I’m sharing #WholeBlends in my life as part of a Garnier sponsored series for Socialstars™.


It’s been a hot minute since I’ve done hair tutorials with my hairstylist Brittany of Tanglez Hair and Makeup, so I thought it was about time again! I love going to Brittany because not only is she my neighbor, but we love coming up with new hairstyles together! 🙂 As you probably noticed from my photos, I LOVE to curl my hair. However, oftentimes, I just end up curling my hair and my look is done. However, once in awhile it’s nice to mix up the curled hair look and do something fun with it, but quick and easy too, that is KEY. Because this mama is busy and doesn’t have a lot of time to get ready usually! So here goes my 3 quick and easy hairstyles for curled hair!

I’ve teamed up with Garnier to talk about their Coconut Water and Vanilla Milk product line.  Their moisturizing yet refreshingly lightweight formula blooms with a tropical fragrance of coconut water and vanilla milk, bringing to life a wholesome care that quenches and softens dehydrated hair. I have been using this shampoo and conditioner, along with the hydrating mask and my hair smells good and is great for getting some thirst back into my colored hair. Having a balayage hair color is something that I really love because it makes hairstyles show up better, but I know it can be damaging to my hair, so it’s important that I use products that are wholesome and will soften my hair.
