I had a busy weekend! Over the weekend, I was a guest of Design Essentials and Runway Curls at the World Natural Hair Show! What was *I* doing there? Well, I got some new hair ya’ll! I had the pleasure of having my head blessed by Shanna, the lead stylist of Runways Curls and I LOVE IT. Like for reals.
Finally… A hair extension FROM us FOR us! – Runway Curls
I shared it with you all on my Instagram and FB page, and from what I gather, you dig it too! But I wanted to give you a bit more information about my new do’, how I am maintaining it, and why I chose this style.
For starters, I found red an install ago and LOVED IT. Like, it did wonders for my life- I felt sassier, bolder, sexier, and all of those –er adjectives. So when I had the chance to play again, I immediately ran back to the red. IMMEDIATELY. So let me tell about what I got. I get asked often about my hair, if it is mine, how I maintain it, and so I thought I would do a nice little post for you!
So, if you are from Atlanta, you may or may not be familiar with The Damn Salon. Well, the owner, Mushiya (whom I love and who is a ball of fire who kept me laughing all weekend) launched her own hair company, reflecting the natural hair that her salon specializes in! “No more Brazilian or Malaysian!” she exclaimed this weekend, Runway Curls features a line of Ethiopian textured hair to reflect and mimic our own!
And for me? I went with Messy [email protected]*ch for three reasons. One- I loved the name. Two, I DIED for this texture, all wild and free!?! Lastly, when I saw the color on the model? I knew it had my name all over it! YUP. I am here for it all.
A bit longer than I have done, razor cut to frame my face, I have all of this drama and I am geeked.
And to care for this?
In pops in Design Essentials. Now, I happened to stumble upon this brand in a post I did for Sally’s and fell in love with their product. No for reals. SO when I was invited to be a part of the festivities this weekend featuring both brands? I knew then, it was kismet!
For my care, I will find myself playing in the Natural and the Coconut & Monoi Collections! Like the Almond and Avocado Leave in conditioner? Honeyyy. The Curl Enhancing Mousse? Let me tell you… a few other brand shave tried to do this and this has been the only one (I tried two others) that defines the curls without drying the hair or leaving it feeling weird. Like, I still have body and shine. *inserts hair flip*
And from the Coconut & Monoi collection, I am all about this Curl Refresher. Taming the frizz is Number 1 while softening the curls… because no one wants crunchy curls (I know I don’t!) Ohhh and if my hair needs a little bit more moisture? I will rock with the Deep Moisture Souffle. I played with this before I got my install too, and ohhhhh it smells divine, but unbeknownst to my new stylist, it was all over my head before she dug in! She noted how healthy my own hair was and moisturized… hehehe (I always love a great nod of approval from the stylist with my hair care).
So ANY who… this is my new hair and what I use (and have been using since November-ish) on my hair!
