The last time I wrote was at the beginning of this year to say how I have been away for so long and now five (5) months later I’m doing the same. I’m honestly not doing this on purpose. Ever since I lost my dad, my life has made a big 360° turn. Finding out I was pregnant while attending nursing school to taking on a part-time job but I must say things are working out for the better because I have great news. 😊
It’s been so long since I’ve made any content. I just realized my last post was January 16, 2018. How bad of me! 😔 There’s a good explanation for that though. I’m now a first time mom and I’m still learning to balance being a mom, school and work.
But….. before I go any furtherHappy New Year guys! I hope 2018 was a wonderful year and I wish great things for this year, 2019.
To display how busy I have been last year, I was contacted in September about a blog post creator of Reviews.com wanted me to share on my blog and I have not gotten around to do it last year until now. What better time to post it, as a few days from today I will be straightening my hair and getting a trim to start off the year right with my natural hair. Without further a due here’s the blog post from Reviews.com:
I know it’s been like forever but a lot is going on which you’ll soon find out about. 😀 I have so many products to review for you though, like so many. I have a lot of empties at home sitting down ready to be reviewed but since I am in the states I can’t review those that are in Jamaica.
Since I’m in the states I thought I would get my hands on some new products. I was watching a few YouTube videos and I noticed that there were a lot of reviews on this Granier® Fructis® Curl Nourish Line and it seems to work for those with natural hair. This is actually my first time using products from a product line together to see the results I will achieve. Let’s see how long I can keep this up for. The first line of products I will be using is the Granier® Fructis® Curl Nourish Line.
Hair is almost entirely made up of protein, which gives hair its strength. ALL NEW, paraben-free Fructis formulas with Active Fruit Protein, an exclusive combination of citrus protein, Vitamins B3 & B6, fruit & plant-derived extracts and strengthening conditioners, are designed for healthier, stronger hair.
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.
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.
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.
So you might have just been joining the natural hair community or your already in it. You might be aware of some of the terms or abbreviations used in and around the natural hair community or you’re not. If so, I would love to give you a run-down of the ones I know. If there’s any I didn’t mention that you are aware of then you can leave them in the comment section below. Let’s get into this.
