I finally got a chance to watch All Eyez On Me after reading  reviews. I don't want this to be a spoiler, so I won't go into details. I didn't allow other reviews to sway me from watching the movie. I also didn't allow celebrity reviews to sway me as well. I like to form my own opinion. I've read that the movie was similar to a biopic from Lifetime. I have to disagree. The film was put together very well.

Throughout the movie, I was entertained and enlightened on Tupac Shakur. I am a big fan of his music. I laughed, felt sad and rejoiced during this movie. Tupac Shakur experienced so much in so little time. He died at the age of 25. I still remember the day he died. Everyone I knew was devastated.  I had a childhood crush on him lol. He was very articulate and that's what I was mostly attractive too.
He was son of  a queen called Afeni Shakur. I am so happy that parts of her life; the good and the bad was shown in the movie. She was a strong black woman.

I just want to say, go see the movie for yourself.  After posting this I'm  going to turn on my PANDORA app and listen to TUPAC.

A few of my favorite Tupac Songs:

  • Keep Ya  Head Up
  • Brenda Got A Baby
  • I ain't Mad at Cha
  • Changes
Later ✌🏾️

Two weeks after straightening my hair with the Simply Straight Straightening brush, I decided I wanted to try a rod set. I set up my equipment and begin to film.  I didn't want to wash my hair and miss out on this opportunity. 
Product talk

I only used  one product to achieve this result. 
I used the Smooth'N Shine Polishing Revivoil Foaming Wrap Lotion with Olive & Tea Tree Oils. The product states (4) Firm Hold. You can use this product on damp or dry hair. I purchased this product at my local Walmart for $3. 


After I finished installing the rods, I sprayed my hair with the Silk & Shine Leave-In Detangler Conditioner. It leaves my hair feeling absolutely great. 

I ordered (2) packs of rods  (2) leave-in conditioners (2) shampoos and (2) conditioners  on the The Mane Choice website when they were having a sale for $3.00 each. Be sure to follow this company on Instagram for updates and giveaways! 

     I was so happy with my results.

 I tried really hard not to disturb my curls.

Personally, I can only stretch this style for 2-3 days.  Then on to the next lol.
Half Up Half Down 

 Check out the video below for different styles.

I will definetly revisit this style the next time I straighten my hair.  Have you tried  any of these products before?
