“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.

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
