Getting My Hair Vacation-Ready: Protective Styling with Curly Curl Cream Lotion and Curly Curl Gello

Posted by Karon Leslie on Apr 6, 2018 12:06:38 PM

It’s that time of year, Ya’ll. The weather is getting nice. Retailers are basically giving swimwear away, and despite not being six years old I’m headed to recess the moment I catch a glimpse of anything bearing the slightest resemblance of sunshine.

I need a vacation, People.

And by vacation, I mean the beach, water, agua, lots of it—at an all-inclusive resort with infinity pools and cabanas, and a real opportunity to demonstrate that the thirst is indeed real, so bring me another piña colada. But if I’m going to be living my best life, diving in and out of pools, riding jet skis, and encountering dolphins in their natural habitat, I need a low-maintenance, protective style that can withstand all my adventures, from watersports in the day time, to cocktails and dinner at night. So, to get my hair vacation-ready, I’ll be using both Curly Curl Cream Cream Hair Lotion and Curly Curl Gello to style my hair into two-strand twists, and give my curls and waves a much needed vacation as well.

I don’t know about y’all, but sometimes the day-to-day natural hair maintenance can make a real procrastinator out of me. Now don’t get me wrong—natural hair care is definitely a labor of love, but have you ever had one of those days where you know you have absolutely no choice but to do something with your hair? I mean you’ve delayed it for as long as you could. You’ve pushed it allllllllll the way to the limit. Next thing you know, you’re standing in front of the mirror, running your hands through those tangled and distressed curls, when it finally hits you. Your hair needs you now. And by now I mean, RIGHT now (cue Donnie McClurkin).

How to Breathe Life Into Your Curls Using Curly Curl Cream

Posted by Karon Leslie on Feb 28, 2018 10:09:14 AM

So, it happened to me on a Friday night. While hanging out with a few friends in a local restaurant, I was approached by a woman who graciously informed me that my curls were “popping.”

Now for all my 3c to 4c girls, you know this was likely a pivotal moment in my life, so much so that I immediately began raving to my friends about Curly Curl Cream in all of its curl-popping splendor. Just a few months prior, I was perusing the aisles of my second home, Target, when I stumbled upon this blessing. Since then, Curly Curl Cream has been adding all kinds of bounce and bravado to my curls, and the compliments have been nonstop.
