HAIR CARE 101
As of now, if I don’t have a product mean’t for: tight curly, dry, thick, and colored hair then that thing won’t work. My biggest needs are moisture, curl hold, detangling, and color protecting. With that being said, I have found a few great companies thus far that cater to my needs: Shea Moisture and Giovanni. However, not everything is 100% perfect for my hair! That’s when I branch off into different waters, with some amazing products from different companies.
My hair care products are a literal blessing to me. Which is very hard to say by the way when you’re discussing products of any kind. There’s like a million different ones on the market! One thing I’ve learned when it comes to hair care, is that my texture has drastically changed over the years. I once upon a time had straight blonde hair as a child, which then turned into thick wavy sandy blonde hair, then into thick curly taupe/ashen blonde all naturally. It’s all genetic, but definitely gets tough when it’s time to decide what products I should use.
When it comes to shampoo + conditioner, Shea Moisture has it going on. I also adore their Curling Gel Soufflé as a pair with the Brighten & Restore Leave In Conditioner every time after a shower.
Shampoo and condition with Shea Moisture products/and Giovanni Soothing Hair Mask in shower. Slightly towel dry hair after shower. When i’m finished applying the conditioner and soufflé, I brush my hair out. Next, apply a small amount of the Unite Boing curling cream through the hair and squeeze all the hair to the scalp for extra “boing”. Finally, blow/diffuser dry hair, then apply some Eco Professional Styling gel into the hair for protected curls, and comb baby hairs with the Edge Gel. Set with some Giovanni hair spritz, or Chi Helmet Head hair spray and you’re done!
I did a Chris Appleton inspired wet hair look the other day! This was so much fun to do.

Below is a picture taken a month or so ago, with a fully diffused/after semi braids, style, and all the products above except Boing by Unite.
This hair mask below I will recommend to anyone and everyone. If you have any form of dry or frizzy hair, this is the one for you! Giovanni products are awesome and if you haven’t tried them yet you need to now.
That’s my hair care 101! Any other products I use will be mentioned in future articles, but these products I use on a daily/weekly basis.
