The Almost Infinity Twist

Hello loves!!

I’ve got some major catching up to do on blog posts but I just wanted to show you all my hair of the day.

I straightened my hair earlier this week so that I could trim my ends and so I’ve been playing with some styles . Today I went with this…

It reminds me a lot of an infinity braid or twist which I love but this is nothing more than two flat twists. I separated my hair into two fairly equal sections. For the front section I flat twisted all if the hair to the left side. And for the back I did the same thing. Lastly I tucked the end of the front flat twist inside the flat twist in the back, and I tucked the end of the back flat twist inside the front one. Here are some more pics!

P.S. I get my iPhone 6 Plus next week so videos coming soon!

Versatile Styles From This Week

Good Morning Beauties!!

I was crazy busy with work but I wanted to catch you all up on my versatile stiles from this week. I have to say I really was into switching it up every day. That’s one of the awesome things about natural hair, the ability for it to be so versatile creates even more opportunity for different styles!

Ok…let’s walk through the week

Monday I did a super high twistout pony, pulled all the hair to the front and swooped it to the side.

On Wednesday I had a taste for straight hair so I flat ironed a high pony and went with this sleek look.

Flat Ironed Natural Hair – A Look Back

I was going through some old pics and could’t help but feel extremely proud of my natural hair journey.  For the past 3 1/2 years I have embraced my natural hair texture and it has truly paid off.  My hair is more healthy than it has ever been and the growth has been incredible!  

Here’s a look back over the past 3 years at the various times during my journey that I’ve flat ironed my hair to see my growth progression.

Straight Hair Problems

It’s been less than a week since I had my hair professionally highlighted and pressed but it’s official…I miss my curls!!

Typically straight hair is fun for me for about a week, then I tend to get bored. I’ve been trying to get a little creative with my straight hair but my stylist did such an incredible job on my press that my hair is too silky and straight to hold a style!

I started Tuesday with a nice side flat twist but by lunch it just refused to stay!

This whole plan of keeping my hair straight for two weeks is starting to go down hill. I’ll keep you guys posted! In the mean time here’s a look at my straight hair this week. Rolling with a simple low pony today.

Highlighted and Pressed!!

I finally did it! Last night I got my hair professionally highlighted and pressed!! The first time I’ve let anyone in my hair in 3 years! Needless to say I was extremely nervous. I entrusted my tresses to a young lady by the name of Toya Rucker and let me just say, she did an extraordinary job!

She started with a shampoo followed by a slight blowout and some time under the dryer. Next she applied a product by Redkin called Chromatic using the foil highlight method. It’s actually a clear formula that lifted the natural color of my hair 3 shades lighter. It was very cool!

Afterwards she washed and deep conditioned my hair. Following that she applied a color called Golden Apricot by Redkin to all of my hair and I spent about 20 minutes under the dryer. She washed and then it was on to to the blowout and press!

Before she started she applied a product called It’s a 10 Silk Express Miracle Silk Leave-in. You guys I have never felt my natural hair so straight and light! I was in awe! After the initial amazement came the unfortunate part…the trim. My hair needed a trim fairly bad and although she was delicate I pretty much threw my growth challenge out the window. On the upside my hair is healthier!

So…all in all I am over the moon with the results! Here are some pics of the details.
