Family Vacation Vlog
Check out, Family Vacation Vlog - Kriss & Ty! - NaturalMe4C
We weren't able to do too much this summer, it rained a lot!!! But we did get a chance to go visit our family who lives out of state. The boys had such a good time letting loose!
I have completed my Coconut Shea collection! I LOVE this leave in conditioner! Seriously! For me it was well worth the wait of trying to find it. This leave in has earned the love of Ms. Fro and a spot under my sink :) For me, this stuff is da bomb!
Note: I haven't use this product with gels like Eco Styler, Fantasia IC in my hair... only creamy products. To see if the product work well with other stylers, here's a quick tip, try mixing a little leave in with your gel/styler in your hands (like you apply lotion) to make sure they mix well before applying it to your hair.
Goody Ouchless Flex Updo Barrettes
I recently shared how I have been stretching out my true wash and go's into larger fros using the Goody Ouchless Flex Updo Barrettes (smaller size). These clips have been around for a long time but I always but them on the back burner when it came down to buying them because of their price. They range $3.59 and up for two....and I knew I'd need waaay more than two. Plus, I wasn't quite sure how they would work for me. I was browsing Ebay and found a great deal on them (12 clips for 12 bucks or something) so I stocked up! I initially got them to use during my cowashing sessions in hopes to avoid twisting my hair every time I washed it....but I haven't gotten them to work that way just yet because my shrinkage is MASSIVE when I was my hair lol. However, I love these clips to help stretch out my hair without having to twist or band it up all the time... especially when it's late!
They are flexible, and don't pull or tug on my hair. They also don't have metal and are very gentle. These clips save me time from doing my old stretched wash & go technique from April, all over my head... which was twisting my roots a few times down and leaving the rest out to coil. I still like to do that technique on my sensitive areas, like the nape and edges just to be extra careful. :) But since my hair is getting longer, these clips now work for me. BTW, I usually end up using about 13-15 of these to stretch my hair.
I like to stretch my true wash & go's into larger fros before I attempt to finger detangle it. This makes things a lot easier for me to work out shed hairs and knots. I also end up snipping less strands when it comes to removing complex knots or ssk's. Yup, they happen!
Here's what I did:
Pros For My Fro
* Lighter feeling on my hair
* Light scent
* Smooth feeling on my hair and hands
* Doesn't leave my hair extremely hard
* Firm hold
* Alcohol Free
* Cheap under $5.00 for 32 oz
* Leaves my hair shiny
* Contains sunscreen
* Didn't flake
* Plays well with my other products so far
* Contains glycerin which can be great for added moisture especially in certain weather.
Cons For My Fro
* Dries pretty crunchy (Not as crunchy as the Olive oil one though!
* Contains glycerin, while great for moisture, it can be iffy for me in certain temps. (Colder temps usually mean hard hair for me. Warm/ humid temps usually mean soft frizzy hair for me. )
