Happily Ever Natural

Hello Naturalista’s!!! Sorry I have been MIA, I was sick with some sort of stomach bug that had me in the BED!! Any hoo, IM BACK! And with my much awaited Marley/Havana twist tutorial. If you remember a few weeks back I posted about my Marley twist attempt and I FAILED!!! *bows head* BUT… I CONCURED and succeeded!!!!!!!!!!! YAYYYY!!!!

Details: The hair I used was called Equal Marley braid Hair, I got it from my local BSS for $5. Many have asked how I got it to look so soft, I researched and this brand was a softer of the Marley hair and more easy to manage

1.  Full Head

2. Ponytail or ends only

The purpose of the baggy method is to promote hair growth by locking in moisture. When you baggy your ends, after moisturizing them, you will promote length retention.

Happy Thursday!!

Happily Ever Natural

Hey Naturalista’s!!! Transitioning? Don’t know what to do with your hair? Want something new? That will be low manipulation? Nothing is working for you, ready to relax it?

My Instagram, and Facebook has been blowing up with many naturalistas tucking their tresses away for the winter. So why not try a protective…

So you are transitioning and you are soo tired of dealing with your two different textures? Dealing with two textures makes transitioning very difficult!! One part of your hair is straight, while the other is curly or wavy!

You are at your whit’s end!! Right? You are attempting to maintain the two textures of your hair and this can lead to breakage. Don’t give up or give in to the creamy crack just yet!! There are ways to make your transition to natural an easier process while combating breakage.

Tip 1: Moisture, Moisture and Did I say Moisture?

Have you heard of the line of demarcation? Well this is defined as the line where your natural hair and relaxed hair meets. This line can be very fragile so you must treat it with care.

Hello My favorite Naturalistas!! I know I know I have been away but so much has been going on in my life!! As most of you know I recently got married, and we are expecting our bundle of Joy in June.

Check out deets below of my wedding and reception!! xoxo

  We wed March 22, 2014 at City Hall, Located in Chicago, IL. This was one of the best decisions we have ever made. It was so nice, so memorable, quick and easy with NO HASSLE AT ALL!! I really enjoyed the day!! Afterwards we had breakfast with my cousin, and we stayed at a 5 star hotel in downtown Chicago called the Langham. If you are in Chicago check that hotel out! It is AMAZING!!!
