Cornrow's Off to the Side in a Free Hanging Ponytail with Beads

The Unveiling of the MYSTERY Style...

Drum Roll Please!!!!!................................

This is the first style like this i have attempted so i am VERY proud because it turned out just gorgeous and Diva R is in LOVE with this "princess" style as she calls it. I used these products, tools and accessories...

The Bee Mine Luscious Balanced Cream Moisturizer was applied to her hair followed by the Bee Mine Bee Hold Curly Butter Then i started cornrowing away towards the left side of her head to give it the pony tail styled look without using a pony tail holder :) The Olive Oil Sheen Spray i use lightly right after i complete the style to "Lock-in" the moisturizer and curly butter. This gives her hair such a lovely non-oily looking shine that doesn't clog her hair follicles. The beads we used were the small pony beads :) This style took about 4 hours. I am projecting this style to last at most 4 days with few touch ups as we go.

Also, while her hair is in a style i still moisturize it and about 3 days into the style period i will rinse her hair but not wash it until i take her style down.  I am currently awaiting my lovely Bee Mine Juicy Moisturizing Daily Spritz (THIS IS THE BEST EVER) and some Bee Mine No Sulfur Growth Serum in Mango scent to try on Diva R's hair :)

Going to leave this in for a few days and then ill be back to the drawing board to figure out the next mystery style :) and i am preparing spotlights for fellow hair blogs....

Happy Creating!

Get Beautiful Curly Hair Without Using Damaging Straightening Irons

It’s easy to forget important items when we travel; toothbrush, dress maybe even a travel adapter. Without being able to plug in your favourite hair straighteners or curlers you’ll soon find yourself facing a holiday without the gorgeous hair you had imagined. Fortunately with Curlformers this holiday dilemma is no longer a problem because electricity is not required!
The simplicity and effectiveness of Curlformers make this curly hair tool a perfect travel companion. The holdall, containing the coloured twisted mesh tubes can be squeezed into your suitcase – they never lose their shape – and can be used wherever you are. Just apply your Curlformers to damp hair and it won’t be long until you have beautiful curly hair or loose glamorous waves.

Curlformers can be used on all hair types and lengths. This particular styling kit will allow you to create some impressive short curly hair styles and rock chic curls with ease.  Girls often find it difficult to add curls to their short hair, especially when they use straightening irons, and often end up burning themselves in the process!  However using the specially designed Curlformers Styling Kit and Styling Hook for short hair you’ll be able to create frizz-free and bouncy curls.
Within your kit you will find Curlformers in two different colours.  One will curl hair in a clockwise manner and the other anti-clockwise allowing you to create a natural and free flowing look.  Easy to apply yourself, you can ask your friends to help when you try out your Curlformers and create some gorgeous curly hairstyles together.

You will get the best results from your Curlformers when you use them on damp hair. For soft but long-lasting curls you will need to leave your Curlformers in for as long as you can. Speed the process up using a hair dryer, a soft hood attachment will help - along with some mousse for hold and thermal protective spray.

* The other two sizes will be available soon to begin entering for * As of right now just the short and narrow sets are up for competition :)

Today's Curlee Style: Flexi-Rods+Results + SNEAK PEEK of Tuesdays Style

OK OK OK :) I have finally touched ground with my computer again! I feel like a life line has been taken away when my computer has issues. Now all is good for at least a few days. Lap tops go through power cords and batteries like children do toys...

Any who,
We used 10 flexi-rods this time around and let me tell you, the first time we tried the flexi-rods we bought the smaller in diameter rods.

This was the first time we tried the flexi-rods...

This time around we began with washing her hair with Organix Shea Butter Shampoo followed by Organix Coconut Milk Conditioner. I squeeze dried her hair slightly but i never over dry it so that when i put the Bee Mine Luscious Balanced Cream Moisturizer in right after the squeeze dry, it allows for her hair to soak in the Water and Moisturizer before i put in the final product the Bee Mine Bee Hold Curly Butter, which seals the water and Bee Mine Luscious Balanced Cream Moisturizer into her hair creating the natural shine, softness, growth and health of Diva R's Curlees.

These are the before products picture(1st pic), and after Bee Mine Product application pictures (2nd and 3rd pic).

I have really noticed growth on her hair since we began using the Bee Mine Products, they are just beyond amazing and Divas Curls are the healthiest ever resulting from daily usage for 2 months and counting :) 
As far as the 1st attempt on the rods is concerned it didn't go well nor did the subsequent 3 after that. It was evident quickly that Diva R's hair just does not hold these rods in her hair or that these are too small and mimic her own curl type causing no difference. I decided to give the flexi-rods another whirl but this time i bought the BIG flexi-rods.These were $3.99 for 5. I have used a variety of products to try and help get her hair to hold the rods in. I have tried twisting the rods in many different styles and none of them will hold her hair still it just unravels near instantly. I resorted to rubber-banding the bottoms of her hair to the rods.

