Weekend Body Care Routine

Monday, April 21, 2014

The weekend presents me with a little more time for body care:

Salt Scrub

Exfoliate to improve circulation, reduce inflammation and removes dead skin cells. I also give the locks a good deep cleanse.


I rarely shave but  I do I make sure to exfoliate regularly. My legs don't have much hair, but the heavy body butter required to off-set the climate of my new residence builds up very easy. The build up is quite obvious from the run off of my deep cleanse and exfoliate.

Though I do still have an elaborate skin routine, on those many evenings in which I have no time at all because I'm dealing with screaming toddlers after a long day at work. This is my quick routine:

Hair Color Heaven

Tuesday, March 18, 2014

Because I have a million things to do, here is a quick and dirty review of SheaMoisture's new hair color system (in Soft Black).

Well frankly.... AMAZING SAUCE!

The hair  color... smells like a field of rainbows, but if you are sensitive to scent, this may be too strong for you. I myself love it. I secretly fear my locs smell like wet dog after a good round of color, definitely not a problem with this product.

The shampoo, conditioner and hair oil that comes in the package alone is worth the purchase! I have not had such a luxurious shampoo since I stopped making my own.

The amount of color in the box is more than ample. I've had shortage issues with other natural hair colors in the past. This fully covered my hair with some left over. 

I'll update the longevity of the hair color later but for now, this product gets 5 awesomes
from Sisterlocked.

Please note that I am giving away a box of this hair color system in the available color of your choice!

Giveaway: SheaMoisture Hair Color System

Monday, March 17, 2014

Move across country and you may spend a great many hours scouring Target for clearance steals.  I'm short on time these days and because I had no desire to make more than one trip, I searched Target, in-lieu of Wholefoods for a natural hair color option. I was just about to give up when I noticed a random clearance display filled with clearance hair colors and my mouth dropped when I saw Shea Moisture has an ORGANIC hair color system! I almost peed my pants from the joy of seeing such a caliber product on clearance for 50% off.

By the way, this was not surprising  since this particular city in Southern California has a brown population of like 1%.

Since my Instagram photo melted my tumblr with overwhelming responses of surprise and deep desire, I decided to giveaway a few boxes. Yes, GIVEAWAY TIME!

Threading and Facial Hair

Sunday, March 2, 2014

For eons now I've been waxing and, more recently, threading my brows. I think I have killed all the sensors in my brow area. But today, after refusing many offers by the wax techs, I volunteered my upper lip. There are these two little spots on the side of my upper lip with this fine hairs that weren't pale (like the others) but in fact a slight black and becoming more noticeable. I'd always refused to have them removed before out of fear the taking any action against their existence would cause the wrath of thicker, darker and more noticeable facial hair. Because I am serving as a bridesmaid next weekend, I was inspired to have them threaded when I went for my eyebrows. 

My gosh, it was the most painful beauty thing I ever did. My poor virginal lip area had never felt the pain of hair removal and my, how we suffered. Now that their gone, I realized that they were only noticeable when I would stare at my face close up. The things we suffer through out of our own paranoia....

FYI, the photo above is prior to threading....

May the odds be EVER in YOUR FAVOR

Thursday, February 6, 2014

I landed tickets to the Hunger Games Red Carpet Premiere in November of last year and while I was in California, I was serendipitously called for a job interview. Now I'm living in Southern California.

These pictures are epically late, but here are a few from that trip. Cameras were not allowed at the premiere, so no close ups of Jennifer Lawrence's gorgeous face or Liam Hemsworth's fabulous rear-end.

 The husband and I wore all black!

I moved to Cali

Wednesday, January 22, 2014

I've moved to California for a new job. These days I've had more time in the morning and I've been apply make-up in the morning, which is kind of a big deal for me. 2013 was eventful because I learned how to apply makeup!

FYI I used predominately natural makeup lines (Like Mineral Fusion) from Whole Foods and Sephora.

From my Family to Yours

Please Excuse My Absence

Saturday, December 7, 2013

Please excuse my absence, I've been living life! I finished my Master's program. I traveled to multiple states. I went to the Hunger Games (I love YA novels) red carpet movie premiere. On top of marriage, babies and career. I've neglected my sisterlocked family, my apologies. I'll update the hair routine soon, and share more hair pictures from other naturalistas.

Oh Tynette is my forever hair and fashion crush. I love that her hair and fashion are uniquely her. Every time I stop by her tumblr, I am inspired to play with my own style and hair.

Coloring My Hair

Friday, September 20, 2013

My hair is naturally a brown and black stripped weirdness that I love and sometimes hate. Right now I'm craving a uniform dark black rich mop of hair again. So, I plan to color with nutratint again this weekend. Wish me luck!

Oh FYI, I have one lock in the very front corner of my hairline that has been going grey for years, I was thinking of embracing my natural Rogue (from Marvel's X-men) and discontinue coloring it. What do you think?
