One of the joys of being a hair blogger is that if you’re doing your job right, you get the amazing opportunity to impact the lives of others.

All / Relaxed Hair

  I’ve been absolutely terrible this last month, too much heat, not enough protective styling. I think it’s safe to say I’ve totally disqualified myself from the Love Your Tresses Protective Styling Challenge…sorry Fiona!

All / Relaxed Hair

I’m currently 19 weeks post relaxer. Let me break that down for you, that’s almost five months since I last relaxed all of my hair; or 133 days since I dallied with the creamy crack; and even more mind blowing, 3192 hours since I had the pleasure of straight hair without the use of heat. Well that’s all due to change soon. I was trying...
