Free Samples: Pantene


Real Husband of Hollywood

This isn't an official show as of yet but it is awesome based on the teasers. It includes Kelvin Hart, Nick Cannon, Nelly, Bobby Brown, Jermaine Dupri, and Tami Rowan. It is crazy funny. The thing i like is that is a non-real reality show, but they talk about real matters that's going on and real things that are going on and their lives and other celebs lives-- RUMORS! But it isn't a reality show that's like for real for real if you get what I'm saying. CHECK IT OUT YOU GUYS !!!

Sewing Project: One shoulder dress

I designed this dress myself, sketch it,sewed it & everything. I made it out of a red blanket (wink wink). It only took about 1 hour. No pattern, no sewing machine (it was currently down, not working). I have a video tutorial on how i did it. CHECK IT OUT !!!

How to have a successful 6 month stretch (video)

Sorry for the horrible hair, was about to start the relaxing process. Note: make sure your hair don't look like mines while stretching lol. I have to do better next time. haha

6 month stretch results (video)

Here are my results from my 6 month stretch. Gained around 3 inches of new growth. Retained length by following "attack of split ends" guidelines. 

Wooohooo, APL here i come

Attack of the split ends !!!

Split ends are pure evil ! How to limit them. Take care of the ends
1. Moisture & seal the ends
2. Baggy the ends (putting moisturizer on the ends, and placing shower cap over ends or whole head)
3. Hot oil treatment (oil on head, & ends, rinse out)
4. Green House Effect the ends (Putting oil on the ends & hair, placing shower cap on and scarf,keeps ends oil)
5. finger combing( too much combing produces split ends)
6. Low manipulation(less coming and heat)
7.Less to no heat 

What made me start my hair journey??

Of course DAMAGED HAIR !!! My 1st through 5th grade year my mother took care of my hair. My 6th grade year i was in control of my own hair. I would mix the "Sofee" greases together creating "growth aids" (I thought). I would use heat every single day (EVERY). From curling irons to flat irons i would use it all. My mom would alway tell me "Girl your damaging your hair, Girl your hair is breaking off". But i didn't believe her.
 Right here my hair was breaking off. & i only had one long piece(pictured) & the rest was broken off.
Went to beautician for a fresh cut (freshmen year)

 Same cut
A year later my hair only grew about 3 inches to 2 inches longer (A YEAR) Slow growth


I knew it was time for a change and i wanted maximum growth, so i started a hair journey. I came across Sunshine from Hairlista video and joined the social network & began my hair journey.
First official hair journey pic. Let the journey begin. Started Journey March 17
