What I’m Tryin’…
Twisted Sista Leave-in Conditioner & Detangler Spray
What it said it would do:
Twisted Sista Leave-In Conditioner (detangler) contains Argan Oil and Lychee. This Leave-In Conditioner & Detangler eliminates frizz while conditioning.Designed to restore manageability, moisture and shine while helping to repair and reduce breakage. Free From sulfates, parabens, phthalates and mineral oils. Contains UV Filter and Antioxidant.
What I wanted it to do:
Be a great leave in conditioner since leave-in conditioner is perhaps my favorite hair product to use but my current one leaves a build-up after continuous use without washing in between.
What it did do:
I was not confident that it would work as a detangler for my hair because my hair is way past my shoulders and I need something with extra, extra slip so I used this instead of my normal leave-in conditioner and sprayed it on after applying twist & lock gel to do a “”braid out”. I sprayed it on the smaller sections and I was actually pleased with how my fingers were moving through my hair. The next morning, my hair was soft and shiny. One of the great things about this product was the fragrance. Most natural hair products have fruity or creamy smelling fragrances like pineapple or coconut and other buttery-like scents but this product smelled kind of like cucumber and that was refreshing and different. I probably won’t use this product as a leave-in conditioner after shampooing because it’s a little too light but I will use it as an everyday leave-in to freshen up my curls since the light feel will be perfect for daily use.

Here are some of the latest videos from one of my many favorites, style blogger/vlogger Wendy of Wendy’s Lookbook. Her amazing videos are totally worth the view. It’s like watching a magic show about fashion.
This video below was simply the cutest!

What I’m Wearin’…
Houndstooth is my absolute favorite print to wear. Plus, I love the intensity and electricity of cobalt blue. So when I saw these two put together, I had to have this jacket and wear it with simply all black.

What I’m Lovin’…
Hey guys! In the last post, I told you about my natural hair meetup this November. It was a lot of hard work to organize but it really paid off. It was a success! It was co-organized with a friend of mine who owns a natural hair boutique in my area and several ladies came out for the event held at the beautiful Chocolate Cheesecake Boutique. Check out the pics!
