This past Saturday I was invited, along with six other beauty bloggers in Atlanta, to participate in the Beautiful Textures Salon Experience at Drexina Nelson Private Salon in downtown Atlanta.

Beautiful Textures is a natural hair care line who just launched three new products in their collection; the Curl Definer Mousse, Curl Definer Styling Custard, and Edges to Ends Silkener. The line is designed to meet the hair care needs of multicultural customers with curly, wavy, kinky-coily and frizzy hair patterns.


(**DISCLAIMER: I apologize for the “self taken photos”. I clearly need a photographer or friend to take photos for better quality photos. But you get the gist…)

During our experience we got a first hand look at the new products and a chance to play around with them. But my favorite part of this experience was our complimentary makeover! What girl doesn’t enjoy a great makeover?

First step was the official “before” photo so we could really see the results from the products. Next, was over to the shampoo bowl where they used their Tangle Taming Moisturizing Shampoo and leave-in Conditioner. The products smell sooooo good and the conditioner has a little tingle to it which I love (because it gives me this feeling that it’s “working”) lol.

I was most concerned about how to control frizz when wearing a wash-and-go style, so my stylist decided to focus on my strands using the Curl Definer Mousse and a touch of the Moisture Butter Whipped Curl Créme to give my curls some hydration. She did a coil twist on my damp hair and sat me under the dryer for about 45 minutes.

Beautiful Textures had a film crew come out and shoot our experience in the salon. Here are some snapshots of fellow bloggers during their hair experiences as well.

After I got out from under the dreadful dryer, my stylist took my curls apart with a little bit of the moisture butter on her fingertips and gently pieced apart the coils. I headed over to get my makeup touched up by a professional makeup artist and finished up my experience with my official “after” photo taken by the photographer in the studio.

I loved my makeup too!

Aaaannndddd it’s a wrap! Here’s a look at my professional before and after photos! I saw a huge difference with the frizz and definition of my curls. Surprisingly, the products gave my color a nice little pop as well!

Thank you Beautiful Textures and Drexina Nelson Private Salon for the Beautiful Textures Salon experience! For more information on the products, you can visit their website here.
