Product Review: Best Find of 2010

Shea Moisture Products

Product Junkie is a label that a lot of us have embraced or have tried most of our natural hair journey to avoid! If you were anything like me, you vowed not to let the hype of every new product get the best of you. I did good for a while, but before I knew it I had a little of this, and a little of that, hair products began to quickly take over my bathroom cabinets!  I soon decided after much trial and error to settle on a popular all natural product line that is very good, and inexpensive.

 I'd heard a lot about the Shea Moisture line, but was trying my best to resist the urge to get on another product band wagon. At $9.99 The price tag along was enough to peek my interest, and to know that I could also purchase this product locally was very appealing to me. I got tired of ordering all of my products on line, and as if it the products alone weren't expensive enough,  the shipping charges alone is enough to make you think long and hard about it!    But with the Shea Moisture Line you don't have to break the bank to use all natural products, and it actually exceeds expectations. I love the Curl Enhancing Smoothie!  It leaves my hair soft and shiny!  

Used as a wash n Go product

The Curl Enhancing Smoothie has a very thick consistency and is perfect if you have Medium to thick or coarse hair. My hair is soft for days without me having to  reapply.  Now that it is amazing!   You don't have to use much, and my hair seem to just hold on to the moisture.


The CES is very versatile it can be used as a soft hold wash n go styling aid or, for twists and twist outs. Also I spritz my hair daily with Shea Moisture's  Hold and Shine Hibiscus Mist and it really adds to the shine.  This is by far my favorite line right now for collective reasons.   These products are 100% all natural and there are no hidden artificial ingredients, the price is unbelievable, and it does what it says it will!

I also have used the Cconditioning Curl and  Style milk. It is just the right consistency not too heavy and not too thin. I use it to re moisturize my twist outs, it's perfect! 

I have yet to use the Deep Treatment mask on my own hair but my clients love it!  Stay tuned, because on this year I plan to try their Shampoo and other conditioners. I've really made a Healthy Hair Connection with the Shea Moisture Line, ladies it's worth a second and a third look!

Rebuilding Your Foundation

It's a brand new year, and it's time to take advantage of this clean slate! 2010 had some interesting highs and lows but God delivered us through them All!  I don't know about you, but for me it's time to rebuild and push forward!    Like me, I'm sure some of you set goals for yourself naturally and spiritually, and at the top of my list is to strengthen my relationship with God. This is key, because without this foundation we lack the direction and approval of the Lord, everything that we set out to accomplish, or actually accomplish will be in vain. This same principle holds true when it comes to our hair care

What goals have you set for your hair in 2011? If you haven't added to build stronger  hair strands to your list,  everything else you set out to accomplish will be in vain.  Strong hair is resilient and is resistent to breakage, hair fall, and shedding.   

 When we become proactive in strengthening our hair the results are longer, fuller, healthier hair!.
On this year, lets commit to building stronger healthier hair and everything else will follow!!

 Here are a few do's and don'ts to reference while rebuilding the strength of your precious strands in 2011..


  • Deep condition hair 1 to 2 times a week
  • Incorporate Cassia, Amla, or Henna treatments to your regimen
  • Eat more nutrient rich foods(i.e. Leafy greens and nuts)
