Hair: My Favorite Products & Styling Tools
Happy Friday Peeps! So, last night, I got a ton of love/comments/questions about my hair! I thought now was the perfect time to divulge my favorite products and and styling tools that help me tame this mane!
I then do a really good wash with my regular shampoo, Shea Moisture Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Shampoo. This stuff feels and smells amazing! Not only do I use it, but Marcus and Davin use it to wash their hair as well!
After I wash my hair, I get out and dry it with a tshirt. I never use a towel because it's way too much friction on my strands. Next, I then section off my hair, kind of like a beach ball with triangle like sections meeting at the crown of head. For each section, I first apply the one product I will never live without, LEAVE IN CONDITIONER! My current fav is Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Leave-in Conditioner.
I then detangle each section with my Denman brush, starting from the ends and making my way towards my roots until I can pass the brush through without interruption.
Once detangled, I apply Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie and then two-strand twist.
Once the section is twisted, I apply a little Taliah Waajid Curly Curl Cream to the ends.
Since it was about 1:30 am, I threw on my bonnet and went to bed with semi wet hair. I woke up the next morning, took down my twits and then got out my blow dryer and diffuser. The Conair Toumaline Ceramic Styler has worked great for me since I purchased it a couple months ago.
The diffuser helps me keep my coils intact.
I set the the heat to high and the air speed to low.
Once its mostly dry, I separate the twists with my fingers and then pick it out with my not-so-secret weapon...my pick!
I hope this list and these links help! If you have any questions, feel free to leave them below in the comments!
One day, I'll video this entire process of doing my hair and I promise to update this post once I do!
