Hair Chronicles: Natural Hair For A Day

One thing that I thoroughly enjoy is when I can take my weave out and walk around looking like a crazy person lol. No really, its a very freeing feeling and I can actually feel my scalp and it can breathe! I ran around doing some last minute errands and people stopped me saying “oh my you look like Oprah” lol. I was cracking up but I do resemble her a lot, now if I could just be a stunt women or stand in for her, that would be awesome lol. I’m headed to Los Angeles in the morning, so Dootie suggested that I get a new hairdo. I told her that I checked the weather and its going to be pretty warm out, so she said an updo would work! I couldn’t have agreed more plus I won’t have her with me to curl and style my hair, so an updo sounded pretty good to me.

We started out by washing and conditioning my hair with my favorite hair care product Creme of Nature. Then once blow dried, Dootie molded my hair and we used a wavy textured weave hair for my updo. I will show you the final look in another post. I also wanted to state that most people think that when you wear weaves, there is some sort of issue with your natural hair or that you are bald lol. I LOVE to wear weaves because they are very simple to keep up, it protects my natural hair, I love the diversity you can wear with weaves and more. I keep my natural hair in tip top shape, consistently deep conditioning it and trimming my ends.

I also haven’t had a relaxer in over 20 years. I think I’ve only had a relaxer once in my life and that’s when I was in my early 20’s just to see what it was all about. My hairstylist back then told me that I didn’t really need one, maybe a texturizer but not a full relaxer. My hair appears thick but its very baby soft. Check back to see all the photos from BET Live Experience, its going to be a blast and I’m also teaming up with Creme of Nature again and doing a “Get Ready With Me” red carpet post too. Till next time! xoxo
