Roll & Tuck Fro Hawk, Up-Do's, w/ a splash of Celebrity Naturals

Got this look from CJANEAW's youtube I was on CurlyNikki's blog & fell in love with this look. When I saw the look from a far I just had to watch the video & try it myself, so the very next morning I got up to try it. Now I know I could have made it better but I was trying it out & I would just have to do this style more often. What CJANEAW did was section her hair from side to side straight across the head using her fingers "I sectioned 6 sections, rolled & bobby pin each piece in place" "but you can section how many sections you desire" then she smooth the edges & brush to the center held in place with more bobby pins to create an faux hawk. She calls this look the "Roll & Tuck Hawk" & so far I'm digging it, my twist out was getting old & I haven't combed my hair so this style protects my ends as well as gives me a whole other look.

This look here I was going out & just got tired of wearing my hair out in the the same styles so I decided to try an updo so I bobby pinned up the back mid-way & a little off my face

In these three photos I just let it all hang out this is an twist out nothing special.

This was for an wedding I was gonna get a weave but just decided to go with my natural hair. I went to my stylist & told her I wanted this look which is a twist out. She twisted & pinned up the right side & back of my hair. In most cases I will air dry but due to the lack of time I sat under the dryer & after the look was complete I had her to add the twist in pearls to match my jewelry.

Once again is my banana clipped faux hawk for those days I just don't feel like re-twisting my hair.

Now I chose to go natural on my own like two years ago but these ladies listed below are such an inspiration to continue this journey no matter how difficult it may seem

Tracy Ellis Ross's hair on "Girlfriends" was enough for anyone to become natural her hair was always HOTTT, bless her stylist cause her hair always looked healthy. I love the fullness of it all. can't wait til my locs get longer.

Now she's an celebrity hair stylist by the name of "Tippi Shorter" I saw her in one of my black hair magazines & has been fascinated by her hair every since I saw it once in this big thick bun her hair looks amazing.

Miss "Solange Knowles" just had the urge to cut it all off & be free just goes to show you hair isn't what makes a woman wonderful.

"lauren Hill" I have loved this look for years it seems to be soo care free I just love the vibe of this style.

"Mya's" loose wavy texture

Remember "Maia Campbell" from In The House" w/ LL Cool J....back in the 90's I use to also watch the show to see what was her next style move. I though it was so cool to see an pretty dark skin girl with beautiful hair that was all her own.

"Leela James" is rocking this fro so there you have it, it doesn't matter the texture of you hair it's all in how you care for & rock it I love her vibe.

"Kenya Moore" hair is out of this world beautiful...I remember her saying I believe in an interview that when she was out with her light skin friends people thought she was wearing a weave & her friends had the real hair when in fact her hair was 100% her own & all her friends had extentions.

Miss "Jill Scott" rocks her natural locs like no other.

I can't believe "Janet" really cut her hair it is stunning on her, I really have to get use to this.

"Jada's" pixie cut back in the day was was happening.

"India Arie" this chick is really not her hair I just love that message behind that statement.

"Eva" the Diva now this girl has had the best short natural funky looks by for, the style- the color has been amazing every since topmodel her hair has been on point.

"Corinne Bailey Rae" hair is big, full of life, & the perfect length.

"Chilli's" hair is gorgeous she rocks her natural hair like no other her waves are always in the perfect place.

Now "Bre" from topmodel hair is just inspiring my hair looks just like this when curly & her length is crazy I just can't wait til I achieve my hair journey to get to these results.

Summer Shampoo's & Conditioners/Hair Oils

For my scalp I use....a base of either Almond Oil or Jojoba Oil with 5-10 drop of Peppermint Oil depending on how many oz of based oil used......
My hair oil consist of.....a base of Virgin Coconut Oil with 5-10 drops of Lemon Oil just to add a clean scent. The drops of oil depends on how much base oil used.

My hair pomade features.....a base of Shea Butter, 1 tbs of Olive Oil, 5-10 drop of Lavender Oil (again depending on how much base oil used), 5 drops of Orange Oil ( just to add an citrus scent), 1/3 cup of Coconut Oil, & 1tbs of Jojoba Oil. The container shown between the Olive Oil & Coconut Oil is my homemade finished product.

For this summer I just started using the Pantene curls line this product is okay nothing too special it's suppose to define your curls but for me I don't see much of a difference, but heeey I'm just gonna use it til I use it all maybe later I will see an result.

Also since the Pantene Curls isn't a must have for me I will switch off to the Organix products from time to time just to see what product I'm feeling more. These shampoos & conditioners smell great & I wanna try more collections from this line. & the great thing about these products is that they are Sulfate FREE is an blend of Organic Active we'll see what comes out on top if there are any suggestions please feel free to comment

Two stand corn rolled hair

This is another two strand twist look I do to achieve my wavy texture I simply two strand twist 6 corn rolls & pin the back from left to right.I use the same styling products from.... & I just air dry over night & one good thing I get from this look oppose to the individual 10 (5 twist on each side) two strand twist is that I can wear this out & it kinda looks like a style
The front view.

The back view...before I pinned the back from left to right. I braid 3 twist together on each side before I bobby pin them just so the ends are protected.

Side view.

Another side view.....& to set my twist I used my water & conditioner spray bottle "Organic Root Simulator" lock & twist gel, & I also now use Moroccanoil from time to time, but I'm always gonna use my Coconut oil mixes which you can find my daily hair regimen in "Natural Hair For Life" blog.

I was just playing around with my bowed head band here....also check out my "Hair Accessories Code 10" blog
