Grow Long Leave In

Last year, I decided to go for a new look so I got my hair bleached in hopes to get a brownish color since my hair is black and the only way I could get it light brown was by getting it bleached.

Since then my hair has not grown. It usually takes about a few months for it to grow after a haircut but oddly it hasn’t grown fully at all. I figured why not try a product that will help it grow healthier and faster.

While scrolling I found a product that may be a solution to help my hair grow.

Grow Long Caffeine Ginseng Rapid Grow Leave In

6.8 oz Item 2303496



Marc Anthony Grow Long Caffeine Ginseng Rapid Gro Leave In is a ultra-lightweight spray that hydrates dry, brittle hair. Rapid Gro is a hair leave in formulated with Caffeine, Ginseng and Vitamin E to restore strength while promote healthier hair growth. Apply to hair to combat breakage and split ends.

• Ultra-lightweight formula

• Promotes longer hair growth

• Adds suppleness to combat breakage and split ends for healthier growing hair

• Detangles and adds shine

It’s been about 2 weeks since I’ve used it but I only use it about 2-3 times a week after washing my hair. Now, you don’t want to wash your hair everyday and dry your hair follicles in doing so, therefore it’s better to wash hair every other day.

I love the smell of this product tho. After applying it, I blow dry hair and boy does it soften it leaving a pleasant smell.

Dollar Products- V05

Cruelty-free products can be found ANYWHERE. However, not every product will work properly especially if it’s from the dollar store. The reason these products are so affordable is because of the cheap ingredients inside. So I decided to put these to the test. Oh boy did my scalp began to itch after mid use. I noticed my hair started falling more than usual too. Although it did add volume after I blow dried my hair leaving it smooth, my scalp continued to itch.

The scalp dryness this shampoo had caused made me realize that no matter how expensive natural products are, they’re so much more worth the buy than a dollar shampoo/conditioner.

I had to get rid of the product without completely using it all.

Tjmaxx Finds

I’m so amazed at the makeup you can easily find at TJMAXX.

In my recent trip, I found something I never thought I’d find… KVD beauty products! Although KVD has a sale on their site as well as on, this by far is the cheapest by a few dollars which means you only pay for tax and no shipping. How amazing is that?!?! The Shade+Light eye palette is listed for $15 on while I purchased one here for $9.99… amazing right? KVD beauty product sold out pretty fast especially the lipsticks so I was bummed I didn’t find any left.

Get them at a TJMAXX near you while they last. An absolute great find.

AHAVA Hand cream for the winter

Now that winter is near, it’s time to get those hand creams out of your purse.

I got a sample of AHAVA mineral hand cream and must say I like the smell and the soft feeling of it after I apply to my hands. So I decided to do some research before using it.

Companies who support animal testing

I was a fan of Avon because they didn’t test on animals until I found out they continue to pay for cruel animal testing in order to sell in China. China is known for the cruel and cheap methods they use on animals whether if it’s for cosmetics, meat or “clothing”. By continuing to purchase from the companies listed below, you’re supporting cruel animal testing.

Make the right choice today and ban these cosmetics from your beauty drawer.

Kat Von D Black Friday Deals

There’s many reasons to like KVD Beauty. First and foremost, it’s cruelty-free and VEGAN. This year, when you purchase the new Everlasting lipstick edition 20% of the proceeds will go to Farm Sanctuary.

The colors include:





Each lipstick is named after an animal survivor. “Bruno,” the cow that Farm Sanctuary rehabilitated after he fell out of a speeding truck; “Julia” the pig, rescued from abuse at a factory farm; “Hilda” the sheep, who was the very first animal to arrive at Farm Sanctuary; and “Thumbelina” the chicken, saved from a trucking crate that tumbled onto the highway during transit.

Better yet if you spend $75 you get a free makeup bag with minis using the code BLACKFRIDAY.

Don’t miss this great deal while supporting a charity.
