What is Co-Washing???

July 10, 2013

Okay y'all guess what I have done... I have jumped on the bandwagon of co-washing! I absolutely love it! But wait I'm sure some of you don't even know what that is???
Co-washing is conditioner washing... yup it's just cleansing your hair with conditioner rather than shampoo. This method is perfect for colored, dried damaged, natural, and course hair. I love co-washing because it minimizes color damage, since conditioners don't contain harsh hue-stripping sulfates, and adds the right amount of hydration to strands, cutting down on frizz.

I am currently using Ojon Damage Reverse conditioner to co-wash because I have bleached hair...
This lush, concentrated daily conditioning balm doesn't just sit on the surface. It actually surrounds dry, brittle hair with nourishing lipids including pure Ojon™ oil, nature's golden elixir, Brazilian Buriti Oil and Murumuru Butter. It also helps seal in vital moisture and create the perfect buffer against daily damage. Instantly detangles. 


well as always I hope this helps!!!

Natural Hair: Defined Curls

July 10, 2013

Due to my hair being bleached, I decided to go natural!  So I had to figure the best way to define my curles without using a texturerizer.

I must have found the right product because everyone wants to know what I use and where they can get it.

Well honey I use.... Eco styler Olive Oil Gel
Eco Styler Olive Oil Hair Gel is a non-flaking, maximum hold styling gel the was specifically developed for African-American hair but is ideal for all hair types as well as synthetic hair! The same incredible hold as the Krystal Hair Gel but with the additional moisturizing properties of 100% pure olive oil. This hair styling gel offers maximum hold, deep conditions, adds radiant shine, incredible body and volume, and is water based as opposed to alcohol based, which provides moisture to maintain healthy hair.

Home Remedy

Baking Soda + Honey + Water = Face Brightening Cleanser

July 07, 2013

Okay fresh face beauties here is a good ol' home remedy that I haven't giving you guys in a while...
Get you some money and throw in a little baking soda for a scrub.  Doing this helps boost circulation but doesn’t tear off your top layer of skin.
Here’s how to do it: Combine one tablespoon of honey with one teaspoon of baking soda in your palm. Rub them together with a few drops of water and then massage gently in circular motions on your face. Let sit for a minute then rinse thoroughly with warm water.
I promise if you do this you have beautiful glowing skin.
