Ear Candy --Water Bed Hev

Please review the following article that is a tribute to Heavy D......

I see your true colors…..

I decided to color my hair at home. I’ve always had some type of coloring in my hair. As a relaxed woman my hair was always a sandy brown color and I hated that I could never get it to shine. So, I turned to color. Well, when I chopped my hair in April 2011 it turned a dark brown almost black!?!? I was/am very confused where this color came from. So, last Friday night I made a date with myself and my hair to add some color. I used Hi-Rez  Brazen Bronze color by Soft Sheen Carson. Well I must say that the color is not as brazen as I would like it to be so I am quite certain that I will get some boosting done to lighten and darken to bring about some more contrast. So, for now enjoy the pics below.

What I'm Wearing............

As I was stepping out to church I chose to wear this outfit.

I have on a tweed-like skirt purchased from JCPenney on sale for approximately $15.00, a turtleneck (price unknown), a lightweight jacket from Target for $10.00. None of this went together but after thinking about what to wear this is what I came up with. How did I do???

Miss Jessie Twist Out Results……….

Miss Jessie's

Gwen's Blends

I really like the results!! It seems to give me the same results as the Gwen’s Blends I purchased at the World Natural Hair Show. One thing I forgot to mention was after using the Curly Pudding my hands felt weird. Almost as though I had a plastic coating on them….did not feel good!! I know that Miss Jessie’s has some “bad” stuff in it for natural hair but I wanted to try them out. I did like the Super Sweetback Treament and would love to try that again in my hair for the recommended allotted time.

Can you tell a difference between the two pics???

Trying New Things

So, my cousin went to the For Sisters Only in ATL a while back and she got free samples of Miss Jessie’s and gave them to me!!! I washed my hair last night and I used the Super Sweetback Treatment that is meant for deep conditioning. OMG!!! It smelled sooo good, like good enough to eat. This treatment retails for $48.00 for a 16 oz. jar.

Then I used the Curly Pudding (which also smelled great) to twist my hair with. I shall see the end result when I take my twists out. I will be certain to make a post with the picture when I take the twists out. This styler retails for $38.00 for a 16 oz. jar.

Be Royal!!

Into the Night……

As I left to go into the night to hear the melodic sounds of Ledisi I put on my lovely new shoes. These shoes are by Carlos Santana called Mustique. They are quite comfortable and gave me no problems walking distances.

My outfit was all black with a feathered black and silver belt (Dots), black slacks and a butterfly sleeved black top.

The concert was AHHHHMAZING!!!! Ledisi really put on a show. I was surprised by how much she danced! It was very exciting to see her excited and hear her testimony about her life and music. Truly a WONDERFUL night!
