Winter Hair Repair using the L.O.C Method 

By Jackie M. Hey y’all! It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Holidays are right around the corner, and with holidays comes bitter cold weather. So, my curls are in desperate need of some TLC. I decided to try the L.O.C. Method which stands for Leave-In/Oil/Cream in the order that it should be applied to your hair. Recently I tried using an Oyin Handmade product for the first time, and had pretty good results, so I took another trip to Sally Beauty to find an oil and cream to add to the leave-in. I’m slowly turning into a product junkie! Oh dear… seems like it anyways.  These were my products of choice for my winter hair repair regimen: 1. LEAVE-INOyin Handmade Juices & Berries Nourishing Herbal Leave-In Hair Tonic  2. OILSunny Isle Extra Dark Jamaican Black Castor Oil (JBCO) 3. CREAM Oyin Handmade Hair Dew Daily Hair Quenching Lotion  I also had to purchase a deep conditioning cap. This is a great brand below:  My Curl Health History: Before I applied my products, I was …

UPDATE: Length Retention Using Two Strand Twists

Hi ladies, I have to apologize for being absent the past month or so. My unwanted hair chop experience really caught me off guard and I honestly lost a little motivation in doing this natural hair blogging thing. But I am still taking good care of my shorter curls.  I estimate that my hair is about 5 inches shorter than before the bad haircut, and I have to work with it to get it back to the length I was falling in love with. My hair was draping past my shoulders when stretched before , so I’m just trying to style it the way I like, and deal since my curls don’t hang nearly that low.  Today I did a quick shampoo, deep condition, and set using Shea Moisture and Deva Curl products. I won’t go into detail this time. I just want to share my shorter twists for now, and get back in the groove of blogging.  My plan is to keep two strand twists in my hair most of the time, to protect …

NEW ARTICLE: Additional Thoughts after Unwanted Haircut and First Wash Day on My Chopped Curls

Hey peeps!  I know it’s been said before, so I will boohoo about this again… “I MISS MY HAIR LENGTH!”  My bad haircut, last weekend, really threw me for a loop but a curly girl’s gotta wash and condition her hair once a week, so I did it yesterday actually. Just sharing about the haircut that I didn’t want was painful enough for me. It’s almost like an unspoken but understood language amongst Black women or, any curly haired woman, with Afro textured hair, about why we feel the way we do when we start to get some past the shoulders hair length!  Am I the only one that sheds a tear because my hair no longer drapes past my shoulders when stretched like this?  (Forgive my memory pics below)                      As you can see I miss my hair length… I have accepted it by now and I’m protective styling my hair for now using my good ole trusty two strand twists. That’s how my hair got to the length it …
