What’s the Problem with DevaCurl? And Why I Stopped Using Their Products

What’s the Problem with DevaCurl? And Why I Stopped Using Their Products

I think everyone that starts the Curly Girl Method at one point or another tries DevaCurl. It's one of the most popular products for this since it's silicone free and was previously known as being the perfect product to use. Considering it seems to be taking over my YouTube recommended feed, I thought I would talk about my experience and what the products other customers seem to be having as well with their products.…

Beauty Product Standouts & Discoveries of 2019

Beauty Product Standouts & Discoveries of 2019

I was recently going through my makeup collection and decluttering a bunch of products that I didn't end up using. During this process I found a bunch of empty products that I held onto so I wouldn't forget how much I loved them to repurchase in the future. Then I went on a no buy, and never ended up purchasing new ones instead moved onto a 'Project Pan' style method with the rest of my collection. However, it gave me the idea to go over the products that I loved and used up in 2019 as there were quite a few standouts in my opinion looking back over the last year.…

I Tried the Curly Girl Method for a Month, Here’s What Happened

I Tried the Curly Girl Method for a Month, Here’s What Happened

This is a trend I've seen going around on the social media for the past few months and I used to have amazing waves in my hair. Then I cut it and suddenly my waves were gone. Around that time I also started to use Formulate, and while it made my hair feel nice it has silicone which I think is the main culprit to why my waves were gone. So I decided to try out the Curly Girl Method which is from Lorraine Massey's book "Curly Girl: The Handbook."…

Custom Hair Care & Transformation with Formulate | AD

Custom Hair Care & Transformation with Formulate | AD

It's been a while since I've done a shampoo or conditioner review or try-out on here. Honestly I had just given up on my hair after using color remover. My hair was lifeless and frizzy. I could barely stand it and had been living in wigs for the blog/YouTube, and had my hair in buns every day. As while the shampoo and conditioner made my hair feel soft again, it did almost nothing else for my hair. So the idea of a personalized shampoo and conditioner that does what you need sounds amazing to me. Which is why I was extremely excited when Formulate reached out to me to try their products. As I had been looking at their site a few weeks prior to receiving their email. Honestly, I was going to try out their shampoo and conditioner system when I ran out of what I was currently using.…

Kristin Ess The One Signature Shampoo & Extra Gentle Scalp Conditioner Review

Kristin Ess The One Signature Shampoo & Extra Gentle Scalp Conditioner Review

For the past few months, I've switched shampoo and conditioner from Function of Beauty to Kristin Ess. I loved their Strand Strengthening Reconstructive Moisture Mask, which had brought my hair back from the dead. So I thought I would give their shampoo and conditioner a chance. They do have several different ones but I decided to go with The One Signature Shampoo and Extra Gentle Scalp Conditioner. Both contain Zip-Up Technology from Kristin Ess that helps restore split ends, smooths the appearance of damaged cuticles, and helps protect the hair from environmental stressors and color fade. Both products were $10 at Target and contain 10 fl oz or 296 mL of product.…

Attempting to Bring My Hair Back to Life | Olapex No. 3 Review

Attempting to Bring My Hair Back to Life | Olapex No. 3 Review

On my year's journey to starting to feel more like myself, I have hated my hair for months. After many months of bleaching my hair and dying it various colors, my hair was getting shorter and shorter. And not feeling healthy. It was more the bleaching than the dying that royally killed my hair. When I finally decided to no longer have red hair, after three bleach sessions my hair was crispy and chemically shortened. I cut it short hoping that would help in the regrowth process which did help it feel better. But I needed to fix it at the root level. So to do this I decided to try out Olapex #3 with so many YouTubers swore by.…

Nature Queen Shampoo & Conditioner Review | AD

Nature Queen Shampoo & Conditioner Review | AD

little while ago I got an email from the co-founder of Nature Queen asking if I wanted to try out their shampoo and conditioner for free in exchange for a review. As much as I had been loving my current hair care system, my hair has recently decided to just out right hate it. Most likely from all the hair dye, stress, or poor diet I've been having recently. So I was intrigued to give it a go to see if maybe that would help bring new life to my hair.…
