So, as I mentioned in a previous post that I would, I went back to Pressed Roots (the salon where I recently got a silk press and trim), and I took a photo of the FIRST brush they used to detangle my hair. I did this because the SECOND brush they used just so happened to be my HOLY GRAIL detangling brush, and I was so impressed by that 😛 that I began wondering about the FIRST brush they used. It must also be awesome, right???
Aside: If you want to just find yourself smiling “out loud,” read through a bunch of the positive Amazon reviews of my holy grail brush, the Flexy Brush. I mean, this brush literally brings joy, LOL: the reviews.
Here is a photo of the SECOND brush used at the salon:
Based on the salon photo of the SECOND brush, I think I found it on Amazon! I ordered it, it has arrived (please see the pink brush below), and in a week or so once I’m done wearing my silk press, I intend to trial it at detangling my coily, kinky hair.
While I was at it, I also purchased another brush that was hanging around on my Amazon page looking similar to the Flexy Brush and the second salon brush.
I think I figured out the SECRET to what makes the Flexy Brush work: The EXTREME flexibility of the bristles. I ran my finger along the bristles of all 3 brushes, and there was a difference: The other two brushes both have STIFFER bristles than does my holy grail Flexy Brush. Hmm. I think that’s going to matter!
Below is how the brushes compare in SIZE to the Curly Solutions Flexy Brush. The ONLY problem I have with the Flexy Brush is that it’s a little unwieldy in my hands. I’m wondering if one of the other brushes will perform the same or better yet be easier to hold and handle. We’ll see. I’m already kind of doubting that performance will be better or the same, based on the stiffer bristles issue.
I also ordered a shower mirror (pictured below) that a YouTuber recommended (I can’t remember who). I am concerned that it will “uglify” our shower. Amazon reviews are stellar, but the mirror is reportedly super hard to (safely) remove.
This brand has at least 2 shower mirrors, and the later version (the thinner one) does not get as stellar reviews as their older, thicker shower mirror does. Here is a link to the mirror, where you’d have to be careful to order the particular version that you want: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003BQ6QXK/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Recent At-Home Wash-and-Go’s
Below are photos of some recent at-home wash-and-go’s I’ve done. The first one was achieved using the Alikay Naturals stylers pictured below. It only lasted 2.5 days. The second one was achieved using Ecoslay. I think I finally washed it out on day 8.
I’ve been drafting a post sharing my thoughts on the whole “no oils, no butters” movement that is currently popular on social media in the hair community. If you have any thoughts or questions or comments to share about it, please feel free to comment below. As soon as I get my thoughts together about it, I’ll post. 😉
As always, thank you for visiting the blog. 😀 Many blessings to you and yours!
Until next time,
