Hola Chica’s and O’s!

I hope that all is well with you. I have many things going on but I also have much that I want to share with you, so it’s time for me to get going with it. From the feedback I’ve gotten, I’ll definitely continue the “Good News Monday Quote for the Week” and the “Heroine Entrepreneur “series. We’ll continue to get informative posts from Carolyn Akens (such a sweetie and joy to know). I’ll also continue my “Tuesdays Are for Tresses” post. Speaking of which….

I’ve stopped doing my buns for now because my edges are suffering. So I’ve begun incorporating protein treatments to strengthen my hair, and gone back to wearing twist-outs. BOR-RING! *Yawns* I’ve even tried a braid-out and while I liked it, I also felt it to be too similar to twists-outs for me to want to continue much with them. Soooooo, I’ve decided to embark upon roller-sets and straight looks just to shake it up a bit. I’m so bored with it. I really want to color my hair but I believe I’ve read that it won’t take well on top of henna. And I’ve hennaed my hair a plenty of times. Guess I’ll check a little further into that. One thing I do see is me doing another BC (big chop) in my future. I’m trying to hold on another year or two so we shall see. I’ll definitely keep you all posted on all of the above. But keep in mind that my current camera is a defiant one. So until I get my Nikon 5000, I’ll do my best to give you photos from my crackberry. Lol.

Now of course, I’ll be investing in a couple of other hair tools to achieve my roller set and straight looks. I’ve done my research and have decided to purchase a stand-alone hair dryer for my roller sets and a Sedu flat iron (my splurge item) within the next few weeks or so. A Pibbs Hair Dryer is my dream deferred but I’ve read similarly great things about the one that I plan on purchasing.

Well, that's pretty much what's been going on with me, as far as my hair is concerned.
What about yours?....


  1. Your hair is beautiful there!!!, the big chop idea sounds great...you know there are a lot of naturals doing the bc again. Great to read from you, keep us posted on your hair. Take care.


  2. Hi Lady,

    Your hair looks great. Wow, rebirth of the BC! Have you tired Curlformers. Probably best in cooler less humid weather. How about the wet look? I have braid/twist out envy of full naturals. I'm a 7 going on 8 month "transitioner". I am considering the "BC", but not ready 4 the TWA yet. I'm really bored w/the straight ends. I'm thinking about 2-strand twist or weave. I have not straighten or cut any end yet. Think I'll do that. Keep us posted, take care!
    Keeping it curly ~:-)

  3. @Zainab1 - Hey Lady! Thanks for coming thru. =)

    @Sheron - Hey Lady! No, I haven't tried Curlformers. Mainly because it looks slightly difficult to operate. Lol. And I'm not a big fan of the wet look. 2-strand twists sounds great! Would love to know what you decide to do.

    {{Hugs}} to all!

  4. Bunning can be the worst on those edges. That's one reason I stopped doing it. Good luck on your straight styling adventures!

  5. @Kcurly - Yes, I've had to learn the hard way. I was little disappointed because it can yield really great growth results but I'll just have to be overall gentle when it comes to handling my hair and its ends.

  6. Your hair is so beautiful!!! I am so jealous lol :) Very nice blog you have too!
