June 2016- 14 Inches August 2016
September- 17 Inches
My usual hair growth is 0.5 inches per month. But using HKH’s healthy hair vitamins I was able to almost a whole inch a month 0.75 inches to be exact. Instead of growing only 2 inches a summer, I grew THREE!
Mystic Divine Coconut Complex Hydrating Masque is key for coils! As soon as you put it on your hair you can feel it slaying your curls with moisture. Depending on your hair’s level of dryness you can leave the mask on for 5-15 minutes.
EDEN-Coconut Shea Leave-In Conditioner is that last step of moisture. It just keeps the curls elongated a little longer and prevents more shrinkage than normal. (Which I badly need because I’m the shrinkage queen!)
Wash-N-Go’s always make me insecure but I feel fierce with this method! Get the look at Sally Beauty ! Thank you for checking out my style guide. If you decide to try this method, please comment below with your experience!
I love the heat of summer time but avoid a heat stroke I have to keep my hair out of the way!
If your 4-type hair is like mine, it can be nearly impossible to slick down your hair without it looking plain greasy. Here’s some quick tips on how I achieve the perfect edges and ponytails!
Start with freshly washed hair. – A fresh wash helps the hair lay down. If your hair is pliable then you’ll need less product.
Use your favorite moisturizer. – To protect my hair in ponytails I use Jamaican Castor Oil. The style might be used for days so I make sure this style doesn’t lead to breakage.
Grab Your Pomade or Gel – Stop everything you’re doing and pick up Murry’s Edge Wax! It lays 4-type hair. It provides a hold that isn’t hard and my edges don’t look greasy & fizzy after one hour.
Create The Ponytail – Pick a spot on your head and make a ponytail. By creating two loose braids my thick hair goes into a ponytail more easily.
Tie Your Hair Down With a Leg of a Stocking – Silk scarfs aren’t going to cut it. Grab some old stockings, cut a leg of it off and tie it around your head = LAID.
Wrap ponytail with Hair Extensions (optional)- For the perfect Phony Pony I used Haute Kinky Hair – Haute Curls. I wrapped the hair extensions around my ponytail without taking out my braids. I also wrapped the hair extensions around the base of my ponytail to hide the tracks.

Most people don’t know that the sun can badly damage your hair extensions! The powerful rays can dry out your weave. If you’re going to be in direct sunlight for a prolonged period of time, wear something on your head to cover your hair.
I have been wearing Dachè Hair for a few weeks. Russian course curly hair, that’s giving me life! Long story short: It’s quality hair and I LOVE IT! The people over at Dachè made a lace wig unit for me and it’s been so convenient.
It was a medium tight curl and it brought all the boys to the yard! It’s seen in the 10 Weave Commandments video.
The reason I say it’s high quality is because it met the following criteria: it didn’t shed, it didn’t tangle and it didn’t mat!
I went to the beach and had many days at the pool in my Dachè wig unit, and it still looks fabulous!
I opted for the Fire & Ice Facial. Baby, let me tell you, CPS exceeded all of my expectations! The Fire & Ice Facial is a medical grade facial, just a step below a chemical peel.This facial is great for anyone who battles acne or other skin ailments. My aesthetician , Marily Salls was amazing!’First they start off with the fire mask, which resurfaces your face by removing old, dry skin. It has a warming, tingling sensation and smelled like cookies to me! Next they apply the soothing ice mask. This mask uses hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, green tree extract, and peppermint to hydrate the skin and calm it down.At the end of my session I saw instant results! My complexion has been evened and brightened!I highly recommend this facial. The procedure goes for $150.00 and is well worth the money.Since this treatment I have been following up with CPS’s recommended skincare regimen products and boy do I feel beautiful! I use a retinol eye cream, a super serum, cooling serum and a great SPF!
I felt a boost of confidence after this facial. As a beauty blogger you’re always faced with wearing a beat face. But now days I think my bare skin looks JUST fine!
I had the honor of being a panelist at the 2016 Philadelphia Natural Hair Show! The topic was Black Women & The Perception of Beauty within Media! Boy, was it a lively discussion! Colorism, texture discrimination, weaves vs natural hair were some of the topics that got the naturalista’s charged up!
The discussion was the inspiration for my video 5 Clap Backs for Weave Haters. I wanted to push the message that no one is less natural for wearing weave, which was a misconception during the panel.
After the panel I dived right into the festivities! The Philadelphia Hair Show was packed with vendors selling African print clothing, black owned hair care products and natural textured hair companies. I was in heaven!
