Are you a Noire Natural?

I recently discovered Ashleigh of Noire Naturals; who is a fellow young entrepreneur, making her mark in the natural hair community. She has developed a line of hair care products and she gave me the opportunity to try them out by sending along some samples; many thanks to her and the Noire Naturals team.

The line I was sent is called “Female Fatale”, consisting of the:

Oh Là Là Hair Cleansing Elixir

C’est Magnifique Rinse-or-Remain Conditioner

&

J’adore Curl-Defining Jelly

This was my hair before washing.

I wet my hair and applied “Oh Là Là Hair Cleansing Elixir”, I wasn’t to fond of the scent, but my scalp was left feeling cleansed. I then followed with the “C’est Magnifique Rinse-or-Remain Conditioner” which smelled of a cocoa butter mix which I liked in the beginning. I so wanted this to work wonders on my hair but the product was really light and I didn’t get the coating I was looking for. This made it harder to detangle my kinkier textured hair in the back of my head, but it was great for the front section, which is a looser curl.

After detangling and washing out the conditioner I applied the “J’adore Curl-Defining Jelly”. You all know I’m a definition kind of girl so I figured that this product would give me my definition. Sadly, there was not as much definition as I would have liked.

This was my hair after adding the products to my hair

Even though this product didn’t define my curls or appeal to my sense of smell when applying, it was definitely full of great oils which stretched my hair for a lovely Fro. Once my hair was dry it smelled like some really yummy cocoa butter, which I really enjoyed.

Stretch Fro

I recently decided to get a protective style and thought it would be super to stretch my hair. Now that is worked fine for me I can share it with you all.
I co washed my hair using my Shea Moisture products also applying my Karen’s Body Beautiful Sweet Ambrosia Leave-in; you all know I couldn’t forget to seal up my ends by applying my Vatika oil. After all of that was said and done I twisted my hair into a couple chunky sections.

I then sat under my satin bonnet dryer for 45 mins. Once it was dry I removed the twists and combed out my hair using a wide tooth comb, to stretch my hair. These were my results.

I couldn’t help but throw up my black power sign while I was at it. Doesn’t it look lovely!! I must say after only 4 months post BC my hair has grown lots. I love it!!
