Yeah, I will wear it up. I am thinking of making big pin curls, still not sure. I may experiment in the next couple of days.

No, MC, we are going to a party held in a hotel in Crystal City. I heard it advertised on 93.9 WKYS a couple of days ago. I was Rolling Eyes because I can imagine the type of crowd we will have. I am going to roll with it and make the best of it.

Thank you!

====================================================================

Last night I pre-pooed with brahmi oil and detangled with it in my hair. After it marinated for more than an hour under a plastic cap and satin cap, I rinsed it with warm water and cleansed with Hairveda's Amala Cream. Oh wait, I used Giovanni Reconstructor Conditioner (in red bottle) as a light protein treatment. I left it on for five minutes or so. It was now time to apply my kalpi tone (ayurvedic powder with amla, maka, shikakai & a host of other herbs). I mixed it with warm water and about a tablespoon Giovanni's 50-50 Moisturizing conditioner. When I added the conditioner, the consistency of the mix changed--it became grainy. Steamed after sitting with the mix on my hair for about 30 minutes. It was not too difficult to remove the mix. My hair did not feel as I hoped it would. It was quite tangly. I know this is from my different lengths and different textures but I know there are products that work well to combat both issues.


This was even after applying a watery mix of YTC to help rid hair of mix. I did this to kind of reup the moisture. I think the problem was I overcleansed.

To style, I used DB's Hibiscus Honey Banana (something like that) LI. Over top, I used a mix of castor and jojoba oils. I slept in six twists on two flour sacks covering my satin pilllowcase and towel.

My hair was about 60% dry this morning. To moisturize further, I applied Afroveda's Curl Define. I spritzed my hair a bit and applied Pur Whipped Gelly. My hair is a little hard. I will likely co-wash it tonight and just use a leave in and the Curl Define. I may use a curl cream to help style. We shall see.

What are your plans for New Year's Eve?

I am shopping my closet so I will see what I can do, lol.

================================================================

Product descriptions are from Hairveda.com.

--Amala Cream Rinse-Gentle Hair & Body Cleanser!
Amala Cream Rinse is a Creamy Hair & Body shampoo which lightly removes dirt & oils. ACR is formulated with all natural lemon & orange oils and specifically designed to clean tresses. ACR is also great for those with sensitive skin types. Give your hair and body a light cleanse with our unique formula.


REVIEW:
I have used the cream rinse a few times. I like it. My hair feels clean yet not stripped or hard. I typically use natural products so this works great.


--Whipped Cream 3 in1 Ends Hydration, Leave In & Moisturizer
We took out all the wax and replaced it with Rich and creamy unrefined Shea Butter!
Not too heavy, not too light! Whipped Cream has Just the right amount of moisture and oils to give you moisturized ends.

Whipped (Baggy) Cream was originally formulated to work with the baggie method. However our customers reported that they use it for roller setting, wash-and-go styles, sleek ponytails, and as a leave in conditioner.

Just a dime size amount will do! It softens your new growth, adds unbelievable shine and gives new life to your hair! Your ends will love HairVeda's Signature Whipped Cream. Product may settle. Just shake well before use.

REVIEW:
I am not sure if the one I purchased has shea. If so, it may be the reason why a little goes a long way for me. This was used with the whipped gelly on my WnGs this past summer. I like it.


--Whipped Clouds- Rich Whipped & Fluffy Shea Blend for Body& Hair!
Our Whipped Clouds is an amazing combination of Aloe Vera and refined African Shea Butter. Our butter blend is amazingly hydrating to the body and hair. The African Shea used in our formula is whipped with great care.
[center]Our special Shea mix is the fluffiest blend you'll ever find! This butter contains no preservatives or harsh chemicals. Whipped Clouds provides the quench natural hair craves. Give it a try! Whipped for you by hand! It’s the creamiest blend you'll encounter. Treat your skin. Quench your hair! Apply to dry hair.

REVIEW:
This stuff smells divine, OMGoodness. I used it on dry hair and let's just say it did my hair right. My hair is finicky when it comes to shea but this mix is a winner for Grace!

--Whipped Gelly- The Revolutionary Hair Gel!
Whipped Gelly is a light holding gel without the harsh alcohol and flakiness. We crafted this gel to give you a soft hold & add moisture at the same time!

Throw away the brown gel! We have something a little better. We make our gel with Pure Aloe Vera Gel, Vegetable Derived Humectants & rich Avocado oil. Whipped Gelly adds a soft, mild hold to your hair. Expect an increse of wave definition & curl pattern for type 3 & 4 hair types.

Whipped Gelly helps defines curls and waves for natural hair & newgrowth. This product adds sleekness to relaxed hair.

REVIEW:
The product did what it claimed. My only concern is the amount of product I had to use. When I WnG, I do so every three or so days. The container I purchased did not last long Neutral . It is now offered in a 1-lb container.


--Vatika Frosting-Enhanced Coconut with a Sweet Twist!

Vatika in Hindu means garden. In India, coconut oil is widely used in Ayurveda health remedies. This special blend of coconut oil, henna, lemon & Amla provides natural nourishment to your hair.

The blend gives the hair body and radiance, taking care of the critical balance of nutrients. Our pure coconut oil is blended with henna and Amla with lemon to strengthen each strand of hair from within.

When used 1 day before washing, Vatika Frosting provides a protective coating promoting shine and health. A scalp massage with Vatika Frosting also promotes hair growth. To maintain the oil and moisture balance of your hair, remember to do a conditioning treatment with oil at least three times a week.

REVIEW:
This smells so good. It almost makes me want to try to eat it. I love sweet smells. I used it to pre-poo and to seal my ends. I liked it in both applications. If it hardens a bit, it will melt quickly when rubbed in your hands. A little goes a long way.

My hair feels uggggh. I think it was a mixture of all the products and oils after DCing. I am going to have to cleanse it tonight. I will use my Curl Junkie, Blended Beauty or Koils by Nature cleansers. Will likely use a thick heavy conditioner to ensure it is well moisturized--thinking Yes to Cucumbers or CJ's Deep Fix.

I will mix my leave in using aloe vera gel and oils, not add the oils after applying the leave in.

Chrs! Hello! Hi! Catching up on threads after being gone for a few weeks. Your hair looks phenomenal as always! The buns, the braids, I mean, I could go on and on!

Thanks for the reviews on the afroveda. While I don't order much online I might give some of that stuff a try!

Everything they said!

The only thing missing is a close-up of what I know is a fab makeup combination.
Of course as soon as I add that comment, the larger view of the pics comes up. I was right the make-up is fab!
