Fabulous Hair!

24 Jul

Hey Friends!

I must tell you,  I’m enjoying this Hair Journey I’ve been on lately.
I’ve been taking Hairfinity for close to 5 1/2 months and loving the progress! I know you guys hear me talk about it often, but I get so many emails, questions, etc in regards to my hair, I figured the best way to keep you updated was to make post from time to time about my hair. So currently this is where I’m at with my hair:

Before Hairfinity

5 months w/ Hairfinity

As you can see, it’s much shinier, healthier, and it’s getting to the length I’ve been longing for!

I continue to use the Essentious Products and keep various oils within my reach! My favorite are Argan Oil, Jojoba Oil, and Coconut Oil. I use the coconut oil the most, but use the others when I want to change it up from time to time!

My hair stylist encouraged me to get layers the last time I went, but the idea of cutting my hair was quite frightening (especially since I’m trying to grow it out!) After thinking about it, I realized she wanted me to get layers to give my hair a little bit more body, but keep my length. So it was a bit longer but I got a few layers and she made it quite even. Whatcha think?

 

For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you saw it first!

My husband tried to be funny once and say, well of course your hair is going to grow after 5 1/2 months. NO. He is Incorrect. The year before when I first cut my hair, I cut it very short.

April 2011

Compare that to when I started Hairfinity in January. I cut my hair only twice between this time and they were very small trimmings. If you compare this picture to when I started Hairfinity In January, you can see the difference that Hairfinity has made in my hair growth journey!

I’m just truly grateful and will continue to do what I can to take care of my hair and keep it healthy! I’m currently working on getting some protective styles to help it grow longer in the fall. I currently have not been taking hairfinity for the last few weeks due to running out but please believe there is another set of pills on the way! In the meantime, I’m keeping myself and my hair Healthy!!! I think the auto send program with Hairfinity is the best, because if you forget (like i did), the company doesn’t,and your Hair Vitamins are still on the way!!!

Just something to keep in mind!!!

I will continue to update you guys periodically from time to time on my Hair Journey! If you want to follow my journey along with receiving my hair and beauty tips, please do not hesitate to like MrsSPJ on facebook!!!!

Until Next Time, Mrs SPJ 🙂

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!

Until Next Time, Much Love, Mrs. SPJ 🙂

Hair-rrific!

21 May

Hey Guys!

Sorry, it’s been a few days since I’ve posted!
I’ve been really busy with work and too tired at work to even comment,
BUT I wanted to give you all a Hair Update!
Many of you know how hard it is to grow out a cut, and I’m happy to say
with great hair care and Hairfinity, I’m finally getting to a point where I’m embracing my hair!

So for those of you who have been following my progress, I just recently got a relaxer! I wanted to show you my progress from my 1st relaxer before starting Hairfinity until now

Relaxer BEFORE Hairfinity

Before really developing a great Hair Regimen, and dealing with a short cut I didn’t know WHAT to do with, I realized short hair was not for me. Yes it was cute, but I didn’t know how to manage it, and this made it disastrous for me. I decided it was time for me to grow my hair out and really learn how to take care of my hair. Now, I’m in my 4th month of Hairfinity, and just got a relaxer. Since I’ve started taking care of my hair, I’m now growing healthy hair and loving it!!!!!

In my 4th month of Hairfinity AFTER Relaxer

Sorry, I’m not smiling in my most recent photo! I was tired! Long day of working and getting hair done, but look at all that hair growth! It usually takes me forever to grow out my hair and in a short time, I was able to grow it longer than I even expected! The cool thing is, this is my hair growing out on top of having to get it cut a few times so that the cut would grow out properly! I’m telling you ladies, you take the time to truly care for your hair, make sure it’s moisturized and you aren’t using harsh chemicals on your hair, you will see growth and a change in the strength and overall feeling of your hair! I’m hoping to continue on my hair journey and to grow my hair out and eventually let the tapered back section of my hair grow out. It has grown out tremendously but being that my hair was still short in the back I had to keep it cut down a bit!

I’m truly happy with my progress and willing to help any of you that are interested to see progress as well! Do you have any hair questions? I’d be more than willing to answer them!

Until Next Time, Much Love, MRS. SPJ:)

Happenings & hair!

7 May

So much has happened since I last posted!!!

1. I received my Certification in Volunteer Management! I’ve already received my B.A. and M.A. so, I’m excited to add something more to my level of knowledge! They had a wonderful graduation feast and I had lots of fun!

