Who doesn’t love a quick style to revitalize dry natural hair?
My life has been full of movement these days and I haven’t really had time to buy new products (or do my hair for that matter). I decided to create a quick style series focusing on the products that I have in my possession to 1) cut back on how much product I have and 2) purge what I don’t like. #nomoreproductjunkie
I’ll provide you guys with a cheat sheet on how I executed the style and the names of the products I use, you can save or repost it for future use to reference what I did in one, quick glimpse.
Since I’ve gotten fairly acquainted with dry natural hair, I needed to infuse as much moisture as possible to hold me over until I wash and deep condition. I unknowingly did the LOC Method on my hair (LOC stands for Leave In, Oil and Cream), but it was perfect since I have a new climate to combat.
You can watch the whole process below:

Products I used:
Alikay Naturals Lemongrass Leave-In
Beemine Organics Bee Hold Curly Butter
Beemine Organics Hair Growth Serum (Without Sulfur)
Felicia Leatherwood Detangling Brush
Perm Rods (optional)
Hair Chalk (optional)
What I did:
I started on dry natural hair (duh) and didn’t add any water to the mix.
Next, I lightly spritzed the Leave-In all over my hair for added moisture, then section by section as I worked.
Then, I applied the Curly Butter to the section, really working it into my strands.
From that section I created a smaller section, used my detangling brush to remove the tangles, and twisted the section creating medium sized twists all over.
Once I was finished twisting all sections, I used the hair serum (oil) on my scalp and ends to seal in that moisture.
And because I wanted a little curl at the ends of my hair, I used small perm rods at the end of every twist.
The next day, I took down the rods and twists, separated them to my liking and used a pick and my fingers to fluff out my hair to my liking. I also added a little bit of hair chalk to you know – spice up the style!
What I Would Change:
Well, because the leave-in and the curly butter are amongst some of my favorite products I knew that would work well together. The hair serum? Not so much. I don’t like the way it has made my hair feel over the course of the days after using it. Upon further investigation (i.e. reading the product ingredients) I learned that it contained coconut oil as it’s primary oil base. Naa. My hair/scalp doesn’t like it one bit! So I will be trashing that product.
Also, these products play well with my color treated natural hair and really combat any dryness I felt prior to using them. Dry natural hair is NOT the business and because I’ve been neglecting my hair, I have seen a little bit of breakage (more info to come in a later post).
So there’s the cheat sheet! I say, this is definitely a good way to purge the products and with a cheat sheet I know exactly what I used and how I used it. Grabbing some more products and giving you my two cents on those soon!
