Amazing Curls

I just want to start by apologizing for disappearing for a while...but I'm back!  I get a little discouraged with the whole curly hair thing and I start to straighten it but I want you all to know that I am still taking care of the curls!  As of January 17, 2011 I am officially curly girl for a year now....super proud of that!  

I was going through curly hair photos and ran across an actress by the name of Sophina Brown...I am absolutely in LOVE with her hair!  She has my hair type and curl pattern but her hair is so much thicker.
LOVE IT!!!!!!

So Target has the new section for just us curly girls!  Have any of you seen it yet !  I was there the other day after the store was remodeled and found this!!!

I was really excited to see Kinky Curly Products!  Because living in LA I have to drive all the way to Wilshire Beauty just to get my KCCC.  

Target is one of my favorite places to shop and this just made me love TARGET even more than before.

Got Yogurt?

Did you know yogurt is very good for your hair and skin? For those of you of you who can not eat yogurt for whatever reason don’t go away just yet, you can also receive the benefits without consuming it!

BENEFITS OF YOGURT FOR HAIR!


• Great conditioner
• Cleanser
• Promotes Hair Growth
• Prevents Frizz
• Cures Itchy Scalp
• Cures Dandruff


BENEFITS OF YOGURT FOR SKIN!

• Diminishes pores
• Improves skin texture
• Exfoliates
• Can treat acne and scars if used regularly
• Reduces dark circles

• Removes whiteheads
• Gives skin a Healthy Glow

There are so many different benefits to using and consuming yogurt, and if I were to tell you all of them I would be here all day.   If you guys read my previous blog YUMMY CAKE BATTER DEEP CONDITIONER you saw that was a yogurt based deep conditioner that works wonders...if you have not tried it be sure to test it out and let me know what you think.   

* Tip-Yogurt can be applied to the face daily to improve the overall appearance of the skin!  Depending on your personal needs you can add different ingredients to get different benefits!  If you guys would like some face mask recipes or tips feel free to send a message or email me!

I call it my Yummy Cake Batter Conditioner (Homemade)

After leaving the beach this past Thursday I notice my curls seem a little dry!  So I decided to make a homemade deep conditioner to kick some life back into my dry, frizzy, wind blown , sun cooked curls lol! 

I started gathering items from the kitchen and blending them together in a bowl...to my surprise the aroma was AMAZING!  My sister walked in and wanted to eat it....even i was tempted to taste it but i didn't lol!

I decided to call it "Yummy Cake Batter" Deep Conditioner (YCB Deep Conditioner for short lol)!  The result of this conditioner was way beyond anything I would have even imagined.  Ever since going Curly Girl in January this year I have been having my little issues with frizz here and there...well this YCB Deep Conditioner just shockingly put an end to my frizz in 1 hour!!!!

I loved my hair so much the day after trying this recipe that I couldn't wait to share this with you guys!!!





Items you need:  Whole Yogurt Vanilla, 1 egg, Honey, Almond oil (or you can substitue that with Olive oil), and  Plastic cap to cover hair.

YUMMY CAKE BATTER DEEP CONDITIONER RECIPE

3 tbsp of Whole Yogurt (vanilla)
1 Egg Yolk (pout out the whites only use the yellow)
1 tbsp of Honey
2 tbsp Almond Oil

Pour all ingredients into a bowl and stir it all together until smooth. 


Step 1: Co Wash hair first or Rinse thoroughly with warm water to rid of as much dirt as you can (no shampoo used during this step please)

Step 2: Get rid of excess water by ringing hair out or dabbing on a towel.

Step 3: start apply the Yummy Cake Batter Conditioner through out the hair, start doing this in sections to ensure every area of hair is covered.

Step 4: once every section of hair is covered use whatever is left of the conditioner and saturate the ends of your hair

Step 5: Place a plastic cap on head to keep in moisture and leave cap on for 1 hour ( you can go watch TV or cook dinner or read a book etc...)

Step 6: Rinse conditioner out with COOL WATER (do not use hot or warm because it could cook the egg into your hair)

Step 7: After you have rinsed all the conditioner out wash your hair with your normal shampoo...oh and feel free to use your hot water now lol ( I use Avalon organics peppermint shampoo with no sulfates)

Step 7: Condition as usual with your normal conditioner

Step 8: Style as usual ( I used my Kinky Curly Curling Custard)


 After using this deep conditioner you will notice the hair is very moisturized and silky.  I had absolutely no frizz the next day and curls were a bit more relaxed and hydrated!

I hope you like it...please leave comments and results if you try this!  I would love to get some feedback whether good or bad :) thanks guys!

Curly Kids

Kids with curly hair are the cutest!!!  Parents if you have kids with curly hair please don't ruin it!  If you are not sure how to handle their hair find someone that can! 

I really wish that my mom knew what to do with my hair back in the days because I feel that if she did know how to take care of it I would have never ended up relaxing my hair.  Granted my mom didn't let me get my first relaxer until I was in high school (which i had to beg for), she still didn't know how to manage my curls.  Most mixed kids or parents that have a different hair texture than their kids are somewhat lost when it comes to having to deal with a different hair type.  My mom had 3 girls and all 3 of us have different hair textures so now that I know more about hair I really feel sorry for my mom...she had no clue. 

Most parents back in the day would just relax or straighten their kids hair so they wouldn't have to deal with it, luckily my mom didn't relax my hair...she just put it in a ponytail everyday lol.  I remember asking her to let me wear it down and instead of her washing it and leaving it curly she blew it dry, it started out all nice and straight that morning and as soon as the humidity hit it BAM...it was a chaka khan frizzy mess!  lol

I am going to start a section on curly kids where I will do interviews so that parents with curly kids can see what other parents are doing.  My goal is to start a network of curly people that you all can meet and discuss any concerns or questions you have!
