Cera was nice enough to provide waxing during the party! I received an eyebrow wax and an Intern John “Vixen wax” (Brazilian Wax). Continue reading Cera Wax Studio. Home of the Ouch-less Wax!
I love the heat of summer time but avoid a heat stroke I have to keep my hair out of the way!
If your 4-type hair is like mine, it can be nearly impossible to slick down your hair without it looking plain greasy. Here’s some quick tips on how I achieve the perfect edges and ponytails!
Use your favorite moisturizer. – To protect my hair in ponytails I use Jamaican Castor Oil. The style might be used for days so I make sure this style doesn’t lead to breakage.
Grab Your Pomade or Gel – Stop everything you’re doing and pick up Murry’s Edge Wax! It lays 4-type hair. It provides a hold that isn’t hard and my edges don’t look greasy & fizzy after one hour.
Wrap ponytail with Hair Extensions (optional)- For the perfect Phony Pony I used Haute Kinky Hair – Haute Curls. I wrapped the hair extensions around my ponytail without taking out my braids. I also wrapped the hair extensions around the base of my ponytail to hide the tracks.

I have been wearing Dachè Hair for a few weeks. Russian course curly hair, that’s giving me life! Long story short: It’s quality hair and I LOVE IT! The people over at Dachè made a lace wig unit for me and it’s been so convenient.
It was a medium tight curl and it brought all the boys to the yard! It’s seen in the 10 Weave Commandments video.
The reason I say it’s high quality is because it met the following criteria: it didn’t shed, it didn’t tangle and it didn’t mat!
I went to the beach and had many days at the pool in my Dachè wig unit, and it still looks fabulous!

However, I have not worn makeup since my trip to Center for Plastic Surgery in Annandale, VA. When I walked out of the building I felt like my skin had new life!
Here’s what happened:
I opted for the Fire & Ice Facial. Baby, let me tell you, CPS exceeded all of my expectations! The Fire & Ice Facial is a medical grade facial, just a step below a chemical peel.This facial is great for anyone who battles acne or other skin ailments. My aesthetician , Marily Salls was amazing!’First they start off with the fire mask, which resurfaces your face by removing old, dry skin. It has a warming, tingling sensation and smelled like cookies to me! Next they apply the soothing ice mask. This mask uses hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, green tree extract, and peppermint to hydrate the skin and calm it down.At the end of my session I saw instant results! My complexion has been evened and brightened!I highly recommend this facial. The procedure goes for $150.00 and is well worth the money.Since this treatment I have been following up with CPS’s recommended skincare regimen products and boy do I feel beautiful! I use a retinol eye cream, a super serum, cooling serum and a great SPF!
I had the honor of being a panelist at the 2016 Philadelphia Natural Hair Show! The topic was Black Women & The Perception of Beauty within Media! Boy, was it a lively discussion! Colorism, texture discrimination, weaves vs natural hair were some of the topics that got the naturalista’s charged up!
The discussion was the inspiration for my video 5 Clap Backs for Weave Haters. I wanted to push the message that no one is less natural for wearing weave, which was a misconception during the panel.
After the panel I dived right into the festivities! The Philadelphia Hair Show was packed with vendors selling African print clothing, black owned hair care products and natural textured hair companies. I was in heaven!
I was super happy to have the opportunity to use Honeybee Gardens Cosmetics. They are an ALL natural, ALL organic line of makeup and skincare. Everything is tested to certify that all of the ingredients are in fact all natural and organic. This is perfect for anyone with skin allergies!
Beauty starts within! You have to mindful of what makeup is seeping through your pores. Honeybee Garden’s foundation gave me full coverage with a glow. Natural but still BEAT! The lip liner was smooth and gave me a beauty pink color. The lip gloss and it’s yummy scent topped it off for a long lasting gloss!

1. You Can Finally Throw Out Your Hot Comb
Ok, well maybe you can just put the hot comb in the drawer. But a straightening brush is a great alternative to hot combs and flat irons! Straightening combs ceramic technology makes it a little easier on your hair and speeds up the straightening time. Make sure you’re using a good heat protect product to minimize any heat damage.
2. It Can Give You A Blow Out Look
No, a straightening brush will not give a person with 4-type hair bone straight locks. However, it can give a fabulous textured blow out look! If you just want to be a disco queen or just stretch out your hair, a straightening brush might be for you!
3. Stretch Out Your Natural Hair
I wanted a big, long braid out and I used my straightening brush as a way to elongate my braid out. I used the brush on a low setting to stretch out my natural hair and braided my hair with Every Strand- Coconut & Shea Butter Curling Creme. Results: Instagram worthy hair!
A was given a straightening brush from Care ME. It sells for $39.99

Another natural hair brand…Is it any good? My answer: YES!
I loved this hair and I recommend it to anyone looking for a natural look!
- It’s Low Maintenance – The curl pattern doesn’t need a lot of products to make it look good. All I used was the steam from the shower to revive my curl pattern.
- The Texture is Soft and Manageable – I hate when hair gets hard! Even after weeks of wear, Kinkistry Hair stayed soft. There was absolutely NO tangling and it had minimal shedding.
- It Has Lasting Power – There was no hardening of the curl texture, no matting and little maintenance needed for revive the curl pattern. Those factors spoke volumes to me about the longevity of Kinkistry Hair Extensions. If you’re not constantly putting your hands in your hair, it’s going to last!
I’m wearing three bundles of Kinkistry Koilistics Extensions in 22”, 24”, 24”.
I was given Kinkistry hair for free, however all the opinions are mine.
1. If They’re Rude…LEAVE the store
Too many times, the African American community’s insecurities are capitalized on without any respect for the Black dollar. We all know that many people of color purchase weave . I suggest only buying products from a place that respects your buying power!
2. Ask Them to Take the Hair Out of the Package.
You need to feel how the hair flows through your fingers. Can you easily run your fingers from root to tip? Does it tangle when you shake it? If the hair doesn’t flow theres a chance the cuticles are running in different directions, thus limiting the shelf life of the hair extensions. You’ll probably get a good 2.5 weeks out of it at most. Also, if it tangles just from shaking it, you can only imagine what it going to do on the back of your head.
3. Find Natural Light to View the Hair
Hair stores have horrible lighting. The fluorescent lighting makes the hair look a different color when it would seem in the sunlight. I suggest holding the hair up to a window or somewhere that you can see the hair exactly how it is. Hair stores seldom have a return policy so check everything before buying.
4. Check Online First
