Crowned In Curls: Naturalicious Hello Gorgeous 3-Step Hair Care System

Ladies, how would you describe your curly hair? Do you have tight curls and coils or do you have medium to loose curls and waves? Fact is, not all curls are not created equal; actually, not all hair is created equal. Even twins can have different textures, curl patterns, etc. So how do you, the curly-haired, keep your curly locks at their best? With the Naturalicious Hello Gorgeous 3-Step Hair Care System of course! Depending on your curl type, there is a Naturalicious Hello Gorgeous Hair Care System that’s best for your curly hair.

Naturalicious Hello Gorgeous 3-Step Hair Care System

Naturalicious has two Hello Gorgeous 3-Step Hair Care Systems, one for Tight Curls & Coils and the other for Medium to Loose Curls & Waves. Not only do these products smell incredible, but they are also multitasking masters that love your hair. The Naturalicious Hello Gorgeous Hair Care for Tight Curls & Coils (pictured above) is designed for more coily and kinky hair textures, which require deeper moisturizing and hydration while allowing the hair to move and not be stiff.

The Naturalicious Hello Gorgeous Hair Care for Medium to Loose Curls & Waves is less dense, which prevents the “weigh down” that often occurs for fine hair textured naturals when looking for a deeply moisturizing product. Get to know the products that are sure to make your curls happy, below:

Treat Yourself to Fabulous Hair at the Angelo David Salon

If there’s one thing we don’t do enough of, it’s treating ourselves to more pampering. Sometimes dealing with life’s ups and downs can make you forget to take care of yourself. I’m not talking about the basics like food, shelter, I mean rewarding yourself. We’ve been a bit on autopilot over here and we’ve forgotten about treating ourselves. Luckily we know some amazing people, like the Angelo David Salon, who remind you that you deserve a little pampering. So at the tail end of NYFW, I was treated to an afternoon of fabulous hair at the Angelo David Salon in midtown Manhattan.

Don’t get me wrong, my natural hair is fabulous and amazing in its natural state (see photos below) but sometimes I want a different look; sometimes I desperately need a hair trim; sometimes I’m tired of doing my own hair and having my arms get tired from the day long routine of washing and styling. Again, this is about getting pampered, so someone else handling the task is always a welcomed treat. So taking a break from our daily top knot or low ponytail, the result of my fabulous hair at the Angelo David Salon is what you see above.

Once again, our girl Ivy (pictured below), a staple everyone must visit at the Angelo David Salon, hooked us up with a head full of lush flowing locks and we left the salon in peak fabulousness. We advise everyone looking for great hair results book themselves an appointment for their own day of fabulous hair at the Angelo David Salon.

Not only do they create wonderful experiences, Salon Owner Angelo David Pisacreta, world-renowned hairstylist and thinning hair expert, is known for his high-quality, luxury solutions to thinning hair, including highly-customized human-hair extensions, additions, fillers, wigs, and a genius at hair color. Along with his team of exceptional beauty specialists, like Ivy, they will fulfill your every hair need, no matter what it is. The Madison Avenue salon recently opened its Couture Hair Boutique, to showcase the range of extensions, wigs, and additions available to make it easier for clients to choose an option that suits them and their lifestyle.

Could you use a little hair pampering right now? Are you ready to treat yourself fabulous hair at the Angelo David Salon?

Have Dehydrated Strands? Try Ogx Beauty’s Weightless Hydration Coconut Water Hair Care

I recently tried Ogx Beauty’s Weightless Hydration Coconut Water  product range.  I have a head full of thick corkscrew curls.  As much as I love my kinky-curly locks, sometimes I like to wear my stands straight.  This gently coconut-scented line was perfect for prepping my hair for heat styling.  Best of all, at just $7.99 each, they are surprisingly affordable, and can be purchased at Ulta, Target and Wal-Mart.  



First, I used the Weightless Hydration Coconut Water Shampoo to clarify my hair. It provides a weightless clean, residue-free rinse. My hair was extremely clean but did not feel stripped of its moisture.

