So for those of you who follow my blog, you know that I switch up my hairstyles quite often. So, I have been wearing a crochet protective style to protect my hair and it’s super convenient. I love the big hair but it’s too hot in Tennessee and I’m itching to try something new. So, I cut my protective style into a bob. This has allowed me to have a new hairstyle without having to cut my real hair and continue to protect it for a while longer.
What do you think?
Talk to you soon, loves! Happy weekend 🙂
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.
Thanks for reading!

Talk to you soon,
Hello lovelies! Jessica and I went to Atlanta this past weekend to attend the annual World Natural Hair Show. It was a really exciting experience to see so many women rocking their natural hair in afros, twist outs, wash-n-gos, braids, and other styles. There were other vloggers and bloggers there.
I had the opportunity to meet one of my favorite YouTube vloggers Toni Daley (tonidaley.com.) I was super excited to meet her and support your business.
Toni and I
Here’s what I got from Toni:
Africa shaped earrings
Purple head wrap
Jessica got puzzle earrings
I also got some mugs from an artist called Twisted Cheri. She makes posters and drawings of African-American women. www.twistedcheri.com
Our really cute mugs
Here are one of the pics Cheri created
I also got a chance to support other business and I got a chance to stock up on some hair and skin care products.
I got three tubs of natural, unrefined shea butter for a really great price.
I got tons of samples.
This is black soap I use on my skin. One of my favorites.
Wooden colored earrings
I was at the social media center
Jessica got some black soap
I started using some products from the Cantu Shea Butter for Natural Hair Line back in November of 2014 after I cut my hair. I am actually impressed with all of the products that I have used, because I have tried other natural hair care product lines and was under-whelmed with some of the products. This hair care line advertises for not using chemicals with sulfates (harsh soap), silicones (coats hair strands), parabens (preservative), and mineral oil (heavy oil). I will briefly review each product.
The sulfate-free cleansing shampoo is great. It removes buildup and cleans my hair without my hair feeling stripped or dry. One thing that I noticed about this shampoo is that my hair had curl definition.
I like the conditioner because my hair feels really soft and manageable. I like to sit under my bonnet dryer so that the conditioner can penetrate my hair shafts.
I really like this leave-in conditioner. It’s thick and creamy. It keeps my curls defined when I do my twist outs. I like to use it as a daily moisturizer when my hair feels dry.
I really like this co-wash. It does a great job cleaning and conditioning my hair at the same time. What I normally do is massage the co-washing on my scalp and hair then rinse it out as a shampoo. Then, I put some more on my hair for a few minutes for some conditioning. I rinse it out, put some leave-in conditioner in, and style. This co-wash is great! I was really impressed.
Be on the look out for more product reviews and hair care tip!
Good morning everyone!
It seems like I haven’t done a post in a while. I love conditioning my hair. It’s vital in keeping my hair strong and healthy. I wanted to share a simple natural conditioner I used on my hair using an avocado, a ripe banana, and extra virgin olive oil. According to beautyandtips.com, avocado has a lot of health and beauty benefits. It helps with dandruff, dry scalp, frizz control, and other hair and scalp issues. Bananas have very similar benefits for hair and scalp issues as avocado. Bananas help with split-ends, moisture retention, and protecting hair elasticity (blackhair101.com).
Here are my ingredients:
I bought a soft avocado and I let a banana get ripe. It’s easier to mix if both are soft.
I didn’t measure the extra virgin olive oil. I added quite a bit to help mix the avocado and banana.
Here’s The final mix.
I had the conditioner on my hair for about an hour. I sat under my bonnet dryer for about 15 minutes for a deeper conditioning.
My hair felt soft and it was fairly easy to detangle my hair. My curls and coils were springy and defined which is something I look for when caring for my hair.
Here’s my hair. There are pieces of avocado and banana in my hair.
Next time, I’ll use a blender or mixer instead of a whisk and masher. I hope this was helpful!
I’ll be chatting with you soon;-)
