On to our Review

Product Description
Snapaholics is a hair accessory company that sells a variety of different hair related items, mainly for children.

*Speedy shipping
*Very friendly and professional customer service
*The accessories we received were all of good quality
*Snapaholics has a nice variety of accessories that arent found commonly

*When i received the package the box of rubberbands was opened all over the box (probably caused in shipping)
*Id like to see a frequently updated website with more to offer and maybe boy items or hair products too

My Feelings:
I am overall very happy with everything i received.  I love when i can come across unique hair accessories and I'm also a big fan of bobbles, always have been.  I had a great customer service experience with Kathleen and i could definitely recommend Snapaholics. My favorite item were the square beads and the Diva liked these especially. The only thing i would suggest is that the size of the items in diameters and such were listed along with the item so that one wouldn't have to ask per item, this question. Shipping was very fast and i look forward to doing business with Snapaholics again! I'm excited for the new products that will be coming in soon at Snapaholics too.

Here are some hairstyles I've created using the items i chose from Snapaholics.com...

We want to thank Kathleen from Snapaholics for blessing us with this amazing package of goodies and for coming on board as our newest sponsor!  We are excited for this opportunity and  look forward to more  styling with Snapaholics in the near future.

God Bless And Happy Styling...

Cute School Hair Style for Girls- Faux Hawk and Natural Curls

This is a style that we did for the Divas first day of school this year. It is a combination style including a Half- Faux Hawk with Cornrows, Natural Curls and Faux Cornrows.  This type of style is a versatile style that can be transformed over a week or so time frame. I'm playing catch up on my posts that I've had piling up so i do not have the products i used jotted down for this style. So if nothing else here is my hair-spiration which took about an hour to do (parting occupied most of the time).

Alot of people have a hard time comprehending how to part for a faux hawk but in reality there isnt a set way to do these and thats the fun aspect of it because you can be creative and make your parts any way youd like. I usually split the hair in two parts straight down the middle of her head and i clip the one side off then i work on the other braiding or twisting toward the mid line.  The advice i can give is to "pre-plan" as with any style and if you have to draw it out even on paper before you start parting it can help you get the mental picture better.  Sometimes as i braid i find myself creating a new part or adjusting my parting as i go deviating from my original plan.  I usually go with the flow when creating styles.

Since i started using completely natural and organic products back in 2010 the Divas hair has grown incredibly.  When we started off she had a puff fro as i call it which is a tuft of curls that went in every direction and were roundly placed around her head.
The Diva was 5 in the above picture.

Hairspiration: Large Box Braids, Pony Tail, Curls and Beads

Here is some Hairspiration that is on the simple side for those in need of something cute yet different with a hint of ease.  This is a style i did a while back for the Divas Birthday school style.  She LOVES these star beads and requested then specifically. They are from Curly Princess Hair Boutique.  In total this style took about 25 minutes mostly due to the OCD that i have with parting.  The style is self explanatory and can even be altered over several days creating new styles from a blue print of one.  

Happy Styling! God Bless.

OBI Natural Hair Care Line

OBI Natural Hair Care Line

Hello blessed friends and family of ours! We have been busy reviewing and trying new things lately (this is the Divas FAVORITE part anyway). So this time around we are blessed to have had the opportunity to review 4 products from OBI Natural Hair Care Line.  Included in our gift pack were the following...

*OBI Curl Enhancing Custard
*OBI Curl Moisture Cream
*OBI Curl Hydration Spray
*OBI Coconut Shea Shampoo Bar

These are all full size products and they are free of sulfates, parabens, mineral oils, petroleum, DEA, phthalates, artificial colors, and carcinogens.  Omini from OBI had contacted me and so generously blessed us with these products that we've been exclusively using for the past few months. 

I will begin reviewing the aforementioned products in order.

Click here to check out a few videos about OBI Natural Hair Care and its many facets.

I will begin with the OBI Curl Enhancing Custard

Product Description
This alcohol-free formula hydrates, elongates, and provides super shine to all types of hair.  Does not leave a waxy residue or buildup. Infused with argan oil, grape seed oil, and olive oil. 

Purified water (Aqua), Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil, Vitis vinfera (Grape seed) Oil, Argania spinosa (Argan) Oil, Carbomer, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Vegetable Glycerin, Gluconolactone and Sodium Benzoate, Triethanolamine, Xantham Gum, Fragrance.

