{Hair Product Review} Not Your Mother's Kinky Moves Curl Defining Hair Cream

Hey Couture Beauties! If you're following me on Instagram, then you know that I was rocking my Couture Lace Hair System with a deep wave texture last week. I changed the curl pattern with my curling wand and after a couple of days the waves looked limped (I think this may have been the result of the heat). I found a great product the other day called Not Your Mother's Kinky Moves Curl Defining Hair Cream that made my waves bounce back and look more defined. See below on how I used the defining cream.

If He Did It Before...He'll Do It Again

Hi Couture Beauties! I know it's been a while since I have posted anything...but I've been going through a major family crisis with my Mother fighting this nasty cancer battle. Those of you who may not know, my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer back in 2007 and it aggressively progressed to metastasized breast cancer. So that being said...yes we've been fighting this battle for quite a long time.

Currently my mother has been hospitalized for over a week now and my whole focus and attention has been with my mother. There was this song I heard this morning that made me so teary's called "If He Did It Before" by Tye Tribbett. I know God has been seriously working on healing my Mom, giving her the strength to fight all the battles that has come her way with the cancer. I know this time around God will not fail my Mom because as Tye said "If He Did It Before, He'll Do It Again". I dedicate this song to my Mother and all who are fighting the battle with cancer, autoimmune diseases, and any other illnesses.

Loving Yourself...

"How you treat yourself tells the world how you expect others to treat you" ~ Helen MacMillan
Losing your hair at any age can be  extremely devastating physically, emotionally, mentally, and socially. For me, I no longer felt feminine, sexy, or beautiful. It took a very long time (years) when I actually looked in the mirror at myself. It was a long journey that I traveled to find that self-love and still traveling that road. I will admit that the journey can be challenging and you will hit a few rocks and stumps in the road, but you have to keep going to discover that true love for yourself.
