Afro Chick’s Pick: Hair Milk & Earrings

I wanted to show you guys my funky look from this past weekend.  It was inspired by Carol’s Daughter Hair Milk and Deana’s Earrings and Things .  I am always look for earrings to add to my creative collection and I came across her line randomly. They are handmade crochet yarn earrings and she makes them in all colors of the rainbow. Since red is a popular color to my wardrobe you know I had to cop these.

My Hair?  I have been trying to craft the ultimate fro for quite some times so I tend to try new products and spend hours on youtube teaching myself ways to care for my natural hair.  I am no expert, but when people ask me how do I get it this way, I do not hold back on advice.  I used Carol’s Daughter Curl Definer with Murray’s loc gel to do a two strand twist. (disclaimer: I am not TOO fond of Carol’s Daughter Products!!!)  I kept the twist in for three days, due to my strenuous work out schedule but when I took them out for the weekend I like the results but it’s not ALL THAT.   However, my hair was soft and didn’t feel too cakey or dry at all.  Here are more pictures.  Do share your feedback =)

Twist Outs With Miss Jessie’s Curly Pudding (Revisited)

So, HERE IT IS! I decided that now that my hair is longer than the last time I tried to do twist-outs with Miss Jessie’s Curly Pudding, I’d try it again to see what new results I encounter.   This is what my hair looked like using my old Instructions in 2009.

Twist Outs, No Blow Dry

For the second time I bought the sample size jar and followed the instructions on Miss Jessie’s Twist Out 101 Demo.  I washed and conditioned my hair and when soaking wet and I added a light moisturizing hair milk by Bee Mine products, sectioned my hair into 4 parts, and proceeded with my application of the curly pudding. I used the whole jar with nothing left over.I sat under the dryer for an hour, got lazy and went to bed LOL. I woke up the next day and these were my results when I untwisted:

Step 1: I untwisted each individual twist with my fingers.  Usually this would be the last step for me because I sometimes like to wear my hair close to my face but I decided to follow the full instructions and proceed to blow drying my edges for fullness.

Step 2: I blow dried my hair on medium heat, finger fluffed, and added a dab of Bee Mine Hair milk. This was my result:

Overall, I’m satisfied with my results and not to mention my hair smelled so good up until three days later. I wore my hair for a few days in an Afro and noticed that I had more bouncy elongation BUT it the cold and dry air was not agreeing with me and now it’s flat again.  I will definitely revisit this again in the summer since my hair texture LOVES humidity.  I want to know your results, so try it and DO SHARE 🙂
