A lot of product for a LOW price 🤑
OKAY curly girls of cherie. Let me put you on to Mielle if you haven’t heard of them already. Disclaimer: I have not tried everything YET. But wanted to get this in front of you so we can compare notes. ➿➿I have 3a/b curlzzzzz ➿➿ If you are really looking for some deep moisture this Hawaiian Ginger line is for YOU. The shampoo is a bit difficult to pump out, and you need to use kind of a lot of it to get some good suds (if you’re into that) 🧼 but overall it’s pretty nice. I thought it would be more fragrant but it’s not! It’s kind of like a calming ginger tea 🫖 MIELLE - Moisture RX Hawaiian Ginger Moisturizing & Anti-Breakage Shampoo

New Haul For All My New Friends!!
Looks like I’ve been getting some new followers here on ze cherie. Hello and welcome!! Thought I’d share this haul that’s been sittin in my drafts for a minute. Just got allllllll these goodies from PATTERN beauty for my 3a curly tresses. Fun Fact: Tracee Ellis Ross is the founder, and was my valentine once (I’m not lying. At all.) She launched styling products a little bit ago and I’ve been super excited to try these. I’ve been pretty consistently on my natural hair journey for a few years now and I’m always down to try new products! PATTERN - Styling Cream I personally think this cream can totally work for some folks. I have really fine hair so it can get weighed down pretty easily. This cream is thicc unlike most other curl creams (way thicker than my usualOuidad - Advanced Climate Control Featherlight Styling Cream ) so a little can go a long way — for me, bc there is A LOT in this tub. One thing I can truthfully say with this brand is they really paid attention to the amount of product curls need and the value is THERE for the size and quality. PATTERN - Hydrating Mist I’ve tried many hydrating mists. I don’t give this one top marks though bc I just don’t like the smell. It’s too floral for me. It also hydrates I guess?? But idk how I feel about it — I haven’t found the perfect hydrating mist that helps tame the mane on my extra frizzy days. PATTERN - Hair Pick if there is one thing I CAN say about the styling tools is that auntie Tracee came thru with the qualiTEA! This pick is strong and comes with a velvety sleeve. You can tell they did the most with tools on this line bc the PATTERN - Edge Tool is also 💯 and pairs nicely with the PATTERN - Edge Control or even the OUAI - Matte Pomade PATTERN - Mist Spray Bottle this is also nice but the biggest difference is it can hold a lot more water. Maybe like 20% more than you can get from the ones on Amazon. THE RUNDOWN Value ✅ Quality ✅ Efficacy ✔️➖(it works fine it’s just not my favorite) Would I repurchase? Not sure. But there is so much product I honestly don’t know when I’ll even have to buy more 😂
Easy & Quick🔥 Get Rihanna's gorgeous curls with black-owned hair products at home!
I am a big fan of Rihanna, not only for her chill songs but also for her gorgeous look! I mean, although all of her looks are quite amazing, I love her natural black hairstyle, which is bold and beautiful! What's more, it only takes a few steps to get this look! Step 1: Gently washing The most important thing for natural girls is keeping your hair healthy and hydrated. I like to use MIELLE - Babassu Conditioning Shampoo and their MIELLE - Moisture RX Hawaiian Ginger Moisturizing & Anti-Breakage Conditioner. Mielle Organics is a black-owned beauty brand, and all of their products are organic and sulfate-free with nourishing ingredients to help fight breakages. Washing my hair with those shampoo and conditioner helps me to add more volumes to my natural hair! Step 2: Applying curl-defining cream It's better to apply a curl-defining cream when your hair is still wet because frizz will start to appear as soon as the hair begins to dry. Scrunch some cream through the lengths for a deep moisturization. I use MIELLE - Brazilian Curly Cocktail Curl Cream containing Brazilian organic oils to keep my curls defined and healthy. Step 3: Air Drying My advice for natural hair is avoiding bowing out your hair as this can dehydrate the ends and stimulate more frizzes! Therefore, I always leave my hair air-dried and put on a sheet mask during that time. Step 4: Refreshing The last step is to refresh my hair with MIELLE - Pomegranate & Honey Curl Refreshing Spray, which has a fruity scent and helps me hold my curls for the whole day! However, before you jump into the tutorials, I'd like to kindly remind you that this is a long curly black hairstyle with layered bangs, so you need to trim your layers on both sides at least every 6 weeks. Hope this tutorial can help you! Love you guys xxx!
