Today I’m making a “Get Ready with me” Video tutorial. Today is a Straight hair day. I love when I straighten my hair, but my excitement only lasts for a short time because I seem to realize I can’t do very much with my straight hair so then I want my curly hair again.
Therefore, it’s a vicious cycle and I will continue going from curly to straight and straight to curly. LOL
My ‘Get Ready With Me‘ Beauty Post has no specific theme. I’m just going out and run errands so it’s a pretty simple day.
In this video my hair was a bit of a process. I started the out by washing it and then rolling it with some Jumbo Magnetic . I took my hair down a day later and then I flat ironed it a bit. I used a knock off CHI Professional 1-Inch Flat Iron, Ceramic Tourmaline, but I love it and it gets pretty hot so be careful not to singe your hair. This is not my usual process so I wanted to make sure you knew how my hair began.
Usually when I get out of the shower, I immediately wrap my hair in a towel to soak up excess water and then I will begin the hair grooming process. Today it’s just a run through of what I already completed earlier. I will make another video of my hair when I use a roller set.
Things Used by Wendi in the “Get Ready with Me Video”
In this video my hair is just about complete so I’m going to tie it back with my favorite green scrunchy hair tie (Pastel Tie-Dye Velvet Hair Scrunchy-Large). Next, is mascara….one of my favorite parts of applying makeup is when I use mascara because it gives my eyes a different, more brighter look. I use various eye mascara’s. (See the list above) I love making Baby Doll Eyelashes. Not to worry Curly Girls, I don’t wear false lashes. I will show you a tips on how to keep your eyes long and pretty in future video tutorials. Next step is to Exfoliate my lips. Exfoliation helps to remove dead skin from the lip, as well as making them appear plump. Next, I follow-up with my all time favorite NYX Mechanical Lip Pencil.
The final step to my lip color is to blot the lips with a small piece of napkin. Check out the above selfie that I took for you guys to see the finished me. As you probably noticed, I’m not going to wear any foundation, blush, or any other type of makeup. I like wearing an occasional subtle makeup on my eyes and lips.
I hope you enjoyed the video. Please Subscribe to our YOUTUBE channel to see more video’s like this one.
Have you ever heard the old cliché “the grass is greener on the other side?” Yep, girls with straight tend to be quite very into the girls with natural curls. Some of the compliments I receive are actually from girls with naturally curly hair. Most of them use blow dryers and flat irons because they may be completely over the NOT so tamed curl thing that the best alternative is to just straighten it.
When I receive compliments about my hair, questions usually follow in regards to styling tips. So, I’m almost led to believe that they really like their curly hair, but they are just not sure how deal, with it. Trust me, I know first hand. So, Curly girls should keep an open mind when receiving compliments from non-curly girls because you never know what hair type they were born with and if they have learned how to master the curl.
Today we are going to learn how to do a hair in Diane Twist-Flex Rods, Purple, 7/8″set. I will show you and explain step by step what I do to get my curls so loose and bouncy. I know we already have lots of curls, but sometimes your curls can seem a little unmanageable and you can tame them by using Flexi Rods. Twist-Flex Rods helps give you loose and bouncy curls, whether your hair is straight or curly. The Twist-Flex Rods should work with all hair types. If your hair isn’t really curly and it’s straight you can probably try to add some mousse or another agent that will make the curls last a little longer. Oh yeah, I just thought about a suggestion — you can spray your hair with a little hair spritzer or hair spray when it’s dry to help the curls stay a little bit longer.
Today’s tutorial is “How to Exfoliate using your toothbrush.” This is much better and safer than the so called “Kylie Jenner Lip challenge.” Check out my supple lips on this video. I’m using a soft bristle/wet toothbrush for this tutorial. After I exfoliate for about 1 minute then I will show you how to apply one of my favorite lip balms (eos Visibly Soft Lip Balm -Vanilla Mint), then we will complete the process with a lip liner and your favorite color lip stick.
I have several different lip exfoliating tips for you so stay tuned to all of my tutorials so you can learn the “Wendi Motte Lip Challenge” – – it’s safe and you won’t have to post video’s with swollen/red lips. LOL
BTW: I love Kylie Jenner and her lips are nice too.
Happy Day to all of the Curly Girls out there. I appreciate your support and following on our MixedCurlyGirl.com Blog. Today the tutorial video will teach you how to do Twist Rows and Braiding in your hair. It doesn’t take long and your hair will come out really pretty and it will have the illusion of lengthening it.

Organic Lavender Oil Recipe for Your Hair (Tweet This)
Welcome to another edition of Mixed Curly Girl. Today I am explaining what Wendi uses on her hair daily — Organic natural Hair detangler and leave in moisturizer, Shiner, and hair Sprucer, for your curly hair. It can be used on non curly hair as well.
This is very simple to prepare and it cost very little and you will absolutely love it in your hair and what it does for your hair in a short moment after spraying the solution on. Your hair will feel more lustrous and the curls will pop back into place. I have used this hair conditioner for several years and I absolutely love it.
Click the BOOK link to the right of this article and you can purchase it online and it will be shipped to your directly from Amazon.
Shake really well and then you spray directly on your wet hair.
Lavender 100% Pure Essential Oil – 1 fl Oz can be purchased at Sprouts or Whole Foods Markets. If these stores are not in your area then look for a natural whole foods store in your area and I’m almost sure they should have some. You can click any link above and purchase it online too.
The cost of the Spray bottle (purchased at Target) can be as inexpensive as $1 and the Essential Lavender Oil normally costs between $9.50 – $12.00. This is an approximate price so every area may be different. The Lavender 100% Pure Essential Oil – 1 fl Oz comes in a rather petite bottle, but it will last a while if you only use about 5 drops at a time.
I love making quick and easy hair buns when I’m just hanging around the house, when I’m doing school work, or either when I’m going to workout at the gym. Messy hair buns are quick and easy and it’s done in less than 2 minutes.
We should all have less than 2 minutes to make this quick bun and head out of the door. (No pun intended)

Please watch the video and we love your comments on how it worked for you or if you have any questions.
I’m often asked, and many people wonder “Is that YOUR hair?” I capitalized YOUR because I’m sure what they are really asking is
“Were you born with that hair, or is it store bought?”
Whether curly or straight it’s always the hair I was blessed and born with; even though, I don’t think highly of it as most people do. I’m often told since I was a little girl about what NOT to do with or to my hair.
never put a relaxer on my hair
Don’t put a flat iron on your hair
Never put a perm on my hair
don’t cut my hair
I heard about one lady, that told her father that my hair was “BOUGHT HAIR” LOL
The only time I have purchased hair was when I had Poetic Justice braids (See below) and that was to add more length and for the braids to last longer.

So, I’ve created this video below to show you that what you see is what you get. It’s all my God given hair. Sometimes I like it and Sometimes I don’t.
BTW: Thank you to my wonderful mom, Camilla, who’s been telling me I should create this blog to help people embrace and manage their curls. People always ask my mom what do I do to my keep my hair looking so nice, well here we go with some answers.
