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

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

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

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.

Three-Strand Twistout (Best one I’ve ever had)

If you’ve been following my three-strand twist experiement, you’ll know that I found them cute but extremely difficult to do. My hands hurt for days. Plus they don’t look all that different from two strand twists…but you can tell the difference. Well anyway, I experienced the same amount of shrinkage even though they originally elongate … Continue reading

Flat Twist Half Bun with Decorative Hair Pins

This has turned out to be the first version of what has come to be my signature style. The first time I did my hair like this my sister took one look at my hair and exclaimed, “Your hair is really cute.” My niece and my mom enthusiastically confirmed that this was a really cute … Continue reading

Double Flat Twist Puff

 One of the main reasons I do such intricate flat twist style is because of my broken off hairline. As long as my hair is, my hairline prevents me from trying styles where I could just brush the top back. I shampooed last night but am not ready to do any intricate twist or flat twist hair … Continue reading

Slider Barrettes and Hair Clips

I’m always on the look out for nap friendly accessories. Upper left is what I call a slidder barrette for lack of a better term. I’m always looking for these types of barrettes. I don’t like hinged ones cause my hair always gets caught in the hinges and literally can be cut in half. I … Continue reading

Jumbo Flat Twist with Fake Pony (Back


Bun Accessory

Accessories I’ve been wearing this Flat Twist Half Bun all summer long. Gosh I love this style. All I do is restyle the top to give a different look. This past Sunday, I took the front down, brushed it real good to get rid of shed hair and then retwisted with all the parts originating from … Continue reading

Texture, Thickness and Density

 Just showing off the texture, thickness and density of my naps. The bun is secured with decorative bobby pins. The worked my last nerve though (sticking me in my scalp…never could wear bobby pins) so I had to find something different for everyday wear.
