Kreativ Blogger Award!!!!

Thursday, November 26, 2009


I was awarded the Kreativ Blogger Award by Chanel of Hip Candy and Kenn of Swagger Style!!!

1. List 7 things that you don’t already know about me.
2. Name 7 other blogs to receive this award.
3. Leave a comment on each of the blogs I nominated
4. Thank the person who gave you the award.

So first, the 7 things you may not know about me:

1) I was named after my grandmothers...Jamie ( Ida Jane) and my middle name is La'Tina ( Modestine)

2)I hate Chapstick, lip balm...any lip moisturizer...makes my mouth feel GREASY...yuck.

3) I only apply lipstick or lip gloss once day, the first time I put it on. When it wears off, I don't reapply. It feels funny when I do.

4) I'm seriously very uninteresting but everyone thinks I'm the live entertainment when I'm around. I swear I've been invited to parties and get togethers for that reason only. Then people get mad when I'm sitting back chillin. I'm not your personal clown. Get a personality!!

5) I'm very quick to cut people off. Even after years of friendship. Even blood. So what. If you make no sense in my life then you gots to go. I'm not 18 and I don't need a million friends or family members holding me back from happiness.

6) I'm a former pageant girl!!! Yep, did couple of years of show pageantry( no talent, all looks) then I set my eyes on some scholarship money pageantry. I liked it, actually. My mother hated it. If I had a little girl, I would let her do pageants only if she wanted.

7) My greatest wish as a parent is to be supportive and open. I never want my boys to think that they can't come to me to talk. I never want them to think that they can't be what they want to be. My parents were/are products of segregation and the Deep South mentality. I could only be a teacher, a doctor, or lawyer but only if I was smarter than the white kids I went to school with. I never want the Bruhs to be limited in thought and passion. I also want them to know that I got their back. There have been many of days that I know my parents didn't have mine just because I wasn't doing what they wanted me to. That's hard reality when you are 10,19,23, 26, 0r 32.

Rural Glamour Reviews...Nu Gro Products....

After using the Conditioner, Oil Free Spray, and Moisterizer for 30 days...I 've a review on Nu Gro...purchased by me at my local BSS....enjoy!



Nu Gro Reviews:

Nu-Gro Conditioner $4.39 ( my BSS)

Pros:

-I liked the smell. Sweet, garlicy

- looks wholesome, very natural with its texture and herbs

Cons:

- Watery, you have to shake it up every time you used it

- Too light for a deep conditioner

- The garlic smell might be too much for some

Consensus:

There better drugstore conditioners. Its softens, of course its does, that’s what conditioners do. I wasn’t impressed.

Nu-Gro Super Hair Oil ( $5.99)

Pros:

-full of herbs. The ingredient list is impressive except the first ingredient is Petroleum.

-lot of product in a jar. I used it for 30 days and got over half the jar left

Cons:

-Strong garlic smell but has a fake underlining sweet fragrance smell

-greasy. Its basically grease. I wasn’t comfortable putting it on my scalp

Consensus:

This product would be great if it was a loose oil that had to be shaken or if it mixed with shea butter instead of petroleum OR a spray oil. See? I could reinvent this product for Nu Gro

Nu Gro Hair Gro Spray-Oil Free ( $4.39)

Pros:

- a light spray. With a Oil it would be a great water based moisturizer.

- Spray convenience is great

Cons:

-The 2nd ingredient is Isopropyl Alcohol. What? Why. Why make a oil free spray that potentially drying….I don’t understand

-However, it does have oils… Jojoba, Olive, Safflower. Confused yet?

-Lasted approximately 30 days. I used it once a day and ran out on day 30.

Consensus:

-I would actually buy this again. They make a Spray with Oil. The smell of garlic is strongest in this product.

ConclusionJ

I found that separately, the Nu Gro products I used are not worth a damn. But used together as a regimen….it actually works. My hair took a turn in two weeks. It got so thick so quick that I actually had to move my 20 wks trim I planned up to 18 wks. My new growth and relaxed ends got to be too much. My hair actually grew. Even my left side temple, that has been thin for years, filled in more than has in years. The right temple side did not grow as well. I believe my hair loss on that temple is permanent from years of relaxers on my very fragile sides.

I choose to skip buying the shampoo because I didn’t like the reviews I read on it. I didn’t want to waste my money. However I might review it later. I’ve actually moved on to a new regimen. I liked how all the products worked together but I’m perplexed on them individually, leaving me very confused. Lol!.
