"A holding cream that defines natural curls and waves and eliminates frizz. Combines the nourishing and moisturizing properties of coconut oil and aloe to produce healthy, bouncy, glowing curls and waves. Apply to freshly washed, wet hair for optimal hair definition. Air or hood dry and style!"
This is the last time Amareah's hair was straightened for the Black History Program
at her school. It had never been this shiny before when straightened.
Thanks to Shelley's product, the style and moisturize really lasted.
Here's Amareah the next day. Fabulous hair, right?
When I first tried the curl cream I was excited and couldn't wait to see the results. Well, imagine my surprise when my hair was filled with flakes after it dried. I tried it again another day. Same results. I tried it on Amareah who has the most beautiful natural curls in the world. Same results.
Oh dear, I thought. I gave in and sent Shelley an email asking what I was doing wrong. I was using de-tangler and moisturizer (another brand) on my hair before I used the Naturi Curli. I wasn't supposed to do that. Oops.
(I really like them. I've had them almost four weeks and I need to get the ends re-curled. In another three to four weeks, give or take, I'll go back and get another style.) I'll probably wear braided styles throughout the summer and try the curli product again when I'm "done" with that. I would show you a few pictures of my hair freshly washed, un-dried but I am a bit embarrassed by them. It's not a very attractive look so I'll spare you.
The intense moisturizer is now my favorite hair product and I use it on myself and the three youngest children. It's almost gone so I'm going to have to order some. It should be here just in time for when I'm going to try coaxing my natural curl. Maybe by then my hair will have grown.
Stay tuned for future entries to my hair journal, a new addition to It's a woman's world.
