How I Rock My Curls! {SUAVE Hair & Body Prod Giveaway!}

During a recent video shoot for the socially conscious and politically charged (and well-kwon) hip-hop group Dead Prez, I had to rock my natural hair --the premise of the song titled "Beautiful Thing." It was a miserably hot and humid day and all I could do was wish I had a scarf to pull my hair back with.

But, I was called out precisely because of the world of curls on my head so I had to bear the grunt of the sweat and no breeze. It all worked out and had a blast enjoying all the lovely natural hair the other women were showing off. I particularly love everything about this incredible shot captured by one of the photographers on set.

And the video trailer shows me whipping my hair (at :29) which was even more fun and allowed me to get my "Chelsea on!"

In the quest to maintain the curls looking fabulous when I do wear them out, I've come across a few select products that I can afford still keep the locks looking fresh. 

One of them is the deliciously smelling shampoo and conditioner by Suave Naturals® . Suave, right!?  What a throwback to the days of disco ball decked-out roller skating rinks and super high hair. It's been a mainstay in my bathroom, so when they launched their Juicy Green Apple line, I had to try it. Plus I'm a full-time chef and food writer, so anything food related tickles my fancy.

For my hair, I use a dollop of the conditioner to leave in followed by their Healthy Curls Crunchy Mousse. Looove.

Works like wonders for every day use, especially on humid a$$ days when wearing it straight is not even a thought -- all it'd do is get frizzy anyway.

To help celebrate the excitement of wrapping up the video shoot and in anticipation of a long summer of hot days, Suave and I are giving away a set of the yummy Juicy Green Apple shampoo and conditioner! Lather your lovely mane and show it off... even if you're a hat queen!

That's not it! With affordable hair care to tote to all your fetes, there's also creamy body wash and lotion that helps our mood and keeps us feeling ooh wee fresh throughout the day. Suave's Creamy Milk & Honey body wash and their Sweet Pea & Violet body lotion have made it to my overnight and large carry alls for the mini-vacay's and work trips I've been taking lately (because we all know hotel goodies seem to be watered down -- unless you're at the W ;).

And, I want you to have a full-sized set a of that, too!

Here are some deetz about the products for you to know.

My biggest hair challenge is definitely trying to tame my naturally curly locks. I put so much "stuff" in my hair, it isn't funny!

My biggest hair challenge is combatting single strand knots aka "fairy knots" in my hair. I have extremely kinky, curly, coily hair which makes it very easy to knot up even if I've detangled it. I follow you on Twitter (@AfroCurlyChick) and on Facebook (Janna 'Musiq' Bennett). Thanks for offering such a wonderful opportunity to win some neat products!:)

My biggest hair challenge is that the top part of my hair still likes to act like its permed so trying to find styles that hold well in the front can be an experience.

I liked you on FB Tiffany Owens but I don't have a twitter account :(
