KINKS: ARE YOU ADDICTED TO TWIST-OUTS?.
Hello Bloggers! This was an interesting topic for me, posted by my hair crush Chime Edwards @ chimeedwards.com. I ask the question “Are their do’s and dont’s for kinky coily hair?”
My Question to Chime and other experienced naturals. Should their be a standard for new naturals? What are the staple style options? What is the formula?
My experience in class: A girl in beauty class embraces her natural hair. She is now one of two rocking natural texture. The other is ME*. I’v been natural for four years and offer her tips on style and care when she asks. Her hair is damaged and often looks un-kept. Sacrificing “good hair”(healthy hair) for length she sits in class with picks and styling tools jammed in her hair.. It seems inappropriate. I admire her car-free approach but Im mildly offended. Am i being silly?
Any thoughts or suggestions on this? …please leave your comments below.
I recommend these products to my people on a budget. As always, a special shout out to Sheena’s Hair Care for using natural and organic ingredients to care for your curls and curly styling.
Sheena’s Hair Care uses natural and organic ingredients to reduces build up and the clogging of pores. The line is complete with three simple formulas Sheena’s; Hydrate leave-in cleanser, Nourish leave-in conditioner and Strengthen leave-in protein treatment. Sheena’s Hair Care is made and manufactured in Canada and can be purchased online.
TRESemme Naturals is affordable and effective. I recommend lightweight, sulphate-free and non silicone based ingredients for shampooing and conditioning kinks and curls. To winterize my hair I use large twists then lather up each section with TRESemme Naturals conditioner mixed w/ distilled water and glycerin for a deep moisture treatment. I use almond oil as my sealing oil sit for an hour and rinse with water.
When I work with heat, to prep, silicone base ingredients are recommended to prolong the life of my straight styles. I recommend Pantene Smooth collection and heat styling sprays like Red-E to go. A silicon based product offers a layer of protection and prevents moisture from complicating your sleek style. Use a quality deep conditioning treatment like Joico’s K-PAK protein rich conditioner after heat styling to fortify strands. These tips will produce your most predictable and long lasting results.
