SEE: Brazilian women are BURNING their hair to make it healthier!

If you know me well (or have read any of my curly hair stories), you know that I've been slowly trying to recover from extreme heat damage. What's heat damage? It's basically when heat-styling tools take a toll on your hair, leaving it dry and messing up your natural curl pattern. I don't go near a blow dryer without first applying a heat-protective spray throughout my damp hair, I keep the settings low and I sure as hell don't use flat irons (or even curling irons) anymore. So when I heard that Brazilian supermodel Barbara Fialho has her heir hair burned with open flames (yes BURNED) to make it "healthier," I flipped out. That sounds like BS to me!

Men are getting plastic surgery for the LAST place you'd expect


Women tend to be behind the terrible beauty trends we see nowadays, but I knew it was only a matter of time until men caught on and found their own thing to obsess about. Which brings me to a new procedure called Male Bikini Laser treatment or "ball ironing".

7 Tips para que evites infecciones al hacerte la pedicure en un salón de belleza

Me encanta mi visita al salón, especialmente para arreglarme los pies. Es mi momento de apapacho, de consentirme y además mantener mis pies presentables. Confieso que la parte que más disfruto es ese masajito que me dan después del pedicure, creo que las manos de mi pedicurista son perfectas para el relajamiento.  

Aunque hace unos días note que una señora sentada a mi lado tenía varias uñas llenas de hongos, y no pude evitar pensar que tal vez la bacteria la contrajo del salón, y peor aún, que tal si más adelante me harían la pedicure con los mismos instrumentos que estaban utilizando en ella…¡nooo!

Lace-front eyebrows are crazy & creepy!

Christina Milian's journey from heat-damaged hair to bouncy curls

Has anyone else ever wondered what the heck happened to Christina Milian's gorgeous curly hair? The girl used to have the prettiest, bounciest curls back during her Love Don't Cost a Thing days. But I guess with all the heat styling, hair coloring and extension-wearing, her rizos just haven't been the same. And it looks like she's on mission to get them back because Christina recently got her hair chopped (just look at this pic) by curl expert Shai Amiel who has been helping her nurture her curls back to health. Did I mention she hasn't straightened her hair ONCE since?
