Flips-Hair-How-I-went from-Curly-to- Straight-oohlalablog-9


Natural hair is so versatile. You can rock your curls and then flip your straight hair. I started this natural hair process four years ago and it took a while to transition. I didn’t do a big chop, instead I wore weaves to get me through that rough period. Unlike many of my natural sisters, I don’t rock my curls often. I’m a natural girl that keeps her hair as straight as possible. So why no perm it? I know that’s what your thinking, but since I ditched the relaxers my hair has grown tremendously. More importantly I have healthy hair. I also love the option to rock my curls when I feel like it! And that’s exactly what I did. Check out how I went from curly to straight. The story behind my process is pretty funny.

I want cute nails , but I hate waiting, so nail strips have been my go-to-products for #ManicureMondays. It’s easy, breezy, and drying time is pretty much non-existent. I’ve tried just about every nail strip out there, but I’m just getting around to  Kiss Nail Dress nail strips. So here are my initial thoughts.  Continue Reading »
