Are you curious which air drying hair products actually work to give you frizz-free hair this summer? Read on for 7 products you'll love.

Air dried hair is all the rage right now. Bringing out natural hair has been seen on runways constantly this spring and summer, and for good reason. Summertime can be a nightmare for hair styling, especially if you live in a state that has 100% humidity almost all the time (me).

Curling, straightening, or blow drying rarely lasts long in the summer heat and can make hair damage and frizz from the heat a lot worse. In times like these, air drying is the only solution. So how can you get frizz-free and gorgeous hair without heat styling? These products can help. 

7 Air Drying Hair Products for Frizz-Free Hair This Summer

Sea salt is used in many hair products to create effortless, soft waves. To use this sea salt spray, just spray it throughout your roots after washing your hair and wrap it in a towel. After, scrunch the ends, and you’ll have gorgeous, frizz-free waves! 

This lightweight, easy to use cream from Bumble and Bumble easily transforms hair from frizzy to soft and has a light fresh scent. Just towel dry your hair and scrunch the cream in for lightweight, pretty waves.  

Because I have dyed hair, I’ve used this stuff for years and am amazed every single time. This leave-in conditioner is perfect for normal to fine hair. It smooths out frizz, adds shine, and even protects colored treated hair from the heat. You’ll be left with soft, pretty, protected hair! 

This product is actually a foam that is great for controlling natural waves and curls, and bringing out hair’s natural texture without weighing it down or leaving it sticky, like most mousses and foams. Great for naturally curly or wavy hair. It even has air-drying in the name! 

This serum is a lifesaver for fine, frizzy hair. It controls split ends and frizz without weighing hair down or leaving it oily and greasy. It also gives hair a boost of moisture and leaves hair stronger! The best part: it’s only $5. 

This lightweight hair gel has no alcohol, parabens, gluten, or colorant. It lightly holds style, moisturizes hair and protects against humidity. Bonus: it has a light fruity scent! 

7) Biosilk Silk Therapy Oil, $13.99 

This oil is perfect for medium to thick hair. It tames frizz, strengthens hair with vitamin B, E, and proteins, and leaves hair soft, silky, and smelling absolutely wonderful.   

These air drying hair products should prepare your hair for the summer heat (or humidity) and leave it gorgeous long after! And be sure to read this post on no-heat hairstyles for some great ideas.

Why I Decided To Let An App Dress Me, Rather Than Wear A Uniform

Have you heard of Cladwell, the iOs app that sends you professionally styled outfit recommendations to your phone everyday? Not only does it give you outfit recommendations, but these outfits are based on the clothes already in your closet and that day’s weather. If you’re tired of apps and fashion start-ups that are always trying to get you to buy new clothes, just so you can (hopefully) have a “well-rounded and on trend wardrobe”, then this app is for you.

Why I decided to let an app dress me, rather than wear a uniform - A response piece from Cladwell CMO Erin.

The piece below is a response article from Cladwell CMO Erin, to the viral Harper’s Bazaar article “Why I Wear The Exact Same Thing to Work Everyday”.

Why I Decided To Let An App Dress Me, Rather Than Wear A Uniform

Cladwell LogoAround a year ago, I rolled out of bed, opened my closet, began throwing my clothes on the floor and proceeded to try on every outfit I owned. To be honest, this was just a normal start to the day. I’m the CMO of Cladwell, a top fashion startup so you would think getting dressed wouldn’t be an issue. But I still struggled figuring out what to wear each morning. Is this outfit still cool? Is this comfortable enough? Will I be cold? Can I wear these things together? 45 minutes later, my room looked as if a tornado had touched down, and I was racing out the door, already regretting the outfit I had chosen.

By the time I arrived at work (late again), I was counting the hours until I could go home and put my sweatpants back on. I’d read those articles about how Mark Zuckerberg and Steve Jobs wore the same thing to work everyday. The “work uniform” began to sound dangerously tempting. But, no matter how destroyed my room looked or how much I hated my outfit, the idea of a daily uniform felt restrictive and just not really like me at all. After all, I still wanted to look stylish. I just didn’t want to think about it.

Why I decided to let an app dress me, rather than wear a uniform - A response piece from Cladwell CMO Erin.

