Happy New Year Curl Friends! Welcome to 2013!

As with every new year, my personal resolution is to become better; smarter, more kind, more tolerant, patient, and to love better.

This is the beginning of my first year fully natural.

This Sunday was my first Beauty Day Sunday and as I sat with my clay wash, I decided to plan a few hair goals for myself.

A Picture Says A Thousand Words!

I love this!

My posts have been a bit sparse for the past two weeks because I’ve been on travel. This morning in class, one of my students gave me this picture he drew of me.  He captured my curls perfectly! My heart was, as still is, very full because of this. He’s an amazing artist and I really appreciate the thought! He explained that the quote, “Somebody Loves You Girl” is a line from the Delfonics song Somebody Loves You.

When he blows up, I’ll have a J. Galvez original hung on my wall!

The L.O.C Method: The Morning After

Happy Fierce Friday!

Have you checked out my video, “Natural Hair Tutorial: The LOC Method“?

This video showcases the results!


The style I’m wearing is a partial protective style. It can also be worn by transitioners by rolling the relaxed ends on a perm or flex-rod.
I discuss how changing up my product yielded a different result. Lastly, check out how I untwist my hair for my twist out.

If you have tips to share, spill the tea 🙂

Beauty Day Redux: Finding a New Routine

image

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.

I Took My Afro…Parasailing!

So, I took my afro parasailing…

When I was in Oahu, I went Parasailing

1085 Ala Moana Blvd #101, Honolulu, HI

(808) 591-1280
Prices vary by location but from what I’ve seen, they can range from $35 to $50, which is around what I paid.  (Disclaimer: I was able to get a discount for being associated with the military)

On a Scale of 1-10…I give this 5 afro puffs!!
