Influenster Fierce Voxbox

Happy Monday loves!

Hope you all had a great weekend.

I think by now you’ve heard of Influenster by now, but if you haven’t, its a review type of website and if you’re lucky enough you can get a freebie box. It always changes from foods, beauty, fashion or even a mixture of both! Every time you finish these badges, you can get qualified for another Voxbox.

I was lucky enough to get the Fierce Voxbox which included:

Shea Moisture Argan Oil & Almond Milk Shampoo and Blow Out Creme

I love using Shea Moisture and trying out new products from their line. The shampoo and blow out are both made from Argan Oil, organic shea butter and almond milk. It smells so good! Retail price for the blow out creme is $10.99 and the shampoo is $8.99

Sinful Colors Kandee Johnson Anime “Kiss Goodnight”

I really can’t get over this color! Kandee Johnson was the first youtube beauty guru I ever watched. So to see her progress and collab with Sinful Colors, I was ecstatic that this came in the VoxBox! I’ve seen them sold at Walgreens for $1.99.

Madam C.J. Walker Softening & Silkening Brassica Seed Oil

It’s a lightweight hair oil that smooths and creates terrific shine for heat-styled hair. It has a light blend of spun sugar and red velvet cream to refresh hair. I love to use this for my baby hairs that just can’t keep calm! This hair oil retails for $26 and can find it at Sephora.

Vaseline Jelly

I’ve been using Vaseline ever since I was a kid, it’s never gone out of style. I just recently started to use Vaseline for my night cream. It’s still too soon to see results but I’m excited! You can find this at any store for around $2.50 depending on where you shop.

L’Oreal Ever Pure Moisture Care Review

Happy Wednesday loves!

I recently took the plunge and dyed my hair a medium red brown, so when Influenster sent me the L’Oreal Ever Pure Moisture Shampoo, Conditioner and 10-in-1 Elixir, I couldn’t have been more excited! I don’t know about you, but when I dye my hair, I feel like sometimes the color dies down and fades away within a few weeks. Or maybe that’s just the reds. :p

The Claims:

*For the Shampoo and Conditioner, it claims that it’s a moisturizing formula with Rosemary flower botanical that quenches dryness,and keeps color pure for up to 4 weeks.

*Elixir: Nourishes, Hydrates, Soothes, Repairs, Density, Smooth, Textures, Strengthens, more softness and adds shine.

**100% Sulfate-Free, Paraben-Free, Free of Harsh Salts and Dye-Free

My Impressions:

I personally love it. The shampoo and conditioner both smell heavenly (a hint of rosemary and floral scents). My favorite would have to be the 10-in-1 elixir. It really did make my hair feel softer and hydrated.

I definitely look forward trying the Deep Nourishing, Repair & Defend and the Frizz-Defy lines!

3rd Annual Au Natural Love Hair Conference

Hello guys!

I’ve lately been getting used to my curly hair and I’m thinking about starting to go natural (hair care). I was again on Eventbrite (woo-h00!) and came across a hair conference in Long Beach. I signed up for their 3rd Annual Au Natural Love Hair Conference.

Located at the Grand Event Center in Long Beach, I approached the room and I was greeted with a friendly face.As I checked in, I received a swag bag full of hair care goodies.

There were giveaways, speakers, talks, light refreshments, some entertainment and even a panel.

In the back of the room, there were a few vendors selling their products.

The Panelists:

Thomas TJ Loftin: He’s a business coach and motivational speaker. He spoke about creating and helping each other’s businesses.

Lisa Puerto: She’s an international speaker and bestselling author. She’s the first to write a book about real estate for the youth! If only they would have thought about that in my childhood.

Courntey Danclar: After working mostly for corporate, Courtney traveled to West Africa and thus created Ankara Nation Inc, which is mostly African clothing.

Tracy Sanders: An attorney and author of “Natural Hair in the Workplace: What Are Your Rights?” I never knew an interviewer could deny you after your interview due to natural hair!

Dr. Bambou Ada Diagne: A Nobel Peace Recipient and CEO of International Ventures and Trade, specifically Imports/Exports. She actually started as a midwife, and she mostly exports and imports products from West Africa.

I learned a lot of things business-wise and more about natural hair! I’ve always heard about co-wash but I never knew what it was, until that day! The same with pre-poo.

The creator of this beautiful event was Kelsie Lyn who is a makeup artist and a natural hair specialist.

What I loved the most about this event was it wasn’t all about hair. It’s about loving yourself as you are naturally.

I look forward to the next Au Natural Love Hair Conference!
