New Product

Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Anti-Frizz Serum

Prices: Dollar General: $5 | Amazon: $6 | Walgreens: $6 | Walmart: $5 Target: $5
Promises: Get the most intense smoothing yet from sleek and shine anti-frizz serum. Now it locks out frizz for a full 3 days, even in a 97% humidity.
My hair is constantly dry and is always in need of moisture. I learned about serums and they tend to leave the hair very soft and smooth. I also wanted to find a serum that can minimize the fizziness with my hair.
The only serum that I found was the Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Anti-Frizz Serum. It is supposed to help with frizzy, dry, unmanageable hair. So far my hair really loves it but I’m going to wait to give it a review. Make sure you all check that out.

Mid Week

Co-Wash Day

This was done November 6, 2013

I decided to co-wash my hair today because my hair was sooooo dry and I wanted to take control of that. I thought that today was the day that I was going to try my Herbal Essence Totally Twisted Conditioner.

  1. I part my hair within 4 sections and fully saturated my hair with warm water then added HE TT Conditioner. I experienced that my hair had a lot of slip with this product!
  2. I proceeded to deep condition my hair using the LeKair Cholesterol Plus Strengthening & Conditioning Cream, EVOO and Hollywood Beauty Olive Cholesterol Deep Conditioning Crème. I left that on for an hour.
  3. I then used a microfiber hair towel to get the excess water. I added oil to my scalp then added 2 Leave-ins: Aussie Hair Insurance Leave-in Conditioner and Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Leave-in Cream and sealed it in with grapeseed oil.
  4.  I air dried my hair for an hour then blow dried once my hair was 50% dry.

[[[[The Overall Day?]]]]

The overall day, I’m beginning to like Herbal Essence Totally Twisted Conditioner! It had my hair really moisturized! But I’m beginning to dislike the LeKair Conditioner because it caused my hair to feel a little stiff. As for my hair, I just added some ECO Styler Gel to my edges and put my hair in a ponytail.


With Love,

Mid Week: Hair Heavy

November 4, 2013


As you all know, I washed my hair Friday using my Clarifying Shampoo. I oiled my scalp a day later using my Eucalyptus Oil, EVOO, Grapeseed Oil, Avocado Oil and Vitamin E Oil. I only put a little bit of that mixture on my scalp for the scalp massage. It made my hair feel very good and cool. But two days later, my hair feels very dry and my hair felt weighed down. My hands were covered with oil whenever I wanted to moisturize and seal my hair. I decided to skip the M&S session and I went to the shower to wet my hair to get some of the oil out. It really helped me!

Until next time,

Just Purchased

Herbal Essence: Totally Twisted Conditioner
I was shopping at Wal-Mart today just looking through the hair products and accessories and found some things that were on sale. When I say sale, I mean half off everything. Some of the hair products were Nexxus, Suave, Garnier Fructis and Herbal Essence. I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on a product but when I saw the price, I couldn’t let it go.

Price: $1.50
Purchased At: Wal-Mart
Promises: Twist & Shout: Lushly defined waves begin with a high-intensity moisturizing conditioner. It helps to remove the frizz factor and replenish vital moisturizers to keep your curls bouncy and beautiful.
Curls and Boys: You’ll have them wrapped around your finger in no time. Totally Twisted curl boosting mousse defies humidity to keep your shiny, springy curls bouncing.
This product is mainly for removing frizz and keeps the hair moisturized so that the curls stay bouncy and beautiful. I definitely want my frizz to be gone because every time I want a sleek look for my hair, the frizz takes over and my hairstyle is not the way I want it to look and I feel stupid.
I’m going to keep my hands crossed because I really want this frizz to be over with. Trust me, I really need this!
I tried to look at some reviews but I’ve only seen Natural ladies talk about this. I believe that this will work well for my new growth but we’ll see. I’m going to give this product a try, 3-4 times then I’m going to write a review.
Have you ever used this product? How did it work on your hair?

Wash Day

Clarifying Day!

Happy November Ladies <3

You all know what day it is….it’s the day to clarify my hair. I usually do this once a month but a second one may be needed if I experience a lot of buildup in my hair. That usually doesn’t occur.

Moving on…

  1. I clarified my hair using Ion Clarifying Shampoo. I made sure that my hair was fully saturated before applying. I feel as if I’m saving shampoo if I only apply it to my scalp and massaging it in using the tips of my fingers.
  2. Next I used my moisturizing shampoo to add some moisture to my hair by using Herbal Essence Hello Hydration Moisturizing Shampoo.
  3. My hair felt a little strippy so I decided to do a protein treatment. OMG I wish I never mixed these certain ingredients because it smelled so weird! I used Organics Hair Mayonnaise, ORS Replenishing Conditioner and actual mayonnaise. I don’t think I will use the mayonnaise because it smelled so weird to me after mixing everything together. I left that smelly concoction on my hair for 45 minutes.

  4. Once everything was washed out, I went to my deep conditioning session by using Hollywood Beauty Olive Cholesterol Deep Conditioning Crème, LeKair Cholesterol Strengthening and Conditioning Cream and EVOO. I wanted it to be a little liquid-y but it seemed as if the more oil I added into it, the thicker it became so I stopped trying. I left that mixture on for an hour.
  5. Finally, I did my ACV Rinse and I was finished in the shower.
  6. T-shirt dried for 30 minutes then added my leave in, heat protectant and some EVOO then proceeded to blow dry my hair on COOL hair. The reason why I keep on blow drying my hair is because the room was really good and I get sick quick so I didn’t want to mess that up due to the fact that I was sick not too long ago. After, I added some ECO Styler Gel to my edges and nape then wrapped my hair up.

[[[The Overall Day]]]

Overall, my hair is feeling okay. I forgot to mention that when I added my final deep conditioner, my hair felt a little stiff. It’s not too bad because my hair is still manageable. After adding my leave-in heat protectant and oil, my hair felt back to normal. I believe it was the LeKair that caused the entire ruckus but I’m not going to put the blame all on the product yet until I do a little more research and get a few more usage out of it. But besides that, my hair feels pretty good. The only thing that I’m still trying to work on is my frizz. I still don’t understand but the front of my hair is so frizzy that I cannot stand it anymore. I just don’t know what to do. I’m going to do some more research!
