And as always she used her special hair growth oil, we have a great recipe you can use here:
The first style she did is one called the "Nubian Bun" and it is SUUUUUPER CUTE! If any of y'all have ever used the Curls passion fruit curl control paste like she did with this style, please DM me on our Instagram and tell me if the smell is as amazing as it should be for ANYTHING with passionfruit in it.
That is one of my FAVORITE fruits smells EVVAAAAAR! Anyway, back to the styles…
Oh, BTW it seems her hair growth routine is definitely working because her hair is thick and luscious.
Protective Styles 2-through-4 Work Off French-Braids
The 2nd style she did was a ROYAL-LOOKING, cute and trendy French-braid style.
The 3rd style is used the French-Braid style and made it more formal and business-ready. It looks soooooo moist and gorgeous OMG!
The 4th style is one that I didn't see coming and have never thought to do… She did some neat little bottom buns in the back after undoing the ends of the French-braids, I think you'll like it. I did, but probably not on myself, I'd definitely put this and a teen-to-early 20s girl though!

Curl Defining Products Reviews From Other Naturals
I'm less than 24 hours natural (just got my relaxed ends cut today) and this is the first product I've used. Let me say, prior to putting this in hair my curl definition was non-existent. This stuff tightened my curl pattern, and made my hair incredibly soft, and moisturized. I can't stop touching it.
I'm going to have to pick up some more, because I have never had a natural hair product work AND be soaffordable. I love my natural hair but with this stuff i love it even more...TRY IT!
2. Bio Infusion Curl Creme
This curl pomade is the BOMB. Works great on dry hair. The curl creme is good but it has a LOUD fragrance... It's not as noticeable the next day. If you have thin hair you may want avoid this product. Bio infusion curl creme is paraben and sulfate free (SEE THIS ARTICLE toavoid the most dangerous product ingredients). You don't have to use a lot of the product to get the defined curl look that you want. You get a good bang for your buck with this one.
My hair requires a lot of moisture, and it's texture ranges from silky curls to frizz. I put the Darcy Botanical Sweet Coco Bean Curl Smoothing Cream product on my wet hair and let it dry naturally. My hair feels healthier and the curls are more pronounced. I also used a botanical spray gel for curly hair, to tame the frizzy sections and to have a more manageable style. I'm pleased with this product- and I like the vanilla bean smell, and would definitely purchase again!
I bought this at Target I have used the co-wash and leave in conditioner which both are great. Cantu's products are on the low end for natural hair care and it delivers what it promises. I have used Miss Jessie's in the past which is ridiculously priced and doesn't curl my hair like this. I do not even have to use gel for the style to stay I love it. I have regular black folk hair with a little water, leave in conditioner and this product it curls just fine. I have also used Carols daughter Healthy Hair Butter which also brings out the curl pattern but I have to use a little gel with that to maintain the curls. Use what works on your hair do not go broke trying to find a natural hair care product to give your hair curls that it was not created to have. Enjoy the texture God gave you and be blessed.
Yes, I like this product and it has become by base product from which others are judged. It is trusted and never let's me down. I even achieved my first wash and go with this product on 4b/c hair. It produced loose coily curls. Another good product for Wash and Go is the As I Am Naturally line and it produces a tighter coil and a different Wash and Go look.
My daughter who has more 4c than b does not achieve a wash and go with this product. Perhaps her hair needs more moisturizing since she is swimming everyday this summer, before she can achieve a wash and go with this product.
The product is primarily used to keep my ends and overall hair moisturized. On my hair it produces a soft hold. I am still very heavy handed using products so it is also oily to the touch, but that should change as I master the use of styling products.
Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie is an EXCELLENT creme hair dress and conditioner--think Vitapointe Creme Daily Hairdress, 7 Ounce or Liv Creme Hairdressing and Conditioner kicked up a dozen notches just for curls. No mineral oil, petroleum and beeswax--Shea, coconut , mango, aloe silk protein instead!
This product is best used just as you would a creme hairdressing. I use this in the same may my mother used Liv on my hair when I was little for braids/braid-outs, finger curls, twist/twist-outs and smoothing ponytails. It works great as a layer on wet hair. Use it after your leave-in conditioner and before your sealing oil. You only need a tiny bit for shine, moisture and de-frizzing . I tap my finger lightly into the product for each braid, twist etc. and take a little more only if I need it.
Do not expect hold from this product! I DO NOT use it to set my "wash and go". Curl Enhancing Smoothie is not intended to perform like an Eco Styler Gel or Kinky Curly Curling Custard. On the other hand, because the product hydrates curls, it is great for finishing your "wash and go" or "rod set" after it dries. It's also great for refreshing second day hair because it helps curls to spring back and smooths frizz.
My best advice for using Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie is use it to do what it's supposed to do.
