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 got my hair done, finally! Last time my hair was done by someone other than me was back in May 2012. Needless to say, I was long overdue! My stylist trimmed about 1 inch of my bad ends off. She also colored, blow-dried, and flat-ironed me. This process took about 4 hours. I like the results and I’m surprised by my length! My hair has never, ever been this long before!
The 1st picture is when I originally got all my relaxed ends cut off. The 2nd picture is my most recent trim. Please excuse the wildness in the 2nd picture, it was a very windy day!
That’s it! I just wanted to keep you all up on how my natural hair journey is going!
I feel such a sense of accomplishment when I finish a product, don’t you? I made a video showing you some products that I have used up recently and giving a mini review on each. Take a look if you’re interested!
Are there any products you’ve used up recently? Would you repurchase? Why or why not?
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.
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.
Welcome to my new series! Starting today, I will be posting some type of hair, makeup, skin care, or overall beauty tip every Tuesday. This series will consist of tips I have learned over the years from my own experience.
For the first installation in this series, I wanted to tackle some tips for my transitioners. By the term “transitioner,” I mean the ladies who are growing out their relaxer and transitioning to natural hair. The picture shown above was taken approximately a month before I cut my relaxed ends completely off. I know from personal experience, that it can be difficult to mix the 2 textures of hair, which can lead to frustration and/or rash decisions (ie. go back to the relaxer, or chop it off). Hopefully the tips listed below can be of some help to you in dealing with your transitioning hair.
I know ya’ll thought that I forgot about this series, but I didn’t! Truth is I was delaying my next review because I was supposed to review Kinky Kurly Knot Today, but I’m considering taking it off my Staple List. I decided to skip it for now and I will probably review it when I review Kinky Curly Curling Custard because I always use them together anyway. Instead, today I will be reviewing Donna Marie Dream Curling Creme, one of my favorite styling products. This product is a light hold creamy product that can be used for wash and goes, twist-outs, etc. I use this for almost all of my wash and goes. This styler retails for $18 for 16 ounces of product. It can be purchased in at www.shopdonnamarie.com, www.aveyou.com, and select other retailers.
