Alternatives to Dying & Bleaching Your Hair

I think it is pretty safe to say that the only thing more beautiful than a big bush is a big bush with a vibrant pop of color. Around my second year of being natural I started to get really bored with twists outs and braids outs, and I wanted to do something different with my hair. I looked into different hairstyles that I could try out, but nothing really sparked my interest. I checked out natural hair blogs on Tumblr and that’s when it hit me, I could dye my hair! I was so excited about dying my hair until I realized I had to strip my hair of its natural color and potentially damage it. I refused to settle for a plain brown bush, so I immediately started looking for other alternatives.

One of the very first options I came across was eyeshadow. I know it sounds crazy but eyeshadows serve as great alternatives for dying your hair. You just rub the palette across a strand of hair and Viola!They’re quick, easy, fun, and most importantly they do not damage your natural tresses.

I was extremely excited about discovering the versatility of eyeshadow, but not long after I was using it on a daily basis I realized that it tends to get everywhere. I immediately went searching for other options and I came across hair chalk. Hair chalk comes in so many fun colors and they work perfectly for people with naturally dark hair who do not want to risk damaging their hair.

I played around with different brands of hair chalk, but my favorite by far was Anastasia Beverly Hills. They had colors in lots of different shades and hues, so if I ever wanted to achieve a certain look it was almost always certainly possible. As of lately my favorite go to product for when I want to dye my hair would definitely have to be ProShots and ColorMe. I purchased both of them from a professional beauty supply store, but I’m sure they are available online.

IMG_6811 I love ProShots and ColorMe so much because the color you see on the bottle or the label is the EXACT color you get. I have to admit that these are both a little more expensive than a eyeshadow palette or hair chalk, but it is completely worth every penny. The other really great thing I loved about ProShots and ColorMe was the precision I could achieve. The design of ColorMe is similar to that of mascara, so you just take the “spooly” and apply the color directly where you want it. ProShots is pretty similar when it comes to precision because you pump the dye onto your hands or an applicator brush and there you have it!

I honestly believe the only “down side” to eyeshadows, hair chalks, and ColorMe and ProShots is that you won’t really be able to achieve a “natural” color so to speak, but wouldn’t you much rather have popping purple highlights rather than boring blonde ones?

So as you can see there are lots of options out there if you’re interested in dying your hair, but you love your hair a little too much to risk damaging it. What are you waiting for? Go and grab an eyeshadow or two!

Product Review: Miss Jessie’s Pillow Soft Curls

Wash N Go – A Fluffy Soft Curl – For People Who Don’t Want Ramen Noodle Definition And Instead Want A Larger Expanded Curl

Description: Miss Jessie’s Pillow Soft Curls is a styling lotion that has medium thickness in consistency. It has a fresh, clean, heavenly scent for those who are into how their products smell.

Process: I did a wash-n-go with this product, but I’m not a fan of this styling method on my hair. Once it dried I put it up in “puff” or pineapple. But what I did notice when I finger combed the product through my wet hair was that it was easy to glide through and it helped to elongate my hair while wet. I can’t say the same for when my hair started to dry (the main reason, I’m not a fan of wash-n-gos on my hair).

Packaging: It comes in a 8.5 fluid ounce tube that is squeezable for easy access to the product. The packaging has blue detailing with pink letters.

Likes: It stayed true to the description on the tube (as stated above) to an extent. I have 4a hair, so my curls are like little spiral springs, as opposed to larger, looser curl patterns. It definitely made my hair softer and defined. I have never seen my curls so defined until I used this product, so that’s a plus. It made my hair uniformed and tamed, as opposed to the bigger the better, which I am a fan of. But the tamed look was a nice change of look.

Dislikes: Although I totally loved the product overall, I didn’t like that it was hard for my hair to stretch and expand days after using the product. I did not receive an expanded curl like the description suggests.

Rate: A-

This was the first Miss Jessie’s product I have ever tried. They’re a little too pricey for me, but I was surprisingly pleased. I’d suggest this to anyone who is thinking about trying out this product.

