"A Tangled Curl We Weave!" - Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie Review Part I
So anyone that knows me, knows that I love being myself. And myself ADORES creativity. So instead of slapping your curls with a straightforward product review, I thought I'd turn my own experiences with one of my favorite products into a 3 part tale. I hope you enjoy & remember: There's 2 sides to every Frizz! ~ Natural Dancer
The alarm sang from the cell phone with its usual reckless abandon & disregard for a decent night's rest. Possibly, the belligerent attitude of the device arose from having to sound earlier & work harder to wake Sleeping Curly from her snoring, dribbling slumber.
An extra 20 minutes. 20 whole minutes because SC didn't know how her noggin was going to greet her when she finally joined the land of the alert. Were her frizzies going to play nice? Or would they act like they didn't even know her?
She KNEW better than to try a wash & go so late at night, but after yet ANOTHER failed twist out attempt, she had no choice. It was the quick, all-drying, pay-for-it-later wash & go pieced together with a pot luck of products pilfered from the Dungeon Product-Junkie, where spent dollars retired to waste their last days. After all, it wasn't like she had magic hands skilled at whipping up a glorious natural 'do in a pillow's throw like so many other beauties she admired. Nope. Not even CLOSE. In fact, she only had two styles hastily tucked away in her arsenal: Beat or Beat Down.
She never even looked at it.
Sitting upright (following three bouts with the snooze feature), she tried the "shake" test first, furiously sending her head back & forth. Stiff as overcooked chicken. The touch test administered next left her delicate palm feeling like she had a papercut - without the paper.
UUUgghhhh!!!! What was she going to do? If she was late to her 9-5, that would be her head. But checking the mirror....it WAS her head!
The diva never even pondered using her strand's eventual saving grace even though it was staring her in the face from the back of the shelf all along....Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie.
When would that child learn?
To be continued.......
