I love how this outfit came together! I’ve been dying to wear this dress, but I wasn’t sure how I wanted to take it on. So, I just went with it. I actually forgot I had these heels, but found them when trying on other camel colored heels. I chose these because I thought it complimented the colors and vertical stripes in the dress. I didn’t plan on doing my hair like this, but it worked well with my outfit. So, I was definitely happy about that. The earrings remind me of something I’d see from an earlier era, which is why I decided to wear them. I was trying to do an older-style look, and I think I captured it without looking to outdated.

Dress: Thrifted

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).
