Hair Update...

After 2 years of being natural I finally got my hair straighten!! I've been going back and forth on this decision because clearly I'm a scary cat when it comes to my hair. However I took a deep breath and did it.

My stylish wash, blow dry, and then flat ironed it. I was really happy with the results, however after a few days I realized my hair doesn't "lay" like it use to when I was relaxed. After talking to some other naturals they told me I needed to get my ends trimmed. I will post my results in another post :)

My Recent Looks

Influenster Summer VoxBox Review

Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration SPF 30
"Breakthrough dual ribbon formula combines superior protection with luxurious hydration silk protein to wrap your skin continuous moisture and help maintain luminous skin in the sun. Light fragrance stimulate your sense also Water resistant"

Let me  first say this for Darker Skin Gals please don't believe what you've heard!! We DO NEED sunscreen!!  Our skin needs to be protected from the sun because we can get skin cancer as well.
This is very light and non greasy. It really doesn't feel like you have anything on your skin which I like. It makes my skin feel smooth and soft. The scent is not to strong but its not my favorite. Did I feel  like my skin was protect from the sun? well I didn't sunburn so good results!!

Quaker Soft Baked Banana Nut Bar
 I really love bananas and this was the first thing I smelled in my box!! I decided to try this out first why because I was starving lol and was too lazy to make myself a snack. It was soft and chewy. It didn't taste dry or stiff like other grab and go products I normally buy. It wasn't too sweet the nuts gave it more favor. I also didn't feel like I was eating junk it was very fulling. I will be buying more of these for my grab and go snacks.

 Always Tampax Radiant
I was surprise to see how much product came with this bag. I was only able to use the bag and underwear liner. And I have to say that I really like both. The liner was very comfortable, it stayed in placed all day. Gave me alot of comfort. The bag is super cute! My hubs thought I brought another pouch for my purse :) I like how it holds (hide) my personal products in a stylish and practical pouch. I know every girl gets uncomfortable about carrying her time of the month products and the last thing we want to do is scream I'm on my cycle ;)  So this was Big Plus for Me!! As for the other products I didn't get a chance to use the tampon because the box came after my cycle ended, but I love the design of the wrapper easy to travel with and dispose of.
Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color in 905 Red-y-Response
Color is beautiful. I really don't like purple polish because it makes my hands look old. However this looked really pretty on me. I only apply one coat in my opinion you only need one because one is enough. As you can tell there appears to be a cool design on the nail thats due to the special formula and magnetic piece for this polish. On the direction you are suppose to apply 2 coat let the first coat dry and then apply the second. Once that is apply while the polish is still wet hold the magnetic piece that comes on top of the brush for 10 seconds (which you can detach from the holder). And you should get this design. Now it sounds so easy but for some reason my magnetic piece kept wanting to fall out and it landed on the wet polish a few times ): I really like this polish I think I need to practice more with the magnetic piece

Sally Hansen Nails and Cuticles Hand Creme
Hands down this is my favorite product from the box. After I finish painting my nails I applied this to my hands. OMG this smells so good. It says that it contains shea butter. I'm not sure if the shea butter gives it its scent but I really like it. This is suppose to be 24 hour moisture, I do agree it is moisturizing however I'm not sure about the 24 hours part. Once you wash your hands your hands do feel dry again but not too dry. I can say that it still feels soft. I haven't seen a huge difference in my cuticle or nail but I really like this. 

Well what about the Clear and Scalp and Treatment??
After seeing commercials about this I was excited to try but after reading the chemicals in the product, I decided not to use these products on my hair because I'm very picky on what I put in my hair. This may work for other hair types but not for my Kinky Coily Hair. I however did give this product to my best friend to try out because our hair types are different. So what did she think about it?
She said that it didn't feel any different from any other products she has used in the past. It did not weigh her hair down. It just didn't see anything special about it. She did like the smell but other than that she don't think she would use or buy this product.

My Protective Style for the Summer...

My Go To Style during the Summer are Braids!!! I get them every year. I went to the same place I did last year it only took 8 hours which the time flew by because we were watching African movies (which are very entertaining). I loved how they turned out. I have a picture of how my natural hair looked before I got them. I recently took them out after about 2 months of having them in.
