My daughter Blake pretty much inherited my hair. Now, I truly empathize with my mother who had to rely on a jar of Dax and/or pressing comb to help tame my gigantic hair.
Every Saturday morning feels like a science experiment. I am constantly trying new products in hopes that it will make her hair more manageable and the process less stressful. She screams, she cries and even throws up sometimes. These panic attacks might also be hereditary because I was the same as a child.
Needless to say, I hopped, skipped and jumped at the opportunity to try Curlkit! Curlkit is an easy way to try out new products and find what’s best for your hair. Each month the box is delivered to your door with full size and sample size products. The subscription fee is $20 per month and not bad considering the cost of natural/organic hair products. The box came filled with goodies including a full size shampoo, curl hydration spray, styling custard and 8 trial size treatments, conditioners etc.
Because she has so much hair that comes with so much drama, I typically do double strand twists that last all week or an overnight twist out for more defined curls. Either way, it takes about 3 to 4 hours and not the best options if I’m pressed for time or simply exhausted.
So I decided to put Curlkit to the ultimate test and the results were amazing. I was able to achieve that cute curly fro (pic above) in under 2 hours with enough time to get everyone ready and out the door for an afternoon event. I absolutely love Curlkit and now that I’ve discovered all these great products, I’m thinking about going natural!
Here’s what I used to get the look:
STEP 1: Wash with Hante Textures Sulphate-Free Shampoo with Tea Tree and Peppermint Oil
STEP 2: Follow shampoo with Hask Argan Oil Deep Conditioning Treatment
STEP 3: Apply Alikay Naturals Leave In Conditioner to Wet Hair
STEP 4: Part hair into large sections and apply Curly Hair Solutions Curl Keeper. Let it air dry and then separate and style with fingers. (Blake’s hair soaks up water like a sponge so depending on your hair texture, you might need to dry with low heat)
