Beauty on a Dime: TJ Maxx Luxe Beauty Aisle

This weekend I took a trip to TJ Maxx with my cousin and while she was looking at shoes and handbags {her weaknesses!}, I hit the beauty aisle. Besides the fact that I can’t buy new clothes and accessories due to my Thrifty Threads 365 challenge, I know the beauty options at TJ Maxx are everything!

Though TJ Maxx is known for affordable fashion, here’s why you should check out their beauty selection.

Beauty on a Dime: Dark & Lovely Au Naturale Anti-Breakage Line

Beauty on a Dime: Dark and Lovely Au Natural collection When it comes to fashion, I know my stuff. But for all things hair and beauty, I have to admit that I’m a bit baffled. Though I’ve had natural hair for the past six years, I still find myself on the hunt for products that moisturize my super dry locs.

A few weeks ago I was invited to an event for the Dark and Lovely Anti-Breakage line, which has no alcohol, mineral oil, petrolatum, parabens and aims to fight damage and retain hair growth. I don’t think I’ve used Dark and Lovely since my relaxed days, but I was curious.

After trying the products for the past three weeks, I can confidently say I’ve found some new favorites.
