Shea Moisture: Manuka Honey & Yogurt Line

Hey Y’all,

My goal aside from healthy hair is to also curate the perfect regimen for my thick and curly mane. One that adds to and maintains the moisture balance in my otherwise dry hair, while also promoting hair growth and length retention. Everything so far is so good! I have managed to fall even more in love with my natural curl pattern, more than I ever thought I would and these products are part of the reason why!

Y’all it’s FALL! Sorry I’ve been away for so long, school started back in August and I’ve been workin’ and doing my thang, so I’ve finally settled into to some sentiment of a routine to be able to write this review up for you lovelies.

A (way) while back my fav, @jessiejamesdecker posted to her Instagram a photo of some makeup goodies recommended to her, and since I am hypnotized by makeup, reviews, and Youtube, I just had to search it out. My initial recon brought on a mild sense of shock as I saw the prices of said beauty products; it wasn’t too discouraging, the prices, but from a brand I had never heard of, let alone a solely online company where I can’t personally swatch and feel the color palettes and textures of the products, I wasn’t willing to risk it. To be honest, I am a college student on a budget and I, like many, work very hard for my money, so I like to be wise and look for solid, not always sure, but solid investments.

I was going back and forth with whether or not to try something of @Beautycounter, with its promise of safer beauty and of being paraben and preservative free their mission aligned closely with my values and beauty needs.  This lead to a tug-of-war between my financial values and my health values… but as luck would have it Target  (lineup photo below) came through in the clutch and delivered an amazing brand and opportunity at my doorstep. As soon payday hit, I ran to Target (two in total) to buy what would be the last balm on the shelf.

PR: Aussie 3-min Miracle Moist

Ideal for dried out locks but great for all hair types.

• Deep Condition
• Shine
• Moisturize

 I must confess that I was skeptical about this at first, even after all of the rave reviews on Instagram and throughout the WebSphere. I bought this product at Kroger’s one dayScreen Shot 2016-07-03 at 1.36.24 AM on a whim and have not been disappointed with my hair results since. This product is worth ALL of the hype; it’s inexpensive and amazing quality. Aussie is really worth a try; I would highly recommend spending the $3 to pamper your precious locks.

I had tried too many expensive treatments and conditioners with no results for my curly hair. Even brushing my hair could be torturous, but this amazing little bottle has made my great difference in the way my hair feels since the first use. I was losing too large an amount of hair on wash days as it was very difficult to detangle, and keep it detangled, but now,my hair feels so smooth, silky , healthy and shiny. I have very thick, very dry/brittle hair (naturally), so it needs daily added moisture. I’m talking vitamin E oil, castor oil, hair and hair milks. My scalp drinks everything up usually, but here lately I’ve noticed a difference in its moisture retention level. After using Aussie, my hair days later still feels soft and completely hydrated; I’m finding that less and less oil is needed daily to prevent breakage and to stay hydrated. The product comes out as a sweet-smelling heavy cream; while, in my head it leaves my tresses silky smooth and soft, all while giving my hair its much-needed slip. One thing I do need to mention, which surprised when I got ready to use this, it’s not resealable. There is an open spot on the base where the product pours out when squeezing the sides. I thought it quite odd at first, but now I think it’s kind of quirky and fine. Regardless, of the outward design, this product should have a home on every countertop in America!

TXoxo,
