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.

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. 

Tips To Get Your Hair To Hang

8 Feb

So I personally have a hard time to get my curls to hang and this is because of length and my hair type but I wont be able to know for sure until I have at least APL length. Although I have trouble with getting my curls to hang does not mean I have heard so tips to take into consideration. I’ve heard tons of tips on how to get your curls to hang but since I;m in a protective styles all the time I’ve never tried it out. I will list some helpful tips I’ve heard on giving you hair some hang time.

1. clip your hair at the roots to get your hair to stay flat and not frizzy and rise towards the sun.

2. Where you two strand twist your hair really matters so try to twist your hair in the way you want your hair to hang.

3. Using heavy products can weigh down your hair and give your hair hang time

4. Putting rollers or perm rods at the ends of your hair weigh your hair down enough for your hair to stay down the whole day.

5. Wearing a scarf at night sets your hair in a down position so when you undo your twists/braids your style stay down.

These are some ways I’ve been told to get your curls to hang but if your curls don’t hang naturally then you have to manipulate your hair in some way whether it be a twist out or a braid out.

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?
