Longer, Better, Faster, STRONGER!

When I BC'd in March of this year, my hair was less than 2 inches long all over. Since then, my hair has been growing and has become uber healthy! I credit this to the Lord above, the hints, tips and inspiration I receive from natural hair cites/blogs (,,, - those are my faves) and tons of trial and error on my own. I've come a long way baby....I'm learning more all the time and hope to share more hair tips as I get braver and start to experiment with different styles. Here are a few pics of my new staple style. When my hair was shorter, I would just cover it with a scarf at night and go to sleep. Now if I do that, I wake up with flattened portions and an all around mess....not cute! So I've been braiding my hair at night and sealing the ends with Iyoba Hair and Body Butter. I met the owner and purchased this product straight from her and it is a God send! It's made from African shea butter, mango butter, cocoa butter, olive oil, coconut oil and essential fragrant favorite scent is the fresia lemongrass....mmmmmm:)
But I digress, I seal the ends with the Iyoba butter after I braid my hair at night. I don't cornrow it, I do individual braids, anywhere from 8 to 12 of them. I almost forgot, before brainding, I mist my hair very lightly with plain water in a spray bottle (misting, not saturating). In the morning, I take the braids down and voila! Enjoy the pics.

Love and light.....
