Design Essentials Coconut & Monoi Review & Demo

Hey luvs!
Tonight I want to share a review and demo I did for Design Essentials. They sent me some products from their Coconut & Monoi line and I had a lot of fun styling my hair with them. 


Check out this gorgeous hair I achieved with their Deep Moisture Milk Soufflé and Deep Moisture Oil Treatment.


I wore these curls for a casual day out with my sister and nieces who came to visit last week. They were pretty much EVERYTHING!

I hope you all are doing well.  Late last week I dove into my September curkBOX which was full of products by Lottabody.


Four full size products plus some other goodies all for just $25!! The value of this box from month to month is seriously amazing.

I decided to go for a bantu knot out using most of these products and of course filmed a demo and review. Before we jump into the video, here is a look at my bantu knot out results.

Alikay Twist Out

Hey lovelies!

Last month I had the pleasure of shopping the curlBOX office at their holiday party. Two of the products I snatched up were these products from the Aalikay Naturals line

  
I had never tried this brand before so I was excited to have them gifted to me.

This weekend I decided to give them both a try. I used the Honey And Sage Deep Conditioner to both cleanse and condition my hair. 

  
Let me just say, this stuff right here is amazing! The thing that really won me over with this product is that when I was done and my hair was soaking wet, I went to squeeze my hair of the excess water and there was nothing, NOTHING!! My hair had soaked up all of the water! Talk about moisture retention! I have never had a product allow my hair to do that.

Once my hair was clean and conditioned I applied the Moisture Rich Hair Parfait to set my twist out and hopefully seal in all that water.

  
This product is nice and thick! I applied it to all of my hair and twisted it

  
In the morning my hair was FULL of moisture, and the definition was everything!

   
  I have no idea what took me so long to try this product line, but I will definitely be trying more.
That’s it for now.

XOXO,

September curlBOX Product Review

Hi luvs!

After wearing my mini twists for about a month I was finally able to try out my September curlBOX products. The box included 10-in-1 Renewal products by Shea Moisture. 

  
I’ve almost never met a product by this brand that I didn’t like so I was really excited to try them out. Here are the results

Quenching Coconut Curls

Hi beauties!

Today I want to talk about a product line I recently tried by OGX Beauty. Last month this great brand sent me several products and one of the lines was the Quenching Coconut Curls line. The shear name got me excited and so naturally these were the first of the products I decided to try out.



I was a little reluctant to try the shampoo just because well, I don’t do shampoo! I’m a cowash girl. Shampoos despite how rich they are in other ingredients tend to make my hair feel really dry (especially if the have sulfate in them.) This shampoo, while rich in some great ingredients like coconut oil and citrus oils does also include sulfate. But, I gave it a try.

Surprisingly my hair was pretty soft after shampooing! It wasn’t the feel I get from cowashing but much better than a typical shampoo. I followed up with the conditioner which I loved! Really good stuff. But what really did it for me was this stuff right here



AMAZING!! I twisted my hair using the curling hair butter and the twist out was life!





I will definitely be using these products again, especially  the curling hair butter. Yasss!
