I feel so bad about not posting in almost two months! I even noticed that I went from 29 followers to 26. That made me sad, but Ican't do anything about it. I have an excuse though as to why I haven't posted i so long. It was the end of the school year and I had so much to do regarding graduation, announcements, pictures, finishing school work, and a bunch of other things. But yesterday I finally graduated from high school! YAY! I'm so glad it is over. I made it and I'm proud of myself.

Anyways, here's an update on my hair. I recently got braid extensions. I did them myself! It was my first time and I think they came out nice. I will post a picture later.I am currently five months natural and wanted a different look for graduation and I wanted to see if low manipulation of my hair would really help it grow. I plan to keep them in for at least a month, maybe more.

Now that I'm on vacation, hopefully I will be able to post more often. Any suggestions on how to manage braids? I haven't worn braids since the 8th grade, that's four years, so help a sistah out. Thanks!


  1. Congrats on your graduation, I definitely understand about being busy, I just graduated from college myself after two years of deep studying :) Yay for you for continuing on your natural journey, it's been 5 months for me also.

  2. congrats on graduating.

    as for the braids, you definitely need to make a spritz to keep your hair moisturized. also consider diluting deep conditioners you normally use so you can spray it on the braids and do a regular DC with heat.

    this site here also gives some nice tips on caring for your hair while it's braided. check it out:

  3. Just wanted to answer your question in response to my twists. Yes I did blow dry my hair it makes it easier to twist and gives it a little length. I use the medium setting on low heat.

  4. Welcome back. Congrats on graduating. Good luck on your future plans.
