One product wash n go?
The Odele line of hair products at Target caught my eye for its simple packaging and decent price. I tried one of their shampoos and conditioners but this is more about the Odele - Air Dry Styler
SLIP- Omg! It’s like a mix between a gel and serum. Almost like lube. Lol. But seriously the slip is what I loved most.
DEFINITION- It clumped my curls together so good to give it definition.
NO CRUNCH- I hate crunchy curls. It still had a cast but it wasn’t crunchy at all.
PRICE- It’s on par with other sorta-luxury drugstore hair products. I paid $11.99.
INGREDIENTS- I’m not usually strict about ingredients like sulfates or phthalates. I think they’re in most products for a reason. I am skeptical when products have a million ingredients, so I was actually impressed that it only contained 16 ingredients. For those who care, it boasts no sulfates, formaldehyde, phthalates, parabens, dyes, or synthetic fragrances. Vegan and cruelty free also.Product Cons:
DRY TIME- I felt like this made my hair take longer to dry than it usually does.
FLAKING- I was a little confused when I started to break the cast to fluff my hair. Tiny flakes? How? That usually only happens with crunchy products.
SHRINKAGE- This really isn’t the product’s fault and it probably occurred because water is the first ingredient.
MOISTURE- My hair had some good shine but after I broke the cast, it still looked kinda dry.
LONGEVITY- My Day 2 hair was disappointing. I pineappled it and covered it before I went to sleep but it looked frizzy the next morning. Probably because of the lack of moisture.

Shea Moisture Curl Smoothie!
So ever since I started to get serious about my curly hair journey I’ve been on the hunt for good products. This product by SheaMoisture - Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie has been my go to for years now. I use it twice a week; Once on my wash day and then again the next day as a refresher. I use it immediately after the shower, with the gel of my choice, on my wash day. And then the next day I use only a quarter size with some water to just refresh my hair. This product helped me get my curl pattern back. It hydrated and gave life to my very heat damaged curls. I could immediately tell the difference after using this product. It has a thick consistency and it’s so good for you hair. It gives my hair a bouncy and shiny look while also hydrating it as well. It comes in a big container so you’re not likely to run out of it soon so I would definitely say it’s worth every dollar. Since it is a smoothie it is packed with amazing nutrients for your hair and you’re not likely to run out of it soon because a small amount goes a very long way!
SheaMoisture-Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie
My natural hair can be a doozy sometimes! I'm relaxed but my hair is so damn thick yet still fine at the same time. Plus it's porous. So I'm prone to dryness & breakage. My hair's worst enemies! Recently, I started using the chihaircare Keratin range & I've noticed such an improvement in the texture & quality of my hair. For starters, I don't experience nearly as much breakage as I used to. Which is helping my hair get thicker 🙄& hopefully retain some good length too. I've also noticed a DRASTIC difference in the way my hair holds on to moisture now. My strands are the most thirsty lil things. I can actually go a few days without moisturizing & my hair isn't drier than the Sahara. 🙌🏾 I can't recommend this line enough! This is the line you need to try if you're struggling with breakage & moisture retention.

Curly Hair Routine for Fine Low Porosity Hair
A successful wash day starts with using good curly-friendly products and treatments! If you're new to your curly hair journey, don't be discouraged if you're not seeing the results you want. It takes time and with continuous use of good products, your hair WILL transform I like to start my washes with a pre-poo treatment, that is a hot oil treatment. I do a scalp massage for about 10 minutes with the oil, and apply the rest to my hair and let it sit for about 30 mins. The oil I use is RIGHTEOUS ROOTS - Righteous Roots Rx Next, I rinse it off with shampoo! My favorite shampoo of all time is Bounce Curl - Enzyme Gentle Clarifying Shampoo I also really like Bounce Curl - Pure Silk Moisturizing Shampoo when I'm feeling for a moisture boost. It provides the perfect amount of moisture and doesn't weigh down my fine hair at all! After shampooing, I follow up with Bounce Curl - Super Smooth Cream Conditioner or if it's deep conditioning day, use my all time favorite rawkyn - RED rawkyn Clay Hair Mask Styling products: Normally use a leave-in conditioner and gel to style, but in this video, I experimented with 3 products- mousse, leave-in, and gel! The results weren't too bad, but I did feel it was probably too much product for my hair . I think I'll stick with 2 products 😊 Products used: NOT YOUR MOTHER'S - Curl Talk Curl Activation Mousse Uncle Funky's Daughter - Curly Magic Curl Stimulator and Uncle Funky's Daughter - Good Hair Styling Cream

Keeping my blonde bright & shiny with orlandopita’s Ampli-tint Color Depositing Hair Mask & Recast Tinted Oil Spray Glaze. I’m always trying new products that will help to rid my hair of those brassy tones and the cool blonde ampli-tint mask just made it to the top of my list. I’m all about purple shampoos, but purple conditioners usually don’t do it for me. This product, however, actually does deposit enough pigment to make a serious dent in the warm tones in my hair. If you’re not blonde, Orlando Pita still has you covered with a range of shade options to keep your color bright (shown here in cool blonde & golden blonde).

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
