My Ends!

I think it is time for another aggressive trim. My puff is very thick and soft but the ends are looking very random if you know what I mean. Kinda like they need to be patted into shape.

 I've felt a couple of hair knots on a few strands too.

I double checked my farmer's almanac for January's  Best Days and today is a good day to trim ends for growth!

I've posted a few new videos on YouTube. In one video, I give away my secret for maintaining my long eyelashes.


 Yes, they are naturally long but I use an oil mixture to maintain them. I felt compelled to make this video because more often than ever, ladies are asking me if my lashes are real!??? I did not understand why but as I watch tv, there are commercials for Latisse and other lash enhancements, lashes are fashionable. I was blessed to have naturally long lashes. Yay!

Another video that I recently posted is a mixtress recipe that rivals Kinky Curly Curling Custard and Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding.

I got the recipe from a fellow YouTuber InspiredCoils. My hair really loved the mixture as it gave me a chance to use up some good oils such as  Castor oil, Olive oil and Grapeseed oil and my Eco Styler Olive Oil gel. It was a winner.

While you're on my YouTube channel, please remember to rate and subscribe to my channel. This lets YouTube know that you like seeing natural hair videos and that perhaps we can begin to make the front page of YouTube also.

Thanks and Be Blessed!

What's Going On?

24 days into a new decade and I am wondering, "What's Going On?" The devastating earthquake in Haiti and the death of Teddy Pendergrass. I really thought that 2009 was rough with the passing of sooo many celebrities and regular people too but 2010 has blown in like a lion.

Hairwise, I've been just chillin'. In other words, being super lazy. I still wear my staple puff. I threaten to twist my hair every weekend but never do. My hair is healthy though.

I deep condition regulary and still sleep on my satin pillowcase.

I've managed to post a few new videos on YouTube so I've not been a complete slacker. Plans are in the works to really crank out some top notch videos in the MMX!

There is a wonderful Twitter hair chat every Sunday night. I think it's @ 10 PM Central but I've been late for the past couple of weeks. Use the following hashtag to join in: #naturalhair I love it.

Stay Tuned!

January MMX Best Days To Trim Hair

For MMX, I've decided to start every month with a post of "Best Days" to trim hair. Whether your goal is to trim hair for growth or to decrease growth, I will post the dates here on the first of every month.

If you've followed my posts, you know that I grew up with grandparents who followed the moon to live by. My Big Mama is 90 and healthy and still gets her crops to flourish by following the moon.

Best Days To Trim Hair To Increase Growth:
15, 16, 19, 20, 21, 24, 25, 28 and 29

Best Days To Trim Hair To Decrease Growth:
3, 4, 7, 8, 12, 13, 30

Disclaimer: Following moon phases has worked for me and are my experiences.

Happy MMX!

I had to come on to wish all my followers a Happy 2010!

I love the Roman Numeral version of 2010: MMX!

May all of your hair dreams come true!
