    Twisted all over

    I haven’t been to the hair salon in ages, and was about to give in and make an appointment to get my hair twisted; then I thought to my self, “surely you can do this on your own”… and then I did. Twists are an awesome protective style, easy to do, they look super cute, and you can keep them in for a couple of days. YES. Pin them up, or just let em’ hang 🙂 I wasn’t sure how I would twist the back…but where there’s a will, and a couple bobby pins, there’s definitely a way 🙂 D.I.Y is truly the way to go 🙂 peace, love and…

    Fro Tales

    I was in the third month of my transition, and had reached the I’m-just-going-to-relax-it-and-forget-it stage. I hadn’t had a full head of hair in a long time, and resisting the urge to just shave it all off when it was driving me crazy wasn’t fun. Places that were once bare had hair. Growing out my hair cut, meant one section was longer than everywhere else; and after my big chop, it was bad… and it looked strange. I didn’t want to cut, relax or braid my hair, I just wanted to let it be… except “being” looked weird to me; I was totally losing it. Then I met this dread…

    The Awkward stage pt 2.

    I don’t wanna call it the “awkward stage” anymore… This is normal during the transitioning stage, and everything in life looks a little “different” during this process. I’d been shaving my head, or getting the growth in the sides “softened” for the last 3 years, so it’s been a while since I’ve had a full head of hair never mind natural hair. Did I mention that I’m also 100% free of any AND all processed hair? Yes. *taking a bow* I’ve been sticking to my routine of conditioning twice a week, moisturizing (religiously), spritzing, drinking LOTS of water, and trying so damn hard to eat healthy. Oh and reading up…

    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…

    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…

    (T.O.) Getting past the awkward stage…

    When I shaved off the back of my mow-hawk, I never once thought about what it would look like once I decided to let my hair grow back in. I was thrilled about making the decision to go natural and had no problems with cutting off what needed to go; but then my hair started to grow back. The last time I shaved the side and back of my head was about 6 weeks ago. I decided that I wanted to have a full head of beautiful natural hair, so the shaving had to stop. Everything was going well until about 2 weeks ago… Keeping the awkward stage under strict manners!…
