Smooth hair process

Three day curly hair (before hair appointment)

I have often told friends that my hair becomes crazy hair when brushed. As a curly girl, I do not brush my hair often. I only brush my curly hair when I am at the salon. I brush it all out while my stylist is mixing color. I have to admit that is entertaining to watch. Really,  there is a lot of hair and the more I brush, the more it seems to grow!!

Oh my!!

As you can see, it is quite fluffy. I always have a good laugh at myself.

I love going to my stylist. We catch up on what is happening in our lives. We can and do talk about anything, including my dysfunctional family. Unfortunately, the last two visits consisted of me spending the majority of the time talking about my family…I should probably apologize to her the next time. Anyway, my stylist is very patient as she is working her magic. One of the things I really like is that she will blow out and straighten my hair. I am amazed that some people can do one or the other (blow out or flat iron) and have smooth, straight hair. I need both steps to get the same results to last more than a few hours. I also cannot complete the steps myself to obtain a smooth mane.

Hair routine with a new product

On a recent trip to the local Ulta store for Ouidad Moisture Lock, I received a GWP of Ouidad product, VitalCurl. I tested it on Saturday by including it in the product line up. The description of the product reads ‘internal nourishment for lasting definition’ so it may take a day or so to see if the lasting effects are there.

I usually use Moisture Lock immediately after towel blocking my hair and follow this with a large portion of Ouidad Curl Quencher Styling Gel. I did not want to overload with other products since I wanted to see the results of VitalCurl so I used a small portion (one dollop) of the Quencher and then used a generous portion of VitalCurl. I like the texture of the product; it was not sticky or tacky. It even seemed to have a conditioning feel to it.So, this is my hair before drying… wet hair

And, this is my hair once completely dry.

I love the curl pattern!!
