I received this product in the sample size and have used it several times since receiving it! A little bit of this gel does go a long way! I have 4c hair and gels are always one of my must have for my twist-outs or whenever I need to lock in moisture without using a butter or grease. When I received the first thing I did was opened it and this wonderful smell just took over me! I love,Love,LOVE the scent of this! The scent had me so eager to try it that I forgot to spray my hair with water before even applying it.Guess what? I didn't need the water. YES, NO WATER WAS NEEDED! Now, everyone with kinky hair knows that water must be used before anything else is.Once I applied this to the sections of my hair, I literally felt it dissolving, and it felt so good to my fingers! I immediately felt the moisture in my hair and was easily able to run my hands through it. As I was twisting my hair, I noticed that it had a nice shine to it. Not only that, but the twists stayed in place and didn't unravel. I think unraveling is one of the main things naturals hate to happen when  twisting their hair! The next morning, my hair was still moisturized with shine and I must say this is the real deal! My twists were still in place and soft, no crunchiness or hardness what so ever! I could definitely tell the difference in my twist pattern! It was so well formed and pretty compared to the other gels I'd been using previously!  My twist-out came out very defined and as mentioned before I didn't have to use that much gel too get my results! I know the price may be a little pricey for some but it is definitely worth every single penny! I can already tell you that this will be on my back-to-school shopping list for Target! This has officially become another one of my staple products!


Would I recommend this to a friend? YES!

My Natural Hair Journey: A Teen's Desire

Today I finally took out the time to tell you all about my natural hair journey for the first time EVER!
(I'm 9 almost 10 months natural as of now btw!)

The Journey:
I had very long and thick hair when I was a little girl. Before and after I started getting perms. I got perms at prob. about 5,6,or7, can't remember lol. One day we were in Wal-Mart and my mom was about to get the pink touch (one with olive oil) which she always uses on my hair until her friend came up and talked her into getting one of those perms were 2 come in the box for the same price as one pink touch perm. My mom gave it a try and afterwards while my aunt was styling it she noticed hair was coming out. She thought my hair was just shedding. Weeks after weeks my hair was getting shorter and shorter and within a year I went from Mid-back length hair to neck length.:( My mom,grand-mom,and auntie were very mad. I was furious!! I longed for that long hair I had and sometimes cried because my hair just stayed neck length. I would go off and on to the salon after that and the stylist def. knew what she was doing because my hair loved it and grew shoulder length. After while I started going to different stylists and back to neck length it went. Fast forward to my 8th grade year when I went back to the salon that I thought made my hair grow oh so fast. My hair was so damaged she ended up cutting it ear length. I was disappointed but loved the look after I'd grew too it. I got some kinky twists last March and after those were taken out I got  a perm that would be my Last one! I didn't really know that I was going natural. I was just giving my hair a break for a couple of months. Come September, I started looking at straw sets since my mom had suggested I would look cute with them and came across these beautiful women with natural hair, one in particular NikkiMae2003. I was so inspired when I saw her get the BC and watched her hair journey and her styles and tips and saw how natural hair grew so fast,health, and almost any style. I was so anxious to have a 'fro that even though I had a appointment with a stylist that Friday I watched people cut their hair at home and started "experimenting" until my mom said that I should let someone who knows what they're doing do it. So I did  and on that day September 23rd  I was grinning the whole 10 miles back home posing for the camera , and was so thrilled with all the positive feedback I got from the stylist, my mom, grandparents, and a lot of my friends! I was so skeptical about going to school being the 1st black natural girl. I looked over it, got up that day ,(the 26th to be exact ) and stuck my little flower in my hair and went to school. A lot of the girls loved it and was asking me how to get their hair like mines and how I did it.Some people were being simple minded and talked about me,because they never thought I would've did it. I looked over some and talked back to some but after they saw how good of condition my hair was and the styles they were the main ones giving me compliments.Now we all get the "Why you cut your hair, it was so long?!" When in actuality it was short and unhealthy before.  Now almost 10 months later my hair is healthy, I've built up my self esteem (it was high before but it's even Higher now! lol) and learned to just be me and not be scared to be unique with my kinks.That's how I got my username by the way lol Unique girl with Kinks at the age of 14.
I know it's long but I've been longing to do a caption of my natural hair journey while transitioning and not transitioning and I finally did it!!!
