Product Review-Original Moxie

Hello all my Darling Diva’s!

Now I told you that I was going to do be doing some experiment’s with different products, and this my next one that I’m sooo excited to review. One of my favorite hair blogger’s Charjay swears by Original Moxie products  so it’s only right for me too be DYING to try them out. Now I was a lil skeptical about how these products would work for my hair, so I opted for buying the Moxie Mini’s to try it out, and then if I liked it then get the bigger size. I love the fact that you can try before you buy the big one! So let’s get into the review.

Ok so I heard nothing but great things about Just Gel and Lux Locks Original Moxie Products. I was bursting with joy and just couldn’t wait to try them out! Now before I try products, I always wash my hair so that I can see the true results the product on my hair. So I shampooed, conditioned, deep conditioned and pondered on what to do with my hair. I wanted big curls so I decided to let my hair air dry with a little bit of hair oil, and then twisted my hair into Bantu knot’s using the Lux Locks and then a dab of the Just Gel on my ends. These were the results 

I had a head full of curls!!! I was super duper excited and was soo pleased! Now I usually am not a believer of products that say they curl your hair because I have type 4 hair, so you don’t always believe what you see. But these products rock!! Lux Locks and Just Gel are a wonderful duo and I will def be buying these products in the bigger sizes. Consider these to be a summer staple products for me! The twist out lasted for about 3 days, and after the third day I wanted to switch it up. Now I usually hate two-strand twist, but since the Just Gel is made with Flax-seed, I knew it would slick down and keep my two-strand twist looking great. So here are my two-strand twist.

I wore these babies for 5 days and they were looking so fabulous! I kept them looking neat and shiny for 5 days using Original Moxie’s Hair Bling which was sent to me as a lil extra gift in my package.

Final Verdict
I LOVEEEEEEE Original Moxie’s hair products  They give great results and makes my hair look extra fabulous for soo many days!  I was able to put my hair in so many different styles and ways with just these products, and I’m so excited to try out more. The Moxie Mini’s really come in handy, so if you wanna try before you buy the big ones, definitely invest in them. I HIGHLY recommend this product to all you ladies, especially my type 4 hair natural ladies! If you wanna buy original moxie products and test out it’s fabulousness, order them here on the website Original Moxie 
Well ladies, I hope you have enjoyed this product review and hope you go and try these products out for yourselves! Until next time, XOXOXOXO

Healthy Hair Tip #5- When in Doubt, Moisturize ( Moisture Unit)

Hello All My Darling Diva’s!

Ok so as usual before we begin with today’s tip, if you need a little bit of catch up, below are all the tips that have bee posted soo far in the Healthy Hair Challenge! Once your done playing catch up, meet me under that for today’s tip.

Ok so today were going to discuss the last unit in your product Arsenal which is the Moisture Unit and in my opinion its the most important unit. Retaining moisture in your hair is really essential in growing it healthy and long because without moisture, your hair will be dry, prone to easy breakage, and just wont have a good look to it. After your hair goes through the wash and condition stage, your hair is going through so much, and it needs moisture to be added back into it since it when through so much during the washing and conditioning stages. . For years I’ve been using just Shea Butter as a Moisturizer  and while that was all fine and dandy, I noticed that moisturized my hair, but it just sat on top of my hair. Now I was doing some research on some Natural Hair Blog’s because I’ve been having some issues with just using Shea butter and I learned about using water-based moisturizers and then following up with an oil based one to seal . I found out that Shea Butter was an Oil Based Moisturizer and it was missing a water based product to use before. So I was using a sealant and it had nothing to seal in Sooo my hair has been having something missing and it was a water based moisturizer!

Now your probably wondering, how to tell what is a water based moisturizer  and how to tell what a oil-based moisturizer is. This video below I will be explaining more about that and also showing you how to make my homemade whipped Shea butter mixture which is my oil-based moisturizer.

Water Based Moisturizer Recommendations
Cantu Leave in conditioner cream ( My staple product!) 
Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie 
I have a product review of this. I didnt really like it but it still keeps your hair feeling really soft! Click Here for the review 
Shea Mositure Curl and Style Milk

The only recommendation that I have for Oil-Based products is using Shea Butter because that’s all I’ve used. I plan to test our some more hair butters, so stay tuned for more oil-based moisturizer recommendations. So if you find a Shea butter to your liking, use my recipe  or find a type of hair butter, pomade, or oil, that will work just fine.

Alright ladies! That’s all for today’s healthy hair tip. I hope you have learned something new because I sure did! Hope your hair is on it’s way to growing long and strong! Until next time, love you lots like tator tots!

Product Review: 4 Naturals Afro Stretch Cream

Hello my darling divas!
So I have been dying to try out some new hair products and now that I have sometime, I’m gonna be testing out a few. I have been having some trouble finding a moisturizer to help define my curls. For some reason all my staple products don’t seem to to working, so that’s when you gotta start testing out stuff. I went to Sally’s to look for some potential products and came across this curl cream. Never heard of it so I figured why not?

First Attempt: 
Ok so I wanted to follow the directions so that I could use the product the way it was supposed to, and get the results it said it could do. Now I don’t have the 4 natural conditioner  so I just deep conditioned my hair for  30 mins. After I washed out my hair, I applied the curl cream, as stated on the directions, and started to twist my hair in sections. I had about 14 bantu knots all around my head. After that I went to sleep. When I woke up in the morning, here were my results
My hair results were really curly, but not that much defined. My hair was left feeling really soft and actually I had little shrinkage for the next couple of days. I think I will be using this as my leave in conditioner, since it left my hair feeling soft and moisturized, and didn’t really help me that much to define my curls. 
Second Attempt: 
So the directions say that you could also use it on dry hair, so I decided to try my hand at the product one more time on dry hair. So 4 days after my first attempt, I applied the curl stretch cream to my dry hair, sectioned it, and made 14 bantu knots again. When I woke up in the morning, thease were my results.
Soooo once again I got some type of curl, but really no definition. It really was no change from the first attempt, but I still was able to turn it into something cute. Below is a top view so that you see my curls, and then the hairstyle I created with this fro
Final Verdict
I really liked this product! Although it didn’t give me the defined curls that I thought I would get, it left my hair feeling really soft and stretched out for the next couple of days. I was able to contort my hair in so many ways, and barely had to detangle. I would buy this product again, but the next time I would use it as just a leave-in conditioner instead of a curling moisturizer. I recommend all you ladies out there to pick up this product, and if you do tell me what you think! 
You can buy this product at any Sally’s Beauty Supply store, click here to find a store near you
