I know I have been one terrible blogger, but much to my surprise, none of ya'll have left my site yet! Not too much is going on with my hair, I am trying to keep it simple, every night I try to spray Aussie Hair Insurance Leave In Conditioner and seal with coconut oil...that has been keeping my hair nice and soft...I did dilute my leave in alot because I didn't like the stickyness of it.
For a long time I had been doing no moisturizing or sealing and I realized something. I HAVE TO! Other wise I have straw hair and split ends everywhere...just a little post to let you know I am alive I will try to post a style soon

Hey!! So I braided my hair for a braidout on Saturday and unravel the braids Sunday morning…it was nice and shiny because I used a GrapeseedOil/Water mixture as my
light boost of moisture, Shea butter to seal, (my ends mainly), and Eco Styler Moroccan Argan Oil Gel as my styler…then at after Church I got caught in the rain…oh well My hair is all frizz now lol
My hair after unraveling:
My hair today (Day 3) in a big high (dry) bun:

Hola everybody...I know...I have been away for such a long time...almost a year...so terrible! Well, I am back, back with a vengeance, lol...
I have mostly been "doin" hair over at my YouTube Channel so check that out I love my members on here and my subbies on YouTube so much!! I really actually feel like blogging now...before it was kind of a passing trend for me, now after reading what so many inspirational bloggers have to say, I want to be influential in the hair world as well. So, yeah, I will be posting hair updates, videos, and anything else you ppl want

Sorry :S I've been making more videos than blog posts. I do have a life other than hair! lol. Any who I have a protective style in right now: 32 chunky plaits and I luv it! There is one braid that's too big so I'll split into three braids then there will be 35 I have been moisturizing 2x daily w/ conditioner/water mixture and it's amazing! Pics soon! I will be shampooing and conditioning my braids today

I have made some changes to my regimen so here's the final cut:
Shampoo and condition 2x week with a sulfate or non-sulfate shampoo
1x week when my hair is dry dry!
every other day every three days!
Always moisturizing daily with a natural oil or conditioner.
24/7, often, and wash 'n' gos too, (there will be a post on that soon!)
Damp bun daily, or dry bun. Ocassional braidout.
Sometimes I do braids or cornrows...more in the summer.
*I am using my moisturizing mix when I do wash 'n' go styles* see Natural hair recipes
In the week I'll do a few light cleanses with Dr. Bronners peppermint castile soap.
WEAR A SCARF OUTSIDE WITH BRAIDS, so I don't get sunburn on my scalp.
1x month do a deep clean (comment for more info)
1x month every now and then I'll do a coconut cream relaxer using Mahoganyknots' method.

Okay, so my favorite youtube channel of all time has to be Miss Katie's Youtube Channel, she adopted two beautiful girls from Liberia, Africa and has taken the time to teach others how to care for African hair for two years on her channel. I have always wished there was more than just her videos, well...NOW THERE IS!!! Her and her friend Steph from snapaholics.com have created a website all about their girls' hair from Liberia and Haiti. The website is Keep Me Curly, and even though they just launched it yesterday, they are already having a GIVEAWAY!!! They are giving away 2 sets of 5 sidewinders to 3 very lucky people! Go check it out: link to the giveaway!!!!!! So get over there and read the rules for a chance to get 10 free sidewinder hairholders!!! In fact...I'm watching her videos right now
