Gisell's Top 4 Quick Styles Picks for any Special Event

Is your life crazy? With work, school or just the daily norms can be hectic for some. What do you do when you only have few minutes to get your hair ready before that special event you just remembered that you must attend?? Not go? OH NO! Not that. We must go and look fabulous. I know what you are thinking. Omg! I have to do my hair but I don't know how. Here's Gisell to the rescue lol. I picked 4 quick styles that it's quick and take literally less than five minutes...if that! 
First, the BUN:
1. Pull all hair back and secure with a band.
2. twist the rest of the hair around the band and tuck in. No need of a suck bun. Natural makes a perfect up do. You can use bobby pins if needed. Use acessories such as earrings and do your makeup. That's it, from rushed to elegance.

Low Side Ponytail:
1. With curling around waves already done you can pull your to one side and secure with a band.
2. with bobby pins start pinning your waves around your pony tail like a donut.
3. Some ends can be loose, smooth your bangs if any and you are ready to party!

Pony Tail with a Twist:
1. Choose a high, side or low pony tail style you prefer.
2. You can twist starting from the side all the way back or just twist sides only and holding the rest of the hair with a band. Securing the twist as you go.
This is really all. It is very simple and so versatile with the twists.

I know not everyone can braid but this can be a quick, simple and elegant style.
1. If you know how then start braiding
2. Either you can tuck the braid in or leave the rest and hold with a band like a pony tail. Thats all!
Yes, so simple and quick.

I hope you like my post and Happy Holidays.

DIY at home: Getting rid of Artificial Hair Dye...


 Make sure you have at least two hours to spare at home if you are doing this.
This isn't supposed to lighten your natural hair color if that's what you're looking for. It may lighten it a little bit, but it's not what it's meant for. This is for removing hair artificial dye color.


Vitamin C tablets. I purchased mine at dollar general stores for only $3.00.

Shampoo (Clarifying shampoo works best, but if you don't have, use head and shoulders even Selsun Blue


1. Take some Vitamin C tablets and crush it up. I crushed up about 20 to 25 tablets. Judge according to the length of your hair. The tablets shouldn't be too hard to crush. I put them in a plastic bag and used the bottom of a small pot that I had to crush them. If you have a hammer, that works as well. After crushing them I put it in a little container and used the handle of a wooden spoon to crush the larger pieces so I would have a finer powder. The finer you can get it, the better.

2. Place the powder in a plastic bowl.
3. Add the shampoo in it and mix well.
4. Mix it all up. As soon as you start mixing it, a chemical reaction will occur, causing the mixture to lather and foam up.

5. Apply it to your damp hair like you would with shampoo. Lather it up and make sure all the hair is covered.

6. Pile hair on top of head and place a shower cap or a plastic bag over it.

7. Let it sit for about an hour.

9. Rinse, rinse, rinse. And shampoo. And condition.

10. Style as normal

11. If it did not lift all the color, or as much as you wanted to be lifted, wait a few days or a week,  and repeat the process. It may or may not lift all the color, depending on how recently you colored it and how many times you have done so.
If you have any tips on removing artificial color, post it below... I hope this helps.

DIY Home Humidifier for Congestion Relief

Maybe you know this information or maybe you do not. This is a great tip that I want to share with everyone. It is for adults and kids, basically anyone of any age. 

When you are sick and very congested it's very uncomfortable to breath, especially it's difficult at night. Many people use humidifiers but some can't afford it. I am tired of other people either not trying to use a humidifier or taking lots of over the counter medicine for their congestion, and not helping you at all.

You will do this and you will love it. I guarantee you!!!

You will buy vapor rub Vicks, candles and pour a small amount on a warmer. Yes you actually the the Vicks and you pour it on top like if it was wax.

While it starts warming it works exactly like a humidifier. Cool huh???? Don't believe me then try it.

For those who never heard about Vicks Medicine, Vicks VapoRub ointment is a mentholated topical cream manufactured by Vicks. VapoRub should only be used on the chest & throat for cough suppression due to the common cold. It is applied often immediately before sleeping. But if you are a Latino. VICKS is used for every and any medical problem lmao! 

