Hair

Styling with Hawaiian Silky

I don't know how you ladies have chosen to style your hair during the "Take Back Your Hair" Challenge, but I've been keeping it very simple. Basically, I've been rockin' my natural curls in a low hanging ponytail:


Sometimes I wear it down as pictured below, but I hate the way my curls make my face look fuller, so I prefer the ponytail:


Basically, I rinse my hair in the shower every morning. Getting my hair soaking wet is key to taming my curls. Once out of the shower, I blot my hair dry with a towel, then saturate it with Hawaiian Silky's 4-in-1 Miracle Worker and scrunch the curls into place. I then take a few paper towels and blot my hair some more to squeeze out excess water and product. I add more product to dry areas as needed. Then last but not least, I apply some Isoplus gel to my edges, and that's it!

The Hawaiian Silky 4-in-1 Miracle worker keeps my curls moisturized throughout the day and provides a light hold. I re-style my hair daily either by starting off with a rinse, a co-wash, or a shampoo and conditioning treatment -- it all just depends on what I feel my hair needs. No matter what though, I make sure to shampoo my hair once a week, because despite the co-washes and rinses, my scalp needs a thorough cleansing every 7 days.

That's it for my daily styling routine. How are you ladies caring for your hair on the daily?

I moisturize with the BB oil at night. I do the braid and bun outs so my hair is nice and wavy when I take them down in the morning. I wash my hair once a week and co-wash every other day. I love my routine =).

Do you know if the Hawaiian Silky 4-in-1 Miracle worker is good for relaxed hair? Anyone that knows please chime in. I have been keeping it simple also, I moisturize before bed with BioFusion Olive Oil Moisturizing hair lotion and wrap my hair up. In the morning just unwrap style and go!

Well I big chopped about 4 months ago now. In the beginning I was doing co-washes daily and just using product to bring out my curl. Then I fould that just leaving in some conditioner was working just as well as product. The product I was using was getting a little pricey? Currently I am trying to wear styles that do not require me wetting it everyday since it is beginning to get cold and I do not want to go out with wet hair. So I have been trying twist outs and coil outs. Still trying to see what to do. I may try some rollers next weekend. So my daily styling varies from day to day. I have not got any regimine just yet. Still experimenting.

I've been keeping my hair in a low bun, similar to the old school sock bun - minus the sock! I'm transitioning and have about 3 inches of new growth and I have been keeping my hair moisturized by co-washing every Wednesday and deep conditioning every Saturday. I use Motions brand Weightless Clear Hairdressing, its oil free and I love it! When I first put it on, I thought it was going to be greasy but once it dried, my hair was super soft and well moisturized. I also spray my hair with a Glycerin, Distilled water, and rosemary essential oil mix and slick my edges down with the Isoplus gel that our wondeful blog-hostess suggests!

I have been wearing a wet bun daily. I use Giovanni Direct Leave In and Cantu Shea Butter, I seal with Avocado oil and then rock a bun. I change the position of the bun every few days. I co wash every three days, but rinse daily. So far this is the best routine for me. This week I straightened for my 1 year reduced heat care. My hair has been natural all my life but i was straightening every two weeks religiously. But happy to say I only straightened twice in the past year. So for this week I will be using a little vitamin E oil on my ends only to keep them hydrated.

I have been going back and forth between twist outs and wash and go. This week I am on my twist out. I co-wash once a week and wash with Organix shampoo every two weeks. For the wash and go I use Kinky Curly which works well for me. For the twists I use Ms. Jessie's products.

I co-wash with divacurl one-condition every two days and sometimes every other day. I braid my hair at night and moisturize with castor oil and seal the ends with olive oil serum. It keeps my hair shiny through out the day. I like clarify my hair on Saturdays with DivaCurl No-poo and deep condition with my dominican germ wheat conditioner. I wear my hair in an afro or do flat twist in the front or wear a head band.

Has anyone tried Organics Texture my Way Curl Keeper? I hear it works great for any curl pattern.
