I'm not going to lie to you, I have not tried a Dark & Lovely product in ages but when I found out that Dark & Lovely had made a product range for the "natural hair" market, I was both interested and cynical. In all honesty, I've never been a fan of Dark & Lovely even when I had relaxed hair, I found them drying and just generally not the best. However, I was keen to find out if the "Au Naturale" range could change my opinion on the brand.
Sigh... It's that time of year again... When wash'n'gos get swapped for braids & twists and 'fros get swapped textured updo's. There something about Autumn that says "it's time to protective style" - I'm guessing it's the arrival of the colder weather, getting back in to school/college/uni and really who wants to be waiting for a wash'n'go to dry in temperatures just above freezing (well at least here in the UK) but of course, I digress.
So I wanted to compile a list of ten super quick, very easy protective styles for those of us who may have a hectic/busy lifestyle and cannot spend more then 30mins-1hr styling hair but also for those us who just don't have patience to spend more then 30 minutes doing a hair style. So check out the videos and let me know what protective styling will you be doing this autumn?
1. Goddess Braid
This style is really sophiticated and elegant perfect for an evening out or a formal event.
Similiar to the 'Goddess Braids' this is a cute alternative that requires no braiding.
This chic updo is perfect for the office or an interview as it looks super professional.
I received this product a while ago at the Afro Hair & Beauty event in London back in May when the brand was giving out full size product and samples for free. I'm not going to lie to you, I haven't had much success with this product line in the past (check out my post Disappointing Hair Care & Styling Products) - so I was very anxious in trying this... However, don't look a gift horse in the mouth, right... right?
As a product junkie... I am always on the search for the new products to try, even though my product stash is overflowing. But regardless of that, when NaturalCurliesTV tagged me to do this video I was super excited for two reason; number one - it gives me a chance to feed my addiction and number two - it was my first tag!
