I decided to use Darcy’s Botanicals Sweet Cocoa Bean Curl Smoothing Cream as my leave in because one of its marketed for use as a straightening cream, among other things. I sealed with Grapeseed Oil which can withstand temperatures up to 420 degrees and is commonly used alone as a heat protectant.
I applied the smoothing cream generously on wet hair, put the grapeseed oil over it and allowed my hair to air dry. When it was about 90% dry, I applied a tiny bit Carol’s Daughter Blowdry Cream (I got two samples from Sephora) and set to work. I blow dried on low/warm settings. I was really happy with the results, my hair was soft and very smooth.
I intended to give myself a good trim but it kinda turned into a cut because I did get a little scissor happy. But my ends feel soooo much better and I like the shape of my hair a lot better now. I decided to attempt some big flat twists with Bantu Knots on the ends using a tiny bit QB Amla & Olive Heavy Cream.
I really loved the results which, as you can imagine, turned into bigger hair as the day went by. It’s been 4 days and I’ve yet to re-moisturize my hair because it feel so good and partly because I’m trying to hold off on the return of shrinkage. That will all change tomorrow though. 🙂
Do you do blow outs ? What do you use? I’d love to hear you experience.
Until next time
