One thing we don’t talk about enough is confidence. I know most say once you go natural it is a whole new playing field, you’ll stop caring what other people think, etc… But truth is it is hard to stay confident in your beauty regardless of what you are now doing to your hair. And I am definitely one who is guilty of scrolling through the hair tag and looking at all the natural beauties and wanting my face to change, eye color, or wishing my hair would hurry up and grow. My boyfriend thinks it is ridiculous but it can be a bit of a struggle and I know I’m not the only one who has to deal with it. So I’d like to begin setting the wheels of confidence in each of us in motion. By beginning a little list. And whatever you feel I’ve left out please don’t hesitate to add on:
I watched a couple of youtube videos on it but I couldnt find any before and after pics to see what it looked like…ugh
I’ve lightened mine with it before if you look on my blog it should be there. It does work a little but in order to get a really huge result you have to repeatedly and consistently do it. When I did mine though I always added a bit of peroxide. Or lemon juice just to give it an extra boost.
For foreverbeautiful: Yes ma’am they look natural as can possibly be lol When I knew I wanted to install them I went to YouTube and clicked this: http://youtu.be/u10gaD-cYyw . MsVCharles also has a care for yarn braids video so that should help.
I told you guys I’d upload when I could !!!! And voila my yarn braids. Never did them before or tested it and I think I did a pretty good job on my own.
I’ve been thinking about it for a while and finally got the yarn Saturday night. I started the actual braiding process at 9:30 p.m., took a break to cut them at 1:20 am., Around 3 am I did the right side of my hair and went to be at 3:22 am. I then woke up at 7:40 and began my hair at 7:50 am. I finished a little after 2 pm. Now if you subtract the time I had to spend cutting and organizing my yarn w/o taking a break that’s at least 1hr and 30 min. So idk how long it took me exactly, I want to say around 8-9 hrs. And it was worth it. They look really really nice you guys. I bought the yarn from Michaels, The Craft Store. I used the SuperSaver bundle, all black. It cost $2.99. I only used one but I bought 2 in case. I used the 3 strand method so it may be different for you.
I’ll try and load pictures later. But aside from me installing them I have no clue of anything else. So if you guys would please what kind of styles can I do? Also how do I take care of these properly? And just anyother advice?
Use of chemicals
Direct and/or extensive contact with heat
Over-exposure to the elements
Lack of moisture
Lack of protein
Destruction of the cuticle from: brushing and/or combing and hygral fatigue
Your hair is like a plant. In order for it to grow you…

Oh yes. I like these lol I’d recommend you to go with Mayo, EVOO, Egg, and a fruit/vegetable that you may like. Banana, strawberry, avocado, etc… Those are all good. I also use Placenta, but that is totally up to you.

I’ve been noticing a lot of stigma around colored natural hair. Or really just colored hair in general. And as a person who dyed their hair (relaxed and natural) I thought I’d put in my 2 cents, wanted or not lol A lot of people say that if you dye your hair it will damage it. You will have to cut it off. It will fall out. But that isn’t necessarily true. In some cases yes, your hair can break off. As what happened to me when I was relaxed. I had dyed my hair red (which was delightful by the way) and I didn’t really know much about dealing hair once it was dyed or whatever. And my mother was letting me do my own thing seeing as how I had hit high school and thought I knew everything about life. And I didn’t really do what I needed with my hair. I used heat almost everyday and when I didn’t feel up to the heat process, I just threw it in a pony tail. Long story short that pony tail gave me an unwanted hair cut lmao And then I dyed my hair whilst being natural and it was a much different result. It was much better result. With that being said I’d like to provide some tips to help your colored hair:
Peace and Love guys ^_^
