Baby Got Back: Venezuela’s Voluptuous Mannequins

Plastic-surgery is common in our society. Don’t like something about your body? Then go ahead, change it. I personally don’t have a problem with cosmetic alterations (doubt I’d ever get any,) but if you do it, don’t be ashamed of it. Share it, don’t hide it or cover it up with a BS lies and denials. But that seems to be a trend, especially amongst celebs…

But I digress. Plastic surgery is huge in our American culture, but did you know that in Venezuela many (perhaps a large selection of the population) women are getting surgical enhancements? I could say plastic surgery, but the level of work that is being done to some of the women is beyond going up a cup size or two. Some of the work is outrageously extreme!

♥ | Shea Moisture: Curl Enhancing Smoothie [Natural Hair Product Review]

Big Chop Jul 2012

Ever since going natural the last week of July 2012, I’ve spent the past 10 months discovering the quirks of my hair, the coils, and what my products my hair loves and hates. That moment when I first did the “big chop” I figured I’d have a lot of time to do the wash and go without worrying about too much product, but since (considering the growth) I realized that I need to find a good regime that works for me. And I have!

I’m not really an active member of the natural hair community, ya know all those bloggers and Youtubers that seem to only talk about their hair. Don’t get me wrong, it’s very helpful, but exhausting after awhile. But I digress. My point is, every now and then I’ll have a comment on products and like to share. For me, being natural is not apart of this big “movement.” I just got tired of perming my hair and styling it, so I cut it off. Simple, no biggie. So with that being in mind, here are my brief thoughts on Shea Moisture’s Curl Enhancing Smoothie.

My Um…Regime?

Normally I’d co-wash (or just wet it,) then apply some random olive oil leave-in conditioner, and top it off with Jamaican Black Castor Oil. But I found that my hair was having issues retaining moisture throughout the day. The olive oil leave-in wasn’t getting the job done, so after several hours of research and spending a good hour at Sally’s, I decided to finally give Shea Moisture’s Curl Enhancing Smoothie a shot. And guess what? It actually works!

Right out the shower, no product in hair. Length check!

My hair type is really coily and I have a lot of shrinkage, which explains why you can’t see most of my length. With that being said, I needed a product that could enhance my coils, keep them soft without frizz, and just hold in the moisture all day. And Shea’s Moisture’s products (especially the shampoo) tend to do that, so I knew I couldn’t go wrong with the Curl Enhancing Smoothie.

Work It Through Ya Hair

Not only does the Curl Enhancing Smoothie keep my hair nice and soft all day, but it smells pretty good and it’s packed with some organic ingredients that are beneficial to the naturally inclined.

Here are a few benefits of Shea Moisture: Curl Enhancing Smoothie

  • Coconut oil: Hydrates and protects hair from heat and chemical damage
  • Silk protein: Reduces breakage, strengthens hair, adds smoothness and silkiness
  • Neem oil: An age-old ayurvedic oil that strengthens hair and provides brilliant shine
  • No parabens, phthalates, paraffin, gluten, propylene glycol, mineral oil, synthetic fragrance, animal testing, PABA, synthetic color, DEA, or animal ingredients

Style Time!

 

So, my final thoughts? It’s a great product that is affordable and worth giving a shot. I’m a big fan of the Shea Moisture product line, so next time I go to Sally’s I might even check out some of their other products. Feel free to share your thoughts and regime below. Has it worked for you? :)
