Low Manipulation Styling on Natural Hair

I am not a big fan of long protective styling even though I should be. I just feel like after a week of wearing them, I want to touch my hair again. Lol!

However, I do low manipulation styling on my natural hair instead. This is where you style your hair so that it can last for a few days and your ends - the weakest part of your hair- is tucked away. By doing low manipulation styles you can retain more length because your hair isn't out all the time. So, there will be less detangling and less manipulation done on the hair and your ends are protected.

My styles of choice are Flat Twist updos and Buns.

Flat Twists on Natural Hair

Flat Twist are great as protective styles because your ends are safely tucked away and you can easily get up to 5 days wear out of this style. At night I spritz with a little leave-in or water, tie with a satin scarf and go to bed. Wake up and just just go. Easy! This style is actually perfect for those of you girls who are transitioning and still have relaxed ends. If you don't know how to flat twist there is always YouTube. 

Below is a simple but cute Flat Twist Tutorial:

High Buns on Natural Hair

Buns are my other favorite low manipulation style. Its so easy. Just do a regular puff then twist medium size pieces and pin the ends down with bobby pins. And your DONE! So easy but yet so elegant all while your ends are protected. At night spritz your with a leave-in or water then wrap scarf around the bun to lay the hair down then put a satin bonnet on. Wake up and GO!

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs Hi Loves, I always get asked about how do I interlock my locs and the rotation I used - whether its 2-point or 4-point rotation. Some people also use the term 2-way or 4-way rotation. In the video below, I illustrate on my own locs, the difference between the two methods. you can then compare for yourself, if there is a difference between the two by looking at my locs. Do you interlock your locs? Share below which rotation do you use?

Lupita Nyong'o Attacked by Dencia (Maker of Whitenicious Bleaching Cream)

Lupita Nyong’o, the gracious black beauty was an honoree at the Essence Women Luncheon a few days ago. In her speech, revealed her struggles being a black girl to womanhood and how images of the supermodel Alek Wek made her see beauty in herself as they both shared the same 'midnight' complexion. She then pulled out a letter a fan wrote to her thanking her for appearing on the scene just in time before she ordered Decia's Whitencious bleaching cream.  “Dear Lupita,” it reads, “I think you’re really lucky to be this Black but yet this successful in Hollywood overnight. I was just about to buy Dencia’s Whitenicious cream to lighten my skin when you appeared on the world map and saved me.” Who or what is Decia's Whitencious Cream you might ask? Dencia is the Cameroonian-Nigerian singer 'was' of dark complexion but been using bleaching cream to lighten her skin to a 'very pale' complexion. Now I urge you to look up FOOL in the dictionary and her pale
