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

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!

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

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

Merry Christmas everyone! Earlier this year, I started a BSL challenge on Nappturality cause I wanted some company on my quest to see my hair reach that lengh…a length that I’ve never, ever seen on my head before.

Twisted Apple Pony

Well my twists are getting really fuzzy and they’re really stretched out and looking kinda stringy so tonight I decided to see what a high pony might look like.

Classic French Roll

Here’s a classic french roll secured with a side comb. Not really sure how well I like this. I’d have to work on this do a little more, even with the decorative side comb, it still seems rather plain Jane to me. But I think if I needed to do something with my hair in … Continue reading

Nappy Niece Updates

For sure my niece has no hangups about nappy hair. None. She has her moments when she wants to see it straight. And honestly, I think her other auntie who braids her hair on a regular basis presses her hair out before she braids it so I think she’s getting her straight fix that way. … Continue reading
