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.

Is Having 4 C Hair A Competition?

By haircare No Comments

EZ Detangler vs Felicia Leatherwood Brush on 4c Hair

EZ Detangler vs Felicia Leatherwood Brush on 4c Hair

By haircare No Comments

In this video I’ll be comparing the EZ detangler brush with Felicia Leatherwood’s new 2.0 detangling brush released earlier this month.

There are two main criticisms of YouTubers reviewing the EZ detangler brush. The first is the positioning of the brush; The website states for thicker hair types you should begin vertically, then horizontally to release tangles. Many creators weren’t beginning vertically. The second is the hair must be completely saturated with conditioner and water before beginning. Many creators (including myself) did not saturate their hair. Today I have done both.

I’ll be comparing each detangling brush on performance and price.

How To Get the Perfect Twist Out

How To Get The Perfect Twist Out On Type 4 Hair

By haircare No Comments

This video teaches step by step on how to get a perfect twist out on type 4 hair. 

I have 4c hair and one of my favorite low manipulation hairstyles are twist outs. It’s kind of a two-for-one hairstyle. You can enjoy your twists for a period of time and right before it’s time to wash your hair, you can unravel the twists and have a beautifully defined twist out. 

Twist outs are so easy and simple to do. If you follow my technique, you’ll have a fail-proof twist out that will give you LYYYFE Kings and Queens.

covid-19 experience

I Tested Positive For Coronavirus. This is My Experience.

By lifestyle No Comments

MY COVID-19 EXPERIENCE

Some of you may be aware that I tested positive for Covid-19. Coronavirus is a very new, highly contagious, and tricky virus. Many people are asymptomatic, and others like myself show signs and symptoms. I’m a healthy person, thankfully, and I did everything in my power to prevent getting it. I washed my hands, wore a mask everywhere, and social distanced — Yet, I still contracted it.

Today I’m sharing my experience with covid-19, my symptoms, and natural remedies I took to feel better. I always recommend contacting your doctor if you feel you are infected. It can affect people in a myriad of ways, so my experience may be completely different from someone else. Also follow the guidelines of the CDC. I truly believe if we work together we can beat this virus!

PLEASE STAY SAFE

Thank you to everyone that reached out to me to wish me well. I feel blessed to have a community that cares about my family’s well being.

This video is not meant to scare you, replace medical advice, or diagnosis. Please consult your doctor if you suspect you are infected with covid-19. Continue to follow guidelines outlined by the  CDC.
