Soooo let’s take a break from talking babies, stress, and husbands lol. Recently I’ve abandoned by flat iron and haven’t looked back since. It was a rude awakening when I moved to the South and discovered it was a lost cause trying to make my waves behave. Since then, I’ve found the Curly Girl Method. From research on Pinterest to buying every product I find, I have been doing my best to bring my hair back to life and let it do its own thing 💇🏼
I figured I might as well document what works and what doesn’t. Hence the hair post lol. So here goes….
I decided to give Ouidad shampoo and conditioner a go. Let me be clear, I only tried the shampoo and conditioner because it was on sale in a value pack. I plan on purchasing the styling products to try with them. For now, I used the shampoo and conditioner with Cantu curl cream (for kids because I accidentally picked up that bottle at Publix and decided I liked it 😍).
Overall, I liked the way Ouidad felt during the wash and condition. The smell was amazing and my hair felt clean. I can honestly say my curl pattern wasn’t much different from my usual cheapie products. However, I feel I should report on that again after using the styling products that go with them. I have used the comparable products from Devacurl and I definitely prefer Ouidad because of the lather and texture I was left with. So, the jury is still out but for now I give it 👍🏼👍🏼.
☝🏼 this last picture is after my hair completely air dried and I scrunched out the crunch.
I’d say I have a 2C texture most days and I’m hoping I can get a more defined curl pattern 🙏🏼
So we’ve established that I’m new here and I feel like my newness requires somewhat of a deeper introduction of myself. I think an explanation of my other projects and day to day happenings is just.
My day job is in the insurance biz…I’m an agency sales representative for a great company. I can honestly say I LOVE my job. When I first took the position I was three months pregnant, with no prior insurance experience. Previously, I was a mental health therapist. We had to uproot our lives for my husband’s job and there I was…pregnant, in state where I couldn’t work in my field, and bills were piling up. This job has allowed me flexibility to take maternity leave and now I can even bring my daughter to work with me! #SCORE I’d be lying if I said it was an easy job but the income is definitely on par with the work you put in.
On the side I have partnered with Chloe + Isabel. I did this for two reasons. I desperately wanted to get the kit because the jewelry is gorgeous and perfect to wear at work. (Super professional and great quality) Also, I figured any money I can make being a merchandiser would be a great bonus for me. Hello “fun money”. I also need to brag on this company. Unlike other direct sales companies, they do not put pressure on you to recruit to gain money. So, I have zero worries that I will end up bugging my friends to join my team on a daily basis. They also put a huge emphasis on resume building. They stress that this is a career advancement opportunity and the experience gained can be used to land your dream job. As someone that wants as much sales experience as possible this sounded PERFECT!
Right now, I’m actually hosting an online pop up for the next eleven days. If you feel curious about at least checking out the jewelry follow this link and if you have questions for me, shoot me a message:
