4 Tips for growing your hair out

About two years ago, I got a horrendous razor cut. I mean... chopped off. 
Borderline mullet. Layers up to my eyes! AWFUL. It was not at all what I 
wanted and I was pretty devastated. So ever since then, I've been relentlessly 
trying to grow it all out. Now, experiencing all this and being in the hair business
myself...I've learned a thing or two about a thing or two. So I wanted to share
   with you a few tips and tricks I've learned to growing your hair out.

#1.) Use a good, moisturizing or damage-repair conditioner. 
       I'm partial to KMS CA Moist Repair conditioner. One trick I know is after shampooing
       and using this conditioner, I rinse it out then coat JUST my ends with the 
       same conditioner and leave it in. It detangles and softens my ends without
       having to buy that extra hair product! And since it's not on my roots, it doesn't 
       weigh my hair down or get greasy.

#2.) Put your guns down!...Or at least use them sparingly.
       Blow dryers, flat irons, curling irons....They're all master manipulators of hair, 
          but they can do quite a bit of damage if you use them every day. So at 
          least every OTHER day put the tools down, give your hair a break, and embrace
          your natural texture!

#3.) Take vitamins and use style-prep products DAILY.
        Vitamins rich in E and biotin promote healthy, fuller, and shinier hair as it 
        grows. And products like CHI keratin mist and Biosilk provide hair with strength
        and softness. 


#4.) Schedule routine hair trimming appointments.
       Nothing gets rid of the split ends that you already have. They have to be cut off.
       So be sure to book an appointment at least every 6-8 weeks. The longer you
       wait, the more your hair can split and break off... which takes you back to
       square one.

wedding photographer, Mary Meghan Mabus. The pictures, as you saw 
some before, turned out amazing so I just had to show more...

Our Wedding!

       As much as I wanted to post every single picture on here, there's just 
waaayyyyy too many so I settled on these. This really was my dream wedding. 
I couldn't have imagined anything better.. every detail was perfect and 
exactly what I wanted. We spent the entire week before setting everything up.
It was A LOT of work but totally worth it. And just like everyone said it would 
be, it went by so fast it was all a big blur. I didn't get to enjoy any of the 
amazing-looking food David made and I don't even know who all came to the wedding! 
       I chose to keep the tradition of not letting Cody see me until I walked down 
the aisle, so we had to take most of the wedding party/family photos during 
the reception. Nonetheless, we had a blast and enjoyed every second we 
could soak in. I'm beyond thankful for everyone involved in the wedding and 
behind the scenes. It never would have been so perfect without all of them.
       Our honeymoon to a resort in Mexico was a blast...and very interesting to 
say the least. I don't recommend any tourists trying to drive around in downtown 
Cancun. You might die. And sprinting the length of the Miami airport like you're 
in a movie does not guarantee you'll make it to your connecting flight. Sometimes
they decide they want to take off early and leave you behind.
       So far though, married life has been the best! We've been really busy this
week trying to settle into our new home. It's finally starting to come together 
though and I couldn't be happier!
