Leaving in Conditioner

Ever since we were little kids we have all been taught to wash out our shampoos and conditioners. It's true, but what about people that deliberately put conditioner on their hair, knowing they are not going to rinse it out? What do you know! I am now one of those people! I first heard about leaving on conditioner when I was watching a Baggying video on Youtube. (I will speak on Baggying in my next blog.) Now a days, I've been mixing oils like EVOO and Kemi Oyl to my Organix Coconut Milk, Suave Humectant, or my Cabellina horse conditioner, and just putting it in my hair. So far the Organix has performed the best. What I do is:  Spritz my hair with my water/glycerin mix, getting it nice and damp. Then I usually put my scalp concoction on (which at the moment is Mango Butter and different oils) and I massage that into my scalp. Then I put my conditioner on (that already has the oil mixed in), and I put LTR (Herbal Essences Long Term Relationship) and/or carrot oil and/or carrot creme on my ends. Then, when it's a little bit drier, I comb a littler or just gently pull my hair so that it won't be matted, and I put it in a high or low ponytail and I bun up! Now be sure that you don't let conditioner from a co wash sit on your scalp, because that just seems to cause itchiness. You have to make sure that the scalp isn't getting the conditioner, which is why I put my scalp mixture on first. But what doesn't work for me, may work for you, so keep that in mind. I do this usually in the day and at the time, I don't really know for sure if I'll co wash at night. I have done it before and after a co wash, and it seemed fine. I'm sure it'll be a dream before r after a shampoo. So far I only do this like twice a week, and twice a day for those two days. Get it? LOL, well until next time! And I should have a video of me doing this if I don't already. Just go to my Youtube using the link on the left. :D

Chardonnay of Love!!

I loooooove Chardonnay from the Love of Ray J! I think she was the realest girl on that show besides Danger and I think she is the realest chick on all these love shows besides Deelishis! I'm telling ya'll- there should be a Chardonnay of Love! I would watch that! I mean, come on, they gave Daisy her own show. I like Daisy and all, but they should give this girl a show. Lemme know if ya'll would watch that, and I will get together a letter for vh1. Also, I made a video of it on Youtube, so ya'll can watch that. It'll be up as soon as my lazy butt gets to it. LOL :D

Mott's New 100% Juices- Just eat the fruit!

When I first saw these juices, I was really excited, because, let's face it, there just aren't that many 100% juice drinks out there. So I bought the Fruit Medley kind and upon my first sip, I thought that this juice was great! Then I tasted a few more sips and realized that it started to dehydrate me IMMEDIATELY. I have been drinking strictly water and this super sugary drink was definitely doing a number on my mouth. I was so shocked to see that the 14 fl oz drink had a WHOPPING 54g of sugar!! I went home and saw that my brother's Monster Energy Drink had 16 fl oz for the same amount of sugar, and that's most likely because it's an energy drink. A 8 fl oz can of Pepsi has 28g of sugar! Now let's move on to the calories. This drink has 230 calories! I was shocked!!! I can have 2 cans of Pepsi and still not have as much calories as this drink! Now before anyone thinks I don't know anything about anything, this is just purely my opinion here. I know that fruit does have a lot of sugar and I haven't done that much research on how many calories are in fruit, but I honestly don't think these drinks are the way to go. I love the taste, I love the fact that there is no sugar added, and I love the fact that there is 100% juice. I'm not trying to say that this drink is a total bust, I'm just saying that I wouldn't want to drink that much calories and sugar, when I can eat a piece of fruit and down some water. Oh! and check out my resources:

Boys on the Brain!

OMGosh, I am so boy crazy!! Do you ever feel like that? Or girl crazy? I mean, I have boys on the brain 24/7. I am working on it though, by the grace of God. I am trying not to read into things too much, like the other day, this guy said I had a pretty smile. Not 5 minutes later was I thinking about what kind of husband he would be! Not even 5 minutes later ya'll! It's a mess... Well, anywho, I haven't been on here in almost a month, and I apologize for that, but I have just been working on my favoritest thing ever- ME! I have a lot of goals and I definitely will share those with you guys in my next blog. But everything is coming along nicely and I am sooo grateful. The Lord keeps blessing me, and I keep falling short of His glory. I have a lot of things I want to talk to ya'll about so please keep checking out my blog or follow it. I am definitely going to make it a point to be on here more often, so just keep checking me out. Ok, I post something again real soon. 

Where's all the boys?! Let me STOP.. ;D
