Live Your Most Beautiful Life

I woke up this morning with my hair feeling really weighed down and stiff from the use of Wave Nouveau and KeraCare's Edge Tamer (another product that I put in my hair to just specifically smooth my edges). Wasn't thrilled at all. I was nervous about possible breakage, so I couldn't wait to wash my hair with Joico. This time, I didn't air dry it. I went through the process of carefully blow drying and flat ironing my hair (using…Continue

So I've been on a search for a set of protective styles that I like that are not only wearable in a professional setting, but also protect my hair as well with no heat necessary (I heat-style my bangs - that's it). Well, I found one! When I took down my wrap this morning, my hair felt silky and a bit wavy. The roots were especially flat and wavy. I moisturized my hair with MoroccanOil. My ends were a bit dry, so I added some…Continue

Overall: My hair felt a bit oily when I woke up this morning, so putting any more MoroccanOil (MO) in it at this point would be futile. I needed to wash/condition today it to get it back into shape. A co-wash is out of the question in such a situation, since a co-wash doesn't actually "cleanse" the scalp or hair (especially if you moisturize your hair with oil).
Technique/products: I used Joico's Moisture…Continue

Hair styling: Forgot to wrap my hair last night. Luckily, my hair pretty much looked just like it did yesterday, but I had to style my bangs and flatten the roots on the top of my head with a blow dryer to keep the style in check overall. Moisturized my hair with MO both morning and night (as usual). Noticed that my hair was a bit dry during the day so I added some Nigelle Cream Leave In Treatment to the ends for a bit more…Continue

Overall: My hair feels incredibly silky today.
Hair styling: Did the usual moisturization with MoroccanOil (MO) and gently twisted hair up into a butterfly clip. Blew my full bangs out a little bit with a blow dryer to get them flat after wearing a curler in them overnight.
Vitamins: I've already taken 2 out of the 3 daily "Hair, Skin and Nail" vitamins for the day. The brand: "Spring…Continue

Unwrapped hair this morning and my hair felt slick, strong and moisturized from last night's Joico products. Not really a big need to do any intense moisturization on my hair with MoroccanOil, so just lightly moisturized my hair instead.
During the day: Moisturized the ends a little bit with Nigelle'sCream Leave In Treatment. Figured it was necessary since I spent a little bit of time outside in the cold and…Continue

December 22, 2010: Bought Joico's Moisture Recovery Shampoo and Conditioner after doing a lot of research re: reviews on this particular line as well as the ingredients in the shampoo and conditioner. When I bought the products, I was thrilled that the products were marketed to intensely moisturize the hair and increase strength and elasticity in the hair. Not thrilled about the fact that the ingredients list included certain items (e.g., "Quadramine Complex") that…Continue
