Review: Chocolashea line ♥

I came across this WONDERFUL company called Chocolashea. I have always saw posts of these awesome products on my Facebook timeline and have been dyyyying to try it out. I grabbed a haircare sampler combo while there was a 25% off code being offered.
The haircare sampler combo includes the Aloe Spritz Healing Conditioner, African Black soap and Chocolate Whipped Hair Butter with Black Seed Oil.

First let me say her packaging was a-dor-able. I am obviously in love with anything cutesy and girly and this line has seriously got me sold!! The smells are sooooo yummy! My daughter and I couldn't get enough of it.

Let me start off with the Aloe Spritz Healing Conditioner. This is an Aloe-Vera multi-purpose spritzer.

The claim: Soothes dry and damaged hair and skin. Protects against the sun and will leave your hair and skin moisturized, super soft and refreshed and looking hydrated.

Ingredients: organic aloe-vera, glycerin, honey grape-seed oil, jojoba oil, vitamin e, essentail oil blend, natural fragrance

This spritz is aaaamazing. I have never used a daily spritz on Leelee before and always wanted to. This is perfect! After spritzing this on Leelee's hair it left it sooo moisturized right away! It also leaves the right shine to it. Plus, it smells just like a candy cane! The only thing I don't like about it is that it leaves my hands pretty sticky. It leaves her hair the same way if I apply too much but eventually her hair soaks it up and it disappears.

Here is a photo of her hair with just the spritz to moisturize.

Next up is the Chocolate Whipped Hair Butter with Black Seed oil.

Indulge your senses with Chocolashea's Peppermint Patty Hair Candy with a super fun natural aroma. This creamy nourishing Hair Butter is 100% natural super rich with hair loving vitamins and packed with Hair nourishing oils such as coconut oil, based with Pure African Shea, Organic Cocoa Butter, and black seed oil. Ingredients that stimulate the scalp and promote hair growth. Our soothing formula glides nicely on your hair leaving it soft, supple adding a natural shine and unique scent. A little goes a very long way. This Hair Butter is supper light for easy application and also excellent for dry sensitive skin and great for stretchmarks! 100% Natural!

The claim: Promotes healthy, strong and shiny growing hair.

Ingredients: signature natural butter blend, black seed oil, honey, vitamin e, coconut oil, grapeseed oil, jojoba oil, glycerin, essential oils.

This Butter contains omega-6 and omega-3 essential fatty acids, which help provide moisture for your hair and encourage hair growth and strength. Specifically, the gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) in black currant seed oil is an omega-6 acid that can help prevent hair thinning, splitting and dryness, according to Dr. Andrew Weil.

First off, this product smells like nutty chocolate! MMmmmmM good! This product is pretty thick and doesn't melt easily for us. I normally wouldnt use products like this but it did a really good job at moisturizing her hair and keeping it that way. It smells so delicious and works great as a combo with the spritz. Everytime Leelee sees me pulling it out to usr on her she goes, "yayy! Chocolate for m hair!"

Here is a pic using both the aloe vera spritz and whipped hair butter.
Along with my order, Ladrica was generous enough to include chocolate kiss lip balm, candied cakes cuticle and massage oil and

I love love love the candied cakes cuticle and massage oil! It smells like sugary sweet cookie and cakes! I have to hide it from Leelee or she will try to use it all! Lol i'm so sad though because I decided to carry it in my purse and half of the bottle (4oz!!) emptied out into my purse! Atleast, my purse smells good now :(

The chocolate lip balm was too dry for my lips and didn't do much moisturizing. The other cuticle was something I liked, too!

In all, I would HIGHLY recommend trying out this line. I absolutely am IN LOVE with the products (If you can't already tell lol) Def check out and "LIKE" their Facebook page as well. She is always offering randon discounts and codes so dont miss out!!

Btw, come back .....I don't know, tomorrow? For a surprise! (:

protective mohawk style

You already know how I looooooove mohawks. I really enjoyed this style. I was able to switch it up in many different ways. See below!!
here is the infamous braided braids (:
sectioned off "banded" style.
the back
something different I tried out. I flat twisted the whole thing and then pulled it up to form the "U" shape. I think it came out somewhat cute!
Side view.

Hope you all enjoyed the style! Until next time...(hopefully, it wont be too long)
