Mohawk #naturalhair

So i was just playing with my hair trying to figure out something to do different with my hair and I came up with this cute Mohawk



Wash and go: smooth in products or rake in? #naturalhair

I tried something different when I added product to my hair instead of raking it through I just smooth my leave in and then I applied my gel the same way….my hair turned out better and my curls clumped better…how do you apply your products in? And do anyone else try the smoothing method or the raking in….

I’m a Product Junkie


How much is to much? lol but I guess it goes with the territory right?

Some say you should stick with the product that you find that works for your hair. But with me I’m always surfing the stores for more products that works for my hair and so far I’ve found a lot of them that each product that I’ve that I like works for my hair…some of my products I have give me more volume which I love big hair….but I’m not always wanting big hair so I go to my army of products thlt I have under my sink and choose what I’m feeling sort of speak….my thing is I don’t think you should or HAVE to stick to one product. But there is a such thing as overboard lol

My Fair Isle and combat boot obsessions

I have a obsession with fair Isle pattern (I love these leggings)… and combat boots. I have 3 pairs of different combat boots. And not to Mention how many  pairs of riding boots I have that’s another story lol but combat boots was one of pairs of boots I wore all winter long…I think I might incorporate it in my spring and summer wardrobe as well.
Btw And my hair is straight again I’m switching back and forth between curly and straight lol

Top 5 Oils To Use


Sometimes like me were wondering how and what certain oils do for our hair. We’ll I decided to do a top 5 oils for you guys.
My favorite is coconut oil….

it’s light in my hair rather than the other oils that I’m about to list…but I still use them but I use them when I’m using a hair mask or just add them to my deep conditioner to put a little umph in my conditioner….
First is….
Avacodo Oil- Avacodo Oil contains vitamin A, and a variety of micro elements and fights dryness in your hair.
Castor Oil- Prevents dandruff, and adds shine and softness to your hair and it also repairs damaged hair.
Jojoba Oil- Moisturizes and adds shine
Olive Oil- Helps with split ends and hair loss
Flax Oil- Cures dry damaged and dyed hair, restores hair, restores hair structures.
