If you’ve been following us online, you might’ve seen us promoting a Friendsgiving Brunch. We’ve hosted several brunch events in the past and thought it’d be great to do one around the Thanksgiving holiday. Our Friendsgiving Brunch was last weekend and we had a great time chatting with old and new friends. The event was at Harlem Tavern and featured brands such as Up Mountain Switchel, Amazin’ Raisin, Kokie Cosmetics, MiracleFlax and Rooted Treasure. We also featured brands like Marc Anthony True Professional and Cherokeeweah in our raffle giveaways.
Some ladies expressed interest in my hairstyle so I’m sharing it in this post. Due to packing swag bags the night before I had two choices: a low faux bun or a wash and go. I chose the latter and cowashed my hair the next day with the Jane Carter Curl Drench Cleansing Co-Wash following up with the Bee Mine Organics BEE•U•Ti• FUL Moisturizing Deep Conditioner.
After finger detangling, I used a combination of the Jane Carter Untangle Me Weightless Leave-in, Kinky Tresses Nourishing Hair Oil and Coconut Mango Hair Butter to moisturize and seal.
A few months ago I shared my general method of how to get a bomb wash and go for your kinky hair. In addition to making sure it is wet and detangled, I included that you should use products that work. Since I was limited with time, I used the Coconut Mango Hair Butter as my styler. Using the butter sealed in more moisture than gel and I still got definition. I think it looks a bit more fuller than usual too. Here is the final look.
Have you ever done a wash and go without gel on your kinky hair? How did it turn out?