Have you ever ordered the exact same thing at a restaurant just because there were too many options on the menu to choose from? That’s how I felt about my closet. I knew I had a problem, but I couldn’t shop my way out of it. Trust me, I had tried. And 450 items later, it didn’t help. As I began to talk more about my styling problems at work, our team actually set out to solve my problem. We weren’t entirely sure how we were going to do this, but 4 months later, the solution came in the form of downloading an app. That was it.

I didn’t buy any new items or have to go on a shopping spree. In fact, I simply opened the app and tapped my finger on around 50 or so clothing items that looked similar to the ones I owned.

Why I decided to let an app dress me, rather than wear a uniform - A response piece from Cladwell CMO Erin.

Then, each day I was sent three personally styled outfits from my very own closet. On the days that I already had a favorite item on my mind, I could go into the app and view all the possible outfits this item could create within my closet. Suddenly, I had one less thing to do every morning. I no longer spent countless hours worrying about what to wear. And I definitely wasn’t late for work anymore.

To be honest, I was skeptical at first. Could using an app, practically a robot, make me feel any different? Surprisingly, yes.

My friends had a lot questions when I started telling them about the app before we publicly launched. Immediately, they assumed I was forced to use the app. I get it. But, trust me, I didn’t use it because I worked for Cladwell. I used it because Cladwell was quite literally built for me, in hopes there were other women out there facing the same demonic closet.

By far the most common question I still get, is does it really work? Can technology actually dress you? To which my answer is, “Have you ever wanted to have a personal stylist?” It’s not technology that made up the outfit suggestions; it’s the real live stylists behind the app. The technology just helped bring these outfits to millions of people instead of a single person who can afford to hire Rachel Zoe.

Why I decided to let an app dress me, rather than wear a uniform - A response piece from Cladwell CMO Erin.

Our closets are full of clothes that we no longer (or never did) like. The truth is, all that clutter is there for a reason. We are all encouraged on a regular basis to buy this, buy that, buy this for that cheap price. Whether we consciously know it or not, this increasingly fast sales cycle has an impact on us. It creates clutter in homes, hearts, and minds. I used to only wear around 20% of my clothing. Pretty much the same outfits, over and over. Now, in the app, I can track to see if I’m wearing 100% of the clothes in my closet. If I find that after 60 days I’m not wearing a certain item, I donate it. Gone are the days of impulse-buys that still have the tag.

It’s my style, my clothes, my time back. The best part is that I no longer to have to worry about creating outfits, I just get to choose them. There’s freedom in that. Having an app dress me is a daily reminder that I am in control of my closet. Not the other way around.

How to Wash Your Face: The Best Cleansing Cloth with 4-in-1 Cleansing Power

Exfoliators, face wash, face scrubs, and toners are all recommended for a healthy skin care routine, but using them every night can be time-consuming. Instead, try using a powerful face wash product with 4-in-1 cleansing power for beautiful skin. You’ll thank me!

I haven’t talked about it a lot here on Mom Fabulous, but I’m currently on a year-long trip around the U.S. and Canada with my family. Seeing as much of the U.S. and Canada as possible has been a dream of ours for quite some time, so we finally went for it.

How to Wash Your Face: A Facial Cleanser with 4-in-1 Cleansing Power

Pairing Down My Beauty Routine

Constantly traveling meant pairing down my skin care routine a lot. I couldn’t and didn’t want to bring bottles and bottles of products with me, so when Olay reached out asking if I’d like to partner with them and try Olay Daily Facials Daily Clean 4-In-1 Water Activated Cleansing Cloths, I was all in. I’ve been using their moisturizer with SPF for longer than I can remember!

Here’s how my skin care routine used to go:

  • Remove makeup with a wipe
  • Wash face with a cleanser
  • Remove mascara residue with a wipe
  • Exfoliate a few times a week
  • Use a toner
  • Moisturize
  • Apply an eye cream

That’s a lot of steps and products!

I’ve used makeup wipes for years to remove that pesky mascara and foundation that tends to linger even after cleansing with a wash. But I’m not always happy with the way my skin feels afterward. I have dry skin, so a tight feeling to me means stripping my face of oils my skin desperately needs. I also know that tugging on my skin to get the wipes to really break up the makeup isn’t good.

Exfoliators, face wash, face scrubs, and toners are all recommended for a healthy skin care routine, but using them every night can be time-consuming. Instead, try using a powerful face wash product with 4-in-1 cleansing power for beautiful skin. You'll thank me!

