Past hair routine 

18 Jan

My hair routine has been basically the same for the past 3 years. My hair was growing pretty nicely. It was hitting my mid back😁. This past year I’ve been struggling and hit some set backs 😢😤.

For past couple of years my routine was pretty much

Every 2 weeks

  • Oil treatment/prepoo(coconut and castor oil
  • Shampoo – only applying shampoo to my scalp
  • Condition
  • Apply coconut oil and blow dry
  • Then braid or twist into 2 braids/flat twist

Every 4 months

  • Relax and trim

Every once in awhile I would flatiron

I’m sure pregnancy hormones helped quite a bit.

The past year I have been going into my broker’s office regularly for meetings and working. I always had to have my hair done, meaning putting stress on my hair more than usual and that’s when I started to notice the breakage. I was losing my length and health.

I’m trying to go back to my old ways and maybe even washing my hair every week. One week cowash, next week shampoo and condition. But I probably won’t be applying heat every week.

Wash Day 3 weeks Post

21 Dec

I washed and relaxed my hair 3 weeks ago. Now, usually I wash every 4 weeks but im trying to work my way up to every 2…baby steps.

I started by prepooing with coconut oil for about an hour and half. Shampooed with motions keratain and than with a mix of motions and herbal essences hello hydration conditioner.

I applied my coconut lime conditioner for about 30mins. Conditioned with herbal essences for 8mins and than motions moisture plus conditioner for 15mins.

Applied coconut oil to hair. Blow dried on high and flatironed on 310 the lowest my flatiron gets.

My hair came out so soft and fluffy

Best Braid Out!!!

17 Oct


I was so happy with my results with this braidout that I had to post. It was done on relaxed hair too!

I washed and conditioned my hair. Oiled my hair and scalp.

Sectioned my hair into braided ponytails and secured the ends with rubberbands.



Then wrapped them around my head with bobby pins.


I left my hair like this overnight and most of the day.

Took them down, lightly combed it out and fluffed.


Came out better then on my transitioning hair.

Relaxed Hair

27 Sep

Hey! I’m back! I have been starting to feel so much better. This pregnancy has been taking me through it (morning sickness) just like the last one but thats another post soon to come.

So I did relax my hair back in July after one year and 4 months without one. I have to say I love it! I feel like myself again.

   This is 2 months post blown dry


                Then flat ironed


I washed with motions shampoo

Then apply my oil mix (mostly coconut oil, grapeseed oil, castor oil and tea tree oil ). On top of that I apply motions moisture condition, put on a plastic cap and left on for about 2 hours (I fell asleep).

Washed it out. Applied coconut and grapeseed oil for heat protectant.

Blowed dried my hair and flat ironed.

That is it! Simple and easy! Just how I like it.

Wash Weekend

29 Apr


I started my weekend Friday night with a overnight prepoo with oils coconut, grapeseed and castor oil.
In the morning I washed it with my mixture of a little bit of shampoo and mostly coconut lime conditioner. Then I applied my yogurt protein mask. 30 mins later I rinsed it out and sprayed in the coconut lime conditioner, left on for an hour. Applied oil mixture of coconut, grapeseed, and castor oil as well as sauve keratin leave in. Twisted my hair into 8 sections to air dry. The next morning. I used my hair dryer to get the kinks from the twists out. Then flat ironed.

Happy Hair : )

Pinned Do

21 Apr


I wore this cute style to a friends engagement party. I was bored with my hair and it started to frizz in the front. I went searching for some ideas. I came across Babilion Kay Protective Pinned Do on youtube. She has this protective style with 2 ponytails and pinning the hair. I use to wear my hair similiar back in college but I would bun it. This one is cuter and easy as well.

I did do a couple things different. I curled my hair with satin rollers. The back is the same except I did not pin a curl in the middle. The top ponytail was not working right for me. So I swept the front to the side. Pinned my hair down and pinned the curls like the ponytail in the back.

Note: Her hair is way longer than mine. I have medium length hair and it worked out just as great!!!!!

Have fun and make it your own!

Fluffly Curls

26 Mar


Over the past 2-3 days I played around with curling my hair. I have not curled my hair since going natural (1 year and a month ago).

Sunday I used the knock off of curlformers with wrapping foam. Set under my dryer for 30 mins and left them in overnight.




This is after I separated the curls

I do like how the curls turned out but they were not what I was going for. I wanted my hair to move and be fluffy.

Later that day I tried the curling iron on one side…better but too tight of a curl in the front.

Today I tried my flatiron over most of my head (a small section in the back I used the curling iron). Love it!  Next time I will use the curling iron in the back and flatiron on the sides and in the front.


Happy Hair : )

I know, this blog is mainly for natural girls or guys (I don’t judge) who like to and keep their hair straight most of the time. But this is what I have for now sorry. I straighten my hair more than I should of in the past month (didn’t take any good pics) and my hair needed to be washed. Next time I promise. Here’s what I do to achive my braidouts.

Wash and condition

Section hair into 6 sections

Lightly oil scalp and hair with mostly coconut oil, 3 drops of grapeseed oil and 1 drop of castor oil to each section

Apply leave-in suave keratin condition to each section

Put each section in a ponytail, braid and secure ends with a ponytail holder or rubberband.

Leave in ponytails until hair is completely dry or mostly dry.

Take sections out and blow dry on cool with comb attachment one at a time.


Now for any given day and you just want a braidout and texture.


Section hair in 5 sections

Lightly mist section of hair with water. 1 or 2 sprays not too close to hair.

Add product I use coconut oil mix and leave-in. Or when i flat iron my hair i use flaxseed gel.

Braid. Secure with rubberband or hair tie.

Wrap with satin scarf and leave in overnight or longer

When ready to take out; rub some oil in hands, rub hands down braids and carefully slip off rubberbands or hair ties.

Take out braids fluff and style.

I use braidouts mainly as a protective style. If i need to go somewhere and don’t want to take them out, I throw on a hat or slouchy beenie.
