Cleansed, conditioned & now on to a deep treatment.
I’ll update y’all on the products used later. Not a single curl seems to have been compromised so far! My hair reverted back 100% with just water!

It’s 100% for certain that @slayedbyt_ is an expert at what she does. Many stylist show us curly to straight, but never show us if the curls have reverted to full health. Here’s what your hair should look like after a PROPERLY EXECUTED silk press.

Why so soon? My hair is very fine and gets weighed down and stringy with its own natural oils very fast when straightened. No flexi rod could restore its volume because it would just look like greasy, stringy Curls instead of the big beautiful volume i love. I didn’t get a silk press for style — i got it because i wanted a professional, precise, trim.

(Sorry had to repost, bad angles) The evolution of my stash between last year May/June, to now. Back then most of my stash came for free at events i would attend and giveaways i would enter (i have a post on my blog about this — but that explains the shea moisture, cantu, creme of nature, stuff that just sat on my shelf till i gave it away). This also shows my growth as a naturalistas expert — i pay less attention to expensive marketing tactics and affordability, and more attention towards QUALITY of the products. My mission as a blogger is to work with brands and make them more accessible for you to try before making the full commitment (hence the Crown kit and Pop Up box). Today my stash is 100% black owned & it features over 50 brands.

Due to popular demand, i just went ahead and compiled my favorite moisturizers. I was specific about my hair texture and type because my preference is lightweight consistencies for moisturizers that won’t weigh down my curls. However, i did include some thicker moisturizers for kinkier, denser, thicker kinks. I’ll put an asterisks (**) next to those.
1. @classyhairproducts classy Babassu chick moisturizing cream. It is Aloe Vera based & can be used to moisturize blown out hair without reverting the Curls. It can also be used as a Twisting cream. **
2. @kriyabotanicals royal fruits leave in conditioner is a thicker consistency but not so thick to weigh down my hair. I think would work well on 4C hair (this product is labeled for high porosity hair but i have both porosities on my head actually and it works well) **
3. @adwoabeauty baomint leave in conditioning styler — a type 4 curlies dream. Thick consistency but melts in your hair. Keeps you going for days — could be used on its own.
4. @elainehairbody low porosity leave in has a thin, creamy consistency — perfect for finer textures like mine. Their hair moisturizer ** is thicker but still light enough for looser curls and effective for the kinkiest. Can be sealed with their hair butter but if you find it too heavy, seal with a lightweight oil.
5. @shescentit coco creme leave in conditioner — another light weight, creamy leave in. Can be used underneath a lightweight butter or oil.
6. @shunsleekbeauty leave ins. I love all three of their leave ins and already emptied one. They work well as refreshers & as sole moisturizers (they also go well with pretty much any gel on the planet and go perfect for wash and go’s if you’re into that)
7. @monie_skin_care leave ins (she has two scents), this is also a lightweight, milky consistency. It works perfect to style & refresh. I’d use a light weight oil or butter to seal.
8. @annabelles_perfectblend daily moisturizers are very close in consistency with #5 — they’re perfect for moisturizing for the week (seal with their butter which is really lightweight and melts in the hair) and helps to detangling
9. @annabelles_perfectblend leave in serum is BAE

Story time: my hair is the reason i struggled with my identity as a black woman for a long time. When i went to an all black school, my hair was fetishized & i was often told that my hair was “mad Spanish” and too soft for a black girl. Then when i went to a predominantly Hispanic school, i was too black to be Spanish (I’m half Puerto Rican — i was born and raised with my Puerto Rican side). Today — i identify as a proud Afro-Latina (aka: BLACK woman). Our hair comes in all textures, thin- thick- curly-coily-kinky-whatever! (Styled by @slayedbyt_ , by the way — she’s officially my forever stylist. I’m just that in awe at her service & quality! )

The Pop Up box Peach Hibiscus edition 😍 This Box is sold out but we MIGHT have extras — however, the Pop Up Box KaLahari melon mint edition goes on sale 01/26. It will feature a WHIPPED SHAMPOO instead of a cowash. 6 full sized products for just 39.99 (over 60% off). You CANT beat it.

