Treatment :: Karen’s Body Beautiful Secret Weapon Restorative Hair Treatment

Hey there :o)

OK I have finally tried and reviewed ALL the products from Karen’s Body Beautiful that are available in select Target stores NOW! The last review is on the Secret Weapon Restorative Hair Treatment which retails for $25 for 4 oz and $38 for 8 oz on KBB’s site and also on CurlMart 4 oz for $25. YES I know, I know, KBB’s price point is a bit on the high side BUT you really are paying for what you get, high quality, all-natural, consistency in results and a little goes a long way. I’ve mentioned in the past that I was an avid user of the Sweet Ambrosia, it was something I ALWAYS made sure I saved up for and my hair was probably the healthiest it had ever been (that was back in 2008). It’s definitely worth the investment. Oh and if you missed my other posts on KBB product experiences, check them out below:

The thing I LOVE most about KBB (besides the fact that her products are all natural and work phenomenally well AND consistently) is that there is literally a product for EVERY need that a natural may have. You know how we have SO many steps, rituals and practices in maintaining our hair, and KBB recognizes that and literally has a product for every step of the way. It makes being natural really easy if you hate having to search around for different products or if you don’t like mixing up a bunch of different things. KBB already has it covered for you!

Now,I don’t mean that KBB’s products are like a “system” where its like Step 1, Step 2, Step 3, I mean that there is a product for every need and hair type i.e. moisture, spritzer, sealing, hold, treatment, pre-poo, condition, scalp, etc. etc. I also love that some of her products have multiple uses, not just what’s indicated on the labels. PLus they all work really well together so you can mix and match! It’s just an extremely well-rounded line of products and you can clearly tell the KBB listens to what us naturals need, how we use our products and I am sure she uses her own stuff on herself! I just love it! :o) ….and now you can buy all this right down the street from Target! #winning :o)

But ok, let’s stay focused lol back to the Secret Weapon Restorative Hair Treatment….

Description
Karen’s Body Beautiful Secret Weapon Restorative Hair Treatment is a velvety textured deep conditioning pre-shampoo treatment that strengthens, repairs and restores tresses. Filled with Argan, Carrot Seed, Aloe Vera Oils, Pygeum, Nettle, & Saw Palmetto Extracts and Rosemary & Rose Otto Essential Oils.

Melt Secret Weapon in your palms. Thoroughly massage into hair and scalp. Leave in hair for at least 20 minutes or even overnight (wear a shower cap). Shampoo and condition. Use weekly

Ingredients
Palm Oil, Lecithin, Argan Oil, Vegetable Wax, Citric Acid, Vitamin C & E, Aloe Vera Oil, Pygeum & Saw Palmetto Extracts, Stevia, Silica, Rosemary & Carrot Seed Essentials Oils, Biotin, Nettle & Rose Otto Essential Oil. Glycerin Free. Paraben Free. Silicone Free. Sulfate Free. Protein Free

This product is really unique to me. I have never seen a pre-made product intended for pre-shampooing (see, this is what I mean by KBB has a product for everything a natural already does!). Most pre-poo treatments I’ve ever done or hear others talk about are just applying oil on their hair and sleeping with a plastic cap overnight. So this takes that practice to another level. You still get the benefits of the oils but this contains other enhancing ingredients like the stevia, silica, biotin and all those delectable essential oils :o) It is unscented which kind of saddened me because you know I love KBB’s scents. Oh well :o)

I apply this creamy, emollient treatment the night before wash day on dry hair. It surprisingly has a lot of slip so I didn’t have to go overboard on the application. I leave my hair in about 4 sections, pin them down close to my head (for comfort sleeping), place a shower cap on, then my scarf over the plastic and go to bed. The next day, I rinse out the treatment, wash and condition regularly. I really, really like how strong my hair feels after this treatment! You can definitely tell that it penetrates your strands. I didn’t have as many snap, crackles and pops after my hair was dry!

