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). 

If you happen to buy any of Avocurl please let me know what you think of the products (and don’t forget to use the code to get your discount!) 

Thanks

Twisted Flexi Rod Set

Hey Maicurlies,

Twisted Perm Rod Set

                                            (Cheat) Twisted Flexi Rod Set

So I have recently become a little obsessed with Flexi Rod sets and wanted to share a method that I like to refer to as the (cheat) Twisted Flexi Rod set. I say “cheat” because I basically wear my hair in twists first for a few days and then instead of just taking down my hair for a twist-out I twirl my hair around Flexi Rods overnight and then have a Twisted Flexi Rod set the following day. 

In this particular example I had my hair in 23 twists for 5 days and remoisturized them two days before putting in the Flexi Rods. To remoisturize I took them down at night, applied my DIY Moisturizing and Curl Activating Spray and retwisted. I felt no need to add moisture before using the Flexi Rods so I just went straight into setting my hair with a little gel. I literally rubbed some DIY Rosewater Flaxseed Gel (FSG) over my twisted hair (without undoing the twists) and then followed up with some oil. The FSG does two things: helps provide hold and has moisturizing properties of its own. The oil helps to seal in the moisture from the FSG and also adds shine. 

I covered my hair with a scarf overnight and then took down the Flexi Rods, unraveled the twists, separated my hair and then lifted my roots a little with an Afro comb. Le fin!
