As y’all know, I am going natural. I’m trying to learn how to do different types of twist outs on my hair for a protective style that will give my hair a break. I found this video from Shameless Maya which shows you how to do two twerked out twist outs! The song and dancing are cute, but the tutorial is also very informational. In the video she shows you how to do the two strand twist out and the flat twist. Check it out and see if you can master these twisting techniques. Bonus: You can do these twist outs on relaxed hair as well.
Here is my wig review for the Motown Tress Flirt Wig. I am not a big fan of it. It only costs about $35 at my local beauty supply store. It costs around that price too on the online hair stores. Even though it has lace at the top to make it look like a natural part, I think the cap is too small. The cap is so small that it puckers up in the back. I finally cut the bottom hairs off of the wig to give it a more natural look. You can see that part in the last few minutes of the video. I feel like this is just one of those wigs I am going to have to work with.

FCC: I paid for this wig myself. This is an honest review.
Last weekend was my first time at Fro Fashion Week, and I am so glad I went. My friend and fellow blogger Ebony from Make Me Over Eb spoke at this event last year. She told me it was a really great event that I should try to go to and see what it is about. Since I’ve decided to go natural again, and the event was just three hours away I said, “why not?” Well… so far, so good.
All of the women here at Fro Fashion Week Spring 2013 have been so inspirational. We shared our hair journeys, and special hair tips. It was like we were sharing some kind of special hair bonding experience. We laughed and joked and had us a good ole time! I bought a VIP pass, so I received a box full of natural hair goodies that should help me transition from chemically relaxed hair to fluffy and full natural hair. I miss my old hair texture, my natural hair texture, and seeing all of these women with beautiful natural styles is making me impatient for hair growth, but excited for change. Continue Reading
I am finally home from the Bronner Bros. Mid-Winter Hair Show 2013. I am so tired and sore from all the walking and standing and doing, but I had a blast! I can’t wait to go back again. I bought a ton of items, and handed out several business cards. I really think I found some new brands to cover for the blog. I never made it to any of the classes, but that is okay. This was my first time at the largest exhibition in the world. I learned what to expect for next time so I can plan accordingly. I want to leave you with some of pictures that I took at the event. Also, check out the blog in the coming weeks when I review some products from the show! Continue Reading
Check out this battle between the Model Model Invisible Part Wig “Yura” and the Freetress Equal Invisible Part Wig “Spotlight.” I am really loving these wigs. For the uninitiated, these are basically 3/4 or u-part wigs. If you are still confused, it is basically a wig with the top cut out of it in a “U” formation so you can pull your own hair out on the top which allows the wig to look more natural. Get into these things. They will save your life on a bad hair day all for around the price of $25. Not bad ehh?! Check out the video and look for part two.

AHHHHHHHHH!! Mom and I are having a blast at Bronner Bros. braving the wind and the cold, and all of the incredible vendors inside. I have already bought things that I plan on reviewing later and sampled other products. My hands have more creams and oils on them I’ve ever had on them before. They should be baby soft right now. I think I am going to put some pictures up of all the crazy hairstyles I’ve seen so far on my Facebook page, so stay tuned for that. They are wild, and I know you want to see them. Tomorrow we are going to go to some makeup classes and peruse the vendors again. Mom is acting as my assistant. She is helping me tape things, and is really having a blast! I would also like to say thank you to the media coordinators for the event. They were really helpful.
I decided to do this video on some the edge control products I found in my local beauty supply stores. Edge control products are mainly for African American hair, and slick your edges back like hair gel. They actually seem like a gel and a pomade, depending on what product you buy. Some edge control products look like lotion. The ones I bought look like a hair gel. Hicks Edges is the best. While I wish it had better ingredients in it, it will hold my hair forever and have it laid. Ampro Shine ‘n Jam Silk Edges is my ultimate cheap favorite. Hicks Edges can be priced anywhere from $12 to $20 depending on the store you go to, but this Ampro product only set me back about $3.09. Score! The Creme of Nature Argan Oil Perfect Edges was $5.99 or so , but sucked. The only good thing about the product was that it smelled good. Watch the video above.
The Marley Braid Bun is a great protective hairstyle for those that are going natural or have already grown some length of hair out already. Jouelzy has a really great and simple tutorial to complete the Marley Bun look. The best thing about the Marley Bun is that you only need one pack of $5 hair and elastic hair ties. Any brand will do. Try the Afro Marley Braid (kanekalon) by Janet Collection-1B(off black).
Hey guys! I got rid of that awful horrible, no good, trash that was the Bobbi Boss IndiRemi in the Ocean Wave. Thankfully the good people at The Fabulace Hair gave me two packs of their 16 inch Brazilian Loose Wave in 1B. So far I am in love with it. My parents and my hairstylist have already noticed a difference in the hair. Check out my video above for a more in depth review.
Hey Everyone! I finally got my hands on one of those infamous Curl Boxes from curlBox! They opened up their membership one day on Twitter so I bought a one month subscription to the natural hair product club. Make sure you check out their Twitter account so you can find out when they open up their subscriptions.
I think this song is so important for little Black girls today. A lot of people aren’t happy with this song, but I think a lot of little girls need to see something like this. I find that the hair issues that African Americans have start at an early age. Hopefully this video will help little girls of all races love their hair and bodies.
