DevaCurl and Hair Loss (Warning Graphic Pictures)

I was on a full on Hair Care kick, around June of last year and purchased a ton of hair stuff online from Nordstrom (haulage here) including products from the brand DevaCurl which was “Curly Girl Method Approved”!

Shortly after, as if on cue, there was a scandal and a following lawsuit involving the brand. Apparently, DevaCurl products (allegedly) caused hair loss and hair damage and other hair-related issues.

Thankfully, I hadn’t gotten around to using any of the travel-sized products in the DevaCurl Super Curly Curls On The Go Kit.

Unfortunately though, I did get around to using the DevaCurl Wave Maker Touchable Texture Whip.

New Look Shoes

New Look Floral Pumps
New Look Red Houndstooth Pumps

I picked up these Pumps, along with the Black Leather Motorcycle Boots (photos here) and Brown Leather Cowgirl Boots (photos here) all from New Look ages ago. I purchased all of them in a Eur Size 38/UK Size 5.

This was back when New Look was located where Forever 21 is now currently located (at the Avenues), I wanna’ say 2009?

I did visit New Look at their newer location at the Avenues, which happened to be on the top floor, next to Mamas & Papas, but they seem to have either relocated again or just closed down for good (I dunno’).
