A lot of us have preconceived notions about what our hair can and can not do. With my 4C natural hair, I had given up all hope on ever getting my hair to have a silky appearance without the use of chemicals or extreme heat. But Jamia of Natural Oasis, slayed all my nightmares and scary dreams giving breath to new life with my hair. After Michelle interviewed Jamia on her product line, I reached out to her since we are both in the DC area. I was itching to cut my hair and she did that on the fly for me. Then we set a date for her style my hair and well what a night it was.
You can find all the details on the Natural Oasis product line in the previous post by Michelle. Natural Oasis was the only products used in my hair and the results were dronetastic, eff a bomb we’ve moved into the new decade with drone-tastic hair. Out of this world.
First my hair was shampooed with the Natural Oasis Fruit Herbs & Flowers ACV Rinse. Then we did a no rinse deep conditioner, that left me with my face screwed up as we used my Q-Redew to steam the Honey Creme Balm into my hair and then DID NOT rinse it out. Like how that work? That’s it? We not finna seal? Nope on to setting my hair with various size perm rods and flexi rods in the front of my hair, only using the Fruit, Herbs & Flowers Setting Lotion. Partial let my hair air dry as I cooked dinner and then sat under the dryer for about an hour. Jamia set the curls in the small side since I wanted it to last for at least 3 days — and it ended up lasting more than a week!
I simply slept with a satin bonnet, and I reset the curls in the front twice, with smaller perm rods. That was it. I didn’t apply any extra product. The key is really in how Jamia wraps the hair around the curler and then me keeping my hands out of my hair! Wish I could have her do my hair every week.
