Hey Curl Friends,
So, I have new product favorites when it comes to the shampoos and conditioners. The other products have NOT been written off my list. They are now products that I will use if I run out of what I have.

Help! I don’t understand my child’s hair.

Sorry about the wait. I really do post more often than this but it seems like the universe didn’t want me to write a blog post. I started writing this post last week but WordPress deleted my finished post when I tried to save it. I was livid.

This post was inspired by two people. Within the past two weeks, I have had a few random people walk up to me and ask questions about my hair.

HEAT DAMAGE…What do I do about it?

By |March 2nd, 2014|Personal, Tips|0 Comments

I Hate These Unruly Straight Pieces!!!

By the way, my hair loves being cut. It looks better and cooperates more.

I just realized that I hadn’t officially completed an update of how I’m doing. I recently made the decision to go heatless. I’m not going to set a deadline of how long anymore; I will just go with the flow. If I am heatless for 6 months, great. A year? Even better. Two years? Awesome.

Miss Jessie’s products helped give my hair life.

By |February 22nd, 2014|Products, Tips|1 Comment

Ok, so this is my own opinion. No one paid me to write this or bribed me or anything like that. The fact of the matter is, is that I love Miss Jessie’s products. These products have helped me to be able to get the MOST out of my wash & go’s. (Before I was using just shea butter & pro style brown gel…I know :-O)  I’ve noticed that a lot of blogs try to bash Miss Jessie’s for not using completely natural products, but I say to each their own. I’m not one of those ingredients Nazis. I do not know if the ingredients in Miss Jessie’s are all completely natural or not. What I do know is that these products work for me and they are not hurting my hair in any type of way. In fact, my hair just seems to love it. I have been able to achieve such lovely big spirally curls from using pillow soft curls, which is a styler*.

* A styler is a product that I apply to my hair after I have thoroughly moisturized my hair. It provides a light hold for less frizz but no crunch.

Let’s Talk Oils

Putting oil is your hair is so very important. Can you believe that there are people out there who do not use any type of oil? I believe that it is because they fear that the oil will weigh down their hair or be too greasy. The thing about oil is that you can choose different ones that are heavier or lighter in consistency. For example, if you were to flat iron your hair and wanted it to be light & bouncy, then I would recommend one of the lighter frizz free oils like grape seed oil, jojoba oil, or argon oil.
