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!

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!
That’s it! I just wanted to keep you all up on how my natural hair journey is going!
I know it’s been a minute since my last staple hair product review, but I was trying to wait until I repurchased this product. I still don’t actually have this product in my stash, but I wanted to get this review out of the way. I still love it, I’m just trying to use up some of my other products.
Shea Moisture Curl & Style Milk is a conditoner that can be used on wet or dry hair. I use it to refresh my hair when I think it needs a little moisture. It retails for $10-$11 and can be purchased at Walgreens or Target.
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!
The next product in my Staple Hair Product Review Series is Curls in a Bottle! by Curl Junkie. This glycerin-free gel is a lightweight gel that can be used for styling or as a finisher. I usually use this on top of other products as a last step to keep the frizzies away for my wash & go styles. This gel retails for $19 for 12 ounces of product. It can be purchased at www.curljunkie.com, www.aveyou.com, and select other retailers.
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.
