Curls...Yes Please.

Just achieved, hands down, the best curl-formers set on my hair in the history of my natural hair journey thanks to the help of vinegar, essential oils, and another weird ingredient that may or may not have contributed in shaping these gorgeous spirals. Vinegar rocks my coils.

Hooray for big hair. My curls are back and I am loving it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Saran Wrap Review Again

Got my hair flat-ironed professionally on Saturday and tried the saran wrap method on it on Wednesday and I don't think I liked it.
I feel like it took the bounce out of my hair and left it limp. My hair is usually voluminous when I get it straightened. Lots of volume and shine. Anyway the saran wrap didn't add anything it actually took away.

But I suspect, that its really good if you do it after a roller set. So, I'll probably try that in a couple of weeks.

BTW: My hairdresser still refuses to tell me what products she's using on my hair, which is starting to get really annoying 1.)because its my hair and I have the right to know what the heck you're putting on it and 2.)that's an insecure and childish way to act.

My goal is to go through the rest of this year and all of next year without flat ironing my hair.

Vinegar Vinegar....All a girl needs for soft hair

Once again, I'm singing the praises of this everyday household item that people take for granted. I;m talking about your regular average distilled vinegar. I've taking it step further by using it as a leave-in spray. I figured it works so well to rinse my hair with then why don't I just leave it in.

So, I put it in a spray bottle about 2wks ago, sprayed it on my hair and styled with curlformers. Absolute softness, less porosity (sp?, all around shine and manageability, and 80-90% less shrinkage guaranteed. Bet your bottom dollar that no product on the market can claim these results without toxic chemical ingredients.

Lets just say. I found a new staple for life. Its cheap. Its quick. Its safe. Its amazing. Well what else can I say but...try it for yourself.
