Wash Day | White & Tan Perm Rod Set

White and tan perm rods

After finishing up my second henna treatment this weekend, I finished up the festivities by doing a perm rod set with white perm rods (7/16″) and tan perm rods (11/16″). This was my second attempt at using perm rods on wet hair. My first attempt didn’t go so well (check out that fail here) but I’m super happy with my results this time around! What I used & What I…

Henna Application & Results – Round 2

Henna applied to my hair

After letting my henna paste sit for 4 hours, I decided take a few suggestions and apply the henna to my damp hair so I hopped in the shower and co-washed with Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea Cleansing CoWash first. I’m so glad I did because applying henna to my damp hair took much less time (30 minutes) and was much easier than applying it to dry hair.

I fully enjoyed how big and fluffy my…

Product Review: Entwine Naturalle Couture Exotique Leave-In Hair Potion and Crème Jellé Styler

1-File Mar 25, 9 43 51 AM

Over the last 3 or 4 weeks, I’ve used these two for twists outs and perm rod set done on blow dried hair. I really love how much slip the Exotique Leave-In Hair Potion provides, how smooth and frizz-less my hair is once dry and set, and how well it sinks into my hair, leaving behind zero traces of products or greasy feel. Used together, the Hair Potion and Crème Jellé Style helps me achieve soft, smooth, and defined twist outs. The definition achieved from the initial unraveling lasts about 3 days until I separate the sections for more volume.

Hair Story Feature: Meet Samantha

Samantha 2016transition

Your hair is? Transitioning to natural When did you start your hair journey? What inspired you? My hair journey started in March 2015 when I decided to stop relaxing my hair and transition to natural. I was inspired partially by my frustration with my damaged relaxed hair and partially by the natural hair movement – I was so impressed by these women who were redefining the definition of beauty that…
