Happy Wednesday Loves!

In this tutorial, I'm going to show you how I achieved a fierce bantu knot out on my friend Tiana's transitioning 4B hair with the CURLS whipped styling cream. 

PRODUCTS USED

  • Herbalife Strengthening Shampoo. Repairs damage by leaving the hair 10x stronger and reduces breakage by 90% in the 1st use! It contains plant-derived micro-proteins (which strengthen hair) and coconut-derived cleansers that create a reach lather. A plus (my naturalistas) is that this shampoo is color-preserving, sulfate AND paraben free!
  • Herbalife Strengthening Conditioner. This microprotein infused conditioner strengthens hair strands for a softer and silkier feel after one use. Just like the shampoo, it contains hydrolyzed wheat protein (helps to strengthen and aids in repairing the hair), jojoba seed extract (known to be chemically similar to the oils in human skin, it helps improve elasticity and moisturizes) and yucca extract (thickens hair while adding volume).
  • JessiCurl Deep Conditioning Treatment. This thick deep conditioner contains ingredients like moisturizing coca and shea butters deliver intense moisture for your hair especially when used with heat.
  • CURLS Cashmere Curl Leave in Conditioner. This leave in is formulated with cashmere extract (derived from proteins found in goat hair that condition and soften the hair), certified organic aloe leaf (plant derived and contains about 75 nutrients known to promote hair growth, soothes scalp and adds strength to name a few) and coconut milk (extracted from coconuts- it nourishes, de-tangles and conditions the hair) to strengthen, repair and moisturize hair. It also bonds to the hair shaft to strengthen 3 layers of the hair to enhance your curl pattern.

 

  • CURLS Whipped Cream. A thick rich cream that contains ingredients like sunflower oil (light oil high in vitamins A, B, D and E), shea butter, aloe leaf juice and Tahitian coconut oil & gardenia essential oil (re-hydrates, restores shine and bounce) to provide curl definition, frizz protection, moisture and sheen.
  • Pantene Pro-V Truly Natural Shine Serum + Argan Oil. The key ingredient in this product- argan oil, extracted from the Moroccan Argan tree, this oil is rich in fatty acids and Vitamin E to provide intense moisture and long lasting shine.

Valentine's Day Hair: Sexy Heatless Waves

heatlesswaves

In this tutorial, I'm going to show you how I achieve Sexy Heatless Waves with my Arjuni Wavy A hair using Hello Curlies, CURLS and Biosilk hair products.


FEATURED PRODUCTS

  • Hello "Tight" Curly Soft Defining Gel is a lightweight hold gel that is perfect for my loose, tight and wavy curlies as well as my straight and sleek chicas who are looking to achieve a textured style without the use of heat. This product contains Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein (hydrolyzed meaning broken down into smaller units and can easily be absorbed in the hair shaft) and helps to strengthen and aids in repairing the hair. I love how the 1st ingredient in this product is water which lets me know that the product contains more of this and will help the hair retain moisture.
  • CURLS "Passionfruit" Control Paste gets my edges LAID! Since I always leave my edges out when I wear a sew in, I like to make sure that I use a product that can smooth them down as well as add sheen and moisture. I love this product because it contains certified organic ingredients like Evening Primrose (contains Omega 6 fatty acids to help with hair loss), Mango Butter (contains natural emollients to help maintain moisture and promote cell regeneration) and Shea Butter (contains fatty acids which help to seal in moisture and soften).
  • BioSilk Silk Therapy is a weighless leave in silk replenishing and reconstructing treatment that helps repair, smooth, prevent frizz and protect the hair leaving you with incredible shine. This product is created with Hydrolyzed Silk Protein, for strength and shine and 17 of 19 amino acids to aid in reconstructing and revitalizing hair.

 

This style took about 25 minutes and I slept overnight in a satin bonnet. I maintain this style by 2 stand twisting and using flexi rods at night.
