It is prom season! I still cannot believe my daughter is a senior and about to graduate high school next month. Besides planning for college and her graduation party, we are now prepping for prom. With only two weeks to spare until the big night we put together a High School Prom Pamper Kit to get us started.
When getting ready for prom most girls wear an up-do hairstyle that requires the use of heating tools that may damage their hair. Our first step to get pampered for prom was to repair any damage and nourish my teen’s hair.
We decided to use the Whole Blends Repairing Hair Care three step system.
Garnier Whole Blends Repairing Hair Care strengthens and heals damage. My daughter has dyed her hair more times than I can count and using a straighten and curling iron weekly. The carefully-selected ingredients in the formulas are made to nourish deeply, hydrate, and repair.
The Garnier Whole Blends Repairing Mask is used while in the shower between your shampoo and conditioner. You leave the mask on for three minutes before rinsing out. You can soak in a warm tub during the three minutes as a bonus pampering treatment or let the mask sit on your hair while you shave your legs. Then rinse and go.
We found the entire Garnier Whole Blends Hair Care Line at our local Walmart. The Honey Treasures scent smells amazing. The luscious formula with the essence of royal jelly, honey and propolis – it made my daughter’s hair so soft. The wholesome loving care is blended for naturally beautiful hair. The perfect way to kick off our prom pampering by repairing her damaged hair.

Prom Tip: When deciding on a hair style, try a few before the big night to see which you truly love with your face shape and hair length. Don’t wait until the day of and realize you hate the style you were hoping for!
My teen has super straight hair. She doesn’t even have to blow dry it straight. Unfortunately, that means when she wants to wear the beachy hair look, she has to curl it. Below is our tutorial on creating beach waves in your hair using a curling iron and a few minutes to spare.
Creating Beach Waves with Curling Iron
Start by curling the top of the hair piece. As you can see in the photo, I leave some of the hair hanging out of the curling iron. You do not want the entire piece of hair curled at the same time. This will give you tight curls which is not the look we are going for. Hold for six seconds and move down the hair.
As you move down the hair you let the top section fall out. Hold another six seconds at the bottom and release. It is okay to leave the very ends straight. This gives it a more natural look instead of being curled under.
Once you are done with the entire head, let the curls cool before touching them. At first you will see some thick curls that look chunky and not so much of the simple wave, this is normal.
After the curls have cooled, break them apart.
As you split apart the large, thick curls you will see more of a natural wave. If any of the curls are still too tight, pull on them to loosen.
Loose curls or a beach wave look is truly simple to create. You can create beach waves around your entire head in minutes. Remember to always let your curls cool before running your fingers through your hair. This way they are sure to last longer and not fall back out straight.
Prom Tip: When wearing a dress that goes around the neck, opt for dangle earrings instead of a necklace.

Prom Tip: Use a scarf unfolded as a light shaw around your backless dress.
We are counting down the days until her prom! The above photo was from the JROTC Military Ball this week.
