Verbing // With Verb

Hi guys! I am so excited to share with you all the newest line of products from VERB! You all know how much I love VERB, so I am thrilled to be working with them again. VERB just sent me this package filled with their new Ghost Collection, which is for people with fine hair or people who do not like feeling product in their hair (me!), or for people who wash their hair everyday. All of the products in this collection are vegan, paraben, sulfate, gluten, and cruelty free! The Moringa Oil blend is in each of the products to soften, shine, and de-frizz, everything I've ever wanted and more. ;) Every product is only 16$, which is amazing when you think about how good these products are, and additionally, you can now use Code: MONAMIXVERB for 16% off your purchase throughout the month of September! Shop the new collection here. I'm so excited for you all to try this collection, and I'll keep you posted with some luscious hair photos in the next few days! Until then, check out this unboxing video I did above!

Summer Essentials // VERB

It's finally summer down here in Austin, and thank goodness! I know it's been a quick minute since my last update on here (sorry guys), but to make it up to you all I'm doing a GIVEAWAY with VERB! I've partnered with VERB to bring one of you beautiful readers their newly released Sea Collection!

I've had the pleasure of using the Sea Collection for a little while now, and let me tell ya, this line has worked wonders for my curls. As I get older I find that my mane of curls is slowly falling. Don't get me wrong, I still have big curls and a ton of hair, but I used to have the most ridiculous ringlets and so much hair it would take two hours to get it cut, so recently I've felt a little more protective of my curls. Specifically, I've been having trouble keeping my curls bouncy especially as I grow out my pixie cut. Most days my curls fall after drying and I'm left with a wavy mop on my head. Not only has the VERB Sea Collection revived my curls, but it looks like my hair took a trip to the beach and came back healthier, more relaxed, and bouncier than ever. 

First, I use the Sea Shampoo and Sea Conditioner in my shower. I try to get all of that shampoo sudsy goodness deep into my roots, then I moisturize with the Sea Conditioner. After my shower, I always let my hair air-dry. I try and use as little heat as possible on my hair to keep it as healthy as possible. After my hair is dry, it feels soft, light, and breezy. 

Second, I lightly spray in the Sea Spray and scrunch up my hair to revive my falling curls. You can also section off your hair and curl individual pieces by twisting them through your fingers. I prefer to just scrunch my hair since I have naturally curly hair, but for my more wavy-hair friends sectioning and twisting your hair is probably a better idea.

Third, after letting the Sea Spray settle in, depending on how loose my curls look, I add in the Sea Texture Cream. I rub the cream on my palm until it reaches a clear consistency then lightly work it from tip to root, defining my curls as I go. I find that this last step helps my curls stay bouncy throughout the day. 

My favorite thing about the Sea Collection is how even though my curls look bouncy and full, my hair feels soft, beachy, and loose. I've never experienced crunchy hair or found clumps of product laying around, which a lot of products (especially for curly hair) can do. Be sure to check out my Instagram to enter into the GIVEAWAY! I'll be giving away the entire Sea Collection!
