Getting kinky again ;)

So, I’ve been wearing Korina for a good week and I can’t wait until tomorrow when I untwist my flat twists and rock a big puffy afro. It’s so strange — for a good 20 years, I couldn’t imagine my life with my own natural hair. A year and some of being natural and I…

When a good hair ‘do goes bad…

I wish I had a picture to show you. Last week, I created a somewhat intricate style for myself. Well, it’s not that intricate, but it did take more time than normal. I have flat twists around my head and then twists that I corkscrew in the middle. Picture it, folks! It was really cute……

Doing the ‘do: Holiday hair

The holidays are over. Sigh. I’m a little sad to tell you the truth – I love Christmastime. I’m not a big fan of New Year’s Eve, but I was out celebrating with family and friends. So, my readers, what did I do with my hair? Well, I thought that I’d be in wigs for…

Doing the ‘do: Flat twists

So tonight I’m going to see Maxwell in concert (Chrisette Michele and Common are opening! Yay!) and I decided to try out my flat twist style. Yesterday, I co-washed with Suave Naturals, then conditioned with Kiss My Face Whenever Conditioner. I sprayed in my Infusium 23 leave-in, moisturized with my super moisturizer and then sealed…

A new favourite style???

Last night, I felt like playing around a little with my hair. It was really soft from my protein deep treatment and not looking like how I wanted it to. I had untwisted the six flat twists I had in the front of my hair and the wavy, curly thing it was doing was so…
