Motions Straight Finish Memphis Style Event Recap + Giveaway

Motions Straight Finish

Around a month ago I was contacted to review the new Motions Straight Finish product line and to host an in-store meetup in Memphis, TN.  Check out my YT reviews of the product from curly to straight and back to curly again.  In short I think this system worked really well in protecting my hair from heat while straightening and my curls came bouncing back in just one wash.  For more info on where you can find these products check out Motion’s website.

My favorite thing about this blogging “fame” is to be able to assist people in their journey.  And hosting the Curly 2 Straight Tennessee Meetup allowed me to do just that. I met and interacted with so many wonderful natural women and provide advice on styling, techniques and establishing a regimen. All in all we had a really amazing time, check out some of the pictures from the event below.

Motions Secret Style Event in Memphis TN

Motions Secret Style EventHey y’all I am please to announce that I will be hosting Motions Secret Style Event in Memphis, TN on Tuesday 10/1/2013.  This event is all about Motions new Straight Finish product line that is designed to aid curly girls in utilizing the versatility in their hair and going straight without damaging those tresses.

The Straight Finish product line consists of a cleanser, leave-in conditioner and sealer packed with keratin, healthy oils and silicones for heat protection.  I was a bit nervous about heat styling my own hair, I actually have not done it myself in 2-3 years but I decided to give myself a blow-out, check out my video on YT

These products are locally available in drug stores like Walmart so it is only right that we throw a party right in the aisles of the store.  Join us as we answer your questions, provide beauty tips, free product samples, refreshments and of course giveaways.
