The picture above is me rocking one of my FAVORITE wigs!! I have been wearing her since 2009. And with the particular style, it only gets better with time. It starts off somewhat silky, but after week 3 it becomes more full, and kinky in texture! LOVE IT!!! For years I have been wearing this style in a 1B.. So this past weekend, I asked if they had my girl in any other color schemes.. and “bet cha by golly wow!!!” THEY DID!!!! When I tell you I was up in the beauty supply store hitting the DOUGIE! I ain’t lying!! LOL!!!! This is an AWESOME protective style. I will literally not touch my hair for 2 months, while wearing this. The care of my actual hair underneath wig is simple. I would co wash my hair (while in braids) apply the LOC method and let it air dry. Once this is complete, then the wig goes back on my head. Length retention is no question while rocking this. The front of my head is done in loose flat twist, to protect my edges.. I have lost them before, when I was an avid braid wearer. I am NOT trying to lose my edges again! LOL! Tammy is only $19.99, and for those who are afraid to color their tresses (Raises hand, I) This is a great alternative for you! I am REALLY feeling this hair color on me, and LAAAWWDDDDD knows I wanna spice up my natural hair, but I’m afraid it will break off, with a permanent color.. So maybe I’ll look for a semi permanent color that resembles… Hmmm I don’t know.. But yes ladies, I just wanted to share my “HOLY GRAIL” of wigs with you all!! There is one other follower of mine who I believe wears the same style and it’s also her holy grail wig as well!! Great minds think alike!!! I love you all and HAPPY GROWING! MUAHHH!!!
Bare with me, I was at work! LOL! Okay, so I decided to upload a video from my phone to my Youtube page and this was the end result! LOL! I do not have fancy editing software, etc.. I simply did not feel like typing too much on my blog today, so I do what I do best… TALK! LOL! The oil mix that’s mentioned is simply a concoction I came up with that consists of peppermint oil, Jamaican Blk castor oil, and coconut oil. 🙂 I call it my “JuJu mix” don’t ask me why it’s named that! My head looks really huge on this damn video, but it is what it is.
Good afternoon my lovelies!!! Today’s post will be a FUN ONE! A poll if you may will.. I know you’re a bit confused by the title and may be thinking “Aren’t all straight black men usually possess Natural Hair” and the answer would be “YES!” However, I mean it more along the lines as rocking locs, twist and braid outs, etc, you know how my homie Dwele rocks his hair! LOL! What do you guys prefer?? AAAANNNNNDDDDD GO!!!!!!!!
It’s been EXACTLY 1 week since I’ve straighten my hair for a length check…. I have worked out… And indulge in “OTHER” activities with my significant other.. ^_^ I usually sweat HEAVILY in my head… My hair is still straight.. I can’t WAIT to immerse my hair in water so that it can revert.. I’m praying it does… I’m a bit concerned because it’s still straight… Should I be lovelies???!
Hello my lovelies! As I get into the swing of this here blogging thing, I will try to come with new post DAILY instead of weekly! I really love sharing things with you about our hair, and the overall health of us as a whole. I’ve met ALOT of ppl who are clueless when it comes to the direction correlation of diet and hair health. Understand this… What you put into your body will have either a negative or positive impact on your hair.. Think of your body of as a temple, because it is just that. (Getting biblical, I’m not apologetic though) moving forward…. I myself drink a gallon of water per day and have been doing so for about 2 years now.. I sure to you all it is not that hard! Try to do this with lemon if the mere idea of water intake is just “BLAH” to you! LOL! SPICE THAT SHIT UP!! *does corny salsa dance* I’m the QUEEN of veering off subject.. BACK TO IT SHALL WE! I will not get into the science of it and etc etc.. Because quite frankly, that’s a bit boring, and this is not the tone of this here blog post! Time and place for everything. I drink this here smoothie daily, and I can honestly say for a lack of better wording.. *clears throat* my hair is STRONG AS HELL!! And I want to credit that to this here drink! Give it a try, you’ll see the difference in your nails as well.. Quick to make. I personally LOVE my Nutribullet and magic bullet. Whatever works! Eating better is a bit pricey, I know sad but true.. America is a tad bit FUCKED UP! But that’s another story I will not go into.. LOL! Our bodies need Omega-3 Fatty Acids, Water, Protein, Minerals and Vitamins to be properly replenished on a daily basis. Here is a smoothie you can try that will incorporate all of those essentials:
1 cup of almond milk (Provides Protein, Potassium & Zinc minerals)
1 Organic Banana (Provides Vitamin A, B, C, E & Iron minerals)
1 Handful of Spinach (Provides Fiber, Protein and Cancer-fighting Antioxidants)
1 Handful of Kale (Provides Vitamin A, C, K, & Sulfur for Detoxification)
1 Tablespoon of Flax Seeds or Chia Seeds (Provides Omega-3 Fatty Acids)
1 Organic Pear (Provides Calcium & Fiber)
½ Cup of Ice
DRINK UP!!! ENJOY!!! BE HEALTHY!! GROW HEALTHY HAIR!!! Be it ear length or waist! Remember LOVE YOURSELF and LIFE will be GREAT!!
I started to make a vid on youtube about this, but I am VERY new to that and I don’t have a video editor program yet.. HOWEVER! My girl Jouelzy on Youtube had my EXACT regime! Here it is ladies! This is how I maintain length retention. For my water and oil mixture I use JAMAICAN BLK castor oil and water. The conditioner I use is “The Mane Choice” I have a 4a/4b texture however it works the same for my hair and yours! Happy growing my lovelies! Any questions on products I use PLEASE FEEL FREE to comment or email me!
One of my fave channels to watch on Youtube.. My hair goal is to reach waist line. I’m currently at bottom of neck length it has taken me 10 months to do so from a 2 inch fade cut.. I’m forecasting this will probably take 3 to 4 yrs based upon my protective styles efficiency to protect and preserve my ends!!! You guys ready for this visual journey with me??
