Color Treated

Hey Queens! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

I do not remember if I had mentioned it before but it has been in the back of my mind that 2017 would be a year of trying new things with my natural hair. This first thing I did to my hair that I have never done before was to professionally flat iron and cut my hair. Guess what I did next? I colored my hair. I can say 2017 has been one risky year so far.

Kinky Curly Coily Queen โ‡” Parris

Hey Queens! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

It has been what? Two months or more? I am trying my best to keep up. Between school and my part-time job all I want to do is sleep, sleep and more sleep. Happy New Year guys! ๐ŸŽ†๐ŸŽ‡โœจ๐ŸŽŠ I hope the new year started out well for you all. In my last post, I didn’t great y’all well. ๐Ÿ˜˜ What have I been up to? Well, I have been trying to be a good nursing student, as well as, trying to ensure my monetary needs are met. When I am not doing that, I am formulating a business plan I want to initiate soon. I’ve been good and my mind has been on the blog heavily because it gives me peace and I enjoy doing it. Not to deter from the reason I am actually here but to bring to you a beautiful young lady that followed me on Instagram a few months back. Throughout those months I have liked her transition process. At the end of her transition process, I loved how full and bouncy her hair was. Therefore, I DMed her on Instagram and asked if she’d like to be featured on my blog. I think even though I may not have the time to document my natural hair’s progress I can at least bring inspiration from other natural haired girls. My ladies and gents (if you’re reading), meet Parris (such a beautiful name ๐Ÿ˜Š).

Flat Ironed and Cut ๐Ÿ’‡๐Ÿฝ

Hey Queens! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

I currently got my natural hair straightened, that was February 18, 2017 because my weeks are quite hectic to be dealing with a thick head of hair each morning. Be mindful I am one whom is very much afraid of heat and have always tried to dodge ever doing that to my hair. You may wonder why I changed my mind and went ahead to do so. It is because I heard of the first blow-dry bar in Jamaica. Yes, Blow by Blow. It is owned by the Chynn sisters – Tami, Tessanne and Terrie. I always stated that if I was going to get my hair flat ironed, I would rather a professional do that. Blow by Blow came just in time.

Hey Queens! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

I’m so sorry I’ve been distant. I’ve been really busy. School and work is more hectic than I thought it would be. *sigh* I miss blogging but I’ll try to work harder to make more posts through my busy schedules. I have a strategy in mind and I hope it works. Now, onto the post at hand.

I stay trying new deep conditioners. Especially because I need to find one that it’s great at moisturizing my hair but also great on my pocket. The previous deep conditioner I reviewed was a bit too much for my pocket, that’s the ORSโ„ข Shealiciousโ„ข Moisture Lock.

Product Review | Aunt Jackie’sโ„ข Curls & Coils Don’t Shrink Flaxseed Elongating Curling Gel

Hey Queens! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

If you know me then you know I love a great gel. I’ve been an eco styler girl since the discovering of this gel but then I heard of the great flaxseed gel. I never thought I’d find Aunt Jackie’s Curls & Coils flaxseed gel here in Jamaica but you know your girl just had to get herself one of these to try.

This product is sulfate and paraben-free. It contains no mineral oil or petrolatum.

It is great for natural curls, coils and waves.

It is enriched with flaxseed and wheat protein. Flaxseed, rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, promotes hair health from the inside out, and helps to prevent dryness & flaking. Aunt Jackie’s special Flaxseed recipe adds nourishment to hair, while giving bounce and stretch to withering curls, twists, and coils.

Egg

Hey Queens! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

Egg is used worldwide as a beauty product and a hair product. We use it a lot in our DIYs and I have started to use it in my weekly face routine.

Eggs are laid by female animals of many different species, including birds, reptiles, amphibians, mammals and fish, and have been eaten by humans for thousands of years. The most popular choice for egg consumption are chicken eggs.ย Egg yolks and whole eggs store significant amounts of protein and choline,ย and are widely used in cookery. Due to their protein content. [SOURCE]

First Time Installing Box Braids

Hey Queens! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

So I installed box braids for the first time. This was my first time doing a protective style that includes covering my entire hair. I must say it was a long process – I hate it. I hate to sit and have someone in my hair for too long. It made me look more mature – I now looked like a 21 year old than a 16 year old.

I did this because I recently cut the damaged ends off, therefore I was unable to do my mini twists without them loosing out due to the fact that my ends were blunt.
