As I approached the 3rd year writing this blog, I decided to change the site address to a name! Although initially the name I chose held significance to me, I wanted readers (old and new) to associate the site with natural hair.

Night Time, Is the Right Time to Moisturize and Seal!

Right before bed each night, I take the time to moisturize and seal my hair. It’s a really simple process that takes me less than 15 minutes and my hair is eternally grateful!

        1. No more crunchy dry hair in the morning, just soft touchable hair that lasts throughout the day!
        2. My hair has been significantly less tangled (which means a reduction in single strand knots, thank the Lord!)

        3. My hair has more volume in the morning, which I love! The bigger the better!

My Method:

Fairy, One Strand, Peppercorn, Pixie, Single Strand Knots…Oh My!

No matter how you refer to or identify them, they are a nuisance!

The bane of my natural hair existence!

Currently, I am 2.5 years post relaxer, 6 months post BC.

I’ve been beside myself since I BC’d; I’ve been so enamored with my hair that I’ve abandoned my tried and true protective styling for the most part.

My plan is to return to protective styling for at least 4-5 days a week and let it all hang out on the weekends.
