My Mom Goes NATURAL!!!

Hey my loves….
This is just a quick post about my mom going Natural…yay! Ok so as long as I can recall my mom has always rocked short stylish cropped cuts and on her they’ve been HOT.org. Well lately she’s been talking about going Natural, said she wanted a change and wanted to start a healthy hair journey. After being so supportive of me during my journey, she BC’d today….and she looks FAB! She said even though her hair was short as she’s been rocking a cute Mohawk…she said her BC gave her a free feeling and new start. Her BC was a great experience and now she’s eager for what is to come aas am I for her.
Check out my mom with her fresh BC 🙂

Curl Poppin!!!!!!!!!

Hello, hello, hello, hello!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok now, I’m siked because my new twist-out routine is OMG! Not only is my hair soft but my curls are defined and poppin! Oh yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now even though I’m using conditioner as my styler for my twist-outs, I still moisturize and seal my ends, which I do every other night as my hair is good w/ maintaining moisture. But wow I’m so pleased w/ this routine that I may say bye-bye to other stylers I’ve used. In addition to the conditioner, I added a dab of my homemade Shea Butter mix to “tame” my edges….man oh man is my hair FLY (lol).

Now for the BONUS…..PICS!!!!

More updates to come as once again I’m tweaking my regimen and staples list….and I’m making it more simple (lol).

New Twist Out Routine

First off….Hello All its been a minute. Ok so I’m a huge fan of twist outs, I’ve tried the wash-n-go, the Bantu knots, braid outs, flat twist, etc yet I don’t get the definition and satisfaction as I do with my twist outs. Now im a big fan of youtuber jcokes7 (follow her on twitter @coilyheadchick) as she always comes with the best tips! So for the month if April she is doing a Conditioner Only Wash-N-Go Challenge…now as much as I wanted to participate that style just doesn’t work with my hair so I decided to tweak it and do a month if conditioner only twist outs. Well I’m on day 3 and I’m Loving it! Im using VO5 Tea Therapy Conditioner and while I didn’t think I’d have the definition and hold, I was WRONG….got all if that plus softness.
The only down side is the Major Shrinkage, which I’m use to with my hair…once water hits it that’s a wrap! I keep the steps simple, I wash, deep condition, detangle as usual the only difference is instead of applying my Shea Butter as my styler I usw the conditioner. I still do my small to medium size twists on damp hair and so far its been great!
