Where have I been???

Hey all, it’s been quite sometime since I have posted here. Three years or so! Life just has a habit of getting in the way. I wonder where would this blog page be if I was consistent ?? I am one of those who gets excited about doing something and then the excitement dies and you hear nothing more lol. Well recently (Today) I decided I should start back up again. Gradually I will Let you in on some new things happening in my life and new things I am loving at the moment. I’ll take it easy and post here and there. No pressure. Hopefully if you enjoy it you will come back. If you are returning I’m glad you have made back! Feel free to comment I respond to all and love hearing from you.

Now that we have gotten the pleasantries out the way let’s get into some hair baby! You know we’re are in a pandemic and we have been home looking crazy and just plain lazy to do our hair. I am loving the drawstring ponytail from WWW.SHOPTRESSES.COM . Affordable and long lasting if well taken care of. Lasting power all depends on you!!!! It gives me a polished look without all the hassle. If it’s easy you know I want it. I’m lazy. Do you hear me!!! LAZY! So if I’m putting this up here then you know it’s worth it. Slap some water and gel and put your hair in a ponytail and keep it moving. Take a look at the video below to see how I apply it in less than five minutes.

Here are some pictures for reference as well. I even used the ponytail for a DIY a Christmas photo shoot in our home with my 6 year old daughter .

Curly Cues

It has taken me all winter to find the perfect product combination to keep my curly hair moist, soft and defined.   It was so frustrating to the point where I wanted to give up.   The best and most expensive products have not done a thing for me.  But these three products have made the end of winter so pleasant hair wise.  First up…..

Aussie  Mega Moist!  Let’s be real it’s not hard to find a conditioner that works well.  But to find a cheap one that works well is another story.   I am no longer spending tons of money on expensive natural hair products to only get two good uses.  I buy this big bottle for only $4 and I’ve been using it for a good month and the bottle is still half full.  I use the as my leave in #majorkey to soft moist curls.  

Next…


Curls Blueberry Bliss Twist and Shout Cream!  This is definitely something to shout about.  I apply this after my leave in conditioner and I make sure I coat the hair with this product evenly.   I take my time applying this because this is what defines my curls.  You don’t need a lot of this product as it works very well and that is definitely helping with saving $$. 

 Last but not least….. 


Curls Goddess Curls Botanical Gelle!  When you think of gel you think of dry, hard hair.  But not with this.  It gives me the perfect hold without the hardness.  Giving my curls the best hold  ever! Soft bouncy curls that last all day.   This is the last product I apply to my hair before I braid my hair into two french braids and put on a bonnet and go to bed.  

Note:  I have never used this on a wash n go.  These products will also work well with transitioning hair.  

Let me know if you use any of these products.  

Flexi Rod Set

I literally asked my friend how do you make your curls last all day.  She said IDK flexi Rods??.   So guess what I did a flexi rod set and boom! this happened.  The best long lasting curls I ever achieved effortlessly.  Everything I used is mentioned down below.  Let me know if you want to see a tutorial and if you recreate send me pics. img_0103Hair –Cexxy Hair
