Hair Goals for 2013

I'm flying back to London tomorrow for christmas whoop whoop.... I will finally be able to try out, the Bee Mine products, that I ordered! I cannot wait, they better be good. Before I get into, how much I can't wait to be back at home, stuff my face, see my family... Let me share my hair goals with you.


1. Keep my hands out of my hair! 

2. Switch to organic products by 2014

3. Be more creative with hair styling 

4. Wash my hair more often

5. Cut down daily styling




Pretty short and sweet, what are your hair goals for 2013? Ps. don't you just love the photo!!!

Creme of Nature Professional Moisture Extreme Conditioner


                                                

Promises:
to soften & infuse moisture
Deep penetrating moisturizers hydrate hair 
Guards against dehydration
Replenishes Moisture 
Softens & Detangles 
Great for Relaxed Natural or Weaved hair

Is it just me, or have they basically stated it's ability to moisturise four times, in four different ways.

Directions: For best results start with Creme of Nature Shampoo. Apply treatment liberally throughout hair. Leave on for 5 minutes. Rinse and style.
 As a Deep Treatment: Apply liberally after shampooing. Cover hair with plastic cap and place client under a warm dryer for 10-15 minutes. Rinse. Proceed with desired style.

Ingredients: Ultra-Purified Water (Aqua)(Eau), Glycerin, Cetearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol, Dicetyldimonium Chloride,Lanolin Oil, PEG-12 Dimethicone,Amodimethicone, Phenyl Trimethicone, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Leaf Extract, Ocimum Basilicur (Basil) Extract, Polygala Senega Root Extract,Nasturtium Officinale (Watercress) Extract, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Leaf Extract, Thymus Vulgaris (Thyme) Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Seed Extract,Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Extract*, Symphytum Officinale Leaf Extract*, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Oil, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil, Citrus Aurantifolia (Lime) Oil, Mentha Viridis (Spearmint) Leaf Oil, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Theobroma Caco (Cocoa) Seed Butter,Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil,Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein,Hydrolyzed Wheat Starch, Panthenol,Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Isostearyl Ethylimidazolinium, Ethosulfate, Polyquaternium-10, Polyquaternium-32, Paraffinum Liquidum, Fragrance (Parfum)**, Citronellol, Coumarin, Hydroxycitronellal,Limonene,Linalool, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Methylparaben,Ethylparaben, Propylparaben, Butylparaben,Isobutylparaben, Phenoxyethanol, 


My Verdict:
The consistency is beyond WATERY. Does it provide extreme moisture?...Uh Noooo! One of the only things I can credit this conditioner on, is that it has great slip, my hair detangles with ease! This is the only reason why I haven't stopped using it. My main use is to deep condition, but I have to mix it with; EVOO, EVCO, honey, JBCO and peppermint oil. My deep condition mix is GREAT (Tony the Tiger voice), but why should I have to add to a conditioner? Even more so, why should I have to add to a conditioner that appears to have all the ingredients under the sun already? This conditioner certainly does not blow me away, but the  smell fragrance comes close to knocking me out.... it reminds me of the cream that comes with cheap perfume gift set. The price was £7.99 for 32 Oz (they didn't have a smaller size), decent price for the size, bad price for the product. As I can remix it to make a good deep conditioner, I won't throw it away. Would I purchase again? NO!

Will you Bee Mine?



I just ordered some new products :D. Four sample sizes from Bee Mine.

  • Bee Mine BEE-U-Ti-FUL Moisturizing Deep Conditioner
  • Bee Mine Luscious Balanced Cream Moisturiser Island Mango
  • Bee Mine Botanical Moisturising Shampoo
  • Bee Mine Strawberry Kiwi with Sulphur

I intentionally only wanted the moisturiser but for £5 delivery, I also wanted value for money! The range is natural and organic, which is a major selling point for me. One of my goals is to only use natural products by the time I'm fully natural.  I ordered them from www.britishcurlies.co.uk to my home in London. When I go home for Christmas, they'll be waiting for me :D. Once I try them, I will definitely let you guys know if it was lust or love.

Steady Growth



I'm currently 34 weeks post *dances*. I took the picture on the left earlier this week and was amazed at my progress. My hair may not be flying out my scalp at 1/2 an inch per month but it is definitely growing. Not long now before I'll be whipping my fro back and forth or before I'll be running my hands through my single strand twists, lool. As you can probably tell... I can't wait to be natural! At the start of my journey, my goal was to transition for 2 years, mainly because I didn't want short natural hair. Now, I'm almost 100% sure that I'm going to cut before then. I guess I'll know when I'm ready :D.
