Its a snow day here – well, really not really..

Summer Braids!

Hey Guys!

I hope you all had a restful weekend because I sure as hell did!

Spring has officially sprung here in the DMV.. I think anyway. Though¬†its supposedly “spring” here in the DMV (those that don’t know that’s the tri-state area; DC Maryland Virginia) & I put spring in quotes because if you’re from here you know for a fact our spring is just ummmm how do I put this? Pre-spring hahah! Only because the weather is so unstable, we can still get snow till June sef ( I‘m not kidding I think it snowed like ending of May early June some 3/4 years ago). Yeah, that’s our life here, but at least there’s an extra hour of daylight now that we’ve sprung forward; adding an hour that shouldn’t have been taken away in the first place but I digress..

Anywho,¬†I found some super cute natural hair styles that I will be trying this summer, so I thought I’d share.¬†

Super cute Bantu Knots:

Its A Curl Thing – Natural Hair Conference (Recap)

Hey Guys.. I know, I know, its been a looooooooooooooong while. I have no excuses, life’s just been super hectic (in a great way)! Trying to organize everything I have going on is um.. challenging! But I’m proving to myself everyday that it can be done, so here I am.

I’ve been attending quite a number of events – networking, conferences, expos, meetups¬†hahahaha

& the most recent event I attended was a natural hair event ‘Its A Curl Thing’ organized and held at McDaniel College; actual organizers were Kylah Chadwick and Khadijah Poston. ¬†It was a really great, very well put together event & it was executed accordingly. I am so proud to say I was apart of this awesome program and to think these young ladies are juniors in college & can still manage to pull something like this off is amazing! When I was in college I could barely remember what room # my classes were (judge me not), talk less of organizing an event of this magnitude.

I was there as a vendor and met such wonderful people, both the McDaniel students & non-students and even the staff. Seriously, everyone in attendance was so  welcoming & passionate about natural hair.

Here is a quick footage below

Some pictures:

DIY – Simple Way To Moisturize Your Hair!

Hey guys!

I’ve been meaning to blog about this for a while but umm hmm procrastination is a mutha! But I have finally overcome.

Okay so my hair used to get mighty, I mean super uber duper dry to the point it had flakes & it was just.. bad. I would put only oil on my scalp but then I learned that oil only seals the moisture in your hair & since my hair was already uber dry when I applied it, that meant it was sealing..? You guessed it, dry ass hair! Desperate, I jumped on YouTube to hopefully find a solution & thank God I did. heres the vid I found verrrry helpful with creating the mixture to help me moisturize my hair. 

I mix Coconut oil, Olive oil, Jamaican Castor oil, Tea Tree oil, ¬†Palmer’s Olive Leave-in Conditioner, Palmer’s Hair milk, and most importantly a lot of water in a spray bottle. (Dont pay attention to the meat in the background hahaha I mean I gotta eat).

P1

Also don’t clown my spray bottle hahaha I know people actually go out & buy¬†this one below but I didn’t feel the need to go spend some more money when I have empty bottles of body sprays laying around.

So yes, I used this empty one from Bath & Body Works (which smells so good btw) and still worked for the purpose of this

My Spritsz Bottle.jpg

So I put water up to like a good 60% like this

Then I added the oils & conditioner in no particular order or measurement, I kinda just eyed everything. I was really heavy handed on the tea tree oil though since it has really the anti fungal components in fighting the flakes on my scalp I got due to dry hair. Now I’m not quite certain if I am allergic to coconut oil just yet, so I just added just a bit. And voi¬∑la! Here is the mixture up close & personal!

Here’s another angle.

Its quite easy to make & let me tell ya it has done wonders for my hair! I try to spray my hair every other day or at the very least 2 day interval. My hair feels so much better & hydrated! 

Tell me how you keep your hair moisturized & if maybe you’re gonna give this a try.
