Curly Girl Review: Rapunzel “The Future of Hair”

 

IMG_7926

Hey curl friends, who wants to know what hair products I used to achieve these awesome results?! I had the pleasure of trying out some great products from Rapunzel. The end results left me with soft and shiny curls.

I used the following products from the Rapunzel line:IMG_7935

Rapunzel’s Hair Silk: made to smooth ends, condition, and when used daily aids in minimizing breakage and damage caused by chemicals and heated styling.

I loved that this product helps to protect your hair from chemical damage, since I dye my hair often. This oil also gave my curls some amazing shine! You can clearly see the difference in the photo above. In the “before” photo my hair looks dry and dull versus the “after” photo where my curls look shiny, moisturized, and even glisten in the light.

Rapunzel’s Hair Lotion: A deep moisturizing cream made with Shea Butter and other natural oils that promote healthy hair growth while protecting the hair from damage.

I was amazed how soft this cream left my hair…and when I say soft I mean SUPER-DUPER soft! (yes, I said super-duper I had to emphasize on how soft my tresses were! lol)  My comb and fingers literally glided through my hair, melting away any signs of knots that were ever there. It also did a great job at adding moisture to my hair and making it more manageable.

Rapunzel’s Hair Therapy: Hair multivitamins that help prevent hair loss and breakage from occurring.

I have been taking these vitamins consistently for a few days now and I believe I will see results. These vitamins contain a perfect dose of iron, which is an important ingredient when trying to promote hair growth because it carries oxygen to your roots.

Here are some more “after” photos…just because who can resist taking selfies when your new hair products are giving your hair LIFE!…haha.

What do you guys think of my results? I loved the outcome, whats not to love about healthy, silky, and shiny looking curls! If you’re interested in seeing a step by step on how I applied the product press play in the video below:

Curly Girl Review: Madonna & Co Miracle Hair Gel

miracle gel

A curly girl can never have too many hair styling products! Today, I’m sharing my results after using Madonna & Co’s new Miracle Hair Gel. For those of you who are not familiar with Madonna & Co, it’s a boutique and beauty bar. It’s a place that brings together beauty and fashion all under one roof. Although their beauty bar deals with all hair types and textures, they do specialize in curly hair. With that being said, they have created a new miracle gel formula to target frizz.

I was lucky enough to try their new product. I received a small sample size bottle of the Miracle Hair Gel. Because I wanted to see it’s true affect on my hair, and knew the small bottle would not be enough to distribute evenly all through out my hair, I decided to test it out on a smaller section of my hair. I made sure to apply the product in my hair while it was still very wet after washing, I then let it air dry. After it was a hundred percent dried I was able to compare and see the results. The gel had given me nice “S” shaped curls (or ringlets, which ever phrase you prefer). I had VERY nice curl definition with minimum frizz, which I loved! The gel had a light hold and didn’t weigh my hair down at all, nor did it leave my hair stiff but rather soft.

Take a look at how I used the Miracle Hair Gel and the final results:

1. I parted a small section of my hair and washed that section, getting it all ready for the product.

2. I applied the gel on my hair and then combed it through with a wide tooth comb to help distribute the product throughout my hair.

3. I then scrunched my hair upwards towards the roots. (Because I apply the product on my hair while it’s still very wet, it is normal to see the product all in between your fingers). I continue to scrunch and hold a few more times.

4. I used a cotton t-shirt to squeeze out any excess water.

5. Then I just waited around until my hair dried…meanwhile take a look at what my curls looked like right after applying the gel:

Dare to Bare

Still don’t know what to wear on your hot date for Valentine’s Day? Well here’s some inspiration! I found three shoulder baring tops that add the perfect touch of sexy. Tops that show of your shoulders can be fun and flirty, which is why these tops are an ideal fit for Valentine’s Day!

Top #1: American Apparel “Choker Top 

Top #2: Missguided “Long Sleeve Jersey Top

Top #3: Fashion Nova “Mackenzie Top

These tops are perfect for date night. Wear them with jeans and heels for a more casual look. Or dress them up with a sleek pair of trousers, a midi or leather skirt, along with a killer pair of heels and a red hot lip to make things more interesting! (In the photos I paired each top with the bottoms from my “Oh So Tight Set” by Naked Wardrobe and I’m wearing Mac Cosmetics “Ruby Woo” lipstick).

Hope everyone enjoys their Valentine’s Day! xo

Fevrie Dress Review

We all love a good LBD, but let’s face it sometimes it can get a little boring. A girl needs to switch it up sometimes! I’m always on the hunt for a good dress, that way, I’m ready for any occasion whether it be a Holiday party, hot date, or a night out with the gals. I am obsessed with midi dresses at the moment. So when I seen this little hot number on fevrie.com, I knew it would be a perfect addition to my dress collection!

