Hair ornaments such as hair pins, hair clasps and crowns were everyday embellishments of women in old China. During the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing Dynasties (1644-1911), women’s hair ornaments expressed traditional Chinese thought and culture in exquisite, sophisticated techniques.
Don’t forget the average hair growth rate is universal among ALL hair types. But, it is all about RETAINING that growth. But, even after retaining a that growth us Curlies are sometimes discouraged because of SHRINKAGE. Shrinkage is our friend, but it does hide length!
We highly recommend taking some comparison pictures and planning to take them every month or every few months. Visual evidence will motivate you and show you that your hair actually is growing! Pictures can capture hair length, thickness, and overall health. So take some snapshots! Please share your comparison pictures by submitting to the site! http://colorfulkinks.tumblr.com/submit. We’d love to see your hair journey and share it with our viewers :)
“Prive Detailing Pomade - Herbal Blend #43 is enriched with jojoba, herbal blend #43 provides a light, flexible hold for adding texture and definition in a weightless pomade.”
This shit is tiny and too expensive but luckily I have a kind & metrosexual roomate so I get to try it! It’s reeeally thick but once on your hair it disappears or melts inside your hair or something. Lightest pomade I tried so far.
So y’all know I got this product for free to try out but I won’t be using it. Now this is in no form throwing shade on this company but y’all know how I feel about honesty and further more I don’t like being lied to and I’m sure y’all don’t either. So I’m going to let you in on a little something I found out. I’m am not a #naturalhair nazi and I don’t care much about ingredients I just don’t like being mislead by label. So this product clearly states that it is Mineral Oil free, that’s not the case. After further investigation of the ingredients I saw C13-14 IsoParaffin, of course I didn’t know what that was so I googled it and here what I found “About C13-14 ISOPARAFFIN: C13-14 Isoparaffin is a mixture of hydrocarbons (mineral oils) derived from petroleum.” MINERAL OIL when the label clearly states NO MINERAL OIL! This is misleading and I don’t like it one bit. Folks read your labels and google what you don’t know. Because clearly people will lie to get you to buy their products. #naturalhair #teamnatural #teamnaturalhair (Taken with Instagram)

Bumble and bumble Grooming Creme.
This is actually my roomate’s.. I stole a little bit and it was enough to put everything in place. I applied it on damp hair. Let’s see how it works throughout the day.
