The Tangle Teezer- MUST HAVE! 

If you’re anything like me, I cannot stand the detangling session on Wash Day. So much so that sometimes I skip it altogether #judgeme #idc

But the other day while scrolling through the explore section on Instagram, I found @askproy. She’s beautiful and without a doubt, my new BFF in my head! 🙂  I began clicking through her photos and of course I had to take a peek at her blog, Steel Feather Lace Elephant. The blog is lively, adorable and full of natural hair info. I clicked on a post titled, Everything You Need to Know About Natural Hair and discovered a God Send!

The TANGLE TEEZER. When she mentioned it and its price I immediately (like told the bf to watch the kids, Ill be right back)  ran out to Sally’s Beauty Suppy to purchase! It comes in a variety of colors but purple is my favorite so I chose this one!

The Results: PHENOMENAL! I no longer dread detangling my hair. With a little help from a detangling product this baby will glide straight through and help cut down the time. And the shape allows for it to fit perfectly in your palm for easy control.

 I highly recommend every naturalista to purchase! Thank me later! 😊

3 Protective Styles to Try this Winter!

If you are in located in the Northeast area of the US like I am, you understand that Mother Nature has not been to kind to us in the last couple of weeks. The up and down temperatures along with record breaking lows, ice and blizzards have left searching Timehop for sunny days and wondering if we’ll ever get back to that happy place again. Not only is this weather depressing to the psyche— It can also be depressing for our hair.

While it is very important to keep your hair moisturized in these harsh temperatures, you also want to give it a break every once in awhile. I have three protective styles that are fun, versatile and so I have heard are very easy to install on your own.

 

MARLEY TWISTS

CROCHET BRAIDS

There are tons of YouTube videos and visuals floating around the internet on how to do these styles. They may take some time but since we’re all pretty much stuck in the house anyway— why not try these out!? Lol

 

PEACE.

Naturalistas on the Red Carpet #OscarEdition

The 87th Academy Awards ceremony, presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, honored the best films of 2014 and took place tonight, at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. Everyone looked stunning per usual but I would like to point out the Naturalistas that were spotted working the carpet. These two women are never shy about rocking their hair all natural in front of and off the camera.

Did these ladies work it or what!?

Bored With Your Hair?

Ive been there. Im probably in that place now. Ok. For certain Im in that place now. Ive mastered the art of keeping my hair moisturized and have perfected my sleep regimen. I have an abundance of products- some of which I have not opened. Ive tried every style in my now a little bit longer than an TWA fro and yet Im still bored!

For the past week Ive been rocking a twist out and figured that I would just let my hair do what it wants to do. And guess what? Its working! Who says that you have to style it everyday. I dont have time for it. I have teetered on the line of maybe getting it chopped into a tapered cut. But on the other hand- I want to get braids again.

All in all, Im figuring on just letting my hair does what it wants to do. Low manipulation, twist outs, water and oil. Thats it. Not to mention these prenatal vitamins are without a doubt aiding in the growth process!

While searching on YouTube, I found a cute tutorial on some easy styles for short natural hair (since Ive passed the TWA stage-Yipee!)
