What’s Really Been Going On?

It’s been a while since I’ve posted and I’m going to be completely honest on why. I ran out of ideas to do with my head. Honest to goodness truth. I sat around and noticed all the bloggers were writing about the same thing , and I didn’t want to do that. I also felt like I let so many of you down when I decided to BC for the second time. ( yeah not what I planned on doing ). Everything happens for a reason , and with the move back home I felt like it was a new journey , so I cut all my hair off. It’s just hair right ? It’ll grow back. 😐

Well here in Indiana it’s taking longer to grow because of this weather. It’s growing faster than most would expect , but I know the rate would had been quicker if I had the Georgia sun and heat. I haven’t been doing my hair regimens like usual either , I just had lost the “umph “. 

Will I regain my focus ? Of course! Actually last week it came back when I noticed that the blog page on Facebook had been growing like crazy. I couldn’t believe it. People were referring to my older blog posts and looking for updates , and here I was M.I.A.  That woke me up. Why punish my readers because I was being a donkey. Lmao. Yes donkey. 

With that being said I will begin writing and posting again. Plus I’m happy to announce that I have began being a fitness advocate for Saba For Life. Make sure you following me on my fitness journey, and I will be open to questions on how u can live a healthier life. 

Thanks for all the support. FabCurlies Take 2! 💋

YouTube 

Wow! That’s all I can say. I never would had believed I would end up with 100 YouTube subbies. I never even post like that, for some reason I never could get a good feel for the camera, but I will not just leave you guys hanging. What am I gonna do ? Guess I’ll start filming , and today is the perfect day since I’m coloring my hair! I’m so excited! I haven’t been this excited about a color job since I did then Manic Panic purple over two years ago. This should be a fun experience filming the purchasing of the color and some of the process. Before I go , thank you to all of you who have supported me from the beginning, and who has recently started. Love you much!

Right Complexion, Wrong Hair Texture

I can’t reiterate enough on how wrong my title for this article is, and it saddens me that in the natural hair community naturals find this to be true. On many boards I have seen where a dark skinned tone curly has type 3 hair , and some comments would state ” that’s not your hair , it’s a weave” or ” I thought dark skinned curlies all has type 4 hair “. What in the world!!? At first I laughed when I first noticed it because I thought they were joking with her due to a relationship they might have. Nooo. I started seeing this all over everywhere. Some actually thought that the lighter the naturalista was , the looser her curl pattern would be. Sad isn’t it?
I hate to break it down for the ones who thought this , but your hair texture has nothing to do with the complexion of your skin. It has everything to do with your genetics and how you take care of the health of your body from the inside out. Bingo! That’s it! You want some nice shiny , poppin curls? Moisturize your hair daily, make sure you seal your ends, and eat healthy which includes increasing your water intake.
I don’t want to go too far into this because this will take me off subject.
I’ll say this one last time for the naturals that were honestly confused
your hair texture is not based off your skin complexion.
I hope this reaches someone and give them a better understanding. If you have any questions or want to add comments please do below.

Fabolous Curlie’s Fierce Curly Feature -Rhonda

Hello Curlies! I’m sharing another beauty with you all that I find amazing, She isn’t afraid to try new hair colors on her natural hair, and rocks any color with style with pure fierceness. Here’s Rhonda’s hair story!

 

How long have you been natural, what made you decide to stop chemically processing your hair?

I been natural for about 5 years give or take a few months. I decided to go natural after my Physician suggested it, because I had migraines on a regular basis.

Do you follow a regular hair regimen?

I am a product junkie, but for the most part I actually do follow the same routine just different products from time to time.

What is their favorite hairstyle to wear?

Wash and Go when my hair is short and manageable. When I get some length on it I usually wear twists, then twistouts, bantu knots, or braidouts.

What is your favorite thing about your natural curls?

The fact that I can go out in the rain and not care about the curls falling or my hair getting wet, too frizzy. I just go where I want to go without stressing.

What is the one pain in the butt when it comes to being natural? 

Combing it out and keeping it moisturized

What are your top three favorite products?

Did you chop or transition? 

I did both at different times. The first time I went natural I transitioned then I permed. The second time I cut it off and had a TWA. I have let it grow out and chopped it about four times since I been natural. I chopped if off about a month ago making it #4!!

What advice would you give someone that wanted to try being natural, but don’t know how to start?

Read as much as you can. Join some Natural hair forums on facebook and read blogs. Get educated then pick what’s best for you, big chop or transition. Don’t get discouraged and have a support group to cheer you on.

LOC LOVE FEATURING “ROB”

Hello everyone!
As promised I am bringing you another loc head feature! I want to thank Rob so so much for letting me feature him. He’s a wonderful guy, and have the most beautiful locs. Let’s get into his interview!

How long have you had locs?

I have had them for almost 6 years now.

What made you decide to grow locs?
I used to have my hair braided before I move to another state I could not justify the cost of getting braided and refused to cut it off so I decided to get locs.

Do you have a hair regimen?

My loc is very easy to maintain it. I get my loc retwist once a month and wash my hair twice a month but it really depend on how much oil n dandruff build up.

How long did it take for you to find out which products were best for your locs?
It took me awhile to figure it out finding out which product work best for me and I try to keep it natural as I can.

Do you see yourself ever cutting your locs out?
Oh God Forbid No!!! Couldn’t imagine going back to being cut.

What do you like most about having locs?
I love the fact that my locs develop or build character that matches with my personality and can come up with different styles as well.

What’s your best advice to someone who wants to get the length that you have?
Keep it clean and maintain it properly. I found out that new growth grow faster during the locking process which is why it very important to get it retwist because if you don’t it will matted up quickly.

Thank You For Sharing Your Journey With Us

Love,

Free
