I am just trying to understand my hair, to learn what works and what doesn't, to experiment, make mistakes, and to embrace my hair in it's entirety..... because Roots Don't Lie

Well Hello There Puff

Hey Guys,

It has been ages since I wore my hair in a puff! I had a twist-out on Monday but when I went to the gym I put my hair in this puff to work out and it has been like this since Monday.

I twisted my hair using the entwine products from my last post.. And I haven't had to re-moisturize my hair since then. My hair feels very soft and moisturized.

At night I simply tie a satin scarf on the part that's pulled up and go to sleep. I should probably cover the puff part but my sheets and pillow case are satin so I did not think that was necessary.

My broken off edges seem to be growing back in.. slowly but surely my edges will be re-stored.

Twist Out With Perm Rods

Hey Guys,

I decided to co wash my hair last night and try out a new hairstyle:

Products used:
Co-wash : As I am Coconut Co-Was Conditioner
Leave-in Conditioner: Karen's Body Beautiful Sweet Ambrosia
Stylers: Entwine 'Creme Jelle Styler' and 'Exotic Butter Cream.
Purple perm rods.

My hair did not have time to dry completely, and so when I took down the twists my hair was still damp.

If you would like to see a video tutorial please leave a comment.

Product Trail Group: December/January Edition

Hey Guys,

Continuing with out product trial, Here is our review for the month of December, which also kind of extended into January because we all got busy over the holiday period.
Here is a review of the TRESemme Conditioner line done by Tsme.

Product Review: TRESemme Hair Conditioner (Moisture Rich)
Price: $3.99 to $5.99

Trail Period: This product was tested for over two months

Hair type: My hair is natural, and is also colored at the tips. Due to the color, my ends are usually dry, and require a lot of moisture to keep it from breaking. Most of the products I get are geared towards repairing my hair. I have tried out other types of TRESsemme conditioners but I never got the same result I did with this particular one (Luxurious Moisture; for dry/damaged hair)

How I used it:
- For Deep conditioning
- For Co-wash
- For De-tangling

- Locks in the moisture in my hair
- Not too thick
- Inexpensive
- Leaves my hair really soft

- Did not help retain the color I had

Ratings: 4 out 5 stars

Will definitely buy again
