Natural Hair & Children - Positivity!

We are always hearing about how the media, friends and colleagues change the way we see ourselves and determine our beauty standard whether it is around our natural curly, kinky hair or dark skin. Self-esteem building begins at an early age. If a parent instills in their child a solid foundation of self-worth through love and guidance from an early age, about all parts of themselves, then neither the media nor friends or colleagues will be able to destroy it.

Kinky Twist Extension No Braid Method

I have never liked the look of braids at the base of kinky twist extensions. In fact that is one of the reasons why I have not had kinky twist extensions put in - to me it just looks wrong. I have tried several alternative methods of putting Marley twists in and this is the only method that did not result in the extensions either falling out or getting tangled or knotted at the base.

    Top 10 Twistout Tips!

    Twist outs are one of the most popular styles for natural hair. Twists outs are done when you use two sections to make twists like a rope with your hair.

Two strand twists can be done on just about any hair length or texture for spectacular results that can last for a week or longer. Here are my top tips for a long lasting and shiny twistout.

    Power Shine Vinegar Rinse

    I love this recipe. Especially since I use my own home-grown Alpine Rosemary It has a strong, fresh wake-up scent so best to do this during the day and not at night when you want to sleep. It is invigorating for the mind and hair, increases circulation to the scalp and closes the hair cuticle to a soft, sheeny finish.
