Jane Carter Solution Restore Moisture Mist Review

Jane Carter Restore Moisture Mist

Having thick hair is both a blessing and a curse. It’s nice to have lots of volume and body but it’s a lot of maintenance. My thick hair usually requires regular protein treatments and a lot of moisture to keep it healthy, shiny and frizz free. Keeping my hair moisturized has always been a struggle for me because my hair is so thick and dry that it soaks up everything like a sponge and begs for more. It seemed that I can never quite keep my thirsty hair hydrated long enough until I came across the Jane Carter Solution Restore Moisture Mist on clearance at Ulta. This stuff has changed my life!


Éprouvage Replenishing Leave-In Conditioner Review

Eprouvage Replenishing Leave-In Conditioner

Anyone who knows me knows that I don’t like to do much to my hair on a regular basis. Which is why I’m almost always in a bun because it’s simple, quick and doesn’t take much effort at all. Just a little water, oil and leave-in conditioner. That’s it. For months, I’ve been using Creme of Nature’s Argan Oil Strength & Shine Leave-In Conditioner with great results but I received the new Éprouvage Replenishing Leave-In Conditioner in my gratis bag from Ulta and was curious to see how it would work for my thick, dry relaxed hair.

The Éprouvage haircare line is a new addition to Ulta that’s designed to help fight aging hair and hair loss using progressive plant technology. The line is color safe and free of sulfates, parabens and gluten so it’s great for women of all walks of life and all hair types. Including my thick, dry relaxed strands. At first, I was a little skeptical to try the Éprouvage Replenishing Leave-In Conditioner because I don’t have problems with aging hair or hair loss just yet. However, I was pleasantly surprised once I started using it because I noticed that the Replenishing Leave-In Conditioner works wonders for cutting down on shedding and breakage–which is a huge problem for relaxed hair. Relaxers weaken the hair shaft and causes hair to feel dry and brittle so I’m always on the hunt for a solid leave-in conditioner that help keep my strands moisturized and healthy. Surprisingly, I think Éprouvage has nailed it!


Creme of Nature Argan Oil Strength & Shine Leave-In Conditioner Review

Creme of Nature Argan Oil Strength & Shine Leave-In Conditioner

There’s many different things that can hinder retention and one of the most common is a lack of moisture. I’m big on moisturizing and sealing my hair regularly because it’s an easy way to make sure I’m keeping my tresses hydrated and healthy–especially my ends. My relaxed hair is very thick and dry so I heavily rely on a good leave-in conditioner to moisturize my hair and keep it healthy.

During a recent trip to Sally Beauty, I came across the Creme of Nature Argan Oil Strength & Shine Leave-In Conditioner. The Creme of Nature Argan Oil line is very popular among natural and relaxed hair gals so I was a bit curious to see how the leave-in would work for me. My hair loves argan oil and conditioner so it had to be a match made in heaven, right?

As I Am Leave-In Conditioner Review

As I Am Naturally Leave-In Conditioner

Bunning ain’t easy! Is it convenient? Hell yes. Most times I just wash my hair, let it air dry a bit, toss it in a bun and barely touch it for a week. Is it easy to create? Not on your life! Don’t get me wrong. Buns are a seriously simple hairstyle that just about anyone can achieve but it takes a little more work when your hair is long, thick and curly. I rely on 3 essential ingredients to achieve to the perfect bun:

  1. Water
  2. Oil
  3. Leave-In Conditioner

Motions Pre-Wash Detangling Butter Review

Motions Pre-Wash Detangling Butter

I’m usually always telling you guys what hot, new products to try next but a lot of times I discover amazing products from you guys and other bloggers. I’ve lost count how gems I’ve came across from reading reviews. One of my many influencers is Danielle, The Style and Beauty Doctor, another brown girl blogger who’s always coming across the good stuff. One day, she did a review on the Motions Pre-Wash Detangling Butter and the next thing I knew, I was running out to Walgreens for it.


Africare 100% Glycerin Review

Africare 100% Glycerin

Let me tell you ’bout my bestfrieeeend! It’s the awesome natural (and vegan) Africare 100% Glycerin. This stuff is literally all you could ever need to hydrate, condition and nourish your body from head to toe. Why? Because pure glycerin is like cutting out the middle man. If you look at the ingredients of any moisturizing product in your home (body and hair) you’ll spot glycerin somewhere high on the list.

Want Long, Thick Hair? Try Jamaican Black Castor Oil!

Jamaican Mango & Lime Jamaican Black Castor Oil

Can you believe that just adding a little Jamaican Black Castor Oil to your routine can completely transform your hair? You should! For centuries, Jamaican Black Castor Oil has been a hair care staple for many reasons. It’s extremely moisturizing, conditions and strengthens the hair and it increases hair growth. It’s pretty much a miracle oil!

I bought the Jamaican Mango & Lime Jamaican Black Castor Oil many months ago and I’ve used it pretty much everyday since. In fact, I’ve already finished this bottle and went back to grab another. My relaxed hair is very thick and very dry so I’m always on the lookout for products that make my life a little easier and this is it. Since I’m always pretty busy and too tired (lazy) to really do anything to my hair I live in a high bun. Which is great for protecting my ends and retaining length but not so much for the edges over time if I’m not careful. However, I apply a little water and a dime sized amount of Jamaican Black Castor Oil to my edges everyday to keep them nice and healthy and prevent them from thinning out.
