Save 20%

Did you guys get the email to save 20% at CurlMart.com? Welllll… get to it! The coupon code is SAVE20 and it is good through September 5th.

I plan to get more of the My Honey Child – Olive You Deep Conditioner. I wasn’t a fan at first, but I really like it now. I just add additional Extra Virgin Olive Oil to it and it’s grrrreat! It has quickly become one of my favs. I also would like to try a moisturizer from My Honey Child. The one that I want, CurlMart doesn’t sell, so I may go with the My Honey Child – Sweet Almond Hair Milk.

I’m thinking of getting the Aubrey Organics – Honey Suckle Rose Conditioner. I heard a few people swear by it.

In addition, I wanted to try a different sulfate free shampoo. Any suggestions? I was going to try My Honey Child, but all of their scalp cleansers got bad reviews. They said some of the products stink and they’re also too watery. Perhaps the Wen – Sweet Almond Mint Cleansing Conditioner?

What are you planning on buying?

XOXO,

Bantu Knots

I’ve been meaning to try Bantu Knots for a long time. I just knew that if I did them, my hair would never dry. Recently, I saw a pic of my friend and her hair looked fabulous. I asked her what she did to her hair and she told me that she dries it some, then two strand twists it, then Bantu Knots it. I don’t know why it never occurred to me to do Bantu knots on dry hair, but I decided to try it last night.

I twisted my hair with some Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Curls – Creme Brule. I did a bunch of Bantu Knots. I wasn’t sure how big or small I should do them. I tend to do my twists smaller than most people because I feel like my hair gets too frizzy when I do bigger twists and have to separate them. I like good definition in my styles. In any case, I did my Bantu Knots slightly bigger than the sections I usually use. It was pretty quick and easy. I had to use a bobby pin to for about three of the twists because the ends just weren’t staying tucked in.

Here are the two strand twists in Bantu Knots…

This morning I unravelled and untwisted and this is what I got. Unfluffed.

…and the final outcome. Usually when you see me with a headband in the front, that means something went wrong with the part that falls in my face. LOL

I think it came out pretty good. I’m not sure what I expected, but I like that the ends are all curled. A lot of times, I end up with straight ends when I do a twistout.
