Post-Extensions Blues

You’ve definitely heard someone speak of being shocked, sad or depressed after removing their extensions, but have you ever experienced the post-extensions blues? I recently did my first sew in myself…yes I braided my hair- after much trial and error- and kept the extensions in for around two months with three separate installs. I took…

Spoiled Rotten: Fermented Ingredients In Beauty and Skincare

You’ve likely already ingested something fermented, or rotten, and not known it- wine, balsamic vinegar, cheese…but would you consider incorporating rotting ingredients into your skincare regimen?   In a W Magazine post, “Why the Korean Beauty World Is Going Natural, and Why You Should Too,”  Gillian Sagansky quotes Sarah Lee of Glow Recipe as stating…

Hard-Water’s Effect on Hair and Skin

In my previous post, H2-Oh-No: Hard Water Irritates Skin!, I discussed how hard-water had affected my skin.  After noticing and hypothesizing over patches of inflamed flushed areas all over my body, doing some research, and self-diagnosing, I concluded I did not have a sudden bout of eczema, but rather hard-water dermatitis. In a Vogue.com article,…

Anti-Frizz Flat Iron in a Jar: Butter Whip Coil Cream

This should be called flat iron in a jar!  The claims are definitely not exaggerated.  I put this on my hair just to try it out…I condition every time I wash my hair, so I’m always putting conditioner on and leaving it in.  It wasn’t until before going to bed I did a double take…

Nights In White [Silk]

I’ve long been a fan of satin sheets and pillowcases, and have very recently switched to Silk. It feels very cool, soft, sleek…luxurious, and is great for your skin and hair. Once, I had friends try to have sex on my satin sheets…luckily I caught those fuckers in the act. Bitch, how dare you disrespect…

Federic Fekkai 

Frederic Fekkai  Glossing Cream is  greasy & nasty (it has olive oil in it);  I had to reshower & shampoo 4 times! Not fun, not cool, not good.  It feels dry, not moisturizing.  I had to dowse my head with Pantene, then shampoo with L’Oreal just to get it out. Let’s just say I’m not…
