Alyssa Wallace - IG @foreverflawlyss



I need this style in my life! 


I was looking for cute styles to try out and I saw this double bun style (above) and thought it was the most awesome style ever! So I thought I would try this for myself, just to have a little fun with my hair and to do something different.


I'm not straying from my goals for this year, but I would love to see  how my hair would look. I saw this style and I knew that I just had to do it! So here is my style for the week: Double Buns On Fine, Natural Hair

Let's Get Started!

Healthy Hair Ingredient | Kimmaytube pH-Balanced Leave-In Conditioner

Kimmaytube 


I have been on a Kimmaytube binge lately on her "secrets" on her successful journey of hair growth and healthy hair. I've mostly watched her old-old videos from 2010 to 2014, before she cut her waist length hair to APL. She has a lot of great information on the structure of hair and other great topics that would be beneficial to your healthy hair journey...but I've found something I could use for myself.

Learning the importance of pH Balance in terms of healthy hair.

This topic has not only been on Kimmaytube, but one that has been discussed with the importance of healthy hair forever!! I was literally shocked that I'm still learning new things (maybe not new to you) to help me with my hair growth goals and continue with my healthy hair journey. So here I am taking lots of notes on pH balance and using my test strips to see if all my hair products are pH balanced.

One product I'm actually excited to try is the Kimmaytube pH-Balanced Leave-In Conditioner Recipe (Kim.LI)!

So You Have Too Many Products? Do A Product Swap!

Image Credit: Hairscapades


#Scenario – You are supposed to go grocery shopping, but find yourself checking out and spending your grocery money on hair products you don’t need. We love to check out what’s new, try new products, and give product reviews for others. So yes, I will surely admit that I tend to overspend on products I don’t even need and I’m not at all disciplined about using up products I already have before purchasing new one.


Now, some stores (like Target) will take your products back that you have no use for. While other stores, will not take the product back unless it is in the original packaging. All this buying and hoarding will lead to a closet/bin/dresser full of unnecessary products taking up space.


The worst thing to do will be to throw your products in the garbage and waste money. So instead of worrying about what to do with products that you will never use...

Confessing My Own Thoughts | Houdini Magic: Shrinkage Blows My Mind




I absolutely love seeing this verse of the natural hair anthem - gently stretching a coil to show the strands true length. Seeing naturalistas do this blows my mind!

So You Want To Be A Product Junkie? – This Is What You Need To Know

Image Credit: Kiwi The Beauty


You would think that being a product junkie is a mental disorder or something that needs a cure. Let me tell you that there is nothing wrong with being a product junkie! Yes, a product junkie may have certain flaws that we tend to write off as “wasteful with money” but if you want to purchase products and try them out do not let the blogs stop you.


So what, you love to purchase product after product before having any empties. Okay, so your closet and bins resemble a local hair care store. Guess what? At least you will have a product review on each product to advise others and products to swap/sell. I say that is surely a double win for the product junkie.


However, even though a product junkie has a plethora of products under her belt, there are a couple of things you need to know many of which surround the expiration date

Thank You For Stopping By!
