E’TAE – THE NATURAL WAY!

Hair struggles, we all have them and its frustrating as hell! You buy this product to combat that product and you buy that product to combat this problem and the cycle goes on and on and on. Well today I want to let you know that you will never need to seek out the holy grail anymore – I may have your solution and its hella good – at least for me it is!

I’m puerto rican and I have the worst curly ass, hair girl issues ever… if its not frizz, its endless split ends, if its not that its trying to find the right products to help straighten my curly unruly hair!

(Hi, its me Alice! Check out my hair, super poofy)

You see, why its frustrating for me? This hair needs management and the right products asap! So about three years ago, I turned to a salon and tried the Keratin treatment, a cut, and a color for $150 and boy did I think that that was the “it” product. When I left that salon with my new hair all bouncy, shiny and looking fabulous I thought to myself – this is it my – must have hair care product. The treatment lasted about 1 year and a half before I needed another treatment and thats where my expensive hair issues came about.  I proceeded to contact 2 salons in my area and they both wanted between $150 and $200 dollars and that was just for the Keratin, no color or any extras! The extras would be much more and I really didn’t want to dish out more than $150. So I figured – why not do the Keratin treatment myself and save money? So I bought a treatment off of Amazon and now I understand why its so expensive to do at a salon. The process is extensive, lengthy, and tedious but it really is worth it – if and only if your either willing to dish out the money or do it for yourself. I chose the latter and thats where I’ve been with my hair care till a few weeks ago.

Keratin Treatment I’ve been using…

So about a week ago I saw a video of a girl getting her hair done with some natural products being applied to her hair. The hair stylist was explaining how the product worked and I was impressed by the whole process. When the hairstylist finished the girls hair, it was soft, shiny and bouncy and she had tight curled hair to begin with so I was shocked that any product could have those fabulous results. This impressed me and I decided to take the challenge and try it for myself. I knew that there was a money back guarantee so I was even more intrigued by it.

I love it

The companies name is E’tae Natural Products and apparently they’ve been in business for a while now but I have never heard of them before (not sure where I’ve been LOL). I placed my order and a few weeks later my products arrived and I tried them following the instructions to the letter. At first, I didn’t see a significant difference but two weeks later I redid the treatment and my hair was looking amazing. I couldn’t believe the shine, body, and softness i was experiencing! I was in love and I vowed to make this my new hair care product. I can’t believe I’ve been without it this long and I truly recommend it to all of my lovely readers. Theres a money back guarantee so if its not for you just return it but first try it twice and I bet that by the second time you will be impressed. If you love natural products this is for you. You can style your hair any way you want after using this… Be it curly, blowdried, flat ironed – its all up to you with this product!

Silk Conditioner… don”t forget to use your wide toothed comb with this gem!

The final step before you style … apply a small pea size of this and you’re hair will thank you! *Note – this product has a really funky smell to it, I believe it’s the clary sage thats giving it that strong smell. I’ve learned to mix it in with a coconut scented hair cream that I’ve been using for shine so it masks the strong smell that gives me a tiny headache sometimes. If you find the smell too much, mask it with your favorite hair product and voila, problem solved!

One last look at that texture and shine LOL….Here’s where you can get yours ….E’tae Natural products

 

SUMMERS LOCKS OF LOVE

8e24aa5ef3259a188f6452b22a5b421b

Summer has once again returned but in my neck of the woods it hasn’t returned with a vengeance. Thank God for that because it can get brutal in a quick minute and my hair surely doesn’t do well in humidity. But oh well, let me just enjoy the summer and keep it positive, Yes…Yes!

As you might have guessed by now today’s subject of my choice is hair. To be more specific hairstyles and color. I love it when people decide to explore and be daring with their locks of love. It just reminds me that we can all be unique and beautiful no matter what race or nationality you may be. Now that its summer that means that hair stylists have their work cut out for them as weddings, birthdays, baptisms, graduations and just the typical family reunion are put together. Its one heck of a good reason to make up a good excuse to get a fresh color and a cut.

With that in mind, lets just take a look at a few that I’ve archived just for this post…which one’s your favorite?

She’s rocking the long, shiny, beautiful hair that makes anyone want to go to a salon and get theirs done the same way!

So what’s your take on summer hair? Should you cut it short, long, color it, or just rock it natural? I believe in doing as you see fit. If you wanna have it long and curly by all means go for it! If you wanna rock a short, shaved, bob thats all amazing too. The most important thing to remember is that whatever haircut, style, or color you pick it’s what makes you unique and beautiful. You rock whatever your heart desires and do it like its no ones business. Feel confident about how you look and smile at all times. Make yourself happy and look gorgeous while you’re feeling yourself.

I really hope this has inspired you to at least look into getting into a salon this summer and I would love to know which one of these styles gave you an epiphany for a cut, color, or style that you like.

Stay Beautiful My Lovely Ladies!
