Today I’m going to share two looks with you. 1) wash and go curls using a new product and 2) my expanding faux hawk!
I decided to start exploring more curl enhancing products. This weekend I tried Kinky Curly curling custard. It was $10.99 at Target.
The instructions on the jar for thick coarse hair (which is what I have) said to apply the custard when my hair was dripping wet. So I did. I’m not sure how much I was supposed to apply but I added a generous amount to sections of my dripping wet hair. After applying it was white and pasty. A few hours later it began to dry…..this is the result:
The Curling Custard Review:
I liked the curl pattern the custard gave me. My curls were defined and did not get hard. They were also more defined and smaller than when I used the Shea Moisture curling smoothie. But 6 hours after application, it was still wet and goopy. 12 hours after application, it was STILL wet! I mean it was drier than 6 hours earlier, but still wet. I didn’t like that part. Maybe I used too much….And that’s the tricky part, making sure you use the optimal amount of product for your particular hair texture and length.
I will try this product again and change the amount I use and see what result I get. If my hair stays goopy for more than 3 hours…I’ma have to call it quits on the curly custard.
The expanding faux-hawk:
After my goopy curl experience I decided to rock my Flo fro for the rest of the weekend. I added some flat twists this morning (which took 8 minutes) and was SO excited about my hair expansion!!!!! The pictures below compare the faux hawk I was rocking in June with this month! Wow!! See the growth? I’m even having a hard time picking it out and patting it smooth!

|Yaaay growth!!!!!!!!! My flat twisting skills have also improved!! 🙂|
I rocked the expanded version with pride at work today! I’m getting out of my comfort zone…but you must admit this look, although a little edgy, is still very neat and work appropriate! 🙂
What do you think??
Peace and blessings!
