Natural Hair Styling Guide DVD
November 19, 2011
This DVD is great for natural hair styling. I learned about products I've never even heard of like flexi rods, ion hair dryers and setting foam! I liked how we're given a full view of every step and how we're told what tools to use and how to use them. I also like how there are different hair types (which are named i.e. course, fine etc.) and that models with different hair lengths are used as well. It was nice of the stylist to include not only twists but also flat-ironed hair. Sometimes I like to press my hair (but not too often!) and I appreciated that pressing was also considered a natural hair style since there are no harsh chemicals required to achieve the effect. One thing I didn't like that other reviewers have stated was the vagueness of the products used. What kind of oil?What kind of setting foam? What kind of gloss? I paused the DVD several times trying to see what brand the flat iron used was. I think it was Conair but I'm not sure because the stylists moves her hands so fast! lol. But seriously, whatever the stylist is using, I would like to use as well. Maybe she didn't mention the brands due to copyright issues? I'm not sure. Also, I know that one of the girls mentioned that her style would last for weeks, but I would have like to known how long each individual hair style would last. I know there is no way to know exactly how long it will last but an estimate would have been nice. Also, I would have liked to know if the stylist recommends washing the hair (during the supposed two weeks) or just toughing it out in order to save the style. Would water have ruined the style? These are things that I would have liked to have been touched upon. Despite these things, I do want to make it clear that I am appreciative of the dvd itself for being informative and well put together.
