Curly Christmas List!

Well the best way to save money on curls is to ask for the products for Christmas!!!!

So here is my Curly Girl Christmas List!:

- Denman D3 Brush:

Is supposed to be great for detangling as well as styling and 
defining curly hair! The D3 has 7 row of bristles but for more 
finer hair you can opt for the D4 which has 9 rows of bristles. 
They can be kind of expensive, ranging from about 8-15 dollars
 which is pricey for a brush . But some curlies say its a staple 
of theirs! View it here. But if you don't trust it's also here on Amzon
! Both cheaper than the asking price at the Beauty Supply!
There's also knockoffs by Goody and Conair which retail for 
around $4.00.  

-Sue Maesta Hooded Headband:

 Also a staple for a lot of curlies. It is currently only sold at Ricky's
 in New York City.  However you can order it online here in black
and a variety of other colors. It is  $12.99 which is really expensive
especially because it "feels like a pantyhose" (AFRICANEXPORT)
But it has been reported by other YouTube natural hair vloggers to
be very versatile and also help to preserve curls at night.  Here is 
Taren916's video of her night routine with the hooded band. And
here she is  again with some cute styles you can do with the band.

You Can Call Me "A!"

Here's all the information you could ever know about my hair!:

  • I'm an african american with (quote-unquote) african american hair but it curls so im happy!
  • I have been natural all my life but last year I took a step in taking better care of my hair
  • I have suffered from excessive heat damage
  • My hair is shoulder length in its curly state
  • My hair when flat ironed it is about bra strap length
  • I love Wash n go's (not sure what that is? comment)
  • I love the whole wet look of hair!
  • I am always looking for new products
  • I have different hair textures ALL OVER MY HEAD
  • My hair type is not on the hair chart of the Naturally Curly website
  • I am not all that into protective styling
  • I love to do wash and go's
  • I have been desperatly trying to get 2nd and 3rd day hair
  • I can't get 2nd day hair because I barely get first day hair!
  • I am open to answer any questions!

Curls for LESS??!??

I know some peoples definition of cheap differs from person to person.
So I thought that I would share MY definition of cheap.

As I have said before I'm a teenager:
NO source of income.
 I get NO allowance
And everytime I ask my parents for money they say NO!

So my goal is to get enough products that work, but at a reasonable price so my parents can get them for me and they have to be able to LAST.

Im majorly cheap...

so for me the most that I will ever spend on a product is $15! I have some products that are more than that, (Carol's Daughter Hair Milk) but thats just because my mom was in a extremly giving mood!

But trust me the only time I will ever get a product as pricy as $15 is if I know that it is going to last!!!!!!

So my goal is to find inexpensive products, that will last me a few months!

Girl Behind The Curl!

Hello curlies!

This is the first of a very long run of blog postings! Thought that I would start off with a little bit of background!

I am a teenager.

NO I am not mixed with another type of ethnicity!
NO I have never had a perm, texturizer or relaxer before!
NO I do not have a specific hairtype!
YES I am African American!
but do I think that means you can't have curly hair NO!

I am here to suggest products, give people ideas and recommedations WITHOUT spending alot of money!

Like I said before I am a teenager, so i have no type of income but I do feel that I can help curly people.

We may not have the same hair texture...
We may not be going through the same hair issues...
But I feel that you can learn from other people no matter what their hairtype is!

We're helping eachother! So feel free to comment, reply and ask questions and I will help the best that I can! :)
