Weekend hair pics

I promised that I would take a few pics this weekend when I took out my protective style so I just wanted to put them up.

Take take down process was pretty quick and easy. Following that, I pre-pooed with

African Black Soap - Shampoo Review

A warm "welcome" to my new subscribers and a heartfelt "thank you" to everyone who follows, reads and leaves comments on my blog.

I wanted to update you on my experience with the shampoo I made. On this post I mentioned I would break down my black soap bar into liquid form to use as a shampoo. I did not

Ingredient inspector

Many of us are conscious about what we are putting on our hair. We scan the ingredient labels looking for items we want included and excluded from the products we consider buying. But what about when the complete

Nourishment - What does “deep conditioning” mean to you?

Rinse-through conditioners usually instruct you to leave product on your hair for a few minutes. While conditioners described as “deep” or “mask” instruct you to leave on longer and may suggest the use of heat. I’m curious to know what your formula is when you give your hair a “deep conditioning treatment”. Please let me know what this means to you.

* Rinse-through conditioner + a form of heat (heat therapy wrap, steamer, dryer, conditioning cap, etc)

* Rinse-through conditioner + additional ingredients (oil, honey, etc)

*Rinse-through conditioner + additional ingredients + a form of heat

*Conditioner mask only

*Conditioner mask + a form of heat

*Conditioner mask + additional ingredients

*Conditioner mask + additional ingredients + a form of heat

* Mixture of 2 or more conditioners

*Do you concoct your own deep conditioner recipe from scratch (please include)

Please share whatever it is you do to deep condition your hair.

Thanks for reading. Be blessed!

Crochet Braids: The Take Down :-)

Yes, my hair is going to feel like it’s been SET FREE (insert the sounds of broken chains hitting the floor followed by harp music), lol. It’s been 5 weeks and I am taking out these crochet braids tonight! I really miss my hair and weekly washings. I’ve only been

African Black Soap

Many sing the praises of this natural cleanser. It can be used for face, body and hair care. When I initially found out about black soap, I was interested in using it for skin care (facial cleanser). After about a month, I discovered this was not a keeper for me. However, I’ve used this for hair and have had nice results.

Creating curls

I’ve got about a week left on these crochet braids so I’m considering styling options for when I take them down. I miss my hair! I’d like to experiment with various curly sets. However, there are so many ways to create them it boggles my mind!

Extra Extra

I don’t usually peruse the newsstand section in the stores I frequent but the beautiful Jill Scott on the cover of May’s Essence magazine definitely peaked my interest. Mad props – this diva is doing her thing! However, upon closer look, I also noticed they were doing a hair feature. Well, that was enough for me to snatch a copy of my own. Their beauty section includes

Parting is such sweet sorrow

PROBLEM: A passion for perfect parts! Am I alone in that it takes me twice as long to finish a style where parts are exposed? Sometimes it’s so frustrating; you know the style doesn’t require an enormous amount of time but because you want the parts to be “perfect” you end up spending an eternity styling hair.

The need to buy: I'm losing control

So far I’m on track with my hair product line up. I’m getting to know what I like and what I don’t so I see a full PJ recovery in view (YAY). In most of the product categories, I’m finding out what my staples are and what I’m not truly committed to. There are a few protein conditioners that I will be trying
