Miss Jessie's Products

So I had a bad experience with another product in my hair so I did a co-wash with Lustrasilk Tea Tree Cholestrol 
Afterwards, I conditioned my locs with Miss Jessie's Super Sweetback Treatment
I absolutely LOVE the smell and it left my locs feeling softer than they've been in a long time!!! A+
Then for my retwist and pipe cleaner curls, I used the Miss Jessie's Baby Buttercreme
Can you say SOFT TOUCHABLE CURLS!!!!!!! I love how the Baby Buttercreme makes my locs feel. I will be using this product from now on :) A++ 

I will definitely be recommending the Miss Jessie's line to my friends and hair clients. 

Organic Root Stimulator Lock & Twist Gel

You know how it's said that not every hair product is for everyone,'s true.
I tried Organic Root Stimulator Lock & Twist Gel for my pipe cleaner curls

I must give it credit though, my curls were beautiful and tight. They bounced back when I pulled on them. But my scalp was very upset with me. My scalp started flaking and itching like crazy.
So I guess this is one product I will not be using for my self. I'm not saying don't use this product, I'm just stating that it's not a product for me.

Curls and Crochet hats

This is why I LOVE PIPE CLEANERS!!!! My curls last until I decide to wash them out. At night I pull my locs up into a ponytail and when I wake up, I take it down and shake my locs back and forth (LOL) and it still looks like fresh curls.
Stay tuned ladies! I will be taking orders for crocheted hats as well :)
Peace and Blessings xoxoxo

Pipe cleaner curls

Here is a picture of the pipe cleaners I used in my locs 

As promised  Here are the photos of my curls after I removed the pipe cleaners


As my curls start to drop (because I will be rocking them like this for a few days) I'll post more pics :)

Chocolashea Hair and Body Products

I have received and used some of her products. Here is my review:

Black Soap and the Vanilla Bean soap bars....O...M....G.....! The best soap I have used in YEARS!!!
I love the smell and all though the black soap dries my skin out a bit, it's awesome on my hair!  The vanilla bean soap which contains olive oil is definite for me! I love love love it!!!!

This Aloe-Vera Multipurpose Spritzer is awesome!!! Whenever my scalp feels dry or my locs start looking like they need somemoisture...SPRITZ SPRITZ SPRITZ, massage and keep it moving! It's so soothing on my scalp and my locs seem to love it! I also use it after I style my hair just to give my locs a little more shine.

Chocolate Whipped Hair Butter with Black Seed oil. If you love chocolate I definitely RECOMMEND this hair butter. I don't know how she does it but it smells JUST LIKE CHOCOLATE!!! I applied this hair butter on my locs before curling them with my pipe cleaners. I still haven't removed my pipe cleaners but my locs feel wonderful to the touch and look shiny! (making me love my hair color even more because it doesn't look dull anymore).

Peppermint Patty Hair Candy wow! It smells exactly like a peppermint patty! Now I'll be honest, I'm not a peppermint patty fan but I will be using this on my clients that do :) It's whipped butter just like the chocolate whipped hair butter so I know my clients will love it :)
Stay tuned for more products reviews :) I'm just getting started!!!
Peace and Blessings!

November Curls

Ok so yesterday 11/14/11 I decided to deep condition my locs which was much needed...I shampooed my hair with the natural black soap that I received from Chocolashea (which I love love love her products I must say!!! product review on Chocolashea coming soon....) and I concocted a deep conditioner which consist of, HPO Spa Treatment Hair Conditioner, and the HPO Butter Drops. I drenched my locs and covered them with a plastic shower cap and put a scarf on over it (now don't laugh at me) I wrapped a towel on top of the scarf and put a plastic bag (yes a plastic store bag) over all of about retaining the heat! LOL
Being that I had a braid client, I did all of this early in the day (about1030am), she came over about 2pm and didn't leave till about 6pm. I didn't wash the conditioner out of my hair until about 8pm so the conditioner was in my hair for pretty much the whole day. Once I rinsed it out, I pulled out my trusty pipe cleaners to start rolling...
To moisturize my locs, I used Chocolashea's Chocolate Whipped Hair Butter (which smells just like chocolate YUMMMMMM) and I added some more Butter Drops (I just love that stuff) and proceeded to spiral curl mylocs.
The pictures below is how I have my locs now and once I pull these pipe cleaners out, I will post pics of my final results :)

If you don't have the patience, DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME!!

I started interlocking my locs on Monday of this week and wasn't able to finish until Wednesday!!! It doesn't usually take me that long to do my own hair but I had a client come on Monday all the way from NY for me to do his locks (he was in desperate need of my services LOL) So I stopped doing my hair to do his and by the time I was done, I didn't even want to touch my own...I was sooooo tired!!! But between Tuesday and Wednesday I was able to FINALLY finish my locs YAAAAAAY ME!!! Here are before and after photos of my progress...
 Before starting the interlocking session
 Half way through the interlocking
 All done!!!!

