Summer Beauty Essentials

Summer does something to me…I can’t explain it. Needless to say it’s my favourite season, and guess what… the best of summer is still yet to come! Here are my summer beauty essentials for 2017.

I like to keep things fairly simple in the summer. Not a lot of makeup, no heat on my hair…no fuss. I’ve put together a little list of some of my must haves during the summer season. Be sure to watch the video below, I go into much more detail and I show you how some of the products look on my hair.

    Hi Nneka it is great to hear from you I was wondering where you went and run into your youtube thank you for all your tips. I just want to tell you about if you are interested some hair products. I do have very thick and curly hair also about 5 years a go I started to use tea tear oil on my scalp my hair started to grow very quick and get thicker. Not organic one . You can get it from African hair product store or you can use hair grow oil with tea tree oil . It is the actual liquid oil. If you have face book I will send you this video an Ethiopian girl I know she did real good video about. Coconut oil, rosemary oil, tea tree oil & Castro oil with tea tree & rosemary are good for hair grow. We should only apply oil on our scalp. Stay blessed.
