Okay, I know I haven’t ever done a product review on here, but right now I just HAVE to!
I have been in the process of transitioning my hair and I’ve done my research, tried hundreds of products and nothing seemed to work. I’ve done DIY hair masks, I stopped using heat, wore protective styles and everything and still my hair was dry, brittle and I also had/have excessive heat damage.
A couple years ago my natural hair was amazing and as time went on my hair just got worse. Mind you I used to get my hair pressed every 2-3 weeks but when I would wash my hair it would curl right back up. So you know that when I washed my hair after getting it pressed and it didn’t curl up I was pressed.
Today my mom, sisters and I went to the beauty supply because my sister was getting her hair braided and I needed to get the products I use daily so I can pack them for college in the fall. I was in the hair product aisle and as I walked up and down, I was looking at all the hair masque’s deciding on which one I was going to waste my money on. I pick up the Aunt Jackie’s: Fix My Hair Intensive Repair Conditioning Masque and we pay for everything and we leave. After the long day we had and finally got home and when I got out the shower with my clean hair and thought that I might as well just try the masque now. I figured if I use it now at least I’ll be able to see if it works or not.
Obviously you put it on your hair and the jar says you leave it on 10 minutes and sit under a hooded dryer. I don’t have a hooded dryer so I just wrapped my hair in a shower cap and left it on for 30 minutes and when I rinsed it out MY HAIR WAS CURLED!!!! I was beyond shook and I just couldn’t believe it. I just loved the fact that I finally found a product that helped my hair get back to its old state. When I tell you I had so much heat damage and dry hair it literally dried straight. No curls at all. Now, my hair is soft curly, but I still need to work on this frizz thing.
I recommend this product 100% Definitely 10/10.
Remember that everyone’s hair is different so it may or may not work the way you want it to.
Growing up the way I did I was always in competition with others. Or so I thought. I was really in competition with myself. I used to a always tear myself down because I knew the potential that I had and I wanted everyone else to see it too. Being shy and kept to myself didn’t help. At all. I knew that I needed an escape or a way to clear my head. That’s when writing and photography came into play. They were what I used when I felt no one understood me or when I was just down in general. I feel as if everyone needs one.
I started writing at a(n) young age actually. I’d say since the 4th grade. I remember writing short stories which of course, had bad grammar, but I didn’t notice because all these creative thoughts and ideas were just constantly flowing through my head. I wrote a play using my cousins as cast members and performed it in front of my family. In the beginning I’d say I was a fiction writer, but as I grew older I turned to non-fiction only because I was going through a lot. I just thought with all the things I’ve experienced and seen from such a young age why not write about it?
Ever since I found the old photo albums in the dusty boxes around 5 photos and photography was something that I just knew was great. I wanted to be the one who with just a click of a button could hold a memory forever. Of course I found out photography isn’t that simple. Before I entered middle school I was given this little blue Nikon Coolpix and I thought I was going to be the next Annie Leibovitz. I took pictures of EVERYTHING! Not knowing what aperture and ISO to use only because I had no idea what they were or that they existed.
Okay I’m getting off topic…
I strive to be a better me everyday. Whether its mentally or physically I want to gradually get better everyday that I can. I am constantly learning something new when it comes to writing and photography.
I am a passenger. Slowly, but surely, getting through life day by day. I like to believe that I am original and unique, but I remember throughout school I would change to fit in. I was always a shy kid so having friends is something that I felt I needed to “survive”. I remember at the prom after party, I definitely wasn’t a passenger. Everyone was either drunk, high, or both. My instincts were telling me to just act drunk and have a good time because I didn’t need weed or alcohol to have fun. Besides it was my first party and I had never drank or smoked before so I really didn’t need it. Then as I sat back and observed how everyone was having so much fun being drunk and high I just wanted to try it. I got a cup of jungle juice and it was really good and sweet, but as soon as I got towards the bottom is was clear that the amount of alcohol in there was excessive. Once I was finished I knew that was the reason why I don’t drink and I was perfectly fine with it.
I feel high school overall is full of nothing but passengers. Everyone is just riding the wave, channel surfing as most of my teachers would say, and keeping up with the latest trends. There are so many people that I know who changed based on how their friends acted. Everyone has their reasons and at the end of the day that is their life and decision.
