Clever Hair Curling Hack Saves You Hundreds of Dollars! What Natural Hair Gal Will Test This?!

Let’s face it: Getting ready in the morning is not only a hassle, it’s a pain. When you have to curl your hair? Forget being on time – or having a good hair do. This is because, despite all of the accessories out there, few do a good job. Why are you wasting all of that money on worthless products, when the result is always the same?

Today, a clever hair curling hack saves you hundreds of dollars and uses nothing more than common items you probably have in your house right now. It’s the water bottle hair curling hack. This hack is going viral because it is so easy to do and the results speak for themselves.

A post shared by Huda Kattan (@hudabeauty) on

Rather than spend tons of money on Dyson’s product, try this hair curling hack instead. The only question is does it work on natural hair? Your hair would have to be stretched to try this but who’s going to be the first curly haired girl to test it out? I would love to see a natural do this especially since they are demoing the $500 Dyson curler wand. Which in my opinion is just a little bit too steep for my pockets.

The Steps to the Viral Hair Curling Hack

To shape your hair into natural, loose hanging curls, get a plastic water bottle and a blow dryer. You should cut one end of the water bottle off so that you can put your hair down into the bottle. You should also make an incision halfway down the bottle in order to put your hair dryer there. When you turn on the blow dryer, this will cause the hair to spin around rapidly, giving it the nice, natural curls that the Dyson product creates.

 

Endorsed by beauty blogger Huda Kattan, this method is a cost-effective and time-saving way of getting those awesome, loose beach curls that people love. And you save over $500 bucks when you do it this way. At a price of about $530, the Dyson curler is going to set you back a lot. A water bottle? About $1.59.

For her part, Huda Kattan was really impressed with the results and her audience agreed, many of them promising to try it out when they had the opportunity. One thing that Huda did warn about, however, was the build up of heat inside of the bottle can burn you if you’re not careful. She recommends wearing some kind of glove to protect against burns. Further, some people have pointed out that the plastic can melt after too much exposure to heat so you might have to replace your water bottle after a few uses.

But the results speak for themselves: Long, luscious curls, all without any real effort on the part of the stylist.

If you love natural looking hair styles and can’t imagine buying another product to achieve something that is supposed to happen anyway, then this hair curling hack is for you.

The water bottle hair curling hack going viral is not only a time saver, but actually works as well.

If you’re looking to save hundreds of dollars and have perfectly curled hair every time, all you need are some empty water bottles, scissors, and a hair dryer. Give it a shot and let us know about your results in the comments.

Length Check, Giveaway Winners, the Tea on Where We’ve Been, and More!

Where Has Chic LadyT Been?!

I know we went missing, so I thought I’d finally make a video on what happened. Chic Lady T put an event on in October and had to turn around and get ready for a Young Black Leadership Summit-YBLS right after. This was further complicated when I and the other attendees received an invitation to the white house from the president. So we were swamped with getting ready for all these things.

In the next series of videos, I will be spilling the tea on the Young Black Leadership Summit, Turning Point USA, and YouTuber Candace Owens. This channel will probably move in the direction of tea sipping on mainstream stories about blacks. TBH, I am reluctant to give any air time to the YBLS and the peoples involved because to me these political people are weirdos. And any attention, even negative attention, is good attention. But as I was personally there I will be putting in my two cents. Other than that I could care less. I am not interested in politics. I am straight up disgusted.

Change of Direction for Chic LadyT?

This video will also be speaking on ideas for the direction of this channel. We care about the black community so Chic LadyT would like to focus on our issues and black empowerment. That’s in addition to gossip and trending headlines. There would still be hair videos but they won’t be the main focus.

As for my hair, I do a quick length check in this video. After making this video, I trimmed off inches so it can be healthy. I want to cut it all off but I’m not that brave yet. We’ll see.

Congratulations to the giveaway winners! Please inbox us.

A Slim Countess Vaughn is Bald like Tamar Braxton, Big Chop Trend?

