Target Haul!

Hey Everyone! So I know I was supposed to do my makeup I have been loving, but I totally forgot to take a picture of my makeup, so I’d thought I’d do a target hall. I am very proud of myself, because I actually just got all the products I have been looking for. You all know how it can be, you go in for one thing and come out with 50 ha ha. So I have two Holy Grail and one new product. So if you have curly hair you might be interested.

DUO Eyelash Adhesive:

Price: $4.19 but prices do vary

So I got this stuff because I have used it before and liked it, honestly I am not a false eyelash person, but I’d be able to wear them for special occassions or if I go out, so I have been practicing, and I have been getting better!

*Camilla Rose Moisture Milk:

Price: 14.99 but I got it on sell today for 13 something

All of her products smell good, sweet but not overly sweet, which is nice because I am not a fan of. I am excited to try this because I have purched the OYIN hair milk 2x and loved it, but I wanted to try something new. So i’ll keep you all updated on how this works.

Camilla Rose Algae Deep Conditioner:

Price:19.99 but I got it on sell for $17.99

So I LOVE this stuff and haved purchases it several times, it rich, lasts for about a month to six weeks (I use a lot of conditioner) and use it about once or twice a week, and sometimes I add olive oil to it, if my hair is super dry. So yes  yes this stuff is expensive, and yes there are other deep conditioners, but this is a love affair that won’t break, For my fine strand, dry tightly coiled hair, this stuff is the bomb.com. I have tried others but I always come back.

Thanks for reading, and have an awesome day!

Easy and fast Hair style: Braided Perm Rod set

Hey Ya’ll so I was browsing YouTube for new hair styles to try, and I got inspired by videos on the flexi-rod braid out, so I decided to try the look. So I tried it and while I did like it, I didn’t like how it shrunk my hair up. The flexi-rods are longer than my hair, so I had to wrap it around the braid, instead or just wrapping it around the end, like you can do if your hair is longer. So I decided to use perm rods instead, they are smaller, so I can just wrap them around the ends of my hair.

Products: Perm Rods, Hair Rules leave in (trying to use it up) Naptural85’s oil, Denman Brush, and Ecostyler Gel (the clear one).

Here is the Oil Recipe:

Step One: I did this style on stretched old hair. I took sections of medium sizes, braided it halfway down, then wrapped the  part that’s not braided around the perm rod.

 

???????????????????????????????

 

Step Two: I then put on my silk bonnet, went to bed and woke up and removed the perm rods and took the braids out from my hair.

???????????????????????????????

 

Step Three: I added avocado oil to my hands, to help cut down on frizz, as I took the braids out from my hair, this is right after I took my hair down.

???????????????????????????????

 

Step Fours: After Lots of rubbing with the balls of my fingers and using the pick at my scalp, this was the end style and I loved it.

???????????????????????????????

 

Thanks for reading! What styles has YouTube inspired you to try lately?

 

 

 

Sunday Hair Routine

Hey guys! So i am writing today to tell you about my Sunday hair routine and some of my favorite products. Having Kinky-Curly hair, I like to deep condition once a week (sometimes my laziness get in the way though ;)) and wash my hair once a week. I used to use shampoo every week, but now i use a cleansing conditioner, it gets my hair clean without stripping it. Image

This is the AS I Am cleansing coconut co wash, i love this stuff, as you can see from the picture is a creamy product but the consistency is thin, which is great for cleansing. I like this because it gets my hair clean, detangles my hair while cleansing, and doesn’t strip my hair. Please be sure to condition afterwards because it is a cleanser and doesn’t t give you that much moisture. Also when i cleanse my hair i mostly just focus on the scalp.

Price: $7.99-$9.99 for 16 oz, great deal and i have had this same tub for a few months

Cons: The packaging is terrible for the shower, many times have a spilled this and got water inside the tub, grrr.

After i cleanse m hair i wrap it up in an microfiber towel, so the deep conditioner can penetrate better, and also because i just don’t like water dripping down my neck. I keep the towel on for about five minutes. 1st panel

Next i put on my deep conditioner, i usually use different combinations, but i  always like to use  honey and extra virgin olive oil, i love these two, they make my hair so soft, moisturized and shiny. This time i used two things i have never used before Alma Power and Brahmi Powder.

  • Alma powder has many benefits especially for curly hair, add texture, volume, wave curl, adds shine, promotes hair growth, tightens up coils/curls and thicker stronger hair strands
  •  Brahmi Powder Strengthens the roots of your hair makes the hair denser, long, shiny, and dark toned, controls dandruff reduces the amount of hair loss, treats eczema and psoriasis.

Now i don’t know if i believe all these claims but wanted to try them out. Here is my mixture. 2nd panel with it on. 

Yeah, Yeah, it looks…interesting , okay, okay it looks gross i know, but beauty isn’t always pretty, ha ha.ImageSo here it what i added the measurements aren’t exact.

  • 2 tablespoons Amla Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Brahmi Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon of Organic Raw Honey (shine and moisture)
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons of Raw Organic Apple Cider vinegar (shine and clarifying)
  • 1 Tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (moisture)

Then i just mixed it all together and applied it to my hair in section, detangling  as i went along. I put on a plastic cap 3rd panel and left it on for about an hour. the washed it out.

Results: ImageI was left with shiny moisturized hair, i really liked this combination, i felt the Alma powder helped form my curls, and the Brahmi powder helped my scalp, since i suffer a bit from dandruff.

Pro: Shiny hair, cleansed scalp

Cons: Combo not as moisturizing as others, and the smell of all the ingredients wasn’t that great,

All in all i would purchase the Alma Powder again but not sure about the Brahmi powder. But i love that this deep conditioner was all natural, and i can make it at home.

What is your favorite shampoo and conditioner, and do you have a hair routine?

Thanks for reading!!
