It delivers the shine, definition, and just enough hold that I've been searching for. But the reason this product wins over other curl creams is that it delivers a ton of moisture without leaving your hair sticky. Plus, the moisture and shine lasts all day.

I use this curl cream along with a small amount of gel around the hairline. I'm left with just right level of definition and movement for my Type-3C curls (Blacknaps.org Hair Typing overview). I've used other products but this one is very reliable.


Listen ladies, I fully acknowledge that not all naturally curly sisters can rock the wash-and-go but you can use this product for twists and other protective styles. I've been using…

My Natural Hair Journey

It's been about two years and I've finally completed the transition from relaxed (chemically straightened) to naturally curly hair and I'm loving it. After many years, I've revealed my natural texture, a thick mass of soft curls. I've said goodbye to the days of dry, over-processed hair.

It wasn't easy. Half the battle was figuring out what to do with my hair and the other was finding just the right products to pamper my curl type (between 3B and 3C). The battle is over.




The texture has taken some getting use to. My new look is fresh and youthful. I've been told that it makes me look 10 years younger. I feel like I've been through a makeover.

I've promised myself that I'll never put another relaxer within 10 feet of my head. The biggest lesson learned is that there was no need to chemically straighten my hair in the first place.

Looks pretty sleek, right? Just like a professional blowout. It may be easier to go to a hairstylist but blowouts can get very expensive if your're going every week. Save yourself some cash and learn how to do it yourself.

Voila! Renewed Kitchen Table and Chairs

Okay, so it's not new, I've had my set of kitchen table and chairs for years but I gave it the  most fabulous makeover. Every time I look at it, I'm filled with pride. Once again, I've proven to myself that I can make anything old look new, as long as it's structure is solid. It's not perfect, I'm not professional by any means but I love to refinish furniture.
