I know you’re probably thinking – um girl why are you not sharing details of your new hair color?! But I have to tell y’all about one more hairstyle I did before the huge color transformation last weekend. This was a cute and bouncy braid and curl that I achieved using Lottabody’s Moisturize Me Curl & Style Milk and the Shape Me Custard Gelée. I gave y’all a preview of this look when I talked about my haircolor last week, so if you want to see how I achieved the style, check out the video!
While this style looked AMAZING the morning I recorded it, it didn’t have much holding power. My hair kind of poofed up by the end of the day, and with no retwisting was completely shrunken by the next day. This was slightly disappointing for a product that’s supposed to have long-lasting hold, but the directions also say to use on wet hair, so I can’t knock the results if I didn’t use as directed. However, I got to meet and hold and play with my 6-week old nephew so I could care less about my hair!
I’ll soon be launching into protective styling mode so I probably won’t be using Lottabody stuff again until later in the summer, but I definitely want to give the Custard Gelée another shot on wet hair, perhaps with a flat twist out. After trying most of their products in the new collection, I can honestly say that Lottabody has done an amazing job updating their brand to fit the growing natural hair market, with products that are affordable (less than $5 each) and accessible!
