Summer Summer Summer Time!

This summer has bin going pretty good for Anna and I. I try my best to get out the house at least twice a week. It's gonna be cold soon and I don't want to be sitting in the house saying " I coulda"

Yesterday we went to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden with a couple of my friends.
By the way, Anna-Leah is 7 1/2 months already!! Time waits on no one

Hair Update




Dear friends, I am now sporting a sleek bob and I love  it! This is the hair change I was craving for the past couple months. Now I can relax...for now.


I did the bob myself at first, using this technique. (watch video)

It failed. Instead of using a woogie (pony pail holder) I used a rubber band and cut right through it, causing my hair to be uneven. My hair stylist aunt whipped it into shape quick fast. Yes, I'm lucky.




(Lipstick: NickaK 'Sable')



I am also now apart of the... permed hair committee?? Well, yeah, I'm no longer natural. WHAT?! I know. Its juts hair right? right?





Interested? Check out my hair update video below.


Oh also these are the products I use after I deep condition. My hair regimen otherwise, its  the same as before.

Dear Natural Hair,





I'm breaking up with you... maybe.
Quite frankly I've bin over my natural hair for a while now. The twist out, braid out and that dreaded bantu have become daunting taskS for me.

During my loose natural hair journey, ( was never a journey per say but whatever...) I have to say my hair was the healthiest in 2013.


 Boy oh boy was I obsessed with my hair back then, but it was a lot of work. The constant deep conditioning, moisturizing and re-twisting. Wow, I had patience! I can't see myself going back to that right now. Kudos to the new moms with fly twist-outs.


Two big chops and heat damage later, I'm here at "ugh". So whats next? Back to locs? Another big chop? Perm maybe?? I have nothing against perm. I got caught up in the natural hair movement since my locs were a big hit among the YouTube community. But it was not my identity. I was just a woman with her hair loc'd at that point in her life. I feel like just a few understood that.


 I'm not sure what is next for me and this hair. We just have to wait and see.
Bye bye natural hair community???

Blessings
