Protective Style (Sew-In) Again!

For the month of March I have not been that good to my hair. I straighten my hair twice ! Something I rarely do. I haven't done much with my hair, which is why I haven't posted anything. I did co wash twice last week and deep condition as well. I used a new deep conditioner that I had in my stash. I decided to finally try it out because of a YouTube video I saw. That deep conditioner was really good, but that was my first time trying it so I can not say a lot on it yet. So for my protective style it will be a sew in again and I'm getting it installed this week ! I spoke about this in my previous update and wanted to give my hair a months break, sort of. I have already purchased the hair which I will share soon (Lola Hair Company). I am going to do my normal wash day prior to the install, which will be this Friday. I am not going to put any heat on my hair though. I plan to do a roller set and then blow out ONLY the roots, then wrap my hair. I want to do a light trim to my hair but I just did that in January. It was NOT the best trim though but I might just do it and cut about half an inch. I have very few split ends but I feel that if I trim now I can avoid getting a trim later and losing out on the length I gained. Reason I want to get another sew in is because trying to style my hair can be really upsetting. I don't get the results I want, like ever! Plus sometimes I get this confidence issue when I wear certain styles. Well I am looking forward to my next install and know it will be another successful protective style.


  1. I recently just permed my hair after being natural for 9 months . I missed the relaxed look and i tried almost everything to keep it straightened natural but nothing work so i had to perm it. A New Natural Straightening system just came out and im so sad about it. Your hair journey is very inspiring.

    1. Aww I'm sorry to hear that. I know how hard it is to accept your natural hair when you enjoy the straight look. I am still in a process of trying to accept it and find natural styles that look nice. & Thank you for saying that it means a lot :)

Am I Protein Sensitive ?

I had recently purchased Aphogee 2 Minute Reconstructor and The Keratin & Green Tea leave in. I felt that my hair was in desperate need of some protein being that it was breaking a lot and because I thought my hair was going through moisture overload. Every time I washed it, my hair will feel way to mushy and soft. So today I decided to try the products and my results weren’t so good. This is what I did :
Shampoo with my Neutrogena Triple Moisture & then condition with the Aphogee conditioner. On the bottle it says to either leave it on for 2 or 5 minutes. I don’t know how long I left it in being that I was in the shower, but I do know that I didn’t leave in on for long because I didn’t know the time and I was to nervous having this product in my hair. I want to say it had to be at least 4 minutes that it was in my hair. Once I rinsed it out my hair felt AMAZING! My hair felt so strong and thick. I was just blown away at how good my hair felt. Usually my hair feels like mush an…

So I Made Waist Length

I made my long term goal! I'm finally waist length. I have been on a hair journey for a very long time and through so many trial and errors I found what helped me. My growth has definitely come from protective styling. I'm either doing a sew in and if not that my hair was always in a bun. Also having a simple hair routine is key! Not only that but keeping up with my ends. I plan to get my ends lightly trimmed but the only person I trust is so far from me but very soon I will get one. I might try to do a new hair goal of hip length but honestly not sure having long hair can kind of be annoying, but I'm not complaining I love my current length.
