Quick Review: SAMY Get Curls: Curls Reactivator

Image

Always one to look for a new product to test on my curls, I purchased SAMY Get Curls: Curl Reactivator for about $5.00 after reading (mostly) good reviews about it. See, I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect curl product that is also reasonably priced. I’ve tried a lot of products and unfortunately, over the years, the products I loved most have been discontinued or the formula has been changed.

That has left me in quite a rut. I have weird curls. If I wash my hair and do nothing to it but let it air dry, I get some waves and a lot of poof. If I style if with a diffuser, I can manage to get beautiful curls with a lot of volume on days my hair wants to work with me. The thing is, some products will give the latter to me but leave me with a bunch of frizz which I then have to tame into decency. I’ve been hunting for my dream product:

Something that will help create and DEFINE curls without weighing it down yet preventing/taming frizz as well as having a decent hold throughout the day. Is that too much to ask for?!

I’ve been recommended a few products to try so far but if anyone reading has suggestions of their own please help this curly girl out!

BIRTHDAY TREATS & FRIENDS

ImageSo I come home after work and my friend is just sitting on my couch, eating noodles and watching anime like she owns the place.

Comfortable, much?

ImageI head upstairs and decide that I’m going to jump back into my workout routine. Getting back into the jist of things wasn’t as hard as I expected it to be. Actually, I enjoy working out but I wasn’t feeling all that well for the last few days.

I pulled out my ladybug yoga mat that I love so much and did some stretching. Then I watched my favorite workout videos on YouTube (I don’t know what dvd is worth buying so I stick to YouTube for now, lol) and started to pump it! XD

After the main workout I still had some energy left in me so I decided to look up some Zumba videos. Now I’m addicted!

I probably looked like this the whole time:

Not really. It was more like:

Boss status.

This is just disturbing.

Anyway, I did my thing and then I went downstairs to a nice surprise.

A friend of ours stopped by and brought belated birthday goodies!

Thanks @peepmykicks_!!

Can’t go wrong with that!

Then, another friend walks in and she plops this on the table:

How could you?

It’s safe to say, I didn’t eat any last night. Yeah, I’m proud.

BUT, that doesn’t mean tonight I won’t have a go.

Can’t wait to head home!

Oh, almost forgot. I got myself a nice little treat for my day of birth as well.

Perfectly Flawed Vitiligo Project

Hey gang!

I’ve been up since 8am today and if I’m up at that ungodly hour on a Saturday there had better be a damn good reason.

Well, today, there was such a reason. Today, I participated in a video shoot for a project called “Perfectly Flawed Project” that focuses on raising awareness about the skin condition vitiligo and also helping others embrace their uniqueness.

Image

I am so proud to be a part of this movement created by Telisha Gibson and I honestly hope I can get involved with more projects like these. The shoot was relaxed and comfortable. I walked in and was pleasantly surprised to see and meet two girls who I follow on instagram and also have vitiligo.

(then I asked for a photo like a normal person would)

It was a great experience to hear each person share their own stories on vitiligo from when they first noticed loss of pigmentation to how they coped and everything in between. Each person was strong and there was even a little 6yr old girl who was interviewed. She was such a cutie pie and also very brave to talk about how she felt when people teased her at school. Yet, when asked if she knew she was beautiful, she proudly responded with a “Yes”. :’)