Many people say they have dry hair and unmanageable hair but it’s THEY who are the barriers between themselves and healthy hair. Moisturize THEN seal.
-

Softness does not equal moisture by the way. Sometimes what you THINK is working (because it improves manageability) is not actually fostering health and growth.
-
-
HOW TO MOISTURIZE: USE A LEAVE IN, HAIR MILK, OR REFRESHER on the hair. SEAL IN moisture with butter or oil. Moisture should last 2-3 days.

Sorry I’m really bad at letting other people take my pic — but here’s me today. I’m absolutely loving my hair, it feels like silk. I think this’ll last me about 2 weeks or whenever i get the pop up box 2 in the mail by @annabelles_perfectblend 😉

3 years later. I’ve done two major cuts since my big chop after screwing up my own trim (major cut is 1.5-2inches off for me) so my hair probably would’ve been a lot longer if not for that. I’ve mastered the art of trimming my own hair and surprisingly, i only needed less than 1/4 inch off by a licensed professional to even everything out (that’s impressive — and mind you, I’ve never trimmed on straight hair). I’d also like to note that not everyone’s hair grows lightning fast (including mine), some might have been waist length by now but I’m in my own lane! This journey has been so rewarding and I’m hoping to retain more length over the next 3 years while i incorporate more protective styles into my regimen and hair vitamins. 🙂 [[ you’re free to ask me questions below! I won’t answer the same question twice however so read above — style by @slayedbyt_ )

Pet peeves

2. Plaque Build up -

This is probably really late but one of my packages came from Trinidad & the first package got lost so i had to wait 3 weeks for another package 😭 anyways! Here it is! -
1. Pretty much everything @elainehairbody - this brand caters to low and high porosity hair with lines that are exclusive to porosity. Their products are simply made and super moisturizing! The hair gel and hair butter are relatively new. I have both lines because my hair is actually both porosities depending on the area of my head. -
-
2. @carmellamarie30 deep conditioner with honey Hibiscus. This is my third bottle of this DC & i absolutely love its unique texture and moisturizing properties. I took so long to purchase again because the 8oz bottle just wasn’t enough and i didn’t feel like i got enough uses out of it. However, Carmella sold a 16oz bottle on Black Friday and i jumped on it! Definitely a fave! -
-
3. @monie_skin_care sells all kinds of great products(soaps as well!) but their hair products are bomb af. The leave in conditioner is BAE. She sent me one for review and within 2 weeks i was already half way through the bottle. I quickly bought 4 more and gifted one to a curl friend. -
-
-
4. @shescentit haul is CRAZY! I wish i was able to get more. This line is amazing! Super duper moisturizing & the new pomegranate Twisting butter is BAE. I reviewed some of their products a while back and i immediately felt as though i needed the whole website lol. -
-
5. @wholesomeyounhsc is based in Trinidad! I’ve been watching their IG for over a year but couldn’t bite the bullet for the shipping cost until their 50% off Black Friday sale. The products were worth the wait and the hassle & i pray that she does transition to the states so she can be more accessible for American Curls (sorry trini Curls — I’m a little selfish) -
-
-
Last but not least @annabelles_perfectblend pre Black Friday sale had me like 😧😧😧😧😧! I went hard and bought almost every DC & then i bought whatever else i didn’t have on their new years sale. I TRULY do support this brand even tho we Collab for boxes!

I couldn’t pick one ❤️ @annabelles_perfectblend Peach Hibiscus Pop Up Box for the win.

The People's daughter (@queenelizabette___)

When you refresh your hair with the Pop Up Box daily moisturizer 🙂 there’s three layers of products on my hair technically (the leave in, butter & moisturizer) and i have NO build up, my hair is still light, fluffy, soft, and ready to slay !
