A few new things...

Hi all!
I wanted to come by and share a few new products I picked up within the last couple days :-)

As some of you may or may not know, Shea moisture has announced 2 new lines in which they have created for hair and body. Shea moisture has come out with the following and I am super excited! 
Super fruit complex line (available at Ulta this month)
 Jamaican black castor line (available at CVS in late July)

I managed to snag some of the super fruit complex hair items the other day. I picked up: the 10 in 1 renewal system conditioner, and the 10 in 1 renewal system hair and scalp serum.  I'm so excited to try both of these products, and the ingredients look pretty decent :-) the only thing I'm nervous about is the hydrolyzed rice protein in the conditioner for Shea moisture. I am pretty protein sensitive, but this protein is at the bottom of the list which should be ok. I tend to steer clear of items that have proteins within the first 5-7 ingredients on the list. 

I also picked up another item from one of my favorite lines by Camille rose.

I bought the curl aide moisture butter. It was about $16 for 8 oz at target. Many naturals like Mahogany Curls use this product and have nothing but good things to say about it. I can't wait to use this on my next rod set! 

Stay tuned for reviews on these products! I'm so excited to see how they work

Guest feature: Meet naturalista Danielle!

1. Please introduce yourself!
    My name is Danielle Chaney (everyone calls me Dani). I live in the great city of Cleveland, Ohio. I have been "creamy crack" free for about 3.5 years :-)

2. Why did you decide to go natural/ become chemical free?

    My main reason for going natural was the need for versatility. I get bored very easily and like to switch up my hairstyles a lot. I never knew what my true texture was because my Mom pressed my hair as a child until she relaxed my hair at 14. As an adult I continued to get relaxers until I was 28 and I did them quarterly. Then one day as I was browsing through makeup tutorials on Youtube, I came across a few MUAs who were also transitioning to natural hair. Watching their journeys unfold made me want to learn more about my hair. So, June 2010 i made the decision to begin transitioning. My original plan was to do it long-term. However, my impatience got the best of me, so on October 30, 2010 I big chopped. My bra strap length hair was now 2 inches long. And it felt AMAZING! I only wished I had made my decision sooner.

3. How would you describe your natural hair texture?

    I have three different textures of curls. My curls are looser in the front, the sides, and the nape of my neck. They get a little tighter as you go towards the crown area. My hair is dense but my curls are fine.  In short, I would describe it as "curly-kinky".

4. Describe your most recent style regimen within the last month.

    I'm quite the lazy natural lol I lean towards low manipulative styles (ponytails, buns, twistouts) that keep my hair stretched so it doesn't end up a tangled mess by the time I get to wash day. 

5. What are your go to hairstyle(s)?

    Spring/Summer = Wash n Gos and twistouts
    Fall/Winter = Twist outs and protective styles (braids, buns, an occasional weave/wig)
    I prefer less defined styles so first day hair is usually blah for me. The bigger the hair the better :-)

6. Do you have a specific wash regimen?
    I don't have a consistent wash regimen. I wash (clarify) and deep condition as needed and that's usually no more than once per month. If I feel my hair needs refreshing or is feeling dry, I may do a co-wash in between time. I find that the less I manipulate my hair, the more length I retain and the less breakage I experience. 

7. What are some of your favorite hair products?

    I love the Shea Moisture line. I've just recently started using Karen's Body Beautiful product line and I love that as well. I also keep a closet full of VO5 conditioners. They are cheap (less than $1), they are silicone free, and they smell AMAZEBALLS! Trader Joe's Nourishing Spa Conditioner is another fave of mine. I don't favor one over the other, I just use whatever I have on hand. I used to be a serious product junkie but I've learned that all I need is a good clarifying shampoo, a moisturizing conditioner, and water. 

8. Do you have any natural hair goals?

    I only strive for healthy hair. Length is good but its not important. I've contemplated big chopping again just for kicks lol We'll see what happens after year 4 :)

9. Do you have any advice for other new naturals or those aspiring to be natural?
    Be patient with your hair. Take lots of pictures and make a hair journal. It really helped to see my progress on paper, especially on those days when I felt like my hair wasn't growing as fast as everyone else's. And most importantly:  Don't get caught up in wanting someone else's hair or trying to make yours look like theirs. Learn, love, and embrace your own texture. 

