Natural Hair Product Review: Take Command Curl Defining Crème By Curls UnLeashed

Happy Tuesday. I wanted to give you the low down on a product I tried this weekend. It’s by Curls Unleashed, which is a line of products for naturals created by ORS (formerly Organic Root Stimulator). It’s called Take Command Curl Defining Crème. This is not a new product. I’ve tried it a couple of times during my natural hair journey. I struggled to figure out how to use it best in the past so I’ve never use it consistently. I got it to work…

2017 Product Review: Kerry Kosmetics

I decided this year that I want to purchase one product each week from a black-owned business. This is an important endeavor for me because I believe that BOBs are an important pillar in the black community. In a times such as these when retail stores like Macy’s, Sear’s, and K-Mart are fleeing low-income urban areas, it’s critical that we invest in the small businesses around us in order to survive. In fact, I believe that through the creativity and ingenuity of black entrepreneurship, we can ensure that…

New Natural Hair Products For My Kinky Hair

Product Review: Colossal Big Shot Mascara by Maybelline

.Maybe I’m beautiful. Maybe it’s Maybelline. That’s been me the last week. I got a complementary new Colossal Big Shot Mascara the company is promoting, along with their Master Precise Curvy Liquid Eye Liner. I was actually excited to receive it. That’s a surprise because I didn’t wear makeup for most of my life. Maybe a little eyeliner here and there in my late teenager years and early 20’s but nothing serious. I didn’t get interested in makeup until I turned 33. I really only…

Natural Hair Product Review: true by made beautiful

My stash was running low and I waited all of last week to get some new products. I wanted to try an entire line but I couldn’t decide which one. I wanted something I hadn’t tried before, maybe something that worked well for some of my Curl Friends on Instagram or in Facebook groups. I went to two Targets, a Walmart, a Meijer and two Sally Beauty Supply store before I finally set my eyes on “true by made beautiful”. I liked the label. The sea…

Today, I’m going to give you an updated version to save you time and money.First and foremost, if you are thinking about embracing the natural life,…

Natural Hair Product Review: New Styler

I tried a new styler yesterday and I must say I’m happy with the results. As I Am Curly Jelly works well. I used what I had on my stash to co-wash (Shea Moisture Professionals Cocoa Shea Co-Wash) and condition (Tresemme Botanique to rinse out, Design Essentials Natural Almond & Avocado Leave-In) my hair. I added the Curling Jelly while in the shower. I dipped my head under the water real quick then shake the excess water out. That’s funny but be careful if you…

Paradise On Earth – Natural Hair Product Review

Product Review – Paradise On Earth Organic Hair Repair Mask and 100% Organic Hair Growth Oil. I purchased these product online and am completing this review voluntarily. I wet my hair with warm water and sectioned it into three large parts. I divided each one into even smaller sections, applied the mask to every strand of hair, and then put my plastic bonnet on. I chilled for 15 minutes without heat then sat under the dryer for 15 minutes. I rinsed and then co-washed my…
