Happy Sunday Curlfriends! I'm still rocking my Havana twist - truly loving this
style! This weekend I washed and conditioned my hair and decided to pin up my
twist instead of just rocking in a bun. I pinned the front twist into a side
pompadour. Then I gathered the right side and back twist into one large braid -
pinning into place around the pompadour. I've gotten so many compliments today.

Hey Curlfriends! After one week with Havana Twist I think I'M IN LOVE! This style is so cute and stylish. I decided to take my hair down, deep condition, and redo my twist. This time instead of using gel I used Entwine Couture Crème De La Mold. When I initially used this product I must admit I gave it a horrible review :( BUT I must say this time around I used it correctly. It provided a strong hold, maximum control, and awesome shine to each twist.
Perfect Summer Style,
Last Friday after watching a few YouTube videos, I decided on a style I've been eager to try......HAVANA TWIST!! I used 4 bags of Equal brand Marley braiding hair and it took me 4 hours to
complete. After I figured out which way to twist to get the hair secure, completing the style was a WRAP! See the slideshow below for step by step instructions and products used (Leave any questions in the comment box). I started on freshly washed, blown out hair.
This will definitely be a go-to protective style for me for summer and fall. Have you ever tried this style?
Here are a few styles I've been rockin
I know you're probably already looking at the picture like ....WTH????? I know, I know I didn't mean to scare you but this was my hair last night. Sunday night I roller set my hair in a attempt to straighten which turned into a MESS! It was saved by the miracle working flat twist LOL!

Today's results after spritzing with oil and water, applying shea butter for moisture, using BB Tropical Roots twist cream and Eco Styler gel (red top) to flat twist my hair. Upon take down this morning I exhaled LMBO.......A good hair day!
To fun and unpredictable hair,
Wednesday was my birthday and of course I wanted to rock a fierce twist out. WELL I decided to use a new product and ended up with just OKAY results in my book. My motto was definitely in full effect yesterday "No matter how it looks, you better ROCK IT!" cause IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!!!!
Review of the Elasta QP Mango Butter Curl Defining Pudding: This product was cream based but not moisturizing enough to penetrate my thick 4b strands. The product claims to leave hair feeling like silk, but it left mine so far from that. When I applied to my hair it appeared to coat my strands but when dried it left my hair dry, frizzy, and dull looking. This product didn't aid in creating or maintaining the definition of my twist. To add shine back to my hair I used Original Moxie Twist Mist to add some form of shine. One thing I did like about the Curl defining pudding was the mango smell. The smell wasn't overpowering but delightful.
My hair lasted through the work day. By the evening I had to spritz my hair with oil and water to refresh and create another style for my birthday dinner..........This one was DONE! I pinned the front into a pompadour and left the rest out.
Have you tried this product? What are your thoughts?
Happy Friday Curlfriends! Tonight I'm headed to the Kings of The Mic Tour (LL Cool J, De La Soul, Public Enemy, and Ice Cube) with my girls so I had to think of a style to rock. I wanted something a little funky to go with my outfit. Ya'll ALREADY know that flat twist are my staple so I figured I would incorporate the flat twist and flat twist out.
On freshly washed hair, using BB's Tropical roots twist cream I parted each section to make medium sized flat twist on the left side of my head. I used Eco styler gel (red top) along my edges to ensure a more uniformed look. On the right side of my head I continued to make flat twist with regular twist strand twist in the middle to help with definition. The hair in the middle of my head has a mind of it's own! I used perm rods on the end to add a curl. I even had my brother give me a lining so my style would have a more polished look. This morning I took down the twist on the right side, pinning the ends of the twist from the left side to make it look like it flowed together......I loved the definition! With the concert being outside, if the humidity wants to attack the right side will grow bigger and bigger = funky and FOXXY!

It's the weekend and it's looking like a fun and busy one! So I wanted a style that was cute, flirty, and no fuss..........SOOOOOOOO a side ponytail was a must! I created this style using 2 bags of 100% kankelon hair. I braided one bag into a large braid and the second bag I split into two and two-strand twisted. I wrapped the braided hair around my bun first, then the twisted hair. So easy to do - you must try it!
Gel used: Eco Styler gel with Moroccan Argan Oil (red top)
The LOVE of curls........Today I fell in love again with my natural curls. My flat twist out was just perfection today!
How do you feel when your style turns out just right? I feel....FOXXY!
What's your favorite way to rock a old twist out?
For me its pulling out the dependable "bobby pin" and start pinning!
Here is a style I came up with today - I was going for a rocker type look.

Hey Curlfriends! Over the last week or so I've been rocking a ponytail. I make sure my hair is moisturized and gather into a bun. This particular style I used 1.5 packs of 100% kankeleon hair. 1 pack was french braided and the half was two strand twisted - put them together and VOILA!
Would you try for a easy spring/summer style?
