“I’m Not Paying That Much Money For Those Products”

By |July 10th, 2014|Curls|1 Comment

I hear this from the newbies all the time.  That and…”It costs too much money to be natural.”

It doesn’t have to. There are still good products out there for the naturals on a budget, teenagers who have allowances, or just a frugal individuals in general. When I started paying attention to the type of products that I was using in my natural hair, I was still in college so you know how that is(Ramen Noodles & chump change). Here are a list a good ol’ budget-friendly products, everything under $10. Most of this stuff (If not all) is at the drugstore or Target.

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.

Hello Naturalistas!

By |January 30th, 2014|Personal|2 Comments

I am so happy that I have finally started this blog. My voice can finally be heard…well read. I have so much to say that I feel as though I am about to burst.

Let’s see where do I start?  I suppose that I will do a short introduction.My name is Sara, I live in Chicago, and I have been natural all my life. Even though I have never had a relaxer, I have only been cherishing, embracing, and really caring for the well being of my natural hair for about 2 years.  I did not always understand how to take care of my hair properly. For the most part I was confused as a teenager. I thought that the best way to wear my hair was to straighten the life out of it. I mean I was OBSESSED with stick straight hair and was even fearful of letting people see me after I washed my hair.
