Avocurl Daily Moisturizer: Twist out (Brand Ambassador)

Hey Maicurlies,

Today I am super excited to share some news along with a tutorial! 

I was recently contacted by a natural product company called Avocurl. The owner (a gorgeous and extremely lovely natural herself) asked if I would be interested to join her Brand Ambassador program. I of course did my research on the company and their products before happily saying YES! I will have a product review video and post later this week but just a heads up, I was more than pleased to say yes because of the product itself (the ingredients in the products and the back story behind them). 

So without further ado let’s get on with the tutorial shall we:

I started on freshly co-washed hair and used: 

  • Avocurl Daily Moisturizer (as a leave-in)
  • DIY Coffee Bean Infused Almond Oil (to seal)
  • DIY Flaxseed Gel (for hold and definition) 

I applied the products as follows: Moisturizer, Oil and Gel. I let my hair dry and set overnight before taking down my twists with a little oil on my fingertips. I separated my very very very defined curls, fluffed a little and Le Fin! 

As the days went on, my hair got bigger and better (always happens with me and my fine hair strands). The photo below is day 3. 

Like I said, I was sent two products so my new tutorial will be using the Conditioning butter to do a wash and go followed by a product review of both. 

I want to quickly rethank Jasmine for sending me her lovely products, I look forward to working together with Avocurl

(Disclaimer: all thoughts and experiences expressed are my own honest review).

DIY Coffee Bean Infused Almond Oil (Recipe 6)

Hello Maicurlies,

My oil infusion has finally come to an end. I know, I know you all are doing a little happy dance and saying fiiiiinnnaaalllly! Yup this is it, no more oil infusion frenzy.

coffee beansAs you probably guessed (thanks to the title and picture) the oil I will be sharing is my DIY Coffee Bean Infused Almond Oil! Doesn’t the coffee beans look oh sooooo good?!

Right, first off I need to stress how much I LOVE this oil!!! Of all the 6 in fusions I have done this is right up there along with my DIY Rose Infused Grapeseed Oil. As with most of my infused oils you can use this one for both your skin (face/body and scalp) as well as your hair.

For the hair:

  • Reduces hair shedding and said to reduce excessive hair loss because of the antioxidants present in caffeine.
  • Increases hair growth since caffeine promotes blood circulation in the scalp which promotes growth.
  • Known to darken the hair and slowdown the early onset of grey hairs (with frequent and consistent use)*
  • Adds sine and dimension to the hair due to the darkening effect of the oil

*Should you have bleached/blond or dyed hair you do not want to darken, I suggest not trying this oil.

For the skin:

  • The caffeine helps reduce puffy and dark circles under the eye.
  • Tightens the skin giving you a youthful fresh glow.
  • Its anti-inflammatory properties is said to reduces redness in the skin and inflammation.
  • Said to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
  • Known to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face.
  • Fights free radicals thanks to the antioxidants contained in caffeine.

Mixing Process:

I have a video up on my process:

NOTE: I am not a dermatologist nor a doctor. I provide this for informational purposes only so please consult with a professional before you apply anything new to your skin or hair. Should you be taking medication or creams from a medical professional please do not replace that with my DIY recipe – consult your medical professional first! If you are allergic to any of the ingredients I use do not use them. Do a small patch test on the inside of your arm when trying anything new before applying it all over your hair/skin. Always ensure to dilute the Essential Oils (EO) in a carrier oil as they can cause skin irritations if used undiluted. If you are pregnant you should NOT use any EO.

If you try this please let me know how it turns out. If you make your own Infused Coffee Oil I would love to hear from you!
