Products no longer used on natural hair

September 7th, 2011 No comments

shop at my store: http://www.frogirls.com for cute,fun,fashionable, and inexpensive accessories and natural butters and oils =)!

this video is about the products i do not use since deciding to go natural. many of these products i no longer use because they contain mineral oil or petroleum. after some research, i made the decision to no longer use products containing those two ingredients. some of the products in this video do not contain petroleum or mineral oil– i just don’t use them because i did not like the way they make my hair feel!

Wrapping Natural black female hair

July 31st, 2011 No comments

This is my first attempt at wrapping my hair.
I have been thinking about a way to get my hair stretched/straight without heat or rollers and decided to try wrapping my hair.

P.s. The two conditioners
regular = Phyto Organics Humectin Extreme Moisture Conditioner
leave in = Phyto Organics by Nexxus Luxxtress Leave In Hair Moisturizer

For those wondering what the “point” of this video is was to try it. See if it would work or not. I had only been “natural” 2 months at the time and was figuring out my hair. To document the new things I try. Show other people how it worked for me and that it can be done. Lots of different “points”. So many people are under the impression you can’t wrap afro textured hair that even in the comments in THIS VIDEO someone said “Don’t you know you can’t wrap your hair”. Well you can. It will just have a different outcome than someone with straight hair.

In addition. This video was more than 2 years ago. Come on people, I’m not dumb. I learned about heat damage, and damaging brushing and combing techniques. So for those that don’t look at the dates of videos and are concerned. I use seamless resin bone combs and a denman brush. you don’t have to gasp or warn me that I could, might be or am damaging my hair in this video.

The song: I did an audioswap and it’s Jesenik by ‘The Fensters” under the jazz section?

How I Style My Curly Hair!

June 11th, 2011 No comments

Pretty much me vlogging about my natural hair. Basically, When I am going to wear my hair natural, I always let it air dry and I use my CANTU Leave-In conditioner because it keeps my hair tangle-free as well as moisturized, and it keeps the curls. Any questions? just leave a comment below or send me a message!