I followed with the Weightless Hydration Coconut Water Conditioner.  I really enjoyed this conditioner.  The consistency is very nice.  I love a conditioner that when applied, clings to my strands and make my curls pop.  The Weightless Hydration Coconut Water Conditioner allowed me to detangle my hair with ease.  It rinsed out with ease leaving my hair feeling clean and refreshed.

Next, I sprayed a little Weightless Hydration Coconut Water Hydration Oil on my hair before blow-drying and flat ironing it to protect it from heat damage.  As a finishing touch, I spritzed my strands again with the Weightless Hydration Coconut Hydration Oil for an amazing shine.

Overall, I really love the Ogx’s Weightless Hydration Coconut Water Product Line.  It left my hair beautifully hydrated–even on a tight budget.  I especially love this line for heat-styling as the shampoo and conditioner are great for clarifying and the hydration oil is perfect for heat-styling protection and a luxurious glossy finish.

Dark and Lovely Au Naturale Moisture L.O.C.: Inspired by Naturalistas, Refined by Dark and Lovely

I received complimentary samples of the fabulous trio of Dark and Lovely Au Naturale Moisture L.O.C.: the Super Quench Leave-In Spray, Soak It Up Oil Cocktail, and Lock It In Sealing Cream, and decided to give it a try. I have been rocking my natural hair for almost four years now and have been using the L.O.C (liquid/leave-in, oil, cream) method for over three years, and I love it. For those of you who are curious about my hair type…my hair is mostly 4b all over, except for the back, which is 4a, but the L.O.C method works for all curly hair textures, so whether you’re 4a or 4b, it will definitely work for you.

When I received Dark and Lovely Au Naturale Moisture L.O.C., samples in the mail, I couldn’t wait to try them!! This trio left my hair soft and very well moisturized. For just $9.99 each, these products are a steal! A little definitely goes a LONG way! I have very thick, long hair, and I only needed a dime size of each product on each section of my hair. Thank you Dark and Lovely, you’ve made my hair styling experience so much easier with this impressive trio of hair products. The Dark and Lovely Au Naturale L.O.C. Collection has become my new staple, and it’s certain to be yours too.

Natural Beauty, Natural Hair

My stunning niece has graciously shared photos and how-to instructions of how to achieve her gorgeous natural hairstyle. Using three hair products (one of which she mixed herself) – Shea Moisture’s Restorative Conditioner, DIY Shea Butter and Coconut Oil mix, and Eco Styler Olive Oil Styling Gel – Shanice shares how she achieves her beautiful head of curls.

“First I wash, condition, and detangle my hair in four sections. Going by sections, I first use Shea Moisture’s Restorative Conditioner as my leave in. Then use a small amount of my DIY Shea Butter and Coconut Oil mix (made at home) to seal in moisture and then coat with the Eco Styler Olive Oil Styling Gel (green gel).”

“Next up is twisting each section of my hair in two-strand flat twists. I unravel the two-strand twists when my hair is dry (usually the next morning) then I fluff and gently separate the curls to make it fuller.”

I hope to highlight more features of my beautiful niece on My Life on (and off) the Guest list in the future.

Dark and Lovely’s NEW Au Naturale Celebrates Curl Power

Singer/Songwriter Marsha Ambrosius (one-half of the soulful duo Floetry), Blogger Curly Nikki, and VH1 DJ Amanda Seales helped Dark and Lovely introduce the newest addition to their hair empire, Au Naturale, which celebrates the power of Curls.

Check out some video of Marsha Ambrosius and Curly Nikki welcoming the events attendees

Curly and natural-haired girls enjoyed a night filled with curl consultations from the SoftSheen-Carson Style Squad at the curl stations (stocked with the complete Au Naturale line for guests to personally enjoy), sharing curly hair stories in the Curl Talk booth, taking fun photos at the photo station, delicious hors d’oeuvres and cocktails

Models with curly hairstyles were on display and later walked the room allowing the events attendees to get a closer look at their very soft, curly hairstyles and the products used to create their looks (we are so in need of one of those Curl Power tees).
