Trying Bright Purple Color On My Type 4 Hair

By haircare No Comments

I have a secret confession. I’ve wanted to color my hair something wild and untraditional FOR YEARS! I’d always look longingly at other people who colored their hair fun colors, but never dared to do it myself because of the risk of damaging my fine 4c hair.

I’ve had experience with coloring my hair with blonde highlights in the past and I’m always left with a dry detangling nightmare. It wasn’t worth it, so I settled on get the occasional colored wig to live out my fantasy…until today.

The Truth About Daily Wash and Gos For Working Mom

By haircare No Comments

Testing the Anthony Dickey wash and go method as a working mom. Can it really be done daily? Would I do it daily?

Recently I got a one on one private lesson via Zoom from the King of Wash and Gos himself. I got amazing results, but today I”m testing it out to see if I could actually do his wash and go daily on my 4c hair…while being a busy, working parent.

I Tried Hair Grease For a Braid Out…and Got Played

By haircare No Comments

I used hair grease as a sealant for a braid out and had a bad turnout. Sometimes it feels customary for content creators such as myself to always have outcomes for hairstyles that always look amazing. The reality is sometimes we have not so great hair days. In this video I have attempted to use hair grease, an old school favorite, to create a defined braid out and I had a natural hair fail.

By haircare No Comments

This is the easiest and most effective way I’ve seen to stretch a wash and go without using heat. Look, I’m a busy person. I’m a mother, wife, employee, and entrepreneur – the shorter the process the better. I picked up some satin hair ties from H&M on sale and went to town. 

In this video above you will see me using the banding method on my 4c wash and go for two night in a row. Then I’ll compare the results. I truly hope you enjoy this vlog style experiment.

diffuser on 4c wash and go

I Tried a DIFFUSER On My Type 4 Wash and Go *Surprising Results*

By haircare No Comments

Let me be frank. I didn’t think 4c hair had a reason to use a diffuser. Furthermore, before this year, I’d never imagined getting amazing results from a wash and go – period. I was like many type 4 naturals whom dreaded detangling so much that any style that encouraged having the hair in its natural state looked like a nightmare waiting to happen. Also — when is the last time you’ve seen a mainstream brand showcase a 4c wash and go in their marketing campaigns? I’ll wait.  Needless to say, I’ve never found a reason to own a diffuser attachment until today.

How To Get The Perfect Wash and Go on Type 4 Hair

By haircare No Comments

This video is a step-by-step guide to doing a wash n go on type 4 natural hair. It features my guest Anthony Dickey, the King of wash and gos. Anthony Dickey is the owner of the haircare line and salon “Hair Rules” and was the first to open a multi-texture salon with key focus on curly, kinky, and frizzy hair types and textures.

Since beginning my natural hair journey in 2010 I had heard of his work, but hadn’t given this method a try until earlier this year when I decided to try a wash and go for the first time. Admittedly, I didn’t think a wash and go would yield me good results until I gave it a shot. There’s been much trial and error, but today Anthony agreed to come on camera and show us how it’s done.

Best Product To Regrow Thin Damaged Edges | Type 4 Hair

By haircare No Comments

The hairline can be a sensitive subject for many people. I have family members that have severe alopecia, so when my edges began thinning after having my son, I assumed I was on the same track. For two years I’ve tried different hair regimen techniques that would work for a while, then stop working after a month. My edges would thicken then get thin over and over again, so I decided to try something new.

I tried hair grease on 4c hair after 15 years

I FINALLY Tried Hair Grease After 15 Years Of Avoiding It

By haircare No Comments

Blue Magic is one of those childhood staple products that I don’t think I could ever forget. I remember sitting between my mother’s legs to get my hair done while she greased my scalp. I remember there were two blue magic jars – the blue one and later on we switched to the white one. Well today I found the blue one and am trying it in a completely different way than I did growing up. Instead of applying it to my scalp, I’m applying it to my hair strands. My goal is to find out if grease can be used after all – not as a scalp coating, but as a sealant to lock moisture it.
