Secret hair curling tips you need to know!

Women with big curls or glamorous waves are gorgeous and sexy. Big curls accent the face shape. Curly hairs that fall into ringlets are gorgeous and women with curly hair can get spotted easily in the crowd. Who already have curly tresses will spend less time on fixing hair than others. If you have straight hair and want an instant curl on hair, there are several secret tips you may follow. The most effective way to have curly hairs is using hot rollers. The outcome of curling your hair will depend on how you will prepare your tresses and how you will use the hot rollers.

The size of hot rollers can give a different outcome. For example, small hot rollers are used to have tight curls and large rollers provide loose waves. Just remember that if you want to add volume to your short hair, you need tighter curls. Since your hair needs enough protection from the heat, you can wash your hair using good quality shampoo and a small amount of conditioner. In the end, you can use some moisturizing mousse so your curls will last longer. If it is hard to curl hair, then wash your hair the day before you will use hot rollers on it.

Here are some useful tips about how to use the hot rollers to achieve the curls that you want.

1. Divide your hair into sections.

If you prefer tight and defined curls, you should divide the hair into smaller parts and you can use clips to prepare your hair. One-inch sections are enough to provide the best result because smaller sections will provide more defined curls and it will look much better. Depending on the size of your rollers, you may experiment with different hairstyles.

2. Preparing the hot rollers. It is important that you know how many rollers you will need, because some hot rollers heat up fast, some may heat up slower. Prepare and heat up only the number of rollers you need, then you can roll your hair on it once it is set. You will need clips as well, because you need it to clamp the hair into the roller to secure it. Make sure that you know where to hold the roller, in case it gets too hot.

3. Rolling the Hot Rollers.

The best way to go when dividing and putting the rollers is top to bottom, because in this way, you can prevent your hair from being tangled and you will not get confused. It is important that you roll everything on it that includes the tips, to achieve a nice curl. Take extra precaution in handling the rollers.

4. Let the hot rollers cool down.

Remove hot rollers only when it cools down completely and never brush your hair while it is still hot. Waiting for some time will help to achieve the curls that you want and curls will last longer. If you have rollers that heat up fast, then you can save more time. To make the curls last longer, you can spray some hairspray while the rollers are still on your hair. When you are removing the rollers, remove the clip first and then slowly take out the roller without putting pressure that can cause damage.

5. Set your curls.

Do not be surprise if after removing the rollers, your hair will look shorter than it was before. Loosen the curls using your fingers, and style it the way you want. You can put some anti-frizz serum and spread out evenly. You should focus on the ends of your hair, because this is the part that frizzes easily.

Inside the world of fibromyalgia, Personal Insights, Treatments and Advice.

Fibromyalgia is a long-term (chronic) condition that can cause widespread pain and tenderness over much of the body. It’s quite common – up to 1 person in every 25 may be affected, so that means everyone you talk to will have a friend or relative who has fibromyalgia !



1981 The first scientific study confirmed that symptoms and tender points could be found in the body.

1990 The American College of Rheumatology wrote the first set of guidelines to help diagnose fibromyalgia.

2005 The first guidelines for treating fibromyalgia pain were published by the American Pain Society.

2007 The first prescription medication was FDA-approved to manage fibromyalgia.

In 1880, American neurologist George William Beard coined the terms neurasthenia and myelasthenia to describe widespread pain along with fatigue and psychological disturbance. He believed the condition was caused by stress.

Fibrositis, coined in 1904 by British neurologist Sir William Gowers, is the one that stuck. The symptoms Gowers mentioned will look familiar to those with fibromyalgia:

  • spontaneous pain
  • sensitivity to pressure
  • fatigue
  • sleep disturbances
  • sensitivity to cold

Symptoms of fibromyalgia ( can range from mild to severe )

  • Inability to concentrate (called “fibro fog”)
  • Restless legs syndrome
  • feeling too hot or too cold – this is because you’re not able to regulate your body temperature properly
  • Fibromyalgia can affect your sleep. You may often wake up tired, even when you’ve had plenty of sleep.
  • The pain could feel like:
    • an ache
    • a burning sensation
    • a sharp, stabbing pain


In some cases, having the condition can lead to depression. This is because fibromyalgia can be difficult to deal with, and low levels of certain hormones associated with the condition can make you prone to developing depression.

