Product Review: Naturelle Grow Healthy Hair Care

Mommy and Me Review: The three things I pay special attention to when deciding to purchase a hair care product are: Smell: if it doesn’t smell good or if it smells too sweet I will not buy it. Ingredient List: there are certain chemicals I would prefer not to have in my personal care products.

Because there are three of us with very thick curly … [Read more...]

Product Review: Ecostyler Olive Oil styling gel

OK Naturals, I'm not gonna lie when I say I had a hard time tracking this down in Denver.  Not the Eco Styling gel so much as the Olive Oil one.  I just assumed when I saw it was at a local Sally's online that it was the Olive oil one but it wasn't.  A little more digging on my part allowed me to find a Sally's with one that wasn't really that far away.  I was excited to say the least. I have been hearing so many Naturals RAVING about this stuff that I was in need to try it myself.  I've heard … [Read more...]

I detangle using a wide tooth comb and my denman brush. I should finger detangle, but I'm impatient. LOL I am the wash n go queen and just let my hair do whatever … [Read more...]
