  • ✨Protein/Moisture Balance ✨

MOISTURE OVERLOAD:
- soft, gummy, mushy (or sticky!)
- lots of wet frizz
- curls falling flat easily
- hair strand stretches A LOT before it snaps
- inability to get or maintain a cast .

HOW TO RECOVER:
- Clarify
- Add some protein to your routine. Check your products and where it lands in the ingredient list (random fact - ingredients are listed in order of how much is in the product from most to least!)
- OR try a protein treatment (ie rice water rinse) .

PROTEIN OVERLOAD:
- lacking shine
- frizzy, stringy, dry and tangles easily
- hair does not stretch far and snaps quickly .

HOW TO RECOVER:
- Clarify
-  follow up with a deep conditioning treatment (bonus points if you leave it on and apply some heat to help penetrate the hair shaft)
- try protein free products or dial back on protein treatments

BALANCE: I can only tell you what works for me (as everyone is different), but I tend to retain a strong balance by adding a few drops of neutral protein filler to my deep conditioning (DC) treatment. I do this once a week because I have hard water and need to clarify once a week. My clarifying shampoo is ALWAYS followed by a DC treatment, otherwise it becomes dry and lifeless.

*Please note this is not a one-size fits all! Everyone’s hair reacts differently to products and treatments. If you’re new to CGM and still going through transition, please note you are going to experience some of these “symptoms” naturally as your waves and curls continue to heal and revitalize. Keep experimenting!

  • To my best friend in the world. I cannot explain in words how proud I am of you. You push me to be a better person every day, no one (and I can’t stress this enough) makes me laugh more, you are intelligent, kind, sassy, loving, and beautiful from the inside out. Your smile makes my day and knowing I have you fills my life with the most pure and perfect joy. You have endless opportunity ahead of you and I can’t wait to see how you take the world by storm. YOU ARE EVERYTHING TO ME, my best friend, my soulmate 💛 I Love you so friken much. Happy 16th Jess Jess

  • Po wczorajszym spacerze 😁 dzisiejsza pogoda wręcz rozpieszcza... 😍☀️ my w końcu pożegnaliśmy definitywnie chorobę i możemy spacerować. Gdyby tylko jeszcze bez żadnego ale Zuzia dała się ubierać 😂 czemu dzieci tak nie lubią tej czynności? Dziś była obrażona cały spacer za opaskę na uszach 🙄 ah te kobiety 😂
Dodatkowo dodam, że bez odpowiednich produktów niestety ale próbowałam wyciągnąć z moich włosów jakiś skręt... powiem Wam że czuje w nich potencjał! Będą piękne! 
A jak Wy spędzacie ten ciepły weekend? ☀️❤️

  • Really feeling this lately...(as I ironically sit here watching my mixed henna dye release...) I’ve “artificially” styled my hair most of my life and often wondered how much better at math I’d be if I’d have just gone au naturel instead. 😂 but also 😩🤦‍♀️ inside. 
Moving forward, may we embrace our natural selves and focus on more important things in life (more of the time!) 💜

  • This princess wanted me to take this ice so bad 😳! I just wanted to see her smile 😂⁣ We were twinning with our two piece sets💕💚
⁣
I love when families bring their babies like @berryunique_london to #Curlfest and expose them to this kind of representation from a young age. Being able to see women and men embracing their natural selves in an environment where they are laughing, learning, and having fun is POWERFUL! I cannot wait to bring my babies out here when that time comes✨💕 ⁣
