How I Straightened My 4C Natural Hair

Hey everyone! Last week, I straightened my hair for the first time in many, many years. The original point was to do a trim, but my ends were not as bad off as I originally thought. I did however do a slight dusting. Check out the video below to see how I achieved this look.

Yes, I need a trim 😔

Bigger Bun on Natural Hair

Hello everyone! I'm back with another bun look. I've done this bun before but it's been awhile. I think it's bigger than it's ever been.

If you'd like a tutorial on how I did this particular bun, please request it in the comments below!

Updated Blow Out Routine ft. Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer & Styler + Review!

Check out my video demo and review below!










I purchased this dryer from my local Kroger but as you see below, it can be purchased from many other retailers, some in store as well as online. I have type 4c natural hair and this dryer works very well with my hair type. It's shaped as an oversized paddle brush which is really gentle on my strands. I used the tension method to blow dry, then went back through with the brush for a smoother finish. This is the best of both worlds and gone are the days of holding both the blow dryer and the paddle brush to achieve a blow out. Not mention, this combination allows for a much quicker result. It took me only about 45 minutes to complete, and that is in between filming as well. With using the blow dryer and brush separately, it's more like an hour and 15 minutes to complete the process. I am completely satisfied with this product, I feel it is well worth the money, I would recommend to friends, and I would buy another if anything ever happened to this one.

Live Clean Coconut Milk Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner Review

Hello everyone! I'm really excited to share with you all two products I was able to try from Live Clean.



I received both of these in my Daisy Voxbox for testing and review. If you are interested in joining Influenster, please click here.

Both products come in a 12 oz sized bottle and smell delicious!

The shampoo was great for my type 4 natural hair! It forms into a rich lather to really cleanse the scalp but not strip the hair. It left my hair feeling clean and soft. It works just as well as some of the other natural products on the market I've tried (Giovanni's Deeper Moisture Shampoo, Aubrey's Organics Honeysuckle Rose Shampoo to name a couple).


The conditioner has a nice and thick consistency that provides a generous amount of slip. Good enough to eat (well maybe not eat but you get my point. It was the perfect product for restoring and maintaining the moisture in my natural hair. It certainly exceeded my expectations as I was also able to use this as a deep conditioner! It left my hair very soft and moisturized.

Both products are quite cost affective as well. A 12 oz bottle runs for less than $8 so you are getting a quality shampoo & conditioner without the hefty price tag.

I would absolutely purchase these products and recommend them to anyone who's looking for a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner.
