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…

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!!

Happy Sunday Folks!! I am here with a treat for you! As many of you know, I LOVE hair flowers! My collection is endless, and when I was contacted by Fatima of Flower From Fatima, I was EXTREMELY excited!

Alone, my family and I transformed the neighborhood into a paradise. We…

As many of you know, I am a DIE-HARD CurlBOX supporter! Every since I could get on the (which like many of you took some time), I have faithfully been charged $20 a month and received an amazing curlBOX full of all kinds of delicious goodies for my hair! I’ve received 8 boxes (July to February), in addition to shopping the cB Black Friday Sale. Within that time I am proud to say that I have found soooooo many products that I LOVE. These are products that I will purchase after I run out vs. waiting on my next box to see what new items I will get, so… I canceled my subscription to curlBOX. I firmly believe that this company is about helping women of color try the best products out there for our hair, whether relaxed or natural. But, it is also about helping you find what works…

Hello everybody!! I trust that you all had a very happy Thanksgiving! I enjoyed spending the quality time with both side of my family under one roof! We played games, watched the game, ate, laughed, slept…it was wonderful. Anywho…this past weekend I had the pleasure of doing my first tutorial for my Thanksgiving hairstyle, the Twisted Bantu Knot-Out. I received so many good comments and so much feedback from this hairstyle. Everyone was asking how I did it and what I used. At the time, I didn’t think to make a video for it. Then, on Black Friday, I had the opportunity to attend the curlBOX Black Friday Sale. That sale was MONSTROUS!!! And I mean that. I received over 13 FULL-SIZED PRODUCTS plus samples all for the price of the monthly curlBOX – $20! It was at the event, where I receive even more comments from ladies at the event about…

I really did. and the rest was history…. This past Sunday me, CharyJay, and Ebony were at Beya Salon Studios for the curlBox Holiday shoot for the December mimi mag! Call time 10 am! 9:45am – I arrive and struggle to figure out how to get into the building (mostly me), along with the videographer and his assistant. The we realize one door is locked and the other is not…guess which door I pulled on…. 10:00am – Ebony arrives….my goodness she’s pretty! Danielle (hair stylist) arrives – she my homie! 10:30am – Myleik arrives with Chary (she drips with swag) and the fun begins. Malika (make-up) arrives as well! She had on these black sequin pants that were…
