So, I was getting low on my staple Kinky Curly Knot Today Leave in Conditioner and “anyone who knows me” knows that’s my lifeline for BBH’s hair. So off to Whole Foods I went. Well I’ll be, I see “new” stickers all over the place in the Beautiful Curls section. There it was: Shea Butter & Coconut Hydrating Curl Oil

eeeeEEEEEK! BBH’s hair adores the BC’s Curl Activating Creme and responds great to Shea Buttter based products especially the BC line of styling products (i.e. their curl creme and sculpting wax). Plus, I really wanted to try a different all natural oil and was leaning towards purchasing some coconut oil. But this combo was KILLER!! Had to have it and snatched that bad boy right up, and (I know, smh) the Kinky Curly Knot Today I came for. HHhhhh. YA’LL DON’T LOVE ME!! You say you do, but aint nobody praying this PJ spirit away, OH GAAAAAAA (*runs away crying*)!! LOL! I jus’playin, I jus’playin:)

K. So here is the catch. The lady at the register couldn’t get the oil to ring up (prolly cuz it was so new to their system? Its not even on the BC site listed as a product yet. IDK, who CARES!?!). She looks at me and says “This is your lucky day, I can’t ring it so its yours.” Yes hon, I got it for FREE!! Did He get ALLLLLLLL the glory in Whole Foods?? Trust, He did!! Product review coming with mad love for Beautiful Curls. And to my new friend at the register…

Go’Head Baby!


After a few days of wearing her rope twist ponies style, I noticed BBH’s hair was looking dry. That’s when I realized I should’ve done a deep conditioning treatment after her wearing braids as long as she did. HHHhhh. Bad Mommy. I was also getting a lot of fuzzy action in the front of her hair on one particular side. So I decided to do flat twists…

I spritzed her hair with my water and Kinky Curly’s Knot Today Leave In Conditioner mixture and used a little Kinky Curly Tiny Twirls Styler to redo each twist. This revived her style for a few more days. Then, I started to take the ponies down over the weekend, initially to restyle or circle back to deep conditioning, but ‘lo and behold, the accidental twist out was AMAZING!!!!  I sure did slap a quick bow in her hair and called it the day…

^^^ What is up with that face?!?, LOL!!

Supacute! So we rocked it again as our Sunday Style, adding a small protective flat twist in front left. Ok, folks this is high on the list for school pics!!!! EEK!  Now who has curls???

I do!!

Go’Head Baby!

Braids are out. FINALLY! After many hours of removing BBH’s braids, I pre-poo’ed that evening and washed and conditioned her hair the next day (our hairwashing routine here). But I could not bring myself to put her hair in my all time fav, small twists. At this point I just wanted it to dry with minimal frizz. I decided to do rope twist ponies all over. Starting at the bottom I did box rope twists. I made them a little larger on the top half of her head. Styling products used on freshly washed hair were Kinky Curly’ TIny Twirls Styler and Beautiful Curls Curly to Kinky Sculpture Wax.

She was liking her ponies:)

Is it just me, or did we have some serious growth this summer? This pic is from late May:

Anywho, to maintain this look thru the week I loosen the bands, lightly pat in the KC Tiny Twirls Styler, pull up the front half in a high ponytail and cover w/satin cap. Shake down in the morning. Nice and lovely… Switch up styles forth coming, EEK!

Be Curly!


So I took BBH’s braids down, the longest and smallest I’ve ever done in her hair (a chore if you can tell by Daddy BBH’s recent post). BUT before I did, I needed to go just 1 more week in them with all the travel and getting ready for school drills we had going on. So I went for my trusted wavy braids technique, but decided to try it again little differently. I spritzed her hair as usual w/ our water and Knot Today Leave’In mixture, applied Queen Helene’s Royal Curl Smoothing Oil (see our raving review here) and  Royal Curl Shaping Creme (see our raving review here). THIS TIME, I grabbed a few braids and braided them together, like so…

Then, I decided to try the pipecleaners one more time (see previous results here). I took each large braid and wrapped around the pipe cleaner, like this…

Again, being careful to position the cut wires of the cleaners so they did not poke BBH while sleeping. Covered w/satin cap and this is what we had in the morning, glorious curly braids, EEK!

I finally feel like I achieved the look I was going for initially with the pipe cleaners; hence some closure on this technique (yes!).  Trust, curly braids can save the day!!!

Be Curly!
