Double Duty: Deep Conditioner and Texture Cream in one
|Posted on April 11, 2013 at 10:40 AM|
This is for all my curly haired girls who are always looking for the perfect texture cream to give them definition and shine for curls that look healthy and natural, as opposed to crunchy scrunchy curls, circa 1998. All ladies with curls, waves (or even those of you who just heat style) know that a deep conditioner is necessary to keep your hair moisturized and shiny. What if I told you that you could use a texture cream that will give you defined natural-looking curls, and would deep condition your hair at the same time? Would you be ecstatic? I know I was when I discovered this little secret….
Here’s how it went down:
Anyone who knows me, knows that I have been crazy busy over the past month or so. My mom has been sick, and spent about 4 weeks in the hospital. Between working full time, still managing the Pamper Party and product business, AND running back and forth to the hospital everyday, I was just WAY too exhausted to get up early to wash and straighten my hair everyday. Luckily for me, laziness/exhaustion is what led me to the discovery of my new favorite hair product…
One of the nights early in my mom’s hospital stay, I was really super tired around 11:00 PM, but I SO had to wash my hair, so I shampooed, conditioned, and pulled my hair into a bun on the top of my head thinking “ehh, I’ll dry and straighten it in the morning”. Then the morning came, and I slept in! I had a half wet crazy bun and about 10 minutes to figure out how to make it look acceptable. Normally, this wouldn’t be a problem, I would just slap on some Enjoy! (my old favorite) texture cream, blow dry, and go. The problem was, I’m all out of Enjoy!, and now I was down to 8 minutes…
In an act of sheer panic (or sheer genius as it turned out), I scanned the room for something, anything, to keep my wild wavy wet hair from turning into a frizzy mess when it dried. I spotted my jar of whipped body frosting, and thought hmm… shea butter + curls = definition and coconut oil + hair = moisture… lets give it a shot. It might look terrible, but at least my hair will smell amazing! So, I scooped out about a quarter size amount of body frosting, rubbed my hands together to melt and distribute it and scrunched it into my hair, being careful to stay away from the roots to avoid the “grease-ball” look. I made sure to get it worked in really well, and then dried it upside-down with my diffuser. When I flipped my head over, I was VERY pleasantly surprised to find full, fluffy, perfectly defined (but not frizzy) curls. Yahoo! The curls looked as good at they do with the Enjoy! Cream. I spritzed with a little flexible hold hair spray, and went to work. My curls were in tact for 2-3 days!
So, you might be thinking.. OK, so your whipped body frosting works as well as the texture cream, big whoop, what’s the difference between using it or just using the texture cream I already have? I’ll tell you what the difference is, double duty… that’s what! Using texture cream does not improve the health or appearance of hair on a permanent basis. Whipped Body Frosting does. Shea butter and coconut oil deep condition your hair while they’re on. This part of the process only really occurred to me after the first time I straightened my hair. My hair was so silky, shiny, smooth, and full of body. My style seemed to hold up better, and I looked like a freaking shampoo commercial. I am not even kidding you. I was like “Damn, I don’t know what I did differently, but I hope I keep doing it”. It wasn’t until later that day that I realized what was different… the body frosting. It had deep conditioned and nourished my hair while it was on, just like it does for my skin.
Even if you don’t need a texture cream, you can still using the Whipped Body Frosting as a deep conditioner. Just work it into hair before bed, and wash out in the morning. Use a quarter sized amount, and really work it in. This will keep it from being super greasy, but will still give you great results.
Oh, and just one more bonus… my hair totally smells like birthday cake <3
Hope everyone has a GREAT weekend!
