YES TO HYDRATED HAIR

I say Yesto soft, supple, hydrated curls and coils. I’m a sucker for a good hair mask. Finally found another one that gets it right, is natural and smells amazing. Yes! Yes! and Yes! I tried out the Yesto Coconut Ultra Hydrating Replenishing and Moisturizing Hair Clay Mask last week and my hair is so happy, detangled and super hydrated. I’ll be trying the Yesto Brightening Hair Clay Mask and the Frizz Fighting Smoothing hair mask next. 2019 has been the year for using clean products with minimal to no harmful ingredients. For those who have taken this journey to living a clean beauty lifestyle, you know it’s not easy to purge of the old and bring in the new, so having the Yesto products to begin my clean journey has been a dream.

Before applying the hair clay mask, my hair was tangled from not washing or detangling it for almost two weeks, so I wasn’t expecting this mask to really do much as my hair was in pretty bad shape and most of the time when it’s like this, no product can really make getting it back into tip-top shape any easier. I thought I’d try something different and apply the mask to barely damp hair with a light spritz of water before shampooing. I let the mask sit for about 20 minutes, rinsed it out while finger detangling my hair. Detangling was a breeze because the mask really softened my hair and loosened up the tangles. After styling, my hair was very voluminous, hydrated and tangle free. This mask is a new fave and will now be apart of my hair routine. My kinks and coils are so happy now.

One of my all-time favorite things about the mask would have to be the creamy consistency. It went on smooth and is by far one of the creamiest textures I used thus far.  It’s super soft to the touch, not to mention, all of their products smell AMAZING. I haven’t tried the face mask, but I’m thinking if the hair mask are amazing, the face mask must be equally amazing. Stay tuned for a face mask review in the coming weeks.

Visit Yesto to shop all the Yesto products. Hopefully you’ll find some amazing things that you can incorporate into your skincare or haircare routine.

Till next time!

HEALTHY HAIR WITH MYKSILK

My hair has been getting so spoiled these past few months from amazing conditioners and shampoo,s to amazing hair cuts from my new favorite natural hair specialist and now, I get to rest these kinks and coils  on the finest of silk pillowcases. I own a satin pillowcase, but nothing beats the quality of some good ol fashion silk. The satin pillowcase is just fine, but I can surely tell the difference after sleeping on the MyKSilk pillowcase for the past few weeks. I’ve partnered with MyKSilk and they sent me the most amazing pillowcase a girl could ever want in the prettiest purple too. Some of us ladies don’t often think about the fabrics we rest our lovely locks on every night, but believe it or not, it makes a huge difference in the health and wellness of our hair. I’ve been working real hard to make sure my hair grows healthy and long for my pageant in April and one of the ways I’m trying to achieve this goal is by being more conscious of the fabrics I rest my head on every night. Cotton is an absolute no no for my hair. It causes major tangles and dry out. Using the MyKSilk pillowcase has made a huge difference with that. My hair has less tangles and I noticed my hair is retaining a lot more moisture than usual.  I know my hair looks a bit dry in these pics, but this is day 11 of an old wash n go style. Not bad, huh?

Keep scrolling for a special gift especially for you…

 

Besides being way more affordable than most silk, the MyKSilk pillowcases are chemical-free, and made of 100% Mulberry silk. In other words, your hair and skin will thank you in the end. Tis the season for spreading the lovely, so in honor of the month of love I’m offering all my readers 15% off the entire MyKSilk website when you use code: Deidra15. Treat your hair to a silky experience this month. And, if you’re not on the hunt for a pillowcase, MyKSilk sells a plethora of other items you should definitely check out, like silk sleepwear, silk accessories and even silk bed sheets. I’m pretty confident there is something for everybody, so treat that loved one to some silk so fine.

Sincerely,

HEALTHY HAIR WITH FORMULATE+A GIVEAWAY

Taking it back to my roots and bringing you all the hippie 70’s vibes on this blogpost today. For those who have been following along for the past year you know about the ups and downs and the whole roller coaster I’ve been on trying to get this hair to behave. I’d like to extend my deepest apologies to those who hear me complain on a daily basis on my IG stories, LOL, you guys are the real MVP’s.  I’m such a drama queen sometimes but am so grateful to have a head full of unruly hair but sometimes this sister needs a break, LOL. #thestruggleisreal. Thankfully, this journey with Formulate has been nothing less than AMAZING. For all the deets on where my journey started with Formulate click here. Having kinky coily hair doesn’t have to be a daunting task. On this formulate journey, I’ve learned that a good hair cut, normal ph water conditions and some amazing shampoo and conditioner is the perfect formula to healthy hair. Before using the Formulate line I had hard time maintaining a healthy moisture to protein balance, my kinks and coils were lifeless, I experience more shedding than usual and detangling was an all-day event. If you’re like me, you know how wash day can be. I’m currently on my 3rd application of the Formulate haircare system and the results are amazing.  I have to be honest I was concerned the shampoo would dry out my hair like every other shampoo because my hair is so fragile and prone to extreme dryness with any shampoo application but the formulate shampoo not only smells amazing (I have the tidal scent) but is gentle on my delicate coils, provides a light lather and gets my scalp and strands squeaky clean. Not to mention, my coils are getting a much-needed hair therapy and really loving the creamy consistency of the conditioner. My detangling sessions are under 20 minutes and my hair is back to its usual thickness with minimal hair shed. Simply put, my hair has made a complete 360.

Okay, okay, let me stop bragging and starting gifting. Keep scrolling for all the Formulate giveaway deets. I’m so excited!
