Surprise and Delight | SheaBassador Launch Box 2019

Hello Passionista-

I am excited to share with you my review of my very first SheaBassador box. It’s been a few weeks since I received this box, I wanted to take my time to really use each product in my daily routine with washing and styleing my hair. I wish I was able to capture footage of my actully washing my hair with the products, but I recap the expiences in my review of each product below. Out of the 5 products in the Launch box I have purchased and used 3 of them before ( Coconut & Hibiscus, Coconut Oil Conditioner, and Jamician Castor Oil Shampoo). My favorite product in the box is the Miracle Styler Leave-in Conditioner. I have just about used this entire bottle up.

After washing my hair using the Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Shampoo w/ Shea Butter, Peppermint & Apple Cider Vinegar and 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Conditioner, I decided to try this quick knot twist style. The twist out style lasted about 4 days before I had to re-do the style for a fresh appearance.

Manuka Honey & Yogurt Hydrate + Repair Shampoo w/ Mafura & Baobob Oils

This product is best used on extremely dry and brittle hair. I do not have dry and brittle hair but I still tried it. I received this product in a SheaBassador box.  It smells powdery fresh. The formula is really creamy, milky like so the pop top is the best form of packaging for this shampoo. I have used it for 2 wash days. I have found that it leaves a natural shine to your hair. I feel my curls got really hydrated during the wash process and were easy to comb through. Not much detangling needed.

Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Shampoo w/ Shea Butter, Peppermint & Apple Cider Vinegar

This product is for natural, chemically processed, or heat styled hair. I received this product in a SheaBassador box. Because I have tried this product before I had the conditioner at home. So when I washed my hair using this shampoo I used the conditioner as well. The shampoo contains lots of beneficial ingredients to help strengthen your hair. This is not a product I would use for every wash day. Honestly, I think overuse of this shampoo and conditioner can strip your hair of its natural healthy oils. So I plan to only use this shampoo when I have alot of product built out and need to really cleanse my scalp.

Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Conditioner w/ Silk Protein & Neem Oil

I received this product in a SheaBassador box. This is a product I have used before, I love how the Coconut & Hibiscus line moistures my hair and defines my curls. This conditioner is ideal for a wash n go styles. The formula is thick yet provides a lightweight hold to condition my natural curl pattern. I have never purchased the shampoo and conditioner for this product line before, only the curl enhancer smoothie, but now that I have tried the shampoo I think I will purchase it.

100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Conditioner w/ Coconut Milk & Acacia Senegal

I received this product in a SheaBassador box. I have honestly used almost all of this conditioner in a matter of a month. I’ve used it to condition my hair during the wash process as well as a styling product for my wash n go using the LOC method- using conditioner as the leave in.

Sugarcane Extract & Meadowfoam Seed Silicone Free Miracle Styler Leave – In Treatment w/ Marshmallow Root


I received this product in a SheaBassador box. This product has become my favorite. First off, I appreciate the packaging and spray top. It sprays a bit stringy instead of a wide spread. But I just spray the product in my hand then apply it to my hair and work in into small sections of my hair at a time. The formula is really creamy and not so watery, that allows you to evenly distribute product through the hair.

Stay tuned for more natural hair content and product reviews of products from my SheaBassador boxes.

World Natural Hair Show 2019

Hello Passionista

This past weekend was extremely eventful for me. I was given the opportunity to work with Camilla Rose Naturals as a Rosette brand ambassador during the World Natural Hair Show in Atlanta, GA.

Camille Rose is a natural hair care line of moisture-rich cleanser, conditioners and stylers. All products are uniquely blended with love and offer the tender, love and care you hair needs from a hair care product. I love that the products are naturally made and promotes a healthy lifestyle for hair and beauty. Camille Rose products can be purchased on the brand website and also found in stores like Target, Sally’s Beauty and CVS.

Working with the Camille Rose team and other Rosettes was just rewarding experience. I learned so much about the products and how they are made. I even got the chance to help mix up some deep conditioners with essentials oil made custom for customers as they shopped at the hair show. Some of the other Rosettes are blogger and YouTubers, like myself, so it was fun connecting with them and sharing stories and ideas.

I wish I was able to get more pictures, but I was hard at work mingling and talking to customers about the products and all things natural hair. I was able to share with customers my wash n’ go methods, the products I use and how things work for me. In return I learned a lot about treating and caring for natural hair just by having conversations with people as they shopped around in the booth.

