herbal tea

Final opinion

This shampoo has NO FOAM! So keep that in mind! It is a sulfate-free shampoo and can also be used for the treatment and prevention of head and skin disorders such as dandruff, eczema and itchiness. It cleans your scalp. The shampoo has a bit yellow. My hair felt clean and soft after using the shampoo.

I use this conditioner every other week for a deep conditioning treatment. When applying this conditioner you feel a tingle on your scalp, which gives this treatment a bonus. My hair is  fresh, feels soft and moisturized!

Final opinion

My curls are defined with this conditioner. I have to get used to the strong fragance. For a conditioner I don’t really like the smell.But maybe you like it. The conditioner is white and is as thick as the shampoo. This conditioner contains Shea Butter and pumpkin seed oil to nourishes your hair. After co-washing my hair I use coconut oil to seal my hair. It is a good detangler and also good twists and it gives my hair a shine.

Final opinion

Actually I use no gel for my hair, but I was curious. It is made from flaxseed and it contains no alcohol. I used it  with the hair​​butter to twist my hair. This gel is watery and has no strong hold. It does not do much for my hair. It gave my hair a slight crunch, but I would not use it easily.

Final opinion

It is a cream to stretch your hair. It would be an opposite effect on style or curly hair. For curly hair it would stretch your hair and with style hair  wavy hair. My hair shrinks so the effect of this product is minimum. The shape shifter defines my curls and gives my hair a shine.

Final opinion

This product can be used for a pre-poo treatment. First I divided my hair into four sections and applied the product to dry hair. Then I used a plastic wrap for my hair. It is a thick substance and has a strong fragance. My hair feels soft, but I will not easily use this product with the smell and the substance. I would rather use a pure oil.

Final opinion

This product gives my hair bling bling. The pomade is yellow and greasy but I like that it has a citrus fragrance. It has the best fragrance of the Original Moxie products. But I prefer to use jojoba or coconut oil to give my hair a shine.

Hairsongs in the mix by dj T.O.M.

Hi everyone,

As promised! It’s Friday so it’s time for a new blog! My hubby had this great idea to make a mix with songs about hair. He is working in the music bizz and he now knows a LOT about natural hair, co-washes, twistouts etc. So why not combine this! Isn’t that great!

The mix includes songs from Willow, Indie Arie, Missy Elliot, D’Angelo, Ying Yang Twins and more ;).

I LOVE it!

Listen to it! Share, like and enjoy!

Busy bee….

busy-womanHi everyone,

It’s been a while now that I publiced a blog on My Curly Mind…I am so, but sooooo busy with my new job, that I put blogging on the backburner.  I just want to share this with you guys.

I am working for this beautifull organisation, called Powerlady since three months. It’s providing young women to work on their social and working skills. Those women could not finish their study or couldn’t find a job because of their situation. With them and young professionals we are making our own magazine to inspire and motivate women! We are now busy with our last print edition, it’s available in May. Then we go further as a online Dutch empowering platform for women.  I am doing the PR and I am chief editor of the platform! I am so thankful that I am getting this oppurtunity to have this amazing job. Powerlady is all about getting chances, developing my skills as a manager and creativly for me.  This is the first time that I am producing a magazine and I have so much respect for people who produce a monthly magazine. It’s al lot of work. But it is so much fun and I meeting new people and I learn a lot.

Welcome to the adult life. I am not a student anymore. I am a hardworking woman now.  I have so much appreciation for women who have children, are married, maintain a household and a career. How do they do it? I need to find a balance to schedule my blog time, cause I really missed it. I am going to write once a week on a regular day.  It will be on Friday.

I will see you on Friday!

Happy Easter everybody!
