Hot Heads!

 

Hot Head microwavable deep conditioning heat caps are a great way to give your hair a hot oil treatment.  A hot oil treatment can not only give you hair the much needed moisture it needs, but it is also a great way to help cut down on breakage when you are trying to de-tangle and or wash your hair.

When I used my hot head, I could tell right away how much softer and more manageable my hair was. "Hot Head is handmade locally by our team of skilled seamstresses! Hot Head is the original flax filled, microwavable, deep conditioning heat cap. It is allowing people all over the world the freedom to achieve the results of a salon quality deep conditioning treatment at home with ease." - About Hot Head


I also recommend the Hot Head Spritzer's that come in different scents. My favorite scent is the Dark Coconut. You add a spray of the scent you like, to you cap before using it on your hair, and it is very soothing.

Outtasight 3-in-1 Scalp Serum

I am so happy that I have found Outtasight Hair 3-in-1 Scalp Serum.   I have had so many problems with hair breakage when I wash my hair.  I would lose gobs and gobs of hair to the point that I was worried about hair loss.

I used this serum after my last hair wash, and I had minimal hair loss.  My scalp felt refreshed and my hair look healthier after being styled.  I have found a forever product and will be using this on my hair after every single wash.


"Get Ready to AAHH! Our multi-tasking hair serum for dry scalp eases scalp tension, itchiness, and irritation while providing the optimal environment to maximize hair growth. Now, you can trust that your natural hair and scalp will flourish! The perfect maintenance for all of your style changes. For natural and/or color-treated hair. Perfect to use with sew-ins, braids and wigs."

I would also like to thank Outtasight for giving me a shout out on their website.

Looking for a trendy new hairstyle? Then this is the place to be! We have found 25 of the most stunning passion twists hairstyles for you to see.

1. Short Passion Twists

First up, we have this beautiful half-up, half-down hairstyle. The twists have been parted on the side and about half of the hair has been styled up. This is a gorgeous hair idea that can be dressed up or down to suit any occasion. We love the length of the twists too, as it is a stylish look for the spring and summer.

3. Beautiful Burgundy Passion Twists

If you are looking to completely transform your hair, then think about using a stylish color. One color you should consider is burgundy. Burgundy is a rich and beautiful shade that never goes out of style. It will suit everyone and allows you to try a new color without being too bold. You can try burgundy on long twists like these or on shorter ones.

4. Twists into a High Bun

Our next idea is cute and easy to wear! Here we have a passion twist high bun. The twists have been styled high on the head to create a chic bun. Also, the ends of some of the twists have been left down to create the appearance of bangs. This is a gorgeous hair idea that would look amazing for the summer or just when you want your hair up but looking stylish.

Next, we have mid length twists. The twists have been parted on the side and the ends sit around the shoulder. This is a beautiful and versatile style. With hair like this you get the best of both worlds. It is short enough for the ladies who want fuss free hair, but long enough where you can style it into a bun and other styles. Hair like this will look stunning on everyone.

Gorgeous Elegant Loc Up


This is a photo that I found years ago... that is just timeless.  Her loc's are beautiful.

CBD Living - A great way to releive pain

I just recently started to become aware of the benefits of using CBD oil for pain relief. I have suffered from lower and upper back pain for about 2 years and have always relied on over the counter pills to help. But with CBD oil, it is a good alternative because it is a natural solution.  And no worries, it will not get you high.

I tried two great products from CBD Living that have helped a lot.  The CBD daily lotion is great for relieving muscle pain.  Once you rub it into your skin, it starts to work right away.  The CBD living soap is has a great relaxing smell and lives you feeling refreshed.


CBD Living Lotion Eucalyptus 250mg
What is CBD lotion? CBD Living Lotion is a rich, luxurious lotion perfect for treating dry skin while getting your daily CBD dose. It is made from the finest natural ingredients and is infused with nano-CBD for maximum absorption. CBD Lotion is absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream, providing your daily dose of CBD. It is great for relaxing after a long day or invigorating the senses and treating dry skin.  CBD Lotion does not contain THC and will not leave you feeling “high.”

CBD Coconut Lime Bath Soap
The coconut lime scent will make you feel like you are on a tropical vacation, in the comfort of your own shower! CBD Lavender Soap is 100% vegan-friendly and will refresh and rejuvenate your senses. It is 100% hypoallergenic and can be used on any skin type.

Aspiring Model - Asha

 

I am so proud of my daughter, Asha. She is an amazing and talented young lady. She is always first to try to help someone in need. Has a very kind heart and remains humble, despite her beauty and academic accomplishments in life. As a young girl she donated hair to Locks of Love, and often look for opportunities to volunteer and do things to better her community.  Asha also has expressed an interest in modeling and I am happy to support her.

"I am Asha. I have a passion for modeling but have yet to pursue it. To date I worked with Jameel Pugh, a wedding photographer. I did a portrait shoot. I am available for shoots anywhere in the East Bay Area. I am tall (5'10") with long curly hair. For more information contact me at naturalgirlsunited@gmail.com".
