Rapid Natural Hair Growth

I recently stumbled upon some of my old pictures of me when I began my natural hair journey. Just comparing those pictures to my hair now is crazy. Now I see why it is important to document your progress so you can look back at the photos and be like "DANG! I did well!". Our hair grows soooo fast that we really have to appreciate the stage of growth we are currently at. I miss my TWA sooo much at times.

Undercut, Sidecut....To cut or not to cut?

The popular cut these days is the undercut or the shave sides cut. A lot of celebs are making this trend hot. I have always like the style because I just like things that are different and edgy. Yes, some of the variations can be a little outrageous but a few of them are appealing. After viewing the above video on how to style your hair with and undercut, I got the itch to cut my hair. I am seriously thinking about it and I time will tell, I guess.

Wal-Mart Has Joined the Movement!

Finally! Wal-Mart has joined the natural hair movement ladies! I've heard that Wal-Mart would start selling Taliah Waajid products but I hadn't seen any in the store. So, imagine my surprise when I stop by my local Wal-Mart today and come across a variety of natural hair products. On the same aisle as the Taliah Waajid products there were Twisted Sista, Shea Moisture, Beautiful Textures, and Lustrasilk natural hair products.

I love shopping for my hair almost more than shopping for clothes. I was so pumped. I was tired of having to go to Target or Sally's all the time to satisfy my natural hair needs. Wal-Mart is way more convenient since it is closer to home. I am thrilled that people are seeing that natural hair is here to stay in our community and that they might as well join the movement!

By the way.....The people in the picture are jumping for joy because of natural hair products being in Wal-Mart. lol

Random Topic of The Moment: My Relationship with the Dishwasher

This post is not hair related at all unless I some how discover a way to do a wash and go style by putting my head in the dishwasher. I think that would be called suicide. Lol. Anyway, I have just discovered the usefulness of a my beloved dishwasher. I have stayed in a home with this dishwasher for a year and now I have finally decided to further I relationship pass storing away dished in it. Being a mom and a wife is a tough but wonderful job. These titles leave me too tired to wash dishes at the end of the night. Seeing a mountain full of dishes in the sink right before bed time can be a little overwhelming. dishwasher saved my nights and my sanity. lol. I bet you readers out there are like "Omg. She used a dishwasher woopdy do." but this is different y'all. It feels like a woman finally discovering a use for her husband of ten years or something. lol. What would we do without lifesaving appliances? Okay I am ending my non related natural hair post. Thanks for reading.

<p>Two days ago I flat ironed my hair. I used Jane Carter's Nourish and Shine and my hair turned out so shiny and soft. This is the first time I have flat ironed my own hair and honestly enjoyed the out come since I have been natural. My highlights really popped when my hair was finished. I will let my hair stay flat ironed for a week or two. I would like to experiment with some braid outs and bantu knot out styles while my hair is in this state.
