Protective Style Series 19.2 | The Journey Of Rubber Band Braids Feat. Black Rubber Bands And Sensationnel Jumbo Braid

Rubber Band Braids Feat. Black Rubber Bands 

So 2 more weeks have passed...and I am ready to take my hair out! I'm absolutely loving my braids with the weather being hot...then cold...then rainy...so having braids definitely help with the craziness of the weather. I will say that I am ready to take my hair out and see my natural hair again.

Protective Style Series 19.1 | Rubber Band Braids Feat. Black Rubber Bands And Sensationnel Jumbo Braid

Rubber Band Braids Feat. Black Rubber Bands 

The last time I did this style was June 2018 as my summer style...and I ready to do it again for Spring Break 2019! So, I did my research again and found that the Sensationnel Jumbo Braid was the absolute best and easiest hair for simple box braids. 

However, this time I was going to use black rubber bands to see how they differ from using the clear rubber bands. On paper, I found the difference between the black and clear rubber bands are:
  1. Clear - breaks easily either putting in or during wear...Black - very durable
  2. Clear - wrap thrice and snug...Black - wrap many times and tight
  3. Clear - can see at the base of the braids...Black - unable to detect because of color
So, my thinking is the black rubber bands would be better to use than the clear rubber bands. So let's try this style out!

How To | Create Your Own Hair Donut For The Perfect Bun


Create Your Own Hair Donut For The Perfect Bun
When it comes to an easy protective style, I will say doing a Bun is my absolute favorite. There are many ways to do a bun, but having a hair donut takes all the guess work of having the perfect bun.

 Instead of puchasing the hair donuts that have the mesh (which can break your hair off) or the donuts have that the synthetic hair (which is just weird to me), you can make your own Satin-Lined Hair Donut!

Check out how!

Quarterly Natural Hair Advancement | Comparing December 2018 and March 2019

*THIS IS A LONG ENTRY*

I decided to let you experience one of the things I do in my Hair Diary! Although I record my triumphs, failures, double failures, and awesome product reviews, I also do something called the "Quarterly Natural Hair Advancement (QNHA)." This entry reflects on the last 3 months comparing with the previous QNHA while giving a summary in one whole journal entry. 

There are a lot of comparisons with lengths, regimens, goals, habits, and hair styles. I also include pictures to show that I have either improved or that I need to improve in a specific area. I started this back in June 2013 and I do the QNHA at the end of the months: March, June, September, and December. Yes, I am very intricate with my Hair Diary...but this helps me perfect my current regimen, helps me with future styling options, reminds me of my hair goals, and just fun to do!!!

Confessing My Own Thoughts | Healthy, Bouncy Natural Curls And Coils

Confessing My Own Thoughts | Healthy, Bouncy Natural Curls And Coils

I just wanted to take this moment and recognize my CURLS!!


It's March 2019 and I've had my hair in protective styles since December with buns, braids, drawstring ponytails, and anything else that would protect my ends. When it was time for Wash day, I decided to take my take with my hair instead of the quick wash.

Thank You For Stopping By!
