The Pioneer Woman Shares Her Easy Trick for Bouncy Red Curls

A Curl Tutorial from Ree Drummond

Posted on

Ree Drummond is best known for her vibrant red hair and the television program entitled The Pioneer Woman on The Food Network which began in 2011. She first came on the scene with her blog, The Pioneer Woman, which documents Drummond’s daily life as a ranch wife and mother in Pawhuska, Oklahoma. Drummond has become an icon in the food and home world and has now taken to social media to do some beauty influencing.

She posted an Instagram Reel video and in-depth tutorial on how to get some loose blowout-style curls. The video now has more than 1 million views and she explains her technique.

She prefers to start with semi-damp hair, then rolls the hair using large velcro rollers to provide volume. Then, once the hair is fully dry, she takes out the rollers one by one and uses a large-size curling iron to curl the hair as she goes. 

Watch the video here:

Drummond, commonly referred to as “The Pioneer Woman”, also fingers through the curls once done and adds texturizing spray. If you like this kind of hairstyle, check out other tips and tricks for redheads using velcro rollers:

Hair Gems Are Back—Here’s How Redheads Can Get In on the Y2K Trend

Bring on the Bling!

Posted on

If you’ve seen any of the photos and videos from Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour, you know hair gems are back in. These cute glittery hair accessories were hot in the 2000s and now they are back in action. We think hair gems will be everywhere this spring and summer, so here’s how redheads can rock them.

What are hair gems?

If this is your first time hearing about hair gems, you might be wondering what the heck we are talking about. Hair gems are little rhinestones (or sometimes pearls) that secure to hair strands. It makes the rhinestones appear like they are floating in the hair. It gives a very ethereal look and elevates any hairstyle

How to apply hair gems

Hair gems are super easy to put in and you can do it right at home. If you want to make things easier, simply get a hair gems stamper like the Conair Quick Gems Hair Jeweler or the Blinger Gem Stamper. You can also install the gems yourself using loose gems and lash glue, or gems with an adhesive backing like these Outus Hair Pearls or these Self-Adhesive Rhinestone Gem Stickers

How to rock hair gems

Hair gems can look amazing in any hairstyle, but we really love them in loose waves, a stickled back look, or even in a braid or ponytail. Gems are perfect for special events like weddings and graduation, and of course for concerts, parties, and even just a time when you want to add a little glam to your red hair.

What’s Best For Redheads: Perfume Oil Vs. Alcohol Based Fragrances

There is a clear winner in our book

Posted on

When shopping for perfumes, you’re faced with a lot more options than just the scent. You also have to choose what type of perfume you want and how you want to apply it. There are two main types of perfumes, alcohol-based and oil-based. Alcohol-based perfumes usually come in a spray or roll-on, whereas oil-based perfumes are almost always rolled or dabbed on. 

These two perfume formulas can give you very different results and can interact differently with the skin. Here’s everything you need to know so you can choose the formula that works best for you and your redhead skin:

1. Alcohol-based

Most popular perfumes are alcohol-based. Alcohol-based perfumes give you a stronger and more powerful scent. They can also be applied more easily and with less mess. One drawback to alcohol-based perfumes is the way they interact with sensitive skin. Many people with sensitive skin find alcohol-based perfumes harsh or irritating on the skin. They can also be drying to the skin (and to the hair, if applied there). Depending on the perfume, alcohol-based perfumes may also have a lingering alcohol scent. 

2. Oil-based

Oil-based fragrances are gaining popularity, but are still less common than alcohol-based ones. Unlike an alcohol-based perfume, an oil-based one is more subtle and light. Often alcohol-based perfumes can be smelled from several feet away, while oil-based perfumes can only be smelled at a closer range. Oil-based perfumes win when it comes to the longevity of the scent, though. They often last 3-5 times longer than alcohol-based ones. Oil-based perfumes can be messy, which is why they are often dabbed or rolled onto the skin. However, they won’t dry or irritate the skin like an alcohol-based one. Oil-based scents also feel richer and more full-bodied because they are diluted down with alcohol. 

3. Which is better for redheads?

Each perfume type has its pros and cons, but for sensitive-skinned redheads oil-based perfumes are a clear winner in our book. Want to try some ‘Redhead-Friendly’ oil-based perfumes? Check out some of our favorites:

Slugging The Body: What It Means and How Redheads Can Try It

It is all about targeting dry areas

Posted on

Chances are you’ve heard of facial slugging and nail slugging, but did you know you can actually apply the slugging technique to any part of your body?

