Shopping for people can be challenging, especially if the person is the nostalgic one of your group. Many of us wouldn’t know where to begin because it’s been years since we’ve seen Tamagotchi’s, Pokemon cards, etc. So what exactly can you do? Well, we’ve got you covered! We put together nine nostalgic gift ideas that will be sure to please anyone.
If you have been following me for a while, then you should know that I love rocking my weaves. Keeping my hair braided up and away has proven to be my best bet at keeping my hair healthy and protected. So when I was invited to check out the latest hair addition to Los Angeles- Indique Hair, I did not walk, I ran! I have had the pleasure of rocking Indique hair before and I was eagerly looking for a new install!
Inside Indique Hair Los Angeles
I must say, I really did enjoy the visit! Worth my trek from the Inland Empire to Culver City! YES. I would liken the Indique Salon to a boutique for your hair. Each collection is perfectly sectioned and organized away and samples of the hair is perfectly on display for you to touch and feel… If you are anything like me, then you would be touching every texture that appealed to your liking- picking up samples and holding them next to each other to help determine the style that best matched your liking!
For me, I gravitated to the newest range- the Sea Collection, but more specifically the FIJI Curl range. I learned that Bounce Curl was from India and the Sea Collection is from Asia. Hahahah! Kind of cool to know! Because I wanted a bit of oomph, I finagled with and played with the texture of the Fiji Curl finally settling on the 18 inches… heyyyy boo! It sounded fancy!
The entire store, run by Tee was open, clean, chic, and posh. I really liked the wall of tubes behind the register- it made for an interesting wall piece! I also got to see and learn about the other textures and options that I normally would not visit, the straight and slightly wavy hair… but it was definitely cool to check out… I do love playing in hair.
After I picked up my gift from Indique, I made a beeline for Dee Dee who always hooks up my hair (and has for about 16 years!) with about almost three packs (almost) she shaped, trimmed, and gave my body with this look! While it has slight shedding, I love the variety this hair gives me… I can fro it out or can two strand twist it out! Either way, there is fa variety and it needs moisture!
To remedy this, I use both Cantu Creamy Hair Lotion and Miss Jessie’s Curly Meringue when I twist it up at night. It is taking some getting used to- this new curl pattern! I am happy to have another local resource for all of my hair needs!
