Russell Organics Review

Hi dolls,
So about a week ago I received Argon oil from Russell Organics to review. I was extremely excited to try this because its 100% pure and organic. It has no filters, masking, or additives. It's toxin free, cruelty free, can be used on skin hair and nails. It's very cost effective for $28. Click here and read more about it. In the mean time ill tell you my experience after one week if use.




 




My daughter Brooklyn has Eczema and I love this for her skin.  Though it doesn't cure Eczema, it does keep her skin smooth and non itchy.  I also use this on the heels of my feet.  From wearing flip-flops in the summer, my feet where very cracked and dry.  I would put a regular moisturizer on them after my shower before bed with socks, but that wasn't enough.  When I applied only the argon oil with sock on .....my feet were very smooth and non cracked.  I love it. 




I also applied this to Brooklyn's hair after I co-washed it and breaded it to air dry..




 
Love how shinny and silky it came out...From there I just used the flat iron and its left it smooth and shinny.  In the middle of the week I applied a couple of drops on the ends of her hair. 
 
Though I'm a makeup artist.  I'm a big skin care fanatic.  I'm very much so into organic products and look forward to other all natural and organics products for hair skin and nails. 
 
If you have tried this product or any argon oil.  I would love to know your thoughts. 
Don't forget to check out Russel organics website for video and more.

New hair style

Hi beauties. So I've been trying different styles for my hair and trying different products and wanted to share it with you guys.
I've been using the Cantu natural hair line. So far in loving the product.
First I co washed my hair using the AG conditioner. I then put some organic cocoanut oil in it for added moisture. Then I did a double strand twist all over using the Cantu moisturizing curl activator cream. When u took it down to separate the curls I used the Cantu creamy hair lotion.

I love how it turned out. It wasn't frizzy and my curls are refined and shiny. I'm very pleased!!
Below are pictures of the process. Hope you enjoy.

I'm on Essence.com

Hi Beauties!!! 

Yesterday October 24th 2012 I got off work as usual and checked my emails......business as usual.  I Thought it was rather odd I had over 100 emails.  I checked my facebook page and saw a message that said.  Congratulations on being on Essence.com.  I thought It was spam so I ignored it.....Then  my friend Rachel Odem posted our picture congratulating me so I had to check into it.  Sure enough, I find out Ive made the top beauty gurus on YouTube.  Follow the link here to read more and congratulate the rest of the YouTube gurus as well. 

When I started making YouTube videos I had no idea where it would go.  I just wanted to share what I learn and it helps me practice more.  I love what I do.  I appreciate the love and support from whom ever watches and learn from me.  I'm so honored to be in the top 50 with most of my favorite YouTube gurus.  Unbelievable. 

So my goal now is to find my adaptor to my camera so I can bang out more video for you guys.  I miss it BAD!!!  Thanks for all the love and support and I hope you continue to watch learn and share. 

If you are new to my page you can check out more of my tutorials here. 
Until the next post....xoxoxoxoxox

Thank you! muah!!!

Co-wash

Hello dolls. Long time no talk. Lots has been going on in my life since I last made a post.
Make a long story short, we moved about a month and a half ago and I'm still in the process of getting organized. I have misplaced the cords to my video camera so I won't be posting videos any time soon 👎😢
However I will be randomly posting makeup looks and my hair product journey.
With that said. Today I co-washed my hair and just wanted to share my personal hair experience. What better way to start?
I'm sure some of you are wondering...what is co-wash? Co-wash is simply washing your hair with conditioner. This is best If you have natural hair. It leaves my hair very moisturized and hydrated. I'm not a fan if shampoos because wether it is sulfate free or not, shampoo makes my hair feel very dry. "That's that mess I don't like" lol
Moving on........the conditioner I decided to use today is by AG. I used the (curl) line or the recoil conditioner. I like using conditioners that are for curls.
Enjoy the pics below and stay tuned as I finish this bottle and keep you posted on my thoughts on wether I would buy it again!!!
I would love to here your thoughts and thanks for reading. Unroll the next post ✌😊
