Straight&Stylept2 Finally!

Hello All My Darling Divas!

I’m back with a video!( FINALLY!) I know it’s been a couple of weeks since I made a video. School always is a killer but the semester is finally over, so that means more time for blogging and video making! Yay! So to kick-start my video mania, I decided to first finish off my Straight&Style series since I have quite a habit of starting things up and never finishing them. So feel free to check out part1 here. Once your done refreshing your memory with part 1, watch part 2 below and meet me under that for more deets and pics!

Watch Part 2

Now just like in part 1 I will list the JCS products that I used in this video, provide you with the description of each product, and tell you what I think.
Curl Defining Cream
Great for defining your curls, reduces curl shrinkage and frizz, adds shine and dries soft
This product I ran out of so quick because it is that AWESOME! It left my hair feeling really soft and manageable, and I would definitely consider making it a staple in my regimen.
Nourish & Shine
100% natural shea butter based, great to nourish,seals your cuticle and adds great shine, great for daily use on your hair and skin.
This stuff right here is everything! It definitely knocks my shea butter mixture out the way. It has an awesome smell to it, and it kept my hair feeling great. It is great duo when combined with the Curl defining cream, and I think that’s definitely why I had such success with my flat-twist out
Wrap&Roll
Great for twist outs, seals the cuticle and adds moisture, dries clean and shiny
   This product is def a hit for me because I always use a setting lotion for my twist. What I love about this product is that it’s light-weight and doesn’t leave a crunchy feel to my curls.
So judgement for ALL of the JCS products that I have sampled are that its a GREAT product line! It is Type 4 Hair friendly and I really enjoyed using these products. I ran out of so much of it because I used it soo much! I can see myself buying the full sizes of these products in the future. Do yourself a favor and go to your local target and pick up this sample kit to try it out for yourself. I swear you wont regret it! Check out the Jane Carter Solution website here for more info on any of the products listed. 
So here are some pics of the hairstyle, let me know if you try it yourself! Feel free to follow me on any/all of my social networking sites! The links are above. Until next time ladies, love ya lots like tator tots!XOXO

Straight&StylePt1

                                                                                 Hello all my Darling Divas!

So I have always wanted to get my hands on some Jane Carter Solution Products. I have heard wonderful things, but they can be a bit pricey. My dream finally came true when I came across a kit from target containing sample sizes of the products! It was only 20 bucks!!! I quickly purchased them and was too excited to try them out!

Watch the video here for more info and meet below for more deets!

Now as stated in the video, this is the first part of a 2 part hair tutorial. Today you are getting the straight, and next week you are getting the style. Below I will provide you with the info(as stated on the package) of each JCS(Jane Carter Solution) product that was used, and then I will tell you what I thought of it. 
Hydrating Invigorating Shampoo 
 Sulfate free, gentle cleansing and detangling with a peppermint tingle

. Now this stuff right here really clarified my hair. I think I used a bit too much of this product, so next time I will use less. It kept my hair feeling VERY clean! I dont remember feeling a tingling sensation, but I am more impressed with how clean it made my hair feel. A lil goes a long way with this product ladies!
Nutrient Replenishing Conditioner
Detangles,Repairs adds shine and moisture. Also great as a light leave in.
This stuff rocks! It left my hair feeling really soft after 20 mins. It made my hair more manageable as I went forward with adding heat. The directions on the back of the bottle said to sit under a hooded dryer with this product, so I will consider doing that next time. I think it works perfectly fine without it.
Revitalizing Leave In Conditioner 
Great for re-hydrating daily, detangles, heat protects, and adds moisture.
I LOVE the fact that this is a mist! It was easy to distribute the product evenly to my hair! It was light-weight and i think definitely helped my hair feel super soft after I flat-ironed. 
So ladies my final verdict on the products so far is a THUMBS UP! I would definitely consider buying all three as full size products. If your interested in purchasing any Jane Carter Solution Products, feel free to visit the website.  There you will find more products and even salons! I might go pay a visit there sometime.
Well that’s it ladies! I hope you enjoyed! Feel free to follow me on any of my social networking sites. The links are above. More pics are below and make sure you stay tuned for next week where I will be showing you a style to do with your straightened hair! Until next time, love ya lots like tator tots!

Fave Hair Products

Hello Darling Divas!

I’m here again with another video! Two blog post in one week? Im on a roll! Lets hope I don’t drop the ball. BUT ANYWAYSSS! In today’s post were going to discuss my fave hair products. I decided to do my top 5 fave hair prodcuts because I have soooo many favorites and my faves are always changing so I picked the lucky number 5. The Video explains more in detail about why I love each product. So after you watch the video join me below for some more info and where to buy!

Did you enjoy? I hope you did! I tried to make it as short as possible. The one thing that I hate are long videos, so I generally try to get what I need to say out so that your not watching a 20 min video!. I’m rambling though, so let me get to the deets!

