I come to you from under the dryer. I may just die from heat stroke....but at least my bantu knot out will be on point. LOL no but it really is hot as hell under here!
I digress. I was sent the new Coconut Shea line from Eden BodyWorks today. It came right on time for my mid-week cowash. So I wasted no time putting the products to use.
I was pleasantly surprised by the All Natural Cleansing Cowash. It had decent slip and produced a thick lather. I had no issue detangling with my comb, and my hair felt soft and supple after rinsing.
After that, I applied the All Natural Curl Defining Creme and began twisting and bantu knotting my hair. The product applied very easily, felt super moisturizing and left a great sheen on my hair.
I then applied some of the Control Edge Glaze to complete the bantu knot set.
This brings me to my current situation---they hooded dryer. So handy yet so....torturous!
There's no way my hair would dry in these knots before Saturday so, I do what I must.
I can't wait to see the results. Expect a full review in the coming weeks. Check out my Instagram for pics of the finished look.
**If you live in the DC area and are attending the "Style with Eden" event at the Mandarin Oriental hotel Thursday, May 16th I'll see you there :)
Check out my little feature over on Headline News TV's website. I shared my thoughts on the natural hair "movement" and the role bloggers are playing in it. A few other natural hair bloggers/vloggers were featured as well. Too cool!
Sooo here's a post on one of the not so glorious things about natural hair: hair balls!
I absolutely loathe seeing shed hair. It's just so gross to me. With that said, I have failed to find a tolerable method to err prevent my shed hair from clogging my drains.
My tub became clogged, and my handy maintenance man discovered...this!
Seriously?! A hair ball larger than my fist was inhabiting my drain. Honestly I was shocked (and disgusted.)
I wouldn't normally post something like this, but I figured it could serve as a warning.
I detangle in the shower but figured most of my hair was caught in my comb. I was clearly wrong.
Now many of you probably already have drain covers to capture your shed hair. Or if you're like me and can't stand the sight of it, buy a Zip It! It basically goes down the drain and grabs all the hair.
So I finally got around to finishing the wig and I love it! I'm sticking to this self-imposed protective style challenge for as long as I can manage. (Feel free to join in!)
This is the Truly Jolly Brazilian Kinky Curly hair. I lightly combed it out for a bigger/frizzier look.
Here's what it looks like wet...
I can't wait to play around with it, trying different styles and maybe even some color.
I posted a video on my thoughts of the hair so far.
