HOW TO TURN YOUR HAIR FROM THIS🤮 TO THIS😍🔥
My hair care journey has not been easy but over time, I turned my EXTREMELY heat-damaged hair into lively, bouncy curls! Pictured is my current hair care routine, after 3 years of trying various hair products from ALL different brands I think I found my favorite lineup😍 TPH BY TARAJI - Honey Fresh Clarifying Shampoo With Moisture This clarifying shampoo is one of favorites that I’ve tried so far! I suffer from fast product build-up on my scalp, so I usually need to use a clarifying shampoo at least once a week. Something about a shampoo that bubbles makes my scalp feel extra clean 🧼 so I love using this on days where I feel like my No-Poo won’t get the job done. SLS/SLES free, phthalate free, paraben free, mineral oil free, and cruelty free! DevaCurl - No-Poo Original Zero Lather Conditioning Cleanser I wanted to love this product because I heard so much hype about it but it just doesn’t do much for when I feel like I need a wash day😅 Great texture though and my hair never feels stripped after using it! DevaCurl - One Condition Original Daily Cream Conditioner THIS IS MY HOLY GRAIL. Favorite conditioner I’ve ever used and definitely has a large role in my hair journey. My curls love this conditioner! (NOTE: the decadence version of this conditioner is great for super dry hair as well) Alikay Naturals - Lemongrass Leave-in Conditioner This is another one of my ride or die products and I was so surprised to see that it hadn’t been recommended on cherie yet! This detangles my hair so easily and it’s the first thing I spray on my hair when I get out of the shower. Its main ingredient is lemongrass oil that aims to help strengthen hair follicles, promote healthy hair growth, and reduce hair shedding. Highly recommend this product for ALL hair types! Kinky-Curly - Knot Today, Natural Leave In / Detangler This product is okay. When I first bought it, I though it would serve more as a gel to seal my leave in conditioners in but it just doesn’t work as well as DevaCurl - Light Defining Gel Soft Hold No-Crunch Styler . This gel creates the perfect shine and seal for all my moisturizing products that I apply before hand. AND I love that it doesn’t leave a crunchy feeling most gels do. MIELLE - Pomegranate & Honey Leave-In Conditioner Another hair care staple. The smell is fantastic and it slips through my hair like BUTTAH😩 Once my hair dries, I’m left with pillow-soft curls! (NOTE: I apply this after my Alikay Naturals Leave-in spray and top it with my gel) Briogeo - Don't Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Hair Mask Last but not least, liquid gold in a tub. Man if I could bathe in this mask I would. I use this mask once-twice a week to add some extra richness in my routine!
Holy Grail Products for My Naturally Coily Hair
My hair is pretty sensitive to new products so when I find something that works for me, it’s rare that I try something new. However, I was drawn towards Mielle products based on all of the good reviews from friends and family with similar hair types to me that I’d heard. The company’s owner is also a Black woman who’s super inspiring and sweet. I put my fear aside, and decided to try these new products on my type 4 hair. I bought the entire line from Mielle’s website and upon it’s arrival, I was in LOVE with how they smelled. I’m really critical of fragrances in hair products because of my sensitivities, but Mielle products smell naturally sweet and similar to its name which in Spanish (Miel) means “honey”. I started using the shampoo and conditioner first just to see if I’d have any reactions before trying the rest of the line. I was pleasantly surprised and absolutely fell in LOVE. I’d definitely recommend using all of the products in order to see the best results. My hair is so soft and moisturized with no product flakes over time. Love love love. The Mielle line is definitely my holy grail when it comes to moisturized and nourished coily hair MIELLE - Pomegranate & Honey Moisturizing and Detangling Shampoo MIELLE - Pomegranate & Honey Moisturizing and Detangling Conditioner MIELLE - Pomegranate & Honey Twisting Soufflé MIELLE - Pomegranate & Honey Leave-In Conditioner

How To Care For Thick Curly Hair
👱🏼♀️ My Hair is naturally very frizzy very thick and very curly. Growing it long and cutting it into a layered shag has helped it to sit a lot more normally on my head but how do I care for it? 👱🏼♀️ Sulfate Free Shampoos: Some of my favorites are Briogeo and Amika. No need to further frizz or poof out my hair by frying it with sulfates. 👱🏼♀️ Anti Frizz Treatments: After washing and conditioning my hair I always use and anti frizz treatment then comb it through with a boar bristle brush to evenly disperse it. Some of my favorites are Reverie Milk Treatment, Amika Supernova Shine Cream, and Vern Ghost Oil 👱🏼♀️ If I want some extra definition in my curls I’ll spray my hair with the Verb Sea Salt Spray afterwards 👱🏼♀️ MINIMAL HEAT!!! I always let my hair air dry and use products vs heat to minimize frizz and define my curls. The only place I use heat is on my bangs because they dry very curly and weird.
my curly hair journey
About 7 months ago I started my curly hair journey. I used to ALWAYS straighten my hair and had no clue on proper curly health. If you’re working to get back to your original curl pattern BE PATIENT! This picture is 7 months straight without straightening my hair and I just recently started seeing my natural pattern come back. Some tips I learned along the way are to make sure you’re using alcohol, sulfate, and paraben-free products! Deep condition, deep condition, DEEP CONDITION at least once a week and always use some sort of moisturizing product before any styling products to keep them curls healthy girl! 🌸
Pattern Beauty made me proud of my curls
For the longest time I refused to wear my hair natural because I couldn’t find products that made my hair look hydrated enough. I am absolutely in love with Pattern and have never received so many compliments on my hair! I’m obsessed and I can honestly give these products a 5 star rating. Absolutely amazing!!
