This past Tuesday, I had the opportunity to attend Jill Scott's Summer Block Party featuring Anthony Hamilton, Mint Condition, DJ Jazzy Jeff & Dougie Fresh. I'm a huge Jill Scott & Anthony Hamilton fan and this concert did not disappoint. I would have liked to have seen a little more of Mint Condition, but what I saw was good! Anthony tore the house down and took us to church! Jill put on a great show as well. This woman's vocals are sick! I loved the format of the concert with the old school hip hop music between sets. They took us waaay back! Grown folks music ya'll!
I wanted to wear BIG hair for the concert so I decided to do a braidout. I knew we would be sitting outside in the evening so I decided to compare two products to see which would hold up to the humidity of the evening dew best. I used Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding on 3 sections and my shea butter mixture & Curls Goddess Curls Gel on 2. Though my hair was pretty much undefined when I got home (LOL), I would say that the shea butter & Curls Goddess Curls Gel held up better for the braid out. Check out the slide show below to see how I achieved the look above.

Here are some additional photos of a braid out I did Labor Day Weekend. I only used the shea butter & Curls Goddess Curls on this style & I rubbed a little Aveda Brilliant Anti-Humectant Pomade on it to keep the frizz causing humidity away. I loved the results!!
