Homemade Remedies 


Below are a few Natural Remedies that I like to use.


Moisturizing Leave in conditioner:

What You Need:

  • Aloe Vera juice (1 cup)
  • Honey (2 tablespoon ) I skip this item in the winter
  • Castor oil (1 tablespoon)
  • Virgin Coconut oil (2 tablespoon)
  • Tea Tree Oil (4 drops)


Benefits: leaves hair moisturized and shiny. The aloe vera juice is very moisturizing. Honey is a natural humectant so it draws moisture from the air. Hence why I do not use honey in my leave-in during the dry weather.


Mix in a Spray bottle and enjoy!






DIY Deep conditioner or pre-poo (on dry hair):

What You Need:

  • Honey (2 teaspoon)
  • Virgin Olive oil / Ojon (1 teaspoon)
  • Tea Tree Oil  (3 drops)
  • Conditioner for slip (2 teaspoon)


Note: Deep conditioning with oils is better on dry hair. Remember from science class, oils sit on top of water. So using oils on wet hair won't do much deep penetration.


Massage the goodness into hair and scalp. Put cap on for 25 to 30 mins.









Eczema Hair&Body Treatment (and moisture sealant):

What You Need:

  • Aloe Vera gel
  • Virgin Coconut oil
  • Virgin Shea butter


Benefits: Aloe vera is very moisturizing and it soothes eczema breakouts as well as keep the skin moist. It does the same for hair. It moisturizes, smooth the cuticles which help to minimize frizz and keep the hair soft. Coconut oil penetrates and conditions the hair and skin while the shea butter seal everything in.


Natural Face mask

Natural Face Mask - using Bentonite Clay

What You Need:

  • 100% Bentonite Clay (I used Aztec Brand)
  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Honey


Benefit: Deep Cleans the pores of the skin and clears skin impurites. If you have eczema or any other skin condition, acne or just need to pamper the skin - then you should try this.

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs Hi Loves, I always get asked about how do I interlock my locs and the rotation I used - whether its 2-point or 4-point rotation. Some people also use the term 2-way or 4-way rotation. In the video below, I illustrate on my own locs, the difference between the two methods. you can then compare for yourself, if there is a difference between the two by looking at my locs. Do you interlock your locs? Share below which rotation do you use?

Dossier Perfume Review - Is It Worth It?

Have you heard about Dossier Perfume? They are a perfume brand that creates scents inspired by luxury brands for ONLY $29 - a fraction of the price.  Scents I Tried: Oriental 1 - inspired by YSL Black Opium Floral 3 - inspired by Chanel’s Chanel No. 5 Click on my link to shop: DOSSIER   Use GLAM10 for 10% off. I love y’all, save some coins.  How it works:   The way it works is that they send a small sample in every perfume box, that can be opened and tested before opening the big 50ml bottle. - If you don't want to keep the scents, all you have to do is return them within 30 days from receiving, and you will be charged absolutely nothing! - The returned bottles must be unsealed - that's why they include the sample :) Have you tried Dossier or interested in trying it out?