get the samples. gel is worth the hold!
it's another wash day which means new products to try. I've been fairly committed to Act+Acre - Mini Cleanse + Conditioner the last few washes. always remember to 1 shake the product and 2 shampoo twice. a little goes a long way. Emulsify!!!!! after shampooing twice (I used MIELLE - Moisture RX Hawaiian Ginger Moisturizing Leave-In Conditioner and MIELLE - Honey & Ginger Styling Gel in my last wash which did not pass the water soluble test. this means it is probably causing build up on my hair) I conditioned and detangled with my Wet brush - Wetbrush Shower Flex next I tried my SAMPLES JESSICURL. - Rockin' Ringlets Styling Potion gives great slip. you do need to ratook the sample. after all it is a small amount but the sample packet was enough to fully cover my head. I made sure to to 4 big sections and make sure I got it in there. gives great slip. I then used my #behairful - the professional detangler[products]#[FiveStars] to comb through sections for great definition I used my sample of JESSICURL. - Spiralicious Styling Gel which has a flax seed gel consistency. I was able to get about 3 quarter size amounts out the sample that u used the praying hands method to massage in. I scrunched in the last quarter size amount throughout my hair wet plopped for about 10 to 15 minutes in a shower cap I intended on diffusing but work meetings pulled me away and by the time I picked my the blow dryer, most of my hair formed a cast. but I diffused a bit nonetheless and I've posted pictures of my day 3 hair. any suggestions or recommendations?
decent hold great shine but do I smell like soda
I am absolutely committed to the Act+Acre - Mini Cleanse + Conditioner movement. Cold process implies that there is no manipulation to the products in the conditioner or the shampoo and you are getting actual benefits from the products you are using. Cold process implies that there is no manipulation to the products in the conditioner or the shampoo and you are getting actual benefits from the products you are using. If you are trying this product for the 1st time 2 things 1 always remember to shake it and 2 you will need to shampoo twice. Now theMIELLE - Moisture RX Hawaiian Ginger Moisturizing Leave-In Conditioner Was given to me by my younger sister who was not a fan of the sent or of the product itself. Are used this still in the shower on soaking wet hair and rubbed through from ends to root. I used my Denman brush to comb the product through evenly. then sectioned my hair to apply half a pump of the MIELLE - Honey & Ginger Styling Gel once again massaging from ends to root then combing they with the denman brush and scrunching. onto the next section. I take fairly big sections because I'm trying to hurry up. once all sectioned and combed through i took one pump, mixed with water, turned upside down and scrunched my entire head. I focus on the back of my hair as my tail tends to straighten. and then wet plopped in a shower cap for about 20 minutes whilst I rinsed off, got out the shower, facial routine including a 15 minute sheet mask. then I took the shower cap off to air dry for about 10 more minutes. I diffused for a bit to get the wetness out of my hair then ate dinner, air dried until bedtime. then I put on a bonnet and the pictures are this mornings results. let's see what day 3 and 5 hair look like. I also haven't sealed with oil. does anyone think it smells like sprite though or is that me??
