Go #Curly2Straight with Motions Straight Finish! (Giveaway!!!)

Happy Friday, Ladies!!! Just when I thought I’d be back to my regular posting schedule…BAM!! Four 12 hour work days in a row….and BOOM!! I’m headed back out of town for two more weeks! Le sigh.  I won’t complain…I’m just happy to have a job.  Lol!

Anyway, in the midst of my busyness, I managed to find time to try out the new line of Motions Straight Finish products.  You all may have noticed that I’ve been wearing my hair straight a lot lately.  There are two reasons for that — 1) IT’S FREEZING IN ATLANTA!  Wet hair styling is PAINFUL when it’s so cold outside…especially for someone like me who prefers to air dry, and 2) I just needed a break from the curly…I do love my curls, but a girl gets bored with the same style after awhile.  I realize the debates about whether or not someone with natural hair should EVER straighten their hair get quite heated in the natural hair community, but my two cents is this — my favorite part about having natural hair is the versatility…I love having the ability to go back and forth between curly and straight hair.  That being said, I also know that I have to be realistic about the potential risks of heat styling.  You all know that I am no stranger to heat damage.  I am well aware that I have to be extra cautious about how often I straighten, and I also have to be diligent about using the right products and tools to protect my hair when I do straighten.  So, of course I was happy to try out the new Motions Straight Finish system.

Motions-Straight-Finish-Review-Giveaway004 I’ve actually heard really great things about the products from Lexi with the Curls and The Style and Beauty Doctor, so I was pretty excited to try them.  The folks at Motions hooked me up with the whole Motions Straight Finish kit, which includes the entire Straight Finish system and a new ISO Flat Iron…heeeeeeey! Lol.

Motions-Straight-Finish-Review-Giveaway005 So anyway, the Motions Straight Finish system came right on time because BOOM!! Guess who got a new do?? Me, that’s who!  I have been obsessing over getting a long bob for the longest, but of course, I was cared to make the leap and actually cut my own hair.  Well, now that I’m a weave pro (LOL), it occurred to me that there was no need to cut my hair…I could just get shorter extensions…duh! So, that’s exactly what I did.  Check out my sleek asymmetrical bob, y’all!

Motions-Straight-Finish-Review-Giveaway003 So, I left quite a bit of my hair out at the top and sides.  I haven’t quite gotten to the point of full enclosure extensions yet….I just think it looks more natural with some of my hair out, and I like the option to change up my part and do fun twists and braids in the front. Y’all know me. I reused my K. Logan wavy hair, so I do have the option of rocking a wavy bob, in which case I don’t really have to heat style my own hair.  Although the texture doesn’t match my hair perfectly, I have found that I can blend it by twist or rod setting my wet hair.  But, the truth is….I love the look of a straight bob, so while I have this weave, I will probably wear it straight more often than not.  #ImJustBeingHonest.  With that in mind, I am going to have to be EXTRA cautions over the next 6 weeks to prevent heat damage on the parts of my hair that were left out.  I’ll be using the Motions Straight Finish system, keeping that flat iron temp under 400 degrees, and giving my hair a good deep conditioning and protein treatment with every wash.  So far, so good! I washed the part of my own hair that was left out this morning, and it curled right back up. YAY!!
