What’s better than weave? A new weave….

First thing first, I am trying to keep up with blogging every week but it has been a struggle! I’m not gonna let you guys down so here is a 2 for 1 to close out our series this month. It’s a combo, hair, and body. Can we talk about this without being shamed? I have natural hair that I love but I also love a good weave. Y’all gonna let me be diverse right? I often were weaves and crochets to protect my natural hair but I am very careful to use products that my hair loves! Depending on the function you may catch me wearing either at any given time. You might also catch me wearing a weave in the store and come outside and I’m rocking braids….that’s a whole different story. Here is a flip side to that, my husband prefers natural hair.

Here are the current products I use and the products that I am adding to my cabinet.

Current Products:

Maui Moisture Lightweight Hydration + Hibiscus Water Shampoo and Conditioner

TGIN Moisture Rich Sulfate-Free Shampoo

TGIN Triple Moisture Replenishing Conditioner


TGIN Rose Water Sulfate-Free Shampoo

TGIN Rose Water Frizz-Free Hydrating Conditioner

TGIN Hydrating Hair Mask

As you can see I am loving the TGIN (Thank God Its Natural) product line. I love a good smelling shampoo and conditioner. These products help with detangling and leave my natural hair manageable and hydrated. If you get a chance to try it let me know!!


We not talking about health. There are enough posts and blogs about that subject. We are talking about taking care of your actual body and the skin that’s on it. I love me some smooth and moisturized skin! I can see it from a mile away glowing with all that melanated goodness! Just a little FYI…I’m a recovering bath addict. LOL, I can take a shower after a shower just because I love the relaxing and calming time. Some of my best days included a long bath. This is of course pre-child but we are working on getting back there. Here are some of my favorite products and they are super simple.

Dove Pampering Body Wash with Shea Butter and Warm Vanilla

Raw Shea Butter (Local Buy)

Variety of soaps from Bluff City Soaps

So this is my one recommendation. Find a great soap shop and products that make you and your body feel good. My life has been improved since I stumbled on Bluff City. I’ve found natural soaps that do not break my sensitive skin out, smell amazing, and are reasonably priced. If you are in the Tennessee area, let’s go shopping sometimes! What are some of your favorite products?

  1. Love this blog!! You’re right! I LOVE a good crochet to protect my natural hair! I need to start back wearing a good weave! Oh how I miss those! AND a new wig! 🤣

    This is awesome!


  2. First you know how I feel about natural hair. 😊 we won’t discuss that. But I love wearing a weave it easier for me. Even though my hair is Almost as long as my weave I can’t not get with the natural hair. So on to the body. I love hydrating my skin I love the way my body feels after a good bath. My suggestion is to try Nivea Essentially Enriched 48 hour Deep nourishing Serum & almond oil. It’s a lotion that leaves your body feeling great. I am loving your Blog Yureka keep them coming. 😘.
