Heritage by Aerist : Part Two

Clay added
I recieved these products after finding the owner on Instagram. I love clay and I love flax seed gel so I asked to try them out and she was gracious enough to send them.

 I have been in a protective style for 6 weeks and my hair WAS dirty! I detangled the shed hair after removing the beehive braid that's under the weave with organic coconut oil. After that I applied the clay in sections to the very front and the back in two big sections.  One thing I will note with the clay is I liberally applied water so that it was smoother when adding,

 6 weeks of PS'n

After keeping the clay in for 30 minutes, I then rinsed and applied the Moisturizer to my damp twists and re-twisted  after smoothing it thru the sections

Ingredients: Organic aloe vera juice, clay minerals, organic nettle, olive oil, organic honey, essential oil blend, love.

 Note: Emulsify the moisturizer until it turns clear before adding it to your hair.
Hair Rinsed

There were some sections of my hair where the Shea butter moisturizer is visible because I forgot to emulsify before adding it. After doing that step I added the FSG to each twisted section and moved on until my head was completely done. 
Ingredients: Organic shea butter, organic coconut oil, jojoba oil, castor oil, olive oil, vitamin E oil, essential oil blend, love 
Moisturizer added

I think this line is going to be a winner. Its simple and not hard at all to do. I also have to say, I DID NOT condition my hair after using the clay, I went straight to the moisturizer step. Usually after wearing my hair in such a long protective style I would deep condition for a long time but honestly, I wanted to try the product out sans deep conditioning and two, I was lazy, it is Sunday after all , lol.
Ingredients: Purified water, organic flax seeds, castor oil, vitamin E oil, essential oil blend, love.

FSG added

Currently my hair is drying and I will update this post in 24 hours after its fully dried.

Blog: Under construction

Hello , If you've noticed the blog has went under a little construction. Some of the links aren't accessible as of yet. I am playing around with HTML trying to figure out how to do little updates to the page myself, so please bear with me as I get it together.  I might even change it to something else but I'm just poking around, getting my feet wet.

Thank you for your patience
