Hair 101 Organic Growth Drops By Lenisha Perry: THEY REALLY WORK!!!

Hey Family!

When Lenisha Perry reached out to me and offered me a bottle of her hair drops to review I was EXCITED!  I have been following her page for a while and always admired her professional work and her crazy hustle.  She is a salon owner and entrepreneur that has over 17 years of hair care experience and it’s clear from her page that she’s a professional who knows what she’s doing!  It also pays to mention that she’s an illustrious alumnus of Flint Northern High School, the best High School in Flint. ☺


Let me be honest though:  I was also skeptical.  Allow me to explain: 


I see all sorts of oils and creams all over the market claiming to work all sorts of hair miracles.  I’m old school when it comes to hair growth: Good old fashioned shampooing, deep conditioning, moisturizing, and protective styling is what I preach.  There are a lot of products on the market that are popular that I’ve tried but just don’t like...because they're selling lies and illusions lol.   It’s also important to me to keep the integrity of my blog so that my audience trusts my opinion. So although Lenisha sent me her own before and after pictures:

I decided to document my own:

Ok so this picture was taken on 01/26/2018.  I had experienced some hairline thinning from my feed-in braids in October, I added circles to the pictures so that you could really see where the thinning is.  I remember calling my sister so upset because I couldn’t believe that I was having yet another setback with my edges.  I thought that this was permanent because my braids were taken down in October and here I was 4 months later and I hadn’t seen any growth. I decided that I would start out fresh on 02/01/2018 and be consistent with the product for one month and monitor my progression with pictures because the camera don’t lie!  I decided against brushing it into my hair and instead started off by placing a few drops on my fingertips and massaging them into my edges nightly and then tying my hair with my satin scarf before bed.  I was nervous and skeptical but was gonna give it an honest try.  The ingredients are Black Seed, Castor Oil, and Rosemary.....sounded good so I decided to give it a go.  Remember:  This is NOT a paid review and this article is fully my own opinion.

I was seeing progress in the mirror but decided to take a picture to be sure.  Were my eyes deceiving me?!  I sent the two- week progression picture to a few of my brutally honest friends to make sure I wasn’t making things up in my mind.  All three were immediately ready to place an order.  This was literally filing my hairline back in after TWO WEEKS! What was even better was that I was only using a few drops nightly to my hairline!!  A little goes a long way!

I’ll be honest, I was really consistent with applying the oil for like the first week and a half and then after that, I might’ve missed a night or two here and there.  I was still very pleasantly surprised at my results.  I especially like the consistency and smell of the oil.  I’m not a big fan of heavy oils and this one is light with a very light and pleasant scent.  It didn't give me a headache and the smell mostly disappeared as soon as i applied it.  It comes in a dropper bottle which I used occasionally throughout my hair for dry spots because this winter pushed my scalp to the limits on moisture!


So the final verdict:  Do I recommend this oil?!  YES!!!  You can purchase her oil for $13.99 from her website!  You can also ask questions and book a hair appointment.  I would recommend following her on Instagram so that you can see all the healthy and fly hairstyles she posts on nearly a daily basis.  She has been featured on many hair pages, I honestly believe she'll be in Hollywood before we know it. ☺

7 Styling Products I Found At Sally's


Hey Everyone!!

7 Products LifeOfJoslyn Found At Sally's

For the past several months I have been doing a ton of protective/low manipulation styling.  You can actually see my hair just about everyday if you follow me on Instagram (LifeofJoslyn), I update my stories pretty frequently and I usually add a fun voting poll!  With protective styling it means lots of buns, ponytails, and wash n go's. These styles require daily styling products so I decided to give a review on 7 different styling products that I've found at Sally's.  I purchased each of these products with my own money so these are my honest opinions...and I was sure to include a couple that I didn't like.  Now here's my disclaimer:  The review that you're reading is my opinion based on how the products worked on my hair.  My opinion isn't law.....yet :-)


Ok first up:  As I Am Smoothing Gel: 

This is favorite gel right now.  It has a thick, jelly-like consistency.  It's not drying at all and it doesn't flake on me.  What I like best is that while it smooths my hair, I can still comb through it the next day; it doesn't make my hair hard or overly stiff.  My only critique is that I wish it came in a bigger jar!  This is the 3rd jar I've purchased.  Disclaimer: I only use it for smoothing my hair into a bun or ponytail, I haven't used it for wash n go's.

