If you have yet to try the Aussie Moist/Garnier Curl Sculpting Cream Gel combo, then you have no idea what you’re missing! I haven’t been this in love with a product combo since DevaCare One + DevaCurl Set it Free. Holy Grail status? Perhaps πŸ™‚ I’m not trying to enable you guys… I’m just sayin’… all the cool kids are doing it!

I was *supposed* to give Kinky Curly a whirl last weekend but after reading your suggestions of trying it with the Knot Today leave-in, I decided to hold off for a bit. I resorted to the aforementioned combo and on day 3, my curls are still soft and fluffy, defined and relatively frizz free. This is truly a keeper, and at 6 or 7 bucks total for both products, how could you not try it?!

After shampooing, DT’ing with MyHoneyChild’s Olive You (AMAZING!) and detangling with Aussie Moist, I rinsed my hair clean and got out of the shower. I waited until my hair was 70% dry, and then applied Dabur Vatika Coconut Oil to the length (concentrating on the ends) and divided my hair into two. I started with the left side and applied a silver dollar sized amount of Aussie Moist Conditioner as a leave-in. I then applied a pea sized amount of Garnier Cream Gel to each twist as I went. I repeated the same steps with the right side and then sealed the ends with Vatika oil, rolled them on flexi rods and put on my satin scarf (pirate style to help my roots and edges to lay down). In the morning, I released the twists and fluffed. I’m loving the extra control and the shine… I’m sure I’ll get a full week out of this set!

In other news, Gia is a friggin’ month old today! To celebrate, we took her to the NC Art Museum. Why, you ask? Because it seems that she has an affinity for the paintings hanging around the house, plus, the Art Museum rocks! I’d love to be able to tell you that she had a fabulous time, coo’ing at paintings that she found to be particularly awesome and thought provoking… but she slept the entire time.

Later Gators,
Nik
