Oh, I’m fancy: Tresses N’ Dresses

The holidays are fast approaching! Anyone who knows me knows that I love the holiday season, so I start thinking about what I’m going to do around Christmas and New Years. This event popped into my inbox last week: The event is being put on by a couple of groups: MOI, AfroChic, and iheartmyhair.com. Before the Tresses…

Product review: Carol’s Daughter Healthy Hair Butter

I recently realized that I never did a review on Carol’s Daughter Healthy Hair Butter! Seeing that I use it pretty often, I thought that I already shared my experiences with you… obviously not. A couple of months ago when I visited my cousins in Connecticut, I was able to get to a Sephora and…

My regimen: Fall/Winter 2010

Here’s another update on my regimen for fall/winter 2010. Actually, I think my regimen is more to the point – I’ve taken off my product junkie crown and that is totally streamlining the products I’m using. But I will be swapping out some products for the season just because of the frigid Canadian winter. (It’s…

Boo for hair typing!

I’m done with hair typing. It’s a waste of time. I can’t swear that my hair is a 4a, 4b or whatever.  All I know is that I love my hair and it’s growing. Whether it’s 4a with some defined curls or 4b with cottony clouds, what it comes down to is that my hair…

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:…

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…

Are we obsessed with length?

My hair is growing…like a weed. And I’m certainly not complaining. In March, I made a vague comment about wanting to be shoulder-length by fall (got to that goal in Spring 2010) and well on my way to armpit-length by spring 2011. Well, guess what? I’m about an inch and a half to armpit length…

Toronto Natural Hair & Beauty show – review

On Sunday, I went to the Toronto Natural Hair & Beauty show with my sister-in-law and my friend. We got to the show just before three p.m. and I was excited. This was my first encounter with a show like this – hundreds of naturalistas in one spot? Wicked! Parking was at a premium (and…

Fall brings back-to-school, cold weather and updates!

Hope everyone who celebrates Labour Day had a great, relaxing long weekend. Now we’re back to the grind – whether you’re in school or at work — saying ‘bye’ to all that summer fun. Although summer is my favourite season and I’m sorry to see it go, fall runs a close second. For those of…
