Natural Hairstyle | Perfect Perm Rod Set How-To

Deciding what hairstyle to enter my 26th year with wasn’t as daunting of a task as you would expect… I only had 2 in mind: Beautiful tousled curls achieved on a blowout using flexi rods or tighter-coiled curly fro with perm rods. I opted for the style that was most comforting at night. Deciding what products to use required some research. My last few attempts at a gorgeous perm rod set were marred by humidity and lack of ability to...

Natural Hairstyle | Twisted Fauxhawk Updo

Safe protective styling has always been a bit of a struggle for me due to lack of inspiration and a fear of boredom. It took me a two-hour search on instagram to find a hairstyle I hadn’t done before that I could really make my own.. What I mean by safe protective styling is a style that lasts a while but doesn’t endanger my edges, isn’t too tight on my scalp, and won’t cause any unnecessary breakage. As naturals, we tend...

Carol’s Daughter Almond Milk Daily Damage Repair Collection Review

PSA: This review is not sponsored! I spent my own money on these products to give you an honest review because I love natural hair and I’m a product junkie who’s always on the search for the perfect hair products. I recently purchased the Carol’s Daughter Almond Milk Collection because I’m always looking for products that help repair and protect damaged hair. I was mainly attracted to the name: Almond Milk. I know of the health benefits of almond milk...

Natural Hairstyles | How to Make Bantu Knots Look Cute & Wearable

Bantu knots are a true catch 22. The end result – a bantu knot out – is usually BOMB, but dealing with the prerequisite can be problematic. Because they tend to take forever and a day to dry if you style on wet hair, wearing the knots outside the house is a necessary evil for a busy lifestyle. To a lot of naturals, wearing bantu knots outside is equivalent to wearing rollers outside the house. You’re not going to wear rollers in your head...

Natural Hairstyles | The Bun Wrap

This past week has been a LONG one. With the Super Bowl and Mardi Gras only being two days apart, I haven’t had much time to sleep let alone pay attention to my hair. Being a bartender in New Orleans during Mardi Gras can be a very lucrative opportunity, but it takes it’s toll on your mental and physical health due to long hours and little sleep (especially if you’re participating in festivities along with the everyone else). My lack...

Why I Stopped Using Shea Butter…

For the better part of two years, I strictly used Shea butter to style my hair. It worked well at locking in moisture and keeping my hair soft and shiny for DAYS. My hair always came out well-defined, and the style would last as long as the moisture would. It also isn’t very expensive: I can usually catch it on sale at Whole Foods. One tube, mixed with oils, can last me months. Shea butter is the real MVP. This...

#HOTD | Straightened Natural Hair

I was in dire need of a trim and could not wait until Christmas. The shears were calling me… But, I never trim my hair curly, always straight. It allows me to see the raggedy ends clearer. And the weather was close to perfect for it. I am now 3 years 4 months natural, and I’m still loving every moment. Straightening my hair this time was a little emotional for me because I haven’t seen my hair this long and this...
