5 Tips to Deep Conditioning

PADDINGTON

Hey Ya’ll! Deep conditioning is one of the most important things in a hair regimen whether you are natural or not. But it can be a problem if you don’t use it correctly. Here are 5 tips that can guide you into deep conditioning.

What is deep conditioning?

Deep conditioner is a conditioner that helps to add moisture, manageability and elasticity.

This conditioner can be left on the hair from 5 min to 40 min depending on the brand.

Tip #1 Choose the right deep conditioner

Whatever shape your hair is in ( natural , dry, lacking protein etc.) there is a deep conditioner for you.

Tip #2 Apply correctly

When you apply your deep conditioner, you want to make sure that every strand gets coated. You want to apply  it to  your shaft and ends not your scalp.

Tip #3 Don’t leave it in too long

Every deep conditioner has a time that is has to stay on your hair. Make sure that you follow the directions. Leaving it on for hours or overnight doesn’t make it work any better.

Tip #4 Rinse with cool water

When you rinse your deep conditioner out with cool water it closes the cuticles of your hair and it keeps in the moisture and nutrients from the deep conditioner.

Tip #5 Be consistent

This is very important. Whether it’s once a week or every two weeks, whatever works for your hair do that.

We hope that these tips can guide you to productive deep conditioning!

Much Love,

Hey Y’all! Erica here and I am so excited to share this cleansing brush. I came across this brush on Pinterest and I wanted to try it.

The Run Down

♥ Budget Friendly ($ 7.99)

♥ Small and good for traveling

♥ Two speeds (High and low)

♥Easy to clean brush head

♥ Simple to use

 

My only “con” is that there wasn’t an extra brush head that came with it. You have to order them online. But they are 2.99 sooo… it’s okay!

♥ Dark spots are lightening up

♥ Skin looks nice and smooth

♥ Pores look smaller

You Are Beautiful

You are beautiful
Song of Solomon 4:7
” You are all together beautiful, my darling, beautiful in every way”
God made us in his own image. We are beautiful in our own way and as women we have to see that. Your outside appearance will fade but your inner beauty will last. We should always walk in confidence, grace, and beauty. See yourself as God sees you!

SheaMoisture||Weightless Serum Foundation Review

COPENHAGEN

Hey Ya’ll! We are back again with another review. We have been wanting to try SheaMoisture foundation and it’s pretty awesome!

2017-04-26 05.25.05 2

Texture

This foundation has the texture of a serum. It’s super light weight and thin.

Coverage

A little goes along way with this foundation. If you apply too much at one time it will look cakey. It’s buildable and if you need more you can add more. We use a makeup sponge to apply this and it works well.

Shades

SheaMoisture has a variety of shades in this foundation. So whatever shade you are, there is a foundation for you.

Packaging

It. Has. A. Pump. This is so helpful because you are less likely to spill this all over the place. Especially if you are in a rush.

Price

The price is 14.99.

The only negative thing is that it can make you little oily so you have to set it.

Flee from Temptation

Flee From Temptationwww.curlscurveschic.cm

2 Timothy 2:22-24

“Run from anything that stimulates youthful lusts. Instead, pursue righteous living, faithfulness, love, and peace. Enjoy the companionship of those who call on the Lord with pure hearts. Again I say, don’t get involved in foolish, ignorant arguments that only start fights. A servant of the Lord must not quarrel but must be kind to everyone, be able to teach, and be patient with difficult people.”

Temptations come at our weakest moments in life. It looks good and harmless but it’s very deceiving. When we find ourselves in God, he can help us to stay away and lead a righteous life. The people that we hang with can lead us down the wrong path so we have to be strong enough to say no and not be pressured into sin. We have to show the love of God and not get caught up in the foolish things of this world.

Much Love,
