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!
However, we also know that the Beauty Blender is roughly twenty dollars each! With all the hype, who wouldn’t choose the magical Beauty Blender?
Then, we have an affordable product that is $7.99 and that my friends is the wonderful Real Techniques Sponge.
Which one do I use and why? (more…)
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 The thrill of finding timeless pieces within a store full of outdated, ugly, and super old clothes is so exhilarating!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! (more…)
One day I went to my local beauty supply store and as I was browsing through the aisles my eyes glanced at a new product on the market that I have been itching to try. Yes ladies, the infamous Eco Styler Black Castor and Flaxseed Oil gel. Did I end up getting it, you ask? Of course! That is what this post is all about. A review of the Eco Styler Black Castor and Flaxseed Oil gel.
For those of you that may be unfamiliar with this product. The Eco Styler Black Castor and Flaxseed Oil gel is a holding gel fortified with vitamin E, Fiber and Omega- 3. The purpose of this gel is to nourish, repair and help the hair grow while at the same time, still being able to superiorly hold, provide shine and feel weightless to the hair. (more…)
As a black girl going through the whirlwind of emotions when starting your natural hair journey, our first question we ask ourselves is, “What products should I try for my curls?” or “Will this product work for my texture?” We go from Cantu to Creme of Nature to Curls, Miss Jessie’s and many more to achieve those beautiful braid-outs and trendy twist outs but to complete this look we need the one essential product that every curly girl should have: a to-die-for edge control.

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!?
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 Crown™ that 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 Crown™ I 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.
The 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!

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.
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!
