Color Care| A Simple Summer Hair Regimen

Color Care: Simple Summer Hair Regimen for Natural Hair #NaturallyStellar #StellarTips #Beauty

Color Care Cover Image

Since color treating my hair, my normal natural hair routine has required a complete overhaul.  I had to eliminate some products and add new ones that work best with color treated or damaged hair.  Although my hair isn’t damaged, color treated hair should be treated as such to avoid breakage and dullness of color.

Color Treated natural hair is by no means easy to maintain, but choosing the right…

Summer Style Report | Roller Sets

Summer Style Report | Roller Sets. The new protective style? #naturallystellar #hair #summer

Summer Style Report Cover

I have officially fallen in love again with roller sets!  Not just as a cute go-to style, but as my every day summer style of choice.  I’m finding that bi-weekly roller setting my hair and freely sleeping on my satin pillow case at night (which has always been a must) is really reviving my hair.  It’s vibrant, bouncy, shiny and growing like a weed!

At first I thought I was going to need to…

L'OrealVisibleLift BlurFoundation

I have to admit, I don’t normally wear drugstore/mass retail liquid foundations, because of horrible past experiences, whether they be breakouts, bad coverage, cakiness or an inability to match the colors to my African-American skin tone.  It’s one of those beauty items I would love to have if only I could find one suitable for me.

Well, I’ve recently been given an opportunity to try the new…

Blogiversary | Reflections and Changes

As my Blogiversary approaches

Blogiversary

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about my blog, its purpose and why I started down this road in the first place, 2 years ago.  At that time, I was 1 year deep into being a stay at home mom, after being laid off from my final  job in corporate america.  I say final, because if I can help it, I won’t ever go back to a regular 9 to 5, making somebody else rich.  I was happy being blessed to…

Before coming across the C-Slide Webcam Cover, I really didn’t pay much attention to my webcam lens when I wasn’t recording or video chatting.  I never really thought much about hackers or people having the ability to spy through my laptop camera.

If you haven’t seen the pics on social media yet, get ready… I recently decided to color my natural hair.  It’s something I had been thinking about for months and kept contemplating about exactly what color I wanted, how much of my hair I was gonna color and what kind of process I wanted to go for.  It’s been well over 10 years since I last chemically colored my hair, so this was not an easy…
