Happy Friday! In honor of Fridays, I’ve decided to do totally unnecessary posts that essentially are a wrap up of my week! Let’s go!
I started out my week by trying for 4 days to contact my barber, with no luck. I was in a crunch and I really wanted to look polished so against my best judgement I went to another barber. *Hangs Head in Shame* Long story short, I’ll be more explicit in another post but after being unsatisfied with the job the barber did, I went and allowed my barber to fix her error. I ended up with a severe case of razor burn.

Last week, my baby sister and her BFF visited!
Since my sister loves my herbal infused oils, I made sure to mix her up a fresh batch! This time, I’m adding lavender for a beautiful scent!
I roller set my hair with perfect results! I’m going to at least make roller sets a bi-weekly thing!
The top photos are the results of my first time trying a roller set.
The bottom photo was taken on wash day, this past Monday.
Notible Differences between the Gel and Foam
- Homemade vs. Store Bought | I love making products at home! It’s simple and I get more bang for my buck.
- Natural vs. Artificial Ingredients| Because the gel is homemade, I’m able to verify that the ingredients are all natural, unlike the foam I purchased. I prefer natural products but I can stomach a few artificial ingredients every now and again.
- Both yielded a soft hold | What I like best about both products is that they each left me with a soft hold! The downside to the gel was the flaking, which means I go back to the drawing board with my gel recipe!
- Strand Smoothness | I plan to test this again, but at first look, the foam wins. I believe this is mainly due to the fact that I’d learned the proper way to roll the hair, from the first experience. In a future post, I will be writing about how I do my roller sets.
Have a great weekend!
