one of those things....

So I'm walking around the hair store and these two women walk in staring at me like I'm some kind of alien and one announces, "I didn't know WHITE people shopped here!" Lol just another one of the joys of having an interracial family, trying to shop for hair products. Either people stare at us, or there is an abundance of people trying to help me find something. It's nice to be helpful but I got this! lol One woman even came up to Jamilah when her hair was in a puff, felt her hair and said "this girl needs a perm, I can help you find a good one" UMMM No thanks! I don't need any help and I don't appreciate all the advice we get about getting perms!! I got this!! Her hair is beautiful just the way it is! BOO! to the haters!

I do love it when natural women commend me for leaving my daughter's hair natural! I love it when naturals tell me I'm doing a good job with her hair and appreciate that a white woman can understand the importance of being natural! LOVE IT! Thanks for all of you who have given me so much encouragement!!

Keep rocking the Natural Ladies!!!

Product Usage:

Use as a Scalp Treatment: Apply directly to scalp nightly. Use as a

Finishing Product for added sheen: Warm in the hands and apply where needed.

Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Gardenia Tahitensis Flower E xtract

Our experience:

We used the Monoi de tahiti oil fora hot oil treatment between styles. I warmed it slightly in the microwave and applied to Jamilah's hair then waited about 30 minutes before rinsing and washing out. He rhair was very shiny ans soft. I decided to put her hair into some braids using some new spring colored beads we had picked up. I applied more of the monoi de tahiti oil to her scalp and when her hair was dry I smoothed more at the ends of her hair where her hair tends to be a little more brittle and frizzy.

I braided her hair using THIS method from Katlynylyn and her result was beautiful Shiny braids!!

LOVE this oil!!! It smooths so nicely into the hair and leaves is soft and shiny!

Thanks to Kynx for allowing us to review there product!!

Darcy's Botanicals Review and giveaway 2

Darcy's Botanicals

Cherry Kernel Nectar Hair and Body OilThis light, cold pressed emollient oil absorbs easily into hair and skin.

It contains natural antioxidants along with vitamins A & E. It feels wonderful on skin.

Cherry Kernel Oil also contains a polyunsaturated fatty acid called eleostearic, which helps to protect hair and skin from the sun.

Can be used as a light moisturizing oil for hair, body, and face:)

We scent it with the sweet succulent fragrance of black cherries.

Our experience:
Yummy, delish! We love the scent of this oil. It's a nice light oil that can be used on the whole body, hair and face and it smells delicious, what else could you ask for? We Love it! My daughter cannot use a lot of perfumes (due to her severe eczema) so she loves this oil, not only is she treating her skin but she feels like she is putting on her "perfume" since it smells so nice! It's a must have!

Baka Beautiful Review #2

Baka Beautiful Review #2
We have been using several products from Baka Beautiful on Jamilah's hair and as you can see her hair is looking longer and her curl pattern has opened up a bit. She can now wear her hair down and have it fall to her shoulders, which is the look she prefers for herself. As I stated in my previous review the Natural-Laxer does not straighten the hair, it contains no chemicals, it's a treatment that makes hair more manageable and adds curl definition but does not permanently alter the hair!
The pictures above were taken after the 3rd treatment, using the Silk Protein Shampoo and Conditioner and using the Curl Enhancer and hair butter (all discussed below). We really like this line of products, it's really unlike any other we have tried.
There are several products out there that claim to be "natural relaxers" but contain harsh chemicals that may RUIN your hair!! Natural-laxer is the ONLY product like this we would recommend so don't be fooled by other companies that throw words like "natural" out there but really contain chemicals. Baka Beautiful Natural-Laxer contains only Sahara Clay, myrtle, rose petals, fenugreek, nettle, sage. All natural and all good for the hair!!

We Love it!!

Customer service is also great, there to answer any questions you may have!!

Silk Protein Conditioner

Deep conditions in just 60 seconds. No need to wait 15 minutes for results.
Structurizing proteins of different molecular weights penetrate deep within
the hair shaft producing benefits like no singular protein can:

(1) Rice protein with low molecular weight penetrates the hair shaft to
rebuild and strengthen damaged hair.

(2) Corn Protein with mid-range molecular weight adds shine and luster.
Enriched with 19 amino acids and 14 vitamins essential to hair nutrition.
Botanical extracts revitalize and energize depleted, stressed hair.
Special anti-static formula fights flyaway hair and the frizzies.
Produces exceptional manageability and a healthy luster. Contains
a broad spectrum sunscreen protection. pH balanced.

