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

Reader Question: Why do you use the word Nappy?

This doesn’t happen too often, but occasionally I get comments that question my use of the word nappy. Most recently, one of my readers, Mardi, left this comment, which I decided to address here. Q: Why is it that you call the hair on your head nappy. First you should change your lango and start maybe … 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

This morning, I was so tickled with how my hair came out after sleeping on flexirods all night that after I took them out at around 7 a.m. this morning, I just had to take a pic. Please forgive my sleepy looking self. I’m soooooo not a morning person so I think I pulled this … 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

Hair Boogers…Oh My!

What’s the worse mixture of products that you’ve ever put in your hair? Or the worse thing you’ve ever done to your hair? This is a question I posed to members of my hair board, cNappymeNow.com, which has become a thriving little community for women who want to celebrate, learn about and share their experiences … Continue reading