Fave #1- Homemade Shea Butter
I make my own personal mixture and put them in whatever jars I have handy, so that explains why its in a gelato container( It was yummy!) But my Shea Butter Tutorial and more info about it is Here. I probably will redo this tutorial so that its more detailed because honestly that tutorial sucks! BUT you get the idea. Stay tuned for me redoing that later on.  You can get Shea Butter from your local beauty supply store and I’ve also purchased some from my local Walmart.

.
Fave #2- Murray’s Loc- Lock Gel
I LOVE THIS STUFF! I have already expressed it so much in the video but man oh man this stuff is great! Below is a picture of a twist-out I did using the sheabutter, loc-lock gel, and high gloss setting lotion. See I told you its the best combo EVER! You can purchase Loc-Lock gel also at your local beauty supply store and Walmart for around 4 bucks. You def wont pay more than $5 for this product. 
My twistout using this great stuff!! DEFINITION BABY!!! 
Fave #3- Design Essentials High Gloss Setting Lotion
I ALWAYS use setting Lotion with my twist outs just because of how I like how it define’s my curls. I always use LottaBody Setting Lotion, but I decided to switch it up and try a new product. Switching to this setting lotion was a great decision! Now I’m not saying this a permanent switch, but for now its awesome! You can buy this product at your local beauty supply or on the Design Essentials Website (Click on that sentence to take you to the product) 
Fave#4- Design Essentials Leave-In Hydrating Conditioner
This stuff rocks! It kept my hair feeling extra soft after my co-wash and wash routine! A lil goes a long way so dont use to much! You can purchase this at your local beauty supply store or on the Design Essentials Website(Click on that sentence to take you to the product) 
Fave#5- African Royale Hot Six Oil
This all in one oil also works for your body, but I mostly use it for hair. For all of my hot oil treatments, and sealing the ends of my hair, this baby is what keeps my hair looking awesome! Also now that I have my hair in braids I also use this product as scalp oil to keep my scalp moisturized while its put away. 
Alight Darling Divas thats about it! Feel free to also share with me you fave hair products! Natural,Relaxed, Somewhere in-between I wanna see them all!! Until Next time love you lots like  tater tots! And see you next week!

Confessions of a Indecisive Natural

Hello my Darling Divas!

So I have a very silly Hair Story to tell you and it is basically an update to what I’ve been doing to my hair since we last spoke a couple of months ago. I didn’t blog all spring and mostly summer, so this is kinda what has been happening since then! Bear with me ladies, this story is truly a hot mess! But yall still love me! I know yall all have been when I was! 
Caution: The following events ALL took place in 2013, you have been warned!! 
So yall remember last October I introduced the healthy hair challenge and made a video explaining all the problems I hate with my hair? This is where all the chaos began.. click on this this link for that video. So basically I had sooo much wrong with my hair and that was due to the fact that I was dying it too often and using LOTS and LOTS of heat! So I created this challenge, and despite me not finishing this challenge, it did bring me alot of insight on how to take care of my hair properly. It unfortunately also got me going though a constant need to change my hair up since I had no clue what was wrong with it. 
My hair back in October 2012
Ok so towards the beginning of May 2012, I was convinced that I didn’t want to be blonde anymore, I blamed alllll my hair problems on be deciding to go blonde, and from that point on I began growing my hair back to my original hair color.

Now I was starting to dig this ombre look, but I couldnt help but wonder how my hair would look if I went all the way back to dark brown hair. As you can tell I’m all up for change sooooo, I decided to tryout a look to conceal and help grow out the rest of my blonde. So I went to youtube and with the help of some lovely ladies, the Faux Bun Remix was born.
And if you were wondering damn did you change your hair again? yea I sure did lol It was the begining of summer, and I woke up one day and said Im cutting my hair. A box of brown dye and 2hours later… this happened.
Now I loved my hair like this!!! But I totally forgot that summer heat+ flat ioning didn’t last long, sooo this style only lasted for about 2 weeks before I said ehhhhhhh I need something new AGAIN lol soooo this light brown made me think you know Brie you just love your blonde so go back. AND SO this is the very long annyoing story of how this undecive natural went from blonde to black to blonde again within a year. Have any of yall felt like this? Just not being to commit 2 one hairstyle? Im writhing this post as we speak thinking about getting some Havana Twist and I just dyed it back to icy blonde.
 So have yall ladies ever been through this crisis? I find that since having natural hair is sooo versatile, it becomes almost obsesive to want to switch up you look! Now Ive shared my crazy hair story, whats yours? Share you story along with photos on the Facebook Fan Page, or on twitter or instagram using the Hashtag #Nominusplus. Togther we can all put ourselves in You change your hair too damn much rehab! Hope you ladies enjoyed!! Until next time, love ya lots like tator tots!! XOXOXO
