Twists/Mini twists

Last Thursday I twisted my hair. Actually, I started on Wednesday evening and did the bottom two rows. But anyway, it took me from like 11am to 6:30pm to finish. They were smaller than I originally intended to make them but I think they look very nice. I got tired and made some of them too big so I had to go back and split them in half later. I got tons of compliments at the meeting and everyone thought they looked great. And look at that shrinkage!!! Loving it! Can't wait to see how long it is when I straighten it in September. :-)

Happy tresses!

Faux Bun

So last night I attempted to create a faux bun. I had an epic fail when I true to do the faux bun hawk because I only had two packs of hair and I needed three. So I tried the bun last night and played around with it. It took a while to figure out because when I put my real hair into a bun it was a pretty good size, very hard to hide. But since my hair is uneven lengths (it's shorter in the back than the front because of how I cut it), I can't twist it or twirl it to make it smaller. *sad face* So I played around and then watched a few YouTube videos and then played around some more. I did a one pack bun, a two pack bun, and a bun with a bang (I actually used one side into the bun and the other side as the bang. I wasn't a huge fan of it though). Today I made a choice and the winner is: 

The two pack bun!!!

I wanted to go for something big. Anyway, I like it and the hubby likes it. And I LOVE how well it blends! A friend even asked if it was my hair :-). I went and got another pack of hair today so that I can play around with a bang and practice my Havana Twists. 

Have a Happy Hair Day Everyone!

Heat Damage Rehab: Repair Your Curls

I haven't put any heat to my hair since September 2012 and I PLAN to wait until at least this September before I put any more heat to it, but I've recently been doing some ladies hair who do decide to straighten regularly. These are just some tips from one of my favorite websites,, about how to fix heat damaged hair. I'm hoping to share these tips with my CurlFriends as well as keep them in mind to prevent heat damage to my own tresses.

*in my Marvin Gaye voice* What's Goin' On!

Ok. So once again, it's been a few months since I last posted. But I promise I will continue to get better at this. So "What's Goin' On" lately?:

1. I've recently made my own moisturizer!! But I will make a post about that tomorrow. :-)
2. I attempted to to a Teyonnah Paris inspired hairstyle and I failed. Then I attempted a faux bun-hawk. It was a technical fail only because I only had 2 packs of Marley hair and I needed 3. So I settled on this style by IslandEssence of YouTube.
3. I have recently started doing my friend's hair and I am going to be showing some of their styles as well since they're hair length varies from super short TWA to down their back.

So I apologize for the hiatus because I'm only hurting myself for not keeping better records. But I will continue to work on it :-).

Until next time!
