Using Up Your Stash: Yay or Nay?

So, I was talking to my cousin a few days ago and her hair problems and concerns are the same as many people I have spoken to over the past few months. Many I know want to do good styles AND take very good of their hair, but the PJ life caught up to them … Continue reading

Henna Day

So, maybe a little over a month ago, I did a rinse with Bigen I believe (you know, with the many things I shouldn’t remember or amazed that I remember, my short term memory has a permanent residence in shitsville). While looking do a rinse, I really wanted Surya henna Creme but that stuff is … Continue reading

A Week Later….

   So this was me a week ago. Remember I used the Design Essentials Honey Curling Custard and the KeraVada Kera10 Leave In. This was last Friday at work.    This picture was taken this morning. I touched up with the twist twice, but never added more product. Even without twisting, the style still lasted. … Continue reading

Straightening and Natural Hair

So, these past few years, I’ve really been trying to learn more about heat straightening natural hair as it’s something that is important to, in the least, understand. Now, you may go to a professional and that’s ok, but just because someone charges for a service and can lay down some hair, that does not … Continue reading

Revisiting Products 

So with the mini chop came a chance to revisit old products. My last wash day, I decided that shampooing was just the most and that I wanted to try omitting it again. Still on the fence with that but I tried my Wen again. I simply put enough to coat the hair, scrub as … Continue reading

Salon Day

So after I came home from the hospital, I was a hot ass mess. I mean hotter than hot. I looked like something out of The Color Purple who met Side Show Bob’s stylist and slept with Meg Griffin. I was too swollen and my back and leg pain from the epidural was unbearable. Standing … Continue reading

Flat Ironing: I Ponder…..

As I lay here 8 months pregnant and frustrated with doing my hair, I think of something that will keep water off my head and manipulation as low as possible. My wash days are dreaded because I can’t bend over, I almost cut all my hair off just to avoid having to be bothered and … Continue reading

Things I Learned From Dominican Salons

Trust when I say you couldn’t get me at one time to not swear by a Dominican salon. In New York where they are literally a dime a dozen (I have 7 within a 10 minute walk radius) that’s all there is and that’s all most know. Meanwhile only two black stylist within that radius. … Continue reading

Faux Fro

My twist out was an epic fail. It didn’t set well because it was too wet. I managed to get it up into something but it wasn’t great. The next night, I wasn’t feeling to well so I just slept in the up do (big nono). Last night, I was able to re-twist, but it … Continue reading
