Wash Day | Lazy, Curly & Cute!

Ebony-C-Princess-Kinky-Curly-Weave-Longing-4-Length (400x400)

I still have the braids from my flexirod updo but they are fuzzy and not really presentable for the world.  I was going to redo them, but truth be told, I'm lazy about my hair right now.  I've always said lazy can be good provided you are doing the bare minimum of moisturizing, washing and conditioning your hair, which I am, otherwise leaving it alone is actually a great thing. My hair is currently 28 weeks (7 months) post relaxer and … [Read more...]

My Protective Style Maintenance | Moisturize & Seal

Jane Carter Solution Hydrate Moisture Mist Quench Seal & Shine

I've had my flexirod updo for about a week and although it took forever and a day to achieve, this protective style is super easy to maintain even through working out!  I noticed with my last sew-in that my hair seemed drier than usual despite consistent spraying with two moisturizing products:  ApHogee Curlific Moisture Rich Leave-In Conditioner (review forthcoming) and Bee Mine Juicy Spritz.  Normally my hair feels soft, moisturized and … [Read more...]

Wash Day | 6 Months Post & Relaxer Thoughts

Owigs Full Lace Wig - Longing 4 Length (2)

Since removing my VIP Luxury Hair extensions, I have been keeping my hair in sections first as twists under my wig but also to wash and condition - something I've never really done before but find necessary with so much new growth.  This week's wash day began by applying warm extra virgin coconut oil to my cornrows; this aided in lubrication as I untwisted and also served to prepoo.  As usual, I used my fingers to detangle and remove shed hair … [Read more...]

Swiss Lace versus Silk Base Closures

Swiss Lace Versus Silk Base Closures - Longing 4 Length

I've shared that my current protective style, a full weave, is my first time every wearing a closure with my sew in.  I've known about closures for quite some time but like many of you, was hesitant to try something new but finally took the plunge and I'm so glad I did!  If you are doing a bit of research, or considering using a closure for the first time, then this post should be particularly helpful to you. Closures, for those who are … [Read more...]

“Night Out” Hair & Makeup – Get Ready With Me

MAC Girl About Town Fishtail Braid - Longing 4 Length Ebony-C-Princess1

It seems many of you are enjoying my "Get Ready With Me" video tutorials?  Thank you for your appreciation!  This week's look is PERFECT for a night out on the town...hence the reason I used MAC Girl About Town lipstick.  To be real, I'm a little scared of rocking a full out smokey eye look...sometimes they look like the person was punched in the eye! Instead I prefer a softer look that is well blended as the photos show. As for the hair, I … [Read more...]

VIP Luxury Hair: Install & Contest Info!

VIP Luxury Hair - Virgin Brazilian Wavy Hair - Longing 4 Length

You may remember my initial look of the beautiful VIP Luxury Hair several weeks ago.  I just had it installed, and the hair is more gorgeous than I expected!  I'm back on my workout grind to knock off these last pounds and I opted to have a full sew in with a closure to continue my stretch and avoid having to constantly "blend" any leave out, which would undoubtedly involve heat. The hair and install are gorgeous (is there another … [Read more...]

Avoiding Natural Hair Boredom

longing4length.com-curlsandmo-hairmotivation

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...]

Ways To Clean Your Scalp While Protective Styling

Curls-and-Mo-Box-Braids-Hairstyle

My last few posts have focused on prepping for protective styling natural hair and hairstyle inspiration for the winter months. I am happy to say my protective (box braids) style is STILL going strong seven weeks after installation. I was planning to take them out this past weekend but they look great and I still receive compliments.  I have cleansed my scalp while they were in so I haven’t had any irritation and my scalp is in good … [Read more...]
