H.O.T.D- 8/29/2012

So, I achieved this twistout look today by applying Cantu Shea Butter, and some Hot Six Oil to freshly washed hair. My hair was sectioned and left in 12 medium size twist to dry overnight. I love the results and I accessorized my style with a headband! Hope you like!

Review: Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding

If you follow this blog, then you know yesterday I posted a H.O.T.D pic.
If not, you can find the pic here.
I was feeling and looking great, and the products I used were Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding and some EVOO. So, today for the first time EVER on my blog I am humbly submitting my review of this product.
Note: I was in no way paid to endorse, or review this product and all the opinions are solely my own.
So let's begin with a walk through the 5 senses: Scent, Sight, Touch, Taste, and Sound. First, We shall begin with Scent.The product smells heavenly and I was taken back aromatically with the fragrant, lavender smell. I mean, gee it REALLY smells divine.
Next, Sight. The product looks purplish in color and even resembles a lavender, or lilac purple and even comes in a nifty purple container. It has a thick, creamy, non-watery texture as a cream should.  So, yes, I was smitten, as Purple is my absolute favorite color!
Then there is , Taste & Sound, which for my health's sake has been purposely omitted out of the review.LOL. We follow up lastly with Touch, and I will say this: I don't know if the underlying EVOO had something to do with my hands being VERY sticky but I did have looks of icky, sticky residue on hand during twisting! I remedied this problem by simply wiping my hands every few minutes on a few of my son's baby wipes.
So, my all in all Honest opinion of Miss Jessie's :
It is a pleasant smelling, consumer appealing, darn good styling agent. It does curl the nicely as it suggests, it was easy to apply, and a little goes a LOONG way, BUT it isn't budget friendly. It will cost you a nice penny, but in my opinion its worth it. I won this product in a giveaway BUT after first use I will definitely use it again, and will purchase myself!  My hair loved it!
I give it 4 out of 5 stars. 1 pt. deducted because of the residue, BUT otherwise AMAZING stuff.

So, last night I decided at 10:45 p.m. to get started installing mini twist. LOL, I know. My hair was freshly washed with my Tresemme Naturals Shampoo and Conditioner, and then I generously applied some olive oil and the pictured Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding.
Around 1:50 a.m. I felt too tired to go on , so with about only 50% of my hair done, I commenced to tie up my strands and lie down for the night.
I woke up around 10:50 a.m. and proceeded with finishing the install of my new mini twists. I listened to music and was in my own zone. Took about 2 hours to complete, totaling 6 hours from start to finish. I absolutely love the look. I pinned one side for a bit of  pazzazz, and VOILA! Miss Chastity is looking good.

It has positive words, images, and Beautiful Black people.It is by Dead Prez , a Rap/R&B group, who also happen to be some natural, handsome brothers.

H.O.T.D- 08/5/2012

So, today, I decided to try something different for church. I had prepped my hair for a twist-out Thursday night, and woke up Friday to some lukewarm results. I was so upset I picked it and commenced to wear it in an afro. It was later Friday night before bed that I decided once I got baby to bed I would try bantu knots. So, I simply sprayed my dry hair with a spray bottle mix of water and EVOO. I added shea butter for moisture and sealed with Castor oil. The results turned out better than the twist so I wore them for 2 days(Saturday and Sunday).
The hairstyle featured is my hair on day 2.It is a side-swept style held up with two hair combs plus reinforced bobby pins.I loved these results and even got a few compliments at church. Be Blessed. Hope you Enjoy!
Do you like this style and would you also try it? Have you tried it before?Let A sistah know below...................................
