It Was Fun But....

I am back in braids! After a week and a half break, I have gotten my hair cornrowed! They took about 2 hours to complete and they look like this:




I love my cornrows! However, my only issue is that the braider braided a wee bit too tight. So, I spent last night with a can of oil sheen and a rattail comb loosening them suckers up! Next time I'm gonna have to tell her not to braid so tight (which is odd since it didn't feel tight when she was braiding....)


My braid regimen is still the same. I will continue to keep my scalp clean and moisturize my hair. I'm still using Hawaiian Silky 14 in 1 but I am also using a product by a local vendor. It's called Nahbila's Essentials Hair and Skin moisturizer. It contains: distilled water, aloe vera, glycerin, peppermint and rosemary extracts, virgin olive, almond, soybean, kukui nut oil, vitamin E, and fragrance. So far, I like it. It is very light and does moisturize my hair. It's also inexpensive! I paid $4 for it! Either way, I'll be alternating between those 2 moisturizers. I can keep cornrows in for up to 4 weeks so I will probably be taking these out at the end of the month and getting another set put in during the month of August.

That's all for now, just wanted to update you guys!


  1. The style looks wonderful on you.

  2. Hey, how was the local vendor's moisturizer? I live in Bham and want to start using as many products sold by blk ppl as possible. Wait, was it sold by a blk person, LOL?

  3. @Prissy Mum Thank you :)

    @Shara My hair actually likes the moisturizer. It is very light and perfect for the summer! The people who make it used to own Changes Natural Hair Salon (I dunno if you remember that) but now have a salon out in Fultondale. They have been going around doing transitioning to natural hair workshops which is where I purchased it. You can check out and look into it! :)
