3 Day Twist Out Bliss

Happy Monday luvs,

I hope you all had a great Mother’s Day Weekend. Mine was great, but more on that later. I decided to go with a twist out this weekend for the simple fact that it’s quick easy and super cute. 

I used one of my absolute favorite product lines for moisture, OGX Quenching Coconut Curls.

  
These products are so rich in moisture and my hair LOVES them. I cleansed and conditioned my hair with the shampoo & conditioner and then applied the Coconut Milk Anti Beakage Serum. I love using this product to help lock in moisture.

  
Next I installed medium size twists using the Curling Hair Butter. This product has a lot of slip and feels really good on my hair.

  
About these twists though, so much life!! With my new much needed cut, which you can read more about here, they were the perfect length to pull forward. 

   
    
   
The next day after applying a little extra coconut milk, I unraveled these bomb twists for my day 1 twist out. Nice definition and a decent amount of texture for day 1. Ya’ll know I love lots of texture! 

  

 
Day 2 Was similar to day 1, but had a bit more texture.
  
And day 3 is my favorite day for texture. It’s just bigger and better! 

   
 
OGX Curling Hair Butter is pretty much my go to for twist outs these days.

  
 If you haven’t tried this line of products I definitely recommend it.

Alikay Twist Out

Hey lovelies!

Last month I had the pleasure of shopping the curlBOX office at their holiday party. Two of the products I snatched up were these products from the Aalikay Naturals line

  
I had never tried this brand before so I was excited to have them gifted to me.

This weekend I decided to give them both a try. I used the Honey And Sage Deep Conditioner to both cleanse and condition my hair. 

  
Let me just say, this stuff right here is amazing! The thing that really won me over with this product is that when I was done and my hair was soaking wet, I went to squeeze my hair of the excess water and there was nothing, NOTHING!! My hair had soaked up all of the water! Talk about moisture retention! I have never had a product allow my hair to do that.

Once my hair was clean and conditioned I applied the Moisture Rich Hair Parfait to set my twist out and hopefully seal in all that water.

  
This product is nice and thick! I applied it to all of my hair and twisted it

  
In the morning my hair was FULL of moisture, and the definition was everything!

   
  I have no idea what took me so long to try this product line, but I will definitely be trying more.
That’s it for now.

XOXO,

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!
