So lets talk about natural hair! I had big bouncy curls as a child and then when I was 10 I was taken to get my first relaxer….BIG MISTAKE! I continued getting relaxers till about 7 years ago when I met Becky at the Kenneth’s in Dublin. She convinced me to grow the relaxers out and I am so glad that I did because honestly I still had to flat iron my hair when I wanted it straight but now I don’t have all of the chemical damage. I don’t think I have the best curls but thats what the good Lord gave me to work with so I have just learned to embrace it.
The only downside to going natural is that when the humidity is high there is no keeping my hair straight….it just gets puffy. July is usually super hot in Ohio so I was on the hunt recently for a new curly product to use. I am mixed so typically products for Caucasian hair don’t work that great for me but on the flip side some Black hair products are too heavy. Whats a girl to do! I saw Ouidad at Ulta and instantly the Marketing compelled me because of the diversity they showed in the models! I walked out with these three products as well as a shampoo sample pack just incase I didn’t like it. I have kinky curls but I also bought the beach wave foam.
My process was to wash and apply the Melt Down Mask for 30 min. Then I rinsed with cold water and applied the Immersion section by section and dry with a defuser attached to my GHD Dryer . Here is the finished look, I will say that if I do curls for a week usually the curls get better after a couple washes. The pic makes them look a little frizzy but they really aren’t its just back lit.
Old Kate Spade Dress, my shoes are Classic Salvatore Ferragamo Kala pumps in Navy which are fairly hard to find but I did see that Zappos has some right now. Usually Bloomingdales restocks them.
Here is a pic from today all I did was put a tiny bit of water in to reform the curls on top but Im really happy with this because usually I can only get one day out of my curls.
If you get Lemons today paint them pink!
