Dry and Itchy scalp days are over

Hey you guys and welcome back to the Beauty Amateur.

I was lucky enough to be chosen to test out the Head and Shoulders Moisture care line from

I have always had scalp issues since I was young. I realized that I had dry scalp due to being African american and having naturally red hair.

Also , one of the cool aspects is that my boyfriend who is Caucasian suffers from flaky and dry scalp as well so we both got to try this out.

It is actually a god send. ( I know that sounds like high praise)  Realize that when you have been going through your whole life with heavily oiling your scalp and drinking all this water ( even though water is great for you) and nothing working, you begin to settle into the belief that you will have to deal with this problem for the rest of your life.

I will not gross you out with the before photos because I do not like the flakes( I really don't) but here is an after my first shampoo

No I am sure you can see some bits of white further back but that was what was left after shampooing with the moisture care 2 in 1

.I sometime flaked so bad I thought I had cradle cap or eczema of the scalp. I really could just pull it off  just so it would not show up every time I combed my hair. the first thing I noticed while shampooing was the tingle which I expected . After all, most shampoos that are made to take care of flaky or dry scalp has a bit of medicine to help with the issue. What I appreciated most about the 2 in 1 is the fact that is has vitamin E rich almond oil and Coconut essence ( both which are extremely great for hair). My scalp felt better right after the first use.

I then used the scalp soother. This has peppermint oil and vitamin e as well. My scalp felt refreshed. It was kinda of the same feeling when you chew peppermint gum or use peppermint toothpaste. Just felt really clean.

My boyfriend on the other hand had a bit of a different feeling. I am not tender headed meaning most things done to my scalp or hair doesn't cause me to shriek out in pain or have an adverse reaction. My boyfriend however is just a little bit tender headed so using the scalp soother after the Co wash did give him a little bit of a burning sensation.  Now before any freaks out , it only lasted a few seconds so I am under the belief it was because when your pores are open, anything can happen.

What we both noticed is that the flakes took about 2 weeks truly to come back and even then , they did not come back in full force. In fact, the more we use the shampoo, the less flakes we are seeing which is why I do enjoy the products so much.

I highly recommend this product for anyone with visible flakes and dry scalp. Also the scalp soother is great the use in between shampoos to help maintain.

That's all for now

Free Fiber One Cereals From BZZAGENT ( General Mills Cereal)

Hey Beauties.

I recently received Fiber One Cereal free from General Mills via BzzAgent. When I received the boxes, I was excited to try something new. I am usually eat Honeycomb, Life, Mini Wheats, Rice Krispies and Frosted Flakes. I am always willing to try something new. These cereals have 10g of protein  and have 20% of fiber. I do not have any digestive issues of which fiber is great for taking care of but I do feel lacking my protein intake.
Hello Cereals

The first flavor I tried was the Cranberry Almond. I am well versed in the Maple Brown sugar universe of flavor. Cranberry Almond is amazing! One of the more flavorful cereals I have had in while. I didn't feel like I was eating anything healthy. It just tasted very good.  It was  a filling breakfast and with a fast metabolism like mine, it takes a lot to keep me filled at least for 4 hours.

However, it was my first and last bowl. My boyfriend decided to try it and leave me with nothing. ( selfish ass)

But I asked him how it was since he claimed most it for himself. He said it was quite filling and he even had some as a snack after dinner. He enjoyed the flavor and did not know it was actually very healthy for him. He has had some digestive issues but during that time, he was feeling pretty good. That box lasted about a week.

The Maple Brown sugar flavor lasted a bit longer in the house because we are very accustom to that flavor. The Maple Brown was good and it last about a week and  half.

I will say that for those who are looking for a healthy cereal option , this is a great buy.  You  get your protein and fiber without  your taste buds crying out for flavor.

Disclosure: I received these General Mills Fiber One cereals free being a bzzagent.

BZZAGENT ON NEW BZZ- Schick Hydro Silk Sensitive care Razor

Hello Beauties. I recently received my Bzzagent package. It contains the Schick Hydro Silk Sensitive care razor.

as we all know and do, we let our legs in the winter get a nice reprieve from the spring and summer and sometimes fall shaving.

 After all most of us are sporting pants, sweats, jeans and our legs do not necessarily have to be smooth. ( I do not care if you have a mate or not, they just have to understand).

  My legs have a tendency to get real bushy. Though most people cannot tell because it is blond, I know its there. My boyfriend knows its there so I am looking forward to seeing how this schick razor will take care of my 3 foot 4 inches long stems. Yes I am hairy... I am human.

 Anyhoo, I cannot wait to show you all how this razor will hold up to me shaving. Hopefully, the razor will not get dull. ;-) I received this Item being a bzzagent. You can sign up at #GotItFree

2014 - Life's what you make it

Hey beauties. For those that are still here. Thanks for sticking around.

I hope 2013 was a good year for all of you. For me it was definitely more of a time for introspection and slow growth. But growth is growth.

Life is what you make it so do your best at everything. Obstacles are only put in your way to see how you will handle them.

Stay gorgeous beauties and welcome a new chapter of your life.

 Hey 2014!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great snack for my new healthy consciousness

I know you lovelies saw yesterday that  I have started my gym regimen. Well , My sister ( that's what I call her) has her own granola business. She makes the most delicious granola I have ever had.  The granola is handmade and made to your specifications.

Her site is You can choose your carats and gemstones. I personally love that she calls the ingredients that just so it feels more special.

I was lucky enough to get a bar named after me but I recommend you lovelies place an order and try for yourselves.

You will not regret it .
