Fall Favorites 2014- Hair

Its double does Tuesday!! Lol!! This is the last post in my Fall Favorites series. So let's get into Fall Hair Care!!

Moisturize from the Inside Out

Not only do you have to take care of the outside of your body, you should also take care of what's inside. I did stress the importance of drinking plenty of water with the last post and it is still as important. This is my favorite cup that I take with me everyday to work and just drink water all day. I try to refill this about 4 times during the day. I've noticed a difference in my skin and hair since I've cut out the juice and soda consummation.

Leave-In Conditioners

When it starts to get colder outside, you want to protect your hair from the harsh winds and cold air. It helps to really keep your hair moisturized. I do switch up the products I use on my hair but using a leave-in doesn't change. It really helps with keeping my hair moisturized and retaining the moisture in my hair. I still love my Hello Curlies Leave in and started using the Garnier Fructis Leave in when I straighten my hair. There will be a review on this soon.

Retaining The Moisture

I tend to reach for heavier hair creams and oils during the colder weather. I'm searching for a Shea Butter based hair cream to try out but I have been using this sample of Bee Mine Cream Moisturizer and have been loving it. A more detailed review will be coming with my Brown Box Hair Product Review series. Another moisturizer I still love is my Hello Curlies Buttermilk Moisturizer. Its one of the best ones I've used on my hair. I still use my staple Coconut Oil which works so well with my hair. Also using water before applying any product helps with retaining moisture.

Deep Conditioning

It doesn't matter if you wear your hair straight, wavy or curly, deep conditioning your hair is so important. Your hair needs that extra conditioning if you use a lot of heat or have your ends exposed. Every time I wash my hair, I always deep condition it. It helps so much with giving some life back to your hair and preventing damage. These are a few of my favorites that I use very often. When I don't have time to sit for a while, I'll reach for Aussie 3 Minute Miracle which is amazing!! The times I do have some time to really deep condition, I'll use my Shea Moisture or Curl Max.

Heat Protectants

I decided to give straightening my own hair a try. I don't think I'll be doing it for long, I have so much hair and it hurts my hands lol. I did so much research on products to use to protect my hair. It became overwhelming because there are so many products out there. I decided to give Garnier Fruticis Blow Dry Cream and TRESemme Thermal Creations Heat Spray a try. So far, they have been working well for me. I haven't noticed any heat damage and my hair hasn't been dry at all. I'm working on reviews for these products and my routine for straightening my hair. It's so important to protect your hair from heat and try not to use high amounts of it. 

So that is it for my Fall Favorites for 2014. What are some of your favorite hair products? Have you tried any of the ones mentioned? Comment below and let me know. Stay warm and see you guys Friday!!

  3. I totally forgot about deep conditioning my hair this Fall season no wonder my hair has been feeling brittle and dull. I love that Shea Moisture deep conditioner and will be using that tonight!

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.


(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.

September Favorites

I can't get over the fact that October is here and it still feels like Summer. We had a brief Fall weekend but Summer was like Nope, I'm still hanging around lol!

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…
