I know it’s been a while, like a whole year. I’ve been experiencing life after Howard and the whole adulting world. However, I plan to be back in full effect. New hair, new outfits and new topics.
Now that I’m 24. I want to start something that has always been on my heart. I’ve always been obsessed with hair and everything that comes with it. I want to own my own thing and make something magical out of it. I want to be classic like Fenty Beauty and leave a legacy for my kids like Jay and Bey. So here it is or the start of it anyway…..
Heir Extensions. Virgin Brazilian and Malaysian bundles and wigs for sell. I’d like to add more pieces so tell me what you guys think. Buy and try some pieces if the spirit moves you. Let me know things you’d like to see and send in some reviews so I know how to perfect the brand.
Thanks for listening! I hope you share and click and buy and all that good stuff. I’ll be back in a few days with an update from my closet. 💋
I recently had my old hair sewn in again by a very talented Baltimore stylist. The hair was from my frontal install last summer featured in Stylist Alert! and dyed black featured in From Brown to Black.
I believe the texture is Brazillian deep wave or beach wave or something of that nature. To keep my curls looking fresh every day I have two go to routines.
One routine is simple bantu knots. About five small ones at the top to blend my leave out and the twelve inch bundles. Then the bottom is sectioned off into either three or four large bantu knots.
Another routine is the same five small bantu knots and then four or five braids at the bottom.
The last routine is just five or six braids, braided from the leave out down.
In the morning, I simply unravel. I spray a little water on the individual braid or bantu knot add some Miss Jessie’s Soft Curl and let it dry.
And this is the end result!
Spring has arrived, and with it those lovely sun rays. It’s never easy when the heat comes around. Your hair can poof up with the humidity. It can curl up due to sweat, or it can simply dry up cause it’s too hot to hold the moisture in. Here are a few hacks to keep your hair in tact.
Bantu Knot Up Do
Bantu Knots are a quick and easy way to style your hair and they usually last for a good length of time. This protective style also works well with short or long hair and any type of cut. I have a short cut right now and the picture above shows me wearing the style. There’s no extra hair added. It’s all me. You simply brush up the back, hold it with whichever hold you use, and bantu knot the front.
Braids are the perfect way to beat the heat. Plus, there are a million different types of braids. My niece has the two long side cornrows. This has recently become a trendy style being worn by the Kardashians and renamed “boxer braids” 😂 but this post isn’t about appropriation. Don’t get me wrong I don’t have a problem with them wearing braids. I actually think they look really cute on them. I take issue with the fact that it wasn’t “cute” until the another culture started doing it. Anyway, there’s more than one opinion on the matter like there’s more than one type of braid.
Here’s my very lovely Ms. Tatum making braids and twists look absolutely fabulous.
Weaves and wigs are a perfect hack for summertime hair. You get a few good bundles and you’re all set. Sew-In methods like the Vixen Sew-In are perfect because they allow for versatility. Lace Front wigs have also made a fabulous comeback. Watch a couple tutorials on YouTube and you’ll see. The lace front game has definitely changed.
Whatever style of method you choose to use I pray that the humidity doesn’t kill you and that your edges remain forever in place and laid to the gods.
