Yay! It’s my Nappiversary!!! Well almost…I’m a couple weeks early. I did my first blow out in like a year using Carol’s Daughter Sacred Tiare Anti-Breakage and Anti-Frizz Styling Cream.
I washed my hair using my one of my HG cleansers, Original Moxie Get Clean No Foam Shampoo, and deep conditioned with Original Moxie’s Intense Quench Deep Conditioner. Heaven in bottles for my hair! I then wrapped my hair in a t-shirt, plopped, removed the shirt, divided my hair in 4 sections, and used a water based spray leave in on each section followed by nickel size dollop of the styling cream and then blew out each section using the tension method with warm heat on the low setting.
I only blew out my hair to see if it made a difference if I trimmed my ends on curly hair vs blown out hair. I would say it took me twice as long but my clipping with my shears was more precise.
I did notice that the styling cream was not greasy and somehow locked my hair into place>>>hope that makes sense. It really smoothed out my thick and dense hair. It wasn’t so nice to my ends as far as smoothing but that may be due to my method of blow drying.
After clipping my ends>>>I started my regular styling routine opting for a braid out. I dampened each section followed by a creamy styler and locked in that moisture with a whipped shea concoction. I noticed when I dampen ed my hair it took a while to revert to curly not from heat damage but from the styling cream at work>>> good thing.
I can only attest to the products performance as a blow drying cream which I did a pretty good job. I didn’t really need to use I lot of the product. I’m not fancy on the ingredients which are free of parabens, petrolatum, and mineral oil but it’s a long list of ingredients and not sure I know the purpose of all of them. Key ingredients include: Coprah Coconut Oil, Tiare Gardenia, Shea Butter, Moringa Oil, Jojoba, Hibiscus, Silk, Olive Oil.
The price is $12 for 3 oz from Target exclusively. I don’t plan on doing too many blow outs soon but it’s a pretty good product I would say
