Senegalese Twists | My Summer Protective Style

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… [Continue Reading]

Straightening Systems for Black Hair

One of the newest phenomenons for Black hair, most often targeted for naturals, are the so-called “straightening systems” which are almost always keratin-based.  Keratin is a protein and when hydrolyzed (fragmented) easily deposits itself on to the hair shaft in the regions of porosity and damage.  Hydrolyzed keratin proteins are small enough to go beyond the cuticle… [Continue Reading]

Inversion Method for Hair Growth – One Inch in One Week

No, that is not a typo in the title.  I’ve seen reports from ladies who claimed (many with photographic support) to have used the inversion method for hair growth to achieve as much as ONE INCH in one week.  Now you know, once I got beyond my initial thoughts of skepticism, I decided to investigate! … [Continue Reading]

Hair Glaze, Rinse, Cellophane – What’s the Difference?

Not long ago, I posted about the benefits of clear rinses for your hair.  Please check out the original post for more info.  At the time, I mentioned that there are a few different forms of clear hair treatments - rinse, glaze and cellophane but that I was unclear on the differences between them, if any but that I would try to find out and report back.  I also promised to try some of the ones available on the market for a comparative review. … [Read more...]

HOTD: Ponytail Pompadour

Pardon the picture heavy post...I was feeling myself just a bit with this look! lol!I set my previously flat ironed hair on two 'Wrap Snap & Go' rollers overnight expecting to get something completely different.  So I decided to pull half of it up, which seems to make most styles look better to me...then I  pulled the back into a low, loose ponytail.  I rarely wear this headband because it doesn't always sit flush against my hair, but I … [Read more...]

New Challenges with New Regimen

Messy Bun the day before the "cut" *tear*For those who have not visited my hair regimen tab at the top of the blog, recently I made some pretty big changes to my products.  I prepoo, wash, deep condition weekly along with daily moisturizing and sealing and monthly clear rinses.  However instead of using mostly natural ingredient products and erring on the side of moisture, I now use products that contain sulfates, synthetic ingredients, and … [Read more...]

Weekend Recap & Used Direct Heat!

Don't forget to submit your pictures for February's Mini-Challenge:  Best Updo!So if you follow me on Twitter, you may remember me saying that I had to wash my hair by Thursday because I went out of town this weekend.  Well...I really do not like to wash my hair mid week, I prefer to have the entire evening or morning devoted to doing my hair.  I followed my regimen then applied the John Frieda Clear Glaze and airdried with leave-in and Paul … [Read more...]

Side-Swept Vintage ‘Do + Rollersetters, where are ya?!

Yooo-hooo, are you ladies losing steam with the rollersetting challenge?  It seems like I've seen a decline in the posts for setting. Now, that could be you just not posting about wash days, it could be my lack of blog reading & commenting lately (sorry about that), or it could be the fact that February is shorter than January.  Not sure but I just don't want you to lose your motivation and momentum.  I have seen my hair make great strides … [Read more...]

ECP’s Back!!!

Thank you so much for all of your kind, encouraging words!  Right after I wrote my last post, I felt better...it was like a purging of sorts.  Then, you wonderful ladies gave me the support I needed to completely overcome the negativity I was feeling.  I am so grateful to everyone who commented, you didn't treat me as if I were overreacting yet you helped me to realize that I can and will recover better than ever.  Even Traycee (from KISS) … [Read more...]

Post “trim” rant & response

I'm still reeling over recent events with my hair.  I have to be completely honest and tell you that I am extremely unhappy with my hair.  It feels so short to me right now, my sides are barely shoulder length.  Its so disheartening to have setback after setback because of a STYLIST!  To answer a few comments:- I absolutely do NOT think 2-3" needed to be taken off.  This is ridiculous.- I don't think it looks good at all, but thank you for … [Read more...]
