Kinky Curly Coily Queen โ‡” Parris

Hey Queens! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

It has been what? Two months or more? I am trying my best to keep up. Between school and my part-time job all I want to do is sleep, sleep and more sleep. Happy New Year guys! ๐ŸŽ†๐ŸŽ‡โœจ๐ŸŽŠ I hope the new year started out well for you all. In my last post, I didn’t great y’all well. ๐Ÿ˜˜ What have I been up to? Well, I have been trying to be a good nursing student, as well as, trying to ensure my monetary needs are met. When I am not doing that, I am formulating a business plan I want to initiate soon. I’ve been good and my mind has been on the blog heavily because it gives me peace and I enjoy doing it. Not to deter from the reason I am actually here but to bring to you a beautiful young lady that followed me on Instagram a few months back. Throughout those months I have liked her transition process. At the end of her transition process, I loved how full and bouncy her hair was. Therefore, I DMed her on Instagram and asked if she’d like to be featured on my blog. I think even though I may not have the time to document my natural hair’s progress I can at least bring inspiration from other natural haired girls. My ladies and gents (if you’re reading), meet Parris (such a beautiful name ๐Ÿ˜Š).

Product Review | Aunt Jackie’sโ„ข Curls & Coils Don’t Shrink Flaxseed Elongating Curling Gel

Hey Queens! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

If you know me then you know I love a great gel. I’ve been an eco styler girl since the discovering of this gel but then I heard of the great flaxseed gel. I never thought I’d find Aunt Jackie’s Curls & Coils flaxseed gel here in Jamaica but you know your girl just had to get herself one of these to try.

This product is sulfate and paraben-free. It contains no mineral oil or petrolatum.

It is great for natural curls, coils and waves.

It is enriched with flaxseed and wheat protein. Flaxseed, rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, promotes hair health from the inside out, and helps to prevent dryness & flaking. Aunt Jackie’s special Flaxseed recipe adds nourishment to hair, while giving bounce and stretch to withering curls, twists, and coils.

First Time Installing Box Braids

Hey Queens! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

So I installed box braids for the first time. This was my first time doing a protective style that includes covering my entire hair. I must say it was a long process – I hate it. I hate to sit and have someone in my hair for too long. It made me look more mature – I now looked like a 21 year old than a 16 year old.

I did this because I recently cut the damaged ends off, therefore I was unable to do my mini twists without them loosing out due to the fact that my ends were blunt.

Product Review | ORSโ„ข Shealiciousโ„ข Moisture Lock

Hey Queens! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

I’m here with another product review – another deep conditioner. I’ve been wanting to try this product since it was launched by ORS. You guys might be aware of the three new conditioning cocktails they offer. They include the Shealicious Moisture Lock, Shealicious Scalp Relief and Shealicious Shine Booster. Each cocktail comes with the aforementioned naturalย oils ย on the side that you mix with a shea butter conditioner on the other side. The Shealicious Moisture Lock uses tamanu and black current oils, the Shealicious Scalp Relief uses avocado and rosemary oils and the Shealicious Shine Booster uses alma and argan oils. I bought the Shealicious Moisture Lock.

I was fascinated by this because it has a very cute packaging that gives you the feel of making your own little cocktail. I’m a DIY girl, so just imagine own excited I was about making this.

Twist N’ Curl ft. Shea Moisture

Hey Queens! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

I know you guys are used to me doing the Twist n’ Curl method (here and here) where I twist the hair then roll 3-5 twists onto a perm rod but this time I did the other method. I realize that the initial method I usually use takes a longer time to dry.

Twist n' Curl ft. Shea Moisture

In addition to that, I used the wonderful Shea Moisture Coconut and Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie and Curling Gel Soufflรจ to achieve this style.

Product Review | SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus

Hey Queens! ๐Ÿ‘‹

I’m back with another review. Now this is a brandย that has been on my wish list ever since I discovered it. I was always drawn to the Coconut & Hibiscus line because I have extremely frizzy hair. I was so excited when I entered PassionMeThisย SheaMoisture giveaway. Not to mention, I prayed to God that I won this giveaway and He came through just right. *Thank you God* ๐Ÿ™‡๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ So you know it’s your girl’s first time trying out these products and I was hella excited. I’m sorry, I just can’t contain my excitement.

Finger Coils

Hey Queens! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

I’ve had many failed attempts at finger coiling my hair, for what reason? I don’t know. But I must say I’ve done 90% of my hair in finger coils and they came out perfectly. The front of my hair just doesn’t seem to keep the coils and I will not fight it anymore but keep what it gives me.

Which is more important – Hair typing? Porosity? or Density?

Hey Queens! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

Wonder what’s more important when taking care of that beautiful head of hair? Initially, we read about hair typing and thought this was important but then density and porosity came along and now we are confused as to what matters the most.

Importance

… but to understand which is more important it’s fitting that you know what they are.
