Spring Cleaning 2

Spring is finally here! And despite Mother Nature’s unwillingness to let go of the cold, I’m excited and ready for the warmer months ahead…but I’m not so sure I can say the same for my natural hair.

You may be wondering if that’s even possible but trust me it is.  My hair, just like with anything else in life when its good it’s good but when its bad oh man…it’s bad. And we all know how a bad hair day can affect everything else. … [Read more...]

Shampoo Bars v. Liquid Shampoo

Shampoo Bar versus Liquid Shampoo - Longing 4 Length

If you’re like me then you’ve tried pretty much every product or type of product on the market. I have been natural since November 2009 so I enjoy experimenting but I don’t enjoy how time consuming and expensive it can be sometimes. But one of my new favorites are shampoo bars. Shampoo Bars are a relatively new concept and they're becoming more popular as more companies (especially small businesses) make them. My first Shampoo Bar was … [Read more...]
