Quick Holiday Styling With Revolution Ego + Cantu Beauty

Happy Holidays, guys! I hope everyone is having an amazing Monday morning (not an oxymoron, I promise). I'm currently headed back to Charlotte from a quick visit to Atlanta. I can't wait to wrap up my Christmas shopping today and tomorrow, then it's on to wrapping them all before Sunday. 

Monday is usually the start of a crazy week, and in the midst of the shopping and wrapping, and running around, I need something quick and easy to get me through the madness. It's only right that I teamed up with Revolution Ego and Cantu Beauty to give you a quick and easy holiday style to get you through the season! If you're anything like me, this best-kept hair secret will save your life. As you know, Cantu is my hair care line of choice, so I grabbed a few of my favorite products and let my stylist Kelley give them a try on my hair. I love stopping by Revolution Ego, for hair styling, cut, and color; these ladies keep me looking fab and keep me laughing nonstop when I'm in the salon! So without further ado, here's what we did.

I sat in Kelley's chair to talk about my hair, any issues I've had, if we would be trimming, and also talked to my photographer about which angles to get. (That's equally important, people!) After a few minutes chatting, Kelley decided that coils around the back and sides of my head and perm rods on the top would be the perfect style for me. I LOVE how easily she comes up with the styles that meet my needs.

Then, it was time to head over to the shampoo bowl, my favorite part.  We shampooed and conditioned my hair with Cantu's Sulfate-Free Cleansing Cream Shampoo and the award-winning Sulfate-Free Hydrating Cream Conditioner as we caught up on life and chatted about Kelley's two amazing little men!

Next, it was time to DETANGLE and blow dry! Okay, are ya'll ready for this secret? Cantu's Coil Calm Detangler will change your wash day life. Major key alert! This step is SO important before washing or even after you wash and condition--it preps the hair for styling. 

Trims are also needed. You want to make sure you're trimming all the dead hair off to promote hair growth. I trim regularly and don't mind it because my hair grows super fast. Length check!

After my hair was clean and tangle-free, Kelley got her style on. She coiled my hair so beautifully with Cantu's Moisturizing Twist and Lock Gel which she loved and perm-rodded the top with my go-to, the best of the best, Cantu's Coconut Curling Cream

Then it was time for my least favorite place, the dryer! I mean does anyone else hate the dryer? I always fall asleep and my head is bobbling everywhere or I get extra hot and just want to strip down (okay that's a little dramatic).  

45 mins later, and VOILA! The takedown process was pretty easy. Kelley moisturized my hair with Cantu's Anti-Frizz Smoothing Oil and I was all done and ready for an amazing holiday party, family time, or just done with styling for the week.
