Add a Muscle Cream to Your Nightly Routine ASAP

Currently, I don’t have a job where I spend 8 hours a day sitting in front of a computer. Before the job that I have now, I spent almost 8 years having to sit in front of 2 computer monitors all day. Now, my jobs call for me to have to stand, walk, and climb stairs occasionally, which my health appreciates. Unfortunately, that also means that have more nights when my body, especially legs, feel tired and sore. Enter a nighttime routine that now involves muscle creams and things. Yep, I’m that old, folks.

Muscle Creams in Nightly Routine | STAINED COUTURE

Yes, on most nights after a long day at work or when I remember that I have a gym membership, I will break out a muscle cream. Well, it’s not always a cream, because I do have a couple of solid and liquid options.

Scalp Lotion I’m Obsessed With Right Now

When it comes to growing healthy hair, it definitely starts at the roots. A clean, moisturized scalp is a huge factor in helping you grow your hair. Therefore, I try to give my scalp just as much attention as my ends – they both need attention. One product that I use on my hair every night is a scalp lotion.

Kamedis Scalp Lotion for Healthy Scalp | STAINED COUTURE

I’ve used a couple of scalp creams over the last year, which helped my hair grow more than a couple of inches in less than a year. The current scalp lotion that I’ve been using and loving is the one from Kamedis. Keep reading to see why I’ve been fancying this one over my other options.

The first reason is because I’ve yet to meet a Kamedis product that my skin didn’t love. I still love and use the Kamedis acne products, which have yet to let a breakout beat me. So, I felt confident in that I would love this product, too.

Most scalp creams I’ve used had a thicker consistency, but this one is thin and creamy. Weird, but true. So, it works in my hair, no matter if my hair is straight or curly. Plus, it absorbs into the scalp pretty fast, which doesn’t mess up a straighten style. Now, let’s talk about the moisturizing factor, because it’s amazing. This makes my scalp feel clean and moisturized. You apply the scalp lotion at night, before bed. This allows the lotion to moisturize your scalp and prevent dandruff.

I recently had my hair dyed, which can make your scalp become dry. Well, I didn’t give it a chance to happen, because I started using this immediately. So, my scalp hasn’t been dry, flaky, or itchy. Actually, one day, the back of my head was a little itchy. However, I realized that I forgot to apply the cream the night before. The itchiness stopped, as soon as I rubbed a little scalp cream over it.

You might be wondering about build-up. Well, this doesn’t create any build-up, because the lotion instantly absorbs into the scalp. Needless to say, every morning after using the Kamedis Scalp Lotion, I wake up to a clean and moisturized scalp. Makes daily hair care a lot easier. You can purchase Kamedis products and their scalp lotion at

LUST-HAVE LIST: March 2020

Stained Couture’s monthly series, Lust-Have List, features items I’m wanting this month.


March is here! As soon as the calendar changed to March, the forecast instantly saw warmer temperatures. Not much sun, but in due time. Therefore, I’m all about looking for cute spring things and things to help me relax my mind more. January felt like it was never going to end and February was full of stress and it lacked luster. So, hopefully, March will be much better and help me forget the previous 2 months.

In the meantime, please see what I’m wanting this month and why.

LUST-HAVE LIST: March 2020

  • LUCID Calming Lavender Foam Pillow – A value sleep and try to do all things to help get good sleep. So, this memory foam pillow that’s infused with lavender is makes me giddy.
  • Electric Nail File – I think it’s time for me to finally get a electric file, because I’ve been practicing doing my own gel manicures. Although I can remove them with a gritty nail file, my wrist is tired of these shenanigans.
  • Red Cheetah Print Wrap Dress – I’m getting to the point where I can’t not want everything cheetah print. I mostly have traditional brown cheetah prints, but I think a red option is needed.
  • Tatcha Kissu Lip Mask – Listen, I couldn’t phantom paying more than $15 for a lip mask. However, I’ve been hearing and seeing amazing reviews about this Tatcha lip mask. Plus, my lips have been dropping hints that it needs and deserves something fancy. So, this may be it.
  • Nude Espadrille Ankle Strap Sandals – This past weekend, it took everything in me to not buy this pair of sandals. However, now that the weather is warming up, I don’t think I’m going to fight this urge much longer. I think I’ll end up buying them this weekend.

LINK-END ROUND-UP: March 01, 2020

Stained Couture’s weekly series, Link-End Round-Up, features interesting reads I read from around the internet this week.


Funny running into you on a Sunday evening while posting a Link-End Round-Up. Yet, here we are. So, I know these posts usually go up on Friday. Unfortunately, last week was blur of work and car problems. So, I was dropping the ball in a few areas of my life. I was going to just let this week’s Link-End Round-Up fall to the waist-side…again. However, I really enjoyed these posts and found a new one tonight while procrastinating cleaning my closet and bathroom.

Therefore, I decided to crack open this post, refresh the links, and publish. So, hopefully, you enjoy these reads as much as I did. Now, let me finally turn on the final episode of Love Is Blind and get my apartment together before starting a new work week. Have you watched Love Is Blind?! OMG, what an amazing pile of reality show. I already the results of the finale, but I still want to see it play out.

Oh, let me get back on course. Yes! I hope you enjoy this week’s Sunday Night Edition of Link-End Round-Up.