Hairfinity Hype: 7 Months Progress

I’m hesitant to say that I have not received length because I have, but not as noticeable as I would have thought, or liked it to be. I also cannot say no because with my type 4 hair, shrinkage is real. But let this not discouraged you, I do believe Hairfinity does work. Patience is key. We all know natural hair can be a pain sometimes, but it doesn’t hurt to try new things.

Once I finish my seventh bottle, in celebration of not straightening my hair or using heat for seven months, I’ll straighten it to see how much growth I have gained. And then I will truly be able to see if I have gained the length I have been striving for.

This is an excerpt from an article I wrote about a month ago about my experience with Hairfinity. To read the whole article, click here.

So far, I have been taking Hairfinity for 7 months. And during those seven months, I have been alternating between my natural hair and protective hairstyles. Most of the time being in protective hairstyles (my favorite being Marley twists).

Finally the moment of truth, the reveal has come. This past weekend was my twentieth birthday, and I decided to celebrate by straightening my hair. I have used no heat for seven whole months. This is a big deal for me, usually I straighten my hair every time I take out one of my protective styles. Having a perm for two to two-and-a-half years, and then transitioning but still straightening my hair, I developed an admiration for straight hair. Not dependence, but admiration. I did not fully accept my natural, curly, kinky hair until I had to fully learn how to deal with it without the help of my mother when I got to college.

Fast forward to Hairfinity, I started my journey in January 2014, and it’s now August 2014. Let’s talk hair progress:

  • Length – As I said before I have type 4 hair. When I straightened my hair, I found there was growth, mostly in the back. The back of my hair grows way faster than the middle and front of my hair, so that was expected.
  • Volume – My hair has been thick my whole life, and Hairfinity has only added to that thickness. My goodness! I thought my hair was thick before, so if you have thin hair try taking Hairfinity.
  • Texture – Right now, my hair is in an ombre state because last May I dyed my hair bright auburn using the Shea Moisture hair dye line. So ultimately, my hair is two different textures, which is more noticeable when straightened (but only by feel, not look). My hair has been healthier since using Hairfinity, and looks glossier.
  • Curl Pattern – From using Hairfinity my curl pattern has changed. It’s become a bit looser and more defined, curl wise, which I don’t mind.

Here are pictures for comparison, pre and post Hairfinity with straightened hair:

Crabtree & Evelyn Botanical Body Butter: Review

We all like to smell good right? Well if you have a little money to splurge, then here’s some body butter that will blow your mind! – and make your skin so soft and smooth! Now both of these body butters are the same and will have the same effect on your skin, but I’ll just describe the different smells and the price of course!

Now the price for these body butters (if you’ve ever shopped at Crabtree & Evelyn, then you know that C&E is a high end store and is very expensive) is a WHOPPING $16 each. I’ve had these body butters for about 4 years. I wouldn’t suggest buying this product if you don’t like scented lotion because this lotion is very strong scented. Also, I’d only wear it for special occasions because $16 lotion is too pricey for everyday use.


 

Mango Butter and Grapefruit Botanical Body Butter

This body butter smells like sugared candy all the way! Honestly, it’s smell is less potent than the next butter I’m going to describe. This lotion is perfect to wear in the summertime.


 

Illipe Butter, Lemongrass & Sugar Botanical Body Butter

 

This smell is intoxicating and honestly can drown you and make you nauseous if you put on too much. If you put on too much, you can get dizzy and just have real bad headaches.  With this lotion, I suggest you just dab a little on your wrist and call it a day- nothing extreme. I don’t know the perfect season to wear this lotion in, but if I had to choose, I’d choose summer.

Organix: Shampoo & Conditioner Review

So every time I pass the shampoo isle at Walmart, I see a long row of Organix products ranging from shampoo to oil spray. Usually Organix products costs anywhere from $8 – $13. Luckily on the day that I passed the shampoo isle, all of the Organix shampoos and conditioners (REGARDLESS OF SIZE) cost $5.83. I literally bought about $27 worth of shampoo and conditioner. I’m not a natural who purposely seeks out sulfate- free products or even products with sulfate in it. I’ve noticed that sulfates don’t really harm my hair, but just to be on the safe side I normally use sulfate- free products.

