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…

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…

Even hot, dry hair is an ‘afro’disiac

Hi all, I’m still on my blog hiatus! But I had to jump online and let you know about the dangers of a parched ‘fro. My hair adventure started last weekend. I went to Hartford, CT to visit my family and it was hot. I mean real hot, but I didn’t bring any shampoo or…

Hair purgatory: the dreaded in-between phase

I cut all my relaxed ends off in September 2008 and I’ve been working toward having a head full of thick, glorious healthy kinks and coils.

DIY: Brown sugar scalp scrub

As you know, my scalp can be evil. It will flake out for no good reason or it will behave. Why it does what it does is a mystery to me. Too much shampoo, flakes. Too much co-washing, build-up. Too little shampoo, build-up. Too little co-washing, flakes. Sigh. Understanding the minds of men is easier…

The Accidental Natural in Western Canada

Hey all! I’m at Vancouver International Airport and I’m looking forward to getting home and scrubbing my scalp (and seeing The Hubby, my parents, the fam and my fish). I’ve realized that washing my hair once a week is a necessary evil in the winter. Now that spring is finally here (woo hoo!) I’m going…

Doing the ‘do – Just because

Just because my hair was looking particularly cute today and I don’t have a dang thing to do this cold January night, I’ve decided to post some pictures of my ‘do. You’ve seen this one before — I just added some hair jewellery. The same jewellery that I wore on Tuesday when I was trying…

When a good hair ‘do goes bad… – Part 2

Good morning, y’all! Yesterday, I was in a tizzy trying to figure out what the heck to do with my hair. I had rocked a cute twisted/flat twisted updo for about a week and the style had reached its limit. I was a hot, fuzzy mess. Some folks here and on Facebook thought I should…

Doing the ‘do: Twist out

Hey all! I haven’t been doing twist outs since I had my kinky twists put in in October. Last week, I wore my accidental protective style: two strand twists put into bantu knots and worn curly. On Friday evening, I decided to unravel my twists. Boy, lemme tell you! My hair looked HAWT! And it’s…

Doing the ‘do: ‘Knot’ impressed

Last week, I decided to try out the flat twists on wet hair. I did it Thursday and when I opened the twists on Friday morning, I wasn’t sure if I liked it or not. As the day went on, a curly ‘fro turned into a tangled, knotted mess… and I was going to the…
