If you’re a curly girl and haven’t heard of Bumble and Bumble where have you been?? This whole line is amazing and I cant wait to share it with you all. Bumble and Bumble have been around for as long as I remember, but this is their first line that caters to curly hair. I was a bit skeptical before trying these products, not knowing how my hair would react or even if my hair would like them. But I was pleasantly surprised upon trying them! And I’m glad to say some of these are now my staples. View Post

I am absolutely in love with the Adore Curls product line! Not only are their products natural but they are also cruelty free. These products cater to every hair texture and are made with luxury ingredients. I tested these products for over a month on my hair to see how it would react, check out the review below for more deets!

Light Conditioning Cream & Moisturizer
I may have found another staple! Not only is this product lightweight, but you can also use it daily as a moisturizer! The consistency is medium to light and a little goes a long way. I used this on my wash and go and on twist outs and they turned out lovely!
Retail Price: 16.00 for 8oz.
Ingredients:Distilled Water, Pure Kosher Vegetable Glycerin, Conditioning Emulsifier, Sweet Almond Oil, Premium Fragrance Oil, Vitamin E, Paraben and Formaldehyde-¬Free Preservative, Premium Fragrance Oil

Whipped Dream Hair Butter (Trial Size)
This cream is amaze balls! I used this to coat my strands for extra moisture and it did the job! Not only did it keep my hair moisturized but it even softened it as well. You can even use this on your skin! It has a thick consistency, but once you rub it in your fingers it becomes a really light pomade. It also smells delish, like a tropical concoction!
Retail Price: 18.00 for 8oz.
Ingredients:Shea Butter, Argan Oil, Golden Jojoba Oil, Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Vitamin E, Premium Fragrance Oil

Liquid Luxe Hair Oil (Trial Size)
This is such a great sealant! I used this oil with the LCO Method (Liquid, Cream & Oil), but aside from the LCO Method this oil can be used is so many ways! Hot oil treatment, pre-shampoo, sealant and even on your skin! Sealants are great for locking in moisture and this product does the job.

Final Thoughts:
I was really impressed with this product line; my hair responded great to the Adore Curls products and my hair felt moisturized without me having to reapply more product. I also found that it did not cause any heavy build up, which is a major plus! I will definitely be adding these as staples. I noticed that my hair always responds better to products that have natural ingredients as opposed to the rest. The only two con’s I found was the smell in the Light conditioning Cream, it has like a minty smell that I wasn’t crazy about, but I found that once it dries it totally goes away! The other con would be the price, it is a bit on the expensive side, but the products are totally worth it! The ingredients are of high quality and natural, which are going to help keep your hair and scalp healthy. I love that the creator of these products is also a naturalista and has formulated these products after realizing that the key to healthy hair and great products is quality ingredients.

Have you ever considered diffusing your hair? Or wanted to know the main purpose of a diffuser?

The air force from a hair dryer can ruin clumping and curl formation. A hair diffuser can reduce the air velocity from your hair dryer, allowing you to dry your hair without disturbing your curls. Diffusers are also perfect if you are in a hurry and need to dry your hair quickly. They also are great for adding volume to your curls.Here are 6 quick tips on how to use a hair diffuser to keep your curls looking great every day.

  • Use a diffuser that fits your hair dryer. Universal Hair dryers work well with just about any hair dryer.
  • When using a diffuser, you want to tilt your head upside down to allow the curls to hang away from the scalp, or lift them up from underneath Have your favorite stylers in your hair. If you have time, let your hair air dry for a little while before you start to dry it with a hair dryer and the diffuser.
  • Set your hair dryers heat setting to medium. If you are in a hurry the hot setting will work but be careful not to over dry your hair. That will cause frizz to occur. If you are undergoing a no heat regimen, use the cool setting. It will take longer but it is just as effective.
  • Hang your head sideways or upside down. Touch your hair gently and put curls in bowl of diffuser.
  • Be careful not to disrupt clumping and curl formation. This is a gentle but tricky process.
  • Keep this up. Working in sections until hair is 80-90% dry, then let the remainder air dry for a long-lasting style.

    Here is a tutorial by Naturally Curious showing us how she uses the diffuser on her Natural Hair:

A few months ago while I was thrifting, there was a set of Hair Rules Products in a package, for dirt cheap. So I decided to buy it, although I didn’t really try it until now recently. So I was in need of cleansing my hair and I did not want to use shampoo, but needed something more effective than co-washing. So what the heck, I decided to give this product a go! And I loved it! It instantly softened and detangled my hair and it smells soo good! It left my hair feeling so moisturized and I was done detangling in the matter of minutes! My hair felt cleansed, soft, and hydrated. This product is great for cleansing your hair without that lathering feel of shampoo, which dries out your hair. So if your looking for an awesome no suds shampoo that will detangle and leave your hair moisturized and cleansed, this is definitely a cream cleanser worth trying. This product is around 12-13 bucks and can be purchased at Rickys, or Amazon.com.
