destination: definition - Beautiful Textures

A continuation of my last blog ....

Beautiful Textures is a new natural line.. it kinda reminds me of that Profectiv brand... you know what I'm talking about. Anyway, this brand is geared toward "mixed textures": curly, wavy, kinky-coily, and frizzy.

Anyway, I got the Moisture Butter Whipped Curl Creme. It has an extremely strong fruity smell.. kinda like a smoothie. Its got a thick consistency which is really what I was looking for as the final piece to my product group.

TIP: i suggest having three basic products - a water based, an oil based, and a creme/butter based to seal.. that's not something I read or saw on youtube, that's just my own intuition. Basic logic.

Anyway, it worked great for Micah's hair (for those with mixed, fine -haired kids). It super defined his curly fro. I basically used it to replace the soft and precious cause I didn't feel like getting more. First I spritz on the aussie, then add a layer of my castor many oil mix, then topped with the moisture butter. His hair wasn't super soft like with soft and precious, but meh, it'll do if I dont have to get two different products lol.

My hair, meh. I can't tell right now cause I used the Wave Nouveau too, but I think it'll be a good product.. I was looking for a buttery, creamy sealing product.  As my hair dries, it is starting to feel softer. I'm a little itchy though. Not sure what that's from.

TIP: use one product at a time so that,for instance, if your head gets itchy, you can tell which products you have adverse reactions to lol.

I really don't like that it has such a long ingredients list, but for now I'll keep using it until I find something more "natural". Its got some good stuff in it like olive oil, aloe, coconut oil, mango and Shea butter, argan oil... I don't know what behentrimonium methosulfate is, but considering how everyone talks down about sulfates, its probably not very good lol. With all the good stuff in it though, could be worth ignoring until I get something else.

Also, I want to quickly mention, I have no clue what my curl type is if that's something you base your decision on. Its long and coily on top, but super springy on bottom and sides. So, yea. If you have medium- thick tightly curled or coiled low porous hair like me, then you can try the stuff I'm talking about lol

Just got two new products at sallys in my quest for less frizzy hair. The first being Soft Sheen and Carson Wave Nouveau moisturizing finishing lotion - its made to be used with their texturizer but it does say excellent for natural hair... I don't think I'm going to keep this product.. although it does say provides long lasting softness and shine and quenches dry, thirsty hair, its not what I'm looking for in a moisturizer. Even on Micah's fine curly hair it seems to make it crunchy. My hair feels kinda hard right now.

I attempted the brush coil method, which is where you use a brush to define curls on short hair. Basically, while your hair is wet take a soft bristle brush or medium, I don't know, I used my sons old baby brush.. anywho, take the brush and make circular motions thru you wet hair and it should coil right up. I think I need more practice. I'll show pics in a later post cause this phone app will only let me post one per post, so, on to the next product