Of course, I had to get some products for myself to try. Don’t worry I will be sharing the products that I picked with full reviews and content on how I use them on my hair within the next few weeks… So, make sure you are subscribed and get notifications for upcoming blogs.

SheaBassador 2019 | 1st Unboxing

Hey Passionista-

Have you heard the GOOD News?

I’m a 2019 #SheaBassadoor !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m so excited and honored for this opportunity. This is my 1st major ambassador partnership with a brand. It’s amazing because Shea Moisture is a brand that I’ve been using for years. I have some Shea Moisture faves and some not so faves. This journey is going to be so amazing to receive products that I can trust, use, review and share with you.

How it Works?

Shea Moisture will send me 8 to 10 product boxes throughout the year. Each box will be filled with products for me to share tutorials, unboxings, display of products, using and sharing the product. So be sure to stick around for all the great new content I will have to share with you.

I love when my readers get involved and send me questions and comments or just share how you like or don’t like the products I review. If you’re not already, follow me on Instagram and Twitter so you can chat with me.

Here’s my first unboxing clip ….. IGTV

Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Shampoo

Manuka Honey & Yogurt Hydrate + Repair Shampoo

Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Conditioner

100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Conditioner

Sugarcane Extract & Meadowfoam Seed Silicone-Free Miracle Styler Leave-In Treatment

Hair Brush


I am impressed with the packaging. I knew the package was being mailed to me but I didn’t know what to expect. I love that the packaging is branded and has lots of pictures and educational content about the ingredients of the products. I am shocked about how many full sized products I received. I was thinking I might receive one or two full size products and some sample sized products. So this package exceeded my expectations.

I’ve purchased the Strengthen & Restore product line and Curl & Shine product line of Shea Mositure several times. In the past I felt like the Strengthen & Restore shampoo and conditioner were stripping my hair of its natural oils and causing my curl pattern to look stringy, but now that I’ve gotten my curl pattern together (NO HEAT for 1 year) I am willing to try this line again to see if it was indeed the formula or just my damaged hair. I use the Curl & Shine leave in conditioner and curl creme often. When I first started using it I thought it left my hair to greasy and heavy without volume. Once I started using the L-O-C method for a wash n’ go style, now the Curl & Shine Curl Creme is a essential need for my hair routine.

My favorite product from this box… so far, has been the Sugarcane Extract & Meadowfoam Seed Silicone-Free Miracle Styler Leave-In Treatment. I’ve never purchased this product or seen it in stores before, but I love a good leave in product that will help refresh my wash n’ go on a day to day basis.

It helps with detangling and soften curls again. It also nourishes and adds shine to my curls for a refreshed look eliminating over night frizz for a fluffy full head of curls.

What’s you favorite Shea Moisture product?

Pamper Routine

Hello Passionista

I love pampering myself. But, honestly its been a while since I’ve had a pamper day. Normally I’d pick a Saturday out of the month to sleep in, make myself a fancy breakfast and give my body the pamper works it needs. 2019 has been a busy year. I’ve been busy planning and connecting with other entrepreneurs that I haven’t had a pamper day all year. Last night I decided to relax and try some new pampering products.

My pamper routine always involves food and a hot bath. Last night I had dinner from Olive Garden (one of my favorite restaurants). My hot bath was accompanied by a Jingle Bell peppermint bath bomb, ULTA Beauty coconut shower whip and Dead Sea Himalayan Salt Scrub and a Bath & Body Work (black tie) candle.


The new additions to my pamper routine are these moisturizing gloves and socks I picked at Big Lots for $1 each. Yes! That’s right Big Lots, I freaking love that store. The mositurizing gloves and socks by Epielle Beauty are meant to relieve and soften dry skin with sunflower seed + avocado oil. They feel absolutely amazing. I put both the gloves and socks on, then just kicked up my feet and relaxed for about an hour. I was super shocked about how soft and hydrated my hands and feet felt afterwards. These are 5 star quality product for only a buck.

As you can imagine, if I haven’t had time to pamper myself this year I also haven’t had time for a pedicure. So my feet were a little rough, but after letting them sit in the moisturizing socks the gel formulated with sunflower seed oil, avocado oil and vitamin E left my feet feeling silky and cool.

Nothing feels better than a cooling hydration facial sheet mask to instantly replenish my stressed skin. This is a Daylogic (Rite Aid store brand) sheet mask.

Before I wrap up this blog, I applied to be a part of the Sephora Squad 2019. If you have a few seconds to spare, please click here to leave a testimony about my blog. This will be an opportunity for me to create more creative beauty content.I appreciate all the support and love.