Dress: c/0 Fevrie (here) // Shoes: Unlisted by Kenneth Cole //Necklace: Forever21

This dress was just perfect! The cut out on the sides and the deep v-neck gives the dress a sexy touch, while the length still keeps it classy. It doesn’t end there! Even the back of the dress kept things interesting, as it gives the illusion that you’re wearing a two piece. I even like the visible dark trimmed zipper down the back. I thought that small detail gave the dress a little bit of an edge. Since the dress itself is such a statement piece on it’s own, I chose to keep everything else simple. I paired the dress with nude pumps that matched my neutral toned makeup and added a small silver necklace that was perfect for the neck line. This dress is ideal for a night out and with New Years right around the corner you’ll have the perfect excuse to rock this dress and turn some heads!

Heels and Camo Combo

Camouflage always seems to find its way back into our closets. I personally love the whole camo vibe, from the army prints to the hunter greens. When you think camouflage “tomboy or “casual” might come to mind, but with all the fun styles that incorporate the camo print, you can easily take that look from day to night!

I bought a pair of army printed joggers not too long ago and the first time I wore them I kept it more on the casual side. However, last Thursday I was going out for a ladies night and was trying to decide on what to wear. I didn’t want to get all dressed up, but didn’t want to be too casual…I needed something in between. So with the whole sweatpants and heels trend going on, I was inspired to pull a look together with my camo joggers for my Thursday night out. Keep scrolling to see how I styled my army joggers!

Body Shirt: (old staple piece in my closet) // Jogger Pants: Love Culture // Shoes: Target // Necklace: Mad Rag

I decided to keep it a bit simple, so I paired the army joggers with a basic black t-shirt. To keep the outfit from looking too casual and give it a flirty touch, I chose to wear my black caged heels. I accessorized with a chunky gold necklace and kept it on the dark side with my lipstick choice and went for big hair to finish off my look.

Holy Chic

“Holy Chic”…how awesome is that phrase?! There’s only one thing that can make it better, having it printed on a cozy sweater! A black sweater is always an essential for the cold weather, and I thought having a cute phrase on it would make an outfit a little more fun and interesting. I scored this cute sweater at Forever21, they always have the cutest things!

IMG_2901IMG_2912 IMG_2928

Sweater: Forever21 // Pants: Love Culture // Boots: H&M

I decided to pair the sweater with my burgundy waxed pants, instead of going with black or regular jeans to make the outfit stand out more. My black booties worked perfectly to pull the whole look together, as it helped make the black sweater pop more against the burgundy pants. To dress up my outfit just a tad bit, I went ahead and threw on my black and gold chunky necklace. For the final touches, I opted for a dark burgundy lip to compliment my pants and went with a chic braided updo.

Here’s a closer look at my hair:

Little Black Dress

lil blk dress4“The little black dress” every girl knows it’s a necessity! It’s the dress that serves a thousand purposes, when in doubt always go for your LBD! It’s a classic so you never have to worry about not being fashionable, along with always having the option of keeping it simple or pushing the limits. It’s the dress that keeps you feeling confident, so even if you’re someone who swears off dieting and indulges in your guilty pleasures every now and then, have no fear the LBD is here to save the day! With the abundance of black dresses out there, you are bound to find the perfect LBD that flatters you. (I promise!)

So with Valentine’s Day sneaking up on us, I thought this was perfect timing for this post. I know what you’re probably thinking “isn’t red or pink more suitable for the occasion?” One might think so, but thats not necessarily the case for everyone. This is for my ladies who prefer the “all black everything” look and are not fans of bold colors like red or the femininity of pink. And that’s just fine! Like I mentioned earlier the LBD works for any occasion. Take a look at my LBD option for the day of love (aka Valentine’s Day):

Dress: American Apparel (here) // Belt: Love Culture (similar and here) // Shoes: Target // Lipstick: Ruby Woo by MAC

I wanted to go for a “va va voom” kind of look. After all, it is for Valentine’s Day so why not throw our significant other a bone and give them a little eye candy (wink). I thought this American Apparel dress was the perfect dose of sexy with its deep v-neck cut, while the length kept it looking classy! I added my gold chain front belt to accentuate my waist a little more, and opted for my black caged heels. I decided to throw in a little bit of color, so I went for a red lip (Ruby Woo red to be exact, it’s definitely one of my go to lip colors…you should check it out at your nearest MAC store.) If you’re someone who’s afraid of color this is a perfect way to experiment, go ahead and incorporate some color to your outfit by playing around with some lipstick…baby steps! Who knows, you might actually love it and start working that color into your wardrobe!

Thanks for stopping by loves! xo.
