Review: Bobeam Honey & Oats Shampoo Bar

I found out about Bobeam while reading threads on CurlTalk. Now, I had never tried shampoo bars, and wasn't sure which of her products would suit my hair. So I contacted the owner, Laquita, with the intent of trying to purchase sample sizes. Well currently, sample sizes aren't available, but I do think she's working on adding more sizes. She was nice enough to send me three mini bars to try in the meantime. So far I've only tried the Honey & Oats Shampoo Bar, but I'm definitely impressed (enough to stalk her Etsy shop. Yes, it is that serious! She sells out quickly!).

Ingredients: Saponified vegetable oils (mainly Coconut Oil), Glycerine, Honey, Purified Water, Sorbital (berries, moisturizer), Sorbitan Oleate, (emulsifier), Soybean protein (conditioner)

Thoughts: I was apprehensive at first because I hadn't tried shampoo bars before, and I had just done an intense protein treatment so in the back of my mind I was thinking "dry, dry, and more dry!" …

Review: B.A.S.K Cacao Bark Deep Conditioning Hair Treat

I recently ordered some BASK (Beauty Assortment for the Sun-Kissed) products. I'm very impressed with the products I got and the owner (Rashida). I will definitely be purchasing from her again.

Ingredients: Distilled Water, Prime Pressed Cocoa Butter, Virgin Coconut Cream, Kukui Moluccana Seed Oil, Agave Nectar, Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Raw Cocoa Powder, Amalaki Fruit Powder, Cetyl Alcohol, Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Butylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol and Ethylhexylglycerin.

I'm loving it. I wasn't thrilled about 8oz for $20, but it is comparable to and cheaper than some deep conditioners on the market. It smells edible, no lie, I was tempted to lick it when I first opened it. The scent is not overpowering so those who are fragrance-sensitive need not worry. I deep condition with it overnight. My hair is left soft as with any DC, but what impressed me each time I used it was how my hair dried. It was very smooth, soft, and moisturized, but not over-co…

Why "Kinks of Nature"?

Besides "Kinks of Nature" having an interesting ring to it and the input of ladies of the CurlyNikki Forums (thanks!), I chose the name because of the duality of its meaning. Kinks, for the purposes here, can be defined as quirks or idiosyncrasies of one's personality. Kinks can also be used in reference to the natural texture of one's hair. Being that I have a head full of naturally kinky hair and lots of different quirks about just seemed to fit.

This blog will feature my hair journey, reviews (hair, beauty, books, and lots more), food (one of my greatest loves!), music...ok, you get the idea. Basically, whatever captures my interest. :)
