Happy Texture Tuesday MSquad ❤️. Now that the cat is out of the bag, I want to answer any questions y’all have about my new hair color 🧚🏿♀️. Ask me anything down below ⤵️.
➢ As for the process, it was quite simple 🙏🏿. I used the colors “C30 Hot Burgundy” and “C31 Vivid Red” by @cremeofnature 😊. Swipe ➡️ to see. I’d like to note I did mix both of the dyes with conditioner, to lighten them.
➢ I split my hair off into 8 sections (4 on each side). For each section, I applied the dye in a pattern. Meaning, in the first section in the back, I used C30, the next section I used C31 and etc. The reason I used two colors is because I figured it would give me the illusion of more dimension and shape to my hair.
➢ I processed the color under my hooded dryer for about 35 minutes, because I have low porosity hair, and I wanted the color to “take” on my hair.
➢ After processing my hair, I followed up by shampooing and then deep conditioning for an hour. After this, I proceeded to style my hair in a wash and go.
➢ Overall, I love this color on me. Makes me look so vibrant 🥰. I am definitely not a professional, as I did miss a couple of spots 🙃, but I can always touch my hair up in a couple of weeks!
One of my Black Friday purchases was a couple lip glosses from @thelipbar! I never wear lipstick because I hate how drying it can be, but I love how a great color on the lip can elevate your look. So when I found out @thelipbar had really pigmented lip glosses I knew I had to try them. I have Class Act on my lips and I have a feeling this will be a fall/winter favorite! 💋
Not the conventional birthday picture, but really emulates how I feel about turning 26. Thank you to every single person who wished me happy birthday! I really had the best time especially @alphagunslondon
🗣️🗣️New Protective Style Alert .. yes, I'm screaming🌚
So I did Twists again🙃 but made them smaller this time.
Protective Styles are a go-to for hair growth..!
To start with, YOUR HAIR IS GROWING but you don't get to see the growth because your hair keeps breaking. So to see that growth, you'll need to invest in "length retention practices" and "Protective Styling" is one of them.
*Why Should Protective Styles (especially the ones made without extensions) be Your go-to for Hair Length Retention??*
👑 You don't get to manipulate your hair daily as in styling, combing etc.. because over-manipulation can hinder growth
👑 Your ends are tucked away and moisturizing them is actually easier when in a PS. (Remember that your ends are the oldest part of your hair and could easily break off, so they need all the moisture they can get and they need to be tucked away in order to protect them from harsh weather conditions and from your cotton shirts too🌝)
👑Making a PS using your hair only allows easy access to your hair. You can still have a full Washday with it compared to if you had extensions in your hair.
So my kinkycurly fam, you can still add extensions to your hair but don't stop yourself from switching it up once in a while😉
My Twists is a DIY as usual.. I'll try recording the next one.. I did this late at night...
I hope this post was helpful 💓

Would you use Eco friendly products on your hair ❓🤔 I tried @earthsciencenat Olive & Avocado Shampoo and Masque.
Olive & Avocado Shampoo- Contains silk protein, argan oil and Shea butter. It left my hair soft and clean but not stripped.
Olive & Avocado Hair Masque-
Contains silk protein too. This made my hair easy to detangle. My hair felt soft to the touch and moisturized. 💜Thank you so much to @earthsciencenat for collaborating with me. Check out their eco friendly products. 💜

Just to clear up any confusion...I’m not goin anywhere lol. 👇🏾👇🏾👇🏾
I’m at the point in my influencer/hair journey where I’m not so focused on pumping out back to back content. You guys will probably get to see me rock my styles longer periods of time, and I be able to give more realistic/in depth updates on how my hair holds up throughout the week.
You guys will be able to catch me going live more often as well. I originally made the mistake of over doing it with the content, instead of truly showing y’all who I am. This causes a lot of confusion when you guys see me in my natural element, and not being all silly in a video.
I will also start posting more in depth captions, and brining you guys more valuable insight because I see other people doing it, and they are so engaging lol.
Two of the influencers that have inspired these changes are : @naturally_madisen
I may suck at commenting, but I be hella watching. I need to work on that.😂
Happy Saturday MSquad 💚. What did y’all have for breakfast 🥞🍳today 👀. LMK ⤵️.
Anyways, throw 🔙 to when I did my perm rod set, for my birthday! I made sure I stretched the life of this style, because I love the voluminous curls 😻. I’m thinking of doing another rod set again 🤔.
Do you struggle with detangling your #Naturalhair ?
Well let me tell you! Life is too short to dread the detangling process as it can be very soothing 💆🏾♀️
If you currently struggle with detangling it could be one of three things:
1- You probably need a trim/haircut to remove your dead ends and single strand knots. They are the oldest part of your hair and are more prone to tangles. Which will definitely make your detangling process longer and more painful than it should be.
2- You are not using a good enough conditioner or Deep conditioner that is suitable for your hair. Personally I judge a conditioner first by its ingredients then the amount of slip (viscosity) that I get. I have a video listing all of my favs on my YouTube channel (Link in BIO)
3- Your are not patient. Be gentle with your hair and take your time. Personally I make 2 or 4 sections however you might need to do more section if your hair is more dense than mine. Tackle one section at a time and start from the bottom to work your way up!
Try these tips on your next wash day and report back 😏.
Its Fridayyyy 😎
So I wanted to bring you all my final bomb #Twistout results using these products from @onieorganics 😃
My hair felt so moisturized and as you can see is super defined , which I love. The Hydrating Mist is beyond moisturizing & Perfect Leave-In is creamy and smells so good . These 2 make the perfect combo for any twist/braid/twaid out style.
Definitely head to www.OnieOrganics.com and shop their products for yourself , I definitely recommend 😃
