Ynobe Shop & Hair Perfection Product Review

I feel I have learned what my hair likes and does not like and am more selective on what new products I give a try. For me, it seems my hair prefers the more natural products or products that are loaded with great ingredients and less of the synthetic ones. When my fellow curl friend mentioned she was going to be selling the products that she makes and uses on herself, I was curious as she has gorgeous, healthy looking hair! When she told me about the ingredients I was sold and had to try them. This new line of products called Ynobe Shop by Ebony are now available on her Etsy shop. She has so far released a pre-poo,  the Silky Shea Cream, and the Hibiscus and Marshmallow Root Leave-in Conditioner. I did not order the pre-poo treatment because detangling prior to washing is an extra, and unnecessary step for me. Now, onto the reviews!

Struggling Pescatarian & Updates

Going pescatarian has not been as easy as I thought it would be! I ate a mostly vegetarian diet last week with the exception of a small serving of fish with my dinner last week. Prior to following a pescatarian diet, I did a three day detox of drinking only green juice. My results were great and I dropped 4 pounds! After this cleansing, I knew it was the perfect time to give pescatarian a try but there have been some problems along the way.

Wash Day epic fail product review!

Only for you, my readers, do I put Zoe (my hair) through such trauma! She fought back with me this past wash day! I was testing out an entire regime of new products and she really didn't like anything! My hair felt awful and the results I got the next morning were dismal. I'm not one to bash a product because everyone will have a different experience but if your hair is similar to mine or needs plenty of slip and moisture, this review could be useful for you. I'll keep it short and to the point and if you have any further questions, feel free to leave them below!

December Subscriptions

December was extra special for me because it was the first time I received 3 subscriptions in one month! There was much buzz about the 'holiday' editions of both the curlKit and curlBox and my inner product junkie got the better of me! I also received my ipsy glam bag with the perfect items for a holiday look. As stated in my new years update post, I will present what was included in the subscriptions and if I have used the products or have no plans too, they will be noted. Full reviews will be posted separately when I use a product. Now, lets begin with the holiday edition of the curlKit.

What was in my hair product review!

If you follow me on instagram, you have seen my side puff I wore on Christmas day and then my high puff I wore a week later! I used some new products to achieve these looks and I would like to give you my review on them. If you have used these products before please share your experience below in the comments!

Qhemet Biologics Amla & Olive Heavy Cream
-It softens & moisturizes extra dry, coarse hair. I have to agree, this product does just that and has staying power. Wash day for me are on Sundays so I moisturized my hair with the product and did the banding method with rubber bands to stretch my hair out. I kept my hair in the bands all day Monday and took them down that night. I then chunky two strand twisted my hair so it would have some definition to it for my side puff I wore that Tuesday. The consistency is very thick but smooth and creamy like a thick lotion. It can be applied to wet hair and is not too stiff. It has a nice light lemon scent to it and is not over powering. I can't say this product has any hold to it but it stands up to its claims of moisturizing extra dry,coarse hair.

Weight loss Journey Update and Tips

We are 3 days into the New Year and I'm sure there are many of you out there looking to improve your health and make this year better than the last. If you've been with me, you know I did a juice fast for 12 days in November and lost 15 pounds! I have stopped juicing due to fear of having another bad break out and laziness! I have however maintained the weight loss and have continued to slim down. 

Happy New Year plus product reviews!

First products up for review!
What a blessing it is to see another year!!! Thank you all for supporting this blog for the past few months it has truly been an honor and I hope I can continue to share meaningful posts that you all can find useful or inspiring!
This year, I am going to do any future "hair" product subscription updates differently. I will continue to post a picture of what is included in the month's box, kit, bag etc. but I won't do a review until I have used a significant amount of the items. That way, there will be no need to be redirected to the original post! I will continue to update you all on my fitness journey and will post more on that as well as any health related items I see that may be of some use to someone. Make sure you're following me on instagram (BesosFeron), I post daily updates on hair, health, life, and everything in between. Finally, I will begin to do more "body" related reviews. If you've been with me for a while, you know I am search for less toxic, harmful products to use so I will give my review on items that I'm trying out. Some items I've come across I wish I had read a review for but hey trial and error is fun.
