Hello Hello Everyone!

Wow has it been long since my last post and I'm so excited to be back. I feel like I usually talk a lot about makeup but today I wanted to talk to you a little bit about my hair. It's been growing quite a bit in the last few years and it's been getting a little harder to manage. Every now and then I will straighten it but sometimes It could be a burden since it takes forever, I have to give the hair straightener a break to heat up again, and by the time I'm done the whole room is super duper hot and I'm already sweating and exhausted. My hair is currently 33 inches long. I would say it's wavy-ish. It once upon a time was curly. And it's definitely fluffy and frizzy. Keep in mind that I'm not a hair professional, but I do like to straighten my hair about twice a month and I've been pretty happy with the way it's been looking lately.

So, I knew there had to be an easier way to manage my long hair and be able to straighten it. And so I came across this hair straightener which I have been using for 6 months now and it's changed the entire hair straightening game for me!

NuMe Hair Straightener
I discovered an amazing tool for my hair- the NuMe Megastar X- 1.75" hair straightener. Honestly, It's the only straightener I've been using since the day I got it and it's my most favorite/holy grail hair straightener. That's a lot to say, but I've said it.

Size: 1.75 inches wide
Color: Black and Rose Gold
Heat: It goes up to 450 degrees. I use it at 410 degrees. It stays hot the entire time you use it. No need to wait for it to re-heat.

What was the biggest difference I noticed?
I was so used to using 1 inch hair straighteners, but this one is 1.75 inches wide and covers a lot more of my hair at once. It used to take me 45 minutes to straighten my hair and now it takes me 20 minutes. Not even kidding. I believe the reason why it takes me less time to straighten it now is because the heat stays throughout the entire time and the plates are wider.

How I straighten my hair?
I like to make sure my hair is completely dry before starting. I will usually let my hair air dry throughout the day and straighten it once it's completely dry. Then, I split the hair into 4 sections- down the middle of the head and across the ears. Each section gets clipped up and I will straighten each section beginning from one end to the other. I also like to brush my hair throughout to ensure I'm not creating any knots and also to release heat from the strands of hair as I straighten.

Why do I only straighten twice a month?
Honestly, it's just a personal preference. I do like how my hair looks "natural" (long-wavy-fluffy). But every now and then I like to change it up. Also, I prefer to straighten it twice a month to ensure I'm not applying too much heat and allow it to stay healthy and growing. I feel like many straighteners I have will burn my ends really fast, but this one hasn't and that's amazing! It also really helps that I air dry my hair. If I must use a hair dryer I will only dry the roots and let the ends air dry.

What results have I noticed?
My hair stays soft, smooth, and shiny for days. I only touch up the areas around my face since the hair near the face gets wet when I wash my face or shower.

This has been my secret for the last 6 months with my hair. It's the fastest and easiest way I've found to get my hair looking sleek and shiny in just a few minutes. Let me know if you give this straightener a go. I only recommend things I truly love to you (family, friends, and new friends).

See you next time!
