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!

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. 

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? 

Apple Cider Vinegar

8 Feb

Apple cider vinegar A.K.A ACV should be in every naturals cabinet  heres a list on why and by the end of reading my reasons if you don’t agree with me or not convinced you can email me so we can talk about it.

– Dandruff and itchiness can be cured by using ACV

– ACV is a great at cleansing the scalp, gets rid of build up instantly

-Have head lice? Use ACV to cure it

-If your hair is damaged and the cuticles are upraised, an acid rinse could be help them to lay flatter and therefore improving shine and detangle-ability

-After using ACV your hair is easier to detangle

– Hair is silky and soft and retains a lot on volume

So Tell me why you shouldn’t give this a try on your upcoming wash day… it wont hurt????
