I chose to use a weave to protect my natural hair during the colder months. I have the perimeter left out and some hair at the top. I ordered my hair from @prettyyycharmmm ( @prettyyycharmsbundles ) and I love it! This is my 4th week with the install and there has been minimal shedding, the hair curls and holds curls with no issue and the hair blends with my natural hair easily. Very satisfied with my purchase. And for those wondering, I have no heat damage!😊 #naturalhair #hair #prettyyycharmsbundles #protectivestyle #particurlynatural
It’s that time of the year again! To begin the process I DCed yesterday using a mixture of raw honey, mayonnaise, jojoba, olive, and vitamin E oil. I applied it to my hair and sat under the dryer for about 20 min then I let my hair cool for an hour or so. I washed my hair out and my hair was so shiny and soft! I had my hair in 12 large twists and I left them in to air dry overnight. Then I woke up today and blow dried each section and flatironed using my PYT flatiron at 350-400 degrees and voila! I usually use grapeseed oil as a heat protectant but the DC left my hair feeling kind of greasy so I chose not to use it this time.
Anonymous asked: I did my big chop back in July of this year , I still had some perm ends. Then I got braids and left them in for about six weeks. I still have some perm ends I don't know whether to cut them or keep them. I want to cut them but then if I straighten it I wonder if it would look awful. Idk what to do. /:
It depends on exactly how much permed ends you have left. If it’s a little then sure go ahead. If it’s a lot I would wait until my hair grows out more and get the rest cut off.
Good morning! I did a braid out on wet hair yesterday using the Jamaican Mango & Lime Locking Wax. I loved the hold it gave without the crunch that gel adds at times. However my hair did take forever to dry so I had to sit under the dryer this morning but it was worth it! #naturalhair #braidout #teamnatural #curlbox #naturalhairdaily #particurlynatural #maybemyhairwilllastmorethanonedaythissummer
Get the look of a full sew in without having to go though the pain of actually getting a full sew in! I (Keon) had some Brazilian hair left over from a sew in that I previously had in my hair. I love the look of long hair but I am extremely tender headed and hate the pain that goes along with installing weaves. So using these hair clips that I ordered from amazon and plain old needle and thread I made these hair clip in extensions. You can use scarfs and other hair accessories, like myself, to avoid straightening the top portion of your hair. But your natural hair will blend over the top portion of the clip ins if you do choose to straighten your hair as well. This is also handy because you can deep condition and wash your hair as often as you want and don’t have to deal with not being able to scratch your scalp when you want (NEED) to🙌. I love these things! #naturalhair #naturalhairdaily #teamnatural_ #curlbox #hair #natural #diy
I used to hate when my twistouts or braid outs weren’t dry and I had no other option but to take them out because I had somewhere to be. Problem solved! Now I have two hair styles in one. While my hair is drying I clip in my extensions and when they’re dry i’ll have a bomb twistout! Winning! #teamnatural_ #naturalhair #naturalhairdaily #curlbox #hair #diy #myhaircrush #manesociety #luvyourmane #dmvnatural
Anonymous asked: I'm thinking about doing my big chop I know my hair will be uneven but I want have any straight ends and afterwards I was going to get marley twist. Is that a good idea? Or should I cut my ends after I take the twist out?
I would get the marley twists with your straight ends and allow your hair to grow out some. That way when you take them out, you’ll have enough new hair to get your hair cut evenly without it being too drastic and you wear and even fro or how ever you choose to wear your hair.
Anonymous asked: I went to the hair salon to do my BC she did it but cut it in layers and left about a inch of perm ends. My hair is already short , but I want to cut the rest off myself but I know it's gone to be uneven because I have more new growth in some places than other. I try twists out my natural hair looks good my ends not so much. Should I cut it or leave it? *sorry for the long question.
Totally depends on you. If you’d like the shape without the permed ends I’d say chop them off. That way you’ll only be dealing with one texture of hair.
