FAB REVIEWS: FORM Beauty

Last month, the team at FORM Beauty selected me to become a product ambassador. I was so excited to try these products because I’ve only heard amazing reviews. At the same time, I was hesitant because the Form Beauty system is kinda expensive – and that’s been the biggest complaint. However, the following review will help you understand why Form Beauty is a good deal. Yes, it’s a great deal! Let go!

When I was asked to be an ambassador, the first thing the team wanted me to do was take a survey to assess which Form products would work best with my hair type AND my hair routine. Many of you know I run the natural hair blog, Natural in Nashville (currently on hiatus), so I’m used to trying products that make big promises with no return. I love my natural hair but I hate that it gets SO dry, tangles easily, and shrinks as soon as I hit a piece of humidity. For those concerns, I tend to keep my hair in braids and protective crochet styles.

After I took the 10 minute survey, I was presented with a list of Form Beauty products specialized for my hair type and situation.  Even though I love my cute curls, I’m a braid girl all day. Give me some bundles or some crochet and I’m ready! The key to being someone who wears weave and braids often is to make sure your hair is healthy UNDERNEATH your installation. If you get scared to take out your weave because your hair looks like ‘who did it and what for’ then you are doing natural hair ALL WRONG.

My first package from the Form Beauty team included the TWIST Styling Cream ($29) and the Multitask Leave-In Lotion ($32). I was immediately attracted to the Leave-In lotion. It’s a lotion in a specialized spray bottle. The product comes out in a fine mist so it distributes amazingly well. When I used it on my hair I was instantly in love. The smell of the Form Beauty products is amazing. The found the perfect balance … not floral but not heavy. If your guy has longer hair, he could use it too and not smell like a florist shop.

The next week I was ready to take the plunge. I washed, conditioned and then I blow dried my hair. I used the Twist Styling Creme to do a two-strand twist. Y’all! It came out so bomb! But the real test is if I could get SECOND DAY hair!

Second Day Hair! Yup! It passed the second day hair test! My hair was super moisturized, not greasy, kept its shape and felt so soft. I used a couple pumps of the leave in, to separate yesterday’s coils and wah-la! My hair was ready to rock. I’m totally in love with this styling system and I can’t wait to try the cleansers and conditioners.

So, are the Form Beauty products worth the cost? Albeit, they are expensive, it’s a QUALITY product. Also, my hair is about shoulder length now, but it’s thick. So, I didn’t have to use as much product to get the best results. Also, they have a subscription service and the product is available in Sephora. So, you don’t have to worry about running out in the middle of wash day. Oh yeah, and it’s a BLACK OWNED company! Yes! That’s the most exciting part. A black owned company working hard to help women with textured hair! I’m excited to support.

Oh yeah, I got a video coming soon on how I achieved my up-do! You know I go you!

VLOG | Follow Me to the Odysseo – Cavalia Show in Nashville

Y’all! Y’all! Y’all! Go see Odysseo – Cavalia! I have to admit, when I was contacted by the Odysseo team, I wasn’t too hype to see the ‘fancy horse show’. If you live in Nashville, you’ve seen the, almost, cryptic banners, posters, signs, billboards, and yard signs, telling you that Odysseo by Cavalia is the ‘GREATEST show you’ll ever see’. Seriously, I was over it. But then . . . GIRL, I saw the show! It IS THE GREATEST SHOW YOU’LL EVER SEE! Let’s talk about it!

MY STYLE: Pre-Fall CHIC with Simply Be

We are in that wacky time between summer and fall. In fashion, we call this pre-fall. In my closet, we call this WAR! Living in Tennessee, but being from Massachusetts, I’m always at war with my fall sensibilities. I’m the person who is happy that Pumpkin Spice is back, ready to wear all the layers, and waiting for the first bonfire invite. But, even I know that we won’t get those TRUE fall temperatures until late October, maybe even November. Sigh.

That’s why, when I was contacted by Simply Be to review some of their plus-size looks, I was excited. Simply Be has an EXPANSIVE collection of items. Like, dude, theirs 100’s of looks! Their range of sizes are from 8-28, which is AWESOME! Also, their comment section, under each item, is very informative. The shoppers do a good job of sharing if an item worked for them, it’s quality, and value.

Below, I share the three pieces I received from Simply Be. This is a sponsored post, but I’m gonna keep it ALL the way real with you. I hate to waste money, and I’d hate you to waste money too. Lets get it:
