NEWS FLASH: Products for Sale

I have decided I need to get rid of a few hair products that didn't quite work for me, but may work well for someone else. For that reason, I didn't want to toss them in the trash, especially since they have been used only once or twice, if at all. So tomorrow I am going to post the products and discounted prices -- first come, first served. As people claim and pay for products I'll mark them as SOLD on the blog. This is a good way to try products or get your staples without paying full-price. Stay tuned!!!

Review: Urban Nature Hair Salon (MD)

I just wanted to share my recent experience at a natural hair salon over the weekend. I visited Urban Nature Hair Salon in Silver Spring, MD. I made an appointment about a week and a half prior for a much-needed trim and deep condition. Although I have been natural close to 3 years now, I haven't been to an actual natural hair salon because salons make me nervous. My sister usually trims my hair.

Overall, I liked the salon a lot. The stylists were professional and nice, the atmosphere was calming/relaxing, they took my hair concerns into consideration, and the prices were reasonable (after comparing to some other natural hair salons I visited online to check out). Kim was the stylist I worked with. My wash and deep condition felt great - my hair loved it. She trimmed my hair while wet. Now, I did have to get more than I would have liked cut off (my hair was damaged due to color I got about 2 years ago) BUT I am more concerned with healthy hair than length. Damaged hair looks a mess. Lol My hair looks and feels good and I am happy. MY ONLY SUGGESTION is this: Make sure you know exactly what you want when making your appointment. I say this because when I called I only told them I wanted a trim and DC. And that is all the time they scheduled me for. My appt was at 11am and she was taking her next appt at 12pm. They take their appointments ON TIME so I had to be done by 12. Which means, I couldn't get my hair styled. Lol So when I got home I just did a quick wash and go with Kinky Curly (see pics after the jump).

"Newspaper Nails"

I came across this manicure idea yesterday - I don't even remember how I stumbled upon it. But after seeing the 1st YouTube video, I went to Google to search for "Newspaper Nails" and tons of blog posts and vids came up for this cute little technique. I like to be creative, especially when it seems easy, so I had to give it a try. What I loved is that I didn't have to buy anything new for this so if it was a #Fail, no money lost :)
