This is likely the only time where you hear me rave about tea. I’m your coffee-obsessed kind of girl, but this hair care line by Pai-Shau based on a proprietary blend of concentrated steeped teas, is making my life right now.
Pai-Shau is a vegan and cruelty free hair care line that marries an ancient bathing ritual from Vietnam with modern day science. I received Pai-Shau’s Replenishing Hair Cleanser and Supreme Revitalizing Mask (from their Hydrating Ritual) and Biphasic Infusion (from their Enhance Ritual) to review.
Having never heard of this brand, I held no expectations – which honestly, is the best thing to have, because I was totally WOWED. Read more

I hate to break it to you, but eventually gray hair will rule your mane. Chances are, if you are reading this article, you already know this to be true.
When we go gray, and how much, is a mix of genetics and lifestyle. So while you may not be able to avoid it, you can slow it down or simply cover it up.
Slow Gray Hair Growth with Vitamins and Minerals:
Eating healthy benefits you in more ways than one, and that includes gray hair! When you have a deficiency in certain vitamins and minerals, it can not only affect the strength and sheen of your hair, but your hair color, as well. Read more
Little did I know when growing up on the beaches of Rhode Island, that the wavy hair that came naturally among the sand and surf, would be a hairstyle I would try so hard to achieve as an adult.
While my hair does have a slight natural wave to it, it’s not really the kind that magazine hair is made of. Pinterest is full of how to get beach wavy hair tutorials that include curling wands, flat irons and braiding your hair before bed… but let me be honest with you, I prefer to do some things the easy way. Who has time for all of that? Read more
KEUNE’s So Pure products should simply be called “bottle of awesome.” I had never tried this line prior to being sent them a few months ago, and I was skeptical that anything could combat my scalp issue at the time. All I can say is, scalp dryness and flaking? GONE.
I’ve been on the hunt for a while for a good scalp exfoliator, especially one that is cruelty free. And let’s get real, I don’t really have the time or energy these days to whip up a good DIY. When I learned about KEUNE’s So Pure Exfoliating Shampoo, I was intrigued. Its main ingredients are tea tree oil, lavender, coconut and argan oil. It aims to remove build up, relieve itching and prevent future flaking. Read more
Anyone who is of mixed ethnicities knows how hard it is to find shampoos and conditioners for our hair types. I’m always on the look out for products that will keep my hair healthy, smooth, moisturized and soft. My mixed ethnicity (Afro-Guyanese, Indonesian, Amerindian and Portuguese), sometimes makes it difficult to find a product that works well for my hair type. Although my hair is thick and coarse, most products that are extra moisturizing tend to leave my hair oily and flat or sometimes even adds more frizz and leaves it feeling dry. Not so with HASK products! Read more
Looking to embrace your natural curls? I’ve been on the hunt to find the best products for curly hair since forever. Below are some amazing curly hair products that I recently had the chance to test out:
One of my favorite curly hair product lines is called The Gold System, which was developed by Oprah Winfrey’s longtime hair stylist, Andre Walker. The Gold System contains a series of products specially designed for naturally curly hair. These products work together to create gorgeous curls without having to go to a salon. The Gold System products include; the Ultimate Moisture Sulfate Free Shampoo, TKO Ultimate Moisture Conditioner, Beautiful Kinks Styling Crème Gelee and Get It Straight Styling Crème. Combined together, the Ultimate Moisture Sulfate Free Shampoo, TKO Ultimate Moisture Conditioner, Beautiful Kinks Styling Crème Gelee left my curls moisturized, shiny, defined, bouncy and frizz free. I will say that a little of the Beautiful Kinks Styling Crème Gelee goes a long way. I used the Get It Straight Styling Crème to blow dry my hair and this product was also a wonder! It took my curly hair to straight with shine, body and frizz free yet still looking and feeling healthy and moisturized. Read more

Right now my hair looks and feels dry, lackluster and just downright sad. I know that I could’ve taken better care of my hair, but sometimes it’s much too easy to neglect my hair care routine and just disguise less than stellar hair with a cute braid or bun. Agreed?
I decided to start the process of devoting more time to healthy hair by reevaluating the products I use to clean it. A lot of shampoos actually have a drying effect on my hair (textured, curly) so finding an alternative to drying shampoos was my first order of business.
This first hair cleanser I tried in my quest to undo the havoc I’ve wreaked on my hair was a non-sudsing, oil-based shampoo called From the Lab Transforming Hair Cleanser No. 724. Read more
This is sponsored post for Nexxus through Condé Nast. All opinions and amazingly vibrant hair are my own.
For those of us who color our hair, there is one thing we can all agree on – watching the perfect hair color fade away is a sad, sad experience. I’ve tried a variety of hair care tricks to make my hair color last longer; from washing with cool water to washing my hair less in general to using sulfate-free products. Now Nexxus has developed a color-safe hair care system to take the guess work out of the fading hair color mystery and retain hair’s vibrancy.
The Nexxus Color Assure system includes a Pre-Wash Primer, Shampoo, Conditioner and Glossing Tonic. There are a few things about this system that make it different from the typical sulfate-free and color-safe hair care lines. Read more
