Hair Refreshers: Curls Lavish Moisturizer and Carols Daughter Hair Milk

A few months ago I was browsing in Target not really looking for anything in particular! Of course you never go in Target looking for anything, but you always end up purchasing something! Anyways, I checked out the hair-care aisles when I came across these two products. They were on clearance for really good prices, so I decided to go ahead and purchase them. I had used other products by Curls and Carol’s Daughter just not these particular ones.

I initially decided to purchase these products because I noticed that both of them were hair refreshers, which I absolutely love for my hair. They are leave-in moisturizers in liquid form. Although I’m a fan of cream based leave-in moisturizers, but sometimes I like something a little lighter to put in my hair. These work perfectly plus they are very lightweight!

Curls – Lavish Curls Moisturizer (2nd Curl Refresher/Daily Leave In):

  • I love using this on wet and dry hair! I always use it after my hair is freshly washed. This product helps my hair adsorb moisture perfectly!
  • It smells amazing!
  • It is formulated with certified organic ingredients.
  • No sulfates, silicones, parabens, artificial oils, or fragrances.

Carols Daughter – Hair Milk Refresher Spray:

  • I prefer using this on wet hair only! I put oil in my hair after it’s freshly washed then apply this. It makes my curls pop! Plus, I don’t have to apply a cream based moisturizer afterwards if I don’t want to when I style my hair.
  • It doesn’t have a distinct scent. That is definitely a plus if you prefer products that don’t have a strong fragrance.
  • Deeply moisturizes, improves softness, and prevents frizz.

So, if you’re looking for a really good liquid leave-in refresher these are definitely worth a try! Both of them are under $12! Very budget friendly and affordable. Please let me know if you purchase either of them. I’d love to hear your thoughts!

The Perfect Slicked Back Bun

I’m faithful to wearing my hair in a slicked back bun whenever I need a quick and easy hairstyle! I only like doing this style on stretched or blown out hair, because it makes the process so much easier. I prefer wearing a middle part when I wear this style rather than a side part. This hairstyle is perfect for any occasion, because it is super chic and stylish! It takes less than 10 minutes to do this style!

I always use the same products to achieve this look and my hair always comes out great! All of the products are very affordable and can be found just about anywhere.

Steps:

  • I split my hair down the middle to section it off, then I spray it with a little bit of water to detangle it. Your hair must be detangled very well in order for it to slick down smoothly. I prefer doing this style on somewhat damp hair, because it makes the products hold better.
  • I work on one section at a time instead of applying the products all over my head, because my hair slicks down better that way.
  • I then apply Garnier’s Leave-In Conditioning Cream, because it helps with frizz and humidity. Using this product first is a must!
  • I apply Gorilla Snot Gel to slick down my edges and the front of my hair. A little bit goes a long way! Seriously, you don’t need a lot of it.
  • I apply a good handful of Eco Styler Olive Oil Gel to the entire section of my hair, except for the ends of my hair. I seal them with oil and a little more of the leave-in cream.
  • I use a Brush Strokes Two-Sided Bristle Brush to smooth and lay my hair down. I prefer using the firm side because it smooths the hair down better.
  • I put that section in a small ponytail by securing it with a¬†Scunci No Damage Hair Tie.
  • I repeat those same steps on the other section.
  • Once both sections are secured in ponytails I then apply another hair tie to form one ponytail.
  • I then apply the faux ponytail around my real hair, which I made using¬† Motown Tress (Nubian Twist Braid) hair.
  • I then put the faux ponytail in a in a big twist.
  • After that I begin wrapping the faux ponytail around to form it into a bun, while securing it with bobby pins.
  • I then use my favorite LottaBody silk scarf to tie my hair down to make sure that it lays down perfectly. I keep the scarf on for at least 15 minutes.

I know it’s a lot of steps but explaining it takes longer than the actual process! I promise this style takes less than 10 minutes to do!

My hair always feels super soft and not hard nor flaky. To maintain this style, at night I tie it down using the LottaBody silk scarf and putting a bonnet on top. My hair usually lasts up to a week and I never have to reapply more products.
