I've had it since high school and was always on a constant search for products that would help keep my scalp itch and scab free. From scalp scrubs to apple cider vinegar washes, I've tried it all and to no avail (BTW that Sunday Riley Clean Rinse scalp treatment is a BUST). While I've had moments of scalp freedom, my experience with seborrheic dermatitis was so consistent that I ended up getting used to it and had all but given up on my search. I didn't realize how good it could feel to have an itch-free scalp... until I tried Vitabrid C12's hair care line. Vitamin C Hair Care = SCALP FREEDOMThe duo that I owe my scalp health to is Vitabrid C12's Scalp Shampoo and Hair Tonic. For my first week of use, I decided only to use the shampoo, no conditioner, and the tonic at my roots. I'd put a leave-in oil from Ouai for the middle and ends of my hair to keep them moisturized.Vitabrid C12 Scalp Shampoo:From Vitabrid C12's website, benefits of this shampoo include: - Helps to reverse the damage caused by environmental factors as well as chemical treatments and processing. - Antioxidants Vitamins C & E deliver energy to the cells to promote healthy hair. - Prevents hair loss and promotes thicker hair. - Natural plant-sourced ingredients make a sensitive and weak scalp healthier and provide moisture and nutrients to the hair, thus maintaining its luster. - Natural, plant-sourced ingredients keep the scalp healthy, nourished, and moisturized. - Gentle, pH balanced formula is safe for all hair types and textures. - Free of 16 harmful substances including silicon, parabens, and sulfates

Vitabrid C¹²Scalp ShampooVitabrid C12 Hair Tonic:From Vitabrid C12's website, benefits of this tonic include: - Patented vitamin C powder is combined with a hair tonic, allowing for the delivery of transdermal Vitamin C into the scalp for 12 hours. Vitamin C improves cell metabolism and promotes collagen production, preventing hair loss and making hair stronger. - Active ingredients are delivered deep into the scalp to soothe irritation caused by harmful external factors. Additional nutrients deliver moisture and help promote thicker, shinier, healthier hair. - Antioxidant protection minimizes UV damage and prolongs the life of hair color - A separate conditioner is not needed as it hydrates and smoothes the scalp and hair
Vitabrid C¹²Hair Tonic ProfessionalAn Unexpected Experience & Better-Than-Hoped-For ResultsAs you can see above, these two products have some powerful claims and some powerful ingredients. I went into trying this duo with minimal expectations—after you've tried just about everything for scalp health to no effect, it's safe to keep expectations low. My first impressions on the shampoo: - WOW this smells sooo good! Citrus-y but not too sweet. A hint of musk. This could be a perfume 😍 - Love this lather, and it feels really cooling on my scalp - I wish there was a conditioner tho... My first impressions on the tonic: - Ooof this smells really strong, almost medicinal - That vitamin C is coming through though - I like how fine this mist is The next morning waking up - My scalp doesn't itch!!! - My hair is BOUNCING - Is this what scalp freedom feels like? After about a week of use, it was safe to say I found my holy grail when it comes to scalp care. I threw away all the arbitrary scalp products I had (sorry Briogeo and Sunday Riley) and reveled in this discovery. Fast forward to a month of use, and my scalp has truly never felt so healthy. I only use the scalp shampoo about once or twice a week, but I continue to use the hair tonic every time I wash my hair. Finding products that grant you freedom from discomfort is why beauty lovers scour the web for all sorts of solutions. When you find something so good, share it with the world!

CMON MADDIE..... Really ? 😒
okay so i’m sorry for the light this week but i’m working on a work station. However this Morphe Maddie palette isn’t doing it for the me. In my opinion I believe to pull a good palette together is blend ability and good shimmer or glitters. The shimmers on the is so trash 🗑 sorry to say. i literally had to dig for a good creamy shine. However it isn’t a complete miss. The other colors did have some good pigment and my fav shade is the black shade. It was really dark and blendable. I would probably recommend this to someone with more fair skin because they pigments and shimmers would work better in their favor. Have you used this palette if yes tell me all about below, if no would you still wanna try it out and why ?

My Top 5 Foundations for Oily Skin
Here are my top 5 foundations for oily/combination/acne prone skin! These are by no means my only favorite foundations, just the ones I keep going back to. 1. ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation This matte, oil-free foundation controls oil all day. It’s sweat, heat and humidity-resistant, waterproof and 24-hour colour true. With buildable, medium-to-full coverage that feels lightweight and so comfortable. No touchups needed. Best for hot weather/ holidays. The only Downside is that it doesn’t come with a pump 2. MAYBELLINE - Fit Me! Matte & Poreless Foundation This foundation is a must have if you are looking for a good drugstore option for oily skin. It’s super affordable and gives a beautiful finish without feeling heavy on the skin. 3. HUDA BEAUTY - Fauxfilter Foundation is perfect for you if you are looking for full coverage. Just a couple of pumps go a long way. However, the formula isn’t ideal for anyone with dry skin or for people sensitive to string fragrances. 4. L'ORÉAL - Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Longwear Foundation This formula blends unbelievably well and you can build this to completely full coverage! ! I'm beyond impressed for this being drugstore. 5. The Ordinary - Colours Coverage Foundation with SPF 15 this is my everyday foundation and gives good enough coverage. I just have to mix two different shades to get my color as the range is quiet limited but for the price I pay, I don’t mind. Always stay away form words like “dewy”, “luminous”, “shiny” , “glowy” if you have oily skin. Let me know if you have any questions.
Preserving My Curls Overnight
This is how I preserve most of my hairstyles overnight! I hear many people complain about how their bonnet or scarf is always falling off their head and ending up on the floor once they wake up, I was having the same issue! That is when I decided to create a wrap that would stay on throughout the night while protecting your curls. I hand make them myself and sale on Etsy (link in my bio) if you are interested! 😊
The best sunscreen for dry skin☀️
Y’all… Let me tell you how dry my skin gets. My skin gets so dry that it looks like my skin is actually flaking. I have struggled with dry skin my entire life and I hardly find any products that truly help my skin. I reached out to a friend who gave me a skin care routine and she suggested this sunscreen PURITO - Centella Green Level Unscented Sun SPF50+ it is honestly the best! Not only is it scent free but it hydrates my skin without burning it. I have high sensitivity to a lot of products and this is one that doesn’t make my skin irritated or break out. If you struggle with dry skin, try out this sunscreen! Not only does it help with the dryness but also you should always be protecting your face with sunscreen!!!
