A New Technique and Product Combo

By January 27th, 202116 Comments

Hola Chicas,

I’ve been experimenting with a new product combo and technique, but before I share it with you I must try it one mo’ gain… gotta make sure it wasn’t a fluke!

Below are some pictures of my hair an hour ago (it’s now in twists and flexis). This is day 3, and therefore wash day, so I’m trying the process for the third time tonight and should be able to share some reliable results with you tomorrow or Friday.

This set has lasted me through 3 workouts and 3 nights of wild sleeping… it was never super defined, and had that controlled frizz look instead (I love the controlled poof look!). It was shiny, bouncy, and very fluffy. The products I used were lighter than the usual suspects, and therefore my curls didn’t have as much hang to them– for me shrinking means volume, so I was in LOVE!

I’ve received a ton of compliments and after catching a whiff, hubby told me my hair smelled great! He hates the smell of some of my products, especially Oyin’s Almond Whipped Shea. He likens it to dirty diapers.

I promise to report back! I hate doing this to y’all but I don’t want to sing the praises of this mystery routine too soon 🙂

Later Gators,

p.s. I’m craving a Peanut Buster Parfait from Dairy Queen. Hubby said he’d go… that was 2 hours ago! WTH?! Baby can’t wait! If he doesn’t make that move soon, I’ll be rolling out of here in my scarf and flexi rods (haha, looking like the Saturday before Easter Sunday).

    That's so funny. I love my Oyin but the hubby thinks the Almond Whipped Shea smells like a urinal cake.

  • Angie says:

    Wow, love the shape of your hair, how the front pieces are longer looking than the back, it really frames your face well.
