Going Natural Just Isn’t For Everyone! | I’m Being Relaxed Shamed!

Going Natural is a big deal for some, I get it! Life changing, liberating, and a “doing it for the culture experience “. I totally get that, and I’m about it for those that opt to go that route. I’m a pro choice kind of woman, I feel that all people should live as they want and do whatever (within reason) to themselves that makes them happy.

For me personally, going natural isn’t an option, few know that I have once tried it. I did it for a little over a year, and I despised it terribly. It’s way to much work for me, not to mention it’s a bit more expensive. Relaxing my hair is better for my lifestyle. Relaxers make my hair more manageable and saves me lots of time on wash days.

So I’ve been back on the creamy crack for just about 6 years. My favorite relaxer to use is SmartPerm.

Normally after washing and it relaxing my hair, I grease my scalp with one of a few of my favorite grease products and moisturize the length of my hair with coconut oil. I love the scent of coconut oil and love the softness that it gives my hair.

My current favorite shampoo and conditioners are by L’Oréal.

But as I said, it’s each person’s choice as to what they want to do with their hair! Just because you feel its right for you doesnt mean that the next person will feel the same. And I could never see myself giving anyone a had time for wanting to be natural just because I dont like it for myself.  Nor will I try to convince a person to relax! Its your hair, your scalp to make that decision.

These comments literally have no chill.. HAHAHA WTF

Be sure to watch my YouTube video response to being “Relaxed Shamed”!

What Vick’s Vapor Rub Did To Her Scalp!

Please be sure to watch my lastest video on using Vapor Rub as hair growth treatment… 

I’ve been using vapor rub products on my scalp for months time without having any issues. Though I recently heard of a story that wasn’t as successful as mine. 

 Before trying any internet hack or trend please do your own research and don’t just try something without knowing all the facts. And especially know yourself! If you know are most likely to suffer from allergic reactions or have any type of skin sensitivities think twice before starting something new or better yet consult with a doctor.

How To Use Vick’s on The Scalp:

Apply it to the scalp just as you would hair grease! You can leave it on the scalp  overnight or wash it out after letting it arouse the scalp maybe 10mins – 20mins (or when you see fit).

Though if you would like to leave it on the scalp to treat itchy scalp, you can use it as much as you need to, but you will need a clarifying shampoo to remove the Vick’s build up.

A young lady was inspired to try this method to stimulate her scalp trigger growth. She applied the VapoRub to her scalp and left it overnight (I’ve done this many times).  She suffers from sinus issues, she awakened the next morning only to discover that her sinuses had drained into her ear.

VapoRub is decongestant, which caused her sinuses to breakup and drain.

Be Ware Of Fake Popular Makeup Brands

Here are a few tips when buying makeup online! 

Always make sure that you are buying from a reliable source. Replicating makeup brands seems to be really easy these days, and the products look really legit!! Almost anyone can be fooled by them! Especially online!

When buying from online Market Places, always reach out to the seller to see if they can send you a few more detailed pictures of the products (lots of times they use a stock photo from the brand’s website). Because that picture will tell the story! Look for misspellings and defects in the packaging.

My recent purchase was intentional! I wanted them to test the actual quality! Some fakes can be REALLY Good!!

Also reading a seller’s or store’s feedback ratings can be very helpful!! This gives you insight on whether buyers are having good luck with the store and if they are pleased with their purchase. And more often than not,  buyers leave product photos to help you with your decision!! 

Reading feedback and comments is a must for me, this determines if I am going to take a chance with the seller.

 

Though buying these products is risky business, sometimes its very worth the little money spent and the time spent waiting on the products to arrive.

The quality of these fake ColourPop items are not the best but they were not the worst I have purchased. I am not a advocate for buying these foreign fakes… I am merely sharing my buying experiences with you guys to help you make good buying decisions.

I would always suggest buying your cosmetics from the source, or authorized seller to insure that they authentic!

Rice Water Hair Trend! How To Make It Yourself!!

Rice water has been trending really heavy lately on Youtube, it’s like a organic miracle super potion (as they all say)! But I am really enjoying using My Fermented Rice Shampoo and Conditioner! DIY rice water is more so new to me, and more of a trial for me.

There are so many YouTube trends that it’s starting to become hard to keep up with, but I decided to try this because it seemed pretty harmless and there are a few African American doctors on YouTube speaking very positively about the rice water rinse to promote hair growth.

SkinnyMint 28 Day TeaTox & Fat Burner Gummies

Today is the first official day of my Teatox! I have always wondered what these diet teas would taste like and if they honestly worked. These teas tastes really good! Almost tastes just like an English Breakfast tea. I enjoy drinking hot teas, very relaxing. 

I use organic honey to sweeten the tea and if I have fresh lemon, I’d add a slice or two.

Though I don’t add any lemons to my night time tea as the citrus will cause you to lay awake in bed when you really really want to get sleep. But if you’re not in the final stages of your night and don’t mind an extra boost then by all means enjoy some lemon in your tea.

I’m looking to shed at least 10-15lbs, I still want to maintain a healthy look and weight.
