I never let my daughter wear her hair free, because last year her ends got very damaged and I had to keep it protected to restore it.

Her hair was flourishing and then because I didnt have the right moisture for her hair her ends suffered. All is well now.

I decided after deep conditioning today that I would leave her hair free. I keep her hair styled with the #africanthreading during the school week. This week is #springbreak so why not do something different?!!!

What I used was the #hellohydration to #deepcondition after rinsing I applied coconut oil to her scalp massaged it in and then sealed her hair strands with castor and jojoba oil. After that I applied the #darkandlovely aunaturale #softeninghairbutter basically I did the #locmethod (its super soft)

I keep her #washday or #cowash day very short and simple she like all children has a short tention span.

We have similar texture but hers is more dense (fuller) and she has a natual volume to her hair I love my daughter’s hair its so beautiful.

She loved her hair I loved it and everythings is good! LOL!

Tonight ill just add a bit more moisture and plait it.

This is a great video! Please watch!

Romans 12:1-2 comes to my mind.
Those verses have more meaning to me as I grow on Christ.

Everything about this world and what has been attached to us in our old way of living (sin) has to be transformed and that comes with the renewing of our mind which comes by seeking to be close to God the father considering (surrendering) totally our lives in every aspect seeking HISwisdom knowledge and understanding.

That song says I give myself away so you can use me, but we surrender parts of ourselves wjen he wants ALL of you.

If someone is use to engaging in certain acts amd their mind hasnt been renewed or been given a revelation they wont see anything wrong.

But its like as you draw closer to christ you are not even going to want to even do any of those things because you have a different perspective, you want to be holy and consider god even in what you entertain in sex.

Special spotlight: Longhairdontcare2011(Dominique Banks) I remeber when I first started learning about naturalhair care and haircare in general I watched her from time to time. I just remember being so amazing at the thickness of only one half of her hair and the lenght as well.

She managed her hair with grace because indeed it was plentiful!

She had kidney complications from lupus and on the gofundme donation page it says she then suffered a heart attack.

I didnt know her personally she seemed to be really kind. Condolences to the family.

Life is but a vapor, be secure (right) with Christ!!

If this can help someone in the midst of them being torn about restarting an old relationship;that would make my heart so glad.

Relationships end for reasons sometimes its not the right time and sometimes it was never meant.

Today im referring to the never meant relationship. Relationships that were never meant to be can be devastating to one party involved. You dont understand why and you are left broken and to heal alone. You try to move forward everyday fighting back the tears. Deep down inside you still love them. Can barely eat sleep or even do the things you use to.

One day when you think you are ok they come back wanting to start over and still loving them you might quickly agree after talking about it or you may be torn.

But realize that relationship ended for a reason. I prayed about my situation and almost immediately God gave me an answer and it was “DON’T GO BACK”. I fougth with that for a while and I went through so much emotionally trying to let go and heal because if god was telling me not to go back it was sonething he foresaw that I didnt because of being BLINDED by love. It was my choice to listen or do my own thing.

You know that place in life you stop listening to people say that there more to life than for example your 9-5 or just staying within the community in which you were born?? Yeah i’m there not and ive been there for sometime and im struggling to find my way because there truly is something more in my life that I am suppose to do.

Im only 24 and im to this point. Im not seasoned in a career and I think that its a great thing to be at this place early in life because I wont wake up after 10-15 in a career that doesnt fulfill me anymore. So I take this unsettled spirit I have as a blessing. There are worse things but specifically referring to the work you do there is not worse than conforming when there is something greater inside of you.

This is such a struggle but I know once I get to where im suppose to be im life that this will be a testimony to share with others that they are not alone in the way they feel which is unsettled!

Have you reached this point?

NO FILTER! I wish that #stevemccurry could teach me everything he knows! His work is “The” best I’ve seen this far.

His work is like know other it tells stories opposed to photographers who rely on cool effects etc. Not thats its totally bad.because we all show our creativity in different ways. #stevemccurrys work is just priceless and breathtaking!!

See I would love to have an option as this in my area. I live in an area where there are no whole foods, trader joes , no healthfood store at all. The only fresh store option I have that sells organic produce and a small selection of other foods is a store chain called #harristeeter.

They love to promote fresh organic options in the media but in certain areas there are very few fresh and organic options. I dont think that the larger cities should reap all the benefits when it comes to food especially.

If you want to educate us about fresh and organic foods and product broaden the markets to expand into many areas. And if you cant put actual locations in certain areas create delivery services.

I knoe #amazonfresh is new but with most new things they never really expand to allow the experience for kany areas.

I have no problem paying for a better quality of food, but where is the opportunity? ?

What are your thoughts?

African threading! A way to stretch natural hair without heat or stretch the hair to flatiron without the added heat of the blowdryer.

This is a great way to achieve a blowout without the blowdryer. It takes a couple of days for the hair to fully stretch but compared to what heat can do to the hair over time I think this method its most effective and healthier for the hair.

You will need thread the thread used for sewins and just do your regular moisture routine.

You part a section of hair however you want and some make a knot in the thread at the base to secure but I just wrap it around the base of the hair and secure by wrapping.

I then take the thread down the lenght of the hair to create a two strand twist look. You are suppose to push the thread up the hair lenght but i dont. When I get to the ends I wrap them completely to protect them and then I tye a loop knot for easy removal later……

Faith Talk: Its just that simple! All situations come to perfect you and build your faith, and after you’ve been through some things you are.strong to pin point why that situation is happening.

You get to a.point were you can say nope I dont believe or accept that because God has told me different. Things that cone our way isnt always the devil he gets too much credit, but God will bring some things your way to test where you truly are. Are you trusting him like you say you are.

I have NOTHING but my faith in God right now and im expecting for Him to turn it around. We live in a go get it self made world but if God doesn’t allow it, its because he wants to see your.faith in HIM everything we do is suppose to bring God glory. He will block you from doing anything in your own power so that you.can say if it werent for God nothing would have been done about this situation.

Thank you God you get all the glory there is nothing great that I have or.can do in my own power but I look to you for my help.

God Bless.

I pray that this encourages somebody to increase their faith in God today forward! !

I have 4c hair but all of my hair isnt 4c.

Towards to middle and front sections my hair is 4c and around the parameter it is a looser texture more spiral. To show the difference in texture I included a few pictures. The big picture is from 2012 I just blown out my hair and began to flatiron the back it straightens sp well. The top two pictures (2012) show the texture. I didnt have heat damage or any texturizer that is my natural texture. Depending on the conditioner the texture may be a wavy texture or spiral curls. Me and my sisters like to call it Malaysian Curly lol! I have similar texture around the parameter excluding thw very front and then ky edges are a.very fine straight texture. Weird combo. And the picture with the pink headband just shows the difference in the texture in the front than in the back. That picture was taken this year I believe or the last part of 2013.

I love all my hair but fir styling purposes I prefer my 4c hair. It holds style longer than the back does. Because the texture it so loose it unravels when twisted.

What is your texture or textures?
What experiences do you have with each?

Goodmorning! I’ve never done a #tbt throwback Thursday!

I have so many pictures of hairstyles from the first time I was natural, but I wont flood your feed! Lol.

This was 2012 I think I was around two years natural at this point and the hairstyle was spur if the moment. I think I had blownout my hair and came up with this. It could use a bit more polishing but I was happy I had done any style at that point.

It was all pushed upward and I just started punning, and then I did a tuck and roll on the top portion. The flower was actually a ring from forever21 I pinned it into place. Improvising lol!

I would love to see some of your throwback pictures of your hair journey!! If you are willing to share just hashtag myhairismyglory.