10. How can you be contacted?

Guest feature: Meet fellow natural Imani!!

1. Please introduce yourself!

My name  is Imani and I am a student  of life! I love learning new things and I love learning about natural health (mental, physical and emotional causes of health) and about the pregnancy process. I am a Doula, a birth assistant for women during and after pregnancy.  I am also a Natural Health Consultant and I make beautiful earrings by the name of Eyecatchers Designs.  

I love being buried in a book, writing in my journal, making funny faces,hanging with friends and family and thoroughly enjoying myself at concerts . 

2. Why did you decide to go natural/ become chemical free?

I was always a fan of afros and locs! They are so beautiful to me. I had a friend ask me was I natural and my response was "huh?" lol.  She explained and encouraged me to go natural. I went home and watched youtube and I had the thought "This makes a lot of sense!  No more creamy crack for me!" :)

Going natural was not difficult for me at all, once my mind is set I go with the flow. I was only getting perms 2-3 times a year anyways. My perm was not my identity or an ego booster for me.

3. How would you describe your natural hair texture?

My hair is curly and just like any other natural, my hair does what she wants and the texture changes from time to time and depending on the weather.

4. Describe your most recent style regimen within the last month.

I don't have one of those, I tie my fro up at night in a pineapple and in the morning, I tease it with oil and take advantage of the shower steam.  My latest concoction was given to me by my little sister. It consists of almond oil, castor oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil, and drops of lemon and lavender oil for scent. 

5. What are your go to hairstyle(s)?

I am pretty simple with my hairstyles, I like fros, braidouts, twists and mohawks.  Whenever my hair is being uncooperative I just wear a puff until wash day :)

6. Do you have a specific wash regimen?

I do not have a regimen. When I was my hair I use Shea Moisture shampoo and conditioner. When I condition I put on a plastic cap for a couple of hours and then I rinse with cold water.

7. What are some of your favorite hair products?

I love shea moisture products, that is the only hair product I use. I might need to explore other options if I get bored but I loooove their line.  I always use olive oil and lemongrass oil.

8. Do you have any natural hair goals?

My natural hair goal is to keep is to keep it healthy and let it grow on its own without any interference of special tricks or products.

Imani's beauty jewelry can be viewed and purchased at . You can also find her on IG @wheatgrass_scorp :-)

Thank you so much Imani for being and inspiration to women (young and old)!!!

What those "hair supplement" companies DON'T tell you!

Hairfinity. The Mane Choice. Both of these companies are very well known companies in the natural hair community. Both offer hair products and tools to many women who have natural hair. What they are both very well known for are natural hair supplements that they offer to all ethnicities of women. You see their ads all over Instagram and Facebook, and based on the stories and "testimonies" listed on social media , you are then lured into the buying trap that these companies want you to be in.

A little background about my hair: I have very THICK, type 4 hair. With low porosity and its extremely dense. When I say my hair is thick, its extremely thick and shrinks like no ones business when water hits it. When trying these hair supplements, I was hoping that they would boost my already fast growing hair, and help me to retain some length that I "thought" I wasn't keeping.

Now I'll admit, I was one of those people who fell into the "trap". I had studied and researched Hairfinity and The Mane choice both for a quite a long time before I decided to make a purchase from both of them. I decided to give hairfinity a go first, and bought one bottle to start, just to see how I liked it...
I started taking hairfinity late fall, early winter of 2013. As indicated on the bottle, the directions are to take 2 capsules by mouth daily.( preferably with meals). As I did so, I immediately noticed two side effects from Hairfnity that I did not like. 1. Increase in Migraines (I already had a problem with migraines before starting this supplement) and 2. Acne/break-outs. My skin went crazy when I started taking these pills! I'm talking 1-2 new pimples a day. Now I'd say that my skin was is usually pretty clear and smooth and I don't have a hard time keeping it that way. As far as the migraines, I usually get those 1-2 times a month, because they are controlled with a prescription medication I am currently taking. When I started the hairfinity, I had a migraine every other night! I thought to myself, this is crazy! Nevertheless, my hair was growing slightly faster than it was without the supplements. I decided that I would not repurchase Hairfnity after finishing the first bottle.

