Here are a few quick and easy style ideas I came up with after blow drying my hair with the SLEEK ME Blowout Lotion by @lovelottabody. While blow drying my hair I couldn’t help but notice how thick my hair has gotten! 😳 This was DEFINITELY a process. #KurlsWithKia
Here is part two of Sunday’s washday routine!✌🏾📹 After I deep conditioned under the heat cap and rinsed out my hair, I applied the @cantubeautyuk Leave In Conditioning Repair Cream and then detangled slightly. I then followed up with their Coconut Curling Cream. 🗣 The white bits DO go away when the hair has dried! 🙌🏾 All were in October’s @treasuretress box. Discount code is my bio! 🌸

Mimi, Thank you. For despite what we have gone through in the last 20 months, you have displayed an immeasurable amount of strength, maturity and tenacity, taking on the arduous task of making sure that I am more than okay. Literally taking on the roles of mom, best friend, sister, cousin, aunt, shoulder to cry on, voice of reason, clown, entertainer, event planner, chef, dance instructor, housekeeper and soon licensed chauffeur. All this while excelling in school, applying to college, and dealing with the Day to day ups and downs of being in high school. Although your dad and brother have been a major part of this journey, you are in a category all by yourself... The loss of my mom and my little brother created an unfillable hole.... however your light has and continues to serve as the reconstructive matter that will make me whole again💞 #howluckyami#motherdaughter#madreehija PC @thugnanny_
Uma noiva pra mim não é apenas o simples fato de pentear e maquiar alguém. Vivo juntamente dela o sonho de criança, quando colocava um lençol branco na cabeça, e andava pela casa com os sapatos da mãe, já imaginando como seria esse momento! Amor e dedicação pra que tudo seja perfeito! E transformar esse momento único em realidade!
1 year and a half since I last shaved my hair, and here's the evidence: hair grows... albeit a lot slower than I hoped 😅
There's no magic formula or magic pill to healthy hair growth. Supplements may work for some, but honestly, nothing beats eating a healthy, protein rich diet and drinking plenty of water. Now believe me when I say, I am not the poster child for strict dieting because anyone that knows me knows that food is my weakness 😅 but eating greens and plant based proteins a lot over the past 2 months has definitely made a noticeable difference in the health of my hair and my health overall 👍🏾 My other tip is just leaving your hair alone. As you can see from my feed, since moving to Dubai, 95% of the time my hair has been in braids, twists or under a turban. Constant #protectivestyles aren't for everyone, but it's definitely saved my hair from the desert sun and constant air conditioning. Giving your hair a break and not constantly manipulating it will help you retain length without fear of breakage - just make sure you don't braid it too tight. Your edges are too precious for that mess. 👍🏾
*NOTE - I DON'T MIND EVERYONE LAUGHING AT MY THROWBACK, ITS FINE. I recovered from this unnecessary misbehave one of cousins dealt to my HAIRLINE back in February of 2011(I was 2 years and a few months in), WHICH CAUSED ME TO BIG CHOP that same week. Many have disasters but this was my second big chop 😒! But, after this......*sigh*! I vowed to embark on my hair journey where I wouldn't allow foolishness to destroy it. I ended up learning a bunch about hair in general. And gradually understood that repetition is key. I ended up understanding, in this journey you can't allow yourself to fall victim, to other people's perceptions of your hair. Because it'll bring your journey to a disaster. As you see with my hairline being brought back over 2in 😥😖.......to those who believe this journey is difficult, I really challenge you to understand that. You make it difficult depending on how simple you allow your journey to be. I'm not pressed about trends and etc. I'm only concerned about my hairs health. The term "GOOD HAIR", is just a mental construct to distract you from embracing your exceptional curls. I mean look at my page how difficult am I being with my hair, »NONE«. The less stress, the more fluent my hair can flourish. OK 👌👌👌! Remember, This is not a »»TEXTURE WAR OR FAVOURITISM OF TYPE THIS OR THAT««. Is about health and enjoying the flower 🌸 that grows from your scalp. Stay happy and not stressed.

🦋I cannot believe my mom let me out the house looking like that!!🤣🙈
I was 17 or 18 living on a small Spanish island, trying to fit in with all my white friends 🙋🏽
🦋Wavy/Curly/Kinky hair of ALL TYPES AND TEXTURES has sooooo much to give if you give it the love and attention it deserves! 👸🏿👸🏾👸🏽👸🏼👸🏻
🦋I get many DMs asking the deceptively simple question of: “How to get healthy hair?”
🦋This question is probably the hardest to answer in “generic” terms, but I’ll try my best by focusing on HEALTHY GROWTH tips for my next couple posts! 🌱💭💭💭
🦋No me puedo creer que mi mamá me dejara salir de casa así!!🤣🙈
Tenía 17/18 años viviendo en una pequeña isla española intentando no destacar entre mis amigos blancos! 🙋🏽
🦋Pelo Ondulado/Rizado/Afro de TODOS tipos y texturas tiene tanto que ofrecer si le das el amor y atención que merece!👸🏿👸🏾👸🏽👸🏼👸🏻
🦋Recibo muchos mensajes privados preguntando la engañosamente sencilla pregunta de: “Cómo consigues tener el pelo sano?”
🦋Esta pregunta es probablemente la más difícil de contestar de manera “genérica”, pero lo intentaré dedicando mis próximos publicaciones a consejos conseguir pelo SANO QUE CREZCA! 🌱💭💭💭
Receiving all your inquiries and hearing your shares brought comfort in knowing I'm not alone in my journey to amazing skin. I want to look, feel and BE my best in all areas...I was asked a lot about specifically tea tree oil and my facial cleanser. Here's a quick video on my morning and night face wash routine. I don't believe it's about ONE specific thing I'm doing but the routine as a whole.
1️⃣wash your hands (don't miss this step) can't clean your face with germs
2️⃣the oil mixture in the container is 1 part tea tree 2 parts coconut oil. Adjust to your facial needs and reactions. This helps get the dirt out.
3️⃣ you can purchase my face wash on my site candiceuntouched.com "Citrus cleanser"
4️⃣after rinsing the first wash, wash again with just the cleanser and your spinbrush
5️⃣huge step dry your face with either a paper towel or a clean UNUSED cloth.
6️⃣ Tea Tree as your toner if your acne prone to get the rest of your dirt up PLUS dry out those pimples. --------------------------------------------Private Message me with any questions. I'll love to help your needs!! #thursday#skin#skincare#sunkist#journey#smile
