Wash Day | Flexirods on Dry Hair

Sorry about the lighting!In case you haven't heard (cause I've been tweeting and talking about it all week) my daddy is here visiting for the weekend!  And I'm SUPER hype!  He doesn't come as often as my mother and brother do because they are able to get here at the expense of their jobs.  But I love Daddy-daughter time!  One of the things he asked me about prior to arriving is if there was a nearby Reebok outlet because he had a 40% off … [Read more...]

Karaoke with a Black Cowboy!

 I went out last evening after work to celebrate the birthday of my friend Mesha of Me'Shell Nicole Jewelry.  I've talked about her fabulous line of jewelry before and even sponsored a giveaway, which I plan to do again soon.  Anyway first was sushi, which I missed but then we met at a local lounge spot for karaoke.  I've been bunning my hair since Sunday but because I knew I would be going out, I straightened a small section of hair and wore … [Read more...]

Rollersetter Spotlight: Bebezazueta

Bebezazueta (her LHCF username) is one of the heads of relaxed hair that I always drool over when browsing LHCF. When I began to consider doing rollersets weekly, I looked through the 2010 & 2011 Rollersetting Challenge threads for information. TopNotch2010 and Bebezazueta were two consistent setters whose hair I always admired and who obviously benefit greatly from regular rollersets. I saw her progress (going from SL to MBL in under two … [Read more...]

Wash Day: Cheating on my rollerset

This is only the second wash since the start of our challenge that I have not done a rollerset - either wet or dry.  For whatever reason, I was  really missing texture in my hair!  To begin, I first had to detangle and remove as much shed hair from my super flexirod set; I do have a video post on this process for those interested.  After all my hair was twisted (see pic), I added a bit more oil to my hair and double bagged to … [Read more...]

Is there a regimen for that?

A few weeks ago at bible study my awesome, amazing pastor made a statement that made my nod my head madly in agreement.  He said "There are so many regimen seeking Christians."  He went on to explain that our spirituality cannot be accomplished the way many other things in our lives can.  We can't create a bullet point list of rules, create a schedule of what to do and when and expect following those things will make us good Christians.  Our … [Read more...]