If you’re unfamiliar with slugging, it’s essentially where you slather the skin in a heavy-duty, non-pore-clogging moisturizer (think: Vaseline or Aquaphor) to help create an air barrier and trap in the moisture.

Now you might be imagining someone covering their body from head to toe in Vaseline. While that might make your skin silky smooth, it’s simply not realistic. Instead, body slugging is more about targeting dry areas that need extra hydration

Targeted body slugging is really helpful for adding moisture to the skin quickly and locks in hydration in those dry spots. This is a great technique for those in cold or dry climates who aren’t getting the hydration they need from regular lotion and moisturizers. Some common areas that can benefit from body slugging are the elbows, knees, hands and feet. You can apply your Vaseline to other parts of the body like the legs and arms as well. It’s all up to how much hydration you think you need. 

If you’re interested in trying out body slugging, there are a couple of ways you can go about it.

1. Simply apply Vaseline or other moisture barrier cream straight to the skin. This will provide soft skin, but #2 might be more effective. 

2. Apply your body care products first and trap them in with Vaseline/your preference for a moisture barrier. This choice is simply more comfortable and an easy step to add to a skincare routine. 

Either way, you will want to use clothing to keep the products on the skin, especially if you’re doing this at night. It’s recommended to put on socks and loose clothing to cover all parts of the body when you’re slugging.

Keep your slugging product on for at least 6 hours and either rub in the remainder or wash it off with a gentle cleanser. Keep up with your regular moisturizer and report back to us on how targeted body slugging works for you and your redhead skin.

Freckles & Moles: This Is When Redheads Should Get Checked By A Dermatologist

Know What to Look For!

Posted on

With an estimated 80% of redheads having freckles, and all natural redheads having an increased risk of skin cancer, it can sometimes be hard to know when you should visit the dermatologist. Most freckles are harmless and simply a gathering of melanin under the skin, but you should know what to look for and when it’s time to visit the doctor. Here’s how to tell which freckles (and moles) might need a second look: 

1. Look at the size

Freckles or moles larger than a pencil eraser in diameter should always be checked. Additionally, if you have a freckle or mole that has changed in size, you will want to alert your dermatologist. Getting new freckles over time is quite common, but keep an eye on them and make sure nothing looks out of the ordinary. 

2. Check the shape

In addition to size, the shape of a freckle or mole can be an indicator. Most freckles and moles are round in shape, if you have one that looks to be an abnormal shape or changes shape, let your doctor know so they can check it. 

3. Pain is a warning

A freckle or mole causing you pain is always a reason to head to the doctor. Non-cancerous freckles and moles should not cause any pain or discomfort. Get it checked out right away if you’re experiencing either of those symptoms. 

4. Color is key

If you have a freckle that isn’t the same color as your other freckles, or a mole that is changing color or appears to be an odd color, this is a sign to alert your doctor. 

While all of these signs may indicate a cancerous freckle or mole, it’s not a sure thing. Make sure you visit your dermatologist and have it checked out if you’re unsure. You should also be visiting your dermatologist regularly so they can keep an eye on things and make sure nothing is missed. If caught early, skin cancer can often be treated and cause little to no disruption to your life.

Edible Sunscreen: How To Protect Your Redhead Skin from the Inside Out

Amazing News: Sun Protection Can Come From Your Diet

Posted on

Wearing sunscreen and protecting your skin is the best way to avoid skin cancer, damage, and accelerated signs of aging. We know what you’re thinking when you clicked on this article: no, there is not edible sunscreen product. However, there are foods you can eat to help protect your redhead skin from the sun

What do foods actually protect redhead skin from the sun? 

Foods high in antioxidants can help, in combination with your topical SPF, to protect your skin. This is because different compounds in food can help to fight damage to the skin. A CNN Health article discusses the subject with Dr. Rajani Katta, an expert, and author in the field as well as Dr. Patricia Ferris, a dermatologist, and fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology. 

Ferris explains that properties in oranges, red fruits, vegetables, green tea, red grapes, and berries all offer the body natural sun protection from the inside out.

