How I Deep Condition Natural Girls Hair

hairstyles for little black girls
Brown Girls Hair

This video shows how I deep condition my daughters natural hair. Our hair loves Kera Care products. I am using their Deep Moisturizing Masque.

First, I washed her hair with Kera Care Hydrating Detangling Shampoo. Then I put her hair into 4 sections. Next, I applied the deep moisturizing masque to her hair in small sections. Being careful to get each strand covered with product. Then I twisted each small section and moved to the next section.

I put a Adama Plastic Cap over it and left it on for 30 minutes. You can place her under the dryer if you choose. This time, I decided not to sit her under the dryer because we have been staying away from heat for a while.

After 30 minutes, I rinsed it out (with her twist still in). Last, I added Kera Care Leave-In Conditioner. I put it on each twist by unraveling each, adding the product, and twisting it back. After I was done, I put her night cap on and sent her to bed.

The next day, I choose to do twists on her hair. You can see pictures of it HERE! I'll post the video of the process next week!

A'Che & her chalk!

My daughter, A'Che, loves Spring & Summer Time!! One reason is because the weather is so nice which allows her to play outside AND she knows that school is almost out!! One of her favorite summer activities is playing with chalk in the driveway, on the sidewalk, and even on her trampoline!

4 Pc Chalk Holder

The great thing about chalk is that it only cost $1 at Dollar Tree! The cute 4 piece chalk holder, the 20 pieces of chalk, and the 6pc egg chalk were all $1 each!! You can't beat that for great outside time with your kids!!

Influenster #XOXOVoxBox Review


This is the most recent VoxBox that I received from Influenster back in February. Here's a rundown of all of the items that came in the box:

Adore Me Lingerie Set
Tide Pods with Febreze
Skinfix Hand Repair Cream
Land's End discount code
Colgate Optic White Toothbrush + Built-in Whitening Pen
3oz Colgate Optic White Toothpaste
John Freida Beach Blond Collection (shampoo,conditioner,and sea salt spray)
John Freida Luxurious Volume 7 Day Volume In Shower Treatment

My favorite items that are in this box are the Adore Me Set, Tide Pods, and the Colgate Toothbrush + Paste.

Adore Me

This box provided a code where I could go to the Adore Me website and pick out a set that I like for free. I chose this cute red and pink set which was perfect for Valentines Day! I love they way they box the items up. When you open the box you see HELLO ADORABLE!! I think that is a sweet touch! The undies are of good quality and after washing them they held together well.

Tide Pods with Febreze

I loved the way my clothes smelled and felt after washing them with the pods. They are so very easy to use. Just throw one in the wash, add your load, and turn it on! No messy powder or liquid to deal with. These are must haves for me!

My hubby snagged my Colgate items from the box! He used the toothbrush, toothpaste, and pen daily! I must say, we could notice a slight change in the color of his teeth. They are a little whiter. He has been using it for about a month. So we can conclude that it does work. Even if it's just a slight change at this point.

I just wanted to highlight my favorites that were in this box. I'm looking forward to the next one soon!

"I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes."

Fighting Childhood Cancer 5K Walk/Run

This past Saturday, my daughter and I were able to attend the Hailey Bankhead Foundation 5K Run/Walk that supports the fight against childhood cancer. My original post about the event shared the story of Hailey Bankhead, who is a cancer survivor, and also shared pictures of when my husband and I first met her and her lovely family.

My daughter wasn't at the event when we met Hailey, so she was very excited and eager to met her at the 3rd Annual 5K Run/Walk that we attended. First, let me say that it was an honor to be able to be support an organization that is about supporting children and families that are faced with and fighting through this terrible disease.

Hundreds of supporters showed up to run and walk including the Clayton County Police and Fire Department. There were bouncy houses, vendors, and plenty of food for everyone to eat. They even had health screenings and live entertainment.

Although it was literally freezing that day, we all had a great time! Here are a few pictures that I was able to snap. Some of them I grabbed from the Hailey Foundation Facebook page!

Save the date 9.12.15 for the next event, "Under the Stars"! We attended this formal dinner/ball last year and we had a fantastic time! Be sure to mark it on your calendar and support!

Stay Fresh with Norforms

feminine hygiene duppositories

When I was growing up many years ago, my Mom didn't talk to me about feminine stuff. Later in life, she told me it was because she was taught that it was something that you just didn't talk about. Most women my age in the black community that I know, Moms had the same mindset. That mindset caused me to have to figure things out on my own. Which wasn't easy at all.

I told myself, if I ever had a daughter, I would talk to her about everything. I would make it common for her and I to have conversations about her period, hygiene, and sex (at the appropriate time of course).

It has made things so easy for my daughter because she has developed very early. She got her cycle at the tender age of 9, one month and a few days before her 10th birthday and she was prepared because we talked about it. I'll share that in another post.

Anyway, although Norforms have been around for a long time, I found out about them about a year ago. I've always had great personal hygiene and when I saw these, I thought wow, I wonder if they work!

They are suppositories that help combat odor internally safely. They come with an applicator that you use to insert them. They are very small but powerful LOL!

You should wear a pantie liner because it dissolves and runs back out. It makes you smell great down there! They have 2 fragrances; Island Escape (my favorite) and Tropical Splash. 12 come in a box. They are Dermatologist and Gynecologist tested. p-H balanced. Hypoallergenic and safe and gentle for everyday use!

I'll probably let my daughter start using these when she turns 13 or so. For now, I'm enjoying not having to share them!!

There is no reason for anyone to be funky these days!! Oh, this is NOT a sponsored post. I just wanted to share some hygiene tips!

Irresistible Me Hair Accessories

hair, accessories, jewelry, natural, updo, black, women
Brown Girls Hair Accessories

Irresistible Me sent me 5 hair accessories to try from their new line. I am going to break down what I love, like, and -not so much- about the accessories that I have.

Trinity Hair Combs

The Trinity Hair Combs is my F A V O R I T E!! It can be used in so many ways to spruce up all kinds of styles! It is easy to use and it doesn't snag my hair at all!

Khaleesi Tikka

The Khaleesi Tikka is the cutest hair pin that I have ever seen. I love the way it looks and the quality of it. I had a hard time taking it out because it grips the hair very tight and I wanted to make sure I didn't pull or break my hair while removing it. Overall it is a stunning hair accessory.

Isis Headband

The Isis Headband is a very dressy headband. I love the way it looks in my hair. It will certainly give a simple hairstyle the red carpet look. My cons to this is that it did snag several strands of my hair when removing it.

Kiara Hair Comb

Although this is a the top of the list of being the cutest, the Kiara Hair Comb is my least favorite to put in my hair. The combs are not smooth and they snagged my hair really bad when I removed them. The chains with the rhinestones also snagged my hair really bad. That made this my least favorite.

Kate Bobby Pin

The Kate Bobby Pin is cute and simple, but just like the Khalessi Tikka, it has a very tight grip so you must be careful removing it. It also has a rhinestones at the top of the crown that snagged my hair.

Needless to say I love the Trinity Hair Combs. It's the one that I wear the most. Use discount code IrresistibleShaunic here to get yours with a special discount!

Grow Your Nails with Me *Week 12*

How to Grow Long Nails

I know I said that I would wait until I reached  my maximum length to do one last video, but the length of my nails wasn't clear on the last video so I wanted to do a video where you could clearly see my nails. I did a better job of showing them on this one.
