Today’s Look

Posted on

Off to my son’s award ceremony! My lighting is horrible! Makes the photos look so unnatural looking, or maybe it is the flash on my cell? but anyway….. I always apply a moisturizer to my skin before priming. Just keeping it simple today.

Still Natural

Just a little update peeps!  Hi guys, I know it’s been a while, but I haven’t been doing or trying anything new with my hair.  The last thing I have done was when I did the “major” trim on it.  I am still rocking the curly twist out.  I will say this, my staple product (meaning, I always come back to it)  Taliah Waajid Curling Cream .  It’s for my hair.  That’s all I can say.

Don’t Hate…..

No. For real people. Don’t leave any hateful comments. I’m thinking that twist outs just aren’t for me. I know what you’re thinking, “It’s not that bad…” (in your I feel so sorry for her voice) Here’s the problem. When I take down the twist, I’m getting excited because it looks defined and errthang….as I try to separate though…hot mess. (I didn’t post any pics of it separated..) My hair always end up looking like I just woke up. I honestly believe I have trained my hair to only look good when I pincurl twist it because no matter how much I fluff and pull on that hairstyle it works! So, to all you ladies who have mastered that twist out…..props to you hun. I’m just not feeling this one here….photo 1

I Refuse To Quit!

I have been trying to do twist out, after twist out, after twist out, after twist out!! Unfortunately, all I have gotten is failed, failed, failed,….well, a fail! 😦 I went searching on youtube for wash n go’s. I figured, hey, why not? Wash n go should be pretty easy right? Okaaaay….then I come across dearnaptural85. Now, I am not new to her, but I came across an old video before her hair was as long as it is now!!! She did a wash n go twistout?(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=enUiD7anUEY)She called it a winter wash n go.

So anyway….I decided to go for the twist out one more time people!! Here is how I look now, photo (2)

I will let the twist stay in overnight, and who knows….

M.I.A. – Report

curljelly_lHey loves, I know it has been a minute right?! I have been working on my photography skills, entering photo contest, and just trying to learn how to use the many features on my DSLR. However, I am back, and I am going to post a review on the Curls Unleashed Curl Boosting Jelly. Now, before I bash this product, I am going to give it the benefit of the doubt and say, maybe it is me.??? Perhaps I applied it wrong, or perhaps I put too much. I don’t know, but can you say dry, dry, and more drying!! I mean really…… This product retails for $16, and to me, that is too much money to be disappointed. So, what I will do is help it out. I will apply some kind of cream or maybe castor oil to my hair before applying, but it definitely is not a “use alone” product like the instructions say. Talk about drying, and there was no shine whatsoever. Has anyone ever used this product? Did I miss something? Let me know. I will post how my second try comes out. In the meantime, this product makes the following claim:

Curls Unleashed™ Set it Off™ Curl Boosting Jelly is made with soothing aloe vera, wheat protein, vitamin B and other ingredients to help give you gorgeous, “crunchless” curl definition.

• Defines curls without the crunch
• Helps eliminate frizz
• Provides all day hold

This product helps eliminate frizz without making your hair feel hard or crunchy. Great for all types of hair. This product is free of SD alcohol, parabens & mineral oil. Packaging is BPA free and recyclable

My hair update

Posted on Updated on

I flat ironed last weekend, and I’ve gotten it out of my system so before going back to my curls, I thought I would let you all see my “straightened” hair. It had been a day or two (can’t really recall) but this photo is not when it was freshly done. Yes, bra strap again because of that last trim but I won’t be trimming for a while.

First Time For Everything

I decided to give it a try with the wash n go look. So, I basically conditioner washed my hair today and put in my leave ins. Then I went through my hair with my fingers and applied my Taliah Waajid Curly Curl Cream. I apologize for the “no makeup” look. lol My hair was still wet in the photos. The more it dried, the shorter my hair became! Not really sure how I feel about it? I don’t know…..(?) I did wear it out in public and no one really stared. lol I’m not sure if that is good or not. Well, I guess it’s one of those things that takes practice huh?