First I’ll start with reviewing shampoo, and then I’ll move to conditioner.

Sea Mineral Moisture Shampoo

Smell: Let me first start by saying I like the smell of all the Organix products, but between both shampoos I bought, I like this one the least. It’s not that it’s an unpleasant smell, it’s just plain. Maybe I’m expecting the wrong scent from Sea Mineral Moisture, but to me this wasn’t cutting it.

Consistency/ Texture: The consistency/texture of  the shampoo is different than any other shampoo I’ve ever used. It’s very thick and does lather up rather nicely. Although to have enough shampoo, you may have to use more than a handful of shampoo and use about 2 handfuls.

After Using: After using this Sea Mineral Moisture, I noticed that my hair was dryer than normal. It wasn’t totally drained of moisture, but it felt as if all the oils was stripped from my hair.

Kukui Oil Shampoo

Smell: I love the smell of this shampoo. It’s refreshing and smells like a blend of Argan oil and Moroccan oil.

Consistency/Texture: The consistency/texture of this shampoo is just like the Sea Mineral Moisture shampoo – thick and lathers nicely. With this shampoo, you will still find yourself using more shampoo than you normally use.

After Using: My hair did not feel dry, it felt very moisturized. With this shampoo, I saw my natural hair pattern (4a-4c) immediately after rinsing the shampoo out of my hair.

Coconut Milk Conditioner

Smell: The coconut smell is enticing. If you’ve ever used coconut oil, the smell that the oil gives off is comparable to the smell of this conditioner.

Consistency/ Texture: Very smooth and flowed right out of the bottle. This conditioner doesn’t have a greasy/slimy feeling.

After Using: Honestly my hair  felt the exact way it does after I use my normal conditioner. I didn’t notice a distinct difference.

Awapuhi Ginger Conditioner

Smell: I’ve actually been using this conditioner a lot lately. Surprisingly, I’m almost out. It smells like a delicate smell, and is not overbearing. Ex) The scent is there just enough to be smelled, but if you walk into a room everyone will not ask you about that amazing smell in your hair.

Consistency/ Texture: The texture is thick and that’s what I love about it.

After Using: My hair feels so smooth after using this!!! I changed this to the conditioner that I’ll use from now on. This conditioner really has done miracles for my hair and makes shower detangling  so much easier.


(Keratin Oil Conditioner as shown in picture was not reviewed due to the fact that I haven’t used it yet. When I use it, I’ll review it.)

3 Apps To Keep You Healthy

At only 22, I have had a myriad of jobs that have left me with a lot of stories to tell. I have been a Nurse’s Aide, a cashier, a community organizer, an Arts and Crafts teacher, a camp counselor, and many more. The world of work all started for me when I was 13 and I got a job working on an inner city farm. Yes, I said a farm. My mom signed me up for a program called DIG, Durham Inner City Gardeners, which turned into my first part time job. We planted everything from squash to basil and snapdragons, which we would harvest and sell at our local farmers market. DIG gave me more than my first paycheck, but also a vast amount of knowledge about caring for fruits, herbs, and vegetables, and where our food comes from. Nine years later, I’m probably still the best at cutting basil, but I’m also a food justice advocate. I now know the importance of food justice and knowing where your food comes from. Since than I try to make an effort to eat “clean” and buy local. The process of transitioning form relaxed to natural also made me more aware of things I was putting on and in my hair and body. I figured if processed things weren’t good enough to put in my body, they weren’t good enough to put on my hair and skin either.

This focus on living a clean lifestyle has led me to seek out many resources to help guide me along the way. Technology has played a big part in keeping me educated on healthy food and natural body products. In the age of Google, you can find a webpage offering just about anything you want to know, but there are also cell phone and web apps that have been incredibly helpful for me. Its important to know the ingredients in our food and body products, so here are a few websites and apps that have been helping me out.

