AfroVeda Product Review

AfroVeda Twisted Ginger Almond Butter Review

AfroVeda Pur Whipped Hair Gelly Review

Afroveda Claim:

"This old-fashioned recipe blends Almond Butter with our Ayurvedic Herbal Blend for maximum softness,shine,manageability and growth.It provides a soft gentle hold for styles like braids,twists,strawsets,and more. Also provides curl definition in naturally curly hair while moisturizing and softening hair at the same time."

Omg thats all I am going to say about Afroveda products. I used the Afroveda Totally Twisted Ginger Almond Butter and Afroveda Pur Whipped Hair Gelly and can I say I had a twistout that turned so many heads including men asking me how do I get my hair to look like that. The butter melted instantly in my hair and left my hair moisturized and soft. I noticed that my hair responded better with Afroveda Pur Whipped Gelly than Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding. The curl definition that Afroveda products provides is amazing. The pictures are not the best quality taken from my blackberry but here are the results of a 3 day old twist out.

Price: $9.00

Natural Hair Daughers

After reading LocRocker I was inspired to do a post about my daughters natural hair. When I am out with my daughters I am always getting ask if I am going to put a relaxer in my oldest daughter hair. My response is always heck no. I want my daughters growing up loving their natural hair regardless of how thick curly coily kinky it might be. I do not want my daughters to feel in order for them to be accepted their hair needs to be straight or look a certain way. A lot of parents put chemicals in their daughter's hair to feel that it is the only way they can manage their hair.I feel that we as parents have to do what is best for our children hair. One of the things I can not stand is to see a child with rubber bands on their hair that is too tight until you see the white bumps around the edges. I use the same products for my hair in my daughter's hair. I deep conditioned and use hot oil treatments the same way I would take care of my hair. I do not use heat on their hair not even a blow dryer. When I braid my daughter's hair in order to get it stretched I wash it and plait in 8 sections and wait 2 days to make sure its very dry and braid that way. I just love to see little girls with natural hair the way God intend for their hair to be.

7 Months & New Color

I wanted to try some different with my hair. I got tired of my ole plain hair color and wanted something a little vibrant. So here is the results of my first hair color since I have been natural. I have noticed that my curls in the front became looser and not as curly but overall I am loving the different look. What do you think? If you would like a pair of Thread Earrings you can get them here.

Kinky Curly Curling Custard Results

Here are the results of Kinky Curly Curling Custard. I wore my hair like this for a week. I really love the Kinky Curly Curling Custard but I am not happy about the price increase from $26.00 to $29.99. I am looking for an alternative that would give me great results but with a lesser price tag.

How I applied Kinky Curly Curling Custard

Clarified hair with Oyin Honey Wash I really love how it does not stripped the hair.

Knot Today applied a lot from roots to end in sections with dripping wet hair
