    Missing the twist…

    I’ve had my braids in for over 6 weeks, and I’ve already decided what I’m going to do next. Can’t lie, I’m pretty excited, I love playing with my hair and I’ve been getting a little bored. Because I’m in a kitchen majority of the week, I always keep my hair in a bun… long story short, I missed being able to twist my hair so I started experimenting.

    I kinda dig it. So far I’ve twisted the front up and to the side… just seeing what works. If you have braids in your hair; try to have fun with them; experiment with different styles and remember to keep your scalp moisturized.

    Maintenance: Remember to drink lots of water, try your best to eat well, and keep the scalp healthy, clean and moisturized…oh and avoid tight hairstyles.

    So, to twist or not?

    What do you do to keep things interesting in the hair department?

    peace, love and health

    Braid it up!

    Tyra Banks worked the hell out of those cornrows!

    I’ve only had my braids in for a few weeks but I’m already excited to try a new style. I can’t wait until the hair in the back and sides is long enough to do cornrows! Here are some of the styles that I’m interested in trying.

    I love cornrows that start off thin at then get bigger as the braid goes on. I love this.
    I would get the entire back cornrowed up  like the sides versus having my hair cornrowed downwards… but I still dig it!
    I love the mix of big and small cornrows!
    I love this! I think this may be the winner…

    peace, love and health

    Upkeep…

    I wore my hair in braids for 2 years back in 2007 and 2008, and almost forgot just how much I enjoy it! I love having my hair in braids mainly because they’re so easy to maintain and it keeps me from effin around with my hair. I’m also glad to have one less thing to worry about when getting ready for work or school in the mornings!


    I like keeping my braids in a bun, as it keeps the hair neat, as well as keeps them from getting caught in or under anything… eek!
    My routine to keep my scalp clean and healthy consists of hot water, a face cloth, paltus/argan oil mix and braid spray. I simply wet the cloth, wipe my scalp, rinse, repeat until clean. After my scalp is clean, I oil it with the paltus/argan oil mix. I also use a braid spray as an everyday moisturizer for my scalp and hair.
    No harmful ingredients in here… well at least I didn’t see any on the label lol
    Before bed I spray my scalp with a homemade spritz, and cover my hair with a satin wrap. If you currently have braids, make sure you’re taking care of your scalp and hair the same way you would if you didn’t have braids. Avoid pulling the braids back into tight styles, and make sure to keep your scalp clean and moisturized. Oh and sleep with a satin wrap every night to keep braids fresh, and neat.

    peace, love and health