Curly Hair Tips 🌀
If you're reading this post you and I probably have something in common, curly hair! You've probably also heard "your hair is so beautiful" all your life and thought about how much you wished it were straight and easier to manage. Well 25 years of curly hair has taught me one thing, most people (yes even hair professionals) don't know much about curly hair and keeping it healthy! Here's a little about my hair journey: ￼I didn't wear my hair down consitently until I was about 23, it was always in buns unless it was straightened ￼I had bleached hair for about 5 years ￼I did a big chop and cut all the blonde off 2 years ago When I chopped off the blonde I made the decision to only work towards healthy hair so how am I doing that? ￼No hair color, I haven't dyed my hair since chopping the blonde and yes I have really wanted too. It's not worth my hairs integrity and I'm too spontaneous - I'd be a new color every month. ￼Sulfate free is the way to go, but you don't have to quit using shampoo. Of course you shouldn't be washing your hair daily, but shampooing and cleansing the scalp is IMPORTANT! I wash maximum twice a week, one of those being a co-wash. All the products I have are sulfate free. ￼Find products that work well together! Mix a small part of your leave-in with your gel, if it pills and separates it will do that on your hair! Don't use them together. Product lines are formulated to work together, start there if your having a hard time. ￼Not all alcohol is bad, if it's on the ingredient list it should be a fatty alcohol. I still try to avoid it if I can! ￼Wrap your curls up in silk or satin at night to reduce frizz and extend your style! ￼No heat. Like ever. I've straightened my hair once in two years and missed my curls! If you do straighten it once in a blue moon, use heat protection and the lowest heat settings you can. ￼Care for your scalp! Use an oil, scrub it in the shower, stimulate your scalp at night. A happy scalp means happy curls! Here's some of my favorite curly hair products: ￼Camille Rose - Lavender Fresh Cleanse ￼Camille Rose - Oud Rich Infusion Moisture Treatment ￼Camille Rose - Rose Cleansing Milk ￼Camille Rose - Lavender Crush Defining Gel ￼Camille Rose - Honey Hydrate Leave-In Hair Conditioner ￼Camille Rose - SOYlicious Curl Enhancing Conditioner ￼MIELLE - Babassu & Mint Deep Conditioner ￼MIELLE - Moisture RX Hawaiian Ginger Moisturizing Styling Gel ￼MIELLE - Moisture RX Hawaiian Ginger Moisturizing Scalp Treatment ￼THE Mane CHOICE - Ancient Egyptian 24 Karat Gold Twisting Gel ￼THE Mane CHOICE - Heavenly Halo Herbal Hair Tonic & Soy Milk Deep Hydration Conditioner ￼THE Mane CHOICE - Heavenly Halo Herbal Hair Tonic & Soy Milk Deep Hydration Pre-Poo ￼THE Mane CHOICE - Prickly Pear Paradise Minty Scalp Purifying Spray

NOUGHTY-Curl Taming Cream
I recently was looking into getting new hair care products because the stuff I was using just wasn’t giving me what I wanted. I have very course thick hair, in desperate need of moisture. I had been watching Brad Mondos video on YouTube for a little bit and saw he had a haircare line. (I know he’s not JUST a youtuber but also a licensed hairdresser. I saw some good reviews and decided to bite the bullet and order some. Firstly, the products are on the pricier side but it is a more prestige haircare line. I don’t mind paying the price if it performs. Secondly, the scent is so so so good! It’s not overpowering or intense but it’s just enough to leave a nice scent after washing and drying. Here are the products I’ve tried so far: XMONDO - Prismatic Glow - This is what you see swatched on my hand. If you swipe to the second photo you see why it’s named prismatic glow. The product literally turns into a purple iridescent color. This has saved my hair. I was going through changing back from a bright orange to just blonde so my hair had gotten some bleach damage. This made my thirsty hair quenched and super soft. Made it feel like I didn’t even bleach my hair. Having such thick dry hair, I only need to wash my hair once a week so I use this as my normal conditioner. This product has Argan oil and baobab oil to leave your hair extra hydrated. I have already bought another one for when I run out! XMONDO - Electric Rain Moisture Cream - I use this when I get out of the shower for some extra hydration and to help detangle any left over knots from towel drying. This product leaves me hair super soft even when it fully dries, I can tell a huge difference when I don’t use it. This product also has argan oil but includes rice proteins to help rebuild your hair hair structure. This has helped me through my bleach journey as well. They guy who does my hair even noticed and was super interested in the products! XMONDO - Salty Sea Salt Spray - Is this a need? No. But if you’re like me and super lazy with styling your hair, it gives a nice textured wave to your hair without the added heat. I spray this on towel dried hair and then braid my hair and sleep on it. In the morning I have cute little beach waves. The only problem is it is a bit drying but understandable because it is a sea salt spray. Plus can we talk about how cute the packaging is?!? In conclusion, I have really enjoyed all the products I have gotten from Brad Mondo’s haircare line and will continue to purchase. I also want to try out his dry shampoo and glitterati styling serum!

