I hope everyone had an awesome Independence Day! My long weekend started on Friday with hubby and I spending the first half of the day shopping for the new house. I loved pending time with that guy ❤
When I woke up in the morning I really felt like I wanted to go with a simple wash and go for the day. The only problem was we were completely out of Eco Styler which is generally what I would use. I was a little discouraged until I saw this sitting in my product closet
I had used this foaming mousse for a flexirod set and a couple of twist styles but never a wash and go. I decided to give it a shot. I wet my hair in the shower and applied the product using no particular method at all. I just got a hand full of product and ran it through my hair. The results? This BOMB curly fro!
These are the kind of results I would get from a 3rd or 4th day wash and go, the absolute best days for the style as far as I’m concerned. The bonus with this product is I can achieve those same results on day 1!! Not only that but my hair was incredibly soft! No crunch at all to this wash and go!
I was so impressed with this look that I attempted to duplicate it on the Saturday. Instead of just applying the product to wet hair I tried to add some methodology to the process by sectioning my hair and applying the product to each individual section. The results were nice but I think my no method messy application on Friday yielded better results
Either way I was very pleasantly surprised with my wash and go results using this product.
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.
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?
