Today I was told that I was someone’s hair crush! That definitely made my day! But at the same time sadness came over me because I have not been keeping up with the blog! Adult life is very demanding plus I’ve had some real hair laziness over here. I go through that a lot when I’m ready for a hair change… Hence the me going back to red hair…. I’ll try a different color one day but red just look so good on me *flips hair*

Now that I have color I have to overcome this laziness because E don’t like damaged hair. I’ve changed up my products, which I actually use less of now. I’ve been sticking to the basics leave in, oil, and using hair butter mostly on the colored hair it needs it the most. I’ll be doing more styling, which means new videos! Yay! Stay tuned!

My natural hair journey is unique because I decided to transition as a method to grow out my natural hair instead of doing the big chop. In other words, I basically stopped receiving a perm because it caused my hair to thin as well as break off.
Many people who went the transitioning route will tell you that there are positives and negatives to transitioning, but I loved it for the most part. I love transitioning because I was able to retain my hair length (I was used to styling my hair long). The main problem with transitioning is that I I had to blend two different hair textures. As a solution to the blending problem, I usually wear my hair in a twist out now. When I am tired of doing twist outs, I alternate between low manipulation buns or I will install crochet braid. In order to get rid of the perm hair, I trimmed my hair every two or three months.

Good and Bad Hair

For about two weeks I’d been working on a post about the whole texture discrimination issue. I had a very thorough write up too! If you guys read it you would think I was just angry! Lol I wasn’t I was just giving my opinion.

Welp as you can see I decided not to post it ( I know all that hard work gone ). What I wrote was simply just an opinion that may or may not rub people the wrong way. I decided that I did not want to add more fire to the fuel ( did I say that saying right).

I love how going natural has evolved over the years but I don’t like how it seems to be a popularity contest. Does it really matter whose blog gets the most likes and subscribers?!?! ( a snippet from the write up I didn’t post). Everyone brings there own character and energy in their videos.

I lust over my own hair. Of course you all have beautiful hair too but I love my own just a little more! As I always say your hair is YOUR hair! So what’s all the fuss about?!?!

Naturellegrow Deep Conditioner Review

Since we started the 30 day hair challenge. I’ve been using the Mango Coconut water Infused Deep Conditioner weekly.

I can feel myself ready for a hair change (another color) so I wanted to get in the habit of deep conditioning weekly instead of bi-weekly.

So far I love the smell of the product lol and I love how soft it makes my hair feel after I’ve let it sit for about 30 mins. I don’t sit under the dryer I place a cap over my head and a towel for the heat and busy myself until it’s time to wash the conditioner out.

Doing weekly deep conditioning I’ve noticed that my hair looks shiny and again feels softer. I like to detangle my hair when I apply the deep conditioner and I’ve found that it makes my hair manageable when doing so.

I really like the look of my hair after it’s air dryed ( of course I add in my fav leave in and oil combo)