Color: White
Scent: Fragrant free lotion-y smell but in a good way
Texture/Consistency: Whipped, light, somewhat translucent creamy custard
Cost: $15.00 per 12oz


- 100% Vegan and Hypoallergenic
- Its free of alot of bad well known ingredients
- Made in the USA
- Nearly no fragrance
- Great amount of product for the price
- Very light weight
- Applies generously and vastly with a small amount used
- Kid-Friendly


- Could be scented with something or have options to get a scented custard

My Feelings

From the beginning i was intrigued from the scentlessness because it was different in a good way.  Then the texture was even more of a distinguishing type which was comparable to a real custard but more whipped and somewhat see through at points.  It being white in color is a positive because of the texture of this, it smooths in so good there isn't a trace of color present in my daughters hair and there isn't even a bit of build up even days into using this curl custard.  It can be applied a few times over if needed and still looks great and amplifies her curls equally. Id say that this serves more as a style cream for my daughter. I use this also as a light weight gel substitute or a definer but i do not intend on any hold elements coming forth.  This is an adult product but works great with children and is friendly to the eyes and skin too.  I love the hard to describe lightness that this custard presents, it is a great compliment to my daughters soft and fine loose curls. This is a keeper in our book.

                           This is the result after using the Custard and spritz together 

Next up is the OBI Curl Moisture Cream

Product Description

Use to add moisture and hydration to your hair.  Infused with argan oil, lavender oil, grape seed oil, vitamin E, and burdock root. Promotes hair growth without leaving your hair weighed down


 Purified Water (Aqua), Behentrimonium Methosulfate and Cetearyl Alcohol, Vitis vinfera (Grape seed) Oil, Vegetable Glycerin, Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil, Argania spinosa (Argan) oil, Gluconolactone and Sodium Benzoate, Arctium lappa (Burdock Root), Lavandula officinalis (Lavender) Oil, Cocos nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Glycine soya (Soybean) Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Oil, Triethanolamine, Fragrance (Parfum)


Use on wet or dry hair.  Rub a quarter size amount between your hands and apply to your hair.  Style as desired.  pH balanced Curl Moisture Cream seals in moisture and minimizes frizz by smoothing and closing the cuticle.

Color: White

Scent: Like a light perfumey scent/hard to pin point
Texture/Consistency: Fluffy, whipped and light/creamy whipping cream
Cost: $10.00 per 4oz


-Moderately kid friendly
-Made in the USA
-Can be re applied without risk of build up or particles
-Incredibly light weight
-Good for light moisturizing
-Great slip


-The scent isnt the greatest, it could come in more scents
-The cost is a little over what wed spend on a 4oz product
-It takes a  considerable amount to cover my daughters hair (super fine and thin)
-Jar is slightly leaky
-Has ARGAN oil in it (which is a NO NO for people with sever nut allergies like my daughter, luckily shes not allergic to this specifically)

My Feelings

I have used this alongside and separate from the fellow OBI products we were sent and have spent a few months reviewing these exclusively.  So i can say that this moisture cream beginning with its scent kind of through us off a bit because were not into flowery perfume smells. But the texture of this was quite a delight and if the scent was either fragrant free or fruity or herbal it would have been dynamic. I can taste the perfume in my throat after smelling it though.  This is the first product (which we tried) that has ever had the most ideal texture as far as a cream moisturizer is concerned for my daughter.  In over night braids it softens her hair greatly over night and in the morning its so soft and bouncy. It does take quite a bit of product for it to cover my daughters hair.  Overall i do like this product and it will be kept in our rotation.

             This picture is showing the results of before and after application

              This picture shows results after using the Curl Cream and Spritz together

    This style i used the Curl Cream and Spritz

Next up to bat is the OBI Curl Hydration Spray

Product Description

Purified Water (Aqua), Vegetable Glycerin, Argania Spinosa (Argan) Oil, Rose Oil, Cocos nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Soybean Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Gluconolactone and Sodium Benzoate, Triethanolamine, Fragrance (Parfum).

Spray directly onto hair and scalp. Style as usual. Hydrates curls, adds shine, detangles, and conditions hair. Does not leave buildup or residue with daily use.

