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.
1. How did you get started making handcrafted cosmetics?
I started handcrafting products early in my hair journey. For […]
I braided my hair for the summer. I needed a hairstyle that was convenient for my workout routine. I’m at the gym 4-5 times a week and I sweat a lot. I’ve been co-washing my hair after every gym day and shampooing on weekends. It just made sense to put in my mini braids. I […]
Hair vitamins are somehow becoming more and more popular. Competitors are still popping up. Manetabolism is a product from the Mane Choice product line owned by YouTuber- CourtneyNaturalHair. I was very skeptical about this one especially since it was started by someone on YouTube and her hair was already really long (without the use of […]
I braided my hair for the summer. I took a lot of pictures during the process and it’ll take a while for me to do a full write up. Here’s a picture of what they look like 1 week in.
I wrote in a post in January that I had some breakage at the crown of my head. The last 2-3 inches of hair in that area tapered significantly. I think the breakage was due to wear top knot buns every night and most days. I’d been trying not to wear any styles that could […]
This style took less than 5 minutes and most of that time was spent searching for bobby pins.
I made 3 large flat twists on my left side- from temple to ear. I folded the hair at the back up and pinned the twists in place. I took the remaining mini twists that […]
I think I bought this from Target or maybe Sally’s. I wanted to try it for a while but I could never find it in stock. Finally, when I wasn’t looking, I saw a jar and picked it up. I don’t remember the price. It was less than $10 for 4 ounces of product.
Save on $10 on a QRedew hair steamer with code SPRINGCLEAN. Hurry sale ends March 20, 2014.
I’m not sure if I’ll buy on but they don’t have sales often. This is a great time to purchase. I’ve seen really good reviews for QRedew.
I bought L’Oreal Total Repair 5 Damage-Erasing Balm at Wal-Mart. I think it was around $5. I was interested based on reviews on hair discussion boards. I also liked that the product contains ceramides- which are fatty molecules that help restore hair.
