Tired of having to fight frizzy curly hair? The Vintage Modern Wife has AMAZING tips that have really helped me! I don't have frizzy curly hair anymore!

Having curly hair in Texas is not exactly the best thing in the world. I lived by the Gulf Coast almost my entire life and dreaded days when the humidity was high. I would get frizzy curly hair and even was nicknamed “Simba” by my older sister because my hair resembled a lion’s mane. I tried so hard to straighten it, but in the early 2000’s, hair straightening was a new idea and flat irons were incredibly costly. I tried everything to fight frizzy curly hair, but in the end, Texas humidity always won. It was a tough battle, especially in high school, when looks seem to be everything. I really had to learn how to care for my frizzy curly hair, and I was able to transform it from Simba hair to Shirley Temple ringlets. I even had a friend that had frizzier hair than I did, and when I shared my secrets with her, her life literally changed all because of her hair and my tips. I won’t lie- I didn’t really want to share my tips with others when I was in high school. I felt like I had a big advantage over others with my smoothing techniques, but now I feel like it’s time to share what I know so I can help others feeling less beautiful about themselves. I want to help others fight frizzy curly hair with Suave Professionals so they can gain confidence back like I did and #LiveBeautifully.

Here’s how I fight frizzy curly hair with Suave Professionals:

I start out with Suave Professionals Sleek Conditioner (28 oz.) in the shower. What?! No shampoo? That’s right, no shampoo. When I have curly hair, for the day, the LAST thing I want is to dry my hair out with a shampoo. Generally, curly girls have more dry hair than straight-haired girls, so we can go without shampoo. I know it’s weird at first, but trust me. I use about a quarter size of conditioner (sometimes more because I have a ton of hair) and really scrub my roots and work the conditioner down to the ends of my hair. Then, while I’m still in the shower, I use a wide-toothed comb and detangle my hair. Let the conditioner sit 5 minutes, and rinse.

Before getting out of the shower, I crimp my hair with my hands and squeeze out as much water as possible. This is a VITAL step and wringing out your hair will completely mess up the process. Just cup your hair in your hands and gently squeeze, doing small sections at a time. You can also use an old t-shirt to help dry your hair in this same way if you need your hair dried faster. Then, I put on some Suave Professionals Keratin Heat Leave In Conditioner (5 oz.) to prep my hair and just give it extra conditioning for less frizzy curly hair.

Using about a dime to nickel size of Suave Professionals Sleek Anti-Frizz Cream (3.5 oz), you’ll want to rub your hands together and cup your curls as you put on the cream. You want to make sure you just don’t slap it onto your hair with the palm of your hands. Take the extra time to cup small sections of curls so your frizzy curly hair becomes no more.

Finally, I finish off my curls with Suave Professionals Volumizing Mousse (7.0 oz.). I like a lot of mousse, and my absolute FAVORITE thing about this mousse is that it doesn’t get crispy on me. There is nothing I hate more than curly hair that is crispy. Curls should be bouncy and soft, not weighed down and crispy. Rub the mousse in your hands, cup your hands onto your curls and scrunch up. Make sure you get the back of your hair really well. That’s the area of my hair that tends to give me frizzy curly hair the most, because my head rubs on chair backs during the day.

After I do my frizzy curly hair preventative routine, I let my hair air dry. I have never had luck with a diffuser because they always make my hair frizzy, so I just let my hair naturally air dry and I have perfect curls all day long. If I don’t have time to jump in the shower the next day (moms, I know you can relate!) I like to use Suave Professionals Moroccan Dry Shampoo (4.3 oz.)  to give my hair some oomph and then I use a 1/2 inch curling iron  to re-curl any pieces that got messed up while I slept and to give my hair a little touch up.

Mom Hair Monday: Two Minute Tuck

This two minute tuck tutorial is SO easy. It totally transforms my bad hair day to a flawless hairstyle! I love to do the two minute tuck on really busy days!

Another busy week in the Wolfe casa has passed and I’m so thankful to the Lord for allowing us to have such a great weekend! I was able to go to a Fresh Grounded Faith conference here in Waco for women around the town to attend, Mathew and I took Addie to the zoo, and we were able to spend some time with family of mine. It was a bit crazy but it was a lot of fun. I’m really starting to feel like we are able to do so much more with Addie now that she likes getting out of the house. I also sent out my very first newsletter this past Friday. I anticipate sending out a newsletter every Friday showcasing the posts that you may have missed throughout the week, giveaways that I’m having, a little Young Living stuff, and a Q&A session. I’ll be posting information on Facebook soon on how you can submit your questions, and I’m excited to see what you all want me to answer! This week on Mom Hair Monday, I’m going for a Two Minute Tuck hairstyle because it’s super fast but looks like you put in a ton of effort. We don’t have any plans for the beginning of the week, but I still want to make sure my hair looks fab without doing too much to it.

