Quick Natural Hair Style (Twist Pin-Up Hair Style)

Hey Guys! 

Are you sometimes in a rush to get out the house but have only 10 mins to do your hair? Do you want a quick hairstyle but feel like doing something other than a  regular puff. Well, loves, I got a quick up-do for you.

For really quick up-dos I opt for twist pin-up styles. I put big twist in my hair and grab some bobby pins and pin my hair into a nice up-do. 

Below is a video showing how I achieve this look. Enjoy!

How long have you been natural? Wow.  Hmmm... I've been natural since about 2003.  So that's... what, 10 years?

Did you Big Chop or did you Transition to natural hair and When? BOTH!!!  I big-chopped in 1999, but then I started using a texturizer thingy in my hair for about 2 years, I think.  Then I realized that that was thinning out my hair so I stopped using any chemicals and started doing 2-strand twists for a while.  Then I started locking in January 2004.


What made you decide to go natural? Ever since I was a little girl, my hair has always been alte…

Natural Herbal Treatment For Hair Removal

Herbal Treatment For Hair Removal All of us want to get rid of unwanted hair growth all over our body. How many times, have you not been able to wear your favorite skirt or sleeve less dress thanks to your unwanted body hair? We all would agree unanimously that sporting unwanted hair looks quite uncouth and ugly. Agreed, that the propensity of hair growth differs from one person to another, however no one person can ever declare that they are blessed without any unwanted hair. Some part of their body or the other would be covered with unwanted hair growth that they would be dying to get rid of.
Many people might also complain of excessive unwanted hair growth on their face and body, this might be caused mainly due to hormonal imbalances, stress, and side effect of medications or might be genetics. Naturally, this might be extremely traumatic for all the young girls and they would want to opt for some natural herbal treatments for hair removal.
Though there are many ways and means for ha…

Did you Big Chop or did you transition to natural hair and When?
I transitioned for 6 months with braids and weave then I chopped the relaxed ends off to rock my TWA.


What made you decide to go natural?
When I became an adult and I was able to think for myself I started to see that there was something wrong with what I was doing to my hair (myself). I couldn't find an acceptable reason for me relaxing my hair. I often asked myself “what’s wrong with my hair the way it grows from my scalp?”, “why do I need to do this?” I also felt proud of my black and thought straightening my hair to be a huge contradiction. Addit…

The Best Natural Hair Care Store Is Your Kitchen

Hey Sistas! I hope you've been showing your tresses some love!

So, as the heading of this post states, 'the best natural hair care store is indeed your own kitchen'. Going natural should really be the cheapest way to go. It's really not that necessary to go out and spend loads of money on natural hair products,. Unfortunately, we all want to try out what's new on the market, and so we slowly become product junkies. However, at the end of the day, most of our hair needs can be solved by products in your own kitchen.

Let’s look into this:


So you have product build up? Is dandruff taking over your life? You wash and condition your hair, but your scalp never seems to be totally clean? The kitchen solves these woes. Apple Cider vinegar should be in everyone's kitchen cupboards. It's great to cook with, can supplement for salt for high blood pressure sufferers and help with weight loss. However, it also solves the problems listed above. If you mix Apple Cedar Vinega…

Growing Natural Hair

Growing Natural Hair
If I could collect a dollar every time that I get a question on how to grow natural hair; I would be a very rich girl. I hear women all the time frustrated because they don't think that their hair is growing even though they believe they have used every product in the world. So, I decide to make an entire post about it. 

So, how can we grow our natural hair? Easy! It’s already growing. Our hair grows from our scalp regardless of race or hair type - unless we have some medical condition that is preventing hair growth. What we need to focus on is Retaining the hair that is grown from our scalp. While no one thing can miraculously grow our hair, there are steps we can take to speed up the process or assist us in retaining length. 


Below are a few tips that I recommend for growth retention:
The Number One tip is feed your hair from the inside out. Drinking lots of water helps to detoxify our body and of course our scalp reaps some of the benefits. In the past year, I …
