2018 Natural Product Haul Series: Vol 1, Soultanicals

So, my friend who gets me in retail trouble by finding all sorts of deals at various stores, called me about 2 weeks ago saying Target had haircare products on clearance.  So I like a great friend proceeded to go to 3 different Target stores to see what I could find.   The items in this series were purchased during that shopping trip.  First up, we’ll take a look at the items that I found from the Soultanicals brand.

I found 3 products that interested me, some I had seen on a few of my fave Youtuber’s videos, so I was excited to find them on deep clearance.

I’ve used all three products on my hair, which is mostly 4b, but has some 4c areas, and my son’s hair, which is definitely 4c.  My reviews on this blog will always give you reviews from both point of views.   So let’s take a deep dive into the three finds from Soultanicals.

  1. Soultanicals Knot Sauce Coil Detangler-it has Blue Malva, Broccolli Seed Oil, and Coconut Nectar. The Knot Sauce claims to melt away tangles, and can be used as a Conditioner or a Moisturizing Leave In.  I’ve seen people rinse it out, or use it as a prepoo.  We used it as a leave in.  The scent is awesome, it seems to be a light but fruity scent, not overpowering.  The consistency is thick and creamy, but it does penetrate both my hair and my son’s hair.  I used a small amount on each section of hair before it was two strand twisted on both of our hair. The product has no hold, so it didn’t impact the styler that I used later.  I would definitely buy it again, as it did what it said it would, it knocked those tangles out!

  1. Soultanicals Hair Sorrell Knappylicious Kink Drink– contains Hibiscus, Irish Moss, and Agave. Basically, this is a curl refresher, or a leave in moisturizing spray.  I love leave in conditioners in the spray form, and especially with the type of nozzle that this has.  It would be perfect for waking up an old wash and go, or retwisting your day’s old twistout.  Again I was blown away at the moisture that this provided, and once again it does what it says.  Love it.

  1. Soultanicals Can’t Believe It’s Knot Butta– with Coconut Milk and Jamaican Black Castor Oil. This product is deemed to be a hair butter, moisturizer, but states its best used as a cream styler.  I have used it as both.  It moisturizes for days, and it provides a light hold to twists/braids/coils, and gives great definition.  A little goes a long way so this small jar should last a while!

Soultanicals is a true natural ingredient company, all of the products that I’ve purchased are full of natural oils and ingredients.  So if you are into truly natural products, this one should be on your list.

Hello, and welcome to my world.  If you are reading this it’s too late, hahaha, but seriously, if you are reading this then you have stumbled onto my blog! I used to blog back in 2010 and 2011, but life got a little fast and I had to let it go.  Well I’m back, life is still fast, but my organization skills are better now.

My blog will allow you to see things through my slightly blurry vision.  I love all things fashion, beauty, and especially natural hair.  I’m also a huge Beyonce and Jay Z (Jayonce) fan! Suprisingly I was a Jay Z fan first, all the way back to Hawaiian Sophie!

So here in The Pixiecutfash Chronicles you will find information about all of that and much more.  We will be kicking off everything with a 2018 Natural Hair Haul Series.  I’ll give you reviews of some of the biggest brands in the Natural Hair world.

So stay tuned, and subscribe to the blog, so you can be on top of the posts…they will be coming fast and furious.

Oh yeah, why is the name of the blog Pixiecutfash?  I used to lhave a relaxed pixiecut, that was fierce, and I love fashion!   Now, I’m natural, and I love the name, but you can follow me on all social media by searching @pixiecutfash!

Back Again.

This time for good.  Update:  I’ve been growing my hair out for about a year now, and have been seeing great results.  I’ll post my regimen later.  I also got highlights in July and those  have grown out nicely.  I’m experiencing my first “setback” in a while,  as I’m hanging some breakage in my sensitive area, my hairline!  I bought some new products yesterday.

I say new but two of them I started my hair journey with many years ago.

ORS Replenishing CON and Silicon Mix(Dominican).  I love the smell of both and they both provide what I need moisture and shine(Silicon Mix) and light protein(ORS).  I also bought another Dominican product for additional protein(my stylist recommended protein).  Hadn’t tried this one but I have it in my hair now.

I’ll review in the coming days.

It’s funny that I started my journey in 2006 with some of these and I’m full circle back at them.   I’m hoping they may work as I have more hair than ive had in over 4 years?

I am 12 weeks post relaxer and will be 15 weeks before I get a touch up.   I’ll be protective styling.  Today it will be french braids.   These edges tho!

Follow me on Instagram @pixiecutfash for more….and updates are coming!

DIY Clip In Extensions

My friends daughter did clip in extensions that she made.  After seeing her results I figured I could do the same.  I watched a few videos on YouTube like the one here:

Afterwards I followed the steps and made my own.  I washed.and.conditioned my hair.  I used these products as leave ins:

Elasta  QP’s leave in moisturizing.spray, Chi Keratin Mist, and Redken Smooth Down Heat Glide(heat protectant).

Next, I part my hair and clip in my pieces.  The end result:

Getting a Bob…

So my hair appointment will be on Thursday.  If you have followed my inconsistent posts, my goal was to grow out my pixie cut.  I was hoping to be at full bob by Jan 2013.  I’ll be getting my bob on Thursday!!!  Can’t believe I made it. 

I’ve been letting my hair grow out without shaping since April 2012.  Mostly I’ve been protective styling with buns, braidouts, and most recently clip in extensions, more on this DIY later.

I’ve posted some pics below of my before hair, and I’ll update the blog with the reshape once it’s complete.

Enjoy.