A few months went buy, and I was still seeing posts from The Mane Choice on Instagram. I was pondering the thought of possibly trying this supplement, because maybe it was a little bit different from hairfinity. I decided to give it a go on a whim, because I felt like I had nothing else to loose. Boy was I WRONG. I will say that I didn't have the same horrible side effects with The Mane Choice vitamins as I did with Hairfinity. No breakouts and no added migraine headaches. But something just wasn't right with my hair over the course of a couple weeks, and I couldn't quite put my finger on it. I kept complaining to my mother at the time, that something just was NOT right with my hair. It wasn't responding to product like it used to, and it wasn't as thick and full as it usually was. At the time, I contemplated the big chop again, because I was so frustrated. We went over a few things that we thought could be causing the problem and left it at that. Never did we think to question the supplement I was taking. During this time, my hair was growing. I did notice the length, but the thickness just was not what it used to be. By now, I had finished  the first bottle and was on my second bottle (the last bottle). Then, one morning it HIT ME. The hair supplements were causing my hair to thin!!!! It had to be the hair supplements. I can honestly say over the course of the months I was taking the pills that this is when I saw the biggest difference in my hair. The thickness was there but the length had drastically been affected by these supplements.
Now I don't know about anyone else, But Id rather have thick, full healthy hair than long, thin, brittle hair. I'm not sure what chemical in this supplements caused the body and thickness of my hair to be affected, but let me tell you I am not liking it. 

I stopped taking the supplements the beginning of this week. I will come back to you guys in one month to show the difference in my hair as far and thickness and body. Let me just say that I am in no way trying to bash or discredit any of these companies, but I thought it was important to let the natural hair community and my followers know about this. Most of us are so consumed by getting fast, quick results, and getting long, luxurious hair fast that we will take anything and try anything to get it. What's most important is letting your hair do its own thing naturally. Drink water, eat right, take daily vitamins not aimed at hair growth, but aimed to aid the body. I fault myself from gearing away from what's important in my natural hair journey and what I want you all to take away from my posts. Healthy hair, is the best hair, no matter the length. Length will come if you do what you need to do for your hair.

Check back with me in a month guys, and I will do a follow up on how may hair is doing since I have completely stopped the hair supplements. Thanks for reading, feel free to ask questions and comment!

Alikay Naturals Lemongrass Leave in Conditioner & Essential 17 Growth Oil

Hello guys,
Coming back to you with yet another product review! As a stated a few posts ago, I had so many products to try from purchases made on Black Friday. This was one of the many purchases made, and I have had the chance to use these 2 products for a couple of months now. My mother purchased these products for me, along with a sample of the yogurt smoothie.

Around Black Friday, Alikay naturals was only available online on the alikay naturals website. It is now widely available in select target locations nationwide, as well as the target website! I'm so happy that these products will be available at a target store near me, and I'm about to tell you why.. :-)

Let's start with the Lemongrass Leave In. 
This stuff is amazing. Simple as that. It has a medium consistency, not watery but not super thick. Kind of like watered down vegetable oil. It comes with a spray bottle, which is very convenient. The smell is  of course, of lemons. It's light and airy, but not to strong for those of you with sensitive noses. It's comprised of natural ingredients (essential oils,water and glycerin just to name a few). 
I usually use this product in a combo called the LOC method ( I have a post explaining this), and this is the  Liquid (L) I use. I leave my hair soft and shiny for days. I will say, if you use way to much it can leave the hair feeling greasy and oily. I use this soaringly on my ends and then seal with oil/cream or both. This product will run you about $13 at target or on the alikay naturals website. You get and 8 oz bottle, which should last you a long time even if you have a lot of hair, like me :-).

