I Finally Did a Twist Out on My TWA, Here’s How!

My oh my, what a long way I have come — what a long way I have come! I am pleased to say that my hair is finally at a length in which I can do more to it than a simple ‘Wash and Go’, haha!

Big Chop Update – 6 Months In!

Big Chop, TWA, Natural Hair

I didn’t think I’d ever chop all of my hair off — let alone make it to being fully natural for what is now half a year! I am so excited to highlight making it past the 6 month mark since my big chop back in August. My hair is still in tact, it’s actually looking better than ever — and I’m not itching to go back on the “Creamy Crack” (a.k.a Relaxer). Thus far, my journey has been a…

How to Use a Diffuser + My Updated Wash + Go Routine!

It’s winter and there is no way I’m stepping outside with wet hair, so I recently invested in a diffuser to speed up the drying process.

Here’s a simple tutorial on how to diffuse your hair…

My Big Chop Experience, Tips and Current Favorite Products

So I had a brief hiatus as I got settled in to my my new job and worked on our New York Fashion Week show, but I am so happy to be back to blogging. Since my big chop I haven’t had a chance to properly discuss my experience or even give more detail as to what my reasoning is behind having done it.

My New Go-To Transitioning Hair Style: The Braid + Curl

For those of you who have been reading my blog for some time now, you know my go-to style since I’ve been transitioning is a flexi rod set. Lately, however, I’ve been looking to do a style that takes up less of my time so I’ve been rocking a braid and curl. This style uses way less rods and honestly is much easier and quicker in my opinion to accomplish — it gives a nice textured look as well, which…

My Natural Hair Update: 6.5 Months Post-Relaxer

I honestly can’t believe that it has been almost 7-months since the last time I have gotten a relaxer! The time literally flew by and I am really pleased with the way my journey has gone so far. I’ve definitely learned a bit along the way, and continue to do so. I haven’t been the best at “length checking” and whatnot to document my progress, so figured it’s about time I do a video to compare to my 4-month update…
