As you may have noticed, I’ve been wearing my hair curly for the past few months, so I’ve been testing out a bunch of new products to see what works for me.

The biggest issue with being curly is that I have to wash my hair everyday, because my second day curls are no bueno. Today I’m challenging myself to go three days without wetting my hair, and putting Vernon Francois product to the test that I picked up from Sephora.

Vernon Francois is a award winning hair stylist turned product developer known for celebrating diversity and texture. He’s also the master mind behind Lupita Nyong’o’s tame mane.  He’s become one of the few “Scouted by Sephora” brands, in which Sephora curates selection of hidden gem brands that often go undiscovered at Sephora due to their small, limited distribution. I love the Scouted by Sephora helped turn me on to Vernon Francois and so many other, awesome brands.

I’ll be using a few products from the Vernon Francois to get me through three days without rinsing my locks, and styling my curls in three different ways. At the bottom of this post, I’ll also share a video so you can see how I used the product and created each style.

For Day One I started with a shower and used the CURL~ Shampoo & Conditioner combo before finishing with Light Weight Styling Serum to create my signature curly bob.

For Day two I used the RE~VAMP Moisture Spray to bring my dry and dull curls back to life and into a curly pony with clip in extensions, before finishing with Light Weight Styling Serum for definition and shine.

For Day three I used the PURE~FRO Moisture Spray at my roots and throughout for a much needed lift before pulling my hair into a top of my head pineapple pony, and swirling my ends into a top knot.
