New Video: How to get SLEEK Straight Hair with NO DAMAGE + BLOOPERS

How to get SLEEK Straight Hair with NO DAMAGE

I think I’ve mentioned the time when I damaged my hair up to a point where it felt like straw.. No seriously though! It was a horror. But thankfully I recovered the damage which took me YEARS by the way. And now that I’ve recovered them I don’t want to damage them ever again… BUT I still want to style them with heat whenever I want.

Now ‘heat styling’ and ‘no damage’ is like complete opposite terms but I figured a way out. So good news for you guys because I am going to share my secrets that I’ve learnt over the years and ones that no one ever mentions for some reason.. It got me thinking am I the only one who’s been through this?

Anyway after years of trial and error I came up with this routine for super sleek straightened hair and I’ve been doing it for at least 4-5 months now and I haven’t seen any damage. So I hope this helps and please read the description bar for more details <3

As always, the products I’ve used will be listed below!

Products Used:

Remington Silk Ceramic straightener | http://bit.ly/1ZSUBcb

Beauty Standards Around The World | One Face 7 Countries

world-beauty-standards

This truly proves that beauty is a perception. What is considered beautiful in one country can be seen as a flaw in another. I found this video (linked below) on Wengie’s channel and it literally gave me a flash back of my life.

The same goes with people. Two people can find the same person really beautiful or really ugly. So if someone today thinks you’re ugly or ‘average’.. it shouldn’t affect your perception of yourself because that’s just ONE person’s opinion. There are 7 billion other people in this world. If you see yourself as God’s beautiful creation and believe it.. then no one has the power to bring you down by just saying a few bitter words.

Story Time – A Peek of my Teenage Life

When I was a teenager.. I used to get the most racist comments like ‘your skin is the color of shit’ etc.. and some people used to ask me ‘what’s that on your face’ (when I had some skin issues).. This seriously tore me from inside out and I used to think I was the ugliest girl in the world. Years passed and I was sick of thinking so bad about myself.. so I changed my perception. I literally sat down and decided to never look at myself in the mirror and say a negative word.. EVER!

As soon as I changed the way I see myself.. everyone else around me changed the way they see me as well. At this point I can say I get so many compliments from people every single day. I am not bragging here but I am trying to prove a point. I am a living proof who has gone through the experience of being the ugliest girl in school to the prettiest in college.. If someone told me when I was 15 that I was going to have a youtube channel and I would be an ‘Instagram model’ .. I would’ve laughed in their face. So that’s a small peek of my teenage years..

Please watch this video without any negativity and really grasp the message it’s trying to send <3 Thank you Wengie for this truly inspirational video x

New Video: How I Don’t get Whiteheads/Blackheads Anymore

You guys know how much I am into skin care so of course I had to share this video. A lot of people don’t know that you CAN prevent blackheads / whiteheads from appearing.

Normally what most of the people do is find a way to remove them. But if we PREVENT them in the first place there’s no removing them.
So here’s how I prevent whiteheads. I don’t get blackheads but you can prevent them the same way you prevent whiteheads.
I used to have oily and acne prone skin with clogged pores and whiteheads but now my skin is pretty clear and I rarely get whiteheads. My skin is not so oily either! So basically now I have clear, smooth, even toned skin.

Plus a lot of skin care specialists don’t tell you about this so I had to make a video on this for you guys 🙂

The products I recommend are quite inexpensive so everyone can buy them.
I use:
Alaffia’s African Black Soap: http://amzn.to/1O0NeNp
Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay: http://amzn.to/21WasbI

So check out my video below and let me know if you guys want me to target another specific skin issue and I shall make a video on that.
