We all know that edges ain’t loyal. I lost all my edges (and more) after I had Harper about a year and a half ago. You can read about it HERE. I’m happy to report that my edges have returned *praise break*. It was a long journey of trying to cover up my bald spots without wearing a wig. I did try rocking a wig once but I kept moving it around like I was wearing a hat…not a good look when you’re in public. This year I’m letting it all hang out this summer. I’ve been weave and braid free for over a month. I know that doesn’t sound long but with two girls, trying to work out and a busy social calendar, it seems like forever. Because I’m a lazy naturalista, my go to style is a low or high bun. I just wash, brush and go. With that being said, I’ve been going through a lot of gel and edge control. I thought I would share my favorites.

Up until recent years, curly hair was not considered beautiful hair. Since society did not embrace natural hair back in the day, our parents would straighten our hair. I wasn’t even 5 years old when I got my first “perm”. I believed if my hair wasn’t straight and long it didn’t look good. It wasn’t until I went away to college that I decided that I was going to do my hair how I wanted, not what someone else thought I should do. For years, I wore my hair as short as I could get it and even shaved the back. I also rocked a TWA (teeny weeny afro) in the late 90’s before it was a thing.
Crochet hair styles are my new thing. I didn’t think there could be a more stylish and convenient way to wear my hair outside of a weave but I’ve found it. Latched + Hooked has helped me get through some tough times with my hair dealing with postpartum hair loss (HERE). I’m happy to be rocking Latched + Hooked latest addition to the family, the Twist-Out Curl. The styles that I can do with this hair are endless. Check out my favorite 7 ways to wear Latched + Hooked Twist-Out Curl.
I remember when I was little, I was rarely happy with my hair. My mom relaxed my hair when I was about 3 and I had a curl by the age of 5. I pray none of those photos ever resurface. It took some time but it wasn’t until college that I was happy with my hair. I’m doing my best to make sure Peyton and Harper love their hair. With the help of Just For Me Natural Hair Nutrition collection, I wanted to share 5 tips to encourage little girls to love their hair.
It’s important to start early to protect our little girls hair. Peyton is no stranger to sleeping in hair bonnets. She’s been wearing a satin scarf or kids hair bonnet since she was two. Now it’s time for Harper and all her gorgeous curls to to get on board. I’ve been a longtime fan of Silky Wraps and I’m excited about their cute turbans for kids & moms.
