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.

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!

This week in my updates post, I mentioned that I’ve been battling Single Strand Knots. Today I found an excellent article on 10 Tips for Preventing SSKs, by Mane and Chic.

I hope there is a tip you can to arm you in epic this battle!

Happy Hump Day!

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.
