Shea Moisture fans, run, don’t walk to CVS! This week they are having a B1G1 on Shea Moisture products.

Here’s my buy. I got both of these for 13.29. The item of equal or lesser value will be the one that’s free. CVS’s regularly priced items are more expensive but this is still a good deal. Also, don’t forget the Baby Shea Moisture products which will also be included in the sale. At my local CVS, prices ranged from 9.99 to 13.29.

I don’t too much get into the whole Jet Beauty thing anymore.

I’ll be honest: When I see women of color featured somewhere, they are 10 times more interesting to me if they have natural hair. I’m sure it’s just because I’m natural and I want to relate to the model/actress/etc.

Which is why I was excited to hear about Ms. Taonaya Fleury who is March 2014′s Jet Beauty.

Not only do I love her fro, but her body has that toned, yet feminine look that I aspire to have. I was curious what her hair and body care regimens were. She was kind enough to respond.

 

I’m not a fan of gyms, so I stay fit by doing activities I enjoy. I dance , swim, and take walks through scenic routes. As long as I’m enjoying the activity, it doesn’t feel like exercise.

I listen to my body and I don’t restrict what I eat, but I am mindful of how much I take in. If I’m less active, I won’t be scarfing down that extra order of onion rings.

I take a multi vitamin with antioxidants and fruit and vegetable extract to supplement what I don’t receive in my daily diet.

I’m not a really a stickler to anything but sleep. I have to get sleep in . I can tell the difference in my skin and even my hair when I don’t get 8 hours .

Skin and hair:

I use exfoliate daily and deep condition my hair weekly, sometimes twice a week as my hair dries out from traveling often.

I saturate my hair daily while in the shower. Slather on conditioner. And use a cleansing shampoo twice a month to clear the gunk from products and environment. I fill a spray bottle with leave in conditioner and various oils and spray after my showers. I’m a lazy hair girl, so I wash and go daily, detangle weekly. I’ve twisted my hair maybe
once in the last 8 months.

All in all, being happy and managing stress seems to be the best regime for saying fit and feeling my best.

All of that sounds pretty simple, which proves that you don’t need to do 50-11 things to have a great  body and/or have great hair! Thanks for reppin’ natural hair, Taonaya!

Meet the PuffCuff.

From the website:

The PuffCuff Hair Clamp (PC) was developed from a simple idea: Create a tool that not only makes it easy to achieve stylish looks without stressing your hair, but that is sanitary, durable and affordable. So, what does that look like? All the models you see here are everyday people with various hair types wearing the PuffCuff.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT

Let’s face it. Most accessories are for straight hair. Unlike coily hair, straight hair only comes in one type: straight. After years of searching for an accessory to accommodate thick textured hair, we created PuffCuff. It works with every type of coily hair, from kinky to curly, to help you create many beautiful hairstyles without cinching your hair to the smallest point of resistance and damaging it. Sound special? It is. You won’t find PuffCuff at your local big box store. This one-of-a-kind clamp is only available here and on Amazon.com.

It’s a very neat idea and definitely something that will appeal to a lot of people.  I’m not big into puffs these days but I’d still like to try it out! It basically looks like banana clip but round. Don’t act like you don’t remember banana clips, that was my go to accessory back in my high school relaxed-hair days.

Bonus: You can buy it with Amazon Prime. The price tag is 12 bucks. It’s available in several different sizes.

The questions I have are:

  • How sturdy is it?
  • How does it work on short hair?
  • Are the little teeth that hold the hair damaging?
  • How tight will it be?