Our experience:

Very good conditioner, softened and detangled Jamilah's hair after only a brief application. Great to use after Natural-laxer treatment and after silk protein shampoo or Max Moist shampoo with Argan oil!

Silk Protein Shampoo:
This is the perfect match to our Silk Protein Conditioner. Because not everybody has oily or dry hair, just damaged hair in need of repair. Pair them together to restore and re-balance the hairs ph level, leaving your hair smooth and stress-free with a healthy luster. Silk Proteins help soothe and moisturize the hair without adding weight to the hairs surface. For All Hair Types.

Our experience:

Cleaned Jamilahs hair without overdrying. We use this product before using the natural-laxer on Jamilah's hair to remove and residue and after the treatment to remove any remaining product from the hair.

DEFINITION, Curl Enhancer

Use After or in between NATURAL-LAXER MIX Applications or Anytime for Styling Maintenance, Definition, Sheen & Control.

REDUCES FRIZZ because it is Humidity Resistant. ELIMINATES DRYNESS.

Light & Creamy Maintenance & Radiant Style Finisher, which adds a wonderful SHEEN and touchable Finish to your enhanced & Defined Curl or Wave.


Our experience:

This is probably the best defining products I have tried!! It defined Jamilahs curls without having to smooth her curls one by one like I normally have to! Her curls had some much definition from this product I was amazed! You can see by the pictures above her curls were shiny and beautiful!

Baka Hair Butter

BAKA HAIR BUTTER 100% NATURAL Organic Shea Butter infused with Healthy Hair Oils. BAKA HAIR BUTTER melts in your hair and penetrates the Hair Shaft with HAIR HEALTHY Organic OILS

of ARGAN, JOJOBA, AVOCADO, ALMOND & HEMP. This combination of Shea Butter and Natural Oils combats DRYNESS,

Itchy Scalp, Split ends, and gives the hair a Healthy Sheen. Finished with a light fresh natural oil fragrance. Non-Greasy.


Ingredients: Organic Shea Butter, Organic African Argan Oil, Jojoba Oil, Avocado Oil, Almond Oil & Hemp Oil.

(NO Mineral Oil, NO Beeswax)

Our experience:

Very Nice hair butter! Jamilah tends to have a dry scalp and we love to smooth hair butter on her scalp to treat the dryness....Not all the time of course because the scalp does need to breathe! We also smooth it through her hair to add shine and treat her tresses! This has a pleasant scent and smooths nicely into the hair or scalp! We would recommend this hair butter!!

We also recommend you try:



MAX MOIST SHAMPOO w/ African Argan Oil

Darcy's Botanicals Review (Tightly Curly Method)

Darcy's Botanicals

Daily Cleansing Conditioner Cream

Our experience:

Awesome, gentle cleansing for the hair! I wet Jamilah's hair and gently massaged the Daily Cleansing Conditioning cream through her hair, cleansing her hair but not stripping it. After rinsing we applied the Peach Kernel Hydrating Milk as described below. Love it!!

Distilled Water, Cetearyl Alcohol,
Cetyl Alcohol, Rice Bran Oil, Organic Shea
Butter, BTMS, Grapeseed Oil, Vegetable
Glycerin, Cetyl Esters, Pyrus Malus (Apple)
Fruit Extract, Vaccinium Myrtillus (Bilberry)
Extract, Citrus Medica Limonium (Lemon)
Peel Extract, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis
(Orange) Peel Extract, Carica Papaya
(Papaya) Leaf Extract, Cationic Guar Gum,
Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin,
and Fragrance.

Peach Kernel (Natural Curls) Hydrating Milk

Our Experience:

We used the Peach Kernel Hydrating Milk with the Tightly Curly Method, found HERE (We used the Hydrating Milk instead of Conditioner)
While Jamilah's Hair was very wet we applied the hydrating milk and combed through her hair. The Hydrating Milk had great slip and the wide tooth comb slipped easily through her hair. We then sectioned the hair into four sections and smoothed each curl with the hydrating milk. It worked great, her curls were separated nicely and dried softly without being crunchy. Her hair looks shiny, and smells like peaches!! LOVE IT!

Dstilled Water, Organic Aloe Juice, Peach Kernel Oil, Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Jojoba, BTMS (emulsifying wax), Vegetable Glycerin, Yarrow, Sage, Horsetail, Nettle, & Lavender Extracts, MSM, a paraben-free preservative and fragrance
