Hello, everyone!! Happy June! Can’t believe we’re half way through the year! This year is just flying by. So many changes coming about. And speaking of changes. If you haven’t noticed already, I finally migrated to WordPress! It’s taking some time to adjust but I am teaching myself how to maneuver through the site little by little. I was always saying I wanted to switch over to WordPress. But I had no idea it would be so hard to use lol! I find Blogger (Blogspot), to be easier to use. I’ve been using Blogger for years now. However, WordPress is a lot better for bloggers. As far as SEO goes & other plugins you can add to further help your platform. It’s pretty neat overall 🙂
So recently, I’ve been making other personal changes. I’ve been kind of excited to do my hair & try new products for my hair. I’ve been watching YouTube videos on more hair care solutions & tips. I have really dry hair. & I haven’t really been taking care of it. I have just been wearing wigs for the past 3 months now. And now that it’s getting warmer, wearing wigs is just too much for me. I feel like I’m wearing a really warm hat lol! So lately I’ve been trying to care for my hair a little more. I am natural & I have 4C hair time. Which is prone to a lot more dryness, breakage & hair damage.
For my wash day routine, I’ve been using Maui Moisture’s product line for Dry & Damaged. I love the conditioner, & the hair masque. But I feel my hair hates the shampoo. I always have to use another type of shampoo for my hair. & follow up with the conditioner & deep conditioner afterward. Recently, I was watching a wash and go video by MahoganyCurls on YouTube. Although she & I have totally different hair textures, I thought why not look into this product line.
I know Ulta had their hair sale recently. I wasn’t able to get it then, unfortunately. But I went to Target & purchased the products there. I wash my hair at least every 2 weeks. I try to do it every two weeks. If I go any longer (& I have), my hair starts to feel super brittle & it’s hard to do. I have to find a new gel soon. The Eco Styler gel dries my hair out so bad & puts so much product build up onto my scalp. It’s really just the worst. But this shampoo really scrubbed away the dirt on my scalp. I was surprised. It says it has no sulfates, but the shampoo suds were a lot! A little too much for my liking. But it left my hair squeaky clean.
The conditioner was really phenomenal. It didn’t feel too thick. It had a little slip to it. Didn’t feel like it was sitting on my hair either. I expected a lot of shedding while detangling because it was 2 weeks in. But very minimal shedding, which is a good thing! I ended up cutting my stringy ends some more. I little left. But I have a feeling I may need to overall big chop 😕
I found that my curls really popped with this conditioner. I love the smell so much! It was easy to rinse out & my hair just felt overall amazing! I deep conditioned my hair as normal & went on to style it.
I go through a lot of curling creams & smoothies. It’s really annoying having to find one that works. I’ve been loving two products by Maui Moisture. However this combing cream really defined my curls. & didn’t make my hair feel heavy at all. It’s pretty lightweight honestly.
When I took down my Bantu Knots the following day, my hair felt super soft! It was however damp :/ So my hair came out super weird 😂 But overall, I love how my hair feels. I would definitely recommend this product line to anyone with curly hair. Especially my 4C natural girls 😄 I was very skeptical at first. I kept putting it back, picking it back up. I’m glad I did. This was my first time trying this brand after years of seeing it in-stores. Nice to know this line in particular was a winner! 😁
