Product Review: Cantu Wave Whip Mousse

For The Curls, Kinks & Freaks

To all my Naturalistas, this review is for YOU

So guys, I have been natural for going on 6 years now and let me say finding products that work for my super dry 4b hair has been extremely hard. BUT, I have stumbled across a gem for my natural sisters searching high and low for a great foam when doing protective styling. Oh, and let me say it is very inexpensive for sister’s balling on a budget.

I am sure we have all heard of the Cantu line which has truly evolved over the years but ladies this product has become my all-time favorite. The Cantu Wave Whip Curling Mousse is literally the clouds of heaven stuffed into a foam pump bottle and I am not exaggerating. I used this product doing a perm rod set, and if you have done a perm rod set before you know two things. 1) Those little rods feel like you are sleeping on all of life’s trials and tribulations and 2) finding a foam that does not make your hair feel like crunchy Cheetos, sometimes seems impossible but today I am here to change your life, and hair.

When I first applied the product on freshly washed hair I instantly felt that my hair did not dry out and surprisingly my kinks and coils were very defined. I must say this is vitally important, especially when protective styling. Always, pay attention to your hair and how it reacts to certain products and styles. Yes, all our hair types were made beautiful but the properties and demands for each type will always be different. No matter the productive style, if the product you are lathering your hair with does not moisturize your hair, nine times out of ten it is not made for your hair type. So please remember, sometimes it is okay to disregard the “for all hair types” label; it could end up being the worst thing possible for your lovely tresses. After applying the product to my hair, my curls were still soft and tangle free. This helped tremendously when rolling my hair. It felt as if my hair just effortless wrapped around the rollers, which gave them a smooth appearance. Now, I know this is the expectation of every foam/mousse when styling this way BUT you guys have not met the unruly child I call my hair. Do not get me wrong, I love the non-cooperative ends of my hair, however, this time she finally met her match.

Diani 1: Hair 1,863

After the dreadful night of searching for a way to sleep comfortably on my face, I have to say the end result was worth it. When I removed the perm rods from my hair not only did it pull apart without sounding like I was balling up a chip bag, the amount of body I had was amazing. My hair was soft, bouncy, and full of luster. Lastly, the style held up for about a week… and we all know just getting second-day hair is a blessing.

I highly recommend this product to anyone who wants to try a roller set (do not be like me, choose softer rollers), I promise it is worth the 6 bucks you will pay.

You ladies are awesome,

(P.S: A picture of my hair will be below)

Love you much,

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
