Hey Y’all!!! I know it’s been a while, but I am back!! And I have a review to give you! So over the past couple of months I’ve been using Zelo Professional Keratin Shampoo and Conditioner for cleansing my hair. I love the products! They moisturized my hair very well! Zelo is sold in Target as well as on line! Check out my video review below.

As many of you know, I am a DIE-HARD CurlBOX supporter! Every since I could get on the (which like many of you took some time), I have faithfully been charged $20 a month and received an amazing curlBOX full of all kinds of delicious goodies for my hair! I’ve received 8 boxes (July to February), in addition to shopping the cB Black Friday Sale. Within that time I am proud to say that I have found soooooo many products that I LOVE. These are products that I will purchase after I run out vs. waiting on my next box to see what new items I will get, so… I canceled my subscription to curlBOX. I firmly believe that this company is about helping women of color try the best products out there for our hair, whether relaxed or natural. But, it is also about helping you find what works…

Hello everybody!! I trust that you all had a very happy Thanksgiving! I enjoyed spending the quality time with both side of my family under one roof! We played games, watched the game, ate, laughed, slept…it was wonderful. Anywho…this past weekend I had the pleasure of doing my first tutorial for my Thanksgiving hairstyle, the Twisted Bantu Knot-Out. I received so many good comments and so much feedback from this hairstyle. Everyone was asking how I did it and what I used. At the time, I didn’t think to make a video for it. Then, on Black Friday, I had the opportunity to attend the curlBOX Black Friday Sale. That sale was MONSTROUS!!! And I mean that. I received over 13 FULL-SIZED PRODUCTS plus samples all for the price of the monthly curlBOX – $20! It was at the event, where I receive even more comments from ladies at the event about…

So let me just start off my saying that this was a BLESSING!!!I got a message on instagram on this picture and it say to contact curlBOX about a shoot! I screamed! I really did. and the rest was history…. This past Sunday me, CharyJay, and Ebony were at Beya Salon Studios for the curlBox Holiday shoot for the December mimi mag! Call time 10 am! 9:45am – I arrive and struggle to figure out how to get into the building (mostly me), along with the videographer and his assistant. The we realize one door is locked and the other is not…guess which door I pulled on…. 10:00am – Ebony arrives….my goodness she’s pretty! Danielle (hair stylist) arrives – she my homie! 10:30am – Myleik arrives with Chary (she drips with swag) and the fun begins. Malika (make-up) arrives as well! She had on these black sequin pants that were…

So in my world wind of activities, I totally forgot to do a post about the P3 Lab event hosted by Mimi J., which was spectacular might I say! It was a tea party! I don’t think I’ve ever been to a tea party before – except for the ones with my stuffed animals….and I’m pretty sure that doesn’t count….  Anywho, on August 19, I dragged my bestie Tiffany to the P3 Beauty Tea at Studio Wed, to support another friend, Maeling aka Natural Chica!  She, Mimi J (Make-up Artist, P3 Lab), Alexandra Butler (Make-up Artist), and Mattie James of Mattieology (Fashion Blogger) co-host this lovely meet and greet/networking party for other local bloggers of similar trade!  We actually got to meet and talk with these lovely ladies.  There were finger foods, delicious mini cupcakes and candies, and the best part of all GREAT TEA, sponsored by Soren Tea!!  Most…

One of the biggest challenges many of us will face is getting our hair to grow longer! I personally suffer from OMG! It’s Not Growing Syndrome. Many of you probably do to! The symptoms include: Staring obsessively in the mirror Dreaming about longer hair Constantly stretching your hair with you finger to see if has grown since last night Avoidance of hair washing for weeks due to possible tangling Trying any product that claims to see stronger, longer hair in a few days Product Junkiness You get the point! We all have gone through this stage. The one thing I took from going through all this, and after consulting with beauticians and friends, is that you must protect the ends. Yes, hair goes through phases of growth, loss, and dormancy, but these are not the main determinants of hair length. Besides genetics, water and proper nutrients, the best way to…
