The colors in the matte collection are: Matte Black, Matte Smoke, Matte Mulberry and Matte Burgandy. The pictures below are from the website, the polish looks a little more matte once applied to your nails.

Here’s a quick update on my hair (without any pictures, lol). As I promised myself back in July, I’ve been trying to focus more on taking care of my hair so I’ve been really diligent about following my regimen. I have made a few changes to my regimen since my last update, I’ve eliminated a few products that I felt just weren’t working for me and I have also stopped the mid week co-washes. I just can’t find the time to wash my hair more than once a week. Well...I guess I could, if I wore it in a ponytail after the mid-week wash but as I’ve told you before, I like to wear my hair down, so... Maybe when the winter weather kicks in I’ll start back with the co washes??
So anyway, the real reason for this hair update is to tell you that I started the Castor Oil Challenge on Hairlista.com! I’m so excited! I finally purchased the Jamaican Black Castor Oil (I tried the challenge once before but I only had the regular castor oil...I think I used too much...and I wasn't feelin' it) So here we go again...this time I’ll be applying it to my scalp on wash days and maybe once during the week. The consistency is kinda thick so I’ll probably stick to wash days only so I don’t weigh my hair down too much. I started the challenge on September 3rd, so it’s been about 3 weeks. So far, so good, my hair seems a little thicker but that could be attributed to the fact that I’m 7 weeks post relaxer and I recently put a rinse in my hair which always makes it seem a little thicker. The challenge ends on December 2nd and my goal for this challenge is to increase the thickness and length of my hair. I don’t have a current picture but I’ll post comparison pics with the next hair update.
I’ve learned a lot of great tips about products and taking better care of my hair on the Hairlista.com forum as well as the Hairliciousinc.com blog. Sunshyne keeps the blog fresh with new information and the forum is a great way to connect with other ladies who are interested in hair care.
I’ll keep you posted on the status on my hair. I plan to relax within the next couple of weeks so when I do, I’ll take pictures and post comparison pics from July.
