The first time I tried to use Nair, was in my very early twenties when my hair was coarser and everywhere. I knew the instructions said to leave the cream or lotion on for no longer than three minutes but, following the instructions all I’d have left is stinky hairy legs. I refused to try the cream again suffering with razors, hair bumps and discolorations until recently when I wanted to try alternative methods than an razor. I figured time has passed, let me try the lotion again. Even though many other brands were on the shelves, I was familiar with Nair and decided to try the long lost product again.Read More
The beauty in applying natural ingredients to your skin or ingesting into your body is when you are able to easily note what each of the ingredients are without the assistance of a Google lookup. There are products on the shelves that have scientific names for the ingredients used, but be careful because they may not all technically natural.

I almost did not become an ambassador for Saige and Ivy.

Ecoco Cannabis Sativa Oil has a very distinct aroma. After I shampoo, condition and moisturize the hair, I applied the oil directly on a clean scalp and remainder on the hair. It’s not a thick oil by any means, a little does go a long way. If you use this oil expecting a shine, don’t! This oil does not provide any shine, but clean and conditioned hair will feel good and look healthy and moisturized.Read More

When I’m low on my Vick’s, I’ll drop a few drops of peppermint or eucalyptus essential oils in my air diffuser and continue to get similar calming effects.Read More
I knew I wanted to continue to blog just to get the words of life from my head, but still in the beginning phase of what I should focus on. There’s so many topics to write about but my thoughts have mainly been about parenting, natural hair, product reviews, and general lifestyle content of a woman living in New York City.Read More
