My New 'Do'

This post is just to assist the numerous ladies out there asking about my hair. I purchase all my 5A virgin Remy hair from Marie of Magnific Hair. What I appreciate is her commitment to the quality of her products. In addition to shopping around for the most reliable suppliers, she puts initial shipments through rigorous testing - microwaves them and all. As if that isn't enough, Marie also recommends the best hair type to suit your hair and lifestyle. I like low maintenance hair so I tend to get curl patterns. Flexi rods? #aintnobodygottimefodat These also blend best with my hair which is dry curled.

Indian Curly

My first order was Indian Curly in various lengths; this was a special order since I needed I tips to get my hair fusioned. The quality was excellent. I always tell the story of how I feel into the sea trying to board a water sport vessel and after the whip lashing ride I rejoined the cruise and this hair dried with no problems. No tangling, no brittleness, naffin! I deep conditioned it the next day. Yes, not that evening...the next day; and still no problems.

Brazillian Loose Curly

Now for this bombshell hair I'm currently wearing. I told Marie I wanted something different to the extremely long hair you're seeing everywhere and I also wanted a colour. I had seen a MAC Artist I talk to regularly with a beautiful cherry cola colour and wanted my hair done like that. Marie suggested the Brazilian loose curly in 10 and 14 inches and said she would organise getting it coloured by a hairdresser she knows. When I received the hair I noticed that it wasn't only cherry cola coloured but ombred. Sweeeeeet. Obviously the bleaching and colouring process means the hair is no longer virgin but I have still experienced no problems with the hair.

One recommendation is that you seal the wefts of your weave. This minimises shedding dramatically. Neither of the "units" I have used were sealed but the shedding I experienced was minimal. Now a lot of persons are selling hair in Barbados so I would encourage you to ask around to get a better knowledge of customers' experiences. Marie is not the cheapest or the most expensive hair retailer but so far for me she's the best.

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.

Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

From the box: "Deeply exfoliates the dull surface of the skin for clarity, radiance, and younger-looking skin. Visibly brightens the appearance of age spots and discolorations. Instantly plumps the look of fine lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes*

*Clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes. Results obtained via profilometry analysis.

It's A Dupe!

Long time no dupe.

Corny? I know. I try.

Faithful readers would have seen me rave about the Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector, a.k.a Face Cement, numerous times. Well, we have a dupe: The Make Up For Ever (MUFE) Step 1 Skin Equalizer Mattifying Primer. I knew it instantly. So instantly that I've used the MUFE twice and decided that it's ridiculous to keep both since they are the same.

You can read all about the Becca primer in the link above so I'm just going to talk about the MUFE version here.
