Thinning Hair Project Oil

Well its been awhile since I visited. So many things have happened. I want to introduce the Thinning Hair Project Oil from Cheryl Kelly-Moye. Like most women, I am having problems with thinning hair on my crown and edges. I started using her oils during the latter part of the summer.
This has a bunch of goodies in the oils but what got me was GARLIC and ONION oil..Really? It has a strong scent but when I tried it, my stomach started I used it as a prepoo and made sure I focused on my problem areas.

Look at that. I was embarrassed to wear my wng because everywhere on my head it was nice and thick EXCEPT for this. Agony. So, let's fastforward to now. I have been using her oils and Coffee Burdock Twisting butter. And look what happened to my ugly spot.
It's filling in nicely. I use her oils like it was nobody's business. Since its winter, I have decided to try to wear twists and behold this gem she came out with.
 My hair is soo soft and I love the scent. Not only does she have oils but there is the Coffee Burdock Twisting Butter, Herbal Infused Spray, and for the man in your life...50 Shades of DAMNNNN soap and buttah.

From what I am hearing on Facebook, she started her Black Friday Sale early!!! Check her out at

My journey into the 90 day Grow Your Own Hair Challenge with Nzuri Day 1.

I got it!!!!! My 90 day supplies from Nzuri Haircare. This is what I got in the mail...

The great big bottle is Nzuri Liquid Hair Vitamin plus Growth Stimulants..This is 32 fl. oz and you can either drink 2 capfuls in the am OR 1 in the am and 1 in the pm. I put it in my drink and chug a lug. The taste isn't too bad and I think you will get used to it. The liquid hair vitamin has many uses. You can add a capful to your weekly conditioner or 1/4 cup to your daily moisturizer. Also you can add it to your fave shampoo. Put some Nzuri on a cotton ball and apply it to your entire face. Shine in 5 to 10 days... Good for your nails too!! You can soak your nails directly in the liquid. Wash your hands first in soap and water and emerge your nails into the liquid for 5 minutes at a time...Wait a minute!! Not only is it good for your hair but for your skin and nails too? I am loving the multi-uses.

Next up is the Hair Booster 15 day Colon Cleanse..Um, a colon cleanse? Ok, I see. Clean up your insides of the icky stuff to help grow your hair.  This will get rid of the intestinal tract of excess waste, reduce bloating, help increase energy AND may provide several pounds of weight loss within a few days. Down the hatch they go! I work in a warehouse for 10 hours a day.(4 days) I hope and pray (yall pray too), I will be ok! 15 days of cleaning..LOL..Check! 2 pills for 15 days.

Hello to the Gro Herbal Hair Vitamin Formula. More wonderful vitamins for the bod, hair and nails.2 pills a day.Gobbled them up too! So far so good!

And finally, the Hair Follicle Food 61 Ancient Miracle Hair Growth.  100% natural. This gem has over 61 holistic herbal extracts, essential oils and vitamins. If you have ever used Brahmi, Amla, shikaki , then you know they have sort of an earthy smell. This oil has an earthy smell. Use a generous amount from the root to the tip. Really massage your scalp and leave it in for 10 minutes. You can leave in up to 3 days before your next wash. I slept in mine and washed it out the next morning. I might try that over the weekend.

Come and see JessiCurl

I hope everyone enjoyed their day! I had the pleasure of doing a review on JessiCurl. I was excited and wanted to try their products.
I liked how they sent the deep conditioning AND an extra moisturizing conditioner. Also the products are based on your hair type and they give you a mini brochure on what is good for your type plus how to use them with friendly tips.  

First I tried the Hair Cleansing Cream. The scent is a wonderful Island Fantasy and reminded me of a citrus drink. It's creamy and not too thick. A little goes a long way so you really don't have to be heavy handed. With some poos, I have to wash a second time. Not with the cream! Once should do the trick. My hair felt really clean and to me it was soft to the touch.

Next i tried the Deep Conditioning Treatment. Now with this, you have some options. You can either use it as a leave in (for thicker, drier curl types), use it with heat or just sit and chill with a cap on for 30-60 min. So, I opted the 60 min dc. The DC is thick and really creamy. I didn't have any problems with slip and maybe it's because Samantha LaRue is really long. I sat around and crocheted a bit. After the time was up, I washed it out. Hmm, okay the curls were soft but they were not POPPING.

The Too Shea Extra Moisturizing Conditioner came next. This too is thick and creamy You can either leave it in for 3-5 min, then rinse or leave it in OR if your hair is on the fine side, then a DC. Of course, I left it in. I can see curls but still not POPPING.

Last up is the Confident Coils Styling Solutions. Light and creamy. A little goes on a long way. I put a little in and worked it a bit. My curls were moisturized and the curls were there but not POPPING.

I enjoyed trying out these products and no I am not getting paid for this.  I give JessiCurl a 4.5 Bottles out of 5. You can find them on FaceBook (, on their site and instagram @jessicurl. Drop by and give them a try.

I Heart Pienki Blieu!!

