Get Ready with Me: Back to Blogging

It’s been a minute since I’ve sat down to record a video or even write a blog post. Back in November, I decided to take a break from blogging to focus on some other goals I wanted to accomplish. I told myself I needed to just get through the holidays then I’d start back blogging and creating content in the new year. Well, 2022 hit and impostor syndrome hit me hard. It kinda felt good to not have to record, edit, and write so often. I started getting in my own head about creating content. Honestly, I started to feel like my blogging days were over. If I’m being honest I’d lost my reasons why I started blogging in the first place. I took some time to re-discover my “why”.

Now, I’m back and happy to introduce … Curls of the Party!

Make It Classy Shampoo Bar First Impressions

Hey Passionista! 

Okay so, I’ve never tried a shampoo bar before receiving this product. Honestly, I thought shampoo bars were more of a “white girl thing”. But now my opinions have changed. I’m glad I got the opportunity to try it and discover something new that Queenie P loves. 

If you are new here, Queenie P. is my hair. She has her own personality. Sometimes we are the best of friends and other times she likes to piss me off and make me cry. 

I recently received the newest products from Make It Classy in a PR package and I was excited to try the plant based Sassy Sloane Shampoo Bars. It’s rare that I come across a product I’ve not tried before. So when I get my hands on something new I’m excited to try it at least once.

My First Impression 

I’m going to be honest, when I first received the product I was like, “oh, this ain’t going to work for me.” But so far I’ve used it 3 times to wash my hair. Paired with the right conditioner, it’s become one of my favorite shampoos to use on wash day. I love the ease and convenience of having a hand held shampoo bar to prevent spilling shampoo and slipping in the shower. You don’t know how many times I’ve bust my ass in the shower just trying to clean Queenie P. The label does warn you about getting the product in your eye, but I’m thinking it’s a plant based product… it can’t do too much damage. Oh baby! I was sadly mistaken. Using the product for the first time I messed around and got some product in my eye while shampooing and it was awful. The hair wash experience was downhill from there. I was annoyed and didn’t plan on ever using the shampoo bar again. But Queenie P has other plans…

Queenie P’s Reaction 

There was a softer than normal feel about my curls after washing and conditioning. Without too much hassle the shampoo bar lathers really well. I’ve been pairing the shampoo bar with my Aussie Conditioner because I’ve mainly been doing wash n go styles. Amazingly, Quenie P responded well to the plant based shampoo bar. I worried about whether my scalp would really get clean by using a shampoo bar. Honestly, my scalp feels more clean when I use the shampoo bar over regular shampoo. With the bar I am able to apply the shampoo to lather directly on my scalp. 

Final Thoughts

Now, I have to come up with a in shower hair wash method to make sure I never get this product in my eyes again. I think I’m hooked on shampoo bars now. I need the shampoo bars to come with a little storage accessory. Some type of tin or container to store the bar in when it is not being used.
