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...]

Wash Day | Flexirod Updo at 6 Months Post Relaxer

♥ ❣ ❤♥ ❣ ❤♥ ❣ ❤

I went home to New Jersey for a weekend and as I always do whenever I'm home, I visited my trusted stylists!  Let me tell you, the lion mane that is my new growth was in full force and all but roared when I unleashed it from beneath my full lace wig! A bit of history about my hair journey, I was natural until I was 14 and again at 18.  So I am very familiar with my natural texture, unlike some ladies who only have a vague idea of their … [Read more...]

Crochet Braids: A Great Protective Style

Crochet_Braids_2013_Simply Into My HAIR

When we speak of long term protective styles, the first options that come to mind are usually sew-in weaves, wigs, braids and/or twist hairstyles.  Crochet braids are a lesser known, but equally great protective style that works wonderfully for natural, relaxed and transitioning  hair. Crochet braids are a styling technique that involves braiding your hair into a cornrow base.  Just like with a sew-in, various braiding patterns are used … [Read more...]

“Night Out” Hair & Makeup – Get Ready With Me

MAC Girl About Town Fishtail Braid - Longing 4 Length Ebony-C-Princess1

It seems many of you are enjoying my "Get Ready With Me" video tutorials?  Thank you for your appreciation!  This week's look is PERFECT for a night out on the town...hence the reason I used MAC Girl About Town lipstick.  To be real, I'm a little scared of rocking a full out smokey eye look...sometimes they look like the person was punched in the eye! Instead I prefer a softer look that is well blended as the photos show. As for the hair, I … [Read more...]

Wand Curls Without A Curling Wand Tutorial

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

This post is for all the ladies who - like me for a LONG time - do not see the value in purchasing a curling wand, or simply haven't taken the splurge yet.  I understand, trust me!  For the longest time I held off purchasing one because I figured I already had an arsenal of various sized curling irons plus my flat iron which can also be used to create curls.  Plus, being all about healthy hair the way I am...how often do I use direct heat … [Read more...]

HOTD: Bun & Bangs

HOTD Bun and Bangs - Longing 4 Length

One of the reasons I wanted to try blunt bangs is because I believe they make even the "bummiest" style look cute, polished and a tad bit edgy.  Case and point - I decided to pull and old braidout up into a high bun and although it wasn't the sleekest, neatest bun in the world, the straight bangs were like a bow on a present. Anddddddd, I finally got my hands on MAC's Heroine lipstick.  I'm not one that goes crazy over limited edition … [Read more...]

Wash Day: Airdried Bun

Airdried Bun

I've not been a woman of my word lately at all!  First, I said I was going to wear wigs and protective style from October to December...but I've had my hair out since my touch up.  I had some professional obligations for which I felt most comfortable wearing my own hair so that is the primary reason I haven't put it away just yet.  Then I said I was going to do a half and half comparison with the Kerastase and Kerapro conditioners, but … [Read more...]
