CurlFormers Review

I decided to do a set of curlformers. What a Task!!!! It took me 3.5 hours from wash to set. I used over 50 curlformers and I still came up short. I improvised by making a few of the curls have more hair. Your supposed to keep it small so you can get closer to the root. Sleeping was another issue. I decided to let them air dry because I despise sitting under the dryer. This meant I had to sleep in them. Never again!!! Next time I’ll do them in the morning and let them sit all day or I will just sit under the stupid dryer.

Anyway, I am not quite sure there will be a next time. I did the set because others have said that it stretched their hair out and caused less knots. My results were OK, but they look pretty similar to my normal twist out done on medium size twists and stretched with bands (actually I think I like the twist out better). This takes me all of 1 hour from wash to set and is much easier to sleep on.

I will give it a few days though. The one thing I do like that is different from the twists out is that my hair is pretty straight. If this falls and gives me a way to do mini twists or straighten with my flat iron without having to blow-dry my hair, then I will call it a success. Se below for the pics!

The Wonders of Shea Butter

My Concoction

A friend of mine introduced me to the wonders of Raw Shea Butter. I have found that this is my best hair product to date. Since using, my hair is never dry and it looks fantastic. She gave me a slab of Shea Butter that she had stored in a box in her house. I took the slab and placed it in a blender with some Vitamin E Oil, Jojoba Oil, Coconut Oil, and a little of my Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Hold Smoothie . It blended into a nice, smooth hair product that I scooped out and put in an empty container.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this product and it is much cheaper than many of the ready made hair products I buy. I take a small amount and add it to my hair, focusing on my ends, each night. I plan on buying a 5 lb box of this stuff before I run out of my current stash.

It works great on my daughter’s hair as well. I have been placing her hair all summer in two low braids (very easy style). This product makes it much easier to brush and detangle the hair and get it to a point where I can grab and braid in two pieces. She has a ton of hair that is not easy to get into two of anything!
