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.

Two Years Relaxer Free

On St.Patty's Day I was relaxer free for two years! YEAH BUDDDDY! I love my journey so far and have no regrets. All my mistakes (a little heat damage) has taught me what to avoid and how to treat my hair. To celebrate this milestone I decided to get highlights. My hair is already color treated in a shade of brown. I despise black hair color on me. Lol. I don't know why. I went to a natural hair salon called Mocha Reign. My stylist,Kerri, gave me great service and had me looking fierce. Tell me what you guys think?

I wanted to share some pics and my vid of my yarn twist review. I really love them but I am taking them down because I miss my glorious natural hair. I just wanted to try this style out to see if I could do it myself and I was successful. Yarn twist are easier and neater to install than yarn braids to me. I started my twist off as a braid and then twisted them. I used black and brown red heart yarn. NEVER used wool because it can lock in your hair. Yarn does hold moisture so this style is very good for dry hair that need to be well nourished. I will be revisiting this style in the future and making a tutorial video. Thanks for reading and see ya next post.

Viola Davis Natural Hair Exposed!

photos via

I was looking on the web today and came across a beautiful picture of actress Viola Davis. She is the actress that recently starred in the movie "The Help". Usually she rocks wigs and hair extensions so I was shocked to see her with her twa. I love it! It makes her look ten year younger and there is just something sexy about being all natural. I think that embracing our kinks and curls gives us a certain power.

Hair health over length

Hello readers. This year I am choosing healthy hair over long hair. Since the beginning of my hair journey in 2009,  I have been seeking long hair. I think in my search for longer hair I started neglecting my hair's health. Yes, my hair did grow but when I look at my ends today I grimace at the state they are in. Not healthy looking at all. So I have decided that in 2012 I am going to focus on healthy hair instead of trying to grow my hair to my butt. I think if I treat my hair with love it will repay me with health growth instead of ugly, split ends. I also am applying this method of thinking to my body. I am not trying to lose weight but be healthier in my lifestyle. I will go on about healthy eating and things but that is a whole different post. lol. Toodles!
