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.

Love the results

So Soft and manageable

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!

This is the most requested product of the whole line…The Carmel Treatment

Carmelux Shampoo …so good for us curly haired girls!

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

 

COLOR: WINTER WHITE

2895dd3b9bf0a23f8834289d1a7b641c

In the mainstream world, the majority of fashion conscious individuals who are aware of trends will notice that winter is a good time to break out that white color of everything. If you would ask me today what my least favorite color in fashion would be, I will honestly tell you its white. All type and shades of white.. winter white, white white, soft white, eggshell white, bright white, Ultra  white — heck every white color there is out there. I love white in other areas like interior design, makeup, underwear, hair color etc – but white fashion wise, there is no way in hell you will catch me wearing white in any form unless its flattering to my figure. Lets face it, one reason I have a love/hate relationship with white is that white does not look amazing on every silhouette and mine is one of them. If you can pull if off, I say more power to ya! Congratulations..I envy you! White also looks amazing in other areas that are not fashion related which we will take a closer look at below too just for fun.

[All White Kitchen] – that chandelier is gorgeous!

While checking emails on my computer today I received an email sent to me from a blog subscriber that stated “white is the trending {it} color for this season.” This person is correct, if you notice it is really trending.

[Above: White made its strong presence among the actresses]

The red carpet was the best place to see this shade in all its glory and brightness. The actresses were looking stunning in the various designs in white. Another place where this clean cut color was noticed was in the Republican National Convention where Melania Trump wore her white Roksana Dress and it was stated that it wasn’t like her to wear such color. On the flip side, we also saw Hilary Clinton wear a white pantsuit at the Democratic National Convention. Hmm, see a trend here?

[Above: Good example of how white brings out the obvious in other colors]

So what give with white being a popular color this particular season?

Well, for starters – white is considered powerful, neutral, clean, pure and it matches or coordinates well with most other colors. Its a good reason to look at your wardrobe and start considering the possibilities.

My second reason that the color white for me is such a huge fashion faux pas is because I also know that my wardrobe wouldn’t be able to stay crispy white for very long. Klutz Central here….beware or walk on eggshells!

Good luck and wear “WHITE” to your hearts content! Someday, I will feel comfortable with this evasive “beautifully pure” color that is white but till then in fashion – I will avoid it like the plague – unless its a scarf, handbag or a hat then I will truly embrace it wholeheartedly. Hoping for the best of luck in every “WHITE” color love ..may the fashion angels be with you today and always!

This weekend has been amazing! I attended two fashion shows though the city that never sleeps was a literal icebox…..I mean it felt like someone really pissed mother nature off. Even though it was frigid that didn’t stop me from getting to anything fashion related.

Despite today’s weather I attended Authentic by John Ashford and Karo’s Swimwear Summer Collection. Karo’s swimwear line consists of chic bathing suits and jeweled monokinis with delicate embellishments that are the epitome of today’s modern woman. John Ashford brings you unique shoe designs that make woman beautiful and feel sexy with every step taken in his shoes. This show was truly amazing and if you weren’t there, you definitely missed out on an great, sexy, show! It was frigid outside but these models were holding their own with so much sexiness in the building. But let me not spoil the details for you, check out the sexy models in the pictures below!
