The Month of April

4 Apr

There is so many exciting things about April! For one on April 20 I big chopped and it will be my 1 year anniversary! If you have read my previous post you know I currently have kinky twists in so this is the month I will undo the kinky twists at the end if April. Because I have had my kinky twists since Feb. 18 I will have a lot of new growth and that means new styles I can try! In one of my previous post I made a list of all the styles I want to try before the year ends and when I try everyone on my list I will protective style for the remaining time (maybe). With over 20 styles I wanna try I will be very busy through April especially because I have a wedding to go to and a week long camping trip! Lol #busy but I hope you can be able to keep up and I hope I can post a lot during this month! Have a great day!

Deep conditions with braids

18 Mar

Protective styles are great to use when you want to grow your hair and prevent breakage but protective styles can actually mess up your hair if not taken care of correctly. For one, you shouldn’t chafe your hair regimen just because you have a protective style in. Being consistent really matter when it come to hair. One thing on your regimen. That shouldn’t change is wash day! My wash day is every Sunday like many naturals and what I love to do is deep condition. When I deep condition in braids I make sure I start at the scalp n and work my way down. After that I make sure I put deep conditioner on every inch of my individual braids because I don’t want to miss anything(wastes product but better safe then sorry). Enough of me rambling I am going to tell you how I make my smell good conditioning mix.

Materials:
Cantu Shea butter leave in repair cream
Extrav Virgin Olive Oil(EVOO)
Conditioner(your fav that puts in moisture in your hair)
Plastic fork
Bowl/cup

Instructions:
First mix the cantu Shea butter and EVOO in a container and mix until the mix starts to look like yogurt. After that put in your favorite conditioner and mix until its as thick as you want it then add your favorite oil(mine is coconut oil). After that continue to mix and let for about 5 min. While you separate your hair. Then take the fork you used to mix the ingredients together and apply the mix on to your finger tips then apply to scalp in each section. Do that in each section the take remaining conditioner and apply it to your braids from the root to the tip(or where your hair stops). Keep the mix in you hair for as long as you want, the minimum be 30 min, then rinse out and rub the tips of your finger on your scalp to assure you get all the build up of your scalp.

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 ­čÖé

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*

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*

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┬ádefinitely┬ánatural 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 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
