My name is Mikayla! I'm a 22 year old University Graduate with a passion for all things beauty. I stumbled into the online beauty community a year ago and have been obsessed with youtube videos and blogs ever since. After watching hundreds of videos over the past year I figured it was about time I joined the community and posted my own thoughts in my own little space. I'm also recently graduated, unemployed and headed for college in September.

I really enjoy all things beauty, and I really like telling my friends what I think about products so writing them down just felt natural. To me, make up isn't something that you wear to make yourself look prettier, it's something you do on yourself for yourself. It has the power to give you strength to tackle a rough day, the courage to find your inner confidence and sparkle like every girl is meant too.

Other than beauty, I love fashion. Beauty and Fashion are the keys to my heart, along with a great deal. I'm all about a decent deal, and budget shopping is my favourite.

I can't wait to start this journey with the internet and all of you!

Girls with Curls Shampoo, Conditioner and Curl Gelee Review

Thursday, 11 September 2014

Girls with Curls is a recent product line launch by Dippity Do does anyone else think of the hair gel from their childhood when they hear that name? I have found this line at London Drugs, Walmart and Target for around $5 a product. The line has the curl shampoo, curl conditoner, curl gellee and curl cream. I have the shampoo/conditioner and the gellee. Overall, I am impressed with the line, I do find that it helps my curls look more defined and not as flat or shapeless and frizzy.

The Gellee is a really unique product as far as my curl care goes, it's not a gel but it's not a mouse, it's more like a whipped gel. The directions tell the user to apply the gellee to wet hair from roots to ends be warned: too much will make your roots a sticky mess apply cautiously and scrunch. I find this works best my flipping your hair over your head and applying like you would a mouse, scrunching as you go.

The combination of shampoo/conditioner/gellee really does help my curls in particular look more curly, my sister has found the shampoo/conditioner a little too drying for her hair, but on me I think it removes the rest amount of oils to really let my curls form and last.

I would rate this system:
8/10 for price, at just $5 a product, washing 2-3 times a week the bottles should last a fair amount of time, and the small amount of gellee required for my long thick hair is really doing the job, promising a long lasting use of the product.
8/10 for overall experience, I find it works and will repurchase when I run out.
