Beauty Bit- Actually Organic Argan Oil Review

actually organic argan oil

FTC: I was given this bottle of Actually Organic Argan Oil for review. This is an honest review.
actually organic argan oil

I love using oils on my skin and hair. When Actually Organic Argan Oil offered me a free bottle to try, I was very excited. Not all argan oil is created equal. This particular brand is very good because it actually made from 100% pure and cold pressed argan oil from Africa. This isn’t the synthetic-kinda mixed with other questionable things type of oil. The owner of the company went to find the purest, best smelling oil. I have been using this oil for a month now. I use it on my cuticles, my hair, the corners of my eyes, my lips, and my elbows. I really have been getting my use out of this oil. I really talk about how I use the oil in the video below. The 4 ounce bottle of Actually Organic Argan Oil is on sale at Amazon for $23.99. I was actually given the 1 ounce bottle. It costs $11.99 and lasts a long time. After all I have been using it for, I still have a great deal of oil left. You really don’t need that much oil for each use. Check out hte video below for more.

The weather is finally starting to get cooler, and this is the time where my scalp starts to get itchy. I am so glad Canviiy showed up in my inbox with a free sample. Thank you Canviiy for the free sample. Y’all this product is so good. Canviiy is a combination of different oils and ingredients that, when used on the scalp with the easy to use applicator, stops the itch. It truly works. I tried the samples they gave me, and I was so amazed by it. I usually use tea tree oil to stop the itch, but Canviiy swears by their product and claim that it gives you a long-lasting scalp soothing sensation.

half-wigs-for-natural-hair
It is that time of the year again where I start to look for some wigs to use as protective styles for my natural hair. Half wigs are great because they are easy, usually cheap, low maintenance styles that can protect my natural hair from the cold, dry air. I always start the wig search process by going on YouTube and checking out the latest tutorials and wig hauls. I’ve seen quite a few wig hauls on these new Outre half wigs, and I think these might be the best half wigs for natural hair.

Battle of the Yaki Lace Front Wigs! Help Me Choose One!

Yaki Lace Front Wigs

Yaki Lace Front Wigs

Ok guys and dolls! Please get me out of this hair dilemma. I need your help in picking out a yaki lace front wig. I have been looking at different yaki lace front wigs for months. Since I am natural, and very fond of protective styles, I want a wig that will mimic straightened hair so I don’t actually have to straighten my hair. I am so afraid of damage. After being natural since 2012, I want to keep my hair growing and strong. Protective styles, like twists and wigs, help my hair to grow because I am not playing in it or adding heat to it all the time. The thing I like about yaki lace front wigs is that they look more natural on my head. Sometimes I want a wig that looks like it could be my hair.

Beauty Bit- I’m Loving These Natural Hair Tips For The Summer

inikscott

I am loving these natural hair tips for the summer from LHDC-TV. She basically talks about letting your hair down and out for the summer, and that is what I have been doing myself. I have been wearing a wash and go all summer long. No wigs here…at least until the winter. With my hair, a wash and go is something super easy to do. Have you been trying new hair styles this summer? What have you been doing with your hair?

Beauty Bit- How To Pineapple Natural Hair At Night

How to pineapple natural hair at night

Have you ever wondered how to pineapple natural hair at night? Pineappling is where you put your hair up at night instead of retwisting it that night. It is an easy way to keep your hair lasting throughout the week without all of the work. Even though @blackonyx77 has long hair, you can do this on short hair too by making many mini pineapples at night. The other great thing about this hairstyle is that you can rock it out as well with a really cute scarf.

Beauty Bit- Temporary Hair Color For Natural Hair

temporary hair color

I love temporary hair color for natural hair because you can spray it in and then wash it out. I have been using some sprays that I recently got from the BSS and my local Sally Beauty Supply. The only problem I have found is that it sometimes gets hard and crusty, so I let it dry and then kind of knock the flakes before I go. You can also use hair chalk and mousse. This is the temporary hair color I use from Sally Beauty Supply. In MissKenK’s video, she shows you how to properly spray and chalk the hair. Enjoy! Photo from Sally Beauty Supply!

This is my favorite brand of temporary hair color!

