Doing Her Hair Series! | Crochet Senegalese Ponytail With Janet Collection Noir Tantalizing Twist Braid

Crochet Senegalese Ponytail With Janet Collection Noir Tantalizing Twist Braid
This style will be perfect for my sister, Jeanette. She's a pre-teen with a "I'm grown" attitude, but very sweet like gummy bears. So this high-ponytail style would be great for her to swing around, but be very lady-like at the same time!

The Perfect Curl Doesn’t Come In A Bottle

Current Natural Hair Products


I had 28 products at one point: 2 clarifying shampoos, 3 sulfate-free shampoos, 7 leave-in conditioners, 2 deep conditioners, 9 oils, 5 styling products. To me, this was literally a problem, but I couldn’t help myself. I had a tendency to go down the hair aisle when I knew I needed nothing, but went down anyways just to see if there was anything new out.


You read lots of product reviews, ask for samples at numerous stores, and even compare different reviews on numerous blogs. Then you find yourself purchasing the products you have read about and others you just happen to see at the beauty supply store. Now that you have all of these products…how exactly are you going to use them?

Healthy Hair Ingredient | Shea-Hibiscus Crème Recipe



Shea Butter To Protect And Soften Natural Hair

It's time to make my beloved Shea Butter again!


The last time I made Shea Butter was last year (November 2014), called the Shea Butter Crème de la Crème Recipe. As I was using this butter, I found that this particular ingredient (along with other natural ingredients) keeps my hair and body soft and healthy from the harsh winter winds. I loved this butter so much that I decided to tweak the recipe to create a new butter for my specific hair needs.

Healthy Hair Ingredient | Sweet Almond Oil For Shinier And Stronger Hair

12 Benefits Of Sweet Almond Oil For Beautiful Skin & Hair & Improved Health
Sweet Almond Oil For Shinier And Stronger Hair


Natural hair and the cold, winter months surely DO NOT MIX! Try styling your hair in a cute style only to come up with dry curls by the middle of the day. That is surely not a good look.


If you are struggling with dry and crunchy curls, try adding olive oil to your natural hair arsenal. No matter how you use olive oil, your hair will definitely look and feel healthier - even in the dry and cold winter months!

HAIR WARS | The Perm Rod Set: Corkscrew Roll VS Regular Roll

The Perm Rod Set: Corkscrew Roll VS Regular Roll
I was inspired by Vlogger Bargain Princess to do my own hair battles and  "which side" or "style" wins based on the process and how much I liked the style. So I thought I start with one that all naturals would like to know: Is it better to do a Perm Rod Set using the Figure 8 Roll or Regular Roll? Hmm, let's find out!

Healthy Hair Ingredient | Lemongrass Essential Oil Is The Sweetness For Healthy Scalp

Lemongrass Essential Oil Is The Sweetness For Healthy Scalp


Have you ever purchased a hair product and thought that you could create something close to it for budget reasons? Or have you caught the aroma of something you would like in your hair every single day?


I surely have!


I love all products that have a citrus or lemon smell. Those aromas tend to last long in my hair and I love when I catch a whiff of my fruity-hair. I first learned this when I purchased Alikay Naturals Lemongrass Leave In Conditioner and Alikay Naturals Crème Brulee Curling Delight. I absolutely love the lemon smell of both products...however, both are over the budget for my hair care.


I decided to find this scent that I love so much and create my own oils, crèmes, and leave-ins...and I finally found it!

Product Review: ApHogee Pro-Vitamin Leave-In Conditioner


I love using ApHogee products! They are full of protein, smell so good, and they get the job done for my hair. I have used the ApHogee Keratin and Green Tea Restructurizer, which I was a bit wishy-washy on the product. But I saw this new ApHogee product to try as my leave-in...let's see how this one works out.
