Weekend Hair Plans?

Weekend Hair Plans?

What are your hair plans this weekend?

I’ve been experimenting with the Design Essentials Natural line for a couple of weeks now. I plan to do a review next week after trying the Cream Gel once more (using a different leave-in). I used the Stretch Cream two nights ago to style my Twist-n-Curl. It goes on a little rough and dries somewhat prodcut-y. On the bright side, it provided a lot of moisture and the definition wasn’t too shabby either. I turned the very moisturized but somewhat frizzy set into a fabulous and voluminous high bun (pictured above). I can get this look to last through the week as long as I tie it up at night.

Weekend Hair Plans?

This weekend, Gia permitting, I plan to:

-Deep Treat with My Honey Child’s Olive You Conditioner

-Detangle with Aussie Moist

-Use Shea Moisture Volumizing Conditioner as a leave-in. I picked this up at Target a few days ago… I can’t walk past a product that claims ‘volume boosting’ even though I know it’s usually just clever marketing.**

-Style with Design Essentials Defining Cream Gel

**What product label claims are you a sucker for?**

    Today was a DT conditioner with Yes to Carrots Conditioing hair Masque and some oil blend I had put together a few months go (dont remember what was in it0). I'm doing a twist-out with castor oil bended with other oils and Jane Carter Solution Condition and Sculpt

  • Tray says:

    Girl, Gia is TOO precious!

  • Sabrina says:

    Well I washed and put color in my hair. Finally used my V05 Tea Therapy Reviataling Conditioner and lets just say my hair was feeling like butter after this. My hair felt softer than it does when I used a moisturzing conditioner to detangle my hair. I'm just waiting for it to finish air drying right now.

    I washed and conditioned my hair a couple of days ago and put it up in about 20 two strand twists. I plan to just apply my spritz mixture of water, coconut oil, EVO and aloe vera juice and then add a leave in conditioner and then roll the twists up on satin covered sponge rollers. I'll take it down in the morning to rock a twist out on Monday and Tuesday

    Nikki….I stumbled onto your site on Friday and you gave me just the inspiration I needed to get this mop of mine back in shape! I went natural December 2008 and havent looked back…Ive been in the house the past couple weeks on crutches due to a pesky heel spur and let my hair dry up and frizz out!! I seriously had the brillo pad going on here but I washed and conditioned and even twisted up my hair! Thanks for the inspiration!!! Im contemplating the henna next…guess we'll see!

    Moisturising!I am drawn to all products that promise moisture!

  • Jo Jo says:

    I did a braid and curl after being inspired by Nikki's hair!It always looks full and lovely so i thought i would give it a try. I usually do 6 braids but i did 12 and it looks fierce! So thank you Nikki for your wonderful blog and sharing great tips and tricks!

    Loving the photos of Baby G as she grows. Q-t-pie!

    This weekend I plan to keep my hair moisturized and sealed. I may clarify and DC this weekend in order to try a new product line for me–Bee Mine. Tonight's my 20th HS reunion so I plan to do an updo.

    Products featuring aloe Vera and BTMS always get me.

    I was looking for Gia yesterday. Glad to see her today. She is beautiful–look at those cheeks.

    Cute baby.

    I have yet to find a review of Bee Mine or this My Honey Child Olive You Deep that actually reviewed the product. Some people are such PJs that I can tell they are just excited to try something new, rather than giving an accurate review. I hope Curlynikki will review the Olive You.

    This weekend I am wearing twists, nothing exciting.

    My favorite style for my thickness and length right now is a bantu knot out. For me, it comes out as a curly afro. It's my signature look…I get tons of compliments on it. I'm gonna rock it today and Sunday. Sunday night, gonna shampoo wash then give myself a homeade protein treatment (yogurt, mayo, egg yolk, honey, and olive oil). I hope it turns out ok! Then deep condition and not sure how i want to style it after that.

    I am a recovering product junkie – but I am still a sucker for products that claim to offer moisture….

  • battlekat says:

    I plan to do a flat twist across the front and two stand twist the back. I hope is comes out right.

