Summer No Buy 2017: August Empties

Summer 2017 really flew by; I don’t even think I accomplished half of my summer bucket list. With all the natural hair and beauty collabs I’ve been doing, it’s surprising that I have any August empties. This month’s natural hair product highlight goes out to a Caribbean-owned business Kinky Tresses, With a background in Laboratory Science, Shawna Moses created Kinky Tresses out of the need to find products to keep...

Summer No Buy 2017: July Empties

It’s a little more than halfway through the summer and I’m sharing July empties for my summer no buy. Being a natural hair and beauty blogger is tough. Even though there are three of us on Type 4 Naturals, having different textures means sending products and reviews for three heads! For much of July, I used items from Jane Carter’s Curls to Go line for reviews and our Instagram take...

Summer No Buy 2017: June Empties

I’m taking a short break from sharing monthly empties for my annual #summernobuy. Attending events allow me to save trips to the beauty supply store, but sometimes it’s just too much. Some products don’t work while others just sit on the shelf. After giving and throwing things away through the year, each summer I do a “no buy” emptying as many products as possible. Not sure how to clear your...

Spring and Summer No Buy: May Empties

This post is not sponsored but contains some affiliate links Month two of my Spring and Summer no buy is over and I think this is the hardest one yet. One of my biggest challenges is being a Naturalicious and SheaBassador with Type 4 Naturals. I have video tutorials and reviews to do, so I’m using products that aren’t even on my list. You can see two of my last videos below:   In between video days, I...

Spring and Summer No Buy 2016

Between vacation, weekend trips, planning events and prepping for my 30th birthday, I’ve been a lot busier than normal. With everything going on, I still managed to get my hands on loads of hair products so I’m officially starting my Spring and Summer No Buy 2016 this April. The majority of the items received was being a guest at Texture on the Runway presented by Target during fashion week. Check out my video on...
