Adding a fun accessory can take your everyday look to another level. :)
How do you accessorize your fro?
Laila Ali Dryer results :)
Aight I'm done! It took 20-30 minutes (I lost track of time lol!) on the cool setting
(which is actually a warm setting) on high speed to dry my hair 99 percent! My
hair was VERY VERY smushed from the dryer lol! But I was able to finger fluff it
like normal. The product combo worked great! I'm out to get Supa Gabe!
BTW, don't mind the fact that I keep rockin this sweater lol!!! Hey it happens! :)
Aight Ya'll Real Time Here! LOL
Aight this is real time ya'll lol! I just cowashed my hair and I'm doing a wash & go. (The products I'm using today in this order are Avocado oil, Jane Carter Creamy Leave in Styling Smoother, SM Curling Gel Souffle and Jane Carter Nourish and Shine.)
I'm trying the Laila Ali dryer out now... It's 17 degrees out and I gotta get Gabe soon. I'll post what my hair looks like after I'm done with the dryer. :)
Adding Essential Oils to Water :)
Quick tip: If you have fine hair or are sensitive to using lots of heavy oils on your
scalp, try adding a few drops of your essential oils to some water instead of a
carrier oil. :) That way, you are still able to reap the benefits of some of your favorite oils. It also works nice as a hair refresher. Currently, I add about 5-7 drops to 2 oz of water. I'll probably tweak this a little as I learn what works for me. :)
Busted Bonnet In Public LOL!
Battle of the Twists!
Sometimes I like to do "on the hair" side by side comparisons with my products. This helps me get an idea on how my hair will turn out before committing to doing my entire head with a product only to find that it was a complete fail lol. Today, I decided to play with some things I use as leave ins and stylers for my hair. I wanted to see how they'd work for my dry twistouts.
BTW, My hair is a couple days oil and has avocado oil, Shea Moisture Yucca & Baobab Volumizing Conditioner, Grapeseed oil, and Fantasia Ic Hair Polisher Gel in it. (For this experiment, I added each product to my hair without additional H20.)
Avoiding Flaking From Products :)
I think we all can relate to having to rinse out your hair because of a product not mixing well with something else you had in your hair and it caused, flakes, goo balls, and chunks of product to lodge itself into your hair. (Not to mention if you have curly or coily hair it is a PAIN to wash out!) The problem usually lies when combining water based leave ins and gels together. It can be hit or miss at times, so knowing whether or not they work nicely together BEFORE applying them to your hair can save you lots of time. This is a really easy trick I like to do before mixing products that I'm not familiar with using together in my hair.
Example of products that mix well together: Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie and Fantasia IC Hair Polisher Styling Gel.
Example of products that don't mix well together: Eden Body Works Coconut Shea Leave In Conditioner and Fantasia IC Hair Polisher Styling Gel/ Eco Styler Argan Oil Gel.
