♥ July Wrap Up ♥

HITS

Quenching Coconut Curls Curling Hair Butter        It gives great shine and really helps with definition. I'm not so sure about maintaining moisture, since it does have mineral oil in it. You definitely have to make sure the hair is moisturized underneath before applying this product, but as far as a styler? Yes, it gets my love!

Prepooing with Castor Oil        Yes! It truly aids in finger detangling and making that part of my life a little easier. The best benefit for me is because the clay mix tends to pull from my hair and not really infuse moisture back into my hair, after I rinse the clay out, the hair tends to feel a little dried out. Prepooing with castor oil has definitely comeback that so that the clay detoxes my hair and scalp, but after rinsing it all out my hair still has a nice, silky feel to it. I can never argue with those results!

Mystic Divine Luminous Shining Masque       Yes! Yes! Yes! A great alternative to my ever-trusty ORS Replenishing Conditioner. It's so thick and creamy and soaks into my hair all to easy! It gives my hair so much moisture and great to style with and a nice light scent... It's about $10 (I think) regular price, but you can get a lot of use out of it so I think it evens out. For me, I think it's worth the price.

Wash and Go w/ Clear Ecostyler Gel          Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaasssss!!! I've never truly been into wash and go's up until this one. It had everything!! The coils, the definition, the shrinkage, the sheen, the health, the thickness, the movement, the fluffiness!!!!....... I've never been so proud of a wash and go in my life lol. But I can't say I've never done a wash and go this way before (as far as just a leave in, oil, and gel) so I'm sure this awesome wash and go is NOT jut the results of great product combination, but also the new regimen that I've incorporated which goes to show that great hairstyles are not just about the products you use but also about the way you maintain your hair.







MISSES

Nothing to report.







OBSERVANCES


  • Curls are becoming more prominent and clear as opposed to just hiding behind lots of fuzz and frizz
  • Baby hair layers are starting to sprout ???
  • I have noticed in this month that my hair seems to have gotten thicker as opposed to longer. I'm not sure if my hair has grown in length at all. I've been checking periodically and I can't say I've had a grand growth spurt like I did last month. But what I do notice is that from root to tip, they've gotten thicker. So maybe my hair grows down one month and then out the next month ??? Does that make much sense?
  • It is so easy to deal with my curly hair! I know that sounds off the wall and like "yo, you've been natural for YEARS! Why is it so easy now!?" But it is. I thought dealing with my natural curls and having them have the ability to tangle up with one another would be TORTURE. I always had a wide tooth comb handy, denman, scrunchies, everything but these days? It's just not necessary. My loose curly hair is nowhere near as problematic as I thought it was back in the day lol.



UPDATES


Nothing to report.... I don't think...






But until next time,




♥ Keep it calm 'n coily ♥
