October curlBOX

23 Oct

I am super late with this post. I really wanted to do an unboxing video but didn’t get a chance to, maybe next month. The October box was the Get Fresh Prescription for Fall aka For Colored Girls When Boring Hair is Enough!

 

 

Reshma Femme Henna ( I received the dark chocolate color): Reshma Henna is a semi-permanent color that lasts up to 4 — 6 weeks, depending on hair texture. For those with gray hair, Reshma Henna completely covers and colors hair. On lighter hair, henna provides vibrant color options, while darker hair can expect softer, but rich hues that add to the current color. For an additional touch, adding coffee to the ‘Dark Chocolate’ will result in a deeper brown shade while adding brewed tea or beetroot to the ‘Rouge’ will result in a deeper red.The boxes include: *Reshma Henna powder *Oil for extra moisturizing*Easy to follow instructions.

*For your convenience, Reshma Henna also has easy-to-follow “how-to” video guides for hair and skin products on the Reshma Femme website. Because Reshma Henna is in the purest powder form, the product has unlimited shelf life and never expires.

Final Thoughts: I like the contents of the October box. I have been wanting to try henna but hadn’t gotten around to purchasing any so it was pretty great that it was in this month’s box. I figure a girl can never have too many products for twists/braids so I will definitely be using the African Pride. The Dr. Miracle conditioner I think we received a sample in an earlier curlBOX I don’t think Lola liked the product but I can’t quite remember so I will give it another shot. I am on a no-buy and won’t be using the behuetifil discount so if you would like my discount code leave your email in the comment section and I will email you the code. Also, if there is ever any product you are just dying for a review of let me know I am happy to try it out and post a review. I haven’t opened a thing from the September or the October curlBOX and I believe I am going back in braids either next week or the following week so I maybe I will do a giveaway of a few products from my boxes. I would love to know what you think about the October curlBOX so please do tell.

Caring for Braids

24 Sep

After one week of rocking my box braids I am afraid I am not going to be able to wear them for 2 months (sad face). My hair-line is already super frizzy as Lola is multi-textured and my hair-line is where she is super fine and thin. So far I have been trying to lay the hair down without looking like Chilli circa the Don’t Go Chasing Waterfalls era, actually pretty Chilli much from the 90’s to early 2000’s. Anyway for as long as I have the box braids I am going to use the following products to keep them looking fab.

 

1. African Pride Braid Sheen- Keep away the itch while keeping in the mositure with African Pride Braid Sheen. It soothes the itch while conditioning and moisturizing your hair. It will also give your braids extra shine. I am going to use this product twice a day, in the morning and in the evening before bed.

2. Organic Root Stimulator Herbal Cleanse Dry Shampoo-This dry shampoo (the consistency is like a gel) cleanses and refreshes braids, locks, and twists etc..without water. I received a sample of this product in a curlBOX   and plan to use it during the first two weeks of wearing braids. I will then switch to my UR Curly shampoo followed up with a leave in conditioner and seal in the moisture. I will be do a review of this product.

3. Maxi Professional Tea Tree Oil- I will use this to seal in the moisture, soothe my scalp and help with scalp dryness. The product is a combination of many oils: tea tree, jojoba oil, sesame oil, and vitamin E etc..

4. Ampro Pro Styl Olive Oil Gel- To lay down the frizzy hairs and keep the braids looking a new and fresh as possible.

5. Tropic Isle Living Jamaican Black Castor Oil- I will be using JBCO on my hair to seal in moisture concentrating on my hair line where the hair is fine and thin.
