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 http://www.sheshekouture.com 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 www.etsy.com/shop/moisturebalance . I give Moisture Balance Styling Custard 5 jars out of 5.

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.

Skin Delicious BODY SO FINE!!!

Skin Delicious BODY SO FINE!! I love the name. Just saying it makes you feel DELICIOUS! When I received these products, I knew I was in for a treat.
This is the Amazing Moroccan Clay Hair Mask Intense Deep Conditioning. When I first opened it, the scent was really pleasant and the color is a light beige.
 The consistency is thin and it went on great. I put it on and sat with a shower cap on. I don't have a hooded dryer so I wrapped it up really good. After 20 minutes, I rinsed it out in the shower. My hair felt good and my curls were curly. I went thru my usual routine and then picked up this little gem.
This is My Mojo Organic Luxury Oil for Hair and Body. I love oil that smells good and this here is one of them. I like how it glides on my hair. When I put this in, my hair felt so moisturized. I love it so much, I tried this on my daughter's hair. Her curls just POPPED and she loves the scent. Both of our curls really curled up after I shimmied the oil thru.

Now I have been on a hunt for a good conditioner. I believe I have found one.
 Hello, GORGEOUS Hair Triple Strength daily Conditioner. Very pleasant scent, thick and creamy. I used this as a leave in. Went on very smooth and I didn't have any problems.


It is not heavy at all and Teeny Weeny is loving being moisturized. If you are looking to jump start your curls or need some much needed moisture, check out Skin Delicious BODY SO FINE on facebook or on their site http://www.bodysofine.biz

Welcome Natural Hair Box



 I got the chance to review a new subscription service called Natural Hair Box. There are other services out here but what impressed me the most is that it was DELIVERED in a very timely manner. I love the logo and it reminded me of a bow on top of a present. And how I love presents.
 
Upon opening my box, I see Bake Shop Butters in a delicious Lemon Cake by Nureka Duncan, Total Moisture Styling Butter from Authenticality Company, CC's Naturals Hibiscus Leave In Conditioner, Sincere-ly Naturale Apothecary in Deluxe Butter-Laiche Cream- Strawberried Coconut, Naturalista Organic and Natural Hair Care's Juicy Leave I Conditioner, Jamberry Nails and a Butter Cup which is a homemade butter. I love all these homemade products that can be use for your hair as well as your skin.  
Every customer who signs up for the Natural Hair Box subscription service will receive products that have natural, gentle ingredients and are produced by companies who foster the belief of putting wholesome, healthy ingredients onto your hair strands“There are other beauty boxes to choose from when it comes to subscription services, although Natural Hair Box differentiates itself by asking subscribers what they wanted and giving it to them,” said Akira “Jael” Byrd, Founder of Natural Hair Box.

The products selected for Natural Hair Box are also vetted by the Natural Hair Box staff. Mrs. Byrd stated that each product must pass 5 point inspection. If the product doesn’t successfully pass the 5 point inspection and isn’t specifically requested by the subscribers, don’t expect to see the product included within Natural Hair Box.
 

“We understand that each person’s hair is different. What works for one person, may not work for another,” Mrs. Byrd said. “This is why we don’t have a panel of experts and gurus, because we want to empower the Natural Hair Box subscribers to be gurus of their own hair. We send out boxes containing products that subscribers have requested, so our subscribers can try them and decide how they like the product.”
 

Hair care products that are included in the boxes range in size from 3 oz. samples to 16 oz. full-sized products. A typical Natural Hair Box contains products valued at $50 or more based on the retail prices of the items.
 

“Natural Hair Box generally includes very few true sample sizes – 1 oz. sample packets. Most of our products are premium-sized to full-sized products. We recognize that many product samples are only useful to test on a small section of hair, which can be useless for women who have longer lengths of hair. Our goal is to provide you with a size that is applicable to one full application or more, so that you can experience the product,” Mrs. Byrd said. In addition to the hair care boxes, Mrs. Byrd runs a blog www.NaturalHairCommunity.com which discusses natural hair care and the problems associated with it.
 

Jael and Kenneth (husband) have always made recommendations about what has worked well based on their personal experiences, but they always encourage women to become the guru of their natural hair. Also, they read extensively about what other naturals say has worked for them and share the knowledge with others. “I give my readers information based on what I have learned, the good and the bad,” she explains.

Introducing Bobeam ( Bo-bee-um)




Let me introduce a wonderful, WONDERFUL shampoo bar from Bobeam Products. Bobeam(Bo-bee-um)  is from the Ghanaian language Twi means 'the way it was created' and it characterizes all of the shop items - they are all handmade. During this natural journey, I have been using shampoos and cowashes. They were great and it served its purpose. I have heard other curly friends about a poo bar. Hmm, that sparked my interest. When I got my box from Bobeam Products, I was in heaven. The shampoo bars are HUGE!!!! I was in heaven and had a hard time picking which one to use. I like how on each poo bar you can read the ingredients. All good stuff. Finally I had to choose one and I picked the J'Rels Detox Clay Bar- Grapefruit and Peppermint. Let me just say....It smells so good and juicy. The first time i used it, it didn't take much to lather up. Every time I would swipe the bar thru my hair, I could smell the grapefruit and peppermint. I did a few swipes with the bar and my curls were very springy. I made sure to lather up twice and my hair never felt so clean. After I rinsed for the second time, I knew my co wash and shampoo days were over. This is all I have been using. And with the bars being so big, I am not worried of running out anytime soon. After I rinsed, conditioned etc, I massaged my scalp and sealed my ends with the Rootz Herbal Hair Oil. It smells of peppermint and lavender. I don't know why but it relaxed me and my scalp felt really good.  If you have never tried a shampoo bar, you don't know what you are missing. Check out Bobeam Natural Hair Products on facebook and on etsy http://www.etsy.com/shop/Laquita33 You will LOVE these poo bars. I give Bobeam 5 poo bars out of 5.