For younger-looking skin and increased sun protection, Katta recommends eating plenty of foods rich in antioxidants, omega-3s, and vitamin C. This includes foods like tomatoes, sweet potatoes, spinach, berries, grapes, pomegranates, oranges, grapefruits, kiwis, broccoli, fatty fish, flaxseeds, and walnuts. You may also be able to sip your way to more sun-safe skin by drinking coffee and green tea. 

Reminder: always use SPF 

Eating a healthy diet is always encouraged, but the added pro of some internal sun protection might encourage you to add a few more fruits and veggies to your diet. Just remember diet alone is not enough to protect the skin and SPF should still be used daily regardless of the weather conditions.

How Redheads Can Heal Skin Irritated After Waxing

Ouch! Nobody Likes Irritated Skin

Posted on

If you want hair gone fast and silky smooth skin left behind, waxing is a no-brainer. For sensitive-skinned redheads, waxing often comes with an unfortunate and uncomfortable side effect: irritated skin. Redheads with sensitive skin can become irritated from both soft and hard wax, as well as at-home wax strips. 

Skin irritation from waxing can occur anywhere on the body, but one common area is on the upper eyelid near the brow bone when having the eyebrows waxed. Since facial skin is thinner and more sensitive (also known as couperose skin) than other parts of the body, this area is prone to irritation which can lead to redness, dry patches, and inflammation. 

Skin irritation can be minimized by using soft wax, being gentle, and not over-waxing. Even if all the precautions are taken, sometimes you may still end up with small patches of irritated skin.

Here’s how to heal your redhead skin quickly and effectively if waxing causes irritation: 

1. Keep the area hydrated

The number one way to heal this spot is to keep it hydrated. When waxing, a layer of your skin is actually removed, so the skin underneath is tender, red and may scab over. Keeping it hydrated with moisturizers and repair creams will help it to acclimate quickly without much pain or dryness. 

2. Use anti-inflammatory products + ice

To reduce redness and swelling and help the spot heal, use products that are anti-inflammatory and soothing like aloe, CBD cream, licorice root, and anything with turmeric in it. You can also ice the area to help alleviate redness and swelling. 

3. Don’t pick, pluck or rub the area

If a dry patch begins to form, it can be tempting to want to remove that skin by peeling or rubbing it off. If you’re experiencing redness or irritation in the brow area and you want your eyebrows to look good, you might be tempted to pluck any new or missed hairs. Both of these actions will lead to prolonged redness and irritation, so leave it alone for a few days until it’s healed. 

4. Skip the exfoliants 

Another way people tend to want to remove dryness is by exfoliating. Skip this step in the irritated area until it’s fully healed. Exfoliants will only irritate it more and may lead to the dry patches staying even longer. 

5. Avoid chemicals

Avoid putting anything harsh on the area including things with heavy chemicals, perfumes, and dyes. This means you should tint your brows before you wax them, so you aren’t applying dye directly on the irritated skin.

Puffy Eyes Due To Allergy Season? Here’s How Redheads Can Treat It

Bye Bye Puffy Allergy Eyes!

Posted on

Spring is allergy season, and along with those allergies comes a host of unwanted issues. A big issue is puffy eyes. Here’s how you can fight puffy eyes this spring and look your best: 

1. Use something cold

Getting your puffy eyes to shrink is easiest when you use something cold. Try putting a cold compress or cold washcloth over your eyes for 10-15 minutes to help reduce puffiness. You can also use an ice roller under your eyes if you’re in a hurry. If you don’t have an ice roller, try keeping a clean spoon in your freezer, you can pull it out and place it under the eye when needed. Just make sure to wash it off and place it back in the freezer for use next time. 

2. Try tea bags under your eyes 

Tea bags are great for reducing puffy eyes. You want to use black or green tea because they have the most caffeine and antioxidants. Simply steep two tea bags as you normally would and then squeeze out the excess liquid. Let them cool and then place them over the eyes for 15-30 minutes. 

3. Take an antihistamine*

An obvious way to reduce the signs of allergy swelling and puffiness is to take an antihistamine. This can help to reduce the symptoms you are feeling and help your body return to normal. You can also use allergy-specific eye drops to help reduce irritation. 

4. Use caffeine directly under your eyes 

Caffeine serums won’t take immediate effect like some other treatments but long-term use of caffeine serums can help to fight under-eye puffiness from allergies. A great redhead-friendly option is The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG

*Always consult with your doctor first before using any medication.

