PERFECT Curls: Flatter On The Top/Lightly Curled On The Bottom

The Skinny Confidential talks hair.The Skinny Confidential talks hair.

Today we’re talking HAIRRRRRR.

You guys have asked how I curl my hair.

Ok so I’m very, very, very specific when I curl my hair.

You guys obviously know I’m a huge fan of The Sleep Bun.

But how do you get pre-Sleep Bun curls?

The Skinny Confidential talks hair.

WHEEEEELP, let’s start from the very beginning:

1.) I always curl OUTWARD. NEVER inward. If you’re curling inward then you’re going to get that bridal curl. Not my thing at all. I always curl outward.

2.) Use the right curling iron. Yes. There’s such a thing. I’m obsessed with Nume’s curling iron. There’s no chipper thing. The chipper thing gives me a bump in my hair…& no one likes bumps. So I am big advocate of no chipper curling irons.

3.) Never start above the ears. Seriously though. Start curling the hair UNDER the ears. Don’t start from the top. It looks like Shirley Temple if you do.

4.) Brush your hair first. I know, right? Me brush my hair? HA! I promise I do before I curl it. I’m obsessed with this paddle brush. I like to brush the top a little AFTER it’s curled too. Only the top, not the curls at the bottom.

5.) Leave an inch out. I always leave an inch out of the curling iron. Keep an inch out ALWAYS.

6.) Use a little oil afterwards. I love adding a little argan oil (insert Nume’s oil here). Argan oil has SOOOOOooo many benefits ( to name a few: it makes the hair silker, it’s amazing for split ends, & adds moisture without adding shine ). More benefits can be found here.

7.) As far as hairspray is concerned…don’t use too much!! Just a little. A little goes a long way.

8.) Pull it through. I like to pull the curls out with my fingers a little. I tossle it a little before I leave the house & kind of pull the curls downward with my finger tips.

9.) SLEEP BUN IT UP!! I live & die for The Sleep Bun. After I’ve curled my hair, I sleep on it! Check out this full tutorial.

10.) Don’t wash it for a few days. Heyyyyyy, come on now. A little dirty hair never hurt a flea. The curls always look best the 3rd/4th day!! #sorrynotsorry

Here’s pre-Sleep Bun, freshly curled hair, by the way:

Another 5 Second Party In Your Mouth: Honey/Fig Jam (!!!) With WEN Hair Care

Ok so if you guys read The Skinny Confidential Lifestyle Guide & this post you already know that I AM OBSESSED WITH WEN cleansing conditioner. Their products are bomb.com ( << just realness ).

So when they asked me to create a fig recipe to match their fig conditioner, I said “uhhhh…duh.”

I genuinely love WEN, so it’s kind of a win/win. The creator of WEN, Chaz Dean just understands a woman’s hair. My locks always look super luscious after using the product.

AND FIGS!!!

YOU GUYSS!!! I mean…it’s all about figs.

So today I present: honey/fig jam.

It’s kinda like this little quick raspberry jam but it’s almost better because what the hell is better than figs x honey ( plus some lemon & chia seed )? So Martha S.

Going off on a tangent here: remember Fig Newton’s? Makes me feel so nostalgic. Everyone ate them when they were younger? Yellow box? Anyway I can vividly remember my parents thinking they were fully healthy.

Whelp- welcome to 2014, because guess what?

They’re filled with GMO’s…UGGGH.

So attention Fig Newton lovers: this raw honey fig jam will replace the so-called ‘healthy cookies.’

And FIGSSSS!! Like, the real figs…they’re full of benefits. To name a few: they are filled ( like, FILLED ) with fiber, they keep your digestive system healthy ( nudge, nudge, wink, wink ), & are a major antioxidant/super food.

A fig recipe by The Skinny Confidential.

For this recipe: cut figs in half, scoop fig-goodness out ( I used the best invention ever: a melon scooper ), add to a tiny bowl, add 2 tablespoons of chia seeds, 2 squeezes of lemon, 3 squeezes of raw honey, & mash/mash/mash ( ‘Crush’ mashing bowl found here ). Spread on your favorite piece of toast ( I prefer a Rudi’s spelt English muffin with this 5 second recipe ). Other options: add to two ingredient pancakes, use as a baked potato or sweet potato topping, &/or crackers with cheese.

So eat your figs, people.

Ok, so I’m totally going to go wash my hair with fig conditioner & eat fig jam.

Peace, Lauryn

Lauryn Evarts talks diet, fitness, fashion, & health.Ummm, so I’m obsessed with Nordstrom’s new activewear, Zella.

My crush on Zella started when I bought their leggings a year ago when Weslie from Love Chugs recommended them.

I mean…I’m such a legging-whore that it’s honestly kinda pathetic. Like, I know my freaking leggings, people.

So I can say with the upmost confidence that they’re seriously, without a doubt, my absolute favorite clothing piece I own ( remember them here too? )

Lauryn Evarts from The Skinny Confidential wears Zella.

Ok let’s get down to business…

This neon shirt though.

When I put on this lil, hot pink number ( I wore it backwards… on purpose ), I fell even deeper in love with Zella.

It’s everything. It’s flirty, girly, cool, & workout-y.

My favorite part though?

After taking a barre class yesterday in this get-up, I ran twenty errands because I felt kinda cute & wanted to show it off.

Because feeling cute in workout clothes is like, seriously the best thing ever.

EVER. Right?!
