My Wash Day Experience With L'Oreal Paris Total Repair Extreme Reconstructing Shampoo




              My hair could not wait to be washed with shampoo again. My scalp was not itchy, but I could tell that I had products sitting on top of products on my hair. Between applying Carrot oil to my scalp and using the L.O.C Method, I knew that was bound to happen. But my L'OREAL Paris Total Repair Extreme kit took care of all the stickiness for me. I know you must be asking, "Is your hair damaged?" No, it is not! I just had my trim, and my hair is healthy.  But these are free samples, okay! What was I supposed to do? Seriously though, I don't think this kit is going to damage my hair. It can only make it better.

 #WashDayExperience
    The Wash Day Experience
  1. It may sound silly, but I used my Suave Naturals Tropical Coconut Conditioner to deep condition on dry hair. I applied pure coconut oil to my hair first, followed by the conditioner. I threw a plastic cap on, plus a.....I am not going to lie to you. I was too lazy to go upstairs. I used my son's Pajama pants to wrap my hair, and took a nap in the living room.
  2. When I woke up two hours later, I rinsed my hair and applied my watered down L'OREAL Reconstructing Shampoo to my scalp only. After I rinsed the shampoo out, I added the Reconstructing Conditioner. The third step was the Emergency Recovery Mask. I left it on for about 5 minutes, and rinsed. 
  3. I quickly did a light protein treatment on my ends only for about 10 minutes.
  4. After I towel dried my hair just to get rid of the excess water, I applied extra virgin olive to it to seal the moisture in. I added my leave-in a few minutes later, followed by my oil mix (Jojoba, Castor, Olive, and Coconut oils). I cannot wait to buy Avocado butter to replace these oils. 
  5. I did a few Senegalese twists using 100% Kanekalon Marley hair after my hair was completely dry.  

         I forgot to do my tea rinse again. I only remembered after I applied my Extra Virgin Olive Oil to my hair. I thought about doing an oil rinse so I could still have a chance to do the tea rinse, but I thought that would make the wash day too long. I am extremely happy with my little L'OREAL Paris Total Repair Extreme kit. My hair came alive.  It was strong, silky, and out of this world soft. My Aha moment was when I saw how soft my hair was after shampooing it.

What about you? Did you have a Aha moment with your hair?

Outfit Of The Week:: The Strappy Maxi Dress Plus Wedge Shoes


            Hello Darlings!! I am in a Maxi dress today. I love this dress because of the Accordion Pleats. They move with me when I move, or when the wind blows. I was looking for something to wear to church on Sunday, and it was my first choice. I paired it with a cardigan for my post on Lucky Mag. I avoid wearing strappy dresses or tops as much as possible because I was blessed with big arms. Now you understand why I had to cover up for church:-)  I thought the wedge shoes would go well with the dress since they are from the same color family; plus turquoise blue bangle bracelets to complement the color of the dress. Since my hair was already in Senegalese twists, I did a single French braid on one side and flipped the rest of the twists to the other side. This style elongated my face somehow, and I love it.

Fitness Friday:: Health Benefits Of Plain Greek Yogurt And How I Eat Mine


             It's hard enough for some of us to eat any kind of yogurt, but eating plain Greek yogurt is particularly hard for me. But because it is healthy, I try to buy some every time I go grocery shopping. I also buy honey or brown sugar, and flax seed powder to add to it. Greek yogurt has a creamier and thicker texture than regular yogurts. It has a richer flavor, too. It has 40% less sugar, 38% less sodium, and it is a good product to have around the house. It provides lots of benefits for your hair, skin, and your whole body. You can use it to cleanse your face and tighten your pores. It is very effective at getting rid of pimples. It can be used as a deep conditioner for your hair. And you can create countless recipes with plain Greek yogurt.

Health benefits of Greek Yogurt

1. Digestive Health

 2: Blood Pressure

 3: Weight Management

 4: Bone Health

5: Lactose Intolerance
 
         
Fitness Friday             I make yogurt part of my breakfast because I love to have lots of protein and fiber in the morning. I used to love granola in my yogurt, but I am not sure if it's because my digestive system changed
after I had my last baby, my body cannot process it anymore. I stay bloated for a long time after eating wheat and oats. My theory is probably accurate because my daughter came out allergic to these things. Now I use organic flax seed powder in my  Greek yogurt. It is gluten free, rich in fiber, protein, and omega-3. It is a good way to add a kick to the yogurt to help me stay fuller longer. The flax seed powder also helps with the thickness. I also add some honey to help out with the taste a little bit. Brown sugar is another good choice.  I add raisins and shredded almonds when I eat it as a snack, depending on how long I have until lunch time.
            If you've been having trouble eating creek yogurt because of the taste, these are some healthy ways to add flavor to it. 

How do you like your yogurt? Or do you even eat it?
