UPDATE: On Good News and My Cancelled DevaCutΒ 

Hey ladies!  I have to apologize for leaving y’all in the dark about my DevaCut that did not end up happening. Unfortunately, my original appointment, to have my first DevaCut was cancelled on me. Note it was not by choice, but the stylist had a “last minute” opportunity to go to Amsterdam (of all places) with her salon team. So part of me couldn’t get too upset because she doesn’t schedule her patients, that is the jobs of the people at the front desk, and I am not trying to be difficult. So I just took that as a sign that I need to wait longer before going through with it, and let my hair grow out some more.  In lieu of that cancellation, I decided I am getting a protective style to leave my hair alone for at least a month and a half before letting another stylist touch it. Still recovering from my bad unwanted haircut experience, I just need a change up and a break. My decision is to get som fresh …

NEW ARTICLE: Good News and Good Things Coming Soon!

Hi friends!  I am excited to begin blogging again after taking a break from it. Going through a bad and unwanted haircut honestly brought my spirits down, about my natural hair blogging, and I just wanted to get my hair fixed before sharing again. So what’s been up?! Well, I am scheduled to have my first DEVACUT this Friday April 15th, and I am praying for this trimming to bring my curls back to life, with a good shape, and make my hair wearable again. It’s been almost 2 1/2 months since the bad haircut so when I discovered a DevaCut certified stylist in the Nashville, TN area I had to make the call. Just a few more days to wait so stay tuned! (“My First DevaCut” will be posted by Saturday April 16th). For those that are not familiar, the DevaCut is essentially a specialized haircut for curly hair textures. So knowing that stylists are being trained and educated on how to take their time, and really do a detailed trim and shape, on my …

Hair Trim Trauma: My Bad Salon Experience Β  Β 

By Jackie M.         Let me start by saying this article is intended to be an expression of my emotions after experiencing a very bad “haircut” that wasn’t planned. I will explain why I selected the title above as you read. I have shared in past articles that I have been living in a new city, Nashville, for a little over 6 months now after getting married, and with my move came a struggle to find a true natural hair stylist for myself. I used to be very committed to seeing my stylist, when I lived in Indianapolis, and she was very experienced, she knew how to handle my hair in its natural state. I had no trouble with her actually trimming my hair, to maintain its length, to give me a nice shape, and to promote hair growth by trimming it in its naturally curly state (no blow drying or flat ironing necessary) Just to get the desired trim I wanted and needed….  So I have had every reason to be nervous about …

MONDAY MORNING LOVE: Forget About Flaws

By Jackie M.   It’s Monday, and I’m starting my week with this simple prayer for you. I pray you can look at yourself and embrace who you are without feeling like you are flawed or not pretty. I want you to see your outer beauty as God’s design and that you are a daughter of Christ. No daughter of the King should feel that she is not loved or that she does not have someone to love. I know Valentine’s Day just passed, and a lot of precious single women had a hard time dealing with their reality, but let me offer you this encouragement. Remember that God has a plan for your life. That does not exclude your love life. Pray for your future now, and give the desires of your heart up to the Lord.  You are not flawed, but rather FLAWLESS and PRETTY! You do not have to compare yourself to anyone else. Love you for the way God made you and take delight in our King!  Be Encouraged. Have a Blessed …

NEW PIC TUTORIAL: Date Night Curls for Valentine’s Day πŸ’•

   Hi friends! Today was wash day for me, a major production, and I had to get my hair right , before going out with my hubby tonight. We are going to a paint and sip spot her in the Ville (Music City) and I’m pretty excited! It’s Couples Night and I want to look cute for my man. So I whipped out my Curlformers and styled after a much needed shampoo and deep condition.  Products used pictured below: To Shampoo:   To Deep Conditon:      To Style:         Basically, I washed my hair while detangling with my wide tooth comb. I deep conditioned with the Shea Moisture hair masque and sat under the hooded dryer with a conditioning cap x 25 minutes on moderate heat. Rinsed conditioner out of my hair. I sectioned my hair in ponytails and twisted the large sections into Bantu knots to keep hair damp. Soak the excess water up with a tshirt. I applied Camille Rose Naturals Curl Maker to style my strands, section by section. I applied …
