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!

Cantu Shea butter leave in conditioning repair cream

13 Mar

Cantu Shea butter claim the product will leave u with soft, shiny and manageable hair…… And so it did! Not only did this product live up to its claim It can be used by so many hair types for several different styles. People can use this product for a braid out, twist out, Bantu knot out and for a east detangling session. This product is on my favorites list for my type 4 thick hair. I will most defiantly be making more post on the different way I use this product. For now in my hair journey this 16 oz. jar of smell good leave in will be around for a while.

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.

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? 

Deep conditioning???

5 Feb

OK, since honesty is the best policy I’m going to start off by saying I don’t deep condition as often as I should 😦 i know its terrible but i often do think about it but when i do DC my hair comes out incredibly soft and moisturized it makes me think about why I don’t do it. This is why I’m writing this post to tell you guys how i get really soft protein filled hair!(hopefully I can start taking my own DC’ing advice)

Ingredients:

4 tbs of EVOO

2 tbs of pure honey

1 tbs of coconut oil(can change amount depends on you)

Instructions:

place the coconut oil, honey and EVOO in a small cup and place the cup in a large bowl of hot water. Allow the cup to sit in the water for a few minutes. Until the mixture is warm. Pour the mix onto freshly washed hair but towel blotted hair. THen put on a shower cap and wrap with a towel to prevent the mix from dripping. Let the mix sit in your hair for 20 min + then wash hair thoroughly with cold water( IMPORTANT!!!!!)