So many naturals tell us that Kinky-Curly Curling Custard is a tough natural hair product to master. It’s full of nourishing botanicals like agave nectar extract, aloe vera juice and marshmallow, and has a very slippery and goopy texture. A little goes a long way, as it instantly clumps and smoothes your coils. Expect extremely shiny and springy coils. Although it works best on very tight, coarse coils in the “4” category, it might pack too much of a punch for loose curls.
Overall, ladies love this product for natural hair! It works great on hair that is 4a-4c and this natural hair product helps to define your curls and coils beautifully. We've noticed that some of the curly hair product reviewers are saying that this Kinky-Curly Curling Custard does not work for their 4-something type hair. The real problem is that some people don't truly understand their hair type. 4a type hair has S shaped strands with small yet a defined curl pattern and 4b hair generally has Z-shaped strands with no defined curl or coil pattern.
Remember that this product is not a chemical curl enhancer or a hair relaxer, therefore it won't give 4b hair a curl pattern when it doesn't already have one. Our suggestion to all those unsure of your natural hair type is to wash all products/oils/gels out of your hair with a clarifying shampoo then condition, rinse and air dry your hair. If you do not have defined curls or coils and your hair looks like a lovely soft fluffy cloud then you have gorgeous 4b hair. If you have 4b hair don't bother buying this product for Wash-n-Gos. Instead use it for twist-outs or braids-outs for similar results.
Be warned.... Some believe that regular Wash-n-Gos are unhealthy for type 4 hair anyway - the reason being the tangling that comes from 4a/b hair's super shrinkage may lead to breakage. It's recommended that all hair in the type 4 range be kept moist and stretched with ends protected at all times to keep breakage and tangling at a minimum. Many type 4 naturalistas are able to retain 6" of hair growth a year following this rule so give it a try.
Oh and KCCC works really great when you pair it with a superior leave in conditioner like Kinky-Curly Knot Today or Sensories Smooth Passionflower and Aloe leave in. Other curly hair products that are worth mentioning are Deva curl products for curly hair, we will have a few reviews on their best curl defining products very soon so subscribe to BlackHairOMG today for future updates!
So she got a nice deep conditioning treatment while giggling the whole time at hubby.... Check it out.
Perming Natural Hair Joke - Revenge Prank
Favorite Comments from Fake Perm Video
Jessica Peyton says...
"Girl you should have come out there crying with a scarf around your head and told him your hair was falling out and made a big deal of not wanting him to see it, and THEN take the scarf off and show him your full head of natural hair! Muahahahaha!"
"Can I get an Amen for an African American man whose feeling is STILL hurt because you want a perm! Lord bring them back!!"
"You could see the pride in his eyes diminish when he saw his wife putting that chemical cream or so he thought on her hair. After that, she was getting the shun treatment. But he was very relieved at the end but tried not to seem phased by it.
And continued to let her know that knowing who you are and what you stand for is what's important and that she was being wishy-washy because she got him on the prank lol And that jokes about diluting your African heritage was unacceptable. Which is a good thing he is a man who enjoys exactly what he has and that it doesn't need to change."
Products Used In Her FAKE Perm - REAL Deep Conditioner Recipe
Any fool that says "Black women can't grow long hair" needs to watch this video and have a tall glass of shut-your-trap-forever juice.
Cuz look.... After you see the gorgeously HEALTHY and loooooooong hair on this small YouTuber who goes by the name of "Indigenous Standz" you are gonna see what is truly possible with the right care and techniques.
What is TRULY impressive about this routine is just how she stresses keeping max hydration on her hair. Girrrrl, real talk...
You already know all those expensive-behind hair product retailers are happy this sista doesn't get a lot of shine or get a ton of attention (yet) because she's showing everyone who will listen how she's using only 3 very affordable products. Her Natural hair growth regimen products are....
WARNING! WARNING! If you will catch an absolute hissy-fit from seeing a sista use "fake hair" to produce a dope protective hairstyle. See yourself out of this article cuz waaaaay too many folks got in their feelings over this one. Whew....
End of the day, the style she shows comes out looking amazing and she gives a ton of detailed and helpful instructions. I mean she did her DANG THANG!
But laaaawd hammercy, some women really came at this young lady crazy. Yáll already know, some folks ain't happy unless they mad about somethin'.
I just blew your mind with that philosophical DOOZY, didn't I? Ha! Anywhoo girrrl...
I can hardly understand it, still let's enjoy it for what it is. A thorough and cool tutorial. The vid is below and I posted a few of the comments that I liked defending the sista....
In Defense Of Seun's Use of "Fake Hair" - Protective Styling Has a REAL Purpose
One thing I liked about the comments under the vid is that some other women stepped up and defended Seun about using the Italian Perm Yaki Hair so that she could go on living her best life and not be going back and forth with no haters, LOL! Check them out....
Also some ppl like versatile looks that last for days so they don't have to bother with combing their hair, esp those with a busy work life. Lastly, she's doing a TUTORIAL to show others how to create styles, not necessarily meaning she would wear this style or wear weave all the time.
Now stop asking. You sound rude and quite annoying. Btw, I thought the video was useful, as intended. Keep up the great work..."

