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,…

Hair growth & HoneyFig sale

I promised a hair post last week and here it is – a few days late! I was sitting at my desk a couple of days ago and twirling my hair. I know, it’s a bad habit, but when your hair is feeling soft and supple, bouncy and healthy, it’s kinda hard to keep your…

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…

Length check… sort of…

It’s not a true length check – I was going through some old pictures that I have on my computer and I noticed that my hair has grown. Check out these three pictures – one from July 2010 and another from December 2010: A lot of growth, huh? Well, at least I think so 🙂…

Quick scalp + hair update

A couple of posts ago, I complained that my scalp was acting up because of the stress I was dealing with. I wanted to give you a quick update because things are looking up. First of all, my stress level has come down… a lot. My dad is feeling better and that makes me feel…

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)….

My scalp and stress – not a good combination

Hi all! First of all, my dad is doing really well. He’s walking, talking and cracking jokes… serious jokes about stuff that I didn’t think he would remember. Yay Pops! Seeing that he’s feeling well, I am in a mood to talk hair! Since December 14, I have spent inordinate amounts of time at the…

The greatest twist out ever!

Yes, last week and this weekend, I rocked the greatest twist out ever! As much as I complained — and I complained bitterly — about my Essential Wholesale purchase, their Olive Nourishing Creme is the truth. My hair was moist, soft, fluffy, defined and it got better each day. These pictures are from The Hubby’s…

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…

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…