(Sprays as a mist, and comes out clear into my hand! )

Now on to the Essential 17 hair growth oil...
Another amazing product. This is a blend of 17 natural oils, all blended up in an 8 oz jar. Oils like:Emu oil, Rosemary oil, Jojoba oil, olive oil, Sweet almond oil, Horsetail oil and peppermint oil are comprised into this product. It can be used as a sealant to seal in moisture, it can be used to add shine to dull hair, hot oil treatments and as a deep conditioner.
I use this to seal my hair every other day. I also use it to oil my scalp every now and then to avoid dandruff. 
This can be used for ALL hair types, so ladies take advantage! This can also be purchased on the alikaynaturals website, or You get and 8 oz bottle of this oil for about $15!!!!! 

Let me know how you guys like these products! How do you use your lemongrass leave in and essential 17 growth oil? Please comment and subscribe! 


Beautiful Textures Rapid Repair Conditioner

I've been on the hunt for yet another deep conditioner.....My hair is extremely protein sensitive, and if protein is anywhere at the top or the middle of the ingredients list on a product I steer clear. I have experienced some minor breakage because of this protein sensitivity, which is what led me to purchase this new amazing product! 

I've seen beautifitul textures products around, at Sally's occasionally and some local stores like Walmart and other BSS (beauty supply stores). I have so much stuff at home (yes I am a recovering product junkie).. that I have yet to try out any of their products. I was in Sally's the other day, buying hair color when I came across this product and a sale banner. "Buy 1 get 1 free" is what it said, and I immediately grabbed 2 jars to take to the check out counter. Now on to the actual review lol...

This product has a thick consistency and has a smell of mangos and fruit! (Yummy). I really enjoy fruity smells, especially this one because it's not to strong. 

The directions on this product state to apply a generous amount to strands, combing through to make sure it saturates all of the hair. For normal conditioning you can use with heat ( hooded dryer or conditioning cap) for 15 minutes. For very damaged dry hair, you can use with heat for 25-30 minutes. can I tell you how dry my hair has been lately? I've really been going through it with some new products I've decided try and had to discontinue the use of a few of them.... :-( more details on that coming later.

As always I used my heated cap for about 15 minutes with this stuff coating my hair. When I took off the heated cap and plastic cap my hair felt AH-MAZ-ING. It was soft to the touch, and was shiny!!!!!! Not to mention the ingredients are pretty natural and most of all, it doesn't contain ANY PROTEIN. I like to deep condition my coarse strands once a week for added moisture, so I will be using this again as the weeks go by. 

I will come back with and update on this product later to let you guys know if it's still doing what it did from the beginning. The Beautiful Textures Rapid Repair Conditioner is about $7 at your local store. For $7 you get A LOT of conditioner in one big jar. It's a great buy for those looking for something not only cheap but also something that gets the job done. 

Please let me know if you decide to try this, or if you've tried it and what your thoughts are on this product. Don't forget to subscribe guys! Take care!!!

Protective Style Challenge Complete!

Hey All,

A few months back, I embarked on a protective style challenge. I stated back then that I would be on this challenge until February sometime. I have since complete the challenge!
Recently I wore a sew in weave, with a little bit of leave out. The hair used for this protective style was First Remy, Bobbi Boss hair in a 1B. The lengths were 10 inch at the top and 12 inch at the bottom. Now, I know your wondering how much heat did I have to put on my hair to maintain my leave out... With the use of certain products, and with wrapping my hair at night, I only HAD to use heat once every 2 weeks! 

The products that I used on my leave out were: Organix weightless argan oil, Carols Daughter Monoi split end repair/sealer and Carols Daughter Hair Balm.

I loved having my hair straight for a while, and loved that I didn't have to use that much heat on my hair and the weave hair. The weave hair blended perfectly with my own, and the next time I get a weave I will definitely be repurchasing this hair. Every winter, I will be putting my hair in a protective style, to retain length and minimize manipulation. I feel like my hair grew a lot while in these styles, and I was restricted with the versatility. When I took the hair out and washed my real hair, I did not see any apparent heat damage. I will be going back to my conditioning regimen, which is deep conditioning every week. I will also be doing protein treatments regularly on my hair to get it back up to par.

How do you guys feel about sew in's with leave out? How often do you use heat on your hair? What kind of hair do you use? Let me know what you think!

Clarifying with Aztec Indian Healing Clay

Hey Guys!

