Hi thanks for dropping by…my name is Antoinette and I’m 26 and currently majoring in photography…and soon to be an interior designer Well any ways I decided to do a blog about my natural hair journey doing the cg method…now I’m no stranger when it comes to being natural…I’ve been natural my whole life. I’ve recently discovered the curly girl method by googling some things I could do for my hair and the curly girl method was one of them and I decided to give it a go on 5/21/2012 and I’m loving it! The reason why I tried it I wanted healthier hair and to get through our muggy, hot, southern alabama weather and to not spend any more money at the salon just to have my hair pressed and I also didn’t want any more heat in my hair…so im really glad I came across this! I wouldn’t know what I’d do without it!

Using Silicones


Well I decided to use silicone in my hair I was all about being The Curly Girl Method (CG) I’m not sold onto using Silicones in my hair I just wanted to open the door for a few changes and test the water out I decided to use Miss Jessie’s Pillow soft curls line and the leave in Condish and the mixed chicks and some Aussie moist line as well these are just some to test things out to see if I like it and see how my hair acts one my hair starts acting up it’s goodbye Silicones 😂 so my question to you guys that are hardcore CG friendly are you open to trying Silicones or have you done this already and saw no benefits from it? Comments below I’m curious to know your feedback

Until next time

So today is wash day for me usually I try to do my hair on Mondays but sometimes work interferes with that but that’s life or just don’t feel like it sometimes 😂 so I had to do it today instead of yesterday

So today I used Mielle Organics products the Pomegranate & Honey line today I haven’t used in a little while so I decided to revisit them. Using them today made me miss how good it smells it actually puts you in a good mood 🤩😍🤩

Theres also a gel in this line which is not pictured it smells the same exact way I have it but this time I opted to use my tried and true eco styler gel (Clear) with them now this was my first time using eco in conjunction with those products but I just say it worked out good my hair is super soft 😇

So I had to get new makeup brushes Mikasa I needed some new eyebrows brushes and I decided to get a makeup blender called the lemon drop. The packaging is beautiful 😍 if you guys love makeup brushes and want to try Mikasa make brushes click the link 👉🏾 Mikasa Beauty also I’m dropping a coupon code for 25% off (onxycurls25) I suggest you guys try the Lemon drop makeup blender🍋 I’ll be doing a Eyebrow to tutorial as well with them on my YouTube channel!

Oldies but Goodies


So when your a product junkie like me and your looking through you natural hair stash and stand there looking at the products and thinking well its wash day so what do i want to use today??? I know Im not the only one on that one lol

So this wash day i decided to revisit an old curly hair cocktail of mine when i first started doing my wash and goes over what i think about 5 years ago. Yep 5 years ago i haven’t touched it since then! up until now. But i actually didn’t have the product in my stash i just bought it at Ulta the jumbo size Paul Mitchell The Conditioner. well if your thinking they are extremely expensive. well your in luck they have a sale going on all your favorite jumbo sizes so click the link above to get it for 14.99 this is i think the last week so yall better act fast and head to the store lol

So after i used them which i haven’t in forever i had to rethink on how much my hair likes and dislike so it was a trial and error for me but my wash and go came out pretty well! In the picture below This is my 3rd day hair! I usually get 5 days out of my hair being down and the rest of the week i just style it up into a puff or some other protective style to get me through the week.

So whats your favorite Curly hair products?  comment bellow i cant to see all the products you all use im interested into buy new things to build up curly hair stash!

so until next time! see you guys later!
