Staple Hair Products For My Relaxed Hair Regimen

 The second part of my current hair regimen is a list of the products I will be relying on to maintain it.  These are technically my current favorites.  But more than half of them have been a part of my hair care routine for YEARS, which is why I labeled them my staple hair products.

design essentials for relaxed hair

Last year, I randomly decided I wanted to try a hair regimen that contained all one brand.  And even though I had never tried Design Essentials before, the fact that a few of their products were specifically geared to relaxed hair made me choose this line.

Reviewing Shea Moisture Intensive Hydration Masque ...What's Next?

It’s time for a product review! I’ve been using Shea Moisture Intense Hydration Hair Masque from their Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil line for several weeks.  I bought it almost 3 months ago and it’s been in my weekly deep conditioning rotation ever since.  I’ve been able to compare and contrast its results with other products in my stash,

January Favorites | Hair & Acne Care Edition

It’s the end of the month and the perfect time to run down some of my January favorites.  Some of these favorites won’t surprise you, but some of them are new products.  It’s mostly hair care products (of course) but the last item is a skin care product that literally turned my skin around.  I went

I've Been Shopping... Hair Product Haul Time!!

Hey Guys! It has been a while since I’ve posted a video to my YouTube channel.  To fix that, I posted my first Hair Product Haul video today.  I don’t normally do these, but recently I’ve been purchasing a lot.  And once I realized how everything was piling up on me, it was a no

What's In My Beach Bag?

Last weekend was Memorial Day weekend.  Did you enjoy the first unofficial weekend of summer?  We didn’t do much of anything thanks to tons of rain, but I’m looking forward to a re-do.  I’m preparing for a beach trip and as I pack things for our days at the beach, I decided I’d share what I carry in

5 Smart Strategies for Improving Your Skin Care

You may or may not have realized, but I am almost as obsessed and regimented about my improving skin care as I am with my hair care.  It all started with acne scars in my mid 20s aka hyperpigmentation.  Since then I’ve been very deliberate about the things I use in my skin care routine.
