Shea Moisture Repair & Transition Kit Review

Hey Guys,

<--CurlyKeila :)
So, this past September I was the winner for the Naturally Curly 'Grow Out Challenge'  and won free Shea Moisture products!!! Yay!!! So, of course I had to test it out last night. Here are the results:

Shea Moisture Retention Shampoo: I like how thick this shampoo is it's like a conditioner; very sudsy; didn't have an odor; didn't strip my hair and left some moisture. I would recommend this shampoo.

Shea Moisture Restorative Conditioner: This is moisturizing however I had to use a lot of product, I hate that its not as thick as the shampoo. This conditioner to me was too light for my taste; I prefer As I Am Coconut Co Wash. This may work on curlies who use lighter products.

Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque: I really like this, it left my hair so soft! I left it in for like 40 minutes, the jar says 5-30 minutes but I was eating gumbo lol. The smell isn't that bad, it smells at first but I had completely forgot about the odor once I started applying it. I would definitely recommend this!

Shea Moisture Reconstructive Elixir: This smells sooo good! I applied this after putting the Tresemme Naturals as a leave in. I think I put a tad bit too much so I would advise to go easy on it.

As far as the next day, my hair doesn't feel as moisturized I know part of it is due to the weather. Also, I should have put the Shea Moisture Enhancing Smoothie in then sprayed the elixir. Not sure, but I will give this a go again and make a video blog next time.

Naturally Curly is still doing the Grow Out contest so go sign up and start blogging and win some free products!!! Check it out here:

Until next time y'all,

UPDATE: I recently did a hair tutorial on a few of Shea Moisture products reviewed here, so you can check that out here:

I love Fashion, it is a great way to express yourself and create. BUT, I am very disappointed in the trends that became popular this Fall/Winter. The industry has ABUSED the Cross symbol by making it "fashionable" and DISRESPECTING it by associating it with Skulls. The Cross is OUR, and by our I mean us Christians, way of remembering that Jesus died for our sins. It is positive, it gives us hope, it shows GOD's love for us by allowing his son to die to save us from our sins. It is not a trend or a fad it is a way of life! Then to associate it with skulls which represents death, darkness is Blasphemy in my opinion! I have also witnessed clothes with the cross and UPSIDE down cross. The upside down cross is the sign of the DEVIL, do NOT be fooled! They are promoting evil right now, if you didn't believe that we are in the end of times the proof is in the pudding! I just had to acknowledge what is going on and I hope you all do not fall victim of this evil doing. Moving along...


It's cold, it's raining so pull out those sweaters girls! I've been noticing the sequin sweaters and I love them! I just purchased two and have gotten many compliments.

First up, is Nordstroms Tasha Topper in Gold:
I just purchased this and can't wait to wear it! These will pair great with a pair of leggings or skinnies. Cute flats, pumps, or combat boots if you want to spice it up! I'm thinking of wearing my Joe Jeans black jeggings with my gold studded Steve Madden boots and my gold/black shimmer headband. I'll take pics and update on this page.

Next up, is the Chole K sequin sweater in Burgundy:
I love and have this! I adore plums, burgundies and maroons it really compliments dark skinned ladies like myself ;p! I wear black jeggings with this or my burgundy pants. You can dress this up or down and I love the pocket detail.

Check this sequin dress out by Stella McCartney: 

AND this daring sequin sweater by TopShop:
Talk about hitting gold! This will definitely turn heads! No need to over accessorize with this one because it is the accessory. A simple bracelet or earrings will do. Leggings or a long skirt and Flats or pumps!

Ladies stock up on your sequin sweater and take advantage of the cold weather! Stay warm and cute! XOXO Keila


Sooo, I recently purchased some products from and I purchased the Organic Aloe and Green Tea Facial Toner and Australian Olive Green Facial Masque.

Review: The Facial Toner is AWESOME! It really helps when I have breakouts, I just apply the toner all over morning and night and my pimples start to go down the next morning. I'm washing my face with African Black Soap and moisturizing with Organic Unrefined African Shea Butter from Butters N Bars. My blemishes are starting to clear up as well. Next purchase will be their Raw African Black Soap, I love this site!

The Facial Masque works great as well but my skin feels very dry, sometimes a little irritated when rinsing it off. I think maybe the Australian Pastel Pink Masque may suit me better because I have very sensitive skin. Nonetheless, the Olive Green Masque is great but if you have very sensitive skin like I do I suggest trying the Pastel Pink Masque.
*SURPRISE* When checking out your items put in the coupon code: STRAWBERRICURLS for a 10 percent off!


So I won the Naturally Curly Grow-Out Challenge sponsored by Shea Moisture for the month of September!!!! WOO HOO!  I won the Shea Moisture Repair and Transition Kit, I am awaiting my package and will update you all on the products!


My hair is growing like crazy and I am happy but no so happy with the tangles and knots! My hair has been feeling a little dry, most likely from the weather, and the not so fun tangles are annoying! I have to admit I have not been taking care of my hair like I should be. I need a much needed DT of just plain ol Trader Joe's Raw Honey. I def might need a strengthening treatment and I think I'll use the products I won from Naturally Curly.

I hope all of you are doing better than me in the moisture department and keeping those tresses healthy! Happy Holidays y'all! XOXO Keila


Hey y'all, it's been a minute since my last post so I have some updates for y'all!

I have officially launched my fundraiser campaign for "I Beez In This Trap"!!!! I am starting a series of web comedy sketches, similar to In Living Color, MadTV etc., so let's bring variety shows back! Please donate to this project and tell all your friends and relatives to donate as well! Here is the link: DONATE TODAY, TOMORROW!!!

I was recently interviewed by the popular hair blog site Curly Nikki! Mrs. Nikki is so cool for this and I am grateful she gave me the opportunity to tell my story! Check out her site NOW as well as my interview:

I was recently on "Key and Peele" season finale for their second season as the Bikini Girl, check out the hilarious sketch:

So, "Wassup En LA" was shy 15k from our fundraising goal. However, the producers are working on another way to get extra funding for the project. This show is amazing and we will get this project going so continue to have faith and patience! Please stay connected with us at our FB page and LIKE us!

The project "Release" that I've been cast in is also working on a fundraiser campaign so I will keep you all updated on it once it is launched.

You all remember the superhero project I did called "Real Heroes LA," right? Well, our fundraising campaign was not successful so the film's release date will be pushed back to 2014. On a brighter note, we were invited to speak at "Bent-Con 2012" and it was a great turnout! The audience were receptive to the webisodes of my amazing sidekicks! Check them out here:

Thank you all for tuning in, keep checking back for more updates! Happy Holidays everyone, XOXO Keila!
