Your Bonnet Could Be Costing You Your Edges?!?!

Happy Friday ! Yayyyy! 

I had an epiphany & I figured hey, since I’m just now putting two & two together, others out there may not know either! Okay, so If you’re noticing your edges thinning out or breaking and you cant seem to put your finger on it because:

A) You’re not getting tight hairstyles done or putting so much tension on your edges.

B) You oil/moisturize your edges accordingly.

Well, it may just be the last thing you’d suspect, which is;

C). You’re wearing bonnets with the elastic band around it:

The elastic ends around your bonnet could very well be the culprit for your thinning edges. GASP! I know, but think about it, while you’re doing a good job wearing a satin/silk bonnet, your edges are suffering due to the tension that’s caused from the elastic part of the bonnet rubbing against it. I used to wear the purple bonnet (pictured above) but for some reason I could never find it (maybe it was my edges subliminally making me misplace it?) Funny thing is, I found it just in time to take a pic for this post & I promise you I have no idea where it is now hahahah! I’m not kidding!

Viable alternatives to your demon-edges-snatching-bonnet:

1.Satin scarf like this:

I wear this animal print scarf to sleep when I’m feeling sexy hahahahahh

You can buy/find this literally anywhere in life; WeBuyBlack Beauty Supply Store, Amazon, first check your mom’s Closet! Come to think of it, I don’t think I’ve ever in my whole life purchased a scarf, specially the ones I wear wrap my hair to sleep in. They just sort of appear in my closet (most likely from my Scarf Ferry aka my mom or sisters hahah) Interesting… an epiphany within an epiphany!

2. Skatsz Satin Lined Beanie:

 

 

Since each beanie has satin lining on the inside I tend to use it as a bonnet too; they’re pretty stretchy, so I throw it on my head & its nighty night for me! Bonus: I get to wear them outside without looking dumb like I would if I was wearing a bonnet. You can purchase these satin lined beanies & other colors at www.skatsz.com 

 

 Have you ever had this bonnet issue? Let me know if you have other alternatives. Comment below xx

Protective Style Gone Wrong – Too much Crochet?

Hey Guys!

So I wanted to share with you my experience with one of the more popular “protective styles”- Crochet aka Crochet Braids. I discovered crochet a while back, through a friend actually. I remember when she was trying to get me to understand just what crochet styling was & I was completely lost haha. But fast forward to last year, there I was, completely in love with the concept of C R O C H E T ! ( I spaced out the words for dramatic effect hahah) If you’re not familiar with just what crochet styling is, Click this link —-> Crochet 101  for better & in depth explanation.  

Now before crochet, I always preferred to have all sorts of braids & twists in my hair but we all know how just how long that whole process takes. I would also get weaves here & there, maybe like 5/6x my whole life so you know I was about that braid life. So once I understood just how much crochet eases the whole process & just how versatile it was?!?! Chillllleeeee I was hooked! So naturally my lazy behind decided to do crochet back to back…BAD IDEA!

Now I did the curly sue style & the faux locs; Both styles below.

When the crochet was being installed (very blurry, sorry)
Curls Crochet 2
Finished Product (Bathroom pic, judge me not)
Fau Locs Crochet
Crochet -Faux locs (I really enjoyed this style)

I kept each style in for about 4 weeks which I think is pretty standard for keeping in protective styles. However, I noticed that whenever I took out both styles I had ALOT of single strand knots! Below pictures aren’t mine, but they were the closest depiction to what my hair looked like once I took out the crochet.

I had endless single strand knots!! So much so that I had to cut out so much of my hair because it was impossible to detangle, it was HORRIBLE 😦

Needless to say (I’m going back to Cali, Cali, Cali I’m going back to Cali… hmm, hahaa) Nah but I am going back to to my regular braids & twists! It just sucks because I really did enjoy crochet styles 😦 I have to wonder though, what caused all those knots? Because when I take my braids & even weave out, I don’t ever get single strand knots.. like at all. 

So have you ever experienced crazy single strand knots from crochet styles? Or even any other protective styles? Please share below.

Thank You, Obama!

Happy Friday Guys!!!

Today marks the start of a new administration in the United States of America & that means the man that has been our president for the past 8 years: Barack Obama is now exiting. That means he’s taking our elegant, beautiful, and sophisticated First Lady Michelle with him. *tears*  It’s been a bittersweet day (well mostly bitter because he’s leaving) but more sweet because we even got a chance to have him for almost 10 years. And for that, I & millions of people around the world are beyond grateful.

I can’t really articulate exactly how I am feeling, but here is a great tribute to sum it all up

We miss you & love you Obama!

 

What has Obama meant to you?

New Product Review!

Hellluuurrrrrrrr Guys!!!

I’ve been gone for a while & I promise I had every intention on blogging but so much has transpired in such a short amount of time (yes a month to me is like a day). I honestly hadn’t realize how long its been since my last blog post till I got an email asking if I had abandoned my blog hahahaha! At that very moment I had to look at my life & get it together, so here I am!

I’m super excited to show you guys this new review of our satin lined beanie! The review is done by one of my personal fave YouTube vloggers Mona B. Her channel has been a go-to of mine for a while now for many different reasons, so I was beyond ecstatic when she agreed to do an honest review of our Skatsz beanie.  Check it out below

I’ve also attached her (Mona B) social media accounts below. She has several videos about makeup, natural hair styles & plenty more on her channel & her social media account. You’re welcome 🙂
