#Curlista: Top Bun Curlista

Beauties words can not express how happy and excited I am that summer weather is finally here. If you've been following me over the years I'm sure you've read more than a few posts were I express my disdain for all things winter and continuously harp on my love of all things summer! One of the things I love most about this time of year is being able to sport wash and go looks and one of my  all time fav's is the curly top bun. In fact, I have to be honest, it's really my daily go to hairstyle this time of year. The curly top bun is one of those hairstyles that just works for me. It literally goes with any look. It can take me from chic and sophisticated for meetings to bohemian and carefree.

How I Style My Curly Top Bun:
To prepare my curls for a curly top bun I start off by saturating my curls with water in the shower. Next I wrap my wet curls in an old t-shirt to absorb the excess water. You also use a towel if you do not have a t-shirt. When the excess water is absorbed I take one of our whipped body butters, Mango-go is my fav this time of year because it reminds of all things tropical and summer. Next I make sure each section receives a healthy coating of our body butter to seal in moisture. Now that my curls are thoroughly moisturized I take a boar bristle brush and smooth my edges and gather my curls on top of my head for my curly bun.

How do you rock your curly top bun?

#BeautyGeek: Beauty of Lemon, Honey & Sugar

Beauties did you know lemon, honey and sugar when paired together can remove blackheads! Well I sure didn't and to be honest, as much as I love all things natural especially when it come to beauty, I didn't think it would be effective so I never paid it much attention. But I kept running into recipes everywhere online touting the amazing results people received when they used lemon and honey to remove blackheads. So I finally gave in and decided to give it a try for myself. Hey growing up my sister didn't call me a test rabbit for nothing. She always said "when it comes to hair and skincare you will try anything". I tried it and I was truly amazed at the immediate results! It actually removed my blackheads. Well, most of them. Believe me when I tell you I had plenty of them all over my nose. There were a few remaining blackheads on the right side of my nose and I believe that was because I didn't scrub hard enough in that area. It was a bit ackward getting into those corner crevices with lemon. But, overall I must say I'm pleased with the results. Ive tried honey and lemon masks plenty of times and they are great for brightening and hydrating my skin. But I never tried exfoliating with it.

So here's why these posts are titled #BeautyGeek. This is where I give you a break down of how and why the featured product or treatment works.

Ingredients: Half a Lemon, Honey, Demerara Sugar

How It Works...
I took half of a lemon and gently squeezed it to release some of its natural juices. Next I dipped it in honey, then into the sugar. I rubbed the honey, lemon and sugar mixture all over my nose for about five minutes. Next, I let the mixture sit on my face for twenty minutes. I believe leaving the mixture on for five minutes would be enough, however, I tend to go to the extreme so I left it on for twenty minutes before rinsing with cold water.

Why It Works...
 The acidic juices of the lemon in combination with honey creates a soft and hydrating environment for the skin making it ideal for exfoliating. As the mixture is worked into the skin the sugar gently exfoliates lifting and removing blackheads. After a few minutes of exfoliating, the mixture will sit on the nose for 5-15 minutes. The acid from the lemon will continue to penetrate the skin removing excess dirt and debris allowing any remaining blackheads that were not removed during the  exfoliating process to be washed away as you rinse rinse with cool water to close the pores.

Beauties if you give this beauty treatment a try please be sure to let us know how it worked for you.

Nidasii Beauty: Why Curlista's Moisturize With Our Whipped Body Butters

Hey Beauties warm weather season is finally here and that means Curlista's can finally wash and go without the fear of catching pneumonia. As for me I'm an easy breezy kind of girl so most days during this time of year I start my day  by wetting or co-washing my hair in the shower. Then I blot my hair with a towel to absorb the excess water. Next I apply one of our whipped body butters usually Mango-go this time of year because it gives my hair the best fragrance and the aroma always reminds me of summer. It also helps that our body butters are whipped to a smooth and creamy mousse consistency because it absorbs into the hair follicles rather than sit on top of the hair shaft causing it to appear dull as well as cause residue build up. Next, I usually divide my hair into four sections and apply our whipped body butter to each section to ensure each section is properly moisturized. Once each section has been moisturized the only thing left to do is leave my hair out or pull all my juicy coils into a top knot bun, which happens to be my go to look most spring/summer days.

Curlista's have you tried moisturizing your coils with our body butters? If you have be sure to let us know your regimen.

Nidasii Beauty Getaway Weekend

Hey Beauties!! We're finally back to blogging. There's been a lot going on behind the scenes here at Nidasii with all the new products and fragrances we're preparing to launch for summer. But, enough about that stuff. I have some incredibly exciting news. We're planning a Nidasii Beauty Getaway weekend! Everytime I think about it I have the biggest grin on my face. In April of 2015 we're planning to escape to a tropical location like Cancun Mexico for a weekend of exotic beauty treatments and discussions on how we can continue to beautify ourselves from the inside out. If next winter turns out to be anything like this past winter I'm sure we all will be ready for an island escape. And, of course it would not be an official Nidasii Beauty Getaway without a Delux Beauty Bag stuffed with some of our products available exclusively to the beauty boutiques and spas we partner with. Not to mention tons of other incredibly decadent items. If you would like to join us on this weekend getaway please feel free to leave us a comment below!

We're going to reveal more information in the weeks to come. We hope your just as excited as we are!!

Nidasii News: Happy New Year & Beauty News

Happy New Year Beauties!! I know I'm three days late on that greeting, but, I figure I'm still in the safe zone of the first seven days of the new year. Who can believe another year has come and gone? I was just joking with a friend of mine that as I get older the years seem to get shorter. Do you have the same feeling? All jokes aside 2013 was a roller coaster year we had major triumphs and a few minor fails that we've learned from.

2014 is a milestone year for our company and we have so many special events and products planned for this year. Last year we realized we were stuck in a rut and spent the last six months developing new ways to re-connect with our Beauties. We asked for and listened to all your feed back. We need to go back to the essence of how our company first started out by hosting intimate events. We love creating intimate experiences for our Beauties. In fact our next Beauty Experience will be in February if you would like to join us be sure to sign up here. Just in time for Valentines day you will experience decadent body treats exclusively for the attendees of this event.  Not to mention the our luscious mani/pedi menu. Be sure to reserve your spot seating will be limited.
