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

“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

High Pony made with a Bandette Comb

Y’all I found a new hair accessory. Ok… it’s more of a tool than an accessory. I love it. I’ve actually been looking at this thing for YEARS but never could envision I to use it in my hair. Most likely cause I didn’t have enough length. But yesterday, I decided to buy it at … 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

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

Herringbone Chignon

  To create this do, each flat twist is criss crossed one by one on top of each other starting with the one in the very top. Once each twist is incorporated, I grabbed some of the flat twists in the back and started making a french braid. Then I stopped near the nape of … Continue reading

Hair Play Continued

Boy-o-boy! It’s been a long time since I’ve really played with my hair like this. When I first became a loose nappy, which was three years ago, I was like a kid in a candy store trying to learn how to care for and style my hair. Back then I had several hair goals; one … Continue reading

Hair Play

 I’ve been playing with my hair all weekend. Although there’s really nothing fancy about this, I love how my new slider barrette dresses up my hair. It’s soooo pretty. When I took my hair out of my bun, my twists were stretched. Love the length. As I look at this, I confirm it to myself … Continue reading

My twisted Pony

I’m on a roll so don’t stop me now. I haven’t been this ambitious about playing with my hair in a really long time. But I took my bun down a couple of hours ago and was having a hard time duplicating my effort. Kind of figured I would. Then a few minutes ago, I … Continue reading
