Beauty is More Than Skin Deep

Sorry I have been gone for so long

Many of the emails that I have received so far have a common commodity........usually the same questions are asked. I will try to answer those questions as best as I can:

I usually apply the texturizer for under 45 minutes depending on how much growth I have. On average, I try to apply a texturizer on a bimonthly basis, although there are occasions when I apply sooner because of too much growth.

As many of you know by now, my texturizer of choice is Silk Elements

Winter Styles desperately needed

Some days I feel like I'm on the verge of pulling a Britney Spears. Tired of pulling my hair back. Oh well

A conditioner that strengthens

I was away for a bit. It is now extremely cold and I am wishing I did not have to style my hair daily. I wish I had the patients for braids or some other style. I am currently in search for that perfecty leave in conditioner that strengthens my strands. If you have any suggestions please feel free to share.

Curls from my first roller

I did a quick roller set on Saturday evening. I was surprised how smooth the curls came out. Would love to try this out again, however it is torture trying to sleep with those darn rollers! My setting lotion was s-curl moisturizer with cantu strengthening for added shine.

My newest Addiction from Sebastian Collection

Happy Sunday. Hope you guys gave thanks this morning for the breath of life. Down to business, I am two months post texturizer, and you know what that means when you have 4zzzzzzzzzzzzz type hair. The new growth becomes a little poofy. I am torn between applying a texturizer or just do some tiny box braids. As of now, I have not decided since I do not like braids.

It was during this time of hair anguish that i stumble upon "Texturizer, body builder"from Sebastian Collection. According to the 8.5 floz, beautifully shaped bottle: It can be used to separate, sculpt and define. It goes further to say this product will help treat all hair styles to a new kind of fluid texture.

I picked up a bottle and as soon as I got home plastered some on my thick mane. I was SHOCKED! My hair made a complete 360. It became so flat, I was able to pull it back in a bun. The naked eyes would NEVER have been able to guess that I was 2 months post texturizer. Amazing. Just amazing.

By the way, this sebastian collection product has a liquid gel feel with the absent to flakiness or the hardness that most gels provide. I love, love, loved it. If you are looking for a way to tame those strands, definitely give it a try!

Prive Sample sale in New York this week

Today I was fortunate to visit the Prive sample in New York today. The sale is being held at the Chelsea Market located at 75 ninth Ave, corner of 15th street. This sample sale started today and will continue through Oct 5th. The hours of operation are: 10am to 7pm.

Some of the brands on sale include: Vince, Theory, 7 for all mankind, James Perse, Rock and Republic, etc. Did I mention that all items are priced at 35-80% off.
Unlike the Hermes jungle sale last week, this one was bearable and the items much more affordable. Rock and Repulic really caught my eyes but I have never paid over $100.00 for a blazer and today I was not willing. Several celeb type t-shirts from brands I cannot remember were are low as $15 and $25. I left with a dress and plan to check out a shimmery type Rock shirt that I may wear if I get to go to see Tina Turner at MSG.

Funny, I had never heard of vince or James Perse...

Oh well

Beauty and Politics

In recent times there have been such a whirlwind around Sarah Palin that I could not help but wonder the following:

If Sarah Palin had the looks of Janet Reno, would she have taken off like wild fire? If Hilary Clinton was a little younger and sexier, would she have cinched the Democratic nomination?
How much does looks play in getting elected today? Had Barack Obama have Al Sharpton's hair(ie relaxed hair), and the looks of Flava Flav, would he have advanced this far?

Sarah Palin is no doubt... hot, but what would be hotter if she stepped out of hiding and allow we the general public to know who the real baraccuda is. It is almost laughable and sad that the woman who could be VP in a few weeks is being shielded from all forms of media scrutiny. In case the Mc.Cain camp does not realize, this sends such a strong message to the undecideds.

What do you think?
