5 Ways to Moisturize Your Hair

Keeping my hair moisturized has been the biggest struggle while being natural. Of course we watch tons of YouTube videos and buy hair products hoping that cream or butter will work this time.

When you seek moisture through adding tons of product it will only clog your hair cuticles and make it twice as difficult to keep your hair moisturized. It’s important to know what will give you the moisture you need. I definitely had…

Bella J. Swirly Girl Lip Spa Set Review

It is no secret that I have been dealing with dry skin for a while. Unfortunately, my lips are not exempt from this. Usually a nice EOS lip balm (also known as the egg lip balm) works really well for my lips but there was this one time that lip balm was not enough. My lips were dry, cracking and wearing lipstick dried them out even more. I’m also convinced that they were turning a dark, purple color in some spots (and no I am not a smoker). I tried…

Loc Braid-Out Tutorial

Braid-outs are to me what twist-outs are to my loose natural Sisterfriends. It is a full proof way to give my locs some volume and definition with minimal effort. A loc braid-out takes less time to do than putting rollers or pipe cleaners in my head and I get very similar results. The style can last a while and most importantly, it is super easy to sleep on.

Favorite Spring Lipstick Colors

In the words of our Sisterfriend Jenny, spring has sprung! Well if you live in the Midwest like us, winter is still lingering around but nonetheless, it is officially spring. One of my favorite things about the springtime is the breakout of pastel colors! There isn’t a color I shy away from or that I think is too bold. That definitely includes my favorite accessory, lipstick. When it comes to lip color, I usually stick to variations of reds, pinks and purples. There are five favorite lipstick colors that I…

Organix Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Review

Interesting enough, I first bought this oil when I had hair extensions. I didn’t buy it with intentions on using it for my natural hair. I have had extensions in the past where is the hair would get really dry and didn’t last as long as I would have liked. So, when I bought these new extensions I wanted to make sure the same thing didn’t repeat itself because let me tell you, I paid too much money for that to happen! I was asking around and a friend recommended…

I didn’t know what a skincare regimen was but now if you don’t have one it’s like you’re doomed for failure. Ha! That’s crazy, right? I have had the opportunity to learn so many things by my desire to want…
