Best Natural Hair Products


I came across this video on Youtube and thought I would share it with you if you are natural or transitioning.  These are some of the best products out there, of course you may want to try and see if they agree with your hair type.  You may have to try several products before you find the right one for you.  This video is by Hamstring187


Elegant Style # 5


If you are in a hurry this style will literally take less than 10 minutes.  With the right accessories you will definitely get noticed!!  And if you are single… BONUS!   This turorial is from xGOLDn.  Remember the updo speaks for itself, keep the makeup natural and clothing simple.

Elegant Style # 4


I can totally see this style with a gorgeous dress for New Year’s Eve!  This tutorial is from thekglifestyle.   You think your hair may not be long enough?  well don’t worry, as long as you are able to do a ponytail with your hair, you can add extension to create this style.  You can use the afro/kinky braids and I bet you will come up with something spectacular.

What to bring at your office potluck!


Every year I bring the same thing for my work potluck and people always end up asking for the recipe.  Seriously these Skor Bars are delicious and easy to make.  Here is the recipe


3/4 cup butter
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 (300 ml) can sweetened condensed milk (Eagle brand)
2 tbsp butter (butter)
1 (300 g) pkg Chipits milk chocolate chips
1 (225 g) pkg Chipits Skor toffee bits


Preheat oven to 350F degrees.

Cream first 3 ingredients until well blended and mixture comes together. Press evenly into a 9X13 cake pan.

Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes, or until light golden.

Cool on wire rack while preparing filling.

Heat sweetened condensed milk and 2 tbsp butter in heavy saucepan, stirring constantly over medium heat for 5-10 minutes, or until thickened. Spread over baked base.

Bake 12-15 minutes longer, or until golden.

Sprinkle Chipits milk chocolate chips evenly over top. Bake 2 minutes more, or until chocolate is shiny and soft.

Remove from oven. Spread chocolate evenly.

Sprinkle Skor Toffee Bits on top, pressing lightly into chocolate.

Cool completely. If necessary, chill just to set chocolate before cutting into bars.

Store at room temperature.

Freezing: Excellent.

Leave-in conditioner recipe


I have been looking for quite a while for a good leave-in conditioner and I think I might give this recipe a try.  It is Kimmaytube’s PH balanced Leave-in Conditioner Recipe.

You will need:

2 TB of your favourite sulfate-free conditioner

2 TB “Lily of the Desert” Aloe Vera Juice,

2tsp “Desert Essence” Jojoba Oil,

2tsp “The Palma Christi” Castor Oil.

Mix all the ingredients and keep refrigerated.  You can add 5-6 drops of Tea Tree oil to preserve the conditioner.

Elegant Style #3 …curls, curls, curls


You are suddenly invited to a function and you don’t know what to do with your hair?  Don’t panic!!! Here’s a simple hairdo you can do even if your hair is not very long.  This turorial is by backsyncfan.  I am hoping by the time I remove my kinky twists my hair will be as long as her, so that I can give this hairdo a try.