This is definitely a higher end product and my hair is pretty healthy at this point (by the grace of God and good hair practices!) so I don’t think I would buy this regularly but I definitely would consider treating myself to this maybe 1-2x a year to give my hair a strengthening boost. If you are trying to recover your hair from damage from maybe heat or color (or even relaxer!) and trying to nourish it back to health, this may work wonders for you :o)

Cream : : Karen’s Body Beautiful Super Duper Hydrating Hair Cream

Cream : : Karen’s Body Beautiful Super Duper Hydrating Hair Cream

Hey!! I hope you guys have entered the giveaway  Check out my post celebrating my one year blog anniversary from the other day :o)

I’m back with another produce experience from my Karen’s Body Beautiful gift box I received awhile back! This is another product I have never tried from KBB and it’s the Super Duper Hydrating Hair Cream. It’s exactly what the title says it is, it is simply a cream that hydrates your hair! It retails for 6.7 oz for $16 on KBB’s website (yes, you can select your fav scent!) and also for the same price on CurlMart in the lavender vanilla scent. Mine is the vanilla latte scent which is alright, not my fav, but it smells pretty and sweet :o)

Description
Karen’s Body Beautiful Super Duper Hydrating Hair Cream is an intensely hydrating hair cream and dressing that also moisturizes and nourishes the scalp. Filled with Shea Butter, Aloe Vera Gel, Argan Oil and Acai Powder. Use twice a week on hair and scalp or as needed. Work best on dry or slightly damp hair

Ingredients
Shea Butter, Aloe Vera Gel, Argan Oil, Allantoin, Lecithin, Potassium Sorbate, Acai powder, Vegetable Wax, Vegetable Glycerin, Essential and/or Fragrance Oils & Vitamin E. Glycerin Free.  Protein Free. Silicone Free. Sulfate Free

This cream is actually rather thick, almost like a butter (it doesn’t contain water but is no where near as solid as the Butter Love) but it definitely has a creamy, almost whipped, kind of texture and is very emollient. It applies smooth and absorbs quickly and isn’t greasy. I was very attracted to it because of the aloe vera gel which always makes my hair really shiny! (remember the Bee Mine Bee Holed Curly Butter?!)

My first instinct when trying out new hair products that are creams or butters is to use them for twist-outs, I say that because I don’t think this is the best product for twist-outs. I guess I could have figured that out by actually following what the product description says lol BUT of course, I used it for a twist-out anyway :o)

So, I always start my fresh twist-outs on damp hair but it was kind of a challenge with this cream because on the KBB site, it says the cream works best on dry or slightly damp hair and KBB is obviously right. It didn’t apply well on wet hair, it was like the cream disappeared as soon as I applied it so I felt like I had to keep putting more and more on. I realized it’s better on dryer hair when I reached the parts of my hair that were not as damp. Since the cream contains a high content of aloe vera (a humectant), I wanted my hair to be somewhat damp just so the aloe could pull the moisture in my hair.

The results of my twist-out were ok (nothing like my beloved KBB Sweet Ambrosia!!!), it did not provide much hold because I had to re-twist my hair each night that week. BUT It did in fact do what it is supposed to do—moisturize my hair! The aloe vera and shea butter helped seal in the moisture and made my hair super shiny! The argan oil could also contribute to the shininess as well. For those with high porosity hair, this contains BOTH aloe vera and glycerin, both of which are humectants.

