Your hair is still so amazing. Thank you kindly for posting your weekly hair routine!
So many great (and affordable!) ideas.
However, I realize that I am much less motivated than you are and would be lucky if I did your *full* routine once every 6 weeks (doh!) The concoction that you mix to twist your hair sounds amazing. Must try it out, but… only if someone else mixes it up for me
The first time I used Mixed Chicks Deep Conditioner ($11), I was in the process of growing out my relaxer. Boy, it was a process alright! My hair is super thick and the transition ended up being too time consuming and costly for me personally. I’m a low maintenance girl and growing out my relaxer was a lot of work, therefore I ended up going back to relaxers. Just so you have a visual, here’s a pic of my hair curly and straight…
This review is two fold simply because I used Mixed Chicks Deep Conditioner before (when I was growing out my relaxer) and after (when I started getting relaxers again). While I was going natural it was such a daunting task trying to choose products that worked well with my hair and helped with the manageability of transitioning from permed to natural. Mixed Chicks Deep Conditioner was one of the products I tried but did not seem to get the results I expected.
This clip is by the Curly Girl Collective and it’s a video montage of the Collective Expressions Launch Event that was held not too long ago in NYC. Here’s the official blurb from CGC:
“The official video recap from Collective Expressions – A Celebration of Textured Beauty, held at Brian Farrell’s Art Studio at Chelsea Modern in NYC. The event was sponsored by hair care icon Miss Jessie’s, in partnership with HEART & SOUL MAGAZINE and Hypnotiq Harmonie, with 100% of the event proceeds going to our charity partner, Petals-N-Belles.“
This looks to have been a very chic (and fun!) event celebrating the beauty of our hair in it’s natural state. Did any of you Beauties get a chance to attend? If so, let us know in the comments!
Check out MsTanish1’s lovely mane in this video clip, which incidentally has nothing to do with hair. I soooo admire the full, fluffy volume she’s got going on and I totally heart the side puff style she’s got it in.
It’s generally a fairly nondescript mass pulled back in a ponytail with barettes holding down the wisps on the sides. OK, I admit that it actually is in a ponytail right now, but not for the usual reasons. I normally wear it back because my hair has a slight natural wave and a tendency to frizziness that team up to render it perpetually agitated, never smooth like the calm locks that so many other women seem to have. But for the past month my hair seems to have been trying out what it might be like to walk on the calm side…
In the never-ending fascination with what grows out of my head, I’ve bought a number of different conditioners just to see how my hair would react. You should try it, it’s kinda fun
Anyway, since I totally adore the combination of affordability and quality that most Suave products possess, I recently bought Suave Natural’s Tropical Coconut Conditioner for a grand total of 99 cents! And, it’s pretty good stuff.
Simply put, this conditioner smells a-mazing. A fab mix of coconuts and what smells to me like apples, I sooo want a body wash that smells exactly like this…
