I truly enjoyed my time with this beautiful lady during her curly cut/transformation. She hadn’t had a haircut in 6 years beside trimming the ends herself because she was so devastated by her last cut. I felt honored that she chose me and trusted me enough to bring her AMAZING CURLs back to life!!! The universe always has a way of putting the right people in your life just at the right time!!
Shout-out to my hair that looks good, but I’m about to go to bed (bc i i hustle hard & work two jobs!)

#RealTalk does anyone remember how obsessed people were with straight hair?! Like, obsessed. My hair wasn’t always curly (that’s a story for another day!). It used to be generally straight with a slight, very slight wave. I legit used to straighten it at least twice a day. Sometimes more. When I went to get a haircut I made them straighten my hair so intensely straight. It was crazy! I once had a friend straighten my hair with an iron. An Iron! Why was I so obsessed? Why were we so obsessed? It wasn’t just about feeling my best, it was more. It was needing to look a certain way to feel my best. Which is not okay. Ever. I’m trying to be more accepting of my self, how I look, and conscientious of how I want to look. ...
It took awhile from me getting curly hair & to me loving it. I didn’t straighten it ALL the time, but I did when I went to the salon, which I did for special events so that my hair was straight 🙈 A few months ago I left the salon with curly hair and it was incredibly liberating! My curls looked so good. It changed my way of relating to my hair and in a way, relating to myself. I looked in the mirror tonight & was genuinely seeing my beauty & the beauty of my curls. It was something to be celebrated & so I share with you, with hopes that you can love whatever you previously didn’t about yourself. 💜 #bedhead#curlygirl#curlyhair#curlyhair#curlyhairdontcare#devacut#devacurl#whydoesmyhairlookgoodbeforebed#hustler#selflove#acceptance#effyourbeautystandards#bodyacceptance#tiuteam#tiudmv#tiudc
You all probably know I’ve been on a mission the last several weeks (months?) to find ways to simplify my hair routine. Think: A more streamlined approach. Consistency. No more rotating conditioners, layering multiple styling products—maybe even finding a few product lines that just work so harmoniously unto themselves that you really don’t need to look anywhere else. Hear that? It’s my sigh of relief. *Link to this video is in my bio.* ✌️✌️✌️
What are the ways you’ve found you can most successfully simplify your hair routine without sacrificing too much in quality? I need your tips and ideas!
There always seems to be some sort of miscommunication when it comes to curly hair. Curly hair definitely takes more work and more products to make it look like it’s suppose to. Make no mistake I did not wake up like this 🙈. I have naturally curly/wavy hair but in order to bring out my curls I need to use a plethora of products. To achieve this look I used a leave in conditioner by @designmehair , extra body sculpting gel and super skinny serum by @paulmitchellus , the spray gel by @devacurl , and @paulmitchellus flexible style hair sculpting lotion, AND last but not least I used the body shop coconut oil hair shine to tame the frizzies. Then I pretty much bent upside down for 30 minutes to diffuse my hair and give it as much volume as I can. Believe me, if I could wake up like this I would save myself so much time 😂.

Trying to figure out the protective styles for the summer time coming up soon. (5 days!!!) i tried to braid then do a two strand twist but that’s not how the braiding process works. I think I have to do a three strand twist. But I show my best look twist. I’m not gonna wear a twist out tomorrow, but I’ll show you the results anyways. I used the @cantubeauty leave-in conditioning repair creme, and the @auntjackiescurlsandcoils flaxseed elongating curling gel.
✨Lessons my Protective Styles Taught Me Series Part 3:
✨Braids used to be my go to, however I would ALWAYS leave them in for too long and compared to how I care for my hair now, I was only doing the bare minimum to clean it in between washes 🤦🏽♀️Can y’all believe I didn’t deep condition for 18 years lawdddd. I would eventually go back to some form of braids but I would only maintain the style for about 2 weeks. And tbh I think I would want to do them myself. I want to be completely self-sufficient when it comes to my hair.