But on the flip side, I feel like I just didn’t use this product for it’s intended purpose. I can say that it is GREAT if your hair is feeling dry to the touch and you need a quick moisture boost throughout the week. If you need to refresh a wash-n-go, warm this up in your hands and smooth it all over your hair. I also used this to moisturize my hair under my EcoStyler gel that I used when I did a puff that week, since EcoStyler can be somewhat drying to me if I use it too much. I alternate it with my KBB Hold It Hair Gel :o)

Another use I plan to use this is on my scalp because of the wonderful aloe vera which is actually really, really good for your scalp and hair loss. ***NOTE: I have not yet used this on my scalp because I am currently using my Bee Mine Growth Serum on my scalp and I don’t want anything to interfere with the one month results of that :o)

So check out the results of my twist-out. Again, I wasn’t really able to get more than 1 day hair from using this but then again, its not intended to be used as a styler. By the end of the day my hair was poofy but it was moisturized, soft and shiny! lol

Howdy!526836_10151421865251170_1391966457_n

Coming to you with another product experience with the aboslute wonderful product line from Karen’s Body Beautiful. Yup, this one is in Target stores too! All the products from the gift box I received from KBB will be sold in Target! In case you missed the ones I’ve reviewed so far, check them out here: Sweet Ambrosia, Butter Love, Hold It Gel w/Argan Oil.

KBB finally posted a list of Target stores that will carry these on their Facebook Page. I also noticed the release date is now March 18, not February as I mentioned in previous posts. Oh well, it’s definitely worth the wait!

***SIDEBAR — I also just saw as I am typing this (it’s Friday, Feb 15) that KBB, for a limited time, brought back some of the retired scents that I used to love back in the day!!! (coco lime, coconut fig and luscious pear are TO DIE for!) I wonder if she saw my plea to bring them back lol. Sadly, I won’t be buying any this time :o( since I need to use up what I have first. HOPEFULLY, she will run this special again!! ***wink** :o)

Ok so let me tell you about the Hair Blossom Moisture Mist. It retails on the KBB site for $16 for 7.1 oz of product and the same on CurlMart. Mine is the juicy smelling Pomegranate Guava.

Product Description
Karen’s Body Beautiful Hair Blossom Moisture Mist contains nourishing oils and extracts to moisturize your hair as it refreshes curls.

Product Description
Aloe barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Gel, Water (Aqua), Simmondsia chinensis (Jojoba) Oil, Persea gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Panthenol, Prunus amygdalus dulcis (Amica) Extract, Calendula officinalis (Calendula) Extract, Echinacea angustifolia (Echinacea) Extract, Urtica dioica (Nettle) Extract, Equisetum (Horsetail) Extract, Glycerin, Stearic Acid, Argania spinosa (Argan) Oil, Limnanthes alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Helianthus annus (Sunflower) Oil, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Oil, Fragrance (Parfum), Potassium Sorbate, and Vitamin E (Tocopherol).

karens_body_beautiful_hair_blossom_moisture_mist

This mist spray is PERFECT for when you are twisting or re-twisting your hair. I use this to dampen and moisturize my hair before I twist it back up for the night. It’s got an amazing mixture of oils and extracts along with my beloved aloe vera and since its water-based, this will definitely moisturize your hair which is why I love to use it before I do my twists because the shea/oil based products I use seal in the moisture from the Hair Blossom Mist. So in essence, this is an alternative to my usual spritzer mixes. Besides it providing moisture, it also helps soften my hair which I find helps my twist-outs become more defined the next day. This contains glycerin and aloe which are both humectants. If you wear your hair in a wash-n-go style, this is a great way to refresh your curls and provide some moisture.

I have two more products from KBB to share with you guys so keep checking back! Byeeee for now!

Gel : : Karen’s Body Beautiful Hold It Hair Gel with Argan Oil

Gel : : Karen’s Body Beautiful Hold It Hair Gel with Argan Oil

My love affair with Karen’s Body Beautiful continues….

Next up, the Hold It Hair Gel with Argan Oil! This is one of KBB’s products that I have never tried until I received my gift box from KBB so I was super excited to give it a go. Yup, it will be sold in Target this month! Check out KBB’s Facebook page often to see if they will be sold in your local Target :o) I imagine the price will be the same as it is on their site, $16 for 8 oz. and the same on CurlMart in the Lavender Vanilla scent. Mine is the Vanilla Latte scent which smells yummiful!!

karens_body_beautiful_hold_it_gel karens_body_beautiful_hold_it_gel2 karens_body_beautiful_hold_it_gel3

Description
Karen’s Body Beautiful Hold It Hair Gel defines hair and provides flexible hold to maintain styles without hardness or a crunchy after-feel. With Argan, Aloe Vera and Marula Oils and Hydrolyzed Silk Protein. Creates a natural finish with a flexible hold. Works best for kinky, curly or relaxed hair.

Ingredients
Water (Aqua), Argania spinosa (Argan) Oil, Sodium Carboxymethylcellulose (Cellulose Thickener), Panthenol, Aloe barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Oil, Sclerocarya birrea (Marula) Oil, Hydrolyzed Silk Protein, Fragrance (Parfum), Citric Acid, and Silver Citrate.Glycerin Free. Paraben Free. Silicone Free. Sulfate Free

As you may know, I don’t wear my hair in wash-n-go’s much and when I do, I typically use gel products like this, this and this, so I immediately think “wash-n-go” when I see gels BUT I remembered I asked a curlfriend on Instagram how she made her edges look so tailored and pretty…she said gel!! So I was like BINGO!! That’s what I am going to use this for!! She said she uses eco-styler but I have found that if I use that too much it dries out my hair which usually mean breakage for me PLUS I am on a mission to nourish/grow out my edges so I am real cautious about what I do to them BUT I know KBB’s ingredients are all natural and actually nourishing to your hair so I figured this would be great for taming my unruly edges. My edges are not cute and whispy like Chili from TLC lol they are thick, and I feel make my hair look a lil untidy and rough at times lol. But the Hold It gel really helps make them look “cleaner”. My edges are more defined, lay flat and actually follow a pattern rather than make my face look like its being eaten up by a hairy monster lol. I just apply a little as I twist my hair up at night and tie a scarf over my twists. The scarf helps “set” my edges in place. I find that it holds better when you apply it on damp hair. I don’t have any flaky or white residue either! It has a little crunch, but the good kind of crunch…the kind that keeps your hair in place! The Argan oil makes your hair really shiny!

Check out the flicks below. Sorry for the EXTREME close-up of my fivehead lol just focus on the edges….the edges!!

karens_body_beautiful_hold_it_gel

karens_body_beautiful_hold_it_gel1

So after I discovered how well this held down my edges, I became bold and put the gel to test……THE PUFF! If a gel can hold my hair in a puff, then it’s official and has won the battle over my hair lol! And guess what? It did!! The only time I can wear my hair in a puff is if I slick it back with a gel like eco-styler (again, I don’t like to use it too much because it dries my hair out at times) but now I can use the Hold It Gel!

On an old twist-out, I spritzed the outer part of my hair to soften and dampen it make my hair easier to work with as well as making the gel “set” better as it dries. I then applied the gel all around and brush my hair back using a boar bristle smoothing brush. Then I use TWO elastic headbands (Goody brand) and wrap it around twice.

Now the ESSENTIAL part for me to achieve a nice slicked back puff is I snuggly tie a scarf around the slicked back part to set my hair in place until the gel is somewhat dry (usually 30 mins or so; the amount of time it takes me to do my makeup, brush my teeth, etc). That’s what works for me because my hair is super thick. I am not sure if anyone else has to do that or if that’s normal lol but I gotta do it otherwise it looks messy and unkept (unless that’s the look I’m going for).

So with all that said, check out the puff below! I’m so excited how big my puff is now :o) It makes me feel regal since it kind of looks like a crown. I really like wearing my hair like this hehe. oh and these pics are actually at the end of the 2nd day after I applied the gel (I forgot to take pics on the first day) so my edges look a teeny bit less slick than they did the first day. At night, I just took out the headbands and snuggly tied the scarf around my head. In the morning, I just put the headbands back in and that’s it! I love this style because it’s easy, cute and it can last for like 2 weeks if you really want to push it :o)karens_body_beautiful_hold_it_gel1 karens_body_beautiful_hold_it_gel2 karens_body_beautiful_hold_it_gel3 karens_body_beautiful_hold_it_gel4 karens_body_beautiful_hold_it_gel5

So I have discovered that this gel is multi-use and definitely an essential for me now as I can use it on my edges every time I do twist-outs. LOVE ME SOME KBB!!!

