I told you last week, I'd be back to update you on my hair....and the reason I took so long is because I waited until after I had my hair appointment.  I didn't want to be talked out of cutting my hair all the way up to shoulder length.  Yep, I did it!  Snip, snip, snip!  As I told you, I will never have an official "big chop" or a final "fully natural" moment because I plan to simply cut my hair as I grow.  Parts of my hair are fully … [Read more...]

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...]

One of my good friends is getting married in a fall wedding this Saturday and as always I am extremely happy for her!  Plus it is an opportunity to see some of my closest friends and we all haven't been together since the LAST time someone was getting married.  Anywhoo, if you are anything like me, the first thing you think upon receiving an invitation is "What am I going to wear?" and "How am I going to do my hair?" I know I'm not … [Read more...]

Fall Style | Hair, Makeup, Fashion with Motions Hair!

Motions Fall Style 029

You may remember the bomb results I got when I rollerset my protective style a few weeks back.  I realized then how amazing Motions Hair Foaming Wrap Lotion is!  There are a lot of setting lotions and products on the market, but this one is really nice because of the medium hold it gives curls without making the hair hard, crunchy or dry. Surprisingly enough, it even gives shine to the hair, probably because of the panthenol it contains … [Read more...]

Finally after talking about blonde, ombre and highlighting for what seems like YEARS I've found the perfect look to get a lil funky with my hair color but still wearable.  This unit is courtesy of Uniwigs, a wig company I have worked with previously.  However, since my last  Uniwigs review they have added glueless cap units to their inventory.  Previously, I had to add my own clips and elastic to the wig since I absolutely NEVER glue down … [Read more...]
