Afrodeshiak..The Kinky Life
By golly I found some! By the way all of those apps are free. There were plenty of paid ones I could review in the future.
Manufacturers itself as the first app for natural hair. I do not understand how true this declare it. It was a so-so app. Nice pics of hairstyles. Some sections didn’t work nicely.
Pics of hair kinds:
First off this app has TONS of hairstyles. From what I see users can go to the web site and upload pics for them to be positioned on the app (I uploaded just a few myself). It has completely different catergories reminiscent of wash n go’s, frohawks, locs, and more. I was on the lookout for a headwrap class however did not see one. Possibly they will work on that for the longer term.
Beauty Provide Locator
Did not work very effectively..
I do not know what the factors for being a magnificence provider was. After i advised it to discover a store for me it mentioned that there was one about thirteen miles from my house. I tried to find the one it positioned on Google but the search got here up with nothing.
Additionally there are lots of “black magnificence supply” shops which are round me. Black meaning they’re geared in the direction of black hair and sell weaves, relaxers, gels, and the occassional clothing and big hoop earrings. Like I stated, I dont actually know what was meant by black magnificence provide..maybe they meant one owned by black folks. I won’t ever know.
Searching for products
Once i clicked on the “Distributors” icon a list of manufacturers that are marketed towards pure hair equivalent to Shae Moisture, CURLS, and Pura Body Naturals. If you select a brand it takes you to a web based retailer through which you possibly can purchase a product on-line. I thought that was pretty convienent.
Also there’s a social community kind section known as “Curlfriends Metropolis”. I don’t know much about this b/c I did not need to create a profile. The even have a weblog.
“‘Fro Trend Week” information section.. apparently it’s Sept 24-30 in ATL. Who knew It appears that this event is hosted by the makers of the app so I assume other events will not be marketed however possibly they are going to.
Real Life Use:
I might use the app for hairstyles and nothing else. Possibly if I didn’t have access to a computer and that i moved into the wilderness the place I couldn’t purchase any pure hair care products I’d use it for buying.
Curls On the Go
This app was very cute! Had lots of cute features. For instance under the icon it said “curl power”. I enjoyed searching it. Lots of information on your hair sort and what merchandise you need to use.
Select Your Hair Kind
The first thing you might want to do when using this app is the select your hair type. They vary from typical white of us hair to the nappiest of nappy black people hair. I chosen 4a primarily based of the definition..though I actually don’t get into hair typing.
The feature gives you a forecast of how much your hair will frizz primarily based off the weather to your location. How nice is that! for example tomorrw it says my hair may have lovely, tight kinks. It also offers you some recommend merchandise you should use in case you desire a humectant, to moisturize, and protect from the sun. It really helpful Miss Jessie’s Curly Buttercreme as a humectant which I happen to loathe.
This section has an inventory of products that you can use for your haircare and it contains opinions. For shampoo the app recommends manufacturers comparable to Jessicurl, Kinky Curly Come Clear, and Shea Moisture. It has sulfate free, clarifying, and dry shampoo choices. Along with shampoo it recommends conditioners, styling merchandise, coloring options, keratin therapies, and instruments/appliances. For instruments it stated I ought to use Curlformers, silk scarfs, and the Tangle Teezer. I must admit, all products I have considered are dead on for what others have really helpful for my hair sort. These folks have completed their research. This part is one of the crucial informative in the app.
I was very skeptial about this part. As you could know, black people do not let just anybody do our hair and this especially applies to natural haired black folk. I have a few horror stories through which somebody at a salon has jacked my hair up.
I Googled a number of the salons advocate. Most of them had been geared towards white folks hair. Now, I cannot confirm nor deny that they’ve Keisha within the again and she might be able to do some bomb @ss pure hair..but still, I wouldn’t go to many of the salons advocate. I do know of a number of natural salons in Nashville and just one was on the app.
You have an choice to tag sections of the app to your favorites so you can acces them quickly.
Real life use
I would use this app in real life to search out hair care merchandise if I’m out at a store trying to resolve what to purchase. If it was a particular occasion I wished to look cute for, I’d look on the frizz issue forecast. I want it had pics however I guess you cannot have everything.
Black Hair Kinds
Nice for pics and not a lot else.
Greatest part of the app. Customers are invited to upload a pic and the app says it could also be used. Has option for natural hair, long (straight) hair, short (straight) hair, wild styles (some of which have been fairly cool, but once more, for straight hair kids hair (straight in fact), and wedding ceremony types. I had seen some of the natural hair photos earlier than. It seemed like a Google image search.
Listed one occasion. Possibly extra will likely be added as they come.
Featured YouTube vids most of which seemed to be pure.
Actual Life Use
This app was fairly sucky. I might see should you had been attempting to discover a hairstyle it may be useful. However I’d reasonably use Google image search or my YouTube app. This was taking up much want megabytes on my telephone so it was deleted.
