My November Julep Maven Box

Hello Blog Lovers!! I wanted to share with you guys my Julep Maven Box for the month of November!! I’ve recently become a nail polish junkie. Every time I go into the store I pick up some type of nail polish. I usually stick to neutrals and pinks, but I’ve recently branched out to all of the colors.

Hair Product of the Week: Shea Moisture Organic Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque

 Hello Blog lovers!! I would like to say WELCOME to all of my new followers! To close out November (forgive my lack of posting, blame it on school) I would like to share with you guys another one of my favorite Shea Moisture products. I have been using this religiously since I purchased it and I can honestly say I LOVE IT. My hair loves it more!! This weeks HPOW is the Shea Moisture Organic Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque (with sea kelp, Argan oil, and Shea butter). I purchased this product along with the Shea Moisture Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo from Target for $10.  Check out the stats below:


 It smells great and it’s affordable. It contains No Parabens, No phtalates, No Paraffin, No Gluten, No Propylene Glycol, No Mineral Oil, No Synthetic Fragrance, No PABA, No Synthetic color, NO DEA, No Animal Ingredients, and most of all NO SULFATES!!  It does however contain some all natural organic ingredients such as Shea Butter, Sea Kelp, and my favorite Argan Oil! It’s purely organic and I have used it every single time I shampoo my hair (since purchasing it) and I love it!  I combine this conditioner with my Creme of Nature Argan Oil Conditioner (applying it first) and then I apply the Deep Treatment Masque, covering the entire head; apply my plastic bag and leave it on for as long as I desire to do so.  The directions suggest5-30 minutes then rinse. This conditioner can also be used as a frizz free moisturizing styling creme. I will definitely be repurchasing this product (once I run completely out) and continuing to use it on my hair.  This conditioner  alone will heal, grow, and strengthen the hair and leave it manageable and soft. 

You can find this product at other retailers such as: Wal-greens and Walmart. The Shea Moisture Line sales also bath, baby, and shaving products for men.


Deionized water, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Argan Oil, Vegetable Glycerin, Emulsifying Wax, Sea Kelp Extract, Panthenol (Vitamin B-5), Essential Oil blend, Avocado oil, Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Flower (and ) Lonicera Japonica (Japanese Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Hyssopus Officinalis Extract, Salvia Officinalis (Sage)Leaf and Equisetum Arvense Extract, Soybean Oil, Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Seed Oil

I love, love, LOVE, this product and I am a true fan.
