Discount Diva – Nordstrom Rack, Home Goods & Marshalls

So like I have said plenty of times before, I am all about discounts and saving money. No matter how much money I have in my bank account, I will always bargain shop because … 🤷🏽‍♀️why not? I drove by this cute little shopping center the other day and had to stop because it had a Nordstrom Rack, HomeGoods and Marshalls all next to one another. Of course, I had to do some retail therapy and I did a mini shopping haul. Before I talk about the things I bought, I just want to share my love for discount stores. For those of you who do not know what discount stores are, they are just that, merchandise (usually name brand), that is sold at a cheaper price at a store. If you love discount stores just as much as I do, comment below and tell me your favorite store (i’m always looking for new ones).

Grow Your Hair With Box Braids

So I recently got this strong urge to switch up my look a bit. I’ve been natural my entire life and either I wore my hair curly or straight. Whenever I would see people with braids, I would always low-key want some, but I never thought I could pull it off. One night I was in my bed on Pinterest pinning hairstyles to my ‘hair’ board and it was a done deal, I decided I was getting box braids. Luckily, I was able to get them done for ‘the free’ because my mom did them, might I add that my head was so sore afterwards like omg! I’m on this journey to grow my natural hair longer and this is the perfect hairstyle for that, so I plan to keep them in for about three weeks and there should be about an inch or two of new growth, which i’m excited about because who doesn’t want their hair to grow? Check out my braid growth regimen below: Continue reading Grow Your Hair With Box Braids

All About Flaxseed Gel For Natural Hair

So I just recently got into the ‘Flaxseed movement’  and I must say, I think I made the right choice. So many other natural hair youtubers have done videos on how to make your own flaxseed gel, for example Naptural85 and BiancaReneeToday and they seem to love it, they also have two totally different curly hair textures, so it goes to show just how versatile the gel is. I have been using ecostyler gel for years, but I would like to use something more natural to lay and slay my hair/edges. I did use flaxseed gel to lay my edges and put my hair in a bun, which put it to the ultimate test. I was shook nonetheless … at how smooth it laid my hair. It is also very inexpensive, I purchased a bag of Organic Flaxseeds from Marshalls for $3.99. Now this isn’t a strong hold, which I like because ecostyler would make my hair feel crunchy and hard after awhile and it also tames the frizz, so you’ll be good. Below are the steps I used to make my own DIY Flaxseed Hair Gel and the benefits I noticed.
