Black lace + loc knots + sequins

On Friday, the Hubby, my sister-in-law, KT, and I attended a birthday party for the father of a close friend. I’ll be honest, I don’t get to dress up often. I push to wear makeup once a week: Sundays for church. I may dash something on my face during the week if I’m doing more…

Sigh

Ok. I owe pictures of my hair. I owe product reviews of products I bought donkey years ago. But, folks, my mind is clouded. Should I go ahead with my locs or just should I cut it all off? My reasoning: my hair just isn’t feeling right. Not “oh, I need a protein treatment” wrong,…

Of my kinky twists! LOL! Now to play around in my loose natural hair until my March 14th appointment for my locs 🙂 Stay tuned for pictures!

Hair updates!!!

It’s been a LONG time since I did a formal hair update, so I have plenty to write about! OK, so the last time I updated you was in June… shoot, that’s like six months ago! Good grief! Let’s get started. A year of twists and flaky scalp issues. I mentioned in June that I…

Bad blogger & hair update

Hi all! I’ve been remiss. It’s been four weeks since my last post. It’s not that I’ve abandoned my blog – not at all – I’ve just been a busy, bad blogger. I guess I did need a break and my hair wasn’t a priority over the last little bit. I needed to get back…

Hair pictures and more!

I never liked wearing my hair in just two strand twists. I just didn’t think it looked good on me and it made me sad because I wanted to wear my hair in this protective style for at least a week before doing a twist out. My scalp is another issue and another post because…

Being kinder to my kinks

A couple of weeks ago, when I was in the middle of my dad being seriously ill, I had to deal with my hair. As I wrote before, the scalp was out of control, so I couldn’t go another two weeks (honestly, I shouldn’t have gone two weeks because my scalp doesn’t roll like that)….

The Accidental Natural’s protective style challenge – update

In September, I told you guys that I was going to do my own protective style challenge (read the post here). Here’s what I was going to do: Keep my hair in protectives styles (kinky twists, two-strand twists, wigs and I’m going to attempt a bun before I have to start wearing a hat! It…

Hair treats for me!

For the past few months, I’ve been on a strict no-buying hair products diet. I did it for a couple of reasons, but mainly because I was trying to pay off some trips from this past summer and I wanted to simplify my hair regimen. Really, there is no use buying 68 different conditioners because…

A wholesale pain in the *bleep*

I was extra excited about ordering my products from Essential Wholesale. I had been researching for weeks – well, at least from the evening I heard about the company. I was so excited! I was going to try a number of things at drastically low prices! I mean, as much as I enjoy some commercially…

Need deep conditioning help!

Last week, I took my twists out and I wanted to pamper my hair with a nice deep conditioning treatment before I styled. But guess what? I had run out. Gasp! I had been using QP Elasta’s DPR-11 or Ms. Key’s 10 en 1. Thankfully, great bloggers and commenters have shared a secret with me:…