Color: Clear
Scent: Perfumey

-Light weight
-Moderate spritz
-Made in the USA
-Does not leave particles
-Versatile product
-Moderately kid friendly
-Spritzer works well and emits a nice mist
-Well priced for quantity

-Perfumey-could be toned down or have other scent options
-Has ARGAN oil in it (which is a NO NO for people with sever nut allergies like my daughter, luckily shes not allergic to this specifically)

My Feelings
I like to have a good moisturizing spray on hand because it dually functions for us as a light moisturizer and a finisher. So as i began using this one (which i used exclusively with the other OBI products for a few months now and am currently still using it) i noticed right away some good qualities. I do like how the mist spritzes, it has a nice plume and it covers a vast area with just one spray. In total i use 3-4 sprays to cover her hair if down and not styled and 2 sprays if her hair is styled. I really like this as a finishing product in her hair, it helps to add moisture and doesn't need to be reapplied within the same day. I have noticed that this functions best on her damp or wet hair unless her hair is braided or styled alike. For use of this over time is concerned i've applied this once a day to styles that have stayed in a solid 7-8 days and there is not a bit of build up in sight. I hold ALL products to their claims and this hydration spray has met all of its claims hands down. I do like it. The only thing i would change is the scent of it, id prefer something sweeter or neutral. I'm all for the goodies that this hydration spray has in it. It ranks as being one of the better moisture sprays that we've tried. The fact that this does have a nut oil in it should be considered before buying it if the person who will be getting/using it has nut allergies as it could present a reaction in someone seriously allergic to all nuts...This would work great in all hair types through my experiences.

This is the result after using the Custard and spritz together

This picture shows results after using the Curl Cream and Spritz together

Last but not least is the OBI Coconut Shea Shampoo Bar

Product Description

This rich moisturizing shampoo will leave your hair soft, conditioned, and hydrated.  Shea butter deeply moisturizes and repairs damage to hair and scalp, while coconut oil protects hair from heat and chemical damage.


Saponified Oils of Coconut, Palm, Castor bean, Safflower; Shea Butter, Vegetable Glycerin, Purified Water, Rosemary Essential Oil, Sorbitol, Soybean protein, Sorbitan Oleate, Fragrance.


Wet hair thoroughly.  Apply the shampoo bar directly to the hair and create lather with your fingers.  Rinse hair with cool water.

Color: Yellowish

Scent: Coconut/Beachy
Texture/Consistency: Smooth/Solid
Cost: $ 10.00


-The bar is smooth
-Moisturizers are evidently present in the shampoo bar
-No particulates
-Made in the USA
-Moderate lather
-Kid friendly
-Amazing fresh beachy scent
-Applies moderately easy


-Price is a little out of our normal range for the actual size of the bar
-I had to look up the ingredients because there wasnt a label with the shamp bar

My Feelings 

Ive tried several types of shampoo bars to date from varying companies and this one off bat was "different" upon inspection and use.  My daughter has very fine and thin hair with loose curls so there are certain products which are in favor and certain which are not in respect to her hair.  I like lathering the shampoo bar in my hands first and applying it by hand and then using the bar to apply it to her mids-ends.  Because when you dont get a whole lot of lather on a shampoo bar it can be "annoying" when using on on a childs hair as it takes a few min to do it when just using the bar to apply. So my method of use cuts out the time consuming part of applying to my daughters long hair. The scent is amazing! Im in love with the coconut-ty freshness and even after rinsing it is still present lightly. The Diva said "I LOVE this smell" It smells so good! Which the Divas opinion matters most since this is all about her. the shampoo bar makes her hair feel nice and clean without that stripped feeling, its great!

**Overall, As a final note i must give a huge shout out and HUG to Omini for blessing us with FULL size products to review! This is a big plus to us and a necessity as well when it comes to reviewing products efficiently and thoroughly because of the time it takes to get a "good feel" of the products and how they work under various conditions and experiments.  I cant provide a great in detail, thorough review when companies send us tiny sample packs containing one or two uses. So because of Omini's great generosity we were able to provide you with a great quality review off of quality time spent on the products we received from the OBI Natural Hair Care Line! *Hugs*

Happy Styling! God Bless

4th of July Hairstyles for girls

 This is a Hair-spiration post. I meant to post this last year but i had just made it to posting these styles on our FB page and so without further a due here are three 4th of July hairstyles for girls that are super cute, festive and great for all ages that i did this past year on the Diva.  I didn't feel directions were needed as the styles are pretty much self explanatory and like most of the time these i created off the top of my head (not saying that someone hasn't thought of them before me, i just didn't see them anywhere else)...  I used a variety of products to create these styles and we are still on our all natural kick so that realm of products are all that we use. Last year i had done a cute 4th of July hair style too and you can click here to reflect upon it....


                            (This was the HUGE hit of the 4th of July styles this year <3 span="">

 These are some of the many wonderful bows we were blessed with by our lovely sponsor Cute N Curly Bowtique <3 span="">

Happy Styling! God Bless...

