New Techniques.

      I didn’t expect my next post to be about my hair BUT, there are new developments I’m excited to share. I try to keep my hair post spread out as much as I can so I don’t over do it, especially when I write so few in a months time frame. I wrote a post a few weeks back called Time for a Trim. In that post I talked about my experience threading and straightening my hair, since then, there have been plenty of changes. Continue reading

A few drops of rain mixed with humidity just messes up the whole do. There was no way in hell I was going to re-style, so fro it was! I didn’t care because I really didn’t have the time. It was the first time since the braids that I had skipped a week of conditioning, making it two weeks since the last co-wash. That made me nervous but I made it work the best I could. Continue reading
