Andis Ceramic Ionic Styler Hair Dryer Review

This is NOT a sponsored post or review. I purchased this with my own money!!

Andis Ceramic Hair Dryer



This is my opinion of the Andis Ceramic Ionic Styler Hair Dryer. I purchased mine at Walmart, but I noticed when I googled it, Target has it for $15.79!! HERE! They have free shipping going on now for Christmas so snatch it up NOW!!

I really like this blow dryer. It comes with 3 attachments, a cool button, and 3 settings (high,medium,low). It has 2 speed settings! The high setting really gets hot and the medium (warm) setting is perfect for my daughters hair!

If you are in the market for a good functional hair dryer that doesn't break the bank, I recommend this one.

I haven't blow dried my daughters hair since August 2014. I plan to blow it out the first of 2015 for her trim, then I think we will go back to no heat for a while!

Another Easy Updo *Natural Hairstyle for Girls*





Here's another cute, quick, & easy updo. This style is great for all ages! It's perfect for church, weddings, school, and every event in between!

Supplies Needed:
(2) Goody Ponytail Holders
Moisturizer (I used Kera Care Conditioning Cream)
Smoothing Gel (I used Eco Styling Gel)
Brush (I used the Knot Genie) 
Pin Tale Comb

A Che's hair was slightly stretched for this hairstyle. This style was done after the Knot Genie Review video. I washed, conditioned, and detangled her hair. Then I put it in 4 ponytails, twisted, and let her hair air dry. 
  1. Part hair from ear to ear.
  2. Make 2 angle parts from the front to the part in the middle. *Use the edge of her eyes as your guide to make the parts.*
  3. Cornrow,Twist, or Dutch braid (whichever you choose) the left and right sections.
  4. Put all 3 front sections in a ponytail. Split the ponytail into 2 sections and twist each section.
  5. Brush the back section up into a high ponytail close to the front ponytail. Split the ponytail into 2 sections and twist each section.
  6. Take the plaits from the rear ponytail and wrap them around the top ponytail and tuck the ends inside of the ponytail holder.
  7. Take the plaits from the top ponytail and wrap them around the rear ponytail and tuck the ends inside of the ponytail holder.
Tip: You can use hair pins to hold her hair in place if needed. You also may need to play around with the ponytails to get the look that you want!

For short hair you can use perm rods on the ponytails or do a cute straw set on them OR just rock 2 big afro puffs! 

Don't forget to like us on Facebook & Instagram and share your #BrownGirlsHair with us!

Get $7 off the Knot Genie Brush use code BGH7 good until Dec.31,2014. Purchase it HERE!

The Knot Genie Review

*PLEASE NOTE*Although this post is sponsored, ALL opinions are my own. 


www.KnotGenie.com


I have found the perfect product to add to our detangling process. If you are looking for an aide to your detangling process, look no further. The Knot Genie is available for you to try!

First here's a little history, The Knot Genie was created by Rikki Mor, Mom to 3 daughters. Through her frustration of fighting with her daughters while trying to detangle their hair, she searched high and low to find a brush or something that would help make hair time easier. After coming up empty handed, The Knot Genie was born. 

The Original Knot Genie


What makes the Knot Genie different? It has varying lengths of teeth on the brush. While brushing, the bristles gently bend to unravel even the most stubborn knots. This brush has a unique cloud shape to fit the palm of the had which makes it a more comfortable hair brushing experience.



The original Knot Genie is shaped like a cloud and they have added 2 more brushes to the family. The Teeny Genie (a travel size Knot Genie) and a Genie Supreme (a Knot Genie with a handle).

The Teeny & Original Knot Genies


I have put all of these brushes to the test and here's what I found:

They ALL REALLY DO WORK! No fluff, No exaggeration, No lie!

The Knot Genie ($14.99-$19.99) is the large original version of the brush. I easily brushed through LARGE sections of hair at one time. It was very easy to hold and caused no pain while it detanlged her hair. See Video Below.

The teeny genie Knot Genie ($14.99) is a smaller version of the original Knot Genie. It's easier to use on small sections of hair or on a toddlers head. It's also the perfect size for travel.

The Supreme Genie ($22.99) is just like the other 2 except it has a handle. The brush is about the size of the teeny genie. I found this one very easy to use as well. This is the one that I used on my hair.


The Supreme Genie

I was genuinely surprised at how these brushes work. There were very few hair strands lost during the detangling process with them. (I have never detangled without losing a strand or two. I think that is normal.)

The process was PAINLESS for me and my tender headed child. These brushes also decreased the amount of time that it took me to detangle both of our heads of hair, especially my daughters.

I also used this brush on her scalp while I washed her hair and it helped clean her scalp.

There are not many products that I endorse, but I really do recommend this brush for anyone who is currently having a hard time with the detangling process. I am still in Ahhh at how they work.

You can get $7 OFF any Knot Genie brush with Coupon Code BGH7. Good NOW-December 31, 2014! Get yours TODAY! That means you can try the original genie with this coupon code for only $7.99+shipping. Purchase it HERE. I promise you will not be disappointed.

Banding Hairstyle Tutorial





This tutorial shows how to use the banding method as a hairstyle.

Supplies Needed:
Freshly Washed Wet Hair
Goody Ponytail Holders
Wide Tooth Comb
Moisturizer of your choice. I used Kera Care Products.

1. Start at the rear of her head. Make a straight part from below her ear across to the other ear.
2. Take the middle part of the bottom section and make 4 squares and banded each.
3. Make a straight part down the right side of her head.
4. Make a square section, put a band on it and let the ponytail hang.
5. Make another square behind it, added the ponytail from the previous square, and added the band.
6. Repeat steps 4-5 until you get to the rear of her head.
7. Start at step 3 for the next section and continue until you have finished her entire head.

You can be creative with the parts. You don't have to do them straight back. Use your imagination and have fun with it!

More Banding.......
