Sorry for taking so long but here is what I used to do my finger coils. You don’t have to use the same products that I did but you do have to use a Denham brush. I tried to do it with a regular paddle brush and it didn’t work out.
Creme of Nature Lemongrass & Rosemary Leave-in Conditioner
Eco Styler Argan Oil Gel
Spray bottle filled with water
Hair clips or rubberbands
Start off with freshly washed hair that is soaking wet. Apply your conditioner of choice throughout your hair and take a small section of your hair and saturate it with gel. The amount of hair you take will determine how big or small your curls will be. I didn’t want mine to be too small and I didn’t want to spend too long on my hair. This size too me about an hour.
After you saturate the section of hair you want, take the brush and brush through your hair until it refines your natural curls. Once that section is refined, take you finger and begin to twist the hair around it until you get all the way to the tip. Do this throughout your head until there is nothing left. I forgot to add Argan Oil to the products used (sorry again). Use a quarter size amount of the oil of your choice and apply it to your finished coils. While you are coiling your hair, make sure to keep your hair moist because it has to saturate with water for good coils. Wait until your hair is completely dry to separate your coils. I did my hair in the morning and waited until the next day to separate them.
I hope this post makes sense and isn’t hard to follow. I’ll make a video once I take this sew in out.
Used my Color Pop color gel liners today for a rainbow effect on my eyes. They settle quickly on the eyes so you have to move fast if you want them to blend seamlessly. The yellow isn’t as opaque as I would like it to be but is a great if you later it up.I was surprised at the quality of white liner and didn’t expect it to be it’s true color in only one swipe. Definitely worth the $5 if you were looking to add some color to your everyday cat eye.
This is what my hair looks like now. I’m growing the top out for a bit of length and keeping the back and sides tapered down. I don’t line the front of my hair because I’m too attached to my baby hair.
Thinking about going back to my strawberry colored hair for the fall but black will do for now.
In an effort to get blemish free skin, I may or may not have gone crazy on Amazon. I bought 6 boxes of Nubian Heritage African Black Soap for about $15 and some change. I started using this a couple years ago and my skin we almost flawless! The beauty supply that I got it from stopped carrying it and I just drifted back to my apricot scrub.
I’m not sure if it’s the weather or something I’m eating but my skin just looks bad! Whether I pop a bump or not it leaves a mark that never goes away!
This brand of black soap is anti-blemish, detoxifying, and healing. I’m going to use this on my face with an electric facial brush. I’ll keep you guys updated on how it works for my skin!
Am I the only person that has a slight obsession with drag makeup?
This look started out as a pretty basic pink look but the lashes and liner gave me a new road to go down. I want to play with it a bit more and try some different lashes on the bottom. From a distance they seem ok but up close is questionable.
I hope you guys like this look! Let me know if there’s anything you want to see me create or have questions about!
In this video I show you how to get defined curls that will last all week with just 3 products! I used the small grey perm rods, a wrap and set mousse, and eco styler gel. One thing I forget to mention in the video is that I curl each section of hair in the opposite direction so as the style ages my curls won’t clump together.
I have a special series for Halloween that involves a bunch of color and one of my favorite cartoon shows so stay tuned! Thanks for watching!
Over the last two months my skin has taken a turn for the worse. With the stress of school and personal things, my face went on a rampage. I’ve had break out occur and didn’t know what to do about it. I’ve finally gotten my skin to calm down but now I’m left with dark spots. I’ve been using Ambi Fade Cream about a month before my breakout started but I’m not seeing any change in my skin. I’ve used it before and didn’t see any improvements then.
Does anyone know how to lighten dark spots or any products that will help fade them and not cause more breakouts? I have combo skin that gets extremely oily in the T-zone throughout the day and the rest of my skin can be normal to dry. I would love to know what you guys use or how you deal with dark spots and breakouts. Thanks for your help!
I took my 2 strand twists out this morning but didn’t have time to separate and fluff them out. I’ve been locking the moisture in my hair with Dark and Lovely Au Naturale Anti-Shrinkage Sheen Sealing Nectar. This stuff smells so good it’s ridiculous. I picked it about about 2 weeks ago at walmart for around $9.
My hair retains the shine it gives for hours and the smell too. I spray it on my hair in the morning as I’m getting ready and maybe once again in the middle of the day. You have to be careful not to spray a whole bunch because everywhere you lay your head will have a grease stain on it. So far it’s doing a really good job at retaining the moisture in my hair.
