The “Straight” Natural Hair Debate

L4L 3.19-1

Last weekend I had my naturally curly hair professionally straightened using the Beautiful Textures Texture Manageability System. The reaction from family, friends and even strangers has been...interesting. To say the least. I've never lived for anyone else. Likewise I've never styled my hair for anyone else. But, from the reactions I've been receiving you would think I have. After seeing my hair straight for the first time a co-worker told me … [Read more...]

Avoiding Natural Hair Boredom

As you all know I recently had box braids. They were in for almost two months and it was glorious. One of the things I love about natural hair is the versatility, this month is my four year curliversary and I’m loving every minute of it! But, it can be hard not to get bored with natural hair. It takes so much time JUST to wash and condition your hair that once you’re done with that often you have NO time (or desire) to experiment with your … [Read more...]

20 Weeks Post Relaxer?!

20 weeks post relaxer

Thank you ladies for continuing to visit, comment and interact with me this summer...despite my erradic posting!  Between my schedule and technology issues it has been challenging to post as often as I would like to.  I don't say it a fraction as often as I think it, but thank you for your continued support. Anyway, I wanted to chat with you regarding my hair.  As you know I've been in protective styles all summer - two sew in weaves and my … [Read more...]

Random Hair Thoughts!

Hair Ramble

I've been MIA right?!  I can't remember the last time I posted this infrequently.  Long story short, my laptop broke...AGAIN!  I swear I'm not doing anything crazy, I just have been having the worst luck with technology.  My camera died, lightning struck my satellite dish and now this!  In addition a lot of the time I normally dedicate to my blog has been spent exercising and cooking.  Which is actually a good thing, right?  At least I'm … [Read more...]

About the lack of HAIR posts…

Weave Removal - VFH Bob-001

So, you may be wondering why its been a couple of weeks since you've seen a wash day post, hairstyle photos, or just a plain ole' hair update from me.  Well, okay maybe you aren't.  But if you are - its because my hair has been hidden.  I removed my sew in on June 30th, right before I went on vacation to Chicago (you may have seen a few photos on Instagram @EbonyCPrincess).  As I already expressed, I will update you on that process but in a … [Read more...]

Summer Hair: Perfect Your Wash and Go Style


I tried a wash and go style. Once. After "achieving" not so desirable results I swore off wash and gos; I figured they just weren't for me. However, recently my interest has been re-peaked – I blame Instagram. It all started when I researched and wrote “What is the "Curly Girl" Method?”. I was curious and excited about trying the style again. The first time I did a wash and go I used Kinky Curly Curl Custard on freshly washed hair. … [Read more...]

Why Don’t Single Product Line Regimens Exist?!

Motions Hair Care Product Line

Regardless of whether you are relaxed, natural or some point in your hair journey trying new products is fun and almost inevitable.  Some of us are worse than others - but I'm not judging!  The excitement of buying-trying-and-buying usually wears off at some point and the amount of products in your stash ends up being a bit overwhelming.  I've seen ladies purge and even form challenges in an attempt to slow their spending … [Read more...]

Self-Identity: Your New Natural Look

When I went natural I didn't think anything about me would change other than my hair. I naively thought it was *only* about my hair. As you may know, I transitioned for 14 months, the longest 14 months of my life. During that time I struggled with breakage at my demarcation line (the point where the relaxed and natural hair meet) and had trouble finding cute hairstyles and smelling like shea butter allll the time (lol that’s all I used to … [Read more...]
