I'm in LOVE!!!

To date I have not truly fell in love with any particular products. I'm in like with a lot of products but until now I have never been in love. I've mentioned before that I live in Minneapolis and it gets cold as hell here. Cold weather wreaks havoc on anyones hair be it relaxed or natural, so finding a product that truly give my hair a moisture boost was essential. I count myself lucky to have stumbled upon Dacry's Botanicals Avocado & Honey Twisting Cream

Here is the product description:
NEW Avocado & Honey Twisting Cream

Braid & Twist Styling Cream

Our Avocado & Honey Twisting Cream is excellent for braiding, twisting and adding much needed moisture to dry, coarse curls:)

This is a very thick and concentrated cream that is highly moisturizing and softening for type 3-4 coarse hair types.

It is a very thick milky white cream and is scented with Ylang Ylang and Lemon!

Once you try it, you'll be hooked!

Micro Twist Out Update

Those tiny two-strand twist that I painstakingly put in really paid off...I LOVED the look and rocked it in all its fabulousness while in Atlanta. Not to mention that this style has staying power!! Unfortuately this is the only picture I have of myself rocking the micro twist-out, but the next time I do them I will actually do a tutorial, showing how the look on day 1, 2 , 3 ect. They actully look better as the days progress and your hair gets bigger. Here's a pic of me and my law school buddy and soror Katrina.

Carol's Daughter

Where do I start...I was recently in Atlanta and paid a visit to Lenox Mall where they have a Carol's Daughter store. Though I am not a fan of Carol's Daughter hair products for my hair, I just had to go into the store because I simply love Lisa Price and the empire that she has created. Can we just say that I loved, loved, loved my visit to the store. The staff were wonderful...all of them young people with natural hair and full of energy and enthusiasm. Though the store is small it is well laid out and let me tell you there were plenty of folks in there buying everything from hair products to bath and body products.
There was natural hair talk in the store between myself and 3 other They asked what Carol's Daughter product I used on my hair. I replied that I don't use Carol's Daughter hair products and the sales associate was open and asked what I used since my hair looked nicely moisturised which followed with one of the women asking if she could touch my hair and professing "yeah it is sooooo soft."
The store was just such a warm, friendly environment that it was enjoyable mixing and mingling with all the folks. Customer service was top notch. If you aren't a fan of Carol's Daughter hair products, I urge you to try some of her other products as this company is truly deserving of your hard earned dollars. I did not leave the store empty handed and was more than happy to drop a few bucks on some lovely scented skin butters.

Twist Out Trial & Error

So i put these very small two strand twist in my hair on Friday night and I plan on leaving them in until Wednesday and then taking them out and seeing what kind of twist out i get. In the past I simply twist my hair in larger twist and then take them down the next day and rock the style. I've been looking on youtube and everyone says that a twist out looks best if the twist have been left in for at least 4 days and that you should make them small because as we all know, our hair swells. Ill keep u posted on the results. By the way I know I look at hot funky fried chicken mess in the

Checkout this video from lovennappiness to achieve a great twist out.
