Hey everyone! It feels so weird to be back on my blog again, but now that I have more free time I promised myself I would be more active on here. I'm so excited to share more on here that I don't get the chance to film or always remember to snap pics of on my Instagram. But any who, I hope that you are all doing well and I am so excited to be sharing new updates in my hair journey with you dolls.
Let me begin by explaining the 90% of the time that I have been natural (which has been all of a little over 3 years) I have spent wearing wigs, weaves, or having my hair straightened. I have now decided to actually embrace my natural texture. Keep in my that was always my intentions, hence why I decided to go natural in the first place, but I never really wanted to take the time to figure out what works best for my natural hair. The most I would ever do is a twist out... sad sad sad. Now adays I really want to see more of my curls popping! I have been experimenting with new styling and products which I have noticed have caused my curl texture to really intensify. I am sooooo happy about it!! Below are some pictures and a group of products that I have used in my hair over a course of 3 days. I just wanted to share a bit of my new routine with you all. I plan on doing more post such as this and just letting you all know what I am doing to embrace the styling of my natural hair. (Smiles)

-Organic Root Stimulator Smooth-n-Hold Pudding
-Design Essentials Strengthening Therapy Shampoo
-Design Essentials Organic Cleanse Shampoo
-Carol's Daughter Black Vanilla Leave-in conditioner
-Beyond Zone Noodle Head Leave-in conditioner
-Josie Marine Argon oil
-One-n-Only Argon oil hair mask
-spray bottle containing conditioner, olive oil, and water
On the first day I decided to rock a twist out. I shampooed my hair with the two Design Essentials shampoos mentioned above and deep conditioned with the One-n-Only hair mask. After rinsing out my deep conditioner I sprayed my hair with the CD leave in and applied a small amount of Miss Jessie's Con dish Leave in conditioner. I applied the Noodle head to each section along with some of the ORS smoothing pudding. If I felt as though my hair was getting damp, I sprayed it with a bit of my mixture in the spray bottle. The video pretty much explains it all...
My hair air dried over night and I removed the twist and separated the strands for a bit more volume.
Day 2 (Sorry no pictures):
That night I decided to secure my hair into a few Bantu knots in order to preserve some curls. I moisturized my hair with a bit of the ORS smoothing pudding then sealed with the Josie Marine Argon oil. My hair sat over night and I removed them the next day as shown in the video. It had lots of body and texture which I love!
I did not any more product to my hair that night. I simply created larger Bantu knots, tied with a scarf and went to sleep. The next day I removed the Bantu knots and decided to do a little front twist at the front of my hair. It was super adorable, but when I began filming I threw it up into a high bun.
I hope you all enjoy this post along with the video. Any questions, comments, or concerns; of course just leave in the comment section. Look forward to more post such as these. Thanks for stopping by my page!!
