Time To Say Goodbye……Ends

Hello! Hello! Hello! 

Today is an exciting day for me because I been waiting to clip my ends for about two weeks. I know you guys are like ” why you had to wait ?”. I cut my hair by phases of the moon. Yes indeedy! 

I know a lot of people think that’s an old wives tale, but it’s true. ( well in my experience ). My mother always did it when I was a kid ,and then when I started going to the hairdresser I let them cut it whenever they thought it needed to be done. I would ask my mother why my hair wasn’t as full and long like it use to be. She said ” one , you have someone else’s hands in your head that might not having growing hands , two-you’re not cutting your hair by moon phases “.  I laughed because I didn’t believe her. 

Then when I started my natural hair journey four years ago I said let me go back to how my mother did my hair. I started cutting by the moon and my hair which already grew fast , grew like weed! It was growing so long , thick and beautiful. I big chopped a second time a year ago , I didn’t follow that same regimen because I was just lazy. Well my hair grew but not at the speed like it did my first year being natural. 

When 2016 hit I said I was going to start taking care of my hair again. I haven’t clipped my ends but once in 2015 smh. I see the damaged ends that’s preventing my twist outs form being the best that they can be. I grabbed my iPhone and redownloaded my moon phases app. I had to see when was the next growing moon for hair , that’s when I had to clip my ends . Yesterday was the first day the moon hit New Moon in Capricorn and then today it’s the Waxing Moon in Capricorn until 2:23pm. If you cut your hair today it will grow faster , thinner and smoother . Fine hair will become strong , but will grow faster because of the Waxing Moon . 

Now you better go grab those scissors and do a quick snip snip all over ! As soon as I finish writing this post for you guys I’m heading to my vanity to start!  lol! 

Of course I’ll keep you posted. Stay beautiful !

30 Day Deep Conditioning Challenge 

Hi! Do I have something to share with you all today! This morning I got an email from Strawberry Curls blog stating that she was doing her 30 day deep conditioning challenge again. Man , was I excited. I told you all that this year I was coming back strong on my hair game. I read through all the rules , and was like ” ok , this is what I do anyway “. 

Simply pick one day out the week that you will deep condition, and just do it. Yup ! That’s it. Basically you’re promising your curls to a spa day once a week , lol. Ain’t that cute ? A spa day 😂

She even recommended some deep conditioners you could use or if you already have one you like , you could use that. Since I had an awesome $10 off coupon from Sally’s for my birthday , and needed to pick up some other things I decided to get a deep conditioner. 

I’ve been wanting to try this brand for a while , so I was happy to see that they had this big jar for $7.00! 

  

Next , she did say it would be awesome to get a length shirt. I always said I was going to buy one , because I didn’t like how my diy turned out last year. I will be getting one from a shop I seen on Instagram , but I’m starting the challenge tonight. 

Here’s my hair now  

 
In 30 days or maybe half way through I’ll post more pics so we can see if we can tell a difference. 

If you would like to take part in this challenge come right on! Message me for complete info or go look her up. I’ll keep you all posted.

Two Strand Twist Hell?

I’m always hearing people say they can’t get the perfect two strand twist out. That or they don’t like how their twist look enough to wear them outside. Then the first thing they do is start asking other naturals which products are they using for their bomb.com twist. Honey,it ain’t the product,its your technique. I don’t think no one has ever stated the proper way. Today I’m going to tell ya,and hopefully this is where you were going wrong. Here’s a picture that I found of perfect twist off the internet.

Do you see how each twist is uniform? Bet you shaking your head,because you’ve spent hours trying to get yours like that. It’s OK,it’s OK. First thing is make sure you detangled each section of hair very well. Any kinks will lump up the twist. Be sure to use the same amount of hair for each twist,being lazy sure don’t help. Product that will hold the twist is also a must,don’t forget to seal. Lastly, the most important part,you ready!!?? This will make a world of a difference with your twist and twistouts. TWIST EACH SECTION OF HAIR FROM RIGHT TO LEFT!! Boom! There it is!
I know in the beginning I was guilty of twisting any old kind of way till I noticed that my kids twist always looked better than mine. Go try this out and let me know if it helped.
