FRO

PRICE: $9

Every natural girl needs a good Leave-In Conditioner; this one is mine. It's lightweight, smells lovely, and makes tangles melt out of my strands with ease.  

PRICE: $13

I love all things Shea Moisture, but love is an understatement for this one. It leaves my hair super soft and manageable. I leave it on for 30 minutes and my hair is ready to bounce back from all the stress, color or heat of the week.  

PRICE: $7

This gel has been a part of my hair regimen for years. Twist outs, braid outs, flexi rods, perm rods...any time I need hold, I reach for this. Every style I do with this gel lasts for at least 4 days. Eco Styler comes in various colors, but  green is my favorite. The pink version doesn't mix well with other products (leaves a white residue) and has a different consistency. 

PRICE: $6 Per pack

Step away from the curling wand and pick up a Flexi Rod. Your hair will thank you. Rods come in a variety of lengths and widths to create your ideal curl or wave pattern.

PRICE: $8

Because of my darker complexion, I've had a hard time finding foundations in drugstores. I love this L'oreal line because it categorizes according to shade and undertone. It's lightweight, builds nicely, and gives great coverage. I can wear this without concealer and not have to worry about dark spots. 

I'm also a fan of Maybelline's dream matte mousse & liquid mousse. if you're my complexion, you'd be Coca Dark 3. 

PRICE: $40

I reach for this palette whenever I want to highlight, contour, or conceal. I've had this in my beauty kit for about a year and I'm just starting to reach the bottom. I love how long it lasts, so it's definitely worth the investment. 

PRICE: $46

This Bronze Shimmer Brick from Bobbi Brown delivers the perfect Summer glow. It's a bit pricey, but it's definitely worth it. I've had it for months now, but it still looks new because a little goes a long way. Each individual color gives a gorgeous sheen. I use this for my highlight and it doubles as an eye shadow palette. 

I used all of the mentioned cosmetics for this look.

FRO: I did a braid out on stretched hair with As I Am Leave In Conditioner and used Eco Styling Gel for hold. I did a total of 10 braids and put Flexi Rods at each end.

GLOW: All of the cosmetics pictured were used for this look.
