Natural Hair: Curly Twistout

Hello Lovelies!

I wanted to share a go-to hairstyle that I use quite frequently on my hair.  It’s the curly twistout.  I simply twist my hair into two strand twist then roll my hair with these wave rod rollers (pictured below).

I keep the rods in over night.  I really like the body and curls that my hair have if my hair is completely dry.

I have a few pics of my hair at different times.

Cantu Shea Butter for Natural Hair Product Line Review

image

Hello lovelies,

I started using some products from the Cantu Shea Butter for Natural Hair Line back in November of 2014 after I cut my hair.  I am actually impressed with all of the products that I have used, because I have tried other natural hair care product lines and was under-whelmed with some of the products.  This hair care line advertises for not using chemicals with sulfates (harsh soap), silicones (coats hair strands), parabens (preservative), and mineral oil (heavy oil).  I will briefly review each product.

The sulfate-free cleansing shampoo is great.  It removes buildup and cleans my hair without my hair feeling stripped or dry.  One thing that I noticed about this shampoo is that my hair had curl definition.

I like the conditioner because my hair feels really soft and manageable.  I like to sit under my bonnet dryer so that the conditioner can penetrate my hair shafts.

I really like this leave-in conditioner.  It’s thick and creamy.  It keeps my curls defined when I do my twist outs.  I like to use it as a daily moisturizer when my hair feels dry.

I really like this co-wash.  It does a great job cleaning and conditioning my hair at the same time.  What I normally do is massage the co-washing on my scalp and hair then rinse it out as a shampoo.  Then, I put some more on my hair for a few minutes for some conditioning. I rinse it out, put some leave-in conditioner in, and style.  This co-wash is great!  I was really impressed.

Natural Hair: New Protective Style

image

Hey everyone!
I am sharing my newest protective style. For those who do not know what a protective style, it is a hair style that protects your natural hair from weather, wear and tear. I’m protecting my natural hair from this winter weather and to give my hair a break. This particular style is called crochet braid. Technically, the hair you see is not braids. I usually do some variation of crochet braids…I just use different types of hair. I just wanted to share. Talk to you soon!

Natural Hair Art

Hi Beautiful people,

I ran across some really gorgeous art of African-American women rocking their natural hair.  I love the colors and fashion.  I found out where these pic can be bought http://www.nikisgroove.com.  You can follow Niki on instagram as well. I just wanted to share some that I saw on instagram.  FYI: the last pic with the t-shirt is not Niki’s.

Disclaimer:  I do not own these pictures. I am just sharing them.

Closet Chic: Casual Chic

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

What’s up peeps?

I wanted to share a look I wore about two weeks that I posted on instagram.  This outfit was casual but I felt really cute in it.  I took a button down shirt (Wal-Mart, $5) and jeans (VF outlet, $8) rolled them up added a belt and my Converse and I was done.  My clutch is from Wal-Mart for $5….I’ve had it for several year now.  been keeping my makeup routine super simple.  I added some red lipstick  and mascara jazz up my look.  My hair is a twistout.

Smooches xo
