Natural hair gives you a great deal of versatility in styling from wash n gos, twist outs, braids, protective styles, puffs – you name it! Today, I am showing you how I created a quick and easy head wrap updo using Cantu’s Head Wrap and styling products!
Sometimes you just need to slap on a hat, put on some trap music and get ish done! However, that’s not an easy feat when you have hair like mine that’s thicker than a porpoise !😩
I’ve been seeing the Curl Cap on social media and wanted to try it! At first, looking at the hat with pretty much the back missing admittedly looked kind of crazy. 😂 I’m giving you a full review on the Curl Cap and sharing my thoughts!
Mask Monday essentials compliments of Ole Henriksen. I’ve been using their Hygge HydraClay Detox Mask for over a year now and love the results. So, when I learned about the launch of their new Dark Spot Toner, I was anxious to give it a try!
Hyperpigmentation is one of the challenges I face with my skin. This toner boasts to reduce the look of dark spots, smoothes & brightens skin texture while targeting fine lines and wrinkles in as little as 7 days! After cleansing, I applied the Dark Spot Toner followed by the Hygge HydraClay Detox Mask and let it sit while poppin’ champagne! 🥂 for a in home spa treatment.
Babyyyyy I already love the results! Skin has a beautiful glow ✨, smooth texture without being irritated I have been using it about 3 days now and going to try it the full 7 days to see the full results! Subscribe to my blog for my final review!
Beauty with Ruby Tip:
Use the toner at night to maximize the overnight benefits. Apply sunscreen the next morning (🗣YOU NEED TO WEAR SUNSCREEN DAILY!) but especially after using this toner due to the active ingredients.
Do you use a toner as a part of your beauty routine?
Real nails! 🙌🏾 For yearssss, I wore full sets. I kind of went backwards in adventurousness because in college I legit only wore clear gel overlay. Like dats it. No bright colors to express my youth 😂. No nothing …unless I was going on vacation then I’d get a bright color! 👙⠀ ⠀ Then, I slowly but surely ventured into wearing colored polish but was still only pinks 💕and pastels. Now look at me, wearing black nails with a glitter ✨ nail to put some stank on it! 😂 ⠀ ⠀
When no chip manicures came out, I loved the idea of them being better for your nails than acrylics and lasting much longer than a traditional manicure 💅🏾 I was hooked!⠀ ⠀ Untilllll, I was introduced to dipped manicures by my cousin. Selena! Y’all, I’m👏🏾 never 👏🏾 going 👏🏾back! ⠀ ⠀
Last 2-3 weeks
Application time is about the same amount of ⏰ as a no chip
Tired of the same ole’ boring twist out with a part on the side?! lol Me too! So, I wanted to spice up my twist out game and decided to put some STANK on it by adding these cute connecting boxes on the side!
I’ve shared my review on the Hawaiian Silky Activated Charcoal line with you before but wanted to bring it back with their staple product: Hawaiian Silky 14-in-1 Miracle Worker!I was able to achieve a defined twist out by pairing it with the 14-in-1 Gel Activator.
My twist out was moisturized, soft and fluffy! Did you see that sheen thoooo? I was living my entire best life ready to show up and show out! With my hair being so soft and easy to maneuver, I was able to convert it to another style: pineapple with a bang!
“The edge control slicked these edges down while I wore my pineapple 🍍 like a crown👑!” (#Bars🔥 🎤🔥#EPComingSoon😂)
What do y’all think of the end results?
