Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to Beauty Tues.
If there is one thing I have learned from growing up with thick, wild, curly hair…it is that “people always expect more of you when you have naturally curly hair,” according to Frieda from the Peanuts *wink* All jokes aside, it really is *sorta* true!
There is this false idea that people with naturally curly hair can just wash it, dry it, and go on about their way….SO. NOT. TRUE. Unless I am going for a 1970s teased afro….because then washing, blow-drying, and heading out would totally work.
Although curly hair can be a real bummer sometimes, it also has its major upsides too! See below:
1. Creating the infamous messy-updo is a piece of cake.
2. Want sexy and volumized hair? *turn head over; run fingertips at the roots of hair; flip up* Done.
3. You can brag to everyone that you have naturally curly hair *Frieda voice*
Now, it is time to get serious.
After trying more hair products than I care to count…AND after my hair decided to not like mousse anymore (not sure what that is about…but it started to frizz SO badly!) I found Not Your Mother’s Kinky Moves Curl Defining Hair Cream. Not Your Mother’s is a fairly new brand on the beauty scene, having launched in 2010; however, this newbie company is knocking the frizz off of the competition with their ALL gluten-free (and paraben/sulfate free) products MADE IN THE USA with no animal testing. I am speechless right now–literally speechless. *but not for long* I am so in love with NYM, and all of its awesomeness. Why can’t other hair companies be this fabulous?!
OH! And did I mention that I majorly adore the titles of all of the NYM products? Y’all know how much I love clever titles…so, of course, I love using a product that is called “Kinky Moves” every morning *wink* Between my FitBit silent alarm (which is MEGA cool) and my Kinky Moves cream, waking up at 5AM isn’t so dreadful *wink*
