I had another fantastic wash day this week!  I decided I wanted to see my hair straight.  Originally I planned to do a roller set on my natural hair, followed by flat ironing.  However, I was more than pleasantly surprised that the roller set yielded smooth, fluffy and relatively straight hair!   So I ended up skipping the flat ironing and still ended up with a cute style - without using direct heat! *dances little jig* To begin, as … [Read more...]

Wash Day | Flexi Rod Set On My Natural Hair

flexirod set on 4c natural hair

I felt like hitting the dougie, the quan, the whip and the dern nae nae with this week's wash day results!!!  Do ya'll remember the horrific wash day that left me in tears and fighting the temptation to just chop my hair off?  Or the many flexirod fails I had during my transition?  I honestly thought that flexi rod sets (as much as I love them) were a thing of the past once I decided to stop relaxing my hair.  Yes, I know other naturals do … [Read more...]

Summer Curls | Perm Rod Set


Remember my epic fail at attempting a flexirod set earlier in my transition?  And what I didn't share is that I also attempted curlformers as well (I also tried them while fully relaxed also...still can't get it) and it too was an epic fail.  As great as I was at rod sets while fully relaxed, I truly struggled to find a good curly hair style for my transitioning hair.  I only wish I tried perm rods sooner!!!  The curls from this perm rod set … [Read more...]

Wash Day | Jumbo Perm Rods (On Weave)

Jumbo Perm Rod Set

Finally, I'm back with a wash day post!  The last time my hair was washed, it was at the salon for my current sew-in weave so there was really nothing to report.  I washed my hair last week (click here for 'How to Wash & Condition Your Weave') using Good Hair in a Bottle products. Since I began working with this company, I've found my hair really does respond well to them (particularly the conditioner) so they have become my go-to … [Read more...]

Wash Day | Flexirods on Dry Hair

Flexirods on 4C Natural Hair

Arguably my favorite two styles of all times are roller and rod sets.  While relaxing my hair, I had gotten to the point where I was able to set my hair in 45 minutes or less and with my amazing dryer, would also dry in about the same amount of time.  I prefer not using direct heat whenever possible plus these styles last for a week.  However, since transitioning (aside from a salon visit) I have only had flexirod failures, one of which … [Read more...]

Roller Set on Transitioning Hair | Good Hair in a Bottle Review

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...]

How to Pin Curl Hair WITHOUT Dents!


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...]

Wash Day | How To Roller Set Weave (Sew-In)
