Wash and Go Styling: 1. Shampoo with the Natural Curl Cleaner Sulfate Free Shampoo. 2. Condition with the Natural Moisturizing Conditioner. 3. Apply the Natural Curl Enhancing Mousse generously to wet hair and comb or finger through into the desired style. 4. Allow hair to dry naturally or use a diffuser. The Natural Curl Enhancing Mousse will disappear as it dries. 5. Proceed to lift and style, as desired.
For Sets: 1. Shampoo with the Natural Curl Cleaner Sulfate Free Shampoo 2.

So I used this to set my hair for a twist and curl. I washed with Cream of Nature with Argan Oil, and conditioned with Design Essentials Natural Daily Moisturizing Lotion. I did about 30 Twists. I parted each portion and added the mousse. Here were the results after my hair dried and I released the twists
Hey Lovely Naturalistas! So this past weekend was so jammed packed for me whew! It was my Boyfriends birthday, My little cousins sleepover, My brothers last bball game of the season, my nephew came home to visit, Easter dinner! And I straightened my HAIR!!!!!!!!!
Now March 2013 Length Check: ( My stylist dusted my ends. So It is slightly shorter) It grew some but I Cant tell now LOL but healthy hair is better than longer hair! Remember that ladies!! If you are in Chicago Looking for a natural hair stylist check out Salon Pressure, 1333 W Taylor, Chicago, Il
Looks like the same picture LOL! But it’s not wow… I can’t tell the difference at all!
- How I retain Length ( I guess my secret LOL) I don’t clip my ends often ladies!!! Maybe once a year! I have not had my ends clipped since last year! But, My stylist said my ends and hair was healthy because I take care of it and they didn’t need to be clipped often. I know many long-haired naturals that do this. There is also an article on it found here: http://blackgirllonghair.com/2012/08/4-lesser-known-practices-of-naturals-with-long-hair/
Here is a recap of my fun-filled weekend in pictures Enjoy! xoxox Michelle