 

Fooducate
Fooducate

Fooducate is a website and cell phone app that provides you with information about the ingredients and macronutrients in just about any food you can think of. You can type in anything from Nutella to fresh vegetables. It even provides information for most store brands. You can also scan product barcodes. It rates products on an A-F scale and than provides a justification for each score, including reasons why you should incorporate it into your diet or not.

Skin Deep
Skin Deep

 Skin Deep Cosmetic Database is an awesome app and website developed by Environmental Working Group (EWG). Similar to Fooducate, you can scan or type in most cosmetic products and it provides information about its ingredients. Skin Deep rates products on a scale of 1-10 and lets you know if any of the ingredients have been linked to cancer, allergies, or developmental problems. It’s very useful when I’m in a store trying to decide between shampoos or body washes and I’m unsure of any of the ingredients listed on the back.

Dirty Dozen
Dirty Dozen

Dirty Dozen is EWG’s app that helps guide shoppers through pesticides. It provides a handy list of the Dirty Dozen and Clean Fifteen, as well as a general guide to buying produce. The Dirty Dozen is a list of the 12 fruits and vegetables that generally have the highest pesticide content, that professionals recommend buying organic. The Clean Fifteen is a list of the most pesticide sparse fruits and veggies that are safe to purchase because they are minimally processed. EWG consistently updates and adds to the list as they continue to do research about pesticides and where our food comes from.

Are there any websites, apps, or other forms of technology that help you live a healthy lifestyle?

A Lush Life

I spend way too much time in Whole Foods, Vitamin Shoppe, and online searching for and purchasing all-natural hair and body products. The price tags aren’t the best, but I genuinely appreciate organic and mostly natural products because of their benefits. This is mostly because with a degree in Public Health, I know way too much about carcinogens to knowingly continue to put them in my body. So thus, I have dedicated myself to clean eating and using predominately all natural products. Not doing so hot on the clean eating front (because I live in North Carolina where Bojanles and Cook Out are easy and abundant), but killing it on the natural product front. A few years ago I discovered LUSH, a company that produces cruelty free vegan beauty and bath products. Although LUSH is very pricey, I love supporting their business not only because they are all natural, but also because they are dedicated to providing a productive work environment for their employees and creating economic growth in the US.

For some odd reason I didn’t know that LUSH had a location in North Carolina, and I had only been hitting up their stores when I was in DC or New York. When my best friend told me there was one in Raleigh, I ran over, almost literally, and treated myself to a few things.

 

Rub Rub Rub ($21.95)

Rub Rub Rub (Buy Now) is an in shower sea salt body scrub that can be used to exfoliate and prep the skin for shaving. It’s an electric blue color, which I love, and has an invigorating patchouli and lemon scent. Although it contains sea salt, the granules are small and softened so the scrub isn’t too abrasive on the skin. I like the fact that it goes on smoothly and produces slight suds. After using Rub Rub Rub, my skin is very soft and smooth post shower. Because I have dry skin, I would prefer a bit of a harsher exfoliator, but overall I have been enjoying using it. I’ve read a few reviews on Rub Rub Rub that state that it works really well for lightening darkened skin, most notably the underarm area because of the amount lemon and citrus juices it contains. I’ve been using it under my arms for the last few days and will give an update if it does help lighten over time.

 

Vanilla Puff Powder ($6.95)

This Vanilla Puff Dusting Powder (Purchase) almost didn’t make it into my bag, but I’m glad I purchased it. It’s an absorbent fragrant powder that has a myriad of uses. So far I have used it in many ways, including as an eye-lid primer and to reduce shine on the T-Zone of my face. The sales associate recommended that I use it to reduce sweating in my bra and to prevent “chub rub.” Anyone who has experienced chub rub knows that it is of the devil and can be terribly uncomfortable. The powder works OK on these fronts, but you have to use quite a bit to make sure the inner thighs are coated adequately. I like the fact that it reduces friction and provides fragrance, but I’d still prefer Shield Guard for anti-chub rub. A little goes a long way with this little bottle of powder, and I would definitely purchase it again.

