The almighty chase of the curl & definition

Day 3-4 of a flat twist out


I’m always asked the question ” what do you use to get your hair curly?” ” How do you define your curls?”  The answer has remained the same for the last 6 months- I do flat twist out, using diluted lottabody setting lotion and my homemade whipped shea butter. I pineapple my hair at night, shake, and fluff in the am and ROCK OUT!

I have curly hair, however I’m no longer chasing curls and demanding that my hair is ” defined” 24/7. I do my twist out on Sunday and I don’t re twist until the following Sunday. I stretch a twist out for 5 days ( sometimes 6). The picture above is a 3rd or 4th day twist out. In the morning, I take down my hair ( from the pineapple), take my shower ( the steam help loosen the hair), after the shower ( i don’t not wet the hair- I just let the steam work), spritz with Oyin Handmade Juice N Berries ( or you could use water), fluff and go.. I’m now in love with my hair on day 3-5 of my twist out- I love the volume and loose curl. Day 1-2 the pattern is really tight and and not ” big” as I would like- not my fav look ( on myself).

Day 2 of a flat twist out 

MOISTURE is what defines and shapes our curls, not product. MOISTURE is what chases frizz away. Use products to enchace what you have, not create something that isn’t there. Curls come naturally- not in a jar ( or tube, or bottle).

{ posted on BlackGirlLongHair.com/} ” Don’t fight nature, embrace it. Haute hair, begins with healthy hair. So, moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! Trim every 3 months. Choose protective styles whenever possible. Avoid heat like the plague. Once you have mastered these principles, explore styling options that work with your natural curl pattern. If your hair is very kinky, roll with it…literally. Styles like finger twists and comb twists will produce awesome lasting texture with ease. These styles also tend to look better as they age. Gently separate the twist after a few days for greater volume and variety.”

Now that summer is creeping up on us and the the heat and humidity is in FULL EFFECT- Below are links to a few post to help you maintain healthy summer hair and keep the curls popping by providing tips on how to moisturize & maintain length.

#lupustaughtme To pay attention to what my body is saying to me. I should not ignore the little things. It has also taught me that I am the deciding factor in if I win or lose. Thank you Nate Williams @mrn867 - THE ONLY MALE WARRIOR WITH LUPUS WILLING TO PARTICIPATE! Thank you for lending your voice 💜✋🏾. . . . . #lupus #lupusawareness #lupuswarrior #spoonielife #chronicillness #NaturallyLupie #LupieChick #LupusChick #lupuschick #lupusadvocate #POP #blackhealthmatters #selfiesforlupus #selfies4lupus #lupusAwarenessMonth #lhandsign #LupusStrong #lupusadvocate #lupusawarenessmonth #lupusfighter #lupussurvivor #fucklupus #knowlupus #runlupus
@blackhealthmatters ・・・ One of the early symptoms of lupus is a low-grade fever for no apparent reason. Because it may hover somewhere between 98.5˚F (36.9˚C) and 101˚F (38.3˚C), you might not think to see a doctor. People with lupus may experience this type of fever off and on.

#lupustaughtme “The doctors may say one thing, but God has the last say so. Its taught me how strong I truly am. To appreciate the little things, the activities of my limbs, being able to run my fingers through my scalp. Ive learned to say no, stand up for myself, enforce boundaries, rest when I need it, listen to my body, and most of all, love, embrace, and enjoy life. Its a beautiful journey. “ Thank you Chakeria 🦋💜✋🏾. . . . . #lupus #lupusawareness #lupuswarrior #spoonielife #chronicillness #NaturallyLupie #LupieChick #LupusChick #lupuschick #lupusadvocate #POP #blackhealthmatters #selfiesforlupus #selfies4lupus #lupusAwarenessMonth #lhandsign #LupusStrong #lupusadvocate #lupusawarenessmonth #lupusfighter #lupussurvivor #fucklupus #knowlupus #runlupus
@blackhealthmatters ・・・ About 90 percent of people with lupus experience some level of fatigue. An afternoon nap does the trick for some people but sleeping too much during the day can lead to insomnia at night. It may be difficult, but if you can remain active and stick to a daily routine, you may be able to keep your energy levels up. Speak to your doctor if you’re living with debilitating fatigue. Some causes of fatigue can be treated.
