Makeover's and Facials

I absolutely love pampering people. thats why i decided to make a living doing it. Treating someones skin is a pleasure for me because i know the result will be rewarding. Someone will have a chance to feel better about the way they look and in turn feel better about themselves.

One of my most frequent clients!

Its also very important to pamper the male customers. You will be quite surprised about how many men would like to look and feel a difference in their skin but don't know where to begin. A simple facial scrub before their shave and moisturizing cream or gel after can make all the difference!

I love to use my friends for test shoots. They usually lt me get away with whatever i want. Maybe because i always provide wine. But my friends trust me. They believe in my work and love to play with makeup almost just as much as me.

Shea Moisture hair care regimen!

I love Shea Moisture Products! I just recently purchased a bunch of products from them that are geared to treat my hair specifically and I would love to share it with everyone cause I definitely know how hard it is to find good products and drop money blindly! I hope this helps!

 Let me start with the Shampoo, since this is the first step anyway. This product is very thick, lathering and moisturizing. I have never found a shampoo that has actually moisturized my curls! It smells so good after wards leaving a smooth finish. It has a beautiful   pearly look and soft feel to the touch.

*Key Ingredients:
  • Sea kelp - Trace minerals detoxify hair follicles of impurities and residue.
  • Argan Oil - Restores shine and rebuilds hair elasticity.
  • Shea Butter - Deeply moisturizes and repairs damages to hair and scalp.

The Restorative conditioner is a perfect balance after the shampoo. You never want that over moisturized feeling cause most likely you will have thick unmovable hair in a few days from the buildup!
Its light but still very moisturizing. I like to concentrate it on my ends.

*Key ingredients are the same as the shampoo :)

I love love love the Curl & Style Conditioning Milk! It smells like coconut which is a huge plus for me and it makes my hair feel textured, moisturized and softer then ever. I have damaged hair at the moment and this is reviving it with every use. My curls are not frizzy at all. In fact they are bouncy again with lots of shine! product. People have told me that my hair looks healthy!

                                                                                Key Ingredients:
  • Coconut Oil - Hydrates and protects hair from heat and chemical damage.
  • Silk Protein - Reduces breakage, strengthens hair, adds smoothness and silkiness.
  • Neem Oil - An age old ayurvedic oil that strengthens hair and provides brilliant shine.

I'm a fan of the texture this leaves my hair. I have left this product on my head for a whole day outside. It Isn't a thick cream on your hair. Its a coat of  product which is good cause you wont use it up as fast. The smell is mild and the texture is silky and creamy with a mild scent. I have not used it long enough to tell you the long term effects, but I will update in a few months!

*Key Ingredients:

  • Baobab Oil - Contains vitamins A, C, E and F to fortify and strengthen hair.
  • Yucca - Thickens hair and helps to prevent hair loss.
  • Biotin - A powerful B vitamin that strengthens the hair follicle. 

These Products DO NOT CONTAIN ANY:

You can buy these product @ Target

***I have used these products for about two weeks and my hair stopped falling out in the shower and I see a lot less hair left on my brush! They are the only products that touch my hair so I can see how fast my hair can grow. I hope this helped and I hope they work for you like they are for me!
