My Signature.

Happy New Years!! Ok, I’m late but it’s the first post of the year and I felt it was fitting.

So I’d like to discuss the only signature I have, my hairstyle. These big beautiful curls were created just over a year ago. From the moment I presented them to the world everyone, including myself, loved them. They were fun and cute, they fit my style and most importantly, they protected my hair from excessive heat damage. So let me explain how I create them.

Now of course I gave to start with freshly washed, clean hair. I’ll let you know now before we move forward, I am a Carol’s Daughter nut! I’ve loved just about every product I purchased from them and it’s mostly because of the help they have provided with my unnecessarily long transitioning journey…

To wash my hair I choose to use their Monoi Shampoo and Conditioner. I then follow up with a deep conditioner by using the Monoi Hair Repairing Mask. After rinsing out the mask I follow up with the Black Vanilla Moisturizing Leave-in Conditioner for detangling, the Monoi Repairing Anti-Breakage Spray for protection and I also use the Synergi Thermal Mouse for volume from the local natural salon, Synergi Salon. I then comb through to detangle, let air dry until damp then I divide my hair into four sections and prepare for work.

To actually curl the hair, I use Hot Tools Professional Long Spongy Rod Rollers from Ulta and some Hair Balm from Carol’s Daughter for some soft control.

I go through each section to firmly twist and wrap smaller sections around the rods.

Here’s my end result.

And of course my satin cap.

In the morning I unravel each coil and end up with this.

I then use two pumps of Monoi Oil Sacred Strengthening Serum which is also from Carol’s Daughter to fluff out the curls. See, I told you I love their products.

Throughout the day my hair will begin to expand to a larger size but I love the full look.

Then at night I’ll comb through the curls again for added fullness.

So there it is, my signature which can last up to three to four days. I really do love this style for me and I think I’ll look for new variations to play with. When I figure it all out, I’ll let you all know. Until next time, deuces!!
