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

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.

Twist N’ Curl ft. Shea Moisture

Hey Queens! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

I know you guys are used to me doing the Twist n’ Curl method (here and here) where I twist the hair then roll 3-5 twists onto a perm rod but this time I did the other method. I realize that the initial method I usually use takes a longer time to dry.

In addition to that, I used the wonderful Shea Moisture Coconut and Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie and Curling Gel Soufflรจ to achieve this style.

Finger Coils

Hey Queens! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

I’ve had many failed attempts at finger coiling my hair, for what reason? I don’t know. But I must say I’ve done 90% of my hair in finger coils and they came out perfectly. The front of my hair just doesn’t seem to keep the coils and I will not fight it anymore but keep what it gives me.

Factual or Mythical Series: Protective Styles Make Your Hair Grow

This has been a myth in the natural hair community for quite awhile. Now when we speak of protective styles we’re speaking of a style that protect the ends of our hair. Protective styles include twists, braids, wigs, extensions, weaves, etc. When we protect our ends we avoid the chance of it breaking off. Ends not being broken off = more length.

Women will often do back to back protective styles to encourage hair growth but are not aware of the downfalls of doing this. I myself have been a victim of the back-to-back protective styling trying to grow long hair. Protective styles helps us to retain length – not grow our hair.
