Top 10 Natural Hair Products of 2014
This was a great year for me and my hair, I went natural twice in the past and never stayed with it. I would always go back to relaxing it and getting a pixie cut because that was my favorite style to wear. Finally I decided to go all the way and go natural and let my hair grow never to get a relaxer ever again. I got a chance to buy some new products, It pretty much gave me a reason to shop which every girl loves to do. So I carefully thought it out and I didn't have to think twice about the 10 products that I picked. These are products I highly recommend for natural hair.

Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Mask Review

Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Mask Review
This year has been big for Peter Thomas Roth facial mask collection Cucumber Gel Mask, Rose Stem Cell Bio-Repair Mask & Pumpkin Enzyme Mask which is my hands down favorite. Now everyone is buzzing about their New 24K Gold Mask. The 24K Gold Mask is a ultra rich luxurious anti-aging face mask infused with pure 24K gold and colloidal gold. This will help lift and firm the skin also adding a radiant glow. Caffeine helps tighten and firm the appearance of skin. Hyaluronic Acid & Glycerin deliver intense hydration, plumping skin for a more lifted appearance. Retail Price: $80,00 also available at sephora in the Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Mask Magic Kit $85.00

The gold color is mesmerizing, the texture is super rich and hydrating, and it takes a few minutes to dry so I would recommend leaving it on for 15 to 20 minutes. After rinsing off my skin felt clean, smooth and soft. I give it two thumbs up!!!!!!!
