I really like this shot of Rihanna and I am not just being biased because I am a fellow Barbadian. I find this picture refreshing.

Achieving that Shine

Last night my mother complained that her hair has a very dull appearance and asked for my help on how to achieve shiner hair. I gave her a few of my tips that I will share with you.

1. Go easy on the amount of product you apply to your hair. Hair products, especially creamy moisturisers should be applied sparingly and only as needed.

2.Restore the heath of your. If your hair is damaged no amount of shine serum will allow you to achieve shiny hair.

3 Clarify at least once a month

4. Use an apple cider vinegar rinse as your last rinse during the washing process.

5. Eat properly. Lay off the toxic junk food.

Some people would say that you can add a shine serum to you regimen but personally I hate those products. All the ones I have used before either make my hair too dry or I feel like I am walking around with an oil slick on my head.

I hope this was helpful.

Talk About the Crime of the Century

Marc Jacobs has fallen victim to a case of style theft. According to his American PR team, the entire spring/ summer 2012 collection was stolen from a train in France,

Representatives for the brand made the announcement when it cancelled its press day via an email that read “Dear all,” the press release read. “ The Marc Jacobs PR team is sorry to inform you that our press day tomorrow in the Marc Jacobs store is cancelled, due to the theft of the spring/summer 2012 collections during its transfer from Paris.”

This just shows the extraordinary lengths some people are willing to go to in order to get what they want.SMH

10 Things I Have Noticed While on My Hair Journey

1. Moisturising treatments and I make a great team

2. Most people think that taking good care of their hair is just too much work.

3. HELTR is great as a leave in but it sucks as a moisturiser.

4.I don't need to moisturise and seal 2 times a day every day. In fact I only need to do this every other day.

5. Most people don't believe that black women can have healthy hair. I can't believe the number of times I have been weave checked.

6. I don't necessarily want long hair but I definitely want healthy hair

7. I can't live without Queen Helene Garlic Shampoo

8. Every girl should have a wide tooth comb and a rat tail comb in her hair care tool kit.

9. I can only sleep with rollers at the very top of my head. I hate those things.

10. I might be addicted to peppermint oil. I add it to everything.

I Think I Have Found My Twin

I discovered that picture while browsing through some streetstyle albums on I think she and I share an uncanny resemblance right down to our style. If I didn't know better I would think that is me in that picture. Weird.

L'Oreal Paris Go 360 Clean Facewash

According to L'Oreal Paris the Go 360 Clean facewash is a high foaming, deep cleaning gel facial cleanser that unclogs pores by removing dirt, oil  and makeup. This cleanser comes with a scrublet that sweeps away dead skin cells to reveal smoother softer skin.

Since I heard such great things about this product I purchased the anti break out formula to help control my breakouts.

My thoughts. This product has a very strong smell that lingers and I find this a bit overbearing. It can also be a bit drying even though I have oily skin so I suggest that you ladies with dry skin stay away from this product. I have used this product on three occasions and after each use I was forced to slather on a thick layer of moisturiser. I really like the scrublet though. I will be great with my usual cleanser.

I really wanted to like this product but sadly I don't. :(
