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 | Front Cornrows & Twistout

I haven’t done this hairstyle since I was in middle school, but I think I’ve fallen back in love with it! On my never-ending quest for new hairstyles to try, I decided to go waaaaaay back. I was initially inspired by a photo I came across on Instagram (which I cannot find now, when I need it…). It was a picture of an afro with a side part, and, on the smaller side of the part, it was decorated with...

Natural Hairstyle | Inverted Box Braid Bob

  Lately, I have been itching to install braids again, but I wanted to do it differently. I had done colored braids before, but I had never done a braid “cut”. It didn’t take a lot of scrolling through the #boxbraids tag on Instagram until I decided that I wanted to do a bob. Unfortunately, my hair is WAY too long for a neck length bob (I’m at APL – arm pit length). I toyed with the thought of doing a...

Natural Hair Styles | Two Strand Twists with Head Chain

   I get very bored with my protective styles, which is why they are few and in between. I, however, try to rock my two strand twists at least for a couple of days before unraveling them. Usually, this is done by wearing a headscarf, but this time I decided to finally wear this head chain from Forever 21. And now I’m obsessed!    I originally got the idea from a video on YouTube by TeAmoAaron. I had to pull...
