Braid so Hard


The situation: 

1. Coconut oil (Nutiva brand-- cold pressed) pre-poo'ed for 30 minutes
2. Cleansed with Trader Joe's Nourish Spa 'poo 
3. Conditioned with Trader Joe's Nourish Spa Conditioner (I let it marinate for 5 minutes before finger detangling)
4. Detangled like a boss 'cause her hair was already mostly detangled (I french braid it every night)
5. Applied Giovanni Direct Leave-In + a little coconut oil and installed a gazillion curlformers 
6. Allowed to airdry for 5 hours

At some point before take-down, she came to me and said, 'Mommy, I want Elsa hair'.  

And LAWD if I didn't immediately go into your-hair-is-actually-way-doper-it's-the-ultimate-princess-hair #FixIt mode...  

But homegirl was simply requesting a french braid or two, and that, I can do. #StillDidntGetHerThatElsaCostumeTho

DIY- Whipped Butter Cream for Softer Skin and Hair



Tina Munzu writes:

Fall is here which means cold, dry, harsh weather. Such weather can take a toll on both our hair and skin. A perfect remedy is whipping up one's own inexpensive body and hair butter to fight off any dryness and to seal in moisture. Convert the mix into a hair butter by simply increasing the amount of shea butter and cutting back on the coconut oil. Check out this tutorial below for an easy DIY butter that will leave your skin smooth, soft and radiant this fall.

Hola Chicas,

I'm giving away 6 Conditioning Baskets (worth ~$90 each) this month (October 2014) to question askers and answerers!

If you see a curly-in-need who has asked a question under a post, answer it! If you are a curly who has a question that needs an answer, ask it! Not under this post, on all the posts!

The first three baskets will go to the three curlies with the highest number of posts this month (10/1-10/31, comments from previous months don't count) and the next three will go to three randomly selected commenters.  Past winners are eligible!

Which posts/articles count for the contest? All of them!  Good luck!
