My Favorite Shampoos

As a fellow natural, I’ve always read that we shouldn’t always wash our hair with shampoo because our hair is stripped of its natural oils. For me, I can’t go without shampoo so I had to find a good one that will not only help me keep my natural oils in tact, but will also aid detangling  as well. So I found a couple products I love and would like to share with you!

My favorite shampoo of all time is the Crème of Nature Argan Oil from Morocco Sulfate Free Shampoo (trying saying that 3 times). This shampoo can be found pretty much anywhere: Walmart, or your local beauty supply store. What I love about this shampoo is not only does it hydrate my hair, it gently cleanses my hair without any harsh moisture stripping agents. The best thing about this shampoo is that it helps detangle while adding extra moisture to my hair! That’s an A+ in my book! I’ve been using this shampoo for a couple years and its always been a staple in my hair care regimen. I always use this shampoo on extremely dry, brittle hair, and I can use my fingers to rake my hair thoroughly.

The Optimum shampoo from the Amla Legend line was introduced to me in a monthly Curlkit this spring. I received this shampoo along with other full size products as well. I was skeptical about using it because my hair doesn’t like anything else. After a protein treatment, I used this to cleanse my hair, which completely helped getting out excess tangles, removing buildup as well. It was easy to slide my fingers through each strand of hair, and removing any knots. This product also smells amazing!

Travel Diary: Atlanta,Georgia.

This past weekend, I went to the “A” with my honey, Benjamin for a weekend getaway. Atlanta is one of my favorite places to visit. The shops, the restaurants, the events, and nightlife are endless. Also this weekend was the Taaliah Waajid Word Natural Hair Show. I’ve learned about this event years ago and I try to go to check out new natural hair products and also meet my favorite Youtubers! Events like this always have discounts on products that you can replenish and even new things that has yet to be released! I visited my favorite booths like Crème of Nature, Camille Rose Naturals, and LottaBody. Crème of Nature had color demonstrations and workshops about color care not to mention great prices of bundle items. Camille Rose Naturals had their items for $10/each so I definitely hit jackpot. LottaBody had an awesome bundle bag for $15 which was a steal!

For me, a couple of hours is all I need at the event (maybe I’ll stay for all the events next time) and then I’m out to enjoy the rest of my time in Atlanta. Shout out to my honey for putting up with me and all things girly. He took all the pics for me while I roamed around!

Our next stop was the Georgia Aquarium! The Georgia Aquarium is the world’s largest aquarium in the world and absolutely stunning! Ben and I were kids in that place. We went at an awkward time so we missed the events, like the Dolphin shows, or a chance to see divers interact with the fish. All in all our time there was great and we even had a caricature made!

Before dinner, we had to visit the infamous Lenox Square Mall where I purchased a pair of Tory Burch Miller Sandals. I’ve had my eyes on them for a very long time and I deserved something nice. After extensive research, I got them! Tory Burch does have quality shoes, and I’m definitely going to get my money’s worth. After leaving, I had to stop by Sprinkles and experience purchasing cupcakes through their ATM machine. I just picked the cupcakes I wanted, swipe my card and the cupcakes appear through the square slot!
