My Puff Tutorial

I am not very good with hair styling. I know how to take care of my hair, but that is pretty much it. I can’t do exotic, unique styling to it. The puff is pretty much the extent of styling that I can do. It is super easy, but I always get compliments when I wear it. This video was requested, so I decided to show you how I do my puff. Enjoy!

My Straight Hair

I got my hair done, finally! Last time my hair was done by someone other than me was back in May 2012. Needless to say, I was long overdue! My stylist trimmed about 1 inch of my bad ends off. She also colored, blow-dried, and flat-ironed me. This process took about 4 hours. I like the results and I’m surprised by my length! My hair has never, ever been this long before!

The 1st picture is when I originally got all my relaxed ends cut off. The 2nd picture is my most recent trim. Please excuse the wildness in the 2nd picture, it was a very windy day!

Tip Tuesday #8: Save with Samples!

When I started my natural hair journey, I went a little (a lot) product crazy! I watched so many YouTube videos and read blogs and forums that fed my product addiction. I was constantly searching for the perfect product. Unfortunately, quite a few hair companies that cater to kinky/curly hair can be on the expensive side. Keep reading to see how you may be able to save some money!

Tip Tuesday #1: Tips for Transitioners

Welcome to my new series! Starting today, I will be posting some type of hair, makeup, skin care, or overall beauty tip every Tuesday. This series will consist of tips I have learned over the years from my own experience.

For the first installation in this series, I wanted to tackle some tips for my transitioners. By the term “transitioner,” I mean the ladies who are growing out their relaxer and transitioning to natural hair. The picture shown above was taken approximately a month before I cut my relaxed ends completely off. I know from personal experience, that it can be difficult to mix the 2 textures of hair, which can lead to frustration and/or rash decisions (ie. go back to the relaxer, or chop it off). Hopefully the tips listed below can be of some help to you in dealing with your transitioning hair.
