Them Curls!

I recently was given the opportunity to try out a product from Lace Naturals. Let me tell you ladies(and gents)….The smell!!! It was so yummy and amazing.It smelled of a flowery, sweet bottle of goodness.

I used the Lace Naturals Hibiscus Hair Milk as my moisturizer on freshly washed hair, then sealed it in with coconut oil. When I finally decided what the heck I was going to do my hair, I pulled out the Design Essentials Natural Twist and Setting Lotion from my September box(which I forgot to post up :-(. Sorry y’all).

I parted my hair and put twist in the front with a funky twist updo. When I tell you my twist out was on POINT!!!!!! Check out the photos below:

I was feeling myself the whole day. I just couldn’t get over how great my twists looked. Even after day two they were still looking amazing.

In the above picture, my twists were twisted back up the way they were from the day before. To do so, I spritz my hair with water applied my Lace Naturals … my coconut oil, and used the Design Essentials Natural Twist and Setting Lotion. I loosed the sections twice in the morning. I am in LOVE!

I know you want to be more in love too, so go on over to Lacenatural.com and purchase some goodies. As well stop by Designessentials.com, get those twists poppin’ and moisturized.

Vacation Hair: Kinks Curls & Coils

When traveling with natural hair you may come to many road blocks.

1) The change in climate

2) Product availability

3) You are only allotted one free suitcase after that its 50$ (depending on the airline)

4) No liquids in your hand luggage.

So you first think okay there is a possibility of a climate change alright let me pack my climate control products because I might not be able to find the products I need. Then you remember, if I do that I’ll be paying for another suitcase being that I am the ultimate product junkie. Alright, I’ll pack it in my hand luggage. Well, your out of luck thanks to recent airport incidents.

As I packed for my vacation all of these road blocks appeared. Thanks to the KinkyCurlyCoilyMe.com launch party, I was able to break down those blocks and travel happily. I got a slew of sample products and they all made my hair feel and look awesome.

The products I used were:

Design Essentials: Natural Curl Cleanser(Sulfate Free Shampoo)

Curls:Coconut Curlada Conditioner

Karen’s Body Beautiful: Sweet Ambrosia Leave-In conditioner(Pomegranate Guava)

Overall, the experience I had with these products were amazing. My hair was left feeling soft and my curls and coils looking lovely. The cleanser was very sudsy which gave my hair that clean feeling, and made my curls peek out. Once the conditioner was applied I detangled, left it in for about 3-5 minutes and rinsed out. This was sure to make my curl POP. It also had a nice Caramel Coconut smell to it. I loved it!! I almost don’t want to try any other products. The leave-in was then applied and my hair felt extremely soft and manageable.

The only downfall was that the Leave-In had a chemically smell when I rubbed it in my hand to apply to my hair. I think it might have been the Pomegranate Guava “flavor”. I also anticipated purchasing some authentic Jamaican black castor oil but the availability was scarce. Therefore, I was left with no oils to add to my hair.

If you have not tried any of the above products, they are highly recommended. Find out if your hair will love it too.

Until next time….
