Beauty Muse: Taraji P Hensen

Hey beauty lovers! The beautiful Taraji P Hensen is the beauty muse this month. I am a huge fan of this gorgeous black woman. This American actress and author has an amazing skin and her facial features are simply beautiful. It is hard to believe she is actually 49 years old. She could easily pass as a woman in her early thirties. This woman is simply gorgeous!

I remember seeing Taraji P Hensen in her first role in Baby Boy. That movie was one of my favourite back in the day. I became a fan of Hensen immediately. It would be lovely to be a fly on her wall to see how she gets to keep her skin glowing this much. But since that is not possible, reading her interviews where she shares her skincare routine and beauty tips is the closest to spying I can get.

Here are some of her skincare and beauty secrets she shared with Vogue a few days ago –

 

For her makeup

“I just like to look refreshed…. I’d usually just pop a lash on and go!”

“I’m just showing off for y’all. I just want you to know I know how to do makeup.”

This is true, she usually wears her makeup light and the natural look works great for her.

 

Here a few more skincare tips she shared in a different interview with Glamour

I wash my face in the morning and at night. I drink a lot of water. You have to stay hydrated. As far as my hair…I wrap my hair at night because that’s less heat on it everyday. I’m a health whore, for lack of a better word. I love healthy hair and healthy skin. Also, I love skin that glows. That’s why I love this shea butter, because I put it on and I feel like, when I go home and I go to bed I take my clothes off, I feel like I’ve just put lotion on. And I only put it on once a day. I use the cream for my feet and I put socks on at night.

 

Her tips are spot on. Drinking a lot of water everyday does wonders for the skin and overall health. Washing the face morning and evening nourishes the facial skin and keeps it clean/moisturised. These tips definitely help the skin stay healthy and I can see they are working great for her.

Product Review: Untamed Hair Dryer

*PR sample and affiliate link.

These days, I am paying special attention to my haircare routine and I have started noticing a massive improvement in my hair. It just confirms that good care can grow almost anything and that includes my very disobedient hair! My natural hair has not been growing as fast as I wanted. I only just realised the reason it wasn’t growing as quickly as I wanted was because I wasn’t caring for my hair the way it needed to be cared for. Nowadays, I pay special attention to any product I use on my hair and I can hardly recognise my hair now.

I was super excited to try out Untamed Hair Dryer. Prior to trying out this lovely machine for myself, I have read some amazing reviews about it so I was super keen. Untamed Hair Dryer is so different from the other hair dryers I am used to. This fantastic hair dryer doesn’t just dry your hair but it also moisturises thanks to the mini Argan Oil . It comes with a special nozzle that allows you to attach a bottle of Argan oil. This allows you multi-task by drying and nourishing your hair with the Argan oil. It is such an amazingly smart machine.

PROS
  1. The first thing I noticed was the lovely packaging and the salon length cable. It is a great length for when you need to use the hair dryer away the socket.
  2. I love the fact that it is a multi-tasking hair dryer. It is my first time using a hair dryer that also moisturises with Argan Oil.
  3. It comes with 3 nozzle – a slim nozzle, a super slim nozzle, and a nozzle for holding a bottle of Argan Oil.
  4. The hair dryer has a cold shot feature which allows you settle the cuticles with some cold air after drying. It is such a cool feature and it is great for the hair.
  5. This powerful 2000W Untamed Hair Dryer dries the hair pretty quickly. It is just what I need when I need to dry and moisturise my hair quickly.

 

CONS

None. I love everything about this wonderful hair dryer.

Coconut Hair Oils for Hair Growth

*Affiliate link.

I recently started experimenting with Coconut Hair Oils. My hair gets really dry and I have struggled with various hair creams. Many of them don’t do much so I started investing in hair oils instead. Previously, I have tried Almond Oils. I used them for many years but I found them a little too greasy for my hair. My hair is quite dry but not dry enough to get away with using Almond Oils for too long. So I stopped using them and decided to stick to using only Coconut Oil for sometime. I usually mix my hair oils with water in a spray bottle, to allow me spray when needed but I decided to use the oils even more. A few weeks ago, I started moisturising my hair and scalp with some coconut oil, after using the spray bottle and I noticed my hair really started to grow.

The Coconut Oil Hair Growth Experience

I realised my hair needed some extra moisture in addition to the spray bottle and I am so happy to have found what really works for my hair. My hair loves some coconut oil and it really works. The hair oil leaves my hair soft, manageable and healthy. My hair has really grown so quickly in the last few weeks. I will be showing off the length and thickness in my next hair post. It is currently twisted up underneath a scarf and I am too lazy to undo it all and take a photo. Another thing I discovered my hair likes is some natural heat. Once I take a protective style off, I rock my natural hair for sometime to enable my hair recover from the previous style. This allows me also clean and moisturise it for some weeks. When I moisturise with water and some coconut oil, I pop my silk hair scarf on for some hours while working from home. I believe this has also helped in growing my natural hair.

I currently use this Naissance Fractionated Pure Coconut Oil. It is an amazing oil and the brand has other oils I am experimenting with as well. I will be writing a review on those soon. You can read the full review of the Naissance Fractionated Pure Coconut Oil and shop this Coconut Hair Oil below.
