Argan Oil Wash & Go

Happy Friday luvs!

I just wanted to share the deets on a wash and go I did earlier this week that was everything! Here are the products I used.


Seriously, I discovered a new way to obtain a bomb wash and go using these products but the star of the show was definitely this product right here.


The original leave-in conditioner by Cantu has been a staple of mine since the very beginning of my hair journey so when so saw this Argan oil version, I had to try it.  I am so glad so did. Look at this hair!

So in love with this hair. If you want all the deets on how I achieved this wash and go, click here


Have a great weekend!

November curlBOX Test Drive

Hi luvs!

So this weekend I decided to take my November curlBOX products for a test drive.

  
Super excited to play with some all new Cantu products, I dove in. I started by using the Co-Wash to cleanse my hair. Next I applied the Dry Deny to my hair which is suppose to help lock in moisture. Then I applied the Moisturizing Curl Activator Cream using the shingling method to help my curls pop. Lastly I applied the Wave Whip Curling Mousse. That did something very unexpected. It turned my hair white!

   
 
I was a bit concerned about this. However, once my hair dried I ended up with the softest curls ever! Look at these curls.

   
 
Not that I doubted it but curlBOX came through again with some amazing products. If you’re not subscribed GET ON THE LIST

My Tried & True 

Way back when, before the days of cost efficient product sampling with FULL SIZE products from my curlBOX subscription there was one brand I knew I could always count on.   Cleansing, conditioning, moisturizing, no matter what I needed to do to my hair this brand had a product I could use to accomplish it effectively and at some of the most cost efficient prices in the market. No matter how many products I try this brand will always be a part of my product collection. Cantu, my tried and true.

Last night I used some great products from this brand to co-wash, condition and set my hair for a braid out.



After cleansing my hair with the co-wash I applied my all time favorite leave-in conditioner. This stuff  has never failed me on delivering excellent moisture to my hair.



After letting the conditioner sit for about an hour I followed this up with their curling creme and prepped my hair for a braid out. 



A braid out prepped with any other product I would probably put a little oil on my hands to help with moisture as I unravel the braids. Using Cantu products that step is totally unnecessary. Check out how juicy my hair is!



It is full of moisture and the definition is beautiful! of course I couldn’t just leave my hair like that, I had to put it up. So….here’s the creation for today. 





All of this awesomeness compliments of Cantu Beauty Products, my tried and true! 

Twist Out Roll & Tuck

Hi beauties!

Just wanted to give some deets about today’s hair. Absolutely loving this look.

I flat twisted my hair in 5 chunky sections using Cantu’s Curl Defining Creme.

Then, I pulled the twists into a ponytail in the front and went to sleep with with my satin bonnet.

In the morning I unravelled the twists, pulled all of the hair to the left side, rolled and tucked the hair and secured with bobby pins. Thats it!

I love the shape!

My Current L.O.C. Obsession

Hello beauties!

Sorry it’s been a while. I’m working on something really exciting that I can’t wait to share with you all.

In the mean time, let me introduce you to my current L.O.C. obsession.

Leave-in: Cantu Shea Butter
Oil: Organix Renewing Moroccan Aragan Penetrating Oil
Cream: Organix Moroccan Curling Defining Cream

This combination makes my hair soooo soft! I just love it. I caught these Organix products on a BOGO sale at Walgreens and now I’m hooked! The only downside is that I can’t follow this product combination with my staple curl defining Eco Styler Gel. It leaves a very unappealing white residue.

But…definitely recommend trying these to seal in moisture.
