Bantu Knot Results

Hey guys! I do apologize for the delay of this post! I was unable to video how I took them out but if you would like to see one, please comment below and let me know! So let's get started!!

I slept with a satin bonnet overnight and most of them stayed together!


Next I removed all the bobby pin and took each bantu knot down. I just pulled gently or twisted them in the opposite direction.

Then I carefully separated each twist once. After you separate the first time, you can separate each section to your desired volume or liking. I stopped after separating once.

Afterwards I applied some oil to my hair and fluffed so you didn't see any parts and that's it!! 





They came out really good and hopefully will last for a few days. So again if you would like to see a video on how I take them out, comment below!

  1. This came out so cute! I have been meaning to try Bantu knots for a while now. Iv'e been wearing weaves throughout the winter and i'm ready to let my natural hair out as the temps start to warm up. How long does this style typically last?

    1. Thanks for reading and stopping by Nicole! For me, this will last about 4-5 days. I wish my hair was longer to pineapple so it could last longer! Let me know how yours turn out when you try it!!

  2. Beautiful result! Your hair looks amazing! I've tried this once but my hair came out so stringy looking...I may have had too much product in it. I'm gonna take a peek at your video to see how you did it! And yes I would like to see a video on how you took your knots out.

Morphe Brush Review

Happy Tuesday!! Just can't believe Christmas is next week!! Did you get all your shopping done? I did for the most part, now it's just putting things together lol!! Well this post is going to be a review on Morphe brushes. I'm sure you have heard the name and seen some of your favorite makeup artist using them. I purchased these at IMATS back in April and have been loving them. I already want to purchase more. So let's get into the reviews.



Eyes

(M411- Pointed Blender and M200-Deluxe Crease)
It is always important to blend, blend blend your makeup!! I do have a few blending brushes but I wanted to have a few backups when I clean them. I love how soft these brushes are and how well they blend out eye shadows. I mainly use the Pointed Blender(black bristles) for the the outer crease and the deluxe crease(brown bristles) for right above my lid. 

Face
(B1-Jumbo Fluffy Brush and M439-Deluxe Buffer)
I normally don't set my foundation with a powder and wanted to start doing s…

Have you tried the new Starbucks drink? It seems like it is missing something, like it needed to be sweeter or needed some saltiness. 
They recently opened a Zara in the mall near me! It is so nice in there, I only purchased one dress.








Fro Butter Emu Oil Review

Well I guess Summer is still trying to hold on lol. I was about to pack away all the Summer clothes but I should leave them out I guess. I'll go through all my Fall wardrobe in the meantime to see what I'll need when the weather gets cooler. Today I am sharing my review on Fro Butter Emu Oil. 

I don't know if I told you guys but I am one of Fro Butter's ambassadors for the next 6 months! I was so excited when I got the email about being chosen. You will be seeing post about their products more on here and my Instagram. 
A little background on this company before we hop into the review: 
Fro Butter is a Black Owned Business started in 2012 by owners Susana Stewart and Caroline Maina. They were in the market for affordable and organic hair products and it all started from there. 
I was introduced to this product last year when I received it in my Onyx Box. I really loved the product and so did my husband and son lol. Taken directly from the site, the Emu Oil is designed…
