I Bought a Denman Brush!!!

I ordered a Denman brush off of the other day and I am super excited for it to get here! I have heard a lot of good things about this brush and I hear it defines your curl pattern and gets rid of shed hairs. I can't wait to try it out and see how it works.

Shingling vs Shrinkage

Everybody knows I am a huge fan of the Miss Jessie's products. I have been doing my wash and go's with the Curly Pudding then shingling my hair. If you don't know what that is, shingling is combing the product through your hair, whether it's with your fingers or an actual comb. I started to get nervous a few weeks ago, because my hair was getting too big with the shingling technique. I was actually overwhelmed so my sister suggested another technique. She told me I should just leave my hair alone after I use the styling creme and see how it looks. I absolutely loved my results! Last night I used MJ Stretch Silkening Creme for my wash and go and I liked that too. Both Curly Pudding and Stretch Silkening Creme are very similar. At the top there are two pictures for comparison of shingling and shrinkage. The first was taken today and I have more shrinkage going on. Shrinkage is actually my friend now lol and I am no longer afraid of it. The second picture shows how my hair turned out with the shingling method. Right now I think I'm going to stop shingling my hair until it actually gets longer and hangs more.

Just dropping in!

Hey y'all, I'm just dropping in because I made a new vlog for YouTube about my twist out and mini frohawk. I thought it was cute so I wanted to show everybody. I swear my hair grows really fast, because I did a twist out a month ago and I have way more hair this month than last month. I was able to do big twists too. Here's the link to my video.

My Biggest Pet Peeve!!

This may offend some folks, but I just can't keep it in anymore. I am a new vlogger on YouTube and I have befriended some women on this site with TWAs as well (my youtube name is princesasosweet). One thing I'm noticing is that a lot of women are trying to create a bunch of hairstyles with a TWA. I just don't get it! Why can't you just let your hair be? Leave it alone until you get more length. That's all I really had to say today, it's almost Spring Break for me. I am going to Montego Bay, Jamaica and I will take some pictures so I can post them. I am so excited to go swimming with my natural hair! All these years, I've been taught to avoid the pool, rain, hell water in general, but I get to fully experience being on vacation this time. Hooray! :) See y'all in a week!

Why is this man smiling at me like that?

I went to the gym today and was looking pretty rough after sweating so much. I went to get something to eat right after I left the gym and this man making my food kept staring me. He was smiling at me a lot and flirting and trying to know more about me. I felt pretty darn good at this moment. I am still in shock that any guy would be interested in me after being so gross after the gym. It also made me feel good that my natural hair was cute to him too. I love it! :) In the first picture, my hair was wet, so don't pay attention to the white stuff. I still use the same hair products. I love me some Miss Jessie's! My hair always looks and feels great!
