Hello lovelies! Popping in to share with you my tapered look. I've been itching to do it for a year or more but the thought of cutting my 3 year's worth of "long hair" was too overwhelming! But 2 months ago, I finally did it. Then I went home that night and bawled. But truly, … Continue reading Tapered – finally!
2015 has been a long and lonely road for my hair. We spent the year in high buns and 1# set of kinky sew-in wefted hair both of which depleted the few hair I had at my temple. As I enter #missionregrowth I had to make the choice to just let my hair strive! And when I … Continue reading ‘Fro Love
Hello, Curlies! Last year I developed a bun obsession. It was endless high buns continuously. For my curlfriends with TWAs, there is hope. I did an oversized bun which didn’t require me to pull my hair into a full ponytail and it looked freaking #awesome. I also installed some mini twist to do a twist … Continue reading My Bun Obsession
Hello Curlies! Its been a minute but I'm back with another TWA style - mini 2-strand twists! Now, I'm not gonna lie....these suckers are time consuming to complete - took me 4 hours which was due in part to the fact that I am a slow twister. I have sparse hair so I do not get the … Continue reading TWA Style #12 – Mini 2-Strand Twists
Hi Curlies! I think I may have mentioned in previous post/s that I got a bunch of Hairfinity hair vitamins for my birthday. Well, it has been 6 full weeks and I wanted to share with you guys my unimpressive results I always mention that I have a super slow growth rate (which I … Continue reading Hairfinity: 6 Weeks and Counting!
My Aunt stopped by my place a few weeks ago wanting to know what to do with her TWA to keep it moisturized. She had transitioned to natural and had about 3" of hair which she had in some corn rows; however, she was having problems with under-moisturized hair. So ode to all the new … Continue reading Natural Hair Care Products: The Basics
I have been growing weary of my curly afro and twist outs recently. I was on YouTube hunting for a few TWA styles and was having a difficult time finding something that wasn't a variation to a textured afro or a twist out of some sort. In the end, I went with [gel less] finger … Continue reading TWA Style #6 – Finger Coils
Hi curlies! Its been about a month and a half since I did my last hair update; but that's simply because I had been rocking some Marley braids for exactly 4 weeks. If you've been following me, you would remember I mentioned that on the very last day of 2013 I became haunted and used … Continue reading 6 Months Post BC – 11 Months Natural
I posted this as part of a longer post but wanted to give it it's own space so that it may be easier to find for any naturals searching. One way to show your length is to do a style that stretches your tresses 🙂 I do a lot of sponge curls/twists that does not … Continue reading TWA Style #5 – Three-Strand Braid Out
Curly fro test number two comes in the form of a Flat Twist Out, which basically follows the same process as my Bantu Twist Out so please see post for details. Everything was done exactly the same except instead of doing two strand twists and then knotting them, you make the parts for your flat twists. Be … Continue reading TWA Style #4 – Flat Twist Out
Because my hair is all kink and zero curl, I am on a mission to find styles that will give me a curly afro, which I much prefer over a straight combed out afro (just personal preference. I have nothing against combed out afros!) *-* One such style that I have tried with success is … Continue reading TWA Style #3 – Bantu Twist Out
For most women, their first BC is always a scary thought. The most terrifying thought that instantly comes to mind is "how will I look with 'no' hair?" I, myself, do not like the way I look with a very low BC (despite that fact that I did it twice!) It rattles the cages of … Continue reading Small Details: Big Impact – Enhancing your BC / TWA
I woke up, hauntedly, at 4:00 am one morning and was looking at random tutorials on YouTube. Going from video to video I came across a few featuring a product called 'Nudred' which is basically a sponge with holes cut into it used to start dreds or for someone just wanting to style their TWA, … Continue reading TWA Style #2 – Sponge Twists
With a mission to start learning new ways to style my TWA this time around, I came across a video on Youtube that I thought was pretty cool. A lot of you may already have done this or is presently doing this, but I had never thought of it. It is called 'brush coils' and … Continue reading TWA Style #1 – Brush Coils
