Stop! Before you Protective Style!

Hello All My Darling Divas!
Welcome back to the blog! I first want to say I’m sorry for posting so late! I have been trying to get this blogpost up all day, but Youtube was taking FOREVER to upload my video! So excuse this post for being so late, but  I was determined to post today! (lol) Today were going to be talking about how to prep your hair for protective styling. It is starting to get warm, and I know that us ladies like to put our hair up to protect it from the summer rays. I recently got my hair put in Crochet Braids, and I made sure to prep my hair properly before I got this style installed. Click here to check out the blogpost on all the info on my hair! I definitely have learned my lesson by not prepping my hair before I protective style, and not taking care of my hair WHILE it’s in its protective style, so this video is to help you not make the same mistakes that I did! So enjoy the video, and meet below for more details!

Did you enjoy the video? I hope that it was really informative and helps you out! If you have any other ideas or tips, feel free to leave them below in the comment section below! I mentioned in the video that I had a blogpost on different protective style ideas. Click here to check that out. I posted this a while ago and I know of so many other protective styles, so I may just update this post later this month. But still check it out! It’s still great!

My New Protective Style

Happy Memorial Day Darling Divas!!

I hope you are enjoying your Monday, and relaxing if you have the day off today! Today on the blog we are going to be talking about my new hair! I finally hopped on the Crochet Braids trend, and I have no idea why I didn’t do it sooner! This video is all the details on my hair so that if you were wondering anything like what kind of hair it is, or who did it you can just look to one video! I am having sooo much fun with this new do, and I cant wait to experiment with it further. So enjoy the video below and meet me under it for more details!

Did you enjoy the video? I hope that it was as informative and helpful as possible! If you have anymore questions about my hair comment them below or hit me up on any my social media. I will be sure to answer any questions that I see. I’m truly loving my hair, and I am having so much fun with it! I needed some change in my life and I think that hair is filling that space for me right now. I’m not gonna lie I was really nervous with getting my hair like this! It was something I never tried in a color that I haven’t had in F O R E V E R! But I went for it anyway and I’m so happy that I did! I definitely encourage you to try something new with your hair this summer! I promise you wont regret it


Who did my hair?
Now usually this would be a style that I would try to do on my own. But I was at a crunch for time and really didnt have any time at all to figure out how to do this style. So I remembered that my good friend Shirley said to me a couple of months ago that she does Crochet Braids. So I decided to finally call her up and Boom! Crochet Braids done!
Her number is (973) 389-4542. Ask for Shirley and tell her that Brielle sent you!
The Hair I used
I used 6 packs of the Jamaican Twist Braid Marley Hair from the brand Equal. The Color I used was a 1. It was 4.99 from my local beauty supply store, and should be around the same price if you buy it from your beauty supply store or online. You can goggle the brand of hair to see what websites sell them. They also come in a variety of colors, so if you looking for a specific type of color I would suggest ordering it online. You may only find natural colors like black, brown, and maybe red at your local beauty supply store. 
Pics!

So ladies that is all! I hope that this blogpost/video helped you! Feel free to follow me on any of my social media. They are all linked above. What is going to be your protective style this summer? Tell me below in the comment section! So until later on this week, love ya lots like tator tots, and see you soon!


                                                                         




Product Review: Creme of Nature Products

Happy Friday Darling Divas!
I hope you are having a wonderful Friday, and I hope your weekend will be amazing! Today I’m coming to you with a product review video on the Creme of Nature Products that I received in my May Curlbox. Click here if you haven’t checked that out. I didn’t have time to do my usual hairstyle battle video because I’m getting a protective style this week. I really wanted to try out these products, so I decided to do a product review video. So basically this is a Hairstyle Battle video except its on a hairstyle that I have already done before. So check out the video below, and meet me under that for more details and pics!

Did you enjoy the video? I really love these Creme of Nature Products! They work really well together, and they smell great! I’m now going to give you a brief opinion on each of the products.

Cream of Nature Pure-Licious Co-Wash
This stuff is amazing!! It made my hair feel so amazing, and I am definitely adding this to my favorite products list. It gave my hair great slip, and made the detangling process really easy. Out of all of the products in that I tried out this is one that I see myself buying when it runs out.

Creme of Nature Argan Buttermilk Hair Milk
This buttermilk was amazing as well. It worked great with the Pure-licios Co-Wash, and made my hair feel really soft. This whole week I used this on my hair and it kept my hair feeling very soft. Great product! 
Creme of Nature Style & Shine Foaming Mousse
I felt like this product was good, but not the best foaming mousse that I’ve used. I’m going to try this mousse again one more time to be sure that it works for my hair the way I like. It did give my hair a good curl, but I feel that it will work better on my hair if I use it on dry hair. 
Creme of Nature Perfect Edges
This product was pretty good, but it wasn’t the best edge control product ever. It slicked up my sides, but didn’t keep them slicked for very long. I think that next time I will use a brush to further slick up my edges with this product.
Here are some pics of the finished look! 
Well Ladies I hope you have enjoyed this blogpost! I really enjoyed the Creme of Nature Products! I think that when I try them again I will style my hair on dry hair instead of wet hair. If you try out any of the products let me know! Comment below and tell me what you think! Feel free to also follow me on any of my social media. They are all linked above. So until next week ladies I love you lots like tator tots, and see you then!

