Hola peeps! Initially this post was going to be a product review then I thought well it really is an update about my hair. As you can see from the title that I got a hair cut! Brace yourself as it wasn’t drastic but I can definitely see and feel the difference in my hair. Keep scrolling to see and find out more about the cut/trim and the hair products that I am currently coveting!
I was chosen by Ouidad to be a model for their Carve & Slice technique. Basically they focus on the density (bulk) of your hair instead of the length. I was very clear that I didn’t want layers (I’m still trying to grow them out) nor did I want it short. I’ll admit I was nervous but I went through with it anyway. At first I thought meh but once I got home and played around with the shape it grew on me.
Once I felt comfortable with the cut I went into my product closet and pulled out Design Essentials Naturals Curl Enhancing Mousse and Twist and Set Setting Lotion. On freshly washed and detangled hair I applied the Twist and Set Setting Lotion first. I smoothed it on my hair then used a wide tooth comb to be sure that every strand was touched. Then I applied a few handfuls (about the size of a golf ball) of the Curl Enhancing Mousse to my tresses which blended well. I was pleasantly surprised as it didn’t feel sticky and there wasn’t a strong scent. Yay!
I was able to get 3rd day hair just with those two products and rewetting, however by the 4th day I wanted a change. So I glossed over my curls with Eco-Styler Olive Oil Gel (lightly) and pulled it up in a puff, which I rocked for another 2 days. These products combined with the cut has allowed me to lock it down for the rest of the summer; as I am ready for the rain, humidity and high heat. Happy curlz! Thoughts?
