Hey everyone! So I went to a wedding this weekend, and I wanted to do something cute with my hair, but I didn’t want to wear it out in this heat! I saw this style while cruising through the Black Girl with Long Hair forums, and thought I’d try! It was actually very easy to do, and lasted for a couple days.
Hey everyone! Memorial Day weekend is here! I hope you all get a 3-day weekend, I’ll probably head to school on Monday. smh! Anyway, to console myself, I put together a list of natural hair sales I can take advantage of this weekend! These companies have discounts just for Memorial day, so get ready for some retail therapy!
Hello everyone! This weekend was busy, busy, busy! Everything went so well at National Natural Hair Meetup Day – Nashville! First of all, I’d like to say planning events is no small feat! Planning a national event like NNHMD is a feat that requires a great team! I was a member of the national planning committee this year, and you can take it from me that lots of hard work and dedication went into making this event a success on the national level!
This was my first time putting together an event, but LAWD, I learned so much! I think it went very well, and I had so much fun mingling with everyone who came out! Thanks to our wonderful sponsors, everyone had a chance to win awesome prizes, and many of the ladies went home with bags filled with goodies! Island Breeze Cafe provided great food, and a wonderful environment for the ladies to mix and mingle with each other.

Hello everyone! So I tried something new this weekend. I wanted to see what my hair would look like in a dry twist-out because I’m thinking of wearing my hair like that for National Natural Hair Meetup Day. So I used some Bee Mine Deja’s Hair Milk to flat twist my stretched (aka ‘dirty’) hair. I took the twists down in the morning and this was the result!
It worked pretty well! The Deja’s Hair Milk really worked well to moisturize my hair. The result was soft, fluffy hair with plenty of volume! I was pleasantly surprised! The hair milk smelled great AND it’s all natural! One day I’m going to see how it does on wet hair soon.