If you do not have the patience to do your own interlocking please do not try this at home!!!!

I must say ladies and gentlemen..I am truly impressed!!! Being that the majority of the products I received can be used for hair AND body...that was a big plus in my book. So here we go......

The Hair and Body Shampoo is AWESOME! Smells like oranges (had me craving some in the shower) cleansed my locs and it didn't dry out my skin. A+

The Spa Hair Conditioner was a little watery to me (I guess I was used to those thick conditioners that you have to scoop out of the jars so I really wasn't expecting it to be pourable) but ladies let me tell softened my locs and again smelled like oranges LOL I love oranges by the way!!!

Twisty Locs has become my favorite to use to retwist my locs and for braids. I used it on my stepmom's hair and she LOVED IT! (so I guess I have to order her some too LOL) Seriously, applying it, you would think that it's greasy but it soaked into my locs and (I did my hair on Friday and today is Wednesday and they're STILL moisturized! With any other product, my locs would be dry by now SMH) I absolutely love it and will be using this product to twist my hair from now on!

HAPPY SCALP! HAPPY SCALP! Is my new best friend!!!!!!!!!!!
I used this on my stepmom (who needs to grow her hair out due to a bad perm made her hair fall out), on my brother (whose hair is extremely dry and brittle) and my brother's girlfriend (who has dry scalp) and it worked WONDERS!!!!! I haven't used it on myself as of yet but when I feel that my scalp is yearning for moisture which doesn't look like it's going to happen anytime soon...I will be applying the HAPPY SCALP to my scalp :)

BUTTER DROPS The bottle reads Just Like "Butter" and they are so right!!!!  Before washing my hair because I was running late to get to work, I put some in my locs just so that they wouldn't look so dry and when I tell you that it looked like I did my locs...I'm not lying! I love Butter Drops! I will using it from now on!
HAPPY PEOPLE ONLY (HPO) SPA TREATMENT has acquired a new client and I will suggest it to ALL of my clients, friends and family!

From Juicy Red Locs to Multi colored Locs

I had an experience with my hair color that changed completely. Before going to NYC to visit my family in 2010, my locs were a beautiful juicy red color.
But then me and the family went to the swimming pool at Rye Playland and the chlorine stripped away all of my red.

(from left to right) My son Dioni, myself, my daughter Tatyanna and my cousin Paloma
It was so much fun to be in the water teaching my kids how to swim and stay afloat LOL we had a blast! But then I went to the showers and saw that ALL of my red washed out 
I had to lighten my locs with powdered bleach before getting it to the red that I was looking to achieve. So when the red was stripped from mylocs, it turned to a reddish honey blonde color that I've grown to absolutely LOVE! Being that it was a semi-permanent hair dye, it didn't damage my locs but it did cause a few of my longer locs to break off (they were pretty thin due to the shells I use to wear on a few of my ends which caused those locs to thin out). I don't want to continue to stress my locs out adding additional color on top of what I had done so...this is what I'm left with:

I love my locs more than ever now and I decided to let the color grow out so I can have the 2 toned look (black/dark brown at the roots and the color towards the ends).
I just wanted to share with ya'll...if you're deciding on adding color to your natural tresses, please be careful getting in the pool LOL *LESSON LEARNED!!!*

Peace and Blessings!

Loc Treatment Feb. 2011

It's been a while since I put a deep conditioner in my locs...the time has come :)

I shampooed my locs with VO5 Kiwi Clarifying Shampoo and then did a quick ACV rinse (1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar 1/2 cup of water then rinsed out with just water).

Before starting the shampooing process I mixed my mother's favorite (wella) deep conditioner:
Cholesterol, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Mayo, 1 egg, cinnamon oil (this concoction has kept my hair strong and healthy since I was little, I don't know if it'll work for everyone...I'm just posting what works for my texture which is thick, dry and curly)
I started at my scalp and worked my way down to the tips. Then I put a plastic shower cap over my locs and tied a scarf on top of it. I tend to leave my conditioners on for quite some time, usually on the days that I clean the house, I put a deep conditioner in my hair and let it work while I'm working around the house. Since I'm not using a hairdryer or blow dryer for heat, the heat from the plastic and physical activity gives it just as much heat.  If you're trying this at home, you can leave it in your hair for anywhere between 30mins - 6hrs or so depending on your time schedule.
Rinse thoroughly and style as usual :)
Pics coming soon...stay tuned!

As promised here are some pics after I interlocked my new growth
