Well can I?!?!?!

The Taboo question. “Can I touch your hair?” Some people don’t mind and some do. In all honesty I get a little uneasy about it because I don’t know where folks hands have been and you want to rub them through my hair! Oh no! I do appreciate the strangers that do ask, most times I let them get a quick feel. But not knowing where those fingers have been though! 😷 lol. To be fair ladies just think if you’re one of those people who like to feel on others hair would you be ok with random people approaching you to feel on your hair? Just be mindful of that when you see someone whose hair you are itching to touch and please, please, please ask first!

BIG CHOP

Posted on Updated on

I had to go through some archives to find that left picture….. but we do it for the naturals. Since it’s “Throwback Thursday” I decided to share that I chopped my hair off twice! Big difference right?!?! That 2006 picture proved that I knew nothing about being natural back then lol!
The first big chop was for obvious reasons but the second big chop was out of curiosity. I’ve always had long hair so being that short was different and I like different ( hence that piercing in my hand I know you all have noticed and yes that is a tattoo on my thumb as well ) 🙂 and I loved it! Low maintenance, wash and go’s were my thing, but I hadn’t quite grasp the no heat regimen.
Ladies I’m here to help you learn from my mistakes. Before I did my big chop I let my hair grow out a little more so I still had relaxed ends and heat damage from blow drying and flat ironing. I was using sulfate shampoos, but I kept hair moisturized and conditioned and I had never heard of protective styling ( see I had no clue). My hair didn’t grow as much as I thought it would until my BC.
My advice is if you’re going to BC really BC and if your going to color and straighten your hair make sure you keep an eye out for breakage and heat damage and I highly recommend that if you recently had color not to keep braids in your hair, otherwise you’ll be wondering why your TWA has been the same length for over a year.

Found an article on Homemade Shampoo and Conditioner. I plan on giving it a try especially the shampoo!

I’m growing my hair out a little.  I want a bit of a ‘fro.  I don’t post too much about my hair here but I post occasional photos on Instagram.  Since I cut my hair, I haven’t been too concerned about the products I use.  As long as it looked how I wanted and wasn’t breaking, I was fine with it.  But now that I want to grow it a little, I’m more conscious of its health.  I find that I get the best growth and length retention when I use products that are mostly natural/homemade.

I absolutely love Aubrey Organics shampoo and conditioner.

But total cost for these 2 items is over $22.  Sometimes I splurge.  Most of the time, I just make shampoo and conditioner.  It costs me $2.50 to make 8 ounces of conditioner and $1.18 to make 8 ounces of shampoo.  And I would…

School, Work, and Hair

The fact that I have a full time job and go to school full time can be very overwhelming! Sometimes knowing that I have to get up and do my hair in the morning stresses me out especially when I hit the snooze button 3 times! What is a girl to do?!?!?!

Well……. I’ve started planning out my hair week. No lie I skim through Pinterest and pick a style or two for the week that I know I could rock for a while or I pick a protective style that will last me until my next wash or co-wash day.

Believe me this has been such a load off of trying to do my hair EVERYDAY it’s impossible, for me at least. So far all you natural girls who live a full life or even natural mommies try this and see if it helps take the load off your hair! E.H.

Welcome to Texture Chronicles! A blog about hair! Obviously right! This blog came about with the abundance of questions about how to’s and what products are used and different styling techniques. The name Texture Chronicles comes from the fact that no one has the same hair texture, so everyone doesn’t use the same hair products or have the same regimen. In no way are we hair experts but with the help of our lovely hair stylists, and at home regimens we take good care of our hair and here we are sharing those tips with you! Being natural has NO rules, ONLY your rules. Our goal is to get back to when being natural was not categorized by hair type or if your hair is kinky or curly enough. Remember…..Just be you. Just be natural.
