This Was How Kylie Stole the Latina Look

Kylie may strut her stuff like she invented fashion, but newsflash: Latinas have been rocking her style since the 90s. She’s taken more than a leaf out of the Latina style book.

Starting with the obvious, the dark lips…

Girl, please. Those famous lips are about as original as they are real. Dark lips with heavy liner has been a signature Latina look for decades.

Even Salma rocked those decades ago.

5 Hair Care Products And Routines For Healthier Locs

5 Hair Care Products And Routines For Healthier Locs

We’re not quite out of the woods when it comes to the dry air of winter, but with summer rays ahead, there’s no doubt it’s time to keep a lookout for strands. With the threat of the sun’s heat damage just around the corner, we’re concentrating on products and styles that will be the ultimate saving grace when it comes to no breakage and frizzies.

Women on Reddit have been sharing their favorite products, below!

Check them out!

“I love reading what other people do for their hair and taking inspiration (so far I’ve found a great hairspray based on a post in redpillwomen sub) for products, techniques and such. I hope you don’t mind sharing your routine-be as detailed as you like!

Mine : My hair is long (waist, but a good bit below hip length when wet), curly and medium thickness. I also have somewhat problematic and oily scalp. So the longest I go between washes is 3-4 days. By this time, my scalp is oily and my length needs the moisture. But, if I cannot for some reason wash the whole length, I braid it and do a scalp only wash.

In the shower after shampooing my roots, I finger detangle my hair with lots and lots of conditioner, rinse, then add conditioner again and fingercomb through again (this eases out all the knots) and rinse. Afterwards I apply leave-in mixed with some water, maybe a serum and gel or mousse. I typically airdry or blowdry. I have a diffuser but I don’t like using it so much as I feel like it makes my ends split more. I have long bangs, so those I straighten.

Whenever I feel like my hair is getting a bit frizzy, I re-wet it slightly with my palms and reapply my leave-in products. I brush the roots and bangs everyday since they are quite straight, but other than that, the most detangling between washes is gentle fingercombing to separate curls while dry, or when I’m dampening my hair in the morning I might gently fingercomb out some knots. The bangs and roots I like to blast with some hairspray to give some volume and hold.

I don’t use heat on the length (besides blowdrier) and I also don’t dye anymore, as I want to grow my hair even longer. I trim it myself when the ends need it.

Occasionally, I might do a deep treatment. I used to have a schedule, but I fell off it. Need to get back to it!

(This is my first time making a post here, so sorry if I did something wrong!)”- u/deathbypurple

“Hair background: I’m not sure if I have thick hair, or just a lot of it, but the volume is not lacking! It’s got a mind of its own as far as texture – sometimes more wavy, sometimes more straight, sometimes even straight up curly. Length – mid-back to low-back, depending on whether I needed a big chunk of dead ends chopped off. Dyed religiously because prematurely gray is not my style. :'( Because of this dying, my hair is crazy dry. And I live in a really humid climate.

Products!

  • Olaplex No. 3 – I use this pre-shampoo/condition about twice a month. Truly a hair saver. If I could only own a single hair product, it would be this! Makes my “hay” hair soft again, and tones down the tangles.
  • Oribe Royal Blowout – this is a heat styling spray that I use if I’m going to blow dry or use heat styling. Smells amazeballs!
  • Oribe Anti-Humidity spray – To be honest, I don’t know how much this helps, but it makes me feel better about walking out into 90% humidity after I just finished styling my hair. Also, smells amazeballs. 🙂
  • Deva Curl Low Poo – One of the shampoos I alternate between. I don’t use it for the curls/waves so much as I do for the gentle formula and softness it brings out in my hair. Does NOT smell amazeballs, haha.
  • ION Purify shampoo – This is the other shampoo I alternate between. We have extremely hard water (I’ve also gotten a shower head filter, but still hard) and the build up needs washed out. Supposed to be good for after swimming in chlorine too. My hair feels weird after rinsing it out, like it’s dying for the conditioner, but feels SUPER soft after conditioning and drying.
  • Deva Curl Conditioner – One of the many conditioners I alternate between. This is one that I usually use after the Deva Curl shampoo. Smells weird, but softer hair, so I tolerate it.
  • Argan Conditioning Mask – Another conditioner I alternate with. I use the heavy duty conditioners/masks once a week because of the dry texture of my hair. This one is a holy grail hair mask! Smells soooooo good and hair is like silk…or as close as it can get after dying every 6-8 weeks for over 7 years!
  • It’s a 10 Hair Mask – I definitely like this hair mask, just not as much as the Argan one. Smells great – nicely conditions.
  • Oribe Glaze – I use this halfway between my hair colorings. It’s supposed to help bring the shine back like right after you get your hair dyed. I don’t like how it makes my scalp feel after using it…kinda greasy/build-up-y feeling, so that’s why I use it so sparingly. Plus it is heavily perfumed, and while I like it, I have eczema so I’m cautious about what washes down my body in the shower.”- sthutton

