Box Braids: I Did Them Myself!

I’ve always talked about long term protective styles, but I haven’t actually done one since starting my hair journey.  A major element to my personal journey is that I do my hair myself.  Taking control of my hair, learning to be self sufficient, and doing things on my own terms is what makes this exciting for me.  But being d.i.y. has also been why I haven’t done these long term protective

Trying Something New | French Bouffant Rollers

I bought these french bouffant rollers a while ago, like before my relaxer six months ago. And can you believe I completely forgot I had them?  Can you say product junkie?  They were the whole reason that I came up with the idea to do a product haul back in July and I forgot to even include them in there, lol.  But I rediscovered them in my hair care storage bin when I

One thing about me and my hair journey is that I am pretty consistent with what I do.  And one of my main constants is protective styling with a bun.  Before this summer, I was sure that I would be a bun wearer for life.  But things changed abruptly after experimenting with a new protective style.  I’m not even sure what prompted me to try this flat twisted halo hairstyle, but

I've Been Shopping... Hair Product Haul Time!!

Hey Guys! It has been a while since I’ve posted a video to my YouTube channel.  To fix that, I posted my first Hair Product Haul video today.  I don’t normally do these, but recently I’ve been purchasing a lot.  And once I realized how everything was piling up on me, it was a no brainer that I should share with you guys what I got.  There are a lot of
