Fierce Friday Gratuitous Post | Turbans & Headwraps ARE Protective Styles, Too!

Happy Friday!
For this weeks Gratuitous Post, I decided to share with my readers who hate traditional protective styles that Turbans & Headwraps are protective styles too!
PhotoGrid_1401563628099If you have an extensive scarf collection like I do, you may want to explore learning how to tie a headwrap or turban! You can also go to a local fabric store and purchase 1.5-2 yards of your favorite fabric and create a unique look that’s not already in your closet. Joann Fabrics has weekly 50% off coupons for fabric! They also take competitor coupons.  Mixing and match the colors and patterns to accessorize your outfit for the day is fun! They work for natural, transitioning, and relaxed hair, can be used to disguise a bad hair day or the fact that you’re deep conditioning while running errands,  and are appropriate at a variety of settings!

Beauty Day Redux: Finding a New Routine

Yesterday was Beauty Day. Since I BC‘d, I’ve been trying to edit my old hair routine. Initially I tried the “go with what you know” method on my fully natural hair, but it wasn’t working simply because my hair completely lacked moisture after sealing. I am uncertain as to whether or not it is the method (liquid leave-in, creamy leave-in, and butter to seal) that isn’t working or the products (modified kimmaytube leave-in, giovanni direct leave-in, and homemade shea butter cream) I was using. At any rate, I’ve decided to start from scratch and try again.

Balancing Natural Hair and Extracurriculars

In an earlier post, I posted information about a belly dance group, A Magi Belly Dance Company. I have been dancing with this group since at least 2009. Recently I was able to get a hold of some pictures from a wedding event we participated in called Weddings Around the World.  It was an event that hosted wedding vendors.  We performed as a part of the venue entertainment, as well as to advertise our Goddess Bridal Parties.  Goddess Bridal Parties are an alternative to the ordinary. Anywho, I was going through the pictures and looking at my hair. Again, I am 15 months into my transition, so my ends are still relaxed…I really wanted to know how well my hair held up during a performance.