I put those plastic red hair clips on the tops of the flexi-rods in attempt to hold them together at least over night. ($1.29 each pair, i got from a local wig shop) These are sort of shaped like an alligator mouth and are the best clips i have found yet for holding Diva R's finer textured hair in place while i braid just not flexi rods.

I then tried to rubber-band the flexi-rods together in sections at the top of her head to hold them since the rods were slightly too thick for the clips to hold snugly.  I believe these are too heavy for her hair type.

Within an hours time the rods were hanging down her back...

The results turned out rather adorable despite the rods being fickle and Diva was pleased :) ALSO the mystery preview is in the picture below to the right :) Can you guess what type of style we will be doing? I will give you a HINT... &lt;It will take ALL DAY LONG> *_*

Her delight and joyous expressions are my motivation and hair time is our time :) .She loves to help me pick out all style accessories, color themes, she LOVES to string the beaders when i am beading, outfits and accessories to match her hair accessories she also has choice in and we like to experiment with versatile hairstyles that i can change up within a 4-6 day time period so i can turn one hair style into 4 in one weeks time saving hours of time :)

SNEAK PEEK! What type of style do you think im doing for Tuesday? Comment Please.

Sidewinders, Pony Tails and a Braid...+ SHOUT OUTS!

Today i decided at the last minute to do her hair for the Auto Show SOOO with only an hour in hand to do her hair i came up with something freestlyish and quick. I was going to do a veil style going up but wanted to use the Sidewinder Hairholders and because Diva R's hair is slightly on the shorter side with her springy curls :) 

I applied her Bee Mine Dejas Hair Milk from root to tips, then generously finger combed some Bee Mine Luscious Balanced Cream Moisturizer on the last 6 inches of her hair and went with 4 pulled back parted pony tails with matching ponies webbed out into a webbed pattern using brown and clear Sidewinders intertwined flowing down into one medium sized braid. I left some hair free flowing and just added a little Bee Mine Curly Butter to liven up her curls and give slight hold :)

The pictures aren't the best of quality, at the time i discovered at the last second also that my camera wasn't charged! So i had to resort to the Blackberry....

(notice the little "baby hair" Diva has on the front of her hairline! She has always had these and they don't seem like they want to grow out...These make most styles difficult due to the length.) 

But they give her such a beautiful face frame at the same time *_*.

Just a simple elegant looking style in an hours time... This was the first time we used the Sidewinders so i don't have the hang of them yet. A little tricky but there are instructional videos to learn how to put the sidewinders in on their website.

Post style update: This style of course has to be taken down in the morning because it is totally not the type of style that can be maintained :)

Last but not least i have to give an EXCITED humbling SHOUT OUT to my 3 followers!!!!!

Braid Out Results from Yarn Rows...

Braid Out anyone??

Here are Diva R's braid out results from the yarn rows... Now no matter how "cleanly" i undo her braids to form the braid out pattern i do not get the result i hope for.  Her hair is thicker at the ends than on her scalp, so when i undo her braids her hair naturally goes into a flat fro if that makes any sense. The results are similar to her natural curls just a little kinkier.  

It is very hard to keep her hair moisturized when she has the yarn in, so i found myself lightly spraying her hair with distilled water following up with Bee Mine Luscious Balanced cream Moisturizer, (the spritz type that Bee Mine sells would be SOOOOO much better but i have yet to buy it :) and when you moisturize yarn braids the trick is to NOT over moisten, especially if you plan on keeping them in for a while, because the yarn will stink and build up will accrue.  We cant leave any type of hair style in Diva R's hair any longer than a few days anyways.

HERE IT IS :)...

HMM what should i do next? More to come...

Yarn Row Extensions- The Second Time Around

Well, i decided to do yarn braids for the second time now, and this time i did them in corn rows versus single box braids like last time.  I used multi colored acrylic yarn that i bought from Walmart for 2.00 each roll :) 

I washed her hair with Kids Organics olive oil and Shea butter shampoo followed by Organix Coconut Milk Conditioner.

Here is the style half way done :)

I used 4-5 24inch strands of yarn per "Yarn Row"
Here is the complete doo :)

I used Bee Mine Luscious Balanced Cream Moisturizer pre yarn rowing followed by Bee Mine Curly Butter as i began yarn rowing. All in all this style took an hour and a half with two breaks. Diva R loves yarn braids officially so i told her we can keep them in for as long as they will stay :) Usually we don't keep hair styles in longer than four days due to frizziness.  

Tomorrow will be a braid out :) Will post pics...
