For my Curlfriends: I've got a lot of questions recently about my rod sets so I wanted to answer them here. These are the products and techniques that work best for me to achieve easy results each time: (1) Before I rod set my hair, I always clarify to remove any excess buildup. This is essential for ensuring weightless, shiny curls. I like to use ORS Creamy aloe and follow up with KeraCare Hydrating Detangling Shampoo. (2) Deep conditioning and dealing the hair shaft is key. For hair like mine that is natural, I need to make sure the hair is as smooth and tangle free as possible. So that once the rods are removed the hair is smooth and shiny. For this I like to use Silicon Mix. This stuff is crack for dry, thirsty hair and makes for one heck of a wet set. FYI this does have silicon and other hard to pronounce ingredients however I have not had any adverse reactions & my hair seems to respond very well hence the 2lb tub! (3) Use a leightweight leave-in. Lacio Lacio is my leave in of choice because it's practically weightless but does it's job in the moisture department. Again, I prefer more weightless products for doing wash and sets because my hair lasts longer, has more body and sheen. (4) Before I roll each section of hair, I saturate it with warm water. I keep a spray bottle near me. (5) I use Setting Lotion instead of gels, puddings or butters. I find this gives me more sheen, softness and the hair is much smoother versus a textured crinkle. (6) If you like a curl pattern more similar to a curling wand, start the rod from the root, then wrap the hair around the wand like you would a curling wand. (7) And the most important, let the hair dry completely!!!! If you have a hooded dryer, I would recommend that, as the heat works well in conjunction with the products I've mentioned. I have a Pibbs 514 and it took about a little over and hour to dry. (8) I prefer my curls somewhat messy like the last pic I uploaded, so once I remove the rods, I brush through the hair with a large paddle brush and finger style. Don't be timid when brushing, it helps separate the curls, add elongation and helps it look a bit more natural. HTH!

Tonight's Dinner || Surprisingly, the star of the show were the Brussels Sprouts. Made Ina Garten's recipe for roasted Brussels Sprouts & fell in love! Mix 1 pound of sprouts with 3 tablespoons of Olive Oil, 3/4tsp of Kosher Salt & 1/2tsp of Ground Black Pepper. Mix well and place the sprouts on a sheet pan & in the oven at 400 degrees. Shake the pan every 5-7 mins so the sprouts brown evenly. Enjoy!
_foxy_ale : I need cooking lessons hun
nikstarr : ETA: Cook for 40minutes
nikstarr : @_foxy_ale @beautiful1too Haha No problem! We need to have a ladies night in!
beautiful1too : A night in for sure & the lesson tell me when the classes start!
missfoodiefab : Yummmm!
theminniemaven : Yasss- roasted veggies are so good!
mellanin : Sprouts pair well with some pomegranate sprinkled on top of them when they're done.
