Product Review: Creme of Nature Pure Honey Twisting Cream

Honey, honey, honey do we have some new products on our hands! This is my second twisting cream in a matter of months, first was Taliah Waajid’s Curly Curl Cream which I’ve only used once. However, I decided to get a second option and use them interchangeably. While in St. Lucia, there was a hair store right next door to my hotel (the temptation). After … Continue reading Product Review: Creme of Nature Pure Honey Twisting Cream

Product Review: Shea Moisture Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil

Hey guys! While I was away, I wanted to purchase some new hair products as the ones I had at home were running low. Initially I had my mind set on either Eden Body Works or TGIN but unfortunately the Walgreens I visited didn’t have either.

3 Impressive Ways to Use Aloe Vera on Natural Hair

Protective Style + Hair Update

Hey Guys!

I’ve really been delaying this post for quite some time. Truth is, I’ve just been lazy and not in the mood to write. However, I’m forcing myself to get it done because “discipline“. If you’re an OG (original) follower you would have seen that I had a strict schedule of posting on Sundays & Wednesdays. Somehow, that changed and I can barely post once a week. Nonetheless, what’s been up with my hair?

I may have mentioned before how much of a task my hair is to deal with. It’s been even harder to retain moisture especially living in a tropical environment. During the summer I decided to make my load easier by doing a protective style, so I tried out faux locs for the first time. After taking them out I still wasn’t in the mood to deal with my hair so, a week later it was time for another protective style!

Protective Style

For this protective style I decided on Bob Braids. The longer braids usually keep me hot, and it’s difficult to tie up for sleeping/showering. I got this style from Pinterest, but it’s also quite popular on IG from a girl who does faux locs. Originally I wanted to incorporate grey/silver hair in my braids, as well as purple rubber bands on the ends. However, I wasn’t sure how “professional” it would have been in a work setting. I was also scheduled to travel for work the following week. Continue reading “Protective Style + Hair Update”

Wash Day + TwistOuts ft. New Hair Products

Hey Guys!

It’s been a long while, however I’m back with a review on some new products I finally got to try. In case you didn’t know between last month and earlier this month, I was rocking a protective style – Faux Locs. Since then, I’ve washed and deep conditioned my hair a few times and I think I’m now ready to give an honest review on the products used. I didn’t use products from one specific brand, but rather three which include Shea Moisture, Eden Body Works and TGIN.
