Quarantine has gotten me all out of motivation when wash day comes around. I used to look forward to wash day. Now, it’s like I dread it. Pre-Quarantine I could not go 2 weeks without washing my hair and now I push it 3 weeks sometimes. But no matter if I wash my hair or not I still want the look and feel of luscious curls.
Every curly girl knows, the dirtier the hair the better the curls look!!!!
For those of you who are kinda like me when it comes to wash day, I’m going to put you on to how I achieve luscious curls on dirty hair (2 to 3 weeks old). Since I discovered this hack, it’s become my go to.
I’ll be honest, bantu knots do not always work on my hair. I can rock the knots as a style for a day or two, but when it comes to taking them down … my curls are wildly all over the place. Until one day I tried bantu knots on my hair because I didn’t want to wash it. I was amazed by the results. I was able to hold on to my curls looking and feeling luscious for about 3 more days.

One thing I can appreciate is a good protective hair style. I have been natural for over 10 years now, and I stopped using heat on my hair about 3 year ago. Outside on my once a year silk press, I prefer heatless protective styles for my curls.
Last summer Octocurl, a heatless hair styling brand, reached out to me wanting to send me their product to try. I was interested in the product so I tried it and was amazed by the results and have been using it ever since. I don’t know about yall but I find it very uncomfortable to sleep in flexi rods. The Octocurl gives similar curls results to a flexi rod set but with a softer overnight drying solution.
Take a look at how I achieve my flawless heatless curls using Octocurl:
Continuing our conversation from yesterday, today I want to talk about using aloe vera on your skin. If you missed yesterday’s blog…. STOP, click here and go view it and come back.
Aloe Vera is a key ingredient for skin toners, anti-aging serums, and acne treatment. One simple thing that you can do to improve your skin and maintain health glowing skin is rub aloe vera on your skin before you get in the shower. Yep! Its that simple.
Now, don’t expect to see immediate results. But if you keep this practice in your skincare routine, you’ll see improvement over time.
Practice this biweekly:
Cut a Aloe Vera leave in half.
Rub the Aloe Vera gel directly on your skin before you get in the shower.
I have an amazing recipe for a hair mask that will leave our curls feeling and looking so luscious and fluffy, curl friend. This hair mask is recommended for all types of hair textures from damages and fried to thick and frizz. Let’s try it!
Come back this time tomorrow and I will show you how you can use the skin of the aloe vera to hydrate your skin for a natural glowing look.
Before you go, share with me if your have tried this hair mask or plan on trying it soon.
