Winter Detangling & Shedding

Hiya guys! I don't have time to update this blog much anymore, but I will still try to do so. I have been recording a bunch of videos lately and also doing other projects in my life. The kids keep me occupied 24-7.
Anyway, I have gotten a kind of new regimen with my hair. I now dry detangle instead of wetting my hair first!

I was doing this as an experiment in the weeks prior to me sticking to it, but now it works so much better for me. So it's back to the basics of using coconut oil in my hair to detangle. It's been working sooo well. 
I am still doing the Baka Beautiful NaturalLaxer review. One more week for the last application and then editing time! 
My hair color has been working so well! It's not as dry as it was when I first bleached it, only because I started integrating my shea butter back into my routine. Silly me; I should have been doing that. But I've been forgetting, using leave ins without using shea butter on top to seal. That's what has been saving my hair all these years anyway! #backtobasics
So I am still loving this color on me. :)
I've been shedding a little more than usual the last few months, and I think it's because of the normal winter shedding a lot of women get around the winter time. It's annoying, but it's actually getting better every day. Woo hoo! Also, I am making sure that my iron isn't low, because that can cause shedding as well.
I will be back soon with more updates! Stay tuned to YouTube for videos. :D

Baka Beautiful Review Coming Up?

Hiya, curly mamas! It's been forever. Uber busy once again. I have a review of the Baka Beautiful products coming soon. It's a 'natural relaxer', and no, it's not one of those freakish gimmicks to make you buy the product, claiming to 'fix' your natural texture. It's all natural and clay based. But it's a kit, with a process that I have to try within about 3-4 weeks, so the review won't be ready until later on this month. I'll do a video about it and probably do a detailed blog post as well. So stay tuned!
By the way, my mini braids are out! ;-)
 They lasted for two weeks, and then my scalp was beyond itchy. So I wet my hair with my aloe vera juice and water mixture and added LOADS of coconut oil to the braids. Taking them out was annoying, but it was a breeze. Three hours compared to the five hours that it took to install them. O_O
Stay tuned to YouTube for the Baka Beautiful review coming soon enough. ;)
