Video Update

Excuse the mad face, LOL. That should be changing in a moment.
This is an old video I did the beginning of September, I have been trying to upload it to youtube for the longest but for some reason my laptop won't allow it.  I finally got the idea to save it do an SD card and do it from my desk top, I did all that after I uploaded it here though.  Enjoy.

Shea Moisture and Quemet Biologics Review

I have fallen in love with Shea Moisture's Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo, I used it for a second tome this weekend and got the same effect, soft curls without that stripped feeling that most shampoo leaves your hair feeling after rinsing. I was able to run my fingers through during and afterward. Amazing!  My best girlfriend gave this to me a few weeks ago after she went back to the creamy crack, yes she did, her husband could not get used to her hair after a year and she relaxed it back...that's another story, just like a man.  Relate, relax, and release!  Anywho, I am so glad she gave it to me, I used it two weeks ago and thought  maybe the results were a coincidence.  Well I used it for a second time on this Saturday and got the same results, wow.  I think I have found my new shampoo.

Shea Moisture Organic Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo

Ingredients: Contains de-ionized water, Decyl Glucoside (sugar beets), African Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea butter) (denotes certified organic ingredients), aloe vera leaf juice, Argan Oil, Panthenol (pro-vitamin B-5, rosemary extract, sea kelp extract, vitamin E, Lonicera Caprifolium (honeysuckle) flower and Lonicera Japonica (Japanese honeysuckle) flower extract.

What it does: Hydrates, smoothes, and repairs strands, leaving hair manageably soft.

Other ingredients: Sea kelp-trace minerals detoxify hair follicles of impurities and residue.
                            Argan Oil-restore shine and elasticity.
                            Shea Butter-deeply moisturizes and repairs damage to hair and scalp.

I definitely give this product two thumbs up!!!
Now on to Quemet Biologics Burdock Root Butter Cream
I heart this soooo much it's ridiculous, this left my hair so super soft the past week when wearing my twist out, I hated to wash my hair.  The consistency reminded me of Afroveda Totally Twisted Ginger Almond Butter the only difference is the smell, I'm just not to fond of the smell of the Almond Butter it triggered my allergies something awful.  The Burdock Root barely has a smell and I like that.

Quemet Biologics Burdock Root Butter Cream

Product Description
Our Burdock Root Butter Cream is a light, water based leave-in for fine haired naturals, straight styles and those looking for a light penetrating moisturizer. It conditions and softens while nourishing the scalp. Leaves hair healthy, soft and supple!
Key Ingredients: Contains Pure Mediterranean Olive Oil for softness and emollience, extracts of Burdock Root, Nettle Leaf, Oatstraw and Wheat for their conditioning, scalp nourishing, shine enhancing and hair growth properties. Vegetable glycerin for its humectancy and MSM sulfur for nourishment and healthy hair growth.

Directions: Rub a moderate amount between palms and evenly distribute through wet, damp or dry hair. Leave-in and style. Use alone or in combination with any of the Qhemet Biologics leave-ins.

I give this product two thumbs up cause that's all the thumbs I got, if I had more they would go up too.

Unfortunately, my after almost two weeks my little sample size is completely gone I used the last bit tonight, but you know I will be putting in another order for the big size ASAP!

Hope you enjoyed, until next time, holla.

Twist and Curl Friday

Last night I did a twist and curl on my hair, I used my Pure Silk foaming wrap lotion (loved it when relaxed) and a little Burdock Root Butter Cream to twist and then wrap it around itself.  I think it turned out pretty cute, it's just pinned up in the front, one of my coworkers told me she liked my hair better HERE but she still liked this one too. Tonight my hair will be getting washed after two weeks, I am sad though because I stopped my my local India Mart to pick up some Amla and they were out and no Henna I was ready to do my treatment too. 

 My hair is sooo super soft that I hate to wash it.

Chunky twist out

My chunky twist out is a result of needing a hair wash  but no time to give it the spa treatment it deserves so I have been putting in chunky twists since Friday.  Products used: my oil mixture and Burdock Root Butter Cream by Quemet Bioligics.  I just orderd a sample size to try but I think I like it, I haven't tried it on clean hair yet, but if it works great so for I can't wait.  It's getting bigger every day.
I am in love with the results.

My custom necklace

I was finally able to get my pictures uploaded, for some reason the new photo upload tool was taking tooo long to do it's job. Ribbon, a few chains,and some cute material turned into a flower. Super simple.

 check out the matching earrings

I love this necklace, the flower 
is interchangeable

End of the week hair

It's the end of the week and my twist outs were great all week, still using Shea Moisture Conditioning Milk and coconut shea butter.  Needless to say it is about to be over...on Sunday.  No hair washing today giving myself a break, last Saturday I washed my hair and my daughters hair and gave them a protective style that will hopefully last another two weeks before all the rubberbands pop.  I wish my Baby Girl would sleep with a scarf but it irritates hair her nape something awful so her hair usually doesn't last as long. 
Also I won't be doing my Amla/black tea treatment that I am loving, it will just get a regular cowash on Sunday and twisted back up. I really can't stress how much I can tell the difference in my hair, no hair fall at all, hmmm, there is something going on here!!  Next weekend I will definitely be doing a henna and amla mix I promise.  Until then check out a few pictures of our hair.

 Both girls hair is in the same style
