Protective hairstyle care????

27 Feb

Hey ya’ll I feel like I haven’t written a post in forever but I had to tell my followers how I take care of my hair in extensions.

I know a lot of blog try to make taking care of braid extensions harder than what it really is. I know this because I have been getting my hair braided since I was 5 so I have years of experience. What I do is spray my scalp with African braid sheen that can be purchased at Walmart for about $3.00. Other than spraying my hair with African pride braid sheen I condition my hair twice a month and try my best to get my edges done every 3 weeks. Taking care of braid extensions isn’t as hard as other blogs make it! It’s called a no to low manipulation style for a reason. I will soon make a new post on how I wash my hair and add some pictures on how the process looks like. Other then that hope you have a good day and please feel free to comment.

Get featured?!?!

21 Feb

I love blogging about hair but the only problem is I have just two hair types and their a lot more than that! The reason this bothers me is that I would like to relate to any type of natural and since I cant (because I don’t have type 3 or 4a hair) I would love for people to take my place and featured on the blog. It’s okay if your hair is 4b/c because everyone has different ways of taking care of their hair.

How to be featured?:

1. When did you BC or have you been natural all your life?

2. What is your hair type and some do’s and dont’s you’ve learned about your hair type along the way?

3. What does wash day look like for you?

4. what are your favorite hairstyles that are quick and easy to do?

5. How do you handle your hair in the morning before school/work?

6. what do you love about being natural?

*Then send a picture of your hair and you will be featured within 48 hours of sending me information*

4b/4c vloggers!!!!!!!!!!

16 Feb

Having 4b/4c hair can be very frustrating sometimes especially when your newly natural and you have no idea to do with your tight curls. Here is a list of Vloggers that I love and go to for inspiration ALL the time.

*Also keep in mind that someone doesn’t have to have your same hair type for you to know how to handle and moisturize your hair, everyones different*

VLOGGERS!

– glamfun

I love her so much she is so funny and is nothing but honest! 

– 4cHairChick

She has lots of experience and is very helpful with tips and styling products recommendations. 

-Dawnyele

She was the reason why I didn’t stop my natural hair journey, she was always committed to putting up videos on videos on Youtube and she always share her trials and Eros and her success. Although she is no longer with us, she is a¬†definitely¬†natural hair inspiration of my for not only 4c hair but natural hair.

-Joulezy

OMG! Joulezy is who I got to when I think that 4c hair cant be defined! She has so many cool tips on bringing out your natural hair pattern or even making different curl patters with rollers, perm rods and curl formers!

-IKnowLee

The first person I saw on youtube and the first person I went to when I just big chopped. She is so knowledgeable and is very helpful with tips on styling and creating looks that people think that type 4 hair can never do. Although I’m nt sure what she places herself on a hair typing chart she looks like a 4b/ 4c to me.

 

These are My top 5 natural vloggers but trust me there’s a lot of other Vloggers I love and have learned a ton about with type 3 curls !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Night time wash routine with two strand twists

14 Feb

If you’ve been reading some of my blogs you can make the conclusion that I’m CRAZY ABOUT PROTECTIVE STYLING! In this post I’m going to tell you how I wash my two strand twists so it feels and looks good.¬†

Materials: 

conditioner(any choice)

Bobby pins(optional) 

leave in(any choice)

Old T- shirt( optional) 

Instructions: 

After gathering all your materials step in the shower with your favorite moisturizing conditioner. distribute conditioner throughout your hair until there is conditioner everywhere. After doing that rinse about 90% of conditioner out of your hair then step out of the shower and wrap your hair with an old t-shirt(better to use a t-shirt than towel). About 20 minutes later take your shirt off your head and apply leave in conditioner on your hair making it softer and more manageable. Last step, is to place booby pins at the root of your( in the front of your hair) this makes the twists lay down and look less frizzy at the roots) . This is how I wash my hair during the week at night. 

I LOVE TWO STRAND TWISTS!!!!! pt. 2

12 Feb

Like I said in my previous post I love, LOVE, LOVE two strand twists! Two strand twists are stylish and fun to mess around with especially because this is one of the times you can mess around with your hair and not over manipulate it. The possibilities are endless with the styles you can do with your twists. For example if you want to do a stylish up-do for your prom, wedding or a very important even you can pin up your twists and add hair accessories. Last but not least when I do two strand twists I keep them in for at least a week which is very helpful because I don’t have to wake up early in the morning just to do my hair. The reason I listed are reason why I believe I’m in LOVE with two strand twist.

Tell me what you think about two strand twists and I will be making a post soon on how I maintain my twists!
