Here’s the Fit of the Week! Pairing leggings with dresses really make for an awesome outfit. I wasn’t feeling very bright. So, I just wore dark colors. Not to mention it was raining, which made it one of those days. I was going to wear a pair of Ugg-style boots, but decided to go with the combat boots. I think the boots added a bit of flair to the outfit. I like combing different styles to complete an outfit. Although I didn’t want to wear any bright colors, I added color through my makeup. I think this is another way to add color to a dark/dull colored outfit.

Ampro ProStyl Shine ‘n Jam Silk Edges

I have another hair product to recommend from the folks of Ampro ProStyl. The Ampro ProStyle Shine n’ Jam Silk Edges gel is awesome. I was on my last leg of my sew-in and needed some reinforcement for my edges. I’m not sure if I’m extremely late or if this is a fairly new trend, but I was unaware that companies have been making gels specifically for your edges. Nevertheless, I think it was an awesome idea.

My edges were in bad shape. So, I was definitely in the market to purchase some gel. I was going to use the Shine n’ Jam for natural hair, but I came across the Silk Edge gel and decided to try that. I can’t say that I was disappointed. It definitely took care of my edges with no hesitation. It didn’t leave my hair flaky or with a nasty residue. It was light on my hair and long-lasting.

Something I’ve come to realize, especially when dealing with natural hair is that it is really trial and error when dealing with different products. While, I recommend this product, it may not work well with the next person’s hair as it has done with mine.  With that said, I do believe you should give it a shot, especially if you’re in the market for a new edge control gel.

The reason for the bulkiness is because that is where my track starts (Picture to the right).

Lay it Down: Shine ‘n Jam Extra Hold Conditioning Gel

Ladies, I have a hair product that I would like to share with you. Shine ‘n Jam Extra Hold Conditioning Gel by ampro PROSTYL  is the bomb! After my friend Aerial recommended I try it, I don’t have any regrets. This gel is definitely for people with hard to maintain hair. It’s not shown in this picture, but the container specifies the gel’s use for natural hair.

I haven’t had a perm in almost a year and my hair most certainly shows it. I’m in the process of growing it out before I commit to the “big chop”. So, until I do that I was searching for something that would keep all of my new growth in place. Shine ‘n Jam Extra Hold Conditioning  Gel did just that. I can apply a generous amount (it’s needed) to my hair in the morning and it lasts the entire day. As a conditioning gel, it leaves my hair soft and doesn’t harden it at all. It doesn’t leave my hair flaky either. I can definitely appreciate that aspect of it. Like any gel though, there may be residue left behind after day-to-day use, but washing your hair should  alleviate that problem.

I recommend this product, especially for women who need something that will really keep their hair in place and for a long period of time. I’m not aware of which stores it’s distributed to, but I purchased my Shine ‘n Jam from Wal-Mart.

Here’s a product review I found on YouTube.
