In this tutorial, I am going to style my friend Kelli’s relaxed, pixi-cut using products from Carol’s Daughter, Ouidad, Jane Carter Solution, Aveda and SoftSheen-Carson. Everything used and done in this tutorial can be applied to relaxed, natural, and color-treated hair. No matter the texture or chemical state, all hair needs proper moisture-protein balance, protection from heat damage, free radicals and UV-ray damage, and you have to take care of your scalp.
The Scalp Invigorator is a vibrating, hand-held, waterproof tool designed to make the exfoliation and massage process more efficient, convenient and enjoyable. It comes with a two-year warranty, batteries and screw driver for easy install, and the cover is removable to make cleaning simple.
