Wash Day | Transitioning Hairstyle Updo (Great for Relaxer Stretchers Too!)

Transitioning Hairstyle Updo (Featured Image)

I have no intentions of wearing my hair "loose" too often as I grow out my relaxer, but every now and again between long-term protective styles I get the urge to get a little creative and play in my hair.  I have to make sure its properly conditioned and of course create some cute transitioning hairstyles along the way! This week, I followed my normal wash day routine for transitioning hair:  1) prepoo with EVCO and Dark & Lovely Knot … [Read more...]

Senegalese Twists | 4 Easy Twist Styles

Senegalese Twists Styles - Longing 4 Length

One concern I had when I decided to install Senegalese twists was how versatile the style would be.  As you all know by now, I enjoy changing up my look and the idea of being restricted to one look for several weeks was not ideal, no matter how great a protective style it may be.  However, after a couple of weeks, my hair loosened up a bit to allow me to move the twists freely and I have rocked a few different looks.  Even with the large size … [Read more...]

Senegalese Twists | My Summer Protective Style

Senegalese Twists - Longing 4 Length

For several weeks now, I planned to wear box braids as my summer protective style but at the last minute began to consider Senegalese twists instead.  I asked all L4L Facebook fans which style I should get and unanimously you all responded "TWISTS!" so that's what I went with.  You're so smart!!!  I absolutely love the look of my Senegalese twists and am happy I chose this style. Many of you have already had a look at this style from … [Read more...]

Salon Visit, Hair Cut + Transitioning!

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

Listen, when I went to the salon this week saw that ONCE again, I reached bra strap length...but the last three inches or so were literally scraggly, see through ends yet again...I'd HAD it.  Seriously.  So many ladies have shown us that relaxed hair can grow long, strong and healthy to BSL and beyond (I'll have another post with my favorite relaxed vloggers & bloggers) but there is also a whole sect of relaxed ladies whose hair thins once … [Read more...]

Wash Day | Lazy, Curly & Cute!

Ebony-C-Princess-Kinky-Curly-Weave-Longing-4-Length (400x400)

I still have the braids from my flexirod updo but they are fuzzy and not really presentable for the world.  I was going to redo them, but truth be told, I'm lazy about my hair right now.  I've always said lazy can be good provided you are doing the bare minimum of moisturizing, washing and conditioning your hair, which I am, otherwise leaving it alone is actually a great thing. My hair is currently 28 weeks (7 months) post relaxer and … [Read more...]

My Protective Style Maintenance | Moisturize & Seal

Jane Carter Solution Hydrate Moisture Mist Quench Seal & Shine

I've had my flexirod updo for about a week and although it took forever and a day to achieve, this protective style is super easy to maintain even through working out!  I noticed with my last sew-in that my hair seemed drier than usual despite consistent spraying with two moisturizing products:  ApHogee Curlific Moisture Rich Leave-In Conditioner (review forthcoming) and Bee Mine Juicy Spritz.  Normally my hair feels soft, moisturized and … [Read more...]

ECP Goes Blonde! Eva Wigs Full Lace Unit

Eva Wigs Full Lace Wig - Longing 4 Length

Hola ladies!  With the huge popularity of the blonde bob, I've been teasing about possibly going blonde for the summer for months.  Well...here is my chance.  After seeing this full lace unit from Eva Wigs and immediately envisioned myself recreating Ashanti's Braveheart promotional look she's been rocking lately or Ciara's edgy bob from 2013.  Either way, I first wanted to try the unit on, get a feel for which way I wanted to go and of … [Read more...]
