Whirlwind. This challenge was by far the most difficult, but also very gratifying. All I kept thinking was it’s freezing and snowing in Ohio. What am I going to do?
Jamaican Mango and Lime products are incredible. I was so excited to get so many different products. Trying out new products is probably one of my most favorite things to do! 🙂 I think my favorite is the oil (I love the smell) and the shampoo (it tingled and really made my hair feel so fresh and clean). The leave-in-conditioner was so light and didn’t weigh down my hair. It was fun, and I still have more products to try!
Look a: Funny enough, well not really funny but this picture was taken outside of a small park in Ohio. To me the moss on the rocks looked as though I could be on a lovely island, maybe Jamaica! I tried to imagine myself on a beach, not in 25 degree weather. It was freezing! Here, my hair was untwisted from a two-strand twist. I also have beads in my hair.
Look b: Here, I’m in an old warehouse. To me, Jamaica is an extraordinary place filled with colorful, jazzy people. Yet this shot made me think of some of the infrastructure in Jamaica. I have a gree and yellow ribbon loosely tied to my hand added to my black outfit – to help represent the Jamaican flag like the Jamaican Mango & Lime products.
Look c: In this shot, my hair was freshly taken out of a two-strand twist. I didn’t take much time to loosen, I like how it looks like I’ve got locs. There are beads in my hair as well. Also, if you look you can see a pot of gold! Actually, a pot of products! Wouldn’t that be nice to find in a garden? Because the weather was snowy this week, I went to a greenery to find some green space – hopefully reminiscent of greener more lovely places like Jamaica. 🙂
Look d: I like how you can really see the texture of the hair. I’m wearing bright colors and I’m sitting in a lawn chair in the greenhouse. I wanted to channel an Island look.
look e: When I think of Jamaica, I think of relaxation and fun. Here I’m in a pool room. I choose black, yellow, and green balls to give a shout out to the Jamaican flag. I’m wearing bright colors and jazzy pants because when I think of Jamaica I think of bright, beautiful, and fun. Here my hair has beads that I just used bobby-pins to help pull through strands of hair.
Look f: I wanted a neutral background for some more artistic looks. Here my hair is twisted. I like how it again looks like my hair is in locs. I’ve got the Jamaican flag colors in my swimsuit top and my skirt is so colorful. I tried to appear relaxed and like I could be on a beach. I’m actually in a sauna!
Look g: Here Is a headshot, you can see the twists. I tried to change my look. I didn’t want to do the same old lyd.
Look h: In this shot, I’m just chilling, kind of daydreaming and waiting. You can see the bigger twists and the beads that were beaded in to my hair.
Look I: In this shot, I look a little mischievous. Like, what should I get in to now? I like the shimmer/glow edits. It makes me think of an island or beach. Somewhere I’d much rather be. Here my hair is just out and my twists have been loosened.
Look J: Here, I just pinned my twists up. I used pins and completed a look that someone may rock to a beach. I like the neutral wood as it highlights the hair and Jamaican colors! Go green, black and yellow!
Again, I enjoyed checking out the products! I appreciate the opportunity to try them! I hope you enjoy these 10 shots. I tried to show a different Lydia, and connect better with my viewers.
