Hola Mamis! I'm still feeling twists so I've decided to do some 3 strand twists on Kurly T. We washed and conditioned with Mixed Chicks, I detangled with Suave Almond and Shea Butter Conditioner because the slip is amazing and so is the smell! We oiled and banded to dry overnight. This time we styled with a sample packet of Taliah Waajid Kinky, Wavy, Natural Herbal Shine and Style. I got this sample from the Taliah Waajid Natural Hair Care Center in Atlanta, GA. They are right around the corner from where I work and I never knew it. The place from the outside kinda looks like a hole in the wall, but, I digress. This product was creamy and thick and we like that! It smelled awesome, kinda like a sweet candy. It gave awesome curl definition when I applied it to the section to be braided, so we might have to use this on an "out" style. It left the braids and twists shiny and didn't weigh them down. The twists came out plump and juicy, this will be an awesome twist out! We've also used the Protective Mist Bodifier from Taliah Waajid. It is an awesome detangler and moisturizer. I put it in a spray bottle and add water and oils for a spritzer. Our glitter beads are from Curly is Cuter. We hope you likey! Happy Styling!
The Taliah Waajid Kinky, Wavy, Natural Herbal Shine and Style is the TRUTH! After 2 weeks her braids had very little fuzz! OMG! This is my new favorite product. I picked some up at the local BSS for $4.99. I can't wait to use it again! I probably could have left these cornrows in for another 2 weeks, but my Kurly T is an active 2 year old and she likes to roll around on the floor and ground outside so it's a must that we wash often.

I've had Senegalese Twists in my hair for about a month and I felt like doing some twists for Kurly T. We washed and conditioned with Mixed Chicks, oil and banded to dry overnight. I used Blended Beauty to style with, cuz that's what we're loving right now. I cornrowed the front and parted the back in triangles, banded and sister twisted. Sister twists are 2 strand twists that have the 2 strands twisted counter clockwise individually before twisting them clockwise over each other. (I hope that makes sense). Our butterfly beads came from Curly is Cuter! We love them! We hope you likey. Happy Styling!

Hey y'all! We're back again with another style! I love Blended Beauty! I can't say it enough! We washed with our trusty ol' faithful Organix Coconut Milk and conditioned with Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Treat Conditioner. I mixed our oil mix in the conditioner along with some Rosemary Oil and Peppermint Oil and did a deep condition (DC) for 15 minutes with a plastic cap. We went on vacation to the beach and I had to wash chlorine and salt water out of her braids a few times. So I thought we'd DC this week. My lil lady did very well at keeping her plastic cap on for the full 15 minutes (mind you she's only 2 years old!) After rinsing out the DC we conditioned again with Suave Professionals Almond and Shea Butter Conditioner to get the smell of the DC out. (The DC didn't smell bad, just super mint-y!) But the Suave Almond and Shea Butter conditioner smells so good! It gave awesome slip so I detangled with it before rinsing. I moisturized with Giovanni Direct Leave-In and sealed with coconut oil and put in banded ponytails to dry overnight. The next morning I styled with Blended Beauty again, this time using Curly Cake Shake to moisturize and comb(never comb dry hair)and Down and Out Styles to cornrow. Again, we got shiny, moisturized braids! I love this stuff! A little goes a long way and the hold is a-ma-zing! For more info on Blended Beauty Products click HERE. Hope you likey. Happy Styling!
