Everyone knows I'm a weave hair wearing girl, and I love going to the hair salon. However those times when I can't hit the salon, and I have an event to go to, I have to grab my go-to products that I know will get the job done. Usually I don't like trying new products unless a friend recommends them, but I found out about Parnevu one day when I needed some cream hair dress for my edges, which are the messiest as you all know with weaves. I wanted something that would give my hair control without the damp wet look of most other creams. I walked into my beauty supply store looking through tons of products to choose from, but I wanted to try something new, and right then and there I found magic. Even though I wanted a cream check out the amazing products I picked up by this brand of hair care. It left my hair shiny, no flaking, and just enough moisture for my long days. Try something new, that serves all purposes for our hair. Parnevu!!
PARNEVU Extra Dry Crème Hairdress is a light therapeutic hair and scalp treatment that when used on a regular basis improves hair's texture and prevents breakage. Elastic lubricants penetrate hair strands and provide flexibility throughout subsequent maintenance. It will replace nature's moisture at the scalp, soothing dryness and promoting root development.
PARNEVU Extra Dry Oil Styling Lotion is specially formulated with Vitamin E and the finest natural oils to protect, condition, and moisturize your hair. It absorbs into hair, replacing vital moisture lost due to chemical damage and everyday styling. Use it every time you style your hair to maintain your hair's natural moisture level and manageability.
PARNEVU Extra Dry Shining Gel adds extra control to help hard-to-hold styles stay in place while leaving your hair beautifully shiny. This unique formula gives long-lasting style and gloss combined with moisturizers and conditioners that leave the hair manageable, full of body, and extra sheen without flaking. This gel assures greater control, deeper penetration, and the style you dare to create.

Yeah, for most of us we are dealing with the horrible reality that we are getting older and we can't stay up all night and not suffer the repercussions. We are battling dark circles, tiredness with lack of sleep, and sometimes even wrinkles. One thing I know for sure nobody thinks circles are a good thing so here's some tips on how to combat those woes.
Even though, I love giving you all my favorite L.Y.P beauty favorites, I couldn't help but update you this month on a horrifying story I read in Essence magazine. Sometimes the price we pay for beauty can be too much. Before we decide to do anything to our bodies ladies, let's do some research and please don't let it be boot-leg, I mean it's your body, and your health. You cannot fix that if you play with it. Read below for the grippling story!!
Tragically, her quest for curves cost her all her limbs and almost her life.
In 2004, Brown says she paid a "pumper," an unlicensed person, to inject industrial-grade silicone into her buttocks. Brown can't recall how much the woman actually charged — maybe $500, maybe $1,000 — but over time, she says, the area became intensely irritated and painful, and the skin blackened. By early 2006 she says the silicone had hardened, causing severe pain and infection, ultimately requiring her to have lifesaving amputation of her limbs last year.
Now adjusting to her new life with prosthetics, Brown shares her story — and her warning for others tempted to check out "pumping parties" — with writer Amy Elisa Keith in ESSENCE. "I was left here for a purpose," she says. "I have to get the word out so that nobody else makes this choice."

Black Opal, the leading cosmetics brand for people of color partnered with emerging designer Samantha Black to present the 2013 S/S runway collection. Celebrity make-up artist and Black Opal Artistic Director Frank Guyton served as the key make-up artist creating a retro look with a fresh and new twist.
"My inspiration for this collection started off with simple SOHO brunch. Back in the day women used to dressed up.They were classy and feminine. Today, brunch is more of a scene, funky, sassy and very fashionable. My collection is a mixture of both, colliding vintage fashion with a modern twist; while remaining very feminine, sassy and innovative."

I have to admit, this is always a headache of mine. I go and get a manicure on Wednesday, by Monday I'm hiding my nails. My polish is off, and my nails are all broken. LOL. Hellobeautiful comes up with a simple way to keep them going....
Here’s a quick tip to protect your manicure:
1. Apply topcoat daily. It is the number-one way to ensure your manicure lasts.
2. Sweep on a protective topcoat daily to increase your nail polish’s staying power.
Is Rihanna not fit to be an image for Nivea brand. Face wise she's a hit, but yesterday the brand made an announcement that she may not quite fit the image they are. Nivea stands for trust, family and reliability unfortunately they couldn't figure out how to join the two, and have them make sense. I mean Rihanna is our modern day rock-star, what were they expecting prom dresses? Maybe Rihanna should keep her image behind closed doors and she'll have a better chance of having a brand, that consistently uses her as a viable asset to their companies.

Not that I condone this, but I do remember me trying this with a hair pin at home. There’s a new product on the market—the HDE Nose Up Bridge Straightening Beauty Clip. This #1 bestselling product in Japan requires users to wear this clip for a minimum of 15 minutes a day all for a whopping $5. Of course at the time I didn’t realize I was succombuing to our American beauty standards, but for those who feel they hate their nose like I did, it’s worth a try, than getting a nose job.
KIM KIMBLE HOOKS US UP WITH SOME HAIR TIPS!
Jasminebrand.com interviewed Kim Kimble Kim the owner of Kimble Hair Studio in West Hollywood and reality TV star of WeTV’s “L.A. Hair”. We couldn’t discuss full details about her new salon, but she did offer some insight into the craziness of being a salon owner and great summer hair dos and dont’s. Kimble who has been a salon owner for over 10 years, revealed that “L.A. Hair” allowed her to see what really goes on at the salon when she’s not present. She was surprised by many of the antics of China, the salon manager. But said it’s a part of the business.
- If you wear a weave, don’t get it re-done too often without giving your hair a rest in between.
- Be realistic, find the right texture and color to blend with your hair.
- Don’t leave a weave in for longer than 3 months.
- Wash your hair regularly, once a week.
- If you do an ombre, get it done right. Ombre should be a gradient effect of color lightening.
Facial Scrubs: The Basics Of Exfoliating
1. They remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, they help to unclog pores, they stimulate blood flow which is more prevalent in mechanical exfoliation (the physical rubbing of dead skin off also known as gommage).
2. They promote the growth of new skin cells (cell turnover)
3. They make your skin look brighter and feel smoother.

Thursday night, Bria Murphy launched Dark and Lovely's "6 Week Anti-Reversion Cream Serum" at Studio Arte in New York City. Bria's been making her mula from the creamy crack company for over a year. Product looks like it will do wonders for hair.
I really love this product. I learned about it on youtube.com when I was looking to get a better wear out of my curly weave, that I tried with synthetic hair. Normally doing weaves is a no-no with synthetic hair, but this product actually gives you a bang for your buck. It really accentuates curles, and gives you a nice shine after a wash...
