It’s finally here! A video tutorial of how I do my mini braids. It’s hard to fit all the details in a short video, so my ebook is the best place to learn exactly how I maintain my hair in braids. Subscribe to my YouTube channel Thrifty Natural for more videos!
This is a big issue for me that I’ve yet to figure out. How should I wear my hair when I’m away from home and traveling? I feel like I’ve tried loads of different options. I’m a low maintenance girl, I stick with my typical styles. My main goal is to NOT have to do […]
I uploaded my first proper YouTube video!!! I’m blogging and making YouTube videos under my other brand Thrifty Natural. I’m still transitioning the blog to natural hair (not just braids) and beauty. The look of the blog will continue to evolve as I upgrade the brand and find my style. Please take a look […]
I was sent the Silk18 Natural Hair Conditioner with Shea Butter & Jojoba Oil by Maple Holistics for review. I’ve previously reviewed the Winter Blend Shampoo and Conditioner.
I was extremely (yes, extremely) eager to try this conditioner. The ingredients have everything that my hair loves and needs- silk […]
I was contacted by Maple Holistics to try out some of their products. I perused the webstore and picked out the Winter Blend Shampoo and Winter Blend Conditioner, the Silk 18 Conditioner and the Dead Sea Mud Mask. I’m going to split up the reviews for each product type. I’ve yet to […]

Click on the vendor names to visit their respective websites. I will be out of the country with limited time to use the internet while away. I’m […]
After I took out my mini braids, I tried out the Maximum Hydration Method. I don’t think I’d do it again because the whole process took far too long. What I did like about it was using the bentonite clay rinse as a last step (I usually use it first to cleanse my hair). […]
This is the last style diary photo set from my summer 2014 mini braids. I went to a friend’s birthday dinner and wore a lace skater dress. To complement the look, I wore my hair in a low bun with cornrows that were pinned at the back. This style was great to hide my frizzy […]
Yet another bun. I mostly pull my mini braids into a messy top knot bun, but if I’m going out, I go for something a bit more interesting. This particular night I made several large asymmetrical flat twists, then did a classic bun.
Recently, I had the opportunity to interview Renee Dawes, the creator and owner of NaturelleGrow– Healthy Hair Growth Products. The NaturelleGrow product lineup includes cleansers, conditioners, moisturizers, and growth oils and balms to meet your needs.