“Wow, thanks for taking the time to write such a thorough routine, I really enjoyed reading about all the products 😀 🙂

I totally agree with you on the heatstyling – there is only so much you can achieve on hair without heat. Unfortunately, for me the choice would be either short and heatstyled, or long and naturally curly with all it’s imperfections, as my hair takes heat really badly. I still can feel the damage from straightening some front pieces for my prom haha 😀 And my bangs split like crazy.

Aside from that, and maybe it’s just a lie I tell myself, but I feel like my long curls are a kind of my special trademark feature, something that sets me apart from other women (but I also know it’s a big turn off for some men). I could fight against it with heat styling tools and chemicals, or work with it by trying to make what I naturally have look it’s best.”- deathbypurple

“I co-wash once or twice a week, apply leave in conditioner while my hair is soaking wet and wrap it up in a microfiber head towel. I keep product use as low as I can to extend my time between washes (I hate product build up!) and use whatever generic curl creme I can find on sale to reduce the frizz factor. I never use heat on my hair, so I hope that helps keep it healthy and damage free.

I’m looking forward to my next hair cut, I could really use a trim and maybe some style or layers cut in.”- UnconventionalFemme

“Hi there, I have really thick hair with a light wave, so I need to get it thinned all the time. I get blonde highlights so it can be quite dry. I hate washing and drying it because I’m a mum and ain’t no one got time for that. So I’m maybe twice a week (max) and occasionally once per week. Eek! Dry shampoo is a godsend for mum’s. And the bun trend. Yay. I use a moisturizing shampoo and mask, a smoothing product and just dry it off before bed. Then the next day if I wake up before my toddler I’ll get to straighten it.

I’ve just had a big chop and got a ‘lob’ haircut, which is fun. When my sister (hairdresser) has time she is going to super blonde it and put in a ash blonde toner which will be interesting.”- MrsRobertshaw

Quarantining Has Chicas Subscribing To Club No-Shave And Are You About It Too?

Quarantining Has Chicas Subscribing To Club No-Shave And Are You About It Too?

No doubt the process of hair removal can be a pain in the hiney but when it comes to Latinas, these perils can get a little hairier.

Particularly becomes when it comes to being left to our own devices to remove hair in quarantine things just get worse. Sure, many of us are able to shave our legs on our own but what about the other parts of our bodies that might need a little more waxing and help? Turns out, plenty of Latinas are ditching their razors in quarantine and opting to let their follicles have free reign.

(Mind you, this is all despite the fact that as young Latinas we spent most of adolescence begging our mamas to let us shave.)

With this in mind, of course, we had to ask our FIERCE audience how they’ve been managing their body hair in quarantine.

The answers? They’ll make you want to whip your hair back and forth.

Check them out below!

This chica is saving her shaves only for her public appearances.

“I shave only when my legs are going to be exposed, in public. If I’m not going anywhere or if I’m wearing leggings, I’m not shaving.” –elymora7

This chica committed to not giving others a chance to voice an opinion about her body.

“No shave! And nobody gets to have an opinion about it!” –abejita.bee

This lucky chica who is permanently no longer a peach.

“is there a club I got laser and now I don’t shave?” – andreasnexttrack

Im club shave cuando me da la gana.” –daphneparchmont

“I do what I feel like…sometimes I like the feeling of my leg hair blowing in the wind. Other times I like to feel the cool sheets on my freshly shaven legs. You never what you’re going to get with me.” – likekatiebutwithanh

This chica working out her urges on her legs.

“I started Shaving my legs so I wouldn’t cut my own bangs.” – pancakemakeoutparty

“I gotta shave even though Nobody sees me lol. I like to feel my smooth legs. lol.” – sinnistixI

“It’s there a club “I’m a Mom and don’t have time and don’t know what the heck is going on cuz I can’t see past my bellybutton” cuz if like to join that one.” –heytymari

“Club shave every other week.” – priscila_the_engineer
