use the web!

yesterday i was asked if its hard to style my hair while natural. my answer, no. I told her i like my hair so much more now, then when i had a relaxer. i actually feel like its easier to style and quicker for me to get ready in the mornings. i told her the reason i decided to finally come out of my transitioning phase and sport my all natural hair was because of all the research i had done online. i informed her of all the informative youtube videos, blogs, and websites that gave me the strength to wear my natural hair. the web is a beautiful place!

to all you beautiful ladies out there on the edge about whether to jump out of the transition and finally wear your hair all natural or not, DO IT! DO IT! it feels good! and you inspire others!

day 2 of twist out

I'm on day 2 of my twist out. Its held up pretty good and it was so nice this morning to wake up and fluff my hair a little then get on with my day! Nice and quick! I've received a lot of compliments on my hair. It was a drastic change, but I'm really dign it! I still have not tried the wash and go, however I will be doing it soon since I'm itching to see how it will look throughout the day.

twist out pics

twist products

everyone uses something different on there hair. always remember what works on someones hair may not work on your own hair. its up to you to try products to find out what works best on your hair.

i choose to twist my hair wet. whether after a wash or just spraying my hair wet with water, i then spray with either carrot oil or olive oil sheen spray. not to much, just enough to give it a nice shine and it works great as a moisturizer. next, i begin to twist my hair using shea butter, NOT A LOT! doesn't take much for my hair, plus i don't want my hair to be heavy with a ton of products.

i don't spend a ton of money on hair products, i never have. I believe once you find something that works, stick to it! of course its not bad to try other products, which i will, but for now i know what i like! my hair is so soft, i love it!

when twisting my hair i prefer not to go to small because I'm all about my time. the twists in the picture are quick and easy!

8 months natural!

my big chop was march 2010. It's been 8 months now and i'm loving my natural hair more and more! I admit, during the transition i had some low days wanting to throw the relaxer back into my hair, but i stayed strong this time! i say this time because i tried to go natural last year, but lasted about 3 months and threw the relaxer back in.
My transition since march 2010 wasn't so bad... i kept my hair in braids most of the time after my BC, so it made the days of teeny weenie tiny tiny afro not so bad! i braid my own hair, so that also made it easier on me. i took a break from the braids in july and i have to admit it was hard to rock the tiny afro! my own dad even made comments that made me put my braids back in! what the!
it's all good this time, i took my braids out 2 days ago and have been rocking the twist out, which i love! this is a pic of my 1st twist out i did on myself.... I LIKE A LOT! lol
-i created this blog because after reading so many blogs, websits, youtube and such it gave me the strength to take out my braids and start rocking my natural hair! i to would like to share my story to all and give all you women out there the strength to rock your own natural hair! IT FEELS SO GOOD! my hair is so much thicker without the relaxer, i love the different styles i can put it in, and i've been having a blast experimenting with my hair! its like an ongoing work of art! my mother is also natural, she rocks sista-locs! they are soooo cute on her, which is why I'd been wanting to go natural! I'm so much stronger this time around and i have to say again, I LOVE MY NATURAL HAIR! i was growing out my hair to also throw in the locs, but i love my hair the way it is, so i will not be getting loc'd up.... sorry mom. locs are beautiful, but i will not be getting loc'd up.
i went out last night and i felt so good looking at different women with there weaves, and relaxed hair, and knowing i have the strength to rock MY OWN hair! haha. i love it! i look forward to seeing my hair grow even longer! GO NATURAL LADIES!