Still Dealing With A Dry, Flaky Scalp? How Redheads Can Treat It

Bye Bye, Dry Scalp

Posted on

Lots of people, especially redheads with sensitive skin, struggle with seasonal dandruff. A new season can cause scalp irritation you normally don’t experience. If you’re still suffering from a dry, flaky scalp, here’s what you can do to combat it: 

1. Do a scalp scrub

Some of the flakiness you’re dealing with may be residue leftover from the season before. Often we can relieve dry, dead skin with a few good washes, but sometimes it hangs on. Doing a scalp scrub will help to loosen any lingering flakes and help you get a fresh, clean scalp. Add in a scalp scrub once a week to your wash routine, and use a silicone scalp scrubber every wash to help things along.

2. Swap your shampoo seasonally

Dandruff shampoos aren’t quite known for leaving hair silky soft and feeling healthy. That’s because their aim is to target the scalp and not nourish the locks. Using a dandruff shampoo seasonally can help to cut back on flakes, but you may no longer need it now. If you’re still suffering from dry scalp, try double washing once with dandruff shampoo and once with a hydrating shampoo, or switch it to every other wash. 

3. Start hair oiling

Getting rid of the dry, dead skin isn’t enough. You have to start adding hydration and nourishment back into the scalp to help move past the dry patch. Hair oiling is a great way to nourish your strands while also giving your scalp the boost it needs. 

4. Use a humidifier

If you live in a dry climate, or you’re somewhere where the weather is still chilly, you may need to add some more moisture into your home. Using a humidifier will help to moisten the scalp and rid it of any dry flakes. A humidifier on its own may not solve your hair problems, but it can help in conjunction with the other efforts listed.

How to Wash Your Red Hair Properly in 4 Easy Steps

It's Easy to Get Great Hair!

Posted on

Updated: May 25th, 2023

Cleansing your red hair properly will completely change the hair game. It will leave your hair looking and feeling better and make it so you can go longer between washes. Do you want to know the steps to get the most out of your next wash? We’ve got you covered, redheads.

4 Steps on How to Wash Your Red Hair Properly:

Step 1: Prep your shower. Make sure you’re using warm, but not hot water. This will help to reduce frizz. Wondering what the proper temperature is? Read The Ideal Shower Temperature For Redhead Skin

Step 2: Wet hair thoroughly and apply shampoo. Most shampoos go a long way, so start with just a little and add more shampoo if the hair is longer and thicker. Make sure you lather well and scrub the roots. Shampoo is best applied to the scalp and mid-section of the head, and finish by rinsing through the ends. Double washing is a beneficial step that helps to get a deep cleanse and helps to increase the time between washes. Be sure to rinse out your shampoo completely. 

Step 3: Apply conditioner to the mid-shaft of hair to the roots, avoiding the scalp (especially if you have oily hair). For a deep condition, let your conditioner sit on the hair for 5-10 minutes while you continue on with the rest of your shower. You can throw it up in a bun to keep the conditioner from rinsing out while you wash and shave. Be sure to rinse your hair in lukewarm or even cool water

Step 4: Pat your hair dry with a microfiber hair towel or cotton t-shirt. Avoid using rough terrycloth towels and avoid rubbing to reduce frizz. Apply your products and air dry or blow dry your hair.

This Is The One Plant Every Redhead Should Own

Harvest your own gel to help with sunburns

Posted on

If there’s one plant every redhead should own it’s… an aloe vera plant. Not only are these common houseplants cute and hardy, but they also have some great benefits for redheads.

Aloe naturally releases a gel that heals and soothes sunburns or any other burns. Most redheads are all too familiar with sunburns, and aloe makes a great remedy. Simply scoop out the inside of the leaf and slather it on. You can also harvest it ahead of time and cool it for a nice soothing effect.

How to use an aloe vera plant to soothe your burn: 

Apply fresh aloe to sunburnt skin to reduce redness, itching, and irritation. It will help the burn to cool down and heal faster, hopefully with less peeling and pain. Aloe can also be used on other minor burns such as a burn from a hot pan in the kitchen. 

Soothing burns is just one of the main benefits of Aloe plants. They may also help with:

  • Acne
  • Skin inflammation/irritation
  • Blood sugar levels
  • Constipation
  • Mouth bacterial/dental health

By having an aloe plant in your home, you can harvest the gel yourself and keep it handy whenever you need it this spring/summer.
