Project Healthy, Kardashian Hair

A few weeks ago before I started school again, I decided cut my hair in attempt to get rid of all my split ends and make my hair really healthy. Naturally, my hair is curly but I like the more "curled/wavy look". I have really long hair already, but I also wanted to try out clip in hair extensions for the first time too. As you may know, I love the Kardashian sisters and I've always wanted their beautiful hair.

This is a picture of my hair without the extensions/after the cut:
In my mission for healthy hair I've also picked up a few products. The Healthy Sexy Hair Products were on sale for 2 for $5.. which is a complete steal! (This was because of old packaging). I also picked up a few CHI products because I saw them at TJ Maxx for a lot cheaper than beauty shops.

Healthy Sexy Hair: Soy Milk Moisture Shampoo, Soy Milk Conditioner, Soy Salvation Deep Treatment, Soy Tri-Wheat Leave in Conditioner, and Soya Want Flat Hair Hairspray.
CHI: Iron Guard, Infra Shampoo and Infra Treatment.

Overall these products were really good and for the most part I will be repurchasing. They make my hair incredibly soft and shiny. My ends also are a lot softer than they normally would be after using heat so frequently. The only problem I have with these products is that the leave-in conditioner tends to make my hair a little flat if I go over-board.

my new HG of shaving.

Hey everyone! Sorry I haven't been updating, I have just recently moved back into college to start my second year, so things have been kinda hectic! I also forgot my camera cord, therefore I can't upload any pictures unless I use the photo booth on my macbook. Thank you to all my new followers! :)

Okay so, I bet most of you are wondering why I'm posting about shaving.... its because I had to let you guys in on this new product I purchased! 

(I apologize for the poor image quality, this is using my photo booth.)

Every morning I have been shaving my legs using these 2 products (along with moisturizer afterwards), and my boyfriend and friends have made comments about how smooth my legs feel! I sometimes get razor burn, but haven't at all since using these products.
  • First, is the Venus Spa Breeze razor. Which I believe can be purchased at most drugstores. I'm not sure how much they are there because I got my package at Costco's (warehouse/wholesale type store) and bought around 20, yes 20 cartridges for $24! Usually I use men's razors but I really like that this razor has a two moisturizing strip built in. The only complaint I have is that the strips do run out before the razor is dull, but it most definitely can be used without the added strips.
  • Now, to the product I'm most excited about. The Evolution of Smooth Shave Cream in Vanilla Bliss. I have always wanted to try out their products, and when I found this in Target I chose it over a normal shaving gel. It says to shave either wet or dry, and I have only tried this in the shower but I love it! I love the fact that it is a cream, which leaves my skin feeling soft, and smelling like vanilla!
At my Target the shaving cream was around $4.99? (Kind of expensive but believe me, you only need two pumps!) and they only had 2 types when I went. BUT you also can check out the 5 other fragrances here The Evolution of Smooth (I can't wait to try the Island Blue!)

What shaving products do you girls use?!
