B.A.S.K Yam Nectar Intense Hair Nourisher : Random giveaway-CLOSED

I ordered some body products from BASK Beauty Assortment for the Sun-kissed on Black Friday.  I received a 2oz sample of the newest item soon to debut. Its Called Y.A.M. Nectar Intense Hair Nourisher. I've tested it out on a friends hair and STELLAR results.  I still have my 4oz jar as you only need a tiny bit, it emulsifies into a rich cream once water hits your hair so I'm giving this away . This random giveaway will only run for 24 hours.

Ingredients:
Clover Honey, Vegetable Glycerin, Yucca Oil (virgin olive oil infused with Yucca root), Avocado Oil, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Manuka Honey, BTMS, Panthenol, Essential Oils of Grapefruit and Copaiba, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin.


ETA:The Y.A.M. is really thick, so it has to be applied to wet hair (right after shampooing). Part your freshly shampoo'd hair into sections & apply a little of the Y.A.M. Honey Treatment - it will emulsify into a conditioning cream once it comes in contact with water. Let it soak into your hair for at minimum 15 to 20 minutes (steam with it for optimal results). Please RINSE out......this is pure honey afterall so you don't want your hair left feeling sticky! 

email QUESTIONS at the customer_service@baskbeauty contact


 You must leave a comment describing what your Thanksgiving Holiday was like! I'm nosey! :)




You must be a follower of the blog or FB page and this will only be in the 48 US states

This giveaway is closed, thank you

MTV Casting for Woman Who Wants to Do Big Chop

I just saw this on NaturallyCurly



Is your hair your obsession? How are you struggling with your hair? Do you feel natural hair would let you embrace your true self, and you want to go for the “big chop?” Why now? What has held you back up to this moment? We would like to follow someone who is ready to do the "big chop" and follow them on their journey as they transition into their natural hair. 

If you appear to be between the ages of 15 -28 and would like us to document your transition to natural hair, email us atcasting@lintonmedia.com and tell us about your story. Please include your name, location, phone number and recent photos of yourself.

Welcome: Curl Junkie Pattern Pusha

Smells very fruity but looks like the Aloe Fix, slightly looser though.

Calendula Black Soap Wash


1 teaspoon of Calendula flower powder
1 teaspoon of Black Soap
1 teaspoon of Aloe Vera Gel
1 tablespoon of Aloe Vera Juice


Mix together and let sit in order for the black soap to dissolve. Usually after 24 hours the black soap is completely dissolved but as I am going out soon I kept mixing until the mix started to foam.( which lets me know the soap is breaking down with the other ingredients.










  • Calendula is  natural herb which is transformed into oils, gel and ointment to cure gastritis, eczema, wounds, sunburn and stings. Research shows that the use of calendula can help improve blood flow in the body, especially in affected skin areas. This helps renew and rebuild the skin.
  • People with dry broken skin are more likely to get benefitted from calendula since it is a great skin healer. It can very well cure skin irritations because of its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties.
  • People who are faced with acne problems can also be benefited from calendula since it serves as a great way to cure acne.
Please do a skin test prior, also black soap can be very drying so be sure to follow up with a moisturizing oil or moisturizer for your face after washing.



CurlyKinks: Curl Refresh Product Review

Whenever I wear kinky-twists all I need to keep my scalp happy is a good spritz.  I placed an order for Curly Kinks new shampoo and the owner was gracious enough to include a sample of her Curl Refresh Moisturizing Spritz.

I love how so far everything has the same vanilla scent to them. So far the leave in and styler have worked great so I have high hopes for the rest of the line.  The spritz has an opaque milky look to it and when depressed the spritz evenly sprays out to cover each twist.  My scalp feels soft as well as the hair closest to the scalp. That tells me its doing it job as well. It also alleviates that dry feel that this Marley twist hair has . So far so good I can say this is a great spritz for my kinky-twists.


