TIGI After Party and Boogie Adventures

By January 27th, 202159 Comments

Two things–

1. The ever phallic Tigi BedHead After Party gave me what can only be described as my best dry twist-out to date. The ingredients, I can’t. Might as well have been written in French. The worst I’ve seen. Terrible. Deplorable. Damn bad. But still, out of curiosity, I used a teeny bit per twist (the same 7 I always have) and sealed with an even smaller smidget of grease. Shiny, bouncy, smooth, rich looking hair. And nope. No pics, no evidence. You’ll just have to take my word for it. I plan to try the exact same routine again this weekend and promise to report back πŸ™‚ In the meantime, take your product junky arse to the store and get a bottle… of the product that looks like it’s working double duty. Thank me later.

2. Creeky ass floor boards. The bane of my existence. Every night, after Gia has ran her last lap, and her groove thang is all out of shakes , I lay her down in my bed to coerce her to sleep. About thirty minutes later, booty in the air, I can tell she’s good and knocked. I then ease out of bed and swiftly and gently scoop her up, scooting fast as hell (think hot potato), across the creaky floorboards to her nursery. It’s seriously like mission impossible. Like I’m sent a message every night that says “Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to put Subject Lil Mama in the bed undetected and exit without incident. This baby will self destruct (in what I’m positive is her version of ‘awww hell naw’) in 30 seconds.

On top of that, she hates to see hubby and I show each other any signs of affection. The minute I reach in for a hug or kiss, Boog, on cue, screams, kicks and demands to be picked up so she can get in the middle, or worse, hug on hubby while coyly looking at me over his shoulder. She does, however, appreciate, enjoy and even initiate group hugs… just no hugs when she’s not around. Let’s hear it for breathing birth control! Boo Boo is on the job.

She dictates sleep schedules, when we eat, what we eat–she likes potato products and chicken strips, that’s it– where we eat, cause we can’t go to restaurants cause she acts the fool (throwing food, attracting unwanted attention from strangers by smiling and dancing, etc.). I sneak off during naps and episodes of Yo Gaba Gaba to do my hair, to clean, to watch a show… but I must rush through everything cause she’s like a ticking time bomb. It’s as if I left my mother’s house only to turn around and have a different woman determine my diet, curfew, and bedtime, not to mention I have to sneak around with my ‘boyfriend’. This ish cray. Love her more than these pork rinds I’ve been going in on, but got damn… What’s funny is that even after all that, all it takes is one of those temple to temple grins, a hip wiggle and a hug where she softly pats me on the back, to remind me that it’s all worth it.

    I used to use that after party stuff before I went sulfate and silicone free. I loved it then to add smoothness and shine to my hair. I kept it in my purse. You can imagine how that went! I almost kind of miss it. Almost.

  • Kimmy K says:

    My Ladybug is the exact same way!!!!!!!

    Going to buy this product tomorrow!

    Thanks, because it said to use on dry hair. I wasn't sure how it would work on wet hair.

  • Anonymous says:

    It's a styler, I have tried it last over leave in and coconut oil.

  • Anonymous says:

    That stuff is $18! Maybe next time.

  • Anonymous says:

    I just brought a bottle but I am unsure how to use it.
    Can I use it as a styler over my leave-in conditioner?
    Please help it's too expensive to waste.

  • Levone says:

    Oh Nikki this had me on the floor. I think Boog is a little younger than my son. He's 21 months. I pregnant with our second one and this one is a girl. I now know what I have look forward too. LOL!

    Aw, look at the Boogiemeister–Yeah I remember those french fries and chicken strip years! She'll let you know when she's had enough.

    P.S. Can I borrow the Boogster, I need her to block passes from my hubby…going through menopause and don't want to be bothered, she'd be a perfect shield–hahahahahahha!

  • Anonymous says:

    I couldn't try that stuff even if I wanted to. My fine hair would be screaming, suffocating on the ingredients. Sigh… but I'm sure it yields shiny hair with all those silicones. I just cant find a strong enough clarifier to get them out.

    Thanks MZCNND! You made my morning! LOL @ DrChuck24 and baby co*k blockers! hahahahahahah!!!!!! I can't… Thanks for the comments ladies! Happy wednesday!

    I've used the After Party on my daughter's hair. It was DA BOMB! The ingrdients are not mentionable but the results were great for a twist-out or braid-out…even to smooth her edges for ponytails….no crunchiness or flakes. Her hair is 3b/c. Thanx for the review-I'll try it out on my hair…it's 4b/c so we'll see what I come out with!

