While there is nothing wrong with styling your natural curls, the constant brushing, combing, and styling can take a toll on your kinks. Over time, you can start to notice your hair breaking off at the ends, your edges or hairline thinning, and the overall quality of your hair diminishing. Staying on top the health of your hair with regular maintenance is a great starting point to avoid breakage. However, it doesn’t stop there. Protective styling is an effective way to keep your hair strong while maintaining length retention and promoting thicker strands. By cutting down the daily manipulation and styling of your natural curls, you will support…

Hey Folks!! I had the opportunity to be a guest blogger on site Neno Natural this week!  I was featured on there before as a Queen of Kinks.  I’d love for you all check out the article in the link below.  If you had a chance to catch me on People Passion Politics with Host Robert Patillo, we had an extensive conversation about issues people have with black hair!  Let me know what think!

Be it Summer or Winter, our hair seems to crave moisture! AND….the tighter the curl, the more moisture you need. For me, it seems that my hair can never get enough, so today I’m sharing my top fave ways to get and retain moisture. These are in no particular order because all of them are important!!! 1. Use moisturizing products.  I love products that are water based and moisture rich!  And for me, it begins with my shampoo.  I use a clarifying shampoo to clean my scalp and remove product from my strands as well as moisturizing shampoo.  Clean hair ensures that I am giving my hair the best possible chance to receive moisture.  Using hair lotions/moisturizers and butters or oil to seal in moisture, give me the the upper hand in the battle of dry hair! 2. Deep condition (more often)!  I love my deep conditioners!  They are such…

My first official post of the new year!!!!  I’m so excited!!  Well, let’s jump right in! For about a month and a half, I’ve been taking the Manechoice Manetabolism Plus Vitamins.  Not only are they hair vitamins, but they are a full blown multivitamin!!  You get the best of both worlds with these pills.   I wanted to try the vitamins and track my hair growth to see how well they worked in comparison to other vitamins that I have tried in the past.    So far, I am please and you will see why shortly. What sold me on purchasing this company’s vitamins versus others was that the is a Black Female-owned company!!  Take a look at my hair history, beginning length, and my 1 month update in the video below!  Under the video are side-by-side pics to show you the growth.  Tell me what you think! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pOaoua5YuNs

I’m a firm believer that everyone goes through a period of boredom with their hair.  I’ve been bored for well over a year!  I had been toying with the idea of coloring my hair, but because we got pregnant, I was told that I should wait if I was worried about breathing in too many chemicals.  And so, I waited…an extra 9 months!!! Once my son was born, I thought nothing of coloring my hair.  I just wanted to sleep at night and keep my hair out of his face.  So for the most part, since he’s been born, it’s been up and out of the way, be it styled or uncouth lol! Looking through instagram a couple weeks ago, my stylist Codie of Loop Salon posted a pic requesting a hair model!  Loop Salon holds classes for their stylists to keep them fresh and educated on all things hair…

Afternoon friends!! Just wanted to share my latest video with you all!!  I’ve been rocking curls lately and they have garnered many questions.  I decided to shoot my first video of the year featuring a style that you will see quite often from me: perm rod curls.  These curls are fairly simple to achieve, are not very time consuming to do, and last a week or more!! If you have any product questions feel free to drop them below or comment on my video!! Happy Curling Ladies!!