 

Tea Tree Toner Water ($9.95)

The Tea Tree Toner Water (Buy) is the one item I knew I’d be walking out of LUSH with. My best friend recommended it to me a while ago, but I had never had the chance to buy it. Just like many combination skinned girls across the world, my mother has told me to use Sea Breeze astringent on my face for a little over a decade. Recently I had been trying to find a natural alternative to this and the toner water came right on time. It comes in a spray bottle, so I can spray it directly on to your face or onto a cotton ball, which I really enjoy. Most non-alcoholic astringents haven’t worked well for me (i.e Witch Hazel), but so far the toner water does a great job at reducing oiliness, removing build-up, and minimizing any bumps I may have. I’m currently monitoring it to be sure it doesn’t dry out my skin in anyway, but overall I would recommend it.

Why You Should Be Using Rosewater On Your Hair

Every natural has a spray bottle containing some DIY moisturizing concoction perched somewhere in their room. Usually equal parts water, leave in, and oils, having a simple moisturizing spritz for your hair is just something you must do. Because of its moisturizing and healing properties, aloe vera juice or gel is often a frequent ingredient in DIY moisturizing sprays. Many naturals swear by aloe vera juice, but I never felt that it was benefiting my hair when I used it in my spray bottle mixtures. Because of the magical wonderland that is Pinterest, I stumbled across Rosewater which has been a great addition to my moisturizing spritz.

(photo credit:http://bit.ly/1joNBT6)

Rosewater is an easily accessible super ingredient with many beneficial properties for hair and skin. I originally went on the search for a bottle of it because I read that it worked well as a light fragrance and morning refresher for the skin. I found an 8oz bottle of Heritage Store brand Rosewater at Vitamin Shoppe for $6. I started off spraying a little on my face in the morning or throughout the day, but after more research I found that Rosewater could work even better for my hair. Not only is Rosewater moisturizing, but it is also conditioning, antimicrobial, and stimulates blood circulation. After getting my hair braided, I mixed rosewater and castor oil in a spray bottle as a moisturizer and it worked amazingly for preventing my hair from feeling dry and brittle. I always go a little longer between washes while I have my hair braided, and the rosewater mixture was great at refreshing my hair and adding a light fragrance. Its antiseptic properties helped kill some of the germs and reduce product build-up that I had. Rosewater can also help reduce dandruff and stimulate hair growth by promoting blood circulation. Its like super water for your hair! There are various brands of rosewater that can be found online and in most health food stores. I encourage you to give it a try in one of its many uses and share your results with us.

Eau de Curly Girl: Perfume For Your Hair

       Thanks to Andrea from one of my new favorite YouTube channels, AndreasChoice, I have recently been on a dedicated search for a hair perfume. I didn’t even know hair perfumes existed, but now that I do I most definitely cannot pass up the opportunity to have a fragrant fro. As of late my go to body scent is Bath & Body Works Amber Blush. I’m all about warm scents with hints of citrus and amber, so I want a hair scent that falls in line.
Selecting a hair perfume is a little different than selecting a body fragrance. For one, you definitely have to make sure the fragrance doesn’t clash with any of the hair products that you use. If you’re not, you could end up emitting an overwhelming or unpleasant scent. I have also been cautious of the ingredients that they may contain, aiming mainly to avoid alcohols, sulfates, and parabens. I want my hair to smell lovely, but not at the cost of dryness or extra build up. You can find various brands of hair perfumes at stores like Ulta and Sephora, as well as online. I have found that many popular perfume lines include a hair fragrance, including Angel by Thierry Muegler and Pink Sugar by Aquolina. I have yet to select the perfect scent, but below are a few options that us curly girls balling on a collegiate budget can afford.

UO Apothecary Hair Perfume (Urban Outfitters,$6.95)

Urban Outfitters has a surprisingly dope selection of natural hair and body products. Their hair perfume is alcohol and cruelty free, plus its comes at an awesome price! It comes in various scents such as Red Currant and Woods & Turberose. You can purchase an 8oz bottle in Urban Outfitters stores or from their website.

