Twist Out on Kid's Hair

Below is a pic of my little cousin. Her mom gave her a twistout and look how cute it turned out! I'll have to ask again what she used and update this post, but I had to post the pic for now :)

New Protective Style: Twisted Puff/Bun

I have to give credit to my friend Alex of The Good Hair Blog for this protective style idea. She told me about this before when she did it the last time, but on me it came out terrible. Today, I had to call her and get the details. It looks more complicated than it is but there is definitely a technique to achieving it.

What I did was pull my hair up with a stretchy headband (I used Goody headbands here) as if I were doing a puff (this was done on a 3-4 day old twist out). With the hair that was left out, I started two-strand twisting them around the perimeter of the puff. Once all my hair was twisted (I did bigger twists so it didn't take long at all - about 10 min.) I used hair pins to secure them toward the middle of the puff/bun. This gave the "bun" look/effect. I then used another headband to double up and put in the front of my hair (I just always like to do that but totally unnecessary for you to get this look). I plan to leave it like this until the end of the week.

What is your favorite protective style?

Product Review: Safi Haircare's Pumpkin Puddin'

I had the pleasure of trying out a new hair butter from Safi Haircare over the weekend. It's a new seasonal product called Pumpkin Puddin'. Below is the product description and ingredients, which are also listed on Safi's Website.

This yummy Pumpkin Puddin' is right on time for the holidays! It's light, airy, fluffy and smells like Grandma's pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving day. It has the scent of delicious pumpkin and the perfect mix of spices with top notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, pumpkin and rum. Mid notes of apples, muguet, peach and ginger, paired with nutty vanilla base.
The great thing about Pumpkin Puddin' is that it can be used on your hair and body. The dash of cinnamon that's in this product will keep your strands nice and strong.

Ingredients: Pumpkin Seed Butter, Shea Butter, Aloe Vera Gel, Castor Oil, Argan Oil, Coconut Oil,Tucuma Butter, Cupuacu Butter, Red Palm Oil, Water, Xantham Gum(Thickener), Emulsifying wax, Ground Cinnamon, Sodium Lactate