Hairstyle Battle: Me Vs The Silk Wrap

Hello All My Darling Divas!
Welcome back to another exciting installment of the HairStyle Battle Series! Today it’s a battle of me against The Silk Wrap. Now the silk wrap is definitely a throwback hairstyle. So what better day to post it then Throwback Thursday! I remember years ago watching tons of my fave natural hair divas try out this hairstyle. I figured it was about time fore me to test my hair against the silk wrap, so now it’s time to see who will win: Me or the silk wrap? So watch the video and meet me below for deets!

Did you enjoy the video? I hope you liked it!  This is the SECOND time that I have lost a hairstyle battle! These hairstyles are definitely kicking my butt! But it’s ok! I will be sure to win next time! Now lets get to the details!

Here are the two videos I watched to learn how to do this style. There were TONS of tutorials, so it was def hard to narrow it down to just two.

The first was this tutorial by Classcie. She was very informative and her hair is AMAZING!
And this is defintly a throwback video from Mahagony Curls. I have always loved her videos, and her hair is also Hair Crush worthy! 
As far as the products used in this video I used all the products from my April Curlbox, and I have to say I was pretty disappointed. They just didn’t leave my hair feeling exactly amazing. I hate to talk bad about any company’s products, but I also have to stay true to how I feel and keep it 100 with you all. So if you want to check out my April Curlbox click here. That will have more details on the organix products.
Products Used.
Organix B5 Shampoo and Conditioner
Organix Weightless Oil Mix
Organix Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum
Tressume Heat Tamer Spray 
Beautiful Textures Moisture Butter
Lotta Body Setting Lotion
So here is the finished product of my hair and the silk wrap. It isn’t exactly smooth and moisturized, but after this video I added some of my Shea Butter Mixture and wrapped my hair. When I woke up my hair was very manageable and soft. 
So ladies I hope you enjoyed this installment of The Hairstyle Battle! Be sure to come right back here tomorrow for another blogpost! So until then, love ya lots like tator tots! And see you soon!

Hairstyle Battle Me VS Finger Coils

Hello All My Darling Divas!,
Welcome back to the blog! It’s been all about hair this week and I couldn’t be more excited! So earlier this week I came to you with my first CurlBox Unboxing! If you want to check it out click here! February’s curlbox came with alot of wonderful products this month, and I had to of course figure out a way to incorporate the products in the box. I decided what better way to use the products then to do a Hairstyle Battle video! Now I have always wanted to try finger coils, and now that I had some amazing products to try I figured now was the perfect time to test it out! So enjoy the video, and meet me below to see who won: Me or the Finger Coils!

So I think it’s pretty safe to say that this hairstyle battle was a TIE! I won because the style did look great and stayed in place. The Hairstyle also won because I ended up not liking how it looked on me. You guys be the judge. Who do you think won? Me or the hairstyle? Leave your comments below! Now lets get into more info and of course pictures!



The two videos that help me achieve my finger coils feel free to use both of the  full out tutorials to show you how to achieve finger coils.
Charyjays Tutorial on Finger Coils- Chile I loveeee a Charyjay Tutorial! Always very informative and simple to follow. I chose her because we have a similar texture, and she showed two different methods of products to use to achieve this style.
Jouelzy’s Tutorial on Finger Coils- Jouelzy is my go to guru for 4C Hair! What attracted me to her tutorial was because we have similar length and texture.

 For this video I used 4 out of the 6 products that came with my CurlBox. For a more detailed description of the products featured, click here for my Curlbox Unboxing Video.

Ok So I started off with super dry hair that was tangled and lacked moisture. I used the Cantu Shea Butter Coil Calm Detangler. It left my hair feeling super soft and manageable. I will definitely be using this again! 

Then after that it was time to condition and I decided to grab the Carol’s Daughter Mirabelle Plum Conditioner. It put shape back into my curls, and kept my hair feeling and smelling great! 
After that I let it dry using the Dove Quench Absolute Cream Serum as a leave in. I showed how soft my hair was in the video. I showed you that I used the  Curls Blueberry Bliss Curl Control Paste and it really held the finger coils! I loved the curl control paste! I was really pleased that it held my curls 
So since I didn’t really dig the finger coils, so I decided to take them out and rock a finger coil out and I loved it! The Control Paste really defined my curls and I have been rocking this super defined coil out for the past 3 days!
So ladies that’s all! Maybe I will revisit finger coils once my hair gets longer! If you try it out let me know! All my links to my social media are linked above. I hope you have enjoyed the second video in the Hairstyle Battle Series! I am having sooo much fun testing out new hairstyles, and I wonder what I will come up with next. If you want to see me try out any hairstyle just comment below and let me know! So until next week ladies, love ya lots like tator tots!
