Product of the Day: Doris NY Leave-In Conditioner

Allow us to highlight this satiny smooth styling dynamo. Doris NY Leave-In Conditioner is a coveted curly girl must have. Check out the deets:

Smell: Delicious. A little fruity. A little floral. Like a high-end sweet treat.

Use: It’s great to use for two strand twists or simply for moisturizing parched locks.

Ingredients: It’s chocked full of shea, seaweed extract, clary sage, olive oil, coconut oil and keratin protein.

What does it do: It helps repair split ends and nourish hair that’s been damaged by chemical processing. It works wonders for flyaways and doesn’t weigh down your curls.

Review: Pantene Pro-V Truly Natural Line

Good news, everyone. The once tiny aisle of hairstyling offerings for women of color is ever-expanding with the literal explosion of the natural hair movement. Pantene Pro-V, known for its Relaxed & Natural line, has decided to separate the two and create the Truly Relaxed line (formulated for those with chemically-treated hair) and the Truly Natural line (formulated for those with natural kinks, curls and waves).

We’re Hanging Out On Ouidad’s Home Page Today!

Ouidad

Watch my video here!

Why We Love Sage Naturalceuticals

I remember the first time someone told me about “Sage.”  On Black Friday last year I wanted to know what some of the other “curly” brands were doing.  I sent out a tweet to ask around to see what I’d be able to “come up” on.  Someone tweeted me back that they took advantage of the sale online at “Sage.”  I remember replying back with, “What is SAGE?”  I had never heard of it.  Was it a new product line?
