My New Best Friends

Let me introduce you to my new best friends, Finish Paddle Brush and Full Volume Large Thermal Round Brush by John Frieda.

sleek-finish-paddle-brush full-volume-large-thermal-round-brush
Let me tell you why. As a proud member of the natural hair community I can testify that when it comes to washing my hair it is a tedious, tiring process. Clarification, the act of washing my hair is not so bad but detangling my hair is the worst, so bad that I gave up blow drying my hair. I lived in the wash and go hair style!!! Needless to say wash day was not a happy day!

Until now, these two brushes have turned my frown upside down and made me smile from ear to ear. I could not believe how easily the Finish Paddle Brush combed thru my untamable, wet hair. The bristles are wide enough to detangle without a lot of breakage. I was so pleased, I decided to go all the way and blow dry my hair! The Full Volume Large Thermal Round Brush was like magic! It has holes in it so my blow dryer was able to penetrate my roots without being directly on my scalp.

I am telling you that John Frieda Frizz-Eaze Hair Brushes made my wiry, wild hair shiny and it really helped reduce my frizzy mane! Oh happy days are here again click on the link www.johnfrieda.com so you too can have sleek beautiful hair and turn that frown upside down!

Protected Fun In The Sun

Obagi 1

When thinking of sun screen we rarely think luxury or high end. Once you try Obagi Medical, you will. I am always in search of something that I can use to hydrate my skin as well as help fight those fine lines, dark spots and rough skin that is popping up as I get older. I simple love Obagi 360 HydraFactor Moisturing Cream with Suncreen. It is so thick, creamy and glides on smooth leaving my face protected from the harmful rays of the beautiful sun, I love so much. One of the great thing about this product is you can wear it with or without makeup, which is a major plus for me. I don’t like to wear makeup when it is so hot that as soon as you step outside you are sweating bullets, but you can’t leave your face exposed to the sun so you definitely need to have some protection on your face. I also love the fact that I can use Obagi 360 HydraFactor Moisturing Cream with Suncreen as a daily moisturizer and it does not leave your face oily, it soaks into your skin leaving the right balance of that refreshed youthful glow. Click this link to get your Obagi 360 HydraFactor Moisturing Cream with Suncreen so your skin can be protected http://www.lovelyskin.com/o/obagi360-hydrafactor-spf-30?lsat=LSKIN20&ref=gbase&gclid=CJeVlJGvqcYCFVFefgodoaUMIw

Don’t worry Obagi Medical have your body covered as well!

It comes in a perfect carrying size that you can just drop in your purse and you don’t have to worry about that big bulky bottle taking up room or making a huge mess.

Keep Motions in Your Natural Curls

20150625_090240-1 (3)

In my day to day dealings I get asked all kinds of questions about my natural hair. How long have you been natural? How long does it take to do your hair? Is it a lot of work? What products do you use, and so forth and so on? Here are the answers; my whole life, it takes a while, not if you have the right products and the hair care line I use is Motions Hair Care. It has everything my hair needs to thrive in its natural state from my wash and go to my twist outs.

Motions hair careThe key to having healthy natural hair begins with clean moisturized hair. Motions Shampoo is a great start; it gets your scalp clean and eliminates the build up from all the products that we put on our hair daily. Motions Shampoo gets my hair thoroughly clean and ready to receive the conditioner to lock in that moisture my hair so desperately needs. Motions Conditioner is creamy, rich and simple to use. All you have to do is massage the conditioner from your roots to the ends of your hair for about 3-5 mintues then rinse. It makes my hair so soft and easy to detangle, which as every natural hair chick knows that detangling can be the most tedious part in doing our hair.

To ensure your hair stays conditioned and moisturized Motions Leave-In Conditioner and Hair Styling Cream combined with Motions Hair Oil is to die for! I just section my hair into four parts and then grease my scalp using the hair oil to stimulate my scalp and then use the leave-in conditioner (a little goes a long way). Once you put the leave-in conditioner on your hair and comb through you will notice right away how your curls will be full and bouncy! You can stop there with your wash and go and walk out knowing your natural curls are rocking. However, if you want to manipulate your curl pattern and style with a twist out or whatever style you like, simply start the styling process and let it dry. I don’t use heat so I usually let my hair dry overnight and take down the next day. I take down my twist out and spray my finished look with Motions Oil Sheen for that luxurious shine that leaves my hair light and flirty.

So if you are living the natural hair life or even thinking of it, check out www.Motions.com to get all you will need to let the world know that you love your curls as much as Motions Hair Care products do!
