An upclose look at Conici/ hourglass rollers

I have been searching for a large plastic mesh roller for years! Up until recently they were not available in the United States. As soon as they became avaliable I made sure to snatch up a few sets for myself! Lets take a look on the differences between these conical rollers and my old red mesh rollers. I purchased these rollers from Capelli Care, a new website that sells both hourglass and halo (straight) rollers. The packaging was neat and it shipped very fast! They also regularly have sales which makes purchasing them so much better. I purchased the...

Aphogee Curlific Curl Definer

Everyone I’d like you to meet my new boo! Aphogee has come out with a new haircare line called “Curlific” and as far as I can tell its the bee’s knees. I have been using the Curl Definer since it came out and i think I have found my Holy Grail styler! The product itself has a thick creamy consistency and comes in a bright yellow tube. The packaging is actually what drew me to the product because I thought it was cute and fun. It has a light inoffensive soapy scent and works well with other products. In...

I finally got a new dryer!

So finally after months of waiting and doing research I was able to get my hands on a new soft bonnet hooded dryer. I decided to go with Lava Tech’s1400 watt salon soft bonnet dryer model LT-336 which is supposed to be resistant to falling apart after frequent use unlike my old soft bonnet dryer. This is the back of the box where it tells you about all of the goodies inside! What I love about this dryer is that everything comes neatly packaged into one dryer. It is not bulky or heavy at all. The design was really...

End of the year progress

This year I started off with just a few inches of new growth. I am really pleased on how much length I was able to retain this year! After I Big Chopped my hair I only had about 5 inches of growth. It was so short! Now at the end of the year I have about 8-9 inches of hair and I’m really pleased! It starting to feel long already! Around the early part of the year I got my transitioning hair cut into a shoulder length inverted bob. Now at the end of the year my hair has...

Arosci Intensive Restructuring Foam

I just want to start with a disclaimer that this is a salon product and I am not a professional nor claim to be! These are the results of a regular consumer. Ever since winning a basket full of Arosci Products I have been slowly testing them and seeing which ones I like. One product that I really wish I had tried earlier was the Intensive restructuring foam. Judging by the name, I feared it would loosen my curl to the point that it would be unrecognizable. As it turns out it has been one of the best things...

Novex Recovering Mix

I love deep conditioning and I am always on the hunt for the best and I think I have found it in the Novex line of hair care products. When I tried the Recovering Mix from this line I was pretty much blown away! The conditioner comes in a pretty purple and silver tub. The back of the conditioner has tones of information about the products ingredients and how does the Novex brand of deep conditioners compare to others. If you looks closely the main differences between then is the high density, high concentration, vitamin rich and consistent formulas...

Rollerset attempt on short natural hair

It has been a while since I have rollerset my hair. I love rollerset curls but ever since I did the big chop, I have been more into rocking my natural curls. I decided on a whim to see if i can still roll up my hair and get a smooth result. As it turns out getting my hair on the rollers was easy as apple pie. I used a creamy leave in conditioner and that was enough to get my strands to lay flat on my red mesh rollers. The hard part was waiting for it to dry...

Puritan Pride Hair Thickener and Conditioner

Since I have very fine hair, I was looking for a way to help bulk up my hair and give it a fuller look. I stumbled across this hair product because it was cheap and the reviews deemed it very effective. I was so excited about it, I went ahead and purchased a few bottles! The packaging is very straightforward and plain. There is definitely no frills about it! This is not a real issue but I wouldn’t want these bottles to be on my vanity display. LOL I do like how small the bottles are though. They are...

Straightening and Length Check

I decided in the middle of a heat wave it would be the perfect time to straighten my hair! I was so anxious to see my hair straight that I ignored all of my gut instincts and went ahead and straightened the whole thing! As it turns out I’m Shoulder Length! Yay! Not to shabby for just a little over a years worth of growth. I shampooed,conditioned, blowdried and flat ironed my hair. I used a mix of Arosci and Kismera products.(reviews coming soon) My hair as straight but it still started to poof up(mainly at the roots) because...
