Eureka! No more frizz!

Hey Curly Girls!  I’m now 3 months curly, and in my last post I stated that I was still on a quest to find a product to help hold the frizz. I really would like to wear my hair twisted out for at least 3 to 5 days without it getting really frizzy and drying out. I did find a great way to keep the curl definition for a few days without wrapping it in a pineapple, thanks to Gabe Flowers video.

Well, I did some more research and found a product by Aveda called Aveda Brilliant Anti-Humectant Pomade. An anti-humectant is a moisture blocker, it is a hair product that repels moisture from your hair which prevents frizz due to excess moisture in the air. This satiny pomade is a light oil, similar to the consistency of bacon grease once it becomes a solid. It repels moisture from your hair, helping to prevent frizziness. It works excellent in humid weather, and even adds a little shine. I used a dime size portion on my twists before taking them out. Amazingly my twist out lasted all day with very little frizz. Even in my difficult area….no frizz!! Second day hair was awesome! My hair is still so soft. I think I’ll be able to wear my hair twisted out for at least 4-5 days.

Now remember, the goal is the keep the defined curls, that’s what I don’t want to get frizzy. Frizz near the scalp is good, it gives your twist out body, but I want to be able to keep those defined curls, otherwise why bother twisting.

The products that I’ve found so far are fitting into my regimen wonderfully! I’m feeling so much more confident about my journey.

One Month Natural Hair Anniversary

Wow, it’s been one month already. I can truly say that this journey has been fun!

Getting to know a major part of me has been an experience.

A few weeks ago I felt like my hair ruled me, now I’m beginning to feel like “I rule” and my hair is the clay, and I can mold and shape it the way I want with the help of many products out there. But you have to know and understand your hair texture and what its limits are. When you begin to become familiar with your hair and all it’s limitations and possibilities, there is so much you can do with it.

I like wearing my hair in twist outs the best. I like my curls to be defined on the outside, and for the root of my hair to frizz to give it volume. It’s not easy keeping the curls defined for more than a day or 2. They frizz along with the root. That’s where the million dollar hair product industry comes in!

So now that I know the look I want to achieve, I need to refine it. I haven’t tried, and spent too much money on products yet. I don’t want to become a “product junkie”, so I’ve been doing a lot of research, reading everything, and watching Youtube videos. The Natural Hair industry has grown tremendously in the last few years, and there are thousands of bloggers, vloggers, and websites with lots of information about going “natural”.

Here are a few of my favorite internet surfs, and stay tuned for a few product reviews!