Mane Teeze Hair Perfume Collection (Mane Teeze, $35)

The women behind Mane Teeze offer a diverse collection of hair perfumes that come in three scents: Haute Mess, Black Widow, and Social Butterfly. The line is sulfate, paraben, and cruelty free and they claim that the fragrances are subtle enough not to conflict with your body fragrance.  They are sold individually in 50mL bottles for $35 or in a set of three for $85 on ManeTeeze.com.

Black Amber & Lavender Scented Hair Perfume (Sugamommy, $14.95)

Black Amber & Lavender scented anything is right up my alley, so I was excited to find Sugamommy hair perfumes on Etsy. There are various other scents and they are full of great ingredients such as Organic Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, Ecocert Beet Sugar Extract,  and Algae Extract. This line of perfumes is also awesome because they are custom made to order and you can add in various finishes including oil, hydrating mist, or shine.

No. 5 The Hair Mist (Chanel, $68)

(photo credit: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/24558760443275825)

This is definitely a splurge item, but I decided to include it because Chanel is such a classic fragrance, plus we should all treat ourselves every now and again. This hair fragrance comes highly recommended by various beauty bloggers and Oprah’s beauty team because it has a light but lasting scent, and its oil based and alcohol free. Chanel offers their hair mist in many of their other signature scents including Coco Mademoiselle and Chance. If I ever feel like embodying Marilyn Monroe, but with a fro, I’m sure I’ll reach for this.

Delicieux Hair Perfume (Yummi Hair Care, $10)

Hairfinity Hype

Length. Length. Length. It’s one of the most coveted things in the natural hair community. There’s articles upon articles, and remedies upon remedies on “how to achieve long natural hair.” But the question is, do they really work? There is also the excitement over Biotin, which is a vitamin that has proven to be beneficial to promote hair health, and more importantly length. But, I’m sorry to say that Biotin is a pill of the past.

The natural hair community has moved on to hair vitamins that have been said to promote hair health, thickness, and length. Let’s see, there is Hairburst, formerly known as HairVits, and the oh so popular Hairfinity. Now Hairfinity is said to nourish your hair from the inside out. It’s the newest craze in not only the natural hair community, but the hair community in general. If you peruse their Instagram page, you’ll find women of all colors, textures, lengths, and backgrounds confessing their love for this product.

Hairfinity not only talks the talk, but walks the walk. There are testimonies overflow on their website and their Instagram. But I think their greatest testimonies are in the celebrities and natural hair bloggers that have jumped on the bandwagon and proven its success. Just to name a few: Kendra & Kelsey Murrell (check out my article “Curly Qs: Natural Hair Bloggers & Gurus), Angela Simmons, Naturally Neiicey, Taren Guy, Keshia Knight Pulliam, and Toya Carter Wright.

Now, with all this, how could one not fall into this trap and want to see what all the hype is about? Well, I fell, and I ended up on the Hairfinity journey. I started in January of this year, and I am currently on my sixth bottle. I started the Hairfinity journey with the hope of gaining length. So far, I’ve seen my hair increase in health, but also in thickness. My hair was already thick to begin with, but now it’s even thicker! I have also gotten way more compliments about my hair since taking the vitamins.

I’m hesitant to say that I have not received length because I have, but not as noticeable as I would have thought, or liked it to be. I also cannot say no because with my type 4 hair, shrinkage is real. But let this not discouraged you, I do believe Hairfinity does work. Patience is key. We all know natural hair can be a pain sometimes, but it doesn’t hurt to try new things.

Once I finish my seventh bottle, in celebration of not straightening my hair or using heat for seven months, I’ll straighten it to see how much growth I have gained. And then I will truly be able to see if I have gained the length I have been striving for.

So in conclusion:

  1. Hairfinity does work! But like anything else, it works different for different people
  2. Keep up with me and my Hairfinity journey! Follow me on Instagram: @MoneBrianna

So are you game to join the Hairfinity journey?
