Loreal Cleansing Balm : Truth or Sad Story?

Loreal EverCurl

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have a new and exciting product that I want to review . Now it’s really not new, but it’s new to my curls. It’s the Loreal EverCurl 6 in 1 Cleansing Balm.  Influenster sent me the product to review for free, and to give my honest opinion.

First off it did not have a strong fragrance , which I loved. I hate opening a product to begin sneezing like a nut. The pump in my opinion is too small, which means to get a nice amount of product you have to keep pumping continuously. The consistency is rich and creamy, which I like. It didn’t feel soapy (slippery and sticky). You get a nice small lather just to let you know it has a cleansing agent in it. Then the whole conditioning affect takes over, and you start feeling your hair softening up. Would I use the product again ? Yes! I actually want to try their other products in the EverCurl line now. You do receive a lot of product in the bottle too, so you won’t feel cheated. Try it! Then report bk to me how you liked it!

Kisses,

 

Right Complexion, Wrong Hair Texture

I can’t reiterate enough on how wrong my title for this article is, and it saddens me that in the natural hair community naturals find this to be true. On many boards I have seen where a dark skinned tone curly has type 3 hair , and some comments would state ” that’s not your hair , it’s a weave” or ” I thought dark skinned curlies all has type 4 hair “. What in the world!!? At first I laughed when I first noticed it because I thought they were joking with her due to a relationship they might have. Nooo. I started seeing this all over everywhere. Some actually thought that the lighter the naturalista was , the looser her curl pattern would be. Sad isn’t it?
I hate to break it down for the ones who thought this , but your hair texture has nothing to do with the complexion of your skin. It has everything to do with your genetics and how you take care of the health of your body from the inside out. Bingo! That’s it! You want some nice shiny , poppin curls? Moisturize your hair daily, make sure you seal your ends, and eat healthy which includes increasing your water intake.
I don’t want to go too far into this because this will take me off subject.
I’ll say this one last time for the naturals that were honestly confused
your hair texture is not based off your skin complexion.
I hope this reaches someone and give them a better understanding. If you have any questions or want to add comments please do below.

What What! Flat Twistout lasts 5 Days!?

I can’t believe it! When I applied my product to my hair and began twisted I said to myself “this is going to be a bomb twistout, and I’m going to get big hair”.

Products Used
Entwine – Creme Jelle Styler
Oil Mixture
Hicks Edge Control

I made sure that my leave-in was applied, because I’m getting wonderful growth, and I don’t need my ends breaking. I started flat twisting really tight and small. I learned with my hair I have to or my roots will end up straight. I want wavy roots as well . My flat twists stayed in my head for three days before I took them down.

Day 1

Day 4

Day 5

Wow! By day 5 I was seriously feeling myself! I love when the twistout gets old, because that’s when it looks the best. I think I could had made it a week, but I just conditioned the next day, because I’m ready to start my protective style challenge. My advice is to just make sure at night you pineapple, and if u can’t just tie your scarf around your head where the knot is on your forehead. That’s it loves! Till next time!

October’s Fierce Curlie!

Hello Everyone!

I wanted to share our first fierce curlie with you! This is the first month this segment of the blog started, and it just so happened in the month of Halloween. Now this curlie captured my eye on Instagram waaayy before this month, and I just had to ask her could I feature her on the blog. I’m so happy she said yes, and the pleasure is all mine that she is my first ever FIERCE CURLIE!

1. How long have you been natural?

I’ve been natural for about 2 years now. Not really counting lol.

 

2. Is taking care of your hair easier or harder than before when you were processed?

Being natural is so much easier! All I have to do is co-wash my hair and use a curling milk or smoothie, and I’m out the door!    I let my hair air dry. When I had relaxed hair, I had to straighten my hair almost  every day because I liked my hair bone straight.

 

3. Name your top three products you can’t live without.

Shea Moisture Curling Smoothie

Argan Oil

CLEAR hair and scalp conditioners

 

4. What advice would you give someone your age that was considering going natural?

Going natural is one of the healthiest things you could do for your hair, especially for people like me who constantly dye their hair. Processing hair over chemically colored hair is not good. Start now!Even    if it’s cutting off the relax hair by an inch or two a month, it’s better than nothing. I’m telling you, the results are worth it,natural hairstyles are versatile possibilities are endless.

“We Gon Sweat This Hair Out, Literally!”

Image

Everytime I think about doing this challenge with myself I giggle. What Challenge Free? Honey, this cayenne pepper mess. Now let me say I did do my castor oil challenge with a few naturals from CurlyNikki last July, and been using it ever since. My mane loves it, so I’m all happy with it. To give you all some quick info let me tell you why scientist say that this really works. By now you all should know me, I’m not one to listen to whoever on Instagram, or these forums because they have long hair, I really do my research. Red pepper contains capsicum which  is a skin irritant that will allow for rapid cell construction, improved blood circulation and hair re-growth. The improvement in blood circulation is important to stimulate the hair follicles and prevent DHT (dihydrotestosterone) from attaching to the hair follicles.Why we don’t want that to happen? 

If DHT is formed and attaches to the hair follicle, it will block nutrients from getting to the hair strand and hair follicle. By doing this it will eventually cause the hair strand to fall out and the hair follicle to die. Now here is when I feel a little bad. They experimented with this on mice. Yes! They did! Well it worked! Those little bald spots filled up on their little bodies like no tomorrow.

With all that being said, I’m going to start tomorrow with this challenge. I will do updates every two weeks with the front of my head, since that’s the main part I want to grow. The question is how long will I do this? Hmm, everyone did a month, so I’m thinking it would be fun to do it longer, just to be different. Let‘s say till I have my son, which is the beginning of August. 

The Recipe

Whole Cayenne Peppers

Dark Jar

Favorite Oil

Rosemary Oil

Directions

Place the whole peppers in the dark jar with your favorite oil covering them for ten days. After ten days remove the peppers and use the oil. It is totally on you how you want to do this. Use it as a deep conditioner aid, or as a leave in. How many days a week to use? Again, totally up to you. Now you might see various ways to doing this, but do the one best for you. I’ll be posting a follow up sometime this week.

                                                                                            Love,

                                                                                            Free

 

 

 

 

 

Fabolous Curlie Kids Hairstyles!

Here is a two strand twist front, with a top knot done on Type 1 hair. Even though this natural kid’s hair is straight her mom was still able to get the twist to hold. The key to getting the twist really tight is to get as close to the scalp as possible. With this hair style she can easily tie it down at night, and remain cute during play time. I think this is a great style for a natural of any age.
