So lately, I've been experiencing more with natural and organic products just like everyone else it seems. I purchased the Weleda Rosemary Hair Oil about a month ago at Target as a conditiong treatment for my hair. I just put a few drops on my fingertips and massage the oil through my scalp. The oil has a nice light fragrance and the oil is not very heavy. It can also be used as an intensive deep condition treatment prior to shampoo. I've read that rosemary has some great benefits for hair so it was worth me purchasing. Do you incorporate essential oils in your hair care regimen? Which oils are your favorites? Do tell!

This will definitely be an eye opener for many especially in this day in age when the perception of beauty is so skewed.

When I first saw it, I though okay what kind of contraption is this but it's actually pretty nifty. It's called the Automatic Tweezer aka "the painless plucker" by Tweezerman. I bought it for $5.99 at TJMAXX. I wish I had a before and after of my eyebrows, but I don't- so just imagine a pair of horrid-looking eyebrows, bushy, etc and then picture a nicely arched eyebrow like this
Yep, that's pretty much the result I got. The automatic tweezer is pretty simple to use - just tweeze in the direction of hair growth. As for as it being painless, eh I mean you do feel the little pricks as you pull the hair but it's minimal. I'm glad I bought it, so I will definitely be doing my own eyebrows from now on. By the way, I also purchased the brow shaping scissors & brush too.

If you're hair is curly, kinky, or wavy like the picture above and you have difficulty selecting the right products for your hair type, here is a place for you, URBANBELLA. It's known as the curly, kinky, and wavy hair salon & apothecary in Atlanta, GA. Their focus is helping you achieve the curl pattern that you desire. For more info, go to www.urbanbella.com
There are a lot of ladies out there like myself that occasionally flat iron their hair. If you do, this is a product that you must have at arm's reach when doing so, it's Ellin Lavar's Thermist. It will protect your hair when using any heat styling tool, like flat irons, curling irons, or blow dryers. This product really does everything it claims it should. It always leaves my hair with volume, shiny, and protected. The funny thing is I've had this product for a long time (like a lot of products I have). Anyway, thought I'd share this info with you ladies. Hopefully once I have a camera I'll be able to post some pics of the after results. In the meantime, you'll just have to trust me. ;0)
For those of you that suffer from acne, there's a solution for you - Burt's Bees New Natural Acne Solutions line. It offers: a cleanser, scrub, moisturizing lotion, and blemish treatment.
