Review: 
WOW WOW WOW!! Okay ya! Where do I begin...I received this product from our friend at Blended Beauty and I have been using it non-stop since trying it. The Herbal Reconditioner is a deep conditioning treatment, and is the perfect detangler. I followed the instructions on the jar, I washed her hair. Then I applied this in sections all over her hair. Next, I put on a shower cap and let it sit for 20 minutes. Once the time was up, I started finger detangling and then combed using my wide tooth. Her tangles literally separated from one another, like magic...seriously...I think they put some special magical potion in their products haha. At first, I thought maybe this week she didn't have alot of tangles, so that's why it worked so well. But nope, that's not it! I used this for 4 weeks straight, and it never failed to amaze me. I'm finally starting to find the perfect products for N's hair, and Blended Beauty's Herbal Reconditioner is on the top of our growing list. I plan on ordering their complete line, and if you want to save -10% Off- your purchase use the code "curly" at checkout, I know I will! Thanks Blended Beauty!

TRIPLE GRO Satin with Built-In Growth Treatment Extra Large Bonnet: Product Review


I was browsing the hair section at my local Walmart. I lost my sleeping cap, and was taking a look at there selection. The TRIPLE GRO Satin with Built-In Growth Treatment Extra Large Bonnet <--say that 5 times fast! This particular sleeping cap caught my attention. It costs a little more than the other caps, but I wanted to put it's claim to the test.

Our luxurious satin fabric is impregnated with an anti-breakage growth treatment using a special pressure and vapor process. The result is dry and non greasy. Special active ingredients are released by natural body heat and gentle action of your hair against the smooth satin material. This revolutionary new product will actually condition and moisturize your hair with a built in anti-breakage growth treatment while you sleep.

Review: I have been using this cap for about 4 months. Now, you know I'm honest in my reviews. I didn't notice a change in my hair whatsoever. This cap was like a regular cap. -Sigh- Well, it was worth the try.

Braidout & Cornrows

Since school began, we still haven't quite got into the swing of things. We are always rushing out the door. One of the problems is hair time. I decided to style her hair on Sundays, and leave it in for the week, and then wash on Saturdays. Since we started doing this, we saved a good amount of time in the mornings. Here is our style for the week.


1.) I parted her hair ear to ear.

2.) Starting in the back of her hair, I wet it with our spray bottle and make 4 large braids. 


3.) In the front of her hair, I made a swirl part. I started the swirl from the front of her hair, going towards the center.

4.) I made a cornbraid around the swirl.

5.) I repeated step # 3 on the other side of her hair.

6.) Inside of the (2) swirls, I created 5 small cornbraids (starting from the left) going towards the center of her hair.

7.) I made 5 more cornbraids (starting from the right) going towards the center of her hair. -FYI: I did the opposite of step #6.-

8.) I gathered her hair from center of the swirl (total of 10 braids.) I combined them into one large braid.



9.) On the sides of her hair, I made two cornbraids going down towards her ear.

10.) I added some beads and combined the two braids.

11.) I did the same on each side of her hair.


12.) In the morning, I unraveled the 4 braids in the back and made a ponytail.

Approx Time: 1 hour

FYI: This style lasted 6 days.

Products Used:
Spray Bottle
Beads
Shea Moisture- Curl Style Milk
Darcy Botanical Coconut & Hibiscus Oil Spray (for shine.)

25 Mins Or Less Style: Braids & Beads

We are back! and with a quick easy school style, for all of those busy Moms out there!
We were rushed for time between her extracurricular activities. I decided to do this quick style and add beads for flair. 


Just two ponytails, braids and beads.


She loves the sound of beads clicking lol. 




Send me a email if you would like to have the step-by-step instructions on how to do this style.

-Edited: I did this style on Monday, and took it out Saturday morning, before I washed it. I maintained it by applying moisturizer (shea moisture) and smoothing it on. Also every other day, I rubbed my homemade shea butter mix on her hair, to seal in the moisturizer. Then I used eco styler gel, to smooth her hair down around her edges and into the ponytail. At night I removed the white hairbows and put on her sleeping cap. On Thursday her hair was a little dry, so I sprayed on the braids Darcy Botanicals Coconut&Hibiscus Oil Spray for shine. 

Homemade Headband Holder

I stole borrowed this idea from our friend BeadsBraidsBeyond lol. I was sick and tired of N's headbands taking up so much space in her hair bow organizer. 



It was very easy to make.
You will need:
 -A large container (oatmeal/peanut)
- Crayons (for decorating)
-2 sheets of paper
-Tape or glue




N helped me make it, this was our little weekend project. I had her color on the two sheets of paper. When she was finished, I used some tape, to tape the paper on the container. Then, she went and put all of her headbands on it...the end...
Very simple! 
There was still some that wouldn't fit, so we put them inside of the container. Mine didn't come out as nice as Beadsbraidsbeyond, Im crafty-challenged :/ but it was fun spending time with N, and that's what counts.

How do you store your headbands?

Denman Brush Review


I was given the opportunity to review Denman Brushes. Thanks to our friends at Denman! When I first started our hair journey, I heard a few women on Youtube mention the brush. My first purchase was a Denman brush on Amazon. The one I ordered was rather small, and back then I didn't know how to properly detangle. So just imagine, a woman combing her child's DRY hair, with no conditioner, no moisturizer, and just some grease, with a small comb and alot of hair. Well, if you did imagine it, that was shamefully me! I put the brush away, and went back to a wide tooth comb, out of frustration. 

Here is a video of a woman who had a similar experience her first time using the Denman Brush.


 (I'm the type to make make expressions, you can look at my face to see my thoughts lol, just like her.)


Fast forward a year later, I decided to give it another try. Denman sent me a few brushes to try. I tested the lemon scented brush through N's hair. Her hair was wet, with plenty of conditioner, I fingered detangled first, and Ta-Da!!! -light bulb went off- The brush just glided through her hair! Like a dummy, it wasn't the brush, it was me! Once I learned how to properly comb her hair, detangling became smooth sailing. My advice: for any product or tool, wait a few months, and revisit the product. Sometimes things are better the second time around.


N, loves the Lemon Scented Brush, and the Tangled Tamer! We did not modified it, no need to, her hair did fine with the way it is. So now Mr.Wide Tooth Comb, has been shelved (poor wide tooth.) But Denman is our new favorite tool! After using it for over a month, the lemon scent is still there! I love to just sniff her brush! Okay, I sound weird....

-For the entire month of November we are giving away a Denman Brush! We are starting off with a gift for the little babies, so if you have, or know someone, who has a infant daughter, come enter (click here) it will make the perfect Christmas gift, or stocking stuffer.
