My hair care Regiment….

So because this feels like a fresh start for me, why not talk about my staple hair care routine. NOTE: I am not perfect when it comes to my hair & I do slack off from time to time.
My choice of products are my babies lol, I don’t think I am ever going to change them up unless I feel they are not working for me anymore. I know I have mentioned my hair care routine before but lately I have been getting a lot of questions on my Instagram about what I do & use on my hair. As of July 3 I got my ends trimmed/cut but I guess between then & now because I have been trying to treat my hair better it is growing a whole lot faster & I think my ends need to be trimmed AGAIN ! Now that I summed that up here goes my routine…..
I try to do my hair on Sunday or Monday just because it’s the start of the week
If I decide to wash my hair I will use the Jamaican Black Castor Oil Shea Moisture Shampoo

SheaMoisture-Jamaican-Black-Castor-Oil-Shampoo Seriously guys this is heaven in a bottle !! No stripping, easy lathering….my husband even says he loves it!

For conditioning I will alternate between these two :

300

organix-biotin-collagen-conditioner-220

But if I am co washing I will forever use my

0038151905333_500X500 holy grail ! Also this is something I would use as a leave in when I don’t feel like doing my hair at all.

Now for my styling products, I will just say I love every single one of these items…

I use a little amount of each one of these products because I don’t want my hair to feel heavy or dirty.

Now the last product that I will list is something I will alternate on the side if I run out of my shea moisture products or if I just happen to grab while doing my hair.

ecostyle If I don’t want to go through the process of taking forever I will use this to style with, twist outs, braid outs, or just pulling my hair up

I basically tried to stick to one brand mostly & shea moisture & my hair are best friends for life !

Please keep in mind that these products work for me ! It may not work for you. So please don’t go buy all of these at least try out 1 at a time.

Allow me to reintroduce Myself…

I have been absent from my blog for about 3 months now. For a second I did loose interest in blogging because I felt like I had to just stick to certain topics, mainly because that’s what I noticed other bloggers doing. But that is not who I am, I have never been the one to follow someone else, especially because we are not the same people. But I am back !! One thing I have learned is, this is my blog I write what I want to & I can post anything I want to. So starting fresh my blog will be about fashion, hair, food, lifestyle, different topics pretty much whatever I feel the need to when I sit down to blog ! I am not knocking any other bloggers who want to stick to one topic or two because that’s their blog & maybe its something they feel strong about doing. So all & all I am back and I hope to gain more traffic visiting my blog.

This past weekend my husband & I went on a couples retreat down at the beach. Our Villa was so nice & peaceful and the weather was just great. This particular day it was a little nippy so I was able to put on my trousers I purchased from Forever21. I went for a comfortable look because we were gonna be sitting in a room for about 2 hours & 30 min for a couples session. I plan to style the pants different next time but I liked the outfit for this particular day.

A Simple Braidout..

Image

Just wanted to quickly share this easy braid out that I achieved with just TWO simple products & only 9 braids.

Products used : Water & the curl enhancing smoothie by shea moisture.

To keep my braids neat I wore a silk bonnet to bed & after taking them down to keep the style I pulled my hair up in a pineapple, if you want you could just braid it back up its totally up to you.

Hope you guys enjoyed my results just as much as I did.

My staple products on my natural hair…

Image

 

To start off these are the products that I use on my wash days.

1. I co wash my hair using the As I am Coconut CoWash twice, I love the feeling that it has while massaging the scalp of my hair. While using this product I tend to get scared because it is very runny and it could be very easy to waste the product.

2. Using the Argan oil luxurious conditoner I apply all over but I always add more towards the ends of my hair because it helps with breakage & damage ends. This product smells very good !! I love it so much

3. Moving on to the Aussie conditioner, sometimes I will co wash with it but mostly I use it as a leave in ! My hair will be very soft & moisturized. This Aussie conditioner is my LIFE.

4. Last I try to deep condition my hair at least every week. But no longer than two weeks. Its very thick but it gets the job done.

These two styling products are my true ride or dies (lol)

If I am styling my hair when using the eco styling gel I WILL NOT leave in any conditioner because my hair will look like snow.

But overall these are my go to products & I hope you enjoyed.

Mini Walgreens haul…

So yesterday I went to my favorite drugstore, which is obviously Walgreens ! 

I just wanted to go in & pick up these few things.

First thing I picked up was two of the Freeman feeling beautiful masks, my reasons for picking these two in particular is because I have heard a lot of great things about these specific two & these two were were talked about the most in every beauty youtube video I have watched. They both were $4.19 a piece.

1.Facial Clay Mask (Avocado & Oatmeal Rich clays dive deep to purge dirt & oils from pores. Nutrient – rich vitamin e. Avocado and oatmeal moisturize for lasting skin softness. Perfect for normal to combination skin.

2.Facial Peel-off mask (Cucumber)  A super cooling, skin-quenching mask that gently peels away impurities that can cause skin to be rough and dull. Contains cucumber extract and aloe to soothe while moisturizing, ensuring skin feels soft and silky-smooth after every use. Perfect for normal to combination skin.

I definitely will be adding these to my skin care routine. I already have a post up for that and I also added A&D ointment as well. 

The next thing I purchased was some moisturizing bath beads, just because I love how my water turns to an ocean blue and the soft feeling it has on your skin while bathing. Purchased for $1.99

Another item I purchased for my bath is the village natural therapy stress & tension relief mineral bath soak for $5.99

The last thing I purchased was the quenched sea mineral moisture surge deep treatment. I wanted to try another deep treatment besides the shea moisture one I already have just because. I just used this today and so far my hair felt pretty good. Also it’s cheaper than shea moisture so maybe if I don’t feel like paying $12 for a deep conditioner this could be an alternative. $5.49

Like I said it was a mini haul & I hope you guys enjoy :)

BH Cosmetics Makeup Haul (SALE)

So about two weeks ago Bh cosmetics had a sale (as always) and I took advantage of buying some palettes for $12.95 for TWO  palettes. Being that you have to spend $50 for free shipping I just ordered a few more things. I came across the pretty 11 piece Pink-A-Dot brush set, which I have heard a lot of people raving about & I also needed some new brushes so I purchased the set for $25.95. The last few things I got was the waterproof lip liners in Rouge, Retro, & Nude. Briefly about those I used the nude one first and it broke as soon as I applied it on my lip. But for me I always apply lip pencils all over my lip so maybe I shouldn’t have done that because it’s not as strong enough like a pencil would be. Last I just threw in a liquid eyeliner because I need more practice with it & I always use a gel liner.

So that is what I purchased & I cant wait to put these palettes to use. OH I have used my brushes, they are AMAZING & very soft !

Have a great day,

Destane :)