Benefits of Olay Daily Facials

So, I put the Olay Daily Facials to the test to see if the 4-in-1 cleansing power is truly effective.

What do I think? Well, not to get dramatic or anything but if I had access to a mountaintop to scream about my love for this product I would. I stocked up and bought 4 boxes and my 19-year-old daughter has started using them as well. She loves them as much as I do!

Here’s why I love Olay Daily Facials so much:

  • It’s easy to use – just add water to lather
  • I’m getting the benefits of a cleanser, toner, mask and scrub all in one product and all at the same time
  • My skin is very clean afterward
  • Mascara residue? Gone
  • My skin feels clean and moisturized after using

Exfoliators, face wash, face scrubs, and toners are all recommended for a healthy skin care routine, but using them every night can be time-consuming. Instead, try using a powerful face wash product with 4-in-1 cleansing power for beautiful skin. You'll thank me!

Instead, try using a powerful face wash product with 4-in-1 cleansing power for beautiful skin. You'll thank me!

How do they work?

Olay Daily Facials Daily Clean 4-in-1 Water Activated Cleansing Cloths are specially textured with soft cleansing pockets that will gently break up and lift away dirt, oil, and makeup. Yes, even mascara! By using these, you get a clean that is two times better than basic cleansing. The result? Skin that’s gently exfoliated and smoother in texture in less than one week.

I’m proof it does what it says. Keep reading…

The No Makeup Trend

Another amazing benefit I’ve noticed is an improvement in the tone and texture of my skin. For years I’ve suffered from quite a bit of redness on my cheeks and dry spots, which caused me to always want to wear makeup. Which I did. When a member of my family got away with snapping a picture of me without makeup, I quickly asked them to delete it and to please not post it.

You may have heard about the no makeup trend celebrities, bloggers and other well-known women have embraced. I watched Alicia Keys on ‘The Voice’ sport gorgeous outfits and hairstyles, all while not wearing a stitch of makeup. At the time, two things came to mind: she’s beautiful and that must work for her because of her access to any skin care product she wants.

I finally saw the beauty in this trend and have been embracing it quite a bit lately. What changed? This picture my son took of me the other day while on a hike.

I put a flower in my hair that my youngest son picked for me and I was standing there, my other son asked me to be still while he took my picture. This is me with no makeup on whatsoever. And my family thought I looked beautiful. He asked if he could post it and I actually said yes.

Sure, I personally saw a few flaws I didn’t particularly like, but I also saw two other things: that I was completely relaxed in my skin and that my skin is changing. It feels good to see the redness and dryness disappear. It also feels amazing to let go of the need to always have makeup on.

Using the Olay Daily Facials for a couple of weeks was my step 1 to embracing the no makeup trend. My skin is the healthiest it’s ever been. Step 2 was seeing the beauty in it through the eyes of my family.

How to Use Olay Daily Facials

How to Start a Bullet Journal: A Simple Beginner’s Guide

*This is a guest post by Hello, It’s Hannah

Are you curious about how to start a bullet journal? If you love all things organization + getting creative, a bullet journal is a great way to tap into both of those things.

Are you curious about how to start a bullet journal? If you love all things organization + getting creative, a bullet journal is a great way to tap into both of those things.One of my favorite projects I’ve tackled this summer is creating a bullet journal. For those of you who aren’t sure what a bullet journal is, it’s basically a notebook you tailor to your specific needs. The possibilities are literally endless. You can make a planner, a diary or journal, a book dedicated to lists, a food log, an exercise log, anything. There are hundreds of different layouts, lists, and diagrams you can choose from to tailor to your life.

However, you don’t have to start out with those intricate and detailed layouts you see all over Pinterest. A simple one is just fine. When you feel confident in your bullet journal abilities, then you can move on to the detailed outlines.

Today, I’ll show you how to create a simple bullet journal layout, and all the supplies you need to begin your journey.

How to Start a Bullet Journal: A Simple Beginner’s Guide 

1) Supplies 

To start your bullet journal, you need a few things: 

  • A notebook. Any notebook will do. Lines, no lines, squares, you get to decide. 

  • A black pen. This is for the outline itself. However, you can start with pencil if you would like to and just trace over it with pen. 

  • A ruler. Have to have straight lines! Or you can purchase a template set to help with drawing straight lines and designs.

