Curly Girl Hair

Buckle up, this is a really long and detailed post. It’s no secret that this summer has been hot and humid and rainy. The perfect storm (haha – I’m so punny) for us curly hair girls to be at our witts end. Having curly hair has its own special kind of challenge. And only other curly hair girls understand the love/hate relationship we have with our tresses.

What’s universally most frustrating, I think, is the inconsistency. One day your curls will literally be swoon-worthy, and the next, even if you use the same exact technique and formula, it can be a frizzy, flat mess. Ugh. This is a total IYKYK (if you know, you know) kind of situation. It’s our own personal curly hair purgatory. I won’t call it hell, because it is not all bad, it’s just also not all good all the time.

Curly Girl Hair Frustrations

I typically wear my curly hair straight. I’m a grandma and get a weekly blowdry or use the Dyson Airwrap (read my full review here – it’s amazeballs!) But with the current rain and humidity, my curls are breaking thru. I was publically airing my curly hair dirty laundry on my Instagram Story and sooooo many people responded. Sharing their favorite products or techniques to achieve curly, bouncy, soft, non-frizzy curls. Curly hair girls are the best! And not only that, many of you have reached out wanting to know what I learned and if I’d share. The answer to that is ALWAYS a yes! I am a sharer, possibly an oversharer. But it did take me a while to collect all of the good info – but here is it, finally!

Hallie’s Hot List – June Edition

It’s summa, summa, summa time! Yahoo, right?!? And raise your hand if you got that Fresh Prince reference. I linked the music video for either nostalgia or education, depending on that hand raise, LOL!  The Hallie’s Hot List, June edition is focusing on the things I’m loving now that the weather has turned warm. It’s full of fun in the sun goodies that are vetted by me, tried and true.

Think, sunscreen, bathing suit coverups, sun hats, sundresses… You know, the things we all need and use this time of year but that can be hard to know what really works or not until you try.

What’s on the Hot List for June?