AHHHH!!! I have been on a search and find mission for the perfect body butter /scrub. All I can say is Pienki Blieu. I got the chance to use the Whipped Body Butter and Scrub in Moroccan Mango. Let me tell you, my skin feels so soft and moisturized. When my treats came in, I love how a nice card came with the product. That was a very nice touch and it was personalized. YAY!! I opened the Whipped Body Butter First. It was so creamy and smells delicious! I put a dab on my arm and was in heaven. It smelled so good, my daughters wanted to wear some too. Okay, I gave them a little dab on their arms too. I grabbed the scrub and took a sniff. Wonderfully fruity. The scent isn't overbearing and it reminds me of an exotic island. The scrub is nice and thick. When I applied it to my skin and rubbed it a little, I can tell my skin was getting softer. After I used the scrub, I dabbed the towel on my skin and applied the butter while i was somewhat wet. I know now, I do not need to look any further. All night long, I kept rubbing my skin in amazement. My skin was soft AND silky. I felt DELICIOUS!!! The real test was how my skin felt in the morning. Pienki Blieu passed with flying colors! I am a forever customer. I can't WAIT to try the other scents. I give this treasure 5 Butters out of 5. I Heart Pienki Blieu! If you are looking for the perfect body butter and scrub, Pienki Blieu is the way to go. They can be found on facebook ( and

YES, SHE IS 12!! That is amazing to me! I got the chance to try some of her products. The packaging was wonderfully done and reminded me of Christmas a bit. My daughters had fun opening it.  It was so many to choose from everything look so yummy and beautiful. I chose the Gingerbread soap. OMG!! it smells just like gingerbread and i almost took a bite. My 2 girls LOVED using it. We then tried the stick of lotion. I loved how you could just roll it on your skin. It was very handy and easy to apply. I LOVED EVERYTHING. I give Azariah's Innocence 5 Bars out of 5. You can find her on facebook (, Site ( Please, PLEASE check her out. You will not be disappointed. I know I wasn't.

Elasta QP

I just so happen to see a vlogger do a review on Elasta QP. When I received my box I was pleased but disappointed at the same time. I received the Olive Oil & Mango Butter Moisturizer, which smells very good. I tried this and my curls were popping and it felf moisturized. I loved how it felt going in. The next one was the Curl Defining Pudding. Wonderful stuff. When this went in, my front really curled up and when it tried, it was a very nice hold and not crunchy. Next was the Curl wax. This is for straightening your hair. Couldn't use this because for one, my hair is long like that and two I haven't used heat in my hair in a year. That was a no go for me.
The last two is the Growth Moisturizer and Moisture Butter Shampoo. With the shampoo, I got good lather and it was nice slip. My hair afterwards felt moisterized and smelled like mangoes. The Growth Moisturizer is creamy and went in smooth. I didn't have a problem with it. Now you know I am in a quest for a good leave in conditioner and was disappointed that I received 2 moisturizers and not a leave in. The disappointment came in when I used the products together. When I did that, it produced lil balls of product throughout my hair. I was worried about that and believe me I wasn't a happy camper. In all, if the product didn't react to itself and if I had a leave in instead of the 2 moisturerizers, it would have been perfect. I give Elasta QP 4 bottles out of 5.

Oooh La La...Hello She She Kouture

She She Kouture....the name reminds me of something French. I love whisper the name to my daughter. Anywho, not only do they specializing in the newest, trendiest accessories and clothing in the indsutry but they also offer other items as well.
The Lip balm is in tropical and glides on my lips. Some lip balms you really have to put in some work but not this one. Very smooth. This makes my lips feel smooth and silky. Love it! Next is a sample of bubble bath in Strawberry Champagne. I don't take baths only showers but I used it for my girls. It bubbled up real nice and my girls smelled so good. They hated to get in the water. Their skin had a silky feel to it. My bathroom smelled really good. This would be wonderful if it was a shower gel. I used the butter soap in Baby Fresh. Ahh, I didn't think soap could smell so good. I was in the shower for a good while with that soap. It smells of baby powder and a fresh scent. I got so many compliments and folks swore I had on some perfume. Ha, I just tell them, its Baby Fresh!! The last item is a Calming, Soothing Bath Tea. I almost messed up with that one. I thought it was drinking tea and went to go fix it. It's a good thing I took my time and read the big ole DO NOT INGEST. Yes I know. SMH!!! I am going to use this when the girls are at their dad's. I think I am going to need a good ole soak with this. I know, I know.....a few sentences up I stated I don't take baths only shower BUT this is a bath tea. I have to try this out. In all, I love all my samples.  Check them out on facebook and on their site I give the fancy SheShe Kouture 5 Smell Goods out of 5.

Moisture Balance Styling Custard

The Styling Custard is great for braid or twist outs and wash and go styles. This light weight formula gives wonderful definition, hold and shine. This is my first time with a styling custard. I decided to try using this as a wash n go. What I like about this custard is its not too thin and creamy.

I can't put my finger on the scent but I am smelling honey in it. After I washed my hair and while it was soaking wet i put maybe a quarter sized drop in my hair. I shimmied it thru and the definition was wonderful. My curlies were springing to life. I loved the hold and when it dried, it wasn't crunchy at all. This is a wonderful if you are using it on twists as well. Very nice hold. Come and check out Moisture Balance on facebook and on their site . I give Moisture Balance Styling Custard 5 jars out of 5.

TuShea Butter Cream in Jamaican Punch

TuShea Butter Cream products are made with 100% un-refined shea butter as well as all natural ingredients and essential oils.
Great for hair & skin to provide moisture! Use for all types of skin even if suffering from dermatological issues like eczema, dermatitis, and allergies.
When I first smelled Jamaican Punch, I fell back in my chair. It smells so good and yummy.  My daughter came over to do a sniff test too. Let's just say I had to pry it from her hands.
 I like that its semi hard and believe me when I tell you, a little goes a long way. I use this after I take a shower. It goes on smooth and my skin feels soft. I also put some on my daughter in the morning and send her off to school. I smell YUMMY! My next idea is to use these on my twists and see how that works. If you are looking for a delicious butter cream, go check out TuShea Butter Cream on facebook and on their site . Look at these scents: Jamaican Punch, Loving You, Chocolate Cookie, Almonila, Peace for Men, Original Shea, Peace for Ladies, Lavender Love, Enchanted Apple, and Ask about customized scents.
