Product Line Review on Tré Luxe Products

By |December 3rd, 2014|Curls, Uncategorized|2 Comments

I feel like I am on this quest for the perfect products that work the best for my hair. Unfortunately, on this mission, I have hit many bumps in the road and have been called many names—such as product junkie, curl product pusher, etcetera (Just kidding no one called me any of that). I do, however, feel as though I am learning so much about my hair likes and dislikes through this journey.
If you are a new visitor to my blog, here are a few quick notes about my hair:

It is very dry, especially in the winter
It was once heat damaged and I haven’t used heat since December 31, 2013
I have low porosity hair
Texture: Fine
Hair Type: 3b, 3c patch in the back

My Natural Hair Wish List

By |September 18th, 2014|Curls, Uncategorized|7 Comments

I want!
Since my blog is all about hair, I decided to make an Amazon wish list of some products I have had my eye on for some time. Though my wash and go hair care routine in general is pretty much the same for the most part – just a sulfate-free shampoo, deep conditioner, a leave in conditioner, and an oil like jojoba, tea tree, or coconut oil. Styling follows after those steps. I am still constantly on the look out for better and cleaner hair care products and the brands that will give me better hair days for longer times. These need to be in my bathroom…ASAP

Hey Curl Friends!
Long time, no talk. My freelance designing has picked up so I have had like 0 time to blog. Anyway, I’ve wanted to talk about what to do when you are going through hair boredom  Here are 6 suggestions.

Heatless Hair Boredom Ideas/Suggestions
1. Curlformers. (Or the knocks offs on amazon.com)
Product Used: Camille Rose Naturals Curlaide Moisture Butter 
It is an easy fun way to have stretched out and beautiful heatless curls. It is a nice switch up from twist outs and wash & go’s. The first person to make me ever want to try these miraculous curling devices was a girl on YouTube named Mahogany Curls. She just makes everything look so easy. The only bad thing to mention is that they can be pretty uncomfortable when sleeping. If you are a stomach sleeper than you are probably fine. Oh, and make sure you wear a bonnet. It is easier to arrange them comfortably under there.

Winter Hair Care vs. Summer Hair Care

Have you noticed that when the seasons change, certain products in our natural hair care routine just don’t seem to work as good as they used to?  Don’t throw the product away! It may be a seasonal product. The environment has a lot to do with how our curly hair will act, especially if you live in the Midwest or East coast. The conditions can be harsh or more unpredictable for folks who live in these climates versus those who live in the warmer climates. Our hair already is a struggle to keep moisturized.
