Hola! Last week Beautiful Textures Hair Care hosted celebs, models and entertainers to a fab dinner at the Mondrian Soho Hotel for the “Hair Icon” event. Sponsored by BET and Cadillac it was surely a grand event. It looks like all that attended had a great time!
“Strength of Nature’s Global Marketing Director, Charlene Dance hosted this incredible evening along with Michaela Angela Davis (Image Activist, BET Editorial Brand Manager). Both women expressed appreciation for those who continue to support the Beautiful Textures brand and all it has to offer for multi-cultural, multi-textured women who refuse to be defined by society’s standards of beauty. An emotionally engaging affair, attendees toasted to celebrating being no-longer monolithic and taking ownership in an event that was created just for them. Encompassing contemporary fusion faire and signature cocktail drinks, the night can only be described as the quintessential celebration of diversity during New York Fashion Week. Highlights of the night included Hair Icon partner, Cadillac, providing luxury vehicles that dropped attendees off at the steps of the Mondrian SoHo in style and attendees all walked away with signature Beautiful Textures Hair Care Swag Bags filled to the brim with the complete line.”

Hola! I was lucky enough to be gifted Beautiful Textures Curl Definer Styling Custard along with their Edges to Ends Silkener and Curl Definer Mousse. However today’s review will focus on the Styling Custard. Not to jump ahead but I must say that I LOVE this product! At first I was hesitant as I had read reviews where it didn’t work for some but it did for me. My curls were soft, fluffy and poppin! Enough of my babbling let’s get into the details:
As suggested I used this product on freshly washed and conditioned hair. The consistency was a bit sticky, similar to a gel but a little more fluid (if that makes sense). I proceeded to section my damp hair and applied the custard by smoothing it in. Usually I rake product through with my fingers but this time I wanted to try something different to see if it would calm my frizz. No need to be heavy-handed because a little goes a long way. Once all in I just left my hair alone and let it air dry. Finally I fluffed a bit and viola here are the results:
I may not be smiling but on the inside I am jumping with joy! Again I LOVE this product! My curls were shiny, elongated and soft. It just worked for me as I was able to get 2nd and 3rd day hair just by refreshing with water. I did have a little flaking on the 3rd day but that is because I had been manipulating my hair (playing in it) so it was to be expected. Overall I give this an 8 on a scale of 1-10!
All of Beautiful Textures products are priced under $7.00 and can be found at Wal-Mart, Sallys and local beauty supply stores. So run don’t walk…go buy it now!
*Disclaimer: Product was gifted to me by Beautiful Textures, yet I was not paid to review as it was based on my own opinion and experience.
Hola! Atlanta was the place to be a few weeks ago as thousands of natural hair enthusiasts attended the 2012 Taliah Waajid World Natural Hair Show.
