Hey Curlies!

Okay, so this is long overdue. BUT, I wanted to be sure to blog about my experience with some products I got from my Curlmart Haul: Karen’s Body Beautiful Sweet Ambrosia Leave-in Conditioner, Oyin Handmade’s Hair Dew, Whipped Pudding, and ย Burnt Sugar Pomade. Yes, I used all of these products on my hair at once because yes, I have very high porosity hair. I have to layer products in order to really maintain moisture (You can read more about that here, if you’d like).

Anyway, let me just say that I absolutely love ALL of these products! After washing my hair, I just twisted it up for the next day. I first applied the KBB Sweet Ambrosia leave-in conditioner to each section. I loved the way it felt going into my hair; it’s creamy and has a nice slip to it. I also smells AMAZINGGG. Next, I applied Oyin’s Hair Dew, and finished with the Whipped Pudding, also by Oyin. I can’t really place the scent of the hair dew, but it has a pleasant smell. It’s also very moisturizing, but a bit thicker than the Sweet Ambrosia–the hair dew is more of the consistency of a thicker lotion. The Whipped Pudding smells AMAZING too–it smells like chocolate, I wanted to eat it! Lol..but I didn’t ๐Ÿ™‚

Lately I’ve been doing my wet twist out method, so the next morning, I dampened my twists with a water/aloe vera juice mixture before unraveling and fluffing–my hair was soft, moisturized and super defined. I loved it! I sealed with the Oyin Burnt Sugar Pomade and that was it! I couldn’t keep my fingers out of my hair that day! ๐Ÿ˜€

Til Next Time!



I’ve been wearing my natural hair for almost 2.5 years now, and I’m STILL searching for staple products–a leave-in conditioner that I can use daily with little to no build-up, a good deep conditioning treatment, a good sealing butter, and some type of pomade that will give my hair some sheen.

SO-I decided to finally try some products from They have a great array of different brands and products. I should get my order this week-YAY! These are all products that have great reviews, so I’m excited to see if my hair likes them. I’m hoping I’ll find at least a couple of staples out of these products..*crosses fingers!!*