  • constantly feeling low
  • feeling hopeless and helpless
  • losing interest in the things you usually enjoy

Fibrositis continued to gain acceptance, even though doctors couldn’t agree on exactly what it was. In 1949, a chapter on the condition appeared in a well-regarded rheumatology text book called Arthritis and Allied Conditions. It read, “[T]here can no longer be any doubt concerning the existence of such a condition.” It mentioned several possible causes, including:

  • infection
  • traumatic or occupational
  • weather factors
  • psychological disturbance

Overlapping conditions include:

Overlapping conditions are different in each case of fibromyalgia but they are very important to keep a record of because they may give a clue as to the cause of the individuals condition, every cause is different for each individual and that’s why doctors approaches often fail because they aren’t looking at the individual as a unique person. They just treat illnesses with the same textbook drugs and therapies which can be very damaging to the individuals life.ack of vitamin B12 can wreak havoc in your body and make your FM symptoms worse. If you think you may have low vitamin B12 levels, be sure to ask your doctor to order a blood test to check your vitamin levels.

A lack of vitamin B12 can wreak havoc in your body and make your FM symptoms worse. If you think you may have low vitamin B12 levels, be sure to ask your doctor to order a blood test to check your vitamin levels.

In 1997, researchers at Sweden’s Goteborg University’s Institute of Clinical Neuroscience surveyed 12 women who suffered from fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. All the women had higher than normal levels of a substance called homocysteine in their cerebrospinal fluid. They also suffered from low B12 levels. The Swedish researchers found a correlation between B12 deficiency and the high homocysteine levels

I felt this was a high quality product and would reccomend anyone who loves candles to use the website!



Happiness is a choice?

“”Its easier to sit and sulk and live in the depression than it is to get up and get out but happiness is a choice and you deserve that choice so choose it for yourself”

I was at a concert when an artist said this to the audience and you could tell that it touched a lot of people throughout the crowd, Including myself. I just want to go into this quote a little deeper and acknowledge what it means. Is happiness really a choice or does it take more than that? For me, I believe it is both.

I believe that you can choose to start making yourself happy and that process will take time. You need to find the things that make you happiest in life and enjoy them as much as possible. It could be a person, a hobby, a sport, anything. I believe that we make…

5 Tips For Overcoming Writers Block

Ashleigh Writes

Whether your writing a blog post, a novel, or anything in between, we all will have experienced writers block at some point and it can be difficult to push through. Staring at a blank screen waiting for the inspiration to somehow hit you isn’t going to help the situation. In this post I have a couple of tips to help overcome writers block.

1. Listen to music. Music, especially with fictional writing, is great for inspiration I find. I love listening to the lyrics of songs and creating scenes from them with the whole emotion behind it. Or maybe one lyric gets your mind thinking and this can turn into a blog posts, who knows. Music seems to be my go to for inspiration; I would definitely recommend it!

2. Keeping up with the news. I find this especially useful when I’m writing blog posts; it’s another source of inspiration…

Hey everyone! I think you’ll all know that these past few weeks have seen the Anastasia Beverly Hills Fall collection drop and break the internet. In the Fall collection they had the new Subculture eyeshadow palette, all new matte lipsticks, the liquid glows and they surprisingly brought back the Moonchild Glow Kit.

I’ve been wanting the Moonchild Glow Kit since they announced it’s released at least 2/3 years ago now but I found it impossible to get hold of in the UK and I didn’t fancy paying ridiculous shipping costs on the Anastasia website, so I waited and waited and now it’s finally back but I made a stupid mistake.

2017-08-03 10.16.31 1.jpg

When the launch came round onto Beauty Bay I blanked that the possibility of the glow kit returning to the site could actually happen so I quickly got to the checkout with the Subculture palette, paid and that was that…

Structure hair oil review + results pics !


Glitz wood was sent a hair product to try out ! smooths hock by structure hair. Didn’t really know what to expect because I’m totally new to the brand and I have been through a lot of hair products with having such long curly hair 😁

Smoothshoock is different to other hair oils I have tried because although it’s considered a nourishing oil product it comes along as foam which in my opinion is easily applied.


As you can see from the picture above the results are fantastic, smoothshock really is a hair product that lives up to what it says it does 😁 I was so impressed with the shine and softness of my hair after using this foam. There was also a wonderful effect of no frizz after I blow dried my hair. If you use smoothshock when your hair is damp before you blow dry you will feel a different in texture and your hair will be straighter, non frizzy and soft !

To get the look I had in the pictures I did use straightners after the blow dry but I had used smoothshock three times prior to this without using straightners and my hair was still more straight than usual. So it’s up to you how you would style your hair using this product, I know it’s called smoothshock food a reason but the fabulous effects can be used along with curling your hair or whatever you desired 😉


This product works 100 percent, as you can see the pictures don’t lie ☺

The only bone I need to pick with this product is that it didn’t specify how long you were to wait after applying the foam, I found that letting my damp hair sit for 5 minutes or so gave the best results !
