Prior to doing my “big chop,” I thought that I would have to wash my hair everyday or every other day to maintain my wash & go hairstyle. Thanks to the natural hair ladies on YouTube (DenimPixie was my fave!) and some experimentation, I quickly learned that was absolutely false! I now tend to rock my wash & go for up to 7 days! Check out how I refresh my hair to keep it moisturized and fluffy!

I finally tried my first Miss Jessie’s product! If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw when I scored the Super Sweetback Treatment on clearance for 50% off (normally $48). The Super Sweetback Treatment (henceforth referred to as SST) is a deep conditioner that promises to soften the hair and encourage growth. I’ve had enough time to properly test this product out, so keep reading if you want to know my thoughts!
I finally decided to try a new hair product! Awhile ago I was very interested in the Jane Carter Curl Defining Cream, but never purchased it because of the hefty price tag. Not too long ago I was perusing the “ethnic” area of Target and came across the smaller 6 ounce container for $14.99 so I decided to give it a go. Check out my first impression of this product if you’re interested!

I am not very good with hair styling. I know how to take care of my hair, but that is pretty much it. I can’t do exotic, unique styling to it. The puff is pretty much the extent of styling that I can do. It is super easy, but I always get compliments when I wear it. This video was requested, so I decided to show you how I do my puff. Enjoy!

I know it’s been a minute since my last staple hair product review, but I was trying to wait until I repurchased this product. I still don’t actually have this product in my stash, but I wanted to get this review out of the way. I still love it, I’m just trying to use up some of my other products.
Shea Moisture Curl & Style Milk is a conditoner that can be used on wet or dry hair. I use it to refresh my hair when I think it needs a little moisture. It retails for $10-$11 and can be purchased at Walgreens or Target.
When I started my natural hair journey, I went a little (a lot) product crazy! I watched so many YouTube videos and read blogs and forums that fed my product addiction. I was constantly searching for the perfect product. Unfortunately, quite a few hair companies that cater to kinky/curly hair can be on the expensive side. Keep reading to see how you may be able to save some money!
The next product in my Staple Hair Product Review Series is Curls in a Bottle! by Curl Junkie. This glycerin-free gel is a lightweight gel that can be used for styling or as a finisher. I usually use this on top of other products as a last step to keep the frizzies away for my wash & go styles. This gel retails for $19 for 12 ounces of product. It can be purchased at www.curljunkie.com, www.aveyou.com, and select other retailers.
I decided to try a braid out after seeing how gorgeous Makeupanbeautyjunkie’s was on YouTube. (Click here to check her video out). I wasn’t 100% pleased with the results, but I didn’t hate them either. I will say that the later it got in the day after I took the braids out, the better I liked it. Take a look at my latest shopaHAULism post if you would like to see what it looked like by the end of that day. The video below shows how I achieved my first braid out using Qhemet Biologics Alma & Olive Heavy Cream.
What are some of your tips to getting a fluffy (not frizzy) braid out?
Today’s installment of my Staple Hair Product Review Series is going to be a two for one deal. I’ll be reviewing 2 products by Kinky Curly; the Curling Custard and the Knot Today conditioner. I decided to review these together because I always use them together and secondly because I am thinking about removing them from my staple product list. They are both great products, but at the time, I don’t feel like they fit my current hair needs. I’ll get into more of that within each review. I usually use these products together for a wash and go style. Kinky Curly Curling Custard retails for about $30 for a 16 ounce jar or $17 for a 8 ounce jar. Knot Today retails for $12 for an 8 ounce bottle. Kinky Curly products can be purchased at Whole Foods, Target, and kinkycurly.com.
