I pinned myself last night on Pinterest. I've pinned myself several times before, but this is the first time I'm blogging about it. Anywho, why does one pin themselves? I'll tell you why I did it. I was quite in love with my hair last night (this whole weekend, actually) and I wanted to share it. [...]
Is it safe to say that I'm quite happy to have my hair back? I think so. Since saying farewell to the braids a few days ago, I've re-entered the world of twist outs and Bantu knot outs, as evidenced above. Viva la petite (and growing!) fro.
Apparently, it wasn't enough that I use almost every product in the wonderful and quite effective SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus line for my mind-of-its-own natural hair.

Not pennies, but products. And if you sport your natural texture, you know exactly what I'm referring to. The search for products that will benefit your natural hair seems never-ending, not just in the beginning, but sometimes throughout the hair journey. Add to the fact that I believe our natural roots occasionally like to play too [...]
This past weekend, me and a good friend decided to host a Natural Hair Swap Party. And it was all kinds of awesome. The Original Plan: a year ago, as my friends sat in a car and discussed the different products we use for our natural manes and how effective/ineffective they were, I found it interesting [...]
We'll go with the love first. Naturally. So I rocked Senegalese twists for the past month and a half. 'Twas a great protective style, but the feeling of taking them out and finally getting to place my hands into my scalp was divine. Since a deep--and I mean deeeep--conditioning was necessary, I headed to the [...]
Those endless selfies are for a reason, Mom. From December 2012 to a few weeks ago, my natural hair journey so far...
