About Me

reside in Salisbury-born in Brooklyn, NY, United States
I'm a young smart woman..a loving mom! I love to cook and read all the time. Dancing makes me happy and yes I CAN dance! I love being me and that's the only way to be!


NATURAL has definitely won my heart!!

Sooo I vow starting today to just get the heck on with it! I dread perms, I dread the same hair style over and over again! I hate the fact that my hair is bone straight! I like body. Sooo with that said..I am embarking on the natural journey. A journey that will lead me to learning my hair, loving my hair. To appreciate who I am inside and out...no matter what society says. I want to be me all around and for some reason I want to start here...with my HAIR! I'm nervous and excited because I do know this will be no easy journey. I've heard so many stories about transitioning hair...especially when half your hair is the permed and the other half of its natural..lord help me! lol

It's been approximately 8-10 weeks since I have had my hair chemically treated...and to tell you the truth..my hair feels great!! Last week i had a girlfriend of mines cornrow my hair after being in the pool and did a braid-out to get the crinkly affect and it was great..everyone loved it and people thought I had that wet & wavy weave in..I guess I can thank my thick hair that holds curls very well.
And because I loved it soo much..I kept them in from Saturday till Wednesday.

So then I decided to try something else because I was beginning to look like Diana Ross on a bad hair day (OUCH!) so i googled different hair styles for Transitioning Hair and came across two-stranded twists and bantou knots. I really wanted to try the two-stranded twists but with my cranky daughter...that just wasnt happening. So after I got her down, I washed and deep conditioned my hair and put a little leave in conditioner in it and then towel dried my hair and I did the bantou knots. WHEEEWW!! YouTubers make it look sooo easy...NOT!!! I struggled with them to twist properly or stay in place. Lucky for me..I did enough research to know not to use much product on my hair. So after about 1.5 hrs i had my first attempt at the knots..spritzed with water (read that somewhere) and tied it in the satin scarf i had ought that day. I just realized I am going to have to bury my favorite red scarf..Oh NO!! Anyway, I took them out this morning and undid them...Not too bad for my first time. I just finger combed them and pushed the front up in a clip and I had a head full of loose curls. Oh how I love NATURAL looking curls!!

Well I will post pics later..blogging at work; so posting pics is time consuming...but hope you will follow me on this journey!
