Roots Only bottle
This bottle is designed for hair color applications, however, I think it would be great for ACV rinses or applying oil to the scalp.
Just Grow Already did a great review on it.
This is one of those items that is great to have, but I’m not sure if it is really a necessity or “must have”.
Your thoughts?

After wearing my hair straight for the past two weeks, I was finally ready to go back to my curly self. You know what that means? Time for a protein treatment. 
My go-to protein treatment is KeraCare Super Reconstructor. It is, hands-down, the best protein treatment I have ever used.
Here’s how I use it:
Towel blot freshly washed hair, and put into 4 sections.
Saturate each section with the Super Reconstructor, comb through, and braid (or twist) to keep it out of the way.
Let hair dry completely. You can sit under a hooded dryer to speed up the process. (Please note: DO NOT! comb/unbraid your hair once it begins to dry.)
Once dry, thoroughly rinse your braids/twists. After the hair is wet, you can unbraid and finish rinsing.
Follow with your favorite moisturizing conditioner. 
If you try it, let me know what you think.

I had my hair straightened yesterday for the first time in 9 months. Cannot believe how long it has gotten. 


(Yes, I know those ends need some attention. I will address that tomorrow)

Major twist out success. 

After they dried I stretched them using a blow dryer and the tension method. 

I think I&#8217;ve just updated my new go-to.

“My natural hair doesn’t make me brave…my extensions don’t mean I’m afraid” (by chescaleigh)  My girlfriend Nicole and I had quite a chuckle during fashion week when the door girl complimented Nicole’s fro by saying she was “so brave”. Um…thanks? And while I’m always flattered when people compliment my locs, I can’t stand that so many then criticize women wearing perms, weaves and extensions in the same breath. How you decide to wear your hair is your own personal choice. Let’s not let hair be yet another thing that divides our community.ps. the above image was created in photoshop and illustrator. please click to enlarge.