Next up:  Hicks Edges:  So I almost always find this hiding on the bottom row at Sally's.  I don't believe that there is a full hair care line that Sally's carries for this brand, I've only seen this product.  As far as edge smoother's go its pricey at a little over $15!  I picked this up on a recommendation of a friend and let me tell you:  IT WORKS!!  It lays your edges without drying them out and without making them too stiff. It almost has the consistency of a pomade.  If you want to try it wait until Sally's offers a 25% off coupon and check it out.  If you hate it, return it!  This is my second jar of Hicks.

Alright: Now we have "The Mane Choice Crystal Orchid Biotin Infused Styling Gel."  I like the amount of product you get in the jar and I like the consistency of the product which reminds me of aloe vera gel.  This product is just ok for me and I think I'll save the rest of the gel until this summer because it was drying on my hair.  I tried it to  smooth my hair and it does smooth but my hair was SO DRY at the end of the day that I decided to place it to the side.  So I will revisit in the summer when I wear my hair wet more often.

Oyin Hair Dew.  Ya'll:  So I picked this up because you don't hear a ton about the brand and I know that sometimes when a brand is low-key that it might be a secret gem.  I mean, I started buying Carol's Daughter when she was still making it in her home and back then those were some of THEE best oils and cremes you could buy!  Oyin Hair Dew?  MAJOR disappointment!  I tried it so many ways:  On damp hair, on damp hair followed by an oil, on dry hair followed by an just was NOT moisturizing AT ALL!  The best way I can describe it is when you purchase a super cheap body lotion and put it on your hands only to find yourself just as ashy five minutes after you apply it.  This was the hair equivalent for me.  There was another product that I like from this line that I'll review on a different post but the hair dew will not be a recurring purchase for me.

Next we have Silk Elements Pure Oils Hair Butter:  By the time you read this post this product will be in a return bin at Sally's.  This product comes with a seal over it so you can't see it or smell it before purchase.  It has a gritty texture that would make this product an excellent body scrub but an awful moisturizer.  I put some in my hands and rubbed them together and all of these crumbly white bits fell into my lap and the rest dissolved into an oil.  My hair hated it and I had pieces of grit in my hair from where it wasn't rubbed together enough.  This is way too much work to moisturize your hair.  I won t repurchase.

Up Next:  Mielle Organics Moisturizing Avocado Hair Milk:  Ya'll I LOVE this moisturizer!  It's not too light and not too heavy and has a light coconut scent.  It moisturizes my hair by itself and it works even better when I use an oil after it.  I've used it on wet hair after I co-washed and I've used it on straight dry hair and that makes this one of my few all purpose hair products.  I actually like a lot of products from this line but I believe that this is my 3rd bottle of hair milk. I recommend this one!!

Last but certainly not least:  The Mane Choice Growth Oil:  So while the gel from this line is "just ok" this oil right here?!  I LOVE IT!  What's funny is that I bought this during a "buy 2 get 1 free" sale because I already had every other Mane Choice product.  I have always used organic coconut, grape seed, or almond oil on my hair so I wasn't expecting much from this oil but I was pleasantly surprised!  This oil is the perfect consistency:  Not to light, not too heavy, and not too runny.  I have been using it on damp hair before I apply gel and also on the ends of my hair.I love the applicator nozzle and I can't wait to use it on my scalp the next time I get braids.  I would recommend this oil for scalp and hair...This is definitely staying in the rotation and I will repurchase!

So those are the 7 that I reviewed for this month but I've got MANY more to review!  What are some products that you're wondering about?  Leave me a comment below and I might pick them up for review!


As always, thank you so much to take the time to read my blog,it means the world to me.  Feel free to follow me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter!!  Until then, I'll keep you posted on my protective styles!! Love ya! :-)
