Quick Review|| Cantu Coconut Curling Cream

 

Hey Ya’ll!! It is very seldom that we like ( or in this case love) the same styling products. We have our own preferences when it come to styling our curls. The Cantu Coconut Curling Cream meets both of our needs. Here’s why…

 

Keeps hair moisturized

Lightweight and Creamy

Mixes well with our other products

Defines curls (twist outs and braid outs)

Frizz is at a minimum

Price is right ( $5.99)

 

 

This is our first product for Cantu and we are really interested in trying other things from them.

Stay tuned for more reviews!

Much Love,

Hey Y’all! Erica here and I wanted to give my first impression on Trader Joe’s Tea Tree Tingle Shampoo and Conditioner. This is my second time trying Trader Joe’s hair products and I’ve had my eye on this for a while.

 

 

First off I love the packaging. I think that it’s cute but simple. I had high expectations for this product because of my experience in the past; and it didn’t disappoint.

I love the consistency of the shampoo; it has a gel like consistency. For this to be a sulfate free shampoo the lather is on 10. But my hair didn’t feel hard or unmanageable. The conditioner is so lovely. It’s super creamy and my hair was so soft.

 

 

The smell is very light and not over powering. The “tingle” is very refreshing. It does not burn which is nice.

 

This duo is definitely will be apart of my clarifying regime. I will be repurchasing plus the price was pretty good.

Have you tried any of Trader Joe’s Shampoos and Conditioner? Which ones?

Much Love,

No Rules

No Rules

Hey Ya’ll! Every once in awhile we tend to vent… well, not “vent” but give our two cents when it comes to being natural. And lately what we have found is that there are so many rules. You can’t use this or that. If you use something that someone else doesn’t… there is a disdain look or comment. Not to mention if you decide to do something “drastic” like a big chop… it’s just way to many rules for something that is subjective.  You know your hair best and the only person that should dictate what is done to it is YOU (and your professional stylist if you have one). Sulfate or no sulfate, silicone or no silicone, whatever products you like, you use them and keep it pushing.  We have experienced this and a whole lot more and it’s quite interesting how people try and be the “Natural Hair Police”. We have decided to be Unapologetically Natural and you can too!

Whether your hair is wavy, curly, coily or kinky… Rock it and be Great!!!

Much Love,

Product Junkie???

Product Junkie???

Happy New Year Ya’ll !!! I know we have been M.I.A. but we started school and we had to figure some things out. Now we are back!!! Alright so being natural it is pretty much a given that you might become a product junkie.  There are so many  products out there that you almost want to buy them all. So here are our five ways that have helped us to not be product junkies.

1. Get rid of products that you don’t use.

You know that shampoo and conditioner that you bought from Trader Joe’s two months ago. That you only used once. Yeah… that is taking up space and wasting your hard earned money. Giving products that you don’t use to family and friends is a good way to rid yourself of those products you don’t use. It’s a win –win, You free yourself and they don’t have to pay for it.

2. Pick one or two products out of a line

Most companies have several lines under their name. So instead of buying the whole line pick a shampoo and conditioner, styling product or a leave in. This way you can try new things and if you don’t like it you can refer to number one!

3. Use products until the end.

I (Erica) am guilty of this.  I will have a product that is halfway full and I will go and buy another one. Especially if it’s on sale! But I don’t use certain products up quickly so it is unnecessary for me to buy the same product again.  Just use what you have until you are scraping the container.

4.Dedicate a section for your products

This will help keep the products to a minimum. Instead of a whole shelf or a whole cabinet, use half of the shelf or get a cute bin to house the products. This way only a certain amount of products can fit in that space and nothing more.

5. Stick to products that work

Lesley and I know that Shea Moisture works for us. If we want to branch out, we do that within Shea Moisture. This keeps us from buying products that potentially might not work and wasting money. If you want to try something new ask a friend, look at reviews or head to YouTube. See what other naturals are saying about that particular product.

When we first began our natural hair journey, we tried every product we could. But once we figured out what our hair loves and what it doesn’t like, we realized that having all those products hanging around was unnecessary.

Uhhh…The things us curly girls do for our tresses!!