  • CurtlyKid78 says:

    I did a eco styler olive oil test tonight. I like Eco styler…will see how my hair looks in the morning

  • KCAS says:

    I plan to use some Ouidad Deep Treatment (my hair loves it!!) plus some Aussie or HEHH and finalize with the Curly Primer (Teri's method).

    Nice to see Baby Gia here! You and your husband have been blessed: she looks adorable!! Congrats!! :-)

    Gia's curls are getting longer! :)

  • CH says:

    I've gotten much better at resisting the hype, but my radar does go up when I see the word algae because Aubrey Organics Blue Green Algae Hair Rescue Conditioning Mask works so well for me.

  • Ms. Sassy says:

    I plan to condition and retwist with Miss Jessie's Curly Meringue.

  • Unknown says:

    Hmmm I fell back in love with Yes to Cucumbers conditioner…. I LOVE the shine and softness!
    I feel for the "handmade goodness" and my oyin in on the way. Honestly! I worry about me!! LOL@ My system works. My products work, my hair healthy and growing like MAD! So WHY, did I but it? If it ain't broke…well…maybe my system will get better… maybe my hair will be even more fab…maybe I need a shrink! <> I still can't wait til it gets here!!!

  • BargainClipper says:

    If the product says, "moisturizing"; I'll take a look at it. If it says, "deep moisturizing" and/or "rich moisture", then, they got me (SMH). Now, that is why I stay away from the stores because "product junk-ism" is real (but I'm workin' on it y'all… "Hi, my name is BargainClipper and I am a product addict." Well, it more like a "conditioner-fiend" because I start getting scared when I have only two bottles left. I can't run out of that stuff! LOL). They always got me digging in my purse. Thank goodness I have a budget for it, but my products are starting to take over my DH's side of the sink and he ain't havin' that LOL. I just tell him, "It's only temporary. You don't have that many products to use on your hair anyway, but I do!" (LMBO)

    Let's see I hennae'd last weekend (and by the way I washed my hair again this past Tuesday after my henna treatment from Saturday into Sunday and I must say my curls are more defined than they have ever been! This was my fourth application). So I will wash my hair with Yes to Carrots Shampoo and use the YTC conditioner and twist. Have a good weekend everyone!

    Anything that says moisture!!!!

    Sometimes I have to make sure I don't grab cat food that I get so excited to see that word :)

  • Unknown says:

    i am giving my fro a break and i am trying other hair styles. just took down my crochet hair style and i am putting in braids….been braiding hair all week and now its time to do my own

    I have an appointment tomorrow for a drastic haircut. Now that I'm teaching and taking graduate classes, I don't have as much time to play in my hair. For the next two to three years, the shorter the better!

  • devastatingdiva says:

    I know this is off topic but that baby of yours is just too freakin' cute!

  • Anonymous says:

    I am always drawn to products that promise to get rid of the frizz.!! I will probably do a hot oil treatment with olive oil. I did a henna treatment yesterday and it feels a little dry not too bad though.Baby G is such a beautiful baby!Have a great weekend everyone!

  • Anonymous says:

    yay i just took out some twist after 6 weeks. Going detangle and treat it :) so excited.
    LOVE MY HAIR :) :)

  • Takeya says:

    I have such hair envy whenever you post pics of your hair but I can't turn away, inspecting every curl trying to figure out how I can duplicate the look…lol!

    And Gia is gorgeous with such beautiful eyes!

    I'll do a protein treatment this weekend because I'm seriously overdue. Otherwise, trying new styles I saw on YT yesterday. Have a blessed weekend!

  • Lori says:

    I need to do a DC. I haven't done a real DC in months. Not sure what to use though, so I'll browse the forum. Will probably twist or braid it for the weekend just to give my hair a rest, but I won't go out in them.

    In the store I automatically am drawn towards anything that says or hints of "no frizz" and "curl enhancing" or "curl defining". My reasoning is not to actually define my curls, which are very defined naturally, but to tame the frizz so I can SEE the curls better.

    Little G is so, so pretty. Just like a baby doll.

  • Raytosha says:

    i love when you post pictures of baby G. she is extra adorable!

  • Cheryl says:

    I have twist extensions. So all I will do is moisturize with a braid spray and an infusium 23 leave in mixture.