2. I was a chaperone for my job’s Mega Party! We had lots of fun and I decided not to workout that morning! Boy was that a good call, being the fact I walked nonstop with 4 cute 2nd graders!

3. I celebrated Cinco De Mayo with some delicious Mexican food from Santo Coyote! Love that place!

4. UPDATE-For the first time ever, I pre-shampooed my hair, and let me tell you, I will ALWAYS do this from now on. Pre-shampooing or Pre-poo as some call it, is a treatment that you do to your hair before you shampoo. Hairfinity, reveals in their Faster Hair Growth Secrets, that it can help infuse your hair with moisture! Since I have all of the Essentious products (minus the daily moisturizer), I decided to give it a try. I decided to Pre-Shampoo my hair with Organic coconut oil. I applied it to my hair and left it on with a plastic cap about 45 minutes (Typically you should only do 30 min, but I lost track of time).

Afterwards, I rinsed my hair a bit, then proceeded to shampoo my hair. Following washing my hair, I gave myself a protein treatment, and sat under the dryer with a cap on my hair for 20 minutes. Afterwards, I followed with a moisture treatment. You all may be wondering why I did so much, but you have to remember I constantly do Zumba about 4 times a week and I spend this Friday in the sun, with a hat on my head and it was 90 degrees outside. When I got home, my hair felt dead and lifeless. It was very dry and felt kind of brittle. Therefore both protein and moisture were lacking in my hair!

I moved forward with my moisturizing treatment for 15 minutes, and then rinsed my hair out. I then got under the dryer for a lil bit after wrapping it, to start drying my hair. My hair is very thick and I sometimes don’t like the look of it, after getting from up under the dryer, so I put a heat protectant on my hair, and decided to blow dry it for 10 minutes. Typically not something I would do in trying to get my hair healthy, but hey, we all have to do what we have to do that works best for us! I decided to run my flat-iron over a few of my ends just to give it a bump.

Let me tell you.

I was pleasantly pleased with my results! Because it was late, I didn’t think to take a picture just then, but I did the next day!

The previous picture shows my hair WITHOUT any heat being put on it the next day NOR any product. Now you guys may so, of course you didn’t put anything on your hair you just washed it the day before! But let’s be honest and real, when you have dry hair, you typically ALWAYS have to put something on your hair, always do something to your hair, but what it comes down to is the healthy regimen you’ve adapted for your hair. Here is one up close:


That’s the natural shine from using products that are suited for my hair, and making sure to take care of my hair! Usually I could only get a look like this using lots of heavy products or going to the salon. If you invest in the right products you can get healthy looking hair yourself! I’m still taking Hairfinity (just started my 4th bottle) and looking forward to even more growth! I’m having fun on this hair journey!!!

Just wanted to share with you all an update, and inspire you to stop paying all these ridiculous prices to go to the salon and take healthy hair into your own hands rather it’s relaxed or not!

Until Next Time, Much Love,

Mrs. SPJ 🙂

P.S.-Do you have any hair tips?

Tired Tuesday, Fab Hair!

24 Apr

Yep that’s it!
I’m feeling super duper tired today! I’ve just been so super busy at work, I just can’t seem to get myself together! I pushed myself really hard in Zumba and that may have a lot to do with it, but also at work, I was moving boxes, and it just put me a lil beyond tired last night. I remember going up to the bedroom and laying down on the bed for a second. Before I knew it, it was 6am this morning!!! That goes to show you exactly how tired I was!

On another note, I’m still working hard to take care of this hair of mine! I’m still taking those Hairfinity pills, and getting ready to order another bottle. I think it’s an overall awesome Vitamin, and it’s just a plus that it is helping my hair grow back! Here I am at the end of my 3rd month, and I’m still pleased with the results! Check me out:

Before Hairfinity

Finishing my 3rd bottle

Although my hair is a bit on the wild side in the last picture, you can truly see that it has grown! I have even added a bit of color to it to make it darker! It’s fuller and much healthier than it was in the previous picture! My goal has been to really grow out this haircut and see what I can do with my hair! I’ve continued to use the Essentious Line of products (love them) and they truly work! They keep your hair clean and moisturized without stripping the hair of it’s natural oils! Due to me working out so much, I make sure to keep my hair wrapped during workouts and that is under a silk scarf. After I leave the gym, I make sure that my hair is dry and I put coconut oil on it as well.

