Natural Hair: Wash-n-go Puff Using Flax Seed Gel

Hey Curlies,

I have been swamped with work these last couple of weeks. I work full time as a newspaper reporter so I'm constantly on the go. Anyway, my style for the last couple of weeks has been pretty boring lol. I've been washing my hair and wearing wash-n-go puffs.


My line sister bombed my photo lol.


I didn't really take any "hair" shots because like I said, I've been super busy but I will say my curls were VERY defined! I've been using flax seed gel as an alternative to regular gel and my hair loves it! I have a video for you all coming this weekend.

I achieved my wash-n-go puff by washing with Shea Moisture's Jamaican Black Castor Oil shampoo, conditioning with TRESemme Naturals conditioner, spraying on ApHogee's leave in conditioner, applying an oil, then the flax seed gel.

Coming up next:
  • Flax seed gel video
  • Two strand twists

Natural Hair: Curlformers Updo

Hey Curlies,

I am in desperate need of a sit under dryer. I have one, but I left it at my parents' house so the next time I visit them I will be sure to not forget it. I say this because I believe my curlformers set could possibly last longer if I used a dryer. No matter what gel or product I use, my curlformers sets are always flawless, however by day two it starts to get fluffy but I did find a cute solution.

My set the very first day:

  I love this style because it stretches my hair, especially my roots which help when I desire a new look throughout the week. Actually my initial plan when I washed my hair was to do an updo style with the curlformers, but I figured why not style my whole head first?

That night I used the pineapple method to preserve the curls.

Here was day two and my updo style:




Long story short I kept my hair in the "pineapple" shape as much as possible while using bobby pins to keep the shape in place. All of the hair is gathered at the top of my head but I let the right side fall to one side.

I wore this style for about two days and the maintenance was a breeze. I just put my scarf back on the way I did the very first day.

Natural Hair: Curlformers using Eco Styler gel and Shea Butter

Hey Curlies,

I finally got around to washing my hair this week and I decided on some curls using my knock of Curlformers. (haha). I washed using Shea Moisture's Jamaican Black Castor oil Shampoo and deep conditioned with Eden Body Works Jojoba Deep Conditioner. I then let me hair sit a towel for about 30 extra minutes before installing the Curlformers.

It took a little over an hour to install them. I used Eco Styler gel and Shea Butter. Here were my results:




I hardly ever separate my curls, but today I wanted to try something new...




Tomorrow I'm probably going to pin it in an updo,which was first intention, but I thought setting my whole head on rollers wouldn't hurt. Check back soon!

Natural Hair: Castor Oil Challenge Update #1

Hey Curlies,

This is the first check in for the castor oil challenege. I have been applying castor oil to my egdes every couple of days. It does help my edges stay soft, moisturized and slicked down when I take my scarf off in the morning.

I usually try not to brush or manipulate my edges too much to avoid breakage. Here was my latest style.

 
 
I haven't experiemented with applying the oil to my scalp just because of it's thickness, but how has the challenege been going for you?
 
I think it is serving me well. If you're new and want to joing the challenge, click here.