Aloe Vera Juice, Vegatable Glycerin, Pro-Vitamin B5 (Panthenol), Plantango Extract, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Chondrus Crispus (Carrageenan) Extract, Althaea Officinalis (Marshmallow) Root Extract, Polysorbate 20 (vegetable derived), Xanthan Gum, Potassium Sorbate, Citric Acid, Fragrance

Laquita Bobeam Giveaway-Closed




Ok so I was minding my business on NaturallyCurly and as usual, yes I'm blaming her, NEA reviewed some of Bobeams poo bars so I immediately placed an order.  Lord lord lord. This woman has got a gold mine right here. I ordered the Honey and Oats, Shea-loe , and her Shea moisturizer. The first bar I used was the Honey and Oats.  The bubbles hit my hair immediately, the bar slide down my hair strands, the soap action was amazing but the softness and cleaning skills are on par.



 I mean these are some OUTSTANDING poo bars. I'm telling you, I'm stocking up,  I even used it on my heat damaged friends hair. It made her hair soooooooo soft.I didn't have to use an ACV after or anything.  I went straight to conditioning.
 Sudsy

 I am impressed and when that happens I will tell the world. I hope she continues to grow in blessings and business because she really has something right here.  Her customer service isn't anything to snub either.  She was kind enough to throw in samples and incense.  I love incense, makes me feel all soft and cuddly inside...
Marinating








Rinsed
 So yup I begged and she was kind enough to oblige. Anyone want to try a poo bar, well subscribe to my blog and " like" Bobeam on Facebook and 4 lucky winners will have the chance to win a SHAMPOO BAR
Make sure you tell Laquita A Happy  Nappy Affair sent you!







Leave a comment letting me know you subscribed and have you ever tried a poo bar before.  Don't forget to head over " like" Bobeam on Facebook 

 This giveaway will be running until the end of November! Happy Washing!


THIS GIVEAWAY is CLOSED! Thank you all for participating!

The white haired monster

Anytime I use a cream styler, it takes forever to disappear.

Shea Butter aka Gray butter

 I love products with Shea butter in them.  Shea butter is just the bomb.com for me, however if its not a well formulated product or its too high on the ingredient list, it will not absorb into my hair.  I get the best absorption if I use it on wet/damp hair but if it use it on dry hair , after sitting for awhile you can see the gray cast to my hairs appearance.

 I  roller-skate a lot so I usually  do my hair days prior to going , well last Friday, I wanted to wear a twist-out , so I used some of Born Organics Shea-aloe.  LOL, lord I saw a picture of my hair as I was skating and all I could do is chuckle. The product along with sweat and camera flash illuminated all that product so darn easy.

I cant grasp the Braidout

 I've been trying and trying for awhile now but braid-outs never turned out the way I want them to.  I think maybe I need to adjust my products with something that has some hold to it. Everything I use is geared for moisture so by the time I take the braids out my hair has poofed out  and the definition is gone.  I'm going to work on them this fall and winter.

 Last night I mixed  Oyins Whipped Pudding with a little Shine and Define in the palm of my hand, then applied it to my dried hair. After that I braided with Qhemet Biologics Twisting Butter. The shine is nice but it looks as if my hair is spreading already this morning.



anyone with tips, I would appreciate it!

The best SheaMoisture hair masque: Purification Hair Masque

Now I've tried all of the other masques released by SheaMoisture and while I liked them, none of them have tickled my fancy until now. This stuff is amazing. It has a nice slip , dissolves into hair, and softens my hair as a prepoo. I can only imagine how it will work as a deep conditioner. I think the kicker is CLAY, its too early in the game but this dare I say knock Darcy Botanicals out the box for me



Deionized Water , Cocos Nucifera Oil (Coconut) , Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) , Mangfera Indica Seed Butter (Mango) , Persea Gratissima Oil (Avocado) , African Black Soap Extract , Sea Salt , Cetyl Esters , Kaolin Clay , Grapeseed Oil , Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil (Jojoba) , Behentrimonium Chloride (Conditioner) , Salicylic Acid , Salix Alba Bark Extract (Willow) , Melia Azadirachta Seed Oil (Neem) , Melaleuca Alternifolia Leaf Oil (Tea Tree) , Sorbitol Esters , Aloe Vera Leaf Juice , Tocopherol (Vitamin E) , Rosemary Extract , Salvia Officinalis Extract (Sage) , Plantain Extract , Lonicera Caprifolium Flower and Lonicera Japonica Flower Extract (Honeysuckle and Japanese Honeysuckle)