Big chop videos are always fun to watch. And for those of you who needed a little inspiration or a push to go for it, I think this just might be it. A slim Countess Vaughn from the Parkers is bald like Tamar Braxton! Is this becoming a big chop trend? Maybe these ladies were inspired by Wakanda. Press play above to find out my thoughts on the matter.

Quick Announcement,

Spring is in the air and I thought I’d share some discounts with you all. Kenneth Cole is having a big sale on their website KennethCole.com. In addition to the discounts they are already offering, take an extra 20% off when you use my link. Make sure you type in Promo Code: SHOP20. You get 20% off sitewide and free shipping on orders of $100 plus.

We use affiliate links. Here is our Full Disclosure.

Say Whaat?!

Instead of weaves and wigs, stars like Tamar Braxton and Countess Vaughn are now wearing their natural hair/bald heads! Countess Vaughn posted a picture of her on her Instagram without her wig and her comment section was on fire. Some showing hate. but there were many that also showed this sister some love. People were surprised no doubt, but this isn’t the first time she rocked the bald look. She has been speaking out about the problems of wigs and weaves for a long time. She has been vocal about how they made her loose all of her hair and caused a scalp infection. I say good for her! She looks great especially the color.

Maybe she was inspired to rock her bald head by Tamar who recently shocked all of social media with her big chop. And because I love Tamar, I’ve included a clip of a video that I attempted to make a about it.

My Verdict

All in all I find this to be a good thing, when these sistas with such huge influence are inspiring other black women to rock their natural hair. If you watched my last video, Who did this?! Weaves and Wigs cause balding natural hair transformations you will see the kind of damage that can be done with these air quotes “protective styles”. Once again, disclaimer I am not against wearing Weaves and Wigs but I am against unhealthy practices that some use such as gluing the install. If you can’t get away from the glue, then wear box braids or your own hair like these ladies. Looks like this is becoming the trend! What do you think? Is this a good thing that these women are doing this despite some of the backlash? Would you rock a bald head?

Giveaway Winner!!

Ok, so I didn’t forget about you guys and it’s time to announce the winners of this month giveaway. We actually have two. Watch the end of the video to find out who you are. The winners can contact us here or at the email listed on our YouTube Channel. After we verify it’s you, you will receive your cash prize. For everyone else. We do this every month so stay tuned.

Update:

Upon making this this video Countess Vaughn took one of the photos down.

Who Said Black Hair Don’t Grow? Black Beauty Hair is Past Her Bum!

I hear it often when I go out. My white friends are curious as to how I grew my natural hair so long. They initially think my hair is weave but once I show them it isn’t they then ask me a host of questions. Like, how is it that my hair is long when most black women they see have very short or fake hair?

Now, many of my white friends have good intentions so no shade here. It’s just that They believe that because of the few black women they see have short or fake hair that African/Black hair don’t grow.

I then explain to them that “hair growth” is completely different from “length retention”. Some blacks use products and techniques that don’t work for their hair and break it off at a faster rate than it grows. If black hair didn’t grow they would never have to do touch ups on color or perms. I mean think about it, how come your nails are short? Is it because they don’t grow? No, it’s because they break. Once blacks receive the proper education on how to care for their hair and start using the correct products, their hair flourishes. As prime example with this black beauty.

It’s time for this week’s spotlight on those beauty guru’s who are shinning out there and today I want to show some love to a sister who locks are worth noticing and to the stylist who silk pressed it. The black beauty’s hair is to her bum. Her hair long, beautiful and healthy. She clearly has been taking care of it. Press play on the video above to see for yourself.

P.S.
For you Chic Ladies and Gents looking for stuff that will help grow your hair:
Biotin Oil Drops:

Chebe Powder

You can purchase via those links.

Or to get your silk press like mine or the black beauty, the CHI will do it:

How I Silk Press my Long Natural Hair

I finally got around to Posting a video demonstrating how I silk press my long natural hair. Click on the link above to check it out.

