Product Review: Eco Styler Moroccan Argan Oil Styling Gel


 I ran out of my Eco Styler Olive Oil Styling Gel the other day and decided to purchase a new gel from the same ECO family. I have used argan oil products with Cream of Nature products (which I didn't like), so I was hoping that this gel would work out. For starters, I got the smallest pack just to try it out... 

Product Name:

Protective Style Series Vol 7.1 | Braiding Pattern For Crochet Senegalese Twists

My weapon of choice...the crochet needle


Time to change things up with Crochet Senegalese Twists!!


I'm absolutely ready to do Senegalese Twists again...however! 1). I'm not paying $180+ and sitting in a chair for 10+ hours and 2). I'm doing them myself! Now when I say myself, I mean the easy and cost effective way out. Crochet braids of course!


I have done these before with FreeTress PreTwisted Hair. But I thought I try something different this time by using:  Janet Collection Noir TANTALIZING TWIST BRAID

I always do my hair in a stretched state. However, doing the African Threading method can take forever, depending on the style I'm going for. So I saw the Wash Day Routine of The Chic Natural and saw that her stretching routine is brilliant!

My Mane Speaks | Yasss Girl! Big Chop Number 2


My Hair Diary | My Mini Chop From Heat Damage


So I decided to do Big Chop #2 to celebrate my 3rd year of being natural and to cut all the heat damage out! The first time I transitioned, there was literally that ugly stage and I was not going through that again. Besides, I love the TWA look on me. Can you say "fierce and flawless?"


And here comes my mane!

My 3rd Year NappyVersary | My Mini Chop From Heat Damage


My Hair Diary | My Mini Chop From Heat Damage
Look at my damaged hair! I'm about to cut 4-5 inches of hair!!!

Soooo this is my 3rd year of being a naturalista! Yay me!!! I'm so excited and very proud of myself during this year to learn, grow, and understand my hair.



After reflecting on the journey of my relaxed hair to my natural hair of 3 years, I thought about something...I never knew what to do with my hair during those years. Even this past year, I was still not sure what to do with my hair and what products to use. I would experiment to find the best products for me, but something was still not clicking.

Confessing My Own Thoughts | The No-Heat Challenge

When you are wearing a long term protective style, you think about your hair journey and how to better your hair care regimen. I read over my hair diary for this year (2015) and realized that heat has been a huge pain in my journey no matter how or when I use it. So you know what????


NO MORE HEAT!!! LIKE NEVER, EVER, EVER!!!!!

I just won't do it! Nope. I'm done with direct heat! Flat irons, curling irons, and blow dryers just suck. They burn and fry my hair no matter how much protection I would give my hair. So I'm not using them any more!

Then you find yourself commenting on that Instagram picture or video on YouTube, “I wish I had your hair,” or “why won’t my hair do that?” These comments would be followed by all kinds of sad and depressing emojis.

Protective Style Series! Vol 6.4 | How To Remove Crochet Braids Carefully

FreeTress Bohemian Crochet Braids
FreeTress Bohemian is definitely one of the best synthetic hair that I have ever worn. Using this hair provides 1). a long-term style, 2) a cheap style, 3) and one that you can "wake-shake-go!" I absolutely love this hair. I will definitely use this hair again and maybe experiment with different cuts and styles.
So now that I have reflected on this hair, it is time to remove it. I need to give my hair a good cleansing, but I will return to another protective style soon.

This process took me only 45 minutes to remove
