Stretching Update

There have been a lot of happiness and some setbacks but I’m still trying to determine to stretch a few more weeks. My hair has been very very dry for the past few days. I don’t understand the cause of it besides the fact that I’ve been sick once again. My hair has been very frizzy as well.

You all should know that it’s fall/winter time so you have to take care of your hair! A few months ago, I learned about the L.O.C. Method which is moisturizing the hair with just liquid, oil and cream. It’s supposed to seal in the moisture in your hair. Recently from the founder of Sunshyne, she introduced the L.C.O. Method which is the Liquid, Cream and Oil method. I tried it out for myself using

-Water –EVOO & Leave-in Cream

My hair was moisturized and feeling fine until the next morning.

My hair was fried!!!!!!!

Take note that none of the products used were protein based.

I’m still going to do research.

Today I DC’d my hair which will be up tonight. (December 12)

My hair will be relaxed by December 22-Jan 1. By that time, I will be 18-19 weeks.


How many weeks do you stretch your relaxers?

Just Purchased

Small Haul

Hey all! I’m doing and feeling a lot better. I’ve been very slick this past Thanksgiving Break. I’m hoping and praying that I’ll feel back to normal so that I can begin my internship.
During the week, I managed to run some errands with my father and sister and I decided to pick up a few things.
So many people talk about coconut oil. I was running out of my oil and I thought that I couldn’t afford it again because I’m a college girl. That’s when I say it at Sam’s for $8. I noticed that people who are on blogs and especially people on YouTube, love coconut oil so much that they run out of it. I do have more oils but I wanted to at least find a big container so that it will last me a while.
Orgainic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

28 fl oz


Promises: Our Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, cold-pressed from fresh coconuts, is one of the healthiest oils in the world. Full of MCT’s aka good fats, Coconut Oils is an immediate source of energy. It is cholesterol-free, making it a perfect substitute for butter or margarine in cooking and baking. It also makes a great moisturizer! No other oil has more benefits that go beyond the kitchen.

TBH…. These aren’t really promises because it is just telling people what is in the coconut oil. There would have to be a lot of research to actually determine if all of this is accurate.
When I opened the bottle up to smell it, it actually smelled like it just came out of the actual coconut. Before I bought this bottle, I was using LouAna Coconut Oil. It didn’t have a smell to it at all so the extra virgin coconut oil has some benefits for me and my hair.

For the longest, I wanted a Denman Brush because of the good comments about it. I went to Sally’s and found the Denman Brush. Talk about jumping up and down and very excited that I did not have to pay for it through Amazon and wait for it to come to my home. After a good five minutes of jumping up and down, I went to get my wallet to determine how much money I had at the moment but NO MONEY!! Y’all, I was so upset but I found it again at K-Mart


Donna Medium Styling Brush #732


Even though, it is not the exact same Denman Brush, I noticed that it was a duplicate. The feel and look the same. The company name is Donna. Just like Denman, I noticed that there are three available styles.:
Medium Styling Brush #732
Large Styling Brush #733
Large Paddle Brush #736

Promises: The Donna name is recognized as a fine quality collection. Our personal promise of quality is in each and every one of our products. Look for our complete line of fine quality brushes available only from Donna.

I will definitely do a review on both products.

 Have you ever tried this product? What are the benefits to it?

If there are any questions, feel free to put them down below.




I'm Back

I’m Back Finally!!

Hey lovelies! Let me explain…

I’ve been very very sick during my break from school but I’m trying to get better. First of all, I want to say, Happy Late Thanksgiving. I’m very thankful or my family and my niece who is coming in two months. I’m also very thankful for seeing another day and conquering through being sick throughout the whole Fall Term. I say that because there were days where I did not want to go to classes due to the fact that I was ill and couldn’t breathe. But, I managed to get back on the Dean’s List. Other than that, I’m thankful every day for my life. I know you all are arguing what my hair is like right now. It’s a little dry because I need to M&S tonight. Besides that, my hair is getting thicker and becoming healthier.

While I’ve been MIA, I’ve been thinking about a lot of things. I’m going to do some changes to my blog by trying to change my background and motivate people to promote hair growth. But, I’m going to have a set schedule to keep you ladies and gents informed.

Look forward and stay tuned into my blog….
