Hair Care


Be it Summer or Winter, our hair seems to crave moisture! AND….the tighter the curl, the more moisture you need. For me, it seems that my hair can never get enough, so today I’m sharing my top fave ways to get and retain moisture. These are in no particular order because all of them are important!!! 1. Use moisturizing products.  I love products that are water based and moisture rich!  And for me, it begins with my shampoo.  I use a clarifying shampoo to clean my scalp and remove product from my strands as well as moisturizing shampoo.  Clean hair ensures that I am giving my hair the best possible chance to receive moisture.  Using hair lotions/moisturizers and butters or oil to seal in moisture, give me the the upper hand in the battle of dry hair! 2.

My first official post of the new year!!!!  I’m so excited!!  Well, let’s jump right in! For about a month and a half, I’ve been taking the Manechoice Manetabolism Plus Vitamins.  Not only are they hair vitamins, but they are a full blown multivitamin!!  You get the best of both worlds with these pills.   I wanted to try the vitamins and track my hair growth to see how well they worked in comparison to other vitamins that I have tried in the past.    So far, I am please and you will see why shortly. What sold me on purchasing this company’s vitamins versus others was that the is a Black Female-owned company!!  Take a look at my hair history, beginning length, and my 1 month update in the video below!  Under the video are side-by-side pics to show you the growth.  Tell me what you think!

After almost 1 1/2 years, I actually went to a salon and got my hair done! I hate going to salons because I hate waiting for ever to get my hair done… Anywho, thanks to Natural Chica’s last video of her Too Groovy Salon experience, I decided to check them out.

Tired as crap, I went and here is the result of my experience… Here are the pictures of my trim before the curls…. After Curls… …