  • Pens or colored pencils. Just in case you want to decorate your outlines a little bit, have some coloring tools on hand 

2) Beginning 

Before diving into the outline, the first thing you want to do in your bullet journal is open to the first spread of blank pages. These two pages will serve as your index. As you add pages to your journal, you will put the name of the page and the number in your index.

Nothing is consecutive, and you don’t have to save or skip sections. As you add a page, add it to your Index so you can easily find the pages you’re looking for. Go ahead and number the two pages of your Index 1 and 2, and add those to your index.  

Are you curious about how to start a bullet journal? If you love all things organization + getting creative, a bullet journal is a great way to tap into both of those things.

3) The Key 

To make your notes more organized, come up with a set of symbols that you can put next to each task or note. Here’s the one I use:

This is so you don’t forget what tasks you’ve started and which ones you haven’t, as well as which tasks are the most important and need to be done ASAP. 

4) Month 

For me, the best way to organize my daily tasks is to do a page per day, and have different sections for each category of tasks. Here’s one of my bullet journal entries:

5) Lists 

Tasks and to do’s aren’t the only thing you can use a bullet journal for. Feel free to put in lists, too! For example, you can put in a list of books you want to read, movies you want to see, a page of favorite quotes, anything. Don’t forget to number the pages and put them in your index! 

Here’s one of my lists. It’s my yoga routine for the month of June. 

Are you curious about how to start a bullet journal? If you love all things organization + getting creative, a bullet journal is a great way to tap into both of those things.

And there you have it! How to start a bullet journal the simple way.

Ingenious Ways to Keep Your Tote Bag Organized

Whether you’re headed out for a day of travel or to the pool with the kids for the afternoon, these ingenious ways to keep your tote bag organized will help curb the chaos. 

Whether you're headed out for a day of travel or to the pool with the kids for the afternoon, these ingenious ways to keep your tote bag organized will help curb the chaos. My article about packing the perfect purse for a day of travel has become one of the most popular features on Mom Fabulous. Which tells me you all love keeping your purse organized (or at least trying really, really hard) as much as I do. My tote bag definitely gets out of hand, but it doesn’t take much to whip it back into shape because of a system I started using years ago.

I’ve been using the pouch system for over 10 years after reading about it in an organizing book. I bought small pouches (similar to these) and they hold all of those small items that get lost at the bottom of my bag. Items like lipgloss, chapstick, bandaids, and pens are all easy to find since they’re stored in separate pouches. It’s a system that’s been working well and one I plan on sticking with for awhile.

Here are some tips and products that help keep your tote bag nice and organized. Including my personal system. Happy organizing!

Ingenious Ways to Keep Your Tote Bag Organized

The Pouch System

This system has been working for me for years. It makes it easy to find things, plus it makes it easy to switch out handbags. Here’s what I keep in each pouch:

  • Makeup
  • Emergency kit: bandaids, Tide to Go Pen, hand sanitizer, medicines
  • Snacks: granola bars and nuts

The only loose things in my tote are my wallet, phone, and sunglasses. And even those go in a pocket if my tote has one.

The Tote Insert

If you have a tote you love and it has absolutely no pockets, you can either use the pouch system above or purchase a handy dandy tote bag insert.

Periea Handbag Organizer - the perfect way to keep your totes and handbags organized.

The Periea Handbag Organizer comes in 18 colors and 3 different sizes. It also has a total of 13 inner & outer compartments, including 2 large zipped compartments. It’s also machine washable.

This brand is known for its great quality and affordability.

By using an organizer insert, everything has a place. Which means no more bottomless pit of random items!

Use an Envelope for Receipts & Random Papers

Receipts and random papers are a tote bag’s worst nightmare. The easiest way to take care of this problem is by carrying around an envelope or a pouch like this one, to store all of the loose papers in. When it’s time to clean it out, you can easily go through it, throwing away what you don’t need and filing away what you need to keep.

Do a Once a Week Clean Out

When it all comes down to it, no matter how great your organizing system for your tote bag is, it will still most likely need a once a week clean out. This will give you the chance to do something with the papers you’ve collected, as well as replenish any snacks or other supplies you need.

Do you have any ingenious ways to keep a tote bag organized?

Whether you're headed out for a day of travel or to the pool with the kids for the afternoon, these ingenious ways to keep your tote bag organized will help curb the chaos.
