The day- April 20, 2012
The time- 12pm
The place- Happy Valley, PA
Let me set the scene...
After a trim, a much needed henna session and a deep treatment (DT), I was very eager to try this new, much hyped styler. The dilemma- although I was ready to rinse and twist, said styler hadn't been delivered yet. As Gia napped, I compulsively refreshed the UPS tracking page as I caught up on part 2 of the RHOA reunion. Triflin'. Anyway, it showed that it was 'out for delivery' but time was ticking and I knew Hurricane Boog would be blowing through any minute.
FINALLY, the UPS man pulled up, and unable to contain my excitement, I damn near tackled him... flung the door open before he could ring the doorbell, looking all crazy with my plastic baggy and heat cap all velcro'ed up. I ran upstairs and immediately rinsed the DT, blotted the drippies and raked a little leave-in through my damp hair. I then applied the styler in sections as I twisted. I ended up with 13 twists and rolled the ends on the tiniest flexi rods ever.
Six excruciating hours later, my hair was 95% dry and like a kid on Christmas Eve, I just couldn't wait any longer. The result? A shiny, bouncy, fluffy, moisturized Twist-n-Curl with decent hold. I'm talking ZERO crunch, ZERO gunk... my hair felt product-less but looked magnificent.
This morning, after a strained pineapple (at this length, low, loose ponys seem to do better), I'm happy to report dope second day hair.
What's this mystery product, you ask. Let me try it one more 'gin, and I'll tell all next week. No side eyes please. Y'all know how I hate prematurely singing the praises of stuff. However, if you happen to guess correctly in the comments below, I might be obliged (I'm bursting at the seams) to dish. A hint... it's a *new* moisturizing styler.