Ladies, as always you can still get your Free Hair Regimen! AT NO COST TO YOU! and YES, this is for ALL Hair types! All you have to do is go here:
Free Hair Care Regimen

You know I’m constantly looking out for my lovely ladies! That is why I was so happy to giveaway some eye shadow to you all on Friday! I promise you, I love giveaways and will be doing them from time to time!

What is your go to hairstyle? How do you take care of your hair? I would love to know!

Until Next Time, Much Love, MRS. SPJ 🙂

Happy Healthy Hair Growing 🙂

Hair Update

22 Mar

Hey Friends!

I’m coming at you pretty excited because Today is my Friday at work! Yep, I don’t work tomorrow and plan on relaxing and enjoying myself!!! As far as today, I wanted to update you with my hair and then tomorrow, share with you some lovely beauty products I’ve been enjoying!

My Hair has been growing very healthy since I started taking Hairfinity. Just look for yourself:

Starting 2nd month of Hairfinity

Starting 3rd month of Hairfinity

I wish I had pictures where my part was on the same side so I can truly show you, but to keep hair healthy you should change it up from time to time (which I do!) I credit the Hairfinity Vitamins, a healthy hair regimen, and great products for my hair success! I’m still only a few days in to my 3rd bottle, and I’m very happy with my results. The Essentious line is wonderful right along with Hairfinity! I tell ya, I don’t get paid by any of these companies, and wanted to try all of these products ON MY OWN! I’m so happy that I did and look forward to hopefully purchasing more vitamins in the near future! I knew after my first hair results came in, that they would only continue to get better! Ladies, I can’t stress enough, how important it is to properly moisturize, wash, and condition your hair! It makes a difference!!

At one point, I even thought, maybe Ill go natural, but I don’t know. I don’t think that is for me right now. I’m enjoying the style and the feel of my hair. It has nothing to do with not accepting myself “naturally” but simply just loving my hair in its current state. It’s healthy, moisturized, and growing. I’m sure there will come a time where I will want to venture further into the world of Natural Hair, but for now, I’m just enjoying the process of growing it out! I’m using great products on my hair, and less heat (which makes a HUGE difference.)

 

What about you? What is your hair regimen? What is your go to style when it comes to hair? Let me know and share your thoughts! I’d love to hear them!!

Until Next Time, Mrs. SPJ 🙂

 

Red Friday & Hair

24 Feb

Yay its Friday!

I seem to be so happy on Fridays lately! Maybe its because I’ve been so swamped at work that Fridays have served as a celebration of getting away! This weekend, I plan to clean and relax. Sounds like a good plan to me! I’ve been so busy I believe I need a weekend to chill! Something I’m totally looking forward to!

Im feeling quite great today also, because Im noticing a difference in the overall health of my hair. I believe that despite the fact I had to get my hair cut after my last relaxer, My hair is growing and its not as dry as it use to be. This is me after my relaxer in January.

image

I had yet to start taking hairfinity and my hair was a bit dry. Here is me a week after my recent relaxer.

image

The sides of my hair are growing, and so is the front! The back of my hair has been growing a lot as well. I had to get a cut the last time due to the nature of my hair cut and in order for it to grow out properly, but I think after almost 6 weeks of being on Hairfinity, Im doing great! The main reason I wanted to show you all this picture though is to see how the texture of my hair has changed!! It’s ore moisturized!

Also, if you notice Im wearing a vibrant BRIGHT red lipstick! I’ve always wanted to wear red lipstick but wasnt sure if I could pull it off.  Ive seen some in red lipstick and they look crazy! My sephora chic, Brittney explained to me that it can be pulled off if you make your eye shadow simple or neutral. If I want a pop of color, keep it minimal. Well I did, and Im VERY pleased with my results! Ive been getting compliments all day!!

For those of you wanting to know what else Im doing for maintaining my hair, Im washing it weekly, using organic oil as a natural moisturizer, keeping my hair wrapped up at night and now during workouts. I notice the overall health of my hair has improved since I started keeping my hair wrapped during Zumba! Zumba was killing my hair!  Im using the Essentious Products for washing my hair and moisturizing. For protein treatments, I really enjoy using Ions Reconstructor! Its working for me and Im really happy!

So today Im rocking a bright look and vibrant shiny hair! Yep! Im feeling pretty great. What are u up to? Hopefully loving life, being fab, and looking forward to the weekend!!

Until Next Time, Much Love,

Mrs. SPJ 🙂

Have a great weekend folks!
