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…

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…

Vacation hair: What to bring?

Hi all, Another crazy week, but things are settling down. For that, I’m extremely thankful and grateful to God!

A new challenge: Hairlista’s Castor Oil challenge

Mornin’ all, I’ve noticed something about myself: I respond best to challenges and deadlines. If I’m left to linger around at my own pace, I’ll take forever to do something. But, if I know that it has to be done by today at 12, I’m gonna get it to you today by 12. I guess…

Getting the goods at health food stores

On the weekend, my mother and I were hanging out. She got her hair done at the hairdresser, while I sat and watched. The ladies were like, “aren’t you going to get your hair done?” I felt my big, bushy flat twist-out ‘fro and said, “no.” I love the vibe at the salon, but I’m…

DIY hair care: Pre-‘poo!

I know of several hair bloggers who regularly use a pre-‘poo AKA a pre-shampoo. The reason, from what I understand, is to protect your hair from the rigors of shampooing. I would assume – rightly or wrongly – that if you co-wash, you shouldn’t really need to pre-‘poo. Conditioners shouldn’t strip your hair of natural…
