My First YouTube Video!!!

Hey everyone! I added my very first YouTube video today!!! This is just me introducing myself and letting everyone know what my channel will be focusing on. I didn't really say everything I wanted to say in the video, but I suppose that's what this blog is for! :)

I was seriously not feeling my hair today because I did something different to it, just for the sake of doing something different and I did not have favorable results. My hair wasn't anywhere near as soft as it normally is with my regular routine and I could just tell by the feel and sound of it that there wasn't enough moisture there. I should have rinsed all of the products out and started over, but I knew I wasn't going to leave the house today and I figured one day with drier than normal hair wouldn't ruin me.

I normally follow the conditioner only method, also known as the Tightly Curly Method as pushed by Teri LaFlesh in her book Curly Like Me (which I absolutely love and recommend).  But today I decided to try using two products that I bought at the very beginning of my hair journey and only used a few times because I didn't like how they worked with my hair. They are Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie, and Kinky-Curly Curling Custard.


I decided after a few times of using CES that it didn't work well in my hair due to the high coconut oil content, because my hair doesn't seem to like coconut oil very much. It just leaves it dry and brittle instead of soft and moisturized. And the KCCC just sat in a drawer full of other hair products that I barely touch because I didn't really see anything too special about it and it left my hair hard and kind of crunchy when used alone. Though I did once have pretty nice results when I used KCCC and Tresemme Naturals conditioner together.

So, boredom with my normal routine struck and I convinced myself that maybe I just needed to revisit these two products and see if perhaps I was using them the wrong way, or possibly using the wrong portions. And I had heard of numerous people combining these two products and having wonderful results, so I just wanted to be counted among them I guess. 

Well, you know what they say: Don't try to fix what isn't broken. I wouldn't say I had the worst hair day EVER, but it wasn't a good one. I'll stick to COM/TCM in the future. Instead of trying different hair products,  maybe I'll just try out different silicone-free conditioners. But that's a whole other post so, till next time! :-*
