Sometimes makes me carefree.

I have realized the many personalities of my hair is a direct reflection of me.

I have shared in a previous post, how Uncle Funky’s Daughter was one of my non-negotiables and I have received a few emails and messages about my hair so, I thought I would share with you!

So, as I have been rocking this natural as can be journey (lightly texturized- I’m still quite embarrassingly tender headed), I have been looking for products that work with me and my lifestyle- easy, carefree, and polished if these can coexist? Given my traumatic experience with a new hairstylist who burnt my scalp and damaged my edges- I was not letting anyone else in my hair EVER! So natural it was…. Five years ago- almost!

Transitioning was easy, as I go from one hairstyle extreme to the next (I used to be addicted to the weave!), however finding the right product for me was the challenge. I have tried Africa’s Best from Walgreens, Kinky Curly, and about three months ago, I came across a new product that my local beauty supply was forward thinking enough to try (Thank you Shades of Afrika!) called Uncle Funky’s Daughter. Just on the name alone, I was intrigued- so I bought the Curly Magic for definition and control and Thirsty Curls for day 2, 3, and sometimes 4!

For starters, I love the packaging and the price point. Along the same lines of its competitors, I love that the Curly Magic comes in a pump! I do not have to dig into the jar and can control the level of product in my hair! Thirsty Curls, to me, revitalizes my Curly Magic over the days after I wash my hair quite nicely, keeping my hair softer, more curl defined, and happily moisturized!

On top of everything, I loved that Uncle Funky’s Daughter is paraben, sulfate, and “junk-free” in their natural product line! Now while I do NOT profess to be a “natural hair” blogger, I can attest to my love for this product and its way it works for me!

Most recently, I played with the Rich and Funky Shampoo (I usually used Panteen Pro-V Relaxed and Natural) and the Richee Rich Conditioner! !!!!!!! is all I can say! I LOVE the way my hair feels afterwards! 🙂

Funny, as I was in NY this past week, the humidity did something different to my hair- I noticed with the weather change from the desert to the humidity, so did my hair! I love my hair in the Cali Desert Heat better! LOL
