Wonder Curl To The Rescue!

Standard

So after using the She Scent It Papaya Curly Souffle, I needed something that had a ton of moisture. My hair was extremely dry and frizzy. While going through my shelves of product I found some that had never been opened and decided to give it a try.

Last July I purchased all of the products from Wonder Curl. I read some rave reviews about them and had to see what the buzz was all about.

Here’s what I got:

Butter than Love Pudding
Butter than Love Whipped
Get Set Hair Jelly
Get Slick Hair Smoothie

I used the Jelly and Smoothie in the hot humid summer for twist outs and got amazing results. I couldn’t believe how well my hair held up with just those 2 products, I never cracked open the Pudding and Whipped.

To my surprise, the Wonder Curl Butter Than Love Hair Whipped gave me an amazing twist out 🙂

That night I re-twisted using the Pudding and got great results as well!

Wonder Curl does what it claims! Provides incredible moisture, shine, and softness to your hair 🙂

Back To Curly

Standard

I’m happy to have my curly hair back! It was a little scary when I stood in the shower and it took almost a minute to feel my hair revert back. I thought I did some serious damage.

Being curly again did give me a chance to use my new products from She Scent It! I got the following:

JOJOBA HEMP CONDITIONING SHAMPOO – This leaves you with that squeaky clean feeling. The smell I can’t place but kind of reminds me of dish soap.
EUCALYPTUS MINT SHAMPOO – Haven’t used it yet but I can tell you it smells minty.

AVOCADO CONDITIONER – LOVE LOVE LOVE this conditioner. Smells fruity and also has incredible slip. I will be reordering.

FORTIFYING HAIR MASQUE – I wanted a deep conditioner with protein and this did the trick. The smell reminds me of the Avocado conditioner. This goes on nice and thick and a little goes a long way. Also makes the reorder list.

COCO CREME LEAVE-IN CONDITIONER – LOVE LOVE LOVE this leave in! It smells like chocolate and has incredible slip. One more that makes the reorder list.

EXOTIC AMAZON HERBAL POMADE – I was using this when my hair was straight and really liked it. It can be used on your hair and scalp. It smells like cherries.
PAPAYA CURLY SOUFFLE – I really wanted to like this but it is too light for my hair. My hair needs the heavier butter based products.

MACADAMIA FIXING GEL – I used this with the curly souffle and didn’t have the best twist out. I’ll need to try it again with a heavier styler or on day 2 hair when I’m re-twisting.

 

Straight Natural Hair

Standard

Out of curiosity I decided to get my hair blown out and flat ironed.
I figured after a year of being natural, it was time to see the progress.

Back in December I visited a new salon that I heard about from a fellow natural who also went for the same service. I absolutely loved her results and was ready to make my appointment.

I went to We Love Hair located in Harlem, NY for the full treatment. It’s a beautiful salon and very reasonably priced. I had my hair washed, conditioned, steamed, blow dryed, trimmed, flat ironed and styled for $80.00!!! As most of you know from my Miss Jessie’s experience, this was a welcomed change.

I was a bit nervous about all the heat my hair was about to endure with the blow drying and flat ironing but after seeing the end results, I was very pleased with the results. My hair was soft and bouncy. It never looked this good when it was relaxed.

My stylist took a picture when he finished curling it. I love the layers!!!

 

 

My hair didn’t hold up this style for too long thanks to the wind on the way home but it still looked cute:

I kept this look for about 2 weeks. Honestly, after about a week, I was bored with it. I ended up wearing it in a pony tail (just like when I was relaxed). I really missed my curly hair and couldn’t wait to wash the straightness out 🙂 Plus I had some new products I received from my Black Friday haul that I couldn’t wait to try out (next post I’ll be uploading).

I will be doing this again most likely in the winter since this style would never hold up in the summer. It is best done in the colder months.

I Love My Hair – One Year Later

Standard

I will post more later on the products I used for this braid out. I may have found the ultimate moisturizer next to my favorite Komaza Care and Beija Flor styling creams.

What is it???? Qhemet Biologics Amla & Olive Heavy Cream. I also used Camille Rose Naturals Alma Jai Twisting Butter which is becoming a favorite for giving me the most defined twist/braid outs ever!!! These 2 products work amazing together.

Pi Nappa Kappa

A fellow Natural sent me some information on a Natural Hair Sorority on Facebook.

An interesting concept, I couldn’t help but check it out and see what it was all about. What can I say, I’ve always wanted to be in a Sorority. What better one than for Natural hair 🙂
