Melanin HairCare First Impressions


So, my girl, Whitney " Naptural85 " White (okay, we're only friends in my head), FINALLY hit us with the launch of the Melanin HairCare product line that she and her sister worked to develop for 6 years!  Y'all, I don't even like pre-ordering books on Amazon, much less new products created by a new brand...MONTHS in advance, but girl, I pre-ordered without a second thought.  Somehow, I felt I had to be a part of this movement...at least that's what it feels like to me, and by the way,  #supportasista (shout out to Toni Daley; thanks, sis for starting THAT movement♥).  If not for the years of good and decency of Naptural85's brand, I would have more than likely shown up to this party a year later.  LOL

Anywho, I was eager to try the Twist-Elongating Style Cream, share my first impressions, AND host a non-sponsored Melanin HairCare GIVEAWAY.  Check it out, below, and join in (there's still time):  


I hope you joined the Giveaway.  Good Luck!

Thank you for reading and watching!

4 - Minute Natural Hairstyle for Busy or "Lazy" Naturals


Natural hair can be super easy, fun and fierce, with little effort or maintenance.  Have fun playing with your hair to see what unique, and simple natural hairstyles you come up with!  You'll even notice that you get the most compliments on the styles that you created by mistake; more proof that natural hair is versatile, and can be super easy to style.

In this video, I demonstrate just that with this 4-minute, jazzy hairstyle that I quaffed with a couple twists and an infinity head wrap -- no styling tools needed!:


I love the infinity head wraps, because  you put them on in one step, and they come in an array of colors, and patterns to match any outfit or mood.  To amp up the style, I'll sometimes layer 2 or 3!  As you see, you can even wear this easy natural hairstyle for special occasions, spring, and summer; just remove the wrap, and add elegant, sparkly accessories, or pretty flowers!

Kinky Kurl Out Habesha Bob - Finger Comber



Simply put, FingerComber units are Kinky Kurly, Kinky Coily natural hair wigs "made by naturals, for naturals".  Several years ago, when FingerComber.com first hit the natural hair scene, I purchased their original FingerComber unit, and to this day, it's still going strong!  

You know I love's me a good CovaGirl™, so I decided it was time to add another one of their protective styles to my collection.  This time, I chose the Kinky Kurl Out (HB) Habesha Bob unit.  The angular bob design is inspired by the bobbed cuts of the Habesha naturals in Etheopia, Somalia, and Eritrea.  There are  a few sweet and sassy style options one can achieve with this CovaGirl™!

Watch this video review for my first impressions:
