247580387Hey guys! So
today I wanted to do another hair post, but, this time I am gonna talk about  newfound products I love at this moment as well as share with you how I did my awesome curls that I have been rocking lately. They are so, so easy to do and it will only take you a couple minutes!

First lets start with products; Sally Beauty Supply is my go to for any professional hair products which you may already know. When I posted my old video on how I went from brown to grey hair you probably noticed that all the items I used were bought at Sally Beauty Supply because they have everything I need in just one place! Most of the times that I got here I know exactly what I want but the other day I went there to browse for new products and I came across these awesome products that I will be talking about today.

Since I do have extensions in my hair  wanted to find something to help me nourish my hair. I do a hair mask once a week to maintain shine and to keep the extensions healthy since they can benefit or get any nutrients from my natural hair oils. Now, it is also extremely important that I use products without parabens so a lot of items that I once used I no longer can use and I’ve had to get new things. Now of course these are always better choices, extensions or not, it is just more important that I dot use it when I do have extensions in my hair.

I found this awesome bran called ion, which I for some reason have never even looked at before. Most of their items are 100% vegan, paraben and sulfate free! I made sure to look on every single bottle to make sure I wouldn’t pick up an item that had parabens in it. I picked up the ion Heat Protecting Smoothing Spray, ion Volumizing Freezing Spray and the ion Dry Shampoo which I will be using for styling my hair. You can watch the video a little further down!!

At Sally Beauty Supply I also picked up some silk drops from ion to add some shine if my hair ever looks a little ry and dull and of course my favorite organ oil to add some nutrients and shine because LA is extremely hot right now and it is just not a good time.

I absolutely fell in love with both the hairspray and the dry shampoo, I honestly think these are the best I have ever used. The day after my hair wasn’t at all dry or kind of sticky that it gets sometimes when you use hairspray. And the dry shampoo just really did the work its supposed to do extremely well and I was super impressed. Anyways if you are on the hunt for  new hair products, or styling tools or even just hair color Sally Beauty Supply is definitely the place to go.  I would recommend them any day to anyone. Take a moment to watch how I make my awesome curls.

A few weeks ago when I was in Sweden I visited the Rapunzel Of Sweden salon in Gothenburg to get some extensions put into my hair. I haven’t had permanent extensions in my hair for about a year and a half now and was really eager to get longer and fuller hair again. Let me just disclaim that I from start wanted to have micro rings, which I even told them. And they said that I would have multiple options once I got to the salon. But when I got there I was told that mirroring wasn’t an option because that would have to be ordered ahead of time. So, I did feel a little bit forced into doing the tape extensions since obviously was wasn’t an option. I have also tried wax and that was my first time ever having extensions in and it was awful. I have had microns two times and I was really comfortable with it, I really liked it and it was easy for me so I was a little bit sad about not being able to use that method. I had to try the tape method instead.

This is the results after visiting the salon. My hairdresser, Johanna, intensified my natural hair colors which are darker in the roots and then naturally sun bleached by making the color a little bit more chocolaty before we went ahead and put in the extensions. As you can see it is a little it darker and kind of fades out. We used a mix of no. 2 and no.3 in the brown shades to get a more natural result. I also have the 50 cm length.

Right now I am still learning to get used to it. It has been about 3 weeks and I am not yet sure if i will keep the extensions or take them out in a few weeks when they are due for some maintenance Even though I absolutely love having long hair again, it is also extremely hot in LA and maybe the timing wasn’t perfect. I also would really like to do a YouTube video answering your questions about tape in extensions or hair extensions. So if you have any questions please comment them or tweet me @reduxsuqad_.

In February I finally dwcided to get my hans on, probably one of the last, Ambient Lightning palettes from Hourglass. Simply because I wanted it and had swatched it in store before she it got out. The only thing stopping me from being it earlier was definitely the price. $80 for this little thing but oh my it was so worth the money once I finally got it. I remember watching it in Sephora and just being like wow I want it, but my bank account won’t allow it right now.

The packaging is just so luxurious and it has a huge mirror on the inside making it the absolute perfect palette on the go. The powders are not only highlights but can also be used to matte down and just brighten up a little bit. The Ambient Lightning palette was part of the 2015 Holiday limited edition from Hourglass and is therefore not sold anymore, unless you can find it somewhere. Hourglass do however have a smaller 3 blush palette now as well as singles. But all of those have a significantly lesser value than it would beeen to have gotten this one palette instead. IMG_3784 IMG_3785

The palette comes with 3 blushes and 3 highlights / brightening powders. And oh my god, the pigmentation on these are amazing! They are also so, so smooth and it also barely looks like you are using any of the product because the payoff is great.
