Last month I had the pleasure of hanging out with talented Maria of The Maria Antoinette! Maria and I first “met” when she and LaQuisha of Corner Curl Girl over 3 years ago when they had a 30-day natural hair challenge. That’s the first of 2 challenges I’ve actually completed in the last few years by the way…LOL! I’ve had the chance to witness Maria’s business and following grow tremendously over the years and so happy to be able to call her a friend. Not only is she the bomb with hair and makeup, she is genuinely a nice person as well. Nothing worse than someone being pretty on the outside with a heart of stone!

Shrinkage is the debil and it didn’t help that my last 2 cuts totally jacked up the length on top. -_- I showed Maria a picture on instagram and we just knew we had to recreate that look. I’ve never had a sew-in before so this was all new territory for me. [Read more…]
One of the first things I discovered when I went natural was just how bad using shampoo was for my coils. It’s not that shampooing your hair is the worst thing but those that contain sulfates are what strip your hair of the oils that it actually needs to help keep it healthy.

I usually just cowash my hair with regular conditioner so I was pretty excited to try out this conditioner. I recently got a sew-in and it was suggested by my friend Maria to just use conditioner to cleanse the hair. Here’s how I was looking before: [Read more…]
