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

Wash Day: Pre-Relaxer & Flexirod Updo

Today's UpdoSeems like its been a while since I posted actively about MY hair!  I've been busy and luckily had a few pre-written posts to stay plugged in with you ladies!  So anyway, I wore my hair cornrowed under my u-part wig for about 2 weeks.  I rollerset my hair prior to braiding which may seem like overkill, but it made braiding a cinch and my hair seemed much less coarse with no tangles after removing the braids. … [Read more...]

Reader Q: What are the benefits of doing a clear rinse?

One of the questions I received last month was in regards to the clear rinse I did on my hair.  I mentioned briefly in this wash day update that I used the Jazzing Clear Rinse and subsequently a reader asked what its benefits were.  I think it is a great question and recorded a video last week explaining the difference.  I have to always remember that not all of my lovely blog followers also subscribe to my YouTube channel and vice versa; I … [Read more...]

Curling Wand on Tonsure U-Part Wig

As much as I dislike Kim Kardashian and her fame for releasing her own sex tape amongst other shenanigans (that's a rant for another day), I must give the girl props - her hair and fashion game are almost always on point!  So, like most other u-part wig wearers, I did my own KK-esque inspired look with my Plugged In Clampless Curling Wand.  I love the look - another "instant sexy" for me! lol.This wig looks great straight but I think I prefer … [Read more...]
