I’ve been maintaining my niece’s natural hair since she was around 2 years old. She’s turning 7 in August. Her hair is very kinky, with no visible curl pattern (4b/4c). She stays in protective styles pretty much year round. Her mom did her last few styles which were about 10-15 braids with ponytail holders at […]
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 […]
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.
This product smells […]
I live in Florida, so I use the term “winter” lightly. I’m digging my wash and go with Original Moxie Moisture Gel and Shape Shifter under EcoStyler gel. This is 2nd day, unstretched hair. I’ll use a blow dryer to stretch the roots in the morning for big day 3 hair. 🙂
I was graciously gifted these Original Moxie products for review.
This is my first time using a no foam cleanser with a conditioner-like consistency. It will take some getting used to. I probably used way too much of this. I think in the future, I will dilute […]
I’ve written many times about how important it is to braid the length of a braid tightly. I realize some braiders have a technique that does not allow them to braid tight enough for the braids (big or mini) to last a long time. I think technique is also the key to braidouts with good […]
I bought a small jar of Kinky Curly Custard from Target forever ago and I have yet to finish it. My opinion of this product wavers. I also purchased the Kinky Curly Knot Today leave-in at the same time. I’ve used the custard with and without the leave-in underneath.
The smell is really […]
I’ve used this product for about 11 years now. Back in the day, cholesterol was all this relaxed head knew about deep treatments. I washed, conditioned and occasionally used this to deep condition (DC) because I did turrible, yes tUrrible stuff to my hair…like pouring peroxide and lemon juice all over it and overlapping […]
This time around I braided […]