I have been so MIA! I have been transitioning into a lot of new things lately. I started Graduate  school in January, and I also got a new job, and started training this week. Not to mention my hair has been in a protective style since early January, so I haven't really been able to try any new products or post any new reviews about them.
I took the protective style (weave) out yesterday with the help of my boyfriend. While I had this protective style in, I took the opportunity to try Hairfinity Hair Vitamins to see what all the hype was about. (A separate post will be coming for that soon).

Since I had this protective style in  for over 6 weeks, I knew when I took out this hair I needed to clarify my hair, to remove all the build up I would have from having this style. My usual clarifying routine consists of an ACV rinse, (Apple cider vinegar solution, ACV with a little water). But this time I decided to try something new! This past weekend, I found myself on YouTube, browsing my favorite natural hair guru's YouTube channels. I came across one of my fav's "HeyFranHey". Her texture and my texture are complete opposites, but I love to see what methods she uses for her hair and also what she does for her skin. I came across a video of her using the Aztec Indian Healing Clay. I've seen this particular product on other blogs and YouTube channels, and most people swear by it for their skin and also for their hair! I've heard it works wonders as a facial mask, pore reducer and it also is great for removing access oils from the skin that can cause acne and blemishes. So I though, why not use this one my hair?

The Mixture: (no exact measurements were used. I approximated until I got a nice smooth paste)

-3 scoopfuls of Aztec Healing Clay
-about a cup of "Braggs" ACV (apple cider vinegar)
- about a 1/2 cup of Aloe Vera juice

I mixed all of these together in a glass bowl, until I received a nice smooth paste.
PLEASE NOTE: It is advised on the packaging of the clay that you DO NOT use metal utensils or bowls when dealing with this product. The metal mixed with the clay creates some kind of charge :-/

I used gloves, to keep from getting my hands messy. I parted my hair in 4 sections, (makes things easier), and I proceeded to apply the mixtures evenly to my SCALP and my HAIR. I made sure to rub this into my scalp so that all of the build up accumulated, oil and dirt could be removed with the clay. After applying, I immediately washed it out. As I rinsed my hair, the product was not hard to rinse out at all, and my hair felt very moisturized. I'm thinking the reason my hair felt moisturized and not dry and stringy was because of the Aloe Vera juice I added to the mixture.
I could have proceeded to styling without deep conditioning, but since my hair hadn't been deep conditioned in so long, I knew I needed to add this step.

I will definitely be clarifying again with the Aztec Indian Healing Clay. This mixture did way better in removing buildup from my hair and scalp than just ACV alone. All of the products (Aztec Indian Healing Clay, Aloe Vera juice and ACV) were purchased from the Vitamin Shoppe by my house. All of the items together were about $15.
This method is good for ALL HAIR TYPES, not just kinky textures. I will be using this same recipe as a skin masque, and I will post to let you know how this turns out.

Let me know if you guys have any questions about the products, were to get them and your experiences with them. Don't forget to comment, subscribe and tell a friend !!!! :-)

Carols daughter Monoi products: Review

Hello everyone!
I'm back, to do a long awaited review on the Carols daughter Monoi products. This review will be posted in sections over time, because I tried each of the products at different times. For Christmas, my awesome mother purchased a BUNCH of products for me to try, and these products were included in that bunch. 
I recieved the following:
-A bottle of the monoi sulfate free shampoo
-The monoi repairing conditioner
-The monoi repairing hair mask

(Later on in the month, I purchased the monoi oil, and the monoi anti-breakage spray.)

First up is the carols daughter monoi sulfate free shampoo!
The sulfate free shampoo is a non sudsy shampoo, with the most awesome smell. The smell is hard for me to describe, but it's not to strong and also not to faint. 
This product is marketed to ALL hair types, and hair textures. So no matter your ethnicity or hair type, this product will help you with excessive shedding and hair breakage. 
I always start the hair cleansing process by pre-pooing my hair with coconut oil, and also detangling. This helps to take out any shed hairs, and coat my hair strands to prepair for the shampoo process. 
I sectioned my hair into 4 sections and proceeded to work in the shampoo. Immediately after applying the shampoo, I could feel a big difference in my hair, Strong, fortifying and repairing. While all of this was going on, my hair was still soft.  Because I felt like the shampoo did it's job initially, I did not proceed to use the hair mask or the conditioner the first time around. I didn't want to overload my hair with to much of a strengthening  product, which could potentially cause breakage.  I rinsed out the shampoo normally, and proceeded with my normal conditioning routine. 

