3 Protective Styles to Try this Winter!

If you are in located in the Northeast area of the US like I am, you understand that Mother Nature has not been to kind to us in the last couple of weeks. The up and down temperatures along with record breaking lows, ice and blizzards have left searching Timehop for sunny days and wondering if we’ll ever get back to that happy place again. Not only is this weather depressing to the psyche— It can also be depressing for our hair.

While it is very important to keep your hair moisturized in these harsh temperatures, you also want to give it a break every once in awhile. I have three protective styles that are fun, versatile and so I have heard are very easy to install on your own.

There are tons of YouTube videos and visuals floating around the internet on how to do these styles. They may take some time but since we’re all pretty much stuck in the house anyway— why not try these out!? Lol

Naturalistas on the Red Carpet #OscarEdition

The 87th Academy Awards ceremony, presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, honored the best films of 2014 and took place tonight, at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. Everyone looked stunning per usual but I would like to point out the Naturalistas that were spotted working the carpet. These two women are never shy about rocking their hair all natural in front of and off the camera.

Did these ladies work it or what!?

PRODUCT REVIEW–Homegrown Naturals of CT: Herb Infused Hot Oil Treatment

A couple of months ago while browsing my Instagram Feed, I came across Homegrown Naturals of CT’s page. In addition to pictures of beautiful women sporting beautiful textures, I noticed that she was in fact sending out free samples of an all natural hot oil treatment. Being the product junkie that I am and not to mention I have a hard time retaining moisture because of my thick strands, I contacted Daliah and she was all too happy to send me a sample!

Not even a week had passed when I came home to find a cute little package stuffed in my mailbox! I tore that package open so fast and sat it on my dresser because I was definitely not going to forget to include it in my morning regimen. I love a good scalp massage on the daily and this oil quickly became my number one pick! This hot oil treatment has 5 different oils, 3 essential oils, and 3 herbs. These oils and herbs are penetrating to the hair follicle and promote growth. The ingredients include: castor oil, olive oil, safflower oil, avocado oil, grape seed oil, lavender oil, rosemary oil, peppermint oil, lavender flowers, rosemary leaves, and chamomile flowers.

Every morning I spray my hair with my trusty spritz bottle of water, apply a generous amount of the herb infused oil to the tips of fingers and massage it into my scalp for about five minutes. Research has shown that massaging your scalp daily can promote hair growth and I am all for that! Before using this oil I have to tell you guys that my scalp was always extremely dry.. Like flaky dry. If i shook my head too fast, snow would fall sometimes. This particular oil definitely helped that to the point where I have minimal to no flaking AT ALL! The oil has a slight but not overpowering scent and it tingles a bit once it touches your scalp. I am sad to say that I am all of it but I will definitely be ordering more soon!

To order this product click on the picture below! Email her, tell her that I sent you and use the code: SKREV for a BOGO 1/2 OFF!! You will not be dissappointed.

Did I go all natural like I contemplated in a previous post? HELL NO! Once those contractions I quickly and very aggressively very nicely asked to have that big long needle stuck in my back. No shame here! 😊

So on top of being a mommy to a very curious six year old and now a one month old– I am very exhausted and BLESSED but I have not had time to post. Have I been itching to get back? Of course! I have so much new content to share and a revamp is coming for the blog site. Im so excited to share these things with you in the near future!

Peace.