Remember: The goal of Mom Hair Monday? To give you a cute, functional hairstyle that will take you from drab to fab in 5 minutes or less. 5 minutes is all we have, right moms? I’ll be showing you my tried and true hairstyles that are no fuss but look like you put in a ton of effort.

What will you need for the Two Minute Tuck?

Second day hair (preferably that was curled the previous day) and an elastic beaded headband.

Here’s how to do it:

1. You will want to have second day hair for this tutorial. If not, use a dry shampoo on your roots to help your elastic beaded headband stay on your head.  I curled my hair the day before, and since I naturally have curly hair, my curls stayed pretty well. If you have the time, curl your hair with a curling wand. If not, that’s ok! Part your hair down the middle and put your headband on your head, with the front of it on your forehead for that boho look.

2. Grab your hair at the nape of your neck. You’ll want to leave a few strands by the front of your face out to keep it looking a little undone.

3. Take your hair and tuck it into the headband. You’ll want to make sure you roll it into the headband a bit, so it doesn’t come out. If your hair is shorter or has a lot of layers, you can always put a couple bobby pins in to keep it in the right place.

4. Check your hair to make sure all loose ends are tucked and run out the door. Yes, it’s that easy ladies!

So there you have it- the Two Minute Tuck. Perfect for those days when you barely have a chance to look decent before you leave the house. Let me know if you try it, and make sure to come back next Monday for another Mom Hair Monday hairstyle!

Mom Hair Monday: Bubble Ponytail Tutorial


This bubble ponytail tutorial by The Vintage Modern Wife is TOO cute and super easy! She breaks it down into a few easy steps that helped me take my hair from drab to fab in 5 minutes! Check it out for #momhairmonday!Wow! What a week it’s been! Ever since Addie’s birthday it’s been go, go, go around here! We had 3 doctor appointments last week because I was worried about Addie’s diapers being loose (turns out it was from her birthday cake) and we visited the ENT and Pulmonologist. We found out Addie is going to need ear tubes, so we scheduled an outpatient surgery for her to get that done at the end of the month along with a couple other small procedures that can be done at the same time. We also found out that Addie is doing really well with her vent settings and her doctor would like to wean her off a couple meds when he sees her again at the end of the month. All around it was a crazy week, but it was good, nonetheless. This week, I needed a SUPER FAST hairstyle that would be functional and fun because I did NOT have time to fuss with it. I came up with the bubble ponytail as my hairstyle of choice this week, and I couldn’t believe how fast I could fix my hair so we could run out the door.

We also took Addie to the zoo over the weekend and had a great time despite the heat. Addie was a trooper and we managed to stay 2 hours. Luckily, we have a membership to the zoo, because we didn’t even get to see half of the zoo in that time since it was so hot. We’re still tired from that trip to the zoo, but thankfully Mathew has today off, so we are going to just have a good time relaxing.

Remember: The goal of Mom Hair Monday? To give you a cute, functional hairstyle that will take you from drab to fab in 5 minutes. 5 minutes is all we have, right moms? I’ll be showing you my tried and true hairstyles that are no fuss but look like you put in a ton of effort. The fourth installment of Mom Hair Monday starts NOW and is the bubble ponytail.

What will you need for the Bubble Ponytail?

3 clear elastics, 1 regular hair elastic, bobby pins, and a brush (I love the Wet Brush.)

Here’s how to do it:

1. Roll out of bed with your messy bed head. The beauty of this ponytail is that it isn’t perfect and really needs that messy bed head to give it some oomph. If you are the complete opposite of me and have volume issues, spray some dry shampoo (I love Batiste) and tease your hair a bit at the crown and nape. Don’t over-tease though! You don’t want it to look frizzy! If you’re a shower-in-the-morning kinda gal, wash, blow dry, and add that dry shampoo so your bubble ponytail will last all day.

2. Brush the back section and put into a loose, high ponytail. I flipped my head upside down to do this, but that’s totally up to you. Secure with your hair elastic.

3. Take a small section of your ponytail and separate it. Wrap it around your ponytail holder to conceal it and secure with a bobby pin or two on the underside of the ponytail.

4. Using your 3 clear elastics, secure your hair as seen in the picture. You’ll want each of them evenly spaced out.