Ebony Miracle Says...
I am seriously binge-watching your videos! I understand why you wear weaves(which has absolutely nothing to do with self-hate), the proof of the wonders and benefits of wearing protective styles is clearly in your natural hair which you proudly flaunt on a regular basis! Your tutorials get through to me in such a way that no other YouTuber has.
And for the first time in my history of wearing weaves, I am able to actually entertain the idea of installing my own weaves(may God help me!). I took down my weave not too long ago and noticed a significant amount of growth that I would not have noticed if I was constantly styling and manipulating my natural hair.
Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us. You are truly beautiful inside as well as outside. To be as young as you are and to have such a keen knowledge of hair is truly a blessing. I wish you the very best in whichever direction you decide to go in life.
Ahhh, don't you just love to see a happy couple working together?!? Well in this video tutorial showing us how to do a GORGEOUS finger coil natural hairstyle, Youtuber Yapah Rawchaa's husband lends a helping hand and narrates this bomb natural hairstyle while the sista shows the skills off.
It's so great to hear her husband encouraging her love and care for her natural hair and even giving a little pep talk to the other natural women out here who will ultimately end up with healthier and stronger hair.
Anyway, we wanted to pick through all of the "bought and paid for" reviews that are so popular on Youtube these days and find you some honest reviewers, just like we did when The Mane Choice came out with theirType 4 Hair Line a few months ago. So let's get into it, shall we...
2 Youtubers who BlackHairOMG Trusts - Fro The Culture Reviews
But Kimberly Cherrell and Shenelle Taylor get our 100% AUTHENTIC BlackHairOMG STamp of Approval. They always give their real feelings even if they don't like a product.
Even in these reviews of "Do it FRO the Culture" from The Mane Choice, one of these sistas flat out says, she'll continue to use the rest of her bottles, but it's not really for HER. She loved the conditioner, but she says she pretty much loves ALL of The Mane Choices conditioners, but when it came to styling she had some different feelings....
Check out Kimberly Cherrell's video right now and see what you think...

Our Main Choice of Comments That May Interest You
So while Kimberly had an issue with some of the products, other naturals who have tried it think it's the bomb! Hey, we're all different. Check out a couple comments about the NEW Main Choice Do it Fro The Culture line...
"Girl you know I loved that gel, but I completely understand why it wasn’t your favorite. It didn’t do the things you love in a gel-like super definition, but honey that’s why I loved it. No crunch, not drying at all...."
Da Lazy Natural says...
"This Main Choice Do it Fro The Culture line would be good for a friend of mine who prefers the big fluffy fro look over defined with a little crunch. I like my curls defined with some crunch because I know it's going to last all week. I'm not now nor have I ever been one to wash my hair every few days.
My wash days are every week to week and a half (depending on how good I'm being). So I need products that will give me both moisture and hold while keeping the frizz at bay!"
The comments are full under these videos too! The Mane Choice is stirring things up once again with their unique marketing, beautiful packaging and attempts to cover the needs of EVERY type of natural. Check out this last review from Shenelle Taylor...

Ahhh, I love the smell of fresh haircare dictators in the morning! Baaaaahaha...
Me personally, I can't understand why people get real-world angry about someone applying a little heat to their hair every blue moon. Yes, constant and harsh heat is a known hair killer, folks gets so EXTRA though!
I mean, I don't use heat. But do you boo... And if I do have any reaction it maybe some CONSTRUCTIVE advice or if somebody is totally jackin' their hair up and don't wanna listen, I just sit back, grab some popcorn and get my giggle on.
Life's too short too catch a nervous breakdown over somebody else's head of hair.
So let me tell you what happened girrrrrl, we've all seen the naturals that get waaaaay in their feelings about what someone else does with their own hair (you know the type), lol.
Well honeeeeeey, some of these folks I saw talkin' bukoo crap about this sista named Zoia was just a lil' too much.
Her tutorial below is actually quite good, truth be told. But she got soooo much backlash that she had to come back and explain her self...
Zoia Explains That There's No Reason to Be BIG MAD
So look, the sista ended up coming back to say to all the natural hair rulers of the world...
"Guys, lol. This is crazy I have to post this but I rarely straighten my WHOLE head because I wear sew-ins and do other things to my hair. I give my hair breaks all the time and prior to me straightening my hair this time I went 3 months without putting any heat on my hair!
I'm fine with my hair. It's still healthy with my little heat damage in the front! Thanks for the advice though... (smiley face)"
She kept it peaceful and classy, as a true Queen does... And besides that, the proof was ALL THE WAY in the pudding.
The End Results: FIRE
So not everyone was a negative Nancy, many naturals showed love and tried to let this sista be great the best way she knows how to be.
OH BABY!!! I gotta something for you to see, your gonna wanna kiss me, you hear me?!?

"Girrrl, I've Been Twisting My Hair Wrong The Whole Time!"
The most BOMB part you'll see in this tutorial is that she shows you how most of us are twisting incorrectly and end uplookin' dusted and busted, lol.
Yes, she actually shows how to twist WRONG too, the exact mistakes we usually make that are the main reason you don't get defined long-lasting twists.
it may seem like common sense to many, but it's nerve-wracking for many melanin bombshells who have no idea why they cannot achieve that "bomb" twistout/defined curls/curl definition! The skruggle is real honey..... (I know how to spell "struggle", chill....)
I feel this is such an important video because most natural hair YouTubers don't focus on this subject, checoutuy the video tutorial here....
