Review Update: Urban Therapy’s Twisted Sista Curl Activator

My verdict: I’m neutral. My hair, when clean, totally dry and product free looks like and feels like dry fire wood. As a result, after I wash, I usually have to apply moisturizer to my hair very generously. A good moisturizer, after it dries to the touch (but is still slightly moist throughout) should leave my hair looking … Continue reading

Miss Jessie’s Curly Meringue Product Review

Impulse Buy After more than four years of swearing by my cheapie Proline moisturizer, I can’t believe I actually broke down and purchased a Miss Jessie’s product — the Curly Meringue. It was an absolute impulse buy. I was at Target last night and was on my way to the checkout when I spotted the … Continue reading

The look on my face says it all

This is soooooo why I hate wearing my hair loose. This, I think was due to my carelessness when I was trying to take the band out. I ended up having to just break the knots out. I was not a happy camper. But let me back up a little. Every year, about once a … Continue reading

Save your ends with a beautiful Faux Puff!

Faux Puff Instead of two ponytails tucked under, I’ve made six. One in the top and two on the sides. One in the middle. And two made from the nape up. They’re tucked under into the elastic band and converge in the back. Then I have one band around all of them, which pulls them together … Continue reading

My First Braidout!

Ok…this is a little misleading, cause it’s not like I wore my hair like this anywhere. I was taking my hair down from my box braids this afternoon in preparation for washing my hair and I thought my hair looked kinda cute. Well, really cute. So of course I broke out the camera. Although I’m … Continue reading

Double Braided Bun

Box braids: Week 8/Approximately 4 months to go… Ok… I keep looking for creative ways to keep my do interesting and creative ways to tuck away my ends. This weekend, I experimented with a lot of different ways to wear a ponytail. I’ve tried a high pony and tucked under ends. Didn’t like it. I’ve … Continue reading

Box Braids Revisited

Y’all might remember my first attempt at doing and wearing box braids. Did these (picture right) back in May. My intent was to do something similar to what T’Keyah Crystal Kemah does with her hair when she wears box braids. You know, the actress who played the mom in That’s So Raven and was also a Fly … Continue reading

Crimped Bob… Pleasantly Surprised

All this week, I have been wearing my twists back into a french braid and tucked under. It’s ironic that forever, all I ever wanted was for my shrunken twists to sit on my shoulders. Now that they can, I don’t want my ends rubbing against my clothes like that. In addition to that, I … Continue reading

New Lengths

Ok… this was a really fun discovery, to find out that my length in the top is longer than my forearm. I’ve only ever dreamed of this length and wow… here it is. I am starting to find that I cannot style touch up my full head of twists in one sitting anymore. It just … Continue reading

“Nice hair…Is it real?” Oh…and Carol’s Daughter!

  Friday after work, I called one of my best girls to see if she felt like hanging out after work. Gwen said she was game so I suggest Red Lobster for dinner. Since we both had things to do, we decided we’d meet at about 6:30 p.m. That later got pushed back to 7 and that’s … Continue reading

Swooped Updo

Here’s a do I came up with today and I actually tried a different moisturizer too. It’s called Texture My Way Curl Keeper Moisturizer Lotion. It’s made by Nature’s Best and is in their Organic’s line. So far I like it. It’s very similar to Proline’s Softener product, which I love but won’t use because it … Continue reading

Yet Another Ponytail

Been ‘sperimenting again. This time I was going for that “bump” in the top that is so popular these days. I think I succeeded in getting the look that I was attempting to create. But in looking at my pics I can see that my twists are starting to look rather stringy and I know … Continue reading

Side Pony Made with a Bandette Comb

Ok… here’s my second tutorial with this gem of a comb. In this one I’m demonstrating how to make a side ponytail. It’s really quick and simple. Enjoy!  Step 1 Anchor the bandette comb on the side of your head.

More Ponytails

Last night, I pulled my hair into a ponytail and put in six flexirods. The curls were soooo cute when I first took them out, but by the time I’d gotten to work, they’d all fallen. Guess I’m going to have to use something to set them with. I’m almost certain plain water will work. … Continue reading

COLOR! I Finally Love It!

Six months after my last attempt to cover my gray with some color, I finally got around to touching up my roots. Only this time, I can’t exactly call it my roots can I when I had more than 2+ inches of new growth. I waited so long for a couple of reasons. One, I’m … Continue reading
