Favorite Deep Conditioners

  1. Aussie 3 Minute Miracle

I discovered this deep conditioner about a few months ago when I was looking for a conditioner that would work safely with my newly colored jet black hair. I tried using deep conditioners and my curls were very dry and brittle. I thought, maybe I should add an oil such as Olive Oil or Coconut Oil to my hair but unfortunately my hair was just too dry for my liking. I asked a friend about what she used for her deep conditioner and she referred me to Continue reading Favorite Deep Conditioners

NexGenNails Gel Powder: Review

If you’ve never heard of Next Generation Nails, then you’re in a for a treat! This could be the best alternative to acrylic and gel polish.

What is NexGenNails?

This the latest lacquer technology in form of a gel powder. Yes! It’s really powder. You literally just dip your nail and instantly you have a gorgeous gel manicure, it works like magic. NexGenNail powder promises no damage to the nail bed, unlike what some people generally experience from acrylic or regular gel polish. There is no need to worry about you nails becoming brittle because NexGenNail powder is fortified with calcium and vitamin E to help ensure healthy nails. The powder is also environment friendly and has no odor. It is lightweight yet durable, so chipping and cracking presents no issue. NexGenNail powder dries superfast and does not require UV light.

There is an ongoing talk about what is a better blending product to use for makeup.  We all probably know what is more popular (Beauty Blender), it is even a six times “Best of Beauty” award winning makeup product!

A Fashion App to Check Out!

Thrifting has been a hobby of mine for years.  The thrill of finding timeless pieces within a store full of outdated, ugly, and super old clothes is so exhilarating!

One day, I was browsing through Instagram and I saw one of my followers selling clothes on an app. I became curious and downloaded the app and my face instantly lit up! I personally discovered that it was a marketplace called Depop that lets friends sell things to other friends! It is like a global thrift store that you can shop in the comfort of literally anywhere for affordable prices!   Continue reading A Fashion App to Check Out!

Umm? Can I Get Some Real Ingredients? ft. Lion’s Crown™

Are you tired of looking at YouTube videos, blogs, and websites that advocate the use of 100% natural ingredients to help your luscious locks? Are you then met with the dilemma of not finding the right product at your go-to Target, Walmart, Walgreens, or even beauty supply store. Sure products can say no paragon, no paraffin, no synthetic fragrance, etc.  but where can you find that product with nothing but the good ingredients!?image1(1)

I was there too, until I decided to opt out of going to whatever store and spending my coins on products that had maybe 5% of the natural ingredient that I was looking for and made my own. With months of experiments and research of natural ingredients that would mix together perfectly, a moisturizer was born! TAME THY MANE: curl lock&softener is our first product from our brand Lion’s Crownthat is made of 100% natural ingredients! At Lion’s Crown we want to emphasize that it is important for your hair to receive the upmost care with natural ingredients and be able to supply you with products that have just that. We want ladies like you to have fierce but healthy fros.

TAME THY MANE: curl lock&softener is the first of many ideas and products that Lion’s Crown has wanted to present to natural ladies. After I had trouble finding products that could provide 100% natural ingredients and never really trusting what was listed on the back of most products, as CEO of Lion’s CrownI wanted to create my own trust-worthy natural hair products. Outside of providing natural hair products, Lion’s Crown™ caters to naturalists who love to make their appearance bold through their natural mane. We also strive to support ladies who are transitioning and just beginning to start their natural hair journey. Our mission is to support those who need the courage to stand out by supplying them great quality hair products and aid them in their confidence.

image2The Lion’s Crown product line provides quality hair care that will give your hair the TLC it oh so deserves. Thanks for reading and Happy Holidays from me, Rienn. Keep that hair bundled up too!
