DIY | Eyelash Growth Serum

Hey Beauties,

My current other adventure besides growing my hair out is eye makeup and eyelashes.

I've wanted to try lash extensions but that is not currently in my budget.  So I tried falsies (strip lashes) for the first time on Christmas.  That was an adventure, but I got them on and loved them!

However, I still want long healthy natural lashes as well so I came across a nightly routine using caster oil.  So far I can say that my lashes are darker, shinier, and look healthier already.  I have only done this routine for one week so far...

Here is the video that found about using Castor oil to grow lashes...

Thank you for reading and more results to come!

Hair Health | Anemia Damage Gone!

Happy New Year Curlies!

Thank you for reading and following my blog!

My staple products have changed.  Here is my updated staples list.  I use mainly products by Edens Body Works

Cleanser - 
Edens Body Works Cleansing Conditioner

Conditioner - 
Edens Body Works Coconut Shea Hair Mask

Leave-in - 
Edens Body Works Coconut Shea

Stylers - 
I use Coconut Shea Curl Defining Creme when I want a strong hold.  This won't leave you hair crunchy either.
I use Cocount Shea Pudding Souffle when I want big fluffy hair.  This leaves has a soft hold and pairs well with the leave in.  The leave-in with the defining creme is a bit too heavy for my hair.

I have been lax on pre-pooing but think I will go back to using coconut oil.

I have tried steaming with my deep conditioner and I LOVE it! My hair is so soft and easy to detangle afterwards.  I believe the steaming really helps the product to penetrate may hair better.  I do not have a steamer; I use MissT1806 method of with a shower cap, a turbin, and my bonnet dryer.  You can watch her video here:

Anemia Damaged Gone!

So I cut off all of he anemia damaged ends off in August! Woohoo! Yes, it's been awhile since I posted.  I don't why I didn't cut it all off earlier I am so much happier and my curls are springy! I will be honest that my hair doesn't seem to be as thick I as I remembered it to be before the anemia hit. However it seems to be growing pretty fast, I need a trim already!  Here are some different styles I have been wearing...

Damaged ends cut off and twists!
