When Your Ends Are Dry And Crispy 

“My ends are so dry!” This can be so frustrating when you just put in your leave-in moisturizer, dabbed your ends with oil, and finished off with your favorite butter – just to find out that your hair is dry right when you get into work.

I used to be so confused on why my hair would not retain moisture during the day, especially my ends, and then I did some re-evaluating. If you have this issue, here are some things you should consider:

Weave Tips | Prepping The Hair For Long-Term Style

African Threading For Stretched Natural Hair

Time to go back to my favorite braids and get my long-term protective style:

Senegalese twists!

I get this style at least 2-3 times a year to 1). put my hair away, 2). reboot from doing my hair so much, and 3). get over my hump and frustrations of running out of styling options I'm WILLING to do. Here is the series line-up:
  1. Prep your hair for Senegalese Twists
  2. Getting your hair braided at the salon 
  3. Tips to care for the long-term protective style 
  4. Different styles for your protective style 
  5. The journey of having the actual style 
  6. Taking out the protective style
Protective styling is great for 1). protecting the ends of your hair, 2). help retain length, and 3). be a useful tool to take a break from natural hair. To properly prepare my hair, I will follow this regimen:
  • Pre-Poo and Detangle: 5-10 minutes (overnight, optional)
  • Cleanse/Co Wash: 5 minutes
  • Protein Treatment : 5 minutes
  • Deep Condition: 15 to 30 minutes
  • Oil Rinse: 5 minutes
  • Air Dry Until Damp: 30

6 Raving Products I Tried That Did Not Work Me

Whether you have a set regimen or not, you know better than to just purchase products on a whim.

Everyone knows that you must read 30 good and bad product reviews, watch 20 YouTube product reviews, and see if the product made it in the “empties” pile on numerous blogs before making a decision. I’m the opposite... I purchase everything to try!!!

Quarterly Natural Hair Advancement | December 2015 And March 2016

Purchase Yours Today! Order On Classy Curlies


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!

Thank You For Stopping By!
