Don't forget to tilt your crown to dah left...just'a lil bit 👑
took me forever to b**w out my hair trying to refrain from using heat. so i blew it out on a semi warm to cool setting using @sheamoisture "smooth & repair b**w out cream" as a protectant and proclaim "heat spray" protectant👈🏾 (yes 2, i'm so serious) that's how afraid i am of damaging my curls again with heat. !!traumatized!! anyway, my crown came out perfectly blown. like my little brother says, "i'm tilted"
Close-up shot👑 you have no idea how good your curls can become until you start doing the right things for your hair.
if you don't learn how to treat your hair it can never be the best it can be. just always make sure you experiment and identify what works for your curls. i'm telling you some products i see people love and it works for them my curls don't get that result. but as i always trial and experiment more and more i know what products are my personal favs💁
not every curly girl is the same. we all have so many differences eventhough we are all connected to the love for our hair. know your own hair👌👑🙌 other people can inspire you but through your own trials and experiments you will educate yourself and know what is best for your hair💛
Alas! i finally figured out what's been wrong with my hair! as mentioned in my last post, i'd been treating my hair like it was low porosity for the past year or so, so i was staying away from protein treatments, heavy sealants, & certain types of products. over the past week i began to do more research to figure out what the hell i was doing wrong! i'd done tons of research on low porosity hair, but hadn't done any on high porosity hair. bingo! the characteristics fit my hair to a t. yesterday i loaded up on products i'd heard to be good for high porosity hair, & got to work! i first cowashed with carol's daughter cleansing cowash, then did a palmers protein pack (i didn't opt for the stronger aphogee treatments because i've been natural for years & don't use heat or color my hair, so i figured i needed a more mild treatment). i left it on for 20 mins, rinsed, mixed 2 dc's (tgin honey hair mask & shea moisture manuka honey & mafura oil mask) used my q redew steamer, let it set for an hour, & rinsed. immediately after rinsing my hair started to dry quickly like it always does, so i literally ran & for my aloe vera gel, which is a known holy grail product to seal high porosity hair. instantly my hair felt like butter & my curls popped 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾. i left my hair with aloe vera only for over an hour to see if it would dry out & it didn't! it stayed like butter! 😩🙌🏾 so then i used my k***y curly knot today as the "l" in my loc method, a mix of olive & castor oil as my "o", and used carol's daughter hair milk + my new shea moisture jbco strengthen & restore leave in conditioner as my "c" or cream in the loc method. as i applied my product i didn't see a white residue like i usually do, & my hair didn't feel wiry (an indication that the hair cuticle is raised, thus letting moisture out). i did a twistout, & it came out beautifully! 😩😩👌🏾❤️
