hair stuff! naturallycurly.com’s Curlarita: a review

(note:  this will be a very long post about natural hair products.  if you have no interest, or are a bit ADD, or are baldheaded, or are rocking a house of dereon lacefront (not hatin, just sayin), you may wanna abandon ship.)

since this blog isn’t about me, i haven’t said much about my holidays.  they were great.  i ate a lot of food, hugged lots of folks, did a lot of badly needed cleaning, and got some great gifts.  one of those gifts was, like, the greatest gift i’ve ever gotten given my current obsession with hair products after going natural almost two years ago  (i suck at this hair typing thing, but i’ve decided that my hair is at least closest to 3C, for the record).

one of my favorite websites to e-window shop is Curl Mart at NaturallyCurly.com.  jokingly, i sent the wishlist  made there to a couple of people.  on that wishlist was a couple of things i needed, like a new bottle of DevaCurl’s No-Poo and a Denman brush since i lost mine while ago.  also on the list:  NC’s hyper expensive Curlarita, a product kit tailored for 3C hair (they make these kits, called curly cocktails, for all hair types).  it’s like $70.  crazy, right?  right.  i ask for ridiculously priced stuff all the time, but i never expect to get any of it.  so when i woke up Christmas morning and found that my mom had bought me every single item on that wishlist??!!  i put my head inside the box it all came in and screamed for half a minute.  that is by no means an exaggeration.

since i’m broke these days, i haven’t had any chances to splurge on any new products to review.  when i got this stuff i immediately wanted to run to wash my hair so i could try it out, but since it was Christmas and people would be in my house looking at me within a few hours, i had already washed, conditioned, and detangled the night before.  so i had to wait until it was time to shampoo again (i use a sulfate shampoo about once a week), and then i decided i’d wait another week after putting the new stuff in my hair to do some good observing and see how it performs.  it has been almost 1 week exactly.  reviews commence now!

the booty! (santa's booty not included)
