Winter Hair Repair using the L.O.C MethodΒ 

By Jackie M. Hey y’all! It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Holidays are right around the corner, and with holidays comes bitter cold weather. So, my curls are in desperate need of some TLC. I decided to try the L.O.C. Method which stands for Leave-In/Oil/Cream in the order that it should be applied to your hair. Recently I tried using an Oyin Handmade product for the first time, and had pretty good results, so I took another trip to Sally Beauty to find an oil and cream to add to the leave-in. I’m slowly turning into a product junkie! Oh dear… seems like it anyways.  These were my products of choice for my winter hair repair regimen: 1. LEAVE-INOyin Handmade Juices & Berries Nourishing Herbal Leave-In Hair Tonic  2. OILSunny Isle Extra Dark Jamaican Black Castor Oil (JBCO) 3. CREAM Oyin Handmade Hair Dew Daily Hair Quenching Lotion  I also had to purchase a deep conditioning cap. This is a great brand below:  My Curl Health History: Before I applied my products, I was …

Product Review: Oyin Handmade Juices&Berries Nourishing Herbal Leave-In Hair TonicΒ 

By Jackie M.  Curly girls relate with me.  In search of a moisturizing product… in search of slip… in need of hydration, in need of holding power! Lol how many of us can relate?  It’s almost winter time, so that means more breakage, more dryness, more starvation amongst the type 4 curly heads across the world. Can we collectively feel each other’s pain today and all season, *moment of silence, crickets and such*…because this is when DIY natural hair care gets tough. I’m currently in a stage of dry hair, and decided to look for something new to hydrate my hair. Something that I personally haven’t tried before. So I went to Sally Beauty and picked up a highly raved about Oyin Handmade product.  This review is about my experience using Oyin Handmade Juices & Berries Nourishing Herbal Leave-In Hair Tonic!  I purchased this product last night for about $14 from my nearby Sally Beauty Supply. Before I went to pick this up, I read reviews on Amazon.com, and NaturallyCurly.com looking for words like, “smells …

Product Review: Curlformers Softhood Dryer Attachment Β 

By Jackie M.  Hello ladies! I have been doing the DIY natural thing for a minute now. Sorry for my absence from blogging, but life happens, and I’ve been crazy busy! Following my first Devacut experience and not having a regular stylist, I’ve just been figuring things out.  Well, just a few months ago I won a giveaway on the NaturallyCurly blog for the Curlformers Pro Glam Kit and Softhood Dryer attachment! I was so excited I actually won something because I’m forever signing up for free stuff. Lol so this felt like a big deal to me.  I tried out the Softhood dryer attachment twice and here is my review on the product: Let me just say I think the design of the Softhood makes a lot sense. It is large enough to fit around my head filled with Curlformers and rods, without being too tight or uncomfortable. The drawstring and chin strap are necessary to keep the Dryer from flying off your head. Once you turn your blow dryer on the cap fills up …

Product Review: LottaBody Wrap Me Foaming MousseΒ 

Hi ladies!  I recently purchased a new product on Amazon for less than $9, after reading and seeing pic tutorials of great results for perm Rod sets, roller sets, etc. I decided to try a simple flat twist set with perm rods on the ends only. Here are my thoughts on using LottaBody Wrap Me Foaming Mousse for the first time!  Everyone knows that I love wearing a curly twistout, and I also love to keep my curls moisturized as much as I can. Well, when searching for a better product to help give my curls a nice hold, pretty shine, and defining texture, I saw reviews on this foaming mousse. So I tried it myself and I can say I love it!  The LottaBody Wrap Me Foaming Mousse, is said to work on all hair types, and I know my hair typically responds well to mousse products when setting a rod set, so I tried it. I like the light coconut scent it has, and the foam has kind of a cobalt blue tint to it, …
