Throwback Thursday

One thing I love about having a personal blog is that I can look back at past hairstyles, regimens, etc. 

For today's Throwback Thursday, I decided to post how my hair looked in March 2011 and 2012. 

Braid-outs and turquoise/teal  seem to be the theme.

Wash Night- The Final Result

I know, I know...another puff?!?! Well, if y'all read my last post and saw the trial styles..you should understand why I am sticking to this for now. 

If you follow me on Twitter(which you should!), you would have seen my tweet about not caring about curl definition. I really don't, which explains this puff. I like my hair this way and chances of me TRYING to define my curls are very slim. 
If I do make posts about it, it will be for y'all only... to show "how to do it".

Wash Night!

Hey Hey Hey!!

Last night while everyone was partying it up, guess what I was doing?? Yup you got it, washing and setting my hair. I actually enjoyed having a night in though. These last few months have been crazy for me!

Ok..before I start rambling, let me jump right in to my wash night.

7 Reasons Why I Love Short Hair

I chose to do a long term transition because I never wanted to have short hair again.
But then I grew madly in love with my natural hair and said, “Bump that!”. Hair grows..it’s constantly growing and my hair will be even longer than before. So why not enjoy this new found length?

So, what do I like about having short hair?

Twist It Up Twist It Up!

Hey Ladies and Gents! ;-) 



I have received MANY questions about twists on relaxed or transitioning hair. 
So, I decided to do a quick post on it. 

Now you all know that twists were my signature transitioning style. I wore them about 90% of the time to minimize manipulation and keep my hair tangle free. 

On to my tips..

Length Check: 15.75 Months Post Relaxer

Hey Ladies! 

I said I wasn't going to focus on length and I won't. I decided to do a length check to remember where I started later on down the line. Also, when transitioning, I would watch so many length check videos to have an idea of where my hair might be after X amount of months. I know we all have different growth rates and body shapes, but it still helped me. 

So...here it is.

Oldies but Goodies!

Hey, Hey, Hey!

So I'm going through that dreaded "dry" phase after the big chop. Although my hair is in chunky twists, I can still feel that my hair is drier than the Sahara(no matter how much I moisturize it)

Instead of purchasing a bunch of hair products that I am not yet familiar with, I decided to go back to what worked best.  
I have used everything pictured and being a former relaxer stretcher(and long term transitioner), I grew to learn what worked well on my natural hair. 


Keep on reading if you're interested in seeing what I purchased.

Okay..now on to my hurr.

Review: Taliah Waajid- The Great Detangler

As you all know, I purchased this product about 2 weeks ago. Since then, I have used it on my twists, to detangle when I took them out and on my loose hair. 

It honestly doesn't take me a while to figure out if I like a product or not, so I decided to come on here and give you all my opinion on it. 

If you're interested in The Great Detangler then keep on reading.
