The Best Heat Protectant for Your Natural Hair

Hey Queens! 👋

It’s been so long since I’ve made any content. I just realized my last post was January 16, 2018. How bad of me! 😔 There’s a good explanation for that though. I’m now a first time mom and I’m still learning to balance being a mom, school and work. 

But….. before I go any further Happy New Year guys! I hope 2018 was a wonderful year and I wish great things for this year, 2019.

To display how busy I have been last year, I was contacted in September about a blog post creator of Reviews.com wanted me to share on my blog and I have not gotten around to do it last year until now. What better time to post it, as a few days from today I will be straightening my hair and getting a trim to start off the year right with my natural hair. Without further a due here’s the blog post from Reviews.com:

Product Review | Garnier® Fructis® Curl Nourish Line

Hey Queens! 👋🏽

I know it’s been like forever but a lot is going on which you’ll soon find out about. 😀 I have so many products to review for you though, like so many. I have a lot of empties at home sitting down ready to be reviewed but since I am in the states I can’t review those that are in Jamaica.

Since I’m in the states I thought I would get my hands on some new products. I was watching a few YouTube videos and I noticed that there were a lot of reviews on this Granier® Fructis® Curl Nourish Line and it seems to work for those with natural hair.  This is actually my first time using products from a product line together to see the results I will achieve. Let’s see how long I can keep this up for. The first line of products I will be using is the Granier® Fructis® Curl Nourish Line.

Hair is almost entirely made up of protein, which gives hair its strength. ALL NEW, paraben-free Fructis formulas with Active Fruit Protein, an exclusive combination of citrus protein, Vitamins B3 & B6, fruit & plant-derived extracts and strengthening conditioners, are designed for healthier, stronger hair.

Color Treated

Hey Queens! 👋🏽

I do not remember if I had mentioned it before but it has been in the back of my mind that 2017 would be a year of trying new things with my natural hair. This first thing I did to my hair that I have never done before was to professionally flat iron and cut my hair. Guess what I did next? I colored my hair. I can say 2017 has been one risky year so far.

Flat Ironed and Cut 💇🏽

Hey Queens! 👋🏽

I currently got my natural hair straightened, that was February 18, 2017 because my weeks are quite hectic to be dealing with a thick head of hair each morning. Be mindful I am one whom is very much afraid of heat and have always tried to dodge ever doing that to my hair. You may wonder why I changed my mind and went ahead to do so. It is because I heard of the first blow-dry bar in Jamaica. Yes, Blow by Blow. It is owned by the Chynn sisters – Tami, Tessanne and Terrie. I always stated that if I was going to get my hair flat ironed, I would rather a professional do that. Blow by Blow came just in time.

Product Review | Aunt Jackie’s™ Curls & Coils Don’t Shrink Flaxseed Elongating Curling Gel

Hey Queens! 👋🏽

If you know me then you know I love a great gel. I’ve been an eco styler girl since the discovering of this gel but then I heard of the great flaxseed gel. I never thought I’d find Aunt Jackie’s Curls & Coils flaxseed gel here in Jamaica but you know your girl just had to get herself one of these to try.

This product is sulfate and paraben-free. It contains no mineral oil or petrolatum.

It is great for natural curls, coils and waves.

It is enriched with flaxseed and wheat protein. Flaxseed, rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, promotes hair health from the inside out, and helps to prevent dryness & flaking. Aunt Jackie’s special Flaxseed recipe adds nourishment to hair, while giving bounce and stretch to withering curls, twists, and coils.

First Time Installing Box Braids

Hey Queens! 👋🏽

So I installed box braids for the first time. This was my first time doing a protective style that includes covering my entire hair. I must say it was a long process – I hate it. I hate to sit and have someone in my hair for too long. It made me look more mature – I now looked like a 21 year old than a 16 year old.

I did this because I recently cut the damaged ends off, therefore I was unable to do my mini twists without them loosing out due to the fact that my ends were blunt.
