Pantene Relaxed and Natural Review**

Hey Ladies,


I am writing to you to inform you of a new secret well its not new but I just discovered it. So yesterday I colored my hair and along with the color kit came a tube of Pantene Pro V Relaxed and Natural conditioner. I was a little skeptical but I tried it and I must say this conditioner worked better than those I had stored in my beauty closet.

Results: My hair was easy to untangle and it was very soft and this was while the product was on my hair and even after I rinsed the product out I had soft and manageable hair.

My thoughts: I was unsure because it wasn't all natural but on this natural journey I am learning not all products that contain man made products or extra additives are bad. Alot of  products I used when my hair was relaxed helps to tame and control my natural curls and coils.

 Final thought: I most definitely will be using this product again because it works for me and it blended very well with my other products and allowed me to achieve a beautiful wash n go.

As one Naturalista once stated sometimes its simply what works for you!! Different Strokes for Different Folks but it has my go ahead I recommend it and the price is way easier on the pockets its now in stores for a small fee of $3.74 not bad huh?


Achieved Results:
1. Co-wash with this conditioner
2. lightly damped with the water mix i use which is simply (extra virgin olive oil, vegetable glycerin, lavender oil, rosemary oil and bottled water)
3. Add Giovanni direct leave in with a my hair
 4. Section hair off into big parts and add Eco-Gel
5. Add a little Kera Care silk n Seal mist to reduce frizz and fight humidity
6.  lightly pull and twist of my fingers on my hair achieve this look below




Well ladies until next time Be Bold!!! Be Beautiful!!! and Be Uniquely You!!

Yours Naturally

Utilize the Benefits of your Hair!!!!

Hey Ladies,

As you know it has began to heat up outside and many are prepping for the summer heat. I am writing to encourage you to utilize the benefit of your natural hair and the wash and go technique to truly burn and gain.

In the last few weeks I have been working out as much as possible I have come to enjoy the freedom of burning the extra calories and working up a nice hot and steamy sweat. Back in my relaxed days I would be in a panic if my hair were to sweat. This would cause my new growth to go bananas.


I urge you to go ahead get healthy make it a point to get your daily workout on and now you have the freedom of doing so because when you hop in that shower you can simply treat yourself to a wash n go.

Again being natural has its benefits its liberating and freeing and in my case it has began to cause me to take on a better lifestyle!!!

Remember**** To Embrace all of you and that is in Mind, Body and Spirit**** As we are inspired and aspired to grow our natural tresses let us also shape and reshape our whole selves!!

Its been 8 months since I big chopped and I have to tell you it has been quite and experience. In these past 8 months I have discovered a new found confidence and respect for my hair.


 I believe I have found a new love for my hair and appearance. In going natural one must embrace the beauty God gave to each of us individually as


 Chrisette Michelle states:
What Chrisette Michelle says about going natural :Do what’s best for you. What is your heart saying? Follow it. We are incredibly beautiful, us curly girls. Let’s be proud and supportive of each other. To be quite honest I’d have to say...are you ready for what I’m about to say? Ok... Don’t be one of those girls out there who have our beautiful curls but wear no smile, head is down, ain’t got no ...presence! Give it! Cat walk down the street! Rock that hair with the fiercest of outfits. This is not just a spiritual journey, it’s an incredible fashion statement that not everyone can wear! Treat it like a manicure or a new Prada bag and be the most amazing diva on your block. This beauty is fierce and it’s ours naturally! Let’s make each other proud! Amen?!
 
Current Product use:
 I still co wash every other day or as needed with my Giovanni Deeper Moisture conditioner /Giovanni leave In conditioner
 
I use my water mix: Bottle water/Extra Virgin Olive Oil/lavender oil/Rosemary oil/glycerin
 
I also use Kera Cara silk n seal spray to fight frizz
 
Eco styler gel is a must if I am going for a more tame look.
 
 
Heres a look at my hair now!!!!
 
 


 
Happy 8 Months and counting!!!!
