Kat Von D Lock It Foundation

Have you guys heard about the Kat Von D Lock It Foundation? If you haven’t, shame on you! This foundation is every oily skinned person’s dream come true! The line has 30 different shades! Yes ! 30! This is a full coverage foundation, so yes it is buildable. Plus, its super matte, which is why I said it’s great for us who skin always look like we slicked on a can of oil. I went to the Sephora in my area to grab me a bottle , and to my total disdain, they were out my color. Yes! My reaction to this was totally in shock, because here you have a product line of 30 shades, and all they had in stock was literally two shades. Wow! Really?  

The makeup rep that assisted me said that we could still find my shade, and he would give me a sample to try at home. I was a little bummed, but I did want to make sure I purchased the correct shade later, because at $35.oo a bottle, you’re going to want the right shade. He tried the 71 Deep on me first, and that was way too light, and then he grabbed the 78 deep which he said was perfect. To me it was a tad too dark, but he promised me it was a perfect match. Before leaving he did hand me a tiny sample which is no where near enough to put on your whole face to test it out for a day. I made a Youtube video about the trip to Sephora, and posted it once I returned home. 

I have to admit that I went back on Youtube looking at more Lock It Foundation reviews . because I want to make sure that its worth me going through all the trouble of hunting down. I also checked online, and they were sold out as well. I guess alot of people need a color 78. Have any of you tried it? Did you like it? Let me know your thoughts.

I have a new and exciting product that I want to review . Now it’s really not new, but it’s new to my curls. It’s the Loreal EverCurl 6 in 1 Cleansing Balm.  Influenster sent me the product to review for free, and to give my honest opinion.

First off it did not have a strong fragrance , which I loved. I hate opening a product to begin sneezing like a nut. The pump in my opinion is too small, which means to get a nice amount of product you have to keep pumping continuously. The consistency is rich and creamy, which I like. It didn’t feel soapy (slippery and sticky). You get a nice small lather just to let you know it has a cleansing agent in it. Then the whole conditioning affect takes over, and you start feeling your hair softening up. Would I use the product again ? Yes! I actually want to try their other products in the EverCurl line now. You do receive a lot of product in the bottle too, so you won’t feel cheated. Try it! Then report bk to me how you liked it!

Kisses,

 

Kinkistry Hair Extensions 

Hi loves!

I’m so excited to bring this product review series to you all! It’s on Kinkistry Hair Extensions!  They have weft hair and clip ins that is very pretty much undetectable as being extensions. This hair is so close to our own curls it’s scary! Scary Good! You can pick between three different hair types. You have Koilistics which is for hair type 3b-3c , you have the Kurlgenics which is for 3c-4a, and lastly the Kinknetics clip ins for 4b-4c hair. Now each set comes in 10-28inches . That’s pretty cool because some companies stop at 22-24 inches. The color of the hair only comes in natural which is okay, because it’s 100% virgin human hair. YES! You can dye it!

The owner whom is Angela Fite’ is very professional , and is superb in customer service. I can’t even tell you how many questions I had , and she even gave me some tips on how to use the clip ins since this is my first set. I’m so happy that I chose this company.

CurlyFro Product Review 

Hiya! 

I know ! I know! It’s been a while, but you know how it is sometimes, you have every intention on doing something , then life says you’re too busy. Lol. Anyhow, guess what?! I got an awesome product review for you! 

Curly Fro was nice enough to send me three of their products to test and review for my blog. I appreciate them so so much! That package went through a lot to get to me , but it did and that’s all that matters. Let’s get into the review !  

 

Moisturizing Shampoo 

Size – 8 oz 

Fragrance – Peppermint 

Consistency – Creamy 

I usually don’t use shampoo, but when I do I make sure that it’s a moisturizing shampoo , so that I can make sure that it doesn’t strip my hair , and cause break offs.  This shampoo was wonderful! I made sure to apply the shampoo to my finger tips so I could distribute it on my scalp evenly  since I have braids as a protective style. I liked that I got peppermint since I looooove peppermint , plus it promotes hair growth. The shampoo was very silly feeling , and I could tell just from that , that it was indeed a moisturing shampoo. My scalp was very dry , because I hadn’t washed my hair in three weeks from when I got the braids installed.  

