After removing my weave, I realized I wanted to WEAR my hair.  Yes, the struggle of all these different textures and lengths (as I've cut away breakage and relaxed hair) makes it difficult to maintain my transitioning hair while working out, but sometimes that struggle is completely worth it to just enjoy my hair! Even if it is just for a few days.  Since I was sent a set of products from Good Hair in a Bottle, including setting foam, I decided … [Read more...]

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

For a bit of change from the naturally wavy/curly look, lately I've been rollersetting my weave (10 Minute Hollywood Sew In) and rocking the resulting loose curls.  One of the advantages to rollersetting is the lasting power of the style,and I find that pin curling allows me to rock sleek curls for 1-2 weeks before they begin to look old.  Many ladies shy away from pin curling because they are never able to get the same smooth day 1 results. … [Read more...]

How to Wash Transitioning Hair - Longing 4 Length

Since starting a new job, I haven't had as much time to chat hair with you ladies and its been months since I caught up on my favorite hair blogs.  Thank goodness for the Senegalese twists I wore for the past several weeks; I thoroughly enjoyed how little maintenance they required.  Hopefully you enjoyed all that I shared regarding my twists (wash regimen, styles, how to moisturize, etc).  I took them down after about 7.5 weeks and my hair … [Read more...]

Sew In Weave with Net and Hair Left Out (How To)

How to Do a Sew in Weave – Longing4Length.com (2)

While I was home in New Jersey, I did a lot of hair, including quite a few sew in weaves.  It was always for family, so we don't charge one another money, but my price is agreeing to be featured on L4L.  Taking pics - with smiles, sans attitudes - is non-negotiable!  My cousins didn't mind so much, especially since I gave everyone hair, but my mom always catches an attitude.  Whatever! No pics, no hairdo - the end! So, my mom is my model for … [Read more...]
