I've always had naturally curly hair and a love for natural beauty. From time to time I'll post pictures of my own hair but, for the most part, I'll blog inspirational hairstyles of others. (Yes, that is me pictured in the sidebar)
Feel free to leave a message in my ask box and check out my FAQs!

PS, I can’t follow back on this blog because it’s a “vlog” attached to my personal one, but I am always open to follow new natural hair blogs on my regular tumblr: young-disposition.tumblr.com.

Ladies and Gentleman, the man that will be in history books. He was throwing the burning tear gas. Not to the cops but away from the children protesting. In his American Shirt and bag of chips. Check his twitter.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOST

HE HAS ALSO STATED NOT TO PURCHASE THE T-SHIRTS THAT ARE BEING SOLD WITH HIS IMAGE BECAUSE HIM NOR THE TOWN OF FERGUSON WILL SEE THAT MONEY! 

Just needs to be stated again!

Maintaining Senegalese Twists (With Extensions) 101
It has been a week and a day since I spent eight, stiffening hours at my braid shop getting my Senegalese Twists installed. They definitely took some getting used to as my braids still felt tight against my scalp up until about day four, but now I’m whipping my hair back and forth and throwing my hair into ponytails since the braids have loosened up considerably. I also washed my hair six days after my installation (this junk gets itchy fast) and have been spraying my strands with my own concocted braid spray. Keep reading for more details!
Moisturizing
I made a braid spray mixing water, Shea Moisture’s Coconut Curl & Style Milk, and Jojoba oil in a bowl with my fingers until the moisturizer was smooth with minimal chunks (I applied much more water than moisturizer so the spray would be more watery but still make my hair feel slightly oily to the touch thanks to my squirt of Jojoba Oil). I poured my mix into my spray bottle which I shake vigorously before each use. I spray this mix onto my hair everyday until it feels slightly damp to ensure that my natural hair is moisturized while concealed in this protective style. Sorry I don’t have exact measurements for this mixture of mine, but I just kinda winged it and haven’t needed to make another batch since. When I make my next batch, I’ll provide further details. On my scalp, I solely use Jojoba Oil as I find it is the best oil to moisturize my skin and it absorbs very well. I apply a few dabs here and there every other day.
Hair Washing
I took an applicator bottle and diluted my favorite shampoo in it with water. I parted my twists in four sections and applied the diluted shampoo to the scalp of each section and gently rubbed the dirt off my scalp. After my scalp was cleansed, I worked my diluted shampoo onto my strands until they were soaked and squeezed each section repeatedly to ensure that the shampoo was absorbed into my twists. Then I hopped in the shower and rinsed out the shampoo off my strands and scalp. I thought my curls would instantly pop out of my twists but to my surprise I have had very minimal fly aways. I liberally applied my favorite conditioner onto each section making sure to squeeze in the conditioner into my strands, and left it sitting on my twists for about 15 minutes before thoroughly rinsing my hair. Using two t-shirts, I split my hair in two sections and let the excess water soak into the shirts which I magically knotted onto the end of my sections. It took my braids about 30 minutes to stop dripping then I applied my self-made braid spray liberally onto my strands until they felt moisturized. A few hours later, my hair completely dried.
Thankfully, protective styles offer a semi-carefree lifestyle of minimal hair maintenance and I am LOVING how easy it is for me to get up and get out without having to worry how I should style my hair or incessantly checking the humidity index for the day on my Weather Channel app. Thus far, this has been a fulfilling experience and I kind of wish I had dreads now so I could enjoy this minimalist lifestyle a lot longer haha.
Also, I have been taking Biotin 2500 mg tablets for the past week and a half to aid in hair health and growth during this time so we’ll see if this boost in vitamins makes any difference. Thanks for reading!

This was super helpful for me, as I’m considering these twists, thank you!

You’re very welcome! Let me know if you have any questions about Senegalese Twists

Dayo + Natasha’s Engagement Shoot - I had the biggest honor of capturing this lively and energetic couple yesterday (6/20/14). There was just pure excitement in the air, and they did a great job at channeling it into affection. They complete each other perfectly and that’s what love is all about, finding someone who can complete and understand you no matter what your flaws are. I wish them all the best!
