Texturize Hair

African-Americans and texturized hair: In my opinion a far better and healthier option than bone straght relaxer. Keep in mind, I am not an expert... Texturized hair, like many things in life can be a pain and a blessing. In the coming weeks, I will delve into other aspects of texturized hair.

This is a wet version of my texturizer. The photos were taken sometime in the beginning of 2008, therefore, I cannot accurately name the products used. However, since I am not a product junkie, I would perhaps have used a combination of texture my way curl keeper from Africa organics, along with scurl activator. It's all about trial and error when it comes with experimenting with texturize hair. As the old mantra goes: Practice, practice, practice. My hair type sans texturizer is around 4b.

I am a firm believer that knowledge is power. Years ago when I first began experimenting with texturizers, I had no idea what I was getting into. All I wanted was versatility. I knew a texturizer would be my best friend in this region. And thankfully with much pain and frustration, and bad hair days, I found a few beauty staples to keep my texturize hair looking fabulous! (Yes I said it!) Fabulous texturize hair!

If you are new to texturize hair I would be more than happy to answer you the curious mind; so feel free to drop a note on any texturize hair question that you may have. Like I said before, I am not a texturize hair expert, but I know a few little pointers that may just steer you in the right direction in achieving fantastic looking texturize hair. Best of luck!

I remain your dearest friend and advisor,

Texturize hair

Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque

What is green, quite affordable (under $4.00) and will suck the gunk right off your skin? You guessed right, Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque. Who would have thought something so affordable would deliver such great results?

I first started using Queen Helene almost 8 years ago and have never looked back although I have been promising myself to give the aztec clay a try.

Queen Helene Mint Julep mask promises and delivers the following:

Will Dry up acne pimples

Rinse away blackheads

Shrink enlarged pores

I use it whenever I have a zit coming on or during my weekly/biweekly facials just after steaming. Again, queen helene mint julep masque is worth every penny.
