The other day I made some yummy popsicles using frozen strawberries, yogurt and frozen blueberries. The turnout was delicious. I was inspired by a recipe I found in InSyle Magazine and I’m happy I gave them a try. The recipe is really straight forward even though it calls for “layering”. The first few layers I took my time and let each semi-freeze, but as I got toward the end I quickly poured in what was left of the strawberry and yogurt . They didn’t come out as neat as the mag images, but I’m sure they were just as delicious! Ha.

So, I had an opportunity to try Shea Moisture’s Moisture Retention Shampoo for the first time and it was great!
As I mentioned in my latest haul video/post
, I had not shampooed my hair in 5 years!
It was due to my discomfort with the ingredients listed on most shampoo products and greatly due to my scalp itching like I had fleas whenever I did shampoo. I cannot say that shampooing will become a regular practice for me, but I will try again in the future since it was faster than having to make my clay wash. And after almost a week I have had zero itchiness. I shot a video detailing my conditioning process if you’d like to take a peek here.
Also, in the video
I share my recipe for my homemade deep conditioner:
1/2 Ripe Banana
2.5 Tbsp of Coconut Oil.
I slept with the conditioner over night and rinsed it out in the morning. I did not apply any additional product until I styled the following day, yet it felt super, sponge cake moist and soft!
For styling, I shot a video that I will share soon, but I used Shea Moisture’s Curl Enhancing Smoothie and Eco Styler Gel to set my waves. I had a chance to use that bonnet
I mentioned a few posts back as well! I LOOOOOOVE IT!
Hope you like!
Let me know if you decide to try the deep conditioning recipe!
