Last month I had the pleasure of hanging out with talented Maria of The Maria Antoinette! Maria and I first “met” when she and LaQuisha of Corner Curl Girl over 3 years ago when they had a 30-day natural hair challenge. That’s the first of 2 challenges I’ve actually completed in the last few years by the way…LOL! I’ve had the chance to witness Maria’s business and following grow tremendously over the years and so happy to be able to call her a friend. Not only is she the bomb with hair and makeup, she is genuinely a nice person as well. Nothing worse than someone being pretty on the outside with a heart of stone!

And if you’re like me with purple hair, then those sulfates will not only strip the oils but also the color! Yea…ask me how I know! -_- lol

I usually just cowash my hair with regular conditioner so I was pretty excited to try out this conditioner. I recently got a sew-in and it was suggested by my friend Maria to just use conditioner to cleanse the hair. Here’s how I was looking before: [Read more…]
