Curly Girl Handbook & Deva Curls Products

I read Curly Girl Handbook a while back and had implemented some of their curly hair styling tips and tricks and have had great success with them.  I recommend this book to anyone with curly hair who wants to go natural.  So after reading Curly Girl, I recently tried Deva Curls products Deva Care No-Poo and Deva Care One Condition.  I love these products.  I have no complaints.  They clean my hair wonderfully and the conditioner works great!  This is a great everyday hair care product (by everyday I do not mean literally everyday). I would recommend this product to anyone with curly hair.  They are definitly on my hit list currently of products to try.  I am now going to try some of there styling products.  I will give you the low down on what I think.

Blended Beauty

Products in the Blended Beauty line that I have tried are

  • Quenching Conditioner
  • Cleansing Conditioner
  • Soy Cream Shampoo
  • Kick for Curls
  • Curly Frizz Pudding
  • Styling Lotion

These products smell great!!!

Quenching Conditioner was awesome.  My hair felt very moisturized after this conditioner.

Cleansing Conditioner did just that! It cleansed and conditioned.  I liked that you can use this product for those in between days when you want to cleanse but not to shampoo.

I did not like the Soy Cream Shampoo.  It did not feel like I was getting a good clean.

Kick for curls nozzle sprayed weird.  I did not enjoy this products packaging and I didn’t feel it worked well in general.

Curly Frizz Pudding and the Styling Lotion offered no frizz control and I didn’t like the stickiness of the product.

All of these products nourished the scalp and hair while smoothing and defining each curl, the only problem was these products offer no frizz control at all.  So by the end of the morning my hair was soft frizzy and flying everywhere.

I enjoyed this line.  It made my hair smell nice but the lack of frizz control makes this a no go for me.  I might invest in the conditioners again but first I will have to see where my journey takes me!

If you would like to try blended beauty products for yourself.  I would recommend the conditioners. Please see their website at the link below.  And just because the shampoo and styling products weren’t my cup of tea doesn’t mean you won’t find they work wonderful in your hair.

Posted in About Me

Hello World!

I started this blog to follow my journey into the world of natural beauty care.  I have been using natural products when I can for years but now I am making a commitment to use them exclusively.

I am starting my journey with a search for perfect curls.  I have tried many products out there but I want to find an all natural product line or mixture of product lines that make my hair the best it can be.

Now this may sound simple but being biracial it is easier said than done.

I have unique hair as many mixed chicks do.  I have different types and textures on my head so finding a product that brings out the beauty in all of these differences is a challenge.  I have THIN hair and it is kinky/curly so alot of products on the market are TOO heavy but the ones for thinner less kinky curls don’t have enough hold and this leads to FRIZZ.

The reason I am going natural is the beauty industry uses so many chemicals that are just plain not good for us

Main things I am avoiding in my beauty care products are

  • Suflates (sodium or ammonium lauryl/laureth/myreth sulfate)
  • Parabens (methyl, propyl, ethyl, butyl)
  • Petrochemicals/Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAH)
  • Phthalates

And YES for years I straightened my hair chemically and with flat irons.  I am tired of the damage and want to celebrate the beauty that is curly hair!

I am hoping through my blogging to share my natural beauty tips , with a thing or two about me (like I’m an ovo nightshade free vegetarian) and my life thrown in there too and I am eager to learn a thing or two from everyone out there who struggles with the same issues as me, striving to be a natural beauty!