 

Here you can see the flakes in between the braids. I thought this was a perfect time to test these products out, because my scalp was bad off. 

Hot Oil Treatment  (Lockin and Shine Oil) 

Size – 4oz 

Fragrance – Mixed Oils 
The hot oil treatment wasn’t much of a surprise. If you use oils you know what to expect. So I made sure to wrap my hair in a plastic cap once I added the oils to my scalp. Instantly , I noticed how excellent the shampoo had worked on my scalp. There was so flakes left , and with the oil it did add a nice shine to my braids.  

 

I’m a bit nervous about my edges since I do have micros, and I said to myself ” let me put extra along my edges ” (that’s why it’s so shiny around my perimeter ) . I left the oils on my scalp for 20 minutes under the hair steamer and then rinsed. After rinsing my hair was still shiny ( which shocked me ), and my scalp was beautiful. 

  
 Promade 

Size – 4oz 

Fragrance – Smells like a fruity cherry 

After styling my braids back with a headband ,  I went ahead and applied the promade. I use a hard toothbrush to lay my baby hairs down , and this product actually didn’t hold them down , but it did cause then to curl up and shine. That’s not a bad thing, some promades will dry your hairs up , and then they’re dull and horrible looking. 

Products Overall Review 

I would definitely purchase these products myself. I haven’t heard too much about the company, but I believe that after you guys read this I will soon. The products smell wonderful , a little bit of each item I had goes a long way. I liked the fact that the fragrances wasn’t very strong , and the promade smells so good you want to taste it.  Please go check out CurlyFro. Let me know which products of theirs you tried. If you have any questions please don’t be afraid to ask.  Thanks again to Curly Fro for the wonderful products , and allowing me to review them.

Revisiting Clay

Terressentials

Hi Guys!

Even though I hadn’t been posting it doesn’t mean I hadn’t been trying things to share with you. If you remember from a past post I did a review on the Terressentials Lavender Garden Hair Wash. It’s actually a clay! We all know that clay washes are adorned by the natural hair community. Now, I have tried clay washes,and face scrubs from just about everyone and been left a little disappointed. My skin would look amazing for the first couple of weeks , and I’d be seeing large pores again. After rummaging in my hair boxes, yet again I stumbled upon my bottle of clay. It was still practically brand new! (Remember I’m A Recovering Product Junkie).

Let me start by saying that the clay is 100% natural. There are no harmful chemicals or ingredients in it that’s bad for you. Guess what I did? Yup! I put it on my face!

I let it sit on until it began to harden , and scared my youngest son to death. It was so funny , he thought I was a zombie ( no more walking dead for him). Anyhoo, I used a face sponge with water as hot as I could take to wash the clay off. The results were amazing! The blackheads came to the surface , and my skin was glowing! To me the results were better for my face than my hair! I have been using it so far for a week and my face is totally different . It’s looking healthier, softer and not oily.

So so everyone try it! Tell me what you think , and please be sure to comment below if you do . I used the Lavender remember, and be careful . Try an allergy test too.

Tell Your Curls To Spring Like Spring!

Happy Spring Everyone!

I am so excited for this season, because this is the time I start to get most of my hair growth. Plus I love seeing all the naturals wearing flowers in their curls, even if I hate wearing them in mine. Today was my protein treatment weekend, and I really needed it. I have just ended my protective styling week, and needed to let my hair breathe for a minute. I used my Aphrogee products as usual. If some of you all don’t know which ones I use , its the whole Reconstructor line. Its amazing!

After I rinsed out the reconstructor I had to shampoo, which I only do every six weeks after I use this. Next, I apply my moisture balance by the same company as well so that it can add the moisture back int my curls. Please follow the directions when using this products, because they will allow you to achieve the results you re aiming for, let’s hope that is shinier and healthier curls. I say the whole duration of this takes about a good 45 minutes to an hour for me, only because I do use my hair steamer , and hand dryer for some of the process. Once all this is done follow up with your oils, leave-in, moisturizer and or styler of your choice. Hope this helps!

Always,
