Hi Guys !
I know I have been sharing on the Facebook page that I was going to post all my footage from my microblading experience for you guys. I decided to wait till after my follow up appointment, because I want to be sure to provide all the necessary information. Healing time , what I went through emotionally and what the followup appointment fixed , if I had any thing I needed correcting. I’m going to post a few pictures so that you can get a slight idea. Everything is going great so far , I’m almost at a month mark, and I’m loving my results so far.
Here’s a pic of my eyebrows right after
Here is a pic of my eyebrows right now.
Amazing right ?! I can’t believe it neither. I wake up and shake my locs , put on lip glosss and a little eyeliner and bam , I’m finished. I have to say it’s worth the price , and honestly everything else. I won’t go into much detail , because I want to save all that for later , but make sure you research , research this before doing it. Always do your research ! If you have any questions or want to share your microblading experience , I’m listening. Share !
I’m sure that you have heard the craze about the newest beauty secret for a great smile, and you had questions about it. Activated Charcoal has been out for years, and people have been using it to whiten their teeth, and to lighten up scars . I decided to try it myself on my teeth to see how great the results would actually be. In the picture above it shows the brand that I bought with my own funds to test the product out. Make sure that you are using activated charcoal, not charcoal you use on the grill. This charcoal an be consumed , and the other cannot. YOU WILL GET VERY SICK from using the wrong one.
Tooth Brush (Preferably a dark bristled one because using white will look yucky)
A small cup ( To dump the charcoal and pour water in to make a paste)
Mouth Wash ( optional )
Unscrew 1 or 2 vegetable capsules and empty the charcoal into the small cup
Put only a small amount of water into the cup, enough to make a paste
Brush your teeth with the charcoal paste, and tongue
After you are finished brushing , with the charcoal still on teeth brush your teeth with your regular tooth paste
Be sure to brush your tongue as well.
Gargle with mouth wash once you’re finished
Here are the pictures of the charcoal on my teeth , and once I brushed them and used mouth wash. You will see results immediately , and will want to do this every day . This is my results after doing this two days in a row. The charcoal basically is a stain remover , and will pull all stains from your teeth. If you are a heavy coffee drinker, you will want to try this, because coffee does stain your teeth. I will be following back up with you all at the end of my bottle of charcoal so you can see how much of a whiting I got. If you decide to try this, let me know your results.
Hello Loves !
Happy Easter !
It has officially been 8 Months since I’ve had my Sisterlocks installed. How do I feel? I absolutely love them ! Yes , it has been ups and downs. I do not have a loctician , and decided to maintain my locs myself. I feel much closer to them , and the bond is amazing. Now , I’m going to be honest with you all. This scalp issue of mine makes me sooooo mad. I have done every thing I can think of to control this dry scalp , but it keeps happening. Yes , I drink plenty of water, also I have used all types of dandruff shampoos, still dry scalp. Now tell me , is it true that with sisterlocks this can last up to a year your first year ? It’s totally embarrassing sometimes to scratch. ” Excuse me , while I make it snow “. Lmao.
Well here are a few pics of my locs now
Major growth right? I know ! Lmao. I can not wait to see how long they will be August 13th 2017. I will officially be a year. I will make sure to come bk and post more. I have some major things I’ve been working on for the blog, it’s going to be fiyah!
Until next time ! Be Fabolous !
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.
How are you ? Hoping that you are Blessed and looking Fabulous! Over the weekend I installed box braids on my 5 year old daughter as a protective style. I used 3 packs of the Remi kankelon braid hair. I think I could had used 2 but my son that’s 3 started playing around and messed up the hair.
I made them large, because she’s only five and I wanted to make sure that she didn’t end up with a head of heavy braids , and look too grown for her age. Trust me , I know better. Lol.
Here’s a bit of advice for you if you have a child who cried when you just part their hair or comb it. It will be so much easier for you if you spray the section with water and then finger deranged the section.
It took me about four hours to do her hair because she kept taking breaks , but it should had only been a two hour job at the most.
I didn’t burn her ends, I decided to dip them in hot water and rod her ends. She’s so happy with her ” big girl braids” as she calls them, and I’m happy too because I don’t have to comb her hair for two weeks. Lmao. Hope this helps some moms out there that’s not sure if large box braids is appropriate for a child. She keeps them in a ponytail or two , so we are all good. Thanks for reading !
Love , Free
Hi guys ! How have you been? I know I haven’t been writing as much as usual, but it’s been so busy around here with my husband being deployed. I am excited to let you know that I did color my sisterlocks.
Yes! I know. Lmao. I’m hardheaded , but I was sure that nothing crazy would happen. I did not let my loctician know I was going to , because I was told I would have had to wait 8 months to a year to color my locs , BE has thus had to settle first. Soooooo, yeah. I got tired of the black and needed some color. I had to really decide on a color that I felt I would want to keep for at least a year because I didn’t want to keep switching colors with this Journey. I decided on my red/orange , brown and black ombré color.
I did not bleach my locs at all! You guys know how I am about using bleach , and I did use a semi parmenant color Adore. I did try the textures and tones first and it didn’t take , only had me looking crazy by the roots. Then I remembered , that color doesn’t work on my head. WOMP WOMP!
For real tho , I love my sisterlocks. This was the best decision I think I made. I was a free flowing natural for 4 years and a half , that journey had to come to an end, and it’s ok. I’m happy that I finally got my sisterlocks , and I plan on rocking the heezy out of them !
Please ! Please ! If you decide to get Sisterlocks listen to your loctician. Don’t be doing what I did , and then have the nerve to get mad at me if something happens. Lmao. I’m not the blame.
Hello my loves!
Here’s my video footage on my SisterLock install. It took three days for me to get 530 locks installed. My loctician name is Shawn, she’s the owner of All Tangled Up LLC , located in Stone Mountain GA.
I’ll be posting a video on my YouTube page going over the history of Sisterlocks, and how to take care of them soon. I hope you enjoy the video , I know I was extra but that’s because I was excited. Lol.
