Hair products I will be repurchasing in 2015 {Dr Fomsky}

January 4, 2015

Lavender Jamaican black castor oil. An oldie but a goodie. I prefer this to the regular plain Jamaican black castor oil because of the additional lavender. Jamaican black castor oil serum with argan oil. Also an oldie but a goodie. ๐Ÿ™‚ Lush Cosmetics Caca Noir henna. I have an unpublished post on how I used this and I promise it to publish it in a few days. This replaces my…


Hair products I am leaving behind in 2014 {Dr Fomsky }

January 3, 2015

Rhassoul clay: It was a nice product to experiment with but I am trying to streamline my regimen and it just doesn’t fit in. PLUS it is extremely hard to rinse out (in my opinion). Ayurvedic powders – brahmi and alma. The same thing I said about rhassoul clay applies to my ayurvedic products. Regular henna: My hair was becoming too red and I don’t have time to do henna…


Hair techniques I tested in 2014 {Dr Fomsky}

January 2, 2015

Blow drying: I enjoyed learning how to blow dry my hair using a method I saw on YouTube by Reniece TV. I will only do this occasionally because it takes me too long. Ain’t nobody got time for long styling!   Flat ironing: I did this once last year and it left my hair feeling smooth. I think I will do this a bit more often this year (with enough protection…


2014 in review {Dr Fomsky} – Battle of the moisturizers part 3 – The winner

December 31, 2014

Hi guys. 2014 has been a year of experimenting for me. Yeah experimenting. When I cut my hair last year, I felt so liberated and was no longer driven to grow my hair long. My main hair goal became healthy looking hair. This year, I have delved my hands in different techniques and products. Over my next few posts, I will be discussing the techniques and products I tried out…


Weight loss journey (weeks 8 – 12) #FitnessFriday

March 21, 2014

If you’ve been following my ‘side-tracked’ weight loss journey, you’ll know that I hurt my foot. It’s healed externally now but it’s still a little painful deep within (a knife fell on the top surface of my foot). I am trying my best to get back on track. One of the things I’m doing is to change my dietary habits. When I get busy with work, I can sometimes go…


2013 in review. Looking forward to 2014: hair goals and more!

January 2, 2014

2013 was a year of ups and downs for me. * I officially started my hair product store, Sizzelle. A big thank you to everyone for their patronage! * I started using onions and essential oils for my hair and I think I like using them (especially the onions). * I lost some weight at the beginning of the year to gain it all back and more at the end!…


Today is my birthday!

December 24, 2013

Yay! I’m older today! Old enough but not too old! ๐Ÿ™‚ I am sincerely grateful to the Almighty God and his son Jesus for all His blessings on my life!! For a pre-celebration, I went out yesterday to grab myself a new foundation (Estรฉe Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Makeup SPF 10) and 2 lipsticks (MAC Satin lipstick in Film Noir and Rebel shades). Me, wearing the Rebel shade….


Wash day 23rd November – I flat ironed my hair! (Roots only) {Dr Fomsky}

November 27, 2013

My relaxed hair wash day started on Saturday morning. I skipped doing my usual overnight pre-poo. I just was not in the mood the previous night. I jumped in the shower and did a first wash with Activilong exambusiness Smoothing Care Shampoo. I figured that since I had been moisturizing everyday for the last 2 weeks, my hair would have A LOT of buildup! So, I proceeded to clarify my…


Hair babble – not washed my hair in 2 weeks!

November 20, 2013

I can’t believe it’s been almost 2 weeks since I washed my hair! I’ve been too busy to go through the whole process of pre-poo, shampoo and deep condition so all I’ve done is moisturize and seal every day. Occasionally, I spray a little bit of Aphogee Green Tea Restructurizer on my ends before applying my moisturizer. Then I seal in the moisture. When my hair was longer, I usually…


Wash day 2nd November {Dr Fomsky}

November 2, 2013

1. I started my wash day on Friday evening with an overnight prepoo applying an oil mix ( lavender JBCO + rosemary oil + thyme oil + lavender oil + cedar wood oil) to my scalp. Next, I applied avocado oil to my entire hair. I made this oil mix because I think I have an area of my scalp that is thinning out and I hope this helps. Understanding…
