Natural Hair: Curly Twistout

Hello Lovelies!

I wanted to share a go-to hairstyle that I use quite frequently on my hair.  It’s the curly twistout.  I simply twist my hair into two strand twist then roll my hair with these wave rod rollers (pictured below).

I keep the rods in over night.  I really like the body and curls that my hair have if my hair is completely dry.

I have a few pics of my hair at different times.

My Favorite Fashions From The NAACP Image Awards

Hey lovelies!
I just had to share my favorite five gowns I seen at the 46th NAACP Image Awards on Friday February 6th.  I will list my favorite look and work my way down.

1.  Tracee Ellis Ross
I am soooo loving Tracee’s gown and her total look.  I love the lace detail because it’s soft and feminine.  It was curve hugging with a plunging neckline. She was gorgeous.  I love to see women embrace their curves.  The gown flowed when she walked.  You had to see it in action.  Her natural curls were beautiful and her makeup was simple. Tracee is my favorite fashion inspiration.  By the way, she won best comedic actress for her role in one of my newest favorite  television shows Blackish.

2. Angela Bassett
When Ms. Bassett walked on the stage, she was welcomed with a standing ovation.  She looked so regal, confident, and ageless.  She was stunning.  She makes me look forward to being 56 years old.  Angela’s gown and hair was flawless.  Cheers to being fabulous over 50!

3. Teyonah Parris
I saw this look on the red carpet and saw how beautiful it was.  I love how the neutral color, lace, embellishments create a soft, feminine look.  I love the form fit of the gown with the sheer skirt.  I like that Teyonah embraces her kinky natural hair when she’s on the red carpet.

4.  Gabrielle Union
Gabby also wore a neutral gown with the back out.  This look is different from what I normally see Ms. Union usually wear, but I like it.

Honorable Mention: Kerry Washington
I really like Kerry Washington because she’s a natural beauty.  Her style is very classy and sleek.  I love this red lace gown Kerry wore.  It was simple yet beautiful.

I Cut My Hair

image

I have contemplated on doing a major trim to my hair. I have been growing my natural hair out for about 3 and half years and I have cut and trimmed along the way. I have gone through a lot of stressful things within the past two years and it has taken a toll on my hair. I will share more later.

I taken care of hair through proper care…conditioning and moisturizing. However stress has affected my hair and skin. I previously moved from an area where the water was hard and awful on my hair. So, I am back home where the water is better and I am managing my stress more effectively.

My cut was needed and I am looking forward to growing and nursing hair my back to health. I will be updating my regime and products.
