The products I received were new to me, except the Jane Carter Curl Defining Cream, I purchased a 16oz jar a while back. I used the JC for my twist and for my daughters twist, the cream really helped combat frizz, and helped define my twist out. My daughters twist was not weighed down or greasy. I like the Jane Carter Curl Defining Cream and would re-purchase.

I used the SDot Beauty Softly & Tenderly Deep Conditioner! 

Scent: Fruity (Starburst Fruit Punch), but not at all overwhelming and did not linger for long.

Consistency: rich & creamy like rice pudding

The conditioner went on my hair smoothly, and my hair absorbed the conditioner pretty fast. I was impressed with the results and would definitely love to use it again. 

This Hair subscription box is a nice box for naturals new & old, the variety of products and support of small and large businesses is wonderful. I'd recommend this box to a curl friend.

Checking your Hair tools! Have You?

Checking your hair tools is very important during your healthy hair journey; whether relaxed or natural. Using any tools including your fingers can cause damage if you aren't paying close attention! Why? Your finger nails...hang nails, chipped nails, or anything that your hair can hook onto on your fingers can cause unnecessary breakage, which results in poor length retention and unhealthy hair.

    Using wide tooth combs can cause unnecessary hair breakage and damage because of all the stress being put onto the hair strand, therefore we already have 1 strike against us...But using tools with a seam can cause more damage.

Checking to make sure the tool YOU are using does not have any areas to snag onto your hair is very important. I was checking my good ole wide tooth comb I love so much and noticed where the pretty painted teeth were, the paint had begun chipping away, leaving small areas with potential to snag onto my kinky coily tresses. I tossed it!

Then, I checked my knock off Denman (conair brush) and noticed the red rubber was begin to get too flexible and cracking...Needless to say "Tossed it." 

I went and checked all my tools and noticed most of them needed to go! I had received a curl mart wide tooth comb and immediately after 4-6 uses noticed the teeth paint was chipping away. Gone!

These are a few of the NEW tools I have purchased to detangle and style my hair:

Using tools in my Healthy Natural Hair Journey is a choice I am pleased with and will continue to use.

                                              Thanks for stopping by!

~Cocoa-Coffe Rhassoul Hair Mask~ BlueRozeBeauty


These three words are an understatement of how extravagant this product truly is, I had the awesome opportunity of trying this product. I WON this product in a giveaway from the owner of Blue Roze Beauty. I received an 8 ounce jar of yummy-ness. 
First off the product looks like a dessert, smells like a scrumptious dessert, and made my hair feel uber soft! 
Before using this Rhassoul hair mask, I had not used any. So, I didn't have any expectations, but I did have some assumptions of hair masks. 
I thought a hair mask would strip my hair of oils, impurities, and the goodness in which I moisturize and seal my hair, BUT it didn't do that. The Hair mask actually went on my hair really smoothly and was a nice creamy consistency. 
While, I worked the product into my hair it just felt really good, made hair did NOT feel stiff or dry, it felt really slippery and soft. 
I left the mask on overnight with a plastic cap and hair bonnet. 
And after rinsing the Cocoa-Coffee Rhassoul Hair mask out, my hair felt like butter. Soft, manageable, and moisturized.