Mixed Chicks Kids Quad Pack Review

Mixed Chicks Quad Pack Review

We were graciously blessed with a Kids pack from Mixed Chicks and since we've been using it for some time now, i have gathered enough details and information through our steady reviewing to provide a thorough review. Included in our package is the...

*Mixed Chicks Kids Shampoo

*Mixed Chicks Kids Conditioner
*Mixed Chicks Kids Leave-In Conditioner
*Mixed Chicks Kids Tangle Tamer

In the past we have reviewed Mixed Chicks products before, of which i purchased and if interested you can click here and here to reflect on our prior review of the Mixed Chicks Conditioner (adult one) and Mixed Chicks Hair Silk respectively. For a long time i had interest in reviewing this set here but have had no luck until now and during that time Ive stumbled upon lots of reviews on all sides of the spectrum so i was interested in how these would work for us.

I will begin with the Mixed Chicks Kids Shampoo

Product Description
Finally, a tear free, gentle, natural, safe shampoo for our kids. Now you can wash tender scalps daily without fuss.


Water, Lauryl Glucoside, Disodium Cocoamphoacetate, Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate, Disodium Lauryl Sulfosuccinate, Sodium PCA, Glycerin, Caprylyl Glyco, Caprylo Hydroxamic Acid, Citric Acid, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Oil 

silicone free, sulfate free, paraben free, protein free

Color: Yellowy

Scent: Slightly Citrus-y
Texture/Consistency: Light/Medium weight/Transparent
Cost: $13.00 per 8oz


-Light/medium weight
-Slight mild fragrance
-Kid friendly
-Light/Moderate Lather


-Immediately strips my daughters hair of its nourishment
-Leaves my daughters hair coarse
-Must apply lots of conditioner/moisturizer after use immediately

My Feelings

I've been using this for weeks now and I believe that this shampoo has both good and not so good attributes... Id say that this is a kid friendly product which is a must when using products on children specifically. My daughter did not complain about it at all, It has a light and fresh scent which she did rave about.  Its consistency was pleasing to us being on the lighter side. I feel that is a bonus because my daughter has thin and fine curls/waves which cant handle heavy products. On the other side of the coin i cant help but notice the immediate feel of my daughters hair after i apply the shampoo.  Instead of feeling squeaky clean or even somewhat slick her hair felt so dry and brittle. I mean it was shocking, it seemed like i put in a chemical :( So upon repeated discovery of this result i tried to experiment with different methods/combinations and such and found out that it works best and is less harsh when i rinse immediately. The longer it sits on her hair the worse off it gets.  My daughters hair is just not able to benefit from using this shampoo, so Ive since passed it on to a friend. I conclude that I'm not exactly satisfied with this shampoo for my daughters hair, it just doesn't do great by us.

Up next is the Mixed Chicks Kids Conditioner

Product Description
A natural formula that leaves hair soft & manageable. Now mom and dad can comb though kids hair with ease.


Aqua/Water, Cetearyl Alcohol, Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Glyceryl Stearate, glycerin, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba), Seed Oil, Carthamus Tinctorius, Safflower Seed Oil, Panthenol, Capryly Glycol, Caprylohydroxamic Acid, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract, Chamomilla Recutita, Matricaria Flower Extract, Humulus Lupulus (Hops) Extract, Prunus Serotina (Wild Cherry) Bark Extract, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Arnica Montana Flower Extract


Apply to wet hair, comb through and rinse.
To style and tame frizz, follow with Mixed Chicks Kids Leave-in Conditioner.

Color: White-ish
Scent: Fragrance free
Texture/Consistency: Medium-thicker in nature
Cost: $13.00 per 8oz


-Texture has the right mix, being an in between a liquid and solid in nature
-Kid friendly
-No fragrance and i cant even smell a lotion-y smell that you'd usually get with a fragrance free product
-Smooth and applies generously with a little amount
-Produces a nice shine after use
-I can feel its immediate affect of softness


-The pump is defective and doesn't pump good
-The ingredients aren't great
-Not a natural product
-Its conditioning effect lasts for a short period

My Feelings

I believe that this conditioner is unique in comparison to many others we've tried and it can do a nice job on competing with a shampoo that is more harsh on the hair or maybe a clarifying shampoo at that. When i applied this conditioner i could immediately feel it softening my Divas hair and the longer i left it in the softer and bouncier her curls got.  I used a curl cloth to soak up the excess moisture from the bath that is left on her curls and i would put her sleep cap on and her hair stayed light, flowing and curls bouncing with sheen for an few days with minimal frizzing or poof-ing. This was something that occurred over the use of the conditioner. The only thing that threw this off for me as being a super great conditioner was that isn't a completely natural product and i have to pump the bottle 15 times to get the amount i need to cover her hair.  This product worked best for me when i used another shampoo before using it in place of the above mentioned shampoo. I cant complain about it not being suitable for children or harsh in any way because its passed the kid approved stage with my Diva and its eye friendly, scentless applies nicely. I will keep this one around for back up.

