Product Review: Design Essentials Leave in Conditioner

I have found another product that is a MUST HAVE for 4C naturals!  I decided to spend the few extra bucks on DE leave in conditioner because I have extremely dry hair and the summer heat wasn’t treating my tresses well at ALL!!

I paid $10.79 for the product a my local beauty supply store.


My take:  The leave in is very lightweight and comes out in a light mist.  I used the product when I have my had in chunky twists as a protective style.  I sprayed it throughout my scalp in the morning and before going to bed and it did not leave any residue or build up.  It made my natural hair very soft and smells good.  When i removed my extensions my hair wasn’t tangled and was still nice and soft.  Will purchase again!!!

Successful Bantu Knot Out!!!

Ok so my first post on my bantu knot out did not turn out good at all.  This is take 2 on the style and I did things a bit differently.

IMG-20131019-00432 (1)To achieve this style I shampooed and deep conditioned my hair (as seen in my last post) than I twisted my hair while it was still damp.  I used Jamaican Black Castor Oil to moisturize and used Beautiful Textures Curling Pudding on EVERY section.  I applied a very generous amount of product and combed out each section with a small toothed comb before twisting.  I let my bantu knots air dry over night and in the morning “VUALAH”!!!! I rubbed my hands in pure coconut oil and  untwisted each knot.  I used a tiny bit of edge control for my edges. I am so happy that my bantu knots came out flawlessly.

 

-Until Next Time =)
