Now, don't judge me. And even if you do--I don't have a high need for approval, so judge away. Believe it or not, I am actually considering adding a select few MORE products to my styler arsenal. Let me get straight to the point. The product junkie and style daredevil in me just joined hands and started skipping down the yellow brick road.
I will admit, I was the girl in high school who sometimes brushed my baby hair down on my forehead to create a plastered down look around my hairline. That was back in the 90s, and fortunately for me, the trend has circled back around. Therefore I will be taking this opportunity to test out the Kinky Curly Gloss Pomade.
I have 3C curly hair that doesn't curl on its own. I don't just wake up with springy, defined wash-and-go curls unless I twist, braid, scrunch and plop the mess out of my hair. Mousses are typically reserved for finer haired wavies, two things of which I understand I am not. Still, there have been a few buzzworthy mousse products among the blogosphere so I will be jumping out of my styler comfort zone and giving the Davines This Is A Curl Moisturizing Mousse a try on my next wash-and-go.
A styling lotion
This styler has always been avoided for me simply because I have no freakin' clue how to use it. I have been natural for 3 years now and still do not understand what a styling lotion is used for. I never really got if it was meant strictly as a heat protectant or as a moisturizer. And since I already have a moisturizing staple and do not straighten my hair, a styling lotion seemed useless to me. But as I am constantly striving to educate myself in the world of curly, natural hair--I will attempt to use the SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Styling Lotion this year once I take the straightened natural hair plunge.