I confess. I am the one who used to binge watch curly to straight natural hair routines on YouTube. (I say used to because my busy schedule does not afford me the luxury to do that anymore 😢). I enjoyed watching the beauty guru’s natural hair go from being shriveled up to super long. I would wait for the anticipated end results to see where their length is at. You never know who’s rocking long natural hair until they stretch it out. I’m telling you that the shrinkage is real. Many sisters have long hair and you wouldn’t know it. Either it’s hidden under wigs or it’s shrunken up in its natural state.

Most women go to the salon to get this look but I learned how to do it myself. It took much trial and error. The end result wasn’t always silky, shiny, and bouncy. And when it was, I couldn’t seem to repeat the outcome. Nonetheless, I have finally figured it out and have it down to a science. I decided to share my process with you in this tutorial. There is one disclaimer though: the video is outdated. I have perfected my silk press technique even more! But I still wanted to share this video with you anyway. I hope you enjoy. Thanks!

What Women are Putting on their Scalp for Natural Hair Growth Hack Will Surprise You

Many of my subscribers have asked me if this particular hair growth hack works. So, I decided to make a video on it. Check out the video below to find out “What Women are Putting on their Scalp for Natural Hair Growth Will Surprise You.”

Sometimes we naturals will try anything to grow our hair. I remember a few years back, women were using Monostat on their scalp to stimulate hair growth. I’m not going to lie, the videos were convincing and had me tempted but I got creeped out. After that, there was the inversion method. A technique where you held your head upside down for 5 minutes. I did try this method and achieved hair growth. Maybe I will make a video on it. This time women are using Vick’s Vapor Rub on the scalp to hijack hair growth. [dead silence] Are we going too far with this? Will this work? Is this weird? In the video, I let you in on the details.

When I first discovered this technique from the YouTuber, Sonyabeonit, I wasn’t surprised. After doing some research, you can see why this works. Vick’s Vapor Rub contains ingredients in it that stimulate growth. She was spot on for coming up with this idea. Unlike other “hair growth hacks” floating around that don’t work, like aloe vera, this one is a winner.

So the verdict on this hair growth hack,

I suggest trying this method. The step by step instructions on how to apply Vick’s Vapor Rub to the scalp is in the video. But, please DO NOT…I repeat…DO NOT…apply heat with this treatment. Unless you want to be bald. Other than that, add this hair growth hack to your weekly routine and let me know the results.

African Hair Growth Secrets Revealed | Chebe Powder Grows Hair Long, Fast!

Who says black hair don’t grow?! These African women grow their hair past their hips! Click on the video above to discover African Hair Growth Secrets Revealed | Chebe Powder Grows Hair Long, Fast!

I hear it often…

“You’re African American, that’s why your hair is longer. You know you guys aren’t fully African anymore”. And as much as I argue with people against this point, they still believe that African hair doesn’t grow. I tell them that hair grows from the scalp and no race is exempt from that. I try to explain the difference between hair growth versus hair retention. And, I give the example of black people growing amazing lengths from loc’ing their hair as evidence of this fact. But no matter what I say they still stay stuck on their incorrect viewpoint that black hair don’t grow.

Well, guess what!

I stumbled across this mini-documentary that made me smile a knowingly grin. African women from Chad grow their hair beyond hip length! Their hair is kinky curly and LONG. Their secret is a combination of different ingredients that they ground into a powder. This powder, called Chebe, is applied to the hair shaft. First, they wet the hair and apply an oil of choice. Next, the moisture is locked with the Chebe powder. You can check out the full process in the documentary and maybe purchase some for yourself. Chebe powder is starting to become for sale online. You Can purchase it by clicking on the photo:

Not to sound arrogant but black is beautiful and I enjoyed watching these African ladies apply the chebe powder to their beautiful long natural hair. Don’t take my word for it, make sure to check out African Hair Growth Secrets Revealed | Chebe Powder Grows Hair Long, Fast for yourself.
