The Perfect No Heat Spiral Bantu Knot Out [VIDEO]

Have you ever wanted to try Bantu Knots? Well I always did, but for some reason I noticed that I always saw better results on hair that was flat-ironed, blow dried or sat under a hair dryer for an unprecendented amount of time.

Well, I personally hate sitting under a dryer (I have no patience) and I'm not big on flat ironing or blow drying my hair. So I decided to do things in a way that made me feel comfortable with the style. Something that would for sure not result in the damage of my hair -which heat can sometimes cause if used too frequently. Continue below to see how I stretched my hair and the video demonstration of how I did my Bantu Knot Out!

Revlon Spring/Summer Releases! Plus NEW Super Lustrous Lipgloss shades & formula!

While racking up on some of my favorite drugstore products I noticed Revlon had some new release. They also had some new Super Lustrous Lipglosses, in a new package. My biggest concern was is the formual going to be the same ... And it wasn't. But is that good or bad?

So I'm pretty sure you have all seen the infamous Drake Dada pictures on instagram or your twitter feed. Everyone has found some picture to copy and paste Drake and his Dada outfit, and almost all of them have been hilarious. Well Drake himself has finally addressed the issue ... By posting a picture of one himself on his instagram lol. Always cool to see a person not take theirself TOO serious and make a joke at their own expense. Never be "too famous" to clown yourself. Good job Drake, stay humble :). Now let's put this to rest!

But guess what?

Check out more of Drake and some of the funniest Dada pictures on Instagram below. I'm sure you'll find yourself laughing lol :

I will begin filming tutorials next week. They should begin to be uploaded/released on my youtube channel on June 1st.  My channel link is listed below as well as other places you can find me.
Youtube Channel:


This is not a beauty blog ... This is not a hair blog ... THIS IS A SAMIRAH BLOG.

Meet me. I'm Samirah. I wanted to start fresh and go into this thing whole heartedly. I wanted to do things on my terms completely. I don't want to be categorized. I want to make my own category. I don't want to be a natural hair blogger/vlogger, beauty blogger/vlogger, fashion blogger/vlogger, music blogger/vlogger, none of that. I want to be a Samirah blogger/vlogger. I don't want this blog or my channel to consist of only beauty, fashion, or music content, because my concerns and life doesn't consist of only those things. I'm living a real life and I have real goals that span beyond the next lipstick to drop or new hairstyle. Beauty is just something I delve in because it allows me to be creative. It's artistic. You can manipulate hair or use make up and turn something that was once nice into something some may consider AMAZING; with colors, shapes etc. But this blog and my channel will not only be here for that kind of art and it will not only be here for music or fashion either, although I love music more than anything. It will be here for the art of life. You paint your own picture, and this will be me painting mine.

I want to share my experiences and help you along the way by sharing them. Whether it be a cosmetic product or a life lesson/experience I am going through. This blog and my channel will consist of everything life. Struggles, successes, things I need advice on, etc. I will turn to you as friends and if you want you can do the same. STOP THE TRACK ! LET ME STATE FACTS ... I will not tolerate someone telling me what to do. Please avoid doing that. I don't think anyone has to right to tell another adult what to do. Suggestions are nice, demands and disrespectful behavior can get you popped hahaha ...

Well hope you enjoy the blog. I will be posting lots of things on here. Hope my content sparks interest in all of you!
