Hair Story Pt. II

Alright y’all. My hair has changed a lot since my last hair story. I must first apologize for this late reply to all the questions I received since changing my profile picture over on the right. But, here goes. After an 8-year lock journey, I wanted a new look, so I returned to my fro! Big change, right?

As shown above, there are several styles that can be achieved with locks (photos snapped in 2008). But, this time around, I wanted hair that was big. I wanted hair that was full. So, I unleashed my fro by cutting and loosing out my locks.

To manage the new mane, I sought the expertise of the YouTube Naturals, frequenting the channels of Rustic Beauty, BrownfaceTV, Naturally Scandalous, and many others. I also morphed into a product junkie, sampling every hair product line from Karen’s Body Beautiful to Miss Jessie’s. Those expensive product testing days are over, for I have found what my hair needs in the Komaza Care line.

Here’s an updated favorite haircare products list.

Favorite shampoo—Carol’s Daughter Rosemary Mint Shampoo. It leaves my scalp clean without stripping my hair of moisture. I’ve also become a fan of the Khoret Amen Herbal Shampoo after finding it in Marshalls for $4.99.

Favorite Conditioner—Komaza Care Califa Care Conditioner. My tangles surrender to this conditioner. And, it smells amazing.

Favorite Moisturizer—Komaza Care Shea Butter Lotion. This light and non-greasy lotion penetrates my hair leaving it soft and shiny.

Favorite Moisturizing Spray—Komaza Care Califa Care Spray. This is not your watered down conditioning spray. It is thick and rich with conditioners. It is so thick that I usually dilute it thereby stretching one bottle.

Favorite Stylers—Komaza Care Coconut Curl Lotion and Coconut Hair Pudding. Both of these products are moisturizers in their own right. So, when I want well-defined curls, I just use these products, either the curl lotion alone or both the curl lotion and the hair pudding.

    Your hair looks FABULOUS in all styles–especially the twists in the shorter styles…and the one where the curl definition is more accentuated…but I like them all–and the fro is cool on you and "of the moment!"
