SCANDA-LICIOUS

Hi lovelies!

So….yesterday was all kinds of awesome.  From the voluptuous braid out to the major pop on my lips.  I was totally feeling the entire look.  It was appreciated by a lot of my social family and so I wanted to give you guys the deets on this amazing look!

  
First, the hair.  Oh, the hair.  This look was achieved using products from the Creme of Nature Argan Oil from Morocco line.  What products exactly? Well…these:

  1. Pure-licious Co-wash
  2. Butter-licious Curls Curl Hydrating Creme
  3. Twirling Custard Curl Styling Gel
  4. 100% Pure Argan Oil

Together these products gave me this super moisturized elongated braid out!

  
I absolutely adore this complete line of products.  There will definitely be more styles to come using this line.

Now…the beat…specifically the lips.  This lippie got so much love yesterday.  So, here’s what I used

  1. Jordan Blue Devine Pencil (which is really an eye liner but worked perfectly on my lips)
  2. NYX Cosmetics Wicked Lipstick in the color Scandalous

   

 
This combination was EVERYTHING!

Well…that’s it for now. Until next time lovelies

XOXO

My Favorite Curl Defining Styles

You all know that I don’t do a whole lot in the area of curl defining styles, but l do enjoy playing with curls every once in a while. There are a slew of ways to get curl definition but just a few that I continue to gravitate to. Here’s a look at my favorite curl defining styles and why I adore them.

Twist outs & Braid outs

These two curl defining styles allow for some of the best definition on my particular hair texture. What I love most about these styles is that they are super easy to transition into an updo and can last for multiple days. You can check out the video tutorial for this twist out turned updo using Camille Rose a Naturals products here. The transition from a twist out to an updo starts at about 7:15.



Flexirod Sets

The most fun and flirty curl defining style ever! That’s the main reason I adore Flexi rod sets. The curls come out so beautifully and even though they don’t have the longevity of a twist or braid out, they’re so much fun to wear that I don’t even care! Lol! Check out these curls. 





Bantu Knot Out

This is the curl defining style I have the hardest time mastering and for that reason I love them! Of course the curl definition is amazing but there really is an art to bantu knots. I seem to get a little better every time I do them. This is another style that doesn’t come with a long life span with my hair. But this look challenges me and yall know how much I love a challenge.







Wash and go

Last but not least, the wash and go. This style is great for longevity. They’re easy to transition into buns but not as flexible for styling as a twist or braid out. Either way, there’s nothing quite like defining your natursl curl pattern.



That’s it! What are your favorite curl defining styles?
