Updated Moisturize Hair Routine for Natural Hair

I have been natural for about five years and it continues to be a learning experience for me. I just wanted to share what I put in my hair to keep it soft and manageable.  After shampoo and conditioning the first thing I use is Cantu Shea Butter Leave in Conditioning.  I love this product because it leaves my hair soft and the detangle process is easier. I also use it on the twins hair.

After that I use a plastic bowl to mix 2 tablespoon of coconut oil, 1 tablespoon vitamin E and of aloe vera. I play with the amount depending on how much I think my hair needs.  Accept for the coconut oil that I bought at Costco. All other products I bought at my local beauty supply store.
Coconut oil helps repair and retain moisture. 

Vitamin E helps promote hair growth and helps with splits ends. 

Aloe Vera helps also to improve the strength of the hair and helps keep it moisturized. 

Once I'm done I lock it all in using a small amount of Dax Bees Wax. 

I don't worry anymore about my hair feeling dry in between shampoo/ co-washing.  I can't wait for my next hair check in June/July.

Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation


I saw a review on YouTube about this product and I had to give it a try.  I'm so glad I did. I love it.  I consider this one of my more expensive foundation. It comes in at $34.00 at Sephora. I bought it in a Deep 66 - medium/deep complexion with warm beige undertone. The good thing about Lock-It Tattoo is that you don't need a lot.  I use only one pump. It is a high pigmented foundation.  If you use too much it will look cakey.  It states you can wear it for 24 hours.  I personally don't need to wear my makeup for that long, but it does last the whole day. It also has natural polymers to absorb oil.  I always moisturized my skin and use a primer before putting it on. I don't feel the need to use my concealer with this foundation. My hubby even said he like whatever foundation I was using.  So that's always a plus when hubby notices anything to do with my makeup. I love the design of the bottle. I personally think for the price it's worth trying out.

I would love to hear if you have tried Lock-It Tattoo Foundation or if you're thinking about trying it. Plus what's you're favorite foundation?  Have a great day!
