Switching Up The Hair Game with LaCoupe.



When it comes to my hair….I’m EXTREMELY particular.

Like, from my hairstylists to the products I use. I may be bias, but I seriously do have the best hairstylist team IN. THE. WORLD. No seriously, if you need a change, you need to go see Jessi & Joanna at OnarĂ© Salon. They are bawse babes and really know what they’re doing.

Point is, I don’t mess with my hair. The people who cut/colour it are LEGIT. And the products I use, are AMAZING.

Dealing with curly hair is a whole other beast. You people with straight hair have it EASY-PEASY! I think? Curly hair takes a shit ton of time and effort to make it look like you haven’t just woken up from a nap and showed up to work….

You know? (Check out how I style my hair, here.)

There are lots of products involved. Lots of hot tools, hairsprays, curl creams, frizz-control serums, etc.

All these can be super damaging to your hair. Especially those hot tools.



Which is why, when it comes to caring for my curls, I’m so particular. I don’t just use any kind of shampoo/conditioner. It has to make sense, you know?

Because I colour my hair, the shampoo/conditioner I use, has to be colour-protected, it also needs to be good for curly hair, volume, and most IMPORTANTLY, natural! You guys know how much I love anything and everything that’s natural.

The less ingredients, the better!

So when I heard about LaCoupe’s ORGNX Babassu collection, I HAD to try it out for myself.

Let me tell you about the collection:

The shampoo/conditioner duo are SUPER hydrating, full of natural ingredients like babassu & moringa oil, shea better, vitamin B5, and biotin for extra moisture and protection. It’s also got antioxidants B5 and B7 for healthy, shiny and fuller-looking hair.

And if that’s not enough to convince you, it’s also sulfate free, paraben free, and of course, colour safe.


Because I get a lot of products sent to me, I try out A LOT of different things. I’ve mentioned this to you guys before… it’s always good to switch up your products. This goes for your face, your body, and your hair. You don’t want to get used to using just ONE kind of brand. Switching it up is important.

So, I started using this collection about a month ago, and I can already tell the difference after a few washes.

FULL DISCLOSURE here, I only wash my hair once a week. (Sometimes I’ll even leave it for like 8/9 days). Anything more than that, is damaging to my hair. It dries it out, and honestly, it’s not very healthy to wash your hair too often. So when it gets towards the end of the week, I just put it up in a bun and let the oils do its thing. LOL. #DirtyHairDontCare.

I also recently cut my hair. Like, CHOPPED IT. Huge change for me, as I’ve had long hair pretty much my entire life. And now….it’s short.

To be very honest, I needed a change in scenery AND………….

….my ends were f*cked. They were SO dry and brittle from all the hot tools that no amount of coconut oil hair masks could save it. So, I decided to cut it all off and start fresh. New ends, new shampoo/conditioner collection, NEW ME. Lol…

Except styling short hair is a bitch and I’m still working on perfecting it.

So, since cutting my hair short, and switching over to this new line of shampoo/conditioner, I feel like my hair has restored itself a bit. It’s looking super healthy, it feels soft and flowy, and because the products are natural, I just know it’s doing great things for my hair.

Trust me, if you're ready to throw in the towel and chop off all your hair because it's dry and brittle, try the new LaCoupe ORGNX line! You will LOVE.

It also smells like a Caribbean vacation in my shower. There's just something about the smells of coconut that makes you want to go on vacation...no?

Okay, your turn. Tell me there's someone else out there washing their hair once a week?! I CAN'T be the only one...

Also, share some of your hair tips when it comes to dry/brittle hair. What are you guys using?

I'm off. Tonight's dinner was a bowl of broccoli and spinach. No time for anything special. :/
