I get this question left, right, and centre. What products do you use in your hair to get it looking like that?
The products I use in my hair are based on 2 things
- My hair
- Current condition and needs
- The desired outcome
For instance, if I find my Afro Hair to be a bit dry after a long day in the sun sporting a twist-out, I may decide to rehydrate by adding a moisturising product (grease, oil, lotion, butter) and going through the Quick Fix to Moisture.
In another instance I may want to do a firm twist-out that will last for a few days without much change, so I may opt to use a holding product such as gel or wax.
Find your own products!
As selfish as this sounds, it’s true and will be worth it. We should all explore our own hair as they are all different.
Your kinks and coils are different to mine, as too is my diet, environment, physical activity, and all the other things affecting what the hair looks like.
My mother’s hair looks very similar to mine, however her hair is thinner and more elastic. We recently discovered that products that really hydrate my hair don’t do it for her and vice versa. So we’ve been switching products that we bought thinking that they would have worked for us lol.
Years ago I tried a honey and olive oil hair treatment that a blog swore would nourish my mane. It turned out that my hair was left coarse, dry, and less manageable at the end of the hopeful procedure. It’s great following hair blogs for tips, however it is even better to experiment at home with products to see what is best for you. Also, when deciding to follow an Afro Hair Blogger, the closer their hair-type to yours the better the chances that their recommendations work for you as well.
The Universal product?
Go forth and explore the world of products till your hair smiles. I am yet to hear an Afro Hair person dispute the goodness of Shea Butter though…Comment below and let me know
Music Producer Mike Will Made It dropped a new video for his track “23” which features Miley Cyrus, Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa paying tribute to Michael Jordan through rap, song, and fashion.
The music video is decorated with elements of the sport of basketball in a school setting. The talents wear netted hoodies, cheerleader outfits, bomber jackets, athletic sneakers with as much red, black and white as possible.
Miley Cyrus won the fashion contest in this video with several custom made pieces representing Michael Jordan, the Chicago Bulls basketball team and athleticism. She opens the video with this cropped Bulls top and high-waisted hot pants.
Are those glittered Birkenstocks? Sure enough to keep one comfortable in the smokey locker room while wearing a hot bodysuit with sunglasses on.
This look is simple and effective. Miley has heavy mascara on her lashes and a brilliant red on her lips, accentuating all the important areas for connection.
The all white nail tips appear throughout the video and actually match all the outfits. (Please don’t use white-out correction fluid to achieve this lol)
Now every girl wants a glittered basketball that matches her bikini top as seen in this silver/gray and white ensemble.
“J’s on my feet” repeats in the song and so does Jordan sneakers in the music video. Nike’s Air Jordan sneakers has been out since 1985 and is still a very coveted athletic brand.
These low harem cropped polka dot pants are interestingly paired with horizontally striped socks.
The school spirit comes out in the restroom, laboratory, basketball court, and locker room. “23″ made some good DanDan.

Transparency is quite the recurring trend. Diaphanous fabrics and mesh panels tend to have an alluring effect as they subtly reveal skin.
Sheer materials add a light breezy feel to your look and can be worn to different occasions depending on the style. Sheer pops up these days with jewel or crochet embellishments, adding personality to the translucent materials.
Mesh panels reveal skin, but not really. Mesh insets are seen in tops, dresses, skirts, and pants these days making it available for casual or even formal settings. Mesh can be quite daring at times, so buckle up.

“What underwear do I wear with this?”
When wearing transparent materials it is great to wear nude underwear, as compared to black or the colour of the material. Get a colour that is closest to your skin as possible and go out into the wild with your see through clothes!