Let me know what you think below. Thank you so much for reading and visiting my blog :)

How to Keep Skin Elasticity

Aging is part of life! Point blank and final! No turning back. As we age our skin begins to lose its elasticity, meaning the firmness and tightness look we love, starts to appear a little looser and saggier. Losing elasticity also results in the onset of wrinkles! Keeping skins elasticity is possible by making healthy choices, incorporating essential vitamins and minerals into your daily diet and giving your skin the nutrients it needs to aid in collagen production. Here are some tips you can start doing as of today :)

  • Most of my products have vitamin E in them. Vitamin E boosts antioxidant properties that help fight wrinkles and collagen loss.
  • Incorporate Vitamin C into your diet. Vitamin C is vital to your skins elasticity, providing a direct role in your body’s ability to produce collagen. It also helps with hydration, which keeps your skin moist and supple. I use Vitamin C Serum as well.
  • Use sunscreen every day! Sun protection is absolutely essential in the fight against aging skin.
  • Avoid smoking and excessive alcohol consumption. Keeping skin elasticity means making healthy life style choices! Beauty is from the inside out.
Do not forget water. Water is the number 1 best, beauty product there is. Please read my important post about H2O

Rushed in the Mornings? Some Hairstyle Ideas for Work

 I don’t know about you, but mornings are very rushed for me and the last thing I have time for a complicated hairstyle that take hours to do. I pulled some ideas from google to give you some inspiration next time your running late but still need your locks to look polished and put together.
I think a not so neat bun it is such a very put together look in a weird way. As long that the sides are neat the bun looks can be wearable with an elegant dress or a casual Friday. Go ahead and try it. I also love ponytails, I will repeat myself, on the second picture her hair is very neat on top and sides the rest is just a pony tail. :)
Another kind of pony tail is like the above pic. Sides and top are neat but this time have your full bangs out. Totally Chic! You can also wear your hair naturally down and just clips the sides and call it a day like the pic below. What do you think? If your hair is straight you can curl just the ends with a curling wand. This are just a few of my ideas for women who always in a rush but want to looks well put together. There's no need to look like a hot mess. You are judged first by your appearance so let's make a good sight!

My Top 4 Cold Weather Tips

Cold air, winds and indoor heat can really do a number on your skin. As soon as winter starts to sneak in, I feel the dryness settle in on my face, hands and especially my lips right away.  Adding moisture to your skincare for cold weather is an absolute must.

  • Reevaluate your skin care routines based on the season. As the seasons change, the needs of your skin will change too. This means changing products according to your skin needs.
  • Keep hot showers shorter. Hot water can really soak up your skin moisture.
  • Find the right moisturizer. For winter skin, look for something thick that will really provide deep moisture and good coverage.
  • Hydrate, Hydrate and Hydrate! I know I say this all the time with my posts, but in the dry winter air, hydration is more important than ever. Your skin is starving for it.

Do you have any cold weather skincare tips? Please let me know on the comment space below. :)

Women of Color

Skincare for women of color is a little different to care of than traditional skincare we often gossip about. Women with dark skin are actually more susceptible to ashy tones, sun and UV damage and even skin discoloration. Great hair and skin care includes choosing products that have good moisturizing qualities and sun protection for colored skin.

I recommend:

Hair: Mizani Hair Products:
Immerse your hair in a luxurious blend of pure oils at every step in the haircare process. These product line are filled with moisturizers. You’ll love your hair like never before.

Cosmetics and Skin Care:
There are so many amazing lines out there. I do like Iman Cosmetics they are filled also with  ingredients including Vitamins A, E, & C, essential oils, and antioxidants derived from plant & fruit extracts to optimize the overall health of your skin. This line is especially formulated for women of color.

Hope you enjoed this post. Please refer and follow me.

Thank you

Hot Oil Treatments

 I have tried coconut oil and it really works wonderfully. I have not tried the other oils but I will soon just to compare. These are oils so a little goes a long way. Make sure to wash your hair twice with shampoo to eliminate that greasy look. You can use these oils with a Scalp Treatment as well, I personally use deep conditioners. Please see pic below for a how to tutorial.
 *It is important for scalp massages, to have blood flowing on the scalp especially for MEN. It slows down hair loss.
 Please read another post on more information about the importance of SCALP CARE. Let me know your favorite Oil Products which I will try as well.
I want to thank everyone for the lovely comments on my posts. I really appreciated. Please refer and follow my blog. :)
