We’ve all come across them. Maybe we haven’t interacted with them personally, but we’ve seen the out-of-line, rude, ridiculous, and misinformed comments on numerous blogs from these women (and sometimes men), regulating what is and isn’t within the parameters of … Continue reading
OK sooooo… I confess, I haven’t washed my hair (as in a full-on wash day) for perhaps slightly over a month. Partly because I’ve been being lazy about it, partly because… well, no, that’s pretty much it. What finally lit … Continue reading
So most of you know that I’m working towards finding my staple that works with my hair. It’s a tedious task. I work outdoors and it becomes a hassle trying to retain moisture without looking like I stepped out of … Continue reading
So you’ve more than likely read a post or two where I mentioned my fav hair wash, Terressentials Organic Pure Earth Hair Wash and my personal recipe meant to copy and improve said hair wash. You may also have wondered, … Continue reading
I’ve been milling around trying to wait for the muses to hit me with something I can write about and trying fervently not to force ideas out of desperation. Today I came up with this, a fashion and beauty segment. … Continue reading
Hey, everyone! First official post of 2013! I hope you all had a safe and happy holiday. As predicted, the Christmas dinner at my parents’ was hilarious and at some points even awkward. Long story, short, someone took a few … Continue reading
I confess. I peeked at my hair for the first time in over 2 months. Normally, I do my wash day routine and don’t even look in the mirror, which is usually fogged up anyway. Now that I think about it, I haven’t had my hair out all at once since starting this challenge. I digress. I took down my twisted halo style to install a different updo for the next week or two and I had a moment of weakness and ran to the mirror. O… M… G… It looked way bigger than I remembered (I took pictures, but they just don’t seem to do it justice, imo), even with shrinkage. I stretched a piece in the back to check length and discovered my hair had just passed BSL (right under the bra strap).
My hair seems to have rapidly caught up to where it would have been had I not been lazy about my genie locs. That being said, I really dig protective styling now. I’ve discovered some cute styles that are quick and simple (and y’all know I love quick and simple), PS-ing has shaved at least 30 min off the time it takes me to get ready to go out, my hair stays moisturized longer, and I have also shortened the actual washing process of my hair to under 2 hours simply by finger detangling with oil (and water pressure) and leaving my hair in plaits through the whole thing (even moisturizing and sealing). Oh but this will definitely continue beyond the challenge. I hereby resolve to wear my hair out only once in a blue moon and on special occasions.
I’m ecstatic!! But being up all day and night Friday, not going to bed until 8 or 9 AM and losing a day to not waking up until 5:26 PM Saturday has taken its toll on my internal clock. Just as everyone else was finishing up their day, I felt like mine had just started. I was ready for breakfast and “news” (internet buzz) while others ate dinner and had drinks. Here it is 4:04 AM and I’m just now getting sleepy. Here’s a quick pic of my hair wrapped up for bed. I’m bunning my hair (sans Marley hair, I’m proud to say) for the better part of winter.
To make up for my laziness, I’ll throw in some fro shots from earlier today… or yesterday…? I need to go to bed. Clearly. Anyway, excuse the leftover product. It was still a little wet from re-moisturizing in the shower.
Okay so I uploaded this on YT several days ago, but I still thought I’d share it here too. It was Day 52 of my 90 Days of Updos Challenge I assigned myself. I’m now entering the home stretch (12/30/2012 … Continue reading

This experimental wrap was inspired by the way the old T-shirt I used to dry my hair in my Wash Day video looked. It’s different, but I think I like it.
