I had done the “Big Chop” 3 times before I started this set of locs. I wore them for less than a year. Now I’m on to “Big Chop” #4. Oh well.
The rest of the pics are on my Flickr. It shows how I started my Locs from two strand twists
I found this at the beauty supply along with a lot of other products that I’m being very slow to review. Probably because I’m not that good at taking pics.
It was about $6.00 for a 16 oz jar. That’s a good price especially with some of these “natural” products prices. Not that it’s billed as being for Naturals, I’ve just noticed that some of the prices on these products are up there.
Anyway I tried this on my daughter before I braided her hair in cornrows. I wanted to build up her hair’s strength since she insists on killing her hair with the flat iron :/
It was a good product but I wouldn’t recommend using it without a follow up moisturizer since the hair seemed a little bit hard.
I didn’t use anything other than the Parnevu Organic Hair Mayonnaise since I wanted to see how it worked on its own.
The verdict? I liked it but it threw me off because I was expecting it to be a little more moisturizing by itself. WILL purchase again!
Her hair after blowdrying only and NO OTHER oils, creams, or conditioners in her hair. It is nice and shiny and feels stronger. I was surprised how now it felt after only drying it since it felt kinda hard when it was wet.
Here is her little protective style- cornrows in the front with box braids in the back. Since she can’t keep her hands out of her head I have to braid it up.
I don’t know what this other face. Sometimes she acts like a maniac lol!
I almost passed out when I started pulling these out of the bag :) I am an admitted “product junkie” and I don’t care! I liked Curl Control Custard, which was actually more like a watery gel and the and the Curl Activating Shea Butter Leave In the most out of all of the products.
The Curl Activating Leave In comes in two formulas: one for wavy/curly and the other for kinky hair. They both worked about the same to me but I couldn’t stand the smell of the one for kinky hair. It was sickeningly sweet- but that’s just how I am after smelling hair products all day for 15 years.
I put the leave in in my client’s hair and it made detangling so easy it was ridiculous! Seriously I wanted to call all of the most difficult tangled/heads in and comb them all out!
The Curl Control Custard laid her edges into a nice smooth wave pattern. Better than the tiny pomade they had in their line.
So the Curl Control Custard and the Curl Activating Leave In are my top picks!
P.S. I have NEVER had a client be so happy with how ONE product, let alone TWO made her hair feel.
P.P.S. The shampoo was pretty nice too, but we were all caught up in the other two :)
I agree to this 1000%
“My natural hair doesn’t make me brave…my extensions don’t mean I’m afraid” (by chescaleigh)
My girlfriend Nicole and I had quite a chuckle during fashion week when the door girl complimented Nicole’s fro by saying she was “so brave”. Um…thanks? And while I’m always flattered when people compliment my locs, I can’t stand that so many then criticize women wearing perms, weaves and extensions in the same breath. How you decide to wear your hair is your own personal choice. Let’s not let hair be yet another thing that divides our community.
