When I started working at DevaCurl a few weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to be given a bag filled of DevaCurl goodies from my boss, including Melt Into Moisture. I’ve been using DevaCurl for a couple of years now, but haven’t used any products besides their no-poo/conditioner and gel’s as of recently. I typically deep condition my hair every 1-2 weeks, and I’ve used Melt Into Moisture alone twice since I’ve gotten it.Read More
Hey everybody! I was fortunate enough to receive a package filled with Mixed Chicks goodies because I was one of the winners from the Andrea Lewis Mixed Chicks giveaway. I was super excited to receive the package because I used the products when I was younger, but they weren’t an absolute favorite, so I haven’t dabbled with the products since. Over the years I’ve heard increasingly great things about the products/company and was excited to try them.
For those of you who don’t already know, Mixed Chicks is made in the USA, cruelty free, vegan and does NOT engage in animal testing. Their products are also formulated and targeted for people of all nationalities and hair types. Love it! Now let me give you some background on my hair. Although it’s in very good health/condition now, 2016 was a bad year for my 3c curls. It started with damage from a flat iron in January, to then dying my hair blonde in May and then back to black in September. Since last September, I’ve been working really hard to regain my natural curl pattern and the health of my hair.Read More
I’m a queen crowned in my curls.
Naturally curly hair is a blessing. It took me roughly 15 years to appreciate what I have, but man do I love my curls! Curls require a lot of TLC, but don’t worry! There are plenty of ways to make sure your curly hair is at its best and that bad hair days are kept to a minimum.
1. Throw out the brush
Brushing your curls can damage and break the hair, especially if you’re doing it dry. Brushing or combing your hair while dry will remove the curl shape and will result in lots of frizz. Yikes! Instead, opt for a wide tooth comb. I brush my hair while in the shower while lathered in conditioner. This makes for better results and less damage. Combing your hair will ensure it is knot-free and will help retain the curl. You can find wide tooth combs at Wal-Mart, Target, or Sally Beauty for less than $2.
