Breast Cancer Awareness!!

It has been a very long time since I have posted. Meaning I did not finish my 365 days of hair. There is a very god reason. I did a Big Chop for Breast Cancer. Ok so that is not the main reason, but it is the reason that I have begun blogging again. Last year my sister (who is 18 months older than me) battled Breast Cancer. Our family took a huge blow and went into action! My sister who is also an occasional natural hair diva underwent chemotherapy and radiation that ended in August. The ladies in my family decided to cut our hair. It was very liberating especially because I had become so consumed with products and styles that having hair was never on my mind. I love my hair short and am now growing it back at the request of my sister. We are all in this together :-) Here are a few pictures from the last year.

Always Kinky 365: Day 40 Mini- Twist


Here is a micro twist set I did on the munchkin. Her hair is getting so long. Luckily she is used to me hair wrestling so she doesn't put up a fight anymore :-)

Always Kinky 365: Day 39

Roller Set:
  1. Co-wash with Giovanni TTTT Conditioner. 
  2. Moisturize and protect with Coconut Oil.
  3. Using med (back of head) and large (top of head) magnetic rollers
  4. Apply small amounts of Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding to the ends before rolling hair.
  5. Let the hair dry overnight (not very comfortable to sleep in but I don't want to apply heat) or sit under a dryer.
  6. Finger comb to your liking (I prefer a "fluffier" look)
Here are the results:

Miss Jessie's Stretch Silkening Creme

So I finally broke down and ordered this product to give it a try. For my full review check out my video. To get the look I ended up with I used the following instructions.

Wash and condition hair.
Apply Miss Jessie's Stretch Silkening Creme while wet.
Shingle the product through the hair and let it dry.
Spray mist on the hair after it has dried curly.
Bantu knot the hair in 6 pieces.
Let the hair dry
Finger fluff and go! Here are the results....

Always Kinky 365: Day 37

She is getting so much better at sitting still while I work the magic. I tried this style again the next week and it was a better outcome. If ths keeps up we will graduate to cornrows. These are flat twists and box twists in the back.


Always Kinky 365: Day 36

This was the first day that I tried Ecco Styler Gel. I will be doing a video about the wash n go. But in this picture I just put a little bit on my edges to see how it worked and my hair did not budge for 2 days! I had to wash it out and try again to make sure it wasnt something else. I love the stuff!
