As a contestant of America’s Next Natural Model Season 5, Lydia tried to see how the Going Natural Hair care products would work for her Fro-Hawk, one of her favorite natural hairstyles. Here is her experience.
I used the light Curl Keeper Herbal Styling Gel and a modified version of the shingling method to define my curls. This product worked great! I went natural in 2009 and I have NEVER been able to get the tight, defined curls that I need for a fro-hawk. I always see pictures of fro-hawks at the beauty store and I’m like ‘man! I wish I could do that with my hair!’ I am absolutely thrilled that after FOUR years I have found a product that allows me to create a fro-hawk! This product did the trick!
- Wet hair using a spray bottle. You want your hair to be thoroughly wet from root to tip. Gently comb your hair out to make sure that there are no knots or tangles. Apply a bit of GN.com shea butter to help detangle your hair.
- Apply a golf ball sized amount of GN.com light Curl Keeper. Work the product into your hair with your hands. Be sure that the product is applied evenly throughout your hair from root to tip.
- Wet your hair again. You don’t want to add too much more water. Three or four more squirts should do.
- Section your hair into four sections but part off a section at the nape of the neck. This section should be about one inch thick. Comb the product through your hair using a rat tail comb. Continue to comb through your hair section by section until all sections are complete.
- Smoothen the shafts of your hair by running small sections of your hair through your index and middle finger.
- Allow hair to dry. You may want to sit under a dryer. I don’t have a dryer so I allowed my hair to air dry.
- To loosen your curls, pull out individual sections of your hair and blow them with a blow dryer using the nozzle attachment. I wanted to keep my curls relatively tight for the fro-hawk so I only loosened the front of my hair.
- Apply GN.com herbal styling gel to edges.
- Brush edges up and pin hair back about an inch and a half on each side.
- Style fro-hawk as desired. I pulled the front of my fro-hawk a bit to the left.
