Hair Crush

Lately,I have been putting a lot of effort into caring for my natural hair.I have found a hair care regiment that works for me and i am going to stick to it. My regiment consists of detangling with Cantu conditioner & water (see method here).After detangling, i wash my hair with Cantu Shampoo and thereafter, deep condition. To deep condition my hair ,i use Shea butter, Avocado & coconut milk (blended together by moi).I apply it to my hair the way you would a relaxer.I let it sit in my hair with a plastic cap over it. After an hour i wash it off with just water. My hair loves this treatment, it makes it really soft and leaves it feeling very moisturized.I towel dry it and use Cantu hair moisturizer, Cantu strengthening cream and shea butter(to seal in the moisture)and then i style as desired.

Per styling, I prefer to have it in curls and I usually achieve this by doing two strand twists or bantu knots .The curls usually last 3-4 days.

Bantu knots give my hair more volume.

Results after very loose two strand twists

I am really hoping for healthy & long hair and maybe if I keep up with this regiment, I can have gorgeous hair like these ladies.

(btw, I am not in anyway endorsing Cantu hair products, they just work really well for me)

Have a great weekend ladies!See ya on Monday.

SMH...cut everything off in summer 2010 and now I am really trying to grow a fro :D, I have been using Doogrow products for a while and it works great. I just started using Dr-Miracle temple n nape for my front hair, nothing dramatic yet. fingers crossed.

  18. Yes girl, keep up the hair care regimen, and you won't be disappointed in your results! Cantu Shea Butter doesn't work well with my hair :(( but I do like the smell of it! I just started a new product I'm loving, but I won't reveal or recommend until I've tried it a few times haha.


  19. And this right here, makes me want to go natural. I'm just so scared of all the work it'll take to manage my already very thick hair.

  20. Hey! Long time! You're natural? That's great - there seem to be a lot of people going natural these days. I'm thinking of trying natural again (curly permed my hair two years ago after being natural for about two years) but I'm going to transition for a long time!!

    Your hair looks great so please do the occasional hair post :)

  21. Hi Vickii, yes i have been natural for 2 years but i was always hiding it in weaves.

  22. Nice post! BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL <3

Things to do in Havana, Cuba

HELLO EVERYONE! Yes, I am screaming at the top of my lungs, as I haven't been in this space this year. First things first, how are you all coping with the pandemic? I hope you and your family are safe. It is a tough time for everyone, and I am hoping this passes away sooner than later.
Now on to today's post. Guys, last August I made it to my dream city, Havana! Cuba was a country that had rated high on my travel list for ages, but due to travel restrictions imposed on U.S. residents, I thought a visit there was impossible. This cannot be further from the truth, and I will explain the travel process in another blog post. 
My time in Cuba was spent in 4 different cities, and I will be starting my Cuba travel series with Havana.Enjoy
1. Ride in a classic car --this is a must do The classic car rides are a fun way to see the city. We opted for a 2 hour ride, and we got to see China Town, Havana Vedado, Revolutionary Square, and John Lennon Park.

2. Visit Plaza de la Revolución Revoluti…

Confetti Fun

Hey chica, it's that time of the year again--my yearly birthday photoshoot! Whoop whoop!
In 2016, I did the Rose, Tulle, and Leather shoot, while 2015 was Colors and Balloons. The 2017 shoot was themed Ethreally mint, and last year was Wintery Black. This year I had an elaborate theme in mind, but due to time constraints, I wasn't able to pull it off. I ended up settling for something really simple and fun. And what's more fun than playing in colorful confetti.
Enjoy the photos.

That's all folks! What do you think of this year's birthday shoot?

Living Colorfully in Old Town Alexandria

Hey guys, happy humpday! Just two more days, and the weekend is here--whoop! Speaking about weekends, this past Saturday was a fun one! My cousin was visiting from Lagos, so we decided to take a train ride to Old Town, Alexandria in Virginia. 
The day started with brunch, and ended with super fun vibrant colors we encountered all around Old Town Alexandria. I usually do not publish videos here, but we also took many cool videos and I couldn't resist not posting it here.
Enjoy... I have been to this restaurant several times, so once I got in, I found my way to this wall that I love so muc In addition to American dishes, Warehouse offers Cajun & Creole dishes. I love NOLA style food, so of course I had gumbo and beignets--it was yum! Now unto the streets Color makes me happy I have several photos in front of this vibrant Torpedo Art Factory wall Random More Randoms
