Another hair goal of mines!!!

17 Mar

I know you guys must be tired of me talking about 2014 as the year of opportunity… Hair opportunity but I really think this year will be a great year! I know many natural don’t really like to set a goal for themselves because if they don’t eat to a certain length they get disappointed but I like setting goals for my self, I like to be disappointed it makes me push harder for what I want. The picture I attached to this post was a picture I saw on insta and tumblr and I couldn’t help to love everything about the picture. Her hair was what I loved the most and I’ve decided this is my hair length goal for this year. With a lot of deep conditioning, sealing and sprinting with water I’m sure I can make it there! Wish me luck guys 🙂

I LOVE TWO-STRAND TWISTS!!!!! pt. 1

12 Feb

As you can see from the title I love two-strand twists. There are endless amount of reasons why I love two strand twists but the number one reason I love two strand twists so dearly is that you retain so much length when you do them. When your hair is in this protective style it is protected and is not manipulated often. The reason why natural hair doesn’t grow is that naturals manipulate their hair so much it leads to a mass amount of breakage. Although length retention is a great plus on keeping your hair in two strand twists the health of your hair is very important. When your hair is in two strand twists it’s easier to moisturize your hair and make sure your ends are moisturized. You can easily seal your hair in this protective style as often as you like and while your at it you can dust your ends.

Moisture Mix

8 Feb

So I currently have medium sized, MBL box braids and their so fun to have. The creative styles are endless but under they faux hair lies   my hair that I still have to take care of if i want to retain length. How I take care of my hair with box braids is really short and simple to do all you need is a empty spray bottle that you can put olive oil, shea butter, leave-in and water in. These four ingredients is the reason why my hair is so moisturized and smells amazing (LOL). A good thing about including the shea butter is that it makes my faux and real hair have shine which is hard to keep after having braids for about one month. I’ve had my hair braid since January 1 2013 and I can say now on February  8 2013 I have a little over an inch of new hair growth!!!!!!!!!!!! I can recommend this mix to anyone who wants to moisturize their hair in protective styles or moisturize their hair with something regularly that smells good and keep hair manageable.

Moisture mix:

30% water

40% olive oil

20% shea butter

10% leave in

Try it its certainly worth it! Tell me if this mix work well for you and/or if you have another Moisture Mix you would like to tell me about?