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!
Kinky-Curly- Knot Today, Natural Leave In / Detangler
Cantu leave in - Holy Grail for Curls
In the post about my hair routine, I mentioned this product. I wanted to save this for last because the best for last of course! The other two products mentioned I haven’t been using for too long but for this product I have been using it for about 3 years! It was complete game changer for me! I wanted to start this off by first telling you a little bit about my hair journey! Now both of my parents have thick curly hair, so there was no way I was going to get out of that one. When I was younger, my hair was wild, I got so many flyaways (and still do! So if you have any recs...) I looked like Einstein. It would take forever to comb with ALL the knots. I used to be jealous of other girls with sleek straight low maintenance hair as this is a more common hair type for South Asians. After I cut my hair in middle school my hair got BIGGER and curlier, I would just put it into a ponytail or bun, it would get all matted and took years to comb out plus the PAIN. In high school, I started doing my hair open. After my hair dried during wash day, I would put lotion in it (body lotion) and do 3 braids into a bigger braid into a bun and slept in that. When I was getting ready for school, I would untie and slap on a ton of mousse and gel into it. My curls were defined in the front but areas I didn’t reach were poofy and frizzy (possibly my hair crying for help). Freshman and some of sophomore year of college, I straightened my hair every week to go to school (blow dry AND flat iron). To top it all my hair wasn’t very damaged? Aside from split ends, my hair was fine, amazingly. Around the middle of sophomore I wore my hair curly, I used some products I don’t remember and Shea Moisture. Then I discovered Cantu’s leave in conditioner. This was before I discovered scrunching and pulsing so when I slathered it on, I was shocked to see how effective it was! My curls looked so well defined and this look lasted many days afterwards when I tied it in a loose bun. I have used this leave in conditioner with both argan oil and shea butter and I haven’t really seen a difference between the two? I use this after I shampoo and condition. I usually take it in and scrunch and pulse and then wring my hair of extra water. I edited this picture for clarity to show you how my curls looked at the end of the day after I washed it today. My curls are defined with very minimal frizz! I don’t feel grease or sticky residue left over from the product nor do i find any strong scent from it. I can not recommend this product enough. However..I must give you a warning. Cantu is not a black owned brand, if that’s one thing you’re looking for keep that in mind. I’ve seen some people in the natural hair community cancelling this product, saying it’s drying. This hasn’t been the case for me (if down the road it turns out to be I will make an updated post). So I urge you to research and test the product before actual use and hopefully it works for you the way it has for me!

2 pumps to soft & silky locks ! 🥳
Firstly let’s just take a moment about how cute is the packaging! Found this randomly in walmart. I have frizzy + curly hair. I use two pumps of this serum on my wet damp hair & let it air dry afterwards. This is 🌱 cruelty free and all the other good stuff. It’s not sticky at all & very easy to apply. The results are quite evident from the very first usage. Once dry your hair feels more light , shiny & those curls feel so softtt!!!! 🤩🤩 I absolutely love this one. & this small bottle goes a long way. Anybody with dry, frizzy hair can definitely give this one a try. Xoxo💋

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
