2 for 1: OOTD + Black Tea Rinse!

OOTD (Outfit Of The Day)

This morning when I woke up I had already had set in my mind that I wanted to wear my high waisted black skinny leg pants! Although I knew I was going to wear the pants, I had no clue what top I would wear. I tried on at least 3 to 4 shirts and none of them looked right. But then I tried on this yellow ruffled stretchy top and I knew that it was the one. It is very colorful and that was exactly what I was looking for!

Top:Arden B./Pants:XX21 High Waist/Sweater:The Limited/Shoes:BCBG/Belt:came with another set of pants/Tank:XX21/Earrings:XX21/Bracelet:Charlotte Russe/Watch:D&G/Sunnies:XX21

I am so excited that tomorrow is Friday! Only 6 more work days and then I am OFF for an entire WEEK! It is going to feel so good to relax and enjoy that time off! I have already started making plans for what I plan to do on my days off before I head out of town! I would share it with you now but then when those days come aroudn I may not have to much to say lol. So you will just have to be patient!

So tomorrow will be my 1 month anniversary for my blog!!!! I’m so excited and I want to thank each and everyone you all for your support! I wouldn’t have been able to make it this far without you all and I am very grateful!

Black Tea Rinse

As an African-American woman I know the importance of taking special care of my hair else it will become damaged. Well even though I understand the importance that doesn’t mean that I’ve always taken good care of my hair. I have put highlights and permanent color in my hair a couple of times and I failed to keep up with the treatments! Well my hair started to fall out and I was forced to cut my hair because I refused to walk around with dry and brittle ends.

My hair became damaged about 3 years ago, so ever since then I’ve been trying to get back to my original texture back and grow my hair back long and healthy! Ladies and gentlemen it has NOT been easy! But now my hair is FINALLY growing back and becoming more healthy and easier to maintain. I have been trying different hair care products to figure out which ones work well with my hair. Right now I am using Proclaim Olive glossing shampoo and conditioner products which are sold at Sally’s. While my hair is damp I use Ion’s heat protector cream. Once my hair is dry I apply Organix smoothing shea butter liquid glad serum to my hair. These products work pretty well but I need some other products that will help strengthen my hair and stop my hair from shedding so badly. It is ridiculous because I brush my hair and all these strands of hair are sitting on shoulders SMH! Well I have been watching Shana Green’s (The woman who is a finalist in the “Win your own product line”) hair care/make up videos on youtube and I came across her talking about how she did the black tea rinse challenge! After I watched the video I knew that I wanted to do it because not only was Shana rinsing her hair with black tea but others were partaking in the idea as well and seeing results! I went to the store this afternoon and bought all my materials needed for this experiment! I am getting a relaxer tomorrow so that is when I will do the black tea rinse. I will be sure to update you on how everything is going. Wish me luck!

Materials needed are Black Tea bags (any brand is fine), a bowl, water, hair color applicator,a shower cap, and a deep conditioner!! I would go into explaining everything but Shana gives specific instructions in her video. Take a look! *The videos are there…it may take a moment to show up!

Well folks I am exhausted and ready for bed! Tomorrow is Friday! Whoop! Whoop! I hope that you all had a wonderful day and thanks for reading! ✌
