We all know by now that I prefer co-washing my hair to actually applying shampoo. Most shampoos leave my hair extremely dry, unmanageable, hard as brick, no shine whatsoever and frizzy. If I washed my hair once a week, this would not be a problem, but since I wash it three times a week after all the treatments I do, it would just damage my … Continue reading Shampoos I Recommend
The name always makes me think of a place in Japan. Do not ask me why, it just does. The packaging does not help either. That mountain on the logo and the pink flowers. Anyways, originally from Brazil, this product works wonders , has many functions and has different formulas but I’ll talk about the yellow, traditional one in specific. I have tried at least two … Continue reading Product Review: Yamasterol
Yes, yes, I know another “poo” in this business. This is an option for the ones who just cannot wash their hair without a shampoo.

If you are interested in reading and learning a bit more about what Suki Suki … Continue reading Suki Suki Naturals Intense Mango Butter: Product Review
It’s been a while since I’ve last spoken or given any homemade masks. To tell the truth, my hair has been receiving even less treatment. Work, travels and just a busy schedule has had me working with very little, mostly 3 to 5 minutes masks. And I’m not a big fan of them. To top it all off, with my recently dyed hair, this lack of … Continue reading Hydrating Mask: Dyed Hair
So besides using conditioner, I’m supposed to leave it on my hair? Not in that sense, no. We have the shampoo, the conditioner and the leave-in conditioner. Three different products with different responsibilities. Until recently, I did not realize the power a leave-in conditioner has on my hair. It just changes the look and feel completely. Trust me on this one! Until recently I had … Continue reading Leave-In Conditioner? What for?
We natural beauties have lots of options when it comes to hair products and hair routines, we just got to dig a little deeper.
