After six weeks, I was ready to remove my box braids for a full wash day. I loved having these box braids and plan on installing them again in May. The hair kept up so well. There was no fraying or frizzing, which I do attribute to the hair that I chose to use (X-pression 100% Kanekalon synthetic hair). By six weeks the only thing that told you their age was
With so many wash day posts from me lately it has been a minute since I’ve done an actual product review. And when I was contacted about reviewing NuNAAT Beauty’s new hair products featuring Brazilian Patauá Oil (pronounced pa-ta-wah) line, I happily accepted. I tested out their new line this past weekend so these are my first impressions of NuNAAT Brazilian Patauá Oil products.
This weekend was a blast from the past. I went to my college reunion, which was so much fun. I forgot how amazing my classmates were and years later they are even more so.

I planned to wash my hair this weekend, but with all of the
I made it to the (almost) end you guys! I’m 23 weeks post relaxer and relaxer day is on the horizon. This second attempt at stretching for 6 months was a little more daunting than the last, but I did my best to be patient with my new growth. In preparation for my relaxer day, I wanted my new growth stretch, but didn’t feel like flat ironing. I opted to just
I have been over this stretch for the past few weeks. The tangles, the longer wash days — the wash days in general, ugh, I’m so close to throwing in the towel. But with three weeks left, I just need to calm my nerves. To help me get through this week I decided to do a roller set. I’m hoping that having some semblance of straighter hair will get me out of
