Here are mine…
- Shampoo and Conditioner
For obvious reasons.
- Micro fiber towel
After washing your hair – micro fiber verses terry cloth towels prevent snags. You can find an inexpensive towel in the car supply section, or just use an old t shirt.
- Butterfly Clamps
Before styling – use clamps to part in a minimum of four sections
- Wide Tooth Comb
Helps rake large sections of kinks
- Rat Tail Comb
Use the end for neat parts. I’ve been known to be resourceful, and even use the end of a pen!
- Denman Brush
I was very skeptical about using this plastic brush on my thick kinky hair, but wow – now I can’t live with out it.
Add a few drops of oil to each section. My top favorite oils are jojoba, coconut, vitamin E, aragan / Moroccan oil or castor oil.
- Spray Bottle
I get the most twist-out definition by competing twists on dry hair with light sprays of water
- Satin Bonnet
No style is complete – without preserving it at night with a sexy, well not so sexy cover
What is in your natural hair essential kit?
You are such a funny sight
As you sit in the window
Looking out at the night
Once you were a yellow pumpkin
Growing on a sturdy vine
Now you are a Jack-o-Lantern
Let the candle light shine
Why the torment you ask? We’ll my government name is Jacqueline. All the kids would point to me, and look at me singing. Oh the agony! Jack-o-Lantern. I will never looked at a pumpkin the same way.
Now I love fall because there is something in the air. To me its a chance to cleanse, start over; like shed extra baggage. Awww, there is a new energy in the air.
Be safe in whatever Halloween activities you have planned!
So my New Years Resolution was protective styles, protective styles! On day 14 of the year I’ve cheated already :o(