Butter :: Karen’s Body Beautiful Butter Love

Butter :: Karen’s Body Beautiful Butter Love

Howdy!

This is my 2nd product experience from the Karen’s Body Beautiful line of products that are now going to be sold in Target stores this month (Yaayyyy!!). In case you missed it, check out my experience with my top fav leave-in conditioner of all time… the Sweet Ambrosia here!

Ok this is all about the wonderful Butter Love. It’s literally a simple, lovely mixture of some of the best butters for hair! It comes in a 6.7 oz tub for $18. And YES if you order from the KBB site, you can pick which scent you want! Mine below is the Pomegranate Guava so it’s got a juicy, fruity tropical thing going on. KBB scents are never overbearing but linger in your hair for a couple days which I love :o)

karens_body_beautiful_butter_love karens_body_beautiful_butter_love2

Product Description
Made only from rich, thick butters and luxurious oils, Karen’s Butter Love conditions, softens and adds sheen to fragile, stressed hair. Great for thick hair. Use twice a week on hair and scalp or as needed.Works best on dry hair since wet hair generally doesn’t absorb butters and rich oils readily.

Ingredients
Shea Butter (Butyrospermum Parkii), Cocoa Butter (Theobroma Cacao) , Mango Butter (Mangifera Indica) , Jojoba Butter (Simmondsia Chinensis), Aloe Butter, Essential and/or Fragrance Oils (Parfum), Grapefruit Seed Oil (Citrus Paradisi) & Vitamin E (Tocopherol). Glycerin Free, Paraben Free, Protein Free, Silicone Free, Sulfate Free

If you check out the ingredients, you’ll see it’s literally a love swirl of butters! Its super thick and solid in the tub. I have to literally dig my fingers in it to scoop up the butter which isn’t an issue for me. It may soften a bit in warmer temperatures or in the summer but as soon as you rub it in between your fingers/hands it softens and you can then apply it. It’s not greasy or oily, its truly a solid butter with more of a waxy feel (but not in a bad way!). You can even use this on your skin :o)

When I first bought this years ago, I didn’t really know exactly what to do with plain, pure butters because I hadn’t really gotten into the 100% natural way of maintaining my hair so it kind of sat under my sink for awhile lol BUT as soon as I discovered the power of sealing your hair….this is GOLD to me! So ever since I have been using this to seal my ends. THICK butters are the best thing for sealing your ends. I also like to use this on parts of my hair that lose moisture the most like around my edges and the nape of my neck. I could use this as my main product to do twist-outs but I like to reserve it for sealing since I do that frequently. This is also good for holding down your edges when you apply it and tie a scarf over to “set” them or I use it to smooth my hair when I do a puff. It definitely doesn’t hold like gel does but it works if you  “set” your hair with a scarf to hold them edges down lol.

Check out the pictures below of my hair styled with the Sweet Ambrosia and the ends sealed with the Butter Love. When your ends are sealed, your curls should clump and be defined and the Butter Love really does that. If you look at my posts for the Sweet Ambrosia, I used the Butter Love in those pics too so check those out too.

karens_body_beautiful_butter_love karens_body_beautiful_butter_love2

If you’ve been looking for something to seal your ends with or just have a good, high-quality general use butter, this is good buy. The price point is a bit high but I’ve found the all the KBB products I’ve used last a really long time and plus with butters you don’t need to use a lot, especially when they are thick and dense like the Butter Love :o)

Leave-In Conditioner :: Karen’s Body Beautiful Sweet Ambrosia

Leave-In Conditioner :: Karen’s Body Beautiful Sweet Ambrosia

Happy Saturday! Ya’ll ready to watch the 49ers whoop some aaazzzzzzz tomorrow!? …you know you really just wanna see Beyonce lol smh

