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

“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

Curlie Hair

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

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

Final Results from Nappturality 2008 BSL Challange

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. I didn’t even know if I could get there but I wanted to try. Well honestly, I … Continue reading

Herringbone Pony (Wow… I’ve hang time!)

My new signature do for the winter So I refreshed my do yesterday and to my surprise, I’ve really gained some more length. I’ve decided that my herringbone loose ponytail or chignon is going to be my signature do for the winter. So when I pulled my freshly done hair back into a ponytail, I … 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

A moment of silence please for my niece’s hair…

Her length totally bites the dust! First though, can we all just have a moment of silence as we mourn for my niece’s hair. Sadly, she’s at that age, where peer pressure and being very cute is much more important than protecting her length. Over the winter, I’d been noticing that her hair was looking shorter … Continue reading

Hair Boogers…Oh My!

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
