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