Next is the Mixed Chicks Kids Leave-In Conditioner

Product Description
Designed for our little ones. This styling product is colorless...alcohol, fragrance and paraben free, with no harsh chemicals.


Aqua/ Water, Glycerin, Stearalkonium Chloride, Amodimethicone, Emulsifying Wax, Methyl-Gluceth 20, Hydroxypropyl Guar, Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Cetyl Alcohol, Octyl Methoxycinnamate, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Oil, Carthamus Tinctorius, Safflower Seed Oil, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil, Silk Amino, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Caprylyl Glycol, Capryl Hydroxamic Acid

Color: White

Scent: Fragrance free
Texture/Consistency: Creamy/Medium thickness
Cost: $13.00 per 8oz


-Kid friendly
-Gentle/tear free
-Applies smoothly
-Non oily/non greasy
-Light weight

-The ingredients are not that healthy as a whole

My Feelings:
Well i must say that by looking at the ingredients prior to use i was skeptical as i can depict some results by a product containing certain ingredients.  On the positive side i was pleased with the unusually pleasant fragrance free element of this leave in... Most products with the "fragrance free" label have that yucky lotion-y smell but this one doesn't.  I tried using this with the Mixed Chicks Shamp and Cond as well as with other products and found that it could be used either way and provide the same results.  I like this best when i applied it to her wet or damp hair, applying it to dry hair is not easy for us.  I used about 5-6 pumps to coat her hair from root to tip. On the negative side I'm put off by this products results on my daughters hair. I cant really tell that i used this after i applied it, I'm not sure if it that her hair just absorbed it so quick or if it had to do with the ingredients not being a good match with her hair. I cant make a good recommendation on this product.  I will be passing it on so someone else can try to make use of it.

Last is the Mixed Chicks Kids Tangle Tamer

Product description
Worried about what to do the next day with your little one's nest? Our light, moisturizing formula revives bedhead and gives wild hair a fresh look.
You can use Mixed Chicks Tangle Tamer many ways

Aqua/Water, PEG-12 Dimethicone, Propylene Glycol, Polysorbate 20, Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Glycerin, Caprylyl Glycol, Capryl Hydroxamic Acid, Fragrance

Here are two ideas:

1. Spray generous amount into hair, comb through tangles, then style...or even fashion hair into a pony tail. This works great with hair that already has our kids leave-in conditioner worked in.

2. For stubborn tangle-areas: While wet, spray a generous amount into hair along with Mixed Chicks kids conditioner, comb through, then rinse.

Color: Clear
Scent: Alcohol-ish with a hint of citrus
Texture/Consistency: Slippery liquid
Cost: $13.00 per 8oz

-Good ingredients overall
-Non oily/non greasy
-Clear and not filled with gunk
-Generous plume type mist

-Non kid friendly scent (rubbing alcohol smell)
-Dissolves quick when sprayed
-Little steep in cost for the quantity that is sprayed each time/Contents of bottle
-More adult like in nature

My Feelings:
I am surprised to note that after months of reviewing this product i am still at a loss for words when i am trying to describe it. I was happy initially that this product didn't have bad ingredients in it. I've never really had much luck with detanglers so i was hoping that i couldn't compare this one to the many bad aspects in others that I've tried before. I read that this tangle tamer is a versatile product and so of course i put it to many tests as i do with all products we test and i notices that this one doesn't leave an oily after effect and her hair doesn't feel greasy nor do my fingers after application so i could apply this root to tip easily with no worry. BUT just as quick as i applied it to her wet hair (since this is the only way that we could get it to soak in efficiently) it seemed like it just evaporated or absorbed and didn't feel/appear existent in her hair.  No matter what i did whether in combination with the other Mixed Chicks products i just couldn't get this one to last... I'm thinking that the alcohol content in this is very high. I will be passing this one on as well. I'm not able to provide a good recommendation for this product.

(After application)

**Overall i am very thankful for this opportunity to review this set as for some time i have wanted to review it.  I didn't have much expectation as i try to go into every review with an open mind i also do not let what others say or think influence my reviewing.  I review honestly from my heart and through my experiences and I'm glad at least one of the products from this set worked good for us. I never let products go to waste that do not work for us good :) I always find them a good home.**
