September 30, 2016 by Seymone Brutus

I wouldn't call myself a beauty junkie. I'm pretty loyal to the brands I love and often try products based off recommendations from family and friends. 

Today I found these free samples, I said hey, why not! Anybody else in  ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿพ

1. SheaMoisture 

There are many samples available according to your solution. I selected Natural Hair and was linked to...


"SheaMoisture’s Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen, Grow & Restore Shampoo is a sulfate free, clarifying cleanser which nourishes and protects damaged, processed hair to make your curls and coils healthier, softer and shinier than before!

This gentle hair care treatment from SheaMoisture is infused with Jamaican Black Castor Oil rich in reparative omegas. Damaged hair, prone to breakage and shedding need nourishing reparative omegas to rebuild strength and volume. Certified organic Shea Butter blended into this unique formulation provides hydrating nourishment to unmanageable, brittle hair and makes your curls look and feel softer, smoother and healthier! Natural ingredients like Peppermint and Apple Cider Vinegar invigorate hair scalp to promote hair growth which adds definition and volume to dull, lifeless curls and coils.

Her Edges -- Perfect. Mines -- Not So Much. Edge Control: Which One Doesn't Appear Greasy?

September 17, 2016 by Seymone Brutus

I rarely wear my hair without hair extensions. (I've been growing my hair from a previous shortcut hairstyle) Currently I'm wearing my hair in a style that does not match the texture of my own hair. Because of this, I use edge control on the edges of my hair so my hair will blend with my extensions

Frankly, I can't wait to switch my hairstyle back to curly so I can have a seamless look and enjoy my natural hair blending with my curly extensions. Shout out to this beautiful mama who has the right idea, "free the edges"

3 Steps For Great Hair

September 6, 2016 by Seymone Brutus

If I only had 10 minutes to talk with you, here's the advice I would pass on. 

A lot of women misconstrue great hair as an ideal style, color or texture. However, there isn't a single description or image of what great hair should look like. A lot of the time we get caught up in the limelight of each hair trend or hairstyle debut. We must remember that what really happens is that we have fell in love with the person, their platform and it illuminates their style. Now if we see ourselves in those same eyes, we'll see that no matter how we wear our hair -- it is great hair! Here's the main things to remember.

Step 1: Define You

This may be easier said than done. If we don't pay close attention, like really close, we may be reflecting our self image from someone else. We look around and see the women we adore and covet their lifestyle, possessions or hair alone and neglect to see our self. We have to set ourselves apart from the world and truly define what makes us happy and what ignites our passion. What has you skipping out on sleep and fueled on joy and excitement? This is you. This defines who you are.

Step 2: Decide what makes you comfortable

I love when women make a statement with their hair. Sometimes our choice of style represents a transition we're going through, a new beginning or simply a way of expressing our current state of mind. For example, choosing to cut your hair into a shortstyle or pixie cut is often associated with exhilaration -- the notion of cutting yourself from the attachment of your hair, symbolic with your present life. The thing is, you must be careful and with fair reason that whatever style you chose, you are comfortable and confident in every aspect. You don't want your hair to give you a reason to shy away and not be you.

Step 3: Know what your hair necessities are

How many of us know exactly what type of hair we have? Do you know the category of your hair's texture, its current condition and how it should be treated? The more you know about your hair, the better decisions you make in your choice of hair products, styling tools and accessories like hair pins and hair ties. The more you know about your hair, you'll discover the styles and treatments that are best for you. Healthy hair permits ease of maintenance and ultimately effortless style!


Apply these 3 steps and I assure you great hair will greet you daily each morning. You'll never question if your hair looks good because you know you, you are in your comfort zone and even better -- know what works for your hair. Talk about confidence all around!

Cheers to great hair!
