Book Review: The Glamtwinz Guide To Longer, Healthier Hair

I don't know if it just me, but the weekends go by a little too fast lol! I look up and it is time to get ready for the school and work week. We got a lot of wedding stuff done over the weekend and of course I'll update you guys in the wedding series. Did you guys do anything fun this weekend? Today I am going to be doing a book review and it has been a while since I've posted one.

If are you are not familiar with this duo, they are an Atlanta based YouTube sensation that is famous for their long locks of hair and makeup tutorials. They recently wrote a book that gives an insight on how they achieved their hair length. I was really interested in reading this book to learn more natural hair tips and tricks plus I wanted to know how to get long hair too lol.

It did take me a little while to read through this book but I'm glad I finished it cover to cover. The GlamTwinz get so many questions on how they grew their hair so long, how long did it take and so on. I am a fan because it is so long, beautiful and healthy. It shows when they do hair tutorials that they really take great care of their hair and take so much pride in keeping it healthy.

I really love how they broke down everything that they do from washing, deep conditioning and trimming their hair. Each chapter is dedicated to explaining each process in their hair routine which is great so you don't get confused and can concentrated on each step. They gave some really great analogies on how important these hair care steps are. For example, they compared hair to growing a plant. That plant needs water, sunlight and soil in order to thrive and grow. If you don't water the plant, keep it in the dark and don't have healthy soil, that plant will not survive. Just like the plant, you hair needs those important things (well not soil lol) in order to be healthy and grow. I like that they stress the importance of taking care of the inside of your body as well as the outside.

The only thing is I wish they gave some product recommendations. I know that may of been a little hard due to people running out, trying the product and complain about not liking it or not working. There may be people who do not watch YouTube or know who the GlamTwinz are. When they are reading this book, they may just be starting on their natural hair journey or may not know what products are good to start with or try out. It would of been nice to see a few.

What I really love about this book is that they stressed the importance of being patient. They stressed it throughout the book but at the end they really broke down how important patience is. I would know that first hand with my hair journey lol. There were so many times I wanted to give up and not want to deal with my hair. I had to be patient to learn about my hair, know what it likes and doesn't like, how it reacts to certain products and just how to work with it. I find being patient the most important thing when starting on a natural hair journey or any hair journey. Long, healthy hair does not happen overnight. You have to take the necessary steps in order to achieve that goal you have in mind,

Overall, I really enjoyed reading this book. I learned a lot of great tips and tricks that I can apply to my hair routine. It was very well written and proud of the GlamTwinz for writing a successful book. I highly recommend this book. Honestly, this book isn't just for those on a natural hair journey, I feel anyone who wants to grow longer and healthier hair can benefit from this book.

So that is it for this book review. What is the last book you read? Comment below and let me know. See you guys Thursday.

I tried the new Cascara Latte from Starbucks and I liked it. 

Yesterday we celebrated Dr. Martin Luther King Jr and wanted to leave you with one of my favorite quotes from him. I'm so thankful for his fight for everyone to be treated as equals and fairly. Also for showing us there are peaceful and non violent ways to fight for justice.

"If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward".  Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 


  1. I'm glad you enjoyed the book and have learned tips from them on your own natural hair journey! Its too bad they didn't tell you exact products because I'm sure it would be easier for you.

    1. Yea it would of been but overall a really good book. Thanks for reading Tanya!

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.

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.

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…
