When it comes to hair, I think that everyone should have the opportunity to have fun.
Wear protective styles! Play with your texture!
Overall DO you!
Since I've been doing me for the past two months, I decided to try out more natural styles.
A Canada based beauty store named Aonebeauty.com allowed me to try out some brands that they sell. I have a beauty supply store near me but it's so popular that everything is always sold out!
Shopping online gives me..
A) More selection.
B) The opportunity to try lot of the products that my fave USA bloggers are talking about :)
C) Deals and allows me to save money!!!
Let me point out that I'm not being paid to promote anything.
I'm just a bride-to-be/new home owner who now pays bills and can't depend on mommy and daddy anymore.. LOL!
Moving on.... I have a very TIGHT and defined curl pattern. Shrinkage is NOT my friend. I've always heard really good things about elongating curling gels. I decided to give Aunt Jackie's Curls & Coils Don't Shrink Flaxseed Elongating Curling Gel ($8.99 CAN) a try.
Now I'm currently obsessed!!!
- Moisturizing conditioners
- Shea Butter
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Omega-3 fatty acids
I didn't know that flaxseed is a natural remedy for scalp health!
It's anti-thinning and promotes hair growth.
It's best to use it on clean hair. Like fresh out the shower hair!
When it's slightly damp, I take a nice quarter sized amount in my hands and apply it from root to ends. I tried it on hair with product and it didn't go so well when I wanted curls but worked well with twist outs. Just something to think about.
Have you tried a curl elongating curling gel before?