Beauty Bit- As I Am Coconut Cowash Review

As I Am Coconut Cowash

I finally bought the As I Am Coconut Cowash. I know I am late to the party, but I love this stuff. It cleaned all of the gooky product I had left in my hair and left it incredible soft. I bought it for $9, but the website site says it is $8.99. I actually saw it at Sally’s for $6.99 though. Wherever you get it from, I guarantee that it is worth the price.

My Natural Hair Journey – One Year Without A Relaxer

My Natural Hair Journey

My Natural Hair Journey

 

I just have to share my natural hair journey with you. I can’t believe that this weekend marked one whole year without a relaxer. My last relaxer was on November, 15th 2012. Crazy to think about it. This is my second time going natural, and I am really committed to it. Transitioning to natural hair hasn’t been as hard as I thought it would be. To be quite honest, I had heard all of these horror stories. I thought I was going to have the hardest time combing my hair and taking care of it, but I haven’t. Praise the lord! Clearly I’m doing something right.

Beauty Bit-Beshe Drew Wig Review

Beshe Drew

Remember when I wrote about the Beshe Drew wig in my All Natural Style Secrets post Well I bought another one. This time I bought the wig from Elevate Styles in the color 4. For the non-wiggies out there, wig colors are categorized by numbers, and a 4 is basic brown wig. I am really loving the lighter color. I said that I wanted to experiment with color, and I am finally doing it. The Beshe Drew wig looks so good on me. It took a little bit of an adjustment, but I think I am going to be buying more wigs in that color.

I bought both versions of this wig from Elevate Style because they have the most colors, and the best price. Youtuber ColouredBeautiful has a video where she tries all the colors on. If you are not a fan of curls or full wigs…don’t buy this one. It is pretty big when you first put it on and gets bigger the longer you wear it. It is easy to cute so you can shape it to your face, and the 2 inches of parting space looks realistic. The hair texture is really natural looking for a synthetic wig. The Beshe Drew wig is like a fine wine. As cliche as that sounds, I am telling the truth. The older and frizzier the wig gets, the better it looks. I get so many compliments on it. This wig is on sale at Elevate Styles for $29.88! Get it and you won’t regret it!

Beauty Bit- Freetress Equal Lace Front Deep Invisible Part Nelly Wig (OP99J) Review

Freetress Equal Lace Front Deep Invisible Part Wig Nelly

This is a review of the Freetress Equal Lace Front Deep Invisible Part Nelly Wig in an OP99J. The wig is really beautiful, and actually looks better than I thought on.  I wanted to try a new color without dying my hair, and I think the purple-deep burgundy color looks great on me. I am going to have to put concealer in the lace part to make it look like my scalp color, but even the white color on the scalp lace looks realistic on my head. The only problem is that the wig cap is too small. It doesn’t even feel like a medium. I am really going to have to stretch it out. It has two combs in the front and one in the back, as well as little straps in the back to loosen or tighten it up. I got this wig from Amazon. It was $31.41 after shipping and handling. If you want a good price on the wig, do a Google search. Even Amazon had the same wig for different prices for each different color. SMH!

 

Etsy Love- Bel Nouvo Avocado and Shea Healthy Hair Milk

Bel Nouvo

Bel Nouvo I hope you all had a safe and pleasant holiday weekend! So umm who knew Etsy sold beauty products beyond soaps? Well I just did when I went looking to restock my Bel Nouvo Avocado and Shea Healthy Hair Milk. I am in love with the Bel Nouvo Avocado and Shea Healthy Hair Milk! It has worked wonders on my hair and I can’t say enough crazy good things about it. I received a tiny little sample at Fro Fashion Week in February. Since then I have been using it every now and then when I feel I need moisture or wash my hair.

I am almost out of the bottle and I need a new one, so I decided I was going to buy a full size bottle. Since I can’t find this brand anywhere in my neck of the woods, I decided to look online. I was able to find the leave-in conditioner on Etsy for $10! I can’t wait to buy some because it is so good. It doesn’t coat my hair or make it feel heavy, you only need a little bit of this thick and very creamy stuff for each section of hair. Plus it has so many uses: Hair Moisturizer, Leave-In Conditioner,  and Detangler!  Also be sure to check out the Bel Nouvo Facebook page for sales and other natural hair tips.
