Product Review: Camille Rose Naturals Curlaide Moisture Butter

Product Review: Camille Rose Naturals Curlaide Moisture Butter

Camille Rose Naturals Curlaide Moisture Butter is my go-to twisting product when I have run out of or don't have time to make a fresh batch of my homemade flax seed gel. I found it thicker than the Camille Rose Almond Jai Twisting butter, but works just the same especially if you have thick kinky hair like mine.

Protecting Natural Hair while Swimming

Protecting Natural Hair while Swimming

Only one thing has changed in my routine before, during and after swimming in chlorinated water. Thanks to that article I found on Hair Liberty, I have been able to keep my hair in manageable condition, especially since chlorine characteristically makes my hair dry and breakable (shoutout to that 4a/4b fine dry hair!).

Senegalese Twists / Rope Braids Maintenance

Senegalese Twists /  Rope Braids Maintenance

It was a fun and new ride (first time with a middle part) but I was really looking forward to renovating my take-down routine post-crochet braids. Previously post crochet braids, my hair was extra dry and breaking everywhere.

Why is my hair so unmanageable post-protective style?

Why is my hair so unmanageable post-protective style?

I took out my crochet braids last night, combed it out with some Coconut Oil, washed it, put some henna on it, then deep conditioned it over night with some Jessicurl Deep Conditioning Treatment. I thought I did everything right in preparation for conditioning and lubricating my hair well for my salon appointment the next day (which included a protein treatment!) - but I just felt bad for the hair stylist breaking a sweat over trying to tackle the tangly little areas all over my head and trying to give it a good press (I honestly think I over-tip them for their troubles because of this). My biggest question is, why does this happen after every protective style?! From Box Braidsto my last crochet braids style my hair afterwards was just treacherous!
