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.
Happiness has finally been put into a lipstick form with a great price!
I’m excited and you should be too! Earlier this week NYX launched their Maracon Lippies in 12 bright and fun shades. Only $6 a pop I couldn’t resist the purchase. These smooth, creamy, and pigmented lipsticks are everything you need for the perfect bold lip.
These lipsticks apply very smoothly with a great color pay off. From left to right is Chambord, Blue Velvet, Violet, Rose, and Key Lime. The first swatch picture is what they look like without a flash and the last one is with a flash. You don’t need to put a lot to achieve the product color either. On go around on your lips will give you a great color.
I’m sad that I didn’t purchase the rest of the lipsticks in the collection because they are definitely going to be my summer lipstick choices. All I have to say is that you need this in your life.
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 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!
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.
