How I Keep My Hair Healthy!

  Last fall, I cut my hair off and decided to go relaxer free. It’s all a part of my journey to remove as many chemicals, preservatives, and artificial ingredients from my life. I try to use mostly natural products except for hair dye. I think I’ve found a solid hair routine for my TWA…

Marshalls…Here We Go Again!

I had an appointment on a side of town that I rarely visit. It dawned on me that there was a Marshalls and Home Goods nearby. I hadn’t been to this location for years, so I just had to peek my little head in and take a look around. One of my favorite things to…

Marshalls & Home Goods: Guess What I Found?

I stopped by a Marshalls & HomeGoods store that’s in a high traffic mall area. The Marshalls is upstairs and the HomeGoods is downstairs. I hate the layout because you have to pay for your purchases before going into the other store. Anyway, I started my shopping experience in HomeGoods. Yummy. Non-alcoholic Kahlua coffee. The…

Shea Moisture’s Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil …Wow!!

The leave-in conditioner is like a lotion. It’s not runny but not a thick cream. It slipped right through my…

The leave-in conditioner is $10 and the curling jelly is $12. The So Much Moisture leave-in conditioner has aloe vera, lavender, and vegetable…

Jane Carter’s Curls to Go Curl Cocktail Cream: Does It Work?

In the past two months that I’ve been natural, I’ve accumulated a lot of products. I’m testing products and formulas to see what my hair likes. This week, I’m putting Jane Carter’s Curls Cocktail styler to the test. I need for it to define my curls, moisturize, and hold the curls for at least three…

A New “Natural” Look

I recently decided to stop getting relaxers and wear my hair as it grows out of my head…curly and coily. I’ve done this before. About ten years ago, I had a health issue that thinned my normally thick hair. I decided to wear weaves while my hair recovered. Soon my hair grew back longer than…
