 Hi Guys!

Just dropping in to say hello and to post mainly about my hair. Today, I actually LOVE it!

I'm still in that awkward stage and I'm still trying to figure out what to do with it. I'm not really a twist/mini twist person. I'm not into braids and weaves much anymore. I'm really in love with just wearing it out, but it seems to never want to behave all day. Through humidity, dryness, rain, sleet to sunny days, my hair just will not hold a braid out or twist out or bantu knot out.  *sigh*




I managed to get up and dressed early enough to snap some pics this morning and catch my hair before it started acting all shady. 


This is a flat twist out. Done by spritzing my hair with a little Jane Carter spray conditioner, Cantu Shea moisture lotion, detangling and twisting the night before. I am really digging the way that it turned out. As I sit here and type though, 7 hours later, I'm curious as to whether or not I still look like I do in these photos.



Have you ever gotten dressed or done your hair, left your house only to walk past a mirror or glass store front a few hours later and think daaayyyum! Like I know I fixed myself up better than this before I left! LOL 

Oh well, it happens. Hoping for the best!

What are you doing to cope with or handle your natural hair during this summer? I'd really like to box braid it up, just to save time and protect it, but I just can't seem to bring myself to do it. 

Any suggestions on something quick and easy that might work?

  2. I think the box braid would look cute on you. I'm not natural but I'm trying a few "natural" like styles. If I had enough hair in the back I'd get box braids myself.

    As for your outfit I think you look fine.

  3. Your hair looks fine, but as a man I might not see what you are witnessing. Reminds me of the old Lauryn Hill-styled natural hair which was cool, calm, collected.

  4. You hair looks great. box braids are cute but I'm not a fan of braids, since it's so hot you might be better off twisting your own hair and wear pin updos style I've seen some very cute one.

    I have 2 freinds who recently braided their hair only to cut it up days later because it's too hot lol

  9. I agree with the cuteness factor of your hair, it looks great! Natural hair is a work in progress though, I'm still experimenting and trying new things! Try K is for Kinky and Black Girl with Long Hair for style tips and ideas!

  11. Your hair looks great! I need to cut my hair so it has more of a shape when I do twist-outs.

    1. Carmesha, I didn't cut it, I just kind of "smooshed" the sides to create a shape. LOL. No more cutting for me.
