Curly Puff

This should have been posted on Saturday, but… I dunno. Read on.

I’m in Floridaaaaa! (Just for the weekend though).

I didn’t want to straighten my hair for the humidity and possibly the pool, so I left it curly. I did a curly puff on Friday morning and used Taliah Waajid’s Curly Curl Cream. I didn’t really love the results. My hair shrunk more and more as it dried and it began to feel hard.

Today I did a curly puff again. This time I used Carol’s Daughter Hair Milk on wet hair. It wasn’t curling as I expected so I added some Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie and my curls popped. I had much less shrinkage and my hair doesn’t feel dry.

I used my usual Fantasia Gel in the front. When I return to NY, I’ll be straightening my hair again. You know I’m nervous about getting ssk’s and straightening it is the only way for me to keep an eye in my ends.



High Bun


After my hair fiasco, I’ve been wearing strictly buns. My ends aren’t even ready for the public eye. I wore my hair straight for the last two weeks. Yesterday I washed it and trimmed my ends some more. I’ll be straightening and trimming every two weeks until they’re good again.

I decided to try the Aubrey Organics Glycoprotein Balancing Conditioner. I was going to buy the Honeysuckle Rose, but I didn’t want something THAT heavy and conditioning, although my ends probably need it. The GPB Conditioner is pretty good. I like the way it smells and it made my hair feel pretty good. I didn’t feel bad for using a lot because I got it from The Vitamin Shoppe and didn’t have to order it online and waste money on shipping.

Today’s style was a high bun. I see all of the young girls rocking this style, so I figured I’d try it.
