear lipstick truffles. This got away from me please try garnier micellar water
TheBalm blush in cabana boy. I hardly ever use blush cause I’m pale like death and any colour shows up right away, but i bought this because I love the packaging so much and i’m a responsible consumer like that. And it has a mirror so I keep the little compact in my bag and use it for whatever (and because I really, really love the packaging). But its actually really good? Highly pigmented so you only need the barest bit, which means it will last FOREVER. The other colors in the line look just as good, and Frat Boy is a dupe for NARS orgasm (like, its not NARS. but it could be. if you squint. or look from far away in slightly dimmed lighting).
Gel nail polish seems whack to me and, having been told pretty severely my entire life to avoid the sun at all costs, the idea of putting my fingers under UV light seems very counterintuitive. So i was hella happy when they came out with miracle gel, which is one of those hybrid products that says it gives the same results as the hardcore stuff but of course doesn’t, but there’s no death rays involved so I feel like that’s a fair compromise. I’m currently wearing it in Dig Fig, which is this amazingly deep oxblood colour I imagine Annalise from How to Get Away with Murder would wear to court when defending a particularly guilty client.
NYX lip creams I CANT BELIEVE I HAD FOUR PRODUCTS TO PUT AHEAD OF THIS these creams are fucking amaaazing, they’re a true matte but they don’t dry or flake, they come in an awesome range of colours named after all different cities (I have Sao Paulo, Amsterdam, Addis Ababa, Tokyo, Antwerp, Monte Carlo… you get the point, I have a lot of lip products and the names are cool) and they last for aaaages they hardly even smudge after you eat. Sometimes the color on the bottle isn’t true to the actual color - eg Buenos Aires is a light pink bottle but the cream itself has a strong orange/warm undertone, as someone who looks horrendous in coral I was SHOCKED, SHOCKED - but that just means you should swatch before u buy, no big.
And OK this is not a recent purchase but I feel like it needs saying: dry shampoo. DRY SHAMPOO. Where would I be without it? Who would i be? Ive gotten to the point where I use it instead of hairspray for texture - like look at this braid I did the other day. WITH DRY SHAMPOO YOU, TOO, CAN GIVE YOUR ‘DESPERATE TO NOT GET HOT IN RIDICULOUS PRE-SUMMER HEAT’ UPDOS VOLUME AND LIFT. I use batiste with a hint of brunette cause I don’t need weird aerosol white patches in my hair from flagrant dry shampoo abuse, but their cherry smells amazing too.
Ok, so I realize that their birthday is the 29th, but I know I’ll forget to post if it I don’t get it over with. They mentioned a short-haired Stevonnie a while back, so here they are! Happy (early) birthday, @cat-pun!