Did you catch the announcement from Karen’s Body Beautiful the other day?! Well if you haven’t heard, KBB will be sold in Target THIS month! I am very excited about this because I have been a huge, LONG time fan of her stuff (since ’08!) and my all-time fav product from KBB is the beloved Sweet Ambrosia (formerly known as Hair Milk) This is hands down my fav Leave-in conditioner to date. I LOVE how you can choose your scent (if you order directly from their website). It’s sold in two sizes, 7.1oz for $16 or 16 oz. for $24. You can get it in the Lavender Vanilla scent from CurlMart (and of course Target soon too!!) I received the lavender vanilla scent in my gift box from KBB. It smells very lush and yummy! It’s not heavy or over bearing, I smell more of the vanilla than the lavender but all the scents I’ve tried are really good…..even though some of my favs are discontinued :o( but the scent kind of lingers in your hair for a couple days which I love!

karens_body_beautiful_sweet_ambrosia_

karens_body_beautiful_sweet_ambrosia2

Product Description
You’re only a few dabs away from lush, radiant, soft hair. Sweet Ambrosia moisturizes, detangles and defines your tresses. Dry, super thick hair needs this amazing leave-in conditioner! Apply a generous amount to hair when damp or dry to refresh and moisturize. Can be used several times a week or daily. Use before you apply heat (flat ironing, blow drying, etc.).

Ingredients
Purified Water, Jojoba, Avocado and Coconut Oils, Vegetable Wax, Panthenol, Arnica, Calendula, Echinacea, Nettle & Horsetail Extracts, Vegetable Glycerin, Wheat Germ Oil, Essential and/or Fragrance Oil, Ascorbic Acid & Vitamin E. Paraben Free, Protein Free, Silicone Free, Sulfate Free

Ok so why do I love this stuff so much? Here’s why, it’s a smooth, milky cream which I’ve always used to do twist outs. It makes my hair SO soft, provides hold AND makes my hair feel like I virtually have nothing in my hair! It gives me those airy, bouncy curls. It’s a really unique product to me because I don’t really use liquid, milky, water base products for twist-outs because they usually don’t provide much hold and my hair always get frizzy. I usually have to use products that are thicker butters but THIS for some reason gives me awesome results AND hold! The only other product I’ve tried that came close to this is the Koils By Nature Moisturizing Shealoe Leave-in Conditioner.

My hair is so incredibly soft, almost buttery, frizz-free and there is virtually no residue or tack on my hair, so my hair is super light, not weighed down. I love this in the summer months when It is warm so my head stays a bit cooler lol. I apply this to damp hair and it has really great slip so it distributes well and CLUMPS my curls which I love! It really saturates my hair during application which is great because my hair is really thick yet it absorbs in my hair fairly fast so I don’t have to worry about my hair being damp the next morning. It makes detangling a BREEZE, I usually finger detangle as I do my twists and this just makes it so easy :o) The ingredients are amazing of course and I love that it contains horsetail and nettle extracts. It does contain glycerin but I never have issues with glycerin, in both humid and dry climates. This just gives me great hair all year round, every time I use it :o)

I have nothing negative to say about this product except perhaps the price point. Yes, it is in the higher price range but this has always been something I made sure I saved up for :o) I also always got the smaller size (7 oz it used to be 8 oz for some reason though…..) and it lasted a good while because you don’t need much. When this was the only product I used on my hair, my hair was SO healthy, it was so full of life, shiny and healthy, I really don’t know why I stopped using it to be honest lol ….adding it back in rotation for sure though!

