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:…

Doing the ‘do: The modified Cinnabun

A couple of weeks ago in my Goo.gle Reader, I saw a really cool style tutorial on Glamazini.com for Juretha’s Cinnabun. I had said that I wanted to introduce buns into my styling now that hair is longer. I watched the tutorial and saw the pictures and Roshini’s hair looked great. (BTW, I do enjoy…

Taking down the twists [INSERT SCREAM HERE]

It feels like I haven’t done a hair post in a while! Last week, I was complaining about my twists and planning to wait until this weekend to take them out. Well, I couldn’t take it anymore – I had to get them out of my head. They were driving me crazy! So, this afternoon…

August to August – a year in growth

But I turned a corner this spring — after wearing protective/low maintenance styles — and my hair is growing steadily….

Caribana 2K10: Hair, fun and more fun

Woo! Hey, y’all! I’m recuperating from Caribana. I had a great time, lots of dancing, eating and spending time with friends and family. Most importantly, I had to figure out what to do with my hair to keep it looking decent although I was going to spend mad time in the sun. Wednesday night was…

Caribana’s in the air! What should I do with my hair?

Yes, folks, Caribana – one of my favourite times of the summer (the other is my birthday) – is around the corner. I’ve already started my celebrations by going to the Scotiabank Caribana Art Exhibit and the Gala After-Party last week. I was planning to check out the King and Queen Competition, as my sister…

Summer, summer, summer hair!

This summer has been busy — I can’t lie. So, my poor little blog has had to take a back seat to all the other things that have been going on. I’m sure in August or September things will calm down and I’ll be back to blogging more regularly. Not only has this summer been…

Dried hair = better style

This post was supposed to be posted last week before I went to South Beach — super fun trip which I will be blogging about just now. Until then, read up about what happens when you don’t dry your hair properly. Miami post to come. I meant to wash my hair on Sunday, but Mom…
