Officially Natural {Natural Hair}

The transition journey came to an end late Wednesday night. I couldn’t take it any more, so I grabbed the scissors and cut off the last few ends of straggly relaxed hair. Transitioning Over the course of the last year, my hair has gone from straight to curly and a little bit of everything in [...]

I Did the Big Chop…Kinda~Sorta

I started transitioning from relaxed hair to natural hair in July of last year.  I am totally enjoying the freedom and liberty that comes with natural hair.  Last week, I cut the last bit of relaxed hair off (I was so incredibly frustrated and tired of dealing with dual textured hair).  Before I cut it, [...]

My Hair Mantra: Fluff and Go

It’s been eight months since my journey from relaxed to natural hair began and I am still going strong. I’ve resisted the urge to relapse and I haven’t scalped myself either so I’m pretty happy. I also posted pictures on flickr. Of course, I’m having a fabulous hair day so I’m happy…

Hair Ties

For twelve years I was addicted to the “creamy crack” ~ it made my hair so soft and manageable, swingy and straight, absolutely beautiful. I loved the flexibility that relaxing offered ~ I could wear it straight, curly, in a bob or pulled into a sleek chignon with little jewels embedded in the braid…. I [...]

Holiday Hair

Curly Nikki asked her readers to share their holiday hair plans with her, so here are my plans: 1. I did my first co-wash yesterday. Co-washing is basically washing your hair with conditioner. It enhances moisture and eliminates the use of shampoos that strip hair of natural oils. 2. I parted my hair and used [...]

Caught Between Dryness and a Grease Spot

Well it’s been about 3 weeks since my last update on my hair transition and I’m still going strong. Barely. I’ve gotten to that point where I’m becoming increasingly frustrated for a variety of reasons: 1. I honestly don’t know what to do with my hair anymore. I’m so used to being able to run [...]

Transitioning Thank Yous

When I decided to transition from relaxed to natural hair, I knew I’d have bad hair days. I had them when my hair was chemically treated so why not now? When I had bad hair days with my relaxed hair, I’d just pull it into a pony tail and go. Now I’m dealing with wavy [...]