Here’s my hair twisted ***Side Bar — I like to show how I part and twist my hair to you guys because I always wonder how other curlies make their hair fall a certain way…the key is how you part your hair and which direction you make the twists! I don’t like my hair in my face so I tend to twist my hair going back (it’s more comfortable to wear a scarf at night that way as well). I opted for the center part this time since my hair has become much stronger there and my scalp is no longer as tender :o)karens_body_beautiful_sweet_ambrosia1 karens_body_beautiful_sweet_ambrosia

Here’s the fresh untwisted, fluffed first day hair! First day hair is always a hit or miss for me, no matter what product I use (am I the only one this happens to??) but when I re-twist, it almost ALWAYS looks better to me.karens_body_beautiful_sweet_ambrosia4 karens_body_beautiful_sweet_ambrosia3 karens_body_beautiful_sweet_ambrosia8 karens_body_beautiful_sweet_ambrosia6 karens_body_beautiful_sweet_ambrosia7Here’s my hair the next day. I re-twisted my hair at night by spritzing my hair AND scalp with a tea mixture of horsetail, burdock, lemongrass, nettle and peppermint teas (yea I know that sounds OD lol but remember I started drinking these teas? Well I was feeling a bit creative lol and inspired by a reader who uses them in her spritzer as well hehe) and a little bit of coconut oil to seal in the moisture. I love that I don’t need to reapply the Sweet Ambrosia for the rest of the week. I just spritz and re-twist and my hair feels the same way every day. It’s just a really consistent product. Here’s the next day! (I like it better than the first day but my hair FELT GREAT on both days!)

I feel like these pics don’t do my hair justice, it looks a LOT better in person and FEELS even that much better! Trust me! But yes I love me some KBB Sweet Ambrosia and am so excited to be able to buy it on the ground soon! I have some more KBB products to share with you guys so staaaaaaaaaaaay tuned!

Karen’s Body Beautiful Will Be in Target Stores!!!!

Karen’s Body Beautiful Will Be in Target Stores!!!!

OK I have ANOTHER confession to make….(remember when I confessed about bentonite clay awhile back??)

…well I have been a HUGE fan of Karen’s Body Beautiful since 2008 and have been holding out on you guys lol just playing! well sort of lol

YES it is true, I have been in love with their Butter Love and Sweet Ambrosia for YEARS (they were actually called Hair Butter and Hair Milk!). Back then KBB only had like 5 products (she now has like 20 lol), the basic clear/white lid packaging with sticky labels and had more scents to choose from (I miss the coconut fig and the coco lime scents!!!!). I think I have literally tried almost every scent they offered and that was actually what got me really excited about her products back in the day hehe (I am a sucker for some yummy smelling hair!). I haven’t used KBB in over a year to be honest because I wanted to explore other products and see what else is out there…but I have learned that you always return back to “home” lol. Between 2008 and 2010 KBB was literally ALL I used on my hair and it was SO healthy and full of life…then the great depression (losing my mom) came over me and I really slacked off with my hair so that’s when I fell off BUT I have been a re-born fan BECAAAaaauusee…….

KAREN”S BODY BEAUTIFUL IS NOW GOING TO BE SOLD IN TARGET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

can you tell I’m excited?! lol

This makes me INCREDIBLY happy because there is nothing like being able to walk in a store you already frequent regularly and picking up your favorite products AND knowing that they are all natural, with the high quality ingredients, free of sulfates, parabens, phthalates, silicones and mineral oil! You guys, this is major lol I am not merely trying to hype this stuff up lol I really feel some kind of way about this lol. I have gotten so many comments about readers not being able to find good products on the ground…well ladies and gents, you can now! Target is doing it BIG when it comes to our natural hair community! Their natural hair product roster is quite impressive :o) (Remember when Shea Radiance hit the shelves to?! LOVE them as well!)

Ok so for the details, I don’t have an exact date of when they will hit shelves but it will be this upcoming February and they will offer six of their best selling products. I imagine they will hopefully post a list of participating Target stores on their website or Facebook page. The only semi-sad thing about buying KBB from Target is you don’t get to choose which scent you want lol that’s the fun part for me! But the products all work great regardless of the scent :o)
