Unboxing: November Curlkit

November is over! Wow, that was fast right? I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving, mine was amazing.  Nothing like being entertained by a 2 y.o performing every scene from the Temptations movie. Always a great time.

But for the post. Even though November is over, it is time to share with all of you and unbox in a way my November Curlkit. I get so excited about my CurlKit when it comes, it just feeds the product junkie inside. For $20 a month I can try all kinds of products at once!

So what did I get...I got my four regular size products and a few sample sizes. Also as always my Curl Life, which is a mini pamplet on each product, editors notes and a couple of stories. Love it.

Just to talk a little about the full size products:

Kandy Kurls Lemoncello Daily Refresher: It is a mix of Shea Butter and Aloe Vera. It is used to keep your hair refreshed all day.

ORS Uplifting Shampoo: It has nettle, menthol and horsetail in it. It cleanses and removes dirt and build up from the hair and scalp.

ORI Essentials Moisturizing Leave In Conditioner: It contains avocado oil and wheat germ oil. Keeps curls soft and frizz free.

Haute Textures Organic Shea Butter Shampoo: Contains tea tree and peppermint oil. It is a sulfate free shampoo that stimulates and revitalizes the scalp.

Overall I was happy with this curlkit. I will be posting reviews on the products I have used, I will also post the link so you can begin to get your own CurlKit. 

Let me know if you have tried any products listed above and what you thought about them. 

Until the next post...

Washing Your Box Braids

So you decided that you wanted box braids as your winter protective style. Good choice btw. But once they're in, your stuck with the choice to wash or not to wash.

I have now had my box braids in for about three weeks or so and aside from my new growth, they are holding up just fine. Protective style or not, you must maintain a healthy clear scalp, but how was I to do that without making my braids look like a hot mess? Youtube of course!

Below is a vid I found on how to wash your braids without making them a frizzed out mess. It works. I also do my conditioner this way.

Check out the vid. Let me know this method works for you. Let me know if you have your own way of washing your braids without them becoming frizzy.

Review: The WAH Nails Book of Downtown Girls

When I got the email to review The WAH Nails Book of Downtown Girls (book2) I was excited. I am a true fan of nail art and WAH Nails has not failed me yet.

Book 2 is a little more in depth than book 1. It gives more tips on how to be a successful blogger to what you should have in your nail kit. Book 2 does still offer step by step instructions on how to create their nail arts.

How easy are these nail art to recreate, I am by no means an expert and I can recreate them. Of course they are not as good as the WAH Nail girls themselves, but they I like them.

As much as I am obsessed with WAH Nails, I am a little disappointed that they are solely based out of the UK. Yes, they are a UK based company which means all their supplies are based there too and last I checked they weren't shipping to the US. Oh did I mention supplies? Yes, WAH Nails has available (to my UK readers) nail art pens/paint, sticker sheets(which some are included in book 1) t-shirts, nail wraps and of course book 1. Book 2 will be available to order worldwide on September 10th, but I am going to give you a sneak peak inside book 2 as well as which of the nail arts I am currently wearing.

Review: Agadir Aragon Oil

I was sent about a week ago, some products from the Agadir line. Now I had never used this line prior to receiving these products. It may not be a new product line for some, but it is to me. So lets get right into this review.

Hair: Shea Moisture

Let's just go on record to say that I am loving all things (at least what I have tried) Shea Moisture. I am trying two new products, not new to the line, new to me. This is not gonna be a review as much as it is me talking about what I like about these products. *PRODUCTS WERE PURCHASED WITH MY OWN MONIES.*

The first product is Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Foaming Milk & Body Wash. This stuff is the bomb. A little goes a long way. It gives good lather and the smell is good. No it doesn't smell like Play Do if you were wondering. I haven't tried it in the tub as a foaming milk bath, only in the shower and this is my new thing. I had been back on bar soaps since coming home from Basic, up until then I had use body wash, but all we could have, all the PX sold was bar. After trying the bar version of this I was done with my old bar soap. But this body wash, I am done with bar soap period. Yes it is that good, that I won't go back to bar soap. It leaves my skin soft and it feels moisturized. I purchased this at Walgreens for $9.99, but I think it was on sale two for something, I can't remember.

The second product is Shea Moisture African Black Soap Deep Cleansing Shampoo. I had been eye balling this shampoo for a minute so I FINALLY decided to buy it. I don't know why, but I was kind of worried it would have some kind of smell that wasn't right, but to my surprise it didn't. The scent was very pleasant. This is a sulfate free shampoo. I always love when a sulfate free shampoo gives you suds like a sulfate shampoo. I know some females worry about cleansing, they associated suds with cleansing. You don't need suds to get clean hair, but if you're looking for a sulfate free shampoo that will lather up then this is your product. My hair felt clean, it didn't feel stripped or dried out. I will say that if you are expecting a thick creamy shampoo, then this is not your stop. Again, I do believe this was on sale. But regular price is $9.99 which at bad for such a great product.

Overall, I have been very happy so far with all of the Shea Moisture products that I have tried. I do intend to try all the other products in the line.