  • Beauti says:

    Too Freakin' cute! and the bottle… even though it's pricey just seems to speak to you on the shelf! That bottle is Loud and asking for attention.. I would pick it up cuz it looked pretty! LOL… Nice post πŸ™‚

  • DrChuck24 says:

    18 bucks? Hell yeah I would be using very little of this product too lol. I cant wait to see some pics…and your daughter is too cute. Love the stories. I have heard AND seen children be cock blockers..its intrigues me lol

    Nikki, I truly love your writing style and commentary. You were born to do this blog and inform/entertain the nappy masses. You also seem to be a great mom who knows how to accept the bitter and sweet of parenting! (Your little punkin is precious!) You seem to have it going on in every aspect of your life and all I can say is "Go on wit yo bad self." (mzcnnd)

    Great post! Too funny about Gia's groove thing being out of shakes!

  • Margaret says:

    Nikki…I just love you!!!! I laughed so much and this brought back memories as well. I can see her vividly during you and your husband's displays of affection. (Live Birthcontrol) Miss Bogg wants you two to know who is really in charge!!! Nikki it definitely is worth it all! Stay Blessed!!!

    The packaging for that product looks like a dildo! LMAO!!! πŸ˜€

  • I Am Your People says:

    1) Love Miss Boogie Butt
    2) They sell Bed Head at Target. Not sure how much it costs since I also can't get past that bottle…

  • Anonymous says:

    Lmao @ Syl..i was thinking the same thing πŸ™‚

  • Syl says:

    My BoogieBear is too cute in those skinny jeans(?), boots with the fur, and that adorable sweater. Styling on 'em. πŸ™‚ Can't wait to see her over the holidays.

    sidenote: This may be a naive question, but is the shape of the bottle intentional? I mean, the brand is called Bed Head. And that particular product is titled After Party…

  • Anonymous says:

    OMG, as usual, you have me speechless!

  • Rhonda C says:

    The bottle — there are no words.

    Boogie – priceless!

    I suppose if I am going to try this product out, I better not sleep on it. Based on my experience in trying to locate a jar of Dax after you put the word out, this "After Party" is likely selling out and flying off of shelves (as I type this post).

    Write a book already! You're a wondeful story teller! Beautiful pic of Gia.

  • tashacu02 says:

    My daughter does those exact same things!! LOL! When I try to hug my hubby, she even says, "No Momma, my Daddy!" Haha! I could be sooooo mad at her, but the minute her little two year old self says, "I wuv you Mommy", my freakin heart melts!!

  • Anonymous says:

    Loved this!!!

  • hairscapades says:

    That lil' baby girl couldn't be ANY cuter!! Wub her!!! I would say, "How could you love someone you never even met?" But, I did! And I played "Peek-a-Boog!" with her!! I have the evidence:)!!

    She looks so much older already!! xoxoxo Boog!


  • CURLYNIKKI says:

    Riteaid for wayyyy to much money (18 dollars I think). But just now on FB someone told me about a comparable product at Sallys… A generic version.

  • Anonymous says:

    Where did you purchase this product?

  • CURLYNIKKI says:

    Thanks ladies! I honestly can't believe how grown the little woman is… she's pooping in the pot and has dry diapers in the morning! It's crazy!

    I'm REALLY liking After Party… I'll keep y'all posted.

  • Anonymous says:

    LMAO at you and Boogie! She's a daddy's girl like me! You've got your work cut out for you Nik.

    You and Gia…TOO CUTE! πŸ™‚

  • Randi415 says:

    These are my favorite updates, even more than hair! Boogie has your house on LOCK!

  • Sophie says:

    Aww, Boogie! These updates always crack me up!! And I love that little sweater in the picture, she's so beautiful already! I have no children and none on the way (degree and husband needed, in that order, before that commences) but my parents always tell us that when they look back you're like "wow, I spent so much money and time on these little things, half the time just to be fussed at, publicly humiliated, and talked back to… and it's so worth it for the little pats and smooches that come along too!" Parenthood seems like an amazing adventure!

    All I can say is hello motherhood. Yes I remember this behavior when my little one was her age. I still feel like I have another mother because I can't do anything with out the words "where are you going?" Just got to love our children. My bear is the best of me.

    That bottle is uhm… a lil… uhm… INAPPROPRIATE?!!!

    Boog is adorable – and I think all lil girls go thru that don't kiss my daddy phase – I don't care if you ARE my momma! πŸ™‚
    Love it

  • Danica says:

    The Boog part of your post had me in tears, Maybe it's because that's my life with a toddler, or maybe it's because I'm almost 2 months pregnant… Whatever it is I understand.

  • Anonymous says:

    I'm a HUGE After Party fanatic. The shape of the bottle is just a plus! Love that Boogie is running thangs, time to give her a brother or sister!

  • Nicky M says:

    I loved loved LOVED the After Party when I was relaxed! I would apply it after I blow dried, before flat ironing…haven't tried it since going natural, but you have me curious πŸ™‚
