It's A Twist-Out Affair

Practice Makes Perfect
If you've followed me my entire journey, then you know I don't do much to my hair but wash n go's or protective styles. I've never attempted a twist out, braid out, bantu-knot out or anything of that nature. Last week I was feeling really, hmm, curious about this whole ....out thing so I decided to dive in and try it for myself. I had no idea what I was doing. I just did what I thought was right. I wasn't watching any videos of tutorials or anything like that nor was I trying to be a perfectionist at it the first go around. I used my normal moisturizing method after I did my weekly deep conditioning treatment.
I was amazed at how my hair looked afterwards. I was in my zone. Did these twists (that took forever), covered my hair, and hit the sac. I woke up the next morning like "Do I really want to take down my hair?!" I didn't have the time but decided, you know what I'm going to do this. I've made up my mind I want to see the end result! I started to take my hair down bit by bit and it started coming together. The end result I thought was nice. No, the definition isn't sick. Why, you ask?! Well, my hair still is pretty darn short. I'm not really into the definition. I'm more focused on moisturizing. I found that my hair was super moisturized for about a week without me having to put any product in my hair. I didn't even have to re-twist at night. Just wake up the next morning, sprits it with whatever spray I'd like, fluff, and go go go. I was amazed! Now, I know y'all are asking, did you record it? I want a tutorial on how you did it. Yes, I did actually. Is it up yet? No, I need to get around to putting that up but if you stay tuned and patient I'll have it up for you soon enough! :) I'll try this whole Twist-Out method again sometime again in the near future. That is, when my hands don't hurt from having to twist and twist and twist. I hope yall enjoy and be sure to check me out on YouTube. Make sure you subscribe if you haven't. Thanks for reading! Smooches! <3

Better than Good Hair - by Nikki Walton

When I first began my natural hair journey I had no idea how competitive it was within the community. It was almost like people were fighting for no apparent reason. I, myself, decided to go natural for a number of reasons. I'm not sure about you though. I didn't "jump" on the bandwagon of natural hair. I wasn't like the die-hard natural hair person that was just all about natural hair natural hair NATURAL HAIR. I let my hair do its' thing and be what it wanted to be. I've been natural 3 yrs now, although close to 2 yrs ago I did a 2nd big chop (watch the live footage). When I first went natural it was trial and error. I started googling like crazy, researching as much as possible about how to manage my hair. I mean, let's be honest, who knows right off the bat how to take care of their "natural hair texture" if you weren't already natural to begin with?!

I ran across Curly Nikki's website and started reading. Between her website/blog and Naturally Curly's website I began learning more and more about natural hair. Although, I didn't find anyone who had my hair texture or what products to use on my texture I decided to blog/vlog about it. Now, I'm not sure how many of my natural hair diva's know of the newest book on the market. Natural hair blogger Nikki Walton, aka Curly Nikki in the natural hair community, has officially released her book Better Than Good Hair. She has featured a hand-full of natural hair guru's whom, I'm sure, you follow. One of which is my fav. Chary Jay - 160Days2Lose2 on YouTube! This book has been labeled as the go-to bible for natural hair. If you don't know about her you are sleeping! You can check out her website here.

Her book sales for about $ and shipping varies on your location of delivery. I, myself, copped a book when it first released. I couldn't wait to read it. I'm not a big reader, but this book here MERCYYYYY I could read it over and over. She's very very well-known in the natural hair community and let's be real, she knows about some hair! Besides Chary Jay, she's one of my natural hair idols. I adore her and everything she brings to the table. I hope you run to Amazon and grab a copy of the book to read for yourself. You won't be sorry, Promise! Smooches y'all <3
