Let It Clump: HairPlay goodies!

| August 14, 2008 | 21 Comments



Hola chiquitas. I want to share with you some products that actually work ooooon…


POW!! Hair like this! I have 4/B type hair which means I have tight tight tiiiiight curls (hell, or naps…hehe!). My hair tends to get dry and requires a ton of maintenance so it is a rarity when something besides a natural concoction actually works on the Mother fro here.

I had the opportunity to try two products from Hair Play.

Description: Set doesn’t discriminate against any hair texture. Natural, curly, straight, colored, frizzy your SET. Flexible and weightless as a setting lotion,and easy like a mousse. Use right after shampooing as a detangling leave-in conditioner, enjoy more control with your natural texture or blow dry silky smooth.

Ummm, so it actually works for the fro. I used it after no-pooing and conditioning my hair. I found that it was not sticky but pretty thin in texture. I distributed evenly on my hair and twisted my hair in 2-strand twists. I didn’t get any flakes and it wasn’t extra STIFF either. Who remembers “Pump It Up” spritz? That spray was like liquid metal, mayn. It definitely isn’t on that level. I was surprised that it actually slicked my hair down and stayed in tact. Yikes, I could have down without the parabens in the product since I’m a natural nut when it comes to my hair but other than that, for $19.50 Hair Play’s Set isn’t bad at all.


Don’t even ask me why that picture is extremely pixelated. Ha! After twisting my hair I dabbed a bit of serum in my palms, rubbed them together and applied SEAL alll over the twists. I loves this stuff! It gives me a great deal of shine without being too greasy. Ain’t nothin’ worse than layin’ your head on the car window to to later see a big grease spot. Ewww…doesn’t quite happen with Hair Play’s Seal so I can dig it. I think $22 is a bit steep for the tiny bottle but a little goes a long way.


SO YAY TO HAIR PLAY!

I’m glad that Fritz Clay, the creator of Hair Play recognizes women have different hair textures. I swear, 90% of hair companies out there just don’t understand that. He says, “my salon discriminates against no one. We are the experts in straight hair, Asian hair, Black hairstyles as well as styles for Latina hair, no texture left out of coarse after all we’re Hair Play.”

Alriiiight! Check out these and more products by Hair Play at HairPlayProducts.com.

The finished twisty look!



Stay beautiful!!

  10. Jamila says:

    I’m going to have to up on some of that when I have a respectable fro again. lol. How long did it take to do your twists? They look great! When I had my fro it took literally days to do my own 2-strand twists.

  11. Nikki says:

    Love both looks on you! Also, love your blush…what brand and color is that?

  12. B says:

    ShanSoPink–> *ding* Thanks for the idea, chica! Sho appreciate cha. I'll dedicate that post to you.

    LB–> Thanks GA fam!

    BBG–> Thanks sweets. I think those products will be great for anyone though. Give 'em a try!

    Alyssia–> Join the "3 years natural" club. Yay!! Feel free to email me anytime, love. I'll do more hair posts.

    KD–> Yeah, umm…doing the 2-strand twists used to take me half a day but since cutting my hair and occupying myself while watching Lifetime or the Olympics….I can get 'em done pretty quickly. Dang, Canada needs to get right and carry the good stuff!

    PBW–> Thank you, Auntie. No more blogging…go ahead and write another fantastic book for me to read in 2 days! ;)

    Kat–> Ah haaaa, you know! 2 snaps for you! LOL!

    J–> It took me about 2 1/2 hours which is a vast improvement. It used to take over a day for me too but I've gotten faster.

    Nikki–> Thank you so much. And I regret to inform you that I don't recall the name of that blush. I'm guessing NARS Crazed, though.
