Beauty Weekend Pt 1

11 Jun

Hey Friends!

I had such a great weekend!
I spent time with the hubby, but more importantly, I spent some true quality time with me!
I did a lil shopping, and I was so grateful that Saturday started off with me opening, My  Shade of Brown Pillow Box!

 I was so happy to receive this subscription box, and out of all of the ones I’ve subscribed to, I must tell you this is by far my favorite!

My Shade of Brown is a company focused on delivering premium samples to women of color! For my first box, I got some great items:

Amazing Botanicals Poo Sample
NouriShea Mango Conditioner 
Komplex Blends Cosmetics Lipstick
Pookah Shea & Olive HairButter

Well, being that my hair needed to be washed, I thought, why not try out these products that came in the box! I might add though that despite my hair being dirty, I noticed a natural shine and fullness to my hair thanks to Hairfinity and Essentious!

I love my Essentious Products, but it doesn’t hurt to try other products as well! I decided I would Shampoo and condition my hair and add a rosewood brown rinse to it.

What did I think of the products?

(Rinse not included in pillow box)

Amazing Botanicals  Black Soap Poo- It freaked me out a bit at first, I mean, the scent was a bit strong and well it looked like.. uh…

However, it did a great job of cleaning my hair. You only need 2 oz of this stuff and it cleans the hair and gives it a natural shine!!  I think I may have used a bit much but it doesn’t require much to do the job!

Afterwards, I decided to use the rinse just to give my hair a darker but nice color. I put the rinse in my hair and let it sit for about 20 minutes with an additional 5 minutes under the dryer.

Afterwards, I put the NouriShea Mango conditioner in my hair. It definitely hydrated my hair and made it feel wonderful! Afterwards, I sat under the dryer and it was getting so hot I knew it was time for me to call it a night. I woke up, and after unwrapping my hair this is is what was left:

I immediately put some heat on it, and I must tell you the natural shine and final product, I’m truly proud of:

Although I’m still a fan of my Essentious products, I can’t knock that these other products definitely do work! I’m going to continue on my hair growth journey, taking Hairfinity Vitamins daily (Starting my next bottle soon!), and striving to have long healthy hair (That is until I decide to have a lil one)

As they always say, Happy Hair Growing! I will tell you more about my beauty weekend this week!

    Have you tried the mask yet? My face is so clean it hurts! I was just wondering if it was just me being sensitive or what? lol 🙂
