MacGyver HAIR TIPS!

May I present to you:
Kandee's Hair Tips
QUESTION: "Do you have a license to carry that curling iron?"
ANSWER: why yes I do, Not only am I a professional make-up artist...I am a licensed cosmetologist too! ha ha ha ha (you must read that in an official sounding voice! ha ha)

So I'm gonna share one of my favorite "Macgyver-esque" hair tricks!

HOW TO FIND A HAIRSTYLING PRODUCT IN YOUR BATHROOM OR PURSE that's super cheap!
Good old hand creme!


WHAT?!? you say!
WON'T it make my hair greasy?: NOPE, there's usually more waxy, greasy, oily ingredients in hair products that are used to smooth hair.

Can I use lotion? If you want to use it as a smoothing cream to add shine, a creme is better, lotion tends to be more watery.

Now let's get down to hair business! Hair fabulousness in 3....2....1

hope all your hairs want to work together and look nice today! hee hee...your kandee

I have super curly frizzy hair. I have always used hand cream and/or lotion when I am in a pinch!! Thanks for sharing!! (Blake thought last nights video was fast...WOW!!!) Hhahah!!!

Persida87 said...

Oh my goodness Kandee! Blaker looks just like you when you were little!!! (I've been a huge fan of yours since before you stopped posting pictures of him...that's how I remember!) :)
Love you and thank you so much for your makeup/hair/life/fashion/etc. videos!

P.S. I really hope that you will reconsider your decision to stop doing Glaminars! Take 2 or 3 years off but don't stop altogether!!! :)

Kate Curtis said...

Hi Kandee, I fully plan on trying this out tomorrow.

So, if you need any video ideas, which you probably don't, I was wondering if you could help me out!! Summer is over and I am losing my tan FAST! I am trying to keep a healthy tan glow, but I am worried about looking over done. How can I keep the glow with make up with out looking like i drown in bronzer?

Thanks!
Kate

Kandee~ I have been doing this for a long time! I have to smile because when I was in hair school I was scolded by my instructor for telling a young gentlemen in high school that wanted to add some "texture" to his hair to use a small bit of vaseline... And I mean just enough to coat his tips of his fingers. It gives the same look as the old school Tigi bed head stick. I also said use beeswax as in burts bees wax tovadd some piecey texture mwssy shaggy look.... Ahhhh you are wonderful, Kandee!!! I am going to send this video to my teacher and show her that I am not really that odd. I was just trying to be sensitive to someone, a young kid who did not have that kind of money to spend in high school...and neither did his mom. Not to mention it was something my hair stylist had told me when I was younger with a cute little pixie cut... I still use lotion and cream on my ends to smooth them and sunscreen in my hair when out in the sun to protect my color. Thank you a s always. You're simply a delight to admire and look up to !

Emily Anne said...

awww you are so cute and you look the same! nice tip, but won't the wax attract things to stick to it? does this hold down flyaways? i wonder if lip salve would work the same, and yes fast tips are great!

siklen said...

Thank you so much for this tip!! I just wanted to tell you that I love your make-up (eyes, cheeks and lips) in the video you made on the 16th of November: "Fall make-up with my Mom". Could you please make this makeup video: It's so pretty and I love it so much!!!
A big kiss

Hi Kandee, love your work!
I have a question; do you have any tips on how to prevent your hair from getting static in the winter? It drives me nuts, sticking on my face and getting al tangled up...I'm sure i'm not the only girl who has issues with this..

I hope you have tips!

Tropical Mind said...

I have been doing this since I was in high school and I'm 32! It's a great tip -y'all don't be scared to try it! I usually apply the cream to my hands (I'd be doing that anyway) and then once it's rubbed in I lightly run my hands over my hair to smooth flyaways. Works like a charm!

Hi Kandee!

I love, love, loovvvee your videos! You have an amazing talent! Could you please do a detailed video on contouring the face? I love watching you share contouring techniques but am unsure of what products to use to achieve these looks.

Keep the videos coming! And good luck with your baby girl!

Hi. I was suffering from hair loss. After then I started using all the hair prevent formula since I was in college and when I started using herbal I smoothly run my hands over my hair to fly away. Wonderful!
