Soapbox Coconut Oil Shampoo & Conditioner #SudsySelfie Review

Disclaimer: I tested these Soapbox products for free, but all opinions are my own.

For my first #voxbox, I received a full size sample of Soapbox Coconut Oil Shampoo & Conditioner from Influenster. I was a little skeptical when I received it because I had never heard of this brand. I was excited to try these products because it said it would leave my hair moisturized. Everyone who knows me know I have extremely dry hair. I have tried so may different shampoos and conditioners and nothing seems to work. Nonetheless, I remained optimistic during this experiment.Soapbox hair care products contain Vitamins E and K, and Coconut Oil. These products do not contain any sulfates or parabens. These products  as well as other Soapbox products can be purchased at Target or via Soapbox website. 

What I admired about this company/brand is their mission. For every bottle purchased, clean water, soap or vitamins will be donated to those in need all over the world.  On the back of each bottle is a "hope code". If you go to www.soapboxsoaps.com/hope and enter the code, you will be able to to track who your purchased helped.Although I received these products for free, I was interested in seeing whose lives have been blessed. Using the codes on the back of the shampoo and conditioner bottles, I was able to see since 2007, China's project is called the clean water project which has served over 90,000 children daily. Since 2012, India's project is called the clean water, hygiene education, and sanitation project which has also served over 17,000 children daily. Support their movement and and make a difference in another child's life.

The best way to describe the texture of the shampoo is creamy, silky and smooth. I loved the tropical smell of this product. However, due to my hair texture, I had to use a generous amount of the shampoo for it to lather nicely. Nonetheless, I would use this product again because it did not leave my hair feeling greasy or heavy. It left my scalp feeling squeaky clean and refreshed. 

I am on the fence about the conditioner. It was not the greatest nor was it the worst.The texture is creamy and very thick which I loved. However, the following day, my hair was looked dull, dry and brittle. It was also very difficult to detangle and manage my hair. I would not use the conditioner again, but I would definitely use the shampoo again. Overall, I  am glad I had the opportunity to try these products. You can try them too. If you head over to Influenster, you can obtain Soapbox Voxbox coupons  and save $2.00 off your purchase.

Who Do You Identify With In The Sea Of Life?

While attending Medgar Evers College , I was introduced to the worlds renowned author  Ms. Iyanla Vanzant . My public speaking professor began each class with a daily meditation from Acts of Faith which was authored by Ms. Vanzant. Eventually, I purchased this book and a few others. Years later, I continue to read the Acts of Faith. Photo Credit: RaisingBrownGirls While sitting at my desk, I turned to today's meditation and my eyes made it's way to the bottom of the page. The message stated "I know who I am in the sea of life." After reading it, I reversed it and asked myself two questions. "Do you know who you are in the sea of life?" "Who do you identify with in the sea of life?" My eyes scrolled back to the top of the page and I began to read today's daily meditation. As I am reading, I realize I have encountered almost every fish that was mentioned. This made me think about the people I have crossed paths with in the past,

A Rainbow of My Own

While sitting in the middle of my bed after waking up for the second time today, guess what I saw on my bedroom wall? A rainbow. Before you ask, no there was nothing in my window and there was nothing on my television stand that allowed any sort of reflection. I was baffled and amazed. Yet I continued to stare at it until it faded. I believe it was God's way of getting my attention. His way of communicating and relaying his message to me. There have been days when life seems to get the best of me. I have so much on my mind. It seems as though it is constantly racing. It never slows down or stop. As a result, I often have sleepless nights. There have been times when I wanted to give up which was the easiest thing to do. However, I know that quitting is never an option and not the example I want to set for my two brown girls. I know it is only because of God's grace that my strength grows and I can move forward. I often pray and talk to God. However, I have been prayin