This product is a thick, creamy consistency that comes in a 8.5 fl oz bottle.  For this bottle size, the cost is $20.00. This is very pricey, considering how much of the product you receive and how much you may have to use.  This depends on how much hair you have, the thickness and porosity. Other than the price, I give this shampoo a 4/5 stars. It does a great job of strengthening and repairing hair, while preventing breakage up to 98% after the first use! (As listed on the bottle)
This can be purchased at Ulta, and other hair care websites. 

Please comment, rate and subscribe! Reviews coming soon for the other carols daughter hair products. 
Thanks guys!

Guest Feature: Meet fellow natural Bianca!

1. Please introduce yourself!


My name is Bianca Young. I am 25, married and a mother of an outgoing little diva. A few things about me that basically sums me up; Proud Christian, I love serving & encouraging others (in ministry, church or community give back), family time (most of my weekends), fashion (my back ground is in visual art & fashion merchandise), I love to help people find items/looks/styles that enhances their wardrobes. I currently work at Express home office and outside of work in my creative zone; I collaborate with photographers, make-up artists, hair stylists and create style shoots or model look books. Last but not least, I am working on a site with my fashion partner that will have style tips, blog, natural hair channel, DIY, etc.



2. Why did you decide to go natural/ become chemical free?

I decided to go natural for one main reason, it was a fear of mine, sounds crazy right?! Well it wasn’t in my mind, I thought that if I went natural my hair would never get really straight again, and it would be a mess all the time. Of course no one should allow fear to control them from doing anything because 9 times out of 10 its false. So that gave me the green light to go chemical free! It’s been 4 years and I wouldn’t have it no other way!


3. How would you describe your natural hair texture?

My natural hair texture is type 3c – Curly Kinky Hair. Somewhat spongy when wet with a good conditioner in!  


4. Describe your most recent style regimen within the last month.

My most recent style that I’ve been wearing is a two strand twist out mixed with a few flat twist. I would keep that style in for about 2-3 days; adding a little oil, water and curl cream to keep it fresh.


5. What are your go to hairstyle(s)?


My go to hairstyles are full twist outs, half of my hair up in the back and the curly bang out in the front, last the natural bun!

6. Do you have a specific wash regimen?


I don’t have a regimen that’s a routine but I have different regimens that I do depending on what my hair needs at the time. Usually if I’m wearing it natural (not blown out) I would wash it once a week, shampoo if needed but mostly a co-wash with one of my favorite conditioners.


7. What are some of your favorite hair products?

Shampoo: Argan Oil by One & Only

Conditioners: Herbal Essence Honey I’m Strong, Argan Oil by One & Only.

Curl cream: Shea Moisture Enhance Smoothie,

Leave-In: Cantu Argan Oil leave-in conditioner or Design Essential leave-in

Oils: organic coconut oil, pure olive oil


8. Do you have any natural hair goals?


The first few years of going natural I didn’t have any hair goals, just for healthy hair. Now I would say it’s still to have thick healthy hair, but I do want to see more length by 2014 summer.

9. Do you have any advice for other new naturals or those aspiring to be natural?


The grass is definitely greener on the other side! Once you go natural it’s a lifestyle, more than the hair. I will be honest, when you first are transitioning over to natural it will be challenging and rough, but many trials and errors will help you better understand your hair and love it. Your hair is going through a whole new transition process, so it will take time and patience.The best thing to do is, tons of research! There is a worldwide natural community; hair blogs, YouTube (blessed my life), books, magazines, social network etc. Last but not least it’s not about length it’s about healthy hair; giving special TLC to what God has blessed you with! All natural hair types.


   10. How can you be contacted?


 I can be contacted personally 216-253-6023 or Social network: @1bianca/ twitter: @queenbabyb3. My business site/blog and info I’m working on,
